Quotes of the day

posted at 10:52 pm on September 2, 2009 by Allahpundit

“There are other potential pitfalls: an intra-party revolt by liberals if he ditches the public insurance option; creating unrealistic expectations at a time when many in his party would opt for quiet deal-making; and the ever-present hazard of presidential overexposure – which would permanently dilute Obama’s ability to influence national debates…

After a devastating August that saw a host of humiliating town hall demonstrations and an alarming drop-off in Obama’s personal popularity, ‘He had no choice, he had to do something,’ a senior house leadership aide told POLITICO.

‘It’s fish-or-cut-bait time.’”

***
“What accounts for the global electorate’s growing disgust with the political overclass? Try this: No matter the ideological cast of these governments, they all hold in common one policy: the inexorable upward march of national indebtedness. It has arrived at the edge of the cliff…

In short, the lumpen electorate works, and the lumpen bureaucratariat spends. They get away with it because they have perfected the illusion that no human hand causes these commitments. The payroll tax just happens. Entitlements are ‘off-budget,’ presumably in the hands of God. This is government without the responsibility of governance…

This is hardly a fair fight. The political overclass everywhere holds the power to print money and grab it back with taxes and inflation. Still, the election returns suggest that something is stirring. Maybe we should call it the revolt of the masses.”

***
“Presidents always encounter rough patches. What is unusual is how soon Mr. Obama has hit his. He has used up almost all his goodwill in less than nine months, with the hardest work still ahead. At the year’s start, Democrats were cocky. At summer’s end, concern is giving way to despair. A perfect political storm is amassing, and heading straight for Democrats.”

The guy who said the congressman had changed his mind a little bit then went on to say he was now for the single payer option. Interesting since that’s not even on the table. I think the mask slipped a bit.

It’s all one big happy family.

The thing that pisses me off is, we knew this before the election.

The dots were connected (perhaps not to this extent) but the info was out there.

This is going to be a b!tch to undo.

The Public Option spells the eventual death knell of private insurance and the enslavement of the people to government. That power is dangerous and should not be wielded by government.

I want to radically reduce government, not expand it. I want to curtail it, not empower it. I want to limit its powers to increase the power of the people.

No thanks on any government option. Not no but hell no. I do not have insurance right now and I do not care. But what I do care about is my liberty and I do not trust the radicals in the WH.

Ahhh…. Trolls…

As was asked by myself, at GenCon, in 1980, of Gary Gaygax…

By definition, Trolls are Loathsome and Rubbery… does that mean they bounce?

Sadly, I never got an answer…

The State of the Union Address, mandated by the Constitution…

Actually, a speech by the president himself is not mandated by the Constitution. All that the Constitution says is this: “He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Yes, George Washington did give the speech himself, but the man is an exception to the rule in many ways and not just this. Jefferson thought an actual speech by the president was too much like the monarchical “speech from the throne”, so he just delivered a written report and a clerk read it out loud.

It was Woodrow Wilson, one of the first progressive presidents, that revived the speech form of the information presentation, and given how little he regarded the United States Constitution, you can be assured that the “Constitutional mandate” wasn’t what he had in mind.

We have to kill Obamacare before it starts. If it starts it will be like social security.

How do you UNdo social security? Tell the younger generation they can opt out? So… then what happens to “our seniors”? It’s the perfect Ponzi scheme. All the ones who created it are dead and it’s our problem. It will bankrupt America but they don’t care.

Wow Romeo. No offense. That was old school. When I started in 82 it was AD&D then we sort of lost interest by the time 2ndAD&D rolled around. No TV, lots of books, I will say this it awoke my interest in reading. Good times. Has served me well these past years.

elduende on September 3, 2009 at 12:48 AM

Whenever Barack Obama has faced political crisis, he’s rescued himself with a big, sweeping, earth-shifter of a speech.
===========================================================

Its speech after speech,into ad nauseum speech!!

Well,theres a new CRISIS! Speech Time!

Distraction,hey its speech time!

Domestic Right Wing Terrorists,Speech time once again!

Well,the Children,need to hear a speech,over their
schools PA system!!

The whole Obama Administration is nothing but a speech!

=========================================================

Look’n forward to his Resignation Speech!!

There IS NO HOPE!

There IS NO CHANGE!

But,there IS, SPEECHES R Us tho!!

At the year’s start, Democrats were cocky.

It is called ‘Victory Disease’. The Dems should ask Tojo about it.

Now, are we starting to suffer the same way. Yes Barry is down. Yes the Dems are scrambling. That doesn’t mean we have a KO. Keep swinging. Kick, bite, scratch, claw, whatever. Let us not get ‘cocky’ and squander this opportunity.

It’s really kind of simple. The ss program can be ended or sharply reduced by 1) letting people decide whether they want to enter the system i.e. don’t force everyone to join. 2) give a lump payout sum to retirees who would like that (I think you would be surprise how many would just take the money and run, I would). 3. Create an entitlement (there are already so many so what’s one more)
for those retirees who want to continue receiving ss payments. I think that eventually ss would fade away as few people would enter the system willingly.

docdave on September 3, 2009 at 1:07 AM

It’s really kind of simple

Get the liberal democrats on board which will never going to happen. Redistribution of Wealth is a moral imperitive with them and as socialists they hate the idea of self-suficiency.

Never gonna happen. SS is their baby, has been for 70 years. It was one of the things that locked them in power for decades. They won’t let one of their monuments fade away.

False sense of security.
These people have been waiting decades..passing their mental illness from one generation to another. They. Will. Not. Stop.

if it takes another 20 years, it doesn’t matter. Their mindset is like that of terrorists. They don’t matter, now doesn’t matter.
These people are insane.

Call her office and say you are from Maine and represent a group of seniors against obamacare. It doesn’t matter if you don’t live in Maine. Find a zip code and town name off the net and call her now. Or say you are a moderate dem who voted for her, and you are against obamacare or any public option. We need to burn her local Maine offices as well as Washington. Call her now before she caves to the libs. Call her now!!!!

The radicals see this as there best chance to fulfill their dreams and “tear it all down.” They want to fundamentally “transform” America. If they could make every employee in the health care industry in the US a government employee, it would. Most of those employees would end up in a union which would become the largest labor union in the world. Every American would have to deal with the unions and politicians for health care just like most are forced to do in the public education of their kids.

The Dems want the “Public Option” because that is the fast track. They will settle for a “Co-Op” as that will eventually lead to single payer, it will just take a bit longer to bleed out the private insurers.

The Dems will press ahead on this because they just can’t help themselves. It is who they are. It is their reason for being. This is the golden ring for them. If they can control your health care, they can control your life.

Most Americans instinctively realize this and that is why they are riled up. I have no love for health insurance companies, but they can’t throw me in jail.

We go back to the Constitution.

No entitlements. If they want to have a welfare state they can move to Amerikka, and leave the new Republic alone.

If the new Republic strictly adheres to the Constitution, they won’t be able to wreck it as they did to the original one.

“Stalingrad – Tractor Works – Just as my brother rolls two snake eyes to berzerk his last squads and cc my last officer, divine intervention arrives in the form of Lucky the family dog flattening the city (and the board) and scattering the 1st Guards to the four winds like the 82nd on D-Day scattered all over Normandy.

No! No secession for the good guys. There has gotta be a way to reject states like NY, CA, IL, MASS, MI, etc. If not actual removal from the union, refuse to admit representatives. The good guys are the only ones to be trusted with the Constitution and a conservative history. Fascist/liberals need not apply.

This quote is way too optomistic. How many democrats can Obama campaign for to help get them elected? The answer is NONE! Obama is below the political mendoza line! He is below 50% approval!

Who is going to do the Republican rebutal to this?

Freddy on September 3, 2009 at 3:01 AM

Repairing the damage even a single term of D.L. Bambi will take a concentrated effort. To be sure there will be foreign interruptions to complicate matters. There will be no victory. Only the chance to restore our republic. And we do not need another/rewrite Constitution. It has and continues to serve us well. Even D. L. must tiptoe around it after forty or seventy years of preparation.

So much work. But a most worthy task.

After a devastating August that saw a host of humiliating town hall demonstrations and an alarming drop-off in Obama’s personal popularity, ‘He had no choice, he had to do something,’ a senior house leadership aide told POLITICO.

Don’t just do something—STAND THERE!

He had no choice, hmm. Sure he did there little white house aide. He had a choice back in February to pass a stimulus bill that would actually stimulate something, he chose not to.
He had a choice to not float trial balloons for idiotic ideas such as having veterans pay for for war-related injuries, or pursuing the CIA–but he chose to float those trial balloons anyway–despite the outcry. Shameless.
He had a choice to represent the United States as a proud President of the greatest country on earty, instead he chose to subjugate his own, and ours by proxy, countenance to a Saudi king.
He had a choice to provide leadership, vision and consistency on his major administration issues, he chose not to do that.
Finally, he had a choice to be truthful, and chose not to.
And they’re now surprised about the predicament he’s in. And they’re now saying he needs to do something.

These people in the White House choose to align themselves with a man who cannot fundamentally connect with American people during this time. These people must begin to realize that the star they hitched their wagons too is falling and falling hard. Moreover, Barack Obama has no choice to do something and that something ought to be to start making better choices.
The only thing larger than Barack Throckmorton Obama’s ego right now is the impending crater that will be the aftermath of his utterly failed presidency.

I could have chose not to write this, but I believe I chose correctly.

Mrs.Toljaso on September 3, 2009 at 8:01 AM

Let’s not fogot here – next week’s speech to Congress will be Ogabe’s SECOND “ZOMG! LET’S SAVE OBAMACARE!” speech.

The last one didn’t go well. I predict this one won’t either unless …

He stuns us.

And to do that he’ll have to look at his libbie base square in the eye for the television camera and say … “Eff You”.

And he won’t do that. :D

Here’s a newsflash – the fall of Ogabe in the polls is only partly due to ObamaCare. What Ogabe is dealing with in reality is the fact that Americans are coming to see HIM for who he REALLY IS – and they’re not liking what they see. And they are coming to see Democratic corruption as even worse than GOP corruption was.

And what’s more … Many of us here on HA complain about PRO-Obama bias in the media and that is certainly true for 90% of the media. However – FOX NEWS is reaping pornographic audience numbers – doubling, tripling MSNBC et al (combined). For an analogy – you could envision a room full of Lilliputians and one Giant. Even though the cute Lilliputians have a lot of spunk – the Giant can kick all of their asses and that is what is happening. LOOK AT THE FOX RATINGS.

That is Ogabe’s other problem – the TRUTH about him is getting out.

Once the people are “smarted” – you can not “un-smart” them.

Mark my words – he’s lost their trust. He will have to sway radically right to regain it. Nothing less will suffice.

HondaV65 on September 3, 2009 at 8:02 AM

Gird your loins folks.

Obama is going to Capital Hill Tuesday with the message – green light the vote, pass it in the house AND senate with a simple majority and I will sign it.

This will pass. There is no one that can stop it. The GOP doesn’t have the votes and the moderate dems don’t have the guts.

tatersalad on September 3, 2009 at 8:03 AM

The people behind all this, Ayers, Axeltool, any one of these jerk-off czars, are not elected officials. They are “out-of-the-closet communists. They are seditionists. They are anarchists. They are frankly, very real enemies of our country. We have a dangerous enemy presenting a clear and present danger to our Republic. At some point, we have to stand up, even forcefully, to put an end to this. Voting in 2010 and 2012 will be critical. More importantly, we have to band together to watch and act on the thugs who will try to prevent their “leaders” from being tossed out. However, it should not stop there. Once we regain control of our country, we should hold these slobs to the maximum accountability for their treachery.

No, I didn’t change sides I was just unclear in my comment. Sorry. Remember the “townhall” that The Won had on ABC a month or so ago where no opposing advertisment was allowed and no time given to opposition view? That’s what I meant.

Now, are we starting to suffer the same way. Yes Barry is down. Yes the Dems are scrambling. That doesn’t mean we have a KO. Keep swinging. Kick, bite, scratch, claw, whatever. Let us not get ‘cocky’ and squander this opportunity.

This is more than a bare-knuckle brawl. This is a fight to the death. Our opponent has sworn to his pagan god to kill us. We must get up early and kill him first.

AnninCA, are you also AnnfromCA on Huffo? The postings are sure similar, but has a conservative take to get a rise out of Liberals.

I don’t know about Huffo but I do know it is one and the samefrom No quarter and we know how that turned out.

Cindy,

Admittedly, my ? Was a little tongue in cheek…;)
I just hope my combining the two threads wasn’t all that confusing…

Nope, your comments were fine.

Cindy Munford on September 3, 2009 at 10:19 AM

kool…;)

Curt Schilling for Senator- Hmmmm….interesting, it is possible the masses in Mass have had enough of the liberal agenda yet? That would be sooo sweet!!!

Historicly, there are TWO times the President addresses both Houses of Congress…

The State of the Union Address, mandated by the Constitution…

And when they are about to declare WAR.

I find this address, troubling. Does Obama now think he is declaring WAR? becaue unless my calender is wrong, it aint time for the State of the Union yet.

I believe that Obama is convinced that he can keep the country on a certain path just by the sheer awesomeness of his speech.

Epic fail

No! No secession for the good guys. There has gotta be a way to reject states like NY, CA, IL, MASS, MI, etc. If not actual removal from the union, refuse to admit representatives. The good guys are the only ones to be trusted with the Constitution and a conservative history. Fascist/liberals need not apply.

Why not? America was birthed from secession… secession from the British crown. The Pilgrims came here in an act of secession from British religious persecution.

We can’t “eject” states – that’d be harder than doing what has precedence: secession.
