To All Loopy Loony Libs: Why did Obumphuck pick "Forward" as his slogan? Could it be that he has something in common with Adolf Schicklgruber and Iosif Visarionovich Dzhugashvili, who used the same slogan?

Probably has more to do with the fact that "forward" is the opposite of "backward," thus offering a distinct contrast with your side.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has released the latest unemployment numbers for January. The unemployment rate has jumped back up to 7.9 percent with just 157,000 jobs being added to the economy. The number of unemployed and under-employed persons still sits at an alarming number.

The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January. The
unemployment rate was 7.9 percent and has been at or near that level since September 2012.

In January, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was
about unchanged...
