Quotes of the day

posted at 10:33 pm on May 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

Whether or not your mom’s on Twitter, here’s something guaranteed to make her smile on Sunday: getting a personal shout-out from President Obama.

From now until Thursday at midnight, you have a chance to win that for your mom or a special mother in your life — just get five or more donations to your grassroots fundraising page to automatically put yourself in the running…

That’s right: If your name is drawn, the President will send your mom a special Mother’s Day tweet from @BarackObama.

***

Now, at the time the aforementioned articles were written, Obama was ahead by a little more than three points nationally. This would represent a 4-point swing toward Republicans, and our baseline would give the president a 303-235 win. Florida would flip into the GOP column. Montana would move out of the “close” category, and Colorado would move in. Romney would still have to thread an extremely narrow needle to get to 269 electoral votes under this scenario, but it would be possible. He would have to win all of the “close” states – a tremendous task.

But what about today? Recent polls have shown the race closing to a one-point Obama lead. Now Ohio joins the Republican coalition, and Romney is up to 253 electoral votes. North Carolina and Indiana are no longer close. And, critically, a number of states in the “big blue wall” are placed on the playing field as the margins in Pennsylvania and Minnesota, along with New Hampshire and Iowa, join the “less than five points” category. In other words, Romney now has multiple paths to victory (as does Obama)

What about if things break for Romney, and he is winning by four points as we approach Election Day? In that event, states like Pennsylvania and New Hampshire would fall into the GOP column, while Nevada, Wisconsin, New Mexico, and New Jersey are on his campaign’s radar screen. Colorado and Virginia are only on the outskirts of competitiveness for Team Obama. Under this scenario, it is Obama who has only one or two paths to victory, while Romney enjoys an embarrassment of riches.

***

Obama’s path is somewhat geographically narrow in that he probably needs to win three of the five big Eastern swing states: Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio and Florida.

But demographically, it’s ultra-narrow. Team Obama wants to hold down turnout for Romney in the ‘burbs and with blue-collar voters, while simultaneously squeezing out every vote from key Democratic groups: government worker unions, Hispanics, blacks, the poor, etc.

This is not a strategy for a broad victory, but a narrow one, won in Salvadoran neighborhoods in Northern Virginia, black precincts in Philadelphia and a dozen state-capital counties where AFSCME can drive turnout…

[I]f Romney succeeds in keeping the discussion on the anemic economy and record deficits, there’s no amount of money, technology or organization that can keep Obama in the White House.

***

The brand of the Obama reelection campaign, so far, is ruthlessness. It has accused Mitt Romney of being soft on Osama bin Laden. It has singled out some Romney donors by name for public attack. Romney, we are informed, enjoys shipping jobs abroad, which is “just what you’d expect from a guy who had a Swiss bank account.” Obama has accused Republican congressional opponents of social Darwinism and indifference to autistic children…

Obama’s political identity is particularly vulnerable to inconsistency on this issue. More than any recent presidential candidate, his initial appeal was based on changing the political atmosphere. He would end the “partisan food fight.” There are no red or blue states, he said, just the United States…

All of the atmospheric elements of politics — unity, bipartisanship and common purpose — are significantly worse than four years ago. This is not all Obama’s fault. But he is choosing — in a campaign so nasty, so early — to make it worse. At some point, ruthlessness just leaves ruins.

***

Yes, the president — who has a unified party, is the one who relates to voters so well, has loyal support among the swooning apologencia (new word) on the left, and is the bee’s knees to every modern pop-culture disciple. What is wrong? Why isn’t Obama cruising right now with a big lead over Romney? Answer: Romney is stronger than he has been portrayed and Obama is weaker than most people think. How else do you explain the current polls?

If Romney should be limping after the ugly primaries, burdened by the so-called clumsy Republican leadership and a backward GOP House majority, but isn’t, how strong will he be when he shakes off the mud from the primaries and has been alone in the spotlight for a few weeks? In politics it is an advantage to be underestimated. Conversely, it is not helpful to be overestimated. Maybe Romney’s problems are overstated and perhaps Obama’s are too eagerly minimized. Obama is the favorite and right now he should be dominating the race. He has every advantage. His problems with the economy are obvious, but he may have another problem that his supporters can’t bring themselves to admit, and that is a formidable Mitt Romney.

***

“The reality is that when Bill Clinton ran in ’92, he ran as a new Democrat,” said the aide, citing ticket’s campaign pledge to reform welfare. “That was the famous ad that they ran: Clinton and Gore were going to be different kinds of Democrats.”

He continued: “President Obama has really turned his back on all of that. He hasn’t run as a new Democrat, he’s run as an old Democrat… more spending, more taxation, more regulation.”

***

Newsflash: Nothing is in the bag. Nothing can be taken for granted. Everybody from the precinct door-knocker, to the Chicago high command, to the White House, to the halls of Congress, to the Senate and House committees, to congressional leadership, here is a simple message: If we don’t get on the offense, reconnect with the American people, talk about how the middle class is in a struggle for its very existence, hold the Republicans accountable and fight like the dickens, we are going to lose.

You can shoot five Bin Ladens, you can save 10,000 banks and 20 car companies, even pass the most sweeping legislation in modern American history; if people don’t think that you are connected to their lives and are fighting for their interests they will vote your tush out of office in a nano-second. For historical reference see Winston Churchill election of 1945 and President George H.W. Bush in 1992…

It has been said that, “Nothing so focuses a man’s attention as the prospect of being hanged.” Look around Democrats — Come November lets make sure that it’s Mitt and his bunch at the end of that figurative rope and not us.

I wonder how buying dinner with Obama or a Mother’s Day call from Obama is any different than, say, CEO of AEP making a political donation to Romney and then getting a visit to the White House.

The fact that Romney barely has a pulse is what will propelled him to victory, I cant see any way Obama is re-elected.. The meltdown will be glorious.

Spliff Menendez on May 8, 2012 at 10:50 PM

i take a dimmer view, which is that the polls saying that O is tied with Anyone tells me that the Transformation is much further along than i would like

Being tied with Obama at this point reminds me too much of Sarkozy and Hollande. France goes back and forth, from an avowed Socialist to the French version of a conservative

And when that conservative tries to change things (like after Sarkozy was elected) to improve labor restrictions, etc. there are massive marches, general strikes…and shrieking from every corner of the respectable press.

And that’s exactly what awaits Romney if elected. The shrieking of the press and the direct actions will be bad

And it will only be then that we know if we can recover

Here is a fantastic story that you will think about after you watch the two videos.

A WWII veteran and DDay hero who was 90 years old who was married for 65 years to his 85 year old wife. They were attacked and viciously beaten by a 20 year old who was found driving their car. She died two days after the attack, his children say he died of sadness about a week later.

Mark Levin is right – every American should know this story and who The Straits were and they should not be overlooked and forgotten.

What’s more, my mom likes Romney: she’s not “meh” about him, she actually likes Romney & has from the start. Of course, according to the polls, she’s the only person in this country that does.

Dark Star on May 8, 2012 at 10:58 PM

The sad part is the Al & the Dems don’t realize that these “children GOP” arguments against Romney aren’t any better/different than the Dems arguments against him. I swear I just heard “Have you heard what he did to his dog” and “He doesn’t share” (verbatim) from Dems just this week.

While it is true 0 has little more than apologist left in support of him. The die hard leftists and moochers. The rest of America has become very unimpressed.

I think this explains a lot AP.

Also it is my opinion that voters have made up their minds now. The most urgent action is getting out the vote. Speaking for myself, I’m voting for Romney and trying to make sure everyone of my friends and family do likewise. Our Country is at stake; no staying home this time.

I felt bad because I wasn’t here to cover the flank. Then I felt bad because I thought well maybe I had become the problem. Then I realized that was just silly. I had thought if the latter had been the case I would never come back. I continued to watch and knew that it was others that were trying to cause trouble and wished more then anything I could have been back here with you all to keep them corralled. Just like kittens a few of them here. ; )

1. Go to your local five and dime and buy a can of 3 in one oil.

And some gauze pads…and ball bearings, because everything runs on ball bearings these days.

I think it is just one of those things. As Summer comes along people try to pack more in their day, by evening they are to tired to do QOTD. I find that when I am tired I have trouble commenting, I feel incoherent. So I just lurk and get cheered up by everyone else. Mr. Rywall is cracking me up on the Lugar thread.

NO, 0bama is running as an old school collectivist. Won’t work this time as the hope and change has turned out to be misery and despair.

0bama wins Kalifornia, New York (narrow), Illinois (narrower), and WDC.

Love this:

“Biden hadn’t planned to make news about same-sex marriage or to endorse a position on the issue. The gaffe-prone vice president had been relatively on message for months. But on Sunday, he referred to the likely Republican presidential nominee as “President Romney” and to his own boss as “President Clinton.”

“[Joe Biden] is utterly unprepared to be President.” – Osama bin Laden

I think that is the first and last time that I will ever agreed with OBL.

You’re too stupid to be listened to.

Hi Dire. I have been very busy with major home projects. Computer issues haven’t helped either:-) Trying to keep up with the politics by reading, but not commenting much. Enjoy the comments that you and others post tho:-)

bluefox on May 8, 2012 at 11:48 PM

Raffling off Mother’s Day tweets from Obama? I know politicians have to do fund raisers, but this is sort of narcissistic cheesiness.
