Obama and "Shenanigans"

In honor of St. Patrick's Day...

"The notion that we would want to brush that aside and engage in the usual political shenanigans and smear tactics that have come to characterize too many political campaigns is not what the American people are looking for." - October 6, 2008 (criticizing John McCain)

"What we will not cut back, however, are those investments that are directly linked to our long-term prosperity. As I said last week, we can't go back to a bubble economy, an economy based on reckless speculation and spending beyond our means, on bad credit and inflated home prices, and some of the shenanigans that have been taking place on Wall Street." - March 17, 2009 (wearing a green tie)

This word has been going around lately -- how appropriate Obama used it today.
