“This transition to Afghan lead will continue and we will build an enduring partnership [with Afghani]stan so that it is never again a source of attacks against America.” And they battle – incongruent reversals – the battle continues

“Together [we’ve agreed to cut the deficit] by more than 2 trillion dollars, and we’ve put in place new rules to hold wall street accountable so crises like this never happen again.” Decide to fuck the deal with you – incongruent reversal – the deficit will not be cut

“Technology made businesses more efficient [but also made some jobs] obsolete.” I must damn the Sodom – Sodom: Personal metaphor – sexual improprieties

“[If election year politics keeps congress] from acting on a comprehensive plan lets at least agree to stop expelling responsible young people who want to staff our labs.” Iraq speaks. Get the law. Bring Shelabim – meaning unknown

“I proposed a new defence strategy that ensures we maintain the finest military in the world while saving nearly half a trillion dollars in our budget. To stay one step ahead of our adversaries [I’ve already sent this Congress] legislation that will that secure this country from the growing dangers of cyber threats.” Iraq’s a messy lover – sexual metaphor – there are problems with Iraqi relations

“[But I will not back down] from making sure an oil company can contain the type of oil spill we saw in the gulf two years ago.” Make a bumble, Adam – Metaphor – he will make a mistake.

“Meanwhile America is more productive. A few weeks ago, the CEO of Masterline told me that it [now] makes business sense for him to bring jobs back home.” Scam one – incongruent

“For the first time in two decades, Osama Bin laden is not a [threat to this] country.” See the stealth – a reflection of the raid

“These achievements are a testament to the courage, selflessness and teamwork of America’s armed forces. At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, [they exceed all ex]pectations.” The law, he’s scared – incongruent internal dialogue

“What’s happening in Detroit [can happen] in other industries.” The panic – incongruent reversal

“Banks have made huge bets and bonuses with other peoples money. Regulator[s have looked the] other way who did not have the authority to stop the bad behaviour.” They fooled us – congruent reversal – the banks fooled us

“It’s because they understand that when I get a tax break I don’t need and the country cant afford, it either [adds to the deficit] or somebody else has to make up the difference.” Who’s afraid of the snare – referencing the deficit

“That’s why I asked this Congress to grant me the authority to con[solidate the Federal] beaurocracy so our government is leaner and quicker and more responsive to the needs of the American people.” Will effort be the loss – incongruent reversal – he won’t succeed

“Don’t gut these investments in our budget. Don’t let [other countrie]s win the race for the future. Support the same kind of research and innovation that led to the computer chip and the internet.” You fuck it up – incongruent reversal

“We will not go back to an economy weakened by [outsourcing] bad debt and phony financial profits.” You saw slut – negative sexual metaphor
