Bill Clinton wasn’t sure what the meaning of the word “is” was.
That seems to be something the Obama administration has in common with the Clinton administration. Maybe it’s a Democrat thing, not knowing the meanings of words.
Of course, the Obama camp has taken it beyond the meaning of a little word. It’s now up to proper nouns.
Look at what Eric Holder told Congress this week. He said that an email that used the phrase “Fast and Furious” didn’t refer to Fast and Furious, the operation that intentionally let guns into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. Read it here.
So, what did it mean? Well, his defense was it was another scheme to let guns into the hands of Mexican drug dealers.
That’s really not a good defense of actions. It’s like, “Oh, I’m not guilty of killing Joe. The email where I said I killed Joe? I was talking about having killed Kevin. So, everything’s cool, right?”
Anyway, I’m wondering what words mean when Democrats say them. I think I’ve figured some of it out, but I might need your help with the rest.
When a Democrat says, “Hope and Change,” he means “We can really screw things up and smile the whole time.”
When a Democrat says “Your taxes will go down,” he means “Bend over, this might hurt a lot.”
When a Democrat says “Look at all the jobs we created,” he means “Pay no attention to the larger number of jobs lost. And be sure to get to McDonald’s in time to go on shift at 4:00.”
When a Democrat says “We’re going to restore American,” he means “To its status as a colony of Europe.”
When a Democrat says “Everyone is equal,” he means “Unless you’re a woman being paid by Democrats.”
When a Democrat says “We’re the party that supported slavery and created the Ku Klux Klan,” he means … well, he won’t say that, because you really can’t change what that means.
Can you offer some other suggestions on what Democrats really mean when they say the things they say?
