Off Topic and Political to boot: "Organize Against Change"

After this week's news of the death of OBL, all eyes are watching the President's approval ratings. Now might be the perfect time to test the waters for new campaign slogans for the President since they are already gearing up for the next Presidential election. Who can forget those sound bites from the last election that won the American public's hearts.

Over at Afriprov.org I found this list of some of the common phrases used by a certain current incumbent during his first election campaign.

1. "Yes We Can."
2. “Change” versus “More of the Same.”
3. "Vote for Change."
4. "Change We Can Believe In."
5. "Our Time for Change."
6. "It's about Time. It's about Change."
7. "Stand for Change."
8. "Organize for Change."
9. “We are the change we’ve been looking for. Change can’t happen without you.”
10. "I’m asking you to believe. Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington . I'm asking you to believe in yours."
11. "A leader who can deliver change."
12. "Change in America doesn't start from the top down. It starts from the bottom up."

He just can't use those anymore.

Now that he has announced that he will run for re-election, I was wondering if there is any kind of positive spin he can put on the old "Change" line.

As an unofficial, unpaid adviser, I worked up a few sound bites for him to try out while his popularity is on its expected upswing.

How about,
1. "Eventually We Can."
2. “More of the Same” versus “Change.”
3. "Don't Vote for Change."
4. "The Same We Can Believe In."
5. "Our Time for More of the Same."
6. "It's about Time; Just Give Me a Little More of It."
7. "Stand Still For a Change."
8. "Organize Against Change."
9. “We are the change we’d been looking for, but change doesn't happen overnight.”
10. "I’m asking you to believe. Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington, but because I never really had that ability."
11. "A leader who won't change."
12. "Change in America doesn't start from the top down. It starts from the bottom up. So go change yourself!"

And finally...

13. We got OBL! How's That For a Change!"
See if you can come up with a few of your own.

  1. Change is good, as long as it's not in the Oval Office.
