Understatements

Understatements

Understatement (via John Sexton):

Many critics view The Times as constitutionally unable to address the election in an unbiased fashion. Like a lot of America, it basked a bit in the warm glow of Mr. Obama’s election in 2008….

Understatement (via Tom Maguire):

It is hard to imagine, though, how Mr. Obama can truly distance himself from Mr. Wright.

Understatement:

In person, Senator Dick Lugar (R., Ind.) is a model of probity …  In a primary, however, he’s no-holds-barred — even juvenile.

Understatement:

Criticizing a tiny state surrounded by enemies hell-bent on its long-term destruction might not play in Peoria, but it plays very well in the salons of the Upper East Side. It is a false bravado, one where the people pushing their agendas know quite well that they have a large support group from the most influential ivory tower newspaper in the United States.

Understatement:

Michelle Obama is about to set the record for the most television appearances by a First Lady

Understatement:

“I just want you to remember that in the end, this all could come down to those last few thousand people that we register to vote. It could all come down to those few thousand folks we need to help to get to the polls in November”

We interrupt these understatements to give you an overstatement:

The state will argue that it is only helping the federal government do the job it is supposed to do and not interfering.  I don’t think that’s is [sic] right for the reasons stated.  Arizona may have some success in the lower courts, but I don’t believe that the Supreme Court Justices, whether conservative or liberal, will be at all sympathetic with the notion the federal control over immigration ought to delegated to 50 different states.

My personal favorite understatement: “Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected”

“I don’t believe that the Supreme Court Justices, whether conservative or liberal, will be at all sympathetic with the notion the federal control over immigration ought to delegated to 50 different states.”

Why the hell NOT…when the Feds abdicate and do so VERY publicly…???

SOMEBODY needs to do it…

Yo, Dellinger, let’s get our facts straight!

“delegated to 50 57 different states”

You progressives can’t get a damn thing right, Geesh!

When the NY Times finally goes down I’m going to dance on its grave. What a vicious, truthless institution.

Ever notice how both Obamas love to talk about “folks” as if they had ever used the word before politics? They are privileged elitist snobs.

I laugh every time I see Obama with his shirt sleeves rolled up. What the heck do the rubes in the audience think he’s been doing? Out changing a tire in the parking lot before the speech? The punk’s never done a bit of actual physical work in his life that anyone credible has witnessed.

    Right you are. He hasn’t done manual labor. Back when 0 was beating the “car-in-the-ditch” story, I made that point. Especially since he was talking about being in the dusty mud. Mud is wet, dust is dry, aren’t usually found together. I figured he was speaking from his long experience at manual labor.
