1. Good observation

It also seems a clunky construction.

Winning is something you have to achieve.

The future is something that comes to everyone inevitably...

...or it's is always ahead of you and never achievable, i.e. the old riddle "what is always approaching but never arrives?"

Who is in charge of messaging over there?

3. Well, THAT did cross my mind as I listened to the speech.
esp the part about the "the booming economy" and no mention of the "roaring stock market" being based on

4. Distilling a complex situation down to a TLA always presents risk of ridicule. Remember WIN?
Whip Inflation Now, a slogan created by the Ford Administration in the 1970s.

A WIN button worn upside-down reads "NIM", read as "No Immediate Miracles".
