The Cliche President

During his weekly address this morning, Obama displayed unusual prowess in the use of cliches.

get America’s fiscal house in order
...
get our economy on a stronger footing
...
let’s be honest – neither party in this town is blameless
...
Both have talked this problem to death
...
That’s what drives people nuts about Washington.
...
it’s a place more concerned with playing politics and serving special interests
...
we have a responsibility – and an opportunity
...
it will take a balanced approach, shared sacrifice, and a willingness to make unpopular choices
...
The truth is, you can’t solve our deficit without cutting spending.
...
you also can’t solve it without asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share
...
or without taking on loopholes that give special interests and big corporations tax breaks
...
I don’t think oil companies should keep getting special tax breaks when they’re making tens of billions in profits.


Etc, etc, etc.

Obama just strings together a bunch of cliche ridden sound bites. Mr. Obama, remember the old "Lead, follow or get out of the way" cliche? Try getting out of the way.
