Quotes of the day

posted at 10:52 pm on January 17, 2012 by Allahpundit

“The questions keep coming. ‘And who was in charge of the body that writes the budget the last time we had a balanced budget in this country?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘Who reformed welfare?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘Who brought the Clinton administration to heel?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘Who do we need in Washington?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘Who do we need making our case on that stage in a debate against President Obama in October and November?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘Who did you see last night was the only guy on the stage that was going to be able to go toe to toe with Chicago politics?’ ‘Newt!’ ‘And who’s the Pee Dee and South Carolina going to vote for come Saturday?’ ‘Newt!’

“Gingrich’s stellar debate performance Monday night in Myrtle Beach seems to have reinvigorated him. He reviews for the crowd his response in the debate to Juan Williams’s question on race and poverty, when Gingrich said that “every American of every background has been endowed by their creator with the right to pursue happiness. And if that makes liberals unhappy, I’m going to continue to find ways to help poor.’

“‘All of the sudden, the audience, spontaneously, started standing and applauding,’ Gingrich reminds today’s crowd. ‘The reason I think they were doing it is we have been fed so much baloney by our liberal elites and we are so sick of people who don’t get it that I think people are just grateful to have somebody who has the courage to tell the truth.’”

***

“There were signs across the state that voters were giving Mr. Gingrich a second look. The Romney campaign had negative advertisements against Mr. Gingrich at the ready, aides said, and scheduled a call with reporters on Wednesday to discuss Mr. Gingrich’s record ‘as an unreliable leader.’…

“[Santorum] referred to himself as a bold and consistent candidate to draw a contrast with Mr. Gingrich, his chief rival, whom he referred to as ‘bold, but all over the place.’

“‘This is one of the concerns that people have about Newt,’ said Mr. Santorum, who served with Mr. Gingrich in Congress. ‘He has this disconnection with reality that is very disconcerting for someone who wants to lead our country.’”

***

“What you really have, then, is something like this: about 25 percent of Republican voters are in Mr. Romney’s base (incidentally, about 22 percent of Republicans nationwide voted for Mr. Romney in their party’s primaries in 2008). And about 30 percent of the Republican primary electorate is truly opposed to him…

“That leaves a swing group of about 45 percent of the vote. These voters can certainly imagine candidates that they’d prefer to Mr. Romney — but they also consider him an acceptable choice, more or less.

“What seems to have become clear is that the hypothetical candidate these voters might have preferred to Mr. Romney has not materialized.”

***

“‘If I had to vote in South Carolina, in order to keep this thing going, I would vote for Newt and I would want this to continue – more debates, more vetting of candidates, because we know the mistake made in our country four years ago was having a candidate who was not vetted to the degree he should have been,’ she told Hannity from her home in Alaska…

“‘I want to see this [race] continue because iron sharpens iron, steel sharpens steel,’ she said.”

You three are NOT going to stop criticizing Sarah for “being an irrelevant ‘has been’, who’s too dumb and/or greedy to recognize her time is LONG past, but continues to ‘open her irrelevant mouth anyway,’ doing significant damage to the Republican Party, from which we probably won’t recover, thereby ensuring Obama’s reelection.”

Every governor leaves Alaska with a surplus.. That’s a non-achievement in a state so stunningly resource-rich that not only has there never been a state income for citizens (only for business), but citizens actually collect a dividend for living there. And groundwork for the TransCanada deal was in place, with defined alternate routes, for decades before Palin became Governor.

In the private sector Mitt made about 2 billion for his investors. Sarah was what, a TV weather girl?

Your turn.

Boy, you don’t seem to think endorsements are worthless when they are for your guy. The Romneybots are all over this site touting the latest Mitt endorsement. Now, if your implying that Palin’s endorsement isn’t worth a “hill of beans,” then you are plain being intellectually dishonest. She is the former republican VP nominee, former governor of Alaska, and a well-respected spokesperson for the tea party movement. Enough said. KickandSwimMom on January 18, 2012 at 9:38 AM

Given Palin’s favorability rating among Independents her endorsement of Gingrich will likely help Romney in the General election.

In other words, Romney’s overall support among those he has to depend on to get elected president is lukewarm at best. Sound familiar?

At this point, I don’t care if Newt surges or Santorum surges or Perry surges.

As long as one of them surges soon and the other 2 drop out. It doesn’t look good, but any one of them still as “a” possible chance, strong or weak chance.

Any one of them would make a better candidate and a better president than Romney. Romney will not come off well in the general, that is a myth.

The only thing scarier than a Romney/Obama choice, would be Ron Paul thrown in there as the Republican or a third party.

First the groundwork for TransCanada was not in place because for over 30 years ExxonMobil refused to honor the contract it signed. Sarah voided that contract, then started afresh with new negotiations. ExxonMobil, Conoco-Philips threatened her with a lawsuit and she said I quote “I know the way to the courthouse too.” They relented, entered into negotiations with a “TV weather girl” and she signed the largest private sector deal in US history with TransCanada. Not even Mitt $2 billion for his investors comes close to that.

Second she was not a tv weather girl but a sportscaster. She is a small business owner, owning her own commercial fishing business for over 20 years now. She has been successful at this, done this not by corporate raiding but by working hard.

Third Romney on “No new taxes” pledge

When asked to sign a “No New Taxes” pledge,
A. Romney signed it and bragged about it in
speeches.

B. Romney refused to sign it, calling it a “gimmick”.

C. Both A and B.

Answer C. He did both. Your turn.

Wrong. It is a great achievement. Knowles left Alaska with a $3.6 billion general fund. Murkowski finished off with a $7.6 billion fund balance. When Palin left office, she had grown the general fund to an unprecedented $15.5 billion.

She averaged a general fund surplus of $2.6 billion per year, compared to just $1.0 billion for Murkowski, who, by the way, did run a deficit of $110 million his first fiscal year. Tony Knowles ran deficits of $670 million in FY02 and $571 million in FY03.

And groundwork for the TransCanada deal was in place, with defined alternate routes, for decades before Palin became Governor.

I don’t think people are wanting to deny Sarah Palin the right to endorse whomever she wants. I think people are saying that her endorsement isn’t worth a hill of beans, and she shouldn’t be taken that seriously or given that much attention. I think a close association with Sarah Palin is going to hurt a candidate more than it helps them.

bluegill on January 18, 2012 at 8:10 AM

For the life of me i can’t remember who that person was who had a better endorsement record than Palin in 2010? Could you be a good sport and remind me again how insignificant Palin is with your multiple posts.:)

heshtesh on January 18, 2012 at 10:55 AM

Sarah saying that she would vote for Newt if she were voting in SC is a weasel endorsement. At this point, a vote for Newt is nothing more than a protest vote, like a vote for Ron Paul. Newt is a conservative Obama, without the charm. By that I mean he can sound convincing, he speaks well and can craft a good soundbite, but his character is highly suspect (serial adulterer), his convictions are shifty (attacking capitalism ala Bain, then retreating), and he comes across as selfishly ambitious, bitter, and self-important.

By the way, Mitt Romney’s surpluses were ever shrinking:

FY04: $1.19 billion
FY05: $1.57 billion
FY06: $854 million
FY07: -$23 million

Romney grew spending in Massachusetts 110.9% while in office. That’s 101.2% greater than inflation and population growth combined. That’s 20.5% per year (19.1% more than inflation and population growth).

Compare that to just 7.4% per year for Palin (4.6% per year more than inflation and population growth).

Palin only added 12.7% to Alaska’s debt, while Romney added 44.3% to Massachusetts. Palin actually decreased Alaska’s total liabilities by 34.6%. Romney grew Massachusetts’s liabilities by 19.5%

You’re RIGHT. I should NOT have used quotations.

I was trying to echo the ‘corporate thinking’ (AS I PERCEIVED IT) of bluegill, csdeven, and yourself, as regards Sarah Palin.

I agree that thoughts are NOT quotes, and the application of quotations in my preceding post constitute a gross misuse of punctuation.
By misusing quotations, it could be said that I was ‘putting words in your mouth’ that weren’t there, and that is the same thing as LYING.
Further, by being caught in the perpetration of an act of lying, I have totally destroyed my ‘credibility.’ And as such, also any practical, further use of my posting at Hotair.com.
After all, if I have NO credibility, then why post, right?

BUT DID I ACCURATELY PRESENT, OR DID I MISREPRESENT YOUR SENTIMENTS ABOUT SARAH PALIN?

There’s a lot of stupid on this thread today.

First, Palin didn’t impose taxes on oil companies, she imposed a production tax for the land upon which the oil companies drill on. The land, the resources, whatever resources found in Alaska belongs to the citizens of Alaska as was written in the Alaska state constitution.
(e.g. it would be like you charging an oil company to drill on your lawn should you suddenly discover oil there. Your house, your lawn, your oil).

Second, What and which state is paying for these non-existent taxes Palin supposedly imposed. In case you haven’t heard Alaska is sitting on a $15.5billion permanent reserve fund. When other states are fighting about how much to cut in Alaska they are fighting about how much to save.

Dude tell me you didn’t just write what you just wrote.

Again your land, your oil, you charge whatever you want for the production of your oil ON YOUR LAND. If said oil company thinks that production of oil in Alaska is too pricey, go to Texas, Virginia, N. Carolina, etc.

You’re not subsidizing oil production in Alaska. Alaska doesn’t set the world market price for a barrel of oil. I can’t believe you made write this out for you. Jesus!

shhh! don’t tell them as far as they are concerned she just dropped from the heavens onto Dayton, Ohio on August 29 2008.

Face it, the Romney shills all just want to be the mother of his next child..the most angry and petulant of the bunch realize it’s just not physically possible

So is the 200 page opposition book on Romney leaked last night a non-story?

Cindy Munford on January 18, 2012 at 11:37 AM

I was surprised to check in and find it’s not even mentioned in the headlines.

INC on January 18, 2012 at 2:28 PM

Cindy,

http://biggovernment.com/ listed it last night at the top in their headlines. It’s still there.

That would be Jailbreak. Heifer is loco when it comes to her precious.

Yeah, that’s what’s weird. It’s only been linked to about 2 dozen times in different threads!

Every governor leaves Alaska with a surplus.. That’s a non-achievement in a state so stunningly resource-rich that not only has there never been a state income for citizens (only for business), but citizens actually collect a dividend for living there. And groundwork for the TransCanada deal was in place, with defined alternate routes, for decades before Palin became Governor.

In the private sector Mitt made about 2 billion for his investors. Sarah was what, a TV weather girl?

Your turn.

Oh, I guarantee you that if Alaska had the great state of California’s governor, Jerry Brown, it would NOT have a surplus by the end of his term.

As I said, I have not made a choice yet. The conservatives I would have gotten behind would be Palin, Rubio, West, or Ryan. But sadly they chose not to run. I can’t support Mittens or Paul. Mittens is too liberal for me and Paul is well, crazy. I like what he says about finance, but I find his foreign policy to be dangerous.

Where did Sarah endorse newter? Sarah HAS ALWAYS been a proponent of contested primaries. She understands the value of them. She wants the debate season to continue on past Florida. Ok- I get that. BUT she did not say “I endorse Newt G”- you’re making assumption.

I want the ice fishing all summer. If these clowns from Iowa, New Hampshire and the talibangelicals don’t cause an end to the primary system it will be a miracle.
Now half governor Palin thinks more vetting is required because a majority of Americans are stupid enough to vote for Obama and Joe O’Biden , when Mav and her stupidnesswere the alternative.

Thanks to the Cook County Court system I’ll be stuck with going back to ChiTcago for over a year. Those greedy crotch critters are doing everything they can to pick our pockets, but in the end they will fail.

BTW, I heard a rumor that people leaving the state of LIEberal controlled Illinois get fined. That cannot be true, can it?

Schadenfreude on January 18, 2012 at 12:16 AM

Thank you again.

When driving around ChiTcago I often wish I was driving a Combine harvester. Road rage remains alive and well in the chitty. /s
