Obama Ties "Forward" Campaign Slogan To The Constitution. (More Election Rhetoric)
Real Clear Politics Video ^ | May 14, 2012 | Ian Schwartz

Posted on 05/15/2012 7:30:15 AM PDT by yoe

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.

It is a mark of either the rampant stupidity or cupidity of the mass media that anything this man says is treated with less than outright hilarity, knee-slapping guffaws or withering sarcasm.

Nothing he says bears any relation to anything any sane adult would recognize as reality. Much is diametrically opposed to reality.

Forward with what? Fast and Furious genocide of Mexicans at the hands of racists like Holder?

One cannot file for bankruptcy and get free handouts until one figures they made the mistakes. Charity to the stupid so the stupid can keep being stupid is not charity.

The Constitution is anathema to Obama and all like him who despise freedom and believe that government must control every aspect of our lives. Liberals only invoke the Constitution or Jesus, who they also despise, when they can twist it to advance their socialist agenda.

"provide for the common defense and general Welfare"

Obama feeeeeeels that he has the authority to make each of us a ward of the state and boasts that his doctrine is for ward . . . .

RE: the 2008 "Change" campaign slogan...

"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."

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 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!

Washington Times, April 30, 2012:

New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

[snip]

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 European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word "Forward" with the "O" having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign's official beginning. ..."

"...he has the authority to make each of us a ward of the state..."

Which brings this quote to mind..."As in the Soviet system the criminal element is seen as “politically reliable” hence the blind eye to attacks on the populace".....this is for all politicians regardless of affiliation.

No, we look forward and back. This is why people are interested in their roots and why cars have rearview mirrors and history books and memories and scrap books and reunions and memorials. Life is not simply what we imagine will happen in the future.

Indeed, insurance to keep in power....

In French boarding schools the teachers would not check who cheated or not on tests, but on the final exam that counted, it was all locked down. Most of the cheaters failed and the other did ok.

This is not school, however, this is real bankruptcy, and we cannot play with cheating games like these to the murderous tone of the future generations which are stuck with this.
