WHAT THEY SAID
&
WHAT THEY MEANT

We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria."
- President Barack Obama in an interview with 60 Minutes.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I underestimated what would take place in Syria without American involvement to support Syrian rebels.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"A direct result of failure to leave a residual force behind."
- Senator John McCain, on the chaos in Iraq.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The growth of Islamic State and the falling apart of Iraq is due to President Obama not leaving a residual American force behind in Iraq and not because of President Bush and the Congress had the United States military invade Iraq and topple Saddam Hussein.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We predicted what would happen if we didn’t leave residual force."
- Senator John McCain, on President Barack Obama not leaving a residual American force in Iraq.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We predicted what would happen if we didn’t leave a residual American force in Iraq, unfortunately we were not able to predict what would happen when we authorized an attack on Saddam Hussein's Iraq. We thought everyone would greet us with flowers, candy, sing com by ya and live happily ever after.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We are for sure going to be better, it's just a measure of how much."
- Edmonton Oilers General Manager Craig MacTavish, on his team.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We won't get a lottery pick but we won't make the playoffs either.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"While these are dark times ... sometimes things need to get really bad to wake people from their slumber."
- Senator Ted Cruz on world events.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Elect me president and I will prove it.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"I'm not able to lie."
- George Zimmerman, on why he will not use an alias.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I'm not able to lie (wink, wink) and people would recognize my face.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We have done nothing wrong."
- Gabrielle Union, on topless photos that she sent to husband Dwyane Wade that were hacked and went public.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We have done nothing wrong except trust a tech company to be secure.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"Correct."
- Representative Paul Ryan, to Charlie Rose on having not made a decision yet to run for president.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I am waiting to see if Mitt Romney will run.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"There are many moments when I look down at my feet and shake my head saying, I can't believe we lost. I wish we would have won because we would have done things a lot differently."
- Representative Paul Ryan, on had Mitt Romney and Ryan won the White House and how their foreign policy would be different.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
I wish we would have won because we would have had American military boots on the ground in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Gaza, Iran and there would be no Islamic State to push us around. Oh yeah baby. Bring it on!


WHAT THEY SAID,
"It makes no sense, when you see the numbers that are thrown at us, we shouldn’t even respond. That’s how bad it is. It’s embarrassing."
- John Davidson, president of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, on the contract negotiations with restricted free agent Ryan Johansen.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
So we will respond through the media and try and influence the fans so they will show compassion for management.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"If we ever caved to what he’s demanding, we’d all get fired. And I take it personal. I don’t understand it. I take it very personal. What’s he trying to do, get us fired? What’s he trying to do? I don’t understand what he’s trying to do."
- John Davidson, president of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, on the contract restricted free agent Ryan Johansen is negotiating for.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
The Columbus Blue Jackets owner is a cheapskate who would fire me if I paid him what he wants.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"We’ve got Boone Jenner who can move to the middle. We’ve got Dubinsky, who can move up a spot,"
- John Davidson, president of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets on players that could replace restricted free agent Ryan Johansen if he is not signed.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We can replace Johansen's 33 goals with Boone Jenner or Brandon Dubinsky who together have less goals than Johansen. Goodbye playoffs!


WHAT THEY SAID,
"It’s nothing against beards, it’s just how we choose to represent ourselves at the university."
- Brigham Young University spokeswoman Carri Jenkins, on the student petition to allow beards.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
We hate beards.


WHAT THEY SAID,
"ISIS is a legitimate threat — it is not just a legitimate threat in that region of the world, it is a legitimate threat in the United States."
- Texas Governor Rick Perry.
WHAT THEY MEANT,
Please somebody listen to me. I can barely get the media to notice me. I am relevant and I have important opinions even if nobody cares.


WHAT THEY SAID,
