Quotes of the day

posted at 9:00 pm on July 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

President Obama, at his second campaign stop Friday following a dismal June jobs report, dropped a line from his speech in which he cited the faint job growth as a “step in the right direction.”

With the economy typically polling as the top issue in the 2012 race, Obama is now under heavy pressure to demonstrate a turnaround sometime between July and October. A cascade of weak jobs reports between now and then would not bode well for his chances, though the president so far has kept the edge over Romney in many battleground state polls.

***

No president since World War II has won re-election with a jobless rate over 7.4 percent, a figure the economy is now almost certain not to reach before November. The president is quickly running out of time to bring the jobless rate down with just four reports now remaining before the election. And Friday’s report took on added importance as it will help set impressions of the economic trend heading into the summer vacation season, when voters tend to tune out…

Obama’s approval rating on the economy—consistently rated the top issue for voters— has long been mired in dismal territory. Friday’s numbers are likely to freeze the current dynamic that doesn’t favor the White House, forcing the president to continue a harshly negative campaign seeking to frame Romney as unpalatable alternative through attacks on his business record and extensive wealth, including his money in overseas accounts…

“I don’t see where the growth is going to come from now until the election,” said Matt McDonald, a former Bush administration official now with consulting group Hamilton Place Strategies. “You have a massive European overhang and business leaders are very concerned not just with Europe, but with what is going to happen in the U.S.,” McDonald said. “I think it will continue to be a pretty rude intrusion into the president’s campaign on a monthly basis from now until the election”

***

Have voters “priced-in” bad economic news as they evaluate Pres Obama? Stubborn polling suggests answer may be yes.

***

I am not sure [today's jobs report] qualifies as a significant miss relative to the market’s expectations. Still, those expectations were quite low to begin with. These are certainly disappointing numbers as compared to what had seemed possible earlier in the year.

Before the January job numbers were released, I wrote that 150,000 jobs added per month would make Mr. Obama roughly break-even for re-election given his approval ratings at that time. Between the strong numbers in the first few months of the year and the weaker ones recently, almost exactly 150,000 jobs per month have been created so far in 2012.

However, Mr. Obama seems to have gotten the benefit of the doubt from voters. His approval ratings improved some early in the year, but have not yet declined much with recent jobs reports.

***

Steve Schmidt, the 2008 campaign manager for Senator John McCain’s presidential bid, said voter attitudes about the economy had solidified already and would not be much affected by new jobs numbers on Friday or the rest of the year.

“The shape of the playing field is largely set,” Mr. Schmidt said. “They believe it’s a very bad economy. They’re pessimistic and they’re anxious. The campaign that wins is the campaign best able to address the anxiety. It’s a comfort argument.”

So far, he added, polls show Mr. Obama making headway in swing states with his attacks on Mr. Romney’s priorities, his finances and his record at Bain…

“The arguments that campaigns put out in July and August are largely unheard by the people who will decide the election,” Mr. Schmidt said. “Both sides are putting down markers for the arguments they’ll make in the fall.”

The June numbers, then, will represent another test of Mr. Obama’s resiliency.

***

I am beginning to get the feeling that voters are shrugging their shoulders about politicians, no longer believing they can fix the economic problems. They’ve reset their expectations about how political leaders can change the dynamic. After watching basically no growth in real wages over the last decade, no real growth in private sector jobs and a stagnant unemployment rate, they don’t think that a president (or a governor, for that matter) can do much to change the situation.

They also feel that politicians making typical promises about how they are going to fix things are not realistic or to be trusted. The public seems increasingly to want to be told the truth and what to really expect. They don’t want to be sold some happy story with slogans and talking points, but instead given a real sense of where we are and what our future looks like. It seems that voters want to be included in the conversation, and asked to be part of the solution. And they think the leadership solution is a much more local one in their communities and neighborhoods.

This “reset” on the country’s economic and leadership outlook of what might be a new normal could actually benefit Obama to a small degree. If Romney tries to make too many grand promises about what he will do as president, he could be viewed as untrustworthy and a typical politician.

***

June 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.”…

June 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”…

June 2010: “As always, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

***

Bailey has that look!

Dire Straits on July 7, 2012 at 3:07 AM

Somewhere in between? Or just the song title?

I looked through quite a few images of her and she is kind of hot.

I can’t get past Jennifer’s hair.

I’m going to agree with you. It’s Bailey. Besides, I looked at quite a few images of Jennifer, too, and baby don’t got back.

jaime on July 7, 2012 at 3:16 AM

Great tunes. I love old Stones. They mixed it up very nicely. Many style influences were evident.

I’ve probably played this one before, but do you like it?

4Grace on July 7, 2012 at 2:04 AM

Oh, yes! I think The Stones did almost no wrong up through “Tattoo You”. After that, I pretty much stopped caring.

Did you know “Lady Jane” was on the same US album as “Sitting On a Fence”, called “Flowers”? That was one of the first albums I got when I started buying records a lot, in 10th grade…

4Grace on July 7, 2012 at 3:18 AM

… Fiercely fighting off the conviction that if I had managed to stop being led about by Jennifers earlier on, I might be hanging out with my Bailey instead of my computer and a large bowl of oranges …

On your link to Valentina Igoshina’s performance of Fantasie Impromptu, there are also links to Yundi Li and Horowitz playing the same piece. Horowitz was the standard, I always suppose. Li is famous in China and HK. It was great to compare and contrast the style and interpretation of the different artists. All I can say is, the Internet and YouTube rule.

KWR,

Sorry for what happened. As JtL said above, it’ll work out…

Obviously, Pink’s no Freddie herself, but as a whole production, it was very good I thought!

You have a thing for Pink, don’t you? :)

Justin here would have been a better fit for Queen than Paul Rogers, that’s certain! The Darkness was one of the best bands to come out in the ’00s imo. The song & video are first-rate.

The Stones contacted Michael Schenker, one of my 5 favorite guitarists, as a possible replacement for Mick Taylor, odd & interesting factoid!

PS Aerosmith contacted him at one point, too, but made a Hitler reference (Schenker’s German) during the audition, and pissed him off too much.

Making the rounds -

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, “What are those clocks?”

St. Peter answered, “Those are Lie Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie
Clock. Every time you tell a lie, the hands on your clock will move.”

“Oh,” said the man, “whose clock is that?”

“That’s Mother Teresa’s. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.”

“Incredible,” said the man, “and whose clock is that?”
St. Peter responded, “That’s Abraham Lincoln’s clock. The
hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his life..”

“Where’s President Obama’s clock?” asked the man.

“Obama’s clock is in Jesus’ office. He’s using it as a ceiling fan.”

Two things — 1) Not enough back fat for lotion boy and 2) You’re a bit touched in the head if you think she’s in Martha’s (McCallum OR Quinn) category…

I like Martha Quinn – I even have an autograph from her! (jealous? :) ) (I have one from Vanna White, too, btw!)

But, ‘looks’ is subjective, as you know, and sexiness has a lot more to do with attitude/posture than looks does…Martha Quinn was cute, and very nice when I met her, but she wasn’t sexy at all in the way I find MacCallum or Amphlett to be.

Charlie’s Angels, etc.

I didn’t know this was an option. I change my vote to Farrah.

So you were THAT guy on the topless beach asking her for an autograph…Small world

Oh, and yes, I AM…

Two Thousand Maniacs

Wish … I had skipped that. Things can’t be unseen. I’ve been tweaked now. I can feel it, but I don’t know what it means.

Axe on July 7, 2012 at 4:42 AM

You know … that could be recast. The song. I forgot about it. I mean it’s a hard rock song in a soft box, i.e., Ozzy could have done that song. :)

Axe on July 7, 2012 at 4:06 AM

The singer of this band kinda sounds like a not-very-good copy of Ozzy, and it hurts their music – if they had had a decent singer, they would have been famous imo. Good lyrics, they sometimes remind me of Sabbath & Free/Bad Company, and they had a guitarist who often sounded like Eddie before Eddie was well-known.

Canada produced more than their fair share of good rock/metal bands, didn’t they?!

… Fiercely fighting off the conviction that if I had managed to stop being led about by Jennifers earlier on, I might be hanging out with my Bailey instead of my computer and a large bowl of oranges …

Whoa – I had no idea what that linked to when I posted my “Dirty Tricks” links!

Do you have any of their albums?

They are just doing their thing, but it sounds “derivative” in fifty different ways — it’s weird, but maybe they fit in so perfectly with everything that was going on at the moment that they just … disappear. “Nothing special” — but just because of the timing.

dunno. just talking.
