Quotes of the day

posted at 9:45 pm on October 30, 2011 by Allahpundit

“Herman Cain and Mitt Romney top The Des Moines Register’s new Iowa Poll, with the retired pizza executive edging the former Massachusetts governor 23 percent to 22 percent in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Cain has surged 13 percentage points since the first Iowa Poll of the caucus cycle, conducted in late June. His rise has come despite spending little time in Iowa recently, campaigning here just once since the Aug. 13 Iowa straw poll, where he placed fifth…

“Texas Gov. Rick Perry was not yet a candidate when the June poll was conducted. But he soared to the top of national polls when he entered the race in August. However, after a string of much-criticized debate performances, his star dimmed nationally. He’s at 7 percent in the new Iowa Poll, tied with former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich for fifth place.”

***

“Cain, however, said he plans to ‘dial back’ his campaign and media appearances in order to avoid missteps. Since climbing in the polls, he has had a series of fumbles, forcing him to clarify comments on abortion, immigration and terrorism suspects.

“Cain has chalked up the mistakes to a grueling campaign schedule jammed with media interviews. Such itineraries are standard fare on the presidential campaign trail and it is unclear how aggressively he will restrict his schedule…

“‘When you’re too tired you’re not on your ‘A game,” the 65-year-old Georgia businessman told a throng of reporters who greeted the arrival of his bus on the Samford campus.

“He said it was a mistake to schedule interviews immediately following debates. Cain maintained he did not flip-flop on issues, but simply did not hear questions properly.”

***

“Rick Perry excels at retail politics and in one-on-ones with local and national media. His past campaigns have also excelled at social media. They have also excelled at attacking past opponents very effectively, but the current opponents, Mitt Romney and Herman Cain, aren’t likely to succumb to normal political opposition attacks. Romney’s known knowns are baked in. Everyone knows he’s a flip-flopper, but most Republicans are willing to vote for him against Obama if they have to. Herman Cain is too likeable and he’s made of Teflon right now. Nothing is sticking to him. Attacks on Cain will blow back on whoever launches them.

“So I don’t think Perry can effectively attack either one without damaging himself

“The solution? Perry needs to go retail and talk radio/online media in a big way. Perry should forget the attacks on Romney, just deliver his message and explain his record in a disciplined and relentless way. Do multiple daily appearances in Iowa explaining his plans and message to everyday voters, get those appearances captured and posted on YouTube and moved on blogs and social media. Get them in the local newscasts. Run positive issue ads in Iowa and South Carolina. Attack Obama often, get under his skin and make him respond directly to you.”

***

“Which brings us to the second problem: Perry. Although the Texas governor has seen his poll numbers plummet in Iowa—from a high of 29 percent in early September to a low of 6 percent in October—as he has elsewhere, Perry’s heartfelt and hard-core Evangelical convictions and his tea-party bona fides, combined with his campaign’s capacity to mount a full-bore organizing blitz on the ground and drop a metric ton of negative TV ads from the air, make him a significant threat to rebound in the state. And indeed, at the Faith & Freedom dinner, Perry clearly signaled his intent to play hard for the affections of the religious right…

“Then there is the third problem, which revolves around the metanarrative of the campaign. If Romney decides to go all-in in Iowa, the national story line will shift in a direction that the candidate and his team have successfully kept it from doing all year—making the caucuses, instead of New Hampshire, the first test of his strength, and making central the question of whether Romney can slay the demons of 2008. ‘Iowa will become all about Mitt the minute he gets in it,’ says a Republican operative unaligned with any campaign. ‘This will tell us whether Mitt Romney has really matured. If he’s grown up into a guy who could be president, he won’t do it. I think Iowa is Lucy and the football for him.’

“A number of Romney’s senior advisers are broadly sympathetic to this view. But others are increasingly tempted to take the plunge. Below the radar, Romney’s people in Iowa have labored long and mightily to maintain the network of activists and volunteers who were behind the governor in the last go-round. And with each passing day that the field remains fragmented and Perry remains unable to revivify himself, the lure of Iowa only grows for those in Romney’s Boston brain trust.”

***

“I find myself siding with the conventional wisdom. Unelected Businessguy With a Plan generally ends up imploding from lack of experience campaigning and failing to recognize that the Plan will invariably attract many critics. Moreover, the presidency is not a Senate seat; voters — including GOP primary voters — set the bar higher. For all the criticism leveled at people in early caucus and primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire, their arrogance signals they take the process seriously. When push comes to shove, most do not see the presidency as an entry-level position. This is why it’s not surprising that Romney is currently tied-to-leading Cain even in more conservative arenas like Iowa and South Carolina, and is well ahead in more moderate venues like New Hampshire and Florida. It’s also why a focus group in Ohio (admittedly unscientific) likes Cain but cannot see him as president (Romney supporters note: Perry not well-liked by the group). It is one thing to tell a pollster your preference months away from an actual vote; it’s another when casting a vote you might think matters.”

Of course we would vote for him if he was nominated. Fer crissakes, nobody is going to vote for Obama.
The thing is that we don’t want to have to vote for Romney.

So Cain meekly takes his preachy browbeating by some old-maidish MSM hack. Big mistake, Herman. You had a golden opportunity and blew it. You could have told the scolding nanny-stater to pound sand, that every American is a sovereign individual with the right to smoke or not smoke and its no business of the government or its handmaiden media to lecture us one way or another. You could have roused the grassroots like nobody’s business. We’ve all been waiting for these pious busybodies who hate our guts to get their rhetorical teeth bashed in, and you caved.

You blew it with me, man. I’d been hoping you were different. But you tucked your tail between your legs like all the rest of them and took your beating and made your politically-correct peace offering.

You need a better and more inspiring argument. This one is simply too attenuated.

The Flatlanders – Have you ever seen Dallas from a DC-10 at Night?

True Story: I worked with Jimmie Dale Gilmore’s daughter at a BBQ joint in the late eighties. I was talking with her once and told her that I loved playing guitar and writing songs. She told me of her father and mentioned that he was polishing up an album and that she would bring a tape for me to borrow, as long as I kept it secret. So, for an entire month, I had Jimmie Dale Gilmore’s unpublished and unpolished album. I was 22 and had no idea who Jimmie Dale Gilmore was.

Buried in the article is a description of one of FDR’s schemes to tax corporations’ uninvested profits. Will this be ObaMao’s next trick to get businesses to release their unspent earnings? We know why they are reluctant to do so, given the uncertainty of O’s policies and his damage to promoting growth.

FDR’s increasing taxation on the “rich” with what he called the Wealth Tax during this period did not generate the revenue he thought would occur. In fact, he prolonged the Depression.

Schieffer…I’m disgusted by his dishonorable treatment of Herman Cain. I’ve never seen such a condescending tone.
I felt bad for Herman when I watched it…
Will someone seriously call Schieffer on it?

balkanmom on October 30, 2011 at 10:05 PM


he’s a runaway slave from the Democrat plantation. He’s gotta be made an example for others.

2011, new master (Uncle Sam) same slave mentality.

Sad loss for America.

Buddy Holly – Peggy Sue

Swan song, tonight’s theme was Lubbock, Texas music. Goodnight all.

carbon_footprint on October 30, 2011 at 11:44 PM

You are just being far too kind. That song sucked! Big time loser early eighties MTV crap. :)

carbon_footprint on October 30, 2011 at 11:40 PM

Yes you caught me..
Back in the mid eighties..at my new college dorm…MTV was fairly new.
The In thing was to watch MTV in a smoke infested room with the after taste of chew.
That song I don’t remember seeing. But then I could hardly see the TV.

Electrongod on October 30, 2011 at 11:45 PM

Electrongod: Never watched MTV in a smoke filled room in college, but I was a nerd, when being a nerd wasn’t cool.

Goodnight my friend.

Electrongod on October 30, 2011 at 11:49 PM

I watched the Schieffer clip

…what a disgusting piece of condescending filth Bob Scheiffer is.

…and Cain didn’t have much choice because Schieffer was going to let him have it no matter what. If Cain had gotten all uppity then Scheiffer would have played the Cancer victim card even louder. Hey Herman DON’T GO ON THAT SHOW WITH THAT LOSER.

Why are these Republicans so freaking stupid to go on these network shows.

ugggggghhhh.

PappyD61 on October 30, 2011 at 11:51 PM

Goodnight my friend.

carbon_footprint on October 30, 2011 at 11:49 PM

Memories.
I was a nerd in high school.
I then went to a nerd college…electronics courses. I instantly was cool.
LOL.

HOLY SMOKES! In the Washington Post?!

The Washington Post
Obama: The Affirmative Action President by Matt Patterson (columnist – Washington Post, New York Post, San Francisco Examiner)

August 18, 2011

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”) ; and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left n o academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator.

And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

…and Cain didn’t have much choice
PappyD61 on October 30, 2011 at 11:51 PM

Enjoy your stuff but completely disagree. Cain had a choice. They all have a choice. You just need the nerve to cross the dimension no one will cross. These people are paper tigers. I saw a number of ways Cain could have flipped this back on Scieffer and pivoted into a discussion of idnividuality and the conservative ethos.

About as clear and eloquent as it gets. : )

Worth noting, he did catch some public criticism for that act from some well-meaning conservatives, one of whom was Glenn Beck.

this photo deserves to go everywhere. the leftist/lazy/bums that populate our media don’t deserve the time of day compared to the people that do the work.

http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/archives/018232.html#comments

the comments are good. somewhere those of us who have worked and paid the price need to counter the bums on ows/media

Rs need to grow a spine and speak up against the way the media is in bed with every half-wit leftist.

i went over to the ows website (i haven’t done that in several weeks)…their site certainly has a focus now

the only solution is WorldRevolution

Ted Nugent is a bully and like most such also a coward and becoming quite mentally ill. He is to Audie Murphy as Barack Obama is to Thomas Jefferson.

InkyBinkyBarleyBoo on October 31, 2011 at 12:23 AM

I don’t really like any of the GOP candidates much better than the others. But whoever is the worst of them is still better than Obama.

muckdog on October 31, 2011 at 12:26 AM

Ted Nugent: “Nugent dodged the draft during the Vietnam War. In an interview for the Detroit Free Press (July 15, 1990), Nugent described how he avoided the draft: He claims that 30 days before his Draft Board Physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last ten days he ingested nothing but junk food and Pepsi, and a week before his physical he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside pants caked with excrement and stained by his urine.”

It takes an even more ignorant or disturbed mind to admire Ted Nugent than it does to admire Barack Obama and the level of ignorance or disturbance needed to admire Barack Obama is one Hell of a benchmark.

InkyBinkyBarleyBoo on October 31, 2011 at 12:31 AM

Patton would have slapped the shit out of Ted Nugent and then had him shot.

It’s well known what his position was during the draft.
