Obama's Three Word Slogan for 2012: 'Our Vision for the Future'
9:41 AM, Oct 4, 2011 • By DANIEL HALPER
In an interview yesterday with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, President Obama was asked, "If hope and change define the 2008 campaign, what two words are going to make--are going to define 2012?"
Empty campaign slogans of "hope" and "change" are so 2008. Welcome in the age of "our vision for the future!"
It's understandable enough that President Obama can't quite boil down the problems America faces to two words--or three or four. But it would seem that the future is present. The Democratic policies that Obama is intending to run on are what's been in place. And though he's likely to blame the Republicans for preventing him from being bold and courageous and saving the American people as he intended to do, the 2012 election will come down to a single question: Are you better off now than you were four years ago?
Well, Obama also answered that one in his interview with Stephanopoulos!
“I don’t think that they’re better off than they were four years ago,” Obama said. “They’re not better off than they were before Lehman’s collapse, before the financial crisis, before this extraordinary recession that we’re going through. I think that what we’ve seen is that we’ve been able to make steady progress to stabilize the economy but the unemployment rate is still way too high.”
