It looks like Obama swipted Ford’s ‘Built to Last’ slogan last night for his State of the Union Address.
Don Surber at The Daily Mail reported:
In a stunningly cynical and ironic statement, Barack Obama said: “Let’s never forget: Millions of Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day deserve a Government and a financial system that do the same. It’s time to apply the same rules from top to bottom: No bailouts, no handouts, and no copouts.”

This comes from the man who bailed out company after company, who increased by 44% the handouts of food stamps and who threw away billions in loan guarantees to his billionaire cronies. His speech was perhaps the biggest copout of the year if not the century.
As with all his other speeches, this one did not sing. He is a boring lecturer who cannot quote great works like Kennedy or King because it is unlikely he has read any. But he did unveil his slogan for his re-election campaign. Let’s see if readers can spot it:
“An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.”
“Tonight, I want to speak about how we move forward, and lay out a blueprint for an economy that’s built to last – an economy built on American manufacturing, American energy, skills for American workers, and a renewal of American values.”
“You see, an economy built to last is one where we encourage the talent and ingenuity of every person in this country.”
“An America built to last insists on responsibility from everybody.”
“That’s an America built to last.”
Geesh. He even swiped his slogan. What a disgrace.
