I don't get it...revenge for what???? revenge to whom??? It sure has hit the airways as a huge negative for Obama. Romney countered him by saying Vote for "love of Country' not revenge...good move on Mitt's part I haven't heard any follow up by Obama...maybe he is knowing he mispoke again. Of course the extreme Romney haters will love the anger...

He's backed into a corner and his true character has come to the forefront. What is also disturbing his Valarie Jarret, his advisor has used the word 'payback' and promised even if Romney wins by a landslide, they will contest it to the limits. Yea, and these folks LOVE their country?

Obama's economy has rendered me unemployed. I have lots of time on my hands, figured I should put it to good use. Hopefully, won't have so much time soon. Thank you, I'm honored to have some useful purpose.

What he says, that is Obama, shows what he really meant. He did not have time to stop it, maybe he was not looking zt the teleprompter at the time that would have coached his words in social justice. What would revenge mean? That instead if illegally grabbing things out of stores, and breaking windows, the poor, especially the poor blacks, can do it legally? Does it mean that like on TV, the black man will be considered the harbinger of righteousness the noble? Does it mean that it is all right to white people to have one or two children and kill the rest by abortion, but not for blacks? Does it mean that blacks can go to church and speak about Jesus Christ openly, but not whites? Does it mean that blacks can have free education, but others can pay for it? Does it mean Muslims can be protected against persecution and no one can say anything bad against them, but forget the Christians and the Jews. I can go on and on. I hope that many have gotten out to stop Obama from orchestrating his revenge. It sounds very scary to me and I live n Canada. We want America free, not under the wings of a despot who is regarded by many as a demigod..

sjvenden27 I love Canada..I have some cousins in Toronto and spent some time in Victoria before my aunt passed away. It's a beautiful country I will never forget my first impression of the Niagra Falls when I was about 9..I still remember hearing the roar of the Falls long before we could actually see them and I remember going down in that elevator in a raincoat... I hope Obama comes to his senses and stops playing to his base and is reasonable in the next 4 years..

So do I,m but I feel that secretly he wants to be ruler of America rather then just the president. That is why he is signing all those executive orders and also when the predecessor does something, instead of taking an inch, he will take a mile.

I don't think it's a mystery. Obama's good at wearing two coats, but the trouble is that we've seen him in both of them already. And one of them is identical to the one worn by progressive media and the uberlibs who consistently blame every single conceivable world ill on Republicans and those not aligned with progressive liberal ideology. Republicans are supposedly wholly to blame for everything that's wrong in America. Not only are they to blame, but the narrative is that Republicans do it on purpose in order to push women and minorities back into the past and to have big business control the world. So the "revenge" is to be enacted on those whose fault it is that the world isn't ideally toned for progressive eyes: Mitt Romney.

matersfish ..that makes some sense... I wonder if there is a bit of resentment for the things Romney said about Obama..especially the most embarrassing but truthful points. I know Obama is used to being praised and protected and during the campaign he was exposed. Also I keep hearing reports of how intensely Obama dislikes Romney...

Revenge? i didnt know he said that. please tell me he is not playing the race card again? that just makes for more biggotry, etc. this black president thing should have been a wonderful break through for our country. instead it seems to be going the other way we really need another one that loves our country, not one thats just ambitious. problem is im thinking romney is just the same. ambitious not much choice in candidates again

Bonnybon, are you aware of Romney's character? Did you know that he is a very charitable man, who not only gives of his wealth to others above and beyond what most consider generous, but also gives of his time to others, even if they are unable to return any 'profit' to him?

bunnybon7 I too was hoping having a Black President would ease tensions and we would all work together..of course both sides blame each other for the lack of cooperation but I have never seen so much anger..and it's sad...

Voting for the president is not about personal hatred or love of the candidate, it is about choosing the best person either a man or a woman to be the leader of the nation and the head of its democratic institutions, the bright or dark future of a nation usually decide by the governance and policy of that nation's ruling government, it is a personal choice of every citizen that base on a much bigger factor than just individual love or hatred toward another person. Whichever candidate that can present the best solution and can acknowledge on the problem we faced in the nation building journey; who has the most realistic touchs on current events and issues affecting the country and the world should be chosen and receive the mandate of the people to govern.

From my understanding of all of this Obama considers himself the underdog.. That he understands what the every day citizen has to endure on a daily basis.. It could be true I will give him that much.. To sit there and out right attack a part of the population is soooo uncalled for, juvenile, and outright unprofessional!! Yeah thats the best way to get people to vote for you create hate.. Thats really going to work... WTH was he thinking??? Granted there are more numbers among the minorites; but without the support of corporite America the lines are clearly drawn.. Some have already casted their vote; tommorrow the rest of the voters will go to the polls... Then in 48 hours or less the next President of the United States will be announced.. January that candiate will be swarn into office.. The HATE will still be there.. What we are not fighting enough over seas??? Now Obama wants to bring it to our land here among our people?? He wasnt thinking of the future!! Just the present, have to gain that POWER back and FORGET about the conquences.. People wonder why I didnt vote for Obama... Really is it that hard...

sjvenden27 Looks like we both 'lost'..Obama put on a masterful get out the vote campaign and deserves credit for it..of course he was a community organizer so maybe that helped somewhat..still he had people like Axelrod who knew how to organize... I just hope thibgs don't get too bad in the next 4 years.....

Yes I have to agree.. People need to realize the election is over; and all we can do now is hope for a better future.. Continuing to argue over the electon is wasted time.. There are so many others things that should be discussed among the masses.. I do hope that its better then the last 4.. and does not get worse

I believe he meant that the revenge would be against the congress who has stopped him from keeping his promises to the country.

lacieice Except he did have a Dem majority House and Senate the first 2 years and still screwed up...and the country has given the GOP a mandate as much as the Pres..the House is still in the hands of the GOP and 30 governers are Republicans...

I don't know but that is a turn off to voters, why revenge and for whom? this is surely an insult to the american people who prefers the candidates to be serious on issues and try not to mud slinging on the other side. am not american, but even i don't like that slogan, it speaks hate, it's make people believe even more that he's really not serious or competent to run again. maybe he had this chance and failed?

LetranKnight25 I agree it is a turn off for some..hopefully most..but the sad truth is many of Obama's supporters are energized with this type of the rhetoric. Remember after the first debate Obama was criticized for not going after Romney more? Then when Obama was obnoxious and condescending in the second and third debates his fans loved it ...

I don't get that comment either, it's not like Romney's the President now and Obama's the challenger. It's that hole victim mentality that many Democrats seem to have the "Woe is me the government must take care of me" mentality that I don't get either.

bobmnu ..A comment after some of the debates..was it appeared as if Romney were the President since he came across as dignified and classy while Obama looked like the challenger as he seemed like a snarky bully full of anger and venom...

If you follow the extremes of his base you will know that revenge is aimed at those who are successful (the Rich) and by voting for him will get you stuff. Just look at the lady in Cleveland, OH who was praising her Obama Phone. Also the people who lined up in Detroit for the Obama Money, the Lady who asked for a new kitchen or the young man who worked at McDonalds and went gaga over meeting Obama and asked the President to do something about McDonald not offering Health Insurance and not promoting him at work. All the President has talked about is taxing the rich and making them pay their fair share and implying that the poor would get more because of this. Voting is the best revenge means vote for me and get revenge on the rich people.

bobmnu Good points..and certainly Obama has stirred up his base by appealing to their victimhood...thing is Obama made himself rich too, which is fine, except he then apears to be a hypocrite as he bashes 'the rich'
