Barack Obama’s negative vocabulary isn’t as much fixated on one individual as it is on the Republican party as a whole and their handling of the budget. The words “congress”, “republicans”, “budget”, “war”, “cuts” and “tax” show how specific Obama has been about criticizing the Republicans for creating a war in congress and failing to put together a solid budget plan. The words “thinly”, “veiled”, “social” and “darwinisim” show how significantly amplified Obama’s accusation of Ryan’s budget plan as “thinly-veiled social Darwinism” was in the media.
