Quotes of the day

posted at 10:30 pm on May 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

In the course of a couple of hours Thursday, the Romney campaign sent out unmistakable signals that it intends to fight the guerilla warfare of a presidential campaign with a new aggressiveness and combativeness

Team Romney views the Boston event as payback. But they also, by striking back bigger and louder, want to send a message to Team Obama that Romney is ready to fight. Romney aides characterize the Axelrod event as a “sneak attack” in Romney’s home territory. “The Obama campaign thought they were going to come into our own turf and launch a dishonest sneak attack on Gov. Romney’s record,” says the Romney aide. “We’re not going to allow that to happen. We are going to hold them accountable every single time.”…

The bottom line is, Thursday marked a new escalation in the day-to-day fighting between the Obama and Romney campaigns. And Team Romney hopes it has sent a very clear message that it will punch, and counter-punch, as hard as is necessary.

***

One of the most heartening aspects of the early stages of the presidential race has been the Romney campaign’s aggressiveness. Nothing discourages activists more than getting out front of a candidate who, it later turns out, isn’t willing to do what it takes to win. A number of Republicans of recent years could be said to fit that description, most recently John McCain. But not Mitt Romney.

We’ve seen it over and over: the Obama campaign will launch an attack, and in next to no time, the Romney team hits back–twice as hard, as President Obama and Glenn Reynolds both like to say. It happened with the smear of Ann Romney, it happened with the dog on the roof, it happened with the silly “war on women,” it happened with the administration’s clumsy attack on Bain Capital, and it happened again today with the Democrats’ attempt to denigrate Romney’s service as Governor of Massachusetts.

A campaign can resemble a boxing match. Obama thinks he sees an opening and takes a swing at Romney. But before he can do any damage, he realizes he has walked into a counterpunch. Bam! Romney rocks him, and Obama retreats in disarray. Romney has shown himself already to be a top-notch counterpuncher.

***

Color me increasingly impressed by Team Romney’s refusal to play by Democratic/Media Complex rules of engagement. You know, the ones in which the Republicans are always being asked to repudiate this or apologize for that. The fundamental juvenility of the crybaby left is hard-wired into their hurt-feelings DNA, and it’s fun to watch them stamp their tiny feet in rage…

No more defensive McCain crouch this time out. No more falling for Alinsky’s famous Rule No. 4, “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

As some idiot on the left has written: “Treat us with the same respect we give you, which is none.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

***

***

After being asked what grade he would give the president, Romney quickly responds: “Oh, an ‘F,’ no question about that,” adding that the grade applies “across the board.”

I always get a kick out of how all the pundits on MSNBC are always calling on Romney to defend Obama from his critics.
It’s like they cannot believe somebody would actually try to take his job away.

While I don’t like Romney, I am very impressed with his campaign. It’s not McCain’s campaign, that’s for sure.

Romney was not my first choice, but so far I’ve been favorably impressed by the way he has handled himself. He is not afraid to fight, unlike McCain, who couldn’t bear the thought of getting in the way of a black presidential candidate who all the kids thought was “cool.” McCain rolled over for Obama — while Romney appears ready and willing to roll over Obama. I can’t wait for November!

Romney refers to a “serious conflict of interest” in the Solyndra case. That is definitely correct.

Unfortunately, the phrase “conflict of interest” has very little emotional impact. I think terms like “scam” and “payoff” speak more powerfully to voters.

Romney’s Solyndra show today was nothing but masterful. And, when combined with the simultaneous Axelrod shout down in Boston, it tells me that his team is good, very good. They are almost at the level I most love, ruthless.

If they keep this up, Romney might win 50 of the 57 states.

To be successful in this Holy Crusade to save the Republic and Western Civilization, you must be the quintessential American like George Patton and Joe DiMaggio. You must fight boldly on all fronts and at all times and at this you must not flag nor fail. You must never succumb to the siren call of the regime’s propaganda ministers that will permeate the television waves. You can not bargain with this tyrant and his propaganda ministers. You can not reason with them. They will feel no pity for you and if they can, they will destroy you without pity or remorse. You must follow the tyrant Hussein Louie Obama to the inmost recesses of his mind and make him fear and dread the very sight and sound of you. You must never let up and you must make his fear of you permeate his thoughts from when he rises in the morning until he retires at night, where he will be allowed only a brief respite in between his nightmares.

That’s the way! Keep those hard balls flying. Obama has gotten by with murder because the MSM isn’t talking much, If at all, about these rotten scandals and other lies & corruption. But Romney can’t be ignored. Keep hitting real hard and the Obamanation will go down.

I have to admit, so far Romney is performing much better than I expected. I really expected a McCain-like campaign. McCain never went after Obama like Romney has thus far. That is great because we have absolutely got to get this unicorns and rainbows marxist and his minions out of the White House. We can’t survive another four years of this regime and remain a free people. Heck, with the EPA, BATFE, and other government regulators, we aren’t a free people right now.

Why does King Obama have Axelturd out there doing campaign speeches?

That’s what I was wondering.

I mean, OK the guy is going to talk to the press, etc. That’s normal.

But traveling to a select location, headlining an attack event? I can’t remember anything like this being done before. Axelrod isn’t Biden or some other surrogate, he’s a hireling.

And, he was pretty bad too. He was bad on TV recently too.

Was this supposed to be some pyche-out, with Obama being all gracious and bi-partisan hosting the Bushes, while David the A. trashes Romney in Beantown?

I don’t get it. They couldn’t keep it secret. Yet another miserable failure from Obama 2012.

Chanting “Comb-over!” @ Axelrod sounds like fun, but I’ll bet Team Romney has a better script for that, too.

Alexrod needs to be making new career plans for the post-Obama heat death of the Democrat party, so insults about his appearance seem petty. If someone who looked like Axelrod was working insteafd for liberty, abundant energy and sound government, I could care less if he has a comb-over or jug ears.

Unfortunately, the phrase “conflict of interest” has very little emotional impact. I think terms like “scam” and “payoff” speak more powerfully to voters.

Dextrous on May 31, 2012 at 10:57 PM

it’s probably a better idea that he stays ‘classy’ when he attacks 0, or better yet, presidential, and by that I don’t mean MCcain-esque aka unwilling (or incapable) to fight back…he does a great job at attacking them using their exact same tactics, while at the same time not sounding excessively crude…but not to worry, his surrogates won’t shy away from using terms such as the ones suggested by you, wait until new ads come out of the super PACs…

jimver on May 31, 2012 at 11:38 PM

Romney has shown himself already to be a top-notch counterpuncher.

I strongly agree with this….he’s not going to lie down like the spinelss McRINO did in ’08. He’s not going to be bullied, he’s not allowing himself to be “meme’d” – and his rapid response team has been aces.

He’s still got a lot of conservative cred-building to do with me though…regardless, he’s 1000% better than the marxist messiah.

Tim_CA on May 31, 2012 at 11:39 PM

Isn’t this commensurate with what Jugearz has been doing for the last year (or more) that he’s been campaigning? Trying to fire up his base and spiting the independent voters?

His internals must be abysmal and sinking fast.

Romney will have crowds there out of the park, and when he mentions “Nazi death camps” and “restoring missile shields” he will have the thousands of Poles there near Nirvana.

Great effing idea, JP!!!

That image conjures memories of the man who brought thousands to their feet at the Berlin Wall. The man I cast my first ever vote for in the ’76 Texas primary.

hmmmm. Why would he even think about wanting to re-do health care unless he knows it’s going down.

Yeah he got a leak. It’s done, he knows it.
Libs don’t like the fact that he spent so much time on it. So, hey, why don’t we spend even MORE time in the second term?
Sounds like fun, right guys?

That’s probably gonna fall flat for fund raising.

Memo to Team Romney: Listen to JP on this, he’s just given you a brilliant idea. Romney will have crowds there out of the park, and when he mentions “Nazi death camps” and “restoring missile shields” he will have the thousands of Poles there near Nirvana.

Great effing idea, JP!!!

I would personally write a check to Mitt to charter the flight over and back.

OT: I AM NOT A BIRTHER. But, if the image from this link is legit, Bambi has some ‘splaining to do. Could certainly be Photoshop, but eek..

No Mitt is going to own him tomorrow on the unexpected jobs report

If they keep this up, even some members of the MSM are going to start to like Romney. A daily stream of entertaining news that focuses on what people care about is going to be hard to ignore.

Trying to cover for the Won is going to become unpleasant and hard to do. Laziness will make the Team Romney memes more attractive to cover than the embarrassing White House/Chicago talking points.

Add super PACs with $1B supporting Romney putting out their messages, and it will be hard to ignore the super PACs ads that do not get repudiated by Team Romney.

I have to admit, so far Romney is performing much better than I expected. I really expected a McCain-like campaign. McCain never went after Obama like Romney has thus far. That is great because we have absolutely got to get this unicorns and rainbows marxist and his minions out of the White House. We can’t survive another four years of this regime and remain a free people. Heck, with the EPA, BATFE, and other government regulators, we aren’t a free people right now.

Not to pick on you in particular but I have been very amused by the number of strident and sure of themselves posters here who for some reason don’t understand that one doesn’t accumulate a fortune using nothing but one’s industry and brains without being very smart and purposeful.

As good as he is at running a campaign, Romney will be an even better President. Romney’s critics are wrong.
