Yes We Can, But

But is a verbal bummer.

There is no reason to use the word But. (However, Nevertheless, etc)

It is such a downer.

President Obama said on The Daily Show this week:

“Yes we Can…. BUT.. it isn’t going to happen overnight.”

Although grammatically correct it sounds negative.

“Yes We Can, and it isn’t going to happen overnight”

Better.
