Quotes of the day

“‘Unfortunately, there is an elitism within the Republican establishment,’ Huckabee told Klein. ‘And it’s one of the reasons the Republicans have not been able to solidify not only the tea party movement but solidify conservatives across America.’…

“Huckabee’s resentments date back to his 2008 presidential bid, which drew dismissal and even paid attacks from a Wall Street-backed GOP establishment that favored Mitt Romney and others and saw Huckabee as suspect on taxes.

“‘I’ve been on the receiving end of some of that when I ran for president. A lot of the establishment types were very contemptuous toward me and treated me like some backwater,’ Huckabee said. ‘And that’s one of the things that happens when you didn’t go to the right school and you’re not a regular [attendee] at the proper cocktail parties on the D.C. social circuit.’”

***
“We are watching the maturation of the cognitive stratification that Richard J. Herrnstein and I described in ‘The Bell Curve’ back in 1994. When educational and professional opportunities first opened up, we saw social churning galore, as youngsters benefited from opportunities that their parents had been denied. But that phase lasted only a generation or two, slowed by this inescapable paradox:

“The more efficiently a society identifies the most able young people of both sexes, sends them to the best colleges, unleashes them into an economy that is tailor-made for people with their abilities and lets proximity take its course, the sooner a New Elite — the ‘cognitive elite’ that Herrnstein and I described — becomes a class unto itself. It is by no means a closed club, as Barack Obama’s example proves. But the credentials for admission are increasingly held by the children of those who are already members. An elite that passes only money to the next generation is evanescent (‘Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations,’ as the adage has it). An elite that also passes on ability is more tenacious, and the chasm between it and the rest of society widens

“There so many quintessentially American things that few members of the New Elite have experienced. They probably haven’t ever attended a meeting of a Kiwanis Club or Rotary Club, or lived for at least a year in a small town (college doesn’t count) or in an urban neighborhood in which most of their neighbors did not have college degrees (gentrifying neighborhoods don’t count). They are unlikely to have spent at least a year with a family income less than twice the poverty line (graduate school doesn’t count) or to have a close friend who is an evangelical Christian. They are unlikely to have even visited a factory floor, let alone worked on one.

“Taken individually, members of the New Elite are isolated from mainstream America as a result of lifestyle choices that are nobody’s business but their own. But add them all up, and they mean that the New Elite lives in a world that doesn’t intersect with mainstream America in many important ways. When the tea party says the New Elite doesn’t get America, there is some truth in the accusation.”

***
“As the 2010 campaign draws to its raucous close, the Republican Party’s biggest donors are slowly beginning to choose sides, with some still looking for a strong alternative to a populist conservative movement that makes them uneasy.

“The big New York, Texas, California and Florida donors who traditionally play a key role in choosing the GOP nominee lined up behind George W. Bush in 2000 and, largely, John McCain in 2008.

“This year’s early favorite appears to be Mitt Romney, donor sources confirmed to POLITICO, who has already lined up quiet commitments from more than a dozen top names, among them billionaire David Koch and his wife, Julia, financier and former Goldman Sachs partner Lewis Eisenberg, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and Ogilvy Government Relations Chairman Wayne Berman…

“‘Most long-standing donors are worried about a candidate, or multiple candidates, coming forward who are too extreme,’ said a major Republican donor with long ties to the party. ‘You’ve got a lot of people that don’t want to support the tea party movement.’”

There are really only two kinds of people in this world: The decent and the indecent. You’ll find that to be true in every religion, political party, college campus, economic class or ethnicity.

Conservative Samizdat on October 25, 2010 at 12:16 AM

This is true. With tremendous shades of gray in between the two extremes. Elitism at different levels?

For the time being, we should get off social issues and stick with economic issues. Social issues tend to work themselves out once an economy brings prosperity to the individual.

The greatest challenge, now and after the elections, will be to focus on reversing the spending that both parties have put us on.

Kini on October 25, 2010 at 12:53 AM

Lefties keep mentioning Mitt in the hopes that he will run as they know he couldn’t beat Obama in 2012. The more they mention his name, the more he keeps getting mentioned on conservative sites as well as liberal ones. The casual voter will assume he’s the top candidate. Look how much play he gets here, and flip-flop couldn’t get around McCain in the primaries. He’s a sure bet to lose in 2012. Which is what they want.

It’s the same with thier continued reference to long-standing donors and Republican insiders who decry the tea party as extreme. Who are these people who say these things? Anyone? It isn’t happening, but the more it gets mention in blogs both conservative and liberal, the more it becomes a standard talking point.

It’s typical political manuevering by the left.

The difference between Huck and Palin is that Huck whines about not being invited to the table on the dais with all the other Big Elites, and Sarah thanks God she doesn’t have to sit there and can party on the floor with everyone else.

Sarah Palin didn’t, and she sold nearly 3 million copies of her book. Set a new sales record.

Evidently it’s only politicians that have nothing to say who have to resort to tricks.

gary4205 on October 25, 2010 at 1:08 AM

What!? Not having a close friend who is an evangelical Christian makes you an elitist!?

No, it just makes you unusual on average and a little parochial, because there are so many evangelical christians in America.

While I acknowledge elitism from people who are born in to wealth…I also sense a different kind of elitism in that we’re better than you because we’re not rich ivy league people.

Conservative Samizdat on October 24, 2010 at 10:32 PM

Oh yes. Haven’t you noticed the number of welfare recipients in this country walking around with their noses in the air? Someone should knock them down a peg or two!

Seriously, stop it. There is a definite segment of the GOP that has a set idea of what a good candidate ought to look and sound like, where he should have gone to prep school and college, etc. Those of us who are rebelling against that sort of credentialism are hardly being “reverse-elitists”. An Ivy degree is, in large part, an obstacle to understanding the plight of the common man and should be regarded as such.

alwaysfiredup on October 25, 2010 at 1:08 AM

the problem of course has been the growing break down of law and order. 50 years ago we had an understanding in this country that justice was blind. yes the rich were able to hire better lawyers and such but they had to still follow the same laws as everyone else. something happened in the last decade or so. and that was the belief that certain groups were “above” the law or the law did not pretain to them (illegals). Because of this belief and the failure of the government to enforce the laws equally and blindly we have abuilding class system.

the banks committed outright fraud, perjury and forgary during the housing boom. And still not one CEO is going to court let alone jail. Illegals are flooding the border committing fraud, document forgery, idenity crimes as well as drunk driving, drugs, gang releated crimes and the government does nothing. The only class the law applies too it seems is the middle and poor black classes.

thius attitude as made those of the “elite” look at the law as something of a roadblock to get around not to respect and follow. the SEC, the FDIC, the FBI all have allowed this to go on. Unless the law is made to apply to all classes, all races equally we have a nation divided among itself and it will not stand.

And that is why the elites do not want the TEa party in charge because then they will be made to follow the law, many will go to jail, many will lose their fortunes, and most will lose their power bases.

Ted Kennedy should have been arrested, Kerry should be brought up on tax evasion charges. Mike Castle’s and Reid’s finaices should be investigated and they should show how men living on government salaries for 40 years can become multi-millioniares.

CEO’s that willfully skirt the law should be fired, arrested and jailed. the ability of companies like google to get around tax laws and still conduct business in this country should be stopped. Illegals should be arrested and deported. Welfare cheats should be arrested and jailed, Defense contractors like Haliburton that overcharged the go should be fined, and their CEO should be held responsibile.

It is time for personal responsibility to be the law of the land. We need to do away with volumes of laws and make a small subsection of laws that everyone knows and everyone follows.

there are too many laws and the end result is no one enforces or follows the laws. Anyone that wakes up in the morning has probably committed sometype of law breaking by lunch time.

Mitt delivered Romneycare to Massachusetts.

Obamacare is modeled off of Romneycare, or is at least very similar to it.

Many GOP candidates are running on the promise to try and repeal Obamacare if elected this year.

So, it makes perfect sense that the GOP’s next presidential candidate be the one who provided the model for the health care reform that so many dislike and want to repeal. /s

from free republic:

got the following e-mail from the Tea Party Express and wondered if others had heard of a poll showing Christine this close.

Stunning news to report today, fellow patriots. A brand new poll has Christine O’Donnell surging to within 6% of her Democrat challenger, Chris Coons.

This late-in-the-campaign surge replicates her surge in the polls in the GOP primary, when everyone had written her off and said she could never win.

She proved the so-called “experts” wrong before and she seems poised to do so again!

With just 10 days left until Election Day, we would love nothing more than to defeat Barack Obama’s and Harry Reid’s candidate, Chris Coons, and give the media heartburn by electing Christine O’Donnell to the U.S. Senate.

But now we’ve got to give it everything we’ve got because it seems the national Republican Party has abandoned her and is refusing to put money into her campaign. But we here at the Tea Party Express aren’t abandoning Christine O’Donnell, and we’re committed to helping her win, just as we did in the primary.

I don’t think it has yet. I imagine the email was to ge tinterest up and the pollsters are waiting until monday for maxium coverage of it. The TPE was the only group to get the primary right in their polls for both Miller and COD. All the other pollsters were way off the reservation. I’m not sure this is a TPE poll or one commissioned by them but with Obama going to DE you know something was up….I didn’t buy the “rub thier face in it” defense by the left on that trip. If true this poll would tend to support the view that biden and Obama rushed to DE to try to save coons….

I also heard Palin is planning to campaign in De later this week. possibly next weekend this would also suggest a COD surge is occurring.

American Conservative Union Endorses O’Donnell for her Strong Constitutional Principles
Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate Christine O’Donnell has received the endorsement of the American Conservative Union Political Action Committee (ACUPAC).

“The Senate election in Delaware is a clear cut choice between a big government liberal in Chris Coons and conservative Christine O’Donnell,” ACUPAC Chairman David A. Keene said. “Coons will come to Washington to rubber stamp the quasi-socialist agenda of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi while O’Donnell will stand up for the Constitution, limited government and an electorate that has had enough.

“The election of Christine O’Donnell is a particularly important one for conservatives. Since this is a special election to fill the unexpired term of Joe Biden, O’Donnell will be seated in time to participate in the lame-duck session and stop any more damaging legislation from being passed. I urge conservatives to give their support to Christine O’Donnell.”

The ACU is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization. Founded in 1964, ACU represents the views of Americans who are concerned with economic growth through lower taxes and reduced government spending and the issues of liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values and national security.

“My campaign is honored to receive the endorsement of such a prominent conservative organization,” O’Donnell said. “We will continue to advocate for a limited federal government and a lower tax burden as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. It is a contrast to my opponent, who would further increase taxes and cut essential defense programs that keep America safe.”

Two polls showing the same thing will make people sit up and notice. So far people like allah have been able to ignore the TCJ poll as an outlier. If the TPE gives a poll confirming the results well as they say in sports “its a whole new ballgame”.

Your right I missed that. They may be different polls altogether. Not surprising though given the attention and resources the Democrats are concentrating on a so-called safe seat.

If you find out what the TPE poll is please post it, as I would like nothing better than to see her win, and I think she has a real shot.

sharrukin on October 25, 2010 at 2:27 AM

yeap looks like its a TEA party commissioned poll. COD is now within 6pts/7pts. Do you believe in miracles?

Now if the RINO Castle would endorse her the race would be over and COD would be the new senator from DE. This close her loss can and will be pinned on the RINOs if they continue to act like spoiled children.

“Populist” makes them uneasy? So they are uneasy with the “votes”?

TWO THINGS:

1. POLITICO is LYING AGAIN AGAINST A REPUBLICAN (ROMNEY).

2. BY THIS ARTICLE, POLITICO IS SAYING THAT ROMNEY NOW IS THE CANDIDATE OF THE OLD, GREEDY REPUBLICAN BUNDLERS AND STRATEGIST.

It’s about time for Romney camp to denounce POLITICO’s SHEET.

Conservative Samizdat on October 25, 2010 at 12:16 AM

As I’ve noted above, that was one characteristic of several. I didn’t read it as “you must check off all of the above, or you’re an ELITIST!!!”

But maybe I’m being too reasonable.

Hmm, why aren’t you so exercised about the qualifications before & after the “evangelical” point?

They are unlikely to have spent at least a year with a family income less than twice the poverty line (graduate school doesn’t count) or to have a close friend who is an evangelical Christian. They are unlikely to have even visited a factory floor, let alone worked on one.

Do you seriously think that the author is suggesting that if you’ve checked off the other 5, but always had a good income, you’re “elitist?” Likewise, if you’re from a “salt-of-the-earth” but haven’t personally stepped inside a factory?

Methinks you’re a bit sensitive on the “Evangelical Christian” point.

Just my take, FWIW.

By “Radical” do they mean conservatives like; Barbour, DeMint, Pence, Palin, etc?

The reason Huckabee lost had nothing to do with the school he attended and portraying himself as an outsider does not bring tears to my eyes.

As for Romney – I guess he didn’t learn from the last election that money isn’t everything when it comes to politics – so while he is lining up a few big contributors -the conservatives are lining up votes. What is that saying about doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result?

Done That on October 25, 2010 at 5:35 AM

Huckabee’s remarks don’t seem to me to be merely about resentment. They seem to be rooted in reality.

AnninCA on October 25, 2010 at 6:35 AM

This is just Huckabee trying to latch onto the Tea Party vote. The truth is the GOP is supporting candidates all over the country who do not go to cocktail parties or hang out at country clubs. They are interested in electability. And the GOP did give money to O’Donnell when she won that primary, in spite of erroneous initial claims to the contrary.

To be honest, I think a lot of this stuff about elitism is becoming elitist itself.

Terrye on October 25, 2010 at 6:37 AM

— the ‘cognitive elite’ that Herrnstein and I described — becomes a class unto itself. It is by no means a closed club, as Barack Obama’s example proves.

A lot of the establishment types were very contemptuous toward me and treated me like some backwater,’ Huckabee said.

Oh please! Huckabee’s fantasies of not being accepted because of his credentials are a figment of his imagination. People here at Hot Air have largely rejected him, but it’s not because he didn’t go to Harvard or wasn’t a ‘child of privilege’.

He can’t succeed without playing a class warfare game. He hopes to co-opt Palin by being viewed as the ‘less extreme’ populist, and of course he will play the class envy game with Mitt to the hilt cause poor Huck didn’t even have a spoon as a child. Pathetic…

Buy Danish on October 25, 2010 at 7:23 AM

“Huckabee’s resentments date back to his 2008 presidential bid, which drew dismissal and even paid attacks from a Wall Street-backed GOP establishment that favored Mitt Romney and others and saw Huckabee as suspect on taxes.

I wouldn’t argue with the fact that there is a undesirable elitist “gatekeeper mentality” in the GOP that seeks to keep out the riffraff -such as the “religious right” and those “single-issue “voters. But it might easily be true that “outsiders” are rejected for bona fide reasons. It’s possible for someone of the religious right to also have solid views on the desirability of small goverment, strong defense etc. in addition to family values. Huck is indeed suspect, but don’t blame the gatekeeper elitists -blame Huck.

For the flip side, the elitists in the GOP need to be faulted for their failure to recognize that without religion and strong family values, their private little world would disintegrate quickly for lack of a foundation.

Then again, the purpose of being an elitist is to have lesser creatures around you to do the everyday work while standing in awe of you. And you thought that was just the other party that thought like that.

Don L on October 25, 2010 at 7:24 AM

That’s a rather broad stereotype. And while I don’t think of Mitt as being an elitist (which I define as an attitude of disdain) he certainly can’t be faulted for not having strong religious/family values. Bush is also faulted for being part of the ‘establishment’ yet he too is unassailable on these counts.

An elite that passes only money to the next generation is evanescent (‘Shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations,’ as the adage has it).

Take a look at the Hiltons, and their daughters, Paris and Nicky. There is an example of passing nothing onto your kids but maybe money.

Then take a look at the Trumps children….has anyone noticed that Trumps passing on more than just money to his kids? The Trumps are the old model.

The McCains are split they let their daughter Meghan “Play” in the Media. They have a son who is a Marine. There is a Navy tradition in the McCain family.

Military Service – training and discipline, would skew the above paradigm. An elite that has been created in an artificial bubble. Or as we country bumpkins like to say, they only breath “Rarefied Air” GRIN.

Dr Evil on October 25, 2010 at 8:17 AM

As far as Romney goes, No Thanks. I am an Independent, and it’s Independents who decided elections. Mitt still won’t answer for Romney Care the model for Obama scare.

The Republicans can’t get it – if they can’t overcome the learning curve, a 3rd party will form. It will be called the Constitution Party.

Mitt Romney, wasn’t an attractive a candidate back in 2008 but come 2012, the Republicans think “leftovers” are going to get everyone excited to vote Republican? What is it the hair? Because there are some triflin superficial folks in the establishment portion of the Republican Party.
They think running a “Ken” Doll, is going to get them the Presidency in 2012?

America deserves better, and I am not looking forward to Barack Obama’s 2nd term.

Dr Evil on October 25, 2010 at 8:28 AM

The entire discussion of who is qualified brings out a lot of interesting discussions, but look at Miller in AK. His resume is strong. And he’s still getting the “treatment.”

Anyone high-profile connected with Palin is really having to handle the media. That’s the reality, and the GOP, other than Steel, isn’t helping much.

It’s pretty obvious to me that they’d love that base vote, but they don’t actually agree with their own base.

That will lead to precisely the same problem the Dems have, where the progressives are opposed to centrist Dems.

the problem is that both the GOP elites and the DEm elites are about 180 degree off of what the base in both parties want. The GOP leaders and the Dem leaders ar eprogressive the vast majority of the country is center right. The dem and Gop elites have to lie to get their base to vote for them. then once in office they do the exact oppositie of what they said they were going to do. The reason the elites do not want the Tea party in there because they know “they mean it” instead of lying.

Reagan experienced it. There are many members of the “ruling class” in the Republican party. They really only want to associate with the great unwashed on election day and Huck is a member of the “Country Class”.
