White House Tries Out New Leadership Slogan
(Fake AP) President Obama’s administration, in a tacit acknowledgement of the President’s failures to improve the U.S. economy, control gasoline prices, enhance America’s worldwide standing, reduce the federal debt, and lessen unemployment, is today rolling out a new slogan being called “Leading by not leading.” The effort, a subtle change to the administration’s “Leading from behind” slogan used in the recent Libyan conflict, is now being expanded to the President’s domestic agenda as well and is a major grammatical change from its earlier “Winning the Future” slogan.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said “The President views the leading by not leading effort as an honest recognition that the Republican-controlled House, which has held the American people hostage since they entered office in early 2011, simply wants dirtier air, more bail outs for Wall Street fat cats, and arsenic-based toxins to be used as food preservatives.” When asked for specifics regarding these allegations, Carney blasted House Republicans by saying “I’m not going to get into that today.”
The ‘leading by not leading’ slogan was thought to originate with the Center for a New American Security, a think tank chartered by the administration to think of things they are themselves incapable of thinking. CNAS, as they are known in the alphabet soup of Washington lobbyists, is also the think tank believed to be responsible for the Administration’s 2010 “Summer of Recovery” slogan and the current idea of replacing Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner with former Democrat governor and ex-U.S Senator Jon Corzine.
