Obama campaign unveils new slogan: "Forward"
U.S. — President Obama’s campaign has announced its new slogan: "Forward".
Along with the slogan, a seven-minute campaign video was released defending the President's first term, and highlighting the major legislation that passed since his inauguration.
The video includes the auto bailouts, the Affordable Care Act, and the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" as examples of President Obama's most important changes during his term.
In the video, his campaign argues that most of the economic downturn had taken place before Obama's inauguration in January 2009, claiming that 4.4 million jobs had already been lost by the time former President George W. Bush left office.
It also hints that President Obama may have achieved more, if not for a large amount of Republican opposition. Conservative talk-show hosts and tea party rallies are shown as examples of what the campaign is presenting as a road block to progress.
In addition to his legislation, the video also praises the death of Osama bin Laden during President Obama's watch.
The new campaign video is expected to be presented this weekend at the President's rallies in Ohio and Virginia.
