Obama Bullshit Bingo

Before Barrack Obama's next televised speech, prepare your "Obama Bullshit Bingo" card by drawing a square. I find that 5" x 5" is a good size -- and dividing it into columns –five across and five down. That will give you 25 1-inch blocks.

 
Write one of the following words/phrases in each block:
  • Restored our reputation
  • Strategic fit
  • Let me be clear
  • Make no mistake
  • Back from the brink
  • Signs of recovery
  • Out of the loop
  • Benchmark
  • Job creation
  • Fiscal restraint
  • Win-win
  • Affordable health care
  • Previous Administration
  • Greed on Wall Street
  • At the end of the day
  • Empower (or empowerment)
  • Touch base
  • Mindset
  • Corporate greed
  • Ballpark
  • Game plan
  • Leverage
  • Inherited as in "I inherited this mess"
  • Relief for working families
  • ...Or add your own favorites
Check off the appropriate block when you hear one of those words/phrases.

 
When you get five blocks horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, stand up and shout

 
"BULLSHIT!"

OUR READERS WRITE:

In Obama's defense, you could probably play a similar game with every elected official in the country, past and present. To be a political figure is to spout bullshit.

Won't argue with you there, but Obama has certainly taken it to a new level.
