I wouldn't be able to say it any better, so I'm simply directing you to a video on MSNBC where, in a eulogy, Keith Olberman paid tribute to "Stay The Course" after President Bush decided to stop using the phrase.
"Listen, we've never been stay the course..." OMG, Mr. President. Give me a break!!
"The way he's dealing with it is to try to fudge and fuzz up the issues," said Richard Kohn, a visiting history professor at the U.S. Army War College and Dickinson College, both in Carlisle, Pa. "On the eve of a crucial election, there's so much dissatisfaction with his leadership and the war itself that he has to give the impression that he's rethinking his strategy."
I think from now on, we need to "adjust" the meaning of everything we say, no matter how many times we say it. The word that's been understood here is "stay" which is obviously the fault of our school system for teaching students using the dictionary. Obviously the President did take a course that is now popular in the schools where I live. It's called "English as a second language."
