    An example of how stupid the current Administration thinks everyone else is seems to be the latest attempt at changing the perceptions of an unpopular issue.

    We're supposed to forget about Global Warming. It's now gonna be called Global Climate Disruption.

    Sounds ominous doesn't it. They tried to change Global Warming to Climate Change before. So maybe we'll stop laughing when they call it Global Climate Disruption.



    Ever get the feeling that these people are just selling you a product not a reality?



    Let's see now. Terrorists are not terrorists (unless they're Tea Party Members)

    The war on terror is now Overseas Contingency Operation.

    Stimulus programs are now called Jobs Programs.

    The Summer of Recovery is now admitted to be just a slogan, not something that they expected to happen.

    Bailouts are now called.......anything but a bailout.

    Suicide bombings, car bombings, IEDs or anything else terrorist related is now called Man-made Disasters.

    Universal Health Care is now Affordable Health Care.

    An across the board tax cut is just Tax cuts for the rich.

    Not letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans expire is now called the Obama Middle Class Tax Cut.

    They've got to be ether high or desperate to think that anyone will fall for this nonsense.

    Gotta keep such a valuable tax revenue earner at the forefront, regardless of how many relaunches politicians deem necessary! Eventually they'll run out of spin and it'll simply be called weather tax!

    They tried Carbon Tax.

    Now it's Cap & Trade.

    I'm waiting for the new name for that one.

    seriously muddy, you have issues.
