Obama’s new slogan: ‘Greater together’
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/23/12 | Neil Munro

Posted on 02/23/2012 9:04:48 PM PST by Nachum

President Barack Obama has an emerging slogan — “greater together” — that he’s using to spur support among younger voters worried about jobs, education and debt.

The collectivist slogan is appearing in more places, including fundraisers and in the title of the “Greater Together Student Summit Tour,” which is sending Obama’s deputies to colleges to galvanize students and youth.

On Feb. 1, Obama used the slogan to spur support among young and old African-Americans, and especially African-American women.

Less than half of younger African-American men are in the workforce, and the average wealth of African-American families was slashed by the collapse of the government-caused mortgage bubble.

Previous generations of African-Americans “made it possible for someone like me to be here today. … We are greater together than we can ever be on our own,” he said in a short video posted on his campaign website.

I have spent my entire life chasing and zapping Commies for our Gov.

It stuns me that the Gov now embraces them.

It just blows my mind.

Greater together? Sounds like an add for (1) bacon and eggs or (2) spaghetti and meatballs.

Parents need to get their kids the hell out of these nurseries of vice and indoctrination. It’s time for parents to wake the hell up and take an active role in selecting universities and colleges.

The young people cannot receive financial aid on their own (without parental participation) until they are 24 years old. It’s time to stop this madness.

I’ll take a rugged individualist over a collectivist any old day. Individuals built this great country. The collective does nothing but take greatness down.

I saw the `Up With People’ people perform in Columbus, GA in 1965. The fine actress Glenn Close was one of the performers. I was only 11 years old and with my family, but I snuck backstage after the show and we made sweet, sweet love.
She wrote this song about it and mailed it to me: It was called `Greater Together.’
But she had a screen career waiting for her, and I had middle school. sigh

I remember growing up believing, and saying, that the only good Commie is a dead Commie.

Nowadays if you say it out loud, the Secret Service will pay you a visit.

Be right back, there’s someone at the door.

“Greater together.” Something obozo would say to his boyfriends. Mooooochelle, on the other hand, has never heard these words. She just signed on the dotted line to pose as obozo’s beard, and then they went out to dinner. A damn good meal tops everything!

“I’m here to reaffirm my deep conviction that we are greater together than we are on our own. … This country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, and when everyone plays by the same rules,”

Greatness, then, comes not being a successful individual, but from being in groups, and taking it one step farther down the shining path, being dependent on government for "greatness".

The big problem is the reply...”We are greater together”.

“Sorry dear, the last four years don`t support that at all. The opposite in fact”. DIVORCE.

`No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be

The Turtles might disagree, but it does sound better than, “Resistance is futile.”

Borg was such a great admirer of the Scandinavian socialist miracle
that he packed his bags and went to live in tax-haven Montecarlo.

The last group of college kids who voted for Obama have been truly, deeply and everlastingly screwed. Lucky for Obama there is a new crop every year and all his last crew are gone from college, back at home working part time service jobs (if they are lucky) and struggling under mountains of debt,

Previous generations of African-Americans “made it possible for someone like me to be here today.

Of course, Obama has little in common with them either racially or culturally.

If you grater together cheddar cheese, onions and carrots, you can make pretty decent potato soup.

Strange, I can only find "President Obama & The African American Community" on the White House website.

More like he trying to get the African-Americans together again to vote for him based on his race.
