Man who won landslide in 2008: An election is bound to be tight when you have a name like mine

posted at 5:21 pm on May 15, 2012 by Allahpundit

The obligatory pit stop on “The View” for America’s first female president. I think this dumb, insulting line is almost a verbal tic for him at this point. He used a variation of it on the trail in 2008 to smear McCain even though Maverick refused to make an issue of his association with Rev. Wright because he didn’t want to be attacked as racist. And now he’s going to use it again to smear Romney supporters and undecideds who end up concluding that he’s been a crappy president, even though we have empirical proof that the name “Barack Hussein Obama” will not in fact prevent someone from winning 365 electoral votes and several southern swing states. If this lame appearance designed to pander to women were anything like a real interview, one of these five would have hit him with the obvious follow-up: Would a president with a funny name be facing a tight election if unemployment had dipped to six percent and we hadn’t hemorrhaged $5 trillion more in debt in three years? Instead, he had to face tough questions about which Kardashian was married to Kris Humphries, which is just the sort of submoronic thing you’d ask if you were trying to help him relate to low-information voters by letting him show his “common touch.”

That’s the first clip. The second clip is him giving himself a grade of “incomplete” on the economy, which, as Jim Geraghty explains, is realistically the only grade he could have given. If he stuck by the “solid B+” he gave himself in 2009 when Oprah interviewed him, Team Mitt and conservative media would have a field day week month with it. If he gave himself a more realistic grade, he’d be inviting voters to throw him out of office. But never mind that. Pay attention at 1:45 when he says, “Everybody sitting on this couch is probably going to have to pay a little bit more in taxes so we don’t have to raise taxes for middle-class families.” Is that a reference to letting the Bush tax cuts on the wealthy lapse or a reference to the Buffett Rule? I think he meant the former but, given how much time he’s spent lately talking about the latter, it’ll probably be perceived as a reference to that. In no sphere of fiscal reality will the chump change raised by the Buffett Rule offset the amount of revenue that could be raised by taxing the middle class, but as I’ve said before, I think that’s the impression O wants voters to have — that if only we raise taxes on the rich a little bit and trim a little fat on the budget, our problems will be solved. That’s not remotely true but misleading voters in that way is hugely useful for a campaign based in part on stoking class resentment. In fact, guess which unlikely truthteller blurted out the following at a D.C. event today:

“This is just me now, I’m not speaking for the White House — I think you could tax me at a 100 percent and you wouldn’t balance the budget… We are all going to have to contribute to this, and if middle class people’s wages were going up again, and we had some growth to the economy, I don’t think they would object to going back to tax rates [from]” … before the Bush tax cuts.

Surprise.

esr1951 on May 15, 2012 at 5:32 PM

It’s like Treacher said, Obama is looking to blame someone for his prospective loss. A hallmark of narcissism is that admitting you’re wrong is a horribly painful thing. So you must blame others to avoid that pain. Add to racism, richism, homophobism … name-ism. People don’t like him because of his name. This is a transparent attempt to shift blame. “It’s not my fault — the hateful voters are to blame. They don’t like my name”.

Paul-Cincy on May 15, 2012 at 5:32 PM

Obama is finally right! It’s gonna be a tight election. Hopefully, Romney pulls a win though!

We are all going to have to contribute to this, and if middle class people’s wages were going up again, and we had some growth to the economy, I don’t think they would object to going back to tax rates [from]” … before the Bush tax cuts.

IF middle class people’s wages were going up, they wouldn’t object to paying more taxes? Who will be paying them higher wages? Employers, who are clobbered by corporate taxes and taxes on the rich and ObamaCare taxes and all sorts of draconian regulations, who barely have enough to pay their employees? Who, with so many people unemployed, can hire them back for cheap?

So if middle-class people’s wages are NOT going up, they WOULD object to their taxes going up.

Obummer is just hoping that the women who watch The View can’t figure that out. Those who WOULD object to their taxes going up aren’t watching The View–they’re too busy working!

As others have already pointed out, it really is unbelievable…and yet completely believable that this guy would seriously portray himself as a victim while occupying the White House. Other leaders must be absolutely baffled at how ObaMao managed to get elected. And the simple answer is that the media ran interference for him so successfully that voters were bamboozled. That, plus the unacceptable impulse of white guilt. The media is still in the tank for Dear Leader, of course, but nobody should feel any guilt about preventing ObaMao from getting a second term in office. A second term without any accountability to the voters. Just think about the damage this guy could do.

cicerone on May 15, 2012 at 5:45 PM

I replay my previous comment as it’s totally on topic for this:

The Anti-American
Is it traitorous for Obama to eat dog? No, though that goes against the grain of our country. Yet the real problem is not that he ate dog when he was a little tike in a muslim country, but that he didn’t show the decency to not mention that. Indeed, in O’s book, his selling point was that he was something exotic, and eating dog went right along with that. So Bill Ayers included the dog-eating in O’s book. And this also was the selling point in the ’08 election: his own words “don’t you think that a person named Barack Hussein Obama would be the best antidote to George W Bush?”
His selling point was that he was the opposite of G Bush. And implicit in this was that he was the anti-American. But that’s what O is, anti-American. He is an exotic antidote to all that is great about this country, to 200 years of tradition.
Let the people know that it was Barack Hussein Obama’s exotic nature that appealed to them. But that now that exotic quality has run its course of novelty appeal, and that the antidote, the cure, is worse than any disease they ever imagined.

“People who think with their epidermis or their genitalia or their clan are the problem to begin with. One does not banish this specter by invoking it. If I would not vote against someone on the grounds of ‘race’ or ‘gender’, then by the exact same token I would not cast a vote in his or her favor for the identical reason.

Yet see how this obvious question makes fairly intelligent people say the most alarmingly stupid things.” ― Christopher Hitchens

bluemarlin on May 15, 2012 at 5:39 PM

It makes perfect sense. It’s how Obama got elected in the first place. And no, it’s not that only 20% approve of his performance. Due to conditioning, it’s racist to judge Obama by the same standards as, say, Dubya. His approval rating is pretty much what is reported, because the country is essentially grading on a curve when it comes to Obama. And that will continue in November. I don’t have any patience with those who are putting faith ONCE AGAIN in the Bradley Effect. Forget it.

Hey, it’s crr9!

There have only been two “Polls” here in the Battleground State of NH in 6 weeks, and neither of them came from unbiased sources. Two “polls” do not a State Election win or loss make.

As for Romney getting a “minimum of public exposure”. what the getalife are you babbling about? He’s already been given a rectal exam by the Democrat Media that they would never give O’bama.

PS, I am saving your last two sentences in the Vault. Comedy Gold.

Who is this “Obama” person running for president? I dont like the way that name sounds. I’m voting for the other guy…..

Wait, the other guy is named “Willard”. That makes me think of rats. Maybe the first guy isn’t so bad. /s
This is how dems think americans choose who they vote for.

+1 … if Obummer wasn’t (half-) black, Hillary would be Preezy now.

You forgot clean and articulate. He’s a triple threat.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Obama is lazy and incompetent. Hillary’s policies are just as bad, if not worse, but she might have made a more cunning, energetic POTUS, especially with Bill helping her.

From “solid B+” to incomplete incompetant.

Fixed

The Sweasel one is realistic.

With all the names this guy has used, who is the name he’s using now? Was the reason to drop “Barry” so he could run against a member of the Black Panthers and sound even more racist? How about “Hussein Soto”?

“Unbiased sources” = those that produce polls that show Romney at least within the MOE.

As for Romney getting a “minimum of public exposure”. what the getalife are you babbling about? He’s already been given a rectal exam by the Democrat Media that they would never give O’bama.

Simple. Obama just came out publicly in support of gay marriage, while Romney can’t even get an immigration policy together. At some point he’s going to have to enunciate some policy positions.

Go right ahead. He who laughs last…

So …

should we take your silence as a substitute for

“I can’t explain the number because I didn’t do any demographic analysis to support the 20% number I just pulled out of my butt.”

PolAgnostic on May 15, 2012 at 6:07 PM

“Demographic analysis”? The guy us at roughly 50% approval with a real unemployment rate in the teens. A guy who’s been hailed as Mr Electable Inevitable All Around Only Serious Adult In The Room for the past 3 years can’t seem to get to 50% against him. There’s your “demographic analysis”.

ddrintn on May 15, 2012 at 6:24 PM

Like hell it has. It’s the only reason Obama’s approval rating isn’t at 20%, and it’s the main reason Obama will be re-elected.

ddrintn on May 15, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Would you care to explain the logic behind that statement?

Serious question, because the numbers don’t add up.

PolAgnostic on May 15, 2012 at 5:37 PM

I assume it’s lib logic. Lib logic is based on assumptions that do not correlate well with reality.

I’ll guess it has something to do with white guilt in polling and affirmative action in the voting booth.
