Quotes of the day

posted at 9:01 pm on November 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

Four years ago, the Daily News endorsed Obama, seeing a historic figure whose intelligence, political skills and empathy with common folk positioned him to build on the small practical experience he would bring to the world’s toughest job. We valued Obama’s pledge to govern with bold pragmatism and bipartisanship.

The hopes of those days went unfulfilled…

The presidential imperative of the times is to energize the economy and get deficits under control to empower the working and middle classes to again enjoy the fruits of an ascendant America.

So The News is compelled to stand with Romney.

***

Obama is the president. The buck stops with him. This is now Obama’s economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games.

It was Obama and his fellow Democrats who went it alone on health care, making subsequent deals even harder to find. It was Obama who too often let Congress steer the ship in circles. It still is Obama who hasn’t laid out a clear vision for the next four years.

We endorsed Obama for change last time around. Now we’re endorsing change again: Mitt Romney.

***

Last week, I noticed this blog comment: “Romney was not my first, second, or third choice, but I will crawl over ground glass to vote for him.”

A lot of Republicans — and, judging from polls, a lot of independents — feel this way. If there are enough of them, Romney will win, and win big.

Are there? Well, there are some signs. I’ve written here before that politics is all about showing up. And in recent months, people on the Right have been doing a lot of showing up. They’ve showed up at Romney-Ryan events in unprecedented numbers. They made Dinesh D’Souza’s “2016: Obama’s America” a huge hit despite a virtual blackout from traditional media. They stood in line for hours at Chick-fil-A restaurants to buy chicken sandwiches in response to politicians’ bullying. They packed houses at the “Hating Breitbart” premiere.

Will they now pack the voting booths and vote for Romney, and against Obama, in similarly unprecedented numbers? If they do, Romney will win in a landslide.

***

The 76-year-old retiree was a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2008, but volunteered for Barack Obama when he became the nominee. He’s been doing the same for the Democratic president’s campaign since March, door-knocking and phone-banking throughout Ohio, repeating shifts from the late morning until the evening, when it’s too dark to see outside.

Can the Democrat put his finger on the difference in energy in 2012?

“It’s hard to quantify, but there is significantly less enthusiasm,” said Roan. “I think there’s sort of grim determination on the part of some people, more than enthusiasm. … And it shows up in our volunteers. … We don’t have the number of young people volunteering like we did last time.”

***

Already our government redistributes too much from the young to the old, from working families to retirees, from productive entrepreneurs to protected clients. To accede to this government’s permanent expansion is to walk, with eyes wide open, into the kind of economic and demographic trap that has ensnared the weaker economies of Europe today.

President Obama did not single-handedly put us on this path. But he has kept us on it, accelerated our progress down it, and campaigned for re-election as though taking this course had no downsides whatsoever. He’s the candidate of the Medicare status quo in a country facing an entitlement crunch, of government bailouts in an economy with a crony capitalism problem, and of contraceptive mandates in a society with a birth dearth.

For an incumbent president facing a mistrusted opposition party, this may prove a formula for a narrow electoral victory. But for the country that might vote to re-elect him, it risks four more years of drift, stagnation and decline.

***

I don’t know whether Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan can fix things, but I do know that Barack Obama and Joe Biden won’t even try — and that therefore a vote for Obama is a vote for the certainty of national collapse. Look at Lower Manhattan in the dark, and try to imagine what America might look like after the rest of the planet decides it no longer needs the dollar as global reserve currency. For four years, we have had a president who can spend everything but build nothing. Nothing but debt, dependency, and decay. As I said at the beginning, in different ways the response to Hurricane Sandy and Benghazi exemplify the fundamental unseriousness of the superpower at twilight. Whether or not to get serious is the choice facing the electorate on Tuesday.

Re-posted from Gillespie thread:

Latest poll from CNN.

It has Obama and Romney tied at 49%. Noe for the insanely stupid from this poll.

“Among those likely voters, 41% described themselves as Democrats, 29% described themselves as Independents, and 30% described themselves as Republicans.”

D+11!!!!!!!

=============Total=Dem.==Ind.==Rep.
=============—–=—–=—–=—–
Obama,Biden==49%===93%===37%===1%
Romney,Ryan==49%===5%====59%===99%

There is no doubt in my mind they cooked the books on this poll after seeing Romney up by 22 points among independents. D+11? Really??

Readjusting for an R+2.8 turnout (my current model adjustment until Rasmussen updates its party identification page) it becomes 55.5 to 42.6, Romney. I think that is too optimistic. I think this CNN poll is just plain garbage from top to bottom.

Also, GOP has never lost a Presidential election when election day fell on Nov. 6th (has happened 6 times in the past).

Markos Moulitas is extremely confident:

Now, all those Republicans who so certainly proclaimed a looming Romney landslide need to preserve some modicum of credibility. Maybe they’ll keep spinning nonsense about Sandy turning the tide, or maybe they’ll cut that out and zero in on Mitt Romney’s inadequacies as a candidate. They were legion, after all.

What’s delicious is that this loser talk is happening days before the election. They’re beat, they know it, and after weeks of pretending otherwise, they’re too exhausted to keep up the pretenses.

Just want to thank alot of the posters here for giving me hope that we can, and will win this thing, and there are people who share similar viewpoints to you. This website and a few others really have kept me sane during the dark days of 2009-11 and I think they’re finally about to be over.

Anyway..

http://www.amazon.com/The-Real-Jimmy-Carter-Ex-President/dp/0895260905

There’s an interesting part about the 1980 election. Up until about 2 days before the vote, everyone saw the race as too close to call. Pat Caddell then supposedly saw a complete collapse of Carters internal numbers just a day before the election and he called Carter and told him it was over. He describes it as something like “the bottom falling out from under his support”. supposedly Jimmah started crying on the plane when he heard the news…haha

I also never realized what a douchebag Carter was after Reagan took officer and he always tried to undermine him, and was extremely bitter about losing.

After watching Fluffer, and Axlegreaseball today I am very, very convinced history is repeating itself. I hope Romney can be my generation’s Reagan, we need one.

We are encouraging a “no engagement” policy on trolls.

Got to have that and AdBlock Plus to kill autoplay, the latter allowing you to kill any specific video you don’t want to open.

We are ignoring the trolls since our host’s refuse to show them to the door.

TrollCott.

We made big signs with “smiley” faces and had planned to put them in yard on Tuesday — but may do it tomorrow just to make all our neighbors with their obama signs go crazy. Am so excited about voting. Did not want Romney during the primaries, but have become a ground glass voter. Obama is history.
