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.”

angrymike on April 12, 2012 at 12:02 AM

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.

Steveangell on April 11, 2012 at 11:33 PM

This is a poll of “all adults” – nearly a third aren’t even registered to vote – with a D+11 sample. They still can’t drag Obama to popularity.

If you had a better candidate than Romney, the time to get him or her in the race was last summer. None of those who made it to January could have done better against Obama than he will.

They think they can outgun Conservatives. It is time for the Civil War!

…well before the open announced regs…you didn’t need a hall monitor. I would read you veterans all the time and watch you debate each other in a civil manner….crr6…ernesto…chudi….csobsession etc. were/are not the POS (pardon me)…that fill the threads now. You…all the Hawks, Dire, ,,,well you know who!…are all different but would have good points to make when a topic would have you poking each other with sticks…only to have you same folks bandaging up each other and joining together on another topic. These new ones just come in to stab and run. The only time you get to debate each other, is when I see some of you vets just going around their(troll dung) posts in the same thread, and continue your conversations. You didn’t used to have to cipher through the thread so much, to follow your conversations.

Yea, FOX says they know who it is.

That’s the last I’ve heard.

idesign on April 11, 2012 at 11:49 PM

GAWKER admits he’s found and fired,.. some low level tool that worked on O’Reilly’s show. And his great insider scoops seem to be about things like bathroom quality and Hannity’s tie selection..

I’m sure FOX was devastated at the news..

to make matters even more lame,.. the guy writes this about himself,,

I am a weasel, a traitor, a sell-out and every bad word you can throw at me… but as of today, I am free, and I am ready to tell my story,

Considering the average GAWKER reader has the IQ of a turnip.. why did they even bother?

Like Mr. Peterman said, the offending remark was made early, at 3:11 while Ed was on the radio, clean up happened at least an hour and many comments later. I don’t know if it is still possible but the comment was copied in a lot of other’s comments. I don’t know if Ed got them all. As for the headlines, I can barely keep it straight who gets banned so I probably wouldn’t notice that the comment there and not in the blog. Kind of weird though.

BECAUSE those comments were already posted by the time Ed came in and banned him. Ed only removed the 3:11 offending post, not all of his subsequent comments nor his 3:11 comment that was then copied and replied to by other posters…

BUT, we do end up with jewls in the rough like yourself, Bmore, Flora Duh, and others that make it all worth while…

So even though Ed banned him at 3:11 the comment at 3:45 and all the ones inbetween 3:11 and 3:45 were because Ed hadn’t banned him at 3:11?

Thank you..You did a better job of explaining it than I did..You gave more details!!..:)

Dire Straits on April 12, 2012 at 12:29 AM

I got it. Thanks guys. I wish we didn’t have to type everything. Speech would be so much easier. Thanks.

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:30 AM

This was said after the ban, yes?

WILL ANYONE ADVOCATE FOR THIS POS TO BE BANNED FOR RACE BAITING? If you don’t have any evidence that he’s a gang banger then this is NAKED RACISM.

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:24 AM

And your point? One more time.

The thread was started at about 3:00 pm. Ed was doing radio at the same time, for an hour which made it possible for ODS to continue posting.

Ed gets off the air, checks e-mails, see’s the complaints and whacked him, which would have been after 4:00.

JPeterman on April 12, 2012 at 12:30 AM

One more question. He is banned right? Do we know if like some of the others he still can post in the headlines?

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:31 AM

Wow! Thanks, I had the wrong impression. How would said gangsters return fire if someone tried to poison them with lead?

ExpressoBold on April 12, 2012 at 12:27 AM

You poison your opponent with lead first. Kind of like the St. Valentine’s massacre where the victims thought they were being rounded up by the police. Just because the gangsters couldn’t play nice they made it more difficult for the rest of us to acquire automatic weapons.

Go to 3:14 and read Mr. Peterman’s request for clarification. A long time ago Ed & AP asked us to email them instead of reposting the comment over and over again because they have to take them out individually.

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

Sarah Palin will be all over fox screaming bloody murder tomorrow over Rosen comments. Count on it.

3.5 million loss in salary..Like I said that is sad..:(

Dire Straits on April 12, 2012 at 12:32 AM

… and they usually sign up with different IP addresses.

In case they get banned (Imagine that!)…

Seven Percent Solution on April 12, 2012 at 12:27 AM

My word, who would ever think of such a thing? Very curious.

l Capone’s Vault..

Greatest debacle reality news ever suffered, was at Geraldo’s hands.. yet, he still has a job in front of a camera… why?

mark81150 on April 12, 2012 at 12:16 AM

I remember watching that. Felt like a jackass afterward, when it ended, but nowhere as big a jackass as Geraldo.

I will never understand folks who wait 2 + years just to be able to register at Hot Air..And then get banned inside of 3 months if they are lucky..:)

Dire Straits on April 11, 2012 at 11:54 PM

I think they were sent in by political operatives to shake this place, from where it was.
I came here finding a good number of people with thoughtful political analysis…of events and people in office…and it helps one from outside see things they don’t get from elsewhere.
Yes, I have MM and Medved, and Beck and Rush and Levin and Hamilton, and countless others…but, here… I have the people here too! I LEARN from them. It has not been the same…but it will get better once November rolls around. I learn more of a picture, from a lot of these people. I would like to pi$$ on some of the others for ruining this format for a while…but I think it is going to come back bigger and better…than, I can SMADASTFU!…and watch from the bleachers again! (Poking is fun though)

KOOLAID2 on April 12, 2012 at 12:33 AM

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

Yeah, I’ve been emailed about that before. Thats why I didn’t even want to bring the quoted ban over here. I’ve been told not to cross post like that. HeII I’m probably in trouble right now.

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:34 AM

One more question. He is banned right? Do we know if like some of the others he still can post in the headlines?

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:31 AM

lol. I’d bet Lorien’s left nut that he is all the way gone. Gitmo headlines is for a-hole or irritating behavior. Wishing violence or death is not what HA is seeking to promote. Fun wreckers.

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:32 AM

That is correct..He/she was banned for making the 3:11 post..:)

No more KOOLAID from him!

KOOLAID2 on April 12, 2012 at 12:36 AM

cozmo, come back and explain to me why you had to walk him to the door when he had been banned earlier?

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Ed had his radio show. It took time for him to catch up.

Schadenfreude on April 12, 2012 at 12:36 AM

arnold ziffel on April 12, 2012 at 12:34 AM

No arnold one of the ones in the headlines issued a death threat. I was there. So was MadCon.

Didn’t he get the talk show shortly thereafter? I thought that was a wonderful fate for the self-important investigative journalist…a stupid talk show.

Thanks Schadenfreude, the ban didn’t occur at 3:11.

Bmore on April 12, 2012 at 12:37 AM

The ban occurred later, when 0…..drom stopped posting. It’s just that Ed edited the banning-offense message and made no other mention. News were breaking and maybe his shift was over too.

Schadenfreude on April 12, 2012 at 12:41 AM

Ed had his radio show. It took time for him to catch up.

No wonder he was late, my watch is two days slow.

Cheshire Cat on April 12, 2012 at 12:41 AM

HeII, I’m glad he’s gone, he was a lying race baiter. When you’ve been called out as a racist your whole life you tend to hate lying race baiters. If you get my drift. Its why I stay off those threads. Nothing but trouble for a guy like me with a temper. All part of that anger management I’ve been working on.
