What is Mr. Paul trying to restore about America? More importantly, who is this supposed to appeal to? I'm not looking to go back to anything so this has no appeal to me.
Conclusion: I guess for people trying to go backwards.
Mitt Romney makes a different play and beckons in another direction. But does this mean Romney believes in America, or are we supposed to believe in America? Or are we supposed to believe in Romney's idea of America? Believing is better than hoping, I guess.
Conclusion: If we are to believe in America as it is, wouldn't that mean we believe in the current version of America (including leadership)?
It's a "yes" or "no". President Obama, the most pop-culturally relavant president in recent times, is riding the tide of incumbency. He does not need a slogan, but useful anyways.
Conclusion: Can anyone screw this one up?
Mr. Paul's would have the most relevance as far as association to message; it is clear he wants to take America back to a time he believes was better. Mr. Romney takes a swipe with word play, which is smart but very aggressive. President Obama really isn't saying anything about himself but his team has removed the fog of meaning.
Now let's remove the haze from the lawmaking process-r-r-
President Obama, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, campaign slogans,
