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!).
