Quotes of the day

posted at 10:43 pm on September 10, 2012 by Allahpundit

Mitt Romney and his top aides are running an essentially faith-based campaign. Whatever the polls say at the moment, whatever the pundits say, whatever some nervous Republicans say, Team Romney simply does not believe President Obama can win re-election in today’s terrible economy. The president may appear to be defying gravity now, but he can’t keep it up through Nov. 6…

This is a true test of Romney’s resolve. He’s like the pilot of a plane rolling down the runway for takeoff. There’s a tree line at the end of the runway that he has to clear. He’s sure he’ll make it. He’s gaining speed, getting some lift, but he’s still not high enough, and at about three-quarters down the runway, a lot of passengers are getting scared. Does Romney keep going according to plan, confident he’ll clear the trees when the time comes? Or does he try some last-minute maneuver?

***

“The net result of both conventions is that President Obama has established a lead that is outsized against where he has typically been against Romney,” said Steve Schmidt, GOP nominee John McCain’s top political adviser in 2008. “When you get behind in a race where there are as few [persuadable] voters as there are in this one, the chances and opportunities to make up ground become more and more difficult.”

Of the conventions, he added, “The numbers didn’t break the way you wanted.”

***

One day after the Democratic convention ended here, and a week after the Republican convention wrapped up in Tampa, and American politics is basically all tied up. Here’s the top line on Real Clear Politics 60 days before November 6: The RCP average for the presidential race shows a dead heat (Obama +0.7 percentage points), the Senate is 46-46 with 8 tossups, and the generic congressional ballot is tied…

“I don’t think one statistic popping up on a Friday during this campaign is going to be monumental,” said Ryan, the day before yet another rotten jobs report came out. “People in their gut know that we’re on the wrong track in this country. They know that the president is going hard left. This is not a Bill Clinton Democrat, and I think people know that. So I just don’t think some statistic that comes out on any given day is going to be the primary motivator of this campaign. I think the die is cast, the trajectory is set, and the choice of the two futures is clear. We just have to make it even more clear, and we have to go to the country and ask them for permission to fix this mess.”

***

The economy isn’t the No. 1 issue, despite what people say. The more I watch of this election, the more I incline toward this last explanation.

True, when asked to rank issues, voters mostly put the economy at the top of the list. And yet when asked to make a choice between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, their choices don’t seem to be economically based

For many women, the suspicion that banning abortion, if not contraception too, would be item No. 1 on the Romney-Ryan to-do list trumps all other considerations. The Obama campaign played this card with great success over the summer, with more than a little help from Rep. Todd Akin.

Or maybe, just maybe, this election is boiling down to a contest between white non-Hispanic men and everyone else. After all the high hopes of 2008, it will be depressing if that is the outcome of the Obama presidency: an electorate split along the dividing lines of race and sex.

***

1. President Obama’s numbers were mired at or below 47 percent nationwide and the key swing states, despite the fact that he is universally known and has been running many ads to develop a lead…

5. After the convention bounce fades and after pollsters shift to likely voter screens, we should see a tightening of the race, and with it an adjustment of the conventional wisdom.

6. In terms of the national polling, Romney has regularly been even or ahead of Obama in the registered voter polls conducted by ABC News/Washington Post, Gallup and CBS News/New York Times. It stands to reason that if these polls had been likely voter instead of likely voter polls, he would have had a small national lead…

Obviously, all of this could change. Historically speaking, convention bounces tend to be exactly that – bounces that fade over time. Romney enjoyed a modest bounce, and so far it looks like Obama is enjoying a 4-point bounce or so. My instincts tell me that by the time of the debates, we will be back to precisely where we were in August – both candidates essentially tied and stuck 3-5 points below 50 percent. Time will tell.

***

Romney’s convention speech did not change the unfavorable stability of the campaign. Romney softened his image through biography; he did not broaden his appeal with unexpected outreach. There were no innovative policy initiatives directed toward Hispanics or suburban women. The speech was humanizing but ideologically uncreative.

With less than two months until the election, Romney is left with dwindling opportunities to reshape the dynamic of the race. This places extraordinary pressure on him in the presidential debates that commence on Oct. 3. He was an able debater during the Republican primaries. Obama is a weaker debater than his reputation — often professorial and elliptical. But Romney has the harder task. He must do more than hold his own. He will need to shake and shift public attitudes. And it is not easy to be aggressive during a debate without appearing overbearing or desperate.

This analysis requires an admission. Obama’s political strategy has generally worked.

***

I would offer this warning to my comrades. Under unbelievably intense questioning from yours truly on BeastTV, Obama Super-PAC honcho Bill Burton melted down and acknowledged (or, under normal questioning, Burton said) that the bulk of the undecided vote consists of non-college-educated whites and tilts female. That ain’t exactly Hussein’s demographic, kids

That demographic overall went 58 to 40 for McCain last time. Given that these people are still undecided, it stands to reason that they’re less anti-Obama than that. But one still must assume that these voters tumble 54 to 46 for Romney, or 53 to 47, something like that. So it’ll depend on how far ahead Obama is as Election Day nears. And of course we have the debates. A ways to go yet.

***

The Romney campaign made the extraordinary decision to not try seriously to connect their candidate with voters on a personal level until their convention. As dubious as that decision was, they were rewarded by having a convention shortened by a day due to a hurricane, then compounded the error of waiting until the convention by putting much of what was most needed to be seen in the 8 and 9 p.m. hours, when the only viewers would be C-SPAN fans. Wow! The biographical film and the testimonials of people whose lives had been touched by Romney were powerful, necessary, and largely unseen. Instead, the Romney campaign treated them to the Clint Eastwood debacle and a serviceable speech by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida that should have been made earlier, not chewing up precious broadcast airtime. At the 10-11 p.m. hour, abbreviated personal testimonies and the film introducing Romney’s own speech—which was quite good—would have made for an extraordinary hour of television and very likely have done him a lot of good with voters.

As a result of all of this, while voters are quite open to firing Obama, they remain quite reticent about Romney. Debates can and have been critical, but they work better for candidates who need to demonstrate that they are smart and knowledgeable, tests Romney met and passed long ago; debates are tougher venues for demonstrating empathy and developing trust.

This is a very close race and one that still could go either way. But the odds of Romney capitalizing on this economy, and the opportunity it affords, seem lower than they were before the conventions. If Republicans and Romney supporters are growing nervous, they should be.

***

There’s no doubt whatsoever that the Democratic convention was far less successful than the Republican convention. Obama’s speech was a dud and the floor fight over God and Jerusalem was the biggest convention debacle of my lifetime. Immediately following these two events, you then had the release of a disastrous jobs report…

On the flip-side, Romney had a smooth convention, did what he needed to do, and gave a very good convention speech. But what the media did was to grab Clint Eastwood’s speech as a distraction tool. This isn’t Eastwood’s or anyone’s fault; if the media wouldn’t have used Clint, they would’ve used something else. Regardless, the media’s plan was to find something — anything! — to distract from Romney’s message and drive into the ground that the RNC convention was a flop.

In summation: Obama’s bad speech, the Democratic convention floor booing God, and the terrible jobs numbers were given about three hours worth of coverage until the launch of the Inevitability Narrative was coordinated, a narrative that lives on today. Whereas the manufactured Clint Proves Romney’s An Incompetent Boob Narrative still lives on 10 days later…

Don’t you see? It’s all a ploy, a con, a hustle — it’s all about turning a fabricated reality into a real reality by bumming out conservatives — by killing our fight, our willingness to volunteer and turn out.

***

Romney still has the debates, millions and millions of dollars in TV ads and weeks of campaigning to try to turn things around. But he faces the immediate threat of both quiet and loud we-told-you-so’s from Republicans who last year had the very worries they fear are being manifested now. Romney is an awkward, unlikable candidate. The author of Romneycare is ill positioned to attack Obamacare. And Romney’s shifting positions make him an easy mark for an aggressive White House.

Until Romney breaks this cycle, he is in danger of living out the Haley Barbour dictum: in politics, bad gets worse. Super PACs might start shifting their money from the presidential race to save the House majority and look to pick up Senate seats. Romney’s own fundraising will take a hit. Stories about Romney pulling up stakes in Michigan and other ostensible battlegrounds will add to the death stench. And there will be an avalanche of suggestions and second-guessing from pundits and Republican operatives and politicians about Romney’s tactics, strategy and staff.

Although women should have not been given the Right to vote that is not ever in our lifetimes going to change.

They base their votes mostly on emotion. At least a large portion of women. Education does not change that generally.

That said I personally believe that a Man should be married to a woman to be able to vote as well. Though a Widower should be able to vote. I think a man needs the woman’s perspective.

But that is just my meaningless perspective.

Now make fun of me.

I would never propose the law be changed nor vote for that change anyway.

WaPo/ABC poll (9/7 to 9/9)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/page/2010-2019/WashingtonPost/2012/09/11/National-Politics/Polling/release_126.xml

Maybe not so much for Steveangell and gumbypoked.

bayview on September 11, 2012 at 1:06 AM

Yes, I just saw this and its very good news. This poll is +6 democrats (among likely voters) AND taken over the weekend, and yet despite that Obama only leads by 1%.

Now its possible this is an outlier, but I don’t think so. The sample is fairly decently sized, and the numbers are fairly consistent with most pre-convention polls we’ve seen. Obama’s gotten a bump in likability, and a slight bump in job approval, but he still lags behind Romney substantially on economic issues.

Additionally, this poll shows that Romney voters are STILL more enthusiastic about voting, even after the democratic convention.

Finally, this poll DOES break down what the numbers would look like if it were counting registered voters, and if were counting all adults. To get numbers like Gallop and Rassmussen, you have to go to the registered voters column.

This tells me that Rasmussen is indeed not doing a very good job filtering out likely voters from registered voters. To be fair, its still early, and pollsters are going to be refining their filters and getting more accurate as they close towards election day, but that means that Rasmussen probably doesn’t get really accurate until near election day.

So, not a perfect poll, which is what you’d expect from ABC/Washington post, but better than a lot of the garbage polls we’ve seen lately.

Oh, one final thought. The post convention bump in this poll looks a lot more like the bump we’ve seen in individual state polls. Take that however you’d like, it could mean several things.

But that is just my meaningless perspective.

Yes.

Now make fun of me.

I would, but I might have figured you out. You are ordering things the way you think they should be, like an architect or a writer. You are only somewhat interested in the way things actually are.

In this, I think you are making a mistake. The way things actually are is not the result of thoughtlessness or lack of ideological rigor; it is only what has been possible in real life. People have daydreamed just like you are daydreaming for a long time, and proselyted, and worked, and this is the result. I’m saying complete disregard for the structure in front of us would be, at least, unwise. But your insistence on attending to your own model, the one you are trying to create for yourself, helps to explain how you can be so obstinate about the real world.

You can’t have your model. Not in this life, and you will probably abandon it in the life to come. So what’s it worth? It has value, since it helps you organize your philosophy. How much? As much as you’ve been giving it?

I would never propose the law be changed nor vote for that change anyway.

I don’t understand. Why compromise that?

Society needs to change first. It needs to change back to where it was before GOD was killed by Justice Black in 1946.

Only then would changing the law on voting make sense.

America was founded “One Nation under GOD” Now it is just One Nation. I would say under Satan.

We need to find GOD again that has to come first.

For now few men are honorable. Thus it would not be fair to take away the vote from women that are more honorable than men on average.

Steveangell on September 11, 2012 at 1:14 AM

He’s a Massachusetts Liberal who, like the Kennedy’s and the Kerry’s, love to make money. The making money part will always cover up RINO tendencies in the minds of most of the Republican electorate. Republican voters would most likely vote in a candidate who is publicly an avowed Marxist, but, hey, if the guy’s rich and a successful businessman, most simply will overlook the Commie stuff or not believe it.

Our electorate is just as dopey as the true Liberals who can overlook their Dem leadership ripping off the American people left and right, but if they talk about helping the poor enough, the criminality is ignored.

I find it amusing that both sides always think that it’s the other party ripping them off, when in reality it’s both. It’s all in how the taxes are apportioned and how the books are cooked. I prefer Republicans because at least with them businesses may actually prosper creating more opportunities for the rest of us. We’ll never actually get the real prosperity our Forefathers envisioned, but it’s better than nothing.

Charles G. Koch: Corporate Cronyism Harms America

While the article is very good I have gotten the impression, perhaps mistaken, that the Koch brothers were bankrolling Romney, the mastermind behind the crony Romneycare mandate. Criticizing cronyism in the WSJ is not fair recompense to America for their bankrolling a crony politician who is a threat to our freedom and liberty. Still, a great article, but they should put their money where their mouths are and support Gary Johnson.

Romney wins he destroys the Republican Party completely. There will be no chance of fixing the Republican Party it will be gone forever.

Thus the Tea Party will have to start mostly from scratch. Unlikely they could get their feet off the ground quick enough to stop the US from becoming a Marxist State.

He loses and most likely the Tea Party will take over and fix the Republican Party with GOD’s help. It will not be easy. It will only be possible with GOD’s help. But he will help us.

After all this time was foretold in the scriptures. America is not to be involved in the rule of the AntiChrist IMHO. Only GOD really knows I fully understand. I am making no special claim of knowledge. GOD is the only one who knows when the AntiChrist is going to come. I just fear it is very soon.

I do know though that GOD brought about this country and he will save it if enough pray for him to do so.

Steve’, how in the blessed hang am I supposed to react to that?

I’ll start here: Mitt Romney WILL NOT destroy the Republican Party.

As a Christian Believer there is NOTHING about the Anti-Christ (or the End Times) for you to be afraid of.

But if I can’t talk you out of it, then you’ll just have to live “in torment”. I don’t know what else to do, except pray for you.

listens2glenn on September 11, 2012 at 1:44 AM

i beginning to understand why barry/axe/leftist media are scared to death.

both the cnn and abc/wapo showed mitt crushing barry in independents.

no wonder axe had to threaten gallup to get the black respondents a higher weight. no wonder we have these polling fiascoes

so, in the end it all comes down to turnout (well, i’m shocked). the left is drumming their people up something fierce. one of the things i saw in the cnn poll was the extra high number of likely voters/adults. so i’ll wager that the left/dims are saying hell yeah to anyone who asks…but come nov, cold, raining, lines..those icky lines…maybe not so much

but we know this…at this point…indies pro mitt by 10. i’m getting optimistic at this point

…of course, akin is a different story

Do not know. God does.

It really bothers me that Mitt tested nearly every issue in Mass before Obama did it at the Federal Level. Obama is an idiot he is not the actual President Valery may be but I sometimes wonder if Mitt is actually running this. He definitely has the brains to do it.

One thing for sure.

Mitt Romney scares me to death. If he does win I will really be afraid for America and the world.

Steveangell on September 11, 2012 at 1:46 AM

Romney wins he destroys the Republican Party completely. There will be no chance of fixing the Republican Party it will be gone forever.

Thus the Tea Party will have to start mostly from scratch. Unlikely they could get their feet off the ground quick enough to stop the US from becoming a Marxist State.

He loses and most likely the Tea Party will take over and fix the Republican Party with GOD’s help. It will not be easy. It will only be possible with GOD’s help. But he will help us.

After all this time was foretold in the scriptures. America is not to be involved in the rule of the AntiChrist IMHO. Only GOD really knows I fully understand.

With the original Boston Tea Party, there was a whole world of opportunities laying before those men, and they damn well knew it.

But look around us now…it’s not the same. Our opportunities are being siphoned off by crooks who have been busy rigging the system in their favor for at least 150 years now. They’re also selling off our country and our collective wealth to foreigners so they can profit personally. That’s a downside of Capitalism. Won’t even go into the complicity of the Marxists in all this.

Like I said this is not personal. GOD answers prayers in his own GODly way we can not understand.

To me do not vote for Romney work against Romney.

As different as those two are they could in some way bring us both closer to GOD in the end. That is what matters to GOD.

Mitt Romney scares you to death!? Dude, the mans idea of a good time is drinking chocolate milk for crying out loud. Sure he may belong to an odd little religion, but he seems to lead a faithful life perfectly consistent with the mainstream Christianities basic concept of morality.

You are right that I don’t know, that only God REALLY knows. However, the reverse holds true, you don’t know, and typically one would give somebody the benefit of the doubt. The doubt being quite significant in this case.

Besides that, running around yelling, “Mitt Romney is the anti-christ,” isn’t really a compelling argument, for anything.

I have no idea who the Anti Christ is my best guess the Pope. But that is all it is. I would not bet on that. It could also be Putin. Or Soros I have no real clue. GOD only knows.

I think if Romney is involved he would most likely be a false prophet. I really do not know why he scares me so much. Maybe because I know he should not be President yet he is a member of the LDS Church I believe will be the Church GOD will use in his second coming.

Relax. It will settle down and we’ll get a good pre-debate picture from Rasmussen by the end of Sept.

Voting again for Obama is like a dog eating its own sh*t.

With this economy, Romney can win this, although he has to hammer home and provide an alternative vision and emphasize turnaround.

KirknBurker on September 11, 2012 at 2:06 AM

World War II wasn’t quite the foregone conclusion while it was happening. Americans then hadn’t seen all the documentaries we have, to them there was a real danger of eventual conquest by a totalitarian enemy and two vying for the chance.

Yet we won by not letting the setbacks and doubt distract us from the tasks at hand, and not letting anything divide us and cause infighting.

This crowd couldn’t have won WWII. A bad week in the polls and you are ready to soil yourselves, concede, and go have a good cry. Well, Nancy, that ain’t the way you win elections or wars.

Of course, in addition to the fainthearted, there are also the psychotics like stevie.

^^^^
This is the main point. Any other election cycle, the talking heads at ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and MSNBC would be talking up how the independents are lining against the GOP candidate. The silence is deafening. The fact that the polls they commission overestimate Democrats and under-sample Republicans and Independents to arrive at Obama ahead (and JUST outside the margin of error) is enough to tell us not only are they in the tank for Obama, but Axelrod is holding many people’s sealed divorce records as well.

Jurisprudence on September 11, 2012 at 3:03 AM

Steveangell on September 11, 2012 at 2:03 AM

My heart goes out to you. You seem so troubled.

Steve, sometimes you just need to TRUST in God. He is in control. We can try and do what we feel is the best, and we always strive to do what is right and good, but He is in charge. God after all decides what happens. For some reason God decided we needed to have Obama for our president. Whether it was to wake up the country and call Americans back to Him, or if America’s time has come and gone, we don’t know. Only God knows. But it has become apparent that God wants our choice to be either Romney or Obama. I have known quite a few Mormons and I really think there is nothing to fear. They are a good people. And at the very least Romney believes in God. That is what should be most important.

This also brings me to some thoughts on the subject of 9/11. There is evil in this world and God allows evil things to happen so that people will remember Him. Remember how the whole country was awakened after 9/11? Our president at the time, George W. Bush, was a God fearing man and many times asked God for comfort and guidance. There was a reason why God chose him to be a president at such a time.

Remember at the DNC convention when they booed God three times? That was meant too. I am not saying that the Dems are all a Godless people but that happened for a reason. A wake-up call for some, maybe?

All I am really trying to say is that you just need to trust in God. He always does things in His own time for a reason.

AZgranny on September 11, 2012 at 3:10 AM

Punchenko on September 11, 2012 at 3:37 AM

Talk about the silly season. Polls are the new squirrels, and the pundits are stirring up dirt, desperate to be relevant. Anyone who has lived through Reagan knows how this is going to turn out. It’s time for the grown-ups to take charge.

John the Libertarian on September 11, 2012 at 3:57 AM

With Obama’s bounce already starting to fade faster than many imagined it would, we will start seeing the recently-energized MOBY’s and the self-obsessed, so-called TruCons (who care more about being able to scream “told you so!” than they care about the country) slink back into the shadows. I expect polls to settle back to numbers similar to pre-convention standings by the end of NEXT week. The Sarah Palin-worshiping fanatics (no, not talking about all Palin supporters), who don’t want any Republican not named Palin to be elected and who also deserve particular scorn this week, once again revealed their true selves in gleefully trashing Mitt and in trumpeting Obama’s temporary post-convention bounce, after smelling Republican blood in the water.

We’re reminded of the quote, “when there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.” Well, we have plenty of enemies within, so to speak, in the form of so-called conservatives who, for various reasons and to the Obama campaign’s delight, make a point to try to foster Republican in-fighting and also distrust for our stellar Romney/Ryan ticket.

Am also disappointed to see people like Laura Ingraham resort to hysterical comments (“shut the GOP down!”) in order to generate some headlines for themselves. This was the same Laura Ingraham who, during the Dem convention last week, boldly predicted a NEGATIVE bounce towards Romney. Some of these pundits and column writers seem unable to look at the bigger picture and appear to forget what they were saying just a few days ago. Their memories don’t seem to extend beyond the most recent cable news cycle and they are so willing to follow the pundit swarm and repeat the Obama media talking points about Romney supposedly not being “likeable” and about how the Romney campaign is supposedly in serious trouble. It’s all garbage, and I think we put too much stock into what a lot of these people say.

Now would be a great time to express appreciation for sane, sober commentators like Ed Morrissey, who resist the fashionable urge to descend into hysterics and rash doomsday predictions. Ed Morrissey provides solid analysis of poll numbers, far beyond what many (including our own Allahpundit, sad to say) put out the effort to do. We don’t see Ed constantly injecting his own persona into his commentary (as Allahpundit sometimes does, to distracting effect) or merely rehashing what celebrity pundits are saying on any given day; instead, Ed empowers us with facts and his reasoned analysis. Thank you, Ed Morrissey!

Although women should have not been given the Right to vote that is not ever in our lifetimes going to change.

They base their votes mostly on emotion. At least a large portion of women. Education does not change that generally.

That said I personally believe that a Man should be married to a woman to be able to vote as well. Though a Widower should be able to vote. I think a man needs the woman’s perspective.

But that is just my meaningless perspective.

Now make fun of me.

I would never propose the law be changed nor vote for that change anyway.

Another ABC poll. I saw this linked at Yahoo this a.m. The first paragraph says:

Barack Obama has emerged from the nominating conventions in his best position against Mitt Romney since spring, a 50-44 percent race among registered voters in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. But Romney recovers to a virtual dead heat among those most likely to vote, keeping the contest between them wide open.

the DOJ and WH lawsuit against gallup for showing good Romney numbers just has to be exposed over and over again so the voter is reminded about the intimidating tactics BO is trying to use to suppress our turnout and votes.

‘We Stand Tall For Piece And Freedom’
*************************************

7:07 AM EDT, Tuesday September 11, 2012

Mitt Romney noted those who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and thanked American troops for keeping the country safe in a statement marking the anniversary of the attacks Tuesday.

“Eleven years ago, evil descended upon our country, taking thousands of lives in an unspeakable attack against innocents. America will never forget those who perished. America will never stop caring for the loved ones they left behind. And America shall remain ever vigilant against those who would do us harm. Today we again extend our most profound gratitude to our brave troops who have gone into battle, some never to return, so that we may live in peace. On this most somber day, those who would attack us should know that we are united, one nation under God, in our determination to stop them and to stand tall for peace and freedom at home and across the world.”

Whose Neglect Ushered in 9/11? Not Bush
by David Frum Sep 11, 2012 6:00 AM EDT
***************************************

Did the Bush administration neglect actionable information on the 9/11 terror plot before the attacks?

In the New York Times today, Kurt Eichenwald presses the old argument that Bush did.

The C.I.A. repeated the warnings in the briefs that followed. Operatives connected to Bin Laden, one reported on June 29, expected the planned near-term attacks to have “dramatic consequences,” including major casualties. On July 1, the brief stated that the operation had been delayed, but “will occur soon.” Some of the briefs again reminded Mr. Bush that the attack timing was flexible, and that, despite any perceived delay, the planned assault was on track.

================================================

National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States
***************************************************************

“THE SYSTEM WAS BLINKING RED”

8.1 THE SUMMER OF THREAT

As 2001 began, counterterrorism officials were receiving frequent but fragmentary reports about threats. Indeed, there appeared to be possible threats almost everywhere the United States had interests-including at home.

To understand how the escalation in threat reporting was handled in the summer of 2001, it is useful to understand how threat information in general is collected and conveyed. Information is collected through several methods, including signals intelligence and interviews of human sources, and gathered into intelligence reports. Depending on the source and nature of the reporting, these reports may be highly classified-and therefore tightly held-or less sensitive and widely disseminated to state and local law enforcement agencies. Threat reporting must be disseminated, either through individual reports or through threat advisories. Such advisories, intended to alert their recipients, may address a specific threat or be a general warning.

Because the amount of reporting is so voluminous, only a select fraction can be chosen for briefing the president and senior officials. During 2001, Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet was briefed regularly regarding threats and other operational information relating to Usama Bin Ladin.1 He in turn met daily with President Bush, who was briefed by the CIA through what is known as the President’s Daily Brief (PDB). Each PDB consists of a series of six to eight relatively short articles or briefs covering a broad array of topics; CIA staff decides which subjects are the most important on any given day. There were more than 40 intelligence articles in the PDBs from January 20 to September 10, 2001, that related to Bin Ladin. The PDB is considered highly sensitive and is distributed to only a handful of high-level officials.2

The Senior Executive Intelligence Brief (SEIB), distributed to a broader group of officials, has a similar format and generally covers the same subjects as the PDB. It usually contains less information so as to protect sources and methods. Like their predecessors, the Attorney General, the FBI Director, and Richard Clarke, the National Security Council (NSC) counterterrorism coordinator, all received the SEIB, not the PDB.3 Clarke and his staff had extensive access to terrorism reporting, but they did not have access to internal, nondisseminated information at the National Security Agency (NSA), CIA, or FBI.

hillsoftx on September 11, 2012 at 7:11 AM

Truer words have nevah been spoken………..

This is a true test of Romney’s resolve. He’s like the pilot of a plane rolling down the runway for takeoff. There’s a tree line at the end of the runway that he has to clear. He’s sure he’ll make it. He’s gaining speed, getting some lift, but he’s still not high enough, and at about three-quarters down the runway, a lot of passengers are getting scared. Does Romney keep going according to plan, confident he’ll clear the trees when the time comes? Or does he try some last-minute maneuver?

.
Hewitt’s response to ByYork’s analogy above was that he would rather go with the trained pilot to get the job done vs. paying attention to the passengers in the “Chattering class” who want an emergency maneuver.

Super Mitt has wings.
