The ‘hidden meaning’ found in Obama’s words


John Merline of
has a funny, but true compilation of “code words” and phrases used by
Obama in all of his speeches on jobs:

When he says: We inherited $1
trillion in deficits and an economy headed for a second Great

What he means is: It’s all Bush’s

When he says: Thanks to my efforts,
