Quotes of the day

posted at 10:57 pm on October 28, 2009 by Allahpundit

“’I have chosen not to endorse the Republican in the 23,’ Romney, R-Mass., said while campaigning for GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob McDonnell.”

***
“‘Certainly his views represent more closely to mine,’ said Huckabee. ‘I’m not taking a role in that with my PAC, simply because I feel like it would be inappropriate with me at this point — mainly because I’m already speaking to the Conservative Party next week. But it is not an endorsement speech, it is an awards speech, and I don’t want to get the two confused.’”

***
“[A]s the Tea Party movement has made clear, a passionate grassroots movement now exists, ready to embrace a leader.

“If the Alaska governor locks down that niche voting bloc ahead of the presidential primary season, she could face a smoother course to the nomination. On the flip side, if she’s seen as too closely aligned with the Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck crowd, her viability as a national candidate could virtually become nonexistent.

“By any measure, it’s a high-risk, high-reward strategy.”

voxpopuli on October 28, 2009 at 11:40 PM

Why is she a “loser?”
She’s lost twice–once running as Lt. Governor, then she went on to win as Governor…against an incumbent Republican.
She “lost” as McCain’s running mate, but that was his fault, not hers.
CW is that he only did as good as he did because of her.
McCain/Palin didn’t lose by much, even though McCain s*cked a$$ as a presidential candidate (Pardon my French!).
Sarah drug him along kicking and screaming and they almost won and would have won had McCain not done his suicidal “I’m halting my campaign for TARP” stunt.

BTW, the whole “quitter” meme is extremely old, tired and utterly devoid of meaning.
You know that, don’t you?

To talk the rest of us out of being excited about supporting Sarah Palin, you’re going to have to do a lot better than call her “a loser and a quitter.”

Annietxgrl on October 29, 2009 at 1:05 AM

One thing to remember about Reagan, his 11th commandment didn’t apply to RINOs. Reagan would very much be in the middle of the fight today were he alive and able. He would stand with the Sarah Palins of the world, too.

My guess is he would have been one of the first to endorse Doug Hoffman.

gary4205 on October 29, 2009 at 2:11 AM

Romney should have endorsed the independent, at least show some gonads. But this man has no dick.

Huck like Mitt, sitting on the fence. Stay at Fox Huck, keep playing that bass… that bass…. nice bass…. good bass.

I don’t know why Palin’s endorsement of Hoffman surprising, he shares the same conservative values, so this is a NO BRAINER for anyone that listens to Palin.

WASHINGTON – A Colorado company said it created 4,231 jobs with the help of President Barack Obama’s economic recovery plan. The real number: fewer than 1,000.
A child care center in Florida said it saved 129 jobs with the help of stimulus money. Instead, it gave pay raises to its existing employees.
Elsewhere in the U.S., some jobs credited to the stimulus program were counted two, three, four or even more times.

Sarah tried to warn them
But they held their blue noses up high
All the time she warned them
But they only passed her by

She tried to tell them
But I guess they didn’t care
They turned their backs and
Left her standing there

All the destroyed parts of America that have fallen after him
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everything Obama trashed each time he closed a freedom door
Destroyed parts of America lost forevermore

Obama tried to get me to take a job a while ago
When I saw it was just printing more fiat money for his thugs and cronies I didn’t want to go
The party Ronald Reagan gave to me
The Rinos just tore it all away
Now there’s nothing left for me to say

All the destroyed parts of America that have fallen after him
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everything Obama trashed each time he closed a freedom door
Destroyed parts of America lost forevermore

When years have passed they’ll start thinking
What fools they’ve been
They’ll look back into the past and
Think of way back then
They’ll know that America lost everything they thought that it could win
I guess they should have listened to their friends

All the destroyed parts of America that have fallen after him
All the lonely feelings and the burning memories
Everything Obama trashed each time he closed a freedom door
Destroyed parts of America lost forevermore

Destroyed parts of America lost forevermore

Saying she’s “utterly suicidal as a candidate” is still not saying anything substantive about Palin.
McCain was utterly suicidal as a candidate.
Sarah is a winner.
She has much more of a track record as a winner than as a “loser,” your preferred designation.

“Tell me what it will take?”

soundingboard on October 29, 2009 at 3:15 AM

I voted for her once and would certainly vote for her again.

But, we can’t make accurate predictions at this point one way or another, because of what hasn’t happened yet, that is, there is no context available to say why or if she would be elected.

Another way of saying it is, the water hasn’t gone under the bridge yet.

The implications of socialized medicine passing, cap and trade, the Obama Army, etc. are in the future not to mention how things will pan out in the foreign affairs arena and the possibility of another terrorist attack, civil unrest here, the Fairness Doctrine, controlling the internet blog sites, bailing out the MSM/newspapers and so on.

My feeling is that these Communists are not about to give up the power they’ve managed to accrue and continue to gain (thanks to the good sheeple of the US of A). Their un-Holy War against Conservatism, Christianity, capitalism, the Dollar/economy and the American people in general is only just beginning and they have tasted blood.

Sarah Palin is brilliant and realizes the above and knows that she can’t help us fight against them through conventional means (like the RNC is content with). Palin is our political guerrilla leader and she has to be of that mindset in order to counter the Castroite and his various Che-like minions that have taken over.

The sticky thing is, she’s too moral to use dishonest tactics, nor does she have to…all she needs is to prey upon the failures of the Communists and like Beck use their own words against them. She doesn’t have an ACORN to manufacture votes for her, nor would she allow this. No corrupt big city political machine. No thugs in radical unions. No sympathetic judges and legislators to fix elections. No retired generals who turned out to be Socialists. She has no way to entice nor bully Wall Street financiers. No college professors, no Hollywood actors/directors to foment propaganda. No ACLU to serve as ideological attack dogs. No newspapers or other news organizations to spew propaganda for her. No Saudi princes to give her money. No European big wigs hoping she’ll get elected. No support from Mexican immigrants, nor blacks. Not even Republican politicians nor RNC surrogates to back her on the talking head shows. Even few Conservatives on Fox News mention her or if they do fail to offer support.

So, how does she get around all that? We’ve been seeing it.

Norman Blizter on October 28, 2009 at 11:26 PM

Are you really that dense? This wasn’t about not “handl(ing) the heat”. It was about avoid bankrupting her family and the State of Alaska by defending each and every frivolous allegation brought up against her.
But, I guess Obama supporters, just like Barry himself, think it’s okay to just spend taxpayers money without any thought as to the long term impact.

So, it actually was about being able to handle the heat. By castrating the scum that was hell bent on seeing the taxpayers of Alaska screwed.

Detroit mosque leader killed in FBI raids
Paul Egan / The Detroit News

Detroit — The leader of a Detroit mosque who allegedly espoused violence and separatism was shot and killed Wednesday in an FBI gun battle at a Dearborn warehouse.

Luqman Ameen Abdullah, imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit, was being arrested on a raft of federal charges including conspiracy, receipt of stolen goods, and firearms offenses.

Charges were also filed against 11 of Abdullah’s followers. Eight were in custody Wednesday night awaiting detention hearings today; three remained at large.

A federal complaint filed Wednesday identified Abdullah, 53, also known as Christopher Thomas, as “a highly placed leader of a nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group.” His black Muslim group calls itself “Ummah,” or the brotherhood, and wants to establish a separate state within the United States governed by Sharia law, Interim U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg and Andrew Arena, FBI special agent in charge in Detroit, said in a joint statement.

“He regularly preaches anti-government and anti-law enforcement rhetoric,” an FBI agent wrote in an affidavit. “Abdullah and his followers have trained regularly in the use of firearms, and continue to train in martial arts and sword fighting.”

The Ummah is headed nationally by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who is serving a state sentence for the murder of two police officers in Georgia.

When agents entered the warehouse, four of the men obeyed orders to surrender but Abdullah opened fire and was shot to death, Berchtold said. An FBI dog [be there such a place the Dog will go to Heaven but the Imam will go somewhere else] was also shot and killed, she said.

State Governor – EXECUTIVE who has hire/fire authority and who has to make final decision by herself

U.S. President – EXECUTIVE who has hire/fire authority and who has to make final decision by himself

point guard – EXECUTIVE position on a TEAM

Sarah Palin has more EXECUTIVE experience as a point guard for her CHAMPIONSHIP team than Obama and Biden had by 2008 COMBINED.

Five truths and myths about Sarah Palin:

1)Sarah Palin does not sell well to independents.

CNN had her favorables at 41% among indies; so did Gallup about 2 weeks ago. Obama’s avg. with indies is now about 45. What people often forget is that indies are not monolithic, that they are segregated into various categories including independent conservatives, independent moderates and independent liberals.

No rational person can expect Sarah to appeal to independent liberals, but she could dominate among independent conservatives and the tea party crowd and pick up her share among independent moderates. Add this to her F among the “base” you could have a formidable force.

2)Obama is behind the efforts to bankrupt Palin

Check the various names: Elton, Munger, Rouse, Moore, Devon-it all leads back to Obama

3)Levi is bought and paid for by Soros and Obama

Check who Levi is connected with in the pistachio business: the Resnicks-big time supporters of Obama

4)Sarah is unelectable.

Her overall F/UF according to CNN are 42/51. Sure they need improving but they are not awful.

In addition she sits in a solid 2nd spot without having hit ‘the playing field’ yet, as she has remained “dark” over the last 3 months except for her Facebook postings. That will change on Nov. 16th when she goes on Oprah.

5)Sarah is a “quitter”.

The definition of a “quitter” is someone who gives up easily, a DEFEATIST, someone who CONSISTENTLY expects or accepts failure. Akin to that definition is being spineless or fatalistic.

That is not Sarah Palin. She is a positive high-energy courageous person who believes she can change her circumstances through hard work and determination. Anyone who knows her well will testify to that.

Should Zero keep on vacationing despite responsibilities in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Israel, and domestic issues he may find a change of employment earlier than expected.

Agreed with those hinting that much of the media running against Palin is because the media’s beloved Zero is plummeting so rapidly. The State media approach isn’t much different from precisely one year ago. A year ago Palin was attracting huge numbers to political rallies. Presently she is attracting huge numbers for book sales and has helped Hoffman become a force in the NY political arena.

By that same logic, Obama is not the marxist, commie, anti-freemarket, liberal, racist appeaser you want him to be: “Judd Gregg, the third-term Republican senator from New Hampshire, will soon leave his seat to join Barack Obama’s administration as commerce secretary”. Mr. Gregg turned him down to prevent the 60 votes in the senate.

However, there are more Czars than in Russia, so he has that going for him…and that excessive spending thingy.

What is worse is the filthy lying coward showed up at Dover AFB for a photo-op last night to get his picture in the press of watching returning war dead. If the rat bastard traitor really cared about those troops and their families he would stop dithering.

Hey Obama! How many men have to die before you put down the golf clubs and do your damn job???

Agreed. An Obama peddler like Couric would have boot prints across her sorry back side and her mug mounted over the Palin fire place now that the shackles applied by McCain’s doltish campaign advisers have been removed. Sarah succeeds as the Sarah free of the restraints of Schmidt et alia who tried to morph her into McCain lite with a higher voice.

It is interesting where many of Palin’s biggest detractors are a year later. Couric is doing her best to keep CBS “News” solidly in last place. Dave “The Perv” Letterman is trying to pretend there’s no casting couch at his In Your Pants Productions while his wife / former employee (if she has any sense) should be colder to him than the Late Show studio. Charlie Gibson can’t recall major events. No telling what Brian Williams is doing unless it involves hair care products. Wolf Blitzer has to get a welfare handout to remain a contestant for Final Jeopardy when not “fact-checking” SNL spoofs. Joe Biden is (nobody tell him) still Joe Biden. Zero is trying to blame FoxNews. Powerhouse Beck has helped Breitbart, O’Keefe & Giles uncover and devastate ACORN. And now Sarah Palin has become a top selling author.

I noticed a few clips of Zero’s photo-op on local TV last evening. It reminded me of Zero having been more worried about face time for Chicago’s Olympics bid than meeting Gen. McChrystal’s in Copenhagen. Clintonian in its creepiness towards national defense priorities.

As always, it’s all about the zero.

He wasn’t at Dover for any reason other than the polls show that most Americans agree that the bastard is spending far too much time golfing and jetting off to Europe for fun than in doing his job. The dithering charge is sticking because it is true and the rat bastard traitor knows it.

Grow Fins on October 29, 2009 at 8:03 AM

Demonstrating, yet again, the intellectual level of the average Palin supporter. ANYONE with a college degree seems “brilliant” to you, don’t they?

voxpopuli on October 29, 2009 at 4:18 AM

Voxpop, you exemplify the faux-elitist mindset. I have a postgraduate degree with honors and I’ve been working as a professional for twenty-five years. But I support Palin, and so do a great many of the people I know who have similar backgrounds and experience.

Now, according to the talking points, you’re supposed to make a lame quip about my opinion being based on her attractiveness. Go ahead, I’ll wait:

Done? OK. Now, shut up and listen: it’s bad enough to listen to the Dems denigrate all conservatives as uneducated and illiterate without having to hear it from an asserted Republican. Stow it.

Venusian Visitor on October 29, 2009 at 8:11 AM

Here’s my advice to you: Stop bying the Kool-aid line around here, that just because you believe strongly she’s a loser of a candidate — and I do — that you must hate her. voxpopuli on October 29, 2009 at 1:11 AM

You are not making sense. Let me state it clearer in case you missed it: if Sarah Palin ran for office in 2012 I’d vote for her in a heartbeat. I don’t know where you got the idea above. My advice about the 11th commandment was a nudge to you: disagree with her if you will, but stop the hate. Jesus. Have you been smoking something? Because I tried to talk to you with civility (something my husband and father both advised me to work on, as I scream regularly at the TV) you take that somehow as a pass to make assumptions about me (my apologies if I’ve made assumptions about you) and put words in my mouth. So Vox? STFU, I’ve lost all patience with you.

Annietxgrl on October 29, 2009 at 8:13 AM

Only idiots or haters call Sarah Palin a quitter, or perhaps those who are too stupid to understand her strategy, which was brilliant. Mitt and Huck, same old politics as usual. People are tired of it; they want a leader who loves this country and has courage, neither of which they possess. Palin, on the other hand, has courage and integrity, and that terrifies all of them.

I agree on the picture of Sarah, come on, Allah, being passive aggressive is only too revealing.

texanpride on October 29, 2009 at 8:43 AM

Tim C commenting on the first page of comments was so simply profound in just a few words.

Sarah Palin will follow her words with actions. Good, bad, or ugly she will stand by her principles and convictions, and poll numbers be damned! Unlike Romney and Huckabee, who will always, ALWAYS put political expediency ahead of their values. And what happens in that scenario? Conservatives will be on the short end of that stick–just like we were with McCain, and currently with Graham, Snowe, Collins…. When are we, as conservative voters, going to vote based on our convictions–not simply on who we think can get elected?
I do not trust for one minute the polls that have Huckabee out in front for 2012. DO NOT LET THEM CHOOSE OUR CANDIDATE AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To Romney and Huckabee I say, pull up your skirts and act like you’ve got a pair!

Annietxgrl on October 29, 2009 at 8:13 AM

Don’t let anyone tell you that screaming at the TV isn’t a good idea. It keeps you from someday having a meltdown involving squad cars surrounding your house, the SWAT team and you with a Remington 12 gauge.

Yes, and it’s outrageous that he would use the bodies of our dead soldiers as props for a cheap PR stunt. If he really wanted to show respect for those soldiers, he’d have been there without cameras, and long before it became a political necessity for him.

Clyde5445 on October 29, 2009 at 9:46 AM

The thesis of this simply makes no sense to me. Any candidate’s principles/beliefs will be revealed by that candidate in the usual ways. The issue for some candidates will be that they are truly connected to the Bush administration. The crash crashed more than a few political hopefuls, in my opinion. People know that they do not want to repeat this catastrophe.

It’s actually those candidates who will find it hard to gain traction.

AnninCA on October 29, 2009 at 9:46 AM

What the hell was that that Huckabilly said? Did he just punt, vote present, straddle the fence or refuse to take a risk?

I think we’ve got a bunch of those in D.C. already we need someone with some balls and so far Sarahs’ got the most.

Well she was a basketball player!

SKYFOX on October 29, 2009 at 9:55 AM

One thing to remember about Reagan, his 11th commandment didn’t apply to RINOs. Reagan would very much be in the middle of the fight today were he alive and able. He would stand with the Sarah Palins of the world, too.

My guess is he would have been one of the first to endorse Doug Hoffman.

gary4205 on October 29, 2009 at 2:11 AM

I’m thinking, then as now, Ronnie would have invited the liberal republicans to find a party where they would be more welcome.

A federal complaint filed Wednesday identified Abdullah, 53, also known as Christopher Thomas, as “a highly placed leader of a nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group.” His black Muslim group calls itself “Ummah,” or the brotherhood, and wants to establish a separate state within the United States governed by Sharia law, Interim U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg and Andrew Arena, FBI special agent in charge in Detroit, said in a joint statement.

Christopher Thomas? Total jail Muslim. But Ummah? That sounds like an Obama speech.

alliebobbitt on October 29, 2009 at 11:22 AM

Huckabee and Romney are not taking a position because they are whoring after the republican establishment’s support when they do run in 2012. Both of them are turning my stomach – and to think I once supported Romney, ugh . . . makes me question my own judgment.
