Quotes of the day

posted at 10:41 pm on April 30, 2013 by Allahpundit

After the first 100 days of his second term, President Obama just can’t stop talking about the limits of his own power.

At a press conference Tuesday morning, he said he wanted a smooth roll out for ObamaCare, but then added, “even if we do everything perfectly, there’ll still be, you know, glitches and bumps.” He reaffirmed his desire to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, but said “Congress determined that they would not let us close it.” He argued for an end to the sequester, only to add that he doesn’t have enough sway with Congress to make it happen. “You seem to suggest that somehow these folks over there have no responsibilities, and that my job is to somehow get them to behave,” he said to one reporter. “That’s their job!”…

The first 100 days have not exactly gone according to plan: Gun control measures in which he invested his political capital died weeks ago, immigration reform faces a perilous path in the House of Representatives, budget and deficit reduction talks are mired in slow moving back room negotiations, and the sequester remains in place with a few targeted exceptions. As nearly every legislative priority has stalled, his approval rating has fallen below 50 percent.

***

A revealing new book from one of media’s longest-serving White House correspondents reports that President Obama surrounds himself only with “idolizers,” and top aides make sure that those whose views might “shake him up too much” are shoved aside…

[Walsh] called top Chicago aide Valerie Jarrett “one of the leading idolizers” who blocks the access of critics to her boss. “Jarrett has gone too far in limiting others’ access to the president, according to a number of White House and congressional sources,” writes Walsh in the book, due out June 1. “Her goal is to keep Obama in a cocoon of admirers who won’t, in her mind, shake him up too much or present views that might be contrary to her understanding of Obama’s positions.”

Democratic pollster Peter Hart told Walsh that Obama is more a performer than seasoned politician. “He likes performing. He likes crowds,” said the pollster. But Hart added that Obama’s White House is too distant from those in Congress who can help him. “It’s closed. It’s insular. It’s shut out.”

***

One hundred days into his second term, Obama has already lost control of the agenda, if he ever had control in the first place. He ricocheted through his news conference, as he has through his presidency recently, between issues and crises not of his choice…

Obama is correct about the dysfunction, and the difficulty of passing even uncontroversial bills. But his stance was frustratingly passive, as if what happens in Congress is out of his hands. It’s the president’s job to lead, and to bang heads if necessary, regardless of any “permission structure.” Obama seemed oddly like a spectator, as if he had resigned himself to a reactive presidency…

Open-mindedness is nice. But lively leadership is the way to resuscitate a moribund presidency.

***

Here is the problem: Even if you concede to Obama every point of his Tuesday news conference, a president looks weak and defeated when he shifts accountability to forces out of his control.

Clinton had a different problem 18 years ago, when a reporter asked whether he worried about “making sure your voice will be heard” over the obsessive media coverage suddenly given to Gingrich. “The Constitution gives me relevance,” Clinton replied. “The power of our ideas gives me relevance. The record we have built up over the last two years and the things we’re trying to do to implement it give it relevance.” It was, by most accounts, the lowest point of the Clinton presidency. The next day, domestic terrorists bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, and Clinton’s strong response put him back on track for reelection in 1996.

This is where perceptions of Obama and Clinton differ. After the Boston bombings and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings (not to mention the assassination of Osama bin Laden), few voters would doubt Obama’s ability to respond to crises. But with so much of his agenda stalled 100 days into his second term, Americans might wonder about his ability to simply govern. Judging from Tuesday’s news conference, Obama has his doubts, too.

***

JON KARL: Mr. President, you are one hundred days into your second term. On the gun bill, you did everything you could to get it passed, obviously it didn’t. Congress is ignoring your efforts to try to get an undo of the Sequester. There’s even a bill that you threatened to veto that had 92 democrats in the House voting yes. My question to you is: Do you still have the juice to get the rest of your agenda through this Congress?

OBAMA: Well if you put it that way, Jon… Maybe I should just pack up and go home… Golly. As Mark Twain said, the rumors of my demise may be a little exaggerated at this point. We understand we’re in a divided government right now. Republicans controlled the House of Representatives. In the Senate, this habit of requiring 60 votes for even the most modest piece of legislation has gummed up the works there. It comes to no surprise to the American people and members of congress themselves that, right now, things are a bit dysfunctional up on Capitol Hill.

Axe,

The reaction from Her upon reading your ballad;

“Um hell yes? It’s clearly about how woman owns mans soul yet is ultimately unattainable, she’s an ever changing apparition never to be fully understood yet necessary to sustain life”

I had asked her to read it and if she would like it as a women and was it romantic enough to touch her heart, now you know.

MarshFox on April 30, 2013 at 10:45 PM

Jackie linked to the Milbank piece on the Obamacare thread. This is what I picked out. He didn’t want to be there. He was acting as if someone pushed him out and told him that he had to do it.

The president was out of sorts from the start of the news conference, scheduled for 10:15 a.m. and postponed to 10:30. Obama finally came out at 10:46. “Good afternoon,” he said. “Or good morning.”

He didn’t attempt to set the tone for the event, skipping an opening statement. And he often found himself remarking on the difficulty of his job: intelligence sharing (“this is hard stuff”), closing Gitmo (“it’s a hard case to make”), Republican governors blocking his health-care law’s implementation (“that makes it harder”) and responding in Syria (“it is a difficult problem”).

This is pathetic.

He only wants the power and perks—no responsibility.

Yep, Valerie is the man…Dear Leader is merely her performer. Good times..! #Benghazi

Anyone with an IQ over 90 shakes the Indonesian Dog-Eating Imbecile up. Barky is one mind-numbingly stupid person. He really couldn’t even pass a normal 9th grade equivalency test. He’s just lucky that affirmative action let’s an idiot like him glide through when in a normal society he’d still be stuck trying to finish junior high school.

And, yet, as stupid as he is, Barky acts as arrogant as all get-out. It’s amazing, really. He knows what an idiot he is. He saw his SAT scores (though no one else was allowed to peek and have a laugh). Unfortunately, we did get to see a few of his near illiterate scribblings and we’ve been subjected to his attempts to appear smart by saying things that no 8th grader would even say – “profit AND earnings ratios!” … “reduce premiums by 3000%!!” … “I don’t know if you have this phrase in Austrian” …

I would love to have some reporter just ask this sub-moronic twit, “What is 3/8 – 5/12?”

I’d rather have Incitatus in the White House. At least the horse has some skills. Barky has none. Not a one.

bazil9 on April 30, 2013 at 10:57 PM

Milbank and others on the LEFT are puzzled and disappointed over Obama’s obvious detachment.

Not so long ago these were the SAME PEOPLE who marveled at his ‘aloof coolness’, and said he was ‘above the fray’ and ‘the adult in the room’ and called him “The One” and marveled at his ‘elegance’.

David Brooks nearly swooned over the crease in his trousers and thought to himself ‘This man could be president’.

The reason Obama is ‘detached’ is simple. He’s suddenly found that he’s the member of a far more exclusive club that the one to which his admirers belong.

He’s one of “The Five Living Presidents”. He knows that being the “First Black President” will secure his place in the history books. He’s even got “The Nobel Peace Prize” to hang on his wall. He’ll have a very expensive library named after him containing all of the material thought fit to be relevant to him and his reign… er… his presidency. He’ll be paid BIG MONEY for the rest of his life just to TALK about being “The First Black President”.

Frankly, he doesn’t need any of his erstwhile supporters or admirer’s anymore. And he knows it.

INC on April 30, 2013 at 10:55 PM

But I wouldn’t call that leadership. My definition might be technically off the mark . . . will examine. :) But leadership is fundamentally constructive. Even a warlord could keep his people arrayed and lead them somewhere.

I’ll try it another way: It looks like Obama is waiting for someone’s lead to follow. (Which would say everything, if it were true.)

I agree that leadership is fundamentally constructive—that’s why I’ve always thought of it as a good thing.

Bad leaders are autocrats, authoritarians, dictators, tyrants, etc.

In fact, I’ve wonder why we have numerous words for bad leaders, but it’s hard to think of a word for a good leader.

Frankly, he doesn’t need any of his erstwhile supporters or admirers anymore. And he knows it.

Yep. You hit the nail square on the head with this one. Good analysis.

I’m so glad for you Scrumpy, and relieved to hear it. :)

thatsafactjack on April 30, 2013 at 11:13 PM

It must be racist to not give black Obama as much power as white Stalin and Hitler had.

VorDaj on April 30, 2013 at 11:13 PM

I went back and looked. Where did I mix them up?

Resist We Much on April 30, 2013 at 11:06 PM

Um . . . counting from the bottom with you as #1, then #2, #3, #4 are inverted. The first part, not the underneath attribution. :) The underneath doesn’t match the left-most.

Hi Ken, I am smiling too!! SEE :-D

Getting short indeed, she was like, it is almost surreal, and I had to agree, after two years of being continuously apart, I can’t even begin to describe it. Kadena will be the last thing I see:)

Now that the wordsmith are all here, I have a question. Is there one English word that means a good leader? Are there a lot of them?

I mean a word that would be a counterpart to autocrat, tyrant, dictator, etc.

Glad you’re back as well and glad to hear you are feeling better!

PatriotGal2257 on April 30, 2013 at 11:14 PM

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen!!

How’s ya’all doing? :-)

Scrumpy on April 30, 2013 at 11:06 PM

Hi Scrump! :)

Well #4 is a given.

Here’s hoping #3 comes to pass.

gophergirl on April 30, 2013 at 10:59 PM

Hi, Gopher! (WYAN). I didn’t see you come in. Which is weird, considering the giant mascot costume.

Axe on April 30, 2013 at 11:15 PM

I thought you said you couldn’t bra carry? So how do you look down your shirt and tell? Hmmm?

Priceless.

After the first 100 days of his second term, President Obama just can’t stop talking about the limits of his own power.

‘God’ fell to earth…but don’t be fooled.

Amnesty will destroy the land. With Obama’care’ his job will be done, in great part. This leech will have sucked the might and life out of the land, for good.

Go to Hades all of you who brung/kept him. May you and yours suffer incredible woes. This includes all who stayed home, who voted for RP and assorted scumbags and scumhags.

Since I have given up watching news, I just come here to read a headline and if it isn’t interesting to me, I don’t go to it…

Nothing has changed, 0 is still the same nasty piece of work he ever was… Everyone else is still lying their asses off…

Is EG still here? Seems he was having an issue/censor thingy…

Scrumpy on April 30, 2013 at 11:16 PM

HiYA scrumps-hope last treatment was a success!

bazil9 on April 30, 2013 at 11:17 PM

Good to see you, Scrumpy!

williamg on April 30, 2013 at 11:17 PM

Scrumpy on April 30, 2013 at 11:09 PM

Thanks Scrumpy, she was just mentioning you, she has some deadlines she’s been working on, her newest stuff due to come out this month, she wants the deck cleared for when I get home, but she should answer you back tomorrow:)

MarshFox on April 30, 2013 at 11:17 PM

She wears a pirate patch too.

bazil9 on April 30, 2013 at 10:57 PM

SPARKY!!!!

Resist We Much on April 30, 2013 at 11:00 PM

She (RWM) wears a tanga to cover her other patch. Axe is getting hot flashes. (:

SparkPlug on April 30, 2013 at 11:17 PM

Axe, which one is wrong:

@HotLips ‘I’m a reformadox Jewish woman born and raised conservative, living in TX, in a city that has at least 2 mosques…and about 5 other Jews. I AM a ‘minority’.

- annoyinglittletwerp on April 29, 2013 at 10:47 PM

@annoyinglittletwerp ‘Interesting. You think you are a minority simply because you are Jewish? How about the Italians and Irishmen? Are they minorities too?’

- HotAirLib on April 29, 2013 at 10:57 PM

@annoyinglittletwerp ‘Come back and claim minority status when folks discriminate against you simply by the color of your skin. Until then, I strongly doubt you are a minority.’

- HotAirLib on April 29, 2013 at 11:16 PM

6 million Jews are unavailable for comment.

@Resist We Much ‘Interesting. So because a monster killed 6 million Jews, their offsprings are now minorities? This is like saying African Americans are minorities simply because their ancestors were brought here as slaves.’

- HotAirLib on April 29, 2013 at 11:29 PM

Resist We Much on April 30, 2013 at 11:18 PM

He quotes Mark Twain…then he can’t finish a sentence, the fool.

The autostart of the videos at HA sucks, sucks, sucks.
