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.”

Conservative4ev on November 3, 2012 at 7:17 PM

Well, it looks like its going to be a late night/early morning over here in the Hindu Kush to find out if we have a new CDR in Chief!

A part of me thinks Romney is going to run the table on most of these swing states due to ridiculous D+8, D+9, polling that will not materialize and another part of me thinks Obama will win in a squeaker and depressing many military members over here…

Wouldn’t it be great if a Mormon managed to unite Protestants,Catholics, and Jews to vote together to preserve Religious Liberty guaranteed in our constitution and conservative policy (foreign & domestic)…That could only happen in America.

The new Bishop (Kevin William Vann) of Orange County is from Ft. Worth Texas.

LA is the largest diocese in this county.

“Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles has encouraged U.S. Catholics to unite their faith with their actions in public life and in the voting booth to respond to a “hard secular turn” in society…

He said Catholics in America face a “new moment” in which the U.S. government has become “actively opposed to Catholic teachings and practices.” Catholics need to do “critical thinking and soul-searching” about their place in “a radically secular, ‘post-Christian’ America.”

Religious liberty, he noted, is a “crucial issue” but it is even more important what Catholics do with their religious liberty. One recommendation he made is that Catholics should renew their faith and their commitment to living their faith in society.

“Now, more than ever, we need to know our faith and we need to have the courage to bear witness to our beliefs and the teachings of the Church,” he said.

In his three most recent columns, Archbishop Gomez has addressed the issues of Catholic action in public life and in the voting booth…”

Like clockwork PPP releases their tracker with Obama up 3, 50-47. As I said before, PPP is working this weekend to create a narrative

This basically sums it up.

Funny how all the liberal “pollsters” are releasing poll after poll this weekend that shows Obama winning swing states, the national election, and everything in between. Has nothing to do with setting a narrative in spite of what the numbers in the states show.

When Boss Daley died he did not leave behind a preselected and groomed successor, throwing the Machine into disarray.

In the ensuing internal power struggle Bilandic emerged as the temporary compromise between competing factions within the Machine. He and his supporters hoped to leverage this to retain and consolidate power.

Then a record blizzard hit. Streets were not plowed for many days, even weeks. Bilandic was blamed. The Machine was still in the midst of internal power struggles. Enter the unlikely Jane Byrne. Then Harold Washington, because in the next Mayoral election (essentially the Democratic primary) Byrne and Ritchie Junior split the non-black vote. Finally Junior managed to grab power, keep it, and stabilize the Machine. The Machine is alive and well and thriving. The Rahmfather, credit John Kass, was selected and supported for Mayor by the Machine.

Even though part of the Machine, Bilandic lost his chance to become Boss Daley’s successor because of a record blizzard.

Would be nice to see something similar happen to Napoleon Bloomberg.

They shall not return to us, the resolute, the young,
The eager and whole-hearted whom we gave:
But the men who left them thriftily to die in their own dung,
Shall they come with years and honour to the grave?

They shall not return to us; the strong men coldly slain
In sight of help denied from day to day:
But the men who edged their agonies and chid them in their pain,
Are they too strong and wise to put away?

Our dead shall not return to us while Day and Night divide–
Never while the bars of sunset hold.
But the idle-minded overlings who quibbled while they died,
Shall they thrust for high employments as of old?

Shall we only threaten and be angry for an hour:
When the storm is ended shall we find
How softly but how swiftly they have sidled back to power
By the favour and contrivance of their kind?

Even while they soothe us, while they promise large amends,
Even while they make a show of fear,
Do they call upon their debtors, and take counsel with their friends,
To conform and re-establish each career?

Their lives cannot repay us–their death could not undo–
The shame that they have laid upon our race.
But the slothfulness that wasted and the arrogance that slew,
Shall we leave it unabated in its place?

I know that we did not know EXACTLY where it was going to hit but we could have these supplies staged inland and at several “distribution centers” so our fellow Americans are not having to starve and wait 6-7 days for the rest of the country to send supplies? Is this a rational question? I believe it is.

They should have porta-potties as well pre-staged inland as well so within at least 48 hours people are getting relief.

Just my two afghani’s…

I have enjoyed the spin I have seen on MSNBC and CNN over here about why Obama is not drawing the large crowds.

Also I see how the MSM is NOT posting any crowd shots that I have seen of Romney’s 18-30K that showed up in Cincinnati. Cannot have that out there on the websites as that will further depress Obama voters.

This is background on Kipling’s poem “Mesopotamia” that NRO retitled Benghazi, 2012, by Rudyard Kipling.

http://www.kipling.org.uk/rg_mesopotamia_moore.htm

The subject of the poem is the Mesopotamia campaign of World War I, and, specifically, the administrative bungling that led to General Townshend’s surrender of Kut in April 1916, which one historian has called ‘the most abject capitulation in British military history’ . . .

. . . the verses seek vengeance for the deaths caused by the incompetent leadership of a military operation that was a strategic, tactical, and logistical disaster. In six quatrains of ballad-like rhyme and metre, Kipling lets loose all his powers of public rhetoric to revolt against the appalling and unnecessary suffering of the common soldier, and calls for revenge on the politicians and generals responsible for the administration of a system generally admitted to be ‘hopelessly inadequate’.

While Romney drew 30,000 plus in Ohio Friday night the Marxist only drew the following in Milwaukee.

Partisan hacks in the national media openly advocating for Obama say 18,000 attended President Obama’s rally today in Wisconsin with no evidence whatsoever. Local press who are pleased to see the President but who also do their job and report on the actual event say 5,000. Thankfully we have battlegroundwatch.com commenter “cliftonchr” breaking down the conundrum.

I’m from Texas a right to work state…This just makes me shake my head.

“On his nationally syndicated talk radio program Friday, Sean Hannity played audio of what he said were union workers in New York City yelling “Scabs!” and “Scumbags!” at nonunion utility workers who came to the city to help reconnect power lines after Hurricane Sandy

The audio Hannity played Friday featured what he said were “union thugs” berating utility workers from Alabama.

“Go back where you came from! Look at her face! Scab! Look at her face, scab! That’s who you’re hurting, scab! You feel good tonight? Go home, you bunch of scabs! That’s who you’re hurting! Taking our jobs! That’s who you’re hurting, scabs! You’re hurting families!”

Hannity was outraged. “These are old people. They need heat. … Utility workers from Alabama, they get turned around,” he said.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pledged Friday that he wouldn’t permit union interference with power restoration, but the governments of New York state and New York City have been silent on the matter. (RELATED: Christie threatens “Disaster Control Act” order to guarantee nonunion utility workers can help restore NJ power)

You need to take into account that Obama is having people like Katy Perry and Bruce Springsteen show up to these events and is HIGHLY LIKELY why at least some of the thousands are showing up and NOT because of Obama.

On the flip side, Romney had Kid Rock, however, Romney’s supporters are NOT showing up because of Kid Rock. They show up because they believe in America and the new direction it needs to go from the previous four years.

Those are the differences in crowd size and why.
