White House hopes Obama's latest slogan catches on
Los Angeles Times ^ | 10/26/11 | Peter Nicholas

Posted on 10/26/2011 9:10:38 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

Another month, another White House catchphrase.

“Pass this bill” looks to have been retired by White House message-makers.

The heyday for President Obama’s three-word exhortation came in September, after he put forward his $447-billion jobs plan. Speech after speech, Obama commanded lawmakers to “pass this bill.’’ Day after day, Congress refused.

With the impasse in its seventh week, the White House is trying a different approach, encapsulated in a new three-word slogan that is part plea, part battle cry.

“We can’t wait.’’

My first thought too. Sounds like a little kid so it might catch on with Obamas core groups.

I think the slogan is fantastic.

Perfectly reflects the impetuous, childish, and unrealistic nature of this Administration and the uninformed pissy dumbasses who support them.

Sounds like a brat screaming for a toy in the supermarket.

This guy is truly clueless. The slogan HAS caught on, big-time. It’s just not at all the way the White Hut intended. Maybe if Peter Nicholas ever cracked a conservative website (or, heck, any of a thousand FaceBook shares) he might be aware of how that stupid slogan has caught on.

Hey Barry! Spread the word to your Wall Street Anarchists to call their congressman and demand they pass your

Special High Income Taxation

bill NOW! The acronym will amazingly catch on faster than any one you have proposed to date.

This is the sum total of their intellect. Stupid bumper stickers.

Empty slogans and jargon to match an equally empty suit.

Anyone else remember:

"We're the ones we have been waiting for!" ?

Well guess what you "ones", you trashed the place; so yeah, we CAN wait.

Oh Gawd - BO is babbling to a crowd of students right now. He makes no sense - just stumbling and halting rhetoric about everything and nothing.

Now mumbling about ‘faith in America and dreams’ Moronic!

Where’s the remote? - I cannot take it!!!

The LA Times also overlooks the signal that Obama will continue to mine the racial vein, while trying to glom onto the MLK Jr. legacy.

"Why We Can't Wait" is the title of a book by MLK.

Hope and change
Win the future
Pass this bill
We can't wait

Funny how he sticks to the three word phrases. Oddly enough, most of my three word replies to his nonsense start with "go."

Republicans should reply persistently that Obama is spending money today that our grandchildren haven't even earned yet.
