A new word Obama administration won’t say – ‘evacuation’

“It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.”

Another word has been added to the long list of words the Obama administration refuses to say – evacuation.

In a bizarre press conference Tuesday, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the emergency evacuation of embassy employees from Yemen due to the biggest al-Qaida terrorist plot in years was not an evacuation.

It’s a – wait, get this – “reduction in staffing.”

According to Politico, Psaki said:

It is inaccurate to call it an evacuation. This is a reduction in staffing. We still have a presence in Yemen. The U.S. government does. The State Department does. We still will be able to provide some services.

Remember in 2008 when then-Senator Obama slammed John McCain and Sarah Palin’s campaign slogan “new change?”

“You can put lipstick on a pig. It’s still a pig. You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It’s still gonna stink.”

Really? And look at you now, the master of doublespeak.

Here is an administration that won’t say terrorism – it’s “man-caused disaster,” and ludicrously classifies the Fort Hood terrorist massacre as “workplace violence.”

An administration that won’t call Egypt’s military coup a coup, hell, they aren’t going to call it anything.

“We have determined that we do not have to make a determination,” on the coup that’s not a coup, the semantics-challenged Pskai also said on Tuesday, Business Insider reported.

Liberals love to think we are stupid, don’t they? Doublespeak be damned.
