I think several speech writers were watching mystery men prior to the conventions this year. Here are a couple of quotes:
In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.”
People the world over have always been more impressed by the power of our example than by the example of our power.Bill Clinton
There were a few more that I am having trouble finding moment. Here are some I made up (not necessarily my views). I hope none of them have been used.
We must bring the fight to our enemies before the fight brings our enemies to us.
We need to raise our interest in inflation before our inflation raises our interest.
We will withdraw our troops as soon as possible but it is not possible to withdraw our troops soon.
Instead of doubting the the benefits of drilling, we need to give drilling the benefit of the doubt.
We have changed the way individuals donated millions to millions of individuals donating change.
My opponent asks you to believe what he says but does he say what he believes.
Our opponents don’t believe you deserve change so they only offer the change they believe you deserve.
UPDATE: Doug tipped me Slate was inspired by my story or had the same observation. More likely the latter. The name for it is apparently Antimetabole. To borrow from bond I always knew Bill Clinton was a cunning linguist.
