Obama campaign tries to explain his “revenge” comment
Obama campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki, asked about the president saying Friday that “voting is the best revenge,” said the he was referring to revenge against GOP challenger Mitt Romney’s lies and scare tactics in recent ads.
Psaki said a recent ad falsely claiming that Jeep was moving operations overseas amounted to a “scare tactic,” “frightening workers in Ohio into thinking, falsely, that they’re not going to have a job.
“And the message [President Obama] was sending is if you don’t like the policies, if you don’t like the plan that Gov. Romney is putting forward, If you think that’s a bad deal for the middle class, then you can go to the voting booth and cast your ballot,” Psaki told reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday. “It’s nothing more complicated than that.”
