What is the meaning of "It's almost enough":
It's almost enough to make a White House reporter want to take what the press secretary says at face value.
Need more examples of its usage, please.
(1) It is not enough, but it is a-l-m-o-s-t enough!!!
(2) Here are some examples: (I got these ideas from the Web)
My computer gives me so much trouble when I want to
write a letter. It [having troubles with the computer] is
almost enough to make me buy a typewriter. But it is
not enough. I will continue to use my computer. I do not
dislike my computer that much that I would ever use a typewriter.
(All my friends would laugh at me!!!)
I belong to political party X. But some party X politicians are
really saying and doing crazy things. It is almost enough to make
me want to vote for political party Z. But it is not enough. I do not
dislike party X that much that I would ever vote for party Z. (I will
dislike party Z until my dying day.)
I hate to cook. But I saw some beautiful aprons on sale. It is almost
enough to drive me to the kitchen to cook so that I can have an
opportunity to wear one of those "cool" aprons. But it is not enough.
I am still too lazy to cook. Those aprons are very "cool," but they are
not that "cool." (I do not care how "cool" those aprons are. I will never
stand in a hot kitchen cooking food.)
