(Newser) – President Obama got his Mitt Romney zinger in on Saturday night, and the GOP candidate returned the favor last night, reports ABC News. At a $2,500-and-up-a-head fundraiser at a Ritz-Carlton just outside DC, Romney tweaked Obama's new slogan, "Forward," saying "it's like, forward, what, over the cliff?" That was after he spent a moment trying to remember it—possibly coming up with his own campaign slogan in the meantime. "His new slogan is: Progress. No, forward. Forward! That’s it!" he said. "Progress would be better. I might use that one myself, actually."

I thought his slogan was (say No to the Dope) or (No hope No change) or (Sorry i failed>i will try to do better) or ( Its all about! me! me! me! ) or ( Losers can be winners with your vote! ) or ( say yes! to 4 more years! of nothing! ) or ( Darn! let me try again to bring America down even more! ) or ( Forward off the cliff! ) or ( forward down the bridge to no where! ) Or ( Forward with Obama is not an option! )

Never have we had a President more deserving of ridicule. Obama, the clown and fool, has been nothing but an embarrassment for our nation at every level. His destruction of America is completely unmatched.
