Often we hear politicians or otherwise-prominent figures making selfless or self-promoting statements when they really mean something else. The goal of this game is to find a quote, and to translate it. (Provide link if you can) I'll begin:

What was said: Goldman Sachs's CFO claimed that running the company without government money “would be an easier thing to do.”
What was really meant: I want my bonuses, dammit!

My Math prof: "I'm gonna be nice and let you guys out early today."
Translation: "I drank too much and my bladder is stretching"

or is it politicians only?

obama, quoting kennedy: "The world is changing. The old ways will not do."
translation: "they don't like my views. find someting else, quick!"

I think that with that quote, he wasn't saying what you said he was saying, but more like, "The way things used to run around here were f*cking stupid, and if you don't like that oppinion, shove it"
