Statement Analysis: Barak Obama
We choose our words in less than a microsecond, and things such as articles, pronouns and verb tenses are chosen by the brain very quickly, even instinctively, because of our thought process.
In the 2nd presidential debate, President Barak Obama said,
""The way we're going to create jobs here is not just changing our tax code, but also to double our exports. And we are on pace to double our exports, one of the commitments I made when I was president. That's creating tens of thousands of jobs all across the country."
The use of the past tense verb, "was" might cause us to consider if President Obama is pessimistic about his chance for reelection.
