And “Homosexual” became “Gay,” and “Liberal” became “Progressive,” and “Terrorist,” became “Enemy Combatant,” and “Global Warming” became “Climate Change...”

Liberals rename everything to shift negative attention to a new term that will take years for conservatives to besmirch again.

Is this the point at which we declare victory and begin a slow withdrawal?

Obama finds the word ‘Freedom’ offensive and thinks it is not appropriate to arrogantly spread such Americanisms around the world.

Operation New Dawn? Sounds like it was named after a brand of soap.

I was expecting more along the lines of "Operation Crusader Occupation."

“Mission Accomplished,” eh? I hope this new naming idea bites them on the arse because Obama will have clear ownership from this point forward. well, he can always blame the Generals, Gates and ... even though it is becoming a joke in the MSM no less, Bush.

“New Dawn”?

Sounds like Obama’s Naming Czar is the same guy who names feminine products for Procter and Gamble.

"We"? What "we"? 0bama and Biden voted against the thing every chance they got. They dragged Bush's name through the mud every chance they got. They did everything they could to prevent a positive outcome because it was inconvenient for their party and to hell with their country. There isn't any "we" here that includes them.

Yea, he’s going to name it “Hope and Change” since it has worked so well in America.
