Quotes of the day

posted at 9:31 pm on May 20, 2012 by Allahpundit

The early border skirmishes of Campaign 2012 are reviving questions about one candidate’s former pastor and shining a spotlight on the other’s high school hijinks. Can a fresh round of questions about President Barack Obama’s birth certificate be far behind?

In a campaign year when voters have declared the economy their top concern, Obama and Mitt Romney are on notice that there’s no statute of limitations on the issues or conduct that might be used against them. And there’s sure to be somebody with money or other means to insert even low-threshold matters into the political dialogue.

“It’s open season,” says Eric Dezenhall, an expert on crisis management. “This is going to be very rough.”

***

House Speaker John Boehner is criticizing an abandoned super PAC plan to use the Rev. Jeremiah Wright against President Barack Obama.

“Well, look, this kind of nonsense shouldn’t happen,” the Ohio Republican said in an interview taped to air Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “The election’s gonna be about the economy and getting Americans back to work. And I think Governor [Mitt] Romney’s prescriptions are much better.”

***

ABC News’ George Will this morning slammed The New York Times for its story this week outlining a proposed advertising campaign to link Rev. Jeremiah Wright and President Obama…

Radio host Laura Ingraham agreed, and offered that this controversy may hint at things to come this election year.

“This to me was a shot across the bow that if you are a wealthy … If you are a wealthy, wealthy person in the United States, you happen to be conservative, you’re going to get involved in this election, then we are going to watch everything that you do, and you sort of step over the line, you talk about past associations with President Obama, anything like that, we will try to destroy you,” Ingraham said. “The idea that he (Ricketts) was considering it was a total false narrative put forward by The New York Times to send a message to other people, don’t you dare get involved in this election, in any type of, quote, ‘controversial’ way.”

***

In the interview, Wright told Ed Klein, author of The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, that he keeps a cardboard box of documents and notes detailing his experiences beginning in March 2008, when the controversy over his sermons began. “It’s a painful box to look at,” Wright said.

“Marty had me over to his home for dinner in January [2010],” Wright told Klein. “He said to me, ‘Are you keeping notes on what’s happened to you in this Obama campaign?’ I said, ‘Yes, sir, I am.’ He said, ‘Don’t publish it until after the next election. They’ll think it’s sour grapes. Wait until after 2012.’”

It was at that point, Wright told Klein, that he decided to leave the box untouched, at least for now. “I don’t look at the box,” Wright said. “I haven’t looked at it since I’ve been to Marty’s house.”

“[Marty] said, ‘Don’t write that until after 2012,” Wright said. “I said, ‘I’m not.’ [He said] ‘Don’t publish it.’ [I said] ‘I’m not.’ I haven’t even looked at it. I’ve just put all of it in one box and said I would get to it later.”

***

“I will fight hard for Obama to win. But just as his 08 campaign did, I believe we must elevate & not denigrate. This is the Obama I know”

***

“It behooves us to talk about what [Romney] did” as CEO of Bain Capital, Axelrod said. To that end, the campaign has released ads attacking Romney’s business record at the venture capital firm as “vampire” capitalism.

“We believe strongly, [as] most Americans do, we honor success, we celebrate success, but we want everybody to have a fair shot at it,” Axelrod said. “If you ask me, ‘Was Romney good at making money for himself and his partners?’ Yes. [But] if you ask me, ‘Was that a good vision for building America’s economy?’ …The answer is no.”

***

Karl Rove insisted on Sunday that attacking presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney over his work at Bain Capital will not help President Barack Obama as much as his re-election campaign expects…

“We saw that in how the Obama campaign went after him: they put a grand total of $83,000 behind their attack ad, and everybody in the media lapped it up. But let’s look at the facts: Romney invested $180 million in the company, the company made money for a while and eight years later after a flood of cheap-end steel came into the United States – principally from China – it and a number of other steel companies went under – over two years after he left Bain Capital.”

“Over time, I think, this is going to be okay for Romney, as long as he engages in it,” Rove added.

I like you for more than one reason, tom d. :)

Yes, bugs are starting early here this year (Texas Panhandle). The absolute only good thing about last year’s horrendous drought was that we had no bugs. Nada. But, a mild winter and a moderately wet spring has hatched every critter under the sun.

Well you can tell Bmore that I’m still out there, just super busy right now. Dealing with another job transition, kids, Honey-do lists from wife, and school.

The eclipse was pretty cool. we were a little south, so didn’t get the full effect, but I made card cards for the kids with the hole in them so they could check it out. Got some cool pics of the eclipse shadows on the side of the house through the tree.

I’m pretty sure that when Obama gets dethroned, all the dirt will come out in massive quantities as people rush to sell their stories and don’t fear retribution and goober isn’t signing their checks any longer.

esnap on May 20, 2012 at 9:59 PM

Or perhaps Democrats in high places, fearful that Barry is running a losing campaign and will drag the whole party down with him, will start leaking stuff. (Bill Clinton anybody?)

So the man who demands that fully alive babies be killed by slow starvation(Senator Obama on post abortion surviving babies) and dehydration, has the audacity to have his handlers call the good guy a “vampire?”

Bad enough they do what they do, but our moral degeneracy has hit such new lows that half the nation cheers them on, which implies strongly, that Obama is but a symptom of our problems-not the sole cause.

Don L on May 21, 2012 at 5:13 AM

If Obama were a stock…would you buy or sell now?

Don L on May 21, 2012 at 5:20 AM

The retarded Sean Hannity character can’t help but repeat the same, dumb quotes from Rev Wright ad infinitum. I think he was more of an asset to Romney during the primaries when he hated him and was in the tank for Bachmann, Cain, Newt, Santo, name-that-flavor.

We’re not going to win this election by dwelling over the garb-oj that didn’t work in ’08. We’re not going to convince America that they would rather have a diet Coke with Mitt than a beer with Obama. And it’s a pea-brained intellect who thinks that we should try.

Right wing talkers, if you want to help rid us of PBHO, talk about the devastation he’s done to our economy. Talk about the economic violence and misery that he has extended and worsened. Those of you who need to talk about something else, since talk is all you do, need to talk about what your opposite-numbered dumb-azz on MessNBC said or something and leave Mitt to run his campaign his way. Stop “helping” him. He needs your help the way he needs a swift kick in the nads.

I haven’t read above, so excuse me if you already said what breed you’re raising. I hope that they’re not Rottie pups. I’ve raised 2. They are the WORST puppies in the world! Willful, destructive, needy, did I say destructive?

It takes 2 full years, and then a switch in them goes on. In a single day, like a sun rise, they figure out that they’re not going to be Alpha and suddenly you have the gentlest, most obedient, sweetest pet on Earth. Every day is a fresh, new he11 until that day arrives. The mythical Job would have thrown in the towel after just a couple of days with a Rottie pup. But if you can make it through those 2, long, hard years, you have the best friend you’ll ever know for a decade :-)

MJBrutus on May 21, 2012 at 6:53 AM

I really do not think the stuff about Wright matters in this election. It is old news and obviously people could care less. I know there are people on the right who honestly believe it is relevant, but in terms of the next election…it will not make any difference.

Axelrod:

We believe strongly, [as] most Americans do, we honor success, we celebrate success, but…

Here Axelrod himself virtually endorses the Curved Space Full Of It Response. He shovels a big steaming pile but pulls up short with his big but. The Dems believe in success? You’re full of it, Ax. They believe in it “strongly”? Full of it. They celebrate success!? OMG you are sooo full of it.

“Everyone I know has a big but.” – Pee Wee Herman

MJBrutus on May 21, 2012 at 7:03 AM

What lie?

The instant pop-analysis that Palin’s selection was a move to attract Hillary supporters is, as the CW typically is, wrong!
Palin was selected to appeal to flyover country.  Those blue collar working people who Obama has not reached but desperately needs to.  I’m referring to the bitter clingers, who hunt, fish and watch NASCAR.  Unless BO recognizes the true threat to his campaign that she poses and ignores the Hillary paranoia that seems to be a national obsession among progressives, he will get his metaphorical ass kicked in Nov.

P.S. I know that a fan you are of dumpster diving for impartial quotes of mine, and placing a sinister, menacious spin on them. Let’s see what you make of this one from 7/27/2008:

MJBrutus Said:
9:47 am

Oh man, it’s so good to see that I’m not the only one who is creeped out by this poser. What really makes my skin crawl is the how this guy has done nothing and is somehow handed the mantle of conquering hero!

What does his resume consist of? He led the grievance parade in Chicago for a few years, followed by an undistinguished stint in the IL senate and election by default to the US senate. During his time in these legislative bodies, he hid from any controversial vote that came down the pike. He gives a speech at the DNC convention, mouthing platitudes about there being “no White America and no Black America (platitudes because he has no intention and never had of actually removing racial preferences, set-asides and other legal distinctions the perpetuate our divisions),” and suddenly next thing you know, he’s the King of the world!

I can’t leave without mentioning the other thing that kills me about the big O. He keeps promising to spend and spend and spend for a civilian service corps ($.5 TRILLION/yr), free health care (including for illegals), free college education (also for illegals as well), open borders (his Berlin talk about no walls), etc, etc. Has anyone in the MSM added up the price tag? Does anyone really think that we can just tax the rich and increase corporate and capital gains taxes to cover this and what it would do to our economy even if the money could be raised that way? I haven’t heard a peep from the MSM and that just creeps me out!

Yep!
….and, good to see OC back. His quotes, among others, are what first drew me to HA during the Brown MA election.

LOL! No, I adopted a Basenji mix brother and sister. They have actually been quite “good” considering that puppies will be puppies. For the most part, everything bad thing they have done I can lay at my own door.

Ah Basenji’s. They’re tough in their own way. They are more loners in their natural state than most dogs. Less pack animals and a little more cat-like in the way they bond. They can be really good companions, but they need their own kind of patience :-)

Your silence is uncharacteristic friend. Perhaps you are considering the mendacity and mean-spirited nature of your past deeds. That’s a very good sign. Confess your sins and welcome the forgiveness of those who extend their hands to you.

MJBrutus on May 21, 2012 at 7:46 AM

Cramer’s a money man, and he backs Obama? Huh? What? Bad “career” move, pal. But, that’s right, now that you’re old, you’ve got one eye on the grave and another on the history books, and you want to be remembered as a “nice” rich guy (see Buffett) who made his fortune off the backs of the “oppressed”.

Just a slow computer this morning.

PBHO is completely ungracious and petty, to be sure. But he’s nothing compared to the typical H/A commenter he’s the height of benevolence and altruism. Just consider all the remarks made right here on this blog from people attempting to themselves politicize and deny him any credit whatsoever for the successful operation. OBL sleeps with the fishes because of both Bush and PBHO.

That’s what I read. I picked the breed for it size, noise and lack of shedding. I also find that “experts” were very dismissive of the breed to the point of disparaging. For some reason I saw that a challenge.

And from that post in 2011, you conclude that I supported Obama in 2008? Please, for your own mental health and happiness, I ask you once again to put aside your lies. I can see that you unwarranted hatred consumes you and has for the years that you’ve stalked me at H/A. Accept the well wishes of those who only have your best wishes at heart. I forgive you for your dishonest belligerence.

Obama: Slaughter of Christians a misunderstanding

The violence in northern Nigeria is mistakenly viewed as a religious conflict rather than simply a tribal dispute over land, according to the Obama administration.

Despite the ongoing Muslim destruction of churches and the slaughter of Christians – including many murdered during worship services – the U.S. Agency for International Development claims that the misunderstandings make it difficult to administer aid programs.

RasThavas on May 21, 2012 at 12:16 AM

I.E., the slaughter of Christians makes it difficult to direct U.S. taxpayer money to Muslim murderers.

I am not referring to you as the “expert”, but the TV talking heads on the few dog shows I’ve seen. I’m considering this an experiment of nurture over nature.

Even if you had been a supporter of The Won, you certainly wouldn’t be the first to be disenchanted.

I was a strident opponent of his, of course. KJ has been playing this running gag for a year or more now. It amuses him, so I suppose I should leave him alone to play.

And no, I don’t claim the mantle of experts on dogs and didn’t think you included me in that group :) I love the critters, all breeds, and have a working knowledge of the characteristics of many.

Good luck with your experiment. I had a GF who had 2. Nice beasties, but one annoying habit of theirs was to stand on your lap, facing away from you (not their prettiest side, if YKWIM :-) However, they were affectionate and playful, although lacking in obedience.

so mika is not digging campbell brown’s piece…

this president is AWESOME for women, the gop not so much according to mika

puhleeze

You must keep in mind whose daughter Mika is…

She is the spawn of Zbigniew, who has much to do with the rise of Obama (behind the scenes, of course).

I don’t know if it will be a true experiment since they are mixes and it is already very interesting how different from each other that they are. We are only four months into the project but I had been too long without dogs.

Cindy Munford on May 21, 2012 at 8:54 AM

Girls look good in pretty much anything. We just want to unwrap it. Call me crazy but I still like blue eye shadow. The more the better.
My wife hates it when I put it on too heavy for church.
