Obama's slogan: looking to replace Hope and Change
Reuters ^ | 18 Feb 2012 | Jeff Mason

WASHINGTON, Feb 18 (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."

But Obama's surrogates have roadtested some slogans in recent months, including "Winning The Future," which the White House used to promote its budget, and "Greater Together," which the campaign has used to brand its youth outreach effort.

A new tagline will have to reflect a new reality.

It’s like hiring a new kid as cashier at a burger joint. You just hope that they can make change, otherwise they nickel and dime you to death.

That certainly looks hopeful to me... but then I'm an optimist...

Or perhaps her right is named "Hope" and her left is named "Change".

In which case, they're both working out fine, thanks... :)

Sarah Palin gave Obama his new slogan, he should use it.

“How’s that Hopey Changey thing working out for ya?”

May I submit:

“Obama 2012 - It’s Mourning In America”

“Weaker Friends, Stronger Enemies, and a Crippled America - That’s Par For the Course”

“The Clinton’s stole the WH china; the Obama’s stole your future”

“What’s Black and White and Red All Over? Obama 2012”

“Not the smartest President ever - but smarter than his supporters”

“Let Them Eat Arugula”

“Obama 2012 - No Greater Friend To Our Enemies, No Greater Enemy To Our Friends”

“So A Muslim, a Marxist, and a Mulatto walk into a bar, and the Bartender says, ‘Mr. Obama, this is no joke!’”

“Some People Make Things Happen, Some People Watch Things Happen, and Some People Say, ‘What Next, Mr. Soros?’”

but let’s cut to the chase:

“Obama Macht Frei”
