The continued belief among conservative radicals that President Obama conducted an “apology” tour early in his administration proves that these people are not really interested in the truth.
While the president did make comments indicating that his administration was going to be conducting a different type of diplomacy than his predecessor had, in no way were apologies made. Karl Rove, the nefarious architect behind George II’s rise to power, created this myth by misquoting and taking out of context comments Obama made in different speeches around the world. The Washington Post analyzed these accusations in a Feb. 22, 2011 piece and easily dispelled them. This is easily found through a Google search.
Repeating falsehoods is a poor way to make your case.
