    It's almost enough - meaning

    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.

    Hello, Greenisgood.

    (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.)



    THANK YOU
