LETTER: Sorry about Obama!

Throughout his administration, Obama has spanned the globe expressing apologies for our great nation, as if America had much to be regretful about. There are many of us who take issue with these insinuations and exaggerations; however, our views fail to get any degree of exposure or publicity that matches the president's "bully pulpit power" along with a liberal national media performing as his cheering section.

So, on behalf of the proud American citizens who love this country for its exemplary history and its extraordinary humanitarian track record, I am compelled to express apologies for the many unnecessary and unwarranted apologies that Obama has needlessly expressed.

Let me make this perfectly clear, I am apologizing "about" him, not "to" him, nor "for" him for all his heedless words and actions. My apologies are "about" a president that is not expressing the "will of the people" whom he was elected to represent.

Although he may not be sorry for his actions, we are! Our great nation deserves praise and recognition, not apologies, for its historical role of protecting the world against tyranny and aggression.

We have every reason to be proud of our country, as well documented in Tom Brokaw's book, "The Greatest Generation." My generation "gets it!" Unfortunately, many of our citizens in subsequent generations have been misinformed and misled, not only by the media, but by the "omissions" and "spin" that has been put in the teaching, or lack thereof, of American history in our school systems.
