Obama Web video touts successes, unveils new 2012 slogan: ‘Forward’
The Hill ^ | 4/30/2012 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 04/30/2012 8:10:07 AM PDT by Baynative

The Obama campaign released a seven-minute Web video on Monday highlighting the president’s first-term accomplishments, contrasting them with the challenges he inherited from the prior administration.

The video teases a new campaign slogan, "Forward," and while it doesn’t mention Obama’s likely Republican opponent, Mitt Romney, it blames GOP policies for the still-sluggish economy.

The ad begins by focusing on events from January 2008 onward, sketching a downward-trending timeline detailing mounting job losses, the foreclosure crisis, the stock market plunge and the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, with pictures of former President George W. Bush beneath.

The slogan should be “FORWARD LEFT!”

Forward? That's their slogan?

They missed a great opportunity here. The best slogan was offered by Tamaria Denise Epps:

Obama Owns This Motherf***er.

He sure does own it. Now let him defend it. Oops, he can't.

So MSNBC’s slogan is “Lean Forward” with Obama behind saying “Forward!”

Sounds about right.

It's a subset of MSNBC’s “Lean Forward.”

Of course, NOTHING is ever his fault!

His campaign should be called FAILED at everything he tried. Obama = FAIL!!!

unveils new 2012 slogan: 'Forward'

A Landslide Mandate For Change

A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!

We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-people’s movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all people’s movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.

The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and people’s unity.

There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.

The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA

"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.

The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."

Change is Here, Change is Coming

Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:

Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.

In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.

We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.

We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.

In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.

Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.

Isn’t it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?

Can’t we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?

And isn’t the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system – a system steeped in racism – no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?

All these things are within reach now!

Curiously, MSNBC's slogan is "Lean Forward".

Making sense, of course -- after all, MSNBC is the official Press Organ of the Obama Administration.

> new 2012 slogan: ‘Forward’

LOL!!

That was the Campaign Slogan of the Italian Fascisti.

“Avanti!” (Forward!)

Here is the theme song they gave to the school children. My mother remembers it to this day.

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

Which means ...

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

The ad begins by focusing on events from January 2008 onward

ONE HUNDRED TENTH CONGRESS - JANUARY 4TH 2007:

U.S. House of Representatives: 233 Democrats and 202 Republicans

US Senate: 49 Democrats, 2 Independents (aligned with the Democrats) and 49 Republicans

Which party took control of the checkbook on JANUARY 4th 2007??? What party took control of congress in 2007?? Just what did Barack Ubama inherit that he didn't vote for??
