Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on July 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

President Obama’s bus tour through Ohio and Pennsylvania late last week offered a striking look at the evolution of a president. In 2008, Obama used soaring rhetoric and personal biography to talk about binding together a red-blue nation. His message today is about the urgent need to defeat a stubborn opposition party in order to move the country forward…

That is a change from the way he talked as a candidate in 2008. His message then was not so much about either-or choices. That was not the message he delivered when he first appeared on the national stage at the 2004 Democratic convention, nor was it the message he offered the night he scored his breakthrough victory in the 2008 Iowa caucuses that launched him toward the White House. He did not talk about elections as tiebreakers between two sides but of a country hungering for a new model for its politics…

Many Democrats say it’s about time that the president got tough, that he spent too much time trying to negotiate with Republicans who weren’t interested in negotiating with him.

***

It’s nothing like the first campaign, the former Illinois state legislator and U.S. senator said — when he and his wife circulated fliers printed at Kinko’s.

It sure isn’t…

Off the 68,443 ads that Obama has run on TV (local broadcast, national network & national cable) in the 30-day period ended July 2, 52,016 had an “anti-Romney message” — 76 percent of the total, according to New York-based Kantar Media’s CMAG, which monitors campaign advertising.

Obama’s negative ads have overtaken his positive ads. Since April 10, when Republican Rick Santorum’s exit essentially made Romney his party’s presumptive nominee, Obama has run 112,202 ads, of which 58,151 were anti-Romney and 54,051 positive.

***

Of the 17 TV advertisements Obama has aired here [in Iowa], eight have pummeled Romney’s resume as a governor of Massachusetts and founder of a large private equity firm. Increasingly, the ads have pressed the outsourcing hot button, although independent fact checkers have dressed down that attack as using false or thinly supported claims.

Republicans call it a smear campaign, arguing Romney was not responsible for what companies did after he left Bain Capital. Indeed, they point to Obama as an outsourcer, citing him as responsible for jobs sent overseas by companies who received federal stimulus money.

***

Top Democrats repeatedly slammed Mitt Romney on Sunday for his foreign wheelings and dealings, as President Obama’s campaign continues to make the case that the presumptive GOP nominee doesn’t understand the concerns of the middle class…

“He is the first and only candidate for President of the United States with a Swiss bank account, with tax shelters, with tax avoidance schemes that involve so many foreign countries,” Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“When it comes down to his Swiss bank account, there is just no way to explain it,” Durbin added. “You either get a Swiss bank account to conceal what you are doing or you believe the Swiss franc is stronger than the American dollar.”

***

Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley (Md.) hammered Mitt Romney on Sunday over a report detailing his use of offshore accounts, saying the presumptive GOP nominee had “bet against America.”

“He bet against America when he put his money in Swiss bank accounts and tax havens and shelters and also set up a secret company, the shell company in Bermuda, which, by the way, in order to avoid disclosure, he put in his wife’s name right before he became governor of Massachusetts,” O’Malley charged.

His comments come after a Vanity Fair report released last week said Romney’s financial advisers formed a corporation in Bermuda and the GOP candidate maintained holdings in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands.

***

“Being rich is not a problem,” said Bob Shrum, a Democratic consultant who helped Senator Edward M. Kennedy defeat Mr. Romney in their 1994 Senate race in Massachusetts. “Being rich and out of touch is a problem.”

Mr. Romney’s campaign has pushed back hard against some of the wealth-themed attacks, which have included assertions that at Bain he enriched himself by promoting the outsourcing of American jobs. Increasingly the Romney campaign is turning Mr. Obama’s attacks back on him by suggesting that the president is in denial about his record and is out of touch with the economic strains felt by most Americans.

“They just can’t come to grips with the reality of what’s happening out there and the president’s responsibility for it,” said [Stuart] Stevens, [a Romney] campaign strategist.

***

***

Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs said Sunday that Americans simply don’t know enough about Mitt Romney’s finances to determine if he’s doing anything illegal.

“We don’t know. Nobody knows,” the former White House press secretary said on CNN’s “State of the Union” when asked if the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was skirting tax law.

“The one thing he can do, Candy, to clear up whether or not he’s done anything illegally, whether he’s shielding his income from taxes in Bermuda or Switzerland, is to do what ever other presidential candidate is done and that’s to release a series of years of their own tax returns,” Gibbs told host Candy Crowley.

***

This president has already shown that he’s not who he said he was. He claimed he was going to bring everyone together, he was going to be this uniter. He’s been the most divisive, nasty, negative campaigner this country’s ever seen without running any positive ads.

Really? Not exactly liberal types? Really?

And honestly, do you think that either side has any interest in collaborating to craft legislation, which is by its very nature a bipartisan process in the US democracy?

bayam on July 8, 2012 at 10:27 P

Let’s see: “I won”, “The election is over John”. No Republicans allowed in the health industry nationalization legislation negotiations. Health industry nationalization final vote done by reconciliation after a legitimately passed House bill was gutted and nationalization bill was inserted in the shell so that democrats could pass by 51 vote democrat majority.

So pretty much, I’d say that the democrats have zero interest in passing anything in a bipartisan manner.

Our national debt is now greater than 100% of our annual GDP, and GROWING. That’s unsustainable. And the problem isn’t revenues, it’s spending, which SKYROCKETED after the Democrats took majority control in January 2007.

ITguy on July 8, 2012 at 10:37 PM

Perhaps the national debt would be much lower while our GDP higher if your yahoo president at the time and his political chicken hawks didnt think policing the world was the best way to spend tax payer money.

No one heard a peep from the chicken hawk cons about that spending. Now that Obama and some dems are advocating reducing defense spending, these same hypocritical chicken deficit hawks are now crying about him reducing spending.

it is a deep problem in this country that uppereastside probably represents a large junk of the population.

upper thins that economics has all the answers. And if we just handed thinks over to the best and brightest it would all work out

zealotry is never a pretty sight.

economics is a social science. i mean really, how stupid do you have to be to think that someone came up with the right solution in the 30s?

economics has a long way to go. and people who think they have the answers…all the way from upper to greenspan should be required to be honest..and tell the world they are just guessing

Take a look at http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/budget/fy2013/assets/hist01z1.xls

The worst deficit of the R-R-R House-Senate-Presidency was FY 2004, when
Total Receipts were 1.88 Trillion,
Total Outlays were 2.29 Trillion,
and Total Deficit was 0.41 Trillion

The second part of the Bush Tax Cuts were signed in 2003, and Revenues went UP, not down, but spending under the D-D-D House-Senate-Presidency skyrocketed and by FY 2009,
Total Receipts were 2.10 Trillion,
Total Outlays were 3.51 Trillion,
and Total Deficit was 1.41 Trillion

In FY 2009, the Democrat majority produced the worst deficit in the history of this nation … more than 3 times the size (nearly 3.5 times the size) of the worst deficit of the Republican-majority years, FY 2004.

And while the Democrats want to blame deficits on the Bush Tax Cuts, the Bush Tax Cuts actually INCREASED revenue, and the FY 2009 deficit wasn’t the result of lower revenues (which were 12% larger than FY 2004 revenues 5 years earlier). the FY 2009 deficit was the result of spending that was 53% larger than it had been just 5 years earlier!

That outrageous explosion of deficit spending, done by the Democrat majority, led to a FY 2009 deficit that was more than triple the largest deficit of the Republican majority years.

Obama’s attacks back on him by suggesting that the president is in denial about his record and is out of touch with the economic strains felt by most Americans.

According to polls I’ve seen most Americans correctly hold both parties to blame, and if anything Bush more than Obama because the bubble festered and popped under Bush’s watch. The truth is both parties are directly responsible for the economic conditions that caused the crash in ’08 and continues to afflict our country to this day.

Who also voted for a lot of the laws that caused the problem? Republicans. Who touted the sub-prime loans in front of La Raza or another Hispanic race group? George Bush.

FloatingRock on July 8, 2012 at 11:41 PM

So Gary Johnson and his Droogs are running against Bush in ’12? Well it worked for Obama in ’08 so who knows?

Because I was here before the Romney supporters signed up.

Small Ball.

Will everyone here who is a Gary Johnson supporter please self-identify? Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

I think UES is a Johnson supporter.

No, he’s running against the runaway debt and inflation caused by the corruption of the Democrat and Republican Parties, and the D/R problem is so bad now that America reduced to only one responsible choice for President in November, Gary Johnson.

Obama..

He’s my sugar daddy now…

I have no cause…
I have no future…

I have been given the right to vote…
for my demise…
And I will gladly take others down with me..

Upper….
You own it..
Take a bow..

Before Obama steals your steam…

Electrongod on July 8, 2012 at 11:52 PM

That’s why I’m so relieved that Gary Johnson will be on everyone’s ballots in November.

FloatingRock on July 8, 2012 at 11:20 PM

…and I’ll take a dump for you…in his memory!

KOOLAID2 on July 8, 2012 at 11:52 PM

Just too nice outside to stay in… but thought I’d check on the Johnson supporters poll. Think Patrick Ishmael would do one?

the next step in barry’s campaign is to go after mitts tax returns.

i’m sure our trolls will love that…rich, evil, man of white privilege…born with a silver spoon in his mouth doesn’t know how the other 99 percent live.

i watched (w/out the sound) the local ‘news’ tonight for a few minutes…they have loads of pix of the great Won, they had debbie downer and a couple clips of Rs

the time was prob 2 to 1 Left

Problem for Romney just at the moment is that tv ad buys are 3 to 1 Obama.
Buying the media is the only way Romney’s going to be able to dominate it.

Upper you’re a blooming idiot. Gotta love FDR and using war to get us out of our Depression…hey he is your man…

scum.

… and the number of people like him are what is going to split this country. Can’t maintain a taker to maker ratio that we are seeing, the liberty and freedom sucking regulations and laws coming from the democrats supported by people like UES and keep a free constitutional republic. Something has to happen to stop it and I pray that there are more freedom loving patriots than entitlement sucking leeches remaining in at least part of this United States.

A sad commentary on our nation. If people actually educated themselves on the candidates we wouldn’t need these ridiculous ad campaigns. I was at a BBQ today and this guy was going on and on about x or y TV show and I asked him a basic question about the election and he was totally and utterly clueless. When did it become cool to be totally ignorant of politics?

libfreeordie on July 9, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Bmore on July 8, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Floating Rock is a highly intelligent young person, dismayed with both parties. S/he is trying in vain becaus no one here will change their minds and vote for anyone else.

However, FR should never be called anything other than a desperate young person, for 1001 reasons. The left and the right ‘representatitves’ s/b lynched for what they did to the land. But in the end it’s the people’s fault. They are the idiotic moochers, a la Europe.

It worked for him during the primaries, so it’s not a bad strategy to take to the general election.

All generations of the Kennedy clan have their fortunes in trusts in the Caymen Islands, to avoid taxes. The leftists just love to preach to others.
