2012 Slogan: Are You Better Off Than You Were Five Minutes Ago?
You know, Reagan ran a great, great campaign in 1980 and made famous the slogan, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” The Republican nominee in 2012 needs to run around and say, “Are you better off than you were five minutes ago?” Because it’s getting worse by the minute! “Are you better off than you were five minutes ago? Are you better off than you were ten minutes ago?” For most people the answer is, ‘No, I was better off ten minutes ago than I am now,” because until something changes, the path that we’re on is taking aim at everybody, not just the 1%. The top 1% are the named targets, but everybody — everybody — is being targeted here, if you will.
