What Works and What Doesn't

Scott McClellan's pre-briefing briefing:

"Blame Game" must be paired with the term "Finger-Pointing" for maximum effectiveness. Additionally, reiterate the blame game talking point while appearing not to use talking points by changing the nominal phrase into a verb. Finally, there is no longer plenty of time to look back. There is no time to look back, now or in the future. Because looking back means blame-gaming and finger-pointing and it appears that the fingers cannot be pointed at the Democrats this time.

I have extrapolated this information from a sophisticated analysis of language repetition, shown below.

Yesterday's Press Briefing

Blame Game: 7
Finger-Pointing: 1
Time to look back/evaluate/analyze/etc.: 9

Today's Press Briefing

Blame Game: 5
"Blame-Gaming": 3
Finger-Pointing: 8
Time to look back/evaluate/analyze/etc.: 1
