Iowa vote Monday could be a wake-up call
"Is coming you know we've got a little presidential election going on here Democrats are choosing their candidates David can you believe or not less than a week away from the Iowa caucus no I cannot but sure we do can be used the mind is fully shortly and we'll have a winner well as as many politicians including the former president George Herbert Walker bush said you know momentum is everything big mo we used to call it and if you're looking at the polls right now big mo seems to be with Bernie Sanders in Iowa doesn't yeah well what were you needing a lot of polls he's gaining in polls where he's not leaving and you know he clearly is in a good position special considering that his backers of some of the most enthusiastic factors of all the democratic primary candidates in terms of you know how loyal his supporters are unwilling they are not show up for him so easily he's in a good place if he's speaking speaking at just the right time obviously with a with a clock is you have to be a little cautious because they can be hard to gauge all yeah even four years ago not withstanding that all of the polling that showed trump ahead in the Republican primary was correct told me we can cruise still managed to win Iowa are good for points and that had to do with you know you can get the right kind of not quite showing up is on the final hole right in in so little bit of caution because offices are weird but I think we have seen enough data to know that this is Bernice race to lose as much as it is anybody funny yeah you know you use a phrase that I've been using a lot it it it certainly seems like Bernie's race to lose it and I've always sort of been seen that way David record considering three years ago he's wrong he ran in his primary caucus situation for the Democrats in all fifty states and came a whisker away from beating Hillary Clinton a formidable candidate I mean he's got the experience he's already got the infrastructure and god knows he's got the fund raising power I it's always been Bernie's to lose well what do argument but there's another way you can look at it which is that four years ago if you want to register a vote against Hillary Clinton you only have one choice okay and when you look at how the Republican primary we shaping up especially in as you got in the spring a lot of Democrats could not imagine Donald Trump feeding Hillary Clinton and so there was all sorts of security and all sorts of reasons for voting for Bernie Sanders and primary that may not have had to do with the fact he was Bernie Sanders out here he does well in Iowa and New Hampshire is the polling day suggestion court and we're going to see is the fact of burning a lot of staying power that he was able to achieve success by not simply being the anti Hillary candidate in the exact primary and you know how far finance regularly sentiment Kerry people so that's not nothing yeah it would mean is just a lot more to Bernie and that he was a lot more established on the left even though they had so many of those services I'm hearing some conventional wisdom David Drucker within the Democrat pundits that yeah okay of Bernie when's the caucuses that's that's kind of a thing at we expected to win New Hampshire even if he wins those two it's not really what those two states are reflective of the Democrat electorate and really things matter once you get down to a larger more African American state like South Carolina is there something to that or I mean I I'm sorry if you win Iowa and New Hampshire good lord you've got momentum there at that point well look in the in the modern nominating air all all since Iowa meeting should be seen as saying that any Democrat who has one island of Hampshire has gone on to win the nomination yeah it's a let's not minimize what that kind of momentum guys in terms of how voters in a primary that haven't voted yet look at candidates when you start to win you look like a winner and that often attracts a lot of support when you start to lose you look like a loser and people are just not as enthusiastic about you and they all of a sudden question whatever electability hat having said that there are different electoral compositions and some of the states and it's possible that the race is still unsettled such that somebody else and rise in you know even in twenty twelve I will saying we saw a Republican primary that was unsettled because nobody ever felt that thrilled with the front runner so even after I met Ronnie finish what appeared to be first even a close you know by a William my whiskers Santorum yeah in one New Hampshire the Los out Caroline any loss of pretty gamble it right when voters there said no forget it and then he was able to recover in Florida because of the way the schedule was that year and and news agency mistakes and in the debate so you never know all right so do not which brings us your latest column which I find to be a fascinating angle on this whole thing let let's stipulate for a moment the Bernie Sanders does do as well as it looks like and he actually is lined up to be the nominee for the Democrats this seems to be a bridge too far for never trump Republicans the I find that fascinating everybody have wanted someone like I wanted to see what they had to say about thirty standard you know I think will focus on a lot of the in a quorum call never troubled public invent that some people think about they see on TV they think you know about they think about people that have become meeting in their eyes rather flexible ideological but I talked to a lot of these people that are not on television and a lot of them you know whatever you think about the position on trial yeah consider themselves very philosophically conservative and they have a lot of issues with trump but they're not really interested in replacing in their eyes one problematic radical for another with a whole host of different problems so they don't really want to turn on one set of problems for another and so yeah there are limits to their never trump ism I think the larger issue that I try to get you in the stories well is that if you even for these this month of people that want trump to use they just don't think on top of it all Bernie Sanders is going to be in which swing voters in the states are going to decide the presidency and therefore they don't see the point anyway if they think it's it presents from a choice of voting for somebody that is equally problematic just differently cell and on top of that won't even wait and that's just for them a double whammy so I I'm curious what the what then do they do did they sit it out completely do they actually vote for Donald Trump rather than go for about socialist or do they try to find a third party candidate well I I think I think Bernie Sanders who the nominee you're not going to see them do much of anything organizational all right because I even to the extent that you know they got some money behind them in a few different groups which they do which you know in a targeted way could be impactful they're not gonna wanna help Bernie Sanders there's not really an Avenue to see trump I I think that they would hold but not necessarily do anything about they would hope that maybe some centrist third party candidate mergers on you know looking at trump and Bernie is both too extreme but I think they're trying to figure out what it is they do they were telling me yesterday at least some of them that we don't really know what we did we would suggest would after Josh but they're not sure what they
Powell: 'The Republican party has got to get a grip on itself'
"It's a rare pleasure to interview two of America's finest elder states people once but that is exactly the opportunity I had this week when I sat down with Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright both of them of course served as secretary of State Apollo under President George W Bush or bright under Bill Clinton I was invited to them on a stage in new Albany Ohio in front of a group of citizens members the military and first responders let's begin with General Powell talking about all the tumult in American politics today surrounding the whistle blower uh and that phone call between the presidents of America and Ukraine we have this situation in Washington with the preliminary investigation being done by the House of Representatives under Mrs Pelosi and you just gotta ask yourself where does this all go well WanNa go to constitutional way choose following the constitution and the law and she's created an organization within the House of Representatives to look into these things and that's what we ought to do but it's hard to look into it when the other side in the White House is cursing out everybody calling a member of Congress trader calling a guy who wrote this that he's something wrong with him he didn't write it we had a lawyer write it for him or he's a spy spy he's an intelligence officer somewhere in the United States government who sat down and wrote this out he didn't slip into news however he didn't go on television and discuss it he put it into the system like he was supposed to do you think he's a Patriot sure he is any reason he's not true this I used to see some of these things when they came in over the over the transient through the objection means of getting something up and I think he is a Patriot I don't see anything that suggests he's doing anything that is improper and as you know his paper has now come out after all the channels he didn't break free and go talk to the press he let the system handle itself and the paper that he put out has a lot of consistency with some of the things the White House put out so what we need to do is I hope get this investigation is inquiry done as quickly as possible and let's stop screaming at everybody and cursing people coyle calling people traders and calling them spies and using all of these names of degradation when all we're trying to do is find the answers so let's cooperate with each other in this in the Congress and get an answer to it and move on to you think Nancy Pelosi is doing the right thing absolutely and I think it was very interesting thing in listening to her when she talked about this I thought she was very measured and serious talked about the constitution and saw it as a process I think it wasn't easy because I think the nothing is easy in terms of making a decision like that but I she respects the institution I think we both have talked about the importance of the institution and the Constitution there is ah it's set up in a way that Congress has a responsibility here and I think the question is the one you asked what was this phone call about it is possible that a president will make a mistake in talking to some other leader on a issue that is state managed which is is why in fact you have other people on the phone and you can say you might WanNa have worded that differently and have somebody follow up this had nothing to do with state business as far and nobody kind of said anything about it except this man or woman that has been the whistle blower Colin what do you think the Republican Party's responsibility is your lifelong Republican you say that well let me put a different the Republican Party desperately wanted you to be it's presidential candidate ninety ninety six allows you you were very important figuring the Republican Party get I'm actually right I'm not gonNA dogs in the case but as such an important republican do you worry that the party is putting putting party or maybe even and trump before country started saying I had no political affiliation during my first thirty five years in government and the army as a career military officer had no party and it was only when I left and there was attention being given to me about running politics that I said no it's not me and identified myself as a Republican but also made it clear to people I was Republican who's Ronald Reagan's national security adviser I was Republican who work George Herbert Walker Bush and worked for George W Bush I'm a moderate Republican who believes that we should have strong foreign policies wrong defense policy but we have to look for people and we ought to work hard to making sure we're one country one team and so on that basis I call myself okay but in the state of junior you really nothing you can be anything you want any day of the week what do you think do you think that DNC question Republican party has got to get a grip on itself right now Republican leaders and members of the Congress both Senate and the House are holding back because they're defied of what will happen any one of them if they speak out what will they lose a primary I don't know why that's such a disaster but literally the primary and so they they need to get a grip and when they see things that are not right they need to say something about it because our foreign policy is shambles right now title judgment and I see things happening that are hard to understand a couple of weeks ago the president put a circle around Southeast Alabama it saying that it's going to get hit by hurricane we put it on top of the meteorological prediction and the meteorologists said no no no no and in my time and her time one of us would have gone to the presidency was president screwed up so we've got to fix it and we'll put out a correction you know what they did this time they ordered the Commerce Department to go out and back up whatever the president misled this country supposed to run and congress is one of the petitions that should be doing something about this all parts of Congress the media has a role to play we all have enrolled by we've got our number the remember the all of these pieces are part of our government executive branch Congress Supreme Court and the fourth estate we've got to remember what the Constitution started with we the people the president
Joe Walsh: Strongly considering primary challenge to Trump
"Donald trump's approval rating among republicans sit somewhere between eighty or ninety percent which is pie although that comes with a bit of an asterisk asterisk which is that trump is driven a lot of people away from identifying as republicans people like michigan congressman justin amash who called for trump's impeachment and who was a republican in good standing but has now switched to being an independent. He's the kind of person who wouldn't show up one of those polls. Here's the fundamental problem. There are a number of self described conservatives who do not like like donald trump but most don't really have any political base or power and that's the problem facing anyone wants to mount a primary challenge the president and the g._o._p. And yet interestingly thinly enough there are people who want to give it a shot anyway for massachusetts governor. William weld is in he has declared he is running now. Former south carolina governor and congressman mark sanford former former illinois congressman and talk show radios joe walsh appear closer during the race and challenging the president and anthony scaramucci says he's going to rustle up a bunch of ex trumpers to take the president on as well ultimately the stakes. Here may be mostly about donald trump. Som psyche almost certainly going to trounce any republican challenges him and yet. There's a lot of reporting that suggests team is obsessed with staving off primary challenges here discuss a reagan administration official and share the center for equal opportunity linda chavez and former tea party activists been how the author of the immoral majority new book about evangelical and trump in co host of the fifth estate podcast linda. I don't know i guess i'm skeptical optical but i'm seeing all those noises it looks like sanford and walsh will get in scaramucci is trying to rustle up some group of folks. Is there anything here you think well. I mean if you look back back at what happened to president. George herbert walker bush in nineteen ninety-two he did get challenged by pat. Buchanan obviously buchanan's challenge well. I think stronger than any of the people we've been talking about are going to be able to muster against trump did harm him and i think it set him up for ultimate failure in the general election. I think that's what this is. All about. None of these guys that we're talking about are likely to defeat donald trump unless trump goes evan farther off the rails and then we've seen him so far but being able to damage him being able to come at him as walsh might from the right could could have some impact and might dampen
El Paso, Donald Trump And President discussed on NorCal Auto Talk
"Still reacting to the shootings in el Paso and Dayton and I told you after the Muller testimony fizzled they're gonna go back to racism and that's exactly what they did that's exactly what they're doing right now how does this translate to Donald trump's racism the el Paso shooter was apparently inspired by white nationalist material he read especially in his manifesto he points to a book he read in twenty eleven let's see that's what five years or so before president now president trump descended the escalator trump tower and specifically said in the manifesto that I've had these shoes for a long time the media's gonna say it had to do with trump doesn't that's exactly what they did their knowing the Dayton shooter because the Dayton sure doesn't fit the script Dayton shooter want socialism Dayton shooter said he would support Elizabeth Warren let's see how many shootings were there under various other presidential administrations George Herbert Walker bush there were four mass shootings during his administration he serve only one term forty one dead thirty six hundred Bill Clinton eight Kathleen column by sixty two dead seventy eight injured George W. bush hate clothing Virginia Tech seventy five def sixty two injured so far Donald Trump Johnny these to the just happen six probably hundred fifteen dead Bronco BAMMA served two terms eight years there were twenty four mass shootings two hundred and thirty six dead so there were more mass shootings and more people dead during the term of Brocco bomber than any other president did the media blame him well bomb I didn't have any incendiary language Obama was not fomenting divisions among Americans away down which obviously you're comparing apples to truck elder really am I
Eighty Three Percent discussed on KYW 24 Hour News
"Good morning everyone I don't need to say it's a tough morning and I don't want to go through one of these banality is about well we're also concerned I don't want to get a sense from you collectively start with you Susan our nation's been through this process before and every time we ask this question is there a moment is this a moment what do you think if if two hundred and forty nine mass shootings in the space of a year is not enough to force political change why would the two hundred fiftieth one B. eight Jeffrey reminded me that he and I sat at this table on this panel the morning after the tree of life shooting at the synagogue in Pittsburgh and we had no particular answers and I don't know that we have any more answers now about why this would be the turning point that so many Americans say they want to see Jeffrey well you know right after sandy hook a number people observe that what we learned is that the country will accept a certain level of child homicide in order to have the the the gun rights that we have in place and other issues so things didn't change after that so it's hard to imagine that things change after any particular event this does feel a little bit different because the confluence of a gun issue and racism issue and both of those seem to be reaching a boiling point but it's hard to say that this is a a pivot we might be pivoting towered and to you from as I'm in some white people are seem to be tired of talking about thoughts and prayers this idea of having a national conversation around every issue seems inadequate to the moment but we'll see any do you take anything of significance away from tweets this morning from Fred Upton Republican Michigan in the house Lindsey Graham Republican of South Carolina talking about red flag laws finding some place to reposition themselves on that within this conversation well I also think it goes beyond the legislative and I think we all around the table know that too that the issue really when we're talking about the consequences of political rhetoric and where the incentives are people like will hurt are coming back to Congress in part and he didn't say this but it it can't be much fun to be somebody like congressman heard he is one of only three Republicans who said in a district that Hillary Clinton Kerry so now there will be maybe after twenty twenty only two left in districts that Hillary Clinton carried those are the folks I bring a diversity of ideas who are there to sort of raise their hand and say well it might play in your district but it doesn't play here and to bring that kind of conversation but that doesn't happen anymore the people who are willing to compromise those people have all been either defeated or they've left on their own and so what that leaves us with as an incentive structure in Washington where it's all or none in this conversation isn't in some ways isn't that hard to house but we can't have it because there's no and war but into the conversation see there you have it the other mental health issues for it we have to get rid of all guns right they're somewhere in between here and there's also the consequence of the the rhetoric and I think that's going to be and it's obviously been a big issue thus far under president trump's tenure but that there are actual consequences to stoking and inflaming president trump didn't invent this polarization but the constant just stoking of it has actual consequences I mean this the president I think in twenty sixteen there was some general sense with if the if there was a president given his conservative bought a few days for president trump away campaign he could somehow give cover to some Republicans on something like gun control find that you know some common ground as is unlikely that might be this would be a possible president who could do something like that has shown no inclination to do site the idea of being Republicans will follow him just about anywhere as will the base and I think what you're saying though with this particular case if this manifesto is indeed tied to the shooter in the case in el Paso is that president trump is this isn't beyond an issue of of mass shooting it's now it's had tied up into questions about white nationalism about the president's rhetoric and robot from the trump is in an election year so the idea that we can move forward and president trump will be the one to give Lindsey Graham and others the political cover seems extremely I'm a little uncomfortable with the word manifesto I think IT investor kind of credibility that this essay doesn't I think warrant but be that as it may and once a forties and there on this trail now believe they can confirm that the two are linked in it it says the increase in Hispanic population in Texas prompted his action blames Democrat Republican leaders in corporations for failing the country specifies that neither president trump nor any other presidential candidate inspired him expresses support for the Christ Church shooter in New Zealand Jeffrey this is an impossible question to answer but I'm to give you a chance thank you not what can we what ought we conclude about it but what does this tell us possibly that we should think about and maybe act on it tells us that that be another term that might be antiquated now is lone wolf after you have so many lone wolves it's a it's a wolf pack it's not connected in the same way as say ISIS are a kind of structured organizations but there is a common view point shared by different white males in different parts of the world about the condition of the world social media has allowed this to to grow mostly unnoticed people are you don't need a terror organization anymore when people can connect their ideas to each other across social media across the internet and so we're in a we're in a completely different kind of challenge for law enforcement where people are neither radicalized by organizational structures but they're not self radicalized either there's so much help and so I mean I agree with you on the manta it's a screed and what it is is a screen it's a pastiche of ideas that I've been floating around in the nether world of the internet and and these young minds are putting his ideas together and summer taking out and we had a we had a warning of this last month FBI director Chris rate testified before Congress that the FBI investigated nearly one hundred instances this year of domestic terrorism and most of them were associated in some way with white nationalism and the only reason this test when he didn't get more attention I think it's because it was right before Robert Muller was testifying about the the rush investigation but that is a pretty sobering message nearly as many examples of domestic terrorism being pursued by the FBI as international terrorism inside our borders George P. bush is the land commissioner of Texas the grandson of George Herbert Walker bush the son of Jeb bush very quick on Twitter to describe his career in Afghanistan as a naval officer courting him directly on Twitter there now been multiple attacks from self declared white terrorists here in the US in the last several months this is a real and present threat that we must all denounce and defeat Amy do you think that is singularly suggestive of the bush family writ large and you think it will be something that Republicans like will hurt and others will rally around so George Bush is in Texas a state that is obviously incredibly diverse if he wants to run for higher office in the state of Texas he understands and appreciates what that would look like the coalition that you need to put together to win in a state like Texas and the age that he is right now is much younger knowing where we're going we're headed in the future so I think he reflects where where the party needs to go but right now in the age of trump they are in a place where that's not trade just wanted to give you one statistic right now in Congress Lukens represent eighty three percent of the of the hot there hundred districts with the highest share of native born residents so places that have the higher share of non native born residents are held by Democrats gave it sounds like George P. bush is thinking about the future and is suggesting with this tweet it seems to me and to pick up on Amy's point that though this may be the current trajectory he does not believe it is the long term trajectory certainly there's Democrats ago meeting back to Obama days a talked about you know trying to bed in Texas to help turn blue I think though in that you know more immediately of course I was reminded just that president trump himself visited el Paso the same time to give a speech there and if you look I went look back in his speech he talked about his can is immigration agenda did not mention almost anything about the positive aspects of immigration certainly and also you know recited a number of statistics that were inflated in an accurate about the dangers of immigrants undocumented immigrants who called war as a Mexico right across the border one most dangerous cities in the world inflated the number of murders and violent crimes among immigrants this is a president if you think about it too it beyond just the talk about a caravan invasion he talked about an emergency at the border that he had to act and if you look at sort of the the language of this discrete whatever you wanna call it that's it that was posted online by the potentially by the alleged shooter it didn't it echoes quite a bit of that African just just one note on George P. bush I let's let's credit him with electoral act given but let's also credit George Bush and other people in the bush family and other Republicans with being genuinely horrified by the ethno nationalist tilt of the Republican Party and especially its president I mean I think that there are numbers large numbers of people many of whom have left Congress recently who don't like the way this is going and don't like the association of the Republican Party with a kind of white nationalism Susan we know all the lines are going over the long term this is a losing proposition for the Republican Party to give up on black members to give up on Hispanic voters but what we don't know is whether it works in the short term in next year's election Susan page thank you very much we'll be

Twitter goes after Donald Trump for not reciting Apostles' Creed or singing hymns at Bush funeral
"Okay. So here's the leftist media. Yes. And what they're concerned about is Trump isn't a Christian. So you're saying that's can you imagine being in that newsroom. Running down the hall, Jimmy. We'll just use Jimmy Olsen for whatever. Running down the hall. Sure, I've got the story what Trump's not Christian like. Jimmy. It's two thousand eighteen you just now figuring that out. He didn't say the apostles creed. It didn't say the street, but he's he's not Christian like he's portraying himself as as a Christian in order to get the Christian support. So you're saying you're saying we shouldn't believe Trump. Well, I I don't think that the definition of a Christian is whether you say the apostles creed, I know, no, no, it is not in a in a church service. Outside of your church. Right. So I think we'll just try to make that clear right now. I don't know. As a Catholic and the apostles creed is set in every Catholic mass. I don't know if you reject Christianity or Catholicism, if you don't say it every time, even if you're in your own church. I've never been told that that is a rejection of Christianity. I've never read where that is an outright sending you would be passed out. Am I lost my head and not speak it while it's being said in a in a in a in a mass, right? Do I have to verbal?

So again, I think that it's appropriate whether your political foes or not whether you got that asks kicked or not in two thousand sixteen to respectfully sit there with a guy George Herbert Walker Bush and Bill Clinton had a great friendship. I am based on how political differences apart any aside. Bill Clinton won over George. Herbert walker? Bush nineteen ninety two. Trump won over over Hillary Clinton. She can't show the same graciousness. And there's no reason why revisiting is this. I've got a few people who held on through the break in that appreciates. Let me take these phone calls and carry that story from the blaze that the story. I don't think so okay. We'll make sure that we get that. Because it's just it's one of the stories that make it really this is some administrators somewhere deciding that the American flag is inappropriate. Suggesting strongly. That. In fact, this group of students take down the American flag American flex. We'll have that for you coming up. Let me go to the phone lines. In the meantime, it's Joe New York Joe. What's going on? Hi. Yes. Hello. Thank you for taking my call. I just wanted to ask your opinion about something you take on something. I noticed at Bush's funeral. There was also former president Jimmy Carter and former first lady Roslyn caught. And it struck me how for the Democratic Party has fallen since. I don't know if you've noticed it. They have become so much more radicalize and move so far to the left. I noticed when caught a loss. He accepted graciously. And you know, he he let Reagan just govern. But yet no soon at the Trump win, then Obama declared himself leader of the resistance, and you know, and he doesn't seem to want to go away. No sooner the Trump win that he declared legitimate president. And he's been not s- behavior today notwithstanding. I will give him credit for today. But I noticed that there's been a shift, and you know, they just become so much more radicalized. And and you know, they the aim justified. The means now anything to win and they don't accept wars. And I don't know if you've noticed that way. I think that it actually if you go beyond Jimmy Carter because I don't even think Jimmy Carter was a blue dog. He was kind of a, you know, a leftist as well, especially when it came to the misery index and how he governed and the whole mess with Iran. I mean, the guy was not a very good president. So I think that he started getting more left than we even expected him to get having said that if you go back to like John F Kennedy, Jennifer Kennedy today, policy-wise, not not morality wise because he was in a very moral guy. But but when it came to policy he would be he'd be a Republican today. That's clear the people that we have representing the democrat party today. This goes to your point are I think what we would look at as far left wing, socialists, or even communists fifty or sixty years ago. Do you agree? Absolutely. And you know, I didn't I never voted democratic. You know, I use Carter is my reference. Oh cassettes. When I started getting involved. Reagan was my first he was president. When I started high school into some of my college. Okay. But I you know, I. And we are I think so. Yeah, I sixty five that's when I was born sixty six so you're just a year old tonight. But go ahead. But I've never voted democratic. And I didn't like call it a. But personally, I think he was a pretty decent, man. It was just the politics, and he was civilized. I don't think that's true. The Democrats today. Did they don't seem like civilized Pete? You're speaking out of line because the Democrats are the progressives of the far left are the ones that are writing are the ones that are ruining the ones that are starting fires in and running anti fall. And all these other things in black lives matter. These groups are radical their violent they're angry. And you're right. Jimmy carter. I think is at least his intentions are good, and based in in some sort of belief in God, and Jesus Judeo-Christian a semblance of a value system with Obama and with Hillary Clinton and with and these others that are coming Cortez. And so on they don't have that same sort of moral, compass? They've got a very different thing by any means possible. We must change this country into into a my vision is listen, very good call Joe, I appreciate New York. That was awesome. They're very good stuff. Carry the guys almost the same age as I am speaking. Because I really started paying attention. When Jimmy Carter was in office. And I remember thinking, wow, he's got some big teeth. Yeah. That was I mean seriously that was my first impression what a gigantic smile. Either cartoons of who was all teeth. He's a peanut farmer from from plains Georgia. He had a brother named Billy that drink too, much beer, just sort of this guy that you never would've would've thought would would rise to the presidency. But then as the president he spoke with this with this great, Georgia drawl, you wanted to believe what he said he wanted to believe he's going to do the best for the country, but every single policy I can't think of one that. He did that a guy that was a good one every single policy sucked every single policy didn't make any sense. And it just it was horrific in the misery index that I talk about that would be I believe unemployment inflation and interest rates, and they were all through the roof are all double digits. It was nuts. The economy really sucked because of his policies his handling of the Iran takeover taking over hostages in our embassy. There was ridiculous. It was ridiculous. I'm not going to like the Christmas tree. The the national Christmas tree because that's somehow going to either get our hostages back, and I'm not going to go in and send our athletes to the Olympics until we get our hostages back until I don't know. Russia leaves Afghanistan. The whole thing was ridiculous. It just I mean there wasn't a decision. He made the need sense to me. But he did at least seem to be a compassionate person who happened to be on the left. Today's leftists are screw you. If you don't if you don't think like, we do you should die. If you don't think like, we do you should be thrown in jail, or you should have your free speech rights taken away or you can't fly the flag or you can't have a Christmas celebration in a public school. That's that's how far we've come. And I think that's what he means. It's an idiot. Eight nine four one eight eight eight nine four one seven two four seven joepags dot com right here..

The internet is full of them encomium flowing for George Herbert Walker Bush, and I just I always want to work with the facts and live with the truth from my perspective on the matter. He is one way if you view him in comparison to somebody else, he is another way if you view him in comparison to history, he's another way if you've you in comparison to his son. I mean, there's a lot of ways right? Everything is a matter of perspective vantage point, Ryan, if your vantage point is George W Bush's you going to cry at your dad's funeral I cried at my dad's funeral I think everybody. He cries, it the dads general, it's a human thing. So lots of encomium for my part. Most of it is had geography I have the best. And I'm not even the guy had the best words.

I don't think he ever did Willie Horton stuff media campaign. Anyway, look, he wasn't one term president. Right. Remember this? He was a one term president, George H W Bush is a cautionary tale of his time for being a bipartisan president, he got no credit from his party.

"That George Herbert Walker Bush. Wasn't a great president. Right. One of the things that I really stands out about George. Herbert walker? Bush in retrospect is that he was a great example of how to live a joyous purpose. Great, man. Great, man. And it is I would offer as an argument, perhaps a an unpopular argument that we actually need we need more leadership on how to be good than on how to be ideologically, pure and that when George H W Bush was president. There was a point in his presidency where he had a ninety percent approval rating weren't nothing like that will ever happen again until we fix the problem that you described moments ago that we have we've replaced the pursuits of the inner man with these exterior battles. They get us accolades from the collective and political rage is one of the air of political rage breeds and happiness, but the era of I'm not I'm not defending his political ideology, which of course, I disagree with. But we were a better country when he was president even though we didn't have some of the policy gains that. We've had. Slightly. Actually, I'm not well, not with your point about Georgia chubby, but the point about us being a better country than because the fact is the by the time he left off Seattle thirty three percent approval rating than we elected a guy who everything you could possibly find. So you know, I and and the media I do find it absolutely appalling that the media that rip this man down on tire life. Call them a wimp after he volunteered for the military youngest guy. Why he was a whim and called him called him every name they can think of a racist. 'cause Willie Horton the guy who's not in touch with the common man because they lied about him not being able to grocery scanner and all this nonsense that all of a sudden just like every other Republican dies. Suddenly. Great. They were. And also, the there's no question they're doing this. Because President Trump is president. Right. If if Hillary Clinton president who will be like, we did a fond farewell to George H W Bush. But because Trump is present look at the look at the America. We've lost look at the Republican party. We've lost. They're doing this routine. Now, they did about McCain about George W Bush when you know, God forbid his time come sometime in the future. This this is just the nonsense that nah pedal. But I do agree that one of the things that both right and left have fallen into is the belief that the community that virtue can be had in politics, and the reality is that George H W Bush was not a great president because he was a president out of time. If George H dives talking about this my father, if George H W Bush had been president from nineteen twenty four to nineteen twenty eight he would have been one of the best presidents in American history. His because this was a die who is not there to do stuff. This is a technocrat, right? His job was basically to stay out of people's business. And then do the things that had to be done. Man. That's well. And he was a manager. Right. And that's what a good president was up until the time. We decided that the presidency and the federal government ought to have moral leadership at which point we decided that we were going to cast all of our faith on the person who was in office..

So when I think of President Bush, I think of someone who crossed the aisle, you know, I was really taken by what Carl said about his best friend being a democrat and serve those two terms in congress. And of course, he followed Reagan's pronouncement eleven commandments speak, no evil of another Republican versus Donald Trump who has a polarizing relationship with Democrats clearly fractured, but also attacks other Republicans who don't agree or embrace him. And again, I think also policy issues like gun. You know after Oklahoma City and ninety five President Bush quickly NRA quit his lifetime membership after what happened in parkland, Florida. You see President Trump not only say that we should arm teachers, but continue to do business with the NRA. If you needed any more proof of how this is going to be utilized very much in the same way. The the death of John McCain and the funeral John McCain was used here here. It is here. It is what what did the NRA have to do with parkland, the answers, absolutely nothing, and John Williams knows this and chooses not to care, but look how quickly he was able to make the pivot to you. See this is why. George Bush, so great and Trump is so awful. They didn't think Bush was great when he was alive. And then think you great we was president. They thought he was a jerk. They thought he was terrible. They thought he let us to war. They thought he attacked this. They thought. Name the whole list of things. No, one was happy. They were thrilled to get him out of office and get Bill Clinton in there. 'cause man he was going to really show. What's up? And then we got the the Clinton years. That they care. I don't know. Maybe I'd become the Senate. But that's usually not my style. Cynic is not my style. What other proof? Do I need. I believe that this is what we're going to get for the next four days, and I will not sit idly by and have the lionising. Of President Bush. Now, I'm not speaking ill about the man, and you know, policy conversation, I think is just fine. I don't think there's anything wrong with having a policy conversation on anything wrong with asking whether or not the things he acted or or things he said or didn't fall through on. We're are worthy discussion or had a repercussions. Sorry. Read my lips Nonni taxes is one of those lines that kinda goes down in in history. And there are other things that people could talk about I think that's more than okay, I think that's absolutely acceptable. What I find unacceptable is people saying Gladis dead. Those kinds of people. I I I have no time for for those people at all. Nor will I have time for those people who want to lionize the man who say, oh, we only had more presidents like George H W Bush the same thing about George Bush. They're gonna be the same thing about George Bush, but you will have lived through it and you'll be able to say to yourself. What the hell is this? They hated George Bush more than anything. They wanted him dead. They he was illegitimate. They despised him. Now of a sudden, he's he's a Michelle Obama's partner in crime. What the what the hell is this? What the hell is this? I don't think you have to be adversarial with people from from a different political party. I find it awkward. Awkward that. He would be that that she would consider it. So chummy considering how often Barack Obama said it was all Bush's fault and attacked in a visceral Bush on a daily basis for years, even when it was clearly his fault. His inability to move in Konami forward to help congress spur better economic policies. Still blamed it on Bush dot driving things. In the ditch. That's.

Doorways probably doorways of the mind, you never thought would be open with regard to the Kennedy assassination as the dust settles for the fiftieth anniversary two years in and finally coming up with the names places and speaking of which. I keep thinking to myself. You had the first attempt at a coup d'etat against FDR provided by businessmen in Prescott Bush. We have Richard Nixon was a protege of Prescott Bush, and of course, George Herbert Walker Bush the son of Prescott Bush chewed names that seemed to be going hand in hand with LBJ and Allen Dulles on this. And of course. The Nixon ambush come back to lead our country. Would you see these names are correct? And being a part of this in some way. Oh, absolutely in so many ways Bush in particular. Go back to Prescott Bush who was what Hitler's banker in America. And then you have his son, George H W Bush, whose is apart of petroleum company was used as a cover for the bay of pigs invasion, and then you have the possibility which I would say was more than a possibility. It was a reality actually of George H W Bush's presence in Dallas on the day that Kennedy was killed. In fact, there's even a photograph which looks like it could be George H W Bush, and there is some documentary evidence wishes explored pretty well in the book by Russ Baker family of secrets, which you know, to my mind, really Deccan documents it pretty. Well that he actually was in Dallas. And then he made this little trip later that afternoon to Tyler Texas bound the road about thirty minutes a. Some kind of a memo to the FBI or something, you know, some bogus charge of our allegation that somebody in that he knew might have been involved with some anti-castro people and so forth who might have had something that nothing to it. But all that that seemed to have served was to establish that George H W Bush was not actually in Dallas when Kennedy was killed when in fact, he probably was what about J Edgar Hoover memo that said, and this is I quote from the memo the substance of the foregoing information was early. Furnished to Mr. George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency and captain William Edwards Defense Intelligence Agency on November twenty thousand nine hundred sixty three by Mr. vitae Forsyth of this bureau. Yes. And actually some investigation was done, and they found out you know, that. Yeah. There was another George Bush who was working in some very low level capacity with the CIA, and he didn't have anything to do with it. And there's no way it can be shown the only George Bush that Edgar Hoover could be talking about him that memo is the one that we all know as George H W Bush who started out as a congressman here in Texas, whom I met watched by the way back when I was a teenager. And who later went on to become a, you know, he was a congressman in Texas. He was also director even though he had no apparent qualifications to be such. Right. And then he became president as we know and founded this Bush dynasty, which we're still not rid of yet. Now, we got Jeb in the works. And of course, he that long line of you go from Nixon to to Bush was going to be the successor Nixon when he resigned, but turn out to be Gerald Ford who was part of the Warren commission.
