David Plouffe Talks About Obama's Package

WASHINGTON, DC - Senior aide to President Obama, David Plouffe, warned Congressional Democrats to avoid the use of the word "package" when talking about stimulus "plans".

He said that "package" can have negative connotations, especially if an African-American is delivering it.

If President Obama presents another "big stimulus package" to Americans, the public may think that he is looking for something other than political satisfaction.

If the Democrats "grease Obama's big package" to get the legislation passed, it may backfire and might even explode, instead of spurting the economy forward.

Plouffe suggested that Democrats use more benign terms, such as "treatment", "undertaking" or "procedure".
