Q1 what does 'green eye shades' mean in sentence 'we've got battling green eyes shades. somewhere in between those numbers' which I quoted from the speech by President Bush in 2004 presidential election.

Q2 i think this sentence has double meanings-I live with Will for two months.

Q3 Is 'stop in ' used correctly in sentence'I will not stop in our effort to hunt down and kill the terrorists. '?
If it's right, what does it mean?

Q4 They are on their way to doing that. It should be on their way to do that, I think.

Many thanks in advance.

Please go back and listen to the speech again.

I can't imagine Bush using those words in a speech. (Although he has said some really strange things :lol:)

Also, remember that Bush has a Texan accent.

He could be saying "great issues"

Please post the entire sentence.

Q2 i think this sentence has double meanings-I live with Will for two months. Seems quite straightforward to me. Why do you think there is a double meaning?

Q3 Is 'stop in ' used correctly in sentence 'I will not stop in our effort to hunt down and kill the terrorists. '?
If it's right, what does it mean? "We will not stop [in our effort] ..." OR "I will not stop [in my effort]..." - I/we won't cease from hunting down and killing the terrorists.

Q4 They are on their way to doing that. It should be on their way to do that, I think. No - doing that is fine. More context will help to know why this verb form is used.

Many thanks in advance.
