Quotes of the day

posted at 10:33 pm on May 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

The Obama campaign is opening a new front in its war against GOP rival Mitt Romney, ABC News has learned, with planned attacks to begin this week on Romney’s record as governor of Massachusetts and the campaign promises Democrats say he left unfulfilled.

Team Obama will point to Romney’s rhetoric on job creation, size of government, education, deficits and taxes during the 2002 gubernatorial campaign and draw parallels with his presidential stump speeches of 2012. The goal is to illustrate that Romney has made the same promises before with unimpressive results, officials say…

The strategy is a shifting of gears for Team Obama which had spent the past few weeks hammering Romney for his business record at Bain Capital. The attacks had come under fire from some Democrats as being possibly too negative, too soon, while Republicans decried what they called a double standard for Obama’s treatment of private equity executives.

***

Ah, charges of unfulfilled promises from President Barack “If I don’t have this done in three years, then this is going to be a one-term proposition” Obama, the man who pledged who cut the deficit in half in his first term, the man who criticized Hillary Clinton’s proposal for a mandate requiring Americans to purchase health insurance, is going to hit his opponent on broken promises.

Four years ago this week, Obama said — with profound humility, he assured us — that future generations would look back and say, “this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick, and jobs for the jobless, this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and the earth began to heal . . .” and now he tells us to beware of politicians bearing grandiose promises.

Obama 2012: Stick with the broken promises you know.

***

“C’mon. Let’s get real,” an exasperated David Axelrod, Obama’s top campaign strategist, said when asked if Obama’s attacks are boomeranging. “Romney’s been beating us up in a very direct and personal way for a year. This is a guy who’s offering himself to the country as a kind of economic savior, as a wizard. It behooves us to pull the curtain back, and that’s what we’re going to do.”…

But several top Democrats interviewed by POLITICO said Obama’s recent attacks — including his long defense, at a press conference in Chicago last week, of his decision to target Bain — may further damage a hope-and-change persona already dented by three years of partisan combat and economic turmoil…

“Obama’s got this Reagan thing going, the 1983, 1984 dynamic — he’s personally popular even though people aren’t personally enthralled with his policies or performance,” said Frank Luntz, a veteran Republican pollster who thinks Romney’s lack of personal appeal guarantees a deadlocked race until the end. “But his campaign has gone very negative, and at some point, people are going to stop giving him the benefit of the doubt.”…

“The danger for Obama in these attacks on Romney is that he starts sounding like other pols, and people just start hitting the ‘mute’ button,” [Peter Brown] added. “When you stand behind the glass and watch a focus group, you hear independents say things like, ‘He seems like a nice guy, but why is he throwing all of these shots at Romney?’”

***

The picture Heilemann draws is of [Obama] campaign managers whose assumptions have been proved wrong and who seem to be fooling themselves about what will work in the campaign.

One assumption that has been proved wrong is that the Obama campaign would raise $1 billion and that, as in 2008, far more money would be spent for Democrats than Republicans…

As for fooling themselves, I have to wonder whether the Obama people were spoofing Heilemann at points. He quotes Plouffe as saying. “Let’s be clear what [Romney] would do as president,” and then summarizes: “Potentially abortion will be criminalized. Women will be denied contraceptive services. He’s far right on immigration. He supports efforts to amend the Constitution to ban gay marriage.”

These claims don’t seem sustainable to me.

***

Obama wants to cast Romney as a return to Bush. It’s nearly the only argument he knows how to make. Romney, in my opinion, should turn the tables on Obama and make Obama defend his continuation of Bush’s spending binge (If Romney wanted to be really cruel, he could make the case Obama has continued many of Bush’s counter-terror policies as well). Romney has the luxury of being the outsider. He can criticize both parties’ records over the last decade. The tea parties won’t complain. Neither will independents. And, so long as Romney is respectful in how he frames his criticisms of GOP spending under Bush, most rank and file Republicans and movement conservatives will probably applaud as well.

Meanwhile, watching Obama try to deal with an “anti-Bush” opponent will hilarious.

***

***

“They are going after Solyndra,” he continued. “Americans don’t care. I’m sorry. I care about Solyndra, you care about Solyndra. Americans don’t care about Solyndra any more than they care about what Mitt Romney did 87 years ago with Bain Capital. They care about getting back to work, Carl. That’s a stupid ad.”

Bernstein agreed, adding that the ad reflects who Romney is: an opportunist.

Why is it that the ones making the accusations are the biggest bigots of all? narutoboy did the same thing.

John the Libertarian on May 31, 2012 at 12:45 AM

Ah yes, I remember that. His favorite thing was to include bigotry within his accusations of bigotry.

I believe at one point he said something to the effect of:

“White Southern Christians are just a bunch of racists who can’t tolerate people of different faiths or from different regions.”

That isn’t an exact quote, but it’s pretty close. Not a hint of irony or self-awareness.

And he was dead on about Moonbeam v2.0 stumping today. I caught some of it on the Heidi Harris show on KRLA and it was ludicrous! The taxes he’s proposing will “only be for seven years” and only affect the rich.

Meanwhile, I was listening to Larry elder coming home this after (talk radio junkie much?) and he was talking to a music producer who got sick and tired of all of the Californication and was picking up sticks and heading for Nevada.

NO STATE INCOME TAXES. He said he was going to save something like $30-50K per year.

However, we had one of the worst experiences with service at Denny’s there that we’ve ever had at a restaurant. They aren’t racist, they are just plain incompetent and don’t serve anybody in a timely fashion. For those unaware of it, years ago Denny’s was sued because they allegedly were discriminating against minority customers by either delaying seating them or taking a long time to serve them.

It’s got the April data there now and they’ll probably publish the May report tomorrow morning.

But, man, that’s one good thing about HG. Ed’s usually on that like white on rice. That and polls. He slices and dices those bullsh|t poll numbers like a Teppan chef and leaves those bastids gasping in the dust.

There’s a lot of analysis out there but it is usually too stuffy for me. Ed’s prose conveys the facts with a lot of humor and style..

Not the greatest place, but it’s usually pretty good for breakfast. Most Denny’s are slow service, so we usually don’t eat there, but this was the only place we found close to where we were staying. At that place, service wasn’t slow, it was non-existant. Got our drinks and never did see a waiter or waitress again. Actually got up to ask for service, was still ignored. We finally walked out, final insult? They still charged us for the drinks.

Had we turned right instead of left, we’d have found a local cafe that was cool. Had a bunch of locals talking to each other, you could tell that they were conservative and had been in the area for years. Food was good, service was great. We found that place the day before we left.

I’ll go back and read it though.

Evening Grace, it’s very anti-climatic, one moment she’s talking nonsense and the next she’s just gone.

2003 Cedar Creek reminded me of Hell & Sodom & Gomorrah on earth. It was very spooky and unreal…

OmahaConservative on May 31, 2012 at 1:33 AM

Yup, I’ve lived here since 1970, but the 2003 Cedars Fire and the 2007 Witch Creek Fire were the worst in the states history, they burned over 1 million acres each, the 2007 Witch Creek Fire burned all the way from Julian to the Ocean. (Julian is over 40 miles inland). They showed the smoke from the Witch Creek Fire on Google Earth for awhile, it reached Colorado.

..yeah, these things get pretty serious. Of course, AZfed and others in the Southwest are probably laughing at us because their fires chew up huge swatches of land and ours are like campfires by comparison.

..anyway, speaking of evaporating, I gotta scoot. Early day tomorrow. Good chatting with you.

73s and 88s.

Not many fires anywhere burn a million plus acres. I don’t think anyone is laughing about that.

SWalker on May 31, 2012 at 1:36 AM

years ago Denny’s was sued because they allegedly were discriminating against minority customers by either delaying seating them or taking a long time to serve them.

AZfederalist on May 31, 2012 at 1:12 AM

You left out about not giving minorities their birthday meals.

When I lived in CA, I resided in the San Gabriel Valley area of L.A. One year during fires, our street looked like a zoo. We had at least one of every creature in our neighborhood, just trying to flee the fires.

Goodnight, WP. Sleep well and have a great Thursday.

Yep, that freaked me out too. We just fed them science diet cat food and nasty San Diego tap water…

OmahaConservative on May 31, 2012 at 1:40 AM

No disrespect..but great service and food isn’t what I think of Denny’s. Denny’s is Denny’s. Why I don’t go. Hell, I will buy an egg Mc Muffin first.

bazil9 on May 31, 2012 at 1:19 AM

I go there for the atmosphere. BO, cigs, alcohol and tats.

LOL. Oh man, brings back fond memories. :)

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 1:43 AM

Instead of firefighters they should teach all the ppl who live off the state to fight thought fires…… it would save overtime……..;)

angrymike on May 31, 2012 at 1:43 AM

I never want to see Joe Scarborough’s face again. I would rather see Obama than this a*shole.

SWalker on May 31, 2012 at 1:44 AM

So what’s been banned in CA already?

Wasn’t either frisbee or throwing a football on beaches banned somewhere in SoCal?

And there were talking about banning plastic bags in grocery stores too right? What’s the status of that one?

LevinFan on May 31, 2012 at 1:45 AM

Maybe a crackhead could eat his face?

Dire Straits on May 31, 2012 at 1:41 AM

Yes, thanks. A quiet one, just me and the kiddo. We’ll do the whole family & friends thing this weekend. :)

Just fine ma’am and youz?

arnold ziffel on May 31, 2012 at 1:42 AM

Always better than I deserve, arnold. ;)

Hey! I just installed this monitor today, OC. Need it to last for awhile.

SWalker on May 31, 2012 at 1:44 AM

I’ve ate plenty of meals at Denneys, either after bar time or work breaks. Some Denneys are better than others. 1983 and before was a long time ago.

arnold ziffel on May 31, 2012 at 1:51 AM

Excuse my ignorance, BO?

LevinFan on May 31, 2012 at 1:48 AM

You didn’t read Chapt. 5 of BO’s book?? Yeah, the Preezy had a lot of stories about his Denny’s Daze.

(B.O. = Body odor)

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 1:52 AM

LevinFan on May 31, 2012 at 1:48 AM

body odoriferous :)

yes I did, my drinking days are way behind me………;)
I hope you enjoyed yours,

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 1:52 AM

Sorry Grace, but the last thing I want to do is waste my time reading a book written by our Marxist in Chief!

I almost bought “The Amateur” this weekend though.

I just started reading “Act of Valor” pretty good so far.

LevinFan on May 31, 2012 at 1:55 AM

Well I’d love to stay for some…..
CHIT

CHAT
But I’m tired, good night to all………;)

arnold ziffel on May 31, 2012 at 1:51 AM

Yes indeed it was, and coincidentally enough, that was pretty close to my professional musician days. (1981 through 1996) I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eaten at Denny’s at 3 am in the morning (Bar’s in California close at 2am)

SWalker on May 31, 2012 at 1:58 AM

LevinFan on May 31, 2012 at 1:55 AM

Sorry if I missed some dry humor on your part, but I was just joking about the book. I wouldn’t read it either.

I’ve been contemplating The Amateur myself.

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 1:59 AM

angrymike on May 31, 2012 at 1:54 AM

No, not tired of it. Was a good day.

Goodnight, mike. I hope you have a great night’s sleep.

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 2:01 AM

I’m hitting the hay. Just had a Fudgesicle and potato chips…

OmahaConservative on May 31, 2012 at 2:05 AM

Goodnight, OC.

Again, my condolences on your loss of Loraine.

4Grace on May 31, 2012 at 1:59 AM

Yeah, that one went right over my head :)

Glenn Beck said he wasn’t that interested in the Amateur until he interviewed Ed Klein and now says it’s a must read. I skimmed through it, looks like there’s some interesting stuff, and all of it can be used against Maobama.
