Playing off of Obama's 2008 "Hope and Change" slogan, the RNC announced Thursday a new anti-Obama slogan, "Hype and Blame," that they will begin using as part of the campaign. Soon, they say, you can buy "Hype and Blame" bumper stickers.
“Obama has no record to run on so he’s out on the trail resorting to the same tactics he campaigned against in 2008,” Kirsten Kukowski, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, said Wednesday night. “He has a litany of broken promises so what does he do? Lay blame, make excuses, run on gimmicks and engage in divisive politics. Four years later we know the candidate of ‘Hope and Change’ is now ‘Hype and Blame.’”
The slogan hits at exactly what Republicans want voters to think: that President Obama failed to deliver on his campaign promises; the Obama campaign wants voters to view the last four years as improvement during trying times and in the face of GOP obstructionism.
