A lot of pundits and voters have been wondering: What exactly is different between Obama’s 2012 campaign promises and his original 2008 campaign promises? Because to the casual observer, he seems to be running for president as a challenger, as if this was his first time.
A few hours ago I ran across a campaign sign in front of a house in Pacific Grove, California which seemed to sum up Obama’s promised second-term agenda:
Re-use, recycle, rehash!
(In case it’s not clear, this efficiency-minded Obama voter simply took an “Obama ’08” sign and scribbled out part of the “0” and part of the “8” to make it look vaguely like “Obama ’12.”) A perfect metaphor for Obama’s idea-free campaign!
