Green Room

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?

This guy is just creepy.

I’m loving the Obama ad on the page. The image of a ginger polesmoker with Obamacare written on his hands makes me want to swtich my vote to King Barry.

Kataklysmic on November 3, 2012 at 2:36 PM

I just realized the guy in said ad is Jim Messina. At least he looks like the twitter picture. lol

The Romney campaign’s message today is revenge, ours is the President’s plan for the middle class. I’ll take that contrast any day. Step into the van for some candy, kiddo.

I may have added that last part.

Even when you think that the little scums cannot go lower, they yet go lower… Obama and his people has to be without any doubt the lowest type of humans who ever been in power in the history of our Republic…

mnjg on November 3, 2012 at 2:50 PM

I’m sorry (no, I’m not, but I like the figure of speech), but that is… One. Creepy. Dude. (Son of Chucky?)

SteveInRTP on November 3, 2012 at 2:52 PM

That picture and the Obamaphone lady in Ohio sum up ALL FOUR YEARS…..wait……add the picture of Ambassador Stevens being needlessly dragged through the streets of Benghazi….of the failed Obama Regime.

Messina and his ObamaCare hands.

Obamaphone lady and her greed (and knowledge about how to work the system).

Stevens, after asking for help repeatedly, meeting the same fate of Quaddafi that he helped facilitiate.

I cannot wait for Tuesday November 6 2012 around 11:30 PM when Romney is announced the 45th President Elect of the United States of America… On to Victory…

mnjg on November 3, 2012 at 2:54 PM

WOW. how can you criticize someone else for something YOU said??! team obama must be really desperate. they’re not even making logical sense anymore. (but, when were they? XD)

and that picture… *runs and hides*

Revenge, or Love of Country?

Best closing ad of a campaign that I have ever seen…

This ad is super powerful… I think they are going to put it on TV very soon…

So Alfred E. Newman is Obama’s campaign manager?

SagebrushPuppet on November 3, 2012 at 3:31 PM

Seriously, what kind of creeps are employed with the Obama campaign?

Greaseball Axelrod with his pedo stache is creepy enough, but this Messina guy makes my skin crawl.

If that isn’t the face of failure, I don’t know what is.

xdwall on November 3, 2012 at 3:47 PM

The Obama handmaidens are justifiably terrified of the new Romney ad.

Double the buy.

The real Obama has been unmasked for millions of indies, seniors, Hispanics, Catholics, and Reagan Dems.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of petulant, vile, ignorant, low-class and evil people.

matthew8787 on November 3, 2012 at 3:53 PM

Yikes. That picture. Dog just ran from the room, yelping.

And let’s not forget that special white trash and serial liar, Stephanie Cutter.

Exactly. This should be the “Chick-Fil-A” election.

DrStock on November 3, 2012 at 4:02 PM

Sheesh! I thought it said “Obama Cave.” Was trying to figure out if that meant he was hiding in one…LOL

Romney camp cant draw big crowds so they alter pics to make it look bigger http://www.buzzfeed.com/zekejmiller/romney-campaign-appears-to-exaggerate-size-of-neva … #losing

Like yesterday…

http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2012/11/few_know_about_stevie_wonder_a.html#incart_river

Obama + Stevie wonder draw a MASSIVE 200 large crowd.

http://news.cincinnati.com/proart/20121102/news010601/311020136&ref=ar?pagerestricted=1

Whereas Romney struggles to get his crowd to a mere 30,000.

Obviously Romney is losing and in trouble.

Oh wait, is 30,000 more than 200? Yeah, that whole math thing again… “counting” in this case is still causing issues.

May I say that Jim Messina is the most creepy ‘public serpent’ I will ever see or hear. Rove seems positively normal compared to the pedophile looking and sounding Jim Messina. Ewwwwwwwwww

Romney’s message isn’t about revenge, but mine is…and mine not only last longer, it doesn’t matter who wins. If you’re a Prog, my revenge never ends.

gekkobear on November 3, 2012 at 4:21 PM

..actually, you’ve overstated the crowd size — for Mr Wonder and Mr Under:

CLEVELAND —The final weekend of early voting is underway in this key Democratic stronghold in all-important Ohio — and that means Stevie Wonder.

In an unannounced event, Wonder performed for a small crowd of about 50 people a few blocks from the veritably besieged Cuyahoga County early voting site.

Note how they don’t guive any reasons that the “veritably besieged Cuyahoga County early voting site” is veritably besieged. Influx of Republican early voters, perhaps. Otherwise, Sako-Krap® might have had him and Mr Wonder’s get-together overrun by their freebie-seeking throngs.

The War Planner on November 3, 2012 at 5:02 PM

..polite request to geko-bbear and others who proffer the http://news.cincinnati.com URL, it’s behind a pay screen and we can’t seem to get to the great crowd shots. If you have other links, that’d be terrif!

I didn’t know Chucky had grown up to be Obama’s campaign manager.

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

Just a minor adjustment.

If you did, and you were Muslim, you’d never be able to eat with that hand again… ever.

Marcola on November 3, 2012 at 6:41 PM

Obama KNOWS the 47 percent who support him are dependent on government. Prog history will record O’s main failure as not being able to get that percentage well above 50.

Marcola on November 3, 2012 at 6:46 PM

This man must be blind and deaf to not know whats happened for the last four years. Barrow the leg Chris Matthews uses.

gekkobear on November 3, 2012 at 4:21 PM

The funny part is that this was supposed to be an early vote drive. They had a bus there (they were going to bring more in as needed) and Stevie said something like “I make music. Then you vote. You come back and we make more music”. The bus left the event completely empty. No one went to vote at all. And if there were 50 people, one trip would have done it leaving no one at the event which would have been hilarious.

Let’s just face the facts. We have a file clerk vs. a CEO.

So creepy…

DeathtotheSwiss on November 3, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Because if he had said it, the incessant wailing from the left would be ear-splitting.

Howdie Doodie in real life.

Folks, it’s over. There will come a time when we will have our grandchildren on our laps and we will speak about the Obama years and how never to repeat them.

Key West Reader on November 3, 2012 at 7:03 PM

Messina and people like him are what comes from cows peeing on hot rocks, smelly, vapid steam.

Anyone want to bet this is NOT on the TV tomorrow morning?

Freddy on November 3, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Because obama brought it up you stupid political hack twit. You couldn’t make stupid statements if the media didn’t work for the obama campaign. You and the media had better win this one, because, if you lose, retribution will be terrible to behold.

Old Country Boy on November 3, 2012 at 9:05 PM
