MURDOCK: The liberal lingo fandango

Squirting perfume on a smelly label won’t change a meaning

Carbon dioxide helps plants thrive, as we humans exhale it. So, instead of attacking CO2, Mr. Obama now derides “carbon pollution.” This cleverly connotes charcoal dust falling from the skies.

Mr. Obama’s spendaholism remains a national crisis, even though he praises “investment.”

So when progressives oppose climate change and seek more investment in SNAP, Reaganites should reject such jargon. Instead, remind Americans that these are just liberals screaming about global warming and demanding more government spending on food stamps.
