Trickle-down zingers

Governor Mitt Romney has become quite fond of the phrase “trickle-down government” – debuting it as an attack line against the President at the debate this week, and saying it nine times the next morning in a speech to CPAC.

Turns out Romney didn’t coin the phrase, however – it’s vintage Bush 41. In the third debate between President George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton in 1992, Bush used the phrase repeatedly (check out the video below).

There’s of course one big problem with taking strategy tips from Bush’s ‘92 campaign…he didn’t win.
