Capuano apologizes, but can’t retract his words: Words are like bullets; if they escape, you can’t catch them again

Politics in America is a circus. The Republican party suffers a lot because of liberal media biased views. “Republican” is synonym for rich and fighters for the rich; meanwhile the Democrats portray themselves as “protectors” of the poor. The Democrats often get away easily with scandals.

Rep. Michael Capuano, a Democrat from Massachusetts, is under a lot of criticism.He has chosen opportunist language and incitation to violence by asking union members to challenge the proposed budget cut in Wisconsin and urging people to “get a little bloody.” What happened to all the condemnations of the Tea Party language after the shooting in Tucson, Arizona? Imagine if this type of language was used by a GOP member or Sarah Palin–that would make the news of the week. 

Only a fool believes what politicians say. They are all the same. Like we say in French, “blanc bonnet , bonnet blanc.” Mr. Capuano has apologized. Unfortunately, he cannot retract his words. As the Wolof of Senegal say, “Words are like bullets; if they escape, you can’t catch them again.”
