Ten Rejected Obama Campaign Slogans


It wasn't long after the Obama campaign revealed "Forward" as its new reelection slogan this morning that it was accused of stealing from, or perhaps synergizing with, liberal cable-news network MSNBC, whose motto has been "Lean Forward" since October 2010. However, top sources within the Obama campaign* tell Daily Intel that before settling on "Forward," they debated borrowing even more directly from other famous slogans. Among the early options the campaign considered: 

  • You’re in good hands with Obama
  • Like a good neighbor, Obama is there
  • Got health insurance? 
  • He's g-r-r-r-e-a-t!
  • It's not TV, it's BHO
  • You've come a long way, America
  • O-B-A-M-A spells relief. 
  • Just do it
  • Between love and madness lies ... Obama
  • Only Obama can prevent forest fires
  • Mama mia, thatsa spicy Obama!

Admittedly, some of them didn't make a lot of sense.
