Quotes of the day

posted at 10:17 pm on November 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

After more than a year of campaigning, endless political advertisements, two conventions and four debates, the presidential election is almost over. The big decision of 2012 will soon be in the hands of the voters. The choice Americans make will shape great things, historic things, and those will determine the most important and intimate aspects of every American life and every American family. All presidential elections matter. This one matters a great deal.

It matters to the senior who needs medical care but, thanks to ObamaCare, can’t find a doctor who is taking new Medicare patients. It matters to the men and women who once had good-paying jobs with benefits but now work part-time with no benefits just to put food on the table. It matters to the college student graduating this spring with a heavy load of debt and few opportunities to pay it back. It matters to the single mother who lives in fear of foreclosure as her employment prospects dwindle…

This requires a different direction, a change from the course of the past four years. It requires that we put aside the small and the petty, and demand the scale of change that we deserve: real change, big change. I pledge that my presidency will bring about that kind of change—confronting the problems that politicians have avoided for over a decade, revitalizing our competitive economy, modernizing our education system, restoring our founding principles.

***

An Obama second term means that the movement toward European-style social democracy continues, in part by legislation, in part by executive decree. The American experiment — the more individualistic, energetic, innovative, risk-taking model of democratic governance — continues to recede, yielding to the supervised life of the entitlement state.

If Obama loses, however, his presidency becomes a historical parenthesis, a passing interlude of overreaching hyper-liberalism, rejected by a center-right country that is 80 percent nonliberal.

Should they summon the skill and dexterity, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan could guide the country to the restoration of a more austere and modest government with more restrained entitlements and a more equitable and efficient tax code. Those achievements alone would mark a new trajectory — a return to what Reagan started three decades ago.

***

Poll after poll, I generally see the same thing. Romney has an edge on the economy. That includes most of the state polls…

I do not know of an election where the electorate was so singularly focused on one set of issues, and the person trusted less on them nevertheless won…

Is it possible to win a presidential election while losing the independent vote? Sure. The independents basically split down the middle in 2000 and 2004, which left the outcome up to the relative strengths of the two party bases. But that is not what I see right now. Instead, I see a Romney margin among independents that ranges between 5 and 10 points. Prior to the 1980s, I could see the Democrats overcoming that, but not in 2012…

[T]his is a different approach than the poll mavens will offer. They are taking data at face value, running simulations off it, and generating probability estimates. That is not what this is, and it should not be interpreted as such. I am not willing to take polls at face value anymore. I am more interested in connecting the polls to history and the long-run structure of American politics, and when I do that I see a Romney victory.

***

Early voting is the best indicator we have for base enthusiasm. The weeks of early voting that now precede Election Day are the best chance for Democrats to win elections. This is not a time when undecided or even many persuadable voters go to the polls, but instead partisans show their ardor.

The latest Pew study and a slew of others show that what had been a huge advantage for Obama has been erased and maybe even reversed…

Romney leads widely among the most passionate voters – 9 points in the most recent Politico/George Washington University survey of battleground state voters – and Republicans have managed to match Democrats when it comes to contacting voters directly.

Team Obama staked nearly as much on ground game superiority and getting out the vote as it did on the “kill Mitt” strategy. Again, the Blue Team did not deliver.

***

Obama is in big trouble in Wisconsin. He is spending his last weekend in a state that last went Republican in the 1984 Reagan landslide.

Team Romney is going hard after Pennsylvania because both internal and public polling show significant movement toward Romney in recent days. Yesterday, Rep. Ryan and Sen. Marco Rubio drew large and enthusiastic crowds in Pennsylvania. On Sunday, Romney will hold a campaign rally in the Philadelphia suburbs. Who would have thought that Obama would spend the last days of the campaign defending a solidly blue state, while Romney makes a play for another one?

***

So assume:

(a) Total PA turnout is up 3% over 2008. Philly County comprises 11.5% of total PA electorate (similar to 2004, less than 2008).

(b) Romney wins non-Philly county 54-46. (Slightly better than Bush ’04, who won 52.5 to 47.5)

Then:

Obama MUST net 433k votes out of Philly County to win. In 2008 he netted 478k votes. In 2004 Kerry netted 410k votes. In 2000 Gore netted 350k votes.

Tweak the assumptions to lower Philly turnout, increase non-Philly turnout, increase Romney share of non-Philly. And Keystone State goes red.

***

Obama may need to do something Democrats have almost never done in the past nine decades: win a higher share of the vote in [Ohio] than he does nationally. Almost always, the GOP nominee has run stronger in Ohio than nationally. That’s not entirely surprising in a place that served as one of the birthplaces of the Republican Party and where two native sons, William McKinley and his legendary political strategist Mark Hanna, stamped the GOP’s modern identity as the pro-business party of small government in the realigning election of 1896.

Since 1924, the only Democratic presidential nominees who attracted a higher share of the popular vote in Ohio than nationally were Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Hubert Humphrey in 1968, George McGovern in 1972, and Kerry in 2004. And of those four, only Johnson (at 1.8 percentage points) improved on his national vote by more than 0.6 percentage points in Ohio. Since World War II, the Democratic presidential nominee has carried, on average, almost exactly 1 percentage point less of the popular vote in Ohio than he did nationally.

That’s obviously a challenging precedent for Obama, who is running at best even with Romney, if not trailing slightly, in most credible national surveys. Even Obama, while winning Ohio comfortably in 2008, drew 51.4 percent of the vote here, pointedly less than his 52.8 percent national showing. All of that suggests Obama would be defying history to take Ohio in an election where he wins the national popular vote by a hair, or tries to amass an Electoral College majority while losing the popular vote altogether. “Relying on Ohio is not where you want to be as a Democrat,” says Terry Nelson, the national field director in 2004 for George W. Bush, who clinched the presidency by defeating the Democratic nominee in Ohio by 118,000 votes after an epic investment from both sides. “I would not be sleeping well.”

CNN also reported today that Romney was leading in Ohio by 13 points among voters who planned to vote on Tuesday, so that indicates a pretty massive turnout to make up any difference.

That same CNN poll has Obama winning Ohio, even with Romney winning the election day portion. That’s what happens when you don’t take early voting seriously enough. Romney had the money. No excuse to be so far behind in the early voting/absentees.

gumbyandpokey on November 3, 2012 at 2:05 AM

You’re so full of crap. When reporting on THAT poll, CNN’s John King said Romney is well-positioned to win Ohio. Even the hack media know Romney is moving in for the kill. The EV votes won’t be enough for Obama. He’s not creating a big enough margin. He only won OH by 250,000 in an historic Democratic year. He’s down 100,000 from his EV totals heading into election day. And GOP turnout is going to be huge.

Here’s some logic for ya:

1. Republicans are NOT going to constitute just 31% of the electorate in 2012 (our percentage in 2008). That was a near historic low.

2. Dems are NOT going to constitute 39% of the electorate in 2012 (see #1). That was a near historic high.

3. Independents are breaking for Romney from 5-10 points in the vast majority of polls. (Obama won Indies by 8 in 2008).

Obama is having trouble in any poll with less than D+5. OH is traditionally an R+1 state. You do the math.

If Obama’s ground game is so GREAT, why is he seeing large drop-offs in early voting from 2008? Why is he defending blue states, and hastily calling volunteers for GOTV in PA? Why is he spending money in Michigan and Minnesota? Why is he drawing fewer than 5,000 to rallies in states in he carried easily in 2008?

Why did he have to pull out of NC so early when there was a D+11 electorate there in 2008 and he went to the trouble of hosting a convention there? Why did he have to relocate his convention speech from “Panther Stadium” at a last-minute cost of $800K?

Why is he borrowing $15 million from Bank of America?

Why is he focusing on social issues that only 13% of the electorate care about?

Why is he desparately and pathetically clinging to Bill Clinton, an impeached liar who continually undermines him with clever put downs?

Why is his campaign so nasty and negative?

The answer to these questions: He’s losing.

No. Its not. Maybe people think it is cause I’m trying out my new etch a sketch to express my individuality.

Awww, lighten up, John. It could be PTSD from sitting on the border – in a tank – staring at Russians – sitting in tanks.

If Romney cant win on Tuesday after running such a focused campaign against a weak incumbent in such a bad economic environment, the Republican party should be disbanded.

It doesn’t look as if the GOP will the Senate. Harry Reid will be a major p
Impediment to getting anything accomplished. Romney will have govern via EO.

Slade73 on November 3, 2012 at 4:00 AM

Just to say Kenyan is inaccurate because within Kenyan there are several dominant tribes. In terms of broad ethnic background you have the Bantu and the Niloti. On the overall the Niloti dominate min Kenya, but in the case of Obama Sr, based mon his general physiognomy, he was Bantu. In the case 0f Rwanda as an example the Tutsi were Niloti, whereas the (insert tribal name here) were Bantu. This racial conflict has gone on since about the time Norwegians(vikings) were picking on the Irish and were receiving bruised noses as a consequence.

Factoid: Clint Eastwood made it acceptable to criticize The Won. Since then many have been able to more readily express their opinion about Obama.

I bought some “Gingerbread Oreos” today…and they are really good.
They’re a ‘limited edition’, though, so if you see some you’d better get them. I don’t know how long they’ll be out.

Solaratov on November 3, 2012 at 4:12 AM

That’s very true. Clint rode into town, ridiculed the bad guy, called him out into the street, and thoroughly trounced him for all to see. Gotta love Clint. :)

Mystery or, perhaps, a delightful illusion, full of fire and fate and

I am reluctant to try them after the 100th Birthday Limited Edition cookies. They were disgusting. Also, you may be lying about how good they are.

It’s against the law to lie about Oreos.

They’re a national tradition.

Read through the ‘closing arguments’ thread…

The teeeensiest of advice: up the meds…..

Just assume I’m drunk at the keyboard, and/or borrow some of Jackie’s meds.

I never tried the birthday ones. Were they the multi-colored ones?

But I like the Gingerbread. YMMV

You know… all in all, that’s the third time you’ve been an insulting jerk.

I’d suggest you might lay off the drink, or take some ‘meds’.

Oh goodness. I owe you an apology. I didn’t look closely at your name and I thought you were this guy. I don’t really like gingerbread cookies, but I will buy some for my mother, based on your recommendation!

The outside was regular looking, but they didn’t taste the same. The inside had different colored specks in white filling, but I don’t think the filling was the problem. I think the outside was supposed to taste like cake.
