And "Let me be clear" "Let me speak clearly" "Let's be perfectly clear." It's code for "Here comes the big lie."

And "Unbelievable!" (can Hannity give an opinion without that word?)

I'm sick of the word "Fundamentally". I'm also tired of the following Barry 0blather phrases:

"Millionaires and billionaires"
"Tax cuts for the rich"
"Fairness"
"Everybody agrees" which is closely related to "most economists agree"
"Supporting corporations with tax subsudies"

Really the list is endless.... needless to say I'm not going into work on Nov 7th.
I'll either be celebrating the end of the skinny Marxist's regime OR I'll be mourning and lamenting the end of this once great country.

I’m sick of just about any buzz word. Of course, there are descriptive words and phrases that are useful often such as: Fool, idiot, stupid, liar, fake, fraud, evil, buffoon, clown. All are synonyms for obastard.

Obastard is what I am sick of. His face, his voice, his words. Every single thing about him.

I’m also sick of our lives being consumed by the political class. I’m sick of having to watch them all the time and feeling powerless to stop them from screwing with my life, my opportunities and my liberty.

Yup. . . and “notion.”

I believe "notion" is included is most all Obama speeches or responses. Another one is "let me be clear about this.." It's the only attempt at transparency the man can force himself to do.

“Let me be clear” is what my pastor always says just before a staffer (politely and with great spirituality) “gets it in the caboose.” Father says that, the whole parish winces.

“Gaffe” is the single most overused word heard in the news, but not the most annoying word. I hate all of these new, made-up words—bromance, ginormous, pwned...awful.

Fundamentally . . . yes.

And then there’s the word “notion”. Any time Obama wants to negate and pooh pooh anyone’s opinion; he says “they’ve got the NOTION blah-blah-blah that blah-blah-blah”, as if it’s just a silly “notion” that they concocted in their tiny little pea brains.

Trying to use “in sum” and “at bottom” lately - i think any of those phrases are attempts to make ourselves sound even smarter and signal the profundity of our next few words.

The only words in the field of politics, that I can stand hearing, will be:

“THE POLLS HAVE CLOSED.”

At that time, it will be to imbibe sparkling apple cider, and relax, or brew a fresh cup of coffee, and go down to the castle keep’s armory, and start the necessary preparations within.

My favorite is...

"The reality is..."

I don't give a FF what his/her reality is.
I prefer, "Experience has taught us..." followed by unambiguous examples.
