Slogans for Democrats

Suggested by a reader:

“If you don’t like taxes, don’t start wars.”

“John McCain is a good man, but he has bad assumptions. And a good man with bad assumptions will make wrong decisions.”

“Would you invest in a company whose CEO hired top managers based on a good first impression? Do they have any business people in the Republican party these days? Why haven’t their jaws hit the floor?”

“We can’t afford a maverick in the Oval Office. We need a steady hand and a level head in the White House situation room.”
