Quotes of the day

posted at 10:44 pm on April 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Rick Santorum’s decision Tuesday to suspend his campaign effectively ends the GOP nomination fight. But it doesn’t mark the start of the general election between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. That contest has long been under way. Mr. Obama’s speech to the Associated Press last week and two appearances in Florida on Tuesday provide a glimpse of the low road the president and his campaign likely will take.

“He will distort beyond recognition his opponent’s arguments. For example, he explained to news executives at the AP that Republicans want to ‘convert more of our investments in education and research and health care into tax cuts—especially for the wealthy.’ Actually, no one has suggested that.

“No honest differences are possible with Mr. Obama. He will impugn the motives of any who disagree with him.”

***

“Now, in the face of mounting attacks from Democrats and the Obama campaign, Mr. Romney is taking steps to address [the] gender gap head on. In the past week, his campaign has devised a three-pronged strategy, which it finalized Tuesday night, advisers familiar with the internal discussions said. They will try to debunk the notion that Mr. Romney’s policies have hurt women, turn the criticism back on Mr. Obama and outline how they believe women have suffered under his administration, and brand those issues in a memorable way…

“As the Romney campaign pivots to the general election, his aides will reintroduce him to voters, warming up his image by emphasizing his role as a devoted father and husband. Mr. Romney’s wife, Ann, has already made several Web videos that feature her reminiscences, along with gauzy family photos; voters are likely to see more of these. Mrs. Romney will also increase her campaign appearances; she has already begun to talk about how women tell her that they care deeply about the economy, where the campaign wants to keep its focus. Polls showed that as the Republican primary campaign dragged on, Mr. Romney began losing support with women, who may have been put off by the nominating contest’s focus on social issues like Planned Parenthood, immigration and contraception.

“‘Women voters are pocketbook voters, and the highest casualties of President Obama’s failures on the economy have been among women,’ said Eric Fehrnstrom, a senior adviser to Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts.”

***

“Rick Santorum had been the last best hope of Christian conservatives who opposed Mitt Romney, derided by many as a ‘Massachusetts moderate.’ Now, facing the abrupt end of Mr. Santorum’s presidential bid, some evangelical leaders have begun to rally behind Mr. Romney, saying their shared hostility toward President Obama will be a powerful force for uniting the party in November…

“Mr. Romney, a range of evangelical leaders said, must not waver in his support for conservative principles if he hopes to tap the energies of Christian conservatives in the general campaign…

“‘Going to the general election, I will do everything I can for Governor Romney,’ [Gary Bauer] said.

“‘But his campaign has got to make it easy for me to help them,’ he added, ‘and not make it hard by being tempted to pull back on conservative issues.’”

***

“Some high-profile conservatives are warning Romney not to marginalize Santorum.

“‘If they want to be successful, they have to figure out a way to incorporate him into the campaign,’ said Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, noting that Santorum ‘could’ve held this thing out even longer.’…

“But even before Santorum left Gettysburg on Tuesday, some senior Republicans were fretting about the specter of Tampa being hijacked by one of the losing candidates and their supporters.

“‘We can’t let somebody who’s a better performer upstage Romney,’ said one influential party leader, recalling GOP conventions in 1976 (Ronald Reagan) and 1992 (Pat Buchanan) when the nominee’s message was stepped on by his chief primary opponent. ‘We can’t have another shrill speech like what Pat did in 1992 with our gender gap.’”

***

“Most political professionals, including many Republicans, think that President Obama will win reëlection handily — and this belief is reflected in the betting markets. At Ladbroke’s, the British bookmaker, the odds on an Obama victory are four-to-nine, which means you have to bet ninety dollars to win forty. These odds imply that the chance of Obama winning is about sixty-nine per cent. At Intrade, an online-trading exchange, the implied probability of an Obama victory is a bit lower, but only a bit: sixty-one per cent.

“Despite having been an early proponent of the view that things were shifting in Obama’s direction, I am reluctant to embrace the new conventional wisdom that the result is virtually a foregone conclusion. If the past few months have taught us anything, it is that things can change pretty rapidly in American politics. Unlike Walter Mondale in 1984 or Bob Dole in 1996, Romney isn’t a complete no-hoper. According to a new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post, three in four Americans still think that the economy is in recession, and, by a margin of four percentage points, voters trust Romney more than Obama to handle the economy.

“Clearly, though, there has been a turn. Back in October, Obama’s approval ratings were languishing in the low forties; head-to-head polls showed him lagging Romney in many battleground states, such as Florida; and the unemployment rate stood at 9.1 per cent. Since then, what a reversal of fortune we’ve seen.”

***

“Conservative primary voters are more discriminating than ever, looking seriously at the flaws of old heroes like Gingrich and new saviors like Rick Perry. They are more willing to keep the primary contest going than before. All they need is a candidate to lead them.

“What if that candidate, come 2016 or 2020, is a current rather than former elected official? Someone with no votes for Medicare Part D or No Child Left Behind in his record? Someone who has governed, without tax increases or TARP bailouts? The bench will not be as depleted from the Bush years next time.

“By winning 11 primaries and caucuses, Rick Santorum was the most successful conservative insurgent since Ronald Reagan in 1976. But that still isn’t good enough. The right is seeking to emulate Reagan in 1980 instead.”

***

“Guess what? His wife has never actually worked a day in her life. She’s never really dealt with the economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing—in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and how do—why we worry about their future. So I think it’s, yes, it’s about these positions, and yes there will be a war of words about the positions, but there’s something much more fundamental about Mitt Romney—he just seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women, and I think that comes across, and I think that’s going to hurt him over the long term. He just doesn’t really see us as equal.”

I am having a pretty good time thinking of our recently banned trolls…

… Out of habit, they can’t stay away and are reading these threads.

Oh, the screams, the gnashing of teeth, the banging on the keyboards, the tearing out of hair, the red faces, the spittle flying onto the monitors from chapped lips as their rage has no more outlet…

… It’s the little things in life that makes one cheer, don’t you think?

The bench was not depleted this time. There was a conservative superstar waiting but this guy and other Christian Conservatives could not stomach supporting a woman. It boggles the mind that they went with Santorum when a Palin was available.

Bishop on April 11, 2012 at 11:26 PM

I just want people on here who dont like Romney and want to stay home to understand something. We are battling truly radical leftism in our culture and in the White House. They do not like the American capitalist way of life, they don’t like our values, they don’t like the fact we say “Under God”, they want us to follow the UN not the Constitution. They HATE conservatives especially conservative women and we need everyone to help clean house. This is a serious election, they are going after our very way of life, how we eat, what cars we can drive, dividing us based on class and raise. They have to go.

nswider on April 11, 2012 at 11:26 PM

At Ladbroke’s, the British bookmaker, the odds on an Obama victory are four-to-nine, which means you have to bet ninety dollars to win forty.

Or you have to bet 9 to win 4. For the love of God, who writes this cr@p?

As for that moron saying Ann Romney — a woman with 5 kids — “never worked a day in her life.” Good representation of the sisterhood, toots. Stay-at-home moms work just as hard as a women who are in the traditional work force, or did you skip that lesson in your feminism 101 class?

As far as Romney not “seeming” to see women as equal — I wonder how much he pays his female staff? Because we know for a fact that Obama doesn’t see them as equal.

Dark Star on April 11, 2012 at 11:27 PM

Team Obama has had a social media advantage they used to help win the election in 08, Team Romney is matching them tweet for tweet. Its a good sign that they were immediately aggressive.

Real women wag their finger in your face telling you to eat healthier and then head off to their private dining room for a platter of butter-slathered lobster tails.

Bishop on April 11, 2012 at 10:56 PM

Oh, please shut up already. This is getting so pathetic. I’m so tired of hearing people whine about Michelle Obama’s campaign for healthier eating. It’s so utterly annoying. It’s much more annoying than her actual campaign. I mean, really. Anti-obesity? This is a controversial issue now? Give me a break. There are real reasons to dislike the Obama’s. Whining about how she’s trying to take your butter roll away isn’t a serious one.

If Laura Bush had campaigned against obesity and liberals had been screaming about the fascist right-wing attempts to control people, no one would have taken it seriously back then. Conservatives would have called it what it is.

Whining. Quit whining.

Wow are we ever doomed.

The economy stinks to high heaven.

But only 4% trust Romney more than Obama.

Since the economy seems to be improving at a snails pace come November that will be to Obama’s advantage.

Really how in Hades do we select such an unelectable man.

I don’t buy Axlerat’s “defense” of Anne Romney one bit. I remember when the attacks started on Palin, Obama was all “families should be off limits” while his minions in the MSM & on blogs kept escalating the attacks. That’s Obama’s M.O. — pretend that the campaign is taking the high ground condemning the attacks, while sending out their flunkies to keep the attacks up. The same thing is going on here, IMO.

By winning 11 primaries and caucuses, Rick Santorum was the most successful conservative insurgent since Ronald Reagan in 1976.

What do you say, Pennsylvania primary voters?
Can you win one for the Gipper and vote for Santorum in your PA primary?

How cool would it be for Santorum to win PA without even trying to?

And who’s to say that that couldn’t inspire him enough to “resume” his “suspended” camapaign?

Which one was that? I know l4l is gone, did one of the others get clipped as well?

AZfederalist on April 11, 2012 at 11:45 PM

Obamaderangementsyndrom or something like that.

JPeterman on April 11, 2012 at 11:47 PM

And who’s to say that that couldn’t inspire him enough to “resume” his “suspended” camapaign?
ITguy on April 11, 2012 at 11:43 PM

No, he’s out and is looking for some way to pay off his campaign debts. Likely by getting money from Romney. But even if that were not so, candidates who jump in and out & in again just don’t get much traction, they’re viewed as too flighty.

robertnyc212, this guy, never heard of him. Have now though.

Cindy Munford on April 11, 2012 at 11:45 PM

Yea, FOX says they know who it is.

That’s the last I’ve heard.

idesign on April 11, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Couldn’t even make it past page 1. Funny!

Bmore on April 11, 2012 at 11:35 PM

.
Yeah, but what he posted was really, really offensive and threatening (not like I was personally threatened, just it was highly anti-intellectual and not thoughtfully expressed, at all.)

ExpressoBold on April 11, 2012 at 11:51 PM

And lib4life—hows it hanging? We miss ya. Chill out, next registration is probably in August. I’ll give you suggested call signs by then. How about eau de fart or chenel number 10?

This comment didn’t sit well with Ed. He was doing his show at the time so it got to spasm for a few more pages before he got swept out.

They should come to your house and kill your entire family for preemptive self defense.

From page 1 of the Zimmerman thread.

Kelligan on April 11, 2012 at 11:51 PM

If he was banned, how come he got to keep running his mouth. Anyone check to see if he is in HALimboGitmo?

I’m thinking of a new ‘Drinking Game’ ladies and gents…

… here it goes.

When ever Obowma creates an new straw’man (woman) to deflect from his actual record of failure…

… we all fill a glass.

We currently have the ‘War on Women’, followed by the attack on the Supremes, then Paul Ryan’s budget is going to kill everyone, now we have race riots planned for the Summer, but Hillary’s attack on Ann Romney fell right out of the gate…

… Double shots if you call it before hand, all entries are welcome and stay in the pipeline.

Let the game begin…!

They suspended him with pay when they first confronted him and now that they are sure, he is fired. What a big dummy! He thought he couldn’t get a new job because he worked for FOX, it should be perfectly obvious that he was darned lucky that Fox kept him.

Cindy Munford on April 11, 2012 at 11:54 PM

This is why Ed should let Poptech back in, he was a good guy and always started his posts with “ROFLFOLOLFOLROFLOL”. Yeah a flaming leftist without a patriotic bone in his body, but still a good guy.

Two thoughts. They are libs, they can’t help it. They believe their nonsense or like to cause trouble. They also have no filter, something I have to watch carefully my own self.
