Open thread: Sunday morning talking heads

posted at 8:01 am on November 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

Surprised to see neither O nor Mitt scheduling any last-minute face time on the Sunday shows. Maybe it’s in the works and hasn’t been announced yet. If not, then the heaviest GOP hitter on tap is Rob Portman, who’ll give Ohio one last nudge in the right direction. For the Democrats it’ll be the Axelrod and Plouffe Show, now in its 200th week or so. Reason 8,357 to hope Romney wins: If he does, we almost certainly won’t see either of them next Sunday.

The line-up via the LAT:

State of the Union With Candy Crowley 2012 election: Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D-Chicago). 2012 election: Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio). Panel: Former Gov. Haley Barbour (R-Miss.); Steve Elmendorf, democratic strategist; Dana Bash; Gwen Ifill, PBS…

Face the Nation 2012 campaigns: David Gergen, Harvard; Rich Lowry, National Review; Dee Dee Myers, Vanity Fair; Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal. Panel: Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg; Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez; Stuart Rothenberg; Larry Sabato; Anthony Salvanto.

Meet the Press Obama campaign strategy: David Plouffe, White House advisor. Romney campaign; the Virginia battleground: Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.). Panel: Mayor Cory Booker (D-Newark, N.J.); Joe Scarborough; Republican strategist Mike Murphy; Savannah Guthrie; Tom Brokaw.

This Week With George Stephanopoulos 2012 election: White House advisor David Plouffe; Romney campaign advisor Ed Gillespie. Panel: George Will; Cokie Roberts; Ronald Brownstein; Donna Brazile; Matthew Dowd.

Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace Obama campaign: David Axelrod, Obama advisor. Romney campaign: Rich Beeson, Romney campaign. Panel: Karl Rove; Brit Hume; Joe Trippi; Jeff Zeleny.

I really have to question some of my fellow Hot Air members. Those that are saying that Hurricane Sandy changed everything for Obama. I have lived on the Gulf Coast for 30+ years. I have gone through and I do mean the eyewall of four major Hurricanes. I can tell you, there is not one thing involved in this situation that will change a persons mind about who they will be voting for. So, more than likely NY and NJ people will still vote for Obama, nothing changes. The perception from the outside will not change either. Those that were going to vote for Obama will come up with a thousand reasons to not change their vote. No matter how bad the situation becomes. This is true of Romney supporters as well. My point is, Romney was ahead before the hurricane and remains so now. I look forward to our new President, Mitt Romney.

You expected Obama to have a lead in every poll today.

Not to be tied.

Because if Momentum was really with him, why did it stop?

Why isn’t he at 50%?

budfox on November 4, 2012 at 10:13 AM

Obama went from being down in the RCP average pre hurricane to being ahead post hurricane. That is a FACT. This close to an election a 1-2 pt shift meand the difference between winning and losing. And that late break went to Obama.

Romney isn’t in a better position in ANY poll post hurricane.

gumbyandpokey on November 4, 2012 at 10:22 AM

The shows sound boring, just keep feeding me pictures of Romney Ryan crowds and I’ll be happy. Oh, and I realize he might not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you could buy a Kid Rock CD (maybe as a Christmas gift) it might be nice for the guy. Between his work for the troops and his campaign work he has been very impressive.

Cindy Munford on November 4, 2012 at 10:22 AM

Check drudge. He is linking to the last poll for MI. Romney has slight lead over Obama who is at 46%. And the ballot proposals are going down in flames mostly. Prop 2&4 were union driven ballot measures and they are failing. Prop 3 would change the MI constitution to require green energy for 25% of electricity production. This is also failing. 2 term senator dem Stabenow is only at 50%. Maybe Romney will have coat tails.

On Thursday, the CIA excluded Fox News from a briefing for a small group of reporters in which they provided a timeline from the night of the attack in which they explain that at 5:15 a.m. (7 hrs and 28 minutes after the attack on the consulate began) five mortars are fired at the annex, three of them striking the roof and killing Woods and Doherty…”

I have had it with Gumby.

Gumby says momentum is with Barry “because of the storm”.

And that’s only because Gumby believed the BLS report would move again in Barry’s favor. But it did nothing.

So now, the storm is all.

It’s a shifting target because he’s not even sure WTH he’s said in the past, other than “Barry wins”.

He knows the threads are too deep and have no way for people to keep track of what he’s previously stated.

It’s SOP for trolls who are desperate to be seen an authority.

StephanieCutter on November 4, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Steffie, Steffie, Steffie. Do you really think the rest of us only read Hot Air and nothing else?

After lagging for months at historic lows, Mitt Romney’s personal popularity has advanced in the final weekend to its highest of the 2012 campaign, rivaling Barack Obama’s.

[snip]

Just 40 percent saw him favorably as recently as late August, and it was essentially no better, 44 percent, after the party conventions.

The presidential debates clearly helped him: Sixty-two percent of likely voters describe Romney’s performance in the debates as a factor in their vote, and those who do so are a broad 23 points more likely to see him favorably overall, 61 percent vs. 38 percent. Substantially fewer cite Obama’s handling of the response to Hurricane Sandy as a factor in their vote, 49 percent.

[snip]

METHODOLOGY – This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2012, among a random national sample of 1,809 likely voters, including landline and cell-phone-only respondents. The survey, conducted after Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, includes interviews with 283 likely voters in the Northeast. Results in that group are in accord with their pre-storm levels.

Partisan divisions, Democrats-Republicans-independents, are 33-29-34 percent among likely voters; they were 39-32-29 percent in the 2008 exit poll. Source

Get a clue, pgal.

Oh My…

Friday, in a shocking move, Local 150, an AFL-CIO member and the largest local in the 8th congressional district of Illinois, endorsed Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, a Tea Party favorite, for reelection to Congress. The union had endorsed Barack Obama for President, but favored Walsh over his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth. Walsh is also endorsed by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the taxpayer watchdog’s group, the National Taxpayers Union, which makes for an amazing bipartisan trifecta…

Walsh is one of the most conservative members of the House and the 8th district is not a conservative district. His opponent, Tammy Duckworth, was Obama’s Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs in 2009…”

Basic fact is no one save Nate Silver and the open prog crowd, are looking to be out on a ledge.

Ras pulled back because his reputation is getting murdered.

Gallup pulled back and used the storm for cover.

WaPo/ABC went into “tie” mode

Politico/BG “tie” mode

They can’t show Obama with a decisive lead, and their reporters are telling them the enthusiasm is with Romney.

You can hear/read it from people like Halperin, who counches everything.

The news media is either sympathetic to the left/dems, or afraid of the prog reaction.

I mean, Halperin sent a tweet out after Morning Joe taking back his show comment that “the storm won’t move the polls”, to “it will help”.

It wasn’t even an hour later!

That’s fear or reprisal.

The SOS demand for a special prosecutor and investigation into Obama and his administration’s culpability and negligence is signed by Jim Hobson, MG, USAF (ret.) Air Commando, Joe Stringham, BG, USA (ret.) Special Forces/Ranger, Larry Bailey, Capt. USN (ret.) SEAL, Dick Brauer, Col. USAF (ret.) Air Commando, Tom Bradley, Col. USAF (ret.)

The push for an investigation is also signed by a number active duty military officers.

Benghazi was a preventable tragedy magnified by the loss of American lives and the cover-up that has followed. SOS now seeks justice for their fallen brothers in arms.

Look, the storm definitely stalled Romney’s surge. It became the news, and the election fell in back. But he is coming back again, just in time, and absolutely NO storm bounce for Zero. Romney surges today, surges tomorrow, wins Tuesday. Polls ALWAYS overstate democrat advantages, especially state polls, so all ties go to Romney. It’s simple math. Add in Zero’s disastrous “revenge” gaffe, a decisive win for Romney. Lawyers will be able to stand down by midnight Tuesday.

From the article:

The list comes as a Military Times survey revealed that active duty, National Guard, and military reserve members support Romney over Obama by a two to one margin.

Even Rove did not give off any confidence. How can this country vote for its own destruction?

AnnaS on November 4, 2012 at 10:57 AM

Rove already predicted a Romney win.

Resist We Much on November 4, 2012 at 11:04 AM

Rockshine, that was my take on Chris Wallace too. Even Rove did not give off any confidence. How can this country vote for its own destruction?

AnnaS on November 4, 2012 at 10:57 AM

It’s all about turnout period. Every conservative/republican needs to vote. No excuse not to.

gophergirl on November 4, 2012 at 11:01 AM

Its called their best poker faces, give nothing to the other side. I’m with GOPgirl, just vote and we will win. But, I suspect I’m preaching to the choir.

DDay on November 4, 2012 at 11:06 AM

Fox News Sunday’s entire theme seemed to be to depress and suppress the Republican vote and enthusiasm.

Did not expect to see that.

Rockshine on November 4, 2012 at 11:01 AM

Their only goal is to seem authoritative and ‘unbiased’. They are not cheerleaders, so don’t expect them to be. On Wednesday, all they will say is ‘well, Romney’s victory was too close to call’.

Ultimately, they live in a media bubble and are more afraid of looking foolish than wrong.

Luv, all that I can say is this:

If Obama wins, I will redouble my efforts of the last 4 years to ensure that people like you have a living hell for the next 4.

Please don’t tell me that you’re a conservative and hate Obama. As a libertarian, I truly don’t care.

Make sure that you memorise this well:

FUND YOUR UTOPIA WITHOUT ME.

I will not lift a finger to help an Obamabot. Not a one.

I said it 4 years ago and I mean it ever more so now.

Workingclass, thanks, but this will do nothing to change the minds of Liberal Jews, I have tried for years. You must remember, our people have been looked down on for many years. And its only been fairly recent that the situation has changed. I’m working on them, its a slow process, but one at a time. My friends in Israel usually do vote more conservatively.

DDay on November 4, 2012 at 10:46 AM

Before the debates I convinced a liberal Jewish voter from Seattle (Old school friend I hadn’t seen in 40 years) to switch to Romney/Ryan on two issues…The economy and Israel.

It can happen.

Dispatch mail-in poll has overestimated Dem performance in OH by 1.5-2.5% in last 2 elections. Shows Obama by 2. So… #deadheat

Resist We Much on November 4, 2012 at 11:15 AM

I didnt hear Hume and Wallace predict an Obama win. Granted they placed a lot of importance on the RCP average of polls but I think RCP is running behind. Also Hume didn’t put a lot of faith in the state polling people.

Vince on November 4, 2012 at 11:16 AM

I think they need to include CBS Sunday Morning in the Sunday morning talking heads thread. I like many of the stories on CBS Sunday Morning, but when they delve into politics, it’s normally from a Democrat perspective. I know more people who watch this show over any of the other Sunday shows and it has been running slanted for Obama stories a lot lately. Today we had the Chester C Arthur birther conspiracy and the misunderstood moderate Republican that has been shunned by the Republicans. The best part of this story was when he whined that members of Congress work harder than people think. They are working all through their recesses and spend all of that time talking to constituents. After 18 years on the job, he now has to try to find a job. No mention was made of his guaranteed retirement money and all of the other perks he’s gotten over the years.

CBS even managed to slip Obama into a story about an Abraham Lincoln movie. This was the most ridiculous plug. Right in the middle of the segment a picture of Obama popped up in the corner and then we were told that the movie was based on a book that Obama had famously read. We all started laughing because it sounded so stupid and out of place. Are we to be amazed that Obama reads or just that he has read a book about Lincoln. What an amazing feat, Obama read a book!

Ibanez Lotus on November 4, 2012 at 11:17 AM

Well, Chris Wallace and Brit Hume predicting an Obama win on FNS. …

Rockshine on November 4, 2012 at 10:48 AM

Your first mistake is watching FNC. Your second mistake is announcing it publicly.

“There’s a real sense of enthusiasm for the Romney Campaign… And, on the other side, the excitement and enthusiasm is not there.”

Conservative4ev on November 4, 2012 at 11:30 AM

This close to an election a 1-2 pt shift means the difference between winning and losing.

gumbyandpokey on November 4, 2012 at 10:22 AM

Sounds like you just admitted that prior to Sandy you thought Obama was losing. Otherwise your phrasing would have been the 1-2 pt shift was the difference between winning and winning bigger.

So you’ve been spewing b.s. all this time, just as most have been telling you. Thanks for finally admitting the truth.

Cindy Munford on November 4, 2012 at 11:39 AM

DDay on November 4, 2012 at 10:46 AM

She and I talked at length about Israel (She had been there a year ago)

We talked about ecumenical outreach (especially thse made by Catholics to our Jewish bretheren) begun by JPII and continued with Benedict XVI…and how Jewish scholars are having dynamic impact on biblical studies (an academic hobby of mine)

When I explained the Catholic argument of the constitutional threat to religious liberty…and why it matters it cut through the clutter of the usual liberal social stances.

I asked her if Big Govt. has the constitutional right to decide how Orthodox Jews (she’s a moderate) in America practice or decide their liturgy and used the Canadian Govt. attempting to legally prevent circumcision.

By tying these arguments together I explained that for Jews and Catholics this is a liberal attack on the identity & liturgy of two foundational biblical religions. The Catholic position is that it’s time for Catholics,Protestants and Jews to work together to strengthen our common heritage and stand against this very real secular threat abroad and here in North America.

She had no idea of the Obama Administrations stance that religious practice is confined to the 4 walls of the church & the impact this has on Jewish schools since it would give Govt. the power to impact Jewish teaching within their own schools.

I nailed it by asking her…Do you want the federal Government to force Rabbis to teach the Palestinian version of ME history in your Jewish schools because that is one issue is that Catholics are fighting about for their schools and for us our faith is not confined to sundays at Mass but includes charities,schools and hospitals since apostolic times…a Jewish tradition we expanded on in early chistianity.

It was a great dialog…and should be ongoing for all of us imho.

Hilarious.

If any lefty were coherent and honest enough to have a civil, intelligent conversation about Benghazi, I’d ask her or him to explain why s/he has any confidence, based upon evidence and not emotion nor conjecture, that 0dumba was the least bit concerned about protecting the lives of our people there.

Don’t know if you’ve heard, but the judge granted Orange County 4 extra hours to vote today to make up for the time that was lost yesterday because of the suspicious packages that were found at a Winter Park polling place.

But, knowing Dems as we do, that won’t be enough for them.

New to this information- which side is requesting an extension, and why? (all the Tv’s in my house are otherwise occupied right now)

BettyRuth on November 4, 2012 at 12:17 PM

I notice that progs are distancing themselves from the 0; I guess they don’t want to admit that their hero’s collapse represents a repudiation of their ideology, so they want to blame water boy.

The abject and brutally obvious failure of the man they claimed was “the smartest man in the world” vaporizes their arguments that socialism works, if done right. The smartest man in the world made a hash of it. So, then, was he not the smartest man in the world as the progs so shrilly claimed for 3 or 4 years, or is the ideology fatally flawed?

If Obama is now, by the judgement of the progs, not the smartest man in the world, then how can they reconcile their smug and superior attitudes with the fact that they were so badly fooled?

On the other hand, if he is still the smartest man in the world (a kind of god) in their judgement, then they are face to face with the reality that their Utopian dreams of lollipops and unicorns are unrealistic childish fantasies, and they are thus revealed as feckless dupes who pathetically don the mask of intellectual superiority to hide what they know is their shallow and meager understanding of human nature and the way the world works.

Either way, when their hero is convincingly booted out of the White House on Tuesday, as the tone of their current wave of bleating seems to confirm they fully expect to be the case, their recriminations and acrimony will even more profoundly reveal how thin is their veneer of intellectual rigor and honesty.

I hope those of you with TVs will, on Tuesday night, keep those of us without apprised of the histrionics of the MSNBC hacks as Gov. Romney wins Oiho, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida and Minnesota on his way to a resounding thumping of the smartest buffoon in the world.

I will be so relieved when this election is over. I am exhausted from 4 years of waiting to un-elect this fool President Obama. But I know the fight isn’t over, either. We have to keep electing people with values and common sense so they can work on fixing what’s broken. No to do-overs!

BettyRuth on November 4, 2012 at 12:17 PM

I don’t think they said who requested it… just that it was requested due to extremely long wait time yesterday. Said people were waiting up to six hours at some locations and then didn’t get to vote.

jffree1 on November 4, 2012 at 12:26 PM

I think BHO had a brief uptick in the immediate aftermath of the storm. I also think that is gone now that the public has had a chance to see the botched relief efforts and all the public complaints.
What I am really interested to see is Gallups numbers which will recap Thursday thru today and should come out tomorrow. They were consistently showing Romney ahead by 4-6 points before they stopped polling due to the storm. Let’s see what happens tomorrow.

It is unfathomable to me that it is as close as it is and I despair for the country when half of us (more if you account for non-voters) can want more of what we’ve had for the last 4 years. Our only hope is Romney/Ryan.

camaraderie on November 4, 2012 at 12:28 PM

A couple of points that I haven’t seen anyone make. First, if Obama had Bush’s press, his hurricane response would have been looked at a lot differently. Let’s face it, he showed up, did a photo-op and then went to Vegas again. (What is it with him short-changing a crisis and going to Vegas). If this were Bush, there would be story after story about the President believing campaigning was more important than dealing with a crisis. Secondly, the worst affected states were Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York. Romney wasn’t going to win one of those states, no matter what happened, and if there’s going to be an affect on the President it will be in those states.

The only polling that shows Obama leading are polls based on his 2008 ability to get votes. He no longer has that ability, he’s completely alienated a great deal of the voting bloc that elected him and only has his core group. There is no legitimate poll showing Obama over 50% that doesn’t have a skewed D+9 sample. There’s something happening when the President has trouble getting 2000 people and Romney is turning people away because there’s no room at the rally.

Finally, Fox News, they’re a news organization and not supposed to cheerlead, that’s why they lead the cable outfits and some of the networks in their coverage of the debates. I like the idea they’re not playing up how well Romney is doing, keep Republicans on edge and make sure they show up at the polls, that’s what I want.

Now, Go out and Vote on Tuesday. This really is the most important election many of us have ever seen and many of us are likely to see for a long time.
