I guess, "We built that" didn't go so well. So the DNC is "re-packaging".


The Obama campaign is completely tone-deaf. The DNC will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, and guess what mantra is featured in Charlotte’s banners all over the city during the convention?

“We make it possible.”

The last time a four-word phrase became the Obama mantra it didn’t do so well: You Didn’t Build That.

Now, that insult to the independent-minded American has been given new impetus by telling people that “WE” make it possible. YOU need OUR help.

Thank goodness we have the government making all our successes possible.


Does this administration have any humility?

Breitbarts website doesn't even try to pretend it is unbiased. I like the comment sections the most.

Granting that Breitbart is biased, what do you make of the slogan, "We make it possible?" Is it doubling down on an unpopular idea? Honestly, I wish our country was in such shape that they could have said "We made it possible," but that wouldn't work very well in our current situation, would it?.

Maybe they're finally taking credit/blame.

I am not sure what it means. My first thought was that is was a spin-off of Obama's statement "We succeed because we do things together." But then, just for throughness, I did some searching. Apparently the mayor say it is the towns motto.


With 770,000 residents, Charlotte is the Tar Heel State's most populous city. The Charlotte/Mecklenburg County metropolitan area has 1.8 million people, half a million of whom arrived in the past decade. It is the fastest growing urbanized area in the U.S. The mayor says its motto is: "We make it possible."


So I am not sure where it came from.

Sloganeering is so trite.

I'd like to spend one day in shoes of a mind so simple it is swayed by signs on the roadside, slogans on television or plebe rousing convention speeches just to see what it's like.

It's their CHOICE is what is so irritating! The utter arrogance is astounding! Now if the economy was good, fewer people on food stamps, low unemployment, then I might understand.

Republicans definitely share the blame. The question is not who created the problem, it's who can fix it. Has Obama shown he has any chance to fix it? My answer is no. Maybe Romney can, maybe he can't. I'll take a maybe yes over a definitely no.

Some unspun facts can be found here.

It's not the administration. It's the Mayor of Charlotte.


With 770,000 residents, Charlotte is the Tar Heel State's most populous city. The Charlotte/Mecklenburg County metropolitan area has 1.8 million people, half a million of whom arrived in the past decade. It is the fastest growing urbanized area in the U.S. The mayor says its motto is: "We make it possible."

"People are coming here because they see opportunity, they see a community in which you can get involved and really just have a great quality of life," Foxx said. "It's centrally located in the state, a couple hours away from the mountains, a couple hours from the beach. It's just a place that people come and it really feels like home."
