Quotes of the day

It is highly unlikely that the president can win this election if he is losing Independents by double digits. And there aren’t any indicators suggesting that Democrat turnout will be large enough to compensate for that.

Which leads to the third point: voter enthusiasm and energy is with the GOP. A recent Pew poll had Republicans with a 14-point lead over Democrats in terms of vote likelihood.

Put these three elements together — Obama’s current vote share, Romney’s lead among Independent voters and overall GOP enthusiasm — and it strongly suggests that Romney will win the popular vote.

***

Republicans have never been more confident that President Obama will lose re-election, according to the latest National Journal Insiders Poll, but Democratic conviction their party’s leader will earn a second term still hasn’t wavered.

On average, GOP insiders polled by National Journal gave Obama slightly less than even odds he’ll occupy the White House another four years. The 4.6 average score – based on a 1 (no chance at re-election) to 10 (virtual certainty) scale — was a precipitous drop since the last Insiders Poll, a late September survey in which Republicans pegged the score at 5.8. That poll was taken before the first presidential debate in early October, after which Mitt Romney’s support surged. In April, Republican Insiders rated Obama at exactly even odds…

“This is the first time that I really feel the momentum swinging to Romney,” said one Republican. “It has been a slow progression for the Republican since early September, but it is steady and no matter what Obama throws at him, it doesn’t hurt.”

Said another Republican, “The trend is definitely in favor of Romney — with independents leading the way.”

***

Republicans look and sound notably more energized and exuberant than their Democratic counterparts as they swagger with self-assurance toward the electoral finish line. They point out the recent expansion of the swing states map, with one-time Democratic strongholds like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Minnesota suddenly rated as toss-ups, and receiving money and attention from both parties. The GOP also notes that the Quinnipiac Poll giving Obama a big lead in Ohio showed Romney with a similarly comfortable advantage (five points) among Ohio independents—and in a state so closely divided between Republicans and Democrats the candidate who carries independents will almost certainly prevail. Moreover, new unemployment numbers due for release on Friday won’t help the president much if they show another slight decline, but can hurt him badly if they push up once again above 8 percent (as many economists expect)—putting a serious, last-minute dent in the administration argument about steady, relentless improvement.

Meanwhile, the sharply contrasting tone of the two campaigns as they make their closing pitches to the American people hardly suggests greater confidence on the part of the Democrats. Though Romney talks of “big change” and grand plans for the future, the Obama machine continues to emphasize the harshest possible personal attacks on the character of the GOP nominee. Most recently, Democrats have even pushed the absurd idea that Mitt wants to abolish FEMA and to leave disaster-stricken citizens to their own devices. While the Republicans released the single most optimistic and inspiring ad of the whole campaign (a little masterpiece of mood and editing called “Momentum”) the Democrats continue with the surly, hostile, aggrieved attitude that served the president so poorly in the third (and final) debate.

***

If Romney wins, or at least if he peels off a significant number of those who voted for Obama last time, it will be precisely because lots of people “never really voted” for Obama in 2008. As should be painfully obvious, an awful lot of people pulled the level for Obama in 2008 because they were tired of Republicans; because they were bored by the wars; because they didn’t like McCain or Palin, or both; because Obama seemed optimistic and reasonable; because the financial crisis hit in September; because they didn’t listen to a word the Democratic candidate said but were nonetheless convinced by the vapid “hope and change” stuff and the (always empty) promise to rise above “politics”; and, yes, because he was black. (Why this is so controversial is beyond me: I know people who are very proud of themselves for having been, as they put it, “part of history,” who admit that Obama’s race was a considerable factor in their vote, but who recoil when you feed back to them what they just said in plain English.)

One of Obama’s biggest mistakes — perhaps his biggest mistake — was to conclude that he had a mandate for his brand of progressive change. He did not. The Obama campaign was always, in fact was deliberately, divorced from his politics. A smarter, less egotistical man would have realized as much. Obama did not.

***

But let’s say Gov. Mitt Romney ekes out wins in virtually every battleground state. What will Democrats say to make themselves feel better about themselves the next day?

1. The economy just sucked. It was too badly broken for Obama to fix it, or his solutions (targeting banks early on but not forcing them to help ordinary people more) were not sufficient. In retrospect, how could a president possibly win re-election with unemployment this high and with a stream of forecasts about anemic growth over the next year?…

3. Obama fatigue. As much as they liked him personally, they look back at his presidency and feel a struggle. It’s hard to look back at the last four years and smile; his presidency, through maybe no fault of his own, really, was necessary to get the country back on track, but he had to do a lot of things that were very unpopular, and because he governed from principle, and not politics, he paid a price for it…

8. The idea that Obama could have and should have done better, even given all the circumstances he had. His failed to live up to his promises to change Washington. He was not the Obama people voted for in 2008; he couldn’t possibly be that person.

***

He thought he had “a gift,” as he is said to have told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He thought he had a special ability to sway the American people, or so he suggested to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

But whenever he went over the the heads of the media and Congress and went to the people, in prime-time addresses, it didn’t really work. He did not have a magical ability to sway. And—oddly—he didn’t seem to notice.

It is one thing to think you’re Lebron. Its another thing to keep missing the basket and losing games and still think you’re Lebron.

And that really was the problem: He had the confidence without the full capability. And he gathered around him friends and associates who adored him, who were themselves talented but maybe not quite big enough for the game they were in. They understood the Democratic Party, its facts and assumptions. But they weren’t America-sized. They didn’t get the country so well.

***

DAVID AXELROD: “I have put my mustache on the line and I am very confident that I will still have this mustache on November 8.”

***

Perhaps Mr. Romney’s most appealing trait is his optimism: We have problems, a whole lot of them, but they are solvable. Americans have always believed that. Yet the sentiment seems unusual given the current President who won with large Democratic majorities but has spent four years blaming his predecessors for every ill as if they are intractable.

Mr. Romney has treated voters like adults and offered them a true choice about the future. He is promising change, and for once that abused term doesn’t mean for the worse.

Haven’t read the comment section yet, but I’d like some thoughts on this…

If the Unemployment Rate goes down in the morning…how exactly is that possible? I thought you needed at least 200,000+ to keep up with population…Yet if it goes down again this time…we’ll have had 3 straight months of job creation in the 100K-150K range and yet the rate went from 8.3 to less than 7.8…HOW THE F IS THAT POSSIBLE?

The confusion rises from the fact that the unemployment rate and the jobs gain figure are calculated by two different surveys. The first one just polls random people, and last month they were able to somehow magically find 800,000 more people working than the previous month. That’s why the rate went down. Who knows, maybe those BLS guys can perform the same “magic” again this month.

canopfor, this Michigander calls BS on that freep poll. The freep is so deep in the tank for Obama they’ve had the bends since 2008.

Michigan might go blue (boohoo) but NOT by six points. No way.

my eeeyore flag tells me the unemployment will stay the same or go down for dear leader with a revision up 2-3 weeks later…

the LSM will go into hyperventilation for sure that dear leader will have the election in the bag, theres no way mitt can win now, yada yada yada

cmsinaz on November 2, 2012 at 6:42 AM

I would count on the UE rate to be around 7%. Anything to get the Failure-in-Chief reelected – ANYTHING.

Rom needs to stress that the layoff number went up 41% this month.

I know that it was popular back in 2008 to say that Obama succeeded despite his race. But it seems to me that, had Obama been white with the same set of qualifications and accomplishments, he would never have been given a second look. More than anything, the color of Obama’s skin had a lot to do with his rapid rise to power. Obama himself constantly fueled the incessant focus on his skin color. He brought it up whenever he could, often suggesting that it was such a hardship for him to have to overcome. Those who refer to Barack Obama as an “Affirmative Action Pres.” are right on the money. I believe all the focus on Obama’s race was a very sad thing, and we see today that we are even more racially polarized, it seems. The color of someone’s skin should have nothing to do with who they are. I am sick of liberals and their obsession with race. I want race to be a non-issue.

Hi everyone. Still without power here in NJ, very sporadic Internet on my iPhone. We are all fine, but going a bit nuts. Curfew from 7pm-7am to discourage looters. They should just shoot them. We have gas for cooking and hot water, but no heat. Many worse off than us.

If I can’t vote on Tuesday I will completely loose it! All my R&R signs stayed in the ground through the storm. He’s going to win, I can feel it!

I don’t know how Gallup comes up with a 7. My guess is that somehow the number will be beaten into something that is meant to make Barry looks good going into Tuesday, but doubt if they can be too blatant.
Bloomberg is forecasting 7.9% and 125k new jobs. I was speculating BLS will roid it up.

I was referencing this hilarity, Chris’ conversation about AGW-deniers, and extended it to rightists in general (I love how the Koch brothers were mentioned!):

MSNBC host Chris Matthews went on a wild rant against those who don’t believe in man-made global warming in the wake of Hurricane Sandy Tuesday. During his excoriating comments, Matthews targeted the left’s favorite super-villains — the Koch brothers — in particular.

Speaking with Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA) and Michael Oppenheimer of Princeton University, Matthews began by warning that “there’s no other planet to go to if the atmosphere begins to be destructive of our living here.”

Congressman Markey wasted no time in referencing the Koch brothers, saying they want to keep “tax breaks” for big oil but “do away” with breaks for alternative forms of energy, and that they’d keep us dependent on foreign oil by modifying fuel efficiency standards.

Matthews interjected:

Well, Professor Oppenheimer, back in the ‘60s, we called such people pigs. Pigs. No, really, they don’t care about the planet, they don’t care about the destruction of war. All they want is what they got, their stuff. And they want more of it.

“Is that what we’re facing here, just greed? I’m not talking about the guy working in the coalmine. That’s hard work. I’m talking about people who won’t listen to you, won’t listen to science because they want more stuff.”

Even Professor Oppenheimer seemed a little uncomfortable by the turn of events, telling Matthews he isn’t big on “name calling.”

Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard spoke with Mark Holden, Senior VP and General Counsel of Koch Industries about the interview, and related:

“Representative Markey’s comments about Koch’s views on corporate subsidies were false – we are on the record as opposing all subsidies, including subsidies to oil companies. Likewise, Rep. Markey, who opposes expanded oil and gas exploration and production in the US, falsely claims that Koch is somehow increasing dependence on oil from foreign countries, ” said Holden via email.

According to Koch Family Foundations, Sheppard adds, the Koch brothers have pledged or given roughly $1 billion to “further cancer research, enhance medical centers, support educational institutions, sustain arts and cultural institutions, and conduct public policy studies.”

Holden reportedly concluded by noting that Matthews has something of a “reputation” for making “emotional and ill-advised comments.”

He wouldn’t have to beg me, I’d actually pay him for the right.

Reuters was right – 7.9%

Flora Duh on November 2, 2012 at 8:33 AM

At least it’s not 7% like in Gallup iiotic report…

Accusing FOX of using Libya story for political gain. And beeing quite the azz about it.

How did Carlson, Doocy, or Kilmeade (assuming that was the lineup) react to him? Did he threaten to spit on anyone?

He’s like Olbermann – hopefully he’ll get canned from Fox!

7.9

Jobs + 170,000

I’ll what’s even dumber. Cumulus Radio has given him his own daily show, from 9 a.m. – Noon Central. They bumped Laura Ingraham off to my local station to air his garbage.

It won’t last long.

DAVID AXELROD: “I have put my mustache on the line and I am very confident that I will still have this mustache on November 8.”

That’s because you’re a fluking liar.

Remember to remind people of this over the weekend folks – unemployment is higher now than it was when Obama took office – and except for a “questionable” report last month, has remained that way for the past 4 years.

ME! Pick ME!

If there was ANYONE deserving of a cigarette punch to the mustache, it’s Gerry.

Albeit it’s a pretty damn long list…but he’s easily in the top 10.

“Well, Professor Oppenheimer, back in the ‘60s, we called such people pigs. Pigs.”

I think Chrissy was having an acid flashback. They called the police pigs. Pigs.

How does Fox News Channel put up with that? They should push back, and push back hard. Why is their employee allowed to go around and bash the organization.

Most recently, Democrats have even pushed the absurd idea that Mitt wants to abolish FEMA and to leave disaster-stricken citizens to their own devices.

From what I’m reading about NYC, people cold hungry, Dumpster diving, Mayor hosting marathon, long gas lines, help no where to be found abolishing FEMA may be the wave of the future. Just don’t give Mayors control.

Herb on November 2, 2012 at 9:21 AM

OT/

I heard FEMA was coming up short with the big bill NY has submitted, think if they had some of the money that was squandered on O’s green energy hoax, how many Billion? to his friends!

I want to see Clint Eastwood spit tobacco on a Obama-biden campaign poster.
It would make me feel better.
