Obama made the comment as part of a familiar speech riff; when audience members boo the mention of Romney’s name, the president habitually says, “don’t boo — vote”
On Friday in Springfield, Ohio, Obama added the phrase: “Voting is the best revenge.”
Revenge for WHAT?
Mr. President, you’re getting ugly.
The American people don’t need Mitt Romney to tell us about your failed policies, we are living IN THEM. So asking for revenge for, whatever you were talking about, Mitt Romney? is also asking for revenge on the American voters of Mitt Romney. Shame on you. That’s not how you make friends and influence people.
Romney and Ryan know this it seems, as here is there humble reply:
“In 2008, he appealed to our higher aspirations. Now, he’s appealing to lowest fears,” Ryan said before an enthusiastic crowd in a recreation center at Marietta College, located on the Muskingum River on the border with West Virginia. “Just yesterday, he was asking supporters at a rally to vote out of revenge. Mitt Romney and I are asking you to vote out of love of country.”
Good, solid answer, as if that absurdity really needed one.
But perhaps revenge is what some democrats are all about. For example a threat made by Bill Maher:
Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time Friday might have said one of the most disgraceful things uttered during the 2012 campaign season.
“If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you”
And why did Bill Maher single out black people? Did he mean now that we have a half black president in office, we’re not supposed to vote another white man in again?
And what does it matter what the gender is, or the color of one’s skin, what America needs is a qualified person who can get the job done. Obama has already proved he isn’t qualified.
If that’s not enough ‘revenge’ for you, there are also threats of riots. Great. Does this mean that if Obama is re-elected the opposing party should also riot?
***But Wait, this isn’t all***
Now, the latest quote from Valerie Jarret, Obama’s brains in his operation, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t 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 won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
Are you starting to feel THREATENED at all?
If the opposition wins, I hope their best “revenge” will be an America where ALL people can work again and our grandchildren aren’t born already owing the government $100,000 the minute their life starts.
