Obama-ese Translated

The major makes it easier for those of us who speak, blunt, direct, English.

Well done, Major Miller. An excellent "fisking", sir.

I am not sure Obama said even that much.

I remember watching one of the debates, and I paused it at several points and asked my wife to tell me exactly what Obama (or McCain) said. She never could. They talked for three minutes, and said absolutely nothing of any substance.

Pretty much the same with the radio address the Major reviews. What did he really say?
The economy sucks.
We need people to work.
IF by some accident or coincidence, the unemployment rate drops significantly, I want to take full credit.

I read a great quote yesterday in the San Francisco Chronicle. It said something to the effect of:

The president does not have a lever long enough to move the economy.

In the Economic Winter, politicians shovel snow and then take credit for the Spring.
