Obama campaign explains voting as 'revenge' remark
politico.com ^ | 11/3/12 | Donovan Slack

Posted on 11/03/2012 11:01:26 AM PDT by Justaham

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki, asked about the president saying Friday that "voting is the best revenge," said the he was referring to revenge against GOP challenger Mitt Romney's lies and scare tactics in recent ads.

Psaki said a recent ad falsely claiming that Jeep was moving operations overseas amounted to a "scare tactic," “frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job.

"And the message [President Obama] was sending is if you don’t like the policies, if you don’t like the plan that Gov. Romney is putting forward, If you think that’s a bad deal for the middle class, then you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot," Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday. "It’s nothing more complicated than that.”

Barry has to “explain”, or qualify everything he says. It’s all lies, anyway.

They can explain the meaning of “revenge” all they want. But taken in the context of Obama’s facial and body language, people understand what he meant.

"Vote for love of country!"

A fitting theme for the last two days of this campaign!

The Founders of America, impassioned believers in Creator-endowed life, liberty, rights, laws to protect them, and freedom of individual enterprise and opportunity certainly would echo Mitt Romney's statement today!

After centuries of Government-over-People arrangements, whether by one, a few, or many, our Founders saw liberty as a Creator-endowed blessing (see Preamble to Constitution), and that Constitution which formed our Republic changed that arrangement to a Creator - People - Governmeent form of self-government which protected those "blessings" of liberty.

Revenge is not an emotion which is conducive to good government or successful individual lives.

Hopefully, on Tuesday, American citizens, motivated by an internal longing for more liberty and less government will have made their appeal to Divine Providence, as did the Founders, and exercise their sacred right to vote for a leader who appeals, not to their baser emotions, but to their God-given longings and desires.

Perhaps we might be inspired by listening to a tremendous modern hymn entitled, "Heal Our Land," by Orrin Hatch,, as performed by Winton Phipps.

Maybe not China, but what about Italy?
AUTO BAILOUT BOMBSHELL: Fiat Says Chrysler, Jeep Production May Move to Italy
Submitted by Mark Modica on Tue, 10/29/2012 - 10:53
Coming hot on the heels of speculation that some Jeep production may be moved to China comes a bombshell from a Bloomberg report. Fiat is now considering moving Chrysler and Jeep production to Italy.

According to the piece, “To counter the severe slump in European sales, (Fiat CEO Sergio) Marchionne is considering building Chrysler models in Italy, including Jeeps, for export to North America. The Italian government is evaluating tax rebates on export goods to help Fiat. Marchionne may announce details of his plan as soon as Oct. 30, the people said.”

PS One of the largest union employers in Springfield, Ohio is NAVISTAR. Consider the recent engine difficulty that company has with the EPA. ($2000 fine per non compliant engine)
NAVISTAR is being sustained by a venture capitalist, Carl Icahn. I hear none of the left complaining about the rich saving their jobs.

Americans want to respect the President even if they don’t always agree with him.

Obama has shown us he is not worthy of our respect. Belittling your opponents isn’t very presidential! It reminded people of everything they dislike about him.

Obama saying he wants people to use their vote for “revenge” comes across as petty and small-minded. Its a snarky remark and it reflects poorly on him as a human being and and as the President.

We deserve better - much better. Its time for a change for our country!

This is like the “You didn’t build that!” comment all over again. The backpedaling from these campaign representatives tells me that they’ve done some short-term polling and determined that there is a devastating public backlash to that idiotic statement yesterday.

Valerie Jarrett has also been reported to have said that if Obama wins re-election she is going to enact revenge on “Everyone who was against him” Bill Maher has said that blacks know where you live and if you vote for Romney they will find you..now tell me, does that sound like people who think that Obama will win? I sure as hell don’t think so..they know that in 3 days Obama is FINISHED..all Romney will have to do is fumigate the White House since it probably smells like roaches and shame

I voted for Romney Wednesday in early voting.

I guess you could call that revenge for incompetence big spending and cowardice.

I would rather call it just plain old common sense.

Anyone voting for Obama has Zero.-—in more ways than one.

Byron York up with an article and Obama’s speech transcript. He wasn’t even talking about the jeep ad or auto bailout. Said that didn’t come until 7 minutes after the revenge remark. This presidents lies about everything.

That's why the demagogue sat in a Church where America was "damned" for 20 years! He was just there to put a reasonable explanation on it.

Look, is it a coincidence that Obama used the Hitler techniques for whipping up crowds in 2008; including the stadium speech tactic--designed to give the impression of massive, monolithic & unstoppable support--for his acceptance of the nomination;--and now employs the same type of scape-goating technique that the Austrian Socialist employed to take over Germany, focusing on blaming 1% of the population, for our problems, etc..

There is nothing really open & straight-forward about this demagogue. He employs the methodology of totalitarian European Socialists to a purpose. The same purpose displayed in his huge array of Executive Orders--beyond anything ever contemplated in America before. He is ready for a Reichstag moment, and God deliver us from this would be tyrant, if we do not manage to deliver ourselves next Tuesday.
