  1. Obama Borrows New Campaign Slogan From MSNBC


    President Barack Obama's reelection campaign is out with a new slogan today — "Forward." — as part of a seven minute video highlighting the president's accomplishments in his first term.

    The message is reminiscent of the MSNBC slogan "Lean Forward," and is intended to provide a more optimistic message to a campaign so far defined by "we're better than the other guy."

    The video features a listing of Obama's legislative achievements, obstructionist Republicans, and, of course, the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

    According to the Obama campaign, the video will be played at President Obama's first campaign rallies on Saturday.

    Republicans are attempting to co-opt the slogan on social media, with RNC Press Secretary Kirsten Kukowski sending out nine bullet points, including: "Under Obama's budget, Americans can look #FORWARD to $1.9 trillion in higher taxes."

    Referencing the Fox slogan "Fair and Balanced," MSNBC Morning Joe anchor Joe Scarborough quipped this morning: "So is Mitt Romney's slogan going to be 'Balanced'? ... They're taking MSNBC's slogan."

    Forward as in General Custer saying "Forward Charge". And we know how that ended.
  4. If they take seven minutes to list Obama's accomplishments as president, someone must be speaking v e r y s l o w l y.

    You could list his life's accomplishments in 7 minutes and have enough time left over to expalin Jack Hershey's trading method.
  5. Definitely a collaboration with msnbc. Same style of advertising, and it will have an impact. This will play very well in Peoria.:)

    Peoria: population 115,000. Or are you still making the absurd claim that Peoria is a "principle city"? LOL

    "Lean Forward" is that the preceding position for "Bend Over"
