Quotes of the day

posted at 10:45 pm on January 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

“But until Brian Williams called ‘time,’ it was Mr. Gingrich that seemed knocked back on his heels by the relentless assault from Mr. Romney…

“Today, the mild-mannered Mr. Romney is gone.

“‘You can call it whatever you like. I call it influence peddling,’ Mr. Romney said, looking straight at his chief rival. ‘It is not right. You have a conflict.’

“He continued to criticize Mr. Gingrich: ‘You spent 15 years in Washington, on K street. This is a real problem.’”

Azz in Chief to use the SOTU, which is supposed to tell the congress/people what the state of the union is…to actually call for “fairness” and 4 more years.

Frankly I think Republicans will ignore his baggage, as was proven in conservative South Carolina. And it would be very strange for democrats to take the “moral” high ground against Newt’s affairs and multiple marriages when they spent 8 years defending BJ Clinton…

wildcat72 on January 23, 2012 at 11:36 PM

Why would it be strange for Democrats to take the moral high ground? Conservatives spent years attacking Clinton for his affairs and now they are defending Gingrich. It’s obvious that moral principles are elastic for both parties.

Economic inequality is emerging as a central theme in the battle for the White House, with Obama trying to harness populist anger at Wall Street and corporations against a backdrop of chronically high unemployment. He plans to call for higher taxes on millionaires in his State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night, embracing an idea advanced by billionaire investor Warren Buffett and Occupy Wall Street protesters.

And so the obama/wapo/soros machine frames the elections…rich v. poor, socialists v. capitalists, good v. evil.

and everyone will happily fall in line and vote in obama 54-46

you heard it here first…higher point margin that in 08. A New America needs to be founded. A synthesis of the progressive republicanism of TR with the leftism of the elites

unless, of course, there’s a third party…then 52/38/10 barry by 12

Not to stereotype but certain things she says and the tone leads me to believe she is a she. A mean “she” nevertheless. For instance calling her marriage partner spouse rather than husband/wife. Who talks like that?

I finally watched the last of the videos on this, after reading most of the comments. Romney is going to be comfortable with attacks on Newt, as long as Newt allows him to. That’s my opinion. If Newt gets the nomination in the end, the most powerful VP choice he could make is Palin. That’s my opinion. If BOR has Ann on after a Palin VP announcement, BOR’s crew will have to use trank guns on Coulter.

Gingrich had the discipline to let Romney’s attacks slide right off his back.

I’d say he’s serious and he knows what to do.

Mitt was determined to make Newt blow up, nice try, no cigar.

Hey Cindy, There may be many HERE, who believe that she is the reason, or at least SAY that she is the reason, but I’ve noticed that a lot of the persistently vocal ones start off by spouting off about how long they have been conservative voting. There LOTS of people like myself who like to click links and read the comments, who don’t feel DRIVEN to correct the entire internet, at one sitting. I don’t believe that just because something is said loudly that it is even relevant. Just my opinion.

The effort will be to de-leginmate the R…they don’t necessary want you to convert…just stay home. I mean really, do you want to vote for a creepy religion that only recently allowed blacks? And that dis-allowed polygamy?

Bill Gates tried to push a nasty millionaire’s tax in Washington and his father had to campaign against it. The tax failed, but Bill won’t give up on allowing the state to rape taxpayers.

You’re wrong on your facts there champ. Bill Gates Sr (the dad) helped initiate I-1098 – known as the millionaire’s tax. He contributed $ 500,000 to the campaign.

Cindy Munford on January 24, 2012 at 2:24 AM

Some people seem quite obsessed with csdeven. Her name pops up often, even in her absence. It’s not hard to see why. Csdeven is clearly more intelligent, witty and humorous than all of you put together. Just stating the obvious here. She bests you all at every turn, and it seems to drive many of you crazy.

By the way, Cind, it’s probably for the best that you don’t go head-to-head with or engage csdeven. To be honest, you’re not really in her league, from what I’ve seen. Maybe some people need to engage in frequent passive-aggression with snide remarks and foster little buddy-buddy cliques on here (“night night, sweetie poo poo. aren’t I adorable?” — excuse me, can someone pass the barf bag?), but I don’t find it too impressive. Csdeven posts thoughtful comments that obviously have an impact. Yours, Cind? Not so much. You’re just kind of always… well, there. I’ve seen csdeven easily take many of you on at once. You’re like little jealous puppies sniping and biting at the heels of csdeven. Kind of sad, actually.

Just thought I’d let you know how it looks from an outsider looking in. Carry on!

tinkerthinker on January 24, 2012 at 6:23 AM

And Gingrich certainly is without shame. He supported the Vietnam War (he has said so himself) but refused to go by dodging the draft. If he had not supported it, then that would be another mater, but he did support it and was too much of a chickenhawk to even risk going himself. But now we are suppose to believe he is brave as he attacks the MSM at a debate. Not that they didn’t deserve it, but this requires no courage at all, especially not in front of a Republican audience. If attacking like this were a sign of courage then Lawrence O’Donnell would be Richard the Lionhearted for attacking Rush Limbaugh in front of democrats. How so many “conservatives” can fall for this P.T. Barnum, Dr. Jeckle and Mr. Hyde is absolutely astounding. Even Inspector Clouseau would have figured him out by now, even if he was being attack by Cato and being shot at by Chief Inspector Dreyfus at the same time.

Reagan-Bush 1980 Primary Campaign

But Bush always saw the principal challenge before him to be winning conservative support, to convincing conservatives that someone from Yale was supportable. So his pitch was to conservatives. He hoped that his ties with the moderates, links developed by years in Congress, by his service as head of the Republican Party, by his trip to China as Nixon’s representative and by his tenure as head of the CIA would hold him in good stead. As candidate, as a campaigner, Bush deliberately appealed to conservatives, sounding much like Reagan on foreign policy and national security issues.

He took the moderates for granted and tried to out-Reagan Reagan. The old diehard conservatives were never fooled. They know the real thing when they see it.

Healy, Robert. Boston Globe 23 Apr 1980: 1.

You should know your own candidate’s history before trying to re-litigate the Vietnam War:

Romney also points to his experience between June 1966 and December 1968, when he served as a Mormon missionary in France. That experience allowed him a deferment from the draft during the heaviest fighting of the Vietnam War, a conflict he at first supported but later became disillusioned over. According to his Selectice Service records, Romney was given a deferment for those serving as a “minister of religion or divinity student.”
Romney is yet to be tested in politics: [City Edition]
Phillips, Frank. Boston Globe (pre-1997 Fulltext) [Boston, Mass] 09 May 1994: 15.

Mitt was never a divinity student, but used a loophole to avoid serving. So, I don’t think Romney supporters should go there.

Oh My…Romney is big investor and trader in Fannie and Freddie

Romney is done. The idea that Mr. Crony Capitalism Mitt Romney has anything but love for his friends and cohorts on K Street is a joke.

Romney == GO HOME You would be a SURE LOSER to Obama and all you are doing now is helping your fellow Romneycare/Obamacare buddy

That alone should be reason for avoiding NBC debates. And then, there are the questions.

I’m willing to give NBC the award for worst debate performance by a debate host! ;-)

JonBGood:By the third debate,the Leftys have turned the GOP
nominees into a side-show,er,circus!

Do you think Republicans should refuse to do any more NBC debates?

It appeared to me that NBC was deliberately trying to put the Republican field in a poor light by the poor choice of questions and the atmosphere.

JonBGood on January 24, 2012 at 6:47 AM

My nephew, who just turned 18, described the Romney performance as quarrelsome. I thought that was a good description.

JonBGood on January 24, 2012 at 6:40 AM

Hahaaa! Yes, I saw how he attacked Newt. Trouble is Mitt would never do that with obama. You know..obama is a good guy, just in over his head stuff.

tinkerthinker on January 24, 2012 at 6:50 AM

The whole debate was so meh, that I give all the candidates a P for pass. And NBC gets an F for failure.

JonBGood on January 24, 2012 at 6:50 AM

So,I wonder,in tonights SOTUA,will there be Lib/ReP
buddy system,seated side by side?!

The problem with Mitt’s attacks is that they were half-truths, untruths and distortions.

The people always figure out the difference in the end.

That’s always been a problem for Mitt. His campaign consultants create these false narratives and then facts come out and the people realize that the narrative is false and reject it and then reject Mitt for presenting it.

It’s been a problem in his previous campaigns too.

LOL! That was the silliest thing I’ve seen yet. Grown adults acting like they are in kindergarten. No wonder nobody likes Congress.

Geezzzz, a Trump debate would have been better!

tinkerthinker on January 24, 2012 at 6:54 AM

The only debate I’d like to see is where all the candidates debate among themselves.

That way, we can gauge who has the substance and the communication skills to make the case for the party in the General Election.

JonBGood:

Refusing the Lib moderated Debate,yes.So far,the Left have been
causing damage,by pitting nominees against each other!

And then,after the debates,the op-ed pieces,and talking shows
use whatever is said,twisting/twirling there words!

And,its only damaging the GOP,and its message!!

I cannot understand what the GOP/RNC is thinking with
the Lefty debate Formats!!

canopfor on January 24, 2012 at 6:59 AM

Actualyy Mitt and Newt have something in common. Here’s my take.

kingsjester on January 24, 2012 at 6:59 AM

-Yup kill babies that some may see? Sounds fair -if you’re not the human whose life was snuffed out by a Godless world….

In other news, a horse escaped from a barn, but we can all relax because the entire community rushed to close the empty barn door, meanwhile no one knows what the horse is doing….

Must apologize for mixing up two issues, computers remember old things too well – I was refering to the Aussies coming to help scare Iran – perhaps were getting tough much too late?
