George W. Bush's Passionate Kisses from King Abdullah

Passionate Kisses!

No tongue in cheek?  Really?

No tongue in cheek? Really?

"George W. Bush" never apologized or bowed to another country.

I keep hearing some republicans referring to "Obama's apology tour." And I read a statement "Bush 'NEVER' apologized or bowed to another country."

What apology tour?

Every time this LIE is told, the truth needs to be told. That is my reason for this hub.

Who told the "LIE" Apology Tour?

“It goes back to 2009, when Obama spoke in Cairo, calling for “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world.”

Karl Rove responded in a Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled “The President’s Apology Tour.” Almost instantly, the right-wing blogosphere began savaging the president’s attempt at diplomacy, taking up Rove’s “apology tour” moniker. Characteristically implying that the U.S. president should demand that the world prostate itself in his presence, Charles Krauthammer wrote that Obama had circled the globe with a “basket of mea culpa.”

I read where someone said 'Bush never went on an apologetic rant or bowed down to foreign countries.'

Take it with a grain of salt:

1. regard something as exaggerated; believe only part of something.

Take it with a grain of salt

Not casting aspersions

GWB would have his henchmen make up lies about our President, saying Obama was apologizing to other countries, as a smoke screen in case someone would cast aspersions on him for the fact that GWB himself would rather hold hands, bow and kiss passionately.

No tongue cheek, maybe just tongue in mouth.

Bush never went on an apologetic rant or bowed down to foreign countries

Telling a lie long enough will NOT make it true

If the person who told the lie that President Obama went on an 'apology tour' and the people believing the lie, keep propogating that lie, that will make more people believe it, but it will never make it the truth!

It is my hope that more people Fact Check the lie.

It makes me sick to my stomach to hear this lie and know that so many people believe it!

When Romney attacked Obama for an apology tour that never happened during one of the presidential debates, I thought how easy it was to make this 'wannabe president' believe this lie, or did he believe it because he wanted to believe it or did he know it was a lie all along?

At one of the presidential debates Romney said: "the reason I called it an apology tour is because you went to Middle East and you flew to Egypt and to Saudi Arabia and to Turkey and Iraq. And, by the way, you skipped Israel, our closest friend in the region. But you went to the other nations. And, by the way: They noticed that you skipped Israel. And then in those nations, and on Arabic TV, you said that America had been "dismissive and derisive." You said that "on occasion America had dictated to other nations." Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators."

Take it with a grain of sale.

“A constitution of government, once changed from freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever”

— John Adams

My hope!

My hope is that every time you hear an untruth you will rebuke it. That every time you are told a lie you will correct it and make it known that it is a lie.

C E Clark from North Texas on June 19, 2020:

We're going to need an entire herd of people to go out and make apologies once we get rid of the illegitimate president currently taking up space in the White House. Trump has so deeply offended our allies in every way he could think up. I'm not sure one apology will suffice per leader.

While Trump never apologizes for anything, he's kept busy with his head up Putin's backside, while regularly insulting our allies that have been there for us when bad things happened.
