As his battle with the Republicans focuses more on the debt limit and less on ObamaCare, the president has invented a new vocabulary to suit his political needs."Seeking to raise the debt limit" is out. "Preventing an economic shutdown" is in."Debt" is never mentioned. The word is "obligations". ...The words "debt" and "borrowing" and "spending" are politically anathema. So Obama has to invent new words to describe his position. ...All of these word games are designed to camouflage how unattractive the president's position really is. Every American understands that before your raise your credit limit on your cards, you had better limit your spending and change your ways.
