Quotes of the day

posted at 10:56 pm on March 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Mitt Romney’s campaign gathered the national press corps in their campaign war room this morning to deliver a simple message: It would take an ‘act of God’ for any candidate not named Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination…

“Looking ahead to a primary calendar where the only remaining true winner-take-all states appear to favor Romney — Delaware, Utah, New Jersey and the District of Columbia (where Rick Santorum is not on the ballot) — the advisers tried to slowly close the door on Santorum and Newt Gingrich, who they said had little to no opportunity left to close the delegate gap…

“Taken together, the campaign hopes math, if not ideology, will help their candidate consolidate a Republican base still resistant to his nomination in some quarters.”

***

“If Romney were to stumble and win only a third of the delegates in the remaining states, Santorum would have to win more than half of all the delegates in order to pull ahead, meaning that Gingrich and Paul together would have to be held below 16 percent. To date, not even counting Romney’s blowout in Massachusetts, Romney has won nearly half of the delegates while Santorum has won about one-fourth. That means the only path to Romney losing requires Santorum to double his past haul, while Romney drops by about 70 percent. That’s not likely.

“Barring some disaster, Romney’s worst-case scenario is that he finishes first, but a bit short of the 1,144-delegate absolute majority, thus needing to pick up a handful of Santorum, Paul or Gingrich delegates. That would not be a pretty way to win, but it would be a win.”

***

“Consider this: if Mitt wins every remaining all-or-nothing state but one, and half of the remaining proportional delegates, he would likely still fall short of the magic nomination number of 1,144—which would force him to rely on unpledged delegates, the Republican version of the infamous Democratic super-delegates in 2008, to claim his party’s mantle…

“[T]he delegate math shows that the earliest this contest could be over is May — and the latest, Utah in late June or even August in Tampa.

“Unless Santorum, Gingrich, or Paul can be prematurely pressured out, this contest will go on. Momentum drives the story line, but math drives the delegate count, and that may be all that matters in this year’s proportional fight for the Republican nomination.”

***

“Mitt Romney’s five-year-long hostile takeover bid for the Republican Party — and the presidency — enters its next grinding phase Wednesday with a spin session for reporters in Boston designed to convince them that his nomination is inevitable…

“If he doesn’t complete the LBO by June, Romney will appeal to what’s left of the party establishment to help him. He can cut deals in lots of directions, a process similar to bringing other investors into a difficult transaction that takes more cash than originally envisioned.

“Consider the calculations for one rival. It’s easier to see Gingrich doing a deal with Romney than with Santorum. What does Santorum have to offer, psychic and philosophical gratification? Mitt can offer Newt stock and a seat on the board.”

***

“‘I don’t see these guys getting out,’ admitted Kerry Healey, Romney’s former lieutenant governor, when asked what the obvious inflection point would be for the race to come to a close.

“‘We will turn slogging into an art form,’ cracked another adviser.

“‘Maybe May?’ ventured a senior Romney official about when the race may end.

“If Super Tuesday had produced a more convincing result, the hope among some in Romney’s orbit was to nail down the nomination by winning the Illinois primary later this month.

“That scenario seems unlikely now.”

***

“Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney ‘clearly’ had a triumphant night on Super Tuesday, but his six wins were ‘maybe not enough’ for someone who wants to win the presidency, GOP Sen. John McCain told ‘Face the Nation’ anchor Bob Schieffer on ‘Face to Face.’

“‘The longer this goes out, the worse our chances are,’ McCain said of the Republican primary. ‘I have to tell you, it makes me very worried about our chances to win in November.’”

***

“‘We’re never going to call on anybody to get out, but what we are calling is on Tea Party supporters and conservatives is to rally behind the only candidate that has demonstrated over and over again that he’s the one who can compete against Mitt Romney,’ [Santorum strategist John] Brabender said.

“‘The real key right now is, can we get an opportunity to get a one-on-one shot with Mitt Romney,’ he said. ‘What we found is, Gingrich did a nice job in his home state, but I don’t even think he had a second place anywhere else … It’s time for conservatives to say ‘Look, we’re going to rally behind one candidate, Rick Santorum.’”

***

“One thing I can tell you for sure, there’s not going to be a brokered convention, where some new person comes in and becomes the nominee. It’s going to be one of the four people that are still running.”

I also kinda like Ron Paul on the fiscal side of things. Its when he starts talking about foreign affairs and military matters that things go off the rails.

sharrukin on March 8, 2012 at 1:02 AM
There seem to be only two views about Ron Paul: the one you expressed and “he is the only hope for America, a true onstitutionalist who will save us from certain destruction!”. And of course everyone knows he is batsh*t crazy, but that’s no big deal these day.

Igor R. on March 8, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Dick Morris on Hannity said no way Obama gets a second term. My heart sank. Wish he’d shut up.

SilverDeth on March 8, 2012 at 1:09 AM

When it comes to techy things I am like a Jedi on Starwars. I have determined that HA has a glitch in one of its modules or a bug in one of its hardware circuit boards which runs either a router or computer or some other electrical thing.

Or it could be a wire or a typo in the code somewhere. Or else a virus or something like that which is messing up the works. Anyhow I am glad I was able to clear this up for you non-tech types.

SparkPlug on March 8, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Wow. That was really impressive. I’m glad it was left in such capable hands. Of course, I know nothing about such technical matters but I have a feeling that you’re right about it being “either a router or computer or some other electrical thing.” Thanks again.

That is something that bothers me. The idea that so many invest their hopes in a guy like Ron Paul when it is so obviously pointless. He isn’t what they believe and he isn’t capable of delivering what they want. Not healthy and a sign of the alienation of too many people from the political process.

I miss KeninCT too. Nah not really, I just like poking him with sharp sticks. I really hate to say this about anyone, but that dude is a total loser. I almost feel sorry for him.

Good night!

Night.

I think you’re homesick. How much longer til you get to go home?

cynccook on March 8, 2012 at 1:44 AM

I don’t know yet. I’m not as much homesick as I am tired.

Bmore on March 8, 2012 at 1:46 AM

Night Igor.

Bmore on March 8, 2012 at 1:47 AM

Where did he go? He was funny.

They just reflect the cluelessness of the electorate. I think that the days of a representative democracy in this country are dwindling. I suppose in our lifetimes we’ll see the rise of that one strongman (or woman) who will become the first dictator.

Silly! Go cuddle up next to Mrs. Bmore and go to sleep! I have to go too. I’ve got to start training for a race in May. :-(

LOL What’s in a Cubalibra?

Its basically rum and coke with lime. Last time she was craving beer, so I bought her those little tiny miller ponies, an 8 pack. Took her about a year to drink them. Matter of fact I think I had two of em. She’s 92 and starting to slip on me a bit. I have a feeling I may be in for a sad year.

I don’t know SparkPlug. I have been wanting to ask Ed or Allah if they banned him, just havn’t had a chance. Maybe he just quit. I hope he is okay.

I suspect you may be correct and that may include a national breakup or a sivil war. Who knows at this point. I don’t think we can reverse the socialist effect that has been enacted through the education system. Those people won’t suddenly become good citizens.

So was the Obama college video released? Does it tell us what we know or will it actually affect the election?

The Spelunker of the House is only interested in caving — in between tears — and Mr. Chao wants to go home for the Christmas break rather than stay and fight obamacare…

The lack of testicular fortitude has turned them into drones, not interested in “ideas” or the anything outside their normal routine. When someone, say a Cantor, trots out an idea to reform a gov’t program, the Boehners and McConnells do their best to assimulate the “trouble maker”. In effect turning the idea guy into a drone and those who think like him are cowered into behaving like drones as well.

The inability of a non group think person to make much headway doesn’t bode well for our Country…

Any one no who has had the hammer swing on them lately. How about that Dr.Telsla guy? Someone once told me he couldn’t get it because he had family in management.

Its like the Royalist French or Imperial Russian courts where courtiers granted access to the king and whisper campaigns and influence could freeze an upstart out of the circles of power. Its done a little differently in Washington DC but I imagine a Cardinal Richelieu would recognize most of the human factors involved.

It makes me feel kind of sick to think about it, but I’m thinking of running the Half Marathon in the Cleveland Marathon. I’ve done 10ks but never a half marathon before. I may die.
