Wait. What? Is it 2008 all over again? Hardly. #HopeAndChange came back with a flourish today, but not in the way President Barack Obama used the slogan during his first campaign to slink into the White House.
This time Republican challenger Mitt Romney is asking where hope and change went, attacking Obama’s negative campaign ads with one of his own.
Naturally, conservatives on Twitter hammered home the message that Obama’s concept of hope and change is all but dead.
Hope & Change = Obama hopes Americans won't associate the outsourcing of jobs by his wifes designer Ralph Lauren on Olympic uniforms.

Hope and Change IS NOT deliberately misleading people and acting disdainful because you're asked to explain yourself

Hope & Change? Re-electing Obama is like backing up the Titanic and Hitting the Iceberg Again…

The new American Dream is hoping you get welfare and food stamps and can keep the change while someone else pays for it.
Hope & Change means increasing the national debt by trillions and putting it on the tab of the next generation.

Hope & Change = the government putting my grandkids $50,000 in debt before they're even born so people who don't need welfare can get it.

Who needs amnesty for illegal aliens when the growth in disability rolls outpaces the number of people getting jobs?

Whatever happened to hope and change? It turned into a dope who can do nothing but liberally pass out blame.
