Maybe we will not talk about all these words or catchphrases a year later or so, but the 2012 US presidential campaign has spawned a bunch of buzzwords.These catchphrases get etched on t-shirts and they get turned into viral videos.
Following are some of the phrases:
President Barack Obama: “You didn’t build that.”
Gov. Mitt Romney: “I like being able to fire people who provide services to me.”
President Obama: “The private sector’s doing fine.”
Gov. Romney: “I love Big Bird.”
Gov. Romney said at a rally, “Corporations! Corporations are people, my friend.”
When President Obama accused Mitt Romney of playing Robin Hood in reverse calling it “Romneyhood”, Romney replied, “And if I were to coin a term it would be Obamaloney.”
Obamaloney? Romneyhood? What’s next? President Obama has said, “I think it’s called Romnesia.”
After Gov. Romney had said: “They brought us whole binders of women,” vice president Biden said at a rally, “He started talking about binders” as he is brandishing a visual aid.
Take when a senior Romney adviser described moving from the primaries to the general election by saying, “It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch.”
But you know who the Etch-A-Sketch comment was really good for? The makers of Etch-A-Sketch. Right after the comment was made sales of these things spiked 1000 per cent.
