Obama's Favorite Phrase: 'Let Me Be Clear'

Obama's Favorite Phrase: 'Let Me Be Clear': "Yet in the portfolio of presidential phrases, none is more pervasive than Obama's four-word favorite: Let me be clear.
It is his emphatic windup for, well, everything.

'Let me be clear,' he said in describing his surprise at winning the Nobel Peace Prize. 'I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.'

'Let me be clear,' he said in one of his dozens of pitches for a health insurance overhaul. 'If you like your doctor or health-care provider, you can keep them.'

Presidents talk so much in public that it is not surprising to find rhetorical patterns. Although Obama is known for a flair with the written and spoken word, his hardest mission is often to make complicated matters relevant to the masses."
