Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on October 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio defended GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney this morning on “This Week” for his use of the deadly incident in Libya to criticize President Obama on the campaign trail. I asked Portman about this after the father of killed U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens told Bloomberg it would be “abhorrent” to make his son’s death a campaign issue.

“He didn’t say it was a campaign issue. He said it was an issue. I mean, it’s something the American people are really concerned about, Jake. And, look, you’ve been on top of this. I’ve seen some of the tough questions you’ve been asking the White House on it,” Portman said. “Folks want to know two things. Why wasn’t the security there? And why did the administration try so hard to create, you know, the wrong image as to what happened?”

***

Tearing a few pages out of the old Clinton playbook, David Axelrod carefully defined the word “we” this morning for Fox News’ Chris Wallace: when the Vice President said in Wednesday’s debate that “we” weren’t aware of the Benghazi consulate’s requests for increased security, “we” included only the President and the Vice President – not the Obama administration at large or the State Department. You got that, right?

In response to Wallace’s inquiry about whether the President takes personal responsibility for the denial of security requests in Benghazi, Axelrod said, “these were judgments that were made by security folks at the State Department.”

***

We are going through a ‘mission accomplished’ moment. Eleven years after September 11 [2001], Americans were attacked on September 11 [2012] by terrorists who pre-planned to kill Americans. That happened and we can’t be in denial, particularly when there are compounds all over the Middle East that need to be legitimately protected at a level that security professionals ask for,” Issa said of the attack in Libya…

“If security professionals are giving the warning that they need more security, that they need to change how we do business diplomatically in the region, and that is not being heard, than it isn’t just Ambassador Stevens who is now dead, it is everybody who works throughout the Middle East is at risk if we cannot get the security level right,” Issa said on CBS.

***

1. When, if ever, did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton become aware that there was a request for more security in Benghazi before 9-11-2012?

2. Who participated in briefing Ambassador Susan Rice before she went on the Sunday talk shows on Sept. 16?…

6. When did the president learn there was no mob in Benghazi protesting the film?

7. Who reviewed the president’s U.N. speech delivered on Sept. 25, wherein he continued to connect the attack and the anti-Muslim film?…

10. And, as we started, why has Petraeus not stepped forward to defend his agency, make clear we knew promptly that this was an organized terrorist attack and correct the misrepresentations by political leaders?

***

Perhaps, then, the real explanation for the White House’s anxiety about calling the embassy attack an act of terror has less to do with the “who” than with the “where.” This wasn’t Al Qaeda striking just anywhere: it was Al Qaeda striking in Libya, a country where the Obama White House launched a not-precisely-constitutional military intervention with a not-precisely-clear connection to the national interest.

In a long profile of President Obama published last month by Vanity Fair, Michael Lewis suggested that the president feared the consequences of even a single casualty during the Libyan incursion, lest it create a narrative about how “a president elected to extract us from a war in one Arab country got Americans killed in another.”

How much more, then, might the president fear a narrative about how our Libyan intervention helped create a power vacuum in which terrorists groups can operate with impunity?

***

There was no “intelligence” suggesting a movie protest in Benghazi. All the on-site reports made plain what had happened — and by the following morning. The second highest official in the Government of the United States looked the citizenry in the eye on Thursday and said something he knew to be completely false. If Biden’s statement was agreed with Obama and not just ol’ Joe wingin’ it, they’re gonna need a bus with Truckosaurus-high wheels to get the State Department, the intelligence guys, and everyone else they’re planning on throwing under there.

Surely, even among Obama’s media sycophants, there must be someone who recognizes that all the cushy court eunuch posts are filled and, rather than being the umpteenth extra in the crowd scene, there’s a reputation, a Pulitzer and maybe a movie deal to be made here.

AZfederalist on October 14, 2012 at 10:27 PM

Yeah, I’ve heard it & I believe it (and I’m not that trusting of Dick Morris). But in fairness a lot of marriages, especially in DC, are more business partnerships.

bgibbs1000 on October 14, 2012 at 10:32 PM

That would be just blind hatred. Admirable but inaccurate.

Bill Clinton *is* a good politician, even without MSM bias helping him. And both he & Hillary can talk extemporaneously on various matters. Obama doesn’t have any of that — at all. He is 100% a media creation. I’m not going to get into a big old discussion about it because (1) I have no desire to defend the Clintons, but especially because (2) if you can’t see the objective difference between the Clintons & Obama on political ability/intelligence, no one is ever going to convince you.

Clinton=shrewd narcissist.

Obama=arrogant narcissist.

Hence, Clinton had a somewhat successful two terms. Obama will be stuck with one disastrous term.

I am afraid that Petreas is perhaps like Christopher Walkin on cowbell on SNL – he had a tactic in Iraq that was successful and he has tried to make everything fit that tactic.

Unfortunate.

BTW notice how gumbo has become completely unmoored. He use to play the damn we are going to lose schtick pretty well, but the news has gotten so bad with his man Obama that he is grasping as straws.

I am really enjoying this – the Colorado profs are calling this 330 – to low 200 fo Romney. They think Obama will lose Minnesota. Haha!!

If low-info voters had the ability to “wonder” or put 2 & 2 together, they wouldn’t be low-info voters.

Honestly, based on the Howard Stern interviews with Obama voters, I think the threshold to qualify as an informed voter is pretty low (i.e., knowing that Palin isn’t Obama’s VP).

Zomcon JEM on October 14, 2012 at 11:04 PM

Yep

“The apparent advantage of being a Democratic candidate and holding the White House disappears,” Berry noted, ”when the national unemployment rate hits 5.6 percent. The incumbency advantage enjoyed by President Obama, though statistically significant, is not great enough to offset high rates of unemployment currently experienced in many of the states.”

Well, there’s mental (i.e. having a “second childhood” better than the first) and there’s MENTAL (i.e. having a second batch of kids starting at say 50 with a second wife who is 30).

I went with the first option and had a V when we were done having kids to put a big old roadblock in the way of the second option under ANY circumstances.

Still married to the first wife – which in large parts of California is considered abnormal.

David Axelrod, Lefty Lumberjack

http://spectator.org/archives/2012/03/09/david-axelrod-lefty-lumberjack

And the full story of that history has some deep roots in the Old Left, from New York to Chicago. Ax and Obama are the marriage not only of two modern liberal Democratic success stories but also of the Left’s old guard, progressives and communists, with the current generation. Obama and Axelrod and their world are a reflection of Democrats’ decades-long marriage with some unsavory elements, making for a perverse political culture that too frequently goes unexamined and acknowledged, especially by protectors and enablers in the mainstream media.

Won’t be tomorrow after the new poll from Gravis showing Obama +2 is added.

Was reading today that the word for states like Ohio and Colorado that seem glued to Obama is “sticky.”

BTW, from the early voting totals, it looks like IA is now a lock for Obama.

gumbyandpokey on October 15, 2012 at 12:00 AM

And if Romney wins FL by 1 pt, then he will lose VA and OH and NV and CO and IA and NH.

Florida was supposed to be a lock and if all he can do is squeak out a single point win, Obama wins the election in a cakewalk.

So celebrate being ahead in FL by a single point and see what that gets you on election night, lol.

Exclusive Poll: Romney up 7 points over Obama after first debate

In Colorado, Gravis Marketing shows Obama +2, so CO is off-the-table for Romney.

And Zogby’s new national poll has

The poll carries a margin of error of 2.2%.

As the last line of my post suggests, I feel shame just for knowing the term. (I wonder if it’s because I went to Catholic school?)

This kind of misstatement Trolling in a desperate attempt to help Obama is why I’m here.

Just agree with it, make stuff up and it will have no one to talk to.

A lock..I don’t think you know what that phrase means..

wargamer6 on October 15, 2012 at 12:03 AM

“a lock”. Just like Walker was a lock to lose? Ha fail gumballs.

wargamer6 on October 15, 2012 at 12:03 AM

BTW, from the early voting totals, it looks like IA is now a lock for Obama.

gumbyandpokey on October 15, 2012 at 12:00 AM

And the opposite is true for Ohio…

RedCrow on October 15, 2012 at 12:04 AM

Won’t be tomorrow after the new poll from Gravis showing Obama +2 is added.

Was reading today that the word for states like Ohio and Colorado that seem glued to Obama is “sticky.”

BTW, from the early voting totals, it looks like IA is now a lock for Obama.

Man, you wounded his soul. He’s still recovering from the trauma drama of the whole thing.

Solaratov on October 15, 2012 at 12:06 AM

Sometimes he can be interesting but last night I thought he crossed a line, and I posted on the thread to that effect.

22044 on October 15, 2012 at 12:02 AM

Well, I imagine that from his point of view, I crossed a line last night.

Even though that Floriduh Department of ‘Education’ thread today vindicated me.

Lanceman on October 15, 2012 at 12:06 AM

He needs to pay, and so do his minions.

I could imagine that too. What’s interesting is that I yelled at him after you wrote the post you’re referring to. As part of my rant, I let him know that I didn’t care for his complaints, even if they were legitimate.

I don’t mind his complaints. I have not lived his life. And he has not lived mine.

But I know many blacks who live in this little insular world where all they can see is black.

I know an affirmative action ‘teacher’ who happens to be black. By which I mean his degree is via affirmative action. He’s like any one of those black ‘teachers’ who be sayin’ that dey can go to jaya fo’ disrespectin’ da president. Dialect and all.

He has a tendency to say ‘disrespectin’. I told him disrespect is a noun, not a verb. Teacher.

Gravis out with a new FL poll that shows Romney only up 1.

So we have both PPP and Gravis saying Romney leads in Florida by a single point.

Romney loses Ohio and Virginia and Colorado and Nevada and Iowa.

Momentum has swung this weekend.

A photoshopped word balloon rising from the ambassador Stevens’s grave would say it all:

“Tell the truth, Obama.”

profitsbeard on October 14, 2012 at 11:07 PM

“Tell the truth, Barack”, since he and Hillary call the ambassador “Chris” all the time.

Dire Straits on October 15, 2012 at 12:10 AM

Not sure if you saw the posts, but Koolaid and I chatted about it. (Don’t forget the outrageously suckful Lions, and there pitiable victory over the Eagles, today!)

Today, the Tigres batted .229. Lest we forget, our closer “Papa Gordo” gave up two 2-run shots in the bottom of the ninth on Saturday! (So, we got that goin’ for us…which is nice.)

Verlander on Tuesday, the first of three in D-town. So, we should get past the Spankees–but NO World Series victory unless we start hitting.

My original post had Lions, and Tigers, and R&R up in the polls, and Ahhhhhh!!

If Romney wins 1 of the following states, Romney wins the white house…

MN, PA, MI, WI, IA or OH…

He only needs 1 of these states…

22044 on October 15, 2012 at 12:19 AM

When the candidates are even/close, in any poll, the challenger wins. Any sound pollster or analyst knows this.

Also, too much focus on the polls. This year people lie to the pollsters like never before.

Schadenfreude on October 15, 2012 at 12:20 AM

I just had a “conversation” with a lib on fb. She claimed executive bonuses are causing inflation. I’m not sure she can even read the words Quantitative Easing, but I tried. God help us all.
