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 don’t even want to think about it – I’m still so furious at how they treated him in a wheelchair at the airport a couple weeks ago.

Romney better abolish that damn agency. The whole nation would stand up and cheer. At this point, I think that more people hate the TSA than hate the Taliban

Definitely. I sneezed this morning and almost passed out. Haha

I’ve cracked ribs before, but this cartilage separation thingy sucks. It’s OK though. I had my pity party last night. Balloons, cake, sad songs, chocolate…I’m blessed with good health and it will all be fine. Just don’t make me laugh, mike!!

Laughing, coughing, and sneezing are also good for hernias, and open-heart surgery.

I can’t be very specific for security reasons. I think the reasons for the welcomes back are because I announced before leaving that I would be out. I tried to tell Dire but he missed it, so I told cozmo to let Dire know. That was not the best thing to do. If you know cozmo, he likes to play. At any rate knowing I would not be able to post I didn’t want Dire to think I had been banned. After all folks do get banned for an assortment of reasons. Where I was it was almost impossible to post with any frequency. So I pretty much didn’t. I guess because I’m usually here and then wasn’t folks are being nice to say they ware glad to have me back. It was work related and not very exotic although it was on the waters edge. How’s that? ; )

I hope you feel better. Several years ago, I took the trash out before going to bed. Stood on a cinder block to get a better look at the stars. Yes, I had been drinking. I fell and knocked the wind out of meself. I recovered, went to bed and never told wifey about the incident. About 3 am woke up and could hardly breathe. I had cracked two ribs. They took at least a month to feel normal. Lesson is, have the wife or kid take out the trash.

arnold ziffel on May 9, 2012 at 1:41 AM

The TSA, in its stubborn refusal to target the actual terrorists, has violated a family member of nearly everyone in this country. If this keeps up, they will be more hated than the IRS, more hated than the Taliban, and more hated than Bush.

The TSA is an out-and-out un-American, tyrannical abomination.

The secret service has not talked to her yet. They said it was because she left the country and they could not find her.

..saw Romney’s effective handling of Obama’s Julia by pointing out not only was it a socialist meme but that it was a cartoon character. (i.e., that he is so unsure of his record he cannot dredge up a real-life example, etc.) Romney’s got some sharp campaigners on his staff.

Another commenter on another thread pointed out that Romney must be pretty tough to come through that death march primary and be within the MOE in polls against a so-called popular pResident. (Don’t say much for Obama, though.)

’m glad that at least Romney is out there attacking Obama by name. That’s a step up from McCain.

JellyToast on May 9, 2012 at 6:12 AM

Yeah, but now it’s like a game of “king of the cellar” – one step from the bottom still isn’t high enough to save America from herself.

Personally, I will remain in a state of horror and suspense until Romney’s places his hand on the Bible next January.

Media in the tank, voting fraud by Obama’s union armies, and plenty of real Julia’s in the country who want “free” stuff will keep me worried.

Krugman is a blithering idiot.

“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.”

And they were going to get rid of Saddam, too, criticizing HW Bush for not finishing the job.

Those two promised all sorts of la-la land stuff to get elected.

Then we got the attempt at Hillarycare and pushing for the insane assault weapons ban, which featured some strange ‘assault weapons’ as no one could define the term. Then came Monica and having to listen to Dick Morris about having to actually work with Republicans to pass some decent legislation to help win back middle class voters. Mind you Clinton was still sending troops into harms way without Congressional backing and knocking morale down as well as readiness by those ventures, until the 1 ID and 10 MD were at the lowest point for readiness seen since Viet Nam. Helping all those Muslims in Kosovo and getting some sort of settlement in Bosnia sure helped out the creds of the US in the Islamic sectors of the world…. I mean the terror attacks stopped after the WTC attack in ’93, right? Oh, wait…

Look at the first two years of Clinton and the only difference between him and Obama is scale of project and an immensely larger federal intrusion into the lives of citizens to enable Obama to be divisive and destructive on a grand scale. Clinton got saved by the high tech and comms boom, and handed an imploding bubble on to his successor. And if you can only get a balanced budget in a bubble that is about to collapse, you don’t have a sustainable government as every bubble ends.

Sparring in one of my karate classes. Then, like the fool that I am, I continued about my daily business for a few days after the fact.

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.

Republican says the same exact thing about Obama and he’s 24/7 news story.

There was a segment on the local conservative radio this morning about how the Dems are ramping up organizing here in VA. They are desperate, energized and pouring cash into the fight for the state. They consider it critical.

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.

That’s nice, but how much do I have to spend to get Obama to leave me the f*ck alone?
