Some people were surprised Friday at the informal way in which President Obama said “we tortured some folks” while discussing an upcoming report on enhanced interrogation techniques in the wake of 9/11. Obama has used the term “torture” a few time before — and the term “folks” many, many times; it’s one of his favorite colloquialisms. In fact, the president used the term “folks” 11 times during his 49-minute news conference Friday.He talked about “working folks” and “folks who have student loan debts.” He spoke of “helping folks get health care” and “legislation to strengthen our border and put more folks down there.”
