Quotes of the day

posted at 10:45 pm on April 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

“Mitt Romney effectively assumed the helm of the Republican Party on Tuesday after five primary victories across the Northeast solidified his stature as the presidential nominee-in-waiting who is trying to unite conservatives and persuade independent voters that President Obama does not deserve a second term…

“The Romney campaign is aggressively looking into all aspects of the Obama administration, with a plan to present the president as a nice and likable but unsuited to solving the country’s economic challenges. Aides said they intended to keep the conversation focused on Mr. Obama’s record in the White House and not his personal biography.

“‘There is a pretty broad view that President Obama is a good family man and decent guy, but may be in over his head,’ said Mr. Gillespie, a former counselor to George W. Bush, who was brought into the Romney campaign this month. He said the argument against re-election would be built around the suggestion that Mr. Obama ‘has not displayed strong leadership, but failed leadership and weak leadership.’”

***

“The bad news for Obama four years later is that the first weeks of the general-election campaign have demonstrated that Mitt Romney and his top staff are not going to play by the same rules as the McCain campaign

“Many conservative bloggers and reporters believe that mainstream publications and networks ignore stories that make the president or his allies look bad. One of the few surefire ways to force the media to cover a story they would prefer to ignore is to have the Republican presidential candidate talk about it. In 2008, McCain’s refusal to do so was particularly hobbling, but the Romney campaign is, so far at least, proving more willing to highlight those controversial topics or ones best handled with a bit of laughter — and utilizing the later hours of the campaign news cycle to do it…

“The Romney campaign is approaching the coming weeks with a strategy of ‘bracketing’ — doing events before and after key Obama campaign stops, making Obama’s message for that event implausible, refuted, and silly by the time he delivers his remarks. Before an Obama stop, Romney will do interviews with local radio stations. Last week Romney went to Charlotte, N.C., to give a ‘pre-buttal’ to Obama’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in September. Romney was supposed to speak on a rooftop with a view of the convention site, the Bank of America football stadium; bad weather forced his team indoors, and Romney spoke with a the city skyline behind him.”

***

“On Romney’s speech Tuesday night, Santorum said he struck the right tone. ‘I think he painted a strong picture. It’s one that’s a clear contrast to what this president’s brought this country,’ he said. Despite having once been his opponent, Santorum said the goal is to defeat President Obama, and he would support that. ‘This is about making sure we have the right person in the presidency, in the House and the Senate,’ Santorum said. ‘I believe he’s the better — obviously I believed I was the better choice. But I’m not in the race anymore.’

“Morgan observed, ‘Unless I’m mishearing things, you just endorsed Mitt Romney’ — a charge Santorum jumped around, saying he’ll be meeting with Romney soon, and then we’ll see.”

***

“If Romney wins the election, it’s almost a sure bet that Republicans win control of both the House and the Senate. And that matters. Right now, the GOP’s agenda is the Ryan budget, and that’s entirely fiscal: It’s a premium support plan for Medicare, and tax cuts, and deep cuts to Medicaid, food stamps and other domestic programs. All that can be passed through budget reconciliation — which is to say, all that can be made immune to the filibuster.

“So if Romney wins and the Republicans take control, they could accomplish quite a lot on party-line votes, even if their majorities are slim, and Democrats are opposed. Indeed, Romney could end up being a fairly transformational president for conservatives so long as he’s paired with a Republican Congress.”

***

***

“Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth, after the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?

“Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?

“If the answer were ‘yes’ to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements…and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions. That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here and not now. It’s still about the economy …and we’re not stupid.

“People are hurting in America. And we know that something is wrong, terribly wrong with the direction of the country.”

There are all sorts of things that can cause false positives-but once you get one you’re banned from donating. That’s a shame-because I’ve got a rare blood type.

For all the criticism of Romney he’s the first Republican presidential candidate in decades to not be distracted by asinine social issues or allowing the Democrats to bait him into chasing those social distractions.

He focusing on the economy alone. Pitch perfect so far.

rickyricardo on April 25, 2012 at 12:06 AM

Which Republican presidential candidate were you thinking of?

Nixon resigned before Roe v. Wade.

Gerald Ford was pro-choice.
He lost.

Ronald Reagan was pro-life.
He won. Two terms. 49 state re-election landslide.

Great anecdote about the time Reagan become furious when his campaign manager told him he had to be pro-choice.

George H. W. Bush was pro-life in name only. He was actually pro-choice.
No second term for him.

Bob Dole wasn’t pro-life and was ready to compromise the party platform.
He lost.

George W. Bush was pro-life.
He won. Two terms.

John McCain was pro-life, but his loss had nothing to do with that.

Why are you objecting?

The QOTD used to be, quite often, the liveliest debate of the day for dozens of people, not strictly on topic but never page after page of chit-chat like now. Now it’s pointless to try to have a substantive conversation in the QOTD, and instead of dozens of people having a discussion, now it’s a handful of people chit-chatting.

So while you and a few other people may like to put your feet up and relax, by doing so, you are changing something that a greater number of people used to enjoy the way it was before.

Minnesoter isn’t the first to have complained about this, I’ve seen others in the past, and I’m not exactly a fan even though I’ve been tolerant. But I did not appreciate the way the usual creeps that have hijacked the QOTD were attacking Minnesoter for making a legitimate complaint.

The people who want to put their feet up are have not only ruined the QOTD, but they attack the people for saying they preferred it the way it was before.

It’s to the point now that I wouldn’t be surprised to see people claim Romney was the second gunman on the grassy knoll, pulled that foul ball away from Moises Alou and got the original Star Trek cancelled.

I’m not sure why, given that it was one of their popular songs, why it never did anything for me.

This is one of my favorites from the 80s.

I can understand that, but it would be like me wishing that my kids didn’t ever have to grow up, I would love to keep them at a certain age. This of course won’t happen, so I change with the times and look to the future for better days and what can be.

Cindy Munford on April 25, 2012

Cindy, earlier today on the CNN Lemon thread you talked about the TSA taking your husband’s p-38 away. lol, my first thought was why did he bring a gun to the airport? I then remembered the little can openers they gave us for C-rations. I cannot believe they would actually confiscate something like that. I bet more damage could be done with a ball point pen—lets not let common sense get in the way of “we control you”.

FR, you’re full of it. No one has stopped you — or anyone else — from posting a comment or having your comment responded to. You and I have had discussions these past few nights and the “chit chat” didn’t stop NOR hinder that from occurring…

Gohawgs on April 25, 2012 at 1:15 AM

I think I had read rumors of that. Was McCain concerned about riots? Or did he just not have the stomach for the fight? Probably the first was an excuse for the latter. That makes me ill.

He was a horrible candidate. I hope Romney is not afraid of riots.

JPeterman on April 25, 2012 at 1:15 AM

Minnesoter isn’t the first to have complained about this

FloatingRock on April 25, 2012 at 1:09 AM

Wait a minute, wait just one minute. There is a huge difference between what you are complaining about, in a civil manner, and that creep minnesoter who just comes in here to take a dump on everyone and insult. I respect your opinion, not his.

And I’ll also say that if you scroll back through tonight’s QOTD, there has been AMPLE talk of politics, politicians and policy. Some nights, not so much because it’s a slow news day and we’re tired of retreading the same talking points over and over.

I strive to stay on topic in every thread except QOTD, which is the closest thing we have to Ace’s Open Overnight Thread.

I sort of miss that show. I heard it was coming back onto MTV, but then never heard anything else. Probably because I never watch MTV anymore.

He might have tried, but if they didn’t go through w/Obama, Reid and Pelosi, then I doubt McCain would have been able to get them through.
