Quotes of the day

posted at 10:14 pm on March 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

“‘We want a conservative nominee because that’s our best chance of winning. Look at the races in the last 30 years, we nominated a moderate: [John] McCain, [Bob] Dole, Gerald Ford. When George [H.W.] Bush ran for re-election back in 1992, after raising taxes and increasing spending. They all ran as moderates. We all lost,’ Santorum said.

“‘Every time we’ve run as a conservative, we’ve won,’ the candidate continued. ‘Why? Because Americans want a choice. If it’s a difference between somebody, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, you know what, this country is going to probably going to stick with the person they know. We need to have a sharp contrast. Someone who paints a very different vision for America.’”

***

“‘I have the perfect candidate — Jeb Bush. But he’s not running,’ former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card told Charlie Rose on CBS on Wednesday, echoing the sentiments of many in his party.

“‘What Democrat would not worry about a popular leader from a critical state who sounds pretty moderate and can rescue the GOP from its anti-Latino death grip?’ asked former Bill Clinton press secretary Mike McCurry, who said he’s yet to find a Democratic elder who thinks the GOP is truly ‘unhinged’ enough to consider ditching Romney for Bush…

“‘Don’t buy the bulls—- about us not being worried about Jeb,’ added a veteran Democratic operative. ‘He’s a tough matchup even if his last name is Bush.’”

***

“But beyond being one of Poppy’s boys, the actual Jeb Bush would have another problem as a candidate. The party has marched inexorably to the right in a way that leaves him decidedly out of step

“When a Republican says he ‘used to be a conservative,’ he means he doesn’t much like the party’s rightward lurch. Are angry primary voters who have given Rick Santorum a series of victories (and a near-miss in Mitt Romney’s home state of Michigan) going to flock to a candidate who talks like that?

“Then there is Bush’s somewhat moderate approach to immigration. Jeb is fluent in Spanish and married to a Mexican-born woman; that would seem an ideal profile for a party that badly needs to attract Hispanics. But Jeb opposed Arizona’s harsh law cracking down on those here illegally and similar efforts in other states.”

***

“Let’s be honest, the marriage between the Republican Party and the tea party has always been a marriage of convenience — and an uncomfortable marriage of convenience at best. Unfortunately, this marriage is no longer working and it is time for both sides to move on. Call it irreconcilable differences…

“Moderate talking heads like David Brooks and David Frum, along with their ideological soul mates on the Hill, attacked the tea party as ‘radical’ and ridiculed tea party activists as politically naïve.

“Both the moderate and the conservative establishment types feared that the dirty, unwashed masses of the tea party might actually change how things are done in Washington — leaving them and their K Street buddies out of power and out of work…

“Now, unfortunately, the tea party is seen as just another Republican Party interest group. Another interest group to be used for fundraising and to turn out votes on Election Day, and then to be ignored when the politicians get back to doing the work of Washington.”

***

“‘We spend a lot of time talking about other countries, particularly the Middle East and places where there’s a lot of religious excessive demand,’ Mr. Kerry said. ‘But here in our own country, we have our own fundamentalists and we have our own excesses of demand today, and expectation with respect to towing the line.’…

“‘Why are we stuck? Why is this the way it is? Why does Olympia Snowe leave? Why are we gridlocked?’ he asked rhetorically. ‘Well, I’ll tell you in very simple terms; certain people in the leadership of the United States Congress have made a decision that their primary objective is not fixing the economy, it is defeating this president. And they have decided to do everything possible to gridlock everything in order that we all look bad and then people throw everybody out and they’ll come into power.’…

“‘It’s the most depressingly small minded, venal unpatriotic thing I’ve ever seen in my life,’ he said.”

***

“In a politically diverse nation, only by finding that common ground can we achieve results for the common good. That is not happening today and, frankly, I do not see it happening in the near future.

“For change to occur, our leaders must understand that there is not only strength in compromise, courage in conciliation and honor in consensus-building — but also a political reward for following these tenets. That reward will be real only if the people demonstrate their desire for politicians to come together after the planks in their respective party platforms do not prevail.

“I certainly don’t have all the answers, and reversing the corrosive trend of winner-take-all politics will take time. But as I enter a new chapter in my life, I see a critical need to engender public support for the political center, for our democracy to flourish and to find solutions that unite rather than divide us.

“I do not believe that, in the near term, the Senate can correct itself from within. It is by nature a political entity and, therefore, there must be a benefit to working across the aisle.”

***

“Among the biases of the mainstream political media, the most absurd is the adoration of the ‘moderate.’ When Maine’s Olympia Snowe, the most liberal Senate Republican, announced her retirement Tuesday, it sparked an avalanche of lamentation and praise of this ‘dying breed’ of moderate…

“New York Times columnist David Brooks blames the Tea Partiers and other grassroots conservatives (‘wingers,’ he calls them) for making the GOP “more and more insular, more and more rigid” and being too intolerant of compromise. Someone should show Brooks the GOP presidential field. The ever-changing policy views of front-runner Mitt Romney can be derided in many ways, but never as ‘rigid.’ Nor can the mercurial Newt Gingrich be pinned down as unbending…

“Moderates are as guilty as anyone of being intolerant when faced with conflicts within the GOP. Frum blasted as ‘Unpatriotic’ those conservatives who failed to support George W. Bush’s ill-considered invasion of Iraq, and urged all conservatives to “turn [their] backs” on these heretics. Brooks himself draws some pretty rigid boundaries of permissible dissent, excoriating as ‘nihilists’ those who opposed the unprecedented and unfair Troubled Asset Relief Program in 2008…

“Frum’s attempted purges, Specter’s naked self-preservation, and Tauzin’s and Bayh’s self-enrichment show moderates are no more tolerant or altruistic than the ‘wingers’ Brooks fears. Moderates in both parties may be a dying breed, but maybe not one worth saving.”

***

“In the real world, Republican members of Congress who scoffed at ideology spent decades cutting corrupt deals, buying votes with pork barrel spending, and expanding government to unsustainable levels while sweeping our nation’s long-term problems under the rug.

“Traditionally, Republicans would complain about big government while collaborating with Democrats to augment its size and scope. Yet last year, the House of Representatives passed the first serious plan to reform entitlements and balance the long-term budget, with all but four Republicans voting for Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal…

“If it were up to Obama and ‘responsible’ moderates, the debt ceiling would have been raised without much fanfare, like business as usual. But the Tea Party protesters forced the issue, and that’s the only reason Obama has budget savings to tout.

“Despite how the fairy tale goes, in reality the backslapping Republican moderates are the ones who helped bring this nation to the brink of financial ruin. And only bold and principled conservative leadership can save us.”

Santorum and Newt are the one’s we made fun of at the start of this slow-mo disaster and yet they are the best we have left.

I see no real point to a Romney candidacy. Why not stick with Obama for the last deathride?

MeatHeadinCA on March 3, 2012 at 1:02 AM

I want Newt and Mitt to weigh in. I think the more people *not political junkies* think about what’s going on here the more they will come to the right conclusion. This is all truly a fundamental change. This debate about BC pills couldn’t have happened 10 years ago and that was good. The idea of funding BC pills and store bought condoms to college kids from good homes all free of charge whenever they wanted its…

And Flukes testimony was unbelievable. Shame is not a useless emotion. We should feel a little bit of it at least. I feel embarrassed if I just meet someone and they start going on about their very personal details. I mean , she gave us the business about her self and a friend of hers. Some friend. Couldn’t she keep it in the abstract?

Well, I’m happy about this. Let’s get this stuff out in the open. I’m happy when leftists are leftists and they let it all hang out. They usually are lying about what they really believe.

Great, delusions of grandeur. No wonder effective compromise has become impossible. It may be hard for the self-righteous disciples to face “the real world”, but the budget was balanced only 10 years ago under Clinton and a moderate GOP House.

Question- how can legislation be “serious” when it has no chance of being passed into law? I suppose that it’s the same kind of serious you find in Newt’s plans for lunar conquest.

MeatHeadinCA on March 3, 2012 at 1:05 AM

A fluke meeting, I presume…

Do you think REM will get back together??..Some clasic music..:)

Dire Straits on March 3, 2012 at 1:41 AM

Those guys are so talented. The song “Man in the moon”–I think that’s the one, the guys are talking like Andy Kaufman did. Just a little thing but as a person listens they catch things like that. I have had music in my collection for years, listened often, and one day hear something different or realize the point they were trying to make.
Now REM is out there. Love them but generally don’t have a clue on what point they are trying to make.

And Jailbreak as well, unfortunately.

He won’t last if he doesn’t straighten up. He knows this. He is very afraid of being banned again. It will probably happen. I am laying off him for now.

Long Distance Voyager was their best IMO.

I don’t know. They are from down my way. Scuttlebutt is no. Of course you should never trust scuttlebutt. They are a good bit older. Maybe a reunion tour at some point? They say not, but so have many others.

This is good as well. Someone recommended this guy and he has some good ones. Carmelita by the Cowboy Junkies is another one I like.

sharrukin on March 3, 2012 at 2:00 AM

Long Distance Voyager was their best IMO.

sharrukin on March 3, 2012 at 1:55 AM

I would agree..Although I think this one was their best single release IMHO..Truly a classic..:)

Dire Straits on March 3, 2012 at 2:01 AM

Well guys, I’m back from my date with that Sandra chick from Georgetown. Ugh. She made me do it 5.7 times while she just laid there, and I went through 5.7 condoms. Talk about lousy. It’s like she had an agenda or something.

Jeb should focus more on his weight than politics

it looks he hasn’t missed a meal

Jeb and George Will, please shut up

A great single, but Days Of Future Passed was a consummate concept album that you can’t really extract one song from.

John the Libertarian on March 3, 2012 at 2:11 AM

I would agree..Although I think this one was their best single release IMHO..Truly a classic..:)
