Obama Speak

Updated on March 13, 2013

I have spent the last 6 years since my retirement soaking up every bit of political news I can so you might say I have become a political junkie. Therefore I feel I am imminently qualified to write this short piece advising all those not so politically inclined as to exactly what Obama is saying when he engages in Obama Speak. For today's lesson I have chosen 3 of the most frequently used words in his vocabulary; Compromise, Revenue and Fair Share (sorry I know that's 2 words).


First we'll begin with Compromise; what exactly does Obama mean when he uses the term Compromise. Substitute the word Capitulation for Compromise and you have it; there is no compromise in Obama. He is an ideologue and like all ideologues they don't compromise; they engage in subterfuge and obfuscation in order to coerce you into capitulation!


Next the word Revenue; what exactly is Obama saying when he says we need a balanced approach consisting of cuts and additional Revenue. Well my friends he's actually referring to increasing taxes; Taxes and Revenues are oxymoron's! Individuals or companies earn Revenue by producing some good or service for which others are willing to pay; the government steals the revenue from the producers in the form of taxes; the government produces nothing but only takes from the producers through taxation. Taxes and Revenue are not synonyms and thus cannot be used interchangeable within the same sentence. Call it what you want but a Tax by any other name is still a Tax!


Finally Obama's favorite class warfare expression is Fair Share. Remember he went on and on during the 2012 campaign; the one during which he successfully divided the country, about those fortunate Americans not paying their fair share. Those small business owners who didn't build their business or those lucky at life's lotto just weren't paying their fair share. Well what's he really saying; "in order to redistribute the income since my economic policies have been a disaster the only way to equal things out is to eradicate the middle class making everyone poor." Fair share means taking most of everything from those that have worked hard to get ahead in the name of fairness. From each according to their ability to each according to their need; sound familiar?

      You need to keep publishing a hub every time Obama introduces a new word he doesn't want us to understand. Fairly soon you will have enough to publish a dictionary. Voted us, useful, interesting and awesome. I guess you could say it is everything but funny and beautiful!
