The political rhetoric between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney seems to be spiraling out of control.
Yesterday, Obama claimed Romney’s economic policies made him the reverse “Robin Hood,” or as the president cleverly put it, “Romney Hood.” Now, Romney has now trademarked his own phrase: “Obamaloney” in response to the attacks coming from the Obama campaign.
“We’ve been watching the president say a lot of things about me and about my policies, and they’re just not right,” Romney told Fox News. ”And, if I were to coin a term, it would be ‘Obamaloney.’ He’s serving up a dish which is simply in contradiction of the truth… he’s just simply saying things that are not accurate.”
Though many voters wish the candidates would just stick to the issue and stop with the petty name calling and clever one-liners, that is unlikely to happen now that the very contentious election season is just heating up.
Fox News’ Carl Cameron may have said it best: “So the president opens with ‘Romney Hood’ and Mr. Romney calls that and raises it with an ‘Obamaloney.’ And it looks like we are going to get a lot more of that everyday.”
