As I noted here before, the Obama campaign has apparently decided on “Forward” as its campaign slogan — settling on half the MSNBC slogan. So before you assume that means Romney will decide then that his campaign should be “We Report” (half the Fox News slogan), here’s Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball coming to the rescue with this list HERE of suggested slogans for the Romney campaign.

Of course, since partisan politics often is really all about huffed up silliness, I prefer the less serious slogans. My favorites among the Cystal Ball list:

Our favorite comes from @gavinize, who riffed off Obama’s 2008 slogan: “Hope Less, Do More.”

Alex Burns (@aburnspolitico) from Politico suggested a term associated with Richard Nixon: “Sock it to me.”

Actually, those of us independent voters who find partisan polemics increasingly tiresome and predictable sometimes think of this slogan for both campaigns: “Put a sock in it.” Some others from the list:

Jason Whitman of the Young Republican National Federation must have noticed Ann Romney’s recent comment about her husband: “I still look at him as the boy that I met in high school when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy. And so there’s a wild and crazy man inside of there just waiting to come out!” So Whitman (@JasonBWhitman) suggests: “Inside, I’m a wild man.”

….@Yert_Siwel: “The last 4 years have been…Ruff

….@KeyWestAuthor: “Every dog has its day”

@malgeo: “A chicken in every pot, a car elevator in every home”

@RussCroteau: “Trust Me I Didn’t Get Rich by Accident”

@ThePantau: “If you were lukewarm for McCain, you’ll be milquetoast for Mitt”

If you have suggestions for the Romney and Obama campaign on campaign slogans, leave them in comments and I’ll later foward the email to Sabato & Co so they can see what they have unleashed (OOPS!).

    The Wingnuts were all aghast at the “Forward” campaign from Obamama. Of course “Forward” is a Marxist/Socialist propaganda campaign. LGF put their delusions into perspective.

    > Mitt Romney – The 1% Solution

    > Mitt Romney – The 2008 Recession was just a warm up

    > Mitt Romney – Because the Rich Know Better

    > Mitt Romney – Whatever you believe, so does he!

    > Obama or Romney – Change you can Believe In or Beliefs that Change?

    Gee, this stuff really does write itself!

    I think the other half of the FOx slogan is appropriate and gets right to the heart of democracy…. “You decide”.

    It also leaves open entirely the basis of that decision…. which is Romney all right. If you want him to support a position, you don’t have to search very hard to find him taking that position at some point. “You decide” now if he’s going to support that position or not if he becomes president.

    I kind of like StockBoyLA’s slogan.

    Romney: Flip-flopper in Chief

    Obama and Romney: The best President money can buy

    Obama: In the ballpark, neither too far left or right

    Romney: Flip-flopping elites from Massachusetts, Hey look what happened when you refused the last one!

    Obama: Vote for me or the terrorists win

    Romney: The White House needs a car elevator

    Obama: Four more years of me is better than an instant Depression

    Romney: Because you really don’t need health care

    Obama: Trust

    Romney: All ideas welcome

    Obama: Tweet me

    Romney: At least I governed a state before running for the highest office in the country

    Obama: Coolness

    Romney: Survivor

    Maybe more later.

    I think all the slogans proposed are fun.

    Rcoutme: I like, “All ideas welcome.” Or how about the very similar, “I support your ideas”?
