Quotes of the day

posted at 8:42 pm on October 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated laughter during Thursday’s debate was a reflection of the “enormous amount of passion and joy” he brings to the job of serving the American people, White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Friday…

“The person I saw up there last night is somebody who is absolutely passionate about fighting for and defending the middle class… and who comes to his job — this many years in to serving his country in the Senate and now to the White House — with an enormous amount of passion and joy,” Carney said…

“Setting aside assessments of winners and losers,” he said, “As someone who worked with the vice president for two years and traveled with him around the country and the world, I took extreme pleasure in watching the debate last night because of the way that he demonstrated his passion and his wisdom and the joy that he brings to the job of serving the American people as vice president.”

***

Last week Mr. Obama was weirdly passive. Last night Mr. Biden was weirdly aggressive, if that is the right word for someone who grimaces, laughs derisively, interrupts, hectors, rolls his eyes, browbeats and attempts to bully. He meant to dominate, to seem strong and no-nonsense. Sometimes he did—he had his moments. But he was also disrespectful and full of bluster. “Oh, now you’re Jack Kennedy!” he snapped at one point. It was an echo of Lloyd Bentsen to Dan Quayle, in 1988. But Mr. Quayle, who had compared himself to Kennedy, had invited the insult. Mr. Ryan had not. It came from nowhere. Did Mr. Biden look good? No, he looked mean and second-rate. He meant to undercut Mr. Ryan, but he undercut himself. His grimaces and laughter were reminiscent of Al Gore’s sighs in 2000—theatrical, off-putting and in the end self-indicting

National Democrats keep confusing strength with aggression and command with sarcasm. Even the latter didn’t work for Mr. Biden. The things he said had the rhythm and smirk of sarcasm without the cutting substance.

And so the Romney-Ryan ticket emerged ahead. Its momentum was neither stopped nor slowed and likely was pushed forward.

***

It will be the crowning irony of the No Drama Obama campaign that it took a man who exudes more drama than a decade of Latin American soap operas to get Democrats out of their funk…

At the same time, my in-box was filled with a certain number of people who would be happy if they could spend the next few weeks delivering some punches to Biden, and not just Republicans. What do independents want most? They want people who will practice a more respectful brand of politics, who will behave the way most Americans try to behave in their dealings: respectfully, maybe even pausing to listen for a second. To them, Biden will seem like an off-putting caricature of the worst of old-style politics

A lot of people will look at Biden’s performance and see a style of politics that makes complex trade-offs impossible. The people who think this way swing general elections.

***

Whereas President Obama’s smile during his debate with Mitt Romney seemed to be an afterthought, proffered as recompense to relieve the strain of his lackluster performance, Vice President Biden’s was an Uzi. From the time he sat down next to Paul Ryan, he was locked and loaded with the pearliest chompers since Matt Dillon donned horse veneers to impress Cameron “There’s Something About Mary” Diaz…

Biden’s smile, though it may be the most remembered part of the debate, probably didn’t work as intended. Democrats may have overlooked the inauthenticity of the smile, not to mention Biden’s repeated interruptions, because he was projecting the aggression they were feeling. As their agent, he was compensating for the president’s perceived weakness. The anger they feel is really toward Obama, of course; Ryan was merely his stand-in.

***

The Democrats cheering on Biden’s bullying, while ignoring the fact that he had nothing to offer on the future of entitlements and his disgraceful alibis about Libya, did so because at bottom they really do not feel Republicans or conservatives are worthy of respect or decency. Though they rarely own up to it, they don’t think Republicans are so much wrong as they are bad. By contrast, most Republicans think Democrats are wrong, not evil. Ryan, whose polite behavior was entirely proper but was made to appear passive and even weak when compared to his bloviating opponent, demonstrated this paradigm by patiently trying to explain his positions even when he was constantly interrupted…

The problem here is not just that presidents and would-be commanders-in-chief must appear presidential. It is that the liberal base of the president’s party is so filled with anger and contempt for Republicans that they can’t abide even a show of civility from their champions.

***

Biden aimed to throw the Obama base a lifeline. He fed the Kos Kidz desperate need for to see some fight, but at the cost of his remaining (and mostly notional) dignity. If you want a gibbering, snorting, mumbling clown with a rictus-grin locked on his mug a heartbeat away from controlling America’s nuclear arsenal, Joe Biden’s your guy…

The conventional wisdom this morning is that the debate was a tie. That conventional wisdom is (as is so often the case) dead wrong. Biden played to his base, trying to dig Obama out of the hole he’s been trapped in since last week’s debate trainwreck. Ryan played to the center, to the swing and to the late-engagers. The post-hoc coverage won’t factor into their decisions: the pictures and Biden’s mugging, drunk-uncle affect will. (Also, Biden opened several new, Costco-scale cans of worms for the Administration on the Libya scandal.)

In short, Biden did nothing to reset the race, and the edge of panic is still there in the Obama campaign.

***

“Biden’s debate preparation was watching repeatedly ‘The Shining.’ And I think he did an excellent imitation of Jack Nicholson,” Charles Krauthammer observed on the “Special Report” panel.

So this is the general consensus of what went on last night, at least in the real world. I’ve heard plenty of commentary to the effect that lunch-bucket was playing to the d base. Curious if anyone has donned a hazmat suit and checked the actual reaction of the base over at du or huffpo or dkos? I’ve not really read any stories about the moonbat reaction to creepy uncle joe last night.

if you look at rasmussens chart of head to head likely voters, you can see that barry/axe/media have done a good job of getting base lefties/takers ginned up to more likely to vote…the trend is clear since august….it has bought barry two or three points

they love free stuff.

barry’s approval rating is fifty percent among likely voters.

i say this because i think most of the stuff that goes on is not relevant…tons of people are satisfied with the current situation. they have zero clue about the future and don’t care

“Our security plan worked.”

- A second State Department official following a 6 June 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate in which terrorist blew a hole in a perimeter wall “big enough for forty men to go through,” according to a letter to Secretary Clinton

The “SECURITY PLAN” in that case was an insufficient amount of firepower and number of terrorists

“The system worked.”

- Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, in response to the attempted Christmas bombing of a plane over Detroit by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

The “SYSTEM” in that case was a DUTCH FILMMAKER.

By contrast, most Republicans think Democrats are wrong, not evil.

I cannot speak for most Republicans – or even most conservatives – but I can speak for myself: evil is as evil does and by that measure I can assure you that the Democrat party is an agent of evil.

Those who stand in the echelons of its leadership face a day of reckoning that the truly humble dare not contemplate.

Biden jumped in and interrupted your comment.

That’s the biggest bunch of malarkey I’ve ever heard. Say something else. Start another sentence. I dare ya!

Paul-Cincy on October 12, 2012 at 10:08 PM

I can assure you that the Democrat party is an agent of evil.

ManlyRash on October 12, 2012 at 10:06 PM

Truer words were never spoken. A party to appeal to the more ignorant and emotional among us. An ignorance and emotion that can be shaped and driven by those with the power.

Lanceman on October 12, 2012 at 10:08 PM

Good gracious, ya’ll are sounding more gumbyed than pokey.

Flora Duh on October 12, 2012 at 10:05 PM

It’s a contagion. And he spread it.

Friendly fire? That’s my bet.

You thinkin’ self-inflicted intentionally?

Lanceman on October 12, 2012 at 10:09 PM

If I remember the articles correctly, no one cites eyewitness account as part of how they determined friendly fire. Also, it was days later when they came up with this. I also read that a couple of guns were found at the scene, but they did not know how thy played into it. I think one was a hand gun and one a rifle.

Axe, what happened at the War on Bacon today? I wasn’t around but I saw Bmore post a question to me and then he seemed to get bothered about something. Did someone use my name in the chat box?

Oh, and to stay on topic, Biden is evil.

He asked about Kelly’s cousin in the background; Kelly answered him (and others that had mentioned her) with an admonishment to “stay classy.”

Something like, “that’s my cousin. Stay classy.”

He didn’t like it. :)

I tried to untangle it all before it got perma-knotted. He said he was OK and laughing about it.

*shrug*

Loved her in Day of the Locusts. But if the low-low-budget movie never got completed, how would it turn up on her resume? Is this what’s going to happen to those poor actors in that vile and disgusting and despicable and utterly irrelevant red herring movie trailer The Innocence of Muslims?

To be more precise, it is a political party that appeals to the darkest, most base expressions of human nature: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

Meh.
Classic Dem tactic.
I expect them to come up with worse as the Dems desperation builds.

I guess I am still here seeing as this comment showed up, but not sure what happened to my two previous comments…perhaps they went to another dimension…or maybe I went to another dimension! ;-)

I wouldn’t be shocked. Sympathy vote – race card?

These are democrats – nothing is beneath them.

Good doggie!

Now you need to move on to, “Mix a drink, Riot. Mix a drink. Good Girl.”

Leftie losers think that dominating the debate’s the same thing as winning it.

Cleombrotus on October 12, 2012 at 10:16 PM

Ryan and the Romney campaign and the Republican Party all fatally underestimated Joe Biden. Bad mistake.

Romeny has peaked.
President Obama will take “Joe-mentum” into the next two debates and he will regain a solid and insurmountable lead in the waning days of the campaign.

On November 6, 2012, President Obama will be re-elected by a close, but comfortable margin.

Start liking it.

And here I thought Biden was doing his Lon Chaney imitation from London After Midnight.
