"what happened to hope and change?"

zainyk:

So tired of reading that. The same thing that happened to “compassionate conservatism” and uniting not dividing. Four years happened.

At least David Axelrod knows what’s up from the look of the ad buys and content in the swing states. Time to throw that anvil.

Hope and Change?

Win and change.

Yeah, folks forget (or never understood) the dog whistle to the liberal base that “hope and change” was. The hope was that America could re-assert its moral righteousness after the outrages of the Bush presidency. The change was a move away from Bush-style neo-conservatism.
