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?

Obama Not Understood Because He Spoke In "Shorthand"

Henceforth, we shall call this spoken shorthand "Obonics."

So it is written. So it shall be.

I wonder if his textbook included this essay:

By W.E.B. DuBois

Joseph Stalin was a great man; few other men of the 20th century approach his stature. He was simple, calm and courageous. He seldom lost his poise; pondered his problems slowly, made his decisions clearly and firmly; never yielded to ostentation nor coyly refrained from holding his rightful place with dignity. He was the son of a serf but stood calmly before the great without hesitation or nerves. But also - and this was the highest proof of his greatness - he knew the common man, felt his problems, followed his fate...

“Clown King”...I like it. nobama is the Clown King and is similar to another famous clown...John Gacy. The parallel continues in that nobama, the current Clown King is killing Free America...or at least wants to do so.

Funny, I sat through Law Professor lectures for three years and none of them spoke in shorthand. (Of course those were actual professors and not politically appointed “temporary lecturers” which Obama was.

“...never received tenure.” He wasn’t a professor and was not even at the level where he would ever receive tenure. He was a lecturer...I believe he was paid the salary of a lecturer but did very little lecturing. Wouldn’t someone in some manner state they were “taught” by this pretender buffoon...the Clow King. This affirmative action oaf has no background history. That’s a bit odd and telling.

Carney: Obama Not Understood Because He Spoke In "Shorthand" Since He Is A Law Professor

Huh? Carney says 0dumb0sh_t spoke in shorthand? I think the very next question to Carney should have been...."How does overturning this law would be "unprecedented" end up as some form of shorthand"? Tell me Carney, exactly what were the the shorthand words that we should have grased immediately from 0dumb0sh_t's words?

Carney’s statement is funnier than anything Bill Maher has said in years. Granted, I could be wrong that Maher is trying to be funny, and Carney was trying to be serious, but I stand by it.

Let’s run this one through the political BS translator.

Carney: “The problem here is that the president is so intellectually gifted that his thought is incomprehensible to most mortals. Because you are not as intelligent as Barack, you don’t understand what he meant. Your trying to understand him is as laughable as it is disrespectful.

The president tries to deactivate 90% of his brain to speak to you little people but sometimes is unable to dumb down his speech for the uneducated masses when his brain is running in fifth gear, so he speaks in shorthand because you would simply not be able to cognate at that level of brilliance—your mind would overload. So the shorthand is actually for you own protection, morons.

If you want to be able to understand the president, you need to double your IQs and spend at least another decade in college. Until then, you need to be glad that you are permitted to be in the same room as him. If you continue to question the pure, undiluted brilliance of this man, further favor will be denied you and you will spend the rest of your career doing VOSOTS on press releases promoting sparsely attended events that no one cares about from fringe organization lie the society of pro-acrylic kniters and the brotherhood of blind, left-handed dentists without tonsils.

Now get back on the f***king wagon and fall into step or else.

this is at least the third time the MSM has tried this loopdyloop.

Obama says something idiotic.
People suspect he is dumb.
The MSM says regular folk are too dumb to understand someone who is so smart.

Got it. Shorthand that means the opposite of the way it actually reads. Brilliant. Very convenient, too, if anyone ever calls you on something you said.
