Please tell me that I am dreaming? Is this The secular Messiah already proclaiming his victory and the rest is in the details?
No, it is an unfortunately cutsie way for Sen. Messiah Barack, I suppose, to add a little gravitas to his campaign.
Why, he even has discovered a little Latin, for panache I suppose.
Oh come on, we should all know the Latin that we learned in school. Oh, I'm sorry, we do not learn Latin in government schools.
Anyway, vero possumus is, are you ready? YES WE CAN!
As an aside, the last time I heard such a trite campaign slogan was not in a campaign, but in sports.
In 1979, it was the then California Angels rallying cry on their way to their first division title. I remember it like yesterday.
YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN! YES WE CAN!
At least as a sports rally cry, it makes sense.
But, as a political slogan it is moronic. Every candidate can use that and, like so much Sen. Messiah Barack says, it means not one thing.
Can what? Can wake up in the morning? Can use a restroom? Can drink a cup of coffee? Can drive our SUVs? Keep our air conditioners at 72 degrees? Can eat what we want?
Well, when it comes to the last three items, according to Sen. Messiah Barack, it is NO WE CAN'T!
Really, the seal is too much. But it is so typical of a campaign that is all symbolism and no substance. Whenever the substance gets out, like Sen. Messiah Barack lecturing us on SUV usage, how we adjust our temperatures and if we can eat what we want, people scratch their collective heads and mumble, "Huh?!" "What the hell does he mean?!"
So, it means he has to stay away from any real positions. They, and his professional relationships are what keeps getting our secular Messiah in trouble in the first place.
I think that Sen. Messiah Barack needs to have the asterisk around vero possumus*-except when it comes to SUVs, personal climate control and how we eat.
Since I went to government schools, please give me the Latin for "NO WE CAN'T".
