One of my favorite Southern (and Texas) sayings. By just adding these small words, you can say anything about anybody and get away with it, no matter how mean or rude. Here’s how the Urban Dictionary defines “Bless His Heart”:
1. This is a term used by the people of the southern United States particularly near the Gulf of Mexico to express to someone that they are an idiot without saying such harsh words.
2. “You are an idiot but I like you and care about you so I dont want to hurt your feelings.”
Why bring this up? It appears Mitt Romney has turned Southern on us!
Romney in Iowa: “President Obama, bless his heart, has tried to substitute government for free people, and it has not worked.”
Here’s a link to a video of it.
I love it!
