Quotes of the day

posted at 9:23 pm on October 26, 2012 by Allahpundit

Four years after he was elected as a self-described ‘hopemonger’ promising a new post-partisan era, President Barack Obama is trying to claw his way to re-election with an ugly, divisive campaign in which he is playing the role of fearmonger-in-chief…

[I]f Obama is re-elected the way he has run his campaign may make it almost impossible for him to govern effectively – let alone in the spirit of the ‘better angels of our nature’ that Abraham Lincoln cited in his first inaugural speech and that Obama used to love quoting.

It was John McCain who said in 2008 that he would not ‘take the low road to the highest office in the land’.

Obama seems to believe that the load road is his only route back to the White House in 2012. It is the kind of strategy that Candidate Obama in 2008 would have viewed as beneath contempt.

***

A senior Romney strategist who asked not to be named said they expected more attacks from Obama. “The Chicago guys know that he is below 50 on both ballot and approval,” he told National Journal. “It is not that Obama likes to be a hatchet man. They think they have got to bring Romney back down by bringing his negatives back up…. But it is dangerous to have the president himself doing it.”

Madden called it “unfortunate he has to close the final days of the campaign this way.” But that is how most campaigns end, with one candidate ratcheting up the attack rhetoric and the other one trying to stay above the fray. In past campaigns, the one mounting the assault is often the one who either feels the election is slipping away or who finds it impossible to accept that the challenger is making the race so close.

***

What is President Obama doing? What votes is he trying to get? I said last week he had better find ways to appeal to more white voters, especially white working women, or he was going to lose. Well, the Obama campaign must have had a meeting and decided it needed the campaign message to center on the president’s childish, not-quite-cute name-calling, highlighted by vulgar insults. In the meeting it was obviously decided that the clumsy use of “Romnesia” could stay, but that if the president used his own mouth to call Mitt Romney a “bull*****er” that would really appeal to…? Appeal to whom? I have no idea what the Obama campaign is about, 11 days before the election.

In the campaign autopsies that will start in less than two weeks, Oct. 19 could be identified as the exact date that any remnant of Obama’s call for hope and change vanished. The president has descended to a new Nixonian level of slander and slur. Hooting about “Romnesia” and now attributing the idea that Mitt Romney is a “bull*****er” to a 6-year-old girl is where Obama has taken us.

In the final stretch, Obama’s campaign isn’t about offering hope and change but is about appealing to a coarse ignorance that he sees in voters.

***

But even looking beyond the biased analyses being published by liberal sources, the refusal of many Democrats to accept the reality of the Romney surge may be rooted in something more emotional than just skewed poll numbers. Many if not most liberals share the attitude of contempt for the Republicans that were so easily discerned in the attitudes of both President Obama and Vice President Biden during the debates. Though most Americans have rejected the attempt by the president’s campaign to define Romney as a heartless plutocrat or a monster, liberals bought it hook, line and sinker. The idea that such a person could have caught and passed Obama in the space of a few short weeks seems impossible to them not so much because they think the numbers don’t support this thesis but because they just don’t want it to be so.

Rather than debunking Romney’s wave, liberal analysts who seek to deny it are merely confirming their inability to look dispassionately at what has occurred. Democrats living in liberal echo chambers need a reality check.

***

We shouldn’t be talking about this silliness — Big Bird, “bull­s—-er” or a girl’s “first time.”

We should be talking about The Issues, we keep telling ourselves. But in the waning days of the presidential campaign, these are the issues — binders full of cultural issues that continue to divide us and by which Barack Obama hopes to win reelection…

Obama reasoned correctly that he had the majority with him, especially among women and youth, for many of whom these debates seem antiquated to not-applicable. Hence, a new Obama ad by the creator and star of HBO’s “Girls,” Lena Dunham, in which she compares voting for the first time (for a man who understands women) to, you know, “doing it” for the first time. It’s . . . what it is: a message to young women that losing one’s virginity is top of the bucket list, but first you gotta vote for the president who will give you free contraception.

The same ol’ culture wars. But, of course, women have had access to birth control for decades, and no one is trying to take it away. Anyone who suggests otherwise may have been spending too much time with Big Bird.

***

[A] funny thing happened over the next six weeks: Obama’s own cue balls shriveled. Biden had offered up a deft campaign slogan encompassing both domestic and foreign policy: “Osama’s dead and General Motors is alive.” But, as the al-Qaeda connections to Benghazi dribbled out leak by leak, the “Osama’s dead” became a problematic boast and, left to stand alone, the General Motors line was even less credible. Avoiding the economy and foreign affairs, Obama fell back on Big Bird, and binders, and bayonets, just to name the “B”s in his bonnet. At the second presidential debate, he name-checked Planned Parenthood, the General Motors of the American abortion industry, half a dozen times, desperate to preserve his so-called gender gap. Yet oddly enough, the more furiously Obama and Biden have waved their binders and talked up Sandra Fluke, the more his supposed lead among women has withered away. So now he needs to enthuse the young, who turned out in such numbers for him last time. Hence, the official campaign video (plagiarized from Vladimir Putin of all people) explaining that voting for Obama is like having sex. The saddest thing about that claim is that, for liberals, it may well be true.

Both videos — the one faking Obamagasm and the one faking a Benghazi pretext — exemplify the wretched shrinkage that befalls those unable to conceive of anything except in the most self-servingly political terms. Both, in different ways, exemplify why Obama and Biden are unfit for office. One video testifies to a horrible murderous lie at the heart of a head of state’s most solemn responsibility, the other to the glib shallow narcissism of a pop-culture presidency, right down to the numbing relentless peer pressure: C’mon, all the cool kids are doing it; why be the last hold-out?

***

Even a narrow win for Obama, though, would not reestablish anything like the mandate and amity the president enjoyed on his Inauguration Day. The reason is that, as the Obama coalition diminished, Obama no longer disguised the prejudices, inflections, outlook, and approach of the progressive movement. A confessed reader of Andrew Sullivan’s hysterical web site, the president has taken on the maximalist characteristics of the liberal blogosphere. He is scornful and contemptuous of Romney, as could be seen in his patronizing lecture on aircraft carriers and submarines during the third debate. His campaign seizes on the most trivial comments—“I like Big Bird”; “Binders full of women”—to engage in juvenile jibes that would not make the first cut at the Late Show writers’ meeting. His rallies have become self-congratulatory comedy hours in which the assembled Democrats laugh heartily at the insults and zingers the president throws Romney’s way. Obama has been on a seemingly nonstop tour of television shows hosted by late-night comics. His new attack line that the Republican nominee has “Romnesia” was, as the vice president might say, literally taken from liberal blogs. The vice president even asked his audience at a recent rally whether it had watched The Daily Show the night before. The men who hold the highest offices in the most powerful country in the history of the world have been debased to the point where they look like fill-in guests on Up with Chris Hayes.

The Democrats allowed the progressive movement’s hatred of Bush to take over their old and storied political party. That party and movement found a champion and a path to power in Obama, but the electoral forces on which his power relied were unstable. In 2008, he satisfied the left and won the middle. Once in power, though, he kept the left satisfied and lost the middle and right.

In 2012, there is just the left.

***


***

“The minute he starts playing small ball, the minute he starts making all these snippy little remarks, it’s over for him,” Steyn said. “He can’t be a dark and malevolent and attack ad kind of candidate. He has to be Mr. ‘Sunny,’ Mr. ‘Hope,’ and Mr. ‘Change.’ And because he didn’t run on any of that, and he’s basically left at 10 days before the election to resurrect that character, I think was a fatal miscalculation.”

I saw that. But did you know that between 00-08, there was only 1 out of 150 state prez contest where winning candidate did not lead in at least 1 poll in the closing weeks. That was Gore in 2000 in NM. That is what worries me. In 2008, everyone here was saying the same thing, “polls are skewed” and we are going to win. But post election it turned out all the polls were right and actually underestimated Obama’s support in…OH. The issue WAS the early vote. It seems we are doing better. But I am worried about OH. Everyone should be.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) lashed out at President Obama for playing politics with national security in the Benghazi attack after statements the president made on a Philly radio show today:

“On Monday WSJ reported that your daily briefings said the attack had arisen from a spontaneous protest. Is it true that your statements and those of [Ambassador Susan] Rice were simply repeating what the PDBs were telling you?”

- Michael Smerconish, Philly radio host

“What’s true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up. And what is true–this is something that the American people can take to the bank: my administration plays this stuff straight. We don’t play politics when it comes to American national security. So what we consistently have done throughout my presidency and what we did in his circumstance is as information came in we gave it to the American people. And as we got new information we gave that to the American people. And that includes by the way members of Congress. One of the things that always frustrates me about this town is when people go out there and try to politicize issues despite knowing that we have given them all this information.”

- Obama, today

In the words of President Obama, this statement sounds like a lot of B.S.

In an effort to look strong, this Administration has strategically leaked classified information about numerous sensitive national security programs, ranging from the raid on bin Laden, the cyber-attacks on Iran, to disrupting the underwear bomber plot. The President has also refused to appoint a special counsel to investigate breaches of national security, while demanding it for others in past administrations.

These leaks have created distrust amongst our allies and damaged operations in the field. Fearful that the reality on the ground in Benghazi cuts against the narrative that al-Qaeda has been dismantled, the Administration has been cherry-picking intelligence and intentionally misleading the American people. There was no mob, there was no riot. This was a preplanned attack by al-Qaeda affiliated militia.”

The President promised transparency, an unveiling of details regarding the Benghazi attack, but they have done nothing but stonewall the American people and their elected representatives.”

- Senator Lindsey Graham

In the words of President Obama, Obama’s statement DOES sound like a lot of B.S.

oh..back when I was 21? When it came out..
how accurate it was..considering the source..
I dunno.

Thank you..as everyone gauges things as Nixonian..
Seems to me he was an angel compared to 0.

My fathers 2nd cousin worked for the WH for years..
She is like 90 now.
I called her in 08 (never spoke to her in my life)
for her take on things.
She said..she and others expected him to be an a$$..
but she said he was one of the nicest to them..she had worked for..
Also said..basically Carter was an a piece of work…rude, arrogant ect.
Said both surprised her. Neither what she expected.
She I found through conversation is a D. So..she was being honest about her experiences. Very interesting conversation.
Then she told me she was voting for 0. I wasnt going to be rude..I listened. Thanked her for talking with me and her honesty..

Theres my take of the day. ;)

PS..I had a cat named Nixon..lol

You can win by hitting every batter in the head with a fastball, leaving the opponent with no healthy players in the dugout. After the first three or so, the dugouts empty and one side kicks the crap out of the other and the game is over, beanball guys lose.

Zero is throwing all beanballs, we’re throwing strikes. It wins, and it also looks better to win classy.

Did you really think the President wasn’t going to try to win re-election? Did you expect him to just roll over and let Romney take it?

Boy, you Republicans really overreacted to that first debate! And now your shocked that the President has come off the ropes punching with both hands!

What I want to know is why they wanted Stevens dead so badly?

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. consulate and subsequent attack several hours later on the annex itself was denied by the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

Did he know something that was going to hurt the admin or something? I mean three times!!!

True since it depends which states are hit. Bark will concentrate on those with the most EV’s of course no matter how much damage they have relative to other states.

Then again, anyone killed by the storm is an automatic vote for Dog Eater since the dead are reliable demorat supporters.

Ohio has the most undecided voters in the average…Which is good for Romney, as he clearly has the momentum. See if it can translate in to a win.

KCB on October 26, 2012 at 10:25 PM

I saw that. But did you know that between 00-08, there was only 1 out of 150 state prez contest where winning candidate did not lead in at least 1 poll in the closing weeks. That was Gore in 2000 in NM. That is what worries me. In 2008, everyone here was saying the same thing, “polls are skewed” and we are going to win. But post election it turned out all the polls were right and actually underestimated Obama’s support in…OH. The issue WAS the early vote. It seems we are doing better. But I am worried about OH. Everyone should be.

Raquel Pinkbullet on October 26, 2012 at 10:09 PM

Not sure if you’re concern trolling or not. You often seem quite…concerned. Nonetheless, the thing most people don’t understand about 2008 was that it wasn’t a huge win for Zero because of massive democrat turnout. It was a huge win because the GOP vote was so depressed. It went something along the lines of just over 38 dem to just under 32 GOP, while in 2004 they were even. This year, it’s going to be even again, or R+1 to 3. With Romney winning indys in Ohio by 10 pts., he’ll win the state.

Ohio is in the bag for Romney. No way can obama possibly win in a conservative state like that with his numbers. ’08 isn’t gonna repeat itself.

Steyn said exactly what I guessed the night after the third debate, that Axelrod and Obama were at Camp David coming up with zingers like the horses and bayonets, laughing their butts off and thinking they’re so clever and hilarious. Turns out it actually happened!

I’ll bet. It ain’t gonna be pretty. Your boy is going to lose in a landslide. I’m in Akron, Ohio, my friend and the only Obama bumperstickers I’ve seen around here are all on cars from Virginia — and parked in front of the Obama campaign headquarters. Seriously. Even my gay African American neighbors said they were going to stay home this year. Bam.

Michael barone : Romney wins

Conservative4ev on October 26, 2012 at 10:23 PM

I saw him on Greta. A serious man who knows this country like no other when it comes to the vote. He was also talking about the Ohio polls and was a little distrustful of them.

His answer of Romney when asked who wins made me feel better.

Jvette on October 26, 2012 at 10:34 PM

Hmmmm. Now that is sad. If only 0bama could stay in office, I’ll bet he could come up with a federal program to help people out with that.

cynccook on October 26, 2012 at 10:28 PM

He already did, it was included in the stimulus.

Sadly the entire thing went bankrupt because even the most educated lefties kept opening the freezer door to see if the light went out and the water never froze.

Bishop on October 26, 2012 at 10:34 PM

OT – Sorry if this has been said before, but just heard Michael Barone say on Hannity that his prediction is a Romney win.

Raquel Pinkbullet on October 26, 2012 at 10:25 PM

Undecideds typically go 70% or higher for the challenger facing an incumbent. These undecideds won’t save 0bama in Ohio.
