This is what I call WASTING YOUR TIME in congress

A bill by another crazed Republican congressman being presented to FORCE President Obama to apologize to the Cambridge Police Department.

Damn, where was the bill(s) at forcing former President George W. Bush to apologize for lying to the country about the Iraq War, apologize for illegal wire tapping, apologize for letting his cronies make billions of dollars off the American taxpayer, apologize for not putting the effort and manpower into capturing Osama bin Laden, apologize for destroying our image internationally, apologize for leaving the economy disastrous, yes, and this is the short list.

Republicans, this is a WASTE OF TIME.

At a time of economic distress, two wars, and a health care reform effort stalled by political friction, Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, (R-Mich.) is set to introduce a bill calling on Barack Obama to formally apologize to the Cambridge Police.

The Michigan Republican announced on Friday that he would introduce the resolution unless Obama apologized to Cambridge Police Sgt. James Crowley for criticizing Crowley's handling of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s arrest last week.

The resolution is, as McCotter's Democratic critics note, a political ploy and a waste of congressional time. The congressman undoubtedly has a full plate of issues with which he could concern himself, including his home state's porous job market.

"Times are tough, people need jobs here at home, but instead of offering solutions, obstructionist Republicans like Congressman McCotter continue to put politics first," said Ryan Rudominer, press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
