Quotes of the day

posted at 10:36 pm on April 22, 2011 by Allahpundit

“Americans are more pessimistic about the nation’s economic outlook and overall direction than they have been at any time since President Obama’s first two months in office, when the country was still officially ensnared in the Great Recession, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll…

“Disapproval of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy has never been broader — at 57 percent of Americans — a warning sign as he begins to set his sights on re-election in 2012. And a similar percentage disapprove of how Mr. Obama is handling the federal budget deficit, though more disapprove of the way Republicans in Congress are.

“Still, for all the talk from Congressional Republicans and Mr. Obama of cutting the deficit as a way to improve the economy, only 29 percent of respondents said it would create more jobs. Twenty-seven percent said it would have no effect on the employment outlook, and 29 percent said it would cost jobs.”

***
President Obama is not popular. He has not been popular for a very long time. Why should a single speech be expected to move a needle that hasn’t budged in a year?…

“Last week I wrote two columns, the first arguing that Obama is ‘just plain bad at politics,’ and the second asserting that his speech was meant to stabilize his position with the left. The two link up here: the speech might have been a good tactical move in pursuit of holding his Democratic base, but focusing on the base is a terrible strategy, considering his standing with the center of the electorate. Put simply, Obama has a very real problem with independent voters. He has had that problem for a long time – almost 24 months, in fact – and yet he and his team have done very little about it. One would have thought that the nineteen-point margin that independents handed the GOP in the 2010 House election would have alerted the White House to the trouble, as well as the fact that this swing helped give the Republicans the single largest House pickup in generations. But apparently not.

“Three previous presidents were in this kind of polling jam at this point in their administrations: Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. Reagan and Clinton both tracked back to the political center after their midterm drubbings, and Reagan had the benefit of a V-shaped recovery that was just starting at this point in his tenure. Carter, on the other hand, drifted sideways, as did the economy, which fell into recession by 1980. Who does Obama look like right today? I’d say Carter. Economic growth is slowing down, inflation is on the rise, the deficit is out of control, swing voters have gone away, and the guy in the Oval Office doesn’t seem to have the foggiest idea what to do about any of it.”

***
“Campaign insiders admit the glaring irony this time around that Obama, who argued in 2008 that he was seasoned enough to be in Washington, would now have to paint himself as an outsider taking on the system. It could be a tougher sell, considering that being president makes anyone the ultimate insider. But the president’s 43 percent approval rating, which has dropped almost 20 points since he took office, shows the depth of the gap he’ll have to make up. Obama himself has even joked about the lost love. At the Palo Alto headquarters of Facebook on Wednesday, Obama confronted the disillusioned. ‘Your friends come and you say: ‘Oh, Obama’s changed. I used to be so excited; I still have a poster’… I understand how you guys feel. But we knew this wouldn’t be easy. We knew that on a journey like this there were going to be setbacks. There were going to be detours.’

“While Obama delivers the message, back at the campaign headquarters the focus is on precinct maps. Several Democratic strategists say that the challenge is to keep the playing field large with up-in-the-air states staying out of Republican hands for as long as possible. Senior leaders like Mitch Stewart, who is Obama’s battleground states director, are reworking the map, figuring out which states are worthy of the most resources. ‘Last time Virginia and North Carolina turned out to be decisive, but the country’s been through a lot and we’re now trying to redefine the battlefield,’ says the campaign’s O’Malley Dillon. Those strategy sessions resulted in the president’s trip to Los Angeles and the Bay Area this week, both considered perennial ATMs for Democratic nominees.

“Yet the largest strategic consideration is one that will still take months to sort itself out: Who will be Obama’s final opponent?”

The election will turn on Minority turnout. Obama got elected because everyone thought they would get free cars and homes. Obama didnt deliver that.

If the GOP was smart they would run to the left of obama in attack ads in purple states. If democrats dont think he will give them free stuff they wont come out to vote for him.

I still wait to see any signs of intelligence in the GOP. We won in 2010 because we were seen as outsiders to the democratic losers in congress.

We cant win on taht score now. 2012 will be a referendum on Obama. We win if we paint Obama as President “No”

They win if they paint us as the poarty of ‘No”

In the last two years we have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our entire nation’s history.. Over 27 times as fast. Metaphorically speaking, if you are driving in the right lane doing 65 MPH and a car rockets past you in the left lane. 27 times faster, it would be doing 7,555 MPH!

A New Poll Has Some Horrible News For Obama
Apr. 22, 2011, 7:44 AM
**********************

A new poll from NYT/CBS has some horrible news for Obama.
=========================================================

A few nuggets:
————–

Optimism about the state of the economy is at its lowest level in two years.

In one month, the number of folks pessimistic about the economy has jumped 13%!

57% of voters disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy.

Cutting spending is WAY more popular than raising taxes to pay for existing federal programs.

The GOP is more trusted than Obama to handle the deficit (44% to 39%).

35% say Obama isn’t compromising enough with the GOP. Just 20% say that about Republicans.

57% agree that changes to Medicare are necessary.

63% oppose raising the debt limit.

Of the people who oppose raising the debt limit, 51% would still oppose, even if it meant a surge in interest rates.

When a poll conducted by two organizations as dishonest as CBS News and The New York Times gives Obama pause, you know he is in trouble.

This poll (which shows Obama as +2) is the only poll at Real Clear Politics that shows Obama above water. There’s no telling how much they had to oversample Democrats and tweak the results to come up with +2.

An insufferable ass is an insufferable ass, of course, of course
And no one can talk sense to an insufferable ass, of course
And especially, of course, if the insufferable ass is the famous Barack Obama

Go right to the source and ask the insufferable ass
He’ll give you the answer that deceivers will endorse
He’s always on a dissemblers course
Talk to Barack Obama

Barack Obama just yakkity yaks a streak and wastes your time of day
Does any sane person even believe anymore a thing he has to say?

An insufferable ass is an insufferable ass, of course, of course
And this one’ll talk in prevaricating circles til his voice is hoarse
You never heard of a talking insufferable ass?

Well listen to this

Without a clear opponent for 2012 Obama is out campaigning against who… It makes him look like an ass. He is nothing without an enemy and “the rich” and Paul Ryan are lame targets that only work with kids who will vote for him regardless. His poll numbers will drop the more he campaigns without a GOP target because it only highlights that all he cares about is himself and that he is not busy doing the work of the people. Plus the mainstream doesn’t know who to focus on to destroy – Donald is keeping them busy for now… Plenty of time. Keep campaigning to stupid college kids and left wing elites – he looks terrible doing it (oh and bring Oprah with you) middle class Americans paying 5 bucks for gas love seeing you hang with Oprah

Allen West Reiterates Obama ‘Dictator’ Remarks: ‘Low-Level Socialist Agitator’
Posted on April 22, 2011 at 10:00am
***************************************

Recently, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) decried Obama’s “third world dictator-like arrogance.” That raised some eyebrows. So last night, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, who was a little uncomfortable with the remarks, gave West a chance to walk them back.

No way, said West:

I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist, demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America. It is not helpful for this country and it’s not going to move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I’m not going to back away from telling what the truth is.

[...]
There’s a great depth to my conviction, and part of my conviction is telling the truth. I don‘t think it’s very presidential when Barack Hussein Obama refers to my colleague, Paul Ryan, as a simple little accountant, either. So I think that when you look at what a community organizer is turning out to be, it does seem to be like a low-level socialist agitator.

***********************

Conservatives itching for an all-or-nothing showdown with Barack Obama risk playing right into his hands. A crisis is exactly what he wants. To understand this, it is necessary, once again, to understand that most of his playbook comes from radical organizer Saul Alinsky, and that his playbook also assuredly draws on the work of professors he encountered at Columbia University, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.(More…………)

White Girl Suffers Seizure After Being Repeatedly Beaten By Group Of Four Black Girls In Mc Donald’s (As Mc Donalds’ Employees Stand by and Film)
******************************

(Video)*(Warning: Disturbing video with extreme violence.)

—————–

As ‘Gate’ writes over at Norcal Blogs:
—————————————

What I have for you here is an example of a racists black on white crime, that many on the left will never mention when accusing white people in America of being racists. At a McDonald’s a customer or employee is filming two black girls mercilessly beating a white girl until she is laying in a corner convulsing while near death. The manager who is also black makes a weak attempt at stopping the beating, but you can tell he is not interested in stopping it, or he would have had his employees who are also watching help him help the girl. What the manager should have done was get the girls out, lock the doors and await the police and ambulance. It is not until the two black girls try to drag the helpless white outside that someone, and older white woman steps in to help. Mind you, these girls are entering and exiting the fast food restaurant and no one is trying to keep them from doing so. remember, the the black male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack. It is not until the girls is shaking violently with seizures that the black guy recording the while incident warns the girls to leave before the cops arrive. He seemed to be more worried that the girls would get arrested then about the white girls safety.

Perhaps you should quit acting like Al Sharpton and dropping the “racist!” card at any black on white crime… I shall call you Tawanna henceforth..

Bradky on April 23, 2011 at 12:17 AM

The suspects said they beat the white girl over using a bathroom. The white girl is transgender and a gay advocacy group wants the beating investigated as a hate crime. The video is horrific. I can’t imagine anyone witnessing the attack and not doing something to help. It doesn’t say much for mankind.

Bradky: try more than two or three cases. You need not search back more than one week to find three national cases of white people being murdered by black youths. Tell me, when was the last time you heard of white people murdering black people? Maybe 1968?

He seemed to be more worried that the girls would get arrested then about the white girls safety.

You are asserting that it has been at least 43 years since a white person murdered a black person? Stunningly obtuse…
Most crime stats show that the race of the victim and the murderer is usually the same.

Bradky on April 23, 2011 at 12:25 AM

I agree.

However, just brush yourself up on the statistics of black crime in this country. It is not racism, it is realism.

All crime is bad.

Now, get back to the topic, the crime Obama exerts on the land and how it will affect you and your progeny.

In a second term he’d be utterly destructive as he’d have no more reelections to worry about.

slickwillie2001 on April 22, 2011 at 11:32 PM

Well maybe, but this time with the way the Democrats have been suggesting that there isn’t really anything wrong that a healthy tax increase wouldn’t fix, I don’t think that dog will hunt either. It isn’t just Obama that’s the problem BTW, it’s his enablers in the Congress and that includes the Republican enablers.

The man loves to talk. He loves the performance and the attention it brings. But at this point in the Obama presidency, it should be obvious to someone in the West Wing that this is an enterprise of rapidly diminishing returns. What is gained from the expulsion of so much wind from the president’s overtaxed lungs?

How can Obama win the future if he can’t even win independents? Obama’s answer: Give more speeches! The right answer: Park Air Force One, unplug the teleprompter, roll up the sleeves, and govern.

Americans see a nation falling apart around them. Home values continue to drop while inflation, gas prices, government spending, and the national debt are shooting so high, even Charlie Sheen would look at them and say, “Dude, I think you have a problem.”

Yet instead of sitting at his desk and fixing these problems, the president has spent the last two years doing the same thing he spent the previous four years doing: giving speeches. Is it too much to ask that the president stop talking and start working?

I’m watching tonight’s episode of Hannity, Behind the Bias, History of the Liberal Media. Excellent historical reporting.

We are seeing this bias ramping up Obama’s reelection bid by promoting his class warfare campaign. Will this be Obama’s campaign theme?

During all the Rev. Wright scandal, I never heard this mentioned, funny enough, though it’s historically significant.

I never knew Malcolm X said this until I studied how much he and 0bama have in common and ran across the quote.

Before all this is over, Americans may become a lot more familiar with the story of Mr. X, IYKWIMAITYD

Emperor Norton on April 23, 2011 at 1:42 AM

Emperor Norton,

It’s an intriguing thought. They sure as hell look a hell of a lot alike, and have the same ideology. Would also explain the secrecy.

Sometime try googling “obama + malcolm x” and look at the photos.

Truth can be stranger than fiction.

I have to tell you I would lay a $50 bet on it. That’s the relative level of my belief. Not $100, but $50 – yes. I wonder if Vegas has any odds yet who the father is. He certainly looks exactly 0% like Obama, Sr.

PappyD61 on April 22, 2011 at 11:40 PM

That is a good phrase for the GOP nominee to either open or close a speech with, “Is he destroying America on purpose, or is he that incompetent?”
