'Forward' is Nearly Perfect Campaign Slogan for President Obama
Yahoo! News ^ | April 30, 2012 | L. Vincent Poupard

Posted on 04/30/2012 2:01:45 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

COMMENTARY | President Barack Obama's campaign staff has released the president's new campaign slogan, according to the Associated Press. "Forward" will be the simple statement President Obama will wrap his campaign around. As someone who studies politics, I see it very fitting that the president would use this word as his slogan.

The goal of the new "Forward" slogan is twofold in that the president believes he will move the country forward and that there is still more work to do in the future. Oddly, he might not have had so much work to do in the future if he had not forced seven months of congressional debate over a health care package instead of working on the creation of jobs. When you add on the five months of debating over the failed stimulus package, we see how at least a year of President Obama's term was wasted.

The first four years of President Obama has already personified "Forward."

Instead of doing what he can to decrease the amount of debt the U.S. owes, he has acquired more debt so we can push our problems forward to another generation. We have the ability to move forward as a country through his infamous $800 billion loan from China, but we will be paying for it again in the future.

Heh. He stole MSNBC’s tag line.

Even better ... their commercials still say “lean forward”. Inadvertent truth in advertising.

It’s also the slogan for an Italian fascist political party.

“Forward!” was the slogan of the Italian Fascists.

Here is the song they taught the school children in Mussolini’s Italy. My mother never forgot it.

Fascisti Avanti!
Camicia nera,
È un simbolo,
Dela vita scheda!

Which means ...

Fascists Forward!
The black shirt,
Is a symbol
Of the ordered life.

School children are already singing praises to 0bama0. They may as well include this little chanson while they salute the giant photo of the Dear Leader at the front of the classroom.

It's all in your perspective.

On January 4, 1905, the first issue of the Bolshevik newspaper Vperyod (Forward) appeared.

Obama is unbelievable. “Forward Workers!” is a traditional communist rallying cry, which of course Obama knows full well. Lenin and Trotsky both used it in their writings, and you still see modern communists use it. It’s kind of a dog whistle for radical lefties, along the lines of “What is to be done?”

Move “forward” as quickly as quickly as possible because we don’t want to look back at the terrible job that we have done. Oh yeah, and blame Bush.

Can anyone photoshop this for me?

It's trivial. Take the EXACT PICTURE...and after the "OR" put an "E"; then between the final "R" and the "D" put the letters "NE".

FOREWARNED.

And suddenly the dark background and the diffuse lighting become rather macabre and menacing.

Cheers!
