Too often, Obama uses the word “too”


As in an editorial he wrote about the upcoming Summit of the Americas.

“Too often, the United States has not pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors.” So how often should the US not pursue and sustain engagement with our neighbors?

“We have been too easily distracted by other priorities”. So how distracted is just distracted enough?

“The U.S.-Cuba relationship is one example of a debate in the Americas that is too often dragged back to the 20th century.” So how often should the debate be dragged back to the 20th century?

“Too many in our hemisphere are forced to live in fear.” So how many in our hemisphere should be forced to live in fear? In round numbers?
