• 6 New Mitt Romney Campaign Slogans

    Mitt Romney

    Responding to the firestorm surrounding Mitt Romney's comments about moocher-Americans, the Romney campaign uploaded a video titled "Ann Romney to FOX31: Mitt Doesn't Disdain the Poor" to its official Youtube account. Then, just as quickly, the video was taken down.

    But the catchy "Mitt Doesn't Disdain the Poor" chant should live on, if only in modified form. Here's logarithmic look at the devolution of Republicans political slogans and where they're likely to go next…
    .

    * Herbert Hoover, 1928: "A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage."


    .

    * Ronald Reagan, 1984: "It's morning again in America."

    .

    * John McCain, 2008: "Country First."

    .

    * Christine O'Donnell, 2010: "I am not a witch."

    .

    * Mitt Romney, January 2012: "Believe in America."

    .

    * Romney, 9/19/2012: "I don't disdain the poor."

    .

    * Romney, 9/25/2012: "I tolerate the underclass."

    .

    * Romney, 10/1/2012: "You people are adequate."

    .

    * Romney, 10/15/2012: "Message: I care a modest amount."

    .

    * Romney, 11/1/2012: "Let them eat cake as long as they didn't buy it with food stamps."

    .

    * Romney, 11/7/2012: "I shouldn't have changed my slogan."

    It's quite a devolution, though frankly, the quality of sloganeering has been all downhill since James Blaine's 1884 attack on alleged deadbeat dad Grover Cleveland, "Ma, Ma, Where's my Pa, Gone to the White House, Ha, Ha, Ha."
