Skip to comments.Obama urges voters to take 'revenge' on Election Day, Romney team rips 'terrible' message
Posted on 11/02/2012 7:21:33 PM PDT by markomalley
The Romney campaign ripped President Obama after the president suggested Friday that supporters take "revenge" by voting against the Republican nominee.
During a speech in Springfield, Ohio, Obama talked about the Clinton administration and its economic plan that "asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more." Then he mentioned Mitt Romney, drawing boos from the crowd.
"No, no, no -- don't boo, vote," Obama said. "Vote. Voting is the best revenge."
It was a slight riff on the president's usual interjection when members of the audience start booing.
But the Romney camp claimed Obama's remarks draw a clear distinction between the two men, just four days before Election Day.

Romney hasn’t stolen 10 trillion dollars from US, unlike someone else!
0bama <> Class
0bama <> Freedom
These are mutually exclusive.
Like Barry’s 97 year old “lady” said in his MorOn.org campaign ad, “Burn this m*****f***** down!”
I tell you what, mark, this election boils down to one thing and one thing only.
This is the battle between Good and Evil.
This is a turning point in the history of mankind, and it is a pass/ fail situation.
One way or the other, this is it.
I’m going to say it like I see it, and I do not care whom it pisses off or not.
The Devil sent Obama, and God sent Mitt Romney.
That’s how it is, and it is time for us to coose wisely.
Barack Hussein Obama is the perfect picture of an angry black man who has nothing to offer and who is deeply offended at any sign that he is being “dissed”.
Oh the huge manatee!
Mitt Romney asks voters to vote for Love of Country.
Just about sums up what they stand for I am going with Mitt
Let all the scum on twitter who are threatening riots
vote for Obama they are made for each other they are all
losers with chips on their shoulders.
Let’s just stick to this “revenge” theme for a minute.
Who is more likely to place a revenge vote? Voters sympathetic to Obama’s sense of hurt, or residents of the burroughs of Queens, Staten Island, and Brooklyn, who must by now to be tired of cold nights, low food, no fuel and lack of order? Their plight largely ignored by the media and by their governing elites intent upon staging a marathon, will they not protest their treatment on Tuesday and call attention to themselves? I know I would.
They haven’t been treated well. Watch NY and NJ. They may be the biggest shocks of the election evening.
Terrible divisive words for a president to say. If there are riots, he should hold all the blame. He is a professional agitator.
...he doesn’t talk this way about the animals who killed our ambassador in Libya. :(
Has he entire duration of this administration not been about revenge ?
Revenge against whitey
Revenge against conservatives
Revenge against America in general
Revenge against Christians,
Revenge against Israel
Revenge against Business
Revenge against the wealthy
This asshat is something else. I would much rather prefer to “take revenge” face to face Bronco.
Yes...it is Good vs. Evil.....the Dark Side vs. the Light!
You can see it in the behavior of Zero’s supporters.
I was standing on a busy corner with 40 other Romney supporters waving American flags and Romney/Ryan signs.
A car came by filled with young adults....one guy ‘mooned’ us! Others gave the finger (Dem Salute) and/or cursed us!
Good news is for every single evil action like that there were 10 positive good responses of thumbs up, waves, clapping hands or horn honks!
With God’s Mercy....on Tuesday the Light will overcome the Darkness!
Is Obama confused? Revenge is normally sought against those who have been in power and making the decisions, not those who are merely challenging those in power.
Everything is upside down for him. Everthing’s that happened while he’s been in office is someone else’s fault so he and his supporters must seek revenge.
What a jackass!
And just four years ago he was the unifier in chief.
More like the igniter in chief.
Cities will riot and burn next week.
I’ve made jokes about Zer0 starting riots when he loses. I’m not sure that they’re jokes anymore.
The Democrats are gonna get revenge for sure...
They are going to get “Moctezuma’s revenge” just about the
moment Ozero steps up to the podium to give his trite and
bitter concession speech.
That all familiar, crampy and nauseous feeling of anger, regret and disbelief will hit them all at once. It’s called
I hope they rented many port-a-potties.
My first thought. Obama is the guy that rode into office on a media created myth and has done absolutely nothing to pursue the promises he made during the campaign. So, what kind of "revenge" is he seeking?
So what is it that Dems are supposed to be taking revenge for? The crappy job picture? The stalled economy? The skilled performance in Benghazi?
Over and above an appeal to one of humanity’s basest instincts, this is an entirely un-American, completely Arabist/Muslim message, in case anyone missed it.
0bama should be begging for forgiveness, not running for president.
