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:
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.
