New Romney ad: “Revenge, or Love of Country.”

From those who missed it: the commercial is cut from two rallies yesterday:

The Republican nominee — who addressed a crowd approaching 25,000 people, the largest of his campaign — was referring to a comment made by the president during a rally in Springfield Ohio earlier in the day, after the crowd began to boo when he mentioned Romney’s name. “No, no, no, Don’t boo. Vote,” Obama told the audience. “Voting is the best revenge.”

Romney, who has been portraying Obama as a divisive leader in his stump speech of late, used the comments to highlight his point.

“Did you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for revenge,” he said, pausing and then repeating the line for emphasis. “For revenge. Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”

Three days until election day. Mitt Romney for President.

    Approaching 25,000? Fire Marshall said it was 30,000. Nice journalism from CBS.

    @mac: AP tried to sell 18000 and “low energy”. Got curbstomped for it.

  • the best revenge says:

    Zero says it is “the best revenge.”
    Revenge for what?
    Sounds like an assumptive plea to inner feelings of disgruntlement and “you owe me” attitude.
    That was not an accidental word choice.

    I do wonder about the full context of thr Prez’s comment. Mainly because full context makes these things even worse.
