Are we going to hear politicians talking about having 20/20 vision of the state of things?

Asked by LostInParadise (26032points) April 10th, 2019

Or is that so obvious and hokey that even politicians will not use it?

Nothing is so obvious or hokey that a politician won’t use it. In fact, I think sounding corny or lame is a plus in some people’s minds because it’s nonthreatening. People have seemingly lost the desire to support leaders they can look up to. Instead they want leaders that make them feel superior.

We are going to be hearing word plays on twenty-twenty vision for more than a year, in advertising and popular media as well as politics. I’ve seen a few instances already—such as a professional organization’s conference theme, something like “2020: A New Vision.” But not as many as I expected. I thought this one would have been run into the ground already, just like almost any other idea or fad that seems fresh for about 15 minutes. I’m actually surprised that we’re not worn out with it yet.

My son said Barbara Walters should be in Times Square when the ball drops and announce “I’m Barbara Walters and this is 2020.”

They may use it if they can rearrange their eyes so that one is on the right, to see nothing but what’s right, and one on the left, to see nothing but what’s left.

Won’t be surprised if centrist candidates like Cory Booker or O’Rourke end up using it
