  •  following on the longer 'Foward" ad... (23+ / 0-)

    this cut is even better than the one I envisioned after seeing the full forward piece  :)  

    One of the things I came to like about the last Obama campaign was their ability to do 'Smart messaging" that remained positive even though the underlying effect was cutthroat.  that came to be known as his 'float like a butterfly" ability and or his prowess at playing 11th dimensional chess :)

    I am very happy to see that the team that "politely"destroyed the republicans in 08 seem to be back at work for Obama's re-election  :)

    I truly TRULY would love love love to know who came up with FORWARD...  such a simple and obvious word and one that has absolutely NO GOOD COMEBACK for the other side :)  

    what can romney's people do... run ads against going forward? say we didnt go forward? even ifthey say we need to go forward on a different path they are agreeing (by default) that Obama has moved America forward and the opposite of forward is BUSH ...  forward is such a brilliant choice of an early theme and exactly what Obama needs (for now) to energize an entire NEW class of young voters to GOTV (so important in 08) and remind recent 'graduates' of why THEY were crazy in love with Obama 4 years ago and how it is better for their futures if they help America to keep moving forward etc etc etc blah blah blah  .... I really like the choice of FORWARD and it makes me smile to think that.. with all Mitts money and his ruthless media team it was OBAMA's people who thought of it :)

      young people is an emphasis on the fact that it is their future we are voting on.  What kind of a country do they want to live in?  Then lay out the choice and ask them to choose which they want for themselves and their families.  Make it personal.  They are the ones who will be most effected long term by the course we will take based on the outcome of this election.

      Having volunteered in Obama HQ in 2008 and 2012, and reading and watching, it seems to me these guys believe in planning and they believe in sweating the details.  They do not leave much to chance.

      I can remember in 2007 during the primary fight many people on the nets were asking where Obama's fire was.  They wanted to hear more of his speechcraft and policy positioning.  His campaign was just keeping the ammo dry though and they knew the importance of timing the messaging.  

      I hope the messaging helps the down ticket contests.
