    Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) – The term BDS refers to a seriously paranoid state-of-mind, that affects some liberals. They also oppose any position advocated by the President just because he supports it, regardless of the position's merits.
    “Charles Krauthammer coined the term ‘Bush Derangement Syndrome’ to describe what he saw to be the irrational anger of people toward President George W. Bush.”

    gravitas – grave, very serious; a Latin word made popular by Al Gore in his campaign for presidency in 2000, using it to portray himself as experienced
    “My parents had a gravitas expression when my report card came in.”

    vast right wing conspiracy –coined by Hillary Clinton; referring to the accusations and investigations involving President Bill Clinton’s alleged
    “The vast right wing conspiracies during President Clinton’s term caused much controversy and confrontation.”

    dollar diplomacy – a political term made popular by William H. Taft guaranteeing the legitimacy foreign loans
    “Dollar diplomacy as a foreign policy helps stimulate interest in American investment.”

    veepstakes – the process in which a presidential candidate picks his running mate
    “In the 2008 veepstakes, Senator Obama chose Joe Biden as his running mate.”

    front porch campaign – an electoral campaign where the candidate remains close at home to make speeches and rally supporters (used by 29th president Warren Harding)
    “President Harding had literally run his front porch campaign on his front porch: making speeches to a crowd assembled in front of his home.”

    O.K. – the eighth president of the United States, Martin Van Buren, would say O.K. as a meaning for his enthusiastic approval (an abbreviation of his nickname Old Kinderhook)
    “‘O.K.!’ was our immediate answer when our teacher asked if we wanted to watch a video for the period.”

    Missouri bellwether – a political phenomena describing the fact that Missouri has voted for the winning president all but two times
    “Missouri had “mis-voted” only in 1956 and 2008. Having ‘foretold’ the results of presidential campaigns for so long, it has been used as a model for political trends.”

    Bushisms – the unconventional words or pronunciations used in public speaking by President George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush

    normalcy- a word rescued from obscurity by President Warren G. Harding
    “Soon after the events of a recent storm, things returned to normalcy after the water had finished draining.”



    These are just some back up words:

    Kinsley gaffe – "a gaffe in Washington" where a politician tells the truth by accident

    swing state – a state where neither presidential candidate has strong support in

    October surprise – a news event that has some political effect on the outcome of an election, especially a presidential election

    political football – a political issue that is constantly debated about but never resolved

    third rail – a political metaphor that denotes a topic to be "charged" and so untouchable

    Reagan's coattails – refers to the influence of Ronald Reagan’s popularity in elections after his own
