Quotes of the day

posted at 10:47 pm on April 18, 2012 by Allahpundit

“In a bid to win independents, President Obama’s campaign is ramping up efforts to label Mitt Romney a hardcore conservative

“The official described Romney as a conservative who wants to get rid of abortion and gay marriage and opposes the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to legal residency for children brought to the country as illegal immigrants. The official, mindful of Obama’s hope to win a large percentage of Hispanic voters, said Romney wants to deport all of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the country…

“‘No one forced Mitt Romney to wrap his arms around the Tea Party and take the most extreme position on immigration of any candidate in modern history, but that is the platform he has decided to embrace throughout the campaign,’ said Jen Psaki, a former Obama aide.”

***

“Great things can grow out of stupid stories. Fehrnstrom jacked into an emerging, jokey conservative meme. It even had a hashtag: #ObamaDogReceipes. ‘John McCain’s presidential campaign wouldn’t have touched this anecdote with a ten-foot pole,’ wrote the National Review’s Jim Geraghty. ‘Between this and the Romney camp’s rapid response to the Rosen comments, we are seeing a Republican presidential campaign that is exponentially faster on its feet and way more nimble than the previous general-election campaign against Obama.’

“That was the point. Republican voters, the choosey people who made Romney survive three months of primaries, believe that Barack Obama won too easily in 2008. The media and the McCain campaign failed to ‘vet’ him. I heard iterations of the theory when South Carolina Republicans blew their kingmaker record and chose Newt Gingrich over Romney. Gingrich, they told me, would ‘eviscerate’ and ‘lacerate’ Obama. McCain? Poor guy had his chance, and he wimped out…

“Michael Goldfarb applauds the Romney campaign’s punch-back abilities—but only up to a point. ‘They’ve been attacked on the dog thing to an insane level,’ he says. ‘They get an opportunity, and they hit back. But both this and the Rosen thing were totally reactive. This was a response to the Seamus story, that was a response to the ‘war on women.’ You don’t see them going after character and bio, which were the things McCain was accused of going soft on.’”

***

“Romney is going to be a lot tougher on Obama than was McCain in 2008. For all the complaints against his moderation by the tea-party base, they will slowly rally to him as he makes arguments against Obama of the sort that McCain was perceived as unable or unwilling to make. So far Romney’s attitude is that he is in the arena where blows come thick and fast, and one can’t whine when being hit or hitting — a view far preferable to McCain’s lectures about what not to say or do in 2008. Left-wing preemptory charges that Romney is ‘swift-boating’ or ‘going negative’ will probably have slight effect on him. Just as Bill Clinton saw that Dukakis in 1988 had wanted to be liked rather than feared and so himself ran a quite different, tough 1992 race, so too Romney knows where McCain’s magnanimity got him in 2008. Romney won’t be liked by the press, knows it, and perhaps now welcomes it.”

***

“The idea that Obama has brought us out of the light when he’s plunged us deeper into the sinkhole of debt, that somehow Obama has opened up Washington DC to make it as transparent and open as possible when they’ve done all of these deals and subverted the rule of law behind close doors. That somehow Obama is more likable than any Republican and somehow he’s a nice guy – I hate hearing this from Mitt Romney, he’s got to get this talking point out of his mouth. Barack Obama is not a nice guy. He has dealt brutally with the Right, with people like Paul Ryan and brave Republicans who have been calling him to the carpet on all of the disgust and culture of corruption that has reigned.”

We need to prove to the world that we as a nation of laws can solve our problems without assassinating half of our government. Two thirds of our government is corrupt to the point of being impossible to solve with the double and triple standards, circumventing the Constitution with Executive orders, and ignoring the laws that we the people are mandated to obey. The remaining one third of our government, The SCOTUS needs to step in and open the books on the frauds in the Executive Branch and Congress and install the Speaker of the House as President and completely erase all appointments and laws passed by this administration. If our Supreme Court refuses to act and Executive Orders install more fraudulent judges we are doomed as a free nation.

“Michael Goldfarb applauds the Romney campaign’s punch-back abilities—but only up to a point. ‘They’ve been attacked on the dog thing to an insane level,’ he says. ‘They get an opportunity, and they hit back. But both this and the Rosen thing were totally reactive. This was a response to the Seamus story, that was a response to the ‘war on women.’ You don’t see them going after character and bio, which were the things McCain was accused of going soft on.’”

I think the media plays up Romney’s response to Obama attacks because they hope the attacks will bring Romney down and they paint themselves into a corner by covering it. Romney scores points in spite of the media, not because of them. If Romney initiates an attack on Obama, they ignore, deflect, sidestep or just lie about it. That’s what I see as the basis for the “reactive” charge. Proactive just doesn’t get any play because it may hurt Duh Won and we can’t have that now, can we?

@michellemalkin

Dear @MittRomney: Stop distancing yourself from conservatives fighting anti-Romney narratives online like u did on Hannity tonite. Not cool.

@michellemalkin

Better response to conservative Twittersphere battling Hilary Rosen & Team Obama is “Thank you,” not “Ppl don’t care about Twitter fights.”

@michellemalkin

Like @Ben_Howe said: “Ignoring narratives doesn’t win elections. Destroying narratives does.”

@JonathanCapps8

@michellemalkin he never said anything like that! He was asked about the Seamus story and said the election would be decided on the economy.

@michellemalkin

@JonathanCapps8 He’s been distancing himself from the story all day. Why not just embrace the win and then pivot, instead of running away?

@kdubrn

@michellemalkin Awesome job on Hannity tonite!! You always seem to nail it Perfectly!!

@michellemalkin

It’s a privilege & a blast to fight on the right side of the Web. THANK YOU. Let’s do this again tmrw! #happywarriors

The reason those memes stuck was because that brilliant Steve Schmidt McCain campaign kept Palin under such wraps that there was nothing else to go on. It wouldn’t have made any difference at all if there had been a “Well Obama said this and did that…harharhar…” campaign to try to counter it.

The reason that meme stuck was because they added up to reveal an candidate who was woefully unprepared for the national stage.

She merely underscored the fact that you can see Russia from the Aleutian Islands is a pathetic attempt to pretend to have foreign policy chops).

AUDIO: Romney: Obama “Should Suck It Up” When It Comes To Golf

“I must admit, I scratch my head at the capacity of the president to take four hours off on such a regular basis to go golfing,” Mitt Romney said on Bill Cunningham’s radio program on WLW-AM.

“I would think you could kind of suck it up for four years particularly when the American people are out of work,” he added.

Your wasting your time with this Romney hater. He can’t allow Super Mitt to take the high road. He thinks calling obozo a Kenyan food stamper wins votes. He wants to ignore the high personal favorability ratings of the fraud in the WH- The aim of these anti-mitts is to encourage giving the msm enough ammo to fire away at Mitt and provide a distraction for their messiah to hide behind.
Let egoNewt sling the mud- let Mitt stay focused.

FlaMurph on April 19, 2012 at 8:28 AM

So nobody’s paying any attention to this story outside of the right-wing nuts on Twitter eh?

From the UK’s Telegraph:

Why did it take the mainstream media so long to discover that Barack Obama ate a dog?

…You can buy t-shirts with slogans like “Mutts Against Mitt” and “Dogs Against Romney.” Whether Mitt wins this election or not, he’ll always be known as The Guy with a Dog on the Roof of his Car. Within fifty years “Romneyphobia” will become the technical term for a fear of low tunnels.

The saga of Seamus is one of a number of negative stories that have bedeviled the candidate throughout the race – heavily promoted by the White House. It’s often been used by the mainstream media to confirm his “weirdo factor” and the impression that he just “doesn’t get ordinary people.” Hands up: I’ve used it many times myself. But on Tuesday an equally bizarre story broke that deserves just as much airtime – and I don’t know why it has taken so long to get some. For while Romney may have terrified a dog into soiling itself, Barack Obama has gone one step further. He’s actually eaten one…

Emphasis mine.

Yes, this is the number one issue facing America. Forget the Constitution and limited government, we need to know what people ate during their childhood.

Dante on April 19, 2012 at 8:58 AM

Two things that bother me about Romney at this point:

1.

“Michael Goldfarb applauds the Romney campaign’s punch-back abilities—but only up to a point. ‘They’ve been attacked on the dog thing to an insane level,’ he says. ‘They get an opportunity, and they hit back. But both this and the Rosen thing were totally reactive. This was a response to the Seamus story, that was a response to the ‘war on women.’ You don’t see them going after character and bio, which were the things McCain was accused of going soft on.’”

2.

I hate hearing this from Mitt Romney, he’s got to get this talking point out of his mouth. Barack Obama is not a nice guy. He has dealt brutally with the Right, with people like Paul Ryan and brave Republicans who have been calling him to the carpet on all of the disgust and culture of corruption that has reigned.”

I need to see Romney attacking Obama over Rev. Wright, Ayers, and for his radical upbringing. You know the LSM will be attacking Mitt over Mormonism which is a garbage tactic, so Romney better expose Obama for the radical he is.

And I’m going to blow a gasket if i hear Romney saying that Obama is a “nice guy”.

LevinFan on April 19, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Funny to hear the Romney quotes on Beck now:

Saying that being negative in the campaign is not going to work —– ummmm Mitt it seemed to work pretty well for you in the PRIMARY!!!

And thent the best part “I think the PResident is a NICE GUY”

gawdammitt Mitt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is exactly what I’m talking about!! You spineless wimp!!! Get a pair and call it like it is! Obama is a bad guy, a communist thug who’s destroying this country on purpose. You have more than enough evidence to prove it, wake up!!

Wow, you sounded like your hero just then.

Dante on April 19, 2012 at 9:24 AM

what’s your problem Dante?

Do you think Maobama is a nice guy???

LevinFan on April 19, 2012 at 9:28 AM

Yes, this is the number one issue facing America. Forget the Constitution and limited government, we need to know what people ate during their childhood.

Dante on April 19, 2012 at 8:58 AM

Oh get over yourself, will ya?

Yesterday I posted this from Breitbart.com

Romney: The Breitbart News Interview

Today they have this:

Romney Savages Obama over Economy

Yeah, Breitbart.com. One of the new media outlets who’s reporters have been been having the most fun with the dog story.

Believe it or not, there are some people who are capable of walking and chewing gum at the same time.

To wet-blanket righties who think dog jokes are “distraction,” we can have fun & hit hard at same time. My GSA column: http://t.co/LAPMJo9v

Fantastic piece

What Is the Conservative Movement

Dante on April 19, 2012 at 8:18 AM

LOL.
Oh my goodness.

Did anyone actually read this article that Dante linked? Its hilarious.

I mean, honestly, this writer can barely hold back his contempt for “fly-over country” conservatives. He doesn’t say as much, but the implications are clear. Anyone who is a fan of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Dennis Miller, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Michael Savage, G. Gordon Liddy, Oliver North, or Greg Gutfield (quite a wide swath!!) is clearly not a serious conservative, according to this guy.

Talk about ideological purity!!

I’m sorry, but this article honestly made me laugh. It was that ridiculous. ;-)

Now I see it another way, I see conservatives finally getting into the battle because stupid sh!t shouldn’t decide who will be elected as president. I think the Romney camp did a great job on stay at home mom front and I think the conservative media lead the way on the dog issue. Truly an improvement over last election.

Cindy Munford on April 19, 2012 at 10:26 AM

Romney can always fight back and say he is no conservative, citing his record as a liberal Massachusetts Governor responsible for increased spending, increased fees and taxess, pro-abortion rights positions, anti-job creation policies, appointment of Democrats to the state judiciary and RomneyCare, which is a socialized medicine at the state level and which has provided the blueprint for ObamaCare. Romney would be truthful to so argue.

Real conservatives are not fooled by Romney, but perhaps Obama can fool moderates and liberals.

Phil Byler on April 19, 2012 at 10:57 AM

To Cindy Munford re your 4/19 10:26 am post: Government spending, taxes, abortion, job creation, judicial appointments and health care are not stupid sh!t issues; and Romney’s record during his only term in public office on those issues is a liberal one. Romney may now talk the talk of a conservative, but he has never walked the walk.

Sorry, I wasn’t clear, I’m talking about the dog issue and the non existent war on women being stupid. As for Gov. Romney playing all sides of the issues, I am not thrilled. At best I am an “Anybody but Obama” voter this time around.

Cindy Munford on April 19, 2012 at 11:28 AM

To Cindy Mumford re your 4/19 11:28 AM post: OK. I understand fully. We do need to beat Obama.

Back in 2008, I worked for McCain because I saw Obama then as a radial socialist hiding who he really was (and is), I did not want the country to go through what it has and McCain had served his country in war and was a national security conservative and pro-life fiscal conservative. Election year 2008, however was a Democrat year, with the financial crisis, the Obama 7 to 1 money advantage, and the absurd media bias for Obama.

Election year 2012 should be a Republican year, but I am honestly concerned that Romney is not whom the Republicans should be nominating. For example, Romney can say that ObamaCare should go. But how persuasive will that be to the general electorate when Obama says accurately that the blueprint for ObamaCare was RomneyCare which you, Mitt, have never disavowed? For another example, Romney can say that we need to have an economy that produces more jobs and I know how to do that. But how persuasive will that be to the general electorate when Obama says sure, Mitt, that is why Massachusetts ranked 47th in the country in job growth when you were Governor.

I do support Newt still and will until Romney gets enough delegates to secure a first ballot nomination (which he has not done). To me, it is telling that while Newt was a “Young Turk” captain in the Reagan Revolution, then was the GOP House leader who led the Republicans for the first time in decades to a House majority with the Contract With America and then was Speaker forced Bill Clinton to balanced budgets and welfare reform, Romney voted for liberal Democrats Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale and Paul Tsongas and then refused to sign on to Newt’s Contract With America.

Phil Byler on April 19, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Phil Byler on April 19, 2012 at 12:07 PM

I was a supporter of Newt also, because he has a history of actually fighting against the Democrats and their policies. Unfortunately three marriages (with affairs) has rendered him unelectable in the eyes of too many. I don’t know what it will take to get the country to embrace something other than milquetoast and I’m not sure if I want live through it. Until then, I will enjoy such minor media victories as the dog and war on women push back. It’s the little things in life that get you through.

Cindy Munford on April 19, 2012 at 12:22 PM

Sad. I will be voting against obama rather than for Mittens our cookie cutter moderate GOP nominee.

Lanceman on April 18, 2012 at 11:12 PM

FIFY…but alas (sigh) it speaks for me also.

And the choir responds with a hearty….AMEN!

RedLizard64 on April 19, 2012 at 12:52 PM

Strike back twice as hard. If he continues to do that I won’t have to hold my nose to vote for him.

But make no mistake…I WILL vote for him. I’m with Breitbart on this one. ABO.
