More Marxist inspiration?

I've noted from time to time where President Obama or his political campaigns have seemed to borrow from communist, Marxist or socialist themes of the past. Today, is another one of those days.

The president's reelection campaign says Forward will be its new campaign slogan.

This time I'll let others make the connection:

The UK Daily Mail:  Forward': Obama borrows from Chairman Mao for his new campaign slogan

The Washington Times: New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism

And from Comrades! Obama's New Slogan: FORWARD!

From Osawatomie to Abe Lincoln to claiming to defend against a war on women, there seems to be a conscious or subconscious force drawing our president and his team to employ tried-and-true socialist slogans and themes.

Taken individually, few might notice. Might even be coincidence. But give us string of 'em, and we can't help but wonder what's up.
