President Obama got his Mitt Romney zinger in on Saturday night, and the GOP candidate returned the favor last night, reports ABC News. At a $2,500-and-up-a-head fundraiser at a Ritz-Carlton just outside DC, Romney tweaked Obama's new slogan, "Forward," saying "it's like, forward, what, over the cliff?" That was after he spent a moment trying to remember it—possibly coming up with his own campaign slogan in the meantime. "His new slogan is: Progress. No, forward. Forward! That’s it!" he said. "Progress would be better. I might use that one myself, actually." (More Mitt Romney stories.)
