Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Tomorrow night’s debate will pit the magniloquent, gaffe-prone Joe Biden, against the intelligent, fact-laden Paul Ryan.

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

Your link goes to a bunch of hose manure and not Steve Wynn. Not that horse manure is inappropriate for the magniloquent One.

Steve Wynn is legally blind, but he can still see right through Obama.

Obama’s speeches to his die-hard followers about his grandiose ObamaCare plan is a magniloquent malignancy on the public at best.

Wow--37 minutes after my ping, you were still able to pick up a bronze medal! Too bad Obama can't let the Teleprompter debate Mitt.

Wasn’t Magniloquent the name of that big, boastful dragon in one of the early Disney movies?

The magniloquent mystery monkey shakes his tree demanding to be fed. He has become a malignant nuisance when he attacked an elderly woman recently. Despite his fans and his facebook page, they are actively hunting him to relocate him. Tampa Bay's Menace.

Be wary of those with whom you cannot reason. Like big-ass monkeys. And liberals.

Did you hear that some OWS Types were whining about the fact that TOTUS was not allowed to debate Romney?

The answer to this one is too easy. Obama tries to speak with magniloquence and just comes off as a big phoney. And a repetitive big phoney,to boot.

you can’t take responsibility for the students at your public universities! i know of two Maryland Lib families who had kids graduate from u of WI in the past few years, so you have the libs from all over going to school there!

Not only did he not win, but he lost so bad no one on his side even said he won. I am still enjoying that. The looks on BHO and MO's faces on that stage were priceless. BHO was thinking what's wrong with MO, and she was thinking you loser.

Apparently, most voters recognize the Ryan-Biden debate will be a trouncing of the magniloquent dopey joe by the magnificent young Congressman Ryan.

Joe the Plagiarizer, magniloquent
Walter, the prop of a ventriloquist;
like two peas in a pod
with brains made of wood
What a joke the VP will have been.

Gloomy, 72 and a chance of rain-I love fall...

Obama’s magniloquent speeches
Have gone right to his head-
All that verbiage is pointless
When nothing is actually said

Much like Michelle’s outfits-
Very flashy, but lacking class
They suffocate us with flowers
And the media gives them a pass

He’s an ill-tempered Chihuahua
That snaps to prove it is tough
Then runs into a corner, yapping-
Aren’t we all tired of that stuff?
