Trying to control the other fellow’s vocabulary

Obama truly thinks his words are so magical they can change reality.  It’s true that, as to the people over whom you have control, changing and shrinking vocabulary can affect thoughts, but Obama doesn’t seem to grasp that he has no control over the jihadists.  If he did grasp that, he wouldn’t have his administration saying “Abracadabra” and then pronouncing the jihad against America over by removing words from the American vocabulary:

It’s official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a “war on terrorism.” Neither is it fighting “jihadists” or in a “global war.”

President Obama’s top homeland security and counterterrorism official took all three terms off the table of acceptable words inside the White House during a speech Thursday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“The President does not describe this as a ‘war on terrorism,'” said John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, who outlined a “new way of seeing” the fight against terrorism.

The only terminology that Mr. Brennan said the administration is using is that the U.S. is “at war with al Qaeda.”

“We are at war with al Qaeda,” he said. “We are at war with its violent extremist allies who seek to carry on al Qaeda’s murderous agenda.”

Bugs Bunny had a word for Obama:  What a maroon.
