    Today’s four words: Vorwärts! Vorwärts! Vorwärts! Vorwärts! Everything was going along just fine: we had a brand new campaign slogan (“Forward,” in case you live in a cave), Bin Laden was still dead, and Big Guy was busy giving himself a shout out while spiking the ball in the end zone. Then someone breaks the story about our new campaign marching tune being a Third Reich rip off. Things went downhill quickly from there. Sure enough, someone tipped Hitler off about the copyright infringement and he pitched a fit.See for yourself:

    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,...

    A few people have commented on the fact that Obama's 2012 campaign slogan 'Forward' has a long history in socialist and communist ideology. The most chilling and in your face example I've seen so far is from the National Socialist Hitler Youth Anthem "Forward,Forward." The themes of youth have always been a big part of Obama's campaigns, but seeing his campaign slogan being sung by actual Hitler Youth Members really brings it all together and creeps me out. As I said on Twitter, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to release it as campaign material. Forward Forward

    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.

    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.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. communications authorities on Thursday took a small but significant step toward regulating high-speed Internet in a bid to reclaim oversight, setting the stage for an eventual legal showdown with industry heavyweights. Big broadband providers like AT&T Inc, Verizon Communications Inc and Comcast Corp oppose the move by the Federal Communications Commission, fearing the agency may heavily regulate their businesses in ways that could crimp profits and cast a cloud on investments. The FCC voted 3-2 to collect public comments on whether the agency should reclassify broadband regulation under existing phone rules -- typically considered a stricter...
