Quotes of the day

posted at 10:33 pm on April 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Mitt Romney’s electoral trouble with women — more precisely with college-educated women — is real enough. Recent polling has Romney trailing President Obama by 18 points among this group in Ohio, with similar gaps in other battleground states…

“In 2000, George W. Bush campaigned — in both the primaries and the general election — on increasing the quality of education for poor children, on humane immigration reform and on expanding care by faith-based organizations for the addicted and homeless. These issues were personally important to Bush. They also signaled to independents and women that he could think beyond normal ideological boundaries. This form of ‘compassionate conservatism’ is now broadly reviled among conservatives. The need for an analogous agenda, whatever it is called, remains unchanged. To secure a decent shot at this election, Romney will need to offer some positive vision for the common good…

“One of the best ways to appeal to women — and to humans, for that matter — is to show some humanity.”

***

“For all the analysis of Mitt Romney’s struggle to attract female voters, little has been made of the other gender gap — President Obama’s difficulty in attracting male voters

“There are historical trends to consider — women have favored Democrats and men Republicans for decades.

“In this particular race, dissatisfaction with Obama runs deeper among men when it comes to issues of the economy and the deficit — issues Romney has tried to make the centerpiece of his campaign platform…

“‘Men are hurting more in this workforce in unemployment than women are,’ said Brad Blakeman, past adviser to former President George W. Bush. ‘Men have left this president because they are unemployed.’”

***

“Anyway, all of the attention on the changing views of women in this age group during the past month might miss a much larger, more important development that has gone largely ignored. Both of Gallup’s national polls and Swing States surveys for USA Today confirm that during the past six months, the more dramatic change in presidential preference has been among men, not women.

“In October, Gallup’s national poll found that Obama led Romney by 14 points among women (54 percent to 40 percent). That margin shrunk only slightly, to 12 points, in March. But among men, Romney’s 16-point advantage in October shrunk to just 3 points in March…

“Clearly, Romney can’t win the White House if he is winning only 40 percent of female voters nationally or 36 percent of female voters from the 10 swing states. But it’s equally true that Romney can’t defeat Obama if the Republican carries men by only 3 points (as he does in Gallup’s most recent national poll) or by a single point (as he does in the most recent Swing States survey).

“Why have we heard so much about female voters and little or nothing about men? I’d guess that it is because the narrative has been set (about the Republican ‘war on women’), so journalists look for data and anecdotes that fit into it.”

***


***

“Meanwhile, she said, the other side of the equation is overlooked: The Democratic Party has a problem with getting a majority of the male vote.

“‘And secondly we talk about the gender gap, the Democrats have — they can’t get men to vote for them,’ she continued. ‘I mean, I assume because Obama won so big, he probably got a majority of the men’s votes, but I didn’t look that up. Other than him, Democrats haven’t gotten the majority of men to vote for them since 1944, other than the 1964 landslide.’”

I’ve been unbanned for awhile. One of the co-founders-now deceased-went through one day and banned all us chickies who were daring to disagree with him in the comments-then he banned the guys who came to our defense and THEN he sent out an e-mail to those that knew us and warned them that we were blog trolls. My husband got one of those e-mails. LoL

I think I know I mean a “Yes” but it’s all wrong
That is I think I disagree

No, 0bamaderangementsyndrom[sic] is definitely a different flavor of stupid than l4l. It’s a subtle thing, you have to spend an unhealthy amount of time reading very stupid things to detect the difference. l4l was stupid, but she could usually type out full words all by herself. She also knew how to spell her own name.

LOL Nice.

Even though I wasn’t able to post back then, as I was unworthy in the eyes of Ed and Allah, until the last registration. I think my favorite lib, when I viewed from the cold outside, was crr6. good times, good times. Since then the trolls have suffered from a severe lack of quality, almost like they were made in China.

I’ve asked sincere questions because I wanted to see how they would answer and ….nothing. About as stimulating as a conversation with this guy. Just ask my 3 year old. He keeps trying though. :-D

Sometime before the last registration period (it lasted several days, didn’t it?), AP said there were more than 85,000 registered commenters at HotAir. Don’t know how many were added the last time.

I think there are a boatload of trolls registered and waiting for the end of summer and into the autumn to descend on us en masse.

Right now, the focus is on the municipal elections which are in early May. The primary is @ the end of May and the senate race(Cruz v Dewhurst) is big in peoples minds. There’s this sense that Mitt will have the nomination locked up BEFORE TX. If it means anything-I have seen several Ronulan signs and a Santorum sign-but no Mitt signs.

AnninCA and getalife were the best trolls..IMHO..:)

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:19 AM

I didn’t get the impression that AnninCA was a troll. She seemed to me to be just a moderate, middle-of-the-road person whose opinions were held with some conviction but not much information. Sort of like someone who gets all of their information from ABC, CNN, and some hometown rag, sporadically, when they have nothing else to do.

Not a liberal, not a conservative, not a libertarian. Not very sophisticated about politics. I thought she was good-natured, though. She put up with a lot of acrimonious blowback.

jaime on April 10, 2012 at 12:28 AM

These new punks couldn’t hold his jock.

AnninCA and getalife were the best trolls..IMHO..:)

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:19 AM

Ann was more a liberal trying to fake being a moderate Republican and constantly blowing it.

getalife was pure unadulterated troll. He’d post crap like “Stock market’s up 12 points. Thank you, President Obama” and run off. It was so blatant it became funny. liberal4life was just an idiot.

O/T but who cares?

A man goes into the hospital for a vasectomy. Before the procedure a very attractive nurse comes in and takes his vitals, then tells him to take all of his clothes off. When he is fully undressed she instructs him to lie down on the table. The man obeys. The nurse then takes all of her clothes off and climbs on top and has her way with him.

Upon the completion of the act the man catches his breath and asks what that was all about. The nurse informs the patient that studies have shown that before a vasectomy if the man has an ejaculation, he will be more relaxed and that the vas deferens is easier for the surgeon to locate and sever, thereby making the surgery safer, more efficient, and quicker. The nurse then wheels the patient to the operating room. While they are going down the hall the patient looks through a window to the right and sees six men in a room masturbating. Curious, the man asks,” What are they doing in there”?

The nurse responds, “They are getting vasectomies too, but you have Blue Cross and they have Obama Care.”

The Wayne Gretzky of trolls. These new punks couldn’t hold his jock.

Chuck Schick on April 10, 2012 at 12:26 AM

Ugh I loved getalife

it was so stupid

and just kept coming back for more abuse

Congrats to you and hubby..:)

PS..Have you got cowboy boots yet?..:)

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:34 AM

Mostly TTech kids, or more widespread?

4Grace on April 10, 2012 at 12:29 AM

More widespread.
The Tea Party was taken over by Ronbots and ended up getting disbanded. Lots of Birchers here as well.
Considering that Lubbock has 2 or 3(small to the best of my knowledge. Could be wrong about the sizes) mosques-it’s fertile territory for the likes of Paul

drowningpuppies on April 10, 2012 at 12:33 AM

LOL I’ve never read any of your comments before. This — wow. 8-0

cynccook on April 10, 2012 at 12:35 AM

He was here tonight.

In the ghey thread of course.

JPeterman on April 10, 2012 at 12:08 AM

…But Dr. T seemed to have the correct blends of meds today!…When he runs out of one and the Rx is unbalanced, it goes right to his brain…and we should have a turn off switch….not a bad person when he’s all balanced out.

KOOLAID2 on April 10, 2012 at 12:35 AM

Chuck Schick on April 10, 2012 at 12:32 AM

crr6 actually made an effort. Was she banned or what?

bazil9 on April 10, 2012 at 12:31 AM

Is right. FR jumped the shark and became a Ronbot awhile back.
Ron Paul has been endorsed this cycle by David Duke and Don Black.
That is fact.

annoyinglittletwerp on April 10, 2012 at 12:36 AM

Is that what Don Black said?

annoyinglittletwerp on April 10, 2012 at 12:28 AM

I’ve never heard of Don Black so looked it up on Wiki and it appears he’s listed as a white nationalist. So you are accusing me of being a racist, you scumbag.

blatantblue on April 10, 2012 at 12:34 AM

Getalife made some kind of bet, promising if he lost he wouldn’t post at HA again.

When getalife returned, breaking his promise, Ed ushered him out of the door. I had tears rolling down my face I was laughing so hard.

JPeterman on April 10, 2012 at 12:37 AM

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:36 AM

I don’t know, either. That was just my impression.

jaime on April 10, 2012 at 12:37 AM

Not a liberal, not a conservative, not a libertarian. Not very sophisticated about politics. I thought she was good-natured, though. She put up with a lot of acrimonious blowback.

jaime on April 10, 2012 at 12:28 AM

Yeah. People used to really go after her — and terryannonline (who’s still here but not usually at night). It seemed a little over the top.

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:36 AM

Like I’ve said before: she was sort of like that older Aunt who was well-meaning but confused. She’d hear things on television and form an opinion but the details would be all mixed-up.

cynccook on April 10, 2012 at 12:39 AM

Dire Straits on April 10, 2012 at 12:34 AM

No-but I’m starting to ‘think’ in Lubbock-ese. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m sayin’ “y’all” more then ‘you guys’. I adore sweet tea and Dickey’s BBQ-but ‘pop’ is still ‘pop’ and I love my Cubbies.
