Obama Wants Revenge

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:35 pm

Nice (and quick) ad from Romney:

Always remember: if we point out your mistakes, it’s our fault:

Romney’s message is revenge, you say. Your guy said it, but it’s our guy’s message.

Yuh-huh.

Incredible dishonesty — but it helps keep the focus on Obama’s comment. Thanks, Jimbo!

Romney seems to have some momentum in Ohio, if this photo is any indication:

  2. One good-sized crowd photo is not an indication of momentum.

  3. Let’s talk numbers for those who don’t trust photos.

    Yesterday, Romney drew a crowd of 30,000 in Ohio, while Obama’s crowd was a paltry 2,800. And this morning, Obama’s crowd in Cleveland was 4,000 — 20 times less than his 2008 crowd of 80,000.

    “Romney’s message is about that horrible thing Obama did to your mouth. The president’s message is ‘savor the flavor.’”

  12. Maher was also talking about voting and revenge:

    “If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

    Maybe that’s what Obama was attempting to say, but it just got mixed up in the delivery.

  14. Speaking of O crowds, according to http://www.thegatewaypundit.com only 45 people showed up at Catholics for Obama rally at a Catholic University in Colorado. Not what they wanted, so had a discussion instead. But in fairness, I think that silly twit Fluke had only seven at one of her Nevada appearances.

    Maher was also talking about voting and revenge: … black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

    I know he’s just being a smart-ass and trying to use stereotypes to make a sly, har-de-har-ha point. But the humor goes only so far, because Maher is all too typical of white liberals in places like Hollywood, New York and San Francisco. Or those who fancy themselves as being so tolerant and racially open-minded. Yet most of them would shudder at the thought of having to move to certain parts of town, of sending their kids to certain schools located in certain neighborhoods (BTW, Barack and Michelle—how are your precious kids doing in their cushy, bubble-world schools?).

  21. “Voting is the best revenge”

    Revenge for this:

    “A last-minute directive issued by Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted could invalidate legal provisional ballots.
    …The directive, issued Friday, lays out the requirements for submitting a provisional ballot. The directive includes a form which puts the burden on the voter to correctly record the form of ID provided to election officials. Husted also instructed election officials that if the form is not filled out correctly by a voter, the ballot should not be counted.”

    It has nothing to do with the validity of the ID, but being slopy with the form. What’s next typos?

    And this from the man who tried to cut back on early voting except for military except for the military. As if cops are firemen don’t serve.

  27. And only 200 people showed at a rally for Obama with Stevie Wonder. Of course Obama wasn’t there. I wonder how many more he would have attracted.

    Comment by PatAZ (142472) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:30 pm

  28. Oh, c’mon. This “sleeeepy” person is getting so worried, he or she doesn’t even proofread before sending. Like:

    “…It has nothing to do with the validity of the ID, but being slopy with the form. What’s next typos?…”

    That’s comedy gold.

    Comment by Simon Jester (a7a5ae) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:43 pm

  29. Maher was also talking about voting and revenge: … black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

    If I were a black person I would be furious…what makes this twirpy little white guy assume he knows how black people will react post-election? I find it remarkable that he gets away with assuming black people will be uncivilized savages with no self control if Obama loses because I know a number of black people who supported Obama and if he loses, they will do nothing of the sort and will instead be as gracious and kind and American as they’ve always been.

    There is nothing worse than an arrogant, rich white guy dumbing down a minority group simply because of his own narrow-mindedness.

    Comment by Dana (292dcf) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:47 pm

  30. Dana, I don’t know if you agree, but the rich progressive Left (read, Bill Maher) is really addicted to self-revelation via projection. I mean, honestly: trying to make people think that black folks will go attack white votes for voting a particular way? Clearly, racism lives inside Maher’s brain 24/7.

    Basically, I find that the things they accuse the Right of doing…well, they are doing that themselves.

    Comment by Simon Jester (a7a5ae) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:49 pm

  31. I’m confused: doesn’t getting revenge require someone to have actually done something first to get back at them for?

    The word Revenge is such a bitter and desperate choice to make.

    Comment by Dana (292dcf) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:51 pm

  32. Maher is as pathetic as Chris Matthews. Both desperately want to be cool black cats and instead ended up rich, white dudes. Doesn’t get much worse than that in their world.

    Comment by Dana (292dcf) — 11/3/2012 @ 3:52 pm

  33. I agree with Dana that revenge is a strange word for Obama to use. How do you think he meant it — as in getting even for something? If so, for what?

    My first thought was that Obama wants voters to get even with Romney and the Republicans for opposing him or for daring to run against him, as if the Presidency belongs to him. But I’ve learned that I don’t think like Obama and the Democrats, so I’m interested in what others think.

  35. revenge is distinctly different from hope and change… for one thing it’s best if you serve it chilled whereas with the hope and the change lukewarm is fine

    Comment by happyfeet (11d0d4) — 11/3/2012 @ 4:10 pm

  36. “Revenge” is the central emotional theme driving many of the world’s great historical opera plots. The drama and the quest for vengeance leads to some great music, but things usually don’t end well for the characters or the countries involved.

    Comment by elissa (3f3e6e) — 11/3/2012 @ 4:22 pm

  37. I know that the spinning comes with the terrain of any presidential election. But does OfA’s spinning have to be so damned lame.

    Seriously, Jen Psaki says that O meant “take revenge” on Romney and Ryan for the Jeep production bit. But Obama didn’t get around to that meme for another couple minutes.

    Then Jim Messina says “we’re not talking about it.” Dude by mentioning it, even to dismiss it, you’re still talking about it. Is that really where you want to be three days before the election?

    They suck this go round.

    Comment by Esau's Message (72b8e3) — 11/3/2012 @ 4:42 pm

  38. Obama wants voters to get even with Romney and the Republicans for opposing him or for daring to run against him, as if the Presidency belongs to him.

    I don’t think so – Romney still has done nothing in an official capacity that has had a negative impact on the populace. Running against the president has not had a direct impact on voters…..yet. (Maybe taking away voters from Obama, perhaps).

    It’s a loaded choice of word to infer that Romney has hurt the people. And considering there is certainly a large swath of Obama voters that see themselves as having been victimized by government, “revenge” may resonate with them.

    However, I don’t see it reaching any undecideds.

    Comment by Dana (292dcf) — 11/3/2012 @ 4:43 pm

  39. Chris Mathews, LOL. He will wander in the desert shouting his failed prophecies after Tuesday to…no one.

  40. what you did on our little country was evil and it was wrong mister obama, and to tell you the truth you kinda hurt my feelings

    Comment by happyfeet wants revenge (11d0d4) — 11/3/2012 @ 4:54 pm

  41. 32. Maher is as pathetic as Chris Matthews. Both desperately want to be cool black cats and instead ended up rich, white dudes. Doesn’t get much worse than that in their world.

    Comment by Dana — 11/3/2012 @ 3:52 pm

    I don’t know if this rates as “much worse” in their world or a close second. But if the two rich white dudes couldn’t be cool black cats, they at least tried to tell people to vote for the cool black cat.

    It was tingles’ wet dream.

    And now their cool black cat is imploding.

    I think watching MSNBC Tuesday night is going to be more fun than watching it during the Wisconsin recall was. Maddow, Schultz, Sharpton, and Matthews went from insufferable smugness to the edge of tears and a nervous breakdown in the course of 45 minutes once the polls closed and the results started coming in. Except Shultz; his condition was best described as stunned denial.

    Imagine what they’ll look like when polls close on the east coast and Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania go for Romney.

    I bet they start drinking heavily right on the air.

  45. Obama’s turnout pitch to Latinos: Get out there and punish your “enemies”

    Barack Obama, October 2010

    You know, Romney should put together a medley of Preezy the Great Revenger’s greatest hits.

    Then note when Prom Queen talks about hitting back twice as hard, punishing enemies, revenge, etc., he’s not talking about the crowd that was sacking our consulate in Benghazi.

    No, those people’s feelings he doesn’t want to hurt.

    When he’s talking anger and revenge “from the loins” he only really feels it when he’s talking about other Americans.

  48. ____________________________________________

    What did he say, before the last election ‘get in their face, punch twice as hard’

    His rhetoric and demeanor are full of immature, non-statesmen type of leftism. He’s pretty much a college-aged radical who never grew up. That became grotesquely apparent to me on the day he reacted in an oddly lighthearted way about Nidal Hasan following his murder of several people at Fort Hood.

    The nature of the real Obama should have been apparent to anyone 4 years ago. I recall back in 2008 a discussion here about whether Obama was a decent person or not, or something along those lines. Such a conversation could have been extended to the question of whether Bill Clinton respects women or not. IOW, yea, I guess in one way he does—ie, using the guidepost of a person’s opinions on legislation and policymaking.

    Stretch such a rationalization far enough, and one can easily end up saying that [insert name of a notorious dictator here] was a fantastic human being because he kept the trains running on time.

I was already about to wet my panties from Lovie’s truth squad corrections of the rethuglican talking points. Now a black man is right here on patterico turf.
    #50 pdbuttons..enlighten me, are you talking about Eli Wallach’s Tuco from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly or the crazy-ass Mexican meth head gangster from Breaking Bad? The former, I assume.

    From my little part of the world, I notice very few Obama-Biden bumper stickers this time around, even on most of my gay teachers neighbors’ cars. And I’m talking leftard-worshipping demographics, home of the infamous butterfly ballot and Jews who were confused. Perhaps there is some justice. Friend in Pa. says her Chitown friends are disgusted with Obama and are voting for Romney. I think my Irish acquaintances here are stuck on stupid though, being Euroweenie transplants. The rest of the world apparently remains gaga for the anointed one.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1362646/Faith-Kroll-Jim-Marcus-perform-sex-toy-demonstration-Northwest-University.html

    Students watch a woman being pleasured by a sex toy as part of class at Northwestern University

    The president of the school is now launching an investigation

    A live sex act was performed in front of a group of students at a top university which involved a woman being brought to orgasm by a machine-powered saw with a phallic object instead of a blade.

    Northwestern University, in Chicago, which charges more than $40,000 a year in fees, held the unusual demonstration at the campus last week in which a group of students watched a naked woman being penetrated by the powerful sex toy.

    The graphic act was performed in front of about 100 students in psychology professor John Michael Bailey’s human sexuality class.

    …she ought to give up her political aspirations and just remain at the university. The right university this time, not a Catholic one.

  81. 73.NU is the most expensive second rate university in the world.

    Did someone say expensive? Second rate? Sounds like a perfect fit for Fluke.

    Which means, of coure, instead of the Milwaukee Sawzall she’d have to look for a suitable replacement from a sponsor like Harbor Freight.

  85. I’ll wait and see,nk. For a community organizer you would think hurricane sandy was just what this meathead needed to secure 4 more years. But his idea of community organizing is to polarize white people. He is just a glorified jackson or sharpton.

  86. mg, dude! What do you think anybody’s idea of “community organizing” is? You just nailed the definition of “community organizing.”

    One indication he might be weak is that he associated getting criticized with getting punched, and was angry enough to use the language of violence when explaining how to react to his supporters.

    He did something similar recently by talking about voting as revenge. He is upset that America dared field a candidate against him. He can’t take criticism to the point where he thinks it’s like being punched. Thus, he’s surrounded himself with advisers who won’t contradict him.

  90. ____________________________________________

    The following is another reason why Romney really does need a sizable margin of support on Tuesday, and certainly not a repeat of Bush and Gore in 2000.

    I’ve sometimes used the phrase “Banana Republic” to describe what this nation can easily become, or what it’s lurching forward (or backwards) to. But there was always a bit of tongue-in-cheek in that comment. Or more sarcasm than genuine worry and concern. Not anymore.

    America is looking into the abyss if it has caught the disease infecting much of the populace of countries along the lines of Venezuela and Argentina. Or 2 societies that recently have patted on the head — by returning to office — absolutist, extreme, ultra-liberal leaders.

    Obama’s “right-hand man,” Valerie Jarrett, reminds me of President Cristina Kirchner of Argentina, so ideologically corrupt that she has made it illegal for any non-official source to publicly report on that nation’s inflation figures. And Jarrett’s boss, who has been seen to warmly embrace Hugo Chavez, has a streak of vindictiveness and hubris that mirrors the qualities of the most notorious, ignoble totalitarian leaders out there.

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time.”

    Openly declared as “Obama’s Brain”, and the figure whose second story West Wing office has been described by political insiders as the true Oval Office of the Obama White House, Valerie Jarrett is letting it be known that if Barack Obama secures election victory next week, there may be, quite literally, hell to pay for those who opposed him.

    …A rep from Jarrett office was in today. She gave us a finish line pep talk and then afterwards, heard her saying how Jarrett is very excited about a 2nd term agenda and a big part of that agenda is to punish everyone who opposed them during the first term and the campaign. Strange that everything was “Ms. Jarrett wants this, and Ms. Jarrett is looking forward to that”. You hardly heard Obama’s name mentioned by her which I guess reinforces what people are saying. Valerie Jarrett really is the power in the White House.

    The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy.

  91. I think watching MSNBC Tuesday night is going to be more fun than watching it during the Wisconsin recall was. Maddow, Schultz, Sharpton, and Matthews went from insufferable smugness to the edge of tears and a nervous breakdown in the course of 45 minutes once the polls closed and the results started coming in. Except Shultz; his condition was best described as stunned denial.

    Imagine what they’ll look like when polls close on the east coast and Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania go for Romney.

    I bet they start drinking heavily right on the air.

    But will MSDNC broadcast the first public hangings on TV albeit they will be self-inflicted? I can see it now, they will be standing on chairs with self applied nooses around their necks, threatening to off themselves if the vote doesn’t turn around. I am popping vast quantities of popcorn ahead of time, can’t wait to see liberal heads assploding all over my new widescreen. Even though I have hearing loss, gonna have to turn down the volume for all their caterwauling, moaning, shrieking, ranting, raving, cursing, and epic cries of despair!

  92. Romney seems to have some momentum in Ohio, if this photo is any indication:

    Obviously photoshopped. Everyone knows The One is +8 in Ohio…

    Happened already in 2000. They’ll be all the more certain it was an inside job, that the GOP clearly cheated… I mean, all the numbers were telling them THEIR boycandidate was going to win! It can’t be that that was all a lie to keep their spirits up and get them out at the polls, which they might not have done if they knew the Real Numbers. And then they can riot claiming it was all racism that got him dis-elected.

  94. Mark, Valerie can push all the totalitarian agenda through that she wants. The people aren’t that happy with this crap, and the ones who support her mostly don’t have guns. She gets into a fight with the American people she’ll find that the military isn’t on her side either.

    I don’t want that to happen but it would be the result of her attempting to carry out those threats.

    This ain’t no “banana republic” — we’ve got a lot of traditionalists around who have been holding back to let the system fix itself, but doubting if it will.

    At some point, some event is going to set them loose and the career politicians and bureaucrats will be too busy dodging assassins to get much done towards their “agenda”…

  95. That’s disturbing to read, Mark.

    What’s happened to this country? This is a senior adviser to the US President brazenly acting like she’s a dictator.

    Obama hasn’t fired her? Then he owns those comments, in my opinion. They cross the line.

    Unfortunately, I already voted for Romney and I can’t vote twice because I’m Republican.

  97. She was born in Iran, but she’s of African American background, but likely with Geithner, Obama, et al, they share the same tranzi outlook,

  98. From the wiki;

    Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz in 1950, as part of a program where American doctors and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries’ health and farming efforts.

  100. As for Papa;

    From 1973 to 1984, he directed the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center of the University of Chicago, funded by the National Institutes of Health. He was a member of the national advisory group that urged the Nixon administration to initiate the inception of the Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, which served as a model of patient-centered disease management and research. He also served as assistant dean of students for minority affairs for the Pritzker School of Medicine from 1986 to 1990.[3]

    Which gave him the notion that sickle cell screenings were counterproductive, funny how that works,
