Skip to comments.Once More, With Meaning (Obama Has No Case for Re-Election)
Posted on 06/22/2012 5:52:30 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
The Romney strategy the past eight weeks has been, in a small way, shrewd: have the candidate out there talking in a candidate-like manner, but don't let him say anything so interesting that it will take the cameras off Mr. Obama. The president is lurching from gaffe to mess, from bad news to worse. Don't get in his way as he harms himself.
As for the president, his big campaign speech last week in Cleveland not only was roundly panned but was deeply revealing. In itall 54 minutes of ithe attempted to make the case for his economic stewardship and his re-election.
What he revealed is that he doesn't know the case for his own re-election.
Politicians give 54-minute speeches when they don't know what they're trying to say but are sure the next sentence will tell them. So they keep talking. They keep saying sentences in the hope that meaning will finally emerge from one of them.
A 54-minute speech is not a sign of Fidel-like confidence, or a love for speaking. A 54-minute speech is a sign of desperation.

Hey! Peggy! We had a substantial candidate. You and your Liberal friends in the media told her to go back to Alaska.
I don't know about that. I just got a notice from the dems that sounds pretty enticing, and may lure me to the other side. I'm sure I won't be alone, as hundreds of thousands of other conservatives take this bait. Romeny is now toast. Here is their incredible offer:
"Having you join our 2012 effort is important to us. So we want to sweeten the deal.
By donating today, not only will you become a contributing member this year, but you'll also be automatically entered to be one of four Democrats we'll fly to Washington D.C. to meet our Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for lunch -- airfare and hotel are on us."
“Having you join our 2012 effort is important to us. So we want to sweeten the deal...”
...are you serious?
A date with Debbie Wasserman Schultz!
That's hard to resist!;-)
Peggy Noonan = Fredo Corleone.
You made your bed, Peggers,etc...
Second prize is lunch and dinner with Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Having you join our 2012 effort is important to us. So we want to sweeten the deal...
...are you serious?
I think I probably have puked.
Second prize is having TWO lunches with Debbie..ugghhhh...
Been true for a while, the more Obama speaks the worse he does.
Imho, one can review Obama’s speeches and they always have been glaringly radical/ ill informed. But the media and public just accepted that he was giving brilliant speeches.
His great “race” speech contained insane marxist assertions, he accused doctors of routinely performing uneccessary surgery on children, etc.
You do know, don’t you, that opposing 0bama is “racist”.
This is the main theme they’ll run on, behind the scenes.
DWS - “I’ve got my eye on you”.
He has within him the possibility to change the direction and tone of American foreign policy, which need changing; his rise will serve as a practical rebuke to the past five years, which need rebuking; his victory would provide a fresh start in a nation in which a fresh start would come as a national relief. He climbed steep stairs, born off the continent with no father to guide, a dreamy, abandoning mother, mixed race, no connections. He rose with guts and gifts. He is steady, calm, and, in terms of the execution of his political ascent, still the primary and almost only area in which his executive abilities can be discerned, he shows good judgment in terms of whom to hire and consult, what steps to take and moves to make. We witnessed from him this year something unique in American politics: He took down a political machine without raising his voice."
Obama and the Runaway Train, Peggy Noonan, 30OCT08
"I've got my eye on you. And you."
Her and Chelsea could be twins...hmmmmmm
Did you know she has three secret service agents? One for her torso and two for her ass.
Leading the opposition to another candidate or to his bad policies is a good start, but voters want to follow someone who will lead them in a clear direction. Noonan's advice for Romney to hammer one or two vital political goals evokes the smashing success of Reagan's campaigns and presidency. It is the road map to victory in November.
Thanks for posting it. A good reminder of why I never read her any more.
So, hear that Mittbots?
Other people are starting to notice too!
Re Peggy Fredo Corleone Noonan: “I’m smaht. I’m smaht. Not dumb like they say.”
(Done from memory so it’s probably a paraphrase rather than a quote, but quite applicable IMO)
They pay for the airfare and hotel, but you have to supply your own barf bag. Guess the winner could just grab the one off the seat back in front of him on the airplane and bring it along.
Obamacare is the Death Knell for the United States of America.
The USA Federal Government is broke, and is forced to borrow 3 1/2 BILLION dollars from our grandchildren EVERY DAY!
This then is the Federal Grandchildren Tax, or FGT, separate from the FIT or Federal Income Tax that only 51 % of us pay.
2012 is the third year of the American Taxpayer Revolt, in spite of what our sorry politicians and apathetic Liberal Agenda Media try to tell us.
The Silent Majority is silent no more.
If Romney is elected he has promised to keep the best parts of Obamacare and send it back to each of the 50 States, resulting in the Death Knell of each of the 50 States that choose to keep the Obamacare Death Knell.
Right now there is a 50-50 chance that Obama will get re-elected.
No matter that Obama was the worst Federal Financial Steward EVER!
If Obama gets re-elected he will just declare, by Executive Order, that Obamacare is legal, and thus the demise of America will be accomplished during his Reign of Obamanation.
If THE NINE SUPREMES knock down ANY part of Obamacare, then Senate Minority Leader Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell and Esteemed Sobber-of-the-House Boehner will rush to replace the Court-damaged parts of Americas Death Knell.
The only possible positive outcome will be to ABOLISH FOREVER Obamacare.
America cannot afford to continue Federal programs to buy votes with debt that we charge to our Grandchildren.
BTW, it is all very simple as illustrated by the words of Paul Harvey: WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL.
“he shows good judgment in terms of whom to hire and consult”
Surely she must cringe when she reflects back on such statements. That she now expects anyone to EVER take her seriously is a joke!
Peggy messed up big time with her fawning support of obama. As far as I’m concerned (paraphrasing Sarah), her pseudo-conservative goose is cooked.
And to think that this was written months after the Ayers and Wright stuff had been broken.
Amen! Peggy you foolishly bought this usurper’s bunk hook line and sinker and supported him. You bear responsibility for what he has done to the country just as every other fool who voted for him.
Sadly you worked for Reagan and saw the real thing as what a president should and can be and you evidently learned nothing. Just go away Peggy...
Oh, that is awesome! :)
Yes, she knew about all of it .. knew everything - just as we all did - but she didn’t care.
If I’m wrong, please correct me, but I don’t recall her writing a single article of warning as to who obamao really is. And there was so much info available in his own writings, not to mention his associations, that there’s no way she didn’t know.
Yet for her hopes of obtaining a speech writing position in the obamao administration, she literally threw the entire nation under the bus and wrote nothing but the most glowing articles about him.
Somehow, the taxpayers will end up picking up the tab. Libs are great for spending Other Peoples' Money to support their causes.
