“I’m not a crook, I’m not a commie, I am a Cristian.” If you haft to say it.. Just saying. If he needs to have someone tell “the little people” what he meant maybe there is something more to it. Like Obobo did not clearly understand when “We the people” told him NO! to his bolshevik.
It would take about the same amount of time to say it in longhand if he would just skip the “uhs” and pauses between every other word.

We are unworthy.
Since he cannot possibly have misspoke,
it is we who are at fault for not understanding.
Yes, it must be so.
Why… why didn’t we see it?
We are sooo unworthy.
Well, either that, or he’s a total jackass.

The White House Press secretary and the press room have become a stage setting for a *Cartoon Show*.
For those of us who are now at a “distinguished age”, this example will ring true:
Carney is on stage, wearing a cowboy outfit (sans: hat…). His face has been painted with freckles. He has strings attached to his head, hands and feet. Just offstage next to him is Attorney General Holder, also in a cowboy outfit (with hat…) and is referred to as “Cowboy Eric”. In front of the stage are all the reporters, in what is referred to as the “Peanut Gallery”.
Yesterday, Carney told the Peanut Gallery that OBoBo had said, “FUCK the Supreme Court!” The reporters dutifully reported it. Which set off a torrent of negative press for OBoBo!!
Soooo, on today`s cartoon show, Carney and Cowboy Eric have a conversation about it (…with Carney dancing up and down and waving his hands…) Cowboy Eric says to Howdy Carney, “Explain to the Peanut Gallery what the president meant, okay?” Carney than says that OBoBo used ****shorthand**** talk as a law professor, but what he really meant was “Follow Unconditionally Court Knowledge of the supreme court!”
The Peanut Gallery reporters all cheer, clap and happily file their reports…

He just spoke in shorthand. No WONDER everybody (including lawyers, judges, paralegals, etc) misunderstood.
