    An academic tries to make the case that our peripatetic president’s business trips abroad do not constitute an “apology tour,” as some of President Obama’s critics have often alleged. “Obama always links the expansion of democratic citizenship with economic development and praise of the free market,” Martin J. Medhurst, a professor at Baylor claims in an article which appeared in Citizens and Statesmen last year. Citizens and Statesmen is a journal published by St. Vincent’s College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. “In Russia, he claimed that ‘the free market is the greatest force for creating and distributing wealth that the world has...

    Barack Obama apologized to Cuban president Raul Castro during their phone conversation after the American commander in chief's opening remarks. Speaking to reporters at his final White House press briefing of 2014 Friday afternoon, Obama gave more details about his phone call with the communist leader of Cuba earlier this week before the announcement of a change in U.S. policy on the Caribbean island nation. Obama began the phone call with Castro with what he described as 15 minutes of opening comments. It was the first conversation between the heads of state in both countries since 1961.

    U.S. and Afghan officials reportedly have reached a tentative agreement on a critical security pact -- which would include President Obama writing a letter to the Afghan people acknowledging mistakes during the "war on terror." According to Reuters, an Afghan spokesman said Tuesday that Obama agreed to write the letter, to be presented with the draft security pact at a meeting of tribal elders later this week. The New York Times, citing a spokesman for Afghan President Hamid Karzai, reported that Secretary of State John Kerry proposed the letter in a conversation with Karzai. Karzai asked that Obama sign it,...

    President Obama this week apologized for problems that have plagued the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, but it wasn’t the first time he expressed regret. Below is a list of Obama’s apologies, dating back to his time on the presidential campaign trail. Oct. 8, 2013 Obama apologized to the American people for the government shutdown. At a press conference Obama apologized for the shutdown, but refused to give in to what he characterized as “hostage taking” of House Republicans. May 2, 2013 Obama apologized to California Attorney General Kamala Harris. He had called her “America’s best looking attorney general.”...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A top official at the U.S. Internal Revenue Service on Thursday acknowledged that it was "embarrassing" how much the tax agency spent on training videos, including a Star Trek spoof, and other lavish expenses during a 2010 conference in California. Faris Fink, commissioner of the agency's small business and self-employed division, told lawmakers the videos, which cost more than $50,000 to produce, were well-intentioned but in hindsight inappropriate. "It's embarrassing. I apologize," said Fink, who played the character Spock in the Star Trek parody that included a tax-themed skit. "I regret the fact that they were made."...

    The Benghazi scandal is easy to understand, and that’s what makes it so dangerous for the White House. Simply, the Obama administration’s narrative — that al-Qaeda was on the run, that Hosni Mubarak had to go, and that the Arab Spring was a good thing — was proven false when four brave Americans were killed. Because the administration was a slave to their own narrative, rather than aggressively fighting al-Qaeda, rather than recognizing the $50 billion investment in Mubarak’s stability, and rather than realizing that the upheaval they sponsored in the Middle East empowered Muslim Brotherhood radicals, they lied repeatedly...

    President Obama indignantly denied Mitt Romney's charge in Monday's final debate that his foreign policy amounts to "an apology tour" around the world. "This has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign," Obama protested. "And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it, governor, has said this is not true." In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority. • Samantha Power.

    Sorry, fact checkers at Associated Press: you are wrong about Barack Obama’s claim that Mitt Romney’s accusation that Obama went on an “apology tour” was a “whopper” (of a lie). You sniffed, “Romney has repeatedly and wrongly accused the president of traveling the world early in his presidency and apologizing for U.S. behavior. Obama didn’t say ‘sorry’ in those travels.” An “Apology Tour” does not mean Obama had to literally say the word "sorry" during those visits. But as my Guide Book on Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech details, on numerous stops Obama said things like America “has shown arrogance” (Strasbourg,...

    You can argue that sometimes a nation should apologize for some past conduct. You can argue that this is appropriate, but not on foreign soil. But to insist that Obama hasn’t apologized repeatedly for the United States both here and abroad is simply wrong. Frankly, he has done more of this self-flagellation in more places than any other president. It is a record that should never be broken.

Though Mr. Obama's carefully scripted "grand gesture" before a thoroughly screened audience in Cairo was simultaneously translated into a half-dozen tongues and broadcast around the world, it wasn't enough to push the bin Laden commentary off Islamic Web sites. That's because bin Laden "gets it" and Mr. Obama doesn't.

    Obama gave a 56-minute speech before a Muslim audience in Cairo that drew a standing ovation. The speech was a continuation of the themes of atoning for America's past. Here are some of the key negative points in his speech that will backfire on both the president and the United States: Obama attacked the decision to go to war in Iraq as a "war of choice" without even mentioning the fact that Saddam was failing to comply with several Security Council resolutions. This was completely gratuitous, wrong and unnecessary. There are still more than 100,000 American troops fighting in Iraq...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Do you know how sick I am of Obama? I'm going to get to Obama. I'm going to get to the sham of a show in Germany. We're going to talk more about the sham of a speech yesterday in Cairo. Did you see Angela Merkel standing next to the guy? Put this in perspective. She was standing there, and she's not happy because they're not getting along and they haven't gotten along ever. So there he is, he's at Buchenwald today, the concentration camp, and he is beating Germany up, he's ripping them to shreds over...

    (snip) - Obama attacked the decision to go to war in Iraq - "a war of choice" - it "reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible" etc, without even mentioning the fact Saddam Hussein was failing to comply with several Security Council resolutions. This was completely gratuitous, wrong and unnecessary. There are still over 100,000 American troops fighting in Iraq, and this kind of message will only serve to undermine morale. As President, Obama should have paid tribute to his own soldiers who are putting their lives on the...

    <p>Americans woke up this week to news that President Obama is now describing the U.S. as--if you take into account the number of Muslim Americans--"one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."</p> <p>Going strictly by the numbers, President Obama is wrong. America's Muslim population is variously estimated at somewhere in the range of about 3 million to a high-end guess of 6 million, which puts it way below not only all major Muslim states, but below Russia, China and--as my colleague Andrew McCarthy points out--Burkina Faso.</p>
  • Barack Obama should stop apologising for America

    It is time for President Obama to recognise that his strategy is weakening his country and making the United States more vulnerable to attack, says Nile Gardiner. No leader in American history has gone to greater lengths than Barack Obama to make amends for his own country. From condemnation of American “arrogance” in a speech in Strasbourg to acknowledging U.S. “mistakes” before millions of Muslims on Arab television, Obama has rarely missed an opportunity to apologise for the actions of the American people. President Obama has elevated the art of national self-loathing to new heights, and seems to delight in...

    Eh. American pride is smart retail politics, especially vis-a-vis Islam — according to CNN’s latest poll, the Muslim world is viewed less favorably in the U.S. now than it was in 2002 — but even so, this is a missed opportunity. Rather than Hannitized boilerplate about America being a force for good, Mitt should have explained why, given the irreconcilable differences in the Middle East and the entrenched jihadist elements that benefit from conflict, an apology won’t accomplish much of anything except flattering the left’s dogma about “root causes.” Instead he resorts to an argument about how self-abasement projects weakness,...

    President Obama will be visiting two places in Germany on June 5: the concentration camp at Buchenwald and Dresden. It is hard for me to convey how tactless, bad, and wrong I think this juxtaposition is. In fact, I do not think that Obama should go to Dresden at all. As I’ve noted in a paper just published by the Heritage Foundation, the Anglo-American bombing raid on Dresden on February 13, 1945, is the subject of a great deal of mythology, most of it concocted by the Nazis and spread by the Communists after the war. But mythology matters, because...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) accused President Obama of embarking on a "tour of apology" around the globe at the expense of America's national security. "It's not because America hasn't made mistakes — we have," the former Republican presidential contender said, explaining his criticism, "but because America's mistakes are overwhelmed by what America has meant to the hopes and aspirations of people throughout the world."
