President Barack Obama has said at fundraisers that the coming general election will not be “as sexy” as the last one. The president’s famous springboard 2004 DNC address began the budding romance, his effective campaign served as his on-bended-knee proposal and his 2008 victory over Sen. John McCain led us all down the aisle. But with things not quite as sexy as they once were, the president is hoping that campaign-style couples therapy and easy promises will suffice, rather than a quickie divorce.
Now that Pres. Obama is facing the harsh reality of governing from within, 2008′s “Hope and Change” is obviously unusable. Reuters reports that the Obama 2012 campaign is looking for a new slogan, and it’s been trying out various phrases while advisers wait to see who his opponent will be. “Winning The Future,” “Greater Together,” and “We Don’t Quit” have all been road-tested, but those are weak sauce.
