You can't get enough of enough is enough

The hot new catch-phrase in the campaign: Enough is enough.

Obama, responding to Team McCain saying Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” remark was sexist and/or generally insulting:

“They seize on innocent remarks, try to throw them out of context, throw up an outrageous ad because they know that it’s catnip for the news media,” Obama said before delivering remarks about education to a small group of supporters gathered in a high school library. “I don’t care what they say about me but I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and swift boat politics. Enough is enough.”

McCain, responding to the current financial crisis:

“Enough is enough. We are going to reform the way Wall Street does business and put an end to the greed that has driven our markets into chaos. We will stop multimillion dollar payouts to CEO’s who have broken the public trust. We will put an end to running Wall Street like a casino. We will make businesses work for the benefit of their shareholders and employees. And we will make sure that your savings, IRA, 401k and pension accounts are protected.”

While McCain's version seems to be of the "Kick the bums out!" variety, Obama's is more "Stop lying about my record!"

Obama '08
Not just running against John McSame and George W. Bush.
Now we're taking on George H.W. Bush too!
...as Bob Dole
