Thumbs down Obama Re-election Campaign Slogan

Some super intelligent person came up with the Obama re-election campaign slogan:

Winning The Future

Translates to-

WTF



How appropriate...

Yeah, this would have been mildly amusing a year ago, when Sarah Palin had sarcastically made the reference several times on Faux News...

But seeing that's it's not a year ago, and realizing that it never actually was an Obama campaign slogan (it's actually the title of a book by Newt Gingrich - you knew that, right?), it seems kind of pathetic to bring it up now. But of course that's just par for this forum.

Yup he's done a bang-up job so far...

But that's right, I forgot - everything is Bush's fault

Just goes with the trend in this country where no one feels they are responsible for their own actions - it's always someone else's fault...

I didn't vote for him multiple times in the last election, and plan on a repeat this time thru

Thanks for identifying me as one of the few Obama supporters left in this country. Keep that in mind after you see the election results.

I agree, the alternatives are not any better. Gonna be a tough choice this go around - but I have already seen the present track record so I know that option is out.

So then we'll know who to blame for the continued downfall

In an incumbent situation, I try to base my decision on whether to re-elect giving equal weighting to not only what they have accomplished and the state of affairs under their watch, but also what prior issues they have allowed to continue/problems not solved & what they have NOT accomplished.

Following that route, I honestly couldn't vote for Obama for re-election even if I had voted for him the 1st time...

New choices don't seem to have any 'shining' attributes, but for my choice - I'm going to give someone else a try.

You are 100% correct, there are enough people on welfare, section 8 and other "programs" that will vote for obama that he will more then likely still win and everyone that runs there own business or works for a living will be able to pay for all of his voters lives as well as we will be faced with another 4 years of pain.

One of my biggest problems is the pervading attitude that the working Middle Class is somehow beholding to the 'less fortunate' to supply them with a better standard of living FREE on our dollar

I've had a job of one sort or another since I was 13 years old, bought all my own cars, houses, food, entertainment, insurance, paid for 6 yrs of college to get where I am now.

I realize there are people without my opportunities, but where is it written that it's MY job to fund their lives?


The very wealthy have yachts, multiple homes, private jets, multiple hi end cars - by the current way of thinking I am less fortunate than them and should receive some of those goodies for free - but lo, where's it at? I ain't seeing nuttin

Guess it only works one way?

I'm sure not going around constantly demanding that they subsidize a better standard of living for me - guess that's because I have ETHICS and would actually feel embarassed if I could not adequately provide for my family.

I couldn't give 2 shits less whether someone less fortunate than me gets a higher standard of living off my hard earned $$

Anyone that feels different is welcome to their opinion - but how about we have THOSE people foot the bill since they are so charitable, and leave me off the hook

Wow. Well, at least you are honest.... but what a sad statement that is.

Is it really? Then you don't mind working hard for your $$, just so you can give it away to someone that has no intention of EVER getting a job?

And by 'less fortunate' (you see I have that in quotes in my OP), I'm not talking about the people that REALLY need help, I'm talking about the low life, scumbags that know how to work the system, know that they don't have to get a job & pride themselves on doing so.

IDK about NY, but the welfare system in PA is corrupt down to the core, with a lot of known fraud going on - yet nothing is ever done? I'm quite sure that this is going on countrywide.

Why doesn't the freakin Gov't step in and take care of this - instead of worrying about what kind of light bulbs I'm using in my house (aka no more incandescent bulbs - we MUST all use fluorescent)


Another example is Catholic School - my kids went to Catholic school for all of their elementary grades - and I willingly PAID ~ $2100/yr/kid to send them there. Just about time for them to enter high school, it was determined that all those that couldn't afford to pay for Catholic school & have that benefit, were going to be able to attend for free - and my cost of tuition was going to double to cover it!

Needless to say, my kids went to Public High School after that, as I'm not footin someone else's free ride.

So I guess Public School is not good enough for these people? I went to Public School for 12 years and turned out just fine. It was mainly my wife's wishes to send them to the 'private' school.

I didn't always have it EZ either, had many years in the early days that were tough and $$ was tight - you learn to do without. Guess the difference is, I don't feel 'entitled' to live the way I do

For the record, I'm not just harpin' on the 'freebie list' I don't believe we should have bailed out all those fat cat banks & corporations either.

This country USED to be based on Capitalism - where anyone can make it big - and anyone call fall...

: an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market

Capitalism vs. Socialism:

Within a capitalist society people are free to choose how to utilize their money. They may save it, donate it to charity, or purchase products and services. For these reasons a capitalist society is described as containing a free market. The market is all those things that money can buy, and the people can act freely concerning whether and what they buy. Within a socialist society the means of production and distribution are either determined by all the people through a government, or else select individuals within government decide for the people what will be produced and in what quantity, as well as determine who is entitled to that which is produced

Let's be honest, when someone posts in a forum for the express purpose of stating how stupid it is to post in the forum, it's usually because they want to belittle the poster. As ridiculous as it sounds, there's been an active political forum here for years, as well as a stock market forum, and all sorts of off-topic forums. Nobody else (that I'm aware of) has taken the time to make a post like yours.

I'm well aware of the stigma surrounding BMW owners (amongst non-owners); we're either wealthy snobs, yuppies, or else we just have a need to project a "specialness" that proves we're materialistic. Frankly, I have no idea what that has to do with me, a middle-class, middle-aged, libertarian democrat who's just always loved cars.

Is that related to a vegan carnivore???

Not trying to pass judgement on whether it's good or bad to be either a vegan or a carnivore, whatever floats your boat, but I dont see how you can combine the two....
