For John, BLUF: I hope the next Administration is less apologetic. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Ms Shoshana Weissmann and The Weekly Standard we have Biden Apologizes to Mexico for GOP Comments. From the beginning of the article:
CNN reports that on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden spoke in Mexico City and "came close to offering an apology for comments made by Republicans about Mexico and Mexican immigrants on the campaign trail."So, having learned from the guy from Steam City, I hearby apologize to the Citizens of Canada, Cuba and Mexico, and Economic Immigrants enroute through those nations, for any comments by our current Vice President, who is a worthy successor to Alexander Throttlebottom.I almost feel obliged to apologize for some of what my political colleagues said," Biden said alongside Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. "It's a heated campaign season and I just want you to know, Mr. President, that the most heated rhetoric you've heard from competitors for the nomination for president is not who we are as the American people. It is not the view that is the view of the majority of the Acan people. It's the exact opposite. It's the opposite view.But in 2007, Biden called Mexico a "dysfunctional society."
