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.

That’s true.:)

By the way, I’ve conjured up a beautiful aqua-green salt water pool for our mermaid, Pambi. If you stand at the far end of the pool under the waterfall at the farthest end with your back to the waterfall, and turn left and go through the copse of silver birch trees and down the little path, you’ll find the pool. It has a passage at its bottom that leads to the sea, and so it is always fresh and clean and she’ll never feel trapped. I hope she likes it. :)

Back in the 90s, maybe early 2000s. I can’t remember when they mothballed it after the crash in France. I think it was late 90s-early 00s.

He finds the place derelict (nicely put) for banning SWalker, while disgusting scum like HAL ‘live’ and breathe.

Schadenfreude on May 1, 2013 at 12:33 AM

He shifted. I kind of wanted to announce something a little weird myself tonight, but I didn’t see much point. I’ll go ahead since everyone is here . . .

I’m shifting too.

I’ve taken out trolls. I’ve posted with RWM’s detail. I’ve had the pleasure of typing “dismissed.” I’ve snarked. I’ve worked kind of hard. I’ve been around a bit and worn different hats, and I’ve heard my words (the better ones) come out of some surprising mouths over the years. So, some difference was made, actually. A little. But that’s a lot.

I’m going to move into another area, now. Its been a while coming. Breitbart focused it for me, and events of late have . . . pushed me a bit. I truly believe the battle is upstream. I’m going to create content upstream. BMore’s moved into graphics . . . I’m moving into another area. I think I can be much more effective there now. I’ve changed. I know more, for one thing.

I’ll still comment and everything, but . . . it’ll probably be a little different.

See? Too weird to announce. But anyway, there it is.

Woah. Okay, I remember those days, albeit vaguely. I was in Boston when I went after that jerk all night long, your episode with him must have occurred around the same time. He was coming unglued, and Bmore suggested the only reason he wasn’t banned was because he was related to Ed or Allah.

Actually, when I originally created the Glade and designed the clothing, it was ‘pants’. They had tunics, pants, boots, belts, weapons, etc. I’m not at all sure how it ended up being ‘tights’ and I’m also not sure why Axefellow wants to wear a ‘robe’. He started with a midnight blue tunic interwoven with silver threads so it shimmered in the moonlight. He is a white magic wizard. He also carried The Book, which is bound in white leather and normally resides in the oubliette, and he was reading another book about dark souled Russian men. :)

Softer still like velvet
Your touch electrifies
Bare whispers sigh
Mere thoughts engulf
Your eyes they mystify
Sweet scent of love
Lust stirs the heart
As close we come.

Like chocolate melts
Soft warm and sweet
This kiss is not the kiss
But in the throes
Soul to soul we stir
Desire reaches upward
Passions rise, ignite
As slowly we caress.

Our mouths alive with
Here ohhh There ohhh
Softer still like velvet
We merge, flow, glow
Until time stands still
Seconds become a lifetime
Breath the breathe of me
Need me with your touch.

My senses are like fire
Cleanse my very soul
Bound in truth and love
Release me as I do you
As we soar unbound
Into the depths of lust
Souls free forever
Softer still like velvet.

I could tell you did. The pacing and the imagery are great. :)

The rest of us run around frolicking while your studying. So what’s in that book anyway? Maps? To rum? To treasure?

That’s truer than you know. :) And that’s about to change too.

That was wonderful Scrumpy. That poem will make ken dizzier with love for you. If that’s possible.

While I’m certain that’s true, I didn’t mean to reference your work in my comment to Scrumpy in any way. Sorry if there was some confusion in that regard. :)

I think he knows that . . . he’s just . . . an optimist.

Also insane.

While I adore William, I know this much:

If I am ever in a building with bad acoustics, William, and Barack and Obama drops a book on the floor, I’m hitting the deck because the American Civil War 2.0 will have started.

William has an itchier trigger finger than General James Chesnut, Jr.

I’m a woman. I consider it the ULTIMATE win when they call me a ‘cvnt’ and I want to stick a shiv into, fillet and gut my adversaries. The bloodier, the better.

No, no — getting that distinction in there was purely self-serving. :)
