White House press secretary Jay Carney tells the press corps that President Obama's attack on the Supreme Court was misunderstood because he was speaking in "shorthand" since he is a former professor of law.

Henry: The president is a former constitutional law professor. One of his professors is Laurence Tribe. He now says, in his words, the president “obviously misspoke earlier this week”, quote “he didn’t say what he meant and having said that in order to avoid misleading anyone, he had to clarify it.” I thought yesterday you were saying repeatedly that he did not misspeak. What do you make of the president’s former law professor saying he did?

“The president is a former constitutional law professor.”

Wait, wait a damn minute. We write shorthand b/ it’s easier not to write out entire words. Why would one speak in shorthand? Because Obama’s tongue is tired? Really?

“Did anyone click over to the other video? The Press Corp is actually laughing at him trying to answer questions about this...

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/04/05/_reporter_to_carney_obama_made_a_mistake_and_you_cant_admit_it.html";

I had Fox muted this morning, looked up from my laptop and thought Fox had spliced video to produce a satire, then saw in the lower corner it said, “live.” So I saw Carney with a straight face and the press outright laughing at him. I had to scramble to find the remote to un-mute it. I think we shouldn’t be so hard on Carney though. He probably just needs a couple more pay checks to pay off his student loans.

Wasn’t he really something like an assistant lecturer and never a real Professor?

The University of Chicago has fallen far since the day Enrico Fermi achieved the first chain reaction there.

No..his official title was “senior lecturer”.

LOL!

I happen to know a dude who held that particular job title in between gigs in the dreaded private sector. His cachet was such that a large corporation paid him forty large (plus first class expenses) to fly half way 'round the planet to teach a two-day seminar in his particular academic specialty. When he got there, they gave him his choice of six outstanding examples of the local (Islamic!!) womenhood, which he, being happily married, declined, as far as we know.

Thanks,NautiNurse. I have seen the light. Obonics is the shorthand version of BarkySpeak.

Shorthand, huh?

That would explain alot.

So Obama graduated from the Harvard School of Court Reporting, did he? Shorthand, as in a language based upon phonetics rather than meaning?

It would explain his penchant for teleprompters, being able to replay text synthesized by others more intellectually sophisticated than himself, even unable to discern their intellectual capacity.

Something else occurred to me. People whose native language isn't English would have problems forming thoughts and phrases in spoken and written English. Going further: people who are literate in their own native language will, when they learn English, become more articulate in expressing those thoughts in English also. People who are not literate and articulate in their own native language will have more difficulty expressing themselves in English when they learn English.

I have a sneaking suspicion that BO's first language isn't English and that he isn't particularly literate in that language, either.
