Quotes of the day

posted at 10:34 pm on September 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

Two platform planks sparked division at the Democratic National Convention here Wednesday…

Obama had seen the language prior to the convention, a campaign source said, but did not seek to change it until after Republicans jumped on the omissions of God and Jerusalem late Wednesday. And even then, it had to be forced through a convention hall full of delegates who nearly shouted down the change…

A senior White House said Wednesday that the platform dispute was an unfortunate stumble during this week’s convention.

***

Democratic lawmakers expressed confusion Wednesday evening over their party’s decision to omit several key pro-Israel passages from the Democratic platform, including explicit support for Jerusalem remaining the Jewish state’s capital city.

“It was silly not to include it,” Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) told the Washington Free Beacon Wednesday evening, during an event meant to honor Center for American Progress founder John Podesta, a former Clinton administration official.

***

“It’s embarrassing,” said CNN’s John King when asked for his opinion on the lack of consensus among the DNC delegates. “It took, what, three times, and even then – listening from up here – it’s hard to say that was two thirds. But he just decided enough was enough.”

King says that reporters still do not know why, and no one has told them how, it was decided that the DNC platform committee would omit language that referred to God as well as to Jerusalem being the capital of Israel. He said that Congressional Democrats panicked yesterday, knowing that Romney would make an issue of the platform in swing states with a large Jewish population like Florida.

“That was embarrassing,” King concluded.

***

Two sources also told HuffPost that officials with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the bipartisan and staunchly pro-Israel interest group known as AIPAC, had vetted the draft and signed off on its provisions.

AIPAC-linked sources later vociferously denied the report, telling reporters that the organization had initially proposed language that included Jerusalem as the capital, and that their officials never reviewed the “full Middle East platform.”

The source informed on the internal party deliberations said the latest change to reinsert the Jerusalem language was made in order to calm the controversy, not to change the intent of the passage.

***

In the last few elections, the parties’ platforms have not differed vastly when it came to Israel. In 2000, both opposed a unilateral declaration of independence by the Palestinians, pledged to support Israel’s qualitative military edge, and took a pro-Israel line on Jerusalem. “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths,” the Democrats urged, while the GOP argued that “The United States has a moral and legal obligation to maintain its Embassy and Ambassador in Jerusalem.”…

Wednesday afternoon’s move by besieged Democrats to add Jerusalem language to their platform is better than a refusal to do so. But who can believe this is an act of principle rather than a desperate effort to avoid the criticism that has fallen on their heads?

For Israel and its supporters, the drama over the 2012 Democratic Party platform can only arouse new worries about the direction of American policy.

***

Let the paranoia begin. For the professional alarmists who see an all-powerful Israel lobby lurking behind every bush, rock, and cloud, today’s debacle is a goldmine. What could be a greater demonstration of the Israel Lobby’s dangerous subversion of American democracy than the sham vote at the Democratic National Convention that saw pro-Israel language shoved into the party platform over the heads of party delegates?

The reality of the situation, however, is both more interesting and more frightening than intrepid Zionist-spotters would have you believe. Today, America got an unvarnished look at the Democratic Party’s internal conflict on Israel. Half of the Party represents the pro-Israel consensus in America. The other half? Not so much. For all the talk about the unrecognizably extreme new Republican Party, it’s the Democrats whose fringe has quietly made deep inroads into the center — especially when it concerns Israel — and fundamentally altered the nature of the Party.

***

The two parties have spent much of the past two weeks eliminating all remaining reasons for the continued existence of national conventions.

Democrats this afternoon joined Republicans in finally ending the pretense that conventions are democratic gatherings where delegates have power…

So these are festivals and pep rallies. Why they should get federal subsidies and huge floods of media attention is beyond me. Maybe this year’s snafus will finally convince the world to dial back the conventions.

***

“The president and his party have now changed their position. They now say that they’re not certain what the capital of Israel might be,” Romney said. “I find that one more example of Israel being thrown under the bus by the president. I think it’s a very sad day.”…

“When we have our best friend in the Middle East, a nation which shares our values, a nation now under extraordinary threat and distress when nations around it like Syria and Egypt are going through tumult of their own, for us at a stage like this, to take an action of that nature, to cease calling Jerusalem the capital of Israel — this is a very troubling development and I think one which will be recognized for what it is by people across America and across the world,” Romney added.

Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …When I walk through CPAC or a I travel the United States to meet people in the Tea Party who care – black, white, gay, and straight – anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker.And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with [a certain] candidate, more than shame on you! You’re on the other side!”

Indeed it sucks big time.

Most important election in our lives but we have the choice between two Democrats. A real one and another posing as a Republican.

I have provided the links. I provided the facts. You do not like them so what.

Obama will expose them. Obama will use them.

I am just the messenger. We are screwed by the GOP is very very true. The GOP is a dictatorship at this point as Priebus will not follow the rules and changes them at his whim just like Obama as President.

But all is hardly lost. The Presidential that is lost. Obama will win most likely in a landslide. But Conservative Republicans will win nationwide. The Tea Party will get stronger. After Mitt loses Priebus will be in for a rude awakening. The Tea Party will be hopping mad and hold no punches blaming Romney and Priebus. The Tea Party will own the GOP. GOD will be on their side they will win the fight. Obama will not survive his second term.

It just amazes me that RomBots are really put off by suggesting Obama be impeached. Romney should be running on impeaching him after all that is allowed after a President leaves office.

Really? Here’s one in return:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: There are so many people that simply don’t think that they are better off than they were 4 years ago. How do you convince them that they are?

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: “WELL, I DON’T THINK THAT THEY ARE BETTER OFF THAN THEY WERE 4 YEARS AGO.

And, Americans agree with him…

“Only 31 percent of voters believe the nation is in ‘better condition,’ while 15 percent say it is ‘about the same,’ the poll found. Just 40 percent of voters said Obama deserves reelection.”

- The Hill, 4 September 2012

* Unemployment: 7.8% Jan 2009, 8.3% now. Hell, the unemployment rate was 8.3% in February 2009 when Obama signed his nearly $1 trillion Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Stimulus Act of 2009, but before ONE, SINGLE PENNY of it was spent.

* Median income: $54,983 then, $50,964 now

* Gas prices: $1.85 per gallon then, $3.78 now

* National debt: $10.6 trillion then, $16 trillion now

* Labour force participation rate: 65.7% then, 63.7% now

I mean, that statement ALONE isn’t doing you favors, but lets play along.

If you think Romney is worse, BUT you “hate” Obama, then you had another candidate in mind…*yawn* …which smells alot like the Paulnuts/Johnszzz crowd has soiled their diapers again about losing (big time!) at the RNC convention.

OR, you really hate Romney more than Obama, but you’re too chicken to admit you’ll vote for Obama anyway.

If Romney wins (don’t read too much into the IF, being realistic) the WH, and the country DOESN’T collapse financially, will you still be complaining?

If Obama wins, and the country DOES turn into a fully owned subsidiary of NORINCO due to our tripling down on borrowed $$$ from China and the expanding (57) welfare states, who will YOU blame then?

Idiot.

Article II, Section 4:

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other High crimes and Misdemeanors.

Impeachment only allows for REMOVAL from office. If a politician is already out of office, impeaching him would serve what purpose exactly?

If he was convicted in the Senate after he leaves office, the only thing that it would result in would be a prohibition on holding any federal office in the future. A conviction requires 67 Senators…in other words, IT AIN’T HAPPENING AND YOU ARE A BLOODY IDIOT.

Reality called. Said that the Democrats had a former president who was impeached speaking on their dais tonight. Remember that, because judging by the polls that man pulls in America largely doesn’t. Impeachment without removal is absolutely meaningless and no one is smoking enough substances of any kind to think that the Republicans would win enough seats in the Senate to remove an impeached President Obama should Congress get enough votes somehow from office.

So if your goal is just to feel schadenfreude (not Schadenfreude)about saying Obama was impeached that could happen. If you want to see him removed from office though Nov 6th is the only realistic chance of that happening before 2017 when he’d leave after his second term.

I also tend to disagree with the notion you have that somehow Social Issues matter this election cycle. I think that Democrats having bet on this also is pure folly. It’s the economy, stupid. Obama’s favorables are going down with women, not up. It’s not to say it’s backfiring, it’s just that social issues aren’t really on the radar of most of the electorate. You’re wasting time on it just like the left.

Corporal Tunnel on September 6, 2012 at 12:32 AM

My only point was Romney is showing his true self already.

Obama will not use social issues. Obama will use Mitts words against Mitt. That is by far the most effective attack. But it is best used much closer to the election. I would expect he will start in October. For now Obama just want to bide his time. Keep Romney off balance. Obama will serve commercial after commercial telling conservatives Mitt is not one of them. Mitt loses conservatives he loses. Obama does not need a single conservative. All Obama needs to do to win is show America the real Mitt Romney.

From Daily Caller:

Gov. Sununu predicts Romney’s campaign will ‘carpet bomb’ Obama with ads

The RNC held a conference call today with former Gov. John Sununu, a top Romney campaign surrogate who is utterly quotable.

“I love to criticize campaigns,” he harrumphed, when asked if Romney’s campaign would be aggressive enough. “This campaign, as I watched it through the primaries, had discipline and spent its money aggressively and tough at exactly the right time, step by step.”

“If I had to give you my own personal technical term for what they’re going to do,” he said — “They’re going to carpet bomb them.”

Answering a follow-up question regarding his “carpet bomb” comment, Sununu noted: “[Romney's campaign was] smart enough to hoard their cash. They are now sitting here with $60 million more than the Obama campaign — and a group of friendly PACs out there with an even bigger difference in money…they saved their money. They are targeting…I don’t know…my guess is they’re targeting between 12-15 states.”

Listen to audio of the call here.

I haven’t been around much today so please forgive me if this has already been posted, but have ya’ll heard that Romney’s being blackmailed?

Flora Duh on September 6, 2012 at 12:53 AM

The GOP Establishment of course. They are to blame for this horrible candidate.

Nope. YOU are to blame for the “Horrible Candidate”.

If you couldn’t even convince enough members of *your* own party/platform to put up someone as a candidate that could, you know…like WIN the nomination, then doesn’t make your party/platform, frankly irrelevant?

Sucks, but a fact of Life; if you are as Conservative as you say, is that it wasn’t going to be handed to you, you EARN it.

Deal with it, and move on.

I have far more confidence in Congress than you do.

They can stop Obama if they have the balls to do so.

I’ve always had faith in Congress in doing its job, IF we get leaders to lead them. For instance, The Senate has never passed a budget in 4 years…the President is the leader of that political party, so why hasn’t he whipped them into shape?

Oh wait, didn’t his party vote DOWN his budget proposals every year it was submitted? ..And what party controls the Senate again?

For now John Bonehead is Obamas best friend. He protects Obama.

:eyeroll:…Okay, you sold me on THAT one, let me tell you.

With more conservatives in Congress John will lose his speakership.

Well, that sure as hell aint going to happen if you cant even convince enough people to *not* nominate Romney.

Then Obama actually will be investigated. Holder and many others will be arrested for contempt and obstruction of justice. The press will be unable to suppress the corruption that is Obama any longer just like they could not suppress the vote tonight.

Steveangell on September 6, 2012 at 12:35 AM

I repeat, if you can’t even convince people to vote for *your* ideal candidate, I seriously doubt you’ll be able to get them to vote for impeachment…even IF they deserve it.

Leave that kind of talk for the professionals. Not saying they don’t deserve it, but when you put it that way, i just see another fiasco around the corner…al la the Clinton Impeachment trial.

It just amazes me that RomBots are really put off by suggesting Obama be impeached. Romney should be running on impeaching him after all that is allowed after a President leaves office.

Steveangell on September 6, 2012 at 12:22 AM

There is no point in refuting every one of your fantasies or elaborating on the nightmare consequences of having Barry in for a second. But let take your last one.

There will not be 2/3 votes in the senate to impeach Barry unless he was actually caught and convicted in the cocaine struggling ring along with Hugo. But if assume that there were enough votes, you want to have SloJoe as president?
