The Romney campaign ripped President Obama after the president suggested Friday that supporters take "revenge" by voting against the Republican nominee.

During a speech in Springfield, Ohio, Obama talked about the Clinton administration and its economic plan that "asked the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more." Then he mentioned Mitt Romney, drawing boos from the crowd.

Last night in Ohio Mitt urged people to vote out of love for country rather than Obama’s proposed revenge.

We need an ad of Romney’s retort to Obama’s “vote for revenge” - 15 secs on national TV. It encapsulates the differences between the optimistic and competent Romney and the pessimistic and incompetent Marxist.

For any politician to try to sell the “vote out of revenge” message tells a story of a hateful and desperate situation.

Obama’s subliminal messaging is that if Romney wins, then his peeps should take revenge in violent actions.

GOD WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY IN THIS ELECTION!

17 Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. 18 Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.

19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say,

“I will take revenge;
I will pay them back,”[g]
says the Lord.

Why does “revenge” even come to mind? Booing when a candidate mentions his opponent is of course common and probably goes back hundreds of years, but i doubt if it has ever provoked this type of rejoinder. Makes me wonder if Obama has been contemplating some sort of revenge if/when he loses. If so, against Romney or America?

Just saw Mitt’s NH speech on FOX - he addressed it and said revenge was not a helpful way to vote 9not his exact words) and he asked people to vote for love of country. I wasn’t pleased when he became our only choice, but the longer this goes on, the happier I am that he’s our guy.

The thing is fear the most is a defeated Obama with the remaining few weeks he’ll have in office. There is NO TELLING what this creep will do. He WILL undoubtedly take his revenge on America in some manner. It’s how he thinks ...like a thug.

Very frightening times. Someone will have to watch him every minute.

It's unbelievable that Obama said that. And it's great that Romney is capitalizing on it.

Revenge is never a good motivation. It's poisonous.

Who do they take revenge on??? Their neighbor? Their employer?? They can’t take revenge on the gov’t. They want more of it. The taxpayers?? This guy has nothing to say, so it’s just babble. Whatever Community Organizer phrase he can think of.

Apparantly, Valerie Jarrett is talking about pay-back too. Are they going to kill Republicans pets and the pets of people that exposed them. What do they mean by this. So un-American.

He has grown into the role. He sounded very Reaganesque last night. I have high hopes that there will be enough of a win by Romney on Tuesday to beat the margin for fraud.

Wasn’t he urging his supporters to “punish their enemies” during the 2010 election? Sounds like a third world thug to me.

Valerie Jarrett is talking about pay-back too.

In a very strident tone. Obama is taking her lead.

Jarrett's comment to her staff ...

Jarrett told them, “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.
BR 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.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all.
