Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on May 31, 2011 by Allahpundit

“In a Republican presidential field where no top-tier candidate offers a flawless resume, the question facing GOP primary voters is whether they can find a diamond in the rough — a standard-bearer who embodies the party’s conservative backbone and can give President Obama a run for his money.

“With former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the nominal front-runner in a wide-open field, set to formally enter the race Thursday, all of the top candidates have significant deviations from Republican orthodoxy on their records, while the second-tier hopefuls have yet to prove they can raise funds and energize base voters enough to threaten Mr. Obama’s re-election hopes…

“‘There is a reason why Republicans are so desperate to find another candidate and begging candidates to get into the race, because the current crop just isn’t cutting it,’ said Mo Elliethee, a Democratic strategist.”

***
“Asked on her way into the restaurant about Trump’s past political donations, Palin responded, ‘I think I’ll go change his mind and make sure he’s contributing to constitutional conservatives.’

“‘She didn’t ask me [to run with her] but I’ll tell you, she’s a terrific woman,’ Trump said as they walked in. Trump’s special counsel, Michael Cohen, told reporters that the pair had talked in the past about meeting up whenever Palin found herself in New York…

“The first person who approached Palin outside the restaurant was Diane Barone, a union activist from Youngstown, Ohio in town for IUE-CWA contract negotiations. She shook Palin’s hand and would not let go, telling the former governor she disagreed with her positions on unions. Palin responded calmly that her father had been a union member and that making things better for working people ‘is something on which we can agree.’ She said afterwards that she doubted she could change Palin’s mind, but you never know: ‘I thought she would ignore me and she did not, she shook my hand.’”

***
“‘This family has been tested,’ Palin said. ‘When people talk about how she was just plucked up out of Wasilla, you have to look at her career. Every step in her career is another step for the family, and we were prepared.

“‘These kids grew up around the mayor of a small town,’ he added. ‘Local politics is in your face every day. It’s not like you get on a plane and fly to D.C. or Juneau.’…

“Palin said there is a list of ‘pros and cons’ that the family is weighing. ‘But this country, we have to get back on the right track,’ he said.”

***
“The conventional wisdom is that the Republican establishment will rally around whoever it needs to defeat Palin. But that might not be so easy. With Mike Huckabee, John Thune and Haley Barbour all skipping the race, Palin could claim much of the social-conservative vote. Yes, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann play in that space, but they’re chihuahuas. Palin is the big dog. Her support among Christian evangelicals would prove particularly valuable in Iowa, whose low-turnout caucuses reward intensity of support, not breadth. In Iowa, passion can beat organization: In 2008, Huckabee beat Mitt Romney there by nine points. And in Iowa, extremism is no vice: Pat Robertson beat George H.W. Bush there in 1988. It’s the perfect state for her.

“Palin would likely fare more poorly in New Hampshire, which leans towards economic conservatives, and where Independents and Democrats can vote in the GOP primary. And the Republican establishment would rally around the New Hampshire winner. But voters might not oblige. Romney, the early favorite both in New Hampshire and among GOP moneybags, has Hillary Clinton’s problem. In 2008, the thing grassroots Democrats most wanted from their presidential nominee was a thundering denunciation of the Iraq War. Hillary, because she voted to authorize force, couldn’t offer one…

“Goldwater and McGovern were far more substantive than Palin, to be sure. But they won because they inspired passion, because their opponents were weak, and because their party wasn’t in a tactical mood. Could that happen again in 2012? If I were Sarah Palin, I’d want to find out.”

Palin’s been answering substantive questions on her bus tour. It’s a shame O’Reilly and Krauthammer weren’t aware of that and what she’s had to say on issues both foreign and domestic. She sounds very sound, indeed. And sane. Neither of which we can say about Obama.

“Cham101 at 6:52 PM May 31, 2011
I don’t know what our “foundation” has to do with Ft. McHenry. The British navy came to have a pissing match with Baltimore City because the professional and state-sanctioned pirates that resided in Fells Point were raiding British trade ships to the point where it had gotten quite menacing. I’m not sure that added anything to our national “foundation” but it did set the tenor for the general character of our fair city..

Guess that whole “o,say can you see” thingy didn’t register.

As I said in the headlines thread, I’ve had about enough of this “Palin needs to school herself” bullshyte. For all we know, Romney and Pawlenty know jack all about history and government too; I know I have no clue how knowledgable they are on these subjects. Krauthammer takes it on faith, tho, that they are sufficiently up to speed. Palin, OTOH, is expected to ace a pop quiz which seemingly never ends. And then the ABPs here want to gripe about how “cultish” we are when we question why the standards are so vastly different for Palin than they are for virtually any other candidate. Amazing.

Forget charisma.

1. Fall of 1964 unemployment rate 5.2%. GDP Growth rate 6.1%.
2. Fall of 1972 unemployment rate 5.6%. GDP Growth rate 5.4%.
3. Fall of 2012 unemployment rate 8.5%? GDP Growth rate 2.5%?

One of these years is not like the others,
One of these years is not the same…

Charles Krauthammer’s positions are not “logical”, they’re a freeze frame of two years ago, and he even says in the same statement that things can change.

Well, they’re changing now. Deal with it doctor.
All his “schooling” nonsense is just that – he wants a walking text book, not a leader. They aren’t the same thing.

Oh an Bill I is an idiot. Talk about fools. Really does any of that stuff matter to setting out a vision for a nation?

When the last line of the national anthem is “PLAY BALL”, it tends to confuse the Oriole’s fans.

That’s a freeze frame of a media creation and not a reality by the way.

I think Dr. K forgot how to research.

Copy and paste commentary.

see lots of name-calling & hostility in this thread, but no one has refuted Charles K’s logical positions.

He’s a shrink who is psychanalyzing her without ever speaking to her. That means that everything he has to offer concerning her are opinions without research. He’s a hack with a diploma and history of being a supporter of the enemy. Yes Democrats are the enemy.
