Quotes of the day

posted at 10:52 pm on August 27, 2012 by Allahpundit

This week will be about more than watching the Weather Channel for Hurricane Isaac updates; it will also represent a chance to take the temperature of the contemporary GOP. If the schedule is anything to go by, the readings will be mixed indeed—on Wednesday night, for example, delegates will be greeted in rapid order by a video of Ron Paul, then Senate Minority Leader and longtime establishment hack Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), then the man McConnell tried desperately to prevent winning the GOP senatorial primary in Kentucky (Sen. Rand Paul), then after another speaker a man who stands for most everything Ron Paul abhors (Sen. John McCain [R-Arizona]). You can count on one hand, maybe even one finger, the core beliefs those four men share.

The Ron Paul insurgency in particular presents a conundrum to the GOP. Even though some establishmentarian types would love to wash their hands of him, and the liberty movement’s future without its anti-charismatic leader is unclear, Republicans just can’t afford to lose Paul’s 11 percent share of the primary vote…

So the party that hasn’t figured out what it believes cannot afford to alienate any of its members who disagree strongly with one another. Though you will hear a lot this week about Republican unity against President Obama, that masks an ideological peace that at best is fragile, unattractive, and unsatisfying.

***

[I]n some ways, the Republican Party today appears more factionalized — ideologically, politically and culturally — than Republican leaders said they could remember in recent history.

There are evangelicals, Tea Party adherents, supply-siders who would accept no tax increases and a dwindling band of deficit hawks who might. There are economic libertarians who share little of the passion that social conservatives hold on issues like abortion and same-sex marriage. There are neoconservatives who want a hard line against Iran and the Palestinians, and realists who are open to diplomatic deal-cutting…

“For some folks in the party these days, it’s not only the Washington establishment they’re running against. They’re opposed to anything that is perceived as being any kind of establishment, even if they are conservative,” Mr. Quayle said. “To me, that is craziness. The party has got some real challenges coming down the pike. It’s a minority party, and we’ve got to realize that it’s a game of addition, not subtraction.”

***

Other presidential campaigns have gotten much further, then folded. But Paul’s people kept up hope. Maybe they could influence the Republican platform. Maybe they could scoop up uncommitted delegates and nominate Paul anyway. Maybe they could force the convention to a third ballot—which would free up delegates to look into their souls and vote for Dr. No…

The common theme: Ron Paul could still win, if these bastards didn’t keep taking delegates away. A group of Maine delegates walked around PAUL Fest in matching baseball caps, explaining how the state party had taken half their votes away in a series of arguments before the larger, pro-Romney Republican National Committee. It was so rotten, such obvious cheating, that Maine’s Republican governor was refusing to come to Tampa…

This is what outsiders don’t understand: Oodles of Paul supporters believe that the delegate switch-ups literally cost them a chance at the nomination. James DiPasquale, a Florida activist who watched some friends try and fail to become delegates, argues that Paul could win if the contest stretched on for a few ballots. (There has been no multi-ballot convention for decades.) “If every delegate was allowed to vote his conscience,” he asks, “how many of them really would want to vote for Romney? It would be a landslide for Ron Paul.”

***

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has a message for Ron Paul supporters who say they feel “disrespected” by the Republican Party’s delegate allocation process: You lost, move on.

“I don’t think they’ve been disrespected,” Huckabee told a gaggle of reporters as we walked through the convention center here near the Tampa Bay Times Forum. “Elections are about—you get numbers. I lost four years ago, and I didn’t feel disrespected as much as I felt defeated. You have to accept that the voters make a choice and the voters made a choice.”…

Huckabee has called Paul supporters “fanatical believers” who “don’t represent mainstream Americans.”

***

Mr. Paul’s backers here exemplified the eclectic cross-section of the old, the young, politicians, musicians and anti-war advocates he drew together with his libertarian message. And it was difficult to find anyone who was ready to move on…

Danielle Alexandre, 33, a political analyst for the Liberty Underground radio show in Florida, said Mr. Paul’s movement was larger than the man. She, too, plans to vote for [Gary] Johnson.

On “the big issues, I don’t see a big difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama,” Ms. Alexandre said. “I’m not one to support the Republicans or support the Democrats.”

But would electing Mr. Romney advance Mr. Paul’s message at all? “No,” she said, shaking her head.

“Burn in hell before you vote for that son of a bitch,” added a man standing nearby.

***

It was Paul’s second attempt at an “alternative convention.” In 2008, he brought supporters to Minneapolis for the “Rally for the Republic.” Tucker Carlson, in his pre-Daily Caller says, emceed the proceedings. I should say: He emceed them until Jesse Ventura spoke and started talking about 9/11, which scared Carlson (and Willie Geist) the hell out of there. Gary Johnson spoke at that rally, when he was a retired politician. Now that he was a Libertarian presidential candidate, he was absent. This was a Ron Paul show, a kind of tribute, and the candidate would use it to say all the things people never let him say. “I don’t do it out of sacrifice,” said the candidate. “I do it out of self-interest. I do it because it’s good for me.”

They say “Osama bin Laden would still be alive if we listened to you,” said Paul. “You know what I say? So would the 3000 people killed on 9/11!” That, and every sticking-it-to-the-neocons comment, got huge cheers. When America’s agressive, said Paul, “it’s easier for them to kill us over there than to come over here, where the Second Amendment is alive and well.”

“I think a big part of sort of the libertarian Republican or the Ron Paul Republicans is that I think they can help the Republican Party,” he said. “There’s many places in New England as well as California where we’re not winning statewide races. It’s very difficult for Republicans to win. So I think embracing and bringing in these liberty-minded, Constitution-minded people and making them an integral part of the party is the way we might start winning races where we’re not winning races.”

From Paul’s best friend, and closest ally the other day:

Ron will never endorse a fascist warmonger for prez, nor has he ever called the Republican party “our family.” Ron, who also has brilliant political skills, was able to use the (Manson) family GOP as a platform for his radical and magnificent views.”

Floor fight: Grass-roots activists battle attempt to rig GOP convention delegate rules Updated: Party bosses offer olive branch

All of the info is on Malkin’s site and various others as well.
State Contact #’s, etc. I am trying to get the RNC Chairs #.
If anyone knows Romney’s contact #, please list.

This past Friday, the RNC’s Convention Rules Committee voted – after several contentous votes – to change the party’s rules to allow future presidential candidates to have veto power over who can be delegates from any state – in other words, take power away from the grassroots and their ability to elect fellow conservatives as delegates.

Ron Paul was being used by the RNC (RINO’s) in a false flag deal to game the conventions. It did not work it seems.

Reports are that states select the delagates.

When the convention is heal the delagates must vote on the first ballot for the canidate who won that states primary. If the delagate does not the vote does not count.

Dear Ron Paul’s,

You were over run by these anti war nuts the Democrats sent behind our lines.

Ron is now to dam old to do anything other than write books for you to re-read.

Find a new person to run, Ron is past his sell date.

Sorry but facts are just that.

He is correct on some things, but keeping this no possible win for you guys is just a fraud on you.

There’s many places in New England as well as California where we’re not winning statewide races. It’s very difficult for Republicans to win. So I think embracing and bringing in these liberty-minded, Constitution-minded people and making them an integral part of the party is the way we might start winning races where we’re not winning races.

Except the New England and California electorates have shown precisely zero interest in liberty-minded candidates. If libertarianism is the key to winning elections there, why are there no libertarian-leaning Democrats already winning there? The evidence that social conservatives are a credible voting bloc is that in Southern states both Republicans and Democrats run as social conservatives. (The difference between them being that the Democrats are all lying.) Liberals are a credible voting block because in the northeast both Republicans and Democrats run as liberals. So show me where there are Democrats running as libertarians, and then I’ll believe that libertarianism is the key to Republican victories.

Don’t get me wrong–I’m a small-L libertarian Republican myself. Of course I’d love to see more liberty-minded candidates I could support. But I have to accept the unvarnished truth, which is that libertarians are a tiny, tiny fraction of the electorate. The smartest, sexiest fraction, but a tiny fraction nevertheless.

Thanks for that. I’ve been posting some links in the headlines on the GOP’s Soul (that title is a bit much!).

http://twitchy.com/2012/08/27/establishment-vs-grass-roots-floor-fight-brewing-over-pending-rule-changes-for-delegates/

This is MM’s update at her site:

Update: 10:53pm Eastern…So here’s the upshot. As you read above in Drew’s summary, grass-roots activists revolted over Rule 15 (the delegate selection provision to be renumbered Rule 16) and Rule 12 (the power grab that would allow the RNC to make executive convention rule changes and rewrite the rules between conventions without any input/consultation with grass-roots, delegates, or state leadership on hand).

A source tells me the situation on the ground and in delegate meetings right now is “tense” and “dynamic.”

As long as the proposed Rule 12 remains in place, this “deal” or “compromise” should be a no-go. Don’t back down, activists!

The NYT seems to have the clearest summary, believe it or not, of the Rule 15/16 compromise:

Under the compromise, delegates would be selected by the state and local level without interference or control by the party’s presidential candidate. That would allow competing voices inside the convention, both sides said.

But in a nod to the concerns of Mr. Romney’s campaign, delegates sent on behalf of a candidate would be required to vote to nominate that candidate on the first ballot. If they tried to vote for someone else, their vote would be recorded for the candidate to whom they were bound.

Romney campaign, Paul supporters compromise on delegates
5:45 PM, Aug 27, 2012
*********************

The Mitt Romney campaign appears to have reached

a compromise
*************

with tea party activists and religious conservatives over a rule change
********

that activists said would have cut their influence in the Republican Party and put more power in the hands of Republican leaders.

The agreement also could head off an effort by supporters of Texas Congressman Ron Paul to cast surprise votes for their candidate. Suspicions that such a thing could happen, at least on the first ballot, have been reported in various media heading into the convention but haven’t been confirmed.

The rule change would essentially deprive the grassroots of its ability to set the party’s platform,
************************************

Sumner United for Responsible Government,

a Middle Tennessee tea party group, said in an email to its followers sent Monday. The group urged its members to contact Ryder and other rules committee members to ask them to change the proposal.

“This would take power away from the state parties and put the nominee in charge of determining your states’ delegates,” the group said.

“Some are calling this the largest power grab in Republican Party history.”
********

The compromise, reached Monday afternoon at a meeting that included Ryder, representatives for the Romney campaign and James Bopp, an Indiana committeeman

who opposed the rule change, would allow state parties to select delegates as they see fit.

But those delegates would have to vote for the candidate they purport to represent on initial ballots, and they could not sign onto any campaign to nominate another candidate on the floor until after those ballots had been cast, Ryder said.

“Frankly, the rule that was drafted is not unlike the procedure in Tennessee,” he said. “If you’re selected for Candidate X, you have to come to the convention and operate in that fashion.”

Reached on his cell phone, Bopp declined to comment, saying he wanted to inform the delegates of the agreement first.

9:12pm Eastern According to the Houston Chronicle, a “deal” has been reached on the so-called Rule 15.

Republican leaders moved Monday to quell an uprising by Texans and Ron Paul supporters that threatened to steal the spotlight from GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and expose rifts in the party right as its nominating convention got under way.

Under a compromise reached late Monday, Romney supporters and GOP leaders agreed to back down from a proposed rule change that effectively would have allowed presidential nominees to choose what delegates represent them at national conventions.

…Under the deal, delegates who are bound to a presidential candidate that hasn’t bowed out of the race or released them to vote for another contender are barred from casting a vote for a different person. During this convention, the change effectively would mean a delegate bound to Mitt Romney could not instead opt to throw his or her support behind Ron Paul, who has not freed his delegates.

Any vote for another candidate would be voided and the delegate would lose his or her position.

But under the compromise, states would still able to select individual delegates under their own laws and party rules. GOP leaders agreed to remove the rule change provision that would have allowed state-party-selected delegates to be disavowed.

Spokesmen for the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee did not respond to requests for comment.

KOOLAID- Katie P went to the U of A here in Tucson. I’ll tell you this,, TV doesn’t do her justice.

She’s smoking hot. And mega-smart. She was on Conservative radio here years ago. Still is. She didn’t forget her roots. It’s been a pleasure to see her evolve. She was a star years ago.

One wonderful gorgeous conservative young lady.

The common theme: Ron Paul could still win, if these bastards didn’t keep taking delegates away.

LOL-yes, we’ll keep our debt-based economy and allow international banking concerns to accumulate real assets through fiat currency thank you very much.

It’s not just Ron Paul supporters—that’s an ongoing mislabeling. There are Romney supporters in Tampa who are against the rule change.

There’s a proposed compromise on Rule 15/16. No word on Rule 12.

I already enjoy that privlage. ; ) I want my dang T-shirt!!! : ) I want a black one. Not a red one, not a white one, a black one. I already have a cap.

Bmore on August 27, 2012 at 11:17 PM

Ah, but that privelege could be taken away with your wanton desire to accumulate that which others have, which I think that is proundly frowned upon by those of any intellectual capacity posting on this site…

then after another speaker a man who stands for most everything Ron Paul abhors (Sen. John McCain [R-Arizona]).

Agreed. AnninCA posted her meatloaf recipes. Tesla is a pervert who never let’s us forget. His rants about Santorum were crazy and relentless.
