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.

Venezuela is one country. I have no idea if regional areas have any type of separate governments, but we’re a country of states with governors. Our election results are not handled by Congress (for which we should be grateful as Reid and Pelosi would have us in chains) but by each state. I don’t think some of the governors will roll over.

Here’s some additional facts for that douche Gumby:

1) Gallup’s presidential approval rating is a 7 day poll. Obama sunk -2 in approval and rose +1 in disapproval today. IN A 7 DAY POLL. ON A SATURDAY. Clearly the jobs report is not a net gain for Obama.

2) PPP as we all know is a joke if you watched their handywork on Akin and the WI recall. Exhibit one million: PPP now has Obama doing better in VA than WI. 2008 had Obama over McCain +14 in WI and +6 in VA.

3) Romney improved by 2 in PPP’s VA poll over September even though the Jensen cranked the sampling from D +3 to D +6.

4) PPP VA poll has Obama Approval at 50/48 and Romney favorability at 52/44

I’d call the latest PPP polls good news.

One of the reviews at Amazon

Captain Trimmer should have finished his copy of Atlas Shrugged before he penned this giveaway to the social-leech “little” boaters out there, the ones who refuse to take personal responsibility and expect the huge ships to do all the work to avoid hitting them. This book caters to the weak, and is a frustrating read for responsible citizens. I say let the ingrates be run down by the huge ships. It’s a way to clear the gene pool of the “stupid” gene. In fact, huge ships should aim for the little guys. This is America and bigger should always crush smaller!

Sweet! This one’s pretty good too.

I am a huge ship. Imagine having an entire book devoted toward actively avoiding you and your kind. I have always been bigger than other ships – and yes, I have endured years of being moared in the distance, never being able to enter the shallower bays, requiring tugs to guide me in – but now THIS! Mr. Trimmer, you sir, should be ashamed! Please do not be swayed by his drivel. I ask that you judge me not by the size of my cargo hatch but rather the content of my wheelhouse.

JPeterman, in case you did not see, this is the most valuable, 40,000 of them.

Thanks, I saw that one and audio book place. Bookmarked forever.

I like your train of thought, EG.

Venezuela is one country. I have no idea if regional areas have any type of separate governments, but we’re a country of states with governors. Our election results are not handled by Congress (for which we should be grateful as Reid and Pelosi would have us in chains) but by each state. I don’t think some of the governors will roll over.

I agree with you, but I have found it frightening the past few years, the things Obama has done with NO ONE doing anything to stop him. I tell myself it’s not because they won’t do anything, but it takes forever for anything to happen here since it has to be done with lawsuits and court filings and such. He needs to be stopped for good on November 6th.

Obama makes it too easy. He was delivering all of his “zingers” the next day and the day after that to a few thousand people…long after the credits had rolled on the debate and 60 million Americans had realised that George had no clothes and a serious shrinkage problem.

Resist We Much on October 8, 2012 at 12:01 AM

70 million – the revised numbers, with on line viewing and etc.

L’esprit de l’escalier or L’esprit d’escalier (literally, staircase wit) is a French term used in English that describes the predicament of thinking of the right comeback too late.

His is not only too late, but with the teleprompter and with his Wunderkind of a speechwriter, the one who leads his team, and the one who wrote his 2004 speech and modified his 2008 speeches.

On his own he is nakid, but he is a dangerous man, intent to remodel the US after his marxists. It all just “so happens”.

We’ll see tomorrow in Rasmussen and Gallup how much of a “joke” the American public thinks the 7.8 number is.

gumbyandpokey on October 7, 2012 at 10:29 PM

..jeez-us! You folks still letting this pathetic tool j**k off in front of you?

He’s getting as tedious as Angry Ed or Pragmatic or the other mind-numbed trolls that spew their specious issue on our floor and expect us to clean it up.

Don’t you folks know that he’s a paroled convicted felon and an avowed pederast who was recently elected to the SF chapter of NAMBLA? Further, he has been hauled into the county lockup for beating his live-in Guatemalan pool boy lover and been caught soliciting same-sex pleasure in the public restrooms in Santa Monica?

At least that’s what Harry Reid told me.

(Sorry, I plead insanity by virtue of two bottles of uncommonly delicious bottles of Liebraumilch.)

The War Planner on October 8, 2012 at 12:15 AM

“1) Gallup’s presidential approval rating is a 7 day poll. Obama sunk -2 in approval and rose +1 in disapproval today. IN A 7 DAY POLL. ON A SATURDAY. Clearly the jobs report is not a net gain for Obama.”

And the head to head numbers didn’t move, which means Obama won the Saturday sample, which he also did on Ras.

Will be fun to see what Rasmussen and Gallup have in store for us!

Looking forward to tomorrow morning and we can see just how the 7.8 number played with the American public.

Good evening, War Planner. Have you ever had Ginger wine? Its higher octane than regular wine, and its especially good with a bump of good scotch. :)

By the way…just so the actual people on this thread know… I don’t read anything with a recognized troll monicker on it. I scroll right on by. :)

How are you this evening, my friend?

thatsafactjack on October 8, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Sad for the stupid people in Venezuela, but also schadenfreudig. Fools in relatively free lands deserve their leaders, always.

Venezuela apparently has the least class differentiation among its people. Apparently most all are paid off by the socialist/commie fool. I detest sheeple and wolves, in the sense of the moochers/looters. This does not bode well for Nov. but I’ll keep hope alive. If not, I’ll just laugh and go gulch.

Oh, I had left last night – I am not running away either, but they have to get me at the gulch. They won’t enjoy it.

Schadenfreude on October 8, 2012 at 12:22 AM

Yes… I’ll take them with me if it comes to that, rest assured.

I’m sad for Venezuela as well, but as you say, if they did allow him to ride rough shod over them, they deserve what they get.

I’m fairly certain we’re going to win in November and I think it will be a surprisingly clean win. If not, I think a ‘Taxatlas shrug’ may be in order. Very difficult to play king with no money. King of the paupers wouldn’t suit the Lightbringer.
