OK...

President Obama ran on a platform of Hope and Change in his last run for president...

Will he still be using Hope and Change this time? Or has he changed his catch phrase and if so what is it now?

everyone uses hope and change when things are bad- democrats (2008), tea party nuts (2010) and republicans (2010, 2012).  they just word it differently.  and obama did a better job of selling it.

Still wondering what is the Obama campaign slogan for the up coming election.

Surely there is at least one democrat here that knows something...

and so is romney... so %1 wins either way...

I think clubdirt put it correctly...

the generic slogan of the opposition is "change and progress"... for the people currently power the generic slogan is " opposing change and progress"...

democrats are better salesmen and their base is charmed by "change and progress" talk...  So it has been funny to watch the teaparty try to play that role with their marches on washington and RV tours....

republicans are better at being against progress and change... so to have obama in this position is different then 2008... I think that Obama running on what he has done or is doing will not work as well as what he has not done or is doing...

We are not in iraq... probably the biggest issue for voters in 2008...

We are not dumping large amounts money, lives and resource towards the war on terror in the name of getting bin ladin but never catching him...  We are not living in the culture of the terror alert color setting the pulse of the nation...

Obama might try to make himself look like the savior of the economy, auto industry, healthcare etc... running to the rescue with bailouts and attention...

but rand to answer your question very simply... the campaign slogan for obama will be "4 more years"...  its about and honest and straight forward as can be...

So for the GOP to make fun of "hope and change" since 2008 and a basic negative association with it was probably not a good idea because that is what they are selling in 2012... It could be said that the tea party momentum came from the "change and progress" sentiment as it was simply about changing who ever was in office regardless of party...   well... that and other strong emotional themes

dl,

Good answer... Appreciate you elaborating on your view point.

I get the feeling we will be on opposite sides of the vote in November but there is still a lot of time till the vote.

Again...

He doesn't need a slogan this time.  The election has already been won.

If he did, could steal anything the GOP says and use that as a slogan.

from what I have seen so far, his posts are usually well thought out, well presented, well researched, and often funny and sarcastic

"FAIR SHARE"

He wants to push divison and envy over any type of unity

rich vs poor

white vs black

men vs women

gay vs straight

legal vs illegal

etc, etc so on and so forth

It should be called "DIVIDE AND CONQUER"
