Quotes of the day

posted at 10:38 pm on April 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

“With Mitt Romney on a steady march to the Republican presidential nomination after a sweep of three primaries, both he and President Obama are seizing on the Republican House budget, and its ambitious young architect, Representative Paul D. Ryan, as a defining issue of the unfolding campaign

“For Mr. Obama, painting the conservative lawmaker as a sort of wild-eyed wingman to Mr. Romney carries clear benefits, according to his advisers: it yokes Mr. Romney to the unpopular elements of the Ryan budget — from deep cuts in cherished social programs to a Medicare overhaul that could drive up costs for future retirees and fundamentally change the popular health plan — and it makes it tougher for Mr. Romney to tack to the center once he gets past the primaries…

“‘Obama is trying to set this up to demonize the House Budget chairman,’ said Kevin Madden, an adviser to the Romney campaign. ‘Governor Romney is going to talk about his vision for the country and his ideas for entitlement reform and tackling spending and reducing deficits. He welcomes efforts by people like Paul Ryan to address it, because Obama hasn’t.’”

***

“If Romney’s win in Wisconsin strengthened his claim to the Republican presidential nomination, then his five straight days of campaigning with Ryan amounted to a tryout for the youthful congressman as a potential vice presidential running mate.

“Since Ryan endorsed Romney last Friday, he was at the candidate’s side at every turn — introducing him before formal speeches, vouching for him at town hall meetings and joining him as they eyed cherry pie, picked up fried cheese curds and handed out sub sandwiches. (Romney gave away turkey; Ryan, ham and cheese.)

“Along the way, Romney’s aides were sizing Ryan up. And although chief strategist Stuart Stevens waved off any talk of the two forming a national ticket as irresponsibly premature, he did say they got along well behind the scenes and noted their ‘chemistry’ on the stump.”

***

“Christian Ferry, a senior adviser to the previous Republican nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain, called Mr. Ryan ‘an intriguing possibility’ because he ‘is actually making substantive policy suggestions for urgent problems the country faces rather than worrying about the day-to-day politics.’…

“Ryan allies say Mr. Romney would be wise to pick the man who wrote his party’s main budget blueprint. ‘Why wouldn’t Romney put the guy with the most expertise on the ticket with him?’ said Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), who worked with Mr. Ryan on early versions of his budget and prodded him to run for president…

“Compatibility will be a crucial ingredient in Mr. Romney’s selection, according to people close to his campaign. Mr. Romney also trusts the 42-year-old congressman to field policy questions on his behalf—a rarity for the former governor who prides himself on his command of policy details. When Mr. Romney received a question on the convoluted tax code at a Wisconsin town hall, he turned to Mr. Ryan.”

***

“Let’s say the economy continues to recover. Let’s say Romney continues to trail Obama in the polls. Let’s say he realizes that he needs to change the underlying dynamics of the election if he’s to have a chance. In that case, conservatives may just get what they seem to really want: A risky campaign that tries to take on ‘the big issues,’ perhaps by bringing Paul Ryan onto the ticket and arguing that the only way to avert a debt crisis is root-and-branch reform of the federal government.

“Those campaigns don’t have a great track record. But they are, at the least, interesting, and if Romney chooses to run one alongside Ryan, conservatives will finally get their chance to persuade the country to radically reduce the size and responsibilities of the federal government. And, perhaps a bit paradoxically, the only candidate who can really give them that chance is a candidate like Romney in a year like this one: A candidate who could count on their allegiance wouldn’t need to pander to the base by swinging so far to the right, and a candidate who was clearly going to win would play it safer.”

***

“What was unveiled with Obama’s powerful speech is nothing less than a replay of Bill Clinton’s reelection argument in 1996. Back then, a colorless GOP leader named Bob Dole was successfully lashed to revolutionary Newt Gingrich’s budget, which Democrats argued would ravage Medicare, Medicaid, education and the environment. Dole was morphed into Gingrich at least 125,000 times in negative ads (according to Gingrich’s later tally for me), killing Dole with independents and sullying Gingrich’s brand forever…

“Can Romney extricate himself from being tied to Ryan as Dole was to Gingrich? This kind of Houdini-style escape may be beyond even the skills of as brazen a flip-flopper as Romney, though it will be fun to watch him try.

“After all, if the man who was for the health-care mandate before he was against it turns out also to have been for the Ryan budget before he was against that, he’ll alienate his base in an attempt to woo the middle. Meanwhile, Romney’s support for Ryan will run in endless loops in the president’s and his super PAC’s ads, along with a devastating catalog of all of Romney’s other switcheroos over the years.”

***

“President Obama is an intelligent, judicious man who can see all sides of an issue. But every once in a while he tries to get politically cute, and he puts on his Keith Olbermann mask…

“That’s pretty much what happened this week in Obama’s speech before a group of newspaper editors. Obama’s target in this speech was Representative Paul Ryan’s budget…

“Obama treated it as some sort of alien monster from the lunatic fringe. He made a series of specific accusations that have been easily swatted away by the Ryan defenders: That the Ryan plan would allow the insurance companies to cherry-pick the healthiest seniors (in fact, there are specific passages in the plan forbidding that); the Ryan plan would mean lower benefits for seniors (in fact, the plan would guarantee seniors the equivalent of current benefits while giving them other options).

“As I say, I have my own problems with Ryan’s plan, which Obama identified. But Ryan has at least taken a big step toward an eventual fiscal solution. He’s proposed necessary structural entitlement reforms, which the Democrats are unwilling to do. He’s proposed real tax reform, which the Democrats are also unwilling to do.”

***

“President Obama doubled down on tying Mitt Romney to Paul Ryan’s House Republican budget at a fundraiser Thursday.

“‘The budget was marvelous, he said,’ Obama said about Romney. ‘When you go through this budget, the vision is an American where everyone is fending for themselves, a few are doing well at the top and most people are struggling to get by.’”

Believe it or don’t. Back in the old days when the Vikings were rapin and pillagin, the residents of the country now known as Iceland thought “we don’t want none of that naughty stuff.” So they named their country Iceland and called the nearby country Greenland to fake out hose damn Vikings. So when they got to Greenland they said this ain’t so good and they sailed westward to North America. They didn’t last too long there either because America wasn’t supposed to be discovered until 1492. So the Vikings stayed away, and produced awesome womenz and music and skiers.

You are asking me to give Obama another chance in some improbable hope that a conservative party be formed quickly, and I cannot agree to that. Either we take a stand to salvage America or we embrace collapse; there is no third option. Any discussion about building new political parties is secondary.

youngTXcon on April 6, 2012 at 1:11 AM

We knew all along McCain would lose. We also know that Mitt will lose as he is even worst than McCain. At least McCain had some actual conservative credentials. All Mitt has is Conservative LIES. Not a single conservative accomplishment in his life. Furthermore Mitt made it clear that he hated all Republicans in 2002 when he hijacked our ticket in Mass to run to the left of the Democrat claiming he was the best Democrat on all the issues. He proved his Democratic credentials in his highly effective implementation of Democratic principals.

How can it possibly help the GOP to run a known Democrat as our nominee? LIES do not make a Republican ACTIONS do and Mitts actions spell D E M O C R A T.

Is that clear?

Awesome movie. Really liked it when I saw it—73 or 74? Have you seen “Middle age crazy”– also with Bruce Dern? I think that is the title. Ann Margaret played his wife. I have thought she was hot back when I was eight and she was probably 19. I guess I have been a bad man for a long time.

Yeah, Dern was one crazy dude– shot John Wayne in the back!– and he was perfect in that role. My wet dream (can we say that here?), probably before I was old enough to have them, was Raquel Welch, One Million Years B. C.

And as much as I hated her politics, you’re right, Baez’s voice was amazing.

I had a Beamer Bazil…sweet car. I switched to an Acura cause the stick shift was difficult. I also had a stingray t-top but my stupid younger bro crashed it into a tree :(

DHChron on April 6, 2012 at 1:54 AM

They don’t have stick anymore. I dig the Acura. Ha, just posted here the other day..with Cindy. Before I jumped the fence..dated a guy with a classic stingray. Nice.
Yep-young and dumb. Wrecked my mom’s classic VW super Beetle. :(

Now, now, we have to all try and get along. What you don’t like Opera? We have to try to accommodate folks as best we can. I mean really DHChron, you know to the outside world this looks like a real mess. LOL! It just shocks folks sometimes. I mean look at it. A bunch of square old Conservative cats swapping songs and carrying on at the wee hours. She loaded a tune. So there’s that. Maybe she’ll come round and see your point of view. At least give it a chance. What do ya say?

“President Obama is an intelligent, judicious man who can see all sides of an issue”

Whoever would say such an absurd thing must be on drugs. If they are not, they should be.

PS..The answer to your question is..:)

Dire Straits on April 6, 2012 at 1:52 AM

LOL! There’s a sort of private club for magicians in Los Angeles called The Magic Castle. Restaurant, rare book library, performance parlors… sort of proving ground for new magicians. And there’s a featured “performer”: Irma the Invisible Piano Player. Piano sits in one of the parlors, and you ask it– or the invisible “Irma” a question, and immediately you get the answer played back to you as a song. Irma never misses a beat.

“Irma, how old are you?” You’ll get “The Old Grey Mare” or something like that.

“Irma, why did Joan Baez start charging for concerts?” YOU, sir, should be “Irma.”

My favorite “Irma” response was given to a very southern cousin of mine, who, tiring of all the Gay 90s responses, said, “Irma, plaay some rawck.” And Irma immediately launched into the church hymn, “Rock of Ages.”

the VW bug was designed for Hitler. It was called the ppl’s car. That’s what VW means.

Ah, Mike is a buddy.

I don’t like Nazi without sark tags. My Grandfathers fought them and it is personal. I’m tired. No biggie. However, Germans make the best cars and beers (ducking) Typing here, you dont here tone or sarcasm.

xo Mike. checking DHC Chrons to set someone straight on GN.

Nite all.

Though I may disagree with some here I believe we are actually seeking the truth. I believe this to be good hearted debate.

Although I believe Mitt to be evil. Those that like him here may feel the opposite which is fine with me. I believe only GOD can truly judge anyone and see in their heart. We all sin every single one of us is evil in that way it is our nature. In my study of Mitts actions I feel evil such an evil it really does make me sick. But I would be the first to agree none are perfect. The last to say evil Mitt will go to hell. God will decide that only GOD.

I pray for this country and feel in my heart Mitt is the worst possible choice for this party. I am for Santorum but agree he has many problems and is also not very conservative. But I feel in his heart he is right with GOD. I do not feel that way about Mitt. I feel that Mitt is a deceiver and knowingly does wrong for sinister reasons I do not understand nor wish to understand.

But I could well be wrong. Satan can deceive even the most elect. I pray I am if he is the GOP nominee. But so far Mitt just feels like pure evil to me.

Obama is, in fact, a man who is very intellectually incurious and is about as set in his ways as any other ideologue nincompoop.
