Quote of the Day || March 16 2012

by Keith Koffler on March 16, 2012, 12:23 am

“Okay let’s see, economy – bad; gas prices – bad; world situation – bad; health care bill – not popular. It looks like we’re going to have to make the focus on our campaign that dog Romney put on the top of his car.”

- Obama Campaign Manager Jim Messina

Very funny, Keith. And Mr Messina, that is such a great strategy : thin arguments ? raise your voice. I use it daily on my dear husband.
A glorious, bright and sunny spring morning over here, I hope you all will have a great weekend.

I fear Seamus, the infamous, nervous tummied, Irish setter, maybe the least of Myth’s attack material. Wait til Axelrod/Messina/Pelosi et al, go all out. The Romney ancestors in Mexico becomes the bridge to attacking LDS outright. Big donor and self proclaimed “potty mouth” Bill Maher (and the usual suspects of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert) start in “on” peep stones, “sacred garments” and plural marriage. It’s gonna get real ugly…

And yesterday Drudge was hyperventilating that Santorum wants to “vigorously” go after Internet porn (a topic that was brought up by yet another StepOnAllofus type–think the Debate birth control gotcha). Matt Drudge even completed the “meme” with a man on his arms waving to the heavens to drive home the “religious nuts” imagery. I guess the lamestream WH directives want to keep “heat” on him…just in case.

I miss the old Drudge…before he became a Romneyite like Ann Coulter. Still can’t figure it out. Didn’t see either one of them as the establishment type.

Susan, I totally agree with you. Not only Drudge, but American Spectator and also the Daily Caller, I think. Coulter has totally lost it, BTW.

It’s the Al Sharpton strategy. Zero in and make personal Romney’s dog, his hair follicles his money so you dont realize that my name is Al Sharpton and I am a bigot. Hypocrisy, thy name is David Axelrod.

“And the worst problem facing his Highness’ re-election effort is that I have to inform all the ‘voted for change’ lemming that he is not the Lone Ranger…because there ain’t no silver bullets!” Jim Messina

Goof one, Keith! Yesterday, Chrissie Matthews and his crew really went overboard on Seamus, i.e. ‘The press is going to hound him over this one”.

Romney’s response was cringeworthy. Something to the effect that Seamus was in his air-tight crate and, with 5 kids in the car, he was probably much happier being on the roof of the car in his crate.

But here’s the kicker! Romney said Seamus loved the crate – he spent a lot of time in his crate at home!!!

I don’t think I have the intestinal fortitude to suffer through the coming onslaught! The vultures are circling the wagon.

Maybe we can start a counter rumor that the Bo we occasionally see is the 4th one (you know, like the Lassies) and they ate the other ones in a tent on the lawn.

Guess I’m a little slow on the uptake this morning. Don’t see the connection you’re making.

Official photos show Bo, the dog, with different white fur markings.

If Seamus is such a bad story, then maybe the Obamas treat Bo worse…OK, it was not that funny…Altho SrDem’s comment makes it a little teeny funny.

If they’re going to harp on Romney’s dog, let’s start in on Barry and his Rutherford B. Hayes nonsense. Again, imagine if GW had gotten his facts wrong like that…the MSM would have called him stupid and be throwing fits today (“Telephone-gate”). Instead, nothing but crickets.

Funny, I didn’t notice little Bo in the ‘official’ family photo – you know, the one that is now the ‘official’ (illegal) campaign photo. Bo is only trotted out of the dog house when Barbara Walters pays a visit…or when his master shops at PETCO! There are, however, some brand new campaign photos – BO and Bo – together again! It’s a doggone shame!
