The White House backed up the announcement of President Obama’s intention to make recess appointments of 15 nominees with a blog post by Jen Psaki, the White House’s Deputy Communications Director, “An Unprecedented Level of Obstruction.”
“An Unprecedented Level of Obstruction.” The Administration makes frequent use of that term, “unprecedented.” How frequent?
But only four times in headlines.
- March 27, 2010, “An Unprecedented Level of Obstruction“
- January 12, 2010, “A Year Taking on Unprecedented Challenges Abroad
- December 18, 2009, “A Meaningful and Unprecedented Breakthrough Here in Copenhagen”
- April 4, 2009, “Weekly Address: President Obama Hails Unprecedented G-20 Action to Address Global Economic Downturn“
This is not a shot, by the way. Every Administration has its rhetorical quirks.
