The President puts over half the country on his enemies list.

Obama tells his supporters to get "revenge" on their opponents.

Here is his "closing argument" in his campaign:



Jennifer Rubin analyzes:

That’s the best he can do? “Voting is the best revenge”? And against whom should voters seek “revenge” — other Americans? A candidate who has the support of about half the electorate? It is mind-boggling, really, that this sort of snide, negative motivation is what President Obama has saved up for his final appeal.

But that’s really been the story of his campaign all along. Carpet-bomb Mitt Romney with negative ads during the summer and then make the last week of the campaign about Big Bird, “Romnesia” and “binders full of women.” He apparently has given up on luring independent, less-partisan voters (Romney leads by double digits among independents, most pollsters say). In his yearning to turn out his base he must imagine that those voters bear as much animus against his opponents as he does. But of course that’s not how he turned out his base last time. Then it was hope and change; now Romney is the hope and change candidate.

Voting for president is unlike any other choice voters make. Most people don’t have to feel comfortable, let alone be proud, of their congressman. Not a lot of gubernatorial races turn on who is the more narcissistic candidate. When casting their vote for president, however, many voters want to feel proud of their selection and proud of the vote they are casting not only for themselves but for their future. “Revenge” is the last thing on their minds.


This class hatred/revenge motif has been trending upwards ever since the last unhinged days of the Gore campaign. You simply don't see this on the right.

These people are unhinged and this kind of thinking is dangerous. This is the kind of talk we expect from Nazis and Communists, not fargin' American Democrats.

What a refreshing change we see in Mitt Romney:

Line of the night:

Romney: “He asked his supporters to vote for revenge — for revenge. Instead I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”
