    Default how right he was

    Hi

    When someone says: How right he was, it means that I agree with what someone said.

    EG: He said Mike should be fired as soon as possible. How right he was.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    ...and you're expressing your agreement in an exclamative form.

    Default Re: how right he was

    Dear Guest:

    Yes. The expression also has the sense that the person saw into the future better than others around him/her:

    Everyone scoffed when he told us not to give Bernie Madoff any money to invest, but how right he was!

    Best wishes,

    Petra
