Forward has a rich history as a slogan.
Maybe Romney should use "CATCH UP DEMS" as his campaign slogan with a tag line "They're moving FORWARD from a centurys old starting point." REGRESSIVE FORWARDISM might better describe many of the policies.
Obama (Comments on this excerpt):
A New Vision Of An America In Which Prosperity Is Shared
"Too many folks still don't have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?" President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
"Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?" Obama asked. "Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?"
"I believe we have to go forward," Obama said. "I believe we have to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love, you can make it here if you try. That's what's at stake in November. That's what is why I am running for a second term as president of the United States of America."
