Do You Vote for Revenge, or Love of Country?


A nice closing ad from the Romney campaign. “Vote for love of country.”

VIDEO TEXT: “Revenge Or Love Of Country?”

VIDEO TEXT: “11.02.2012”

MITT ROMNEY: “[D]id you see what President Obama said today? He asked his supporters to vote for revenge — for revenge.” ·

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: “[D]on’t boo. Vote. Vote. Voting’s the best revenge.”

VIDEO TEXT: “11.02.2012”

MITT ROMNEY: “Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”

VIDEO TEXT: “What Is Your Reason For Voting?”

MITT ROMNEY: “I’m Mitt Romney and I approved this message.”

I don’t know how those few remaining undecided voters will react to this ad . . . but it strikes me as just the right tone, and contrast, to end this campaign.

I’m told this ad will be rotated into existing Romney campaign buys in swing states.
