"That's number one. On the fiscal side, Biden is introduced. He hasn't pulled it back. He's introduced the biggest spending bill in mankind's history. And you might say, well, what does that mean? It's a massive increase over the prior year. So he's not going to cut back even on the increases that he's proposing. So when it comes to the fiscal side, the fiscal side continues to be akin to a Hunter Biden. Hooked on crack. Except this time it's his father. Hooked on. Spending like a drunken Marxist. As I've said before, Reagan took the opposite tax slash taxes. Attempted to slash spending, but held back as much as he could on the spending. Given that Congress never stops and then so much of the budget now is automatic. But he did those things. So the people wouldn't suffer, and so on the fiscal side, there would be growth, maybe not as much as he wanted While interest rates are going up so that still be liquidity in the system. In the private sector, less for the government sector. And as a result of that, with Volker at the helm, interest rates came down and the GDP went through the roof. We actually had a quarter where it was almost 8%. And that economic growth and the growth and employment was so massive it went through the George H W Bush presidency right into the Clinton presidency for which Clint, of course, took credit. But it was massive. Massive. The economy grew 25% in 8 years. Under Reagan. 25%. Last
Jim Jordan Pens Letter to Bennie Thompson Ahead of Jan. 6 Hearing
"Jim Jordan a great patriot Sent a letter To many Thompson The chairman of this rogue operation Who tried to prevent George Bush from being seated as president and then Donald Trump the irony We've never had a committee of Congress subpoena members of the opposite party Obviously we're going to places now because of the totalitarian mindset of Nancy Pelosi and her thugs In the letters a long letter it's a comprehensive letter It's an important letter for the record And I don't have time to read all of it to you but I have read it all to myself And among other things he objects to and I quote how the select committee was only targeting Republican members for testimony And did not sought testimony from any Democrat members with responsibility for oversight of the security of the capital complex That's why if you watch this tonight you're really betraying yourself There's a Democrat DNC effectively paid for with your tax dollars piece of propaganda crack
Remember, a Candidate Has Every Right to Challenge an Election Process
"A candidate including the sitting president of the United States has every right Every right To challenge an election process and not just in court There is absolutely nothing in the United States Constitution that gives judicial review To state courts over the election process now they've assumed that authority in many respects it's a political process It's what it is Say constitutional granted political process If a president wants legal advice because he believes he has enough information to suggest fraud or the changing of laws and violation of the federal constitution so forth He is every right to fight that Al Gore fought the election in 2000 he went to the courts Many members of his party during the county process objected to George Bush being president of the United States Now this is going to be a critically important point
John Zmirak and Eric Reflect on the Iraq Invasion
"There are certain things you can't make up. I mean, I want to frame this again for people who aren't paying attention because maybe they're not, they're not tracking, I was for the Iraq invasion back when. You were against it. And I remember talking to you and not understanding, I thought, aren't all conservatives for this isn't Saddam Hussein, a monster. And by the way, of course, he was a truly evil monster. There's no doubt about that. But it didn't occur to me at the time that there are reasons not to attack Saddam Hussein and so on and so forth. So I was for it. All these years later, thanks to not just John's mirac, but Donald Trump, we have had a reevaluation. And I think that people now realize not only was it wrong, but it was a disaster on many levels. And then we start understanding that all the people who got us into the many messages in which we are today also got us into the mess of the Iraq War. It's the neocons. It's not magga people. It's not people who want to put America first. It's globalists. It is really tremendously wicked. And so here you have George Bush, do the ultimate Freudian slips of all time. So wonderful. It's the sort of thing that Will Ferrell would make up on SNL or something. But no, no, this actually happened. It's so great. I mean, the underlying reality is grotesque. We are, we killed between 507 100,000 civilians in our invasion of Iraq, which was based on false intelligence and made up junk intelligence that the neocons were shoving past the FBI and putting straight into The White House. There were hundreds of experts saying there are no weapons of mass destruction. The UN inspector said there are no weapons of mass destruction. Nobody had any real evidence of weapons of mass distraction. Colin Powell gets goes in front of the UN with doctored photos that don't represent what he says they are. Condoleezza Rice says, we don't want the next smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud in Manhattan. They use our trauma over 9 11 to make us think that Saddam Hussein is building nukes and is going to smuggle them into America. They make us think he was involved in 9 11, which he wasn't. They make us think he was getting uranium, which he couldn't. I mean, it was just this for rago of lies. And I guess Eric, you're a nicer person, maybe because you grew up in Connecticut, you didn't think your own political leaders of your own party were lying to you to get back. No, of course I
Conservatives Aren't Good at Holding Conservative Leaders Accountable
"What's fascinating to me is how those of us who would describe ourselves as conservatives typically don't hold our leaders accountable to conservative principles. In other words, George Bush, in many ways, was not much of a conservative. And we let him get away with that at the time. And so that's shame on us. Because honestly, the more time passes, the older you get, the more clear it is, that you can never let this go. You can never let this go. You have to, we have to make the case for these conservative principles. And you know, I don't even want the word conservative. These are foundational American principles. This is the founder's vision of small government of genuine liberty. I talk a lot about this about how we have ceased to really teach what that is. And as you see, to teach what that is, it's much easier to drift, which is why we've been
"george h w bush" Discussed on This American President
"President George H. W. Bush had seen it all. He was a war hero, a public servant, and, of course, a president. He was arguably the central figure in one of America's great political dynasties. But who was he beneath the public image? Who are the figures that had the biggest influence on his life? In this episode, we will explore the answer to these questions with Jay Randy Tara barelli. Author of grace and steel, the women of the bush dynasty. So thank you for being on our podcast on this episode. You've.
President Biden Responds to SCOTUS Leak
"Let's go to Joe Biden, cut number 5 in The White House. Change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can't be in classrooms with other children. Is that legit under the way that the decisions are written? What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this mega crowd is really the most extreme political organization that's existed in American history. In recent American history. Let's just unpack that. First of all, put aside the Ku Klux Klan, put aside the Nazi sympathizers, put aside the John birch society, put aside antifa, put aside the January 6 protester, the maga kraut. In reference to the Supreme Court decision by 5 justices, three of whom were nominated by president Trump, all of whom were distinguished jurists long before president Trump came down the escalator as candidate Trump. And of course, the chief justice and clarence Thomas had been on the court for a very long time in justice Alito was a George Bush appointee as well. W Bush appointee. And I'd be sure that that HW Bush, let me George W. Bush appointee. And I'm just here to he came up after Harriet Meyers with withdrawn. So it's cheap justice Roberts than justice Alito. I'm just sure to tell you, the uniter in chief, that's just not true. This is such an over the top comment that, again, it's like the Pope saying NATO is responsible for invading Russia. Maga is the most extreme. And by the way, LGBTQ children, I understand some children so identify, I also understand that no teacher in America would ever separate them and they also understand that that would fail rational basis review. It is the reddest of herrings I have ever heard. It's the stupidest thing I've actually ever heard Joe Biden say.
Revisiting President Bush's 2005 soTU Speech
"Me conclude our time by talking about the horribleness animals. Horribly, and is 2005. And that is the year of George W. Bush beginning his State of the Union. This isn't in the book, but I just want your reaction to it. Mister speaker, vice president Cheney members of Congress, fellow citizens, as a new Congress gathers, all of us in the elected branches of government share great privilege. We've been placed in office by the votes of people we serve. And tonight, that is a privilege we share with the newly elected leaders of Afghanistan, the Palestinian territories, Ukraine, and a free and sovereign Iraq. Your reaction to how George Bush began 2005 before I tell you the rest of it, Matt. Well, and even before that State of the Union was his second inaugural, where he proclaimed that the policy of the United States would seek the end of tyranny in our world. He began it with huge ambitions here. He was going not only to pursue the freedom agenda globally, but he was also going to introduce national accounts into social security. He was going to warrant immigration. And those grand ambitions, I think that nemesis pretty quickly after that State of the Union address.
How Is the Obama Administration So Insulated From Media Scrutiny?
"We saw coming out of the Patriot Act, as you said, that first few years of W's and George Bush's administration into the Obama administration. You know, one of the things that I think is so underreported is Obama administration and we're transitioning this into a little bit later, was so, oh, we're going to get along with the world. We're using this. They were one of the heaviest users of drones and I mean, I mean, how do they how does the Obama administration continue to be so insulated from scrutiny from the mainstream media, even after he's been out of office now for so long? It's a mindset. Listen, I remember the summer of 2008 like it was yesterday and the media was cheering on Barack Obama. There was no chance for John McCain to win that election because the media had fallen in love with the idea that the first black president was going to be elected and then he had this great new liberal progressive agenda that would take us away from the policies of George W. Bush and the wars. In fact, Obama sustained those wars continuously, continued to exercise in some cases, extend the powers of the Patriot Act and became a regular consumer of information that had been unmasked and in fact the unmasking requests under Obama went way up. So did the violations of civil liberties. That's one of the most important things in November of 2016 as Barack Obama is about to head out the door. He drops on the fisa court. Oh, we forgot to tell you about 5 years worth of violation. Sorry about that judge. And they drop all of these violations as they're going out of the door so they wouldn't get in trouble. If the Trump administration came to the court, 5 years of just chronic violations of American civil liberties, they had less regard for civil liberties than the Bush administration. The record in the fisa court is now ultimately clear about that.
Trump: 'Nobody Was Ever Tougher on Russia Than Me'
"Way, this could lead to World War three. I see what's happening. Because if you think Putin is going to stop, it's going to get worse and worse. He's not going to accept it. And we don't have anybody to talk to him. You had somebody to talk to him with me. Nobody was ever tougher on Russia than me. I'm the one that stopped the pipeline. I haven't stopped. I'm the one that put all the sanctions on. And I'm the one that he didn't attack during our administration. Everyone's asking about that now, even the radical left reporters up there. The only president this century not to witness Russia invade a neighbor that was, of course, president Trump this weekend in South Carolina. What has happened in the last few days? What will happen in the next few weeks to come? Let's talk to somebody who is more qualified than most to talk about it. He is my rabbi at Salem. He is Dennis prager, the founder of prager university, most recently the author of the rational pass over Haggadah, Dennis. Welcome back to America first. Great to be with you. That was a powerful excerpt. One did he just say that a rally Saturday night Saturday night? Yeah, Saturday night. And it was quite the rally. It was 25°. It was freezing. He only spoke for 45 minutes to shocked everybody, but I think he didn't want anybody to catch pneumonia. But he stated this three weeks ago at cpac, the only president to not have Russia invade under his watch under George Bush it was Georgia under Obama it was Crimea and now again we are
"george h w bush" Discussed on The Psych Central Show
"And that's a really scary thought. But if I tell you, oh my gosh, it was the government did an LBJ did and they were empowered with this one and this one, the CIA, and there was a whole group now it seems like it's so much harder to disrupt us. So between those two things, which is the safer thing for believers to want to believe. The idea that it takes a lot of disrupt us or just one person. And so people want to believe the most complex convoluted thing because they want the world to work in a way that makes them right. And I think there is a psychology of America revealed. So we know that there's always going to be a fringe group that believes in ridiculousness. You know, again, we have people who believe that the earth is flat, for example. So let's take them out of the equation. Let's talk about sort of the middle people, right? The people in the middle of the road because secret societies are real, except that we've heard of them. So I think of the order of the skull and bones, right? This is a real secret society that does in fact exist, but then we compare that to another famous secret society like the Illuminati. That one doesn't exist. So if you're a reasonable person trying to evaluate this data, you can't just hear, oh, secret societies are BS. That doesn't exist because you've got one that's real and one that's fake, but they're disgust everywhere like they're both the same. What we do is we want to make we want to lump everything together and here come the freemasons and here comes skull and bones. And here comes an Illuminati. And any group of people that are doing something that we don't know are all twirling their mustache and stroking their cat and taking over the world. What we don't want to stop and do because we're such a short attention span society to stop and say, okay, one by one, let's go. Okay? I know friends who are in skull and bones. I have a friend who went to Yale and he was like, yeah, there are fraternity. They're like, they have a lot of history, but they're not taken over the world. But you can look at who their people are. You can look and see what presidents were in there. I remember I was actually having lunch. I'll never forget what George H. W. Bush. And I remember he said to me at the time, he's like, can you do me a favor? Because you saw that we were trying to debunk all these conspiracy theories. It's hard work because there's so much nonsense out there to get through. And he said to me, like dead serious, but also kind of partially joking like, can you tell him to stop believing that I have, I forget it was like, there's some Native Americans head that people on the Internet soft has had himself. He's like, can you tell him I don't have it or whatever it was? This is a former president of the United States saying like, why do people think I'm involved in this nonsense? And like laughing at it like this is a joke like I carry around a human head somewhere. And if a president, what hope does a regular person have, and I remember I was in a cab once with a cab driver. And we were talking about some issue in the news and he was telling me like, oh, this president is secretly sold out to so and so I said, okay, let's just break down what you said. To have what you just said happen. It means the president of the United States has to be bought by this person and then those people have to keep this secret and all the people that control that have to keep it secret. And I said, do you think that logically, does that seem real to you? And when I finally broke it all down and said, all those things can they all realistically happen? Nobody said to me, he said, I'll never forget he paused and he was like, sometimes just hard to know what's true. I knew in that moment we were screwed as a society. Because it is so hard to separate that secret society like the Illuminati from the others. Now, break it down and you do a little research. Sure, you can see a pretty quickly what has proof and what doesn't. But no one wants to take that time. It's much more fun to tell a ghost story. So let's talk about that for a moment because I agree. I love ghost stories. It's one of the greatest things about fiction. You can go to places that it just doesn't exist in the real world. Do you use some of this psychology of people wanting to believe these things to craft your novels to give people that escape? Is your understanding of our desire for this to be true? What makes you such a good author? I know one thing over these years and that is I'm not that special. And if I find something kooky crazy out there to be fascinated and worth digging into, I know I'm not that special. There are other people who want to find it. So as a perfect example, I found a couple of years ago about four years ago. I was doing information about mount weather and high point is called, which is the place where when Dick Cheney and 9 11 happened where.
We Always Knew What Putin Was All About
"Anything about Putin and I've spoken to a lot of people over the years who have studied him, I've done my own reporting as far back as I told you when I was in Haley Gandalf, Germany for G 8, which Russia was a part of Russia really dominated a lot of that conversation back in June of 2007. And what we learned in June 2007 was what the Ukrainians had been warning of for years. I can remember as a reporter covering from here, not in Ukraine, but from here the orange revolution of Ukraine back in 2004, we knew what his aspirations were, that was fully on display in 2007, we've continually made mistakes. Administration after administration, George Bush, somehow saw Putin as a good guy as a nice guy and John McCain's famous quote was, you know, I looked into his eyes and saw pure evil. Anyway, we have mistakenly been quite mistaken about him. At various times, as to the Trump administration, they're handling the situation. You know, we'll see how this all shakes out, but I will point out that this is happening now. It didn't happen then. So why is it happening now? And why are we in a situation where we have to worry about China, ganging up with Russia against us? While simultaneously get a load of this, we still haven't fully cut off the darn Russian energy. We have not stopped importing Russian energy. Now there is word on trading floors. Nobody wants to go near this stuff. Russian energy is trading oil, for example, around 27 bucks a barrel. You compare that with the 113 here, you can see there's quite a spread, but nonetheless, there is a market to sanitize or launder believe it or not oil, and there are people that do that. So somebody still making sure that Russia gets something.
John Zmirak: Don’t Let the Biden Regime Suck Us Into a Nuclear War
"What do you have for us that we can talk about today? The latest piece which I'm afraid will still be topical for some time. Don't let the Biden regime suck us into a possible nuclear war to cover its failures. Well, there's a lot to be said on the issue of Russia, I have to say, I think I've said it on this program before, I have never understood. And I'm listen, I'm always happy to be wrong. I really meet people, maybe think people think I'm kidding. I'm happy to be wrong. But when the Soviet Union fell in 91, whatever, it just struck me that this was an opportunity to welcome them into the community of nations. They certainly were not going to turn into America 1776 overnight, but I thought this is a great thing. But I guess there were people in the we could call it the deep state now. I don't know who have a mindset that it's like 19 57. And they still think we're competing with Russia, Sputnik, and this narrative has continued and continued. They used it against Trump, viciously really did great harm to the country. Culminating in the moment in which we find ourselves. It seems to me. Oh, yeah. I mean, look, for a lot of people saw this fall into Soviet Union. It's an opportunity to pillage Russia and the Russian people. Jeffrey Sachs a Harvard economist, one of the great the Hillary Clinton thought elite went over there and told them to how to set up their economy. They set it up in a way that about 7 oligarchs were able to steal virtually everything that was or was a nail down in Russia. That's right. We started to, we had a bunch of congressmen and foreign policy wonks, most of them associated with the George Bush family. Funded by military contractors set up a committee to expand NATO.
Mark Levin: Sen. Bernie Sanders Never Stood up for Anything
"Go ahead There is a massive effort right now Worse in modern American history To undermine the very foundations of American democracy and that's all built on the big lie that Trump really won the election at 2020 No no no no no It's built on the big lie that the vote is being suppressed Tell me Bernie Sanders did George Bush when the election in 2000 Your party said he didn't Did he win the election in 2004 at your party said he didn't Did Donald Trump win the election in 2016 Well I'll tell you what's funny You are a senator from Vermont you never stood up and told your party to stand down You never stood up and defended the election of 2016 You never stood up and said what's this Russia collusion crack You never stood up and said stop with a phony impeachment Stop with the coups You never stood up and say we need to investigate what took place in the prior administration at the FBI and the intelligence agencies And at the foyer court you never stood up and say what this Mueller investigation is criminal investigation You never stood up and said crap Not a damn thing And now he says the worst in modern history to undermine the very foundations of American democracy Which is exactly what Bernie Sanders believes him Yet Bernie Sanders speak out against the riots in 2020 Not that I recall certainly not in any significant way
Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuliffe Still Hung on 2000 Election
"I just played for you the discussion on critical race theory He doesn't even know what it is He knows the teacher should have no say in the school system Excuse me He knows that parents parents should have no say in the school system that teachers and their unions and the educational bureaucrats and the superintendents should control everything meaning the left Doesn't matter what your kids are taught about sex and perversion and immorality It doesn't matter what your kids are talking about race And racism and that they get sucked into that whole mindset That's where Terry mcauliffe is But it's even worse than that This reporter was really quite good on Fox 43 last night which is the a local station And again in this round table discussion you see turn a caller said that the election of George Bush was illegitimate The bush was actually beaten by Al Gore That's what he said And yet when it comes to Trump of course Trump is crazy for raising any questions about this last election right Take a listen to this Go ahead But in 2004 you said this about the election where president Bush beat Al Gore Let's go back to Florida We actually won the last presidential election folks They stole my president's election Okay so first I want to talk about this Was president George Bush legitimately elected Well we went through a very contentious 2000 if you remember And I remind you it went all the way to the United States Supreme Court And it took them through the second week of December they actually make a decision and the Supreme Court for the first time in the history of our country stopped the counting of ballots in
Virginia Gubernatorial Candidates Youngkin, McAuliffe Participate in Roundtable Discussion Thursday
"Terry mcauliffe beat himself up last night in a one on to interview in the so-called virginia roundtable and he just punched himself out. If it was a fight they would have stopped it. They said terry wanna leave now. Because you're so bad. Glenn young already winning glenn. Young gonna win you. You're desperate and you're terrible. I wanna go in reverse order of his nightmare comments last night and for the rest of the country. Terry mcauliffe is indeed the same terry mcauliffe. You've heard about for forty years. He's the jack the lad. Virginia politics is just a sort of buffoonish character. Arrogant smug everything. You don't want an elected official in old and around forever in reverse order of bad answers. Let's start with his lease bat. Answer where he tries to avoid the fact he called for overturning. The election of two thousand and and threw dirt on two thousand and four cut number fifteen in two thousand four. You said this about the election. Where president bush beat al gore. Let's go back to florida president. Jose okay so i i want to talk about. This was president. George bush legitimately elected but we went to a very contentious. Two thousand if you remember and remind you. It went all the way to the united supreme court and it took them through the second week of december to actually make a decision and the supreme court for the first time the history of our country. Stop the counting of ballots in florida in overturned the local virginia or the florida supreme court. So he got sworn once you're sworn we gotta move on but do not forget. That was very important. That the supreme court of florida stopped. The counting. a balanced wasn't the case in twenty twenty. Well you came out with a new ad this week challenging mr young kuenz prioritizing election integrity. You said glen again casting doubt on election result and putting trump's conspiracy theories i. This behavior is dangerous. And it's disqualifying so my question to you is. What is the difference between what you've said and when you're accusing him of well i'll say it again. That case in two thousand went to the united states supreme court.
John Zmirak: George W Bush Equated Ashli Babbit With Jihadists
"John's merrick. What's on your mind. Well i just finished reading the letter of ashley. Abbott's mother responding to george. W bush ashley bavin whose daughter answered george bush's call and joined the us and fought in iraq in our air force and then protested on january six. You know she committed a crime of trespassing. She climbed through someplace. It wasn't supposed to and the capitol. Police shot her dead. No she tried. She tried to climb through but she was murdered. by someone whose name. I guess. We're never going to know you know what maybe general milley can do. He could do us a solid and go behind the back of the Current fake president. And maybe he could get that name to us because he's a stand up guy. He cares about america. She was shot dead by a capital police officer. For no reason she wasn't carrying seven. She wasn't threatening anyone. And here. George w bush. The man who in a sense lured her into the us military. She signed up because of his war on terror. Here he is equating. Ashley babbitt to muhammad atta and all those other filthy jihadi psych psych of ads who attacked our hometown. I think it is for us to establish why we think this is such a despicable thing for the former president to have said it's deeply shameful. He seems to be in bed with whatever you call at the deep state i mean look. His father was cia. His father was as deep state president as it gets. But i really believe w was different from his father. Oh yes he appoints cheney and rumsfeld. But i did not believe because i thought this men's an evangelical christian he's from texas. He doesn't seem to be the kind of guy that would buy into that stuff. But then we see pictures of him and his father schmoozing with the clintons. Now pictures of him. You know hugging a barack and michelle and you begin to wonder where he's coming

George W. Bush Compares Domestic Violent Extremists to 9/11 Terrorists in Appalling Speech
"This is the man who i don't know he he he he's meant to be a conservative He was a republican president. He went to shanksville pennsylvania to the field where flight ninety three crashed off to those brave brave men took it back from the territory. Terrorists to save lives in dc and this is what he said on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. This is the man who was president. When nine eleven happened cut to play cup little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful pluralism in their disregard for human life in their determination to defile national symbols. They are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them. Children of the same foul spread so nine eleven bin laden and maga- supporters are the same but lemon antiques. Don't get a mention your action cuddle. Why are they got was the most disgusting thing i i. I've seen in years. You know. I supported that guy. I had his back when he wouldn't defend himself because he was a gentleman.

"Who helps pick him up men and George H. W. Bush. Two of them off on a whole different odyssey. That really, I think, you know, put them in the center of world of that's And George, I'm going to be going back and forth because again that the stories the books are so rich and that that we could go in so many directions, But I want to try toe we these stories together. George Packer, Richard Holbrooke. I used the word complicated that doesn't begin to do justice. To him. But why did you want to write about him and talk about his ambition? What drove him on and and, frankly, the fact what the first quarter of the book is about Vietnam. So he died in December. 2010 hey, was actually stricken in Hillary Clinton's office, the secretary of state's office, which was a fitting finale and a high drama characteristic of him. A few weeks later, his widow offered me his personal papers, and I knew homework a bit. Not very well and I thought I have a chance to explore. A flamboyant, mesmerizing, maddening character whose career covered the half century from Kennedy to Obama from Vietnam to Afghanistan through an intimate look at his diaries and letters and other papers. So I said, yes, without really quite knowing why I said yes. Holbrooke assumes I began to read those letters, and some of them were as you say, Judy. He began his career in South Vietnam, actually in the Mekong Delta, where the war was at its hottest in 1963. And as soon as I began reading his letters from the Mekong Delta to his first wife, I knew I'd made the right choice because he was such a good writer. He was so intelligent, so observant and funny. Um and arrogant and just a guy who could fill a book and maybe more. So. His ambition was, um, an engine, a kind of demonic engine that was there from the very start and then Got him into very high places and led to some triumphs. And also in the end, I think, cost him a great deal, Friendships, relationships and maybe his own heart's desire, which was to rise to the top of his field. He never got there, partly because people found him. To the too difficult and abrasive a person and his ambition. He could never keep it in check Author George Packer, his book Our Man, Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century. Demonic engine. What? What a term Susan Peter talk about Jim Baker and how he I mean. He came to Washington. He ran The campaign for against Ronald Reagan for George H. W. Bush. And yet Ronald Reagan shows him to be his White House chief of staff. Any and he was seen is probably the most successful person at that job. Of this of this modern time. How did he do it? Yeah, That's a great record because he didn't really have a background that would necessarily suggests he was going to be successful. He had been a lawyer up until age some any ran into running George Gerald Ford's campaign in 1976 coming in from nowhere in the wreckage after Watergate. There were no Republicans left of his generation at that, because you know the previous Group, and then you know, Invictus and off to jail and Nixon. Also, it opened up Ah world for people like Jim Baker, Dick Cheney, Brent Scowcroft and a whole new generation of people who kind of came to the fore in his case. I think you know, it's an example of you know, a president that is Ronald Reagan, seeing what makes sense for him. He was an outsider coming into Washington, but he wanted to get things done so he didn't add niece. Who is this? Conrad meet the organizational skills to run a White House didn't understand in Washington to bigger and it's remarkably as you sacks of another president would pick The guy who ran nine just one but two campaigns against him. 76 90 80 as his chief of staff, but end up being I think, as you said in a meeting Ah, smart choice on his part. Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for The New York Times. And Susan. What was that quality in Jim Baker that it got him chosen for that job that made him a successful lazy Was he went on, of course to be Treasury secretary pulled off this big bipartisan Tax plan, which, as we know, you know, we haven't seen anything. Really the likes of it since back during the Reagan years. But what was it about him that that You know, hold it all together. Well, Judy, you know Tim Baker, Right? This is a question. Everybody asks him. He will give you the sort of folksy twang and he'll tell you Well, you know, my family hasn't added. Prior preparation prevents poor performance. But, you know, we all know pretty well that Washington is a city full of ambitious lawyers who do their homework and staff play And, you know, certainly It's true that Jim Bakker was ah, assiduous to the point of obsessive when it came to getting the job done. Man. He was famous for staying in the White House at night in the Reagan White House until he returned every phone call from everywhere and every member of Congress, often after he knew they had already gone home. By the way, this is the pre email pre Internet era. But you know, that's not the secret. Obviously, there are plenty of people who know their brief on are extremely well prepared. Certainly that's one aspect of it, but I think Peter and I found in working on the book. That, you know, in the end for Jim Bakker, Success was really the only option. He's obsessed with winning. And I think the hyper competitiveness is part of what he had in common with George W. Bush. I think that's how they bonded on the tennis courts, and by the way, they're varying stories about how they came to be teamed up a double team, But I think one simple answer is in a picturesque is looking at the other day of Jim Bakker, pointing to the wall before George H. W. Bush Showed up in Houston. Guess you've been the singles champion at the Houston Country Club For the past few years. It was James A. Baker. The third and George W. Bush wanted to be teamed up with a winner. There's no question about that. Tim Baker's father. Exerted. This and his family in general exerted this overweening power over his early years, right, and it's shaped him as a person..

No. But it's funny, and it makes the crowd laugh, but the point being is that it's a really simple joke, but it hits home for a lot of people, right? Like Absolutely. -solutely hot He. heat full. Like three to four credit cards. Exactly. So the audience is laughing, but they're laughing knowing that statistically like two thirds of that audience have a couple of Mexico. Yeah. Yeah. The jitters that they're paying minimum payments on and they'll be paying on it for like twenty years. I mean, that's such a perfect example. And I mean, I I call Dave Dave Ramsey's one of my favorite guys because he speaks everything fourth grade level, but you know, for people that really pay attention to Dave Ramsey. I wouldn't necessarily call him a financial expert as much as I would call him a behavioral expert because if you look at a lot of Dave Ramsey's, you know, investment, and.

"They attack our constitutional order, and and this president perhaps others who tried to clar way back. They're the ones who are said to be acting inappropriately. That's why it is very frustrating to see Bill Buckley's magazine. Take such a preposterous position. And twist the law and twist the logic. Now, I brought up the operation wetback under Eisenhower. Now the media today would teach white Eisenhower was a great president. And of course, they like, George H W Bush now and so forth. And so on anyone but Trump. Reagan who they despised and hated and tried to destroy as a good guy. You know? Many years ago, I read from this article, and I just pulled it back up. And if anything I hope you walk away with this program with more information you had when you started listening. This programs not really for hit and run listeners. It's four people who want to hear what's going on. And here about context, some people call this. What aboutism these are people who are usually leftists who don't want to hear about history or context or anything of the sort. But that's what we do here. Here's a piece that was written in the Christian Science, Monitor twelve and a half years ago two thousand six. How Dwight Eisenhower sobbed illegal border crossings from Mexico?.

"Nation bid. Farewell to our forty first president, George H W Bush. He died on November thirtieth and what followed was a well planned final journey from Texas to Washington and back again, many members of the Bush family traveling with him sharing their tributes and their morning with the public, and we're gonna miss you your decency sincerity and console will stay with us forever before he was laid to rest on December sixth next to his soulmate. Former first lady Barbara Bush. He lost her less than eight months before his own passing. And when she died in April, I had the honour of speaking with FOX's Dana Perino host of the daily briefing and co host of the five she was press secretary for the forty third President, George W Bush, and now a longtime friend of the family, and the interesting thing, especially about forty-one and MRs Barbara Bush is that they had always treated people with a little special, touch, and you felt like you. Belonged one of the things for me that I never wanted to do was to disappoint them. And I don't it's not because they ever worried that I would disappoint them. But they're the kind of people that you want to be proud of you. And I think about their lives in a couple of different ways born in the twenties and going through the depression, though, they would both say certainly that they were from families that did not suffer like many people did in America. But they certainly knew what was going on in America at the time and then World War Two changes their lives because it brings them together. And then I always think of the decision for George H W Bush to not come to Wall Street, and instead try to seek his fortune in Texas and that Barbara Pierce now married to George Hw Bush with a little baby named George W move to Texas. And they live basically in a boarding house. And he starts from the beginning. I love a story that forty-one tells. When he first got to Texas, one of his jobs was painting oil barrels and the owner of the company comes by one day. And he says you a university man is yes, sir. Where'd you? Go. Well, sir. I went to Yale. And the guy says never heard of it. And that was something that I loved about them is that they constantly could be reminded that of their humility such humble beginnings and on purpose. Well, not exactly humble beginnings when they started their life together, but George H W Bush was a risk taker. Right. He becomes a fighter pilot in World War Two. He's shot down over the Pacific. He comes back. He gets married early. He he met Barbara Pierce at Christmas dance when she was sixteen and he was seventeen and he fell madly in love immediately. And so did she and they I together seventy three years. Let's go to Texas what a risk to start his businesses again or risk to run for office. A big risk all of the things along his life that the country asked of him, and he was willing to risk it. And then he decides to run for president the biggest risk of all loses. Ronald Reagan in the primary Ronald Reagan chooses him as his vice president he serves eight years, and then he against all odds really wins the presidency. And then loses the reelection and talk about humbling data also said the former first couple was well aware of changing perceptions with the passage of time. I remember something Marlin fitzwater told me he was the press secretary for Ronald Reagan, and then for George H W Bush as well. And he said that on January twentieth of nineteen ninety three. He never thought that George H W Bush would be thought of fondly in America. Because after you lose you leave the White House with your head hung low, and how wonderful it is that forty one in MRs Barbara Bush have seen that the country. Absolutely adores them was she by default or risk taker as well. Of course. I remember something George W Bush told me when I left the White House, and I wasn't sure what I was going to do. And I joined a PR firm, and it didn't go that. Well, for me, I didn't like being a part of something else. And he said, well, why don't you start your own business? And he said you have to ask yourself. What's the worst thing that could happen? And I think that he learned that from her that you can take risks because your family is going to be here for you. And if you succeed great, and if you don't come home, and we'll figure it out. So yes, I do think she was a risk taker, but she also was a believer in God as well as in her husband and her children all these years later with hindsight is always so much different. Especially for former presidents, George W Bush is often compared to his mother in many ways. Yes. In fact, one of the nicknames that they gave to Barbara Bush was Frank and they cause her Frank around the house because she was so Frank. And forty-three USA tell audiences that he got his daddy's eyes and his mama's mouth. And he said that with complete affection I used to love it when the bushes would come to visit the bushes during the forty three's White House forty-one in MRs Barbara Bush were very aware of the criticism of their son as he was president. And they understood that so well because they had also been the recipient of that type of criticism and forty one and MRs Barbara Bush said nothing hurt them when they were in office. But it hurt them greatly. When their sons were criticized both George W Bush in the White House, and then their son, Jeb when he was governor, and then his failed presidential ambitions. Mrs Bush is quoted as saying cherish your human connections, your relationships with friends and family, but I learned from Dana stories, she didn't just say that she lived by it. There's a story about one time I invited her to a minute mentoring event in Houston, and I asked if she would kick it off and she responded by saying, well, why would you want me? I've never worked a day in my life. And she laughed a little, but the truth is Barbara Bush, never earned a paycheck. Everything that she did was for charity every book that she wrote every foundation that she created the literacy foundation has lasting impacts, and it actually is helping people to read, and so I think about her life as one of such consequence, and she wasn't afraid of it. And she was willing to take those risks a couple of years ago. My husband, and I had a chance to go to Kenny port to visit. And there was a family luncheon that was happening and we were invited to join which was a wonderful privilege for us. And it's great to get to see the Bush family behind closed doors where they're just like every other family making fun of each other and catching up and having a good time, and my husband was helping Barbara Bush with her plate. It was a buffet lunch. And she said, let's stop a minute. And look, and so he stayed with her. And he said he said that she told him we are so incredibly blessed. So she was a term life with gratitude. And at that same minute mentoring event when she did the speech she said earlier today, I call George and I asked him what it was like to work with Dana. And then I call Dana and asked her what it was like to work with George, and what I can tell you my advice to you. Is that loyalty goes both ways? And it will always be that way for me and the bushes for sure. Is there one thing that Barbara Bush said to you that stands out above all else? I think it really is that she recognized that loyalty goes both ways, and she was grateful for people who supported her family for their ambitious goals and their public service. If you think of her life from the twenty s until today in two thousand eighteen what she has seen in what she taught all of us. And she was traditionalist. She was a conservative and so extremely gracious and loved and it's a real privilege to know her. Dana Perino, thank you so much..
