  •  Exactly. It's a common rhetorical device, one (6+ / 0-)

    that Obama uses often, to mention people by describing them and their circumstance, in such a way that people know whom the speaker is talking about, without explicitly citing the person by name, as a way of making that person represent a much larger group of people rather than just themselves.  That the WA Post tried to read something into that shows just how idiotic they are.  That's Chuck Todd type of stuff,

    I note that Obama didn't say the word "Afghanistan"!  Let's try to divine some hidden meaning or motive for that!!  Aren't I brilliant for noticing that he didn't explicitly say "Afghanistan"?
