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?’”

Yep.

I don’t think Romney would be a good President but will vote for him over Obama. And I’m a huge social conservative, so I voted for Santorum in the primary.

But I’m a realist first and foremost and don’t think there’s any way that Romney will win. I believe the polls and think they show a clear Obama victory in Ohio, which means an overall victory.

There was plenty of poll whining here and on other conservative sites in 08 and everyone looked like a fool in the end. Same thing will happen here.

So any way here’s what I did with my day today. Not my choice mind you. I was helping my better half. I spent the day at a outdoor festival in the middle of the most liberal section of the city. The ones of you who know me, know which city. I was without a doubt one of the only Conservative there. Thousands of folks. Freaks, leftest’s and some nice liberals. Of course I talked smack with everyone of them I could all day. The better half hates this about me, but it’s who I am. I never cower away from conversation or confrontation. Their choice as to which generally up to the person or persons I am speaking with. I must say I was surprised as to how demoralized many of them are. The is an underlying seething hatred for 0 that shocked me. They are deeply distract and they blame him. I do not mean to suggest that many of them will go for Romney, some will as they see him as acceptably center left and good on pocketbook issues. Many however simply will not participate this go round. They are deeply disappointed. Many will blindly vote for 0 . No changing their minds about it. They are truly vile and despicable creatures. I do not consider them fellow countrymen anymore. They are my adversary, dare I say my enemy, the enemy within. I wish no ill towards them. I wish them gone. 0 does not have the momentum of the rollers behind him lockstep anymore. He will lose because of it. I observed far too much to record here but on balance my determination is they are demoralized. 0 is all but done. 0 is done!

Some of the folks there today seemed to want to put me in my place. I don’t think they have thought it through well. In order to put a free man such as myself in place, you must use force, you must bring weapons to bear against me. I inturn have weapons for defense against just such tactics. This is really not a good solution and I would never consider it cavalierly. We as a Nation have done it that way before. It is tremendously painful and not really the way to go. Having said that, I cannot convince them not to vote for 0, what chance would I have convincing them they won’t like putting me in my place. It’s a quandary. Pray we never know.

I’ve said this many times here at HA about various artists: I never like these musicians for their personal lives or their ideologies. They have one singular talent that sets them apart and attracts me, their musical skills.

Gary Moore drank himself to death. His blood alcohol level was 30% higher than it would have had to be to kill him. The woman who had been his partner for some time had the unparalleled horror of discovering him dead, in bed, after a night out in Spain, at about 4AM. He died of a massive coronary. Obviously he was having personal problems, made some bad decisions, and displayed poor judgement, at least to the quantity of liquor that a human should consume.

Gary Moore was a vastly talented guitarist and I enjoy his work very much.

Gerbil Farmers are probably mad at Richard Gere for ruining the reputations of the fine furry creatures they raise.

It took one Gerbiphile to ruin everything.

As The Years Go Passing By – Moore

I bid you all goodnight. Its been a pleasure, as always. See you soon.

thatsafactjack on October 22, 2012 at 2:33 AM

Tremendously painful. Yea.

If I said how I really view these people, and how to deal with them, I’d be be banned fer sure.

My biggest mistake was learning history. It makes me hate them. If they had thier way,,,

I recipricate the feeling. I would have no problem taking up arms.

They won’t leave us be. And that pisses me off. Bigtime. A long life of being effed with.

I remember what life was like in stages. Rotary phones to now. Liberties lost over the years. My line in the sand is drawn.

No more.

Nite Jackie,

You are amazing.

I’ve said this many times here at HA about various artists: I never like these musicians for their personal lives or their ideologies. They have one singular talent that sets them apart and attracts me, their musical skills.

Gary Moore drank himself to death. His blood alcohol level was 30% higher than it would have had to be to kill him. The woman who had been his partner for some time had the unparalleled horror of discovering him dead, in bed, after a night out in Spain, at about 4AM. He died of a massive coronary. Obviously he was having personal problems, made some bad decisions, and displayed poor judgement, at least to the quantity of liquor that a human should consume.

Gary Moore was a vastly talented guitarist and I enjoy his work very much.

thatsafactjack on October 22, 2012 at 2:21 AM

I wasn’t very surprised to see such a comment from Gary, just a little disappointed, but obviously that has nothing to do with his talent. It just goes with the territory of being a fan of rock ‘n’ roll that musicians we like are often f*ck-ups and/or not very bright, doesn’t it?

Many talented people seem to have tortured souls. The list is long.

Obama’s campaign theme for the last weeks.

Barack Dusty Obama.

With Moochelle fiddling in the backround.

wolly4321 on October 22, 2012 at 2:48 AM

Yep.

I am not the type to boycott artists because of their stupid commentary or personal choices, but I do not begrudge those who do, because I can understand the sentiment.

Inflation & taxes..

When I was a young lad, my dad used to give me $1.00 and send me walking 1/2 a mile to the store to buy him a pack of cigarettes. I could spend the change on candy.

I’m only 44.

wolly4321 on October 22, 2012 at 3:01 AM

I fished and hunted, unencumbered. Now, where I grew up,, I’d need 20 permits and licenses and I’d probably be trespassing.

There’s not a square inch of river that’s free.

wolly4321 on October 22, 2012 at 3:18 AM

Fireballs were 1/¢. Candybars $.25. hell, just a few years ago I could get ground beef for $1/lb.

Hamburger helper is pricey today.

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…

For the last two weeks, I think Romney should hit home his background as a fixer. Increasingly, I kind of see Romney as a modern-day Cincinnatus, putting down the plow to help put old Rome back in order.

I’ll take the guy who fixed the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics and prevented the U.S. from an absolute embarrassment over the affirmative-action hack who’s yakking about Big Bird, Planned Parenthood, and binders.

Thank you, ma’am!

kingsjester on October 22, 2012 at 6:50 AM

way to go KJ :)

cmsinaz on October 22, 2012 at 6:55 AM

I must say that pic of SOME of the bowing that Obama has done is JUST FREAKING DESPICABLE.

I never, never thought I would see the day when AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT would BOW before foreign leaders.

Utterly disgusting and pathetic……..he must be replaced. And the sad part?……he’s not at 25% in the polls.

PappyD61 on October 22, 2012 at 6:57 AM

Hasn’t he bowed to more than just the leader pics on Drudge?

PappyD61 on October 22, 2012 at 6:58 AM

PappyD61 on October 22, 2012 at 6:58 AM

I think he has, too.

kingsjester on October 22, 2012 at 7:00 AM

polls show dear leader better handling afghanistan???

puhleeze

cmsinaz on October 22, 2012 at 7:06 AM

so will dear leader get the first question and last closing statement?

ha…andrea mitchell one of the msdnc crew who has complained that mitt needs to be specific says dear leader can’t be specific because his views are too controversial

hypocrite
