Rod – That was my problem with his second apology. When he said:
“A poor choice of words conveyed to some the impression that I embraced the discarded policies of the past. Nothing could be further from the truth, and I apologize to anyone who was offended by my statement.”
There was no moral content to it. It sounded like he no longer embraced these “discarded policies” because they were discarded. It’s sort of like saying I know longer drive the Honda I discarded in the past. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
Nothing in there about whether or not the Honda was good or bad.
