Quotes of the day

posted at 10:37 pm on March 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Gingrich no longer says he can capture the 1,144 delegates required to wrap up the Republican nomination. Instead, he now speaks frankly about a new plan: Keep Romney from getting to 1,144 by the end of the GOP primary season in June, and then start what Gingrich calls a ‘conversation’ about who should be the Republican nominee. That conversation, the plan goes, would lead to a brokered GOP convention at which Gingrich would emerge as the eventual nominee.

“‘Our goal first is to keep Romney well below 1,000,’ Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said an hour before Gingrich addressed a small crowd of disappointed supporters gathered at the Wynfrey Hotel. ‘It doesn’t have to be 1,000, or 1,050 — it has to be below 1,100.’ If Gingrich succeeds, Hammond continued, ‘This will be the first time in our party in modern politics that we’re going to go to the convention floor.’…

“But the Washington establishment, or more accurately the East Coast establishment, is about to declare Gingrich dead. After Tuesday’s primary, reporters from the Washington Post and New York Times were leaving the Gingrich campaign; it’s not clear how regularly the papers will cover Gingrich from now on. That’s a sign of establishment rejection that Gingrich would relish — he’s scored a lot of political points attacking the media — but the real worry is that the Gingrich campaign might slowly fade from press coverage. And then — far more ominously — those 175,000 donors might begin to lose their enthusiasm, along with their resolve to give again.”

***

“‘We’re actually helping because between us – Santorum and I – are stopping Romney,’ Gingrich said…

“If Gingrich drops out, he argues, two things will happen:

“1) His vote gets divided between Santorum and Romney. A larger percentage would go to Santorum, but at least some goes to Romney, allowing him to accumulate more delegates; and,

“2) Romney is then able to aim all of his considerable firepower at Santorum, destroying him with negative ads the way he twice destroyed Gingrich (in Iowa and Florida).”

***

“Newt Gingrich’s plan to keep Mitt Romney from winning the necessary delegates for the GOP nomination means the presidential contenders might have to form a deal in order to avoid a brokered convention, a leading Gingrich surrogate told The Hill.

“Former Sen. Bob Smith (R-N.H.) said an agreement between the candidates would be preferable to taking the fight to the convention floor in Tampa, Fla., this August.

“‘If the four candidates that are involved decide to somehow put delegates together to make somebody the nominee based on the delegates they’ve earned I don’t think I’d call that a backroom deal,’ he said. ‘A brokered convention [could] go against the wishes of all the voters and maybe pick someone who wasn’t even running. No one I know wants a brokered convention.’”

***

“He insisted in his election-night speech that he was going forward — ignoring that he’s lost every one of the last 30 contests except for Georgia, his home state.

“‘Newt’s been dead for awhile, but now we’ve got proof,’ cracked Murphy.

“In a sign that Gingrich is increasingly out of options, a senior adviser to his campaign began floating the idea of a fusion ticket between the two remaining Romney alternatives.

“‘Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum would make a powerful team against Barack Obama,’ wrote the adviser in an email.”

***

“As we can see, Romney won roughly the same share of the vote in all four states [SC, GA, AL, MS] – something within a very narrow band of 26 percent and 30 percent of the vote. The real shift last night came from Santorum surging at the expense of Newt Gingrich.

“We can also see this when we break it down into ideological groupings, above all ‘very conservative’ voters…

“Here we see a similar pattern – Mitt Romney holding in a very narrow band (between 18 percent and 24 percent) while Rick Santorum has surged by about 15 points at the expense of Newt Gingrich, who has declined by 15 points

“From a bigger picture, these results confirm what the RealClearPolitics average has been saying for about a month: Rick Santorum has eclipsed Newt Gingrich in the battle to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney.”

***

“Some have suggested that deep in his heart Gingrich fashions himself a modern Winston Churchill, called to lead his country at a critical moment in its history. But history — using Alabama and Mississippi as its surrogates — has spoken and it has declared that Newt is decidedly not Churchill and that he won’t be president. At least not President of the United States.

“As The Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis pointed out while calling for Gingrich to drop out, ‘if [Gingrich] truly believes Mitt Romney is a ‘Massachusetts moderate’ masquerading as a conservative, then he owes it to Republican voters to give former Sen. Rick Santorum a clean shot at wresting the nomination from him.’

“Tuesday night, Gingrich took the burn down the house strategy in refusing to get out. If he can’t win, he’ll torpedo Santorum’s chance of winning and intentionally or unintentionally give the nomination to his nemesis, Mitt Romney. Perhaps upon further reflection, he will put his ego aside and do the right thing by allowing the final two serious candidates standing to battle it out for the GOP nomination.”

***

“In a half-filled convention center ballroom in Rosemont, a Chicago suburb, a mix of supporters and the merely curious turned out to see the candidate speak, some holding ‘Don’t believe the liberal media!’ signs, a fixture of his rallies, which on this day could have been echoing his criticism of Mitt Romney’s anointment as the inevitable nominee…

“Mr. Gingrich envisions an outcome in which, almost by force of personality and will, he is acclaimed the nominee at a contested convention in August despite failing to win the popular vote in more than a couple of states…

“‘The problem with being a fighter is sometimes they don’t know when to quit,” said Mr. Campfield, a state senator who switched allegiance to Mr. Santorum before he won Tennessee on Super Tuesday. ‘You don’t realize it’s better to bow out gracefully.’”

These two made death threats. I don’t like death threats. Oh well I guess I don’t need to heed Allahs warning anymore since no one else is. I try to be a relatively good poster. I don’t curse much except for heII and HeIIfire and I spell them with I’s so its really not even cursing. Kinda. I just like the hunt. You know helping them find the blessing they desire. Don’t hate me for it, please.

Bmore on March 15, 2012 at 12:35 AM

Heh. Death threats from liberal crybabies behind a computer keyboard are of zero consequence. They’re of zero consequence in real life, for that matter.
Out here in real life, I am no persuader. Instead, I make them mad. Mad takes a lot of energy. Perhaps just enough energy to prevent them from getting to the polls.
But like I said before, I didn’t want them banned, but it’s Ed’s and Allah’s call, not mine.
And yes, I checked my e-mail. He was nice about it.

As for whether I care what you think, I do, but you like self-created drama and imagine things that are not there. Even the “Frankly” comments are about what some anonymous posters would think, not you.

Igor R. on March 15, 2012 at 12:46 AM

So how long have you been time traveling? Hmmm, is that even a legitimate question? Can you ask a time traveler how long they have been time traveling? Wouldn’t that be a rhetorical double negative paradox?

Yeah, the computers aren’t antique enough yet to fetch much in the way of a selling price, but as long as there’s room they make great memorabilia. Also fun to play with them on rare occasions. But I enjoy old electronics in general, esp since I grew up with it. Just give me a flipclock-radio and I’m happy.

Here. I will post Allah’s comment again with the pertinent stuff highlighted:

Let me add, as a PSA to everyone, that these endless squabbles in the comments requiring hall-monitor duty from Ed and me are becoming increasingly time-consuming and irritating. We’ve erred on the side of not banning people in the past but we may have reached the point where it’s time to send those packing who can’t stay on topic and can’t seem to avoid petty scraping with the same nemeses in every thread. I’m asking you now politely to knock it off with this nonsense and stick to political arguments. The more personal you get with each other, the more we’re going to have to start locking people out to solve the problem. We don’t have time to be hall monitors.

Allahpundit on March 13, 2012 at 12:27 PM

He’s asking now. He may not ask again. In fact, I’d bet on it.
But all the highlighted stuff describes me to a tee. Me more than the majority of you.
Needless to say, I won’t even post l4l’s twitter page or Kenin’s cruise directory ever again.

So please explain to me why Newt Gingrich splitting the Conservative vote would somehow benefit Sheldon Adelson? The federal investigation has been brought by Obama’s people. Wouldn’t it be helpful to Adelson to defeat Obama?

Always wondered why he wasn’t more famous!

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on March 15, 2012 at 1:04 AM

Well if his funding is cut off you won;t hear from him. One guy does the funding for Newt so it’s up to him.

lexhamfox on March 15, 2012 at 12:53 AM

The Super PAC money can’t be used for campaign expenses at all – it has to be completely independent of the campaign, including the ads it designs and runs. But Adelson is being quoted by friends as saying he’s written his last check to Newt (he does promise to help the eventual nominee against Obama, no matter who it is).

But Gingrich won’t need much to do what he plans now – campaign in LA, TX, CA, and NY, combining fundraising in the latter three. He’s using free media and picking up delegates without campaigning in some states like Oklahoma and Tennessee.

Besides, his original purpose wasn’t to compete, he figured he belonged in the bottom tier, and he does. He just wanted to spur book sales, speaking fees, and consulting jobs with the free publicity. Now he is hoping for a convention speech for more free advertising. There is no reason to drop out, unless his own people pressure him to.

Did AP write that on the QOTD? I don’t know about the personal squabbling but no one stays on topic on QOTD for long. I was hoping that Newt would move Gov. Romney to the right but I just don’t think that is possible.

My brother works for Duke Energy…no surprise that they have the info on floating the Catawba.

We actually have had a scare with one of the puppies but it looks like we might be okay. Too long and boring of a story. I’ll have to think about some metal. The rock star son has been working on a video with on of the bands he is in. The shot the band playing the song and then he got to get made up as a zombie. The make up was done by a professional, very very gross and they filmed in downtown Jacksonville. Very varied and funny reactions. When it is done I will link that.

LOL Sorry, I didn’t see this earlier. Anyway, I thought you had a more fleshed-out conspiracy theory for me! This is weird, btw. Look at the villain’s name (Eddie Izzard’s character). My son found this on Netflix, but it’s a maily kind and we never do that any more.

I honestly don’t think csdeven gives a flying flip about any of the candidates. It just likes to poke people in their eyes. That is why it is the only person at HotAir that I ignore. Don’t get me wrong I like to poke at people to but I’m not willing to use victimhood as a tactic.

Cindy Munford on March 15, 2012 at 1:24 AM

Funny story: While directing the filming an ad/commercial a while ago — all actors in makeup and costumes representing an “after the world’s been destroyed” environment, during a break, I asked one of the actors (while still in full makeup and costume) to walk outside the building with me onto an L.A. street, just to see what the public reactions might be.

So there we were, on a busy L.A. street, me with this guy (famous face at that) who looked as he was madeup to look, a survivor of an apocolypse complete with tattered clothing, awful “wounds” and a honest-to-goodness ‘ray gun’ in his arms…AND NO ONE SO MUCH AS BLINKED, the public all “just” walked around us, no one so much as did a double take, no one slowly driving by even looked twice…

Out of concern for me and the actor (he had this fantasy ‘gun’ cradled in his arms), I finally took him back indoors, but the non-plussed non-reactions by the public were startling, to say the least.

From L.A., zombies, apocalypse, rayguns, yeeeearrrghhh, no one so much as noticed any thing ‘odd’ about that.

Didn’t read 5 pages of posts yet… I will, but I think since Newt is a historian it’s fair to point out what fictional historical figure he resembles.

Captain Ahab from Moby Dick.

Why? Because he’s willing to sink his entire Crew (Political Party) Just to get revenge on the great-white-guy, that bit off his chance to be president. oh, and he doesn’t need a wooden leg, he has a Plastic wife.
