      One involves histrionics and therefore provides a more verbose description of the same?

        Yeah...and it is also pretty gosh-darn repetitive!

      I dunno who says absolutely clear.
      But I do wish Obama would stop saying "let me be clear" while he muddies the whole thing!

      Maybe "absolutely clear" means crystal clear and is much different from "opaque"?  Or is crystal clear even really clear?

      Clear means what is about to be said wont make any sense... absolutely clear means the following is campaign BS that is so beyond reality that it makes clear seem absolute! Lol

    I don't think they want to sound vainglorious. Who does? It's prob just a speech pattern they use without much thinking about it.
