Obama: Voting is the best revenge


LINK

quote:

The old Divider-In-Chief returned with a vengeance when in the middle of an attack on Mitt Romney he told a crowd at a campaign rally to stop booing and, " Vote! Voting's the best revenge!" What he obviously meant was that voting is the best revenge against Mitt Romney.


Romney:
quote:

"Did you see what President Obama said today?" Mitt Romney asked the crowd of 30,000 at his evening rally. "He asked his supporters to vote 'for revenge'--'for revenge.' Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country."

re: Obama: Voting is the best revenge


fricking despicable.... Our President truly is a partisan piece of shite. I tried to respect him as long as I could, mainly for the office, but in the last year, that has completely changed.


Has there ever been a more divisive President? And I'm not talking on policy, I'm talking about on sure arrogance and shite throwing.

I've been wondering the same thing, Zach.

Revenge against anyone who disagrees with Him?

Revenge against successful, rich people?

Revenge against (GASP!) white people?

Yeah, there's no way to really interpret that comment any other way. It's probably a combination if those. Rich white people who disagree with him and his commie view and British hate he inherited from his father.

The Bots will be here soon to tell you this isn't what he said, what you read wasn't real, and this is because the media is biased.

Trying to stay apolitical on this, but "revenge" for WHAT?

I am sick of being accused of crimes I have not committed. Why should someone want revenge against me?

quote:

MENTOR, Ohio—A campaign aide moved to explain President Barack Obama's comment in which he referred to voting as "the best revenge," saying that Obama was referring in part to a television ad Mitt Romney's campaign released that suggested Chrysler was planning to ship manufacturing jobs out of Ohio to China.

Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told pool reporters Saturday that the comment was made in the context of what she called Romney's "scare tactics" in the final days of the campaign.

Nice to know that the Obama campaign thinks that we are all idiots. LINK

Of course that explanation makes no sense because here are Obama's remarks, in context:

quote:

For eight years, we had a President who shared these beliefs -- a guy named Bill Clinton. (Applause.) And so our beliefs were put to the test. His economic plan asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more so we could continue to invest in our people, continue to invest in ideas and innovation, invest in our infrastructure. And at the time the Republican Congress and a Senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney --

AUDIENCE: Booo --

THE PRESIDENT: No, no, no -- don’t boo, vote. (Applause.) Vote! Voting is the best revenge.


It seems to me like he's talking about voting for Obama so that you can get revenge on the evil rich man.

Revenge? Isn't that what was common when a Mafia boss wanted "revenge" on another family? Obama is from a City that was known for Mafia "projects".

Well lets hope that the voters get their "revenge" and send the DNC a big halibut in the Wednesday Chicago newspaper.

re: Obama: Voting is the best revenge


He was speaking off the cuff at that point. Revenge was certainly not the right word, and if I felt that he truly felt that way, I'd probably stay home on election day.

He was probably struggling for a word. I'm having difficulty coming up a word to replace it with. "Voting is the best...?" What? It's obviously a poor choice of words, but I understand it in context. Don't boo, vote. That's what will actually help.
