Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.” Barack Obama, at the Saddleback Presidential Candidates Forum, August 16, 2008.


I think I’m starting to catch on.  And I did it all without Rosetta Stone.  I finally cracked the code after Obama signed an executive order that will allow federal spending on embryonic stem cell research.  The key words above were “specificity” and “pay grade,” so, translated, it means: “I need to stay vague until I get my first pay stub.”


And then Obama stated that human cloning is “dangerous, profoundly wrong.”  Translation: “They won’t be ‘clones,’ per se. They are auxiliary taxpayers!”


Remember, Obama said he would provide a tax cut to 95% of Americans.  Translation: “I know 95% of Americans don’t pay taxes, but if you don’t count current wage earners or anybody born in the next three generations, then, yeah, I will cut that one tax.  Hey, $13 is a lot of money.”  In about six weeks, Obama will claim his research has saved lives. The translation: “No, it didn’t.”


And one more of the most obvious head-scratchers: Campaigning at Iowa’s Cornell College on Dec. 5, 2007, he asserted that the Second Amendment “is an individual right and not just a right of the militia.”  He repeated it several times on the campaign trail.  Translation: “If we are going to take the Constitution literally, then nowhere does it say guns.  It says ‘arms’ and everybody should have two, which brings me back to my executive order on stem cells.  There are rich people with two arms that aren’t paying their fair share.


The NRA rated Obama an “F” on the 2nd Amendment.  Obama thinks the “F” stands for “hope.”


Oh, and there’s so much more!  When Baby Barack was still in short pants, I wonder if his teleprompter had a bouncing ball?  Without it, he’s the one bouncing all over the place.
