Deconstructing Political Speech

What Joe Biden said about Barack Obama in his acceptance speech:

He’ll invest in the next generation of teachers.

What Joe Biden really meant; what he would have said were he honest and forthright:

He’ll force taxpayers to rain money down on the next generation of a special-interest group that is very important to our Party’s prospects of remaining in power.

Invest in the next generation of teachers = I will pay teachers a lot more money TODAY whether the market wants me to or not and will ensure my re-election support from the teachers' unions along with their generous financial support they skim off from the members. Next generation be damned.
