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 video has only been watched about 306 times yet it has over 900 likes. Huh. Fuzzy Math.

I disliked it but at least I started to watch the video, got through about 20 seconds of it.

This FOOL and his Controllers need to be ousted out of power(by vote of course) and we need to get people educated about what has happened to our country and get them to understand why we need to correct it.

The problem might be most of the people who understand the facts and how we cannot continue to pay for almost 50% of the other peoples’ life, are educated beyond a 5th grade reading level.

More specifically, when we try to express ourselves to others we are probably talking or writing at a level they can’t or just wont take the time to comprehend.

Is there a way to dumb down our ideas, not shortchange them, but make they easier concepts so someone who reads or comprehends at a 4th grade level can understand them?

I am concerned that our country will be lost if Obama is reelected. He is gutting the military(don’t see that on the news do you?) and building up law enforcement agencies and even arming up IRS agents.

You should have put a barf alert on that link!

I see they're only letting in approved comments too so it's a giant orgy of libtard kumbaya.

They misunderstood him. Obama did not say “Forward” he yelled “Fore!” to his caddy, Ward.

LOL...was his partner Ben Dover?

Oh, like on an incorrectly delivered envelope, as in Forward...

That's the instruction that he's going to give to the Postal Service so that mail sent to him addressed to the White House will be sent to Chicago after January 20th.

Rudy pointed out, "Change is not a destination, just as hope is not a strategy."

Forward is neither a destination, a strategy, and doesn't even convey a direction unless you realize which way you are facing.

Let my people go?

0b0z0 calls the charge to move forward to the leftist utopian promised land. The One sees himself as Moses leading the masses by force away from individual self determination and freedom under God to the false tranquility of socialism and assured slavery under the hand of the state.

0b0zo is a false prophet who seeks to reestablish Sodom and reconstruct the Tower of Babel.

Only Obama could make a 7 minute campaign video blaming Bush and name it “FORWARD”

But....but....but....according to Tom Hanks:

How about this slogan:

Obama 2012, the Dope has Mange

OR:
Obama: 2008: Hope and Change’
Obama 2012: Running on Empty (like our wallets and gas tanks)
