Further my post dated Oct 5, 2012 7:57 AM:

So - just what is it that Haim finds special about the words "ni" or "nee" not being mentioned in the debate (as against all the other words in the English language that were not mentioned? (Assuming, of course, that this is indeed a word in the English language).

So: just what is it that Haim finds special about the words "ni" or "nee" not being mentioned in the debate (as against all the other words in the English language that were not mentioned?

I'll tell you what I find significant in the word "poverty" not being mentioned by either Mr Obama or Mr Romney:

Mr Romney is not likely to mention the word "poverty" in any of his exegeses, because he has no idea that it is a problem that the US has to deal with, and very fast, if it is to maintain any kind of leadership position in the world. Mr Romney evidently does not believe this claim of mine, and he is not likely to think about "poverty" as a serious ongoing problem for at least 30% of US citizens.


I do find it surprising that Mr Obama did not trouble to mention it, as I had believed he did seriously feel that this is a serious ongoing problem for the USA. I understand there are some further debates to come, so matters may be rectified in due course.

I do NOT find it surprising that neither President Obama no Challenger Romney mentioned the word "ni" (or "nee") - it is simply not relevant to the debates.
