    Both of them, IMO.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    I am going to give it to Romney on this one. Higher road and all of that.

    Re: Who is right?

    I wouldn't call it "right or wrong" in this instance, seeing as voters have a wide variety of reasons for the way they lean in any given election. Some are voting out of revenge or strictly ill feelings towards a particular candidate (i.e. "Anybody but Obama), while some legitimately feel that the country is at stake (or so we hear every 4 years). Ideally though, one would hope the majority of voters participate based on patriotic motivations as opposed to "revenge."

    Since Obama is the incumbent and since he had a Democratic House and Senate when he came into office, revenge against who? For for revenge against Obama '08 by voting for Obama '12?

    No idea what the context for either quote is.

    If for Obama's quote he was getting booed out of the building and said that, he has my utmost respect. If he was standing beside romney and romney was the one getting booed, it's pretty empty - as much as romneys cookie cutter declaration is.

    It was at an Obama rally. They were booing Mitt Romney.

    Romney is right. Classy not trashy is the way to go.
