The new Romney ad features footage of Obama, and then a clip of Romney saying that people ought to vote because of "love of country," a theme he reiterated at a tarmac rally on a chilly Saturday morning.If Obama goes back to the original cliche and tells someone that living well is the best revenge, can we expect Romney to get his knickers in a twist about that and come out against living well for reasons other than love of country?
"Yesterday, the president said something you may have heard by now that I think surprised a lot of people. Speaking to an audience he said, you know, voting is the best revenge. He told his supporters, voting for revenge. Vote for revenge? Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: Vote for love of country," Romney said, and the crowd of more than 1,000 cheered. "It is time we lead America to a better place."
This is one more desperate, reaching effort to paint Obama as slightly sinister and not quite American enough, along the lines of the "Obama apologized for America" lie. It's so transparent it's kind of laughable—and you almost have to hope Obama says something about killing people with kindness before election day.
Please give to help reelect President Obama.
