Mao was another leftist who liked to use “forward” in his slogans.
That did come to mind. Mao, then the LSD stoner bus, now Obama. Put 'em all together and what's that spell..? Failure, but so deluded it's not noticed, but when it is noticed. noticing is punished.
Then, as Mao ordered rapid industrialisation during the Great Leap Forward, the grain supplies disappeared. Simultaneously local officials, terrified of failure, began to report fictional bumper harvests. Mao, meanwhile, publicly humiliated any party leader who voiced doubts. The result was the greatest famine in modern history.
Not cool, dude. not cool at all.
Another splendid triumph of the will to power in modern times. The monsters behind 0bama dream of this.
