Presidential Campaign Slogans...... Not Quite

Many presidential candidates have had popular and inspiring campaign slogans. Most candidates go through many ideas before they commit to one. Here are some that never made it off the drawing board.

George W. Bush - "Hooked on Phonics worked for me"

Bill Clinton - "I support fat chicks"

George H. Bush - "My wife does not look like George Washington"

Richard M. Nixon - "You can call me Dick"

Abraham Lincoln - "Not only will I free the slaves but I will get rid of all these freaking' zombies too"

George Washington - "Wooden teeth for everybody!!"

Ulysses S. Grant - "Stop naming your sons Ulysses"

Herbert Hoover - "Time travel is our future"

Thomas Jefferson - "If you liked the last guy, you will love me"

Grover Cleveland - "If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands"

Theodore Roosevelt - "Prostitution will be legalized"

Barack Obama - "I'm not George W. Bush"

Woodrow Wilson - "Where's Waldo?"

Millard Fillmore - "We need to trust children more"

John F. Kennedy - "To answer your question, yes, I had sexual relations with Marilyn Monroe"

Where's Waldo - hilarious!

It's a shame Barack never used that line. Especially as he got a Nobel Peace Prize for pretty much being not George Bush.

James Garfield: "Shoulda Ducked."
Gerald Ford: "You Can Call Him Dick."
William Henry Harrison: "Coats Are For Pussies."
William McKinley: "What Garfield Said."
Theodore Roosevelt: "I Carry a Big Stick. Wanna See? Ladies?"
James Buchanan: "I Really Was President!"
Chester Arthur: "What Buchanan Said."
Franklin Roosevelt: "I'd Rather Be Blind. Have You Seen Eleanor?"
Lyndon Johnson: "But, I Didn't"
Warren Harding: "I'm Still Dead."
Calvin Coolidge: "Get While the Getting's Good. 23-Skidoo!"
Franklin Pierce: "More Than an Answer to a Trivial Pursuit Question."
I've got more, but, as Franklin Roosevelt also said, "I've Been Here Too Long-I've Gotta Go."

Those work for me. Well, not me if I were running, but I don't care what slogans those guys use. I'm sure Romney will have some good ones.

Obama's for next go around, "Not the hope and change you were expecting."

Tossing It Out

Clinton's could ditto Kennedy's, with a mere name change, because I don't care what you try to call it, it was still sexual relations.
