Quotes of the day

posted at 9:01 pm on July 21, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

By the end of June, Romney’s campaign, along with the party fundraising committees, had $170 million in cash reserves, $26 million more than Obama and the Democratic committees had available. That in part is due to the huge amounts of money Obama has spent as part of an effort to define Romney early to voters, points out Politico. Obama has spent a combined $189 million in April through June, compared to the $138 million spent by Romney. In ads alone, the Obama campaign spent $43 million last month, compared to Romney’s $12 million.

Republicans also enjoy a nice cash advantage with the outside groups known as super PACs. Even though the pro-Obama Priorities USA group had its best month yet in June, raising $6.2 million, it was nowhere close to the $20 million raised by pro-Obama super PAC Restore Our Future, reports the Hill. Priorities USA spent more than it raised in June as it unleashed a barrage of ads targeting Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital.

***

Obama entered July with $97.5 million in the bank, and used a part of it to run 35,347 television ads in the 14-day period ending July 16, according to New York-based Kantar Media’s CMAG. The Romney campaign, which began July with $22.5 million, aired 16,946 spots during that period. Since more than 97 percent of those commercials were negative, that meant voters saw twice as many campaign-funded ads attacking Romney rather than Obama. …

Obama continued to draw down his campaign account, spending $58.1 million last month with $43 million for advertising, including broadcast and online. Romney spent $27.5 million during the month, less than half as much as Obama, with $11.1 million going for media.

“President Obama’s campaign will never have a more substantial advertising advantage than it has had over the past few weeks, yet there is no evidence to suggest that the ballot has moved,” Romney’s pollster, Neil Newhouse, said in a July 16 memo.

***

A much smaller group of wealthy liberals gave money last month to Priorities USA Action, including actor Morgan Freeman, who put in $1 million. Chicago media company executive Fred Eychaner also gave $1 million.

But big Democratic donors have largely steered clear of the super PAC, focusing their efforts instead on raising money directly for Obama’s campaign. So far, Obama’s bundlers have brought in at least $143 million, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis of data provided by the campaign.

In the last three months, 107 new bundlers joined the effort, including longtime Democratic money man Terry McAuliffe, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, private equity chief Hamilton James, tech investor Chris Sacca and Maryland Gov.Martin O’Malley. Together, they raised at least $14.6 million for the quarter.

***

“I don’t think the effort was designed to sway voters so much as it was a way to get the Democratic base motivated again,” Smith added. “To give them something to be angry about again.”

And that is a sad statement about the Obama campaign. The president can’t possibly run positive ads about his record, so his only option is to fire up Democratic voters to hate Romney. But even many Democrats are troubled by Obama’s relentlessly negative — and mostly misleading — campaign. …

No, it appears the only Obama campaign strategy right now is to keep hammering on Romney’s business record, and somehow convince voters that the exact date of Romney’s departure from Bain Capital is more important than the 8 percent unemployment rate.

***

Campaign disclosure forms for Obama for America, President Obama’s reelection team, reveal a heavy emphasis on public opinion polling. According to the forms, in the month of June alone, Obama for America spent a whopping $2,639,265.72 on polling.

This appears to be a record this election cycle. And it does not include money spent on polling by the Democratic party in the month of June. …

Polling is often conducted by campaigns to make sure the candidate’s message is in sync with what the voters want to hear.

***

The National Republican Congressional Committee narrowly outraised the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in June. The NRCC posted $10.7 million in receipts compared with the DCCC’s $10.5 million.

The NRCC ended June with $41 million in cash on hand while the DCCC closed the month with $33.2 million in the bank.

I have to walk off the page a little on this. I respect what you both are saying. For my part, every troll gets an answer. Not a running argument, and not the dumb, single-liner guys. But avoiding the confrontation, ignoring the stupid — this has never worked. Many people will read the troll’s schtick (I fear), and some question will be raised in their minds. Without any comfort that they have a defensible position, they are quiet on the street later. Basically, we’re too damned quiet and too insecure in our positions to argue them forcefully, and that’s not good.

IMO, etc.

More of a guideline than a rule. There’s such a thing as feeling tired.

Pat Cardell and Doug Scheon aren’t real democrats.

Uppereastside on July 21, 2012 at 9:24 PM

Whose Pat Cardell and Doug Scheon?

Pat CADDELL is a real Democrat. He was the youngest person on Nixon’s enemies list and worked for George McGovern, Jimmy Carter, Gary Hart, Walter Mondale, Joe Biden, and Andrew Romanoff, who ran for the US Senate as a Democrat from Colorado in the Teanami year of 2010.

Doug SCHOEN is a real Democrat. He worked for Bill Clinton, works with renown Democratic pollster, Mark Penn, and was a paid consultant for Jeff Greene, who ran for the US Senate as a Democrat from Florida in the Teanami year of 2010.

Just because they don’t have shrines to Marx and sleep in Mao pajamas doesn’t make them anything less than Democrats.

I find it amazing how you Progs can claim with a straight face that the Republican party has become so extreme that Reagan couldn’t get nominated when it has nominated 2 Bushes, 1 Dole, 1 McCain and a Romney since Reagan — none of them “right-wing extremists” — while purging people like Joe Liebermann, the Blue Dogs, etc. from the Democratic Party.

If you think that Maxine Waters, Barney Frank, Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Nancy Pelosi, Henry Waxman, Jan Schakowsky, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Raul Grijalva, etc., are representative of mainstream America you are delusional.

Oh, hell, what am I saying? You claim that the Tea Party is dangerous and seen as so; yet, it is OWS that has been endorsed by the Socialist Party of America, the Democratic Socialists of America, the Communist Party of America, the Revolutionary Communist Party, the Government of North Korea, the Ayatollah Khamenei, Supreme Leader of Iran, David Duke, Hugo Chavez, the Revolutionary Guards of Iran, the Black Panthers (original), the New Black Panther Party, Industrial Workers of the World (Who even knew that the Wobblies were still around?,) the Communist Party of China, CAIR, Hezbollah, the White Revolution, Marxist Student Union, Anonymous, the Freedom Road Socialist Organisation, the International Socialist Organisation, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, the International Bolshevik Tendency, and the American Nazi Party!!!

Yeah, you guys really represent the American Middle Class.

They are Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen, the former a very sane D, used to work for Carter (don’t hold it against him – he is really one of the nicest Ds around), the latter is a pollster and analyst. They are both very nice gents, on Fox a lot (this makes the leftists sizzle) and they dare be objective, criticize the Ds for their incredible idiocies. They are the Kennedy type Ds, the sane ones, of which there are very few left. Kennedy, if he’d get to look back, would instantly die again at what insanity he’d observe in what used to be his party.

Keep an eye out for the two gents. You will likely agree. They are both smart too, meaning they use their brains and don’t spew marching orders. They think for themselves.

TXUS on July 21, 2012 at 11:40 PM

It’s not about them. It’s about everyone that reads them.

I’m saying that if there is a post by a troll that contains misinformation, it would be good to have a post right next to it that contains factual information. Or failing that, a post right next to it that suggests to anyone reading both how the first might be answered.

So, it’s about us.

I think it’s a mistake for people to assume they have no effect when they speak. Some perspective and not having an inflated sense of inportance is good — but feeling like your words don’t have any influence is to, in my opinion, misunderstand how strong words are.

Imagine a world where all the books were written by trolls, all the conversations were dictated by trolls, all the blog posts, all the comment sections populated by trolls … it would be psychotic, and no one would be sure what was true.

If any of you believe for a split second that you’ve seen the last of Obama’s fund-raising, I have a fantastic bridge in New York city that you gotta see. Foreign money – Russian, Chinese, Saudi, you name it – was a major factor in 2008 and will again be a major factor in 2012. The accusations will be flying and being coolly ignored by the lame-stream media and the Dept of in-Justice, and Obama will bleat about politicization of the Congress and the latest racism of the GOP, and the Republicans will chicken out and let the issue slide hoping that the conservative hate for all things Obama will be sufficient despite the money edge, and of course it won’t.

It runs relentlessly here. Over and over and over…

OmahaConservative on July 22, 2012 at 12:06 AM

I’m so sick of this hot and humid weather I could scream. I want some fresh air!

gophergirl on July 21, 2012 at 11:57 PM

Are the mosquitos state bird bad this year in MN?

.
I just went to the full resolution National Mosaic radar loop, and it appears you might (don’t want to give you any false hope) have some relief diving southeastward into N. Dakota, as I’m typing this.
Here’s hoping it clears out Minnesota.

See TXUS at 11:48. Forest Gump.

AP = Forest Gump, on vacation, looking for Jenny. It’s complicated. :)

I just looked at accweather – supposedly Thursday/Friday are supposed to be high 70′s/low 80′s and “pleasant”. I’ll believe that when I feel it.

..praying for you, O.C. and GiGi. Really am. For what it’s worth, we have very temperate wx out here in SoCal but, because of your situation, it’s guilty pleasure for me.

(I actually do go to waether.com and check the 10-day for Omaha.)

I think it might have had to do with my comment about AP’s whereabouts above at 11:48.

TXUS on July 22, 2012 at 12:07 AM

… it would be psychotic, and no one would be sure what was true.

Axe on July 21, 2012 at 11:52 PM

You have just described the MSM.

Thanks Schad. I posted this on my facebook page. I cut teeth on rock and roll so this is right up my ally.
I’m glad direct tv canned d.tosh.0 what a douche.

I think the issue on this particular site is a lot of users use the word troll with out really knowing what it means. To me a troll is someone who brings nothing to the discussion., will not debate and tries to drive a thread off topic. I have been called a troll numerous times for simply having a different opinion even though I don’t do any of the things I previously mentioned.

Which part of the country? Cause the better half just informed me she is breaking out the blanket. We are in Ga, suppose to be 60 tonight.

I actually have been shutting my air off at night when it’s tolerable. The dewpoint just shot up to 70 so I turned it back on.

I walked down to Target today and almost passed out it was so gross.

txhsmom on July 22, 2012 at 12:06 AM

I’ve heard they are bad. I live in an urban area so I don’t get many bugs at all – yeah :)

listens2glenn on July 22, 2012 at 12:06 AM

Oh please oh please oh please. Next two days look horrible but then hopefully some relief.

Here too.

Bmore on July 22, 2012 at 12:11 AM

Heh, Resist We Much, I finally went back and read your fantastic response to Upperdownside.

I answered your corrections, assuming erroneously that it was your question :)

Anyway, we know who the two gents are, and you gave the dummy a real good shellacking.

Apparently and unfortunately. I suggest a pattern of reverse infiltration to begin to combat it. It shouldn’t be that difficult to turn their tactics back on them.

Sounds very Breitbart-ish …

gophergirl on July 22, 2012 at 12:10 AM

I ain’t walking anywhere in this weather. I’d love to have a ride from my back door to my truck in the driveway. Wish I had a self starter for the AC…

OmahaConservative on July 22, 2012 at 12:13 AM

For those wondering where Allah is, I’ve found him….

The gator-aide did the trick instantly and I stayed in the shade.

It’s got ‘lectrolytes.

Axe on July 22, 2012 at 12:14 AM

Here are snippets from the book “Impressions & Observations” of Secret Service personnel assigned to guard U.S. Presidents/First Ladies, and Vice Presidents.

BARACK & MICHELLE OBAMA:

“Clinton all over again” – hates the military and looks down on the Secret Service. He is egotistical and cunning; looks you in the eye and appears to agree with you, but turns around and does the opposite—untrustworthy. He has temper tantrums.

She is a complete bitch, who hates anybody who is not black; hates the military; and looks at the Secret Service as servants.

A taxpayer voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders.

Take care…
Signing off…

..they do other stuff as well. Kick-ass right wing rock is the bomb. (Oh dear, the sexagenarian’s trying to act hip.) It’s a bit dates, but I got off on The Right Brother’s stuff. Bought their CDs just to support their stuff and flip an immense bird at the slimebags who want to drag this country down.

..think I’ll do the same with these folks!

You’re welcome. I got it from a friend who gave the land more than she ever deserved, with the plea to share.
