Ron Johnson and Obama's 'Apology' and a Dead Dog

Ron Johnson is absolutely right. Obama's "apology" to Americans for the loss of their health care plans was hollow.

From 620 WTMJ:

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson is reacting to President Obama's apology for people's health insurance being canceled. The president told NBC News he's sorry Americans are losing health insurance plans he said they could keep.

Johnson told 620 WTMJ's Charlie Sykes that President Obama stopped short in his apology of saying he was sorry for making promises about people keeping their policies in the first place.

"It certainly wasn't an apology. When I heard it, the analogy I was thinking of was, you tell somebody, 'Boy, I'm really sorry your dog died,' but you refuse to acknowledge you ran over that dog with your car," Johnson said. "Those are your tire tracks on that dog."
Here's audio of the complete interview. Johnson's dog analogy starts at 0:53.
