Today does bring with it a whiff of nostalgia for the electioneering words and phrases we've all come to know and love. Take a listen above for some of our economic favorites.

So here's the test: How many of the hard ones -- not Romney or Obama or Clinton -- can you identify? There were three, if you were listening well.

Tell us your answers -- and what phrases you're going to miss. We're on Twitter @MarketplaceAPM. We'll post the answers on Thursday at 1pm ET.


Update

Did you get 'em all? Here's an answer key:

"9 - 9 - 9" --- Herman Cain.

"Obamneycare" --- Gov. Tim Pawlenty

"It's almost like an Etch-a-Sketch" --- Eric Fehrnstrom, campaign advisor to Gov. Mitt Romney

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
