The Obama slogan for 2012 is in and it's "Forward." The left has always been enamored of "Forwardism" or "Progressivism" which mean much the same thing. Before MSNBC had "Lean Forward," Mao had the Great Leap Forward, which killed some 40 million people, far more people than MSNBC can ever dream of tuning in to their programs.
When Lenin wanted to launch his own newspaper, he called it, "Vperod" or "Forward." The name has popped up on the mastheads of left-wing newspapers across the world. It's "Vorwarts" in Germany, "Voorwarts" in the Netherlands and "Ila al-Amam" in the Arab world. Back in New York it's "The Forward."
There are any number of left-wing political parties who have named themselves "Forward", including the Forward Communist Party of India, Kadima, the left-wing opposition party in Israel, and Vperod, a Russian political party that split off from the Socialist Resistance on account of the latter not being radical enough.
Picking “Forward” as his campaign slogan puts Obama in good company with Lenin and Mao, and it sounds positive until you stop and realize that it’s meant more as an order than a suggestion. There’s a reason leftist newspapers with that name add an exclamation mark at the end of it. It’s not a proposal, it’s a command. Lean forward, march forward, live forward and then die forward. We’ve burned the bridges, run up the deficit and trashed the economy so there’s no going back.
An old Soviet era joke told the story of the wife of a Communist leader who upon hearing that her husband had developed a progressive paralysis, clapped her hands and exclaimed that at least it was progressive. That is the underlying message of “Forward” to voters: the country may be paralyzed, but at least it’s a progressive paralysis which leaves us unable to move our heads and stop leaning forward.

If they were science fiction writers their stuff would have the same ideas and plots as the pulps from the '30's.

DOWNWARD point the shovels, in our glorious new, shovel ready careers!
DOWNWARD with the bourgeois notions of the superiority of an AAA credit rating.
DOWNWARD with the purchasing power of that capitalist tool, the AmeriKKKan dollar.
DOWNWARD with any Wikipedia articles that represent Dear Leader. (--PS:Another bonafide of my 99% status is that I am unskilled to edit Rich Text.the Ostika logo should replace the letter O in D-O-W-N-W-A-R-D

Capitalism is failing. Be sure to keep us posted on the people's media, Facebook's Billion Dollar IPO while wearing your $200 Ray-Bans.
I wonder how Castro feels about "Forward"? We got smart too late? Will Americans now be swimming to the people's paradise of Cuba to escape the misery of the United States?
Perhaps this could boost sales of what is, in effect, the Cube's "Little Red Book."

Frankly, Obama should take Karl Rove's advice for Romney

And select Van Jones or Tavis Smiley as the next VP. There is no sense in keeping Biden after causing Dear Leader to "flip flop" on the gay marriage issue prior to the election. Frankly, flip flopping should suit double agent president flexibility.

Back in the topic. Avanti is Italian for Forward, and a main newspaper for the korrekt cause. A curious twist, Comrade Mussolini has been editor for some time http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avanti!_(Italian_newspaper)
The newspaper took its name from the German comrades. In German it is Vorwärts, and reads more or less like Four-warts.

Red SquareWe don't want it FORWARD! We want it BACK!
Back where? Back to those evil and oppressive 1950's? Didn't we also want it "back" when our prole Cindi Sheehan was screaming about the wars that are still going on? Where did we want it back to then? 1969? So if Forward is 1968 and Back is 1950 couldn't we reach a compromise with the wingnuts for the 1970's? I sure do miss my Disco Ball.

Now everything is better.
When men have come to the edge of a precipice, it is the lover of life who has the spirit to leap backwards, and only the pessimist who continues to believe in progress.
