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.”

Ozero has been exacting revenge on America for 4 years. How the people in his little crowd can cheer him on is beyond me. FEMA had a week to get stuff into position before the storm hit. They did nothing. Has Doomberg even opened any shelters yet? Maybe he should call Jindal to get some emergency pointers.

I think it is to late in the game now for Gov. Romney to bring this up but I just read that there has been a plan in the works to build a barrier to protect NYC from flooding like the one that was build in St. Petersburg. Apparently it is suppose cost $10 billion.. Now it seems to me that if Odumbass had spent some of his $800 billion Porkulous on this and maybe an upgrade on the grid, he might has a case of reelection. Instead all he did was give money to contributors so they could declare bankruptcy and leave the American taxpayer holding the bag. He really needs to go away.

Cindy Munford on November 3, 2012 at 3:58 PM

The tragedy of the black family today is almost as bad as the destitution of the 1870s.

A president – of any color – who can honestly try to address and rebuild the black family- would be my hero. I don’t like seeing my fellow citizens sunk into the sorry state that so much of black America has fallen into. I want to see them lifted up, and then to lift themselves up.

That. Shovel ready projects, riiiight….Money spent (wasted) to pay back his bundlers for most part. The US grid is antiquated to say the least, power connections shoud be burried underground, and it should have been done a long time ago for large portions /sections, especially in areas that are likely to get tropical storms, hurricanes, etc. The costs of putting the cables underground is undeniably high, but he coud have used the money wasted on Solyndra and all hose failed ‘green’ projects to modernize the power grid. It really is surreal what’s happening with our power grid.

The problem with the black-grievance mentality is that actually, in the ’60s, they had made huge strides. Yet instead of focusing on workiong hard and enjoying the new-found equality, college professors and race-shillers found a way to make a living by recycling the past grievances, instead of buckling down to hard work.

There are some PPP polls the last two days that I find very interesting.

MA Obama +15 (won by 26 in 08)
OR Obama +6 (won by 16 in 08)
WA Obama +7 (won by 17 in 08)
CT Obama +12 (won by 22 in 08)

Obama is bleeding support in all these deeply blue states by 10% or more, but we are supposed to believe he’s built support in redder states like Ohio, Virginia, and Florida? It is absolutely absurd.

New Non-Scientific (it’s online) C-BS “poll” out of their Minneapolis Affiliate:

Did President Obama’s handling of Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath;

Help his chances of re-election

Hurt his chance of re-election

Have no effect on his chances of re-election

So far, the results are:

25.33% say it will help his chances of re-election

40.17% say it will hurt his chances of re-election

34.5% say it will have no effect on his chances of re-election.

Must be that thing about FEMA running out of water, or something!

So, I have to tell this.

Today I got up at 4am to early vote. I figured if I got there at 7am I could get in and out. No chance. There was no place to park, so we (me and my parents) walked 1/2 mile and then stood in line for 2 hours. Obama people were prevalent, setting up free cookie tables — NO TAKERS. Everyone just sort of stood there, not saying much.

This afternoon I was driving past again and the line was just as long as it was at 7am.

I think this is going to be a landslide for Romney.

What I think he would do would be to express sympathy for the rioters’ motivations… how they felt that justice had been denied… subtly undercutting Romney’s legitimacy, and never make a firm call to quell the riots.

That’s what they are doing in France right now, businesses are busy leaving, in drones…75% tax, insanely unpalatable even the fashion industry moguls (the luxury industry being one of the few that makes and brings real money and jobs to France) like Karl Lagerfeld and the Louis Vuitton CEO declared Hollande to be insane. Lagerfeld actually said in an interview that Hollande is destroying France’s economy. But as you said, they call him crazy, and then they leave. Bernard Arnault, the Louis Vuitton chief and the richest man in France ‘coincidentally’ applied for Belgian citizenship a few weeks before Hollande announced his tax hike on the rich (after he campaigned and was elected on that). So, where does that leave you revenue-wise if you, as a leader of a country, bank it all on the rich paying more…they won’t pay more, and they know it and we know it. they will leave, but not pay. To me it just shows how disturbed and disconneced from reality these socialists are….

jimver on November 3, 2012 at 5:38 PM

He can sink the economy and campaign and golf and vacation a great deal
But taking any responsibly for anything to him just does not appeal
He has less class than the back of a twisted hack
When he cries for anyone but himself the tears run down his back
If he would just take responsibility sometime somewhere
The MSM frogs would probably give him the Croix-de-Guerre
He has profound delusions and spews such a crock
On him complete madness will soon have a full head lock
He has so many pathologies it would make Freud’s knees knock
And when on November 6 he loses the face he makes will stop a cuckoo clock
You might forget his incessant lies and grating yell
But you’ll never forget the President from Hell

Here are where both candidates and VP’s have gone today and will go the next couple days. Obama’s schedule is unknown for the 5th though I didn’t really look that hard.

Obama

Nov 3
Mentor, OH
Milwaukee, WI
Dubuque, IA
Bristow, VA
Biden: Arvada, CO
Biden: Pueblo, CO

Nov 4
Concord, NH (Why?)
Hollywood, FL (why?)
Cincinnati, OH
Denver, CO (why?)
Biden: Lakewood, OH
Biden: Fremont, OH
Biden: Lancaster, OH

Nov 5 (mostly unknown)
Bill Clinton: 4 events in PA

Romney
Nov 3
Newington, NH
Dubuque, IA (Obama follows Romney in this city)
Colorado Springs, CO w/ Ann
Englewood, CO w/ Ann
Paul: Panama City, FL

Nov 4
Des Moines, IA
Cleveland, OH
Morrisville, PA
Newport News, VA (new)
Paul: Mansfield, OH
Paul: Saint Paul, MN
Paul: Castle Rock, CO

Nov 5
Sanford, FL (new)
Lynchburg, VA
Fairfax, VA (new)
Columbus, OH w/ Ann
Manchester, NH
Paul: Reno, NV (NEVADA!!!)
Paul: Johnstown, CO
Paul: Des Moines, IA
Paul: Vienna, OH
Paul: Milwaukee, WI

It appears that most of Obama’s events are wasted on the 4th. I like how Ryan is going to MN and NV. NV isn’t lost yet. In fact, if turnout is good for GOP, it could very likely be an upset. Paul finished in OH and WI. Romney finishes in FL, VA, OH and NH (near Boston).

You can always tell who’s winning with where they are going. Romney and Ryan are trying to secure their leads and get gains in other areas. What is Obama doing?

MrX on November 3, 2012 at 5:48 PM

On Nov. 7th, Thank a Catholic: Obama’s support among Catholics has collapsed. BONUS – only 45 attend “Catholics for Obama” rally and bishops are having priests read letters this Sunday specifically touching on “religious freedom”.

Doubt me not when I say: MASSIVE LANDSLIDE.

Some young people and young families without kids do move though, England is just across the channel and at least they are protecting the City there, through a set of policies that insulate them from the fiscal insanity and the money blackhole that is the EU, the financial industry being pretty much all that’s left of the UK and their only big asset….

I have no idea who or what Ralston is but the article seems to indicate that Republicans still have the advantage in early voting.

Popping out of lurkerdom:

Here’s what gumbo isn’t showing from his D.M. Hawkins @HawkinsUSA tweets:

Cutahoga clear indication of Dem cannibalization, which is why I think he wins there. Trend seems same in NV, but decent final day 1 hour ago

NV not a state Romney needs, which is why he only made the one appearance. But, still within the realm of possibility 1 hour

GOP turnout actually topped Dem turnout in 16 of 17 counties. Of course, that 1 Dem county (Carson City/Vegas) enough to give Dems 67K adv. 1 hour

Cuya OH (Dem main stronghold): with Sat numbers in and 2 short early vote days left, Dems still short -10% of 08 output. Republicans up +40% 1 hour

Every indicator points to a Romney OH win Except the top lines of polls showing historic Dem turnout advantage that hasn’t materialized. 3 hours

I haz Twitter too…

Actually, early voting wrapped up today, and Dems ended up 7% ahead of Republicans in ballots cast. 70% of voting is done in the early period there. It would take a miracle for there to be the kind of election day turnout to overcome those numbers.

But don’t let reality get in the way.

gumbyandpokey on November 3, 2012 at 6:18 PM

It ended yesterday. And it’s not 70%, it’s 50%. Of that, there are independents breaking for Romney. Obama has about a 45K lead. If Obama’s turnout isn’t what it was in 2008, he loses NV.

But don’t let facts get in the way.

Oh, you want more facts? How about the state of NV’s actual site?

http://nvsos.gov/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=2500

Oh oh.

The Dem advantage is 47964. Dems needed 80K to assure victory. GOP needed less than a 30K victory to assure victory. It’s between 30K and 80K. So if the GOP finds 18K more votes than in 2008 or Dems show up less than in 2008, GOP wins.

So sorry to disappoint you. I know how often you’re right (never).

MrX on November 3, 2012 at 6:38 PM

The cold, hard facts are that Obama is getting far less early voters than in 2008 and Romney is getting significantly more than McCain received. All signs point to a huge Republican turnout on election day and a smaller Democrat one than four years ago. Considering that Obama barely eked out a victory in Ohio four years ago, most expect Obama to lose the state this time.

Obama has stumbled and bumbled in the closing days of the campaign. He regularly draws much smaller crowds than Romney and he gave Romney a huge gift at just the right time with the “revenge” comment.

Ka-Boom! Atomic Heartache!

President Obama this morning ignored a reporter’s question about the mounting frustration victims of Hurricane Sandy are having with the response to the storm, refusing to let a question from the press interrupt a FEMA photo op in which he was on display taking action.

An excerpt from the press pool report, which starts with a quote from Obama:

“There is nothing more important than us getting this right. And we’re going to spend as much time, effort and energy as necessary to make sure all the people of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut know that the entire country is behind them in this difficult recovery effort.”

He spoke for about five minutes. Pool asked about frustrations of people, particularly Staten Island. He did not respond.

I thought NYC was supposed to be the most “sophisticated” city in the nation. This is worse than Katrina IMO.

Don’t you think if you were Mayor you would have about 6 emergency plans drawn up for a situation like this. You would have every contingency planned for.

But hey Bloomberg turned down the National Guard in Brooklyn because they had big bad scary guns.

There will come a day, very soon, when we hear the word Obama and everybody laughs.

Like when you trip and fall… OMG, you just did an obama.

Or when you dine and dash… OMG you just pulled an obama.

Or when you get foodstamps for no reason… OMG you just pulled an obama.

Or when you make a riot in a convenience store: OMG they just pulled an obama.

Or when ….

Unless the GOP wins the senate a Romney victory won’t make a lot difference over the next two years. Without the senate in GOP hands Marxist care will be here to stay. Even if the GOP wins the senate I have doubts it will be repealed.

It may only be a matter of time before a financial collapse happens anyway. Thanks to the Marxist in chief and his intentional destructive policies a president Romney may be powerless to prevent it.

What’s truly sad is the mass of idiots who think everything good comes in the form of government money stolen from their fellow citizens.

FEMA has run out of water for Sandy victims

This is becoming a humanitarian disaster.

“FEMA only began to solicit bids for vendors to provide bottled water for distribution to Hurricane Sandy victims on Friday, sending out a solicitation request for 2.3 million gallons of bottled water at the FedBizOpps.gov website. Bidding closed at 4:30 pm eastern.

Breitbart News spoke with contracting officer Annette Wright, who said that the winning vendor would be required to deliver the 2.3 million gallons of bottled water to an East Farmingdale, New York distribution center that was listed in the solicitation request by Monday, November 5th. Ms. Wright was unable to say when or how the water would be delivered from the distribution center to needy Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey, Staten Island, Long Island, and other boroughs of New York City. Vendors “are currently being evaluated,”

On Nov. 7th, Thank a Catholic: Obama’s support among Catholics has collapsed. BONUS – only 45 attend “Catholics for Obama” rally and bishops are having priests read letters this Sunday specifically touching on “religious freedom”.
