  1. Oh but but but (splutter) but…. Obama was taken out of context!!!!1!

    The direct quote is “Don’t boo, vote. Voting is the best revenge” AND THAT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING! Don’t take Obama out of context you racist!

    Just like, in a speech where Obama spent paragraphs bashing independent-minded business people who believe their own smarts and hard work might have had something to do with their success, His direct quote was “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that” AND THAT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING, don’t take Obama out of context you RAAYSIST!!!1!111!1!

  2. Valerie Jarret explains what Obama means by revenge:

    “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.”

    Vicious bunch of sociopaths, aren’t they?

  3. Sociopaths? We know that when a hurricane kills dozens of people, Levi focuses on his hope that it helps Obama politically. We suspect that when the White House gets a live video feed of a terrorist attack where brave Americans need help, the President goes to bed without helping them, and flies to Vegas the next day to campaign. Sociopaths?

  4. Obama flew to Las Vegas last night to party with Eva Longoria. Something about seeing people suffering just makes him think, “Hey, Vegas!”

  5. Anyone want to bet on the tone of Obama’s concession speech? Ten to one, gracious will not be the adjective to describe it. And wait till you see the look on the First Grifter’s face when she realizes her taxpayer funded vacations are coming to an end. She will NOT be proud of her country as is usual for her.

  6. THERE are two things I’ll predict about Tuesday’s election: one is that America’s biggest voting bloc — the center-right/center-left — will win; the other is that there’s going to be a big civil war within the Republican Party and a small civil war within the Democratic Party starting the day after the election, as they’re each forced to accommodate this center-left/center-right victory

  7. V the K-I know this is almost a standard mantra for me when somebody on the left says or does something shocking.

    But any bets on what the press reaction would have been had Rove said something like that with regards to Bush’s election on 2004?

    Basically Jarrett has made it clear that the next administration doesn’t intend to do anything bipartisan and it appears that Obama will seize some more power with his super pen through executive orders. Obama really does think he is a dictator.

    The presidency isn’t about winning and taking revenge or shoving the win in the faces of your opponent. It is about governing with competence-something our president seems to be short on.

  8. As usual, a pointless semantic diversion is trumped up by the political drama fans who crave the platitudes. And as usual, you’re not even getting it right. Obama didnt’ say ‘vote for revenge,’ he said ‘voting is the best revenge.’ I’m not bored enough to explain this important distinction and the importance of accurately attributing quotes, but when did we all agree that ‘voting for revenge’ is a bad thing? Who says you can’t vote for revenge and for country?

    All I see is a desperate man sentimentally begging people to vote for him. Is this inspiring to you people? Are you so easily led around?

  9. Levi it still begs the question “revenge against whom?”

  11. Obama was simply speaking to his base. The left is driven by envy, greed, and a never satisfied desire for vengeance on those who have, in their opinion, wronged them.

    There is plenty of asininity across the political spectrum but the truly unlovely asininity is almost exclusively left (e.g Bill Maher’s pronouncement that blacks will go after Romney voters is BHO loses. So, Maher tells us that blacks are violent people that will come after conservatives if things don’t turn out the “right way” and no one says a damn thing.)

  12. @5: John, I can only imagine how awful a Romney transition will be given the hostility the Romney team will face. It will make Bush-43′s transition, with the Clintonite vandalism of the White House, a model of cooperation.

  13. I’m not bored enough to explain this important distinction and the importance of accurately attributing quotes, but when did we all agree that ‘voting for revenge’ is a bad thing?

    That would be because the little fascist can not explain either the distinction or the importance of delineating why the attributed quotes are “inaccurate” by his reckoning.

    Levi is a naval gazing ideologue who just has to step forward and finger paint with his own diarrhea out of the uncontrolled response mechanism that substitutes for his brain.

  14. Anyone want to bet on the tone of Obama’s concession speech? Ten to one, gracious will not be the adjective to describe it.

    John, here’s my prediction.

    - Romney wins a D+3 election by something like 50-49, 51-48 or 52-47, carrying Independents by at least eight points nationwide.
    - Lefties everywhere call for massive, endless recounts, because they just can’t believe the real voting over what they “knew” should happen from “what all [sic] the polls said”.
    - They also try legal challenges to overturn Electoral College certifications, and as well, directly campaign among the electors, continuing the campaign until Jan. 6.
    - The real aim and purpose of all of which is to try to de-legitimize Romney’s presidency… before it begins.

    And wait till you see the look on the First Grifter’s face when she realizes her taxpayer funded vacations are coming to an end.

    Don’t worry, she’ll retire to a palatial estate with ongoing Secret Service protection and, I hate to say it, continuing taxpayer-funded junkets; just slightly smaller ones.

  16. It would seem that the Obama campaign spends half their time and resources on damage control, putting out perpetual Biden fires and Obama You-Didn’t-Build-That-esque remarks. They just can’t get out of their own way.

  17. Here’s a song that you might find topical, at least inasmuch as the chorus is concerned. I hope it doesn’t get quite as bad as the lyrics suggest.

  18. [...] if you want), is starting to sound like a dictator (assuming she actually did say this) (h/t V the K).  These are her supposed words: “After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  [...]

  19. New angle, folks. I just watched the ad again, with Bammy’s clip. I swear, with each passing week that guy looks AND SOUNDS more like Richard Nixon. He’s adopted not only Nixon’s pallor, but his glower and cadence.
