Obama

I have avoided posting here because it has become so partisan. Usually if I do post here it is to comment on a non-partisan issue like gerrymandering, the filibuster, the electoral college etc. I will break that rule now.

Many of you know from when I was posting more often here that I am a Democrat. It is with great difficulty that I call for President Obama to resign. The government has simply gotten out of control. He has lost his ability to govern. Nothing will or can be done while Obama is President except perhaps in the area of foreign policy. Good or bad he has become a lighting rod. There is an impossible standard of having to overcome a 60% limit to pass anything in the Senate. There is also the standard in the House of needing to have a majority of Republicans behind a measure before it will come to a vote. One could argue that past Speakers, including Democrats, have set the same standard. They all allowed exceptions, Boehner does not.

A hyperbole is a figure of speech or a rhetorical device that is usually an exaggerated statement. It is used to evoke strong emotional response or create an effect to what is communicated. A hyperbole is a literary device which is used in poetry, casual talk and one can even find examples of it in the bible as well. Hyperboles are common in love poems, where exaggeration of the beauty and other traits of the lover take place. It is also used to describe the heroic deeds of kings and knights. If hyperboles fail to create the dramatic sense of the poetic piece, exaggeration may seem really comical.

Hyperboles augment reality and carry the listener or the reader beyond the boundaries of cogent thoughts. People often confuse it with a simile or a metaphor, because a hyperbole is also used to compare two objects.
You read that in Farmer's Almanac?

No. My wife is an English Major.

No, he's right. That wasn't hyperbole. That was either cliché or pablum.

No, I think you explained it pretty well in your first statement. I'm an English major too.

You're kidding, right? I'd suggest that you do some reading about the debt deal with Boehner.
