Trending on Twitter: Obama’s #WeCantWait slogan backfires

posted at 4:05 pm on October 24, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Remember when President Barack Obama said many Americans just “can’t wait” for the next election, implying that Congress better pass his American Jobs Act instantly or face the wrath of the American people? Since then, the prez ingeniously decided to promote “We can’t wait” as a slogan. He wants to hear from those Americans who just can’t bear the thought of allowing another minute to pass without passage of the AJA! Obligingly, impatient people the nation over have taken to Twitter to express just what they can’t wait for … and it’s not the president’s jobs plan:

That’s only the smallest of samplings. The whole list contains countless gems of reminders of what really should be the president’s most pressing priorities, whether that’s regulatory rollback, the passage of the 15 jobs bills already passed by the House (what some are calling the #Forgotten15) or just the presidential assumption of a little responsibility for the dismal state of the economy as we speak. Basically, the folks sounding off on Twitter seem to think the president should be concerned with anything but pushing a purely political bill. Peruse the page at your pleasure and feel free to contribute to the list on Twitter or in the comments below.

Hey, this is so much fun that #WeCantWait to have a heyday with the president’s next iteration of squirrelly sloganeering!

Almost as successful as his Attach Watch fiasco. I think it is safe to declare that the battle for Twitter domination goes to the conservatives. Seems every bright liberal idea is quickly turned into SNL material on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of “World Can’t Wait” is planning a protest against “war, torture, drone attacks, secret operations and police brutality…” at President Obama’s fundraising luncheon at the W Hotel on Howard Street in San Francisco tomorrow (Tuesday October 25).

Oh my! It does get so confusing when the left recycles its mantras.

Please Mother Gaia, let Zombie be there to capture this protest on film!

Not to worry, Key West Reader. This is pretty typical of protests in San Francisco.

What is unusual is that this time the liberals are protesting against other liberals.

Pop a bowl of popcorn and enjoy the show!

It just struck me: Barack Hussein Obama’s entire Presidency, from the beginning of his campaign through today, can be summed up in one of those Wheel Of Fortune gameshow “Before and After” puzzles:

“Yes, we can’t wait.”

He didn’t even come up with a new empty-headed slogan. He actually reused two out of the three words. Even among radical liberals, this guy gives a whole new meaning to the term “uncreative.”

logis on October 24, 2011 at 6:19 PM

You’re “beginning to think that the woman is pure evil.”? I concluded that around January 2007.

Just imagine if this White House really wanted to put forth some ideas to create jobs!!! They waste more time thinking up moronic slogans and ideas and doing absolutely nothing about unemployment.

The real pity is we don’t have a free press in this country because, surely if we did, they would be questioning the administration, on a daily basis, about sloganeering and campaigning versus governing. Alas, the press in this country has been so busy trying to think of ways to get this guy re-elected, they’ve completely sacrificed any credibility they might have had.

#WeCantWait for Obamacare to be struck down by the Supreme Court.

Add you name to the ACLJ Petition:

“Florida, joined by a majority of states, has asked the Supreme Court to take up ObamaCare and declare it unconstitutional. We always knew that the Supreme Court would eventually rule on this law, and now that time has come.

Please add your name to the amicus brief we are filing with the Supreme Court this week in support of a majority of states – and a majority of the American people – urging the Court to take this case and rule ObamaCare unconstitutional. Sign on to the Supreme Court Committee to Declare ObamaCare Unconstitutional.

By joining this committee, you are actually signing your name to our brief to the Supreme Court to urge the high court to hear this case and declare ObamaCare unconstitutional.”

Jay Sekulow
ACLJ Chief Counsel
