Romney: Vote for love of country, not revenge

posted at 11:31 am on November 3, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

ICYMI, on the campaign trail on Ohio on Friday, the president had just a few choice words about why people should get out and vote in response to rally-goers booing at the mention of Mitt Romney.

I won’t even waste a facepalm on this swing-and-a-miss, but I have to wonder: What, exactly, was the president thinking here? (I think it’s safe to guess that that was not on the teleprompter.) I realize it was meant to be a casually funny, throwaway remark, but when you’ve run such a doggedly negative campaign and people are craving that good ol’ Hopenchange spirit of days gone by, it just sounds snide and petty. This is the time in the race when you’d think both candidates would be going for an uplifting, positive tone, and “revenge” is a pretty harsh and loaded word that begs some logical questions: Revenge against whom? The GOP candidate who’s had the audacity to challenge him and his failed policies in this pesky democratic system of ours? Or, perhaps, could it be for revenge against the stagnant economy and failed policies of the last four years? That would make much more sense.

What’s more, it sets Romney up for some wholesome rejoinders, like this one:

Did you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for “revenge.” For “revenge.” Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country.

Easy peasy. This was at a mega-rally in Ohio last night, by the way, that turned up tens of thousands of supporters and included dozens of bigtime GOPers who’ll be stumping on Romney’s behalf throughout the battleground states in the closing days. Coming to a swing state near you, via CNN:

At least 40 of those surrogates appeared at the chilly outdoor rally with Romney and Ryan that drew a massive audience in the Cincinnati suburb– crowd estimates ranged from 18,000 to 30,000 – and included a performance by Kid Rock, who belted out “Born Free” from on top of a piano.

Guests included 2008 GOP presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain; Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida; House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio; and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who delivered a series of blistering zingers against the president who rallied the crowd with line after line of reasons why Obama should “resign” and faulting him for “incompetence” over the Libya consulate attacks. …

Of the GOP powerhouse Romney said, “They are about to Fan out across the entire nation to make sure we have victory on November 6, and some comic on the team has named us the Romney-Ryan Real Recovery Road Rally – I got it out – that’s R6 for short.They’re going to make sure we win. Ohio is the center place. We’re going to make sure this is the place we take. And we’re going to take back the White House.”

The narcissist:

* Feels entitled. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her unreasonable expectations for special and favourable priority treatment;

* Is “interpersonally exploitative”, i.e., uses others to achieve his or her own ends;

* Devoid of empathy. Is unable or unwilling to identify with, acknowledge, or accept the feelings, needs, preferences, priorities, and choices of others;

* Constantly envious of others and seeks to hurt or destroy the objects of his or her frustration. Suffers from persecutory (paranoid) delusions as he or she believes that they feel the same about him or her and are likely to act similarly;

* Behaves arrogantly and haughtily. Feels superior, omnipotent, omniscient, invincible, immune, “above the law”, and omnipresent (magical thinking). Rages when frustrated, contradicted, or confronted by people he or she considers inferior to him or her and unworthy.

* Sublimates aggression and holds grudges

If 0bama skipped the inauguration he would join the two Adamses and Andrew Johnson.

Adams Sr. had such a bitter fight with Jefferson that he refused to attend.

Adams Jr. had such a bitter fight with partisan Jacksonians, who smeared his character and said that he was an illegigimate president, that he refused to attend after Jackson snubbed him during the lame-duck period.

Johnson refused to attend U.S. Grant’s inaugural after the impeachment drama, in which Johnson tried to replace Stanton, Lincoln’s Secretary of War, with Grant, and then Grant backed out once Johnson had gone out on the limb, leading to Johnson’s impeachment.

All three boycotts involved intensely controversial presidents.

George W. Bush actually set the example by welcomiong the 0bamas and keeping his head up, even during the “Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey Goodbye” chants.

Here’s the key difference….. Bush was a two-termer.

The Adamses were one-termers and Johnson was a zero-termer.

Does 0bama really want to join that company?

For the rest of his life, he and Jimmy Carter will be fighting to get off the bottom rank for the last century, and Carter showed class to Reagan.

Will 0bama really seal his position as the classless president by boycotting Romney?

Maybe it will come down to whether Michelle is kept locked up until it’s over. Barack may not be calling the shots.

A former Democratic aide to Bill and Hillary Clinton is throwing her support behind Mitt Romney in the presidential election, arguing Romney can offer “bipartisan leadership.”

“I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people,” Gigi Georges, the former Executive Director of the New York State Democratic Party, said Saturday. “And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney.”

Georges, a former special assistant to President Clinton, worked on domestic policy issues for the National Economic Council. She also worked in Hillary Clinton’s senate office as state director.

“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat,” she said.

But she argued Saturday that Obama hasn’t worked well with both Republicans and Democrats.

“That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago,” she said. “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 responded to the endorsement, saying Saturday that, “I look forward to working with her and all Americans who want to move this country forward, whether they be Democrats, Republicans, or Independents.”

Mitt could put Clint Eastwood in Michelle’s chair and leave Obama’s empty for the Inauguration… he wouldn’t have to say a word…

Oh, and if that happened, I doubt that the Obama’s would get that last FREE plane ride on Air Force ONE… I’m just sayin’…

Khun Joe on November 3, 2012 at 12:16 PM

I think that the moment it becomes apparent that Obama is toast the doors of his “Pardons for Cash” operation goes into full swing. He never wants to work again (I know like he’s ever really worked right?) and his library in HI isn’t yet fully funded so my bet is that if you’ve got the cash then you’ll get a pardon, no questions asked. I’m sure the groundwork has been laid for some time in order to ensure that Barry’s future is, shall we say, comfortable.

Carter pardoned the Vietnam-War draft-dodgers on Jan. 21, 1977. I was wondering if a president can pardon whole classes of people. I think that my question is answered in that the pardons were available to individuals who asked.

I don’t think 0bama could just pardon all illegals. Pardons have to be done on an individual basis, I think. So 0bama would have to broadcast across America that any illegal border-breaker who wants to come to him and identify themselves gets a pardon.

WOuld the country stand for that? I’m not sure that 0bama wouldn’t finally be dragged out of the White House by a group of patriots, before the inauguration.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draft_evasion

Those who went abroad faced imprisonment or forced military service if they returned home. The U.S. continued to prosecute draft dodgers after the end of the Vietnam War. In September 1974, President Gerald R. Ford offered an amnesty program for draft dodgers that required them to work in alternative service occupations for periods of six to 24 months.[29] In 1977, one day after his inauguration, President Jimmy Carter fulfilled a campaign promise by offering pardons to anyone who had evaded the draft and requested one. It antagonized critics on both sides, with the right complaining that those pardoned paid no penalty and the left complaining that requesting a pardon required the admission of a crime.[30]

This Election is going to be a match up between the white vote vs. the minority vote. For Obama, this election is about Demographics and gender. For Romney it’s about running up the white vote. Unlike 2010, black and latino will get out and vote…and it will all come to turn out.

It’s very unfortunate to what’s going on in America but the more Democrats turn to minorities (blacks, latino, Asians) and Republicans turn to the majority white, every presidential Election will be a struggle…

White women are the tiebreaker (especially unmarried white women who tend to lean Democrat for whatever reason)

The most amazing thing to me is that article was written in 2008, before he was even elected, but it reads like a script that the boy king has followed line by line.

And this may very well show why we have reason to be concerned about what he might do between Tuesday and Jan, 20th if he loses.

The pacific mask crumbles when the narcissist has become convinced that the very people he purported to speak for, his constituency, his grassroots fans, the prime sources of his narcissistic supply – have turned against him. At first, in a desperate effort to maintain the fiction underlying his chaotic personality, the narcissist strives to explain away the sudden reversal of sentiment. “The people are being duped by (the media, big industry, the military, the elite, etc.)”, “they don’t really know what they are doing”, “following a rude awakening, they will revert to form”, etc.

When these flimsy attempts to patch a tattered personal mythology fail – the narcissist is injured. Narcissistic injury inevitably leads to narcissistic rage and to a terrifying display of unbridled aggression. The pent-up frustration and hurt translate into devaluation. That which was previously idealized – is now discarded with contempt and hatred.

This primitive defense mechanism is called “splitting”. To the narcissist, things and people are either entirely bad (evil) or entirely good. He projects onto others his own shortcomings and negative emotions, thus becoming a totally good object. A narcissistic leader is likely to justify the butchering of his own people by claiming that they intended to kill him, undo the revolution, devastate the economy, or the country, etc.

I just looked at some of the Cincy rally photos. They brought a tear to my eye.

This last weekend before a presidential election brings to a head the human faces of the Founders’ grand experiment. Flags, babies, signs, Romney with a red nose from the cold…..

We are about to see if the Founders’ vision still holds true in the hearts of the nation.

Given the nonstop disregard for the Constitution for four years, this is gut-check time.

The Founders have awoken, as they do every four years, and are watching…. one eye turned toward Benjamin Franklin at the head of the table…

“…a Republic, if you can keep it.”

God Bless America. Let us pray that there are enough true hearts left to beat back this flood tide of deceit and ignorance that has led us to a national precipice, the worst, in opinion, since November, 1860.

If we’re lucky, he will sulk for the next couple of months. At some point he’s going to realize he didn’t want the gig for another 4 years…not being held accountable or expected to actually work will become appealing.

He knows this. It’s the Dem party that will be most angry. BO is a lazy incompetent who knows he (and MO) can make more money out of the WH with less effort. Ultimately, I really believe that’s what he cares about most.

Just think….. he can smoke and choom without anyone beotching at him! ;)

The Executive Orders that are bothering me are the ones that pick and choose which laws to enforce and which laws to ignore…. for the purposes of furthering a political agenda.

What has been happening in Arizona is chilling, and must never be allowed again.

The idea of a border state being overrun by invaders from another sovereign nation and then trying to enforce federal law because the feds refuse to, and then the resources of the nation used to sue that state because it enforced the law, and then the sheriff of one of the hardest hit counties not only kicked out of the federal enforcement ambit but then personally sued for violating illegals’ rights……

This is Nazi/Soviet territory, truly. It is an embarrassment to the founding ideals of the United States of America.

It is tyranny… brought on by executive order from a Caligulan/Neroan chief executive.

Just stood in line w/ the hubby for 2 hours to vote in Florida AND turned in my daughter’s absentee ballot. That’s another 3 in the R/R column.

On Tuesday I just want to turn on the TV and see all the Obama buttsmoocher media gasping at the masses of Republican voters willing to wait hours in line to oust Obama. I can vote early, but I want to be part of that.

BettyRuth on November 3, 2012 at 12:29 PM

Me too. Huckabee was on Fox and Friends this morning. He said he fully expects the Republican turnout on Tuesday to catch the leftist and the media off guard, just like Chick-Fil-A day did. Oh how I pray he is right.

My wife, nephew and myself voted RR yesterday. My nephews first ever vote (age) and everybody clapped when the poll worker announced that. Nevada is in play.

VegasRick on November 3, 2012 at 12:42 PM

Cool.

I am wondering why a poll worker would announce something private like that. Can you give more context? Is your area Romney-leaning?

And how far are you from the big population centers, i.e. Vegas and Reno?

cane_loader on November 3, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Obviously a stupid question given that your nic is “VegasRick”

/doh!

Harry Reid hardest hit… in the butt with a telephone poll… o_O

Wonder if the Obama’s will finally get around to selecting a local Washington, DC, church to attend.

Thought they told everybody in January 2009 that they’d be looking for a nice church locally.

They lie, even when it comes to simple worship.

(But, at least they are BFF’s with Beyonce and Jay-Z. Right? Think the Wagyu, Kristal and Bling crowd will dump Barry once he gets soundly thrashed and defeated on Tuesday?)

As far as churches go, pretty sure the Romney’s have one already picked out.

I think he’s right. I don’t think even us as Republicans are ready for the turnout.

It’s going to be a good day.

gophergirl on November 3, 2012 at 12:46 PM

There’s a lot of chatter on the net about ‘riots’ if The DogEater loses.

Of course the internet is mostly a bunch of BS but you have to wonder – will they riot in places like LA?

CorporatePiggy on November 3, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Now I find myself wondering how Newt Gingrich (my final choice after Palin and Cain) would have been doing at this point.

Would he have blown 0bama out in the debates? Would he have self-destructed? WOuld he have stayed cool enough to look like a safe alternative (which is what Reagan did)?

Bet Newt is having the same thoughts.

I applaud Mitt for running a pretty stable, steady campaign, with few real, non-MSM created, gaffes.

Of course he will vacation and party, that’s all he’s done for four years, but the merdivorous Valerie Jarrett won’t. Little Bammie will sign anything she drops on the coffee table in the ESPN TV room.

In Vegas. Live in the burbs and there all kinds of people at the polls. My nephew looks young (just turned 18) and I guess the poll worker was proud to announce that it was his first chance. It happened a few years ago with my wife as well, her first (not because of age) was in 2000 just after we married.

VegasRick on November 3, 2012 at 12:49 PM

gophergirl on November 3, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Speaking of good days, what time is the rally in MN?

You must be excited! Our state is a lock for Romney, so we’re left out.

Cody1991 on November 3, 2012 at 12:49 PM

Did you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for “revenge.” For “revenge.” Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country.

Awesome! Give ‘im Hell, Mitt!

ghostwriter on November 3, 2012 at 12:50 PM

I have a thought about Las Vegas voters.

Yes, you have a lot of artistic types who are 0bama’s bread-and-butter.

But I have friends, and know of a lot more people, who migrated from L.A. to Vegas in the late-’90s/early-’00s because L.A. got invaded by a foreign country, and the population pressures changed the opportunities and also the quality of life…

These folks struck out for Vegas because they were unhappy with what L.A. had become, under liberal leadership, and because it was a great, bustling business opportunity to work hard and reap the rewards…. a basically conservative position.

I can’t help but think that a significant percentage of these L.A. ex-pats are actually conservative.

gophergirl on November 3, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Yep. He was so proud! I told him it reminded me of my first vote – voted for RR just like him voting R/R and getting rid of a one term disaster.

VegasRick on November 3, 2012 at 12:51 PM

That response was quick and clever. Who says that Romney is out of touch? The revenge statement just adds to the proof that Obama is not in it for America.

DAT60A3 on November 3, 2012 at 11:35 AM

Obama and a good chunk of his supporters are haters, viewing elections and politics as opportunities to settle scores.

3:30. I actually think my parents are more excited than I am. They have e-mailed me like 20 times since yesterday. Can’t blame them – they are scared for their grandchildren.

Woo hoo – another Pro Romney ad. Crossroads this time.
