Is Obama copying the Labour Party?!

Sorry for the double Obama posing, but couldn't resist this. Tony Blair once said that he deliberately didn't campaign on a slogan of "change! in 1997, saying it was the "most vacuous sloganin politics" because it didn't mean anything. "Change to what, exactly?" Well obviously Obama had campaigned on the slogan of change, but it seems the President is following New Labour slogans more closely.

You may have noticed in the Democtatic National Convention some familiar phrases. "A lot done, a lot more to do" which was the Labour slogan in 2001, and even more brazenly, "Forwards, not back" which was the 2005 re-election theme!

I approve this message!
