When did “I regret” become an acceptable substitute for “I apologize” or “Please forgive me”? Politicians especially, on both sides of the political fence, seem incapable of truly apologizing today. I am sure they feel if they admit they made a mistake, then their public will think less of them. Not true.
"Regret" is used because that is what they feel. They fear they may have harmed THEMSELVES with a foolish remark. They are not sorry nor do they ask for forgiveness.
"I regret" means I got caught and I'm sorry I GOT CAUGHT! "I apologize" admits they where wrong. It's kinda like the difference between "asking forgiveness" and "repenting".
Words have meaning, she did not apologize, she regrets she said such a stupid thing.

This gal needs to resign right now. She is not serving the public. She is an activist. Resign or fire her.

Why is this kid getting a microphone at the UN and on major talk shows? Because he has an unusual name, Aztec heritage (really? Aztec?), and is well-spoken? Son, why don’t you complete your education, really study climate science, and then come back and talk to us. Your law suit is going nowhere. You should be sued for bringing a frivolous case.

A lot of folks trying to make this more complicated than we all know it is. Snap out of it!

He was holding the weapon wrong – that was his problem. You aren’t supposed to extend your pinky finger, dude. Save that for the tea party after.
The only Tea Party he would partake in is one where he lies about them, otherwise it's iced tea (you don't have to stick out your pinkie for that).

I’m trying real hard, but it is tough for us peons to feel sorry for any of you red carpet folk, you dig?

You missed it by a mile, Bernie.This isn’t about gun control. This is about Islamic terrorists operating at will within our borders. Gun control won’t keep them from having bombs and weapons. The answer is to declare war on these vermin and take the fight to them – something you and the democratic party does not have the stomach for.

Not my place to judge him. I’m just listening to his words and concluding that he does not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Nope. He doesn’t get it. Like so many other things.
One of those judge not lest words weave your judgement impotent, eh . . .

Oh,I don’t think even Donald is stupid enough to ask Sarah to be his running mate.

Pull this article.It is ridiculous to suggest that people look up at the sun to see this for all of the reasons you later identify. Why not just describe the transit of mercury and direct them to the NASA website. C’mon!
Blaze editor: Huh. Really? I hadnt thought of that.

Trump has the emotional maturity of a 13-year-old.His aggressive-passive style of dissing someone and then telling you that he really likes them in the same sentence is getting really old. Like listening to a teenage brat. Glad my remote has a mute button.
I think he's closer to a third grader. I can't unsee the faces he made at the debates. Frightening that he is running to represent the people of this nation. It always seem to come down to no choice at all.

Coulter needs to go away. No one cares a wit what she thinks.
Then don't watch him. Problem solved. You're welcome.

What is interesting to me is that a few months ago if you made a comment on the lunacy of Mr. Trump on this site you would be jumped on by a bunch of his supporters. As I scroll down the comments today, I see almost total agreement that the man is unfit for office. But is it too late? Does he already have the nomination locked up? I hope the media are wrong about that. If it’s Trump vs. Hillary, I am not excited about our country’s prospects.
Well said, Wordweaver.....and see MY comment above.
Maybe some people are wising up, but I still see a whole lot of blind support for Trump, both here and on other sites. If Trump wins the nomination, Hillary will be president. I have few doubts about that. Most of the people in this country can't stand Hillary, but even more can't stand Trump.
