Does Obama Really Want To Do That?

Nobody will remember this, but I do.

There was a time when Kmart ruled the retail world.

And then someone there decided to launch a new corporate slogan.

That slogan?

"Is this place great or what?"

A huge mistake.  The company decided to leave it up to its shoppers - all of whom were tired of the long lines at the checkouts, no help on the sales floor, and a woeful lack of merchandise advertised in the newspaper - who were given the choice:

GREAT or WHAT.

And they voted for WHAT.

And Kmart went bankrupt.

Now Obama has come up with a new slogan:

CHANGE IS.

A huge mistake.

Because now we get to decide how that sentence ends.

CHANGE IS ALL THAT'S LEFT IN YOUR POCKET NOW THAT OBAMA HAS PICKED IT.

CHANGE IS SEEING THIS ONCE-PROUD COUNTRY DESCEND INTO A NATION OF FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS AND THOSE WHO SLAVE TO PAY THE WAY OF FOOD STAMP RECIPIENTS.

CHANGE IS THE NAME OF THE GAME AT THE GAS PUMP.

My favorite:

CHANGE, THANK GOD, IS COMING ON NOVEMBER 6, 2012.

I think maybe Obama would be wise not to leave that thing open-ended.
