Perfect:

A year after promising to direct federal attention and support to needy areas across the country, President Obama said Thursday that the government would begin helping five economically hard-hit communities fight poverty and assist children.

In a ceremony in the East Room of the White House, Mr. Obama said the five areas would become “Promise Zones,” where federal agencies will cut through red tape in an effort to give struggling residents a chance at better lives.

I’d have opted for calling them “Obamanous Zones” instead, mostly because it avoids the word “promise,” which only the “Lie of the Year” winner would have the gall to use so soon after being named the “Lie of the Year” winner.

The five Obama “Promise Zones” will be nicknamed as follows:

1) Create Thousands of Shovel Ready Jobs
2) Most Transparent Administration in History
3) Solyndra is the Future
4) History Will View Biden as One of the Best VP’s Ever
5) If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep Your Plan

Below, Stuart Varney shows the first five areas that will be designated as “Promise Zones.” Note Sheila Jackson Lee saying the term “welfare” should be changed to “transitional living fund”:
