The Unofficial Dictionary of Obama-Speak
I watch and read a lot of news. It bothers me how our President will play fast and loose with the English language to his own benefit. So I thought it would be entertaining and informative to collect a few and present them here.
Post Racial = Most Racial
Transparency = Like a brick wall
I take full responsibility = It's Bush's fault
Lead from behind = Retreat
I will not rest until… = I got a tee time in an hour
I promise the American People = Don’t bet on it
I have lowered taxes for the middle class = Hide your money
I don’t want to take your guns = Hide your guns
We need more spending = Even John Maynard Keynes would have bailed out by now
Our borders are more secure than ever = Borders? We’ve go borders?
The job market is improving = In China
Stop the transfer of illegal weapons = Unless to Mexican cartels or Muslim terrorists
Terrorist = Evangelical Christian
Overspending = no such concept
Truth = Whatever Democrats say
Lie = Everything Republicans say
Line in the sand = Line? What line? I don’t see no stinkin line.
Mexican violence = American problem
Islamic terror = American problem
Job training = Paper or plastic, Maam?
I did every thing possible about Benghazi = It's Hillary's fault
I am sure that there are many more. This is just a quick sampling. But in general a great deal of what he says means just the opposite. So watch carefully what he says and watch even more carefully what he does.
