informative yet vague

I didn't notice until last night that our newly re-elected governor's campaign slogan is "Getting Things Done for People." WTF? We're getting things--we can't say exactly what--done for people--we can't say exactly who. I realize that most campaign slogans are hardly models of specificity, but at least talk about better tomorrows and times for change contains indirect promises that the future will be better than the past. "Getting Things Done for People" is so outrageously vague it almost has a satirical quality. I mean, I could carry out murder-for-hire plots for heroin-abusing pedophiles and still claim that I was getting things done for people.
