    should not have said "I don't think we can afford that" That sounds like he doesn't know whether we can afford them or not. He should have said "can't afford that right now".

    It's the policy stupid

      This is a well known habit of speech used by those who are trying to get along with people in power.  For example, women who are in professions where the majority of members are male have to learn to state their views without the preface of "I think" or "I don't think".    (voice of experience here)

      Hey Mr Obama, you are the President!  No need for weasel words.
