But I note that he's doing the same mealy-mouthed lawyerisms that got him into this mess in the first place. Note carefully the wording:
"I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me."He's not sorry that he lied. He's sorry that people got screwed because of his lie.
Growing up, I was taught that a real apology starts with "I was wrong...". This is a person who is congenitally incapable of admitting any sort of wrongdoing on his own part, or accepting any real blame for anything. He has given the American people a classic non-apology designed not to accept responsibility for his wrongdoing, but to deflect criticism from him.
Apology not accepted, Mr. President.
