Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:00 am on February 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

The new national frontrunner (the eleventh of the campaign) gets his turn in the spotlight this morning with appearances on three different shows. Jack Lew, Obama’s new chief of staff, will actually top him by hitting all five — a rare “full Ginsburg” — to spin the contraception “compromise” and explain how The One’s new budget will avert America’s fiscal catastrophe by squeezing a few more bucks out of the very rich. For Palin fans, though, there’s only one option: “Fox News Sunday,” where Sarahcuda will chat with Chris Wallace about the race. Seems doubtful she’ll endorse, but what about an “anybody but Romney” anti-endorsement? That’d help Santorum a lot with conservatives who are still undecided between him and Gingrich.

The complete line-up via WaPo:

NBC’s Meet the Press: Rick Santorum; Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Bill Burton, Priorities USA; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal; EJ Dionne, Brookings Institution and Washington Post; Joe Scarborough, MSNBC

ABC’s This Week: Rick Santorum; Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI);George Will, ABC; Donna Brazile, Democratic strategist; Liz Cheney, Keep America Safe; David Ignatius, Washington Post

CBS’ Face the Nation: Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX); Sen. Mitch McConell (R-KY)

Fox News Sunday: Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Sarah Palin, Fox News; Bill Kristol, Weekly Standard; Mara Liasson, NPR; Kimberley Strassel,Wall Street Journal…

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Rick Santorum; Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Sen. Joe Liebermann (I-CT); Dana Bash, CNN; Mike Duffy, Time

good morning folks!

Why doesn’t Mitt Romney ever appear on the morning shows? I believe it’s because he is so shallow and is afraid of people seeing that he is really a Democrat. . .

go Sarah Palin go!

CPAC cheers Palin’s red meat speech, but they don’t respect her judgment–because she doesn’t have good judgment, much like Newt Gingrich her favorite candidate–and extended primaries hurt the GOP candidate in the general.

Palin delivers the red meat, but conservatives don’t buy it.

CPAC CONSERVATIVES delivered a stinging rebuke to Palin’s efforts to endorse Gingrich in her speech.

ROMNEY WINS CONSERVATIVES AT CPAC in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012.

mountainaires on February 12, 2012 at 8:08 AM

Did you think that by bolding your words, it would make them somehow more powerful?

It seems to me that you know very little about what happened at CPAC. Over 10,000 people attended, but only about 3,500 bothered to vote. The reason? They know the straw poll is worthless because the ballot box is always stuffed. Usually, it’s by the Paulians, but this year it was by the Mittbots who were bussed in.

Palin never mentioned any of the candidates by name and even if she had, it wouldn’t have affected the straw poll because it took place a long time before she even spoke. Her speech was the last event of the conference.

Romney has never won the conservatives at CPAC and never will. He’s got the money to bus in a big crowd and that’s the only reason that he manages to look good in the straw polls.

From the attendees and the media, the word from CPAC was the same- there was no excitement for Romney. The attendees simply were lukewarm for his candidacy.

The biggest thing that will come out of CPAC is a revival of the spirit behind the Tea Party movement. Palin’s speech will serve as the shot in the arm that the TPers need. Although she was the last speaker, her speech will be seen as the opening volley of the war to “throw the bums out”. Her words were not meant just for the CPAC audience. It was a clarion call to everyone who wants to get back to smaller government working for all of us and not working for just the plutocrats and the other takers who continue to elect those who promise them the most.

Pennsylvania GOP leaders believe Rick Santorum isn’t a good fit for the presidency : Monday, January 09, 2012 Robert Vickers

Influential party leaders who did not want to be identified said a Santorum nomination would doom the country to four more years of Obama.
“He’s rigid, and he’s too far to the right,” said one. “We need somebody that’s going to bring us together, not drive us apart, and Rick can be divisive.”
Added another: “If Santorum is our candidate, then that’s a sure victory for Obama, and we’ll just concentrate on other state races.”

Let’s face it Pat Benatar, Whitney Houston, Linda Ronstadt all could SING! Rich voices that could express more than a single emotion. Voices with depth, confidence and soul. Female vocalists disappeared with Madonna’s tinny, little voice. Britney? Christine A, Gaga? Seriously? Music is for the ears not the eyes. All I can say is that I’m glad to see that at least some divas are emerging recently who actually have what we old timers call talent.

What did I learn? One, that you twist in the wind, were you once a storm chaser? Two, that the poster was trying to insinuate that because Palin was paid a high figure for her speeches, she must only be telling them what they want to hear, but of course his main focus was on the amount that she is paid, therefore he typed that amount. Three, you’re not very good at supporting your candidate with why he’s a conservative, but you’re very good at trying to tear down others. It’s really sad for you that Romney has to pay people to vote for him, yet Palin is paid huge sums and gets extra rooms as to accomodate those who gladly want to hear her. My question to you, will you and your mittbots learn anything from Palin on how to unify the party? I doubt it.

the_nile on February 12, 2012 at 8:53 AM

Here is the blanket statement;

Rick Santorum is too far to the right and that will guarantee 4 more years of Obama.

And a specific reason is never given. It “bogeyman politics.”

Why Santorum is the best candidate to be the nominee (assuming Palin is not running)?

1)He would maximize white voter turnout. If 76% of the electorate in 9 months is white our side wins. It was 77% in 2010.

2)He would maximize white conservative turnout. The #1 reason Obama beat McCain was that 4m+ white conservatives stayed home in 2008 and Obama got 20% of the conservative vote.

With Rick at the helm the chances are Obama would only get closer to 13% of the conservative vote as the Dems did in 2010.

3)The GOP won the white working class vote by 30 points in 2010. With Santorum’s working-class roots the chances are Santorum could do as well in 2012. If he does we win.

4)In 2010 the GOP got 60% of the white vote; the Dems 37%. Rick could duplicate that. If he does we win.

If there was no money at all but there are expenses, why would Sarah show up when she can enjoy life in Alaska or where ever she wants to be? The point is irrelevant.

CPAC made a business decision that Palin was worth hiring to speak, and that what she wants to says would draw attendees and attention to CPAC.

Sarah said what she wanted to say, including a warning to Republicans that they need to give Tea Party candidates leadership positions in congress. That shot across the bow in DC probably made some of the old guard fill their Depends.

Here is the question: “When did a social safety net become a form of social control?” I also think a smart Republican would argue that a base line of support for people is a good thing, but the Left has turned these policies into a despicable means to mold people as they see fit. I believe this would a winning argument.

Did you think that by bolding your words, it would make them somehow more powerful?

LOL! Well, the tag for bolding does say “strong” ya know.

What is this CPAC thing you’re all talking about?
On Fox & Friends this morning, all they’re talking about is some rich crack ho who OD’ed in her bathtub in Beverly Hills.

DRayRaven on February 12, 2012 at 8:55 AM

I’m a Palinista that’s in it for Romney now.

I beat myself up to a bloody pulp every day now.

You’re a Xerox machine because I haven’t seen you come up with an original idea ever.

Just like you’re an idiot, based on the many ideas you spew that few will ever touch.

When a person demands payment to speak at an event their sincerity is compromised. If she was the great conservative American who should be queen that some of you make her to be she would have run for the nomination and sewn it up by now and would be making those speeches for free….

Bradky on February 12, 2012 at 8:56 AM

Palin is a reliable conservative like the Chevy Volt is a reliable car.

NickDeringer on February 12, 2012 at 8:16 AM

I’m sick of red and her opinion no longer carries any weight.

CBS’ Face the Nation: Jack Lew, White House Chief of Staff; Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX); Sen. Mitch McConell (R-KY)

Don’t that sound like a lollapalooza! /sarc

If I remember correctly, Romney has more total votes than any of the other candidates.

It only shows up for threads with Palin’s picture on it. Same mindless bullsh!t every time.

she was on fire last night…

cmsinaz on February 12, 2012 at 8:25 AM

Yep. As Nick pointed out, just like the Chevy Volt.

NickDeringer on February 12, 2012 at 8:14 AM

And how much is every other keynote speaker at CPAC paid? Why is it such a crime for Palin to have a job?

I wonder if anyone will ask Jack Lew about his $900,000 bonus from Citigroup in 2009? And how much income tax he paid on it?

rockmom on February 12, 2012 at 9:01 AM

If she was the great conservative American who should be queen that some of you make her to be she would have run for the nomination

Bradky on February 12, 2012 at 8:56 AM

There are many good conservatives who did not run for the nomination. In fact it seems all the best conservatives did not run for the nomination and we are left with four chuckleheads to choose from.

alwaysfiredup on February 12, 2012 at 9:01 AM

Bradky on February 12, 2012 at 8:56 AM

Are you seriously using that argument? Jeebus, and Romney doesn’t pay his supporters to vote for him in straw polls? So I guess by your standards, Romney isn’t a real conservative, let alone a “severely conservative” candidate. Thanks for clearing all that up for us. OMG. lolololololol

…explain how The One’s new budget will avert America’s fiscal catastrophe by squeezing a few more bucks out of the very rich.

Budget!! What’s a budget??

You’re trying too hard. It’s your tell.

It’s February, dude. Isn’t it time to let go of the juvenile hater crap and start to talk seriously about strengths and weaknesses, or is that outside of your skill set?

Then the country must not be nearly as bad off as they say in their paid speeches across the country.
Lack of courage to try to run for the nomination shows that they are not as conservative as you give them credit for — opportunistic and wildly successful in speaking fees? you betcha!
Conservative icons? hardly

Bradky on February 12, 2012 at 9:07 AM

I still find it amazing that whenever the conversation turns to SP, all the trolls come out and really pile on the vitriol. She must still worry them even tho she is just a citizen like the rest of us and not a candidate for office anywhere. Kinda like a lone wolf sitting on a snowy hillside watching every move they make. They know she’s out there, but don’t know when she’s going to attack.

So far, perhaps. But do you think he will amass enough to get over the line?
