George W. Bush's Passionate Kisses from King Abdullah
"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.
Do you believe every thing that is said about a person you dislike and do you propagate the lie?
“A constitution of government, once changed from freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever”— John Adams
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.
