London, August 22 (ANI): U.S. President Barack Obama left the national media struggling to get the meaning of his newest catchphrase "wee weed up", which he uttered at a healthcare forum with Democratic party activists in Washington on Friday.

He spokes these words while comparing his recent negative press coverage with similarly dire predictions made during his run for President.

"There's something about August going into September where everybody in Washington gets all wee weed up. I don't know what it is. But that's what happens," Times Online quoted him as having said.

Obama's words left the press puzzled.

"I don't know what that means," wrote Mike Memoli, of the Real Clear Politics website.

"Is this some Chicago phrase I don't know about?" asked the conservative blogger Michelle Malkin.

Moments after Obama had made that remark, Time Magazine's Michael Scherer tweeted: "Obama just said 'wee wee'."

There also came an interpretation from the Weekly Standard's Mary Catherine Ham, who said: "My little brothers often wee-weed up the pool in August."

Sam Youngman, of The Hill newspaper, wondered when the conservatives questioning the validity of Obama's birth certificate would "start saying that 'wee-weed up' is an old Kenyan Muslim saying?"

The debate finally ended with the White House spokesman Robert Gibbs shedding some light on the phrase during a press briefing.

He said: "(Wee weed up is) when people just get all nervous for no particular reason".

He added: "Bed wetting would be the more consumer-friendly version." (ANI)
