SLOGANEERING….That was then, this is now:
Herbert Hoover, 1932: “Prosperity is just around the corner.”
George W. Bush, 2004: “We’ve turned a corner, and we’re not turning back.”
I know that Democrats have been trying to pin the Hoover tag on Bush for a while now, but does he really think it’s a good idea to help them along?
And speaking of that, I have a contest in mind. We all know that Bush is likely to be the first president since you-know-who to suffer a net loss of jobs during his term in office, but there are probably some other comparisons we can make to poor old Herbert Hoover too. So here’s the contest: complete the sentence “George Bush is the first president since Herbert Hoover to ________ .”
Factual comparisons preferred. Cheap shots encouraged.
UPDATE: Winner so far is Paul: “. . . be succeeded by five consecutive Democratic administrations.”
