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.”

..looking back on poor John McCain’s “come fight with me” acceptance speech in 2008 I now realize that it wasn’t an entreaty to join the fray but rather a shrill cry for help from someone who just realized he was in over his head.

Abbalutely gosh-darned right about Romney remaining calm, business-like, and above the fray. That’s what will get him elected. When the desperation sets in with the Obama campaign, the man-child will be hitting out in all directions and will probably explode.

This will be useful for a counter-punch when Obama tries to claim thay Romney has not been ethical. Lying on the bar application is a stupid risk to take, and the nature of the lie is likely to be embarrassing to Obama.

slickwillie2001 on May 31, 2012 at 11:33 PM

I happen to know both of them and people very close to them. They are livid that Obama and team are so tone-deaf and feckless at this point in the campaign.

Heard the other day that Carville stormed out of a meeting with Obama surrogates when they ignored his entreaty to adopt the Simpson-Bowles proposal.

And, when Lanny wrote that recent piece criticizing their Bain attack, he knew they were in the ditch and was just setting himself up as a leading Democrat lobbyist, post-Obama.

You lose these guys, both smart players, you’re toast without butter.

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.

Basilsbest on May 31, 2012 at 11:43 PM

You seriously misunderstand our objections to Romney. Bloomberg also amassed a fortune and is, if not smart, streetwise and purposful; I wouldn’t vote for him if he were the last candidate on earth. Same for people like Soros or others like him. Part of the concern was, that as an establishment Republican from the East, he was going to campaign like McCain. Not because he is not purposeful, but because that is an establishment trait. That he is not following that trait is good.

Now if he will just work to establish some conservative credibility.

Two things, why do you prefer her to Netrebko? Also, I went back to look for your comments in last night’s thread, but I can’t find it. The only page I didn’t search was the first page, otherwise I looked at pages 2 through 5. Do you have any idea what happened to your comment from last night where you linked the woman singing o mio babbino caro?

There is an ABC mantra that is used by salesmen: Always Be Closing. You should always be making your case that Obama sucks, and conservatism is better for the country.

While we affectionately call him plugs, there’s no question that Team O just wants him plugged.

TXUS on June 1, 2012 at 12:35 AM

For a minute I thought by “plugged” you meant Vince Fostered.

Red Crow stealing my links again. Just wait till I see him.

LOL. I should have waited a minute.

Video two. A wee bit muddled but still leading with a good right. Jab dang it! Use that strong jab.

O/T Tech problem. I need help. Why don’t I get any sound on video clips?

Reuters came out -almost at the stroke of midnight EDT- predicting 150k new jobs for May. Is this so the morning papers lead with it and skip the real number released later? Or do they know something?

The piece is here.

All Team Mitt has to do is remind everyone that Barry is a stuttering cluster F of a miserable failure.

Do you have your speakers turned off?

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.

Wow that’s all kinds of awesome.

Mitt needs to stand next to Walker Texas Ranger and tour the company that manufactures cans of whop azz

SparkPlug on June 1, 2012 at 12:26 AM

Mitt needs to go to Ted’s Ranch in Tx.

A trip to Wasilla, Alaska wouldn’t hurt either.

jaime was on the drinking thread with 7%. Your head is going to hurt in the a.m. Lol!

Bmore on June 1, 2012 at 12:39 AM

Yeah, it’s hard for me to remember from one night to the next who did what on these threads. Unless it’s a troll.

Many impressions stick in my memory, but the details get muddled, apparently.

What’s your all-time favorite song? Like, say, you were going to be put in solitary confinement for two years, and you could pick one song to listen to, and nothing else.

jaime on June 1, 2012 at 12:49 AM

jaime on June 1, 2012 at 12:49 AM

That’s an extremely tough one. One song? Let me think about it for a moment.

Bmore on June 1, 2012 at 12:51 AM

Start out a Southpaw and then switch in mid-fight with devastating effect.
The War Planner on May 31, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Well, I hope you are correct.

But I expect just the opposite. Start out Right, then switch to the left.

It’s rare that I drink in the evening, but sometimes I make an exception.

(I usually confine it to the morning)
