@9 Really? You're making up your own edits to the actual AP release?

"The midpriced department store chain reported a bigger-than-expected loss and plummeting sales. Shoppers are still not buying into a bold new pricing strategy. Penney even withdrew its full-year profit guidance.

After the report, Moody's Investors Services downgraded Penney's rating deeper into junk-bond terrain.

The bleak performance marked the second-straight quarter of severe sales declines since Penney got rid of most steep, temporary discounts in favor of everyday lower prices. The report confirmed it's going to be a hard sell to shoppers who are used to big sale signs and coupons."

@6 It's not about whether it's actually "redefining" it or not, it's about how the particular language is now associated with one specific side of the argument. You could say that the healthcare overhaul is actually "obamacare" in that yes, he did push it and owns it as his legislation -- but the phrase obamacare is almost exclusively used, negatively, by the opposition, and would never be considered a neutral way to describe it.

To have a neutral vote on the issue you have to use language that is neutral to the argument at hand.

Publicly invite Santorum to represent their side, in a grudge match of sorts.
