As he searches for a slogan for Obama/Biden 2012, David Axelrod knows Obama can’t reuse President Reagan’s “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” Now that Climategate’s Phil Jones’ expression “hide the decline” permanently has entered the political lexicon, may we offer Axelrod a suggestion?
“Obama/Biden 2012: Hide the Decline”
By Asher Embry
We’ve got ourselves a Prez who’s in a permanent campaign.
Each day’s events designed by Ax to help “O” run again.
Yet unemployment’s on the rise and terror’s gotten
Instead of watching spending, he’s just opened up the purse.
The world has seen him dither and apologize and bow
Resulting in the worldwide view our country’s weaker now.
Transparency’s elusive and post-partisan he’s not.
With made-up jobs and health care claims his honesty is shot.
He’s “calling out” his enemies, vindictiveness abounds.
And any sari’d blonde, it seems, can crash the White House grounds.
No way that voters feel that we are better off with “O.”
So Ax knows Reagan’s question will be answered with a “no!”
What can he do? What novel tricks can Ax this time arrange?
Get Shepard Fairey painting “Hope” and talk again of “Change”?
Obama needs a slogan. Thanks to Phil Jones, I’ve got mine.
It’s this: “Obama/Biden 2012: Hide the Decline”

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
