Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin took time to hammer Barack Obama for his statements regarding “Voting’s the best revenge” during a campaign rally on November 2, 2012.
“Revenge is a very poor tool to build a united and hope-filled nation and for a president to encourage anyone to exact revenge via their vote is pretty much the antithesis — certainly of what Mitt Romney is representing and standing for in this election. And that’s a great question — revenge against who? Against what?”
Hannity and Palin went on to mark the stark contrasts between how each campaign has been run, including the differences between the 2008 campaign of Barack Obama and the campaign of 2012.
Clearly, one has to ask, what Obama is talking about when he states, “don’t boo, vote…..voting’s the best revenge.” He’s the one who’s been in office. He’s the one who has been calling the shots. It hasn’t been Mitt Romney, that’s for sure, so I can only assume he is pushing the idea of revenge to stir up the Democrat base over abortion, contraception, homosexual issues and various welfare programs along with his biggest power grab Obamacare.
If you watch the clip itself, it’s not clear at all what Obama’s supporters are supposed to want revenge for. Obama mentions Romney’s name in the context of his run for the Senate in Massachusetts — back when Romney was quite the moderate — and the audience starts to boo. Obama says “no, no. Don’t boo. Vote. Vote. Voting is the best revenge.” Revenge for what? Him running for the Senate? Revenge for Romney daring to challenge Obama? I understand Obama is bitter. That’s been obvious for a while. But it’s just a weird and narcissistic assumption that his supporters want “revenge” too. Doesn’t mean it’s wrong, though. Which makes the whole thing even creepier.
I’ll let readers chime in on what they think Obama means by “revenge.”
