Wee-Weed Up? President Obama Talks Nonsense

Is this any way for a commander in chief to speak?

Another indication of not being ready for prime time, or in this case, the White House. President Obama said publicly something about people in Washington being wee-weed up:

Spokesman Robert Gibbs was asked what the heck the president meant yesterday when he laughingly told some of his supporters that "there's something about August going into September where everybody in Washington gets all wee-weed up."

Gibbs' explanation: "Wee-weed up is when people just get all nervous for no particular reason."

Perhaps another definition of getting wee-weed up is landing a job you're not ready to handle.
