Since President Obama totally lost that whole Hopeandchange ™ deal, after admitting failure, he has moved onto another catch-phrase. And is tweeting out proudly, bless his heart.

POTUS: “It’s time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong & growing middle class.”

— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 27, 2012

And running ads!

Obama Invokes ‘new economic patriotism’ in latest ad. Pay more taxes, call yourself a patriot. What bulls–t. #tcot http://t.co/GzlJcp76

This Twitter user responds with “huh?”

"Economic patriotism" WTF?

— SunnyRight (@sunnyright) September 27, 2012

And others explain it’s the new Obama, same as the old. Only this time with even more Orwell!

“'New economic patriotism'? Does that sound severely creepy to anyone else?" Yes. http://t.co/902pK90q

"New economic patriotism" = less opportunity, less prosperity, higher unemployment, mediocre growth, crushing debt

Obama has gone positively Orwellian.

Indeed. Citizens explain what this Orwellian nonsense actually means.

LMAO @MGraham969 just said "Here's what 'economic patriotism' means–You create some 'economic', & he'll 'patriotically' distribute it…"

— Leslie #WeAreN (@LADowd) September 27, 2012

Obama has added 6 trillion to the debt, so he is the last person who should be mentioning "economic patriotism".

I roll my eyes at all the "Obama is a socialist" stuff but phrases like "economic patriotism" certainly gives pause.

— Scott Shackford (@SShackford) September 27, 2012

The latest Obama phrase that should make any true advocate of individual liberty cringe: "economic patriotism." He means collectivism.

And more explanations come in via hashtag form: #EconomicPatriotism

#EconomicPatriotism means more and more Americans on government food stamps and Obama Phones!

#Obama's 'economic patriotism' (aka 'socialism') is so fundamentally opposite of what improves people's lives. Yet somehow he sells it.

Keep the truth coming, Twitter! Don’t let America pick up what he is laying down. Speaking truth and embracing freedom? That is patriotism.
