Words DO Matter...

"I don't see a difference between denouncing and rejecting" - Barack Obama

Barack Obama was being totally honest. He doesn't...

Here's the difference. Courtesy of Merriam.

Denounce - to pronounce especially publicly to be blameworthy or evil

Reject - to refuse to accept, consider, submit to, take for some purpose, or use

If you were President, it could be the difference between just condemning the actions of a nation or moving aggressively and cutting off trade or diplomatic ties with that nation.

And that is a considerable difference.

But it's only words... so who cares?!
