When President Obama the other day suggested that voters can get revenge.
By going to the polling -- on Tuesday.
And voting against governor -- Mitt Romney picked up on that offered a different message let's take a listen to president Obama's original remark in the governor's response.
And at the time the Republican congress.
And -- senate candidate by the name of Mitt Romney.

To vote for revenge.
I asked the American people to vote for love of country.

That you don't have the blue Mitt Romney's lies and -- troops in the Republican lies in -- -- dot blow it the effort and I campaigns.
For a hundred years that has been said a 100000 times.
Five many candidates bogey I didn't you are not prone to exaggeration -- well maybe not a hundred doubt that many many times been.
Hancock and both sides of the aisle look.
Democrats work with Republicans because our I.
Ideology is not our religion.
We are flexible we can compromise we can govern.
The Republicans -- congress right now are not -- ideologues they are the log on there aren't on -- on their believes and they don't -- bug spray that you really can't compromise with someone's religion and that's how they -- there approach to governing right now and that's been the problem in Washington Mitt Romney look.
Mitt Romney's -- -- Cameron Crowe some royalties at the end of his campaign that he will say.
Anything to get elected and I think it's time that's going to be a -- and they said it's in the -- say any.
Remember we savings to be up there without blockbuster -- It was six what's the and you are not on America live I don't have power right now -- -- -- and we're in the same -- -- let me ask -- because.
We're having fun but then you know it does seem like something that may be apologist you might say but.
That bit -- the folks who don't really love President Obama have been seeing a greater message in that an extension of a divisive -- that he's been accused of in the past.
I just like to start by saying everything that Chris that was false just don't just work it.
You're hearing here is doing if you've never heard anything so outrageous and I got about a 100000 times not a hundred not even -- -- tablet that President Obama.
As we heard it -- page doesn't meet -- congress doesn't meet with Republicans he doesn't meet with Democrats he doesn't bridge divides.
Even Richard Cohen in the Washington Post expressed his profound disappointment with rock and this is a far left wing got.
As XP has profound disappointment with -- Barack Obama's presidency this is the president.
That the Gallup polling people is found to be the most polarizing president in the history of the poll but they take -- polarizing president this is the president.
That is broken the American people -- the Univision interview.
Down into two camps and -- means to be punished.
And friends to be rewarded.
This guy is a failed president he is a polarizing president he divides us along lines of race class religion.
Corporate jet owners of -- anchors are evil it's the demonization of everything Mitt Romney is a cancer causing agent.
Who takes his dog on a family vacation in a way that Democrats don't approve out.
I mean this whole campaign but from the Obama campaign.
Has been -- early negative and Mitt Romney is striking contrast we're talking about us as Americans -- same boat together and at and bringing us together and working across the -- all things that Barack Obama definitely has failed.
This time because that you -- -- -- say and then those remarks -- there President Obama he's -- divisive and not post partisan as he promised he would be the post partisan.
Was something that night that is really something that Barack Obama said he would bring to washing.
I think he really underestimated how divisive the Republican Party we're -- what's going to be and how much they were gonna dig in against him when he took office we -- in a major crisis he expected people to work together just like President Obama.
Is working with Chris Christie in this crisis that I heard that's not President Obama expected the Republicans in congress to work -- -- to solve the fiscal crisis that this country was facing.
He was met with a -- can buy them.
And that's not his fault.
We'll look at that hole and it really haven't.
-- -- should -- focus on what what about the first two years we have super majorities in congress and Mitt Romney her and saying I won't waste any time.
Complaining about my predecessor or or focused on and divisive legislation that doesn't help with job he didn't have sixty votes in the senate for more than two months.
Because he -- there are certain jobs where he unless he's got birdied I was getting rid of all of us Mitch -- Well said my job -- to make sure he's a one term president not the fix America not to solve the problems but to make sure Barack Obama with a one term president and Mitch McConnell blocked every effort the president made to try to get this country back on track.
Mitch McConnell -- Mitch McConnell deserves a lot of the blame to why nothing gets done and most of the brain -- of why there's been nothing but.
Partisanship in Washington right now welcome it's moderate -- I'm only gonna get to Atlanta president last word.
-- -- -- -- Ridiculous first of all you -- Mitch McConnell out of context -- a fragment of his sentence.
And the rest of -- sentenced completely blows out of the water what your clinic.
Secondly Harry raised judgment on her -- looked -- campaign that -- says right -- secondly.
Harry Reid the Democrat leader in the senate just said the other day that that he's not going to cooperate with Mitt Romney when he becomes president.
Third it was -- it was Barack Obama who said elections have consequences we won.
You lost these guys changed the locks on the hearing about Democrats on Capitol Hill changed the locks on the hearing room door when they were debating the takeover of health care to keep the Republicans out so don't -- to me Argentina about working across trial and post partisan I mean.
Now that it has been the most partisan era odd way I can -- -- -- I'm -- credit not all of us.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Thank you say -- -- -- -- is Nina.
