i’m noticing a lot of news articles are using the term “Obama” in place of the much more appropriate term, “the United States.”
try this for an exercise, every time you see “Obama” in a headline, see if it makes more sense saying “the United States mobilizes against Ebola.” or “the United States has a plan for Iraq.”
the President is not alone on his decisions, so if not willing to use the term “United States” ….. at least declare “Eileen and Obama levy sanctions against Russia.” because i, for one, support him.
if we want to look at the obvious objective of using the term “Obama” instead of “United States” …. ‘Obama’ is used to inspire dissent, while the few times ‘United States’ is used then is the psychological equivalent of using “we” in rhetorical criticism.
like, we are big, fat, stupid manipulators, aren’t we?
