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.

It matters little. Either the electorate is so stupid that they vote this fellow into office again or they are reasonable and vote for someone else - that being Romney.
It is really out of out hands at this point - either folks (stupid and non tax paying) have progressed beyond thinking (and maybe beyond paying taxes) or it is salvageable and can be turned around.
Not sure of the outcome but sure that if Obama is re-elected, we are in for a European bias - utmost that we will act like the Europeans and charge our cards to the hilt.
Hey, gas is only 7 dollars a gallon, who cares? Not those that can’t afford gas anyway.
Ah yes, the country DOES depend on this election and it is not a petty thing. You stupid assholes that continue to vote for more benefits are going to lose big time!
Obama has crass.
To avenge the utter gall of daring to challenge His Big Ears?
There is also another rain storm in the works....cold rain and snow.
A pro-Romney group needs to cut a 30 second spot - Obama seeking revenge and Romney seeking love.
If there is no ad, no one will ever learn about it. You can be damned sure the MSM will try to bury this disastrous remark.
This is a major gaffe by Obama and must be exploited. Catholics, soft Dems, Reagan Dems, Hispanics, seniors won’t like the meanness. This is how a president speaks?
Revenge against Whitey. It’s pretty obvious what he is.
I was out at a honk and wave on a local initiative to raise taxes for schools. My 12 year old son was with me waving No Tax Increase signs.
Of course, the unions want to pass this measure. Several cars stopped and flipped off a 12 year old. Classy, no?
Just like his absolutely stupid “Don’t call my bluff” remark. He doesn’t understand the English language, its vocabulary, its grammar, or its idioms.
"Behold, I am against you, O arrogant one,"
"The arrogant one will stumble and fall With no one to raise him up; And I will set fire to his cities And it will devour all his environs."
Many people consider Chicago activist Valerie Jarrett to be the brain behind Obama. She has her office on the second floor of the west wing of the White House. Yesterday she gave a final election pep rally to her management team and sent them out to motivate their staffs.
Her comments that were related by one of her staffers should give people something to think about. According to him Jarrett told them,
After we win this election, its our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we dont forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress wont be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.
He said she was talking directly to about three of them, Senior staff. And she wasnt trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it.
If Obama wins and begins a revenge administration, dont forget the people you know who voted for him.
Asking voters to vote for ‘revenge’ is shocking presidential rhetoric. And, “Punish your eneemies” is supposed to be some sort rhetorical statement of brilliance?
It’s not only unpresidential, it’s un-American.
Seriously, I don’t know what to make of this man in the White House. Is this really someone who many consider a leader? Dianne Sawyer, Mika, and the rest of you lefties. Are you sure this is your guy? This is the one speaking for you?
Obama sounds like a man that should he lose on Tuesday will forgo the standard concession call and instead call on his supporters to burn their cities down. And, I don’t think I’m being unreasonable in this analysis. The man’s rhetoric speaks for itself. Obama really seems unhinged. The question is: Are the MSM also unhinged?
Is it necessary to post a picture of that POS?
OMG her face looks like those people in Charleston Heston movie the Omega Man. God that woman is uggglllllyyyyy.
Revenge for being successful and smart? Revenge for being white? Revenge for not picking a dufuss for VP running mate? Revenge for getting his imperial loins in an uproar?
And I guess it's understandable since English and the associated culture is not the one he identifies most closely with. Let's just work to put an end to the situation which causes us to be subjected to his frequent misuse of common English expressions.
“Punish your enemy, American tax payers, by voting for me! Bammy, did you think this one through? Really?
