Our President continues to amaze with his ability to torture the English language.
In a rountable meeting on the economy yesterday he said the following:

As I said Friday, this thaw -- took a while to thaw, it's going to take a while to unthaw. But it's -- but the attitude here is a little different than it might have been a week ago.

First of all - I think he meant "freeze". Our economy is freezing up, not thawing out. Freezing is a longer process than thawing.
And of course the opposite of "thaw" is "freeze". Not "unthaw".

But who cares?
Nobody is listening to him anymore.
