Quote of the day

posted at 10:15 pm on July 31, 2009 by Allahpundit

“‘Could I mention, Steve, that I kept hearing during the campaign the stuff about McCain being weak on economics. They obsessed about this in the media. They never said Obama is weak on economics. I came to Washington as a Reaganite limited government tax cutter.’ He’s right about the media treatment. Neither candidate had a strong command of economics—certainly not Mr. Obama, as events have shown…

‘I remember being on the phone with President Bush, Vice President Cheney, the Treasury secretary and [Fed Chairman Ben] Bernanke. They assure me the world financial system is going to collapse if I don’t vote for the bill. So I do the impetuous and rash thing by saying, look, I have got to go back to Washington and see how I can help. And by the way, so did Obama—but it was McCain that was the impetuous one. Obama came back to Washington.’ Mr. McCain grumbles, ‘He was at the White House with me. But he wasn’t impetuous.’ This is the only time in our interview he shows any bitterness about the campaign…

‘Let’s face it,’ he says, ‘she galvanized our base in a way that I couldn’t. Everywhere she went she drew enormous and enthusiastic crowds like a rock star.’ He says his only regret in selecting the Alaska governor was that no one on the campaign predicted the ferocity of the assaults against her. ‘To the liberal left, particularly the feminists, she is their worst nightmare.’”

I wonder if anyone will ever get banned for criticizing ed. allah seems to hit back, he doesn’t get into it but lets people know he is listening(childishly). But allah gets the smart aleck kind of criticism. ed seems to upset people more and get serious blowback. I agree that he doesn’t read the comments, mainly because his impression of himself seems to be ballooning to a critical mass. I think he posts stuff and then goes back to concentrating on how he can promote himself. If I were to bet anyone gets banned for criticism instead of profanity or inappropriate comments it will be by ed.

working on the diabolical plan to avenge MB4’s banning.

He hasn’t been banned, that’s just an urban rumor. He was here one night this week. He was, however, brief and serious. But he was here. What would MB4 say that would get him banned? He makes most of his points with quotes or clever poems.

peacenprosperity on August 1, 2009 at 3:10 AM

I think he posts stuff and then goes back to concentrating on how he can promote himself.

peacenprosperity on August 1, 2009 at 2:30 AM

The banning of MB4 aside, I like Ed. He’s very productive and really pushes out a lot of material. But if he slowed down just a tad and paid a bit more attention to the comments the quality might improve somewhat, especially on multiple posts on the same subject… not that quality is a problem for him, but as with anything, there is always room for improvement. Feedback is often helpful to anybody in that regard.

If he had read our comments in the Honduras threads, in particular, he would have beaten the WSJ to the punch by a few weeks rather than following their lead.

FloatingRock on August 1, 2009 at 3:35 AM

Dear Cindy, I can support the following statement:

He hasn’t been banned, that’s just an urban rumor. He was here one night this week. He was, however, brief and serious. But he was here.

peacenprosperity on August 1, 2009 at 3:10 AM

Is it possible that you and others missed this post? Yes it is. And is it possible that some posters last night were, pardon me but, a little tipsy? Yes, it is. And is it possible that these unnamed posters were reading meanings into words that weren’t really meant? Yes, it is.

Therefore, I suggest all concerned treat this matter a little more soberly, with less wishful thinking, and less impetuously.

Please take the following statement from the QotD into consideration:

And by the way, so did Obama — but it was McCain that was the impetuous one.

So, let’s just forget all about this matter and not mention it again. Okay? Can we do this?

Yes we can!

As I’ve been saying for months to those conservative GOP-haters here who insist McCain is a liberal.

I read on a website this a.m. that many Congressman don’t want to hold townhalls anymore because they are so unruly (mind you, these are just Dem Congressmen who say this). their next excuse is that the townhalls are just too dangerous.

so if you want your Congressman to hear you, you better go to a townhall this month.

kelley in virginia on August 1, 2009 at 8:27 AM

For now, that means trying to stop budget busters like ObamaCare, but also saving a few million dollars at a time by cancelling museums in Nebraska, turtle crossings in Florida, and the endless flow of dollars to Democratic Rep. John Murtha’s airport to nowhere in Johnstown, Pa.

Pork is bad, but it is really sad to see turtles squished on the road.

Good morning folks.

Since we are sitting around yesterday’s QOTD thread in month old underware and sipping coffee waiting on today’s class to begin:

KERA, yesterday, Gwen Ifill(Washington Week) gave her panel this statement: “You would think that Cornyn and Hutchinson will support Sotomeyor because they need the hispanic vote in Texas.”

Identity politics as the ‘smart’ choice. Principles be damned.

I wonder, does Cornyn, and especially Hutchinson, know that the eyes of Texas are upon them?

Republicans in 2008 broke Reagan’s 11th commandment by going after Palin. They allowed the Democrats to successfully fracture and demoralize them. The atheist libertarians got squishy about Palin’s unashamed embracing of her faith. The pro-choice crowd was uncomfortable that she is 100% pro-life; they see it as an unsophisticated point of view, and they only support Republicans they feel are just saying what they must to get elected. The Rockefeller Republicans don’t care about anything but going to the right parties and being popular. They were sold on the “change” thing. An Obama vote was edgy and cool, even if they had to know deep down inside Obama is a radical leftist and classic tax-and-spend (even sit-and-spin) liberal.

Do you think it would be terribly rude of me to wander into one of Corrine Brown’s meetings? She’s close and she nuts. Obviously I wouldn’t say anything, just show up to show solidarity with the obviously too few Rep. in her district. As to sleep, I went to bed around 2:45 and got up around 8:00.

Hutchison’s a divisive quitter, leaving her senate seat to abscond with TX Governor seat, knowing full well that she won’t trump Perry, but that she will divide the GOP support.

Hutchison is to Texas as McCain was to the nation. Her aspirations for further power are meant to fail gifting power Left.

Is Hutchison going to play musical chairs with Perry, leaving both out of the game, two in one stroke? Or can Perry name himself Senator if she resigns early, and then leave the Gov. ticket open for her to duke out with Dewhurst who would assume the seat in transition?

McCain is undecided.

alliebobbitt on August 1, 2009 at 8:55 AM

Propaganda is packaged and marketed for the entire intellectual spectrum, not simply for the indolent of mind. No doubt, the sword of malice cuts deepest when the edge is refined. And that particular sword struck Gov. Palin deepest into her vitals to deliver the death blow. She remained standing given her determined faith. The follow up of countless swipes by the progressive status quo Republicans bled her entire family, including the innocence of her younger children, ridiculed simply for their existence as if they had no right to be. If the attacks were limited from the left, her resources required in self defense would not have been utterly consumed. It is the shame of America for having abused and discarded Gov.Palin without regard for her accomplishments in office as well as her integrity, both personal and professional. Republican leaders with their progressive members designed the media presentation of Gov.Palin persona non grata because she represents traditional “truth and the American way” as a woman; and leaving no stone unhurled, they subsequently denigrate all those who grant Gov.Palin the right to self determination, now being typecast as right wing radicals for holding to decency. Regardless of party affiliation, the status quo agenda remains to assassinate conservatism from the GOP ranks.

so if you like your Congressman, then see if you can go to a townhall of a nearby congressman that you don’t like. who will be checking voter registrations? ACORN? ha

kelley in virginia on August 1, 2009 at 9:25 AM

maverick muse on August 1, 2009 at 9:14 AM

Sad to say that I’m trapped (again) with the lesser of two evils choice. Hutchinson is a lionheart supporter of the troops, and a wishy washy on amnesty. Perry talks tough, then signs off on the railroad baron Trans-Texas-Cooridor.
Neither of them lifted a finger to help my son during his 2nd Amendment fight with the United States Army. If it wasn’t for congressman John Carter (TX-31), he and many other combat veterans would be facing less than honorable discharges(Yes, I took Perry and Hutchinson inaction personally).

My country is fighting for it’s life. I want my representatives to man a foxhole or get off the battlefield.

blatantblue on August 1, 2009 at 10:07 AM

I still don’t think McCain had a prayer of winning in 2008, but what disappoints me to this day is how he allowed himself to be walked all over by the media, by Dems, and by Obama and his campaign staff.

He kept asking us in the final days of the election to fight with him. But he never led by example. People at his rallies kept telling how angry they were. Not because they believed Obama was a closet Muslim(as the drive-bys tried to insinuate). But because they knew as we did that an Obama, Pelosi, and Reid triumvirate in Washington would lead to disaster for this nation.

I’m glad McCain didn’t roll over and become Obama’s lapdog as many feared he would after losing the election. I’m glad he’s speaking out against this administration’s economic policies. And I’m glad he’s FINALLY defending Sarah Palin after remaining silent for nearly a year of unwarranted and unconscionable smears from the left and even some on the right.

But if he wants us to fight with him this time, he needs to hold up his end of the bargain. Name these names you kept alluding to during the campaign. Provide a voice of opposition in the Senate against Obama and the Dems. Be that Reaganite taxcutter you once were. Fight for us and we’ll fight with you.

I have had the “pleasure” of being in fairly close proximity to her on 4 or 5 occassions and I can confirm she is as dumb as a stump.

I wouldn’t pin our defeat on a handful republicans going for Obama

But the election results showed a lower turnout than 2004. Fewer Republicans turned up to the polls for McCain than GWB. Some conservatives were happy with Palin and trusted McCain more. Some could never forgive his countless betrayals over the years. The hawks were happy with him. Then there was the handful of Obamacans encouraged by Frum, Brooks, Noonan, Buckley, Parker and even Krauthammer.

Obarfy had the money advantage

Undoubtedly.

a ripe political climate of anti-republicanism

You mean a biased, now state-run media.

better message discipline — the mccain camp was all over the map

John McCain pouted when his media friends turned on him; he was jealous of a star being born with Sarah Palin; he didn’t have the heart to go after Obama and sabotage his “historic” candidacy. The “celebrity” attacks worked, but this was even more than McCain could stomach. Forget Wright, Ayers… and Marx.

Cult of personality (and I think Obama is a major dork and dumber than Palin by a longshot). I suppose it’s the soft bigotry of low expectations. But you’re right that the pendulum swings and sometimes the stars line up for someone.

I can certainly discount most of it.

Good girl!

Right on, Cindy. This guy is not articulate, urbane, sophistacated or fo that matter, very intelligent. He rads well. That is it. Does anyone think it’s odd that the last two democrat presidents were bastards with no strong male influences in thier lives? Do the democrats look for pupets like this to groom?

I bet I can cause more trouble drunk blogging sober than you can drunk. Any day, young man.

Barack Obama. The gift that keeps on taking.

Loxodonta on July 31, 2009 at 11:45 PM

Yeah…taxing our cigarettes. Taxing our soft drinks.
Taxing our Big Mac’s.
Taxing our income.

But mostly taxing our patience.

Oops.

Wrong quote.

Barack Obama. The gift that keeps on taxing.

Loxodonta on July 31, 2009 at 11:53 PM

Corrected.

How do you blog drunk if you’re sober?

I’m a natural born idiot. Want to see my COLB?

It’s good to see that John McCain isn’t self delusional that’s refreshing coming from a member of our government…why shouldn’t he be bitter? He was playing by the rules and the opposition was using every dirty trick in the book….they still are.

It ain’t over John, like Senator Webb stated on the cover of his book “We were born fighting” Same goes for Sarah Palin we will wear the basterds down.

My dad (a noted drunk in our town) told me that when you get to “drunk”, keep drinking until you come back around to sober. Stick with it; it can take a while.

I feel horrible for Sarah. Just this morning the anonymous Alaska bloggers were reporting that Palin was getting divorced from Todd. Of course it turned out to be non-sense as her spokesperson just put out a statement. She needs to sue these anonymous people.
