On one of the Sunday morning propaganda...I mean "news" shows, someone said Obama won among the "working class".

It's really quite impressive how the left can utter such propaganda with a straight face.

Who Obama won with is in fact the non-working class. If working were a requirement for voting, Romney would have won by a landslide.

Words have meaning. Words are powerful. I sure wish that conservatives would challenge the propagandists when they utter phrases like "working class" (when talking about the hand-outs class), "women's health" (when referring to ending the life of the unborn), "tax fairness" (when they mean the rich should pay all of the taxes, instead of simply the overwhelming majority, "undocumented workers" (instead of those who came here illegally and work here illegally), "revenues" (not "increased" revenues, mind you, just "revenues"...when they are referring to tax increases, inevitably on the wealthy)...
