Obama struggles with campaign theme


The Obama "Theme" in 2008 was “Change You Can Believe In”.
(and boy did we get it)

The 2012 campaign doesn't really have a clear "Theme" as of yet.

They have tried a few "slogans", but those don't seem to be driving the pistons too well.
(maybe the batteries are dead)



President Obama’s campaign has yet to find a clear 2012 reelection slogan that carries the heft of 2008’s “Change You Can Believe In,” raising worries among his supporters — and hopes among Republicans — that he is having trouble articulating a concise case for a second term.

“It’s a problem because in 2008 he had an absolute winner of a slogan in ‘hope and change,’ ” said Tobe Berkovitz, a Boston University professor and expert on political advertising. “It said it all, and the things that he has tried so far this time haven’t worked in the same way.”

Berkovitz is not sure that the Obama team can conjure something so effective this time around, and suggests the campaign is “struggling to find a core message.”



One "appropriate" slogan cited in the story is “Obama Isn’t Working"
(double pun intended !)


What "Theme" does Obama need right NOW ?

Please help him think of some !!

How about: We promise to use lube this time?

That might draw a few dems back.

Here you go.

"I will create more jobs building drones and monitoring those drones as they patrol every street corner. We will create even more jobs as we build "lamp posts" that can hear your every utterance and monitors for those. We will have even more monitors for the new camera systems that will check your chip and confirm that it matches the picture in our database. Then we will create a new civilian national security force to keep you safe. They will be in constant, direct contact with all of the various monitors. We will even train your children for these jobs so that you don't need to pay for daycare. There will be real change this time, believe in that."

Semi-sarcasm.

No i don't "support" Obama. At least not politically. We all support him thru taxes however !!

Do you think a major "change" took place after Obama took office ?

I do.

He allowed the spending to top out the credit. The result was a credit downgrade.

The White House numbers are pretty clear.

Office of management and Budget

Scroll to page 22 of the pdf to see the figures.

People forget his campaign platform.

Balance the budget.

Review every spending purchase line by line.

100% transparency.

Well he was never sworn in, so he isnt liable for anything.

We saw the swearing in transparency on day one and knew we were getting dry boned on everything else.


Liar in chief.

That shows the rather sad state of the current state of the union where they are having problems coming up with a slogan that the masses will vote for him on.

He can't run a country,a campaign and he has ran out of lies.

Obama, "Vote the best,forget the mess".
