    President Obama referred to the Constitution's ability to help those who had originally been left out to fight their way in, especially when it came to unresolved race and gender rights. Obama likened the Constitutional to a "constant forward movement" in his commencement address to the women-only Barnard College. "What made this document special was that it made it possible for those who were left out to fight their way back in a constant forward movement," Obama said. "We look forward, not back." Obama's campaign slogan, FORWARD, was introduced last month.

    Michelle Obama urges NC A&T grads to seek changeBy EMERY P. DALESIO, Associated Press – 3 hours ago GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — The historic action that four North Carolina college students took that led to desegregation at lunch counters more than half a century ago shows what young people can do to change their world for the better, first lady Michelle Obama said during a commencement speech Saturday. Mrs. Obama addressed a crowd of about 15,000, including more than 1,200 graduates of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, one of the state university system's historically black schools. **SNIP** North...

    Alyssa Kjellberg still can't believe it. Two years beyond college, her career path has led only to jobs at a greenhouse, a hotel front desk, an aunt's office and a seasonal landscaping company -- all paying less than $12 an hour. After applying for about 100 jobs, the environmental science major even offered "one week of free labor'' last summer to get a foot in the door at the landscaping company. But that job ended with the season, as will the one she's in now. Her dream of becoming a park ranger or environmental educator is drifting away. Kjellberg had...

  • Ten Rejected Obama Campaign Slogans

    05/02/2012 1:45:31 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 44 replies
    It wasn't long after the Obama campaign revealed "Forward" as its new reelection slogan this morning that it was accused of stealing from, or perhaps synergizing with, liberal cable-news network MSNBC, whose motto has been "Lean Forward" since October 2010. However, top sources within the Obama campaign* tell Daily Intel that before settling on "Forward," they debated borrowing even more directly from other famous slogans. Among the early options the campaign considered: You’re in good hands with Obama Like a good neighbor, Obama is there Got health insurance? He's g-r-r-r-e-a-t! It's not TV, it's BHO You've come a long way,...

    Michelle Obama seems to have tried out a new campaign slogan at today's fundraiser in Las Vegas. "I’m not going to kid you," the first lady said at the fundraiser, according to the pool report. "This journey is going to be long. And it’s going to be hard. And there are going to be plenty of twists and turns along the way. That’s how change always happens in this country. The reality is real change is slow and it never happens all at once." Seems like a winning slogan to me! "Change is slow."

    WashTimes ^ | April 30, 2012 | Victor Mortan
    The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism. Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)." "The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications," the online encyclopedia explains. The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of...

    The Hill ^ | 4/30/2012 | Jonathan Easley
    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.

    Touting the auto bailout at a fundraiser in Detroit, President Obama told supporters we are now seeing what change looks like. "In just three years, because of what you did in 2008, we've begun to see what change looks like. We've begun to see it," Obama said. Transcript below. Obama: When you decide to support a candidate named Barack Hussein Obama, you know the odds are not necessarily in your favor. You didn't need a poll to tell you that wasn't going to be a sure thing. But the point is, you didn't get involved in this campaign just because...

    Keith Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World” segment might be gone from Al Gore’s Current TV, but the name-calling isn’t. On Current TV’s “The Young Turks” on Tuesday, host Cenk Uygur attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for claiming the mission of “the far left” is to silence some. Uygur tied the crusade against the left’s latest boogeyman, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), to an O’Reilly complaint about the tactics used by left-wing groups to “silence” opponents. “Alright, before I go to my panel, let me just level Bill O’Reilly,” Uygur said. “First of all it is your right-wingers...

The House Un-American Activities Committee must be re-opening for business! That’s the headline you’ll see all over the left side of the blogosphere.

    One of the cyclical trends that materializes with economic declines of this nature is that whoever is in power is typically thrown out with the bath water. Australia is turning center-right and the issues are tax grabs, illegal aliens, and the all too familiar political promise – CHANGE! In US Politics, every election since 1900 has promised change. Of course the only change that takes place is boosting up the political system. In Australia, the Liberal National Party (LNP) is a political party in Queensland, Australia. It was formed on 26 July 2008 by the merger of the Queensland divisions...
