Hey Buddy, Can You Spare Some Reform?

After weeks of “private talks” which appear to have revolved largely around a copy of Roget’s Thesaurus, White House officials have come up with a completely revamped communications strategy.  As a senior White House official put it to Politico:

“Reform is the new change.”

The White House believes that replacing “change” with “reform,” will better move forward its political agenda since, as we all know, the only reason people oppose health care reform is because President Obama did not explain it “more clearly to the American people."

Shady deals done in secret?

A budget buster?

Will just make things worse?

Sure, but those are all peripheral issues, the real problem has really always been word choice. 

Call it, governing by Boggle.

For the moment, “hope” seems to have survived the axe, although should “reform” not prove to be a winner, don’t be surprised to see some changes, er, reforms, coming to that as well.
