Yingluck's sins of omission

Yingluck Shinawatra's litany of unwise decisions continues to mount, with the emergency decree being the latest blunder.

Her pro-active mistakes are quite clear. What bothers me, however, are her sins of omission. For example, why can't she ever admit that it is her brother in charge and not herself? Why doesn't she ever condemn those who attack protesters? Why does she keep silent about the death penalty she has imposed on the protest leaders? Why doesn't she admit that the police work for her, not the nation? Why does she pretend the election on February 2 will solve anything? Why can't she find the humility to apologise for having made matters worse by okaying her brother's ill-conceived policies?
