Rick Santorum screws the pooch of brand marketing

Last night on Greta von Susteren’s show, the former Pennsylvania Senator S******* had this to say about his party:

The other thing we have to do is we have to stand up and say, look, America — Conservatives believe in the stewardship of patrimony. In other words, there are things in America that are really good, that work, have worked for 200 years. And we have a guy named Barack Obama who’s trying to fundamentally rewrite everything, change our economy, change our social structure, change our foreign policy, to something new, something fashionable, something cool. Well, we’re not cool, we’re not fashionable.

Is what Obama proposing really that seismec, that game-changing on a “fundamental” level?

Arguably, Barack’s national service programs and energy infrastructure overhall would affect TVA-like econimic shifts, but it seems increasingly unlikely either will pass.

I’m also skeptical of any attempt to “fundamentally”  oberhaul a system that, even if it hasn’t “worked” more often than it hasn’t (and I do think it is a matter of “if”), it has still engendered the emergence of  one of the least oppressive and most prosperous societies in human history; but I don’t see such a threat coming from Obama.

    You’d be surprised to see how many people really think this is going on. Here’s an astounding visual and just a single example…
