Aw, man. We were really hoping Team Obama would go with his supporters’ suggestion of “foward” for a new campaign slogan.

But no. The president is putting all his eggs in the exclamation point basket as the campaign enters the final stretch.

This is what desperation looks like: unfulfilled hope and punctuation change.

Possible prediction for next week:

  • liz

    GOODBYE!!!!!!!!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Clement/1169952473 John Clement

      never in my life have I typed “LOL” but that did make me laugh out loud.

  • Tony0920

    Sounds more like he’s directing a train of covered-wagons that way. And, ironically the wagons are circling.

    Adding an exclamation point makes it seem more like an order you would give an animal – FORWARD! is akin to MUSH! ‘Shaddup’, sit down, and vote the way you’re told. That’s how the Obama campaign treats their supporters after 4 years of broken promises and failed policies with no no ideas for the next 4.

    Hey – What else would one expect from a Nobel Peace Prize recipient with a secret kill list?

    I think in a couple weeks we’re going to look back on this as the moment Obama won the election!

    • Pete Futz

      NOT!

  • Steve_J

    Yeah that’s the ticket, an exclamation point.

  • Scott

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I feel so freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Exclamation points rock. Should’ve thought of this a looonnggg time ago!
    ROMNEY/RYAN 2012 !

  • Danny Wheeler

    Next step–using l33tspeak!

    • TexSizzle

      Shouldn’t that be [email protected], or something like that?

  • Rob Stevely

    To win over women voters he should have used a period.

    • Warren_Women

      That’s the plan for when there is only a week left.

  • Jim Wafwot

    Given his propensity to blame Bush, attack Bain, and promote his failed first term policies as his vision for a second term, maybe Obama should have opted for the question mark. “FORWARD?”

    • Jack Deth

      I was thinking more Alfred E. Newman, Jim.

      “What… Me, Worry?”

      Might not work… Too many letters.

  • Michelle

    I remember when Thelma and Louise went Forward! That didn’t end so well either.

    • lainer51

      lol

  • Adnilhoom

    The Forward slogan has always seemed odd. It’s kinda weak and reminiscent to me of old movies where the outnumbered soldiers were ordered by their leader to obvious destruction.

  • http://pinterest.com/j0s1395/ Josephine (D)

    Wasn’t “Forward” a Communist slogan at one point?

    • sb36695

      It’s all he knows.

    • CapeLady

      Historically, it has been used by Mussolini and others, yes. Apparently Obama either thought we were too stupid to notice, or he is not trying to hide it any longer.

    • cityflat

      clever

  • Lyle E Long

    I just got a call from Mr. Exclamation Point and he does not approve this message,

  • MoxieLouise

    I’m so excited!!! Now I know what was missing in my life!!! Exclamation marks!!! I’m changing my vote!!! PSYCH!!!!!!

  • Ms.Bohmont

    It’s just that before, it was a statement. Now it’s a demand…and all the little Obamabots will march because He said so.

  • nc

    I hate exclamation points.

    • Mary Ann Miller

      Me, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Guest

        Elaine Benes (Seinfeld) loved them…remember that episode where she and her current boyfriend got into an argument because he didn’t put an exclamation point on the telephone message about her friend having a baby? She liked the Kennedy family too 😉

  • MoxieLouise

    Next step: extreme italics, and then have his graphic artist Julia draw little wheels on it like an 18-wheeler. “FORWARD! OFF THE FISCAL CLIFF!!”

  • LibertysSon

    Like everything Obama does, It is only talk, It is symbolism over reality and truth. There is no there there. The handwriting is on the wall. His time is over!

  • louisiana_mom

    Obama: “Can you hear me now?” LMAO!!!

  • Love of Country

    FORWARD!

    (and we know where you live)

  • orringtonmom (D)

    yawn. er, i mean… yawn!

  • I.M.Hughman

    Really? Team Obama really thinks we are so very stupid! Sorry Team Obama, you can’t convince me with your punctuation!

  • I.M.Hughman

    Shake your Big Booty! Mr. Obama.

  • Love of Country

    Like the rest of us, President-Elect Romney is somewhat amused by Dinglebarry’s small ball desperation.

  • Jack Deth

    I wonder which Special Interest Group is going to be stuck with the tab for all those new exclamation points?

    The next few days are going to be fun to follow here. Obama’s running out of particular groups and niches within ‘The Stupid Vote’ demographics to pander to.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.mcmicken Brett McMicken

    personally, i’m all for giving the party of D a resounding F!

  • MoxieLouise

    Columns! More columns! Even bigger than last time! This time we’ll have a real arena with real Christians and real lions! I can be the emperor! It’ll be awesome!

  • TrueCenturian

    Note to self: Never vote for a smooth-talking hustler from Chicago with a questionable past and with no job history worth mentioning.

  • http://twitter.com/MoueLaMoue Moue La Moue (D)

    Obama, you ARE the weakest link. Goodbye!

  • stillinthe60s

    Country’s moving Forward by leaving Obama and his Telly behind!

  • F150

    That is like going from double dog dare straight to triple dog dare and skipping triple dare! They must really be desperate.

  • Doug_Piranha

    Oh, just be honest about it and change the slogan to DOWNWARD!

  • scrubjay

  • IslandLibertarian

    I’m For “Ward!”

    Not petulant Eddie Haskel types.

    Next week it will be RETREAT! after the IT’S BUSH’S FAULT smokescreen is deployed.

  • http://venturebrothers.wikia.com/wiki/Dr._Thaddeus_%22Rusty%22_Venture Wallythedog

    Maybe, he should change it to “Bonzi!”

  • Adela Wagner

    OH NOOOO NOT the dreaded exclamation point!!! That’s it, This changes EVERYTHING! No hope at all for the GOP now. How did they figure this out? That ALL they needed to do was to add that damn thing and now we will all be reduced to tears and faded Romney posters?

    Why not add umlauts while they’re at it? Nothing toughens up your image or says that you mean business like umlauts: FÖRWÄRD! (Jüst mÿ twö cënts.)

  • cityflat

    This guy is pathetic, no new ideas or a better vision for the country, same old same old or is it an indication of a faster way for the US to go over the cliff?

  • AnneCink

    Ditto that – “FORWARD?”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Clement/1169952473 John Clement

    obama, you have been voted off the island!!!!!!!

  • Terry_Jim

    By Wednesday, the slogan will be FORWARD! OR ELSE!, and the O-stika will have crossbones under it.

    When did the Obama campaign become a Seinfeld episode? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSKn8RlD7Is HEY OBAMA! YOUR CAPSLOCK IS ON!

  • Dude

    Next stop: “FORWARD, BITCHES!”

  • jbspry

    If he is savvy he will go for the Latino vote by putting an upside-down ! in front of his slogan.
    !Macchiavelli, bite my shorts!

  • Thin Ice

    Faster! To the point of no return to fiscal sanity! See that works also!

  • $10059668

    Correspondingly, I’ve changed my response to Obama’s lame slogan from “LOL” to “LOL!”
