My wife and I have been saying this new word a lot in the last few days, and having fun with it. "Obamanomics". It's easy to pronounce, in case you're having trouble with the visually intimidating series of characters. Just say the name "Obama", then add "nomics". It flows quite nicely, and is fun to repeat.

We've also sung this new word, to the tune of the song Mah Nà Mah Nà, which I used to always enjoy on The Muppet Show. Instead of saying "Mah Nà Mah Nà", you say "Obamanomics". It's a bit of a tight fit and has an extra syllable, but you can do it. Give it a try.

You can also try repeating the word as sort of a silly school fight-song cheer, with variations on the pattern:


It's zany fun for the whole family!

(What? Did you think I was going to discuss politics?)


  1. Thankfully I think we are ALL tired of talking politics! ;)

  2. Tully - Right you are. And really, that's how it seems like it should be. During the season for election decisions, everyone gets all worked up over political stuff. Once it's over, everyone goes back to business as usual.
