What's It All About?

I've come to the conclusion that when a Democrat says "It's not about X. It's about Y", you can bet your bottom dollar that it's about X. You can also be pretty sure that a meaningful definition of Y is going to be pretty elusive.

"It's not about unions. It's about how America is going to rebuild the middle class"
- Andrew Stern, president of the Service Employees International Union (on "card check")

"It's not about bigger government or smaller government, it's about smarter government."
- Barack Obama

"It's not about helping banks, it's about helping people."
- Barack Obama

I'm sure you can find more.
