Even Obama Thought "Yes we can" Was a Stupid Slogan

The drone-like chant echoed throughout the 2008 election season. "Yes we can. Yes we can. Yes we can." But the chant of the zobamabies was not Barack's idea. In fact, he hated the slogan.
Obama felt the catch phrase was "childish" and "corny," and even asked his staff to find something else - until his wife, Michelle, convinced him otherwise.

So it got me thinking about what some of the rejected slogans might have been.

"If Michelle ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."

"Peace, Land and Bread."

"Don't do it for me; do it for my girls, Sasha, Malia, and Maya."

"It's not communism; it's obamunism, baby!"

"Workers of the world, unite!" - (This was thrown out due to the overwhelming majority of Obama supporters being unemployed welfare recipients, college students, and pot-smokers.)

"What are you? Some kind of racist? Vote Obama!"

Do you have some others that were rejected? Share them in the comments below!
