Quotes of the day

posted at 10:53 pm on September 19, 2012 by Allahpundit

“The last several years you’ve seen greater and greater divisiveness in this country,” said the GOP hopeful. “We had hoped to come back together. But instead you’ve seen us pull apart. And politics has driven us apart in some respects. So my campaign is about the 100 percent of America. And I’m concerned about them. I’m concerned about the fact that over the last four years life has become harder for Americans.”

Romney didn’t explicitly reference his now-famous comments about “the 47 percent,” but he sought to draw a difference between targeting potential supporters and wanting to help the entire country.

“I know I’m not going to get 100 percent of the vote, And my campaign will focus on those people we think we can bring in to support me,” he said. “But this is a campaign about helping people who need help, and right now the people who are poor in this country need help getting out of poverty, the people in the middle-class need help because their incomes have gone down every year for the last four years.”

***

What I explained to them and what I think the media misses is that many of the people the media would claim Mitt Romney described as “victims’ weren’t who Mitt Romney was speaking about. And those people intrinsically know it. They may technically fall into the category Mitt Romney described as government dependent victims, but they know he’s not talking about them. He’s talking about the people they also are talking about.

But more than that, and this is really what the left and media miss, a fair number of those people in the 47% are not there by choice. They are there by Barack Obama’s economic policies. And they absolutely understand that Barack Obama’s policies got them there. All they need to hear from Mitt Romney is that he really does get it and really will fix the problem, not just manage the decline of the nation as his primary opponents claimed he would.

That off the cuff, off the record talk was what they needed to hear. Mitt Romney recognizes we have a problem with government dependency, as do a majority of Americans. But more importantly, Mitt Romney will improve the lives of that 47% by growing the private sector, not redistributing pieces of the economic pie.

***

There will always be some who for whatever reason find themselves dependent on the charity of others. But when half the population is along for the ride, the system becomes dangerously out of balance. Things fall apart.

This isn’t right-wing theorizing. Decent neighborhoods collapse this way. So do whole societies.

Romney should say this. Loudly and often and without embarrassment. As he suggested at his secretly videotaped fundraiser in Boca Raton, America is at the tipping point. Many Americans sense this, and not just conservatives but independents and hard-working Democrats and anyone else who understands the degrading and destabilizing effects of dependency. Romney’s remarks are defensible. He should defend them.

***

You do have to wonder if anything the media have propounded as political wisdom has been right. No one gets everything right in a campaign, but if a pundit or reporter got most of these wrong, why pay any attention?

Here we sit with Romney as the presidential nominee. Ryan energized his ticket, was a hit with the base and has put Wisconsin in play. None of the supposed “gaffes” have changed the course of the race. Romney never released more tax returns than he initially promised. Eastwood’s “empty chair” was a hit with the base. The DNC bounce is gone. One of the most effective arguments the Republicans have made is that Obama took $716 billion from Medicare to pay for Obamacare. Obama fell in foreign policy approval in the latest Wall Street Journal-NBC poll, and attention is now turned to whether the administration was lying when it said the attacks were spontaneous and all about an anti-Muslim movie.

So when the media mavens on the right and left are in hysterics over Romney’s 47 percent remarks, think how accurate the media’s judgment has been. Consider whether the pundits think everything is a disaster for Romney and just don’t like him.

***

“The question of this campaign is not who cares about the poor and the middle class,” said Romney during a fundraising event at an Atlanta hotel.

“I do. He does,” Romney continued, a reference to himself and to President Obama.

“The question is who can help the poor and the middle class,” he said. “I can. He can’t.”…

“He really believes in what I’ll call a government-centered society,” Romney said. “I know there are some who believe that if you simply take from some and give to others, then we’ll all be better off. It’s known as redistribution. It’s never been a characteristic of America. There’s a tape that came out just a couple of days ago where the president said, yes, he believes in redistribution. I don’t. I believe the way to lift people and help people have higher incomes is not to take from some and give to others, but to create wealth for all of us.”

***

“You look at all of the front pages of a lot of these so-called conservative websites and they’re moaning and groaning about how Romney has lost it. But out here in the heartland, outside of that bubble, people aren’t paying attention to what [Mother Jones writer] David Corn is saying.”

AZfederalist on September 20, 2012 at 1:15 AM

This is the sad truth. But, and there’s always a but, AZfederale should be mindful of the fact that conservatism is rooted in personal responsibility. It is Romney’s job to earn his votes – he’s not entitled to anyone’s ballot and if he can’t make the sale then that is is fault and his alone. The fact that I’m going to hold my nose and vote for this liberal globalist turd of a Republican doesn’t mean that every other libertarian can or should.

Why do we have troops in Afghanistan? The Taliban is a Pakistan proxy, Afghanistan is a proxy. In order to destroy the Taliban we have to destroy them at their source in Pakistan. If we’re not going to do that then we aren’t trying to achieve victory. That means we only have troops there so that politicians can check the box on their re-election resume.

If we’re not going to fight to win, in Pakistan where it counts, then we’re wasting lives in Afghanistan for nothing. Worse than nothing—politics—and both parties are guilty.

Please do the right thing in November, vote for Gary Johnson. Donate time and money if you can.

Axe on September 20, 2012 at 1:34 AM

It is true, according to his record. Gary is the only one of the three who doesn’t have to hide from his record. Gary was a two term governor; neither Obama or Romney has served two terms in executive office. Unlike Obama and Romney, Gary was a good governor and thus voted back for a second term, in a not-rigged vote. Unlike Obama and Romney, Gary Johnson did not trample on the rights of the citizens he governed.

Gary Johnson is the only candidate who isn’t corrupt. Romney rigged votes at the national convention and caught numerous times cheating at the caucuses. Romney is essentially the dictator of the Republican Party, now. They steam-rolled rule changes that would have excluded Ronald Reagan from ever being president. I don’t want him to be dictator of the country. If the Republican Party isn’t big enough for Reagan any longer than it isn’t big enough for me.

That fact is that both parties are corrupt! The Republican and Democrat Parties are the problem with America. Let’s get started throwing them all out by voting for a proven reformer at the top, Gary Johnson.

Hell yeah I do!!! You must be joking! Gary Johnson is WAY better than Obama and Romney! Romney is a gun-grabbing healthcare socializer, enemy of the Constitution and Bill of rights. Gary Johnson isn’t perfect but he’s always been a champion of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. He’s the best candidate since Reagan, not that he’s like Reagan, because he’s not. He’s different, but Gary Johnson is the right man at the right time. The “two parties” have failed and America is in desperate need of reform.

It’s not a conspiracy but a consensus – much like the liberal media, or black criminality, Jews in finance, or Italian mafias. The is fact that the two party system is what it is and whether one calls it a conspiracy or not doesn’t change the fact that it is designed to retard radical change and reform, even in times when it is desperately needed – such as now.

Romney banned guns, Obama didn’t. Romney pioneered Obamacare, Obama the copycat. Obama Derangement Syndrome is as prevalent on the right as BDS was on the left and it rubs off on people who should know better. This is the wrong course America is on for which Gary Johnson is the best hope we have to save the ship. If only everybody votes for the best, most qualified candidate, Gary Johnson will win in a landslide.

Otherwise we’re screwed regardless of whether Obama or Romney wins.

An unfair comparison to say the least.

However to JUST say its a 2 party system is a little misleading: The ballot machine holds plenty oother parties that run the gamut of political speech.

What you’re upset about is that you cannot get a majority enough of the voters to agree with you..at least at the Federal level.

But still while i admire you’re loyalty, again it just leads to the question: WHY should anyone else support the man?

If he can’t convince enough people in this day and age when access to information is instantaneous and global, isn’t it possible to believe that most people already decided that he isn’t the one? Why is that hard to accept?

I was born in 1978, but grew up in a house where music was played constantly…everything from Vivaldi to Nina Simone to The Who, Sabbath, Zep, Sex Pistols, The Clash, then 80s heavy/glam/punk, and into GNR, Nirvana, Dave Matthews, U2, etc. I also have my ear to the underground world of garage, some rap, neo-punk, German metal & neo-glam, and, of course, the whacky world of obscure British bands like The Mold Monkies, who gave us one of today’s M2RBs “Jimmy Carter Saved The World.”

IOW, just about everything save “La Streisand,” “La Bette,” “La Bey,” and any other “La ‘Listen to Me While I Sing-Talk About My Dreams of Having Sex With a Democratic President’ Liberal Singer.” I refused to listen to another Babs song after I became old enough to realise that she was a complete whack-job, which was around 1989.

Not to indulge in facile political analogies, but since you did it with abobo at 1:40 AM, I’ll say that I’m surprised that you’re so enthralled with possibly the most backwards-looking (and in that sense, “conservative”) composers of the 20th century. Although, and possibly for that reason, also one of the most prescient and insightful for his own time. The vision conveyed in his 9th Symphony is grim-to-terrifying.

Lol. For a while, I signed off with this with a (humorous) warning to the kiddies: “Don’t stare at the man in the heavy makeup, kids…he’s…with the carnival,” (or some such).

Dire knows good and well that I’m a Cure fan.

Where’s the triple-face-palm and Death Star Stare pic?

Francois Hollande condemns ‘stupidity’ of Islamic rebels in Mali

You know we are totally f*cked when a French SOCIALIST can call Islamists “stupid” and our EmptySuitEmptyChair Administration is out apologising for a damn youtube video when everyone-and-their-grandmum knew that the attacks on 9/11 were not spontaneous or the result of offended, incited Muslims.

I READ about the threat to the embassy in Cairo the day BEFORE it was attacked and I don’t even work in the intelligence community!!!

Good for you. Don’t pat yourself on the back too much.

Why not donate, make some phone calls, and knock on some doors?

It’s the least you could do. Our Founding Fathers risked their lives to establish our great nation so don’t act like it’s such a burden for you to have to simply hold your nose to vote for Romney. If we want any shot of preserving our great Republic then we ALL need to do everything to support Romney.

And no it’s not about embracing Romney, it’s about ensuring obama is defeated!

Voting for the lesser of two evils condones evil. Romney and the GOP rigged votes at the convention shutting out Reagan and was caught cheating many times in various caucuses, disenfranchising myself and others and shutting us out of the party. Voting for Romney would be like a victim voting for her rapist. A vote is an act of promotion, and the last person I would promote is somebody like Romney who politically swindled me of fair representation in the American political process without being cheated by the likes of Romney.

Or, in the face of a completely unjust ruling from Judge Jackie (or JJ, as the fans like to refer to her), I could…possibly change my sign-off to this.

(Not quite as gentle……But less makeup.)

You mean like RuPaul trying to steal the convention even though he got blown out in the primary? Santorum and Newt did the decent thing and dropped out while Rupaul tried to create more dissension within the GOP and thought he could steal the convention against the will of the people.

And ROmney believes in American exceptionalism and free markets. He’s a self made man, a successful CEO who knows how to run companies unlike the marxist community organizer.

They are worlds apart and you couldn’t be anymore ignorant if you tried!

No, voting for him is the least I can do. And the least I intend to.

You’re right and I’m a compromised individual. If I lived in Texas or Nebraska that would be one thing. The Silver state is another thing all together. And with that I bid you all good night. Too bad lib never came back for more correcting with regards to musical matters. Probably figured he’d run circles around the rubes. Typical liberal.
