Can you say ‘I'm sorry'?

Maybe love means never having to say you're sorry, but what about when love isn't involved? Say, when you've described the president using a derogatory slur for someone with a mental disability, as Ann Coulter did in October. Or when you're the president and you use an expletive suggesting that your opponent is a liar, as Barack Obama did during the campaign. And, if one does decide to apologize for speech or behavior, what makes an apology genuine?
