Let's All Apologize To Obama For Misunderstanding Him  —  Apparently Obama spoke in a way that was widely misunderstood when he blasted Hillary over the weekend, and is now being criticized for it, which seems so unfair.  After all, we who are barely worthy ought to apologize for having misunderstood him, right?
