Collecting Apologies and Obfuscation for 2014
(You can use these when you have a problem)

Apologies
If I offended anyone on Earth, I sincerely apologize.
We are trying to get it right

We "unintentionally overlooked" US wage law, dismissing it as an "administrative error."
Silicon Valley Masters of the Universe

“I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those
comments".
Jonathan Gruber on his Affordable Care Act comments

"The content of my emails to Scott were insensitive and inappropriate but are not an accurate reflection of who I am," Pascal wrote. "Although this was a private communication that was stolen, I accept full responsibility for what I wrote and apologize to everyone who was offended."
Amy Pascal Sony Entertainment co-chair

"Private emails between friends and colleagues written in haste and without much thought or sensitivity, even when the content of them is meant to be in jest, can result in offense where none was intended," he said. "I made a series of remarks that were meant only to be funny, but in the cold light of day, they are in fact thoughtless and insensitive — and not funny at all. To anybody I've offended, I'm profoundly and deeply sorry, and I regret and apologize for any injury they might have caused."
Scott Rudin - Hollywood Producer

 

 Obfuscation
*  "My comments were never meant to be factual" - US Senator John Cornyn of Texas 

*  “We had another very strong quarter financially. I’m happy with the strategies and the quality of    the work we’re doing but given our significant aspirations and the breadth of the opportunity in front of us, it’s more critical than ever that we increase our overall pace of execution.”
Chief Executive Dick Costolo during an earnings call with analysts
