Well, the polls are in and it looks like Pres. Obama’s Democrats may face steep losses during the 2010 November elections. In 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama ran upon what proved to be a very successful presidential campaign slogan that promised, “change”. However, it appears that two years later “change” is the last thing the incumbent Democrats want to hear about. Which places the president in quite the conundrum as he must soon decide on a slogan for his 2012 presidential campaign. White House staffers and political aides have come up with a list of possible new slogans which are more friendly for incumbents, ten of them are listed below.
1. “Magic You Can Believe In.” The slogan would be the centerpiece of a presidential campaign in which Pres. Obama promised that he would seek out and use the powers of wizards and witches everywhere in order to save the United States economy and win the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
2. “Too Much Change is Bad.” This slogan sort of gets at the heart of the matter in terms of dampening down the public’s desire for change after you’ve been elected.
3. ” Still Not as Bad as Bush.” This slogan aims to take advantage of lingering hostility over the general incompetence of George Bush’s presidency.
4. “Help me and Joe Biden stay employed.” This quote suggested by VP Joe Biden, will likely not become the official 2012 Democratic presidential campaign slogan.
5. “Fighting the zombies together.” This campaign slogan tries to rally the electorate with Pres. Obama as the administration cites the ongoing epidemic of Zombie Virus Type A which swept the country half a year ago. Nonetheless, as most people have forgotten the zombie invasion of 2009 the slogan is probably not timely enough.
6. “Whoops, I gave 780 billion to Greedy Bankers.” This slogan tries to explain why the Obama administration gave away huge sums of money to Wall Street only is to have greedy bankers bite the hand that fed them.
7. “Let’s build a New America from the Ashes.” This slogan is based upon a post-apocalyptic theme should a nuclear holocaust occur between now and the next presidential election.
8. “Fighting the Great Depression 2.0 Together.” This post-partisan approaches looks at how President Obama plans to work with Republicans to end the worst economic recession since the Great Depression.
9. “Meat Eaters Unite!” This slogan attempts to rally meat eaters on the side of Democrats, though many vegetarians and even nutritionists have said that the slogan sends the wrong message.
10. “The Audacity of Asking for a Second Term”. This strategy will use self-depreciating humor to show why President Obama did a good job and why he should have a second term.
