Recently, there have been several diaries on daily Kos with titiles that are variations on "I'm sorry" or "I apologize".

It will not come as a shock that none of these were written by Mitt Romney.  He's not here.  But he also entitled his autobiography "No Apologies". What sort of human titles an autobiography "No Apologies"? Who has not done something they are sorry for?

Certainly Unfit Mitt has much that he ought to be sorry for.

1. He is a felon and a bully.
2. He protested in favor of the Vietnam War, but when his draft deferment was turned down, he ran to France. Then he lied about it, saying he was living in poverty when he really lived in a palace.
3. As Massachusetts governor, he led the state to very near the bottom of job growth.
4. At Bain, he fired thousands and thousands of people. All part of the job of a vampire capitalist.
5. As candidate, he lied about his primary opponents, repeatedly.
6. He also lied, repeatedly, about Obama.

just off the top of my head.

But, while few people are as awful as Mitt Romney, all of us have done things we should apologize for. It's how people are. I certainly have.

And he has issued psuedo-apologies for the Cranbrook incident that he says he doesn't remember. But his apology started with "If" which makes it not an apology.

So, what kind of person titles an autobiography "No apologies"?

A sociopath.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
