Quotes of the day

“I don’t crow about bad polls, I don’t crow about good polls. I just want trends,” said Ron Kaufman, a top Romney adviser. “And the bottom line is the trends are kind of good for us. That’s all that matters at this point. There’s a long way to go.”

“It’s been an enjoyable journey,” he added. “I think we’re having more fun right now than they are.“

***

Obama won [Ohio] in 2008 largely because of a healthy lead among independents and a highly enthusiastic base’s turning out votes. Right now Romney is leading big with independents, has a more enthusiastic base, and is drawing crowds in Ohio that rival Obama’s. While he is down 2.5 points in the polls, the average poll is assuming 2008 turnout which is unlikely to repeat itself this year. Adding the fact that early voting is trending more Republican than in 2008, there is a lot of reason for optimism that this race is much closer than the current polls suggest. Not bad for a candidate who was declared dead in the state just a few weeks ago.

***

Among Keystone State voters in our poll who say the economy and job creation is the most important issue that will influence their vote, voters prefer Romney over Obama by a 54% to 40% margin. This is clear evidence Romney is winning the jobs argument. Voters in Western Pa, who tend to be blue collar, working class Democrats, care about jobs and resent the President’s war on coal. In the Pittsburgh market, Romney is on track to run up huge margins. In the vote-rich Southeast collar counties around Philadelphia, Romney is neck-and-neck with Obama because these more affluent, better educated suburban voters identify with Mitt Romney and a lot of what he stands for. They know he’s not an extremist, know he cares about kids and women, saved the Olympics and wants deficits under control…

This is why our statewide polling was the first to show Romney with an improved image in the Commonwealth after the first debate – 48% now view him favorably, a huge reversal from pre-debate polling. And this is a clear indication even in a “blue” state like Pennsylvania voters are smart enough to know that having a leader in the White House who understands job creation is more important than having the letter “R” or “D” posted outside the Oval office door.

***

The psychology of the race has shifted, a prospect that advisers to Mr. Obama had long fought. They sought to define Mr. Romney as an unacceptable choice, hoping to keep enough voters who supported Mr. Obama in 2008 from seeing Mr. Romney as a plausible alternative…

Here in Florida, the largest competitive state with 29 electoral votes, supporters of Mr. Romney say they have noticed a drastic change since the Oct. 3 debate in Denver, where his strong performance came as he stepped up his advertising in Florida.

“For a long time, the Republican rationale was ‘I just want Obama to lose,’ ” said Brian Ballard, a co-chairman of the Romney campaign in the state. “He opened people’s eyes at the debate. It moved the needle for the pro-Romney vote, not just that we can’t have four more years of the same.”

***

[Obama supporters] at the George Mason University event described various means used to cope with political panic, whether prompted by a poor debate performance or a particularly gnawing poll…

“I felt like I was going to cry [after the debate],” said Nancy Aboulmouna, of Arlington. “I have not yet. Not yet. I just wanted to. I talked to my parents and friends. But then I found out that some of them were Romney supporters and it got worse from there.”

Faced with a campaign narrative not to their liking, some Obama supporters simply tuned out. Johana Posada, 25, of Arlington, said she stopped paying attention to the polls when they began to go south for Obama after that first debate.

***

The Republicans are now the ones offering ideas of progress or reform, while the Democrats fiercely fight to protect the established order of entitlements, tax hikes, and obeisance to unions, greens, and feminists. Even when Obama and Biden have been highly caffeinated, they have not stated their plans and goals for a second term. They are too busy painting a socialist-realist mural of Romney and Ryan as maniacal reactionaries. They are too preoccupied with protecting subsidies for Big Bird, Planned Parenthood, and windmills.

Four years ago, President Obama and Vice President Biden were bursting with plans. Obama said he would cut the deficit, middle-class taxes, and health care premiums, while also creating a new entitlement to health insurance. He said he’d revamp America’s energy, education, and immigration policies for the 21st century. He delivered a speech in the early months of his term saying he’d put America on a “new foundation.” His 2011 State of the Union address was devoted to “winning the future.”

But all of these big dreams have crashed against the granite wall of reality. The deficit is up, the price of fuel and health care premiums has increased, incomes are down, and tax increases loom. Obama is exhausted. His political capital is spent. The boldest proposal he’s put forward recently is hiring another 100,000 teachers. That doesn’t even rise to the level of small-ball. It’s mini-golf.

***

Flash-forward to 2012 and all we’ve seen from the man who promised us hope, change, and a new kind of politics is a nakedly cynical divide and conquer crusade that’s only gotten worse in its closing days. While Romney focuses his closing argument on the future, his agenda, and the realities of governing, our president is literally going all in on Big Bird, contraception, Binder-gate, “Romnesia,” and aids flanking him at rallies holding signs that read: “Women’s Health Security.”

This smallness and naked desperation is not only apparent, it’s familiar. I don’t mean to pick at an old scab, but in the closing days of the ’08 campaign, we saw the same kind of behavior from John McCain. He knew he was losing and in a desperate bid to gain traction, his message became erratic (suspending the campaign) and small (Joe the Plumber).

Probably with good reason, Barack Obama is also not acting like a winner. So bad is his behavior, in fact, that he’s given Romney a massive opening to declare Obama’s behavior “unpresidential.” Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that Romney was beaten senseless for his lack of substance? The secret’s out: Obama has no second-term agenda.

***

Sure, the Republicans still insist on bringing up trivial, peripheral distractions like Benghazi, Obamacare, multi-trillion-dollar debt, unsustainable entitlements, permanent long-term unemployment, and the looming January 1 “fiscal cliff.” But Democrats know that, if Romney gets his way, there’ll be nothing at the bottom of the fiscal cliff to break your fall except binders. In RomneyWorld, when the mullahs drop the big Iranian nuke, there’ll be nothing crawling out from the irradiated rubble except cockroaches and binders — or some hideous mutation of the two: bindroaches, vile creatures prowling the land on three pairs of jointed rings ready to snap shut on your daughters’ ankles as they attempt to access the last Planned Parenthood clinic in America…

Some years ago, the then–French defense minister, Jean-Pierre Chevènement, complained that the Americans were committed to “the organized cretinization of our people.” I’ve never accepted the thesis, but I have to say that, in the final weeks of his reelection campaign, the first man in history to spend $6 trillion and leave no trace is doing a magnificent job of cretinizing his own base. In the binders of history, this one will be worth its own tab.

***

Eileen touched her friend’s arm. “Most women I know, whether they’re for Obama or Romney, they feel the same thing,” she said. “[Abortion is] a distraction. That whole Gloria Steinem thing is old.”…

Romney’s “binders full of women” line, an awkward phrasing that inspired reams of mockery on the Internet, wasn’t changing any minds among the women I spoke to. Democratic partisans saw it as more evidence Romney was out of touch; Republican partisans saw it as of a piece with his business background. “Anyone who’s ever been a professional, ever, knows that’s how you get resumes: in a binder,”43-year-old Republican stay-at-home mother Michele Moss said, rolling her eyes. Only someone who’d never been in the business world — like Obama — would fail to understand that.

The “binders” line didn’t register at all among the undecided women.

***

Via Gallup.

***

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) delivered a withering assault on President Barack Obama on Sunday, asserting that the president hasn’t laid out a concrete agenda for a second term and is instead making up catch phrases like “Romnesia.”

“That fires up his base, people who are going to vote for him anyway,” Rubio said on ABC’s “This Week.” “But for the rest of Americans who are trying to make up their mind who to vote for, what they’re wondering is, ‘Well, that’s very cute Mr. President, but what are you going to do for the future?’”

Remember when you started to turn on me after that first debate I was so sure I’d won and I wee-weed on my knees and begged you not to because I’d go berzerk?
Well, you did anyhow and my days have gotten worse and worse and now you see I’ve gone completely out of my mind.

And they’re coming to take me away Ha Ha
They’re coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time, and I’ll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
And they’re coming to take me away ha ha

You thought when my poll numbers started to crater that it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I said that going below 50% would make me flip my lid, right?
You know you laughed, I heard you laugh, you laughed, you laughed and laughed and then you turned your back on me, but now you know by November 6 I’ll be utterly mad.

And they’re coming to take me away Ha Ha
They’re coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds and basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
They’re coming to take me away ha ha… …

K-

I am not nuts.

In some traditions, baptism is also called christening,[5][6] but for others the word “christening” is reserved for the baptism of infants.[7]

Infant baptism[1][2] is the practice of baptising infants or young children. In theological discussions, the practice is sometimes referred to as paedobaptism or pedobaptism from the Greek pais meaning “child”. The practice is sometimes contrasted with what is called “believer’s baptism”, or credobaptism, from the Latin word credo meaning “I believe”, which is the religious practice of baptising only individuals who personally confess faith in Jesus, therefore excluding underage children. Infant baptism is also called christening by some faith traditions.

Most Christians belong to denominations that practise infant baptism.[3] Denominations that practise infant baptism include the Roman Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, Oriental Orthodoxy, Armenian Apostolic Church, Assyrian Church of the East, the Anglican churches, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodists, some Church of the Nazarene,[4] the Reformed Church in America,[5] the United Church of Canada, the United Church of Christ (UCC), and the Continental Reformed.

Groups within the Protestant tradition that reject infant baptism include the Baptists, Apostolic Christians, Disciples of Christ and the Churches of Christ, most Pentecostals, Mennonites, Amish, Plymouth Brethren, Seventh-day Adventists, most non-denominational churches, and other Arminian denominations. Infant baptism is also excluded by Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), Jehovah’s Witnesses, Christadelphians, and Latter Day Saints.

An individual person still must make a decision to “ingest” (read or hear) The Word.

The Heavenly Father isn’t picking and choosing whom to give faith to, or whom not.

listens2glenn on October 21, 2012 at 10:55 PM

The listener may be receptive to the Word, but that willing reception is a result of the Holy Spirit’s work, not anything that the individual has done for himself. ” God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved” “When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. …” Dead people are incapable of doing anything for themselves, they cannot make themselves receptive to the Word, that is the work of the Holy Spirit. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. ” i.e, the faith we have comes from God, not ourselves. None of us can claim to be a bit “less dead” or to have performed some work to make us worthy of faith, such as making a decision for Christ. Christians are called upon to sow the seed of the Word, where it grows is the work of the Spirit.

Your second statement touches on the more difficult doctrine of predestination. The statement you made above takes the comfort given to believers that God knew those whom he called before the creation of the world and turns it around to say that he thus rejected others.

Happy Birthday, ALT. Best wishes and many returns of the day.:)

As to ‘Sasha’ there is a product at PetCo called ‘Wee Wee’ that is an enzymatic and it will take that odor out of your carpets for you. Its best poured directly on the spots, let stand, and then put a little in your rug doctor tank as you clean the carpet. It won’t hurt your machine, and it will do a good job for you. The product removes the odor as the carpet dries, and it had to dry all the way through, even the padding beneath to be effective. Hope this helps.

I definitely didn’t do the subject the justice it deserves. Not hitting on all cylinders tonight. This has been a sticking point between denominations for centuries.

Predestination was even argued amongst the various Lutheran bodies in the early twentieth century. It split apart the Synodical Conference…

It’s great that you get to see them regularly. I just posted to ALT about a product called ‘Wee Wee’ available at PetCo that will remove that odor, in the case of clothing, spot treat the fabric and then wash as usual. :) *Be careful that it doesn’t effect the color.*

OmahaConservative on October 21, 2012 at 11:36 PM

Uggghh. Use Simple Green instead of Rug Doctor shampoo. It was the only thing I could find to get rid of the cat piss smell…

OmahaConservative on October 21, 2012 at 11:27 PM

Steam it with water and white vinegar, with one of those newfangled steam cleaners — even the cheap ones will work. If it’s too permeated, steam w/ vinegar and water, then use carpet shampoo machine dealeo. Then take several gallons of kerosene and burn the shit in your back yard, preferably with lots of neighbors and hot dogs handy.

Sasha has a pissing problem-but she’s old and was abused before we adopted her 9 years ago. She’s staying.*rented a rug doctor and am gonna hit the carpet tomorrow.

annoyinglittletwerp on October 21, 2012 at 11:24 PM

…you don’t think it is a urinary tract infection?…have two cats that were adopted…one at 7 and one at 9 years of age…both came into the house pooping in the litter box…but pissing elsewhere. (I will not tolerate a kennel smell in the house…and cat piss is not an aphrodisiac!)
Vet gave me medicine for that…and told me to take a half of vitamin C pill…grind it and sprinkle it into their cat food periodically…Ok!…whatever…haven’t had a problem since.
A couple of weeks ago a lady at work who has a year old cat wanted to know if I would take it, because all of a sudden it was peeing around the house, and she couldn’t afford the Vet. I told her what the Vet suggested and a week or so later was thanked because the daughter could keep her cat!

..late to the dance, fellow babies, but before we descend into rock music citations, etc. (meant reverently) but consider this:

Is it just me or is that annoying scrunt Stephanie Cutter working wa-a-a-a-a-y to hard in that clip with Schieffer. She always puts me in mind of the old anecdote about Winston Churchill who was approached by an irate constituent who exclaimed, “Mr Prime Minister, if you were my husband, I would givie you poison in your tea!”

To which Sir Winston replied, “..and Madam, if you were my wife, I would drink it!”

hillbillyjim on October 21, 2012 at 11:41 PM

It’s even more effective to kick the pissers out of the house. Funny, they don’t piss on stuff at my cousin’s house, but then again, they don’t allow stuff to pile up…

Tonight’s ad report, from the Sunday Night Football game:
Nearly all ads were for George Allen &/or against Tim Kaine
Maybe 1 or 2 ads for Romney by a SuperPac. No ads for Obama
About 50/50 between ads for/against Maryland’s Question 7

This report brought to you by Bank of America. /

There ain’t nothing worse than the smell of cat piss. I took a shirt out of the dryer and put it on and smelled like cat piss all day at work…

OmahaConservative on October 21, 2012 at 11:50 PM

omg, i just ran the vid with Schieffer. The romney guy has to spring for a better rug. look at yourself in a mirror guy.

then Schieffer interrupting him with the binders thing

and to top off the evening i hear that barry is going on letterman and leno for the umpteenth time….

prezy eye-candy. he’s playing the losers in the press corpse like a bad violin

kakistocracy…that’s the word. ‘leadership’ by the worst of the society. Now we know, that when the american idol ‘voters’ turn out on election day…there is still a good chance that they will go for the eye-candy…we get the government we (or they) deserve…i.e. a kakistocracy

The secret’s out: Obama has no second-term agenda.

Not true. He certainly has an agenda. And it is:

Second verse, same as the first.

He wants to keep doing what he’s been doing to America the last four years.
