Quotes of the day

posted at 10:43 pm on October 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

Obama’s Chicago-based brain trust had intended to highlight four years of “solid, steady progress” in the final days of the race, several Democrats told POLITICO, with a healthy dose of hammering Romney — a strategy that had given Obama a lead going into that fateful first debate.

Instead, the pressure is now on Obama to prove himself — and oh so late in the game. That led his campaign on Tuesday to release a detailed, bullet-point plan for his second term — a formal agenda his team had long resisted despite appeals from the likes of Bill Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and James Carville, and an army of basic-cable liberals, who said the president needed to spend less time cutting down Romney and more time elevating himself…

“Maybe it’s not too late, but wouldn’t it have been cool to have a great document put out the day after the convention when everyone was riding really high, instead of now?” asked polling analyst Erica Seifert, who wrote several memos with Carville and Greenberg urging Obama to define his second-term agenda more clearly.

***

It’s almost certain that President Obama released his agenda, titled “The New Economic Patriotism,” the night before a Donald Trump blockbuster announcement designed to derail Obama’s reelection. He had to have been hoping dearly the Trump stink-bomb would take all the oxygen away from any second-day stories about the “plan for jobs and middle-class security” the campaign published. It’s not just that the plan is the first voters have heard of any Obama has for his second term — two weeks before Election Day — but that the brochure is about as cheesy a cheap shot as they come.

Unfortunately for Obama, Trump’s pathetic gambit failed to trump the headline that Obama is trying to pass off recycled retreads as new plans and that he was forced to do so after losing the first presidential debate to Mitt Romney, plunging in the polls and sending Democrats into a state of nauseated panic. How, they asked the campaign, could the president possibly win a second term in such a tight race without having outlined an agenda for the next four years? And so an eleventh-hour glossy appeared to answer the charge that Obama had nothing in mind for 2013-2017, with pretty pictures and pabulum to prove it. Brace yourself, the plans include a tax plan that cuts the deficit and creates jobs, energy made in America, a reminder of all that is good about ObamaCare, a pledge to stop Medicare or Social Security from being privatized, reviving manufacturing, investing in education and growing small businesses.

***

Why would the president wait until 14 days before the election, after the conventions and the debates, to release his plan? And then print 3.5 million copies of it, making the plan a publishing phenomenon to rival “Dreams from My Father”?

It’s the panicked realization that his campaign’s attempted destruction of Mitt Romney hasn’t worked and isn’t enough to win. The NBC/Wall Street Journal poll this week found that 62 percent of people want major changes in a prospective Obama second term. Four percent — that’s almost down to Obama administration officials and immediate family — want more of the same.

So the president needed someone to get on QuarkXPress to paste together “a new plan” and then run down to FedEx Kinko’s — pronto. But he couldn’t hit print during debate season, lest he give his opponent another target. Surely Romney would have loved to cite the risible document as Exhibit A for Obama’s status-quo presidency.

***

Mr. Obama likes to say he inherited “the most severe economic emergency we’ve had since the Great Depression,” but then he claims that it didn’t matter that he staged a two-year fight to remake one-sixth of the economy and threatened to remake another four-sixths.

If recessions following financial crises really are worse than normal, as the President also told the Iowa editors, then why didn’t he take special care to postpone legislation that would add new costs to business, undermine confidence and thus weaken the recovery?

Mr. Obama didn’t really answer the Register’s question, so we will. He didn’t focus on the economy because he didn’t and still doesn’t understand how the private economy works. He doesn’t understand that incentives matter, or how government policies and regulation can sabotage growth. He really believes that government is the engine of economic prosperity.

***

Why was the first debate so toxic for the president? Because the one thing he couldn’t do if he was going to win the election is let all the pent-up resentment toward him erupt. Americans had gotten used to him as The President. Whatever his policy choices, whatever general direction he seemed to put in place he was The President, a man who had gotten there through natural gifts and what all politicians need, good fortune.

What he couldn’t do was present himself, when everyone was looking, as smaller than you thought. Petulant, put upon, above it all, full of himself. He couldn’t afford to make himself look less impressive than the challenger in terms of command, grasp of facts, size…

But maybe these questions are all off. Maybe what happened isn’t a mystery at all.

That, anyway, is the view expressed this week by a member of the U.S. Senate who served there with Mr Obama and has met with him in the White House. People back home, he said, sometimes wonder what happened with the president in the debate. The senator said, I paraphrase: I sort of have to tell them that it wasn’t a miscalculation or a weird moment. I tell them: I know him, and that was him. That guy on the stage, that’s the real Obama.

“President Obama really hasn’t given us a vision for a second-term agenda. Just a couple of days ago he came up with a slick new brochure, you know, with less than two weeks left, to say, ‘Oh, I do actually have an agenda,’ ” Ryan said.

“It is a slick—well, comic book—that was his word,” the Wisconsin congressman repeated after a man in the crowd shouted out the suggestion. “To me, a slick repackaging of more of the same. And look at what it has gotten us.”

Yes, that’s exactly what I’m torn about; I want Romney to use it to do the things that I want him to do if he can’t get congress to agree, but on the other hand I don’t want any president governing by decree.

But of course you are right. We can’t let the left get what they want by cheating and then refuse to make up for it because we refuse to cheat. It leaves them in a position to get what they want and then block us from reversing what they do.

I do hope Romney uses executive orders to accomplish the things I want accomplished.

I’m pretty certain he won’t have to use them. Immigration reform is going to be such a major issue that the left will beg to be on board… they’ll demand to be on board. The issue is that we need to hold tough to Romney’s promises, E-verify, enforcement, no amnesty, no Dream Act…etc. We will likely get stuck with some of the Dreamers, but we can keep it down to only those who were really eligible, with NO criminal record.

The same goes for entitlement reform. The left will demand to be part of the process. We just make sure they toe the line.

We must repeal ObamaCare.

The War Planner on October 26, 2012 at 12:11 AM

The fact that Romney and Obama are tied 48-48 in that NBC/WSJ/Marist poll bodes real well for Romney imo. If I’m reading the breakdown correctly, 75% of the respondents were reached by cell phone, which infers that the age of the respondents was skewed to the younger voter. Age was not broken down specifically, yet you can still make the inference.

Also interestingly, the last poll in September had it completely the reverse, with 75% of the respondents reached by land line, and in that poll Obama was up by 5%. But, and this is a big but, that was BEFORE the first debate.

Why didn’t they keep to the same contact scheme of 75% land line? Why would they shift to a contact scheme that would hit a demographic that would tend to favor Obama (just rhetorical questions,as the answers are self-evident).

The take away is that even with this skewed demographic sample, there was a substantial shift toward Romney, and in reality probably a bigger one than this poll indicates.

As a % of traffic, I guarantee the green room got 2% of the traffic. If the goal is to monetize the site (and that should be the goal), making it front and center makes sense.

But it doesn’t seem to be thought out too well. Headlines were useful for the quick/snarky stuff. The blog for the rest.

If the green room are intermediate takes, then it’s wasted effort. IMHO. And that appears to be the goal.

This site is pretty poor at monetizing anyways, just slapping more ads everywhere isn’t the best idea.

With what is going on in the ME,, J.E Dyer is an absolute asset to this site. At a critical time. Make her a weekend writer. Her posts are lenghty, detailed and intense. Better suited for more read time. I don’t hang here much on the weekends because it’s slow, and honestly jazz bores me. I would rather have more intensity on the weekends when I have more time. Jazz’s pieces like the jump are cool. But on substance,,, naaaa. I tune out.

just slapping more ads everywhere isn’t the best idea.

Not really… Here’s the beauty of Ad Block, it keeps you from seeing the ads, but it doesn’t stop the ads from being counted as viewed.

we know that barry’s not very good at math (which is why we’ll Never see his transcripts)..but he basically seems like a one-note player, one-trick pony

the ayn rand thing just shows that he just a natural born collectivist. Collective Salvation, etc. etc. etc. And his Nation Economic Patriotism is Barry Investing in all things Good for the Collective.

or, as Althouse posted (on another subject)

“I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, ‘I had a dream! I had a dream!’ 26How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds? 27They think the dreams they tell one another will make my people forget my name, just as their fathers forgot my name through Baal worship. 28Let the prophet who has a dream tell his dream, but let the one who has my word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?” declares the Lord. 29“Is not my word like fire,” declares the Lord, “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?

What I like best about JE is that she responds when you ask her direct questions on her posts. That is always a plus in my book. ;)

Great recording, Jackie. Guitar, piano, harmonica combination. You just don’t hear those sort of things currently. An the audio quality was excellent for 1938.

I don’t, because every time I asked what was with the Guatemalan pool boy reference, nobody offered to enlighten me :)…and am still completely in the fog as for this Guatemalan pool boy story :)…..dang, and I like a good gossip :)…

Explore ‘Over Jazz’ on you tube a little, Jamie, I think you’ll like what you find. They use the best recordings and they have many that are very rare or obscure. I like them very much. :)

Django Reinhardt was self taught, he was the ‘father of Gypsy Jazz’, tremendously popular in the 30′s and 40′s and only used two fingers of his left hand when he played the guitar. He was really amazing. :)

I also think that Romney is going to make a difference on some of the domestic issues, like immigration, which will be a massive relief, both from an economic perspective and from a security perspective. :)

thatsafactjack on October 25, 2012 at 11:41 PM

I think Romney is a smart workaholic, and after Zero’s absentee-in-chief “rockstar” performance, we stand a good chance of righting the ship.

I think so, too. It will be wonderful to have a real executive in charge, and particularly wonderful to have one that loves this country in charge. :)

In the early days (I’m sure you remember this) The Green room was a place to discover talent. I think all they are doing is taking the next logical step in that process, bring the talent forward. That’s my take on it anyways…

SWalker on October 26, 2012 at 12:28 AM

Except most of the talent was reportedly canned… Look at that section. Three posts from AP and one from Guy Benson, a Townhall/NRO guy everybody knows…
