What Point Is This You Are Attempting To Make?

Yes...
I said what I said and I meant it.
Just as it sounded as if intended.

'Even though you offended,
With an insensitivity? '

What are you seeking?
An apology that excuses my comments.
To then deny,
I was not conscious?

Yes...
I said what I said and I meant it.
Just as it sounded as if intended.

'But, you are running for public office.
To represent 'all' of the people.'

And what point is this you are attempting to make?
That I should hide my biased opinions to get votes?

'Well...
Kind of.
Or at least pretend.'

That would be like cheating on a spouse.
Or playing cat and mouse.
I think those people who were offended,
Need to get over themselves.
And awaken to have reality revealed.
I said what I said and that's how I feel.
