While Democrats Are Apologizing...

...how about apologizing for:

- Preserving and enhancing the legal-standing of the institution of slavery in the ante-bellum South against all humanitarian calls for reform;
- Extending the peculiar institution of slavery into Texas and Missouri;
- Attempting to extend the institution of slavery into California, Kansas and other US territories and states;
- Extending into free-states the slave-masters' legal right to retrieve their "property", escaped slaves. (Dred Scott);
- Initiating the secession of the Southern states to preserve slavery upon the election of Abraham Lincoln, a Republican with abolitionist views;
- Undermining the North's resolve to preserve the Union and emancipate the slaves (Democrat Copperheads);
- Terrorizing freed black Republican politicians and voters during Reconstruction in order to ensure election of white Democrats;
- Disenfranchising black voters to make the entire South a one-party state (Democrat), a political monopoly not broken until quite recently;
Via their control of Southern state governments, instituting Jim Crow laws in the 1880s and preserving them until 1965 (America's apartheid);
- Governing the South in a manner that tolerated, concealed and surreptitiously-supported racial terrorists such as the Ku Klux Klan, who murdered southern civil rights activists;
- Resisting Federal enforcement to end racial segregation as initiated by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower.

In particular:

- Sen. Robert Byrd has admitted having been a member of the Ku Klux Klan and he filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights act supported by Republicans in greater proportions than by Democrats;
- Al Gore's father, Sen. Albert Gore Sr. also joined Sen. Byrd in the filibuster of the 1964 Civil Rights Act;
- Sen. Ted Kennedy's father, Democrat Joseph Kennedy, the US Ambassador to Britain, was rabidly anti-Semitic and considered by the Nazi Ambassador to be "Germany's best friend" in London."
- President Clinton's mentor, Sen. J. William Fulbright, opposed Civil Rights legislation proposed by the Republicans, as reported by PBS Frontline: "the early civil rights legislation, Fulbright opposed that and went along with the majority Southern (Democrat) view"


Or perhaps they could apologize for unwavering support of abortion, for demolishing poor families through feel-good entitlement vote-buying, for eroding national security and destroying the institutions which provide same, for raping the Constitution, for peddling race and class warfare whenever something is needed to distract from crime rates, etc.

So much to apologize for---so little shame.
