“…the spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless...They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves, but in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights.” (Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Chapter 17. February 27, 1787.)
“[I]t is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it.”
(Patrick Henry, in his famous oration at St. John’s Church 1775.)

Its on its way back, and like what the Moonbats are doing AGW, they are simply trying to confuse the issue in Orwellian double-speak to make their cause sound appealing to the uninformed.
They've been doing that for a while... Take the "Fairness Doctrine" as an example. Who wouldn't be for something that says we should be fair, right? Sound like a good doctrine? Well, of course, until you take a look at it. But they swing it around like a club come election time: "My opponent is not in favor of being fair!"
Anyhow, take a peak at this stuff I got from the Media Research Center:
