So I was doing some research, so to as better serve this blog community now that the elections are over, and came across something that is absolutely too incredible to NOT put down here.
From a time article written in 2006, I learned that Mahmoud Ahmadinijad was elected in 2005. His campaign cry? (This is a no BS item now)
“We can do it.”
Now, if you add to that President-Elect Obama’s slogan of “Yes We Can” and you have the makings of a VERY interesting story. For the slogan “We can do it, yes we can!” was first delevered in Britain, in 1999 by none other than Bob The Builder! They can’t even get an original slogan, and we expect them to run our country??
(EAGLEEYE NOTE: In actuality, Bob would say Can we fix it, yes we can… but the similarities are to striking for me not to parody. For those with kids who watched, there were many times where the characters combined ‘We can fix it’, ‘we can do it’, ‘yes we can’, etc etc. Too rich, if you ask me.)
