Republican to Gabby Giffords: “stay out of my towns”. The Dems all insist that they were in Newtown to lend aid and comfort to the victims of the recent school horror but what, they were all of the same party by coincidence?
Still, while I think the Republican was right to call them out on this bit of grandstanding I wish she’d have shown a little backbone when issuing the standard non-apology for these sort of incidents:
“The remarks I made regarding Congresswoman Gifford’s visit were insensitive and if I offended anyone I truly apologize,” Hovey said in a prepared statement released Monday afternoon.
Well of course you offended people, lady, that was the point . Is there a politician left in America who can denounce his opponent without then pretending to backtrack with one of these “if I offended anyone” statements? If you’re sorry, say so; if not, stick to your guns.
