The whole presidential speech at the podium feels like it's out of a Stanley Kubrick movie

Obama walks down a long luxurious hallway to a podium. He speaks clearly into the camera w/ a very effective speaking tone and doesn't flub a single sentence. Then he signs off w/ "and god bless America" before turning around, walking away down the middle of that hallway and then exiting out the door.

Thanks for all the analysis, guys

"Shupport."

Clearly a freudian slip.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Have you got an interpretation for that?

I thought for it to be a slip, you had to have an accidentally-revealed truer word choice than what might have been spoken otherwise, eh?

Perhaps its a new, New-Speak word, combining "shun" with "support"; to describe how he disfavors whoever he wises, while pretending to aid them, I'm guessing.

Perhaps

a mix of "ships" and "port" - shipport? Just thinking...

He's hard to parse, even when you understand his words

If only this were entertaining; but many innocent Syria lives are in eminent danger, because mad men here want to throw, "surgical", missiles at those they loosely, but frequently, accuse of having used chemical weapons on innocent Syrians!
