Let’s start where it first began.
No, not the election of Barack Hussein Obama, although that would be a good call.
Jump further ahead in the story.
Back in March 2011, when Obama started lobbing missiles at Libya, liberals assured us that we were NOT at war.
Instead the administration described it as time-limited, scope-limited, kinetic military activity- which is just another made up phrase that liberals use to remind us that they are the people Orwell warned us about.
And thankfully, NPR-- yes THAT NPR, the Big Bird NPR-- allowed us to remain calm, by helping the administration keep it simple.
