The "Apology" drill again!

They Don't Apologize

Dan Froomkin, writing in his blog "White House Briefing" over the Washington Post moans:

"There are at least two reasons why no one should expect any apologies from Karl Rove or the White House for Rove's controversial comments Tuesday night, in which he described the liberal approach to national security as being weak and possibly even treasonous.

1) This White House doesn't apologize.

2) Why apologize when you said exactly what you meant to say?

Karl Rove didn't get George W. Bush this far just by luck. Rove has a brilliant and so far unbeatable strategy when it comes to political warfare: He doesn't defend his candidate's weaknesses, he attacks his opponent's strengths. Unapologetically.

Consider the 2004 campaign, when Rove was faced with a Vietnam problem. A war hero was running against his boss, who had opted to stay well out of harm's way. Rather than defend, Rove attacked -- and put John Kerry on the defensive."

I'll leave alone the fact that as far as I'm concerned I know about war heros, and John Kerry is no war hero.

But I digress.

Remember last year when the MSM was on the "Mr. President, is there anything you would like to apologize for?" trip. He thoroghly pissed them off when he wouldn't say, "I'm sorry." They 'crucified' him for it. Mr. Froomkin here is just trying to drive in another nail.

I guess Rove should use the "Durbin Example" of an apology (I'm sorry, wink, wink, nudge-nudge..), but for what? Here Mr. Froomkin get's it right - Rove said what he said, meant what he said, because - hold on to yourself Mr. Froomkin, but it is true.

Of course in the rest of his "briefing" Mr. Froomkin "alerts" us to all the stuff Bush is planning for the future ....ooooh, evil Bush!

*Democrats have really become a cartoonish party, like Jack Nicolson's "Joker" character in Batman. Cute, cunning, and crazy as hell.
