CINCINNATI — A seemingly offhand utterance from President Obama has turned into a major point of contention between the two campaigns, as Team Obama tries to explain what the president meant when he told a crowd of supporters that “Voting is the best revenge.”

According to a White House pool report, Psaki said Obama had been speaking in the context of Romney’s “scare tactics” in Ohio.


Its always the fault of “the Other Guy” with Obama. Like McCain made me give him the finger.

Yeah Barry - you stepped all over it!

After Chris Christie gave you a comeback opportunity, you threw it all away with one of those snarky remarks for which you have become infamous.

Keep on explaining what you really meant. Frankly, we’d just as soon see you off on Tuesday - it won’t be long now before you can put that in your next autobiography!

From time-to-time, off his TelePrompTer, Obama's true self comes blazing out for all to see, i.e. "bitter clingers," etc.

In these last few hours, this is happening again, especially, as "the one" is forced to keep a vigorous schedule and go to such small places where he thought he'd already put his numbers over.

This must surely anger him, as in his mind, he is entitled to his position for as long as he desires!

The “Revenge” ad put together by the Romney campaign is great. I saw it on youtube. I’m wondering if anyone has seen it on television.

How can the Marxist and his Minions possibly complain about the “Revenge Ad” when they called Romney a murderer and felon who doesn’t pay his taxes? Guess who’s getting the last laugh?

that implies Hussein will write it himself, which is doubtful. I wonder who he will get to write it? Also, you heard it here first; within a year, Hussein will be outed or will come out himself..

Hang around enough black folks long enough and you'll hear parts of this discussion about what might be the "best revenge" ~ Justice Thomas' friends have said "living well is the best revenge" ~ but I have no idea what Thomas had to say on the matter, but he's married to a white lady, eats well, gets paid regularly in the high figures AND has a job where you can sit down.

No doubt he's aware of the phenomenon.

When you drift over toward the Trinity CofC crowd it takes a different tack and becomes a tad more bitter ~ I think more to justify engaging in bill collecting from poor black people in Chicago ~ place is full of lawyers sharpening their street cred.

I've heard that expression tossed around for years in a variety of ways ~ BUT I don't recall anyone ever saying that "voting is the best revenge".

Maybe it is ~ maybe it isn't ~ but notice what the focus is on in this thread ~ to wit: "REVENGE".

The content of that revenge has not been discussed yet that's the part where the entertainment comes from.

I've been telling you all along this fellow Obama is stupid ~ so stupid in fact he could mess up a metaphor ~ which he just did.

Don't tell him because he can't understand.

A wise-ass, never-had-a-real-job bigot with a chip on his shoulder dropped his mask on the stage of an event attended by members of the perpetually angry and envious party. What's to explain?

what does he mean revenge anyway, what one arth woudl they wanting revenge for?
Is he talking to blacks about slavery over 150 years ago, I mean who th ehell is he talking to and what does he mean?

obama is an angry bitter man who hates America beiong powerful, hates white rich people or even people with Euro family background.

he;s been in power for 4 years and things are worse, he had total control for two years and forced socialism health care on to us.

I honestly think he and his wife will lose it and not leave our white house right away,and you can count on things being stolen.

First thing Romney needs to do is to put the bust back and remove all the crap he and his wife have put in the white house.
Then he unseals oabma’s records for all to see

"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.

And don't forget Biden's oh so clever joke that "tonight's the night we turn our clocks back- Mitt Romney's favorite time of year". These two jack asses have got to be quite the embarrassment for way-cool hip-talking dudes like Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Madonna, David Letterman etc. to be constantly sucking up to and defending. They both are an embarrassment to me just to read what they say every day and I don't even like them.

I’ll take love of country over “wanting revenge” anyday.

To want revenge is just an unhealthy way to be, an unhealthy thing to want.

You have to add a temporal component to this. Only those weathy who supported the opposition will be immediate targets of revenge. Weathy who proved cooperative will eventually be eaten too—they’ll just be eaten last.

Wait until Obusturd exacts his revenge on the 50% of the country that didn’t vote for him.

He has 3 mos if he loses and 4 years if he wins.

GOP nominee Mitt Romney began his final weekend campaign blitz in New Hampshire Saturday morning, ripping President Obama for telling supporters that “voting is the best revenge.”

“Vote for revenge? Let me tell you: Vote for love of country,” Romney said to cheers.

Obama made the remark at a Friday rally after supporters booed Romney. “No, no, no. Don’t boo. Vote,” Obama told a crowd in Springfield, Ohio. “Voting is the best revenge.”

The GOP nominee jumped on the comment later that day, and his campaign released an ad attacking the president for it Saturday morning.

I think this is closer:

What he meant was revenge against whitey.

Oh, I've heard the phrase, "Living well is the best revenge," plenty of times.

I believe that the Duchess of Windsor (Wallis Simpson, the divorced American married to the once King of England, before he stepped down, making his brother George the King, who fathered Elizabeth, now Queen) that was in regard to people not wishing you well.

The fact that those words slipped out of Obama's mouth, inferred quite a different meaning - that "his people" should vote to keep "whitey" out of power, to keep him in charge, so that he can keep on "sticking it to the man" each and every day, as he has been since Jan. 20th, 2009, as "revenge" for them!

Those words and phrases are straight out of the playbook of Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao and every other revolutionary since time immemorial.

The only difference between them is that they wouldn't wait for revenge through an election, they'd force one through a revolution! I'm not certain that Obama and his ilk wouldn't dismiss just that we're he to lose power, especially by much of a squeaker.

That's why this election should be a landslide to let him know that he'd best not be thinking that he can hold on to power, as I'm certain he thinks would be warranted.

I have no doubt every game of golf, "vacation to the Taj Mahal" or thousands of dollars for items of clothes are just their way of "getting revenge" on white people both Obama's believe owe it to them.

We were at a used bookstore a couple of months ago and my husband bought Bullfinch’s Mythology for our Grand Nephew (11 years old). He spent the weekend with me and I gave him the book. He has been getting a lot of liberal propaganda about Obama in school. I said that Obama was a Narcissist and he asked me what that meant.... gave him the book and pointed out the legend of Narcissus and Echo....
