Who would be against "the American Dream" right? It's the new cliche of the left to lull the masses into believing every collectivist "progressive" thing they say.

Daily Kos: "This fight is not about public employees. This fight is not about unions. It's about Americans standing up to defend the American Dream, from soulless multinational corporations and their political goons."

President Obama: “Know that you’ve got a partner here in the White House. If you look around the room, we come from a lot of different parts of the country and people may have different perspectives. But one thing that we all absolutely share is the belief in the American Dream and the confidence that when our people get opportunities, they’ve got the ingenuity, the stick-to-it-ive-ness and the drive to succeed.”

President Obama: "They [the American public] see a widening chasm of wealth and opportunity in this country, and they wonder if the American Dream is slipping away."

Daily Kos: Obama challenges Chamber to support his agenda

MoveOn.org: "We call for an emergency rally in front of every statehouse this Saturday at noon." Quick, it's an emergency, quick. We didn't plan this all. "Stand together to save the American Dream."

Richard Trumka: "In New Jersey—in all of America—we still believe in the American dream, our vision of an America, where a lifetime of hard work has its rewards—fair and decent pay, time with our families and a measure of comfort in a secure retirement. The freedom to form unions together, and bargain together for a better life."

Self-Avowed Communist Van Jones: "The climax of the rally was a speech by Van Jones, author of The Green-Collar Economy, who said that today was the beginning of a new movement to take back the American Dream and when the crowd booed at the mention of the Tea Party, he stopped them and said, "They are a part of the movement, too, they just don't know it yet." “Today the dream will be reborn in America, Jones opened, “The dream that we can work in this country and get somewhere, that we can stand up for each other, be one country."

Hundreds Rally in D.C. to Support Wisconsin Workers

Communist Van Jones again: And we should announce that our renewed movement is more than just a mobilization to back unions or oppose illegitimate power grabs (as important as those agenda items are). Something more vital is at stake: our country needs a national movement to defend the American Dream itself. And the fight in Wisconsin creates the opportunity to build one.

Introducing The ‘American Dream’ Movement



"The Moveon protest is being billed as the 'Save the American Dream' rally. But the American Dream in this case is not that to which most citizens have become accustomed, i.e., the opportunity afforded to every American to apply themselves and work hard in order to acheive a better life. Rather, the term was originaly coined by progressives in the late 1800s and early 1900s to denote mass redistribution of wealth so as to achieve social and economic 'equality.' Thus, the 'American Dream' as it pertains to today's protests is nothing more than the old leftwing Marxist-Socialist 'Workers of the World Unite' vision of collectivists."

I don't think the intent of the founders was to break from a monarchy and it's ruling class in order to recreate their own.
And by ruling class, I mean politicians, lawyers,labor unions.

King George III would be so proud of what America has devolved into.

The "HOPE AND CHANGE" SLOGAN we heard so very much about, was nothing but a farce, and those who feel for the line, should feel dupped, into falling for such a line, that came to be NOT.

All of you all who fell so hard, and believed in everything Obama said, some of us were wise to him even then.

It'll be interesting to see if this is Skippy's slogan for 2012.

This new 'American Dream' catch phrase is actually the 'Progressive Dream' and it will evolve into the 'American Nightmare'.

Never trust a smiling communist or a social democrat who uses catch phrase cliches to appeal to the masses.

Aha! Proof positive that the right wing conservative viewpoints spouted here are machine generated. There is no human intelligence that could continue to deny the Devil his due with the fervor and single-mindedness displayed in this thread in particular.

"Hope and Change" is such a simplistic and almost childish slogan especially considering how smart Obama is.
I think the Bolsheviks slogan would work for him better -"Land to the peasants! Factories to the workers!"
