From “Hope and Change” to “Revenge”

In 2008, Barack Obama pushed “Hope and Change.” Not a bad slogan until we all found out what he hoped to change: more taxes, an economic policy that’s strangling our economy, control of our healthcare, liberal Supreme Court judges, redefining marriage, full support of abortion, unconstitutional Executive Orders by the truck load, trampling on religious rights, diminished support for our international interests, seeming indifference to radical Islam’s terrorist agenda, and too much more to list here.

Now that President Obama could be on the verge of losing the election, he’s trying to energize his base with a possible preview of what’s in store for the nation. At a campaign rally in Springfield, Ohio, President Obama told the crowd that booed when he mentioned Mitt Romney, “Obama said, “No, no, no. Don’t boo, vote. Voting is the best revenge.”

Revenge? Revenge for what? Against whom? What is he planning?

He wants four more years to do what hasn’t worked for the past four years. Even so, the election is a tossup in most states. Liberals have accomplished what they set out to do. Create a perpetual dependent class of voters that they can count on in every election no matter how bad the economy is. This is a frightening prospect. If Obama and the Democrats can’t be defeated on Tuesday considering what the President has done to our nation in the past for years, we are in deep, deep trouble.

The revenge could be two more Supreme Court justices. Higher taxes on the most productive job creators in the nation, further restraints on personal freedoms and religious rights, more stimulus spending that will further dilute the value of our money with the result that prices will rise in an inflationary spiral, continued racial division and talk of class warfare, and an appeal to “equality” that could decimate the middle class.

Another four years of Obama will be a political war. Hopefully the revenge factor will not lead to anarchy and violence. There’s already talk of reprisals if Obama loses. What might happen if he wins? Will his victory incentivize some to take material revenge? Will we see people involved in more crimes against property owners?

Then there’s the revenge that’s possible by elements in our very liberal Statist bureaucracy. The revenge may have already started with the EPA no matter who wins tomorrow:

“On the eve of the 2012 election, more than 50 of President Obama’s EPA staffers are crashing to finish new greenhouse gas emission standards. The rules would make the construction of new coal-fired power plants nearly impossible. A government-imposed switch from coal to other forms of energy would cost the economy about $700 billion over several years, according to the Manhattan Institute.

This may be only the beginning of the coming revenge.

    This is the kind of thing Mr. Obama’s “leadership” inspires.

    Bill Maher on HBO recently: ”If you’re thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.”

    Paul Begala, Democrat operative: “California, Illinois and New Jersey – Places Where They’d Hunt Romney Down With Dogs.” [http://newsbusters.org]

    Chris Matthews says all who disagree with him and Obama are “pigs.”

    Barack Obama urges voters to take “revenge” on Romney and like-minded citizens.

    Obama’s henchwoman Valerie Jarrett says she can’t wait to win the election so she can “punish” all who stand opposed to her messiah.

    Michael Moore, speaking through a select group of elderly, threatens to “burn this mo********ker down” if Romney wins, directing a threat of personal violence against Romney should Obama lose.

    Special Assistant to the President Kareem Dale said that people with disabilities are going to be “absolutely killed” under the proposed policies of Mitt Romney and delivered a strong message to the crowd: “let’s win this mo********er.”

    The “Revenge” strategy worked for the Community Organizer when he was lying to poor folks . . . . it now, makes him look like what he really is; i.e. a single celled parasite!

It will be terrific never to have to see their faces again or listen to their lying socialism101 crap and the corrupt minions clustering around them stealing our money and ruining our country!

    “…reprisals if Obama loses”? STOP using delicate, nebulous, PC verbiag.e Blacks are openly threatening to go out and KILL random Whites if Romney is elected. Vague verbiage obscures the peril at hand. Read up on the crime rates, for DECADES now. It’s been pretty much Open Season ON Whites, since the 1970′s.

    Lberal media was right in 2008 Very Wrong 2010…

    As I am changing the channel, I catch enough of Obama to realize there is a distince difference between him and Mitt Romney. When Governor Romney speaks, he speaks with a passion. When Obama speaks, he speaks like whjat he is, an angry black man. I much prefer the passionate patriot.

  • The_American_Way

    The revenge statement by Obama provides a glimpse of how he really thinks. His phony hope and changes has been replaced by “revenge and vengeance”.

    • JeanB

      He is nasty and sneaky. Not a good thing. I fear the revenge he plans if given another term.

  • maggie

    All Christians, please continue praying that OUR GOD is listening, because he Knows how we are being treatesd because of some people dropping the name of God from their lives. We know he will accept them again, only if they prove to him HE is our Only GOD and he rules our nation.

  • Admiral America

    I wish most Americans were like the people on these type of sites. It’s clearly not the case when almost half the nation thinks Barry is a great President. I just can’t understand how these people can’t see through is BS!

    Obama is a DISGUSTING piece of HUMAN GARBAGE and has proven that over and over again! Let the ignorant Blacks riot and destroy their own communities….No brains, No headaches!! For our “president” to encourage civil unrest is simply IRRESPONSIBLE and UN-AMERICAN!! He continues to DIVIDE America!! : (

    My, my. Being born in Georgia, then living out most of my life in N.W. Florida (lower Ala), I thought I had seen redneck philosophy. This thread insults my basic belief about racism. We all have the same rights to our opinions, black, white, Red, Blue, or otherwise. Where the line should be drawn is our loyalty to the United States of America. People who insist on badmouthing other people just aren’t respectful of our 1st Amendment. People who destroy other peoples’ property over an election lost or won aren’t respecting the 5th Amendment. What it comes down to is that our current President is setting the example for those who would try to destroy our Constitution. Color/Race/National origin/religion are not the real issue. Now, language is an issue. We have a recognized language. It is not Spanish or French or gutter english. It is American-English. Even the President exhibits its importance to us all. Respect. It is a two way street. How long ago did Ms Aretha Franklin shout that out to us all??? jus’ sayin’

    This is all he is after, is revenge on this country for the islamic pigs who beheaded so many of OUR people on TV, this is what they want you to forget and lead you blindly right into HELL. This pig is the anti-christ and if elected will make good on his promises to the muslims and the islamic pigs and to Russia who already knew he would be elected in 08, they knew this in 92 and his name and everything about this pig. The Russians said, ” He is one of US”.

  • Victor Magilke

    The real Obama finally showed up. Instead of Hope and Change its now become revenge. Revenge against who? Is Obama still wanting revenge for slavery or revenge against white Christians because of his Muslim companions.? Is his revenge for those who cling to their guns and bibles? Who knows.
    I hope its not animosity for slavery. I don’t know of anyone living today that was ever a slave and I don’t know anyone who ever owned a slave. Its imperative that all American Christians vote for Romney/Ryan today. God Bless America.

    If Ovomit is re elected, it won’t be because of my vote. I voted against the SOB and am proud of it.
