Apologists

Since the election of W, i have encountered several instances where "Americans" felt incline to apologize to the world for the US electing Bush. I am going to skip the part where they are sore losers, as that is obvious. What is inappropriate is the condescention and lack of respect these apologists are showing to their neighbors and countrymen, as well as the ideals upon which this nation was established. Again i must touch back to the concept of tolerance and respect; if they cannot afford this to others, then how will they ask for it for themselves? Moreso how could they possibly believe that foreigners hold the moral or intellectual highground that would require any americans to apologize to them for? And how could any american want a president that would cater to foreign powers?
We elect our leadership based on how they would make our lives better, safer; for us first, and if others too would benefit, then even better. No one will look after us if we are not willing to do it for ourselves. Any vote otherwise is treason.
I am sorely disappointed and slightly disgusted at these apologists.

There are so many ways that this misses the point that I can't even begin to name them. When did you become so partisan, I wonder?

i am not partisan on this topic. Had W lost i would still never apologize for myself or any other americans. Didn't do it when Clinton won, don't see a place for it now.
