President Obama’s lame apology to Americans who are losing their health insurance policies (he said in a recent interview that he regrets “we weren’t as clear as we needed to be” about the reforms of his landmark health care restructuring) sounds vaguely familiar to me. It reminds me of the nonapology of actress Jane Fonda for her traitorous actions in Vietnam in 1972. She later said that her actions were misunderstood by U.S. veterans. Really? These actions included gleefully sitting behind an anti-aircraft gun in North Vietnam as she gleefully pretended to shoot down American aircraft.
