Obama "Revenge" Quote Reverberates on Campaign Trail

by at . Comments

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is hammering President Obama for a recent campaign speech in which he told the crowd, "voting is the best revenge."

Obama's comment was part a familiar stump speech riff; if audience members boo Romney's name, the president habitually says, "no no, don't boo - vote!"

In Springfield, Ohio, he said just that, adding, "Voting is the best revenge."

In response, his challenger tried to play up the remark (and the current White House occupant) as divisive, telling audiences, "vote for love of country, not revenge."

Asked to explain the word choice, the Obama campaign said that Romney is "closing his campaign with an ad full of scare tactics that's frightening workers in Ohio."

Sigh. Either way, it'll all be over tomorrow. Who ya got?!
