Quotes of the day

posted at 8:31 pm on November 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Speaking to an audience, he said, you know voting is the best revenge,” said Romney. “He told his supporters, voting for revenge. Vote for revenge?

“Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: Vote for love of country,” he said. “It is time we lead America to a better place.”

***

Asked about the revenge kerfuffle, Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, “Mitt Romney is ending this campaign with scare tactics in Ohio with a fake ad about the auto industry,” she said, referring to an ad assailed by automakers as false, one suggesting that Jeep jobs in the U.S. are being sent to China. “The President was simply suggesting if you think the American people deserve better and if you believe the President is offering a better deal for the middle class you have the power to cast your vote.”

***

It was an ugly and small-minded moment, especially for the end of a campaign when candidates usually try to stress larger, optimistic themes. Romney incorporated the “revenge” line in his speech in Ohio Friday night, saying that while Obama advises revenge, he, Romney, wants people to vote “for love of country.”

As Obama traveled to northern Ohio Saturday morning, campaign official Jen Psaki was asked about the “revenge” remark. According to a White House pool report, Psaki said Obama had been speaking in the context of Romney’s “scare tactics” in Ohio. The Republican is “frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job,” Psaki said, according to the pool report…

The problem is, the president was actually not speaking in the context of Romney’s highly-controversial ads about bailed-out Chrysler adding production of Jeeps in China. In fact, Obama had not said a word about the Jeep controversy when he said “revenge.”

***

Hard to believe that the guy who promised to “punish our enemies” is now talking about voting for “revenge.”

If you watch the clip itself, it’s not clear at all what Obama’s supporters are supposed to want revenge for. Obama mentions Romney name in the context of his run for the senate in Massachusetts — back when Romney was quite the moderate — and the audience starts to boo. Obama says “no, no. Don’t boo. Vote. Vote. Voting is the best revenge.” Revenge for what? Him running for the senate? Revenge for Romney daring to challenge Obama? I understand Obama is bitter. That’s been obvious for a while. But it’s just a weird and narcissistic assumption that his supporters want “revenge” too. Doesn’t mean it’s wrong, though. Which makes the whole thing even creepier.

***

That’s the best he can do? “Voting is the best revenge”? And against whom should voters seek “revenge” — other Americans? A candidate who has the support of about half the electorate? It is mind-boggling, really, that this sort of snide, negative motivation is what President Obama has saved up for his final appeal.

But that’s really been the story of his campaign all along. Carpet-bomb Mitt Romney with negative ads during the summer and then make the last week of the campaign about Big Bird, “Romnesia” and “binders full of women.” He apparently has given up on luring independent, less-partisan voters (Romney leads by double digits among independents, most pollsters say). In his yearning to turn out his base he must imagine that those voters bear as much animus against his opponents as he does. But of course that’s not how he turned out his base last time. Then it was hope and change; now Romney is the hope and change candidate.

***

“Just yesterday he was asking his supporters at a rally to vote out of revenge,” Ryan said to about 1,000 people at the college gymnasium. “Mitt Romney and I are asking you to vote out of love of country. That’s what we do in this country. We don’t believe in revenge.”

Ryan then co-opted the president’s famous slogan, changing it slightly:

“We believe in change and hope. We actually do,” Ryan said. “In 2008 President Obama made all these lofty promises, it sounded so good. He said that we would have bi-partisanship, that he’d bridge the gap. He said he’d cut the deficit in half, that he’d get people working again, and he’d create jobs. You see all those jobs here in Marietta? Look, it sounded good and when he got elected people naturally expected him to deliver those results but it didn’t happen and look what we got. Washington is more divided than it ever has been before. And the deficit, it doubled from what he said it would be.”

***

Mitt Romney has been making a pitch for bipartisanship in the closing days of the race, and this morning rolled out an endorsement from Hillary Clinton’s former Senate state director, Gigi Georges:

“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat. I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.”

***

Romney, whatever else you think about him, is somebody who has fed the hungry, clothed the naked, and visited the sick. In Mr. Whedon’s view of the world, none of that dirty-handed business is necessary: All that is necessary is that one cast a symbolic vote for the man who promises to care, and to express that care by expropriating money from people you don’t like and giving it to people for whom you have a moral concern that is at best theoretical. That is the cheapest form of charity, which surely would occur to Mr. Whedon and his admirers, if they ever took the time to think about it. Fortunately for President Obama, they have shown neither the inclination nor the ability to do so.

For the Dumb Vote, voting is simply an expression of affiliation, a way of marking one’s membership in the tribe of the compassionately ironic or ironically compassionate or whatever. It is a gesture for people who are absolutely certain that they are right — not because they have any meaningful information, but because they are absolutely certain that the other side is evil, which is why they so quickly and consistently revert to claims of racism against a movement that includes lots of non-white partisans, claims of misogyny against a movement that includes an enormous number of women, claims of aspiring Christian theocracy against a movement that includes a great many non-Christians and that is noted for its affinity with the Jewish state, etc.

In the beginning when he was elected, I didn’t think that I could think of him as “my” president. Smarter men than me like Jim Treacher said that was sophomoric and I agree. Since he was Commander in Chief for the last two years I was in the Army, I tried to maintain a standard in which I addressed him. Here for the longest time I always referred to him as President Obama and never any names.

I feel like that was such a waste of effort on a man who did not deserve that. From any of us. He is not presidential and not a man look up to. He is a disgrace to the office. A liar and subversive to what made this country great.

He is beneath contempt for saying that revenge is what should motivate people to vote against Mitt Romney.

Whether through this election or impeachment, we cannot rid ourselves of him fast enough.

hawkdriver on November 3, 2012 at 8:39 PM

Revenge for a sexist, racist capitalist system built upon the exploitation of the working class. Er, non-working class.

“Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: Vote for love of country,” he said. “It is time we lead America to a better place.”

This unforced error from Obama does nothing to change the narrative in my opinion. Good to pump up the base but nothing more. His PA hail Mary is also a move a little too late. He should have gone all in in PA the same week he won that first debate.

It’s nothing less than bare-faced lying.

Did I see correctly on another thread. You are neither conservative nor rethuglican?

Lanceman on November 3, 2012 at 9:00 PM

I doubt we’ll see a stupid lecturn with “Office of the President-Elect” emblazoned on it with Mitt elected.

freedomfirst on November 3, 2012 at 8:53 PM

I would love to see it … just to watch liberal heads explode …

Nevermind.

He is beneath contempt for saying that revenge is what should motivate people to vote against Mitt Romney.

Whether through this election or impeachment, we cannot rid ourselves of him fast enough.

hawkdriver on November 3, 2012 at 8:39 PM

.
I will never call him President – he is the most despicable person to ever hold the office.

I struggle to use his surname because it can be interpreted as a sign of respect and he deserves NONE.

He IS a SCOAMF and having been revealed to the world by Mitt Romney on October 3rd, he has intentionally LOWERED the level of politics of his campaign.

I just did an astrological chart for Obama and guess what? It is almost identical to one I did for George Armstrong Custer for June 25, 1876.

The d+8 to d+12 polls better be wrong. That’s all I got to say.

@gopher girl, I have to applaud you for not buying champagne, or Grey Goose, or a nice Chianti! You go straight for the ” two big bottles of booze”. You go, sistah!! I’m going to use booze to celebrate the end of Obama myself!

BettyRuth on November 3, 2012 at 8:58 PM

Hee hee.

gophergirl on November 3, 2012 at 9:02 PM

This makes me the most angry of the whole comment. Messina is purposely tweeting as if Romney had injected the word into his rhetoric, not that he was commenting about Obama’s speech. How much lower can they go?

It’s nothing less than bare-faced lying.

hawkdriver on November 3, 2012 at 8:52 PM
Before you get too upset, are you really worried about this getting out to people who are twitter followers of jim messina … voluntarily?

Lost in Jersey on November 3, 2012 at 8:55 PM

No. But listen to the news on CBS radio. The economy is soaring because “it wasn’t as bad as projections” The unemployment number are positive because “more jobs were added than expected” (even though it was less than needed to increase the overall unemployment number to a position higher than when Obama took office. Four dead Americans in Benghazi and a coverup and no mention. The President was touring with Christie to survey the damage and “Romney returned to the campaign trail criticizing the president”. There’s no mention of AL Utility workers being returned by Unions in Jersey while the US Taxpayer foots the bill for STRAT AIR to fly Union Utility rigs from California. I just hat ethe news.

If a Republican had said vote for revenge, the election would be over.

ROMNEY: “Settle down. You ripped your Mom jeans.”
