Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on October 7, 2012 by Allahpundit

Senior Obama campaign adviser Robert Gibbs on Sunday acknowledged that the president was unhappy with his performance in last week’s first debate.

“It’s not rocket science to believe that the president’s disappointed,” Gibbs said, in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

***

President Barack Obama returns to Los Angeles Sunday for a star-bedecked celebrity concert and fundraising dinner. In the wake of his Denver debate troubles, however, the long scheduled visit has acquired another, equally urgent purpose—reassuring his Hollywood supporters that he’s fighting to win the race and he’s poised for a comeback in the next televised forum with former Gov. Mitt Romney…

“Everyone is in shock,” said one long-time Democratic activist. “No one can understand what happened.”

At the very least, several longtime Obama supporters told THR, the chief executive should expect some directorial notes on how to tailor his performance to television’s split screen. “Everyone with a connection to the president is reaching out to him,” said another veteran Dem. “At the end of the day, the best coach he has is himself.”

***

CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer kicked off the conversation “with the obvious question — what happened?”

“The president showed up with the intent of answering questions and having a discussion, an honest discussion of where we will go as a country, and Romney showed up to deliver a performance, and he delivered a very good performance,” Axelrod said. “It was completely un-rooted in fact, it was completely un-rooted in the positions he’s taken before and he spent 90 minutes trying to undo two years of campaigning on that stage, but he did it very well.”…

Obama, Axelrod said, “was a little taken aback by the brazenness with which Gov. Romney walked away” from his past positions and his record.

***

Expectations have changed after the greatest audience in the history of presidential debates saw a veritable empty suit — or empty chair — on stage, without a helpful media follow-up question, or a “make no mistake about it” refrain to be had. Over 60 million now expect little at all from their president in the debate, so Obama will benefit from dismal expectations by just showing up as the incumbent and being addressed as “Mr. President.” The pressure on Romney to be even more impressive mounts. The realization that another rant by a liberal commentator could cement the reputation of Obama as an incompetent and add to the image of a hopelessly inept president will temper post-debate media anger. The moderator cannot afford to be laissez-faire in the fashion of Jim Lehrer, and will prove far more partisan. The media pressure to discount the importance of the debates themselves will increase.

But despite all that, the nation has now seen that the conservative critique of Barack Obama — fluff without substance — was frighteningly accurate.

***

The first, and the most dangerous threat to Obama’s re-election, is a critical mass of voters saying this: “Barack Obama, nice man, good father, great that we finally elected an African-American. He tried hard. But you know what? I just want to try something new, even if I don’t know it will work.”

That sentiment is deadly for Obama. As long as Romney didn’t seem like a credible alternative, Obama kept it at bay, even though the economy has stagnated. But Romney reawakened that mood by the confident and crisp way he talked about the mechanics of how jobs are created — through start-ups, small businesses and entrepreneurship — and the catalytic power of markets. His presentation crackled with a freshness and a sense of possibility that was completely missing in Obama’s monotone discussion of health care, deficits and government programs. And where Obama had a chance to talk about how his own green jobs initiative has actually spurred all kinds of innovations and start-ups, he whiffed. (As some have noted, it is too bad the debate rules didn’t allow him to phone a friend.)

***

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus expressed optimism that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) would do well in Thursday night’s vice presidential debate, but sought to downplay expectations…

“Paul is going to do a great job, but also I think it’s very important that people understand that, people realize that Joe Biden is a gifted orator, is very good at rhetoric, is very relatable,” he added…

“Last week you saw the difference: an unfiltered Mitt Romney, an unfiltered Barack Obama,” he said of the debate. “You saw inspiration, heart, preparedness from Mitt Romney and you saw a president that came in unprepared and uninspiring.”

“You know what, maybe Clint Eastwood was right,” said Priebus.

“It was one of the most inept performances by an incumbent president that I’ve ever seen,” said TIME Magazine columnist Joe Klein. He said that Obama’s performance was indicative of his deferential demeanor and his aversion towards public fights. However, Klein said that Obama opted for “unilateral disarmament” in the face of Romney’s attacks on his record.

MSNBC host S.E. Cupp said that her contacts within the Romney campaign see this debate as facilitating a reset of the campaign in three parts. First, they wanted a fight, which they got. Second, the debate ignited the attentions of marginally interested swing voters. Finally, they feel that the debate allowed disaffected Obama voters from 2008 the license to take a second look at Romney.

“They see this as a hat trick moving forward,” said Cupp.

Oh what a disgrace if such a despicable and base man, who hates America and it’s constitution and all Christians, and worships himself, should be allowed four more years to assault a people which has the faith of omnipotent God! With what reproaches will the Lord overwhelm us if we do not promptly and fully aid those who’s conscience is being brutalized and murdered because they profess the Christian religion! Let those who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private warfare against other of the faithful now all unite and go against the tyrant in a Holy Crusade and end with total victory in November!

Let those who have been in service of this tyrant against their own brothers and sisters now fight in a proper way against this tyrant. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul in vain attempt to appease him now labor for glorious honor against him. Behold! On the one side will be the completely destroyed tyrant, on the other the fierce and righteous protectors of the Constitution and Christianity. On the one side will be the destroyed enemy of the Lord and the Constitution, on the other, their friends who will shout at the tyrant as they destroy him in November, “It is for the Founding Fathers!”, “It is for the Founding Fathers!, and “Deus vult! Deus vult! Deus vult!”

I saw two excellent Romney ads on TV in FL this evening.

One was done by AEI http://www.aei-ideas.org/ with a couple excellent charts on showing how the number of jobs have gone down and how the debt has gone up.

I can’t remember who did the other one. I thought they were both effective because they stated basic facts and numbers that will get people’s attention (for those who haven’t paid attention @_@) and get past the media spin.

Electrongod on October 7, 2012 at 10:43 PM

Pat Caddelll gives the Romney campaign a helluva idea for an ad.

Specifically, the Romney campaign should send a camera-equipped “tracker” to Obama events–and videotape only the Obama teleprompter. Then some clever “Mad Men” types could concoct a video spot, something like this: the teleprompter-less Obama onstage in Denver, stumbling as he looks down at his notes, compared to the telepromptered Obama on the the stump, delivering a much different, and far more fluid, campaign line. The message, in other words: Obama can’t function without that word-machine in front of him. And with such intellectual flabbiness on display for all to see, do we really expect the American people to believe that Obama merits a second term?

I have had to do something I have never done before. Put out the word my property is off limits to hunting this year. I’m catching flak over the decision. Oh well.

Bmore on October 7, 2012 at 10:53 PM

.
I have never let anyone hunt on our property. It not to “protect” the deer. The Ohio deer population is currently 750,000 and we will never have enough predators to control the population.

It is because I have known too many “hunters” I would not trust with slingshot, much less a shotgun.

Someone was publicly observing my “position” was not very “neighborly” …

… I replied, “Then anyone I find firing a gun onto my land is going to be really unhappy when I return fire.”

There is one deerstand in the adjoining woods to my property – it faces 180 degrees away from my property.

I think they got the message.

Please lets not start fighting with each other — KOOLAID2 only requested that others not to respond to the troll; that isn’t “censoring” you — you are still free to do what you want — unless, of course, you slander the “prophet” of Islam, then 12 armed police men in brown shirts will show up at your house at midnight to take you for “voluntary questioning.”

Dark Star on October 7, 2012 at 11:02 PM

I’m not fighting with anyone. I have no problem at all with KOOLAID2. None. And the prophet of Islam likes BLTs and pork rinds and hanging out at casinos. With hot Jewish chicks.

Honestly; that we’ve let it get as far as we have already scares the hell outta me.

I can’t make up my mind. I’m buying older, used books. I refuse to pay $12.99-$17.99 for an E-book. “Cain Mutiny” looks interesting.

JPeterman on October 7, 2012 at 10:50 PM

If you have a kindle, when you are in the store, type in “free kindle books”. There are about 50,000 books there. Most of the classics are there because they are out of copyright or something. A lot of really old stuff, the Federalist Papers, The Constitution, etc. That’s where I got my book about things you can make out of duct tape. Laughing out loud.

Night Owl on October 7, 2012 at 11:08 PM

I am sure it was closer to 62%..
But we will let Gumby tell us the real numbers..

He can’t right now as he is cheering Venezuela right now..

Oh that’s true but I think Obama has been a big “oh crap” wake up call to a lot of people.

I don’t think it will get to the point of Venezuela – at least I hope not.

You can also go to Gutenberg.org and choose from their selection of free stuff. It can all be downloaded to kindles.
