Political Focus Groups spend a lot of time figuring out how to give bad news in a flowery way. Or on the flip, demonize the good because it is an opponent.
global warming - (saying it is like kissing yourself) who wouldn't want to follow that?
quantitative easing - warm and fuzzy, like easing your belt after a big meal.
the list goes on ad-invinitum
Hate your opponent, love your own. Ignore the substance of subject. Just follow the words flow. (ever notice how obama almost sings his speeches? - tune out the words and listen to the word flow)
What a world, eh?
