Shallow Presidential Apologies

W was busy trying to divert media attention from his falling house of cards by "apologizing" for the situation at Walter Reed Hospital. Trouble is, this apology seems to be ringing a bit shallow. Have a look and see what you think:
I met some of the soldiers who had been housed in Building 18. I was disturbed by their accounts of what went wrong. It is not right to have someone volunteer to wear our uniform and not get the best possible care. I apologize for what they went through, and we're going to fix the problem.
"I apologize for what they went through," is not enough of an apology if you ask me. Where's the mea culpa? Where's the admonition of staff? Where does the buck stop?

This leads me to to...drum roll please...

Bush apologies:

1. I'm sorry it's all your fault.

2. I screw up everything I touch. What did you expect?

3. I killed lots of people who needed the death penalty applied in Texas. They were Americans, too. (Some of them.)

4. You elected me. Stop whining.
