Obama campaign manager: Why must Mitt Romney be so focused on “revenge”?

posted at 2:31 pm on November 3, 2012 by

Obama says something about revenge, Romney hammers him on it, ergo it’s Romney who’s made revenge his message. Of all the golden Orwellian moments Team O has given us this year, this one will be hard to beat:

By this logic, O’s message is that he likes being able to fire people and thinks the 47 percent who support him are dependent on government.

Exit question for Republicans in battleground states, particularly Ohio: What’s the excuse for GOP turnout being anything less than 100 percent?

I hope the Obama campaign ends up in the textbooks so people will know how not to run a national campaign, if you want to win, and still have a country to run if you win. This guy is the most divisive president ever elected, perhaps because he’s the most unqualified president ever elected. He has no respect for the office, for the country, for it’s people, for it’s traditions, and anyone who disagrees with him.

We can be thankful we’re going to elect Mitt Romney because he’s the exact opposite of Obama and the country is going to need someone like him to heal the wounds President Obama has inflicted on us.

I actually hope the left still doesn’t get what they did wrong. I hope they never figure things out.

Why does Messina look like a blithering, drunken idiot?

They are PIVOTING away from the “REVENGE” meme now, because they’ve seen that it didn’t go over well with voters, and that Romney was BENEFITTING from it.

I smell fear.
