  •  Jim Hightower used that line about Bush Sr (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    Hopeful Skeptic, blueoasis

    In a speech at the 1988 Democratic Convention.

    Ann Richards later used the line to talk about Dubya.

    So Texas progressives are the folks who put it into political currency.

    Not sure if it was in common use before they applied it to politics, or if Hightower came up with it on his own.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world - Jack Layton
