Candidates will sometimes have taglines that quickly sum up their philosophy.
In Virginia's 5th District, I wish Republican Robert Hurt would use this more - money we don't have. It's simple, to the point, and grabs the Tea Party mantra of not spending our children's future today.
Democrat Tom Perriello often uses the tagline "10 years of Hurt is enough." Since Hurt will still be a state senator if he loses, there will be more than 10 years of Hurt. I guess Perriello is trying to tie Hurt to George W. Bush's time in office, starting with the 2000 Election.
"Money we don't have" is the theme of the next year. The next decade. And maybe beyond.
We'll better prepare the country by reminding them what lies ahead.
