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.

I started riding in the junior rodeo as soon as I turned seven. As I got older, I showed horses, confirmation, English equitation, hunt and jump, etc. particularly some of my Dad’s prize stock, and I also road speed events and western equitation events.

I don’t know nearly as much now. For every new fact I learn, I realize there are ten other related facts I haven’t learned.

Now it seems the more I learn the less I know.

Ok, let’s play “name that election.” I’ll supply the quote, you tell me which election it refers to:

“Obviously this is a close race, and we always expected it to be,” said —–, a spokeswoman for —–. “We feel very confident about our position.”

A majority of voters, 52 percent, disapprove of (the incumbent’s) job performance, the survey found.

More than half, 55 percent, said they believe (the incumbent) will win the election.

Voter Discontent

“While voters are dissatisfied with XXXXX, they’re not convinced that the challenger could do better,” Woolley said.

Doesn’t that sound like the Obama campaign spin? It was actually the Corzine campaign spin in the final weekend before he was ousted as governor of N.J.

See how losers sound when they see the writing on the wall?

The race between Christie and Corzine was TIED in the final weekend.

I had a heated argument over business in an area where the two clowns it got into it with were in over their heads.

It would be equivalent to having someone invest in your race horse and they demand something in return to secure the integrity of their investment and will accept nothing short of some horse poop so they can sleep at night.

And you explain that horse poop won’t help them with that but they don’t believe you.

So you give them the horse poop and they are happy their demands have been met.

This last sentence is true wisdom. When you hear people talking about how smart they are, the truth is, they aren’t. When you hear Obama talk about how honest and transparent he is, he isn’t.

So, about that crowd…

I noticed that 0 was rallying the Dems at Fifth Third Arena, on the campus of Univ of Cincy tonight. And I checked the place out. Capacity of the joint is 13,176.

And I said to myself: Self, why would the Lightworker be playing so small a room? Perhaps he just wants his supporters to avoid the chill outside, and play an indoor room. And surely, Fifth Third is the biggest room in Cincy.

But self was wrong again. Turns out the Old Riverfront Coliseum, now under the name of US Bank Arena, right across town, holds 17,556.

Either someone really likes turning supporters away, or he was afraid of a half-full room…

I’m going straight Republican, starting with Romney/Ryan

It’s a form of bigotry to believe someone else’s religious beliefs are false? Isn’t that the very kind of thing people like 0dumba and Hillary Clinton manipulatively say about those who reject the validity of Islam?

Seriously, I thought we were supposed to have moved beyond this kind of garbage after the election of JFK, the first Catholic president.

I am sorry that you don’t seem to understand the distinction between not agreeing with someone’s religious beliefs and declaring that someone’s religious beliefs disqualify them from holding office. So, are Catholics also not fit to hold office? Wouldn’t this guy also consider Catholicism a cult? What about Jews? Or atheists?

This guy Bill Keller bigot declared that a vote for Romney is a vote for Satan. Who on earth would take this kind of crackerjack buffoon seriously, except for Steveangell, that is.

This is basically like saying to millions of Mormon children, who were raised in the faith, that they have no business thinking about ever being president. I’m sorry, but this is just bigotry straight up, and it should be called out as such.

As for your other reference to Islam, if you cannot tell the difference between anti-freedom, bloodthirsty jihadists and Mormons (or anyone else who actually believes in the Golden Rule) then you really are beyond help.

politico guy talking about what each side may say if they should lose….

He has approved of attacks on his rival, but the strategy has never quite suited him.

mitt, he wasn’t the right guy for the job

Yes, my brother. Prayers ascending. Remember: Trollcot is still in effect.

Let’s keep our eyes on the prize.

Yes, ma’am. But, just like Trollcot is working, tomorrow promises to be a Chick-Fil-A kind of day…a million times over!

kingsjester on November 5, 2012 at 6:43 AM

I can’t wait to cast my ballot against Obama, the Democrats, and all of liberalism.

I want my vote to be a slap across the faces of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, too.

And, win or lose, I smack in the kisser of that hounding nagging troll gumby.

Liam on November 5, 2012 at 6:43 AM

kingsjester on November 5, 2012 at 6:41 AM

Yup, my brother.

BTW, TROLLCOTT has been very effective…
Pray for Deb Fisher here in NE…

BAD NEWS for Obama … Politico is now calling him an “unhappy warrior.” LOL

This epitomizes why I think he will lose …
