Obama Moves on from Hope and Change

President Obama “We can change” still rings in our ears from his 2008 campaign, where he bowled people over with brilliant oratory skills. However, four years down the line, when he faces another election, he is staying away from words like Hope and Change in his re-election campaign.

Sources say “Winning The Future” “Greater Together” “We Don’t Quit” are the short-list from which he may pick one. As of now the posters just say ‘Obama 2012’. “Winning The Future” was used extensively to promote the budget, while “Greater Together” was used to reach out to the youth. This is quite a marked change from the previous election, where Obama was the outsider and wanted to incite change and make things happen. Today he is the incumbent and people today are too cynical to accept change and hope. However, he does refer to these words at various fundraisers and public meetings to refer to change that he has brought about during his tenure.
