Sorry, but the previous one got deleted accidently. Here is the same post.
We all know that the election is just under three months away. With that in mind, let's look at some winning presidental campaign slogans, and campare them to Obama and McCain.
The 1800s had some of the most memorable ones, including 1840 William Henry Harrison's "Tippecanoe And Tyler Too", and in 1844 James K. Polk had "54'40'' Or Fight". Both of these slogans allude to each person's past success (Harrison) or future goals (Polk). Seeing as how Obama cannot use the first, he will have to use the latter. Barack Obama 2008: "Change, Yes We Can!". McCain can us, John McCain 2008: "Iran Without WMDs Or Fight!"
The early part of the 1900s had a couple of interesting ones, to say the least. Woodrow Wilson in 1916 slogan was "He Kept Us Out Of War". 1920 had Warren G. Harding campaigning "Return To Normalcy". Looking at these two, one lied, and one somewhat succeeded. Obama can use a combination, Barack Obama 2008: "Change, With Some Normalcy!" McCain can use, John McCain 2008: "He'll Bring Us Into Iran, Then Maybe Russia, Then A Return To Iraq".
The middle and latter part of the 1900s became interesting. Jimmy Carter's slogans of 1976 read "Not Just Peanuts" and "A Leader, For A Change". Ronald Reagan had a slogans that read "Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?"(1980) and "It's Morning Again In America"(1984). "Not Just Peanuts" fits Obama perfectly since he has done nothing but be a one term, actually half a term, Senator, just like how Carter did nothing but farm peanuts (humor people). Plus Obama can't promise change Carter already did, and we all know how that worked out, "Are You Better Off Than You Were Four Years Ago?". Obama can't use "It's Morning Again America" because when Obama wants to increase taxes, the economy will hurt even more. So, here's the third one for Obama; Barack Obama 2008: "Where Were You Without Change Four Years Ago, America?". And the third one for McCain, John McCain 2008: "Not Just Another Bush"
