Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on August 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

Ted Cruz’s stunning 14-percentage-point victory over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst in Tuesday’s runoff for the Texas Republican Senate nomination gives the tea party explosive momentum heading into the remaining primaries nationwide and the November general elections…

“Anyone who wanted to question whether the tea party concept and ideals played out in 2010, I think you can argue they just got started in 2010,” said Chris Chocola, president of the Club for Growth, a fiscally conservative, free-market group. “And 2012 is a clear indication the tea party is alive and well and growing.”

***

Cruz received critical endorsements and millions of dollars’ worth of contributions and other forms of support from the likes of Gov. Palin, who campaigned for him; Tea Party hero and fundraising powerhouse Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C.; the D.C.-based Tea Party group FreedomWorks, which is led by former House Majority Leader Dick Armey; the anti-tax, pro-free market group Club for Growth, whose top executive is former Rep. Chris Chocola, R-Pa.; conservative columnist and ABC News commentator George F. Will; and National Review, the venerated magazine founded by the late William F. Buckley, Jr.

Ted Cruz, in short, was an establishment candidate in his own right.

“It is time to think differently about the Tea Party,” said Darrell West, a political scientist at the Brookings Institution. “In the early days, the Tea Party was basically a grassroots movement, didn’t have a lot of prominent people behind them, didn’t have a lot of money. But now they have big money. They can bring outside resources into a state election, and prove to be very decisive. So they are getting institutionalized as a movement: They have major political figures who are behind them; they have money that is behind them. So they have emerged as a different type of ‘establishment’ organization.

***

Cruz undoubtedly embraced the tea party movement, which rightly deserves a hearty share of the credit for his feat.

But Robert George, who taught Cruz constitutional law during Cruz’s undergraduate work at Princeton, said he would caution against simply branding him a pot-stirrer.

George sees Cruz more likely molding himself into a gray beard of sorts who sets out to accomplish big policy goals and is the point man on constitutional questions…

“Folks would say the tea party is rough about the edges. You can’t say that about Ted. He’s incredibly committed to the cause, but he’s smooth, polished and very articulate,” Elliott said. “It’s clear they’ve already identified him as someone who is going to join the leadership core in the U.S. Senate, perhaps for the next 20 or 30 years.”

***

Original Tea Partiers, who remember the days mass rallies and colonial outfits, say they don’t miss that chaotic moment. The newer, more efficient movement fits their needs.

“I don’t look at it as institutionalization, I look at it as getting the job done,” said Amy Kremer of Tea Party Express. “All that matters is that Ted Cruz is victorious. All that matters in November is that we take the White House and the Senate.”…

For a movement that has prided itself for the three years of its lifespan on being anti-establishment, the Tea Party — thanks to the slick abilities and organization of groups like FreedomWorks — is becoming its own establishment, kind of a counter-establishment on the right.

“It’s all about the credibility too – because we take on the party, that gives us this credibility,” Brendan Steinhauser said, adding that “We’re not afraid to bloody up their noses.”

***

“These guys [newly elected Tea Party candidates]” are going to force Romney to the right,” said Andrea Shell, a spokeswoman for Tea Party group Freedom Works. “That is our entire mission.”…

“If we can elect a really conservative House and Senate that will force Romney to go along with our bold conservative agenda,” Shell said. “He’s going to have to really, really go to the right. He’ll be working with guys in the House and Senate. He won’t be able to get away with too many middle of the road policies, especially on things like the deficit.”…

“It’s not going to be a Romney driven presidency,” Norman Orenstein, a researcher at the conservative think tank AEI recently told ABC News. “It’s going to be a Congressional, conservative, Republican driven presidency from Congress.”

***

DeMint argues the more tea party movement-backed senators, the less gridlock.

“(When) Ted Cruz comes in … I think he can help empower some of the Democrats to make those hard decisions,” DeMint told CNN.

The South Carolina lawmaker believes the more staunch conservatives in the Senate, the more Democrats will be forced to compromise and come the GOP’s way.

“I think there are enough Democrats, if we have a strong mandate election, who will work with people like Ted Cruz and (Sen.) Marco Rubio and (Sen.) Pat Toomey and these senators here, in a sensible way to change the course of our country,” said DeMint. “The good news is this: because the rest of the world is in such bad shape, if we make a few hard decisions about fixing our tax code, fixing our entitlements so that we’re on a sustainable course, America could be the best place to do business overnight.”

***

Some are already sensing a shift in the attitude of the Senate leadership.

“I notice that Mitch McConnell is speaking at a Tea Party rally soon,” Mr. Mourdock said in an interview on Wednesday. Mr. Mourdock campaigned with Mr. Cruz, who told him, he said, that he had taken his inspiration from Mr. Mourdock’s insurgent campaign in Indiana.

“Just the fact that the Republican leadership is willing to reach out to those folks is important,” Mr. Mourdock said. “If that kind of coalition comes together, on Day 1 it will be if not a literal majority a real large majority, and I think on Day 1 we will jump right into the frying pan.”

***

A final point here: One of the most underreported stories of this presidential election is how the Republican brand is in FAR WORSE shape than the Democratic brand. In our most recent NBC/WSJ poll, the GOP’s fav/unfav was 34%-43% vs. the Democrats’ 40%-40%. Indeed, the GOP has had a worse fav/unfav than the Democrats in every single NBC/WSJ poll (that’s 14 of them!!!) since Jan. 2011, after Republicans won control of the House. So as the Tea Party/grassroots/anti-establishment conservative wing of the GOP has become MORE powerful, the GOP’s overall brand image has gone down, especially with indies. It is hard not to believe these two facts aren’t connected. And this raises the question: Will this be a drag on Romney? Or here’s another way to put it: How can this not be a drag on him? Help us out with this riddle: When was the last time a presidential candidate won when their party was viewed MORE unfavorably than the other side?

He’s not just a factional leader,” said George. “There’s going to be some big constitutional questions to address. … And he might be one of the few U.S. senators who’ve read Tocqueville.”

I don’t care about the Politico’s identity politics, but I care about who has influenced his thinking. It is terrific news that he was learned from Robert George. I knew George endorsed him, but I didn’t know this.

George is a brilliant, solid conservative. I’ve quoted him numerous times.

gumbyandpokey on August 1, 2012 at 10:45 PM

You do understand that Romney is not yet the “Official” GOP candidate right?

There are restrictions placed on the Romney campaign in reference to funding and spending because of not yet being the official nominee..

Obama is out spending Romney like crazy with little to no impact.

What do you think will take place after the convention? (GOP)

You actually believe all those polls?

Maybe it’s time for the naysayers out there and the “chicken-little” Palin supporters to come to the same realization.

LevinFan on August 1, 2012 at 11:36 PM

Wow… I sure hope you bought fire insurance before posting that… :O

Good evening!..:)

Dire Straits on August 1, 2012 at 11:49 PM

Looks like it was a busy day round here. I was covered up most of the day. We’re you around for any of the fun?

Bmore on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

I see that miss bazil is in rare form tonight ……….;-)

angrymike on August 1, 2012 at 11:52 PM

Yep. I’m so proud that she is all mine and we can share our loving thoughts in private on the internet.

SparkPlug on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Lol! Good times! ; ) I’ll bing some appropriate tunes for the cause.

Bmore on August 1, 2012 at 11:29 PM

RELAX
I am all over this.

PolAgnostic on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

I just hide in the corner and whistle no particular tune.

SparkPlug on August 1, 2012 at 11:50 PM

I was born in the wagon of a travellin’ show
My mama used to dance for the money they’d throw!..:)

Dire Straits on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Thanks Axe, that’s a nice touch. Can we have some curly fries and nachos as an appetizer? And bring us a platter of shark kabob for the little lady.

SparkPlug on August 1, 2012 at 11:43 PM

Excellent choices, Sir. I shall pop off and kill the shark myself this instant. I’ve only one remaining hand, but what of that? I live to serve Sir and Madam, and two hands is sacrifice unprizable.

Perhaps Madam will find my other hand as some small part of her Kabob! But — I’m unworthy to be eaten by Madam.

I’ll return shortly.

Axe on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

Ah the person who gives my state a bad name?

gophergirl on August 1, 2012 at 11:53 PM

Yeppers, she cracked down on this thread right away.

Good Night friend to the North, Sleep Well.

Bmore on August 1, 2012 at 11:55 PM

My uncle used to scare me with shark steaks. I’ve never tried one.
Dun nuh dun nuh dun nuh dun nuh…..

AllahsNippleHair on August 1, 2012 at 11:42 PM
Whimp. :) Dun nuh nuhhhhhhhhhhh. Nice steak like fillets. Hold up on the grill. The nurse sharks are nice though..I let them go. Caught many in the Keys. I cant gaff one to the head.

OmahaConservative on August 1, 2012 at 11:55 PM

Wiped off the front page now, though. You’d have to dig to find it.

hee…I had a good day and talked to an old friend. Life is good.

bazil9 on August 1, 2012 at 11:57 PM

She endorsed John McCain too.

We aren’t drones and if Sarah Palin says something, we listen…and then make up our own minds.

*signed* – Chicken Little

sharrukin on August 1, 2012 at 11:40 PM

Chicken Little:

So are Mark Levin, Rush, Beck, and Palin all stupid? Have they all sold out?

I mean they’re all just falling for the same business as usual right? They clearly don’t see the big picture like you do, that sitting at home and pouting or actually voting for obama is the answer, so they’re all stupid while you, unseen, and steveanal are the only ones who are right!

LevinFan on August 1, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Not much!..:)

Dire Straits on August 1, 2012 at 11:55 PM

Sounds like we both lucked up then. Lol! ; )

SWalker on August 1, 2012 at 11:53 PM

Like I’m afraid of what a bunch of naysayers who all repeat the same tired “Romney sucks, he’s the white obama, blah blah blah” talking points have to say!

LevinFan on August 2, 2012 at 12:00 AM

Axe on August 1, 2012 at 11:54 PM

ROTFLMAO.

Just as long as the shark is killed humanely with your last remaining stump.

Me and the little lady (Madam B9) don’t want our dinner entree traumatized before it gets skewered.

I will leave a sizable tip so can afford to buy some prosthetic limbs for your troubles.
