Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on April 3, 2012 by Allahpundit

“That sound you hear? It’s the fat lady singing.

“For the umpteenth time in the Republican presidential primary race, Mitt Romney defeated Rick Santorum in a major Midwestern swing state — a win that effectively forecloses any chance that the former Massachusetts governor might not be the GOP nominee in the fall…

“‘Maybe it’s time to get going,’ Romney said in an interview with conservative talk show host Sean Hannity on Tuesday. ‘This is time for us to start focusing on [President Obama] rather than standing and focusing on one another in these primary contests.’”

***

“In a move that shows Republicans are coalescing around the party’s front-runner, Mitt Romney plans to begin raising money jointly with the Republican National Committee this week as both the candidate and the GOP brace for an expensive general-election fight against President Barack Obama.

“The arrangement will allow top donors to write checks as large as $75,000 per person, by giving to party organizations in addition to the campaign. That’s far more than the $2,500 ceiling that applies to individual donations to a presidential candidate for the fall election.

“The move reflects a general clamor within the party to begin amassing the funds needed to compete with Mr. Obama’s fundraising operation, Romney and RNC advisers said. “Our donors are ready to mobilize for November,” said Andrea Saul, a Romney spokesperson. For the Republican nominee to be able to compete with the president’s re-election effort, ‘they need to get started now.’”

***

“Senior Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod mocked GOP front-runner Mitt Romney’s economic policies on Tuesday, saying his ideas were from a ‘time warp.’

“‘He must watch ‘Mad Men’ and think it’s the evening news,’ said Axelrod on ‘CBS This Morning,’ referring to the popular drama set in the 1960s.

“Axelrod accused Romney of being ‘oblivious to the experiences of everyday people.’”

***

“Aides continue to debate whether they should seize even tighter control of the former Massachusetts governor or yield to the push by some advisers to ‘let Romney be Romney’ — but they have yet to crack the code. ‘They haven’t been able to grapple with the central issue and central challenge they face as a campaign,’ one Romney adviser lamented. ‘In the absence of a candidate who has any poetry — who has any ability to connect on an emotional level — how do you create a bond?’…

“The operative said the campaign had become overprotective of Romney. ‘It’s part of the ‘We’ve got to keep him locked in a box’ thing. You know, at a certain point, the narrative feeds the narrative, right? So if you keep him locked in the box, then people say, ‘Well, that’s why they’ve got to keep him locked in the box,’ and it’s a giant mistake. He’s a really smart person. You can have a conversation with him, and he’s going to say some things that are going to make you cringe, but he’s going to say some things that sound pretty smart, and you’ve got to be able to take the risk.’”

***

“What’s interesting about Romney and his supporters is that, despite his conservative rhetoric, moderates and country club conservatives continue to support his candidacy.

“Think about it. Romney, who stresses his opposition to abortion, talks tough on immigration and rules out a tax increase even to help cut the deficit, continues to get the support of pragmatic conservatives who reject former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum’s ideological rigidity, thought Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) was too conservative and viewed Texas Gov. Rick Perry as a bomb thrower…

Romney’s great asset is that these voters figure he is merely pandering to evangelicals and the most conservative element of the GOP when he talks about cultural issues, immigration and taxes.

“The bottom line, of course, is that nobody — not his critics and not his allies — really believes Mitt Romney.”

***

“Mitt can’t fake it. He stinks at politicking. But then again, so did many others who would later succeed at governing. If Boston wants their candidate to humanize himself, maybe they should just let him admit that fact and stop trying to stuff himself into a suit that doesn’t fit…

“Mitt Romney should then just admit the sad truth. He’s stiff. He’s boring. He looks plain uncomfortable every time he tries to be cool. And despite what the love of his life may believe, he has never been the life of any party. But he may be the only leader on the national stage who has what it takes to fix an economy that’s deep in debt, bleeding jobs by the year and suffering through 30 years of decline.

“Now is not the time to tell jokes. Now is the time to lead. So Mitt Romney, lead. And leave the bad jokes to Jay Leno.”

***

“With his sweep of the Wisconsin and Maryland primaries, Mitt Romney has finally secured the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. That is no small feat, given the realities of the modern Republican Party.

“But he did so without sketching out any design of what a new social model might look like. Indeed, Mr. Romney seemed to stand aside from the most urgent political and policy question of our time — what comes next — and instead bored us to tears with reassurances that America would be great again if only we elected him to its highest office.

“The key to a Romney victory is not to defeat President Obama; that would be a byproduct. The key is to make the case that the Blue Social Model is truly dead, that a new model is urgently needed and to present the first rough draft of what the new model might look like. Points one and two are an open-and-shut case. Point three is much riskier, obviously, but will (over time and with repetition) sharpen the points of difference. Vote for Obama and surely sink. Vote for Romney and at least there’s hope.

“Mr. Romney will never run his campaign along these lines. He and his team will Etch A Sketch as they go; energy today, bomb Iran tomorrow, whatever gets them through the next news cycle.”

Naw, this place has just become a stuffy, tedious chat room. I’ve been a consistent READER of Hot Air from the very beginning. The comments section used to be fun reading — often downright hilarious. I think it turned out to be a bad idea to limit registration. The place has become stale and inbred.

Fwiw I don’t think Ed or Allah give two craps about what we post for the most part. However I think their new bosses aren’t as easygoing as Michelle was.

Kataklysmic on April 4, 2012 at 12:13 AM

Please don’t ban canopfor. I think I will cry if he gets banned.

Now I would like to point out that both Ed and Allah are super professionals whose talents for analysis are demonstrated here everyday. In fact I don’t know of any bloggers in our sphere that are as dedicated (Ok Malkin too). I am convinced they (Ed and Allah) will exercise sound judgement in clearing up any misunderstanding and our trusted patriot from Canada will be posting here well after I myself get canned for stupidity, should that unpleasant event ever happen. I hope not.

I’m a long time reader, and a green as grass noob, and I’m confused as Hell now about what’s acceptable, and what isn’t. People go off topic all the time, and I thought linking was ok, if only to make a joke, or show a source link. But now.. and I know sometimes I slip up and let my language get coarser than it should be,.. my excuse is being blue collar,.. many if not most of us speak like that..

Now I’m wondering if I’ve annoyed the hosts at some point, I check my emails only occasionally.. I just delete most unread. Family and friends are kept to read, but I don’t remember seeing any from Hotair..

I do intend to clean up my language,.. but this episode leaves me confused more than anything.

Is it really that cold in MN that you don’t have much personality? No one is in charge, no one cares about newbies. I don’t drink much, I am not lonely.

Where do you come up with all of these songs?

Keep checking your email!

Everyone is still checking in here, right?

OH no it won’t! The left wingers will be posting non stop about the evils of that nasty capitalist Romney! They’ll be electronically burning him in effegy and huffpo links (or whatever will be current) will reign discussions.

Elections are a win win to any media if it’s played correctly.

Wolfmoon on April 4, 2012 at 12:23 AM

Yes, they will make the amazing transformation from the Web’s worst concern-trolling mobys (“gee I dunno guys, Willard is awfully progressive and stuff”) to beret-clad revolutionaries, vowing to take down the Von Mises-bred Romneynaut Empire.

Hah, no, I kid. They have no idea who Mises was. They’ll just call him Hitler, like they always do.

Dirt McGirt on April 4, 2012 at 12:31 AM

He’s a She…

Just like the Canadian Miss Universe thing…

Electrongod on April 4, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Ack! My bad. Hard to tell gender from a moniker like that.

Wolfmoon on April 4, 2012 at 12:31 AM

Is it really that cold in MN that you don’t have much personality? No one is in charge, no one cares about newbies. I don’t drink much, I am not lonely. I look forward to being on a forum with basically like minded individuals. You don’t seem to be a lib, we have tried to engage you but if you don’t want to horse around at night or any time maybe the sourpuss.org forum is a better fit.

Naw, this place has just become a stuffy, tedious chat room. I’ve been a consistent READER of Hot Air from the very beginning. The comments section used to be fun reading — often downright hilarious. I think it turned out to be a bad idea to limit registration. The place has become stale and inbred.

minnesoter on April 4, 2012 at 12:13 AM

I seem to have missed all your edgy, on topic comments. Could you re post them? Leave out the whiney ones.

Pretty soon we will feel special when he comes back to talk with us, like Jim Treacher.

Cindy Munford on April 4, 2012 at 12:32 AM

What.

jaime on April 4, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Well, about your drinking problem, of course. Look, I minored in Psych for a semester, I know what I’m doing.

But the rest of your description….

I concur.. :)

Obama on the other hand is intimately familiar with the pain experienced by ordinary people. And why wouldn’t he be? He’s caused most of it. (c)
Basilsbest on April 4, 2012 at 12:20 AM

Thanks for reminding me of why I liked you so much in the old days.

LegendHasIt on April 4, 2012 at 12:34 AM

Kind of creepy but I liked it!

cynccook on April 4, 2012 at 12:28 AM

Creepy is my first name. I spell it “CREEPIE”. Creepie Jaime.

This one’s for Allah, if he ever thinks he can ban me.

Not a fan of drama, comedy is so much better.

Well you were probably suffering from post traumatic stress disorder which explains your gluttonous behavior in the face of this Linsanity.

I know you will somehow make it thru this thing bro.

SparkPlug on April 4, 2012 at 12:36 AM

I wonder that you even bother to come here anymore at all.

cynccook on April 4, 2012 at 12:16 AM

Yeah, you make a good point.

Lord I hope not..:)

I forgot how much I love that song!!! :-D How about this one?

I’m off for a little while…

The bit about “government centered society” encapsulates Obama’s idiocy perfectly. Solid speech. Let Mitt be Mitt.

katy the mean old lady on April 4, 2012 at 12:32 AM

minnesoter likes to use Hot Air as his emotional toilet. Tedious, and no sense of humor.

Kataklysmic on April 4, 2012 at 12:36 AM

Now if you love canopfor the least you could do is to chain yourself to Allah’s front gate and demand that he be freed. I know he is already free but a little drama does a soul good. hehe.

SparkPlug on April 4, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Or we could kidnap a kitted and demand ransom and reparations. Canopfor could pay his internet bill.

katy the mean old lady on April 4, 2012 at 12:36 AM

I asked Allah about QOTD. I will interpret his silence as consent! :-)

cynccook on April 4, 2012 at 12:17 AM

I guarantee you that he is reading, laughing and checking out the music links. If Michell M liked him that says it all.
