So long hope and change.

DNC logo and Soviet Poster
The DNC unveiled their new logo for the 2012 convention yesterday. It sort of has that old Soviet feel to it, huh?

St. Peters Blog reported, via Free Republic:

With the unveiling of a new convention logo, organizers of the 2012 Democratic National Convention officially kicked off the event Tuesday morning in uptown Charlotte just under one year before the convention that is expected to name President Barack Obama as the party’s nominee again, writes Derrick Rose.

More than 1,000 people gathered inside Time Warner Cable Arena in uptown Charlotte for the event. The area will also host main events during the week of Sept. 3, 2012.

Along with the new logo, which is similar to the Barack Obama logo, but now features a group of people embracing one another, officials started the first part of pumping money into Charlotte’s economy by offering merchandise with the new DNC 2012 image.

Speaking at the event were Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL). Both talked about several themes that will be seen throughout the convention.

Earlier Tuesday Wasserman Schultz talked about how the convention will be “the people’s convention” despite how big and spectacular the convention will be when it takes over the Queen City.

“I think people are so tired of special interest control of the political process, special interest access to the public policy, they want to make sure the average person, working class, middle class family want to make sure there isn’t that special interest filter between them and the people who are asking for their vote,” she said.
