Remember whenever Bush would 'misspeak' and the media would beat the dead horse making fun of him?

Well, far from just mispronouncing words, Obama goes off teleprompter and starts spewing gibberish:

Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.
Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

Seriously, WTF is he talking about? Does he just say words without knowing their meaning?

Can you figure it out? Maybe he has some esoteric meaning that is beyond me?

Remember Obama's campaign promise:

"I can make a firm pledge," Obama said in 2008. "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax. Not your payroll tax. Not your capital gains taxes. Not any of your taxes."

Forget about it. There's some change you can believe in.

I swear, he may as well look the American people in the eye and say, "Read my lips..."

It has been suggested by a smarter man than I am (Chuck) there is a simple explanation for this, whether taxes, jobs, or arrogant Americans: Ă˜bama is a damn liar.

BTW Brooke, your visual made me laugh out loud. You are so funny.

I'm surprised that his sycophantic followers haven't all started using the word whenever possible. That seems to be the general game plan, you know. One of the elite say something odd, and then all the others jump on board so they can "be like the cool kids".

W/V: returdi... Missed it by THAT much :)

Aw shucks Mustang.

At the risk of being accused of a racist, does anyone remember the character from the show In Living Color that was a prisoner being interviewed and he constantly used big words inappropriately thinking he sounded educated? He came to mind when reading Brooke's blog.

Well, you know. He is "f---ing retarded."

Easy, Roger Rahmjet! Obama's qualifications for editor of the Harvard Law Review are NOT in dispute here. ;-)

Paladin:Yes, I'm surprised, too.

Angel: You too!

Chuck: I remember that! LOL!

SB: Yep!

FJ: It must not take much these days.

BHO is "agnostic" about tax increases on us, the middle class.

That means that he'll sign a bill increasing taxes, even if he doesn't actively seek the bill, IMO.
