Quotes of the day

posted at 10:40 pm on January 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

“‘I don’t want America to be a nation that’s primarily known for financial speculation,’ the president said during the event in the East Room. ‘I want us to be known for making and selling products all over the world stamped with three proud words: ‘Made in America.’

“To be sure, the president made no mention of Romney directly, but he has been critical of Wall Street before and the tenor of his remarks neatly complimented Vice President Biden’s assail on the former Massachusetts governor Tuesday, when he told New Hampshire Democrats via teleconference that Romney cares more about stockholders than employees.”

***

“Rick Santorum took a nameless swipe at Republicans who have been criticizing Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital.

“‘It’s this hostile rhetoric, which unfortunately – I don’t want to stand here and be a defender of Mitt Romney,’ Santorum said to a friendly crowd here tonight, ‘but unfortunately some in our party now, even some running for president will engage in with respect to capitalism. It is bad enough for Barack Obama to blame folks in business for causing problems in this country. Its one other thing for Republicans to join him.’”

***

“Jon Huntsman on Wednesday joined the chorus of Republicans urging Mitt Romney’s opponents to tone down their attacks on the former Massachusetts governor over his time at the investment firm Bain Capital.

“‘If you have creative destruction in capitalism, which has always been a part of capitalism, it becomes a little disingenuous to take on Bain Capital,’ Huntsman told reporters Wednesday after a campaign appearance at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. ‘I think it’s more instructive to look at governor Romney’s record as governor.’”

***

“We have heard a lot over the last couple months about the anti-Romney sentiment in the Republican party. However, this statistic suggests that, in New Hampshire at any rate, Romney is the only candidate with whom a majority of the party is satisfied. The rest of the candidates seem to have alienated more than half of the GOP.

“That is Romney’s biggest advantage, far and away.”

***

“‘He’s going to have to defend this,’ Perry said in an interview on ‘Fox and Friends’ on Wednesday morning. ‘And better in January than September if he’s going to be our nominee and have to explain.’”

Via Breitbart TV.

***

“‘I think their argument fell flat here in New Hampshire. They tried it very hard, ran ads here, were up and down the state campaigning, and people in the state here said, ‘look, we want a guy who spent some time in the private sector, not someone who spent their entire life in Washington.’ So I think it’s working for my benefit,’ the former Massachusetts governor said.”

***

“Perry began the segment attacking President Obama, but Hannity quickly shifted gears to the ‘very harsh words’ Perry has had for Romney. ‘It almost sounds like Occupy Wall Street,’ he noted, ‘it doesn’t sound like someone who is governing Texas as a conservative.’”

Romney created 100K jobs.
No one is denying his job creating skills. The Chinese can attest to it but were any of the jobs created in America?

Perry needs to go, he’s just Nomination insurance for Romney to keep splitting the vote.

“‘I don’t want America to be a nation that’s primarily known for financial speculation,’ the president said during the event in the East Room. ‘I want us to be known for making and selling products all over the world stamped with three proud words: ‘Made in America.’

The reality is we aren’t going to manufacture like we did. We can create intellectual property, patents, software programs, content. And we shouldn’t be ashamed of providing financial services and investment in startups. It’s one of the few things we still do well. “Made in America”? That’s old thinking, Mr. President.

That’s 100k more than Obama has created.

Though to be fair, Obama has created far more professional welfare recipients.

Allah, you’ll screw up your bowels with this attempted steady diet of red meat. How about some REAL news for a change. Something significant, like the real backgrounds and associations of Obama’s appointees. No, instead it’s this superficial campaign infighting crap. Is this really all you are going to shovel for the next 9mos?

Romney is going to have to do a little bit of explaining “creative destruction”. Me thinks this will not go well with the American people.

Romeny cut the size of governement in MA. He brought us from a 3 billion dollar deficit to a 500 million dollar surplus. When it comes to managing money, Romeny knows what he’s doing.

Palin is running with the stampeding herd of convetional wisdom. What’s wrong with this has been? Perry is just as bad.

I just can’t believe this is happening. I just can’t believe that all Romney had to do was sit back and wait for everyone around him to implode. Now they’re all just grasping at straws. And what’s with the ‘Rick Santorum’s Italian ancestors were all hardcore Communists’ meme? Are we supposed to infer that this information combined with his hits on Romney’s business practices will result in Santorum suddenly reverting to Communism himself? WTF?

cynccook on January 11, 2012 at 10:50 PM

liberal4life on January 11, 2012 at 10:44 PM

Just stop. No he didn’t. Don’t use Obama math just to pump up the guy you like. To get to 100k Romney takes the number of people working at those companies TODAY and not when he left Bain Capital 13 years ago. It would be akin to President Carter claiming tens of millions of jobs created.

JPeterman on January 11, 2012 at 10:54 PM

As a native Texan with deep ancestral and family ties to South Carolina, I am writing this letter to implore my fellow Republicans and conservatives in the Palmetto State to lend their support to Gov. Rick Perry’s Presidential campaign.

The media would have you believe that your vote has already been superseded by a tiny number of caucus goers in Iowa and primary voters in New Hampshire. In fact, the choice of a Republican nominee, and, by extension, the future of this country, is directly in the hands of South Carolina voters. You have it in your power to change the nature of this race and to silence the voices of conventional wisdom that would have you believe that your choices have already been limited by Midwestern and northeastern voters whose values have little to do with those of us who live south of the Mason-Dixon Line or west of the Mississippi.

If this nominating process was truly about who is most qualified to serve as commander-in-chief and as chief executive of the federal government, Rick Perry would be selected by acclamation. No other candidate in the field possesses the executive experience and proven track record of Gov. Perry, who has presided for ten years over the nation’s most vibrant state economy.

If Texas was an independent nation, it would represent the 13th most powerful economy in the world. It is also a diverse economy dependent upon unfettered trade, manufacturing, service industries, high tech, medical research, financial industries, energy production, farming and ranching. In other words, it is a mirror of the United States as a whole. Perry has not just presided over our state’s growth; he has played an integral role in that expansion through his support for tort reform, spending and taxing restraint, minimal regulations and maximum freedom of action. Governor Perry does not just talk about economic growth; he has promoted and fostered it throughout his ten years as Texas governor.

Perry’s economic and government reform proposals are the boldest and most far-reaching of any candidate, as certified by the Wall Street Journal, former Presidential Candidate Steve Forbes, the Club for Growth and many other conservative voices. His plan to replace the current convoluted Internal Revenue system with a simple, flat tax; constitutionally cap and limit the federal government’s size and growth and the scope of its spending; make congress a part-time institution subject to the laws it passes for others; and fully develop all of our nation’s energy resources would both ignite unprecedented economic growth and restore our Founders’ original concept of a limited, central government presiding over strong, vibrant states.

Governor Perry is also a man of unquestioned integrity and high principle. As a former Air Force Captain and C-130 pilot, Rick Perry is the only candidate in the Republican field who voluntarily served his nation in uniform. He is committed to maintaining the strongest military on earth and would never apologize to anyone anywhere for unflinchingly defending American interests at home and abroad.

Perry’s personal virtues were forged in rural west Texas, where he grew up as the son of tenant farmers, scratching a living from a land more suited to growing cactus than cotton. He understands the value of hard work and the satisfaction that comes from a day of honest labor that blisters the hands but forges steel in your spine. He was an Eagle Scout and outstanding high school athlete who married his high school sweetheart and remains devoted to her and to their children.

Perry did not join the National Rifle Association in order to curry votes or claim to be a hunter despite no evidence of hunting. Perry is the real deal. He is a lifelong gun owner, shooter and hunter who can assemble, clean and use a rifle, handgun or shotgun as skillfully as he can fly a plane or operate and maintain a John Deere tractor.

While he never talks about it or publicizes it in any way, he is also a man who has carried out hundreds of small and not so small private kindnesses for cancer victims, wounded warriors and others. He has done so without publicity and with no thought or expectation of political benefit; but rather because it was simply the right thing to do.

Much has been made of Governor Perry’s early debate performances. Perhaps that might matter more if we were choosing a television game host, rather than a national leader and commander-in-chief. In fact, Governor Perry got into the race very late, at the urging of others, and like any candidate new to the national scene it took him awhile to hit his stride. Meanwhile, he was being attacked and dragged down by the lesser candidates in the field and relentlessly smeared by the national media. He has grown from that experience, however, and over the last two months has been one of the better debaters on the stage. We have a saying down in Texas. Talk is cheap, and actions speak louder than words. The actions Gov. Perry has taken over his years as governor speak for themselves, and his fidelity to conservative principles has never wavered during his entire career in office.

I will conclude by saying I have no connection of any kind to the Perry campaign. I have been a lifelong, conservative Republican, a local precinct chairman and a two-time state delegate for Ronald Reagan, in 1976 and in 1980. Not since Ronald Reagan have conservatives had an opportunity to support and advance a man of such genuine character, principle and ability as they do now with Governor Perry. As a member of the Quattlebaum family, which has long lineage in South Carolina, I implore all South Carolina Republicans to come to the aid of those of us outside your state by supporting the one man in the Republican field with the capacity, qualifications, deep principles and guts to steer our nation back on a steady course toward prosperity, limited government and individual freedom.

Texans have a proud history of drawing a line in the sand and refusing to cross it. In fact, the man who started that tradition, Alamo commander William Travis, was a son of South Carolina. We beseech South Carolinians to draw that line for us again, this time in the rich soil of your state, and take the first real step in making Rick Perry the next President of the United States.

Her last remark was right on the money though. Better to get this stuff out in the open now than have it come up for the first time during the general election. That way when Obama and the Democrat/media complex inevitably regurgitates the same tired attacks, they’ll seem stale and everyone will be numbed to them.

KOOLAID2 on January 11, 2012 at 10:57 PM

The thing is that its an utter lie. Romney doesn’t get credit for the rest of his life if Staples keeps hiring people. Romney is using the companies employment numbers from 2011 so that he can claim 100k and not the numbers back when he left Bain Capital. Its akin to Carter claiming millions of jobs created simply because he is still alive and the US has millions and millions more jobs now.

thphilli on January 11, 2012 at 11:00 PM

Obama even trotted out some people who lost their jobs because of Bain.

Doughboy on January 11, 2012 at 10:55 PM

There’s nothing to “get out”. The whole Bain argument is pathetic. The only reason it has any life is because Newtered and his pet, Perry, went full retard taking the OWS line (for some reason that they will never be forgiven for) and Mittens has been about a retarded in taking the other OWS line in order to defend himself – standing tall with the Marxist America-hater who was just trying to save poor GM and make it a profitable company … just like Bain.

Yeah … it’s good to know what a pathetic worm Mittens is now, but the Bain story is a non-issue. That’s your standard lefties hate capitalism that gets the standard defense of the private market. Nothing to have to gear up for, in any way.

This whole scene has been an embarrassment of epic proportions. And at a time when the US can’t afford it. Sad.

hey, did you ever tell us who Jacob Lew is? You seen very unconcerned about the Obama/WS express.

As a lib, why do you support crony capitalism. GE exported CFL jobs to china…GE is buds with obama.

As long as your team wins? Is that it?

That should make you happy, were it true. Just means you don’t have to work for a living. Isn’t that what liberals are all about? Mooching off the welfare state?

Well after taking so much money from you dumb Palintologists, whe was supposed to be winning the nomination and on her way to leading the free world. YOU BETCHA!!!!

Her presidency lives only in your mind now.

Did the meds help you stop seeing Sarah Palin in all reflective objects? Your family was so worried after you took a sledge hammer to the toaster while screaming “Sarah!!! Stop watching me!!!”

Oromney, we feel your bain, man. If he is the nominee, this will only intensify. At every campaign stop,and on every MSM talk show, there will be a “Bain” sob story. You think dragging out the uninsured victims were bad during Obamacare you “aint” seen nothing yet.

I can see Oprah devoting a tear jerking weekly segment on Bain Victims. The loons on the view will parade these victims weekly. By the time Obama and his Mafia get through with this, Oromney will be toast. I can see it now. Lives lost to suicide, marriages destroyed due to financial ruin. Children orphaned due to job loss. Granny put out on street. Whole families made homeless. In fact, PETA will join in by showing family pets that were abandoned, starved to death, and piles of them shown in mass graves from euthanization. Romney’s dog atop the car will be mild in comparison.

Oh, the horror and misery Oromney caused. Anyone agreeing to be Oromney’s VP will never be heard from again.
So, I got a little carried away. But just a little.But the dems always really get carried away.

I watched it and didn’t think it was a bunch of “Queen for a Day” people wanting to feed off the government. I thought it was real people who were proudly working and then told they had been bought up and fired.

I dont know if a lot of apolitical people will watch it but it’s got devastating sound clips Obama should use. I repeat that he (Romney) defend the Bain

I cannot understand why so many people do not realize that entrepreneurs do not set out to create jobs – they set out to create a market for their ideas/products, with which to gain wealth. The jobs are a by-product.

OldEnglish on January 11, 2012 at 11:06 PM

Also, I’ll be running down Romney for as many years as it takes for people to wake up and discover the fraud that he is.

Romney is the Republican Obama.

portlandon on January 11, 2012 at 11:02 PM

Yes, and youve been SOOOO effective. If not for you, Romney would probably be the Republican front-runner

Soon to be famous quotes from Chairman Newton Sergeyevich Gingchev and Vice Chairman Ricardo Sergeyevich Perrychev:

“We will give you all completely secure government jobs and end capitalism. No more vultures!”

“Capitalism, we will bury you!”

“Mr. Romney, tear down that capitalist wall!”

“We will take a shovel and dig a deep grave, and bury capitalism as deep as wecan”.

“WE will lead the OWS proletariat and together we will be the undertakers of capitalism”.

Carthoris on January 11, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Palin has never uttered a sentence that wasn’t said better by someone smarter the week before. I can almost tell you exactly what and who she reads. Too bad she couldn’t tell Couric the answer to that question.

Wow, you had to back to 2008 for that one….LOL

idesign on January 11, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Romney should really defend his Bain stuff or else the won will do it for him.

He has last cycle and is again right now. The only reason it doesn’t seem like Romney isn’t defending himself is because Newt, Perry and Huntsman are out screeching about it on every newtwork. What else do you suggest Romney do? Make a 27 minute video?

Palin is right on what she said. Don’t be mad that Mitt isn’t prepared for these attacks.

Midwestprincesse on January 11, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Thank you for posting the video of Palin’s worst moment as a overpaid analyst for Fox News. I wish I had a transcript to ‘vet’ it word by word. It appears the average commenter at Hot Air is more informed about than she is. What she “believes” Perry has been saying is not what Perry has been saying.

“‘I don’t want America to be a nation that’s primarily known for financial speculation,’ the president said during the event in the East Room. ‘I want us to be known for making and selling products all over the world stamped with three proud words: ‘Made in America.’

Ah, he must be getting ready to push Jeffrey Immelt off his Biz Team./

“They will tell you who they fear.” The White House must be scared to death to face Romney if they’re resorting to that already.

KingGold on January 11, 2012 at 10:47 PM

I think as every day goes by he fears less, He sees in front of his own eyes the fruits of his OWS crowd, and he is liking it,

Sure Romney May be stronger then the other candidates, but that’s more of a statement on the rest of the field,

I would put Romney’s chances at about 30% (and that’s conservative)

Of course with Newt they will just make him angry and he will go nuclear on himself,

I am starting to warm up to Santorum, I think i am going to fly to florida to vote for him, He is showing his decency and respect every day, And the Perry & Gingrich people have the chutzpah to call Santorum big government when their guys are out spewing OWS crap

Savage wrote in his book “the political zoo” (6 years ago) Gingrich is the wildest animal of this zoo, Nobody knows who he will bite next, and where he will bite, but all animals know he will bite you even if he will die while biting you, In explaining how Gingrich can sell out in a second and nobody knows why or what, even if he bleeds it doesn’t matter, Sad but true

OrthodoxJew on January 11, 2012 at 11:11 PM

Staples were kept alive by getting their supplies directly from the Chinese, in a sense you are right. Romney did keep staples alive but he created thousands of Chinese jobs as well

liberal4life on January 11, 2012 at 10:58 PM

And…..

You think this is new???

H@ll…in my state we have a Chinese solar panel manufacturing plant that can’t pay their power bill….$1.9 million..
Ironic. Maybe if solar was the cure all…they would have put some of their panels up and powered the building..

At the time..it brought a hundred new jobs in our state.
Who would have frowned at that..

JohnGalt23 on January 11, 2012 at 11:11 PM

Romney created 100K jobs.
No one is denying his job creating skills. The Chinese can attest to it but were any of the jobs created in America?

liberal4life on January 11, 2012 at 10:44 PM

A few years ago, it was 10,000. All the sudden the number jumpe to 100,000.

Boy that Mitt Math sure is crazy, isn’t it?

stenwin77 on January 11, 2012 at 11:11 PM

We had birthers now we have Taxers….

Let’s face it…Palin is on Perry’s side and is anti-capitalist.

Mitt has far worse things coming out against him in future. This is called trickle out.

Plus, it was a knock-out performance.

How many of these Made in America jobs did Bain create in net jobs? Do tell. (They very well could be more than the net loss to jobs overseas.)
