Graham talked with Morning Joe’s Willie Geist, MSNBC contributor and Morning Joe regular Mike Barnicle, New York Magazine’s John Heilemann and MSNBC’s Alex Wagner about the faiths of the 2012 GOP candidates as well as President Obama’s faith.

Here is some of Graham’s apology.

“I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama,” he said in a statement.

“I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election — for his faith has nothing to do with my consideration of him as a candidate.”

  • Well, now we know he can make fake apologies and lie all at the same time. A disappointing  son for his father, I am confident.

    “I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election — for his faith has nothing to do with my consideration of him as a candidate.” In other words he wished he had not had so much attention drawn to the way he really feels and believes. He is just going through the motions here. He sent out his message to his constituents.
