Quotes of the day

posted at 10:52 pm on June 30, 2011 by Allahpundit

“Already, the Bachmann boomlet has reset the expectations game in Iowa. The odds on Palin’s jumping into the race lengthen once again. With Pawlenty fighting to survive in Iowa, Jon Huntsman has an easier shot at breaking through in New Hampshire. The Huntsman hype machine must switch from selling the idea of his candidacy to reporters to selling the man himself to real voters. Without stronger New Hampshire poll numbers in the fall, the only precinct Huntsman is likely to carry will be the Morning Joe roundtable. The hopeful news for both Pawlenty and Huntsman is that for most primary voters, the campaign has yet to begin…

“For Romney, a two-way contest with Bachmann is a strategic dream come true. (Disclaimer: I worked for Romney in 2002.) It would draw attention and money away from his two real rivals, Huntsman and Pawlenty, and give him a simple race against a candidate who would remove much of the ambivalence many big-league Republicans still harbor about him. Make no mistake: faced with the terrifying prospect of nominating Bachmann and handing the presidency to Obama, the Republican establishment would rally hard and fast behind Romney. And while a unified Republican establishment in full combat mode cannot compete with the Tea Party when it comes to making cardboard Uncle Sam hats, GOP Inc. can easily crush a candidate like Bachmann over the full series of primaries.”

***
“Steinhauser stressed that he, and many activists, believe that Palin did an exceptional job as governor. And yet: ‘If she were still the sitting governor of Alaska, doing these great things, maybe she could kind of point toward that and say, ‘Here’s what’s going on in Alaska. Here’s what we’re doing. Here’s where we are in 2011.’ So the Sarah Palin in 2011 who’s governing Alaska maybe would be a much stronger candidate than the current (Palin), if she runs.’

“Bachmann, activists say, is instead viewed as being in the trenches — fighting for Tea Party causes, even battling her party’s leaders.

“‘The thing about Michele Bachmann that people in the Tea Party movement respect is the fact that she, for the most part, is voting the way they would expect her to vote. She has taken on the Tea Party mantle … and pushed it at a congressional level,’ said Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin.

“Others even likened Bachmann to a sort of political military leader — leading troops into battle.”

“Bachmann’s candidacy is heavily premised on her personal story — she is the only woman (and mother) in the race and mentions the fact that she has raised 5 children and 23 foster children at nearly every campaign stop.

“It’s what makes her stand out in the field. She is running as a sort-of personal populist — someone who not only feels your pain but has lived it

“All of the above is not to suggest that Bachmann’s decision to talk about her miscarriage was in any way a political or strategic gambit.

“But it does highlight what Bachmann brings to the table and how she has already begun to distinguish herself from the rest of the field.”

I’m only pointing out that the Palins connections to the AIP did not end in ’03 as the poster I was repsonding to claimed. It lasted at least until 2008.

-Aslan’s Girl

Aslans Girl on July 1, 2011 at 2:54 AM

Oh no, do you think this is the iceberg that will finally sink Palin and rid her from our lives?

Get that info to the Alaskan GOP so they can file an ethics complaint before the statute of limitations expire.

How dare she serve as a ‘Republican’ when she had obvious ties with the evil Alaskan Independence Party.

Please contact Andrew Halcro with this blockbuster information before it’s too late!

St. Paul was pretty powerful in what he wrote about homosexuals. Moses in Leviticus writes that homosexuality is an “abomination to God”.

Aslans Girl on July 1, 2011 at 3:01 AM

Sorry, another question: Does this comment mean that you think homosexuality is an “abomination to God”?

I am not attacking you.

I am just wondering if this is part of your belief system. I thought we were all sinners, and therefore we are all barbarians just like the gay “sinners.” Just curious. You are allowed to believe what you want.

No, their personal connection ended in 2008. She addressed them as Governor in 2008, not in any membership sense, and only to welcome them to Alaska. Here is the clip.

At the end of the video MadCon posted, it has Palin saying that she’s proud to be at the AIC convention in 2008.

-Aslan’s Girl

Aslans Girl on July 1, 2011 at 2:49 AM

Let’s be clear….it was Governor Palin welcoming people to the AIP convention.

Mr. Bachmann was calling ALL sinners “barbarians”, not just gays.

“Others even likened Bachmann to a sort of political military leader — leading troops into battle.”

Reagan was no neocon/LBJ/Wilsonian/McCainiac/Petraeus COIN’ing Great Islamic Society Nation Building Mad Hatter.

Reagan in his autobiography, “An American Life.”

“Our experience in Lebanon led to the adoption by the administration of a set of principles to guide America in the application of military force abroad, and I would recommend it to future Presidents,” Reagan wrote. “The policy we adopted included these principles:

“1. The United States should not commit its forces to military action overseas unless the cause is vital to our national interest.

“2. If the decision is made to commit our forces to combat abroad, it must be done with the clear intent and support needed to win. It should not be a halfway or tentative commitment, and there must be clearly defined and realistic objectives.

“3. Before we commit our troops to combat, there must be reasonable assurance that the cause we are fighting for and the actions we take will have the support of the American people and Congress.

“4. Even after all these other tests are met, our troops should be committed to combat abroad only as a last resort, when no other choice is available.”

Where stand you Michelle Bachmann? With Ronald Reagan or with the neocon/LBJ/Wilsonian/McCainiac/Petraeus COIN’ing Great Islamic Society Nation Building Mad Hatter nuts?

HalJordan on July 1, 2011 at 3:17 AM

Really? Really? You don’t recognize sarcasm? Particularly with the signifying punctuation?

MadisonConservative on June 30, 2011 at 11:25 PM

My apologies, MadCon. For a second I thought you were serious in backing a three term know-nothing who couldn’t even manange a staff of college interns. The same know-nothing, mind you, whose closeted husband has been making his rounds calling gay people “barbarians”. Phew, I’m glad you’re not just another MSNBC employee blowing kisses Bachmann’s way.

Punchenko on June 30, 2011 at 11:30 PM
Which reminds me – has anyone noticed Bauchmann’s husband
on any of the videos showing her gladhanding potential voters? It is sort of creepy. Contrast that with Todd
Palin campaigning with Sarah Palin. MB’s husband’s
personna does not hold up to title of “First Dude”!

Amjean on July 1, 2011 at 3:23 AM

I thought that is what you meant.

Many have been “accidentally” repeating this bit of misinformation again. Looks like we will have to debunk it one more time. It went nowhere just like Sir Hawgs said.

And yet somehow this visited “scandal” is supposed to have the same amount of toxicity as the un-visited troubling concerns surrounding Mr. Bachmann’s attitude towards gays and MBs own statements leaning somewhat toward that same attitude in several public statements.

The former has been shown to be innocuous, the later is potentially explosive; a ticking time-bomb. The media can pull the pin on this one when the moment is right.

Geochelone on July 1, 2011 at 3:25 AM

Punchenko on July 1, 2011 at 3:17 AM

Ah. So God, Moses, and St. Paul were “throwing stones at gays”. Thanks. I guess they’re all gay, too, based on your logic that anyone who would counsel someone who was seeking counselling must be what that person is.

Yes, we’re all sinners, but once we are covered in the blood of Christ, through belief in Him, God no longer sees our sins. But to have been clearer, I should have written “those who are uncivilized spiritually by not believing in Christ”.

I believe what the Bible teaches. Homosexuality is the only sin that God says is an “abomination”.

If gays believe in Him, then He does not see their sin, according to your beliefs. You said that right?

Then are gays still spiritual barbarians or is that erased since they believe in Him?

Something doesn’t add up.

I miss my boring staid mainline protestant christianity. We had none of this “covering in blood” business. You went to church and went home and went about your business.

alwaysfiredup on July 1, 2011 at 3:36 AM

You’ve never heard that? It’s as old as Judaism when the lintle was covered in the lamb’s blood so the Spirit of the Lord would “Passover” the house. It’s the same as when the High Priest would cover the Mercy Seat in the Temple with the lamb’s blood every year so that when God looked down from Heaven, he saw the lamb’s blood instead of the sins of the people. Being “covered by the blood of Jesus” is mentioned numerous times thoughout the New Testamant. Jesus’ blood makes us “whiter than snow”, and is a famous hymn, “Washed in the Blood”.

Ok. That begs the question, just what does the Bible teach because there are some notorious disarrangement as to the interpretation.

I am not bashing your religious views. Just wondering because I have never really been particularly exposed to people who are more literalist in their interpretation. That’s all. No problem.

Geochelone on July 1, 2011 at 3:40 AM

Punchenko on July 1, 2011 at 3:36 AM

The Bible teaches that we are not “all God’s children’ that’s a modernism akin to “cleanliness is next to Godliness”, it’s not in the Bible. God’s children are only those who believe in Christ. We are all, though, God’s creatures and He loves us all, but we’re not all going to Heaven, only those who believe in Christ.

That’s what I like about the Palins. They are people of faith but you will not catch them a la Mr. Bachmann on some radio show talking endlessly about gay people. I wonder how Tammy Bruce feels about all of this?

Punchenko on July 1, 2011 at 3:42 AM

See the Palin movie. Tammy tells you what she thinks. But I really am not concerned about Bachmann anymore. Palin’s got that one hands down. Can she beat Romney? I hope so.

You are entitled to throw your stones at gays. I will not, however.

Punchenko on July 1, 2011 at 3:17 AM

Apparently you don’t recognize the great difference between throwing stones at “sinners”(previous language) and letting “sinners”(previous language)redefine society favoring sin.

It is not about condemning sin as much as it is about the approval and normalization of sin corrupting the rest of society -as has abortion, hmmm?

Don L on July 1, 2011 at 3:49 AM

Did anyone else see that police officer at that Bachmann rally? He was standing behind her with other supporters, yet it looked as if he was on duty and told to stand there to fill in the crowd.

Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against the faithful now go against the Mohammedans and end with total victory this war which should have been begun long ago.

I believe that all Christians, be they gay or straight, are no longer seen as “sinners” to God’s eye. Once we believe in Christ and He covers us in His blood, God looks at us and sees us as perfect as His Son is. But, Christians who engage in sin, especially habitual sin where it becomes a lifestyle — whether that be alcoholism, porn addiction, fornication, adultery, homosexuality, occultism, etc. — are not leading the “full life in Christ” that Christ wants to provide for us here. All Christians will receive eternal life in Heaven, but Christ wants us to have a full life while we’re here on earth. Sin like that prevents full fellowship with Christ, it is a roadblock to His working fully in our life.

All Mr. Bachmann is doing is providing counselling to those who wish to get out of a lifestyle that is preventing full fellowship with Christ. There are Christian counselling centers for other sexual sins and for alcoholism as well.

In born-again circles this is run-of-the-mill.

And the “company” of Heaven include Christ, my Glorious Redeemer, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, David, Daniel, Noah, Adam & Eve, might Christians of the past such as Tyndale, Wesley, most of the Founding Fathers, C.S.Lewis, Tolkien, my loved ones, and on and on and on.

I’m not interested in getting into a debate on religion (they rarely change anyone’s mind and they can get too heated for my taste, especially this early in the a.m.), but I wanted to say that holding one religious belief almost invariably means you find others invalid. In other words, doctrinally speaking, it can’t be both A and Not-A, so if you believe A, you are going to find Not-A invalid.

Morning Joe Update:

Mika and Joe promise not to be so biased in the future.
Yes, their panel HAS recently seemed to lean one way and only one way.
It really doesn’t lead to serious political talk with only one side represented:

They WILL, from now, on be more pro-Obama.

(Boy, they must have taken a hit yesterday from the moon-bat websites yesterday over “he’s a d!ck”.

And I would guess Obama threatened to cancel his “promised appearance” on their show.

“Bachmann, activists say, is instead viewed as being in the trenches — fighting for Tea Party causes, even battling her party’s leaders.

Excuse me, Bachmann needs to doing the job she was elected to do – now… or she should resign to run for office.

Something about MB just seems a little……politiciany!

Wait until the Left starts with the edited/ taped interviews.

PappyD61 on July 1, 2011 at 7:01 AM

I think that when she first came on the scene a lot of people saw Bachmann as another Palin, but she has turned out to be her own person. And that surprised people. I also think she benefited from Huckabee’s departure from the race. She got a lot of his supporters.

But remember Trump, he had support too and then it just went away. Only time will tell if Bachmann can stay up there as the weeks and months of campaigning go by.

Yeah, but when does that ever happen? What Governor or Senator ever resigned from office just to run? Some people waited until their terms were up to give it a shot, but very few actually resign.

There’s a lesson that you don’t seem to grasp or have been taught. In a pluralistic society, it is rude to publicly pronounce judgments on others based on one’s religion. Obviously those who conduct themselves in ways that you imagine will send them to your hell or make them abominations do not share those religious beliefs. You wouldn’t like it if others frequently and needlesly harped on the faults they find your religion at the drop of a hat. So why must you provoke and insult others with your religious judgments?

PappyD61 on July 1, 2011 at 7:30 AM

Was “unseen” killed by a large groundhog?

Why the absence from an almost Palin thread?

rickyricardo on July 1, 2011 at 7:33 AM

‘If she were still the sitting governor of Alaska, doing these great things, maybe she could kind of point toward that and say, ‘Here’s what’s going on in Alaska. Here’s what we’re doing. Here’s where we are in 2011.’ So the Sarah Palin in 2011 who’s governing Alaska maybe would be a much stronger candidate than the current (Palin), if she runs.’

This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard yet.

If you recall, when SP was governor and had not as yet been raped and filthied by the media, she was running for VP, not President. And you saw what happened.

Of course, the McCain campaign did hold her arms back while the media savaged her. That won’t happen this time.

Many Christians believe that Christ “civilizes” man. Therefore those who are not Christian are not “civilized” in the spiritual sense, i.e. “barbarians” in the spiritual sense. Not just one kind of sin.

I love ya, but this is the sort of stuff that caused me to leave protestantism for the Church.
As a Catholic I am spiritually civilized…as is my Jewish mother.

annoyinglittletwerp on July 1, 2011 at 7:58 AM

Yay! Liberals telling us conservatives how our primary race is going!

What could be better ?

deadrody on July 1, 2011 at 7:58 AM

I think I’m going to take the plunge at least once to support his effort.

rickyricardo on July 1, 2011 at 7:30 AM

I’m getting it. The information alone is worth the price. The entertainment is an extra.

Thank you.

kingsjester on July 1, 2011 at 8:06 AM

? watching Morning Joe now:

Their 7 am dialog is virtually a repeat word for word from the 6 am dialog:

Joe eating.
Mika: “Hows that morning bun, Joe?”
….
Mika: “That’s not fair. He’s the President, Joe.”

It’s a SCRIPT.

are you kidding me, every lib they bring on uses the WH talking points…

cmsinaz on July 1, 2011 at 8:09 AM

I will repeat my prior assertion that “-Aslan’s Girl” is a horrible evangelist. Horrible.

steebo77 on July 1, 2011 at 8:11 AM

Excuse me, Bachmann needs to doing the job she was elected to do – now… or she should resign to run for office.

stenwin77 on July 1, 2011 at 7:00 AM

Yeesh! Strawman much.

What’s happening? Their 7 am show IS a repeat of their 6 am show.
Their control room who couldn’t bleep the “d!ck” is totally incompetent.

If Palin runs, makes it through the primaries, we’ll support her.

If she doesn’t run, what will the P-gaggle do? I think you will have to seek treatment.

Schadenfreude on July 1, 2011 at 2:02 AM

I think we’d probably cope better than the Palin-deranged Bachmanniacs would if Palin gets in and Bachmann starts to fade. They’d absolutely choke in rage.

pseudoforce on July 1, 2011 at 8:39 AM

I think Palin detractors will have the worst time. No place to vent.

I like Bachmann and some other candidates, I just think Palin is a better choice.

Palin has the stones to look the entire Congess in the eye and tell them we’re not doing it your way any longer. I don’t think anyone else out there can do that.

Plus she’s the only one out there who owes no one. Not the GOP, not special interests, not the media. That frees her up to do what needs to be done.

Bottom line … Palin is my choice but Bachmann or anyone else for that matter is infinitely better than what we have now.

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 8:48 AM

Bachmann isn’t a quitter.

csdeven on July 1, 2011 at 8:45 AM

And we’re off! csdeven throws out the first cast hoping to be able to respond with “obsessive” and “abdicate”.

Curious onlookers wait with bated breath to see who will hit first.

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 8:51 AM

Yep. Gross.

alwaysfiredup on July 1, 2011 at 3:36 AM

I think there was probably a better way to phrase that. Still…Christ’s atonement, a veritable blood offering was necessary to fulfill the law and prophesies and satisfy God’s wrath against sin. Before, there were animal sacrifices…but Christ ended that on the Cross (hence why we say “His finished work.” There is nothing more we need nor could do to merit or pay for this gracious gift.)
Further, crucifixion, particularly what Jesus endured, was a bloody ordeal. The lovely cross necklaces we wear don’t *quite* capture the horror of that brand of execution. Nor does it adequately express the necessary fulfillment of law, ultimate propitiation, immutable atonement/forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation to God all because of that singular “gross” blood offering. That’s just Christianity 101.

Bee on July 1, 2011 at 8:55 AM

By the way, where was she right after Tucson? I don’t remember.

pseudoforce on June 30, 2011 at 11:16 PM

Why don’t you use that line one more time.

Did anyone watch Jon Stewart…
idesign on June 30, 2011 at 11:13 PM

Well that tells us a lot about you.

You mean like comparing herself to mass murderers?
promachus on June 30, 2011 at 11:16 PM

Sure. That is what she did. You’re as bad as any liberal.

Even Bristol commented on how Bachmann is dressing like her mom. B
KickandSwimMom on July 1, 2011 at 12:19 AM

Really? A daughter essentially attacking a political opponent really. Wow.

Oh how charming. I guess Palin invented campaign buses or something like that?

This lunacy astounds me.

Knucklehead on July 1, 2011 at 12:53 AM

Agreed. Imagine that MB trying to get her name out there. She is such a bit*h.

Bachmann is a media creation like Obama and he sole purpose is to get Mitt the nomination.

unseen on July 1, 2011 at 1:05 AM

Seeing black helicopters too?

promachus on July 1, 2011 at 1:02 AM

Quite a few of us are Palin supporters who think you are “icky”.

katy the mean old lady on July 1, 2011 at 1:07 AM

They sure are not doing SP any favors. Until just recently I bit my tongue a lot with these icky types. I have and will continue to bash the anti Palins but these overboard SP supporters will get their full too.

And if people really want to go after Bachmann’s husband for his remarks about homosexuals, they’ll have to deal with the same scrutiny over Todd’s ties to the Alaskan Independence Party.

MadisonConservative on July 1, 2011 at 1:34 AM

This. Ouch. That hurt.

How can she have a campaign bus when she isn’t running for president?
MadisonConservative on July 1, 2011 at 1:45 AM

Ouch again.

more smear and slander I see coming from the antipalin wing of the gop.

unseen on July 1, 2011 at 1:56 AM

Wanna cracker Polly?

I support Palin, you f**king nitwit. Goddamn, from getting your hackles up over blasphemy, to now outright lying about my position on Palin? Sad.

MadisonConservative on July 1, 2011 at 1:59 AM

These fools don’t get it do they?

find a video when todd Palin said anything like that. Otherwise you have nothing. They got mr. Bachmann on tape.

unseen on July 1, 2011 at 2:06 AM

Wow. Really? You really are a lapdog.

ANother fun filled thread in which the small but ravenous group of Pro Palin nutters attacks and smears anyone who dares challenge her or them. They even attack other Pro Palin posters. They do all this while rarely saying anything positive about Palin. Hmmm.

Who is whining? I am pointing out what should be the obvious.

I did not think you were a nutter. Are you?

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 9:01 AM

Sorry but that is hilarious especially after you posted about one tenth of my post.

CW on July 1, 2011 at 9:16 AM

The Bible teaches that we are not “all God’s children’ that’s a modernism akin to “cleanliness is next to Godliness”, it’s not in the Bible. God’s children are only those who believe in Christ. We are all, though, God’s creatures and He loves us all, but we’re not all going to Heaven, only those who believe in Christ.

-Aslan’s Girl

Aslans Girl on July 1, 2011 at 3:42 AM

The Jews are God’s chosen people (that is in the Bible) They are still waiting for their Messiah. I think they would still be considered “God’s children”.

IowaWoman on July 1, 2011 at 9:17 AM

Did I not just do that?

CW on July 1, 2011 at 9:14 AM

Yeah, you did. I guess my comment wasn’t really clear. I get tired of people pointing out Palin supporters only and never pointing anyone else out.

People hammering on Bachmann is just a mirror image of people hammering on Palin … yet those who go after Bachmann are now “bad” whereas people who attack Palin are ok and just voicing their opinion.

All I can say is Bachmann supporters: Welcome to the world of the Palin supporter.

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 9:22 AM

CW on July 1, 2011 at 8:56 AM

I’m only glad that their numbers honestly seem smaller than they were a couple years ago. Hell, when Ed declared Palin’s national political career in office over…good grief. You’d think he just tore a baby in half and ate it on his radio show.

MadisonConservative on July 1, 2011 at 9:26 AM

darwin on July 1, 2011 at 9:22 AM

Of course no one on this thread hammers Bachmann supporters./sarc

Oh and it seems you have not noticed my complete history. I am normally on here bashing the likes of MJBrutus. Also, I do think there is a major point to be noted. The likes of unseen , idesign , and some others are way over the top. I have hit my limit with their rants. They may turn off people who like me who support SP, MB, and others in the GOP field. They have gone nutter…..that is a fact.
