Last week, President Obama said "voting is the best revenge" during his closing argument. In response, Mitt Romney said people should "vote for love of country," not revenge. Now, MSNBC is actually arguing that the Romney campaign is racist for responding to Obama's "revenge" comments and that Romney is the one pushing a theme of revenge.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews, unaware that President Obama was the originator of the phrase "voting is the best revenge," accused Mitt Romney of starting it because of racial animosity.
First of all, Chris Matthews is ignorant in this situation and doesn't realize Obama started the whole "revenge" controversy. Second, Matthews and Alex Wagner try to paint the Romney campaign as desperate in the clip above, but their own efforts to turn Romney's response to Obama's comments into a racial controversy is really where the desperation lies. According to Matthews and Wagner, responding Obama's own words is now racist, how predictable.
