As Republican challenger Mitt Romney makes much of President Obama's comment in a Friday speech that "voting is the best revenge," Obama aides say the comment reflects Romney "scare tactics."
Obama made the comment as part of a familiar speech riff; when audience members boo the mention of Romney's name, the president habitually says, "don't boo -- vote"
On Friday in Springfield, Ohio, Obama added the phrase: "Voting is the best revenge."
Asked about the comment, Obama campaign spokesperson Jen Psaki said Obama made the comment in the context that Romney is "closing his campaign with an ad full of scare tactics that's frightening workers in Ohio and thinking falsely that they're not going to have a job."On the stump, Romney has said, "vote for love of country, not revenge."
