How about:

OBAMA 2012
Because Romney is a punk-ass biatch

Is anyone else sick to their stomachs to think that the complexities of reality have to be boiled down into short, monosyllabic phrases to get people to understand them?

Bin Laden is dead. GM is alive.

Done.

He only needs a three word slogan to win:

"I Ain't Romney."

Backwards. Romney 2012.

Nopey Samey. Romney 2012.
 
2012-06-12 10:45:48 AM  

How about:

Because I won't baptize your dead relatives.

If you really need stuff to chant, just hammer on Romney's past. People might not like it, but stuff like this will work:

Romney: Bain of American Industry

"Blaming Obama is indeed the premise of Romney's argument, along with a promise to create jobs by shrinking government."

Because that's worked so well.

In the end, Obama says, he would keep the country moving forward while Romney would take it back to theGeorge W. Bushpolicies that wrecked the economy in the first place.

All in all, it is more a narrative than a bumper sticker, and that's a potential problem for Obama.


Wow, I knew things were tight over at the LAT but you'd think they'd at least pay their writers enough to buy a laptop with a functioning space bar.

Also... 'Romney is Bushbot 3.0' is too complex a message to fit on a bumper sticker?

Hearing that Romney chose "Putting Jobs First" as his campaign slogan made my brain hurt.

You mean the opposition's willingness to do away with EMS?
That's not enough of a reason?

It has to fit on a bumper sticker. Try this:


OBAMA 2012
Keep The Ambulances Running

It's true though. Obama killing Bin Laden was Bush's fault, because Bush did such a half-ass job with his time on the mound that the relief pitcher got the game winning strike-outs. If Bush did his job and didn't walk half the guys at bat Obama never would have had a chance to shine, so he should be on his knees thanking Bush. But nooooo.

From the start of 2007 to the start of 2010, which includes two years where Obama was merely a Senator. Or are you blaming those years on him and his magical time machine?

Do you think voters are going to blame Romney? We've only got 2 choices when we go in the booth.
