Ahem. As I was saying
(about history)...

The last time a president told the American people that prosperity was just around the corner, it took FDR almost three terms to clean up the mess!
Kerry Mocks Bush's 'Itsy Bitsy' Campaign Slogan

By Patricia Wilson

GREENSBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - Democratic White House challenger John Kerry mocked President Bush's new "turning the corner" campaign slogan on Saturday and said he offered voters more than "little itsy bitsy" sound bites.

On the second day of a 22-state, 43-city tour that will take him and running mate John Edwards from coast to coast by bus, train and boat over the next two weeks, Kerry disputed Bush's contention that "we are turning the corner and we're not turning back" on the U.S. economy. LINK
Substitute George W. Bush for Herbert Hoover:
Today we're living in a shanty
Today we're scrounging for a meal

Today I'm stealing coal for fires
Who knew I could steal?

I used to winter in the tropics

I spent my summers at the shore

Fred (wrapped in newspaper for warmth):
I used to throw away the papers

He don't anymore

We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
You made us what we are today

Prosperity was 'round the corner
The cozy cottage built for two
In this blue heaven
That you gave us
Yes! We're turning blue!

They offered us Al Smith and Hoover
We paid attention and we chose

Not only did we pay attention

We paid through the nose.

In ev'ry pot he said 'a chicken'
But Herbert Hoover he forgot
Not only don't we have the chicken
We ain't got the pot!

Hey, Herbie!

You left behind a grateful nation

So, Herb, our hats are off to you
We're up to here with admiration

Come down and have a little stew

Come down and share some Christmas dinner
Be sure to bring the missus too
We got no turkey for our stuffing
Why don't we stuff you?

We'd like to thank you, Herbert Hoover
For really showing us the way
You dirty rat, you
Bureaucrat, you
Made us what we are today

Come and get it, Herb! LINK
