    Daily Kos: Romney Steals Thatcher's "Labour Isn't Working" Campaign Strategy
    :badgrin:
    In Ohio this week, Mitt Romney stood before a banner reading "Obama Isn't Working" and blamed the President for the shuttered plant he used as a backdrop. As it turns out, there are only two problems with this picture. Sadly for Romney, the drywall firm in question closed in June 2008 when George W. Bush was still comfortably ensconced in the White House. And as it turns out, Mitt's entire "Obama Isn't Working" theme has been lifted lock, stock and barrel from Margaret Thatcher's 1979 campaign in the UK.

    You're right, as usual; Obama's working overtime spending and borrowing and golfing

    So, Romney 'steals' a slogan from another Conservative campaign.

    Sooooooo... where did Obama 'steal' his 2012 campaing slogan (Forward)... from?

    Oh dear.... that's not gonna be good... it's a stock slogan from... Communists around the world.

    Cool.

    Yea, let's make an issue with who stole what from who... see how well that plays with your fellow Americans.

    Please ignore the fact that Obama's speechwriter at the time had been Patrick's speechwriter in his 2006 campaign.
