(Newser) – Mitt Romney has stirred up a few headlines today over a little matter of revenge. Stumping in New Hampshire, Romney criticized President Obama for urging supporters to vote because "voting is the best revenge." Romney said, "Vote for revenge? Let me tell you: Vote for love of country." His campaign also released a "revenge"-themed ad. But The Hill reports that Obama made the remark yesterday to calm a Springfield, Ohio, crowd that was booing Romney.

"No, no, no," Obama said. "Don't boo. Vote. Voting is the best revenge." The presidential camps are also exchanging volleys over Romney's auto company ad and the effect of Superstorm Sandy on the campaign. One subject that seems off the table: Benghazi security, perhaps because Romney doesn't want to expose CIA Director David Petraeus to criticism, writes Michael Crowley at Time. But two major newspapers—the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal—have picked up the slack by slamming Obama on the issue, reports the Weekly Standard.

this guyh thinks that Obnama, in the office of president, referring to himself, shows some stuff that he finds nonsense Fact: jusing I is ok except when in grade school writing. Referring to what you do as commander in chief is ok since that is what took place and you are responsible for it. "WE" didn't not do it. He did it presipresident, did it. Bulls-Eyeyou have the grade school notion that referring to I is bad form. No I taught writing well over 20 years.

Here's great news and really great news. The great news is that Obama will win. The really great news is that we won't have to endure Mitt Romney on cable news anymore.
