BOMFOG

a political speech heavy on platitudinous political piety and short on sincere substance

BOMFOG is an acronym for “Brotherhood Of Man, under the Fatherhood Of God”, a quote from a 1941 radio broadcast by John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller used this phrase so frequently in his campaign speeches, that reporters began referring to his ‘BOMFOG speech’.


From The Rockefellers, in their own words… I Believe

In the news… Romney offers little beyond the same old platitudes
