With all the double speak, and Washington rhetoric, I thought I would put my interpreting skills to use to decipher some of the latest and greatest quotes coming form our latest and greatest leader’s. Yes I am fluent in liberal, so these are extremely accurate translations:
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md:
”Economy, economy, economy”
Translation: Raising taxes on citizens and businesses, more government control/take over of private companies, re-distribution of wealth and more government programs.
Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa.
“We need a jobs bill. We need short-term, focused strategies to create jobs, real fast,” “If the dominant message isn’t about jobs and spending, we’ll be making a difficult challenge exponentially more difficult.”
Translation: We need to spend more money. We need another stimulus package, with some benefits starting a year or two after we implement the stimulus. We can use fabricated numbers again and lie about the jobs created, and change our original wording from “jobs created” to “jobs saved”. Just like we did here.
“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years,” Obama told ABC in an interview.
Translation: The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. I should also add that in addition to the anger and frustration, there were plenty of lies I told: I promised we would be a transparent administration, I would be bipartisan in my efforts, I would leave old Washington politics behind, I will be in charge of an administration that will promote unity. I must admit that my time as president brought the country even further apart. This is why I must continue to blame the Bush administration for my failures and broken promises, I am like every other politician, I can not, and will not take responsibility for my failures. No, I will abdicate it, and blame Bush. That’s what we do. Also, let’s be completely honest. If American Idol wasn’t on now, and Coakley was just a little bit more of an exciting candidate, a lot of the people watching American Idol would have come out to vote for her. They didn’t feel like they were going to be “a part of something big!” There was no need for the hippies to be involved in the Massachusetts election.
Translation: We can’t say “ObamaCare is dead, we need to present a front, even if there are plenty of Senator’s and those in the Congress that are running as far as they can from Health Care Reform now. It doesn’t matter at all that Pelosi says she doesn’t have the votes for it. Never mind that the majority of the US citizens are against the bill as well, we have never been one to listen to the people, we have an agenda to pass, and that is what is important!
In a year of hopping from crisis to crisis, he told ABC News, “we lost some of that sense of speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are and why we have to make sure those institutions are matching up with those values.”
Translation: In a year of hopping from crisis to crisis, we have talked directly to the American people, in fact we have talked to them more times on national TV than any other President, all with in my first year. I could really care less about any of the core values of Americans. Yes, I know that the majority of them dislike Democrats ideas for Health Care Reform, but like my main man AxelRod said in the paragraph above ”we have an agenda to pass.”
Translation: Since we have no chance of passing health care in a legitimate and bipartisan fashion, we will do it ”the other way”. RAM IT DOWN YOUR THROATS AMERICA. We’ve got three choices. 1) We can pass the bill quick before Brown is seated, 2) We can approve the senate version of the bill, of course the House would have to vote on this, and that is unlikely to pass, 3) reconciliation, the nuclear option, we would only need 50 votes for this option.
Sorry Al, You are just blowing smoke. Very unlikely any of those will be implimented. Try it. I hope you are prepared for the anger of the American people. Which is already burning bright, this will add more fuel for the fire.
I hope the translations have been informative and entertaining for you. Good night.
