Whiner in Chief

Obama, speaking to a sympathetic crowd at a Barbara Boxer fundraiser:

"'Let's face it this has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s,' he said."

Read it again and then sit back and think.

This last year and a half. Worse than any 18 months of WWII? Of the Vietnam War? Korea? Worse than the eighteen months following 9/11?

Honestly, sometimes he opens his mouth, things come out, and I find myself nauseated.

More later...

  1. I pretty much find myself nauseated every time he opens his mouth. Today, I was hoping for the teleprompter...it was painful to watch that presser.

  2. Well, to be honest I kind of exaggerated. I don't think I've heard him say more than about a hundred words since he was inaugurated. :p

  3. Does that even make grammatical sense?

    Regardless: *palmface*

  4. Yeah, but it's awkward. It helps to remember that he said it (sometimes the things that we say sound better than they look if they're written down). Not that I'm defending him (well, I guess I am). I'm defending (sort of) the style, NOT the content, which I still find pathetic. :)
