Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on March 10, 2013 by Allahpundit

President Barack Obama hopes to spark a pitchfork revolt against Republicans over sequester-induced budget cuts — but many Democrats fret that he’s undermined that effort with an early strategy marred by hype, poor planning and muddled messaging…

“I think they probably went over the top in terms of saying that the consequences were going to be horrible, especially because it’s happened and the lines in the airports aren’t long, the world hasn’t changed overnight,” says former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, an on-again, off-again Obama critic who supports the broad outlines of Obama’s $4 trillion “grand bargain” proposal…

One top Democratic Congressional aide offered this bit of advice to Obama: “Don’t accentuate a fight you don’t intend to wage [and] can’t win. … They spent two weeks building up sequester as a horror show and then got fact-checked a dozen times and were forced to back off their own claims of it being a disaster once they were forced to acquiesce to the cuts happening.”

***

For Republicans, the clearest indication that they had won this latest round in the ongoing budget fight was Obama’s acknowledgment that he would sign a continuing resolution to fund the government (the current one expires at the end of March) that included the lower spending levels under sequestration, in addition to the spending caps already in place under the Budget Control Act of 2011. In other words, that he would not risk a government shutdown in an effort to undo the automatic cuts…

“The problem was, on day one when Obama started talking about how bad the sequester was, nobody was disagreeing with him,” a senior House Republican aide says. “We always agreed that there would be programs that were unnecessarily going to be impacted by this. The only way for them to gain ground was to go over the top, and they just boxed themselves into a corner of hysterics, claiming the world was going to end, and then it didn’t.”…

“The White House has been badly served throughout the Obama administration by making assumptions about what Republicans want, rather than actually talking to Republicans and conservatives, and finding out what moves them,” the House leadership aide says. “I don’t know if it’s because they watch too much MSNBC, or what, but they have a habit of telling us what they think we want, and have made some bad assumptions about the principles of conservatism.”

***

“If we’re going to solve these problems, it’s going to have to be done on a bipartisan basis,” said [Sen. Ron] Johnson on ABC’s “This Week.” “I think most Republicans are more than willing to work with this president.”…

“I got a call from his chief of staff over the weekend to talk about, you know what we need to do in terms of developing the process,” said Johnson. “So, you know we’ll — I’ll certainly give the president the benefit of the doubt.”…

“If you’re taking a look at, in an entitlement reform package… you know actually bringing in revenue for those entitlement reforms, I might look at that,” he said. But Johnson cautioned that the high taxes were already battering the economy.

***

“This is the first time I’ve ever had a conversation with the president lasting more than, say, two minutes or televised exchanges,” Mr. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican and chairman of the House Budget Committee, said on “Fox News Sunday.” “So I’ve never really had a conversation with him on these issues before. I’m excited that we had this conversation — we had a very frank exchange. We come from different perspectives; I ran against him in the last election. So we exchanged very different frank, candid views with one another that were very different. But at least we had this conversation.”…

“Will he resume the campaign mode, will he resume attacking Republicans and impugning our motives, will he resume what is long believed to be a plan to win the 2014 elections, or will he sincerely change and try and find common ground, try and work with Republicans to get something done?” Mr. Ryan said. “That’s what we hope happens.”

***

Senator No. 2: “At the end [of Obama's dinner with Republicans] I mentioned, ‘Share [with us] how you see this going forward.’ ” Here the president “got hazy. . . . I told him this will never work without adult supervision from the White House. I don’t think he comprehends that this is part of getting something done.”…

When the senator had met with the president in the past, during debt talks, “it was a lecture, it was preachy.” But at the dinner the president showed “reach out.

“There was nothing like it. There were at least three senators there who I could tell got a little emotional—there was something about the meeting where it was with such sincerity. Nobody held back.”

***

Here’s another possibility: The White House screwed up the sequester fight, the president’s approval ratings are dropping, heretofore-friendly reporters are criticizing his failure to lead, and, while Obama remains relatively unconcerned about debt and deficits, he recognizes the political utility of reaching out to Republicans now in order to demonize them once again in the months leading up to the 2014 midterm elections. In short, it’s a setup

The White House recognizes that the fight over the sequester is about much more than the immediate reduction in the growth of federal spending. In some respects, it’s about the central rationale of the Obama presidency—that government is a force for good in the lives of Americans, not just necessary but constructive and even benevolent. Think back to the Obama campaign’s “Julia,” a fictional single woman who was aided by a caring and compassionate government at every stage of her life. The president’s argument over the past two months is that the government is so important it cannot be trimmed even a little. On the contrary, from universal pre-K to more green energy to new medical research, it ought to be doing things tomorrow that it’s not doing today.

So it’s fair to ask: Why should Republicans trust a man whose second Inaugural Address was a clarion call to greater government activism, whose State of the Union the New York Times described as a case for “closing out the politics of austerity,” who has previously demonstrated bad faith by fighting even modest reductions in spending growth, and whose second-term strategy so far has depended on casting Republicans as villains?

***

“I think he gets it,” Coburn said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I think he’s genuinely reaching out.”

“But you’ve got a lot scabs and sores on people that’s going to take a while for that to heal,” Coburn told host David Gregory.

As Democrats and Republicans, we may disagree on the best way to achieve our goals, but I’m confident we can agree on what those goals should be. A strong and vibrant middle class. An economy that allows businesses to grow and thrive. An education system that gives more Americans the skills they need to compete for the jobs of the future. An immigration system that actually works for families and businesses. Stronger communities and safer streets for our children.

Making progress on these issues won’t be easy. In the months ahead, there will be more contentious debate and honest disagreement between principled people who want what’s best for this country. But I still believe that compromise is possible. I still believe we can come together to do big things. And I know there are leaders on the other side who share that belief.

While I agree with you where we are now, I think it was set up that way, I know that seems somewhat wackobirdish, but all my reading tells me they knew, or maybe some did, I think Hamilton knew for sure, but I think Madison realized a bit too late and tried to reign it back in. Jackson too later on, its all about money and power, and on that Lord Acton was dead on!

MarshFox on March 10, 2013 at 11:11 PM

I agree with you, in general. It wasn’t set up this way but the Founders certainly understood that the natural inclination was to pull limited systems like our governmental architecture apart.

A limited government is an especially difficult sort to keep intact. Since it’s limited, it doesn’t attract very good people. Who wants to take a job that is constrained, directly? Such sorts of limited positions and systems mostly attract the mediocre, the stupid, and the criminal (who are looking to abuse the system and break it). This is natural. If our government worked according to the Constitution, as it should, then you and I wouldn’t have to be so involved in politics, since there would only be so much damage that a politician could do (given his limited power). This leads to a sort of complacency (the luxury of having a system that you don’t have to be on top of every single second and can spend your time in constructive pursuits elsewhere, as you truly desire) that begins the end of such structures. Add to that the vast wealth of America and the huge amount of money that goes through this government and you get the worst sort of people populating it. Eventually, they will kill it as they feed off of it and abuse it and we will have to start anew. It’s amazing that our sort of structure lasted over 200 years, to be honest.

But we have definitely hit the end of the line with this particular implementation and need to move on and re-establish the model all over again. Once that is done, there is a tacit understanding among all of what the law actually means, before the lawyers start removing all meaning from the language and reducing the law to nothing more than meaningless glyphs, representing nothing.

You might be referring to the right “meeting”. It was when the Indonesian called in a bunch of bank execs to ream them about their bonuses (after the bailouts) when it was revealed right after that some sneaky sumbi*ch had put some of the bonuses into the porkulus, itself. Then Barky sent a bunch of union goons out to harass some no-name banking mid-manager … Meanwhile, people had been talking about pitchforks, but for Barky and the rest of the treasonous, lunatic junta.

The idiot should have been impeached right then and there (along with tens of other times both before and after) but he wasn’t … so he got to extort $20 billion out of BP right from the Oval Office. That was a real sort of Sukarno action. Welcome to Jakarta.

I will buy that, you and I are on the same page, I just think that the Anti-Federalist were more right then the Federalist. Honestly, for one of my college papers, I was doing research and it is amazing how easily they threw away the Articles in favor of the new Constitution. I think with amending the Articles would have worked. I will say this though, if the red state governors would just band together, they could make the Federal government irrelevant and bring it to its knees, it would only take one to start it.

Dutchtown (where I was) isn’t too far south of Soulard. Soulard Market is hanging in there. It certainly isn’t like the heydays of at least the ’80′s, but that area is having its own renaissance.

Former McCain Campaign Manager Steve Schmidt on Meet the Press:

Republican Strategist Steve Schmidt had some harsh words for his own party on Sunday, criticizing the GOP’s standing on equal opportunity for women.

As part of an NBC “Meet The Press” roundtable discussing gender roles in the workplace, Schmidt vowed that any organization where women are “not at the table” is “going to have problems.”

It’s one of the problems we have structurally in the Republican Party … Any company, any organization in today’s day and age that doesn’t give equal opportunity to women, that doesn’t advance women to the table, is going to be an organization that has difficulty competing,” Schmidt said.

Just needs a whiny “Serious you guys” to complete the effect.

Actually – growing up in South St. Louis and playing music and other things in East St. Louis, already saw some of that.

I’ll just say this: It’s amazing how incredibly clear your thinking can be when you are looking into the barrel of a loaded weapon……….Not Recommended, by the way……

I only went to East St. Louis a couple of times when I lived up in Brentwood – and decided I didn’t need a drink that bad. ESL is a weird place.It’s been a lot of years since I’ve been over there.

Azzhole, Ayotte was at Obama’s table during Rand Paul’s filibuster, where she would have shown that women are beyond dummy table-props.

Obama’s sincere outreach to the GOP is about as authentic as the plaster cast that Ted Bundy used to wear on his arm before he grabbed young women and pulled them into his car.

America has been poisoned by politically correct speech, and politically correct behavior. Not only are Steve Schmidt and his ilk the turds floating in the punchbowl, we are no longer allowed to call them that, or toss out the punchbowl without offending them.

To say that we have lost our way is an understatement. Once upon a time, if one supported abortion or homosexuality and claimed to be a Catholic, they would be excommunicated. Now, their are Catholics who not only support, but practice both of those abominations, and honestly believe that if you do not support them, that you should be excommunicated.

Indeed night has become day, up has become down and good has become evil. We cannot tell, let alone throw people like Steve Schmidt from the Republican Party, even though he intentional worked to cause McVain’s defeat to Obama in order to prevent Sarah Palin fro becoming Vice President.

Schmidt should be taken out and shot instead of being invited to speak on Meet the Fifth Column Treasonous Media.
