“Make no mistake,” much like “let me be clear” is a complete Obamaism.
Arjun Basu

Actually, Obama stole “Make no mistake” from President George W in the 9/11 era. It was not popular in politics until Bush said it. And it’s quite ironic that Obama adopted a phrase from Bush, when Good Ol’ W. was considered ineloquent by the left.

To prove my observation, here’s the extremely-liberal Slate complaining about Bush using this phrase too much back in 2004:


So, yeah, Obama stole it. Bush using it made him sound stupid, but Obama using it made him sound Presidential, right? SMH. Typical political hypocrisy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
