Obama's slogan: looking to replace Hope and Change
Reuters ^ | 02/17/2012 | Jeff Mason

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Winning The Future. Greater Together. We Don't Quit.

They may not be official but those are all phrases that could in one form or another be candidates to become President Barack Obama's re-election slogan.

Advisers say a fresh slogan to replace the winning "Change we can believe in" mantra of 2008, is unlikely to appear before Obama knows who his Republican opponent will be and starts big campaign travel swings, likely in the spring or summer.

His campaign posters now say simply, "Obama 2012."

"You're hopeless, and we need a change"?

"What's in your wallet?"

"I Have a Scheme"

Brother can you spare a trillion???

Here's my guess. He'll likely use something like “Path to Prosperity.” Something that doesn't deny and challenge the last four years, as “Hope and change” does, but also implies a transition to something better. It would afford him the opportunity so spin those four years as sluggish, but necessary, all the while keeping the slogan concise, hopeful, and rhythmically appealing. It would also blend in quite well, philosophically speaking, with his logo.

His old posters and slogans and bumpers, if they could be gotten (or reprinted in masse) should SARCASTICALLY be slapped all over the United States. I mean EVERYWHERE. People will see that, feeling the economic pain they are currently in, and think to themselves “That’s RIGHT!! That SOB promised us all this so called CHANGE AND HOPE and it was all bullshit.” Use their own past words, actions, and empty promises, right out of their own mouths, against them. How could they tell the opposition to stop putting up these old 2008 posters and stickers.

Obama should just run against himself. He can say this country is sick and tired of slogans and that we need to replace “hope and change” with real action.

Before he starts??? Are you kidding me?

He has never stopped.

If he campaigns any more he will never be in Washington.

The American people should never elect anyone in their 40’s in these ages. They are too self absorbed. As in nose in the air and look at the money I can spend on vacations, bs, and the like. This dude does not have a clue and he is pulling the rug out from under a load of folks so they will be dependent and get their votes.

LOL! Obama is the M/S "Clippy" of politicians; nagging, annoying, in your face, and always with the wrong answer.

Got a bumper sticker...

From here.

I have no affiliation with them. They messed up my order and gave me some free bumper stickers to make up the error.

I was in Chicago yesterday. I saw a black guy coming in to pay his parking spot at the airport, and I thought, HEY, this guy would have been a better black person to fill the WH? I said to myself, I bet he has a H.S. academic record, probably someone in town remembers him as the clown, or the quiet guy. I bet 98% of the folks in Chicago have a paper trail. A warrant for their arrest, some awards for singing in the choir? WHY did the American electorate hire someone to be the CEO that never grew up in the USA, but knows more about the chants of the mosques in Indonesia? And his DREAM of a Father is somewhere in East Africa. Not a single DNA drop of evidence in his blood that he was of the plantations. I’ll NEVER know how or why blacks would allow him to be elected. But then I’ll never know how Evangelicals bought in and climbed aboard the Band Wagon of Jimmy Carta.

Given that nothing has changed(expept u are 3X deeper in debt) the only hope is to have a new president.
