The Obama re-election campaign has decided on a new slogan for the 2012 Presidential election. It is one simple word… Forward. The campaign has also put out a 7 minute video emphasizing some of the challenges the country faced when President Obama took office, as well as some of the policies the administration implemented to correct the mess left by the Bush administration.
Some of the policies highlighted in the video are: The stimulus, the auto bailout, the health care law, ending combat operations in Iraq and winding down the war in Afghanistan, and the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden.
If President Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney are at opposite ends of the political spectrum, one can safely assume that Mitt Romney’s slogan would be… Backwards… and one would be correct to make that assumption.
