Revenge is Obama’s rail

Revenge is Obama’s rail

It’s nice that in his closing argument Obama has articulated more perfectly than ever before his political philosophy of revenge.

While various people are reacting as if Obama has gone off the rails, revenge is Obama’s rail.

Dividing Americans into groups and playing each against the other has been Obama’s modus operandi since the beginning of his political career.  Resentment and envy are the key emotions.

As documented here hundreds of times over the past four years, revenge against the top 5%, 2%, 1%, you name it, was the subtext and often text of Obama’s 2008 campaign and presidency.  Accusing opponents of racism has been Obama supporters’ main line of attack.

I’m glad he put a name on it.  Revenge.

One has to wonder, though, revenge against Romney for what?  Daring to run a campaign which has a real shot at interrupting Obama’s reign?

Did Romney run up $5 trillion in national debt and annual trillion dollar deficits for years to come?  Did Romney stifle job growth with massive regulatory schemes covering the health care and financial sectors of the economy?  Did Romney throw away billions of dollars on a failed Stimulus which was a payoff to state public sector unions?  Did Romney throw away more billions on loans to political supporters for pie-in-the-sky “green energy” companies?  Did Romney send clear messages that we were distancing ourselves from Israel?  Did Romney leave our Middle East policy in a shambles, with al-Qaeda flags being flown over our burning embassies? 

“Failure” would have been a better word for Obama to speak.  While looking in the mirror.

Comments

True character is revealed while under fire:

Obama – vote for revenge
Romney – vote for love of country

There’s a summation of the election.

You can’t discuss rationally with certain kinds of people.

It’s a waste of time as they’re not amenable to changing how (or whether) they think.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, Obama’s semi-literates are threatening to riot if he loses.

“One has to wonder, though, revenge against Romney for what?”

I think you have to start with, “Having two parents…particularly a father…who loved him”.

Everything after that just falls into place.

I also think that Romney scares Pres. Paracosm to death.

    Rags…It tickles the snot outta me that Mitt was talking to 30,000 fired-up enthusiasts for these Ohio remarks and Obam-Bam was spouting his ‘Tell’ to under 3,000 dead brains in the same state. LOVE it.

    Read Michael Barone’s “out on a limb” article and sleep soundly. (-:

Obama’s answer to the constitutional right of the American citizen to choose who will best govern this country is more Alinsky division and destruction. He is already exacting revenge on Staten Island for voting GOP. If he wins reelection, the fullness of his revenge will be visible to all. The country will pay and pay dearly for not giving him a landslide victory.

Obama is detestable: always was, always will be. He hates America. Of course there will be riots if he “loses,” although the rioters will say “stolen.”

One would think that a competent incumbent would have already exaced whatever revenge he could want.

The contrast is stark. The President definitely doesn’t sound like someone comfortably winning re-election. That worries me a bit. He sounds like he’s encouraging some, umm uh, bad behavior if he doesn’t win.

I’m hoping he’s not going to be a sore loser. His comments do not inspire confidence, that he’ll be a good sport about it.

And what damage could he inflict in the remaining months of this year?

    Whether obastard wins or loses, he will exact political mayhem on this country through EOs and PDs (Presidential Directives) until he leaves office.

    As for encouraging rioting and “revenge”, he will absolutely love watching the blacks and the unwashed OWSers riot and ruin what traditional America has built and values. I say, “Bring it.” I believe the rest of America is ready to finally fight back and put these rabid dogs down.

I think everyone who sat under the teachings of Jeremiah Wright, and others like him, understand perfectly for whom the revenge is targeted.

Click on the video box of the blonde doxie entitled: Why I’m Voting for Romney..ROTFLMAO x 100..!

I spit an Evil Neocon Tooth.

Revenge. What an adolescent attitude.
Its always “get even politics” for Obama to get back at
evil bankers, oil barons and anyone else that he perceives has undone the victims of his ideological “class strugle”
And were told he has no Marxist tendencies.
Okey Dokie.
He doesnt even have the ideological honesty to speak from personal experience but rather had adopted the class warfare bs, as many liberals do as a fashion statement that sells well on the pages of the NYTimes.
Three more days.

Obama has always been a trained rabble rouser. But that works better when speaking to an ACORN crowd than speaking to America, after four years with the reins. Americans watched as their 2008 revenge vote against Obama’s straw men has allowed Obama to toss billions to his political cronies, and act against American interests.

Barbra Streisand’s endorsement is making the rounds now, claiming Obama, not Romney, is on Israel’s side. But Israeli Jews favor Romney almost 3:1. In the US, Jewish support is down to something like 60:40 for Obama this year.

Considering Obama’s submission to al Qaeda in Libya, and support of the Muslim Brotherhood in the whole region, it would seem Obama is seeking revenge against American interests, on nearly every front. I don’t believe America will vote for Hope and Change and HATE again, despite the threats.

    Jewish support for the ‘rat presidential candidate usually hovers in the 75% range, so 60% is certainly down from that. But with obastard, considering his open hostility toward Israel, I just cannot even fathom 60%. It just buttresses what I’ve always said about American Jews, and that is that, by and large, most of them don’t give a rat’s patoot about Israel. If they did, their support for obastard would be 0%.

A community organizer is, by definition, not someone ok with the status quo. He is not seeking to bring people together. He is a professional agitator. A rabble rouser. Given Obama’s prior occupation as a community organizer and his past associations with radicals like Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, Rezko, Rashid Khalidi, etc. how on earth could anyone have ever expected him to be anything but a nasty, divisivie, far left ideologue?

The disturbing part is that Democrats willingly chose Obama to be their candidate and 53% of Americans who bothered to vote voted for him. Now Bill Clinton, the founder of the Democartic Leadership Conference which was created to groom sensible moderate Democrats for political power, is working harder than ever to re-elect the most divisive and left leaning president in my life – possibly ever. The DLC has now shut down because leftist billionaire Democrat donors like George Soros, Peter Lewis and members of the Democracy Alliance do not want to fund moderation. They want an even more radical leftward shift. The radical agenda of the current Democratic Party for government to control through bureaucratic and regulatory fiat the financial services, healthcare and energy industries now represents a greater threat to American prosperity and freedom than radical jihadists and al-Qaeda.

Glad to know I wasn’t the only one to find that word choice startling…. Historically, monarchs wanted revenge on those who threaten their reign?

    I recall that in the earlier times of his office I would ask why he (obama) did or said certain things. They puzzled me, as well as others who had similar questions. Eventually, an uneasy notion came to me. No, it couldn’t be true! Or, could it be? Was he being openly vindictive? Apparently, he’s now given me (us) the disturbing answer with his own words.

    Sedition.
    However Obama is more likeCromwell.
    But Cromwell got old & lost the glow”

I don’t object to Obama’s assertion that voting is the best revenge at all, and I would explain to him it’s a two-way street. Obama is about to learn just how true it is.

This is off topic, but it’s a feel good story that I hope you like.
Yesterday afternoon, on her way home from work, my daughter called to tell me that a young gentleman was standing at a busy intersection with two signs: one a Romney / Ryan sign, and another that said: “Yes, I’m black and I’m voting for Romney!” People were honking their horns, waving and giving him a thumbs up. He probably got a few “uncle Toms” thrown at him too.
Just thought you might like to hear this (it happened in Florida, by the way). People are aware and voting doesn’t and shouldn’t have anything to do with the color of one’s skin.

There ya go again, Professor, getting all logical – Obama’s people don’t care about logic, they care about feelings, and that’s what revenge is all about.

What is obvious to me is that O-Blame-O had one of those “Oh Shit, I pulled a Biden” moments. After he says Revenge, he pauses, and stumbles with the “But.. But…”

That’s all this guy has, the “But… But…”

A few months ago, I talked about controlling the narrative. What has happened over the past couple of months? The narrative has changed. Call it alternative media, but the American People have come to realize that the narrative of the Obama administration is a fallacy. We the People understand what the real narrative is. We have pushed it by getting involved and proving our point. WE put Obama and his administration/minions on the defense. All they have left is “But… But…”

On Tuesday, we will have the hope for the future and more than change left in our pockets.

“revenge is Obama’s rail”

So true, so evil.

My son likes to sneak up behind me when I’m reading LI and read over my shoulder.

He was watching when I played the Obama video and asked,

“Revenge? That doesn’t make any sense. He’s the one who’s messing up the economy. If you wanted revenge, wouldn’t you vote for Romney?”

A 13-year-old kid who sees reality more clearly than the pros at MSNBC.

This Romney ad was just televised down here, from the SuperPac not the campaign. Very telling of the integrity of Mr. Romney who shut down business and took 50 employees to NYC to find the 14 year old runaway daughter of an associate. In the primaries, Mr. Romney was not my first, second, or third choice but his campaign has shown a businessman of integrity, compassion, generosity who knows economics and can handle the executive branch.

Vote to take revenge on your fellow citizens????

I hope some of these quotes make it into his presidential biography…. you know the one his staff went in and edited on all the other presidents to include “Barack Obama”

[…] “Dividing Americans into groups and playing each against the other“, William A. Jacobson observes, “has been Obama’s modus operandi since the beginning of his political career.  Resentment and envy are the key emotions.” […]

The Seven Deadly Sins are his ideology’s rail.

Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath, Greed, Sloth

It exploits gradients and differentials for positive effect. It extorts concessions through emotional manipulation and appeals to people’s base nature.

So, Obama has switched from advocating for redistributive change to fomenting retributive change. That should have been expected.

Revenge, eh? Mr. Davis, I mean, Obama must not know about MLK, Jr.’s quote, “That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.” It is not surprising a guy like Obama, who would throw ex-navy seals under the RPG, would use that (Revenge) instead of “prosperity” or “humanity”.
