etc. - a little of this, a little of that - by Oliver Del Signore



Could the signals from the Obama campaign be any more clear?

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Barack Hussein Obama and his campaign advisers clearly thought long and hard about a slogan for the 2012 re-election campaign. What could they possibly come up with to replace the “Hope and Change” that was so effective in blinding so many Americans to his true nature back in 2008?

Apparently unable to come up with something new, they decided to go with a classic, one people like them used before, but it was such a long time ago, maybe they Hoped Americans really have Changed and wouldn’t notice where they got it from.

 

Now, check out this seventy-four second video, with a catchy tune from the middle of the last century, and pay attention to the translation. Vorwärts!

 

How fitting, how telling, that these modern-day socialists should decide on a single word, one with a clear, long-time association to their true political views.

They are so clearly announcing exactly who and what they are, what they believe, and what they intend for America should we give them the chance in November.

Or they’re really, really, REALLY stupid.

Which do you think it is?

And what do you think of Our Dear Leader’s new slogan?

    Ok now i am officially scared.

  2. Stryder Says:

    Normally, I like your ideas even if I disagree with some of them but this one is pushing it a little. Just because Hitler said it doesn’t make it evil, you know, kinda like the word gay. If I refer to myself as gay, I mean I’m happy. Unfortunately, it now means something else if I capitalise that word.
    Forward is actually a good word, at least better than “Progress You Can Believe In.”

  3. Kentucky Kid Says:

    Yeah, but still . . .

    “Barry, Barry, uber alles . . .”

    Cringeworthy, sez me.

    ;-)

  4. Oliver Says:

    Just because Hitler said it doesn’t make it evil

    Hitler didn’t actually say it, of course. It was his PR people who undoubtedly came up with the song and the slogans, etc., just as it was Our Dear Leader’s PR machine that decided to reuse it. But he had to sign off on it.

    Can you imagine Ron Paul’s or even Mitt Romney’s people thinking that dredging up a “progressive” mantra from the German socialist movement was a good idea?

    If the last three years have taught us anything, it is that Obama and his henchmen are basically clueless. Their heads are filled with socialist, utopian dreams and nothing from the real world appears to penetrate.

    This slogan is just more evidence.

  5. Holly R Says:

    They aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. Prepare now, while you still can!

  6. Yvette Says:

    Neither side is willing to work with the other. They all need to be fired, both sides – no severance, no retirement, nothing. when the republicans stated that they would not work with the president, they should have been fired for refusing to do the job they had been hired for – same for the dems.
    Get rid of them all.

  7. Melissa Says:

    Honestly, I wouldn’t call them stupid. They are pretty blatant about who they are and what they stand for. It’s the American people who could likely wear the “stupid” label. Another four years of this… I can’t imagine where our country will be at the end of it! Yikes!

  8. Cindy Booth Says:

    Obama has done nothing good for our country. We can not afford another term with Obama. His mission is to bring America down and so far he has done a good job. If you do not believe me, go back into history, if you can find it and read his writings and listen to his interviews. He is one scary man.

  9. Leslie Says:

    I am horrified! You are absolutely right! What is truly frightening is that they no longer are trying to hide their true colors. They are confident enough to be open about it now. What does that say about the path we are on?

  10. George Says:

    You are certifiably nuts. And if you play the White album backwards it really does say “Paul is dead”.

  11. Oliver Says:

    You are certifiably nuts. And if you play the White album backwards it really does say “Paul is dead”.

    My children would agree with your first contention. As to the second, I’ll take your word for it.

    In 2008, I predicted Obama would lead the nation to ruin and some said I was nuts. None of them are laughing now, even though it is all George Bush’s fault.

  12. Stryder Says:

    I do agree with Yvette, get rid of them all. Just once I’d like to see “None of the Above” on a ballot. I’ve always voted so that I can see my votes in the election returns as there was only me and one other voting Libertarian in my area.

  13. charles scamman Says:

    gee and I thought he was more the Marxist rather than the fascist. Either way he’ll waltz in for a second term if the Republicans put up the flip-flop man against him. Ron Paul is the only real choice but the media has shut him off from all publicity and ‘the machine’ just keeps shredding his ballots.
    just an opinion

  14. Leonard Barnes Says:

    When living in a Representative Republic with free elections we have the power to fire elected officials every 2, 4 or 6 years depending on the office. In our country it seems that any incumbent politician is protected somehow from ever being defeated by election. You have the power to select your own leaders, if we are unhappy with the slate of possible leaders being chosen perhaps it can be said it is our own fault. Arm yourself with information, ask questions and demand representation of your desires. If you are unhappy, don’t send the jerk back to do more damage. If they can’t get it done in one term, what makes you think they can do it in 10 or 20 terms? Career politicians won’t or can’t represent you unless he/she is afraid of losing their job.

  15. glenn Says:

    That really is a low blow, at least Hitler helped turn Germanys economy around, build up national pride, and took a shattered country and turned it into a world power. Obama can’t seem to get that part right.
    Hope he doesnt learn how to run an oven either

  16. Kentucky Kid Says:

    If the answer is to vote the dummies out of office, and I believe it should be, we all have to remember that in order to accomplish this it is necessary to have alternative candidates on the ballot . . . and this is where we tend to fail.

    At this point, if Romney is in fact the Republican candidate, and we don’t like him for whatever reason, we need another viable candidate on the ballot. If, for instance, Ron Paul ran as an independent would enough of us vote for him to elect him? History seems to indicate “no”.

    And thus we have the government we deserve. We have allowed it to become a “two-party” system with very little real difference between the two . . . and the “big money” can control this system to its own ends.

    I am not encouraged.
