So while stalking President Obama’s twitter I thought, “OMG. His slogans sound like someone’s boyfriend/girlfriend!” Don’t worry, I’ve clarified what each person means. Bo is Barack Obama. Bf is your boyfriend/girlfriend. Let’s imagine your boyfriend/girlfriend sucks because it will make the phrases funnier. Ok cool..
1.“We’ve come so close, don’t turn back now.”
Bo: I’ve been doing this four years, let me prove to you I can make change.
Bf: Don’t break up with me, you’ve already invested four years. Who else ya gunna date? Huh? I’m waiting…
2.“Let’s finish what we started.”
Bo: It’s not wise to switch leadership at this point in time.
Bf: Let’s keep each other company through winter then it’s every man for himself.
3. “Let’s do this.”
Bo: Let’s change the world.
Bf: Let’s watch movies all day. C’mon.
4.“I’m in. Are you?”
Bo: I have invested all I have. Are you working with me?
Bf: I’m in for a bar crawl. Are you coming or not?
5. “We know what real change is. We know what the future requires. We also know it won’t be easy.”
Bo: I’m going to be honest. Change will be hard, but we can do it.
Bf: I’m lying. I have no idea what the future holds or let alone requires. But yea it’ll probably be hard.
6.“You know that I know what real change looks like because you’ve seen me fight for it.”
Bo: I’ve been in the trenches helping America. You know this!
Bf: Don’t you remember when I punched that guy at the bar? I did that for YOU.
7.“We’re in this together.”
Bo: I won’t leave your side. Your pain is my pain.
Bf: We’re in this together. Or… until I find someone better.
8. “Make sure your friends show up tomorrow!”
Bo: We need everyone at the polls.
Bf: Make sure your friends show up…your one friend is so hot. I mean fun!
9. “We ended ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’”
Bo: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was unjust.
Bf: Hey babe, can we do “don’t ask, don’t tell” on spring break?
10. “You know that I say what I mean and I mean what I say.”
Bo: I’m forthright.
Bf: I say what I mean and mean what I say. Unless it’s after 2 and I’m texting you. Then I’m totally lying.
*The thoughts of this blog belong to Robin and not any of the tysomeones featured. Again, serious issue but not so serious blog post. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! I took Obama’s rhetoric and put it on an imaginary person. For news and updates I urge you to follow him and/or Mitt Romney at @MittRomney and @BarackObama.
