Quotes of the day

posted at 9:01 pm on April 15, 2012 by Allahpundit

“‘It’s a ridiculous argument. Ridiculous. It’s been largely debunked this week by the people who have looked at it,’ said Geithner. ‘It’s a ridiculous way to look at the problem. And this is a political moment and you’re going to be seeing — just to borrow a line from Mario Cuomo — ‘you’re going to see a lot of politicians choose to campaign in fiction. But we have to govern in fact.”

“Geithner was responding to recent allegations by Romney that the Obama administration had waged a ‘war’ on women. Romney said earlier this week that the ‘real war on women has been waged by the policies of the Obama administration … did you know that of all the jobs lost during the Obama years, 92.3 percent of them are women. During the Obama years, women have suffered.’

“I asked Geithner about the technical accuracy of the Romney claim and he explained ‘this crisis was a very damaging crisis, hurt everybody. And it began in, as you know, in early 2008. And a lot of the early job losses in 2008 affected men, because they affected construction and manufacturing. And as the crisis spread and state and local governments were forced to cut back on services and fire a lot of teachers, that caused a lot of damage to women, too.’”

***

“Republican Sen. John McCain on Sunday said Mitt Romney will be able to bridge the gender gap in the next election given that women, as the candidate’s wife said, care most about the economy.

“‘I do believe that Ann Romney was right when she said the women she talks to and the women I talk to, traveling around my state, are interested in jobs and the economy,’ McCain, a Romney backer, said on CBS’ ‘Face the Nation.’ ‘There’s no doubt that a lot of women have been hurt very badly in this recession. And jobs and the economy is their number one priority.’”

***

“On Sunday, Bachmann defended Ann Romney and accused the Obama administration of neglecting women struggling in the recession.

“‘The one thing I know when women are home full time they probably have a better pulse on the economy than even their husbands have, because they are the ones who are directly impacted by the prices of groceries, by the price of gasoline, but the price of dealing with banking and all the other factors of running a home,’ she said.

“‘Ann Romney certainly understood the economy and I think women all across the country were highly insulted and they should be because women have borne the brunt of the failed economic policies under Barack Obama. Just as one example, they are paying $2,000 a year more for gasoline than they did the day Barack Obama came into office,’ Bachmann added.”

***

“Mr. Romney’s advantage lies in explaining to women why fat-boy government in general disproportionately hurts them, and how better policies are the path to genuine liberation…

“Mr. Romney might note the damage done to women by antiquated but still operative labor law, such as a provision in the 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act that requires hourly workers who put in more than 40 hours a week to get overtime. While some women like overtime, a 1990s poll found that 81% said they’d rather pack more hours into fewer days and receive compensatory time off. The phrase for this is ‘flex time,’ an invaluable option for many mothers attempting to juggle work and family. Not in this Democratic war…

Government creates myriad roadblocks for women’s economic progress, but Republicans largely have failed to make that case. They’ve instead let themselves be dragged into the tired debate over ‘equal pay’ and ‘women’s rights’ and ‘gender equality.’ Democrats love competing on these terms because it allows them to argue that the remedy always lies with more government, no matter the adverse consequences. It’s no accident that the first piece of legislation Mr. Obama signed was the Lilly Ledbetter Act. Purporting to snuff out wage discrimination, this is mostly a litigation bonanza for trial lawyers.

“Mr. Romney, and women, would be better off if the Republican brought this debate into the 21st century. What women need most in the economy we’ve got now is choice, opportunity and ownership. The Democrats want a war. Most women want a living.”

***

“Poor women who stay at home to raise their children should be given federal assistance for child care so that they can enter the job market and ‘have the dignity of work,’ Mitt Romney said in January, undercutting the sense of extreme umbrage he showed when Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen quipped last week that Ann Romney had not ‘worked a day in her life.’…

“On Sunday, Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg told The Huffington Post in an email, “Moving welfare recipients into work was one of the basic principles of the bipartisan welfare reform legislation that President Clinton signed into law. The sad fact is that under President Obama the poverty rate among women rose to 14.5 percent in 2011, the highest rate in 17 years. The Obama administration’s economic policies have been devastating to women and families.’

“Mitt Romney, however, judging by his January remark, views stay-at-home moms who are supported by federal assistance much differently than those backed by hundreds of millions in private equity income. Poor women, he said, shouldn’t be given a choice, but instead should be required to work outside the home to receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families benefits.”

“Maher, who gave a $1 million to the Super PAC aligned with President Obama, defended Hilary Rosen’s comments about Ann Romney on HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher,’ saying ‘what she (Rosen) meant to say, I think, was that Ann Romney has never gotten her a** out of the house to work.’

“ABC News’ Cokie Roberts added that Maher’s comments, like Rosen’s, hurt the Democratic image.

“‘The fact is, is that it plays into an image of the Democrats as this out of — out of touch with regular people and — and elitist and kind of snooty,’ said Roberts.”

Do Romney Statements Muddle Mommy Message?

MSNBC host accuses Romney of “double standard” after controversy over his wife’s status.

**************************

A clip from a campaign stop in January in which Mitt Romney says he wants poor stay-at-home moms to have federally-subsidized childcare so that they can “have the dignity of work” appears to muddle some of the campaign rhetoric used to defend Ann Romney as a non-working mother this week.

“Even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work,” Romney said in January of mothers on welfare. “I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.”(More…)

This is very off topic as it was written 2/2008, but the insight into the president and the women that have surrounded him is astonishing.

http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Front_Page/JB26Aa01.html

There is nothing mysterious about Obama’s methods. “A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is,” wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world’s biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis’ cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power’s portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech.

America has the great misfortune to have encountered Obama at the peak of his powers at its worst moment of vulnerability in a generation. With malice aforethought, he has sought out their sore point.

This will be the next line of attack and maybe Romney will be confronted directly with the question by an aggressive reporter. He should be ready with an answer. Starting our with “Moving welfare recipients into work was one of the basic principles of the bipartisan welfare reform legislation that President Clinton signed into law.” is not bad, but still needs to be expanded on to show compassion and understanding.

It seems the Romney camp perhaps realizes that McLame’s “nice guy” strategy was an epic fail. They’re not going to make the same mistake. Not that they’ll get personal, but they don’t have to. O’s record stinks on many levels, and comments by Rosen and Axeltard are playing right into their hands. Romney’s team seems to be pretty adept at the game to this point. Let’s hope it continues because he is going to be our guy.

Unless you haven’t been to the grocery store in the past few years, how could you not realize that prices are continually increasing? Working mom or SAH mom, it doesn’t matter. Wallets are apolitical, but stretch it too thin and the owners will vote against the person causing the pain.

DrStock on April 15, 2012 at 9:34 PM

I stand by my February 2008 profile of Obama as a sociopath dominated by strong women. Obama and his coven suffer from up-close-and-personal identification with the putatively oppressed peoples of the Third World. That goes far beyond the academic prejudices that liberal college students absorb from post-colonial theory. One has to live in the Third World, as Obama did during four of his formative years and Jarrett did in early childhood, to understand the rage and despair of the losers. Many times during visits to Third World countries, I sort of wished that I were a Communist. You see cruelty and indignity that shouldn’t be visited on a cockroach.

To round out the list, we have Leon Panetta at the Department of Defense, a political operator and accountant whose job is to cut the budget. Timothy Geithner? The Stan Laurel half of a duo with the departed Larry Summers. Tom Donilon as national security advisor? His biggest job was six years as chief lobbyist for bankrupt Fannie Mae.

This is just code for baby-mommas. If you want to know the difference between a single mom and a baby-momma, just go down to your local Walmart at 11pm. The single moms are the ones working BEHIND the registers; the baby-mommas are the ones with five kids in tow at the registers buying new earrings, candy, make-up, hats, and junk with our tax dollars.

I like Romney’s idea for breaking the baby-momma cycle. It is hard to find time to roll around with a new baby-daddy when you have to work for a living.

I’ll be the first to admit that Romney was my last choice to be our candidate. But he thus far is showing signs of being more of a fighter than I had ever imagined. I hope he doesn’t let me down. His team seems very on top of things and ready to fire back quickly. That is good. That is what it will take. The O camp has only one option–going negative. Romney camp apparently knows this and is gearing for it. Good.

predator, you in race town? Me I’m just trying to discern the meaning of the phrase “true con. Seems a fellow commenter by the name of crosspatch invented it and it is not properly copyrighted and already another fellow commenter has lifted it. Just checking to see if they are partners or adversary’s. ; )

Bmore on April 15, 2012 at 9:43 PM

I’ve seen the phrase “tru con” posted here by various people for years. It was a favorite of “getalife” who was banned quite a while ago.

Can you imagine the fights over Timmy in the joint? He’d feel more “wanted” than he ever was for tax evasion, that’s for sure. ;)

predator on April 15, 2012 at 10:26 PM

Liberals lie and distort reality so as to ease the pain in the fact that their ideology is barren, their beliefs flawed, and the depths of their souls as shallow as onion skin.

JPeterman on April 15, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Yes, I have started to make a connection to its use. Thank you. Mr. Peterman, if a fellow poster was to use that term directed at you. Insult?

Bmore on April 15, 2012 at 10:26 PM

Why are Democrats and Republicans wasting all of their time talking about stuff that doesn’t matter? Because if they talk about the crucial issues that affect our nation, they are both guilty and voters would throw all the bums out, both parties. So instead Democrats and Republicans talk about meaningless drivel that doesn’t affect our nation, only their own petty squabble between themselves.

They squabble between themselves about personal issues that don’t affect anybody but their own personal ambitions, their desire for more power and glory, and leave the country to rot. It’s just like the Bush Dynasty, only now it’s the Romney families turn. All hail King Obama or Romney, whichever dynasty takes over USSA.

Actually, I have to give the Democrats credit, they haven’t had a dynasty that I can think of since Kennedy, Republicans are worse in that regard.

NO MORE KINGS!

I thought a Lord was a part of the British Parliament. A member of the House of Lords? I could be wrong.

Anyone know for sure?

predator on April 15, 2012 at 10:29 PM

Liberals live in a self created fantasy world in which their ideas, once adopted, actually produce positive outcomes.

Our task to to wake them from their zombified sleep state.

Bernie Madoff is more trustworthy than most liberals and he can’t be trusted at all.

I would love to see a commercial hit the national airwaves within the next 6 weeks. Call it “Unrecognizable,” or something along those lines. Just pictures, sound bites, quotes from & about this administration.

Fast & Furious
EPA declarations that have halted domestic energy production
Executive Orders that bypass Congress
Race baiting
2700 pages of OCare disaster–and HOW it was passed
DOJ’s attacks on TX, AZ, etc.
Union thuggery in WI
Raiding Gibson Guitars
Blocking Boeing’s plant
PBHO bowing to our enemies
PHBO appeasing our enemies

OK, maybe it needs to be a looong commercial.

I read the first dozen or so. That is encouraging. The British populace is waking up. There may yet be hope.
