Why the election game?

Why am I posting quotes from different years? What am I trying to say?

I truthfully don’t know yet. However, I figure it is one of three things:

1) Politicians have the same red button issues year after year.
2) The press keeps following the same story lines because they can’t think of anything new.
3) The public has the same problems year after year so there is no need for politicians to change their message.

The original game was to show how 1972 and 2008 were similar as both take place in the middle of unpopular wars with Democrats trying to win the presidency from Republicans. Now, I think it could be a larger pattern.
