Quotes of the day

posted at 11:20 pm on January 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

“President Obama pledged on Tuesday night to use government power to balance the scale between America’s rich and the rest of the public, seeking to present an election-year choice between his continued leadership toward an economy ‘built to last’ and a Republican argument that the country would benefit from less federal intervention.”

***

“‘On these evenings, Presidents naturally seek to find the sunny side of our national condition,’ Daniels said. ‘But when President Obama claims that the state of our union is anything but grave, he must know in his heart that this is not true.’…

“‘The mortal enemies of Social Security and Medicare are those who, in contempt of the plain arithmetic, continue to mislead Americans that we should change nothing,’ Daniels said.”

Uh-oh, sounds like maybe he’s planning to confiscate the 40lk’s and IRA’s of folks making more per year than some arbitrary number in his head. The Libs have been chattering about this for some time now.

Maybe he’s planning on issuing a EO to confiscate any gold being held by private investors.

Simple question. Who was the last candidate in a general election to win the Presidency with less charisma then his opponent. I think it was probably Truman over Dewey, but I am not sure about Dewey’s charisma. If not you have to go back before FDR. So who has won with less charisma?

Run don’t walk, to the right, its the single most important action in the liberal election cycle blueprint.

Jerry Brown won against a moderate Whitman by doing exactly that and its why the GOP must never compromise Conservative principles.

Otherwise this was an effort by the President to convince the public that because some people make more than secretaries, they owe most of what they’ve earned through double, triple and even quadruple taxation, on the same money, to people who don’t have as much. And everyone should work for his glory.

After the Obama vigorish, of course.

America’s rich aren’t the problem. The way to balance things better is not to make the rich poorer. What Obama needs to do is get government out of the way and let the economy expand. Cut deficits, cut regulatory red tape, cut the size of government agencies.

Envy politics isn’t going to work.

Obama is playing an old socialist game. You enact policies that create a bunch of poor people then point out that some are still rich and rally the emotions of the poor by villainizing them.

It’s a sick game of pitting Americans against Americans and the Americans that are being targeted didn’t cause the problem.

I’m no expert and can only go by what I’ve read, but I think Gerald Ford had more charisma than Jimmy Carter. And since Ford was a klutz and always tripping over things, he was good for a few laughs.

That’s just it. The Republicans ARE offering tax hikes. They agreed to several hundred billion in “new revenues” a few months back when they were negotiating with the Dems in the supercommittee. And guess what? The Dems still claimed in the end that this wasn’t enough.

That’s the whole point. The GOP could offer Obama $2 trillion in new taxes tomorrow and he’d still find a reason to say no. He needs to get literally nothing done on tax reform between now and November so he can run on a platform of class warfare and an obstructionist Republican Party. His supporters will buy that crap and vote for him regardless. The key is that enough independents and moderates don’t fall for that nonsense.

So, in a display of courage and absolute confidence, the RNC rolls out Mitch Daniels to rebut the exceptionally good Liar-in-Chief, the same Mitch Daniels who, while a good governor, sounds like a robot or a high school student reading his term paper to the class or the guy down the hall from bookkeeping.

So, RNC, you put Reader Boy out there to rebut the SOTU delivered by the best liar and phony in the history of nations. Real smart, RNC, but somehow I don’t think you’ll be sponsoring any Mensa meetings any time soon. What a joke!

I’m starting to believe that Priebus and the RNC want Obama re-elected. They are looking at 2016, I’m afraid, thinking that the nation will survive another four years of him, and then they get Republican dominance for many years to come, the RNC becoming the savior of the USA. Yes, after four more years of Obama, the extreme rich will survive and prosper, they always do no matter who’s in power or what nation they are in, but the RNC and this nation will no longer exist as we know it if Obama wins, the RNC’s ultimate miscalculation.

Go to hell, go to hell, RNC, we are sick of you and your games.

Byron York lays out the truth behind Newt 300K thing

http://campaign2012.washingtonexaminer.com/article/what-really-happened-gingrich-ethics-case/336051

Key player David Bonior.

Upon the election of Barack Obama in November 2008, Bonior was a member of the President’s-Elect economic advisory board. [1] He was honored by the Democratic Socialists of America in December 2008.[8]

An indictment unsealed in Detroit on March 26, 2008 accused Muthanna Al-Hanooti, a member of a Michigan nonprofit group, of arranging for three members of Congress to travel to Iraq in October 2002 at the behest of Saddam Hussein’s regime, paid for by Iraqi intelligence officials.[9] The dates from the indictment correspond to a trip by Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott of Washington, David Bonior of Michigan and Mike Thompson of California.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_E._Bonior

The York piece shows the power of the Left and its PR machine, aka MSM

All Rs are terrified of being accused by the left/press. An entire career can be destroyed by the left/media.

Most leftists are single party people…not comfortable with an opposition party

I’m sure Governor Daniels is a wonderful, intelligent human being, but he would put an adrenaline junky mainlining caffine to sleep. When is the Republican leadership going to realize they have an enormous public relations problem? Everyone they send before the public comes across as a repugnant bean counter. They have the best philosophy for revitalizing the country but fail miserably when presenting it. Like it or not, everything is packaged for promotion—the solution may be castor oil, but at least lace it with some sugar—find someone who has charisma.

Yep, noted and I will work on it.

The Messiah really spoke from the mountaintop tonight!

Horace on January 24, 2012 at 11:46 PM

Messiah on the mountain top
Burning like a silver flame
The summit of lies and pride
Obama was his name

He’s got it
Yeah, baby, he’s got it
I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire
Well, I’m your Venus, I’m your fire
At your desire

Check out the new RNC ad of Obama’s SOTU’s being the same almost every year-

I admit Carter-Ford is really close. But I think Carter had some southern charm. Ford was as bland as anybody.

Even if Ford had more charisma, it was a very close election and watergate and Ford’s RINOism dragged him down.

Probably the closest example though. Call it a draw. Which the election was[50-48].

My sister, ostensibly semi-conservative, texted me to say she might vote for Obama if he really went through with the ‘tax cuts to companies who bring jobs back to the US, and taxes on ones who dont’ (or something to that effect).

I replied via text that I wondered which two of his donors (Buffett probably knows) own companies with 7 total jobs overseas, and how many hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars those two donors would receive for moving those 7 jobs back to the US (who are most likely family members, by the way) – and how many other non-connected companies will see their tax bills skyrocket forcing even more loss of domestic jobs with tens of thousands of layoffs and inflation here domestically…

She hasn’t replied yet.

I’d say Obama won the SOTU debate hands down

DHChron on January 25, 2012 at 12:07 AM

Meh.

It was a long and boring monologue, poorly delivered by a man-child who has no soul and who is hell-bent on destroying our country.

Remember this, DHChron: If Obama is re-elected and has free reign to complete his efforts to collapse our economy and make us all dependent upon the government, you will be standing in the same bread lines alongside the conservatives you despise. Being a liberal won’t save you from hunger and poverty.

GrannyDee on January 25, 2012 at 12:16 AM

Daniels dismantled about every argument for liberalism in about 10 minutes, but he didn’t call Obama a communist so he must be an effete pushover.

Silliest quotes of the day:

everyone gets a fair shot

everyone does their fair share

everyone plays by the same set of rules

So tell me, who decides what’s fair and whose set of rules are we playing by?…

Why, the Abortion & Food Stamp President, that’s who. His daughters are dreaming of having an abortion, aren’t they? According to him, every woman should have one. Yeah, let’s vote for the guy who never wants to be a grandfather and wants to impoverish the nation
