Dead Wrong (A Tolerance for Ambiguity)

    I do not have tolerance for ambiguity when a specific statement is made, and the attempt to back it up is ambiguous.

    I also do not have a tolerance when a specific request is made, and the response is ambiguous.

    It doesn't have to be yes or no kind of answer, but an answer with honest reasons/explanations or back up for either way.

    President Bill Clinton:
    Contending that his statement that "there's nothing going on between us" had been truthful because he had no ongoing relationship with Lewinsky at the time he was questioned, Clinton said, "It depends upon what the meaning of the word 'is' is. ... If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement"
    Parsing, deflecting, obfuscating: an insidious rhetorical art form in the mouths of politicians :)

    Bill Clinton meant that '... "at this very moment," (currently) Monica is not sucking my penis.'

    While that's true, it is just as bad as (but not any worse than) telling everyone that their definition or understanding of "illegal immigration" is wrong and yours is correct. Or that we must agree that the glass is defined as half full or half empty according to your rules.

    Have you ever run for office? Like Trump, you are a very stable genius (in your own mind).
