Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on September 30, 2012 by Allahpundit

A two-track strategy for Team Mitt this morning as the countdown to the first presidential debate begins. One: Send Paul Ryan over to “Fox News Sunday” to speak directly to conservatives, as part of his new mission to reassure the right that the campaign is where it needs to be at the moment. Two: Send Chris Christie over to ABC, NBC, and CBS to make the pitch to moderates, especially blue-collar moderates in the wake of Romney’s “47 percent” remarks.

Meanwhile, appearing for the Democrats, it’ll be Plouffe and Axelrod. As usual. The line-up via WaPo:

NBC’s Meet the Press: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; White House senior adviser David Plouffe; Ralph Reed, Faith and Freedom Coalition; former Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA); Katty Kay, BBC; Chuck Todd, NBC

CBS’ Face the Nation: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; Newt Gingrich; Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN); Larry Sabato, University of Virginia; Robert Shrum, Republican strategist; Bob Woodward, Washington Post; Mark Zandi, Moody Analytics; Michelle Rhee, former DC Chancellor of Schools; Hedrick Smith, journalist

ABC’s This Week: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie; White House senior adviser David Plouffe; former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour; former Vermont governor Howard Dean; Donna Brazile, Democratic strategist; Matthew Dowd, political strategist; Maggie Haberman, Politico

Fox News Sunday: Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)

CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ); Obama Campaign senior adviser David Axelrod; Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD); Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO); Alex Castellanos, Republican consultant; Celinda Lake, Democratic strategist; Dana Bash, CNN

Bob Woodward: This economy could go into a tailspin at any given time. No kidding.

Philly on September 30, 2012 at 11:10 AM

Woodward said the tailspin will come from the government sector because they refuse to address the pending fiscal cliff: a government-created recession.

Zandi the Obamapologist says that the private sector is doing fine. LOL

I love how these liberal tools know that the middle class is suffering, but refuse to place the blame where it belongs.

Philly on September 30, 2012 at 11:15 AM

Ha, ha, ha. I think Christie saying “the first debate will turn the race upside down” is psy-ops. He’s getting inside Zero’s head and making him wonder — and worry — what Romney has planned to say. Zero is already sweatin’ buckets because he’s got nothing but bumper stickers to say, and Christie is inside the Romney campaign. He’s telling Zero to watch out, that Romney has something planned. It will add to Zero’s fear and anxiety. He’s gonna be jumpy as hell when that first debate gets started. Ha!

It actually could be the best thing that ever happened to Romney and the country — if. If he had the wits for a subversive strategy and the nerve to execute it.

I wish I could say he did. I hope he does. But there is nothing in his past to suggest it.

rrpjr on September 30, 2012 at 11:58 AM

Another libfreeordie thread, talking about what he wants to talk about= thread hi-jacking. Page 1 was fine, but from then on, not so much. Even if I skip his comments, reading replies to him is too much. Breaks continuity and the whole topic becomes about the troll. Which by the way is his objective. He’s done a great job this morning on this thread.

There is a very dangerous idea being pushed aggressively by a number of European countries (France, UK and Norway) to impose a wealth tax, which is a tax on asset on top of income. Hollande has introduced that as a “temporary” measure. Clegg, the Deputy PM in the UK, wants that in the next budget if the Liberal Democrats were to go along with spending cut. It is in place in Norway. Yesterday there was an OWS type of demonstrations in Germany agitating for the introduction of that tax. Barry and the Dems are salivating at the idea.

The Democrats had two years to get rid of those tax cuts and there was nothing the Republicans could have done to stop them……so why make an issue of it now?

BTW, the biggest pay day in the history of the IRS was April 2006…and that was after those tax cuts were passed.

Not mentioned in the media — yet

Senator Obama mumbled and was fighting to keep from making noises (according to a debate coach I know) and people found him vague and hard to understand but believed in him. He got super marks on the economy! Every debate expert gave McCain a victory on the Foreign Affairs section but people chose Sen. Obama as being better able to handle even that. Amazing!

Does anyone remember the jump in support for Senator Obama after the debates with Senator McCain? With media fanning the flames..

I read as much as 3 points.

“by the way, is that the poll that has something like 48% Democrats?”

Even if you change the partisan sample to your liking, Romney still loses by 3 pts.

I’ve never seen anything like the “poll whining” that’s going on this year. All your hopes rest on the polls being completely screwed up or intentionally dishonest.

IMO, the trends in all the important states are horrendous for Romney even if the exact numbers are in dispute. He’s tanking across the board.

Math, please?
My partisan liking says Dem oversampled plus 8 pts. Also says there is no way independents are +3 for Obama.

Either way, margin of error is a little over 2 percent.
In other words, tied.

Mitsouko on September 30, 2012 at 12:52 PM

gumbo and the dead guy bear no fruit.

watch Rasmussen: a statistical tie in swing states and the general.
Dems will have only only +3 or 1/2 advantage they had in 2008.

An event will move the voters to Romney. That event is Benghazi and foreign policy.

The undecideds always break for the challenger 2:1.

Mitt will win this thing and he does not need Ohio to do it but he will win it anyway.

By the way Rasmussen says the debates do not significantly impact the Presidential elections.

gracie on September 30, 2012 at 12:54 PM

Oh but my dear professor, it wasn’t the pro-Romney crowd I wanted to draw your attention to. It was the pro-Obama crowd shown at the end – all 10 of them.

I was at that Toledo rally and those protesters were bused in from Illinois! The event was set up for 5,000 but they had to open up another room to accommodate the over-flow. Probably about 5,500.

I have posted this before- Toledo is a Democrat/union city. I have only seen a handful of Obama signs or bumper stickers. There is no enthusiasm for this president in this town. Doesn’t mean they still won’t vote for Obama but we can hope they stay home.

Terrye on September 30, 2012 at 12:31 PM

Amazing, isn’t it, considering…

In 2008 according to Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted’s website, Democrats out numbered Republicans by 174,000, 1.48 million to 1.30 million. The unaffiliated voters totaled 5.1 million.

Fast forward to 2012.

The political landscape in Ohio is dramatically different. Democrats went from 1.48 million down to 827,000. That is a loss of 653,000. Republicans went from 1.3 million down to 894,000. That is a loss of 412,000. The most dramatic change however was in unaffiliated voters. This segment of voters rose from 5.1 million to 6.3 million. That is an increase of 1.2 million more unaffiliated voters in the Buckeye state. This was a cataclysmic shift away from the two major parties, although a larger shift away from the Democrats.

Let’s break this down even further.

Republicans lost 214,000 fewer voters than Democrats and unaffiliated voters grew by a whopping 1.2 million more voters. This obviously gives Republicans the advantage in two distinct ways. First, their are now 67,000 more registered Republicans than their are Democrats. Second, more voters decided to leave the Democrat Party in favor of being unaffiliated/undeclared or Independent.

I’m sure all those voters who left the Democrat Party will now turn around and vote for the Democrat. //

Flora Duh on September 30, 2012 at 12:55 PM

“Hey Gumby and Poll-y Re Columbus Dispatch Poll
Party ID: 43% Democrat; 35% Republican; 20% Independent; 2% Libertarian;”

As I said before, re-weight the numbers if you want. Obama still wins OH by about 3 pts, which is probably around what the final margin will be.

What will be your focus on election night?

Will it be that Romney lost, which he definitely will?

Or will it be that the final margin was less than what the pollsters predicted, which it definitely will?

Not at all. Just using it as another data point.

Looking at the RCP average is the best way to figure out who’s ahead and by how much.

Romney is doing terribly in every single poll that comes out now, whether it’s national or a swing state. It is what it is.

HA Warriors! You are all so brave to tackle the trolls etc on this, I am frankly exhausted reading this thread!

You Rock!!

I think the rate of abortion in the black community speaks to the number of black women who feel they are unprepared to raise a child. Which certainly says something about the way society supports motherhood.

libfreeordie on September 30, 2012 at 10:16 AM

No. It says something about the way this society supports, and promotes, fatherhood.

esr1951 on September 30, 2012 at 2:02 PM

gumballs, face it, you’re going to lose..and the funny thing is that Romney won’t even need to take Ohio to win, but he will.
get a head start on licking yourself.

esr1951 on September 30, 2012 at 2:02 PM

And to be perfectly clear, this society does NOT promote and support father hood, especially in some communities.

TN Man “Fathers” 30 Kids But Can’t Support Any

(Knoxville, TN) Desmond Hatchett is pleading with the state of Tennessee to help him pay for child support.

With 30 kids, who could afford to pay child support?

Yes, 30 children by 11 different “baby mamas.”

Desmond explained how it all happened, well you know what we mean, “I had four kids in the same year. Twice.”

The children range in age from toddlers to 14 years old.

He was last in court in 2009, at which time he had 21 children.

That means he’s had at least 9 more children in the last 3 years.

Hatchett only has a minimum wage job, which means some of the moms receive as little as… $1.49 a month.

You can do a nice and easy google search and find tons of articles about his lack of campaign stops. But keep living in your dreamworld. I will love…LOVE…calling you out on election night.

gumbyandpokey on September 30, 2012 at 1:19 PM

LOL.

You won’t even BE here on Election Night.

You and your fellow Obama slaves will be out in the streets screaming and setting fire to your own slums and crack houses.

Mainly because you will be facing the equivalent of a “whiff of grapeshot” if you go anywhere near the homes and businesses of the productive people who are sick of paying your bills for you, sick of your screaming and ranting, and sick of your racist imbecile Obama.

You reek of the desperation of your liar Obama. He has nothing. NOTHING. The only hope he has is to hand out more Obamaphones to get the lazy vote and to keep Republicans, conservatives, and the productive from voting.

Ain’t gonna happen. Your Obama is a thief, a liar, and a pig, and he does all of these so he can purchase the votes of lazy filth like yourself who don’t want to work and just want a welfare check.

Game over, child.

northdallasthirty on September 30, 2012 at 3:06 PM

How else can you support passing a tax cut during a massive occupation of two nations. That, right there, is Boomerism to a tea and it is going by the wayside. Deal.

libfreeordie on September 30, 2012 at 9:58 AM

Yes because tax cuts never lead to higher revenue…

pssst they did for GW and for Reagan.

CW on September 30, 2012 at 12:19 PM

Most Republicans know that lower taxes on the rich always leads to higher revenue to the Treasury.

But not Romney/Ryan.

Ryan was on Fox News Sunday today. He explaind his plan would be “revenue neutral” it would cut the tax rate 20% on the middle class by removing Charitiable and Home deductions amont other for the “Rich”.

I would say this was anti-God or AntiChrist. It would really hurt donations to churches.

I just do not understand Romney/Ryans mentality of insisting on raising taxes on the rich. I thought that was the Democrats.

I detest Obama even more having watched 2016 Obama’s America and “Dreams from my Real Father” but am still having a very hard time defining differences between Obama and Romney. I worry Romney just wants to replace Obama as President for Life.

David Axelrod tried but failed to explain how anything would be different in a second term.

He ended by saying Obama had always had a vision on change.

Steveangell on September 30, 2012 at 3:21 PM

Paul Ryan refuses to critize the Press.

Marching orders from Mitt?

Chriss Christe in on the front of this no idea why Medite did that.

Steveangell on September 30, 2012 at 3:25 PM

Ryan trumpets Mitts five point plan.

I had never heard of it. Well I found it.

I purposely directed you here to the NYTimes because he does a good job of analysing for the most part.

He misses in 5 that Mitt is raising taxes on the rich not lowering them as he proported. Raising them by eliminating deductions will still hurt small business. He only achieves revenue nutral by doing so.

The main point is these are all very vague. Almost just like Hope and Change. You have to read into them to have them mean much.

Ari Fleischer Defends Susan Rice Against Calls For Her Resignation

Aaron David Miller of the Woodrow Wilson International Center agreed with Fleischer, noting also that the administration needs to “get its messaging straight.” Rice shouldn’t resign, he said, as she is merely reflecting the administration’s stance and policies.

He’s right the person who ordered her to say this should resign.

I’ve never seen anything like the “poll whining” that’s going on this year.

If the polls are more biased than ever leading up to what may be the most important election ever, what should there be, less whining?

When the autorefresh finishes, I just pick up where I was and finish my post.

Trying to further demoralize us conservatives just as the mainstream media is attempting to do?

Well, you’re not stopping my vote for Romney; I’ll take him any day over the Socialist-in-Chief.
Wow, Obama killed Osama, has al-qaeda on the run & he jailed the biggest threat to our national security: Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. What a great foreign policy strategy!
