By far, Obama's worst offense to the English language is referring to people as "folk." Which I've probably already complained about on here, making me a repetitive jerk.
Ever do nothing and gain nothing from it?
Ever feel stupid and then know that you really are?
Ever think you're smart and then find out you aren't?
Ever play the fool and then find out that you're worse?

Just a coincidence?

That's an "inside baseball" term. You just don't get it.

"inside baseball"

I know the president has used it, but come on, it's a dumb term. Think of another way to say that the discussion has expanded to include minor or incidental details that would only be familiar to insiders.
It's actually "insider baseball" and originally referred literally to the Congressional Baseball game and, later, to the wheelings and dealings that went on inside the dugouts and on the basepaths of the annual contest. Rep. Ron Paul (R, Texas) famously declared an end to "insider baseball" (and the small-ball managerial style of Ted Stevens [R, Alaska]) in 1979 when he hit the game's first over-the-fence home run. I've done my research, now you do yours.

No, it makes you racist.

A repetitive racist jerk, then.
