Vanity | self

Posted on 04/08/2012 5:00:59 PM PDT by zencycler

"Strong Majority"

"Judicial Activism"

Just wondering if anyone can add to this list?

I got your word right here: “projection”

behind door #2 is the word, “prevarication”

and finally, behind door #3 we have the word, “incompetent”.

Keep in mind one of the major characteristics of a Marxist dictatorship (or any statist dictatorship for that matter) is the corruption of the language.

It grates me when he skips over his consonants.

Example: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in orderuh-uhchieve the national security objectives we’ve set...”

That’s, “In order to achieve,” Mr. President.

It goes without saying that changing the vocabulary is an important tool of all totalitarian regimes. That's what George Orwell's "Newspeak" teaches us.

As for the Obama regime, what exactly is "affordable" about the "Affordable Care Act"?

And what did his "stimulus" stimulate?

My personal favorite (like nails on a chalkboard, favorite)
is when he uses the rhetoric trick of saying “all economists believe...” or “All Americans think...” or “Reasonable people know...” attempting to create a false impression of consensus.
This guy is a well practiced con-man.

During the retelling of the battle that took the life of the Wheaton, Illinois native, the Commander-in-Chief stated at the 5:12 mark of the video, “with the enemy just feets away.” “I had a uncle who was one of the, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps,” “As Libyans rebuild, let those efforts tap the experience of all those with the skills to contribute, including the many Africans in Libya.” Can you see Africa from Libya? If Palin had made this comment she would have been ridiculed for not knowing that Libya is in Africa.
