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

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?

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.

That is an excellent point. Perhaps that is why he uses the teleprompter. He is just about incoherent when he speaks without one.

An adjunct teacher. Someone who is familiar with the basis of the course enough that he can’t screw up the entire context. Unless he tries.

If this were a scene in a comedy I'd laugh my ass off! It's worse than the meaning of "is."

A Reporter needs to ask Carney if he knows of any other instances where the "Law Professor" has spoken in shorthand as President?

You can't fix STUPID!

Everyone really needs to stop referring to Obama as a former Constitutional Law prof. Con Law (ok, maybe he taught “ConLaw” in a different sense) is a brutally difficult first year class in most law schools.

Obama taught three upper-class electives: Voting Rights, Equal Protection/Due Process, and Race and the Law.

Which have NOTHING in common with the real thing, or the intellectual firepower of professors who actually teach the real thing.

Obama isn’t a lawyer any more either. And, neither is his wife. No reasons given for them not renewing their lawyer licenses either. Another Obamaism that stinks.

I have a brother-in-law who graduated from Harvard, cum laude. He laughs whenever he hears people say Obama was a Magna cum laude. He told me 90% of Harvard graduates graduate with some kind of academic degree honors on their diploma’s.

I have several old folks in my family (in-laws) that went to Harvard (they earned it the old fashioned way...they worked hard). They are dead now, but they would laugh.

Obama is a slacker, but someone bought a legacy for him...so he skated through.

Nowadays, everything is for sale.

Carney just made one of the worst excuses possible. I have been an Ivy League professor for 35 years and learned early-on that clarity of speech is just a tad important in this business.

Obama better thank his lucky stars that Professor Rating sites were not around when he honing his “shorthand”.

Obama’s shorthand is called “Doublespeak” in George Orwell’s “1984”. We, the average people, call it “ignorance, threats, and lying” by the Comrade-in-Chief.

There, Jay. Take that and shove it up your smarmy ass.

Whether this explanation is true or not Obama would still be wrong either way.

With Comanches approaching from the West, Arapahos from the East, Sioux from the West, and Apaches from the South, Lone Ranger turns to Tonto and states...

“Looks like we are in for a rough time Tonto”
Tonto “WTF do you mean WE, White Man’?

The only shorthand here is ‘they’ are once again just telling us we are too stupid to breath the same air as that Assinine Dolt.

If OB is all that intelligent, why does he get his knickers in a bind when someone uses the (perfectly good) word ‘niggardly’?.
