President ‘I and me’ always ‘whips out the we’ for problems

http://twitter.com/#!/2old2white2male/status/516327063456722944 The old saying is “success has many fathers but failure is an orphan.” President Obama has a different version though. For him, success has one father (him) but failure is always distributed. People are starting to spot a pattern in his use of pronouns. Credit tends to be singular but blame is always plural.

http://twitter.com/#!/djsmuzz/status/495361364681326592 President Obama made no bones about it at a Friday afternoon presser — “we tortured some folks,” he admitted. Plenty argue that the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques performed on those “folks” constituted anything but torture, but when it comes to the president unburdening his soul to the public, here’s an extensive list of #ThingsObamaHasTortured.
