Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:00 am on March 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

Battle o’ the campaign narratives this morning on NBC and CBS. Santorum will hammer the point that Gingrich is hopeless if he can’t win in Alabama and Mississippi on Tuesday and that conservatives’ last chance to stop Romney is to unite behind the Sweater Vest. Newt will counter that that’s not true because, well, er, it just isn’t. So there. If you’re bored with the primaries, try “This Week” for the cameo by former McCain staffer/Palin critic Nicolle Wallace, who evidently emerges as the heroine of HBO’s “Game Change” movie. Go figure.

The full line-up via WaPo:

NBC’s Meet the Press: Rick Santorum; Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD); Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA): Rev. Al Sharpton, MSNBC; Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN); E.J. Dionne, Brookings Institution and Washington Post; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

ABC’s This Week: Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.); Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.); Jake Tapper, ABC; Austan Goolsbee, former Obama economic adviser; Mary Matalin, Republican strategist; former New York governor Eliot Spitzer; Nicolle Wallace, Republican strategist

CBS’s Face the Nation: Newt Gingrich; Robert Gibbs, Obama Campaign advisor; Norah O’Donnell, CBS News; John Dickerson, CBS News and Slate

Fox News Sunday: Newt Gingrich; Sen. John McCain (R-AZ); Dana Perino, former Bush White House Press Secretary; Liz Marlantes, Christian Science Monitor; Chip Saltsman, former Mike Huckabee campaign manager; Evan Bayh, ormer U.S. Senator (D-IN)

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Dan Balz, Washington Post; Stephen Moore, Wall Street Journal; Alice Rivlin, Brookings Institution; Dick Gephardt; Steve Forbes

Eh. Overall his scolding, puritanical bent is very problematic for him but I’m not going to make a big deal out of this hyperbolic comment about the “pursuit of happiness”. He could very easily say that “liberty” is not a synonym for “libertine” and do a better job of making his point (if that’s how he chooses to define himself as a candidate). One thing I can say in favor of your comment is you didn’t use the “bigot” word…

canopfor on March 11, 2012 at 10:21 AM

He’s playing the pity card and stirring up some populist stew. ‘Woe is me! I’m not a Wall Street guy whose friends are millionaires and billionaires!’ But the fact is that no matter what happens with his campaign, his “investment” in his campaign will pay off later in a higher income as he’ll command higher speaking fees, and so forth.

Santorum is really starting to get under my skin. I read this morning he’s calling Romney desperate for pointing out he collected more delegates over the weekend than Santorum. Desperate? We need a mature President in 2012, not another punk kid with an attitude.

jan3 on March 11, 2012 at 9:38 AM

He really said this? Jeez, that’s pretty lame. The NY Giants are also desperate for pointing out that they scored more point in the super bowl vs. my beloved/beleaguered Patriots.

Today’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll from Rasmussen:

For the third consecutive day, Mitt Romney leads President Obama by five [sic] points in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. It is still, however, too early to tell if these results reflect a lasting change in the race or are merely statistical noise. Today’s numbers show Romney at 48%, Obama at 42%. That matches the largest lead Romney has ever enjoyed over the president….

Romney’s support among Republican voters has moved up to 83%, just about matching the president’s 84% support among Democrats. However, only six percent (6%) of GOP voters would vote for Obama if Romney is the nominee. Twice as many Democrats (12%) would cross party lines to vote for Romney. The former governor of Massachusetts also has an eight-point advantage among unaffiliated voters.

If Rick Santorum is the Republican nominee, he is up by one point over the president, 45% to 44%. He receives 77% support from Republican voters and is up three among unaffiliateds.

GRITS

I donated to NEWT since the whole Georgetown crowd was terrified of him. This was while the polls were generally bad for all Dems. He had his past but knew the game and knew them.

They still think he would be tougher mano a mano than Governor Romney. But they see Mitt as I do as Eisenhower with a big, bad ruthless machine (and ruled by drive, expediency and strategy).

The parens are my opinion.

Why don’t people quit backing the non-Romneys and fall into line?

Perhaps because most do not give a gnat’s ass about the health of the Republican party. The goal is to have an elected official that will represent your interests. I remain unconvinced that RMoney will do so.
So the Party people would be well advised to drop the party unity meme and find a clue as to why so many do not want Mitt Romney anywhere near the presidency.

THANK YOU for sharing this. I had not seen this.

This is very good information for people to have when deciding who to vote for in the primary.

Romney would unite Republicans and attract many independents. I’m voting for Romney, no doubt about it.

I fear that Santorum would not only repel independents, but would repel a good number of Republicans, as well! Santorum, with his history of social extremism, would be a great help for democrats in rallying liberals and others. Liberals who might not be too jazzed about Obama at the moment would relish the opportunity to vote against someone like Santorum.

Santorum gave a masterful performance on MTP. He clearly exposed Romney as a liar, and made a good case for himself. His description of the close political relationship he has with his wife will surely appeal to women. For all the hatred against him, he is a master politician, who sometimes gets excited and “says too much”, but of the three running he is the least “controlled” and connects with people the best.

Romney, the strongest candidate to take on Obama, BY FAR, has this in the bag.

yes and once again the social cons -and now the tea party are shafted by the country clubs GOP who will destroy anyone who doesn’t wait for their RINO invatations

.
Romney the strongest? With all the Obamalite baggage he has?You are kidding,of course.

The first great debate:

Uh Obamacare is bad:
Your idea mitt-Oromneycare and a free mandate.

Uh the economy?
The Bush people didn’t finish the job and his out of work people need those checks we send them. Will you stop sending them?

Social issues: You’re immoral Obama
– didn’t you sign a gay pride day in Massachusetts
Mitt?

You kill kids for votes Obama;
You were pro-abortion till you decided to run for pres Mitt.

Uh Libya:
I thought politics stopped at the water’s edge – and I was just doing the job Bush failed to finish.

Uh Cars -the chevy volt thing;
Not everyone can afford a stable full of cadillacs Mitt

If I lose deliberatly Obama-can I be your VP this time?
Sorry Mitt, I already have one incompetent window dressing fool now.

From Mark Steyn – a brilliant conservative:

““… the Fluke story is a useful reminder that the distinction between fiscal and social conservatism is generally false.
As almost all those fashionable split-the-difference fiscally conservative/socially liberal governors from George Pataki to California’s pathetically terminated Terminator eventually discover, their social liberalism comes with a hell of a price tag. Ask the Greeks how easy it is for insolvent nations to wean the populace off unaffordable nanny-state lollipops: When even casual sex requires a state welfare program, you’re pretty much done for…”

Rational Thought on March 11, 2012 at 1:12 PM

Alabama and Mississippi aren’t “must win” states for Gingrich. When he got in, he had no idea of winning, rather just to pump up book sales, speaking fees, and consulting work. Now that his 15 minutes as Flava Udda Month are up, why drop out before the convention? He may even get a prime time speech – talk about free advertising!

They ARE “must win” states for Santorum. If he wins them both, he can marginalize Gingrich (who will still retain his hardcore supporters) and solidify his position as the viable alternative to Romney. But if Romney or Gingrich picks one of them off, or both, suddenly Santorum is the nutty guy in the sweater vest screaming about the apocalypse. He would no longer have any narrative or path to the nomination in reality.

The conservative bloggers who foolishly threw in with him will stick for a while, pretending he’s still viable, but it will just be their pathetic attempt to save face.

But in the end, only one number counts: 1,144 — the number of delegates a candidate needs to cinch the Republican nomination. And Romney’s campaign claimed victory for the night, collecting 39 delegates overall, to Santorum’s 33. In Wyoming, where some counties had held caucuses earlier in the week, Romney easily outpaced his rivals and won seven of the 12 delegates at stake. Santorum won three, Paul one. (One delegate went uncommitted.)

That will not be the strategy against Romney. Romney will be portrayed as a rich, dishonest, flipflopping political opportunist out of touch with America. He’ll be smeared as a vulture capitalist who doesn’t understand nor care about the lives of most of us.

This strategy always works against people whose primary claim to fame has been their success in business, as with Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina. That Bain Capital picture of Romney and the money will be everywhere.

So delegates count from today

Romney
Guam 9
Northern Marianas 9
Wyoming 7
Virgin Islands 7
Kansas 3
Total 36

Santorum

Kansas 33
Wyoming 3
Total 36

galtani on March 10, 2012 at 10:34 PM

Yep! Righteous Rick is running in place. There were five contests today, and Romney won four of them. Of course that is what happens when you have a national campaign structure in place.

For months now, sensible people have told Mitt that he has to Reach Out to the Conservative Base if he wants to win in November. There have been detailed analysis published that show that his CONTEMPT for the Conservative Base is DIRECTLY responsible for the “Lack of Enthusiasm” for the Republican Primaries.

The ONLY candidate who has shown MORE Contempt for Conservatives than McLame is Mitt!

It is obvious that Mitt has NO INTENTION of “Reaching Out” to the Conservative Base. In fact – the ONLY thing that Mitt has “reached out” to the Conservative Base – is his middle finger!

He has played footsie with Environmentalists – and Eco-Terrorists.
He has Touted Empathy for Obama – and his Marxist Agenda.

Mitt has made it CLEAR that he only intends to make his “middle finger treatment” of the Conservative Base LOUDER and LONGER from now on.

He is NOT Conservative in ANY way.
