David Gergen Shares His Experiences in the Nixon Administration

"David, I want to start because there's some people in the audience. I get new affiliates every month, and we get 400 and right now. I want them to know that you work for RN, you work for Gerald Ford, you work for Ronald Reagan, you work for Clinton. But you have different sort of styles and roles for each of them. Let's start with president Nixon. What'd you do in the Nixon White House? Nixon White House, I came in, I've been in the navy. I went to law school and I went in the navy for three and a half years. My last year, you know, I was assigned to come back to come to Washington to work on draft reform. That was the time when Nixon had launched a random lottery to determine what draft number you got and whether you're going to go to Vietnam or not. And we tried to clean that up, they ran a bogus in some ways, I ran the moderator first year out. I'll tell you, you have time for a little story. We got lots of time. We can go a long time today. Okay, super. Well, so the next one out of The White House orders a random lottery to determine who goes to Vietnam. The Lewis Hershey was then head of the draft. He was sort of the J. Edgar Hoover of the drafts. And so Hershey did something they did back in the Second World War, which was a very popular war. They got a bowl, they got capsules, and they put January 1 in the first capsule, put it in a bowl, and then January 2, all the days of January, then February, all the way up through the days of December the last ones into the boat. Got a spoon started up a little bit. Put it in the closet. And then on the day on the random monitor, they brought it to bowl, reached in for number one, you ought to Vietnam. And it was like November 15th. And then all of the early all of the early numbers and all of the early draws were from late in the year. So the whole thing was tilted.

"Officials? Why would this not be something we want to grab on to today? Ford talked about this now over 50 years ago. And it still seems that even Republicans and Democrats to, again, continually move around to saying, let's tweak the role of federal government, let's tweak these areas of problems that we find on the federal level. And if we fix it here, then that'll just trickle down, so to speak to the locals. And instead, Ford was very much of an advocate of getting out of the government control process in Washington, D.C. to as much as he would in of direct his spending and things that were coming out of Washington far as regulations, but what he would do was is he actually was talking about block grant, sending the money if you're going to send the money to a state or locality that send it in a block grant and allow the states to manage that to be accountable for that money that the federal government is sending them. At that point, you can then say and allow the locals to say, okay, here's how best this money can be spent. Really reiterating the fact that money spent in rural north Georgia probably is different than the way money would be spent in urban New York City. But when you have a one size fits all policy, when you have a one size governance policy, which Ford, I think here is speaking out against. He's saying, look, he said, we don't have all the answers in Washington D.C.. In fact, we believe in what he was encouraging, was his Congress to look at the issues into then empower local officials and even state officials to say, what and how can you best solve the problems in your area? And it was what he sort of laid out here in saying, returning it to local officials. Can you imagine right now of conservatives would start embracing the ideas that we're starting that are not just being heard in the halls of power of Congress, but we're saying in the voting booth. We saw it last year in Virginia. We see it and we've seen it in local elections and school board elections across the country from San Francisco to Texas to New York where people coming out of this pandemic and in the pandemic are very frustrated with how education was being run how school boards were making decisions concerning masking concerning schools being in session concerning teachers being, you know, how much online learning, how much in person learning, all of this became a point. And when people started showing up parents started showing up to meetings, they were basically rebuffed. They were told in many ways, it was not their problem. And given the impression of why would you question our ideas with a professionals, you're not. And frankly, this is one of the best examples of way the people that we can find is that the people decided, no, the we're the ones who elected you, we're the ones that these are our children if you're talking about and that you'll be a part of will be a part of that decision making process. It may not be on the board itself but we're going to give our input and then when times for election come up, if we feel that you've not done a good job, then we're going to vote you out. We saw that in recalls in California of a school board in San Francisco. So this thought of local control all been around Gerald Ford chooses to bring it out in his last speech before Congress. And I think in a very sensible way. Again, it was into the bigger picture of Gerald Ford looking at how he came into office. The issues that were surrounding it and realizing that if we're this messed up in Washington, D.C., then maybe what we need to do is start looking to the more of a local control more of a local balance of how we can involve people in the decision making process. So again, as we move through this, you see this probability come up more and more. He talks about his accomplishments, talks about China. It's interesting that in the mid 70s, China is only talked about in the terms of we're reaching out. We're seeing that potential. Again, if you go back and look at history, China, although very dominant in our society today, China in the mid 70s was a very much backwards third world. Country. It was even worse than you could imagine with its people. It had no money, had no resource and was just beginning to realize that they could not sustain the way they were going by simply being isolated from the world. And so he does mention China here and I mentioned I'm talking about Africa and other places, but it's interesting to know that China was not on the radar as we would see.

"Glad to have you back down the Doug Collins podcast. Going to jump back into this series that we've been doing talking about the final address as a president and how they actually interact today in today's is one that's going to get really in depth. Not only for the content that it had land but how it relates to today. And that is the Gerald Ford address from 1977. He was the several things that we're going to get into at Gerald Ford that may surprise you in from his background from the things that he went through in his time and not only the House representatives, but going back to even being a football player at the University of Michigan. But one I need you to do is also as you getting ready today is take this download it, like it, share it if you have a comment on there that helps put comments wherever you get your podcasts. That helps us as we share this information with friends. I know a lot of you already sharing. We want to continue to see that happen, but you download, subscribe, share it with your Friends. That helps us grow our podcast family here on the dot com's podcast and we're glad that you're a part of it. So let's dig in. This was a speech that was given by Gerald Ford president of the United States in 1977. It was January. It was his State of the Union, and I think he went ahead and took it to the State of the Union because Gerald Ford has an interesting perspective of being the only person ever to serve as president. And vice president, both, and never be elected to those offices. He was a member of the House of Representatives when Spiro Agnew resigned from the vice president. He was appointed by Richard Nixon to become vice president after Richard Nixon resigned. He taking again through the Twenty-fifth Amendment became president of the United States. So he serves as the only person to have ever served as president of this country without actually being elected. We've had some who have ascended to those roles, but if they actually served, if they serve later, they were actually president, but this was one in which he was actually appointed to the vice president's role, not elected to that vice president's role. So in moving up, it makes it makes an interesting anomaly in history. But it also sort of fits one Gerald Ford. If you look into his background, you look into where he came from. He's a midwesterner, raised in mission, Grand Rapids, went to school at the University of Michigan, played football there was a star football player. In fact, one two national titles there undefeated football teams at the University of Michigan after that went to Yale law school and then served in the United States Navy during World War II came out and began his service in the United States House where he served over 25 years before he was picked to be vice president and president. And looking at this, he also served an interestingly enough on the Warren commission. The Warren commission was the commission was put forth by Lyndon Johnson at the time to look into president Kennedy's assassination. And he also served in that role in looking into that, but also later in the House representative served as a minority leader for the Republicans in the United States House for about 9 years before he became vice president. So an interesting background and a lot of people know though from my generation and others, they know Gerald Ford to be sort of an anomaly. He was an interesting role in our time in our history, and I think we'll go down in history as that president who was bridging the gap. He bridged the gap between Richard Nixon and the problems of Watergate and the scandals, the, just the Vietnam War ending, there's so many things that were going on at the end of the Nixon administration that would influence his administration and also the bridge between what would then be the Carter administration. He was really putting a no win situation. He spent over 30 months roughly as president. And from the perspective of how he came in, how he had to deal with the issues that were confronting him. His job, frankly, became more of a caretaker role than anything else. The country was in an economic situation which calls high inflation, high interest rates. We had an oil, we were coming off of the oil embargo, 73, 74. This is all that was in his, you know, not only foreign policy makes, but also his domestic policy mix as well. So this is someone that it's interesting to see the words and what he chose on his final State of the Union as he called it to the Congress to emphasize as he was moving forward in his life, but also in the country's life in this transition period. So let's start as we go. And I think one of the interesting things that was for me that he started with was a focus on 1776 and 19 76. The 200 year anniversary of our country. The country went through an enormous birthday party if you would, and 1976, it was the 200th anniversary of our country. There was a lot of celebrations going on. And what was interesting is he started his conversation in this speech saying that he is the first real study of the union in the first presidential address of this stature of the next hundred years in our future. The next for 200 now he's looking at the next hundred years. And I think that was a good place for him to start. He was coming out of a time in which our country at the mid 1970s, early 1970s, was probably as close to an existential crisis that we had seen in the 200 years of our country, coming off of Richard Nixon, who used the political office of president and the powers of the federal government to do things in an election and to against enemies that Richard Nixon had. That we had really not seen before at this level. And it became public caused a very much of a crisis in government that I would argue that stands till today that we still see the hangover if you would of Watergate in many of the discussions and many of the attitudes that Americans have about government. Some rightfully so, some that have been perpetrated about what they saw during the Watergate crisis in which you had officials acting in their own interest, not the interest of America. You had interest of politicians such as Nixon, who used the tools of government to actually expand their power. Why is that important? Well, it's exactly what we're seeing in the last ten years that there's a continuation. It seems that this process. We saw the politicization of the Department of Justice under the Obama administration that ended up in a investigation on a presidential candidate Donald Trump during his campaign with Hillary Clinton and this turned into what we now know is the Russia hoax, the involvement of Donald Trump being accused of being in cahoots with the Russians. The sham impeachment. I mean, they're just the Mueller investigation. But all of it tied back to the fact if you look in the last few years, the same echoes of problems that we saw in Watergate actually began to show themselves in the determination with the intelligence community and the Department of Justice, FBI,.

Will Biden Nominate Kamala Harris to SCOTUS?

"To. Let me ask you the issue of Kamala Harris being floated as a potential nominee for the Supreme Court. She is a floater. She is definitely a floater to replace breyer, she really is somebody that anybody who knows what's going on behind the scenes knows that the Biden camp despises the Harris camp and vice versa. They're like each other. And they're both right. And they both have a lot of good points in their hatred. It's proof you can sleep your way to the middle and just sort of float to the top of the bowl. Well, of course, I have no idea what you're referring to, but let me say you say this. It is genuinely likely that Biden will see this as an opportunity to get her out of the way by promoting her to the Supreme Court because she's already a known figure. And then installing as his vice president, you know, a Gerald Ford type, a governor Rockefeller type. Somebody behind maybe a nurse or, you know, maybe a Doctor Who specializes in vegetative states, maybe Fauci. I think the one they want somebody better at preserving human life.

The Omicron Non-Emergency

"The non emergency, according to The Wall Street Journal. The World Health Organization obviously is saying that the new variant poses a high new risk. And that beyond the large mutations in its spike protein, that we don't know that if this has increased transmissibility or could make vaccine antibodies less effective. South African doctors say that the cases are milder and cause different symptoms noticeably fatigue. Many are young people who might be expected to have milder symptoms. But breakthrough infections have also been mild. I don't think it will blow over. But I think it will be a mild disease hopefully. Despite all of this, European countries are now entertaining another round of lockdowns. Because they worried that socialized healthcare systems could get overwhelmed. This is The Wall Street Journal I'm reading from. 92% of adults in America have COVID antibodies. 92%. As of September from vaccines or prior infection. That means only 8% of America hasn't yet been exposed to the virus. Governor Cathy hoka, who of course is trying to win another term, she hasn't even won one term. Let's just say, when a term as governor, she's the accidental governor, she's like Gerald Ford. She she thinks that you become governor of New York by sewing fear and having total shutdowns and lockdowns, somehow that is something that state of New York wants.

"Before we get our news update. We have a quick correction from our reagan episode. I said that reagan was the first president to survive an assassination attempt and we got a million messages including one from gerald ford's granddaughter. Y'all about fell out would share. That was not the case. Okay so at first. I thought that i got it wrong. Because he was the first one physically injured to survive an attempt. Because there's been lots of attempts like andrew. Let's be firing guns at don't hit and that's what happened with gerald ford like back to back to and this is the craziest part to me. I fell down and listen. I fell down a internet whole about this assassination thing. I went on an assassination vacation. The two people who attempted to assassinate gerald ford were women. Did you look this up to no. But i am going to have to look it up now. I'm seeing all your notes here. And i'm like i need to know more about this. Yeah one of them was a follower of charles manson. She went by the nickname. Squeaky if that doesn't get you on wikipedia. I don't know what will but so. These two women tried to assassinate gerald ford in september of nineteen. Seventy five one gun didn't go off when somebody kinda like hit her hands. I think basically. And so i thought okay. Well maybe we need a word for assassination attempt. That didn't actually physically injure the person but teddy roosevelt got shot. He only was saved by the very thick bundle of papers. He was easy for a speech that the bullet had to get through. I but it did lodge in his chest and it was there until he died so i guess it was teddy roosevelt. Then reagan who like survived attempts. That physically injured them creating a new category here. There is nothing so perspective inducing as thinking about past assassinations assassination attempts. Whenever i feel like we live in the worst of times everything is the hardest. Everything is on fire. I remember no we do. Not things are difficult they have always been so and when people are running around trying to shoot the president that is a whole new category of outrageous.

Which is a bunch of African American Republicans who tell the real history of the Democratic Party, which I've laid out chapter and verse a little or we get lectured. I'm glad you had venom in your voice. You talk to Carl. Because he deserves it because he takes potshots at people like myself or Brady or JD if we're off the air, and then he calls, so turnabout is fair play, pal. And if you claim to be a psychologist, psychiatrist, the only exposure you had to the psychiatric community with as a patient in a straitjacket and in a pad itself, By the way, I got three college degrees, unlike Joe Biden, and they're all in engineering there anyone you want to play jeopardy. Carl on any subject under the sun, including psychology. I'll take you on anytime. Anyplace anywhere and I'll do with my hand is hands tied behind my back and blindfolded because I'm also completely blind, okay? There you go, James. So well said, and and so needed. Thank you and appreciate your service that you gave to the country for five years. I appreciate that brother. And Yeah, you just laid it out everything you said you can't argue. You can't even try to argue, because it's fact. With the left doesn't like to operate. On fact, James. They operate on emotion and made up logic. That's what it is. You know what? And I know it.

It is time for our featured audio clip this hour. This is something that we do it five minutes past every hour on our program. Every single morning we bring you an audio clip that you may not have heard or may be seen on a local newscast and network newscast, giving you a little bit different perspective on the day's events. Right now we're gonna talk a little bit about the impeachment. There were 10 Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump in the House of Representatives. At least one Republican congressman who voted to impeach President Trump. Maybe having a bit of buyer's remorse this morning. Congressman Peter Mayer. He's a freshman Republican from Michigan, admitted on ABC is this week that he may have ended his political career with that vote. It is our featured audio clip in our Monday morning wrap of the Sunday morning talk shows. Are you concerned? You ended your career with that vote? I may very well have, but I think it's also important that we have elected leaders who are not thinking solely bullets in their individual. Self interest, not what is going to be politically expedient, but what we actually need for the country. It's not lost on me that I hold the seat that Gerald Ford held from 1948 to 1973. He committed a courageous act when he parted Richard Nixon, but it ended his political career going forward. You know, I think that is the obviously don't want to follow in the footsteps in terms of the next election. Interesting that the new congressman Peter Mayer, from Michigan invokes the name of Gerald Ford, who, very famously or infamously pardoned Richard Nixon. And says this might be the end of my career. You just wonder if some of them got caught up in the heat of the moment last week cast their ballot. They saw no evidence. There was no testimony. There were no hearings. And this was rammed through and now they're going back to their district and talking to their base, And those constituents, in some cases are not happy with them, right Voting against the president. So he's not the only one. I saw a couple of others who are having some second thoughts about casting that vote Enter on the Republican side, I might add. Yes. Oh now Kristina and moves forward to the Senate and the debates going to be and we'll play more clips during our future. Our clips throughout the morning. Because this was a hot topic on the Monday morning talk shows. What happens in the United States Senate? Is it constitutional to even have a new Senate vote on an out of a president who's already out of office? In terms of impeachment number one right And should they be doing this? Well, I mean there. There's some motivation here to try to keep President Trump from running ever again on. That would be some of the motivation that Democrats have behind pursuing impeachment. As a zwei move forward with the Joe Biden administration. Others would just like to leave it and move on and forget that chapter and move on with your Biden. So this goes, this goes right to the heart of exactly what you're talking about, because there are those who were saying Democrats gonna go forward with this just so that Trump can't run again. 2024 Willie Brown comes out this morning. In the San Francisco colonel. Interesting read has written opinion piece saying this is the LAPD impeachment of Donald Trump a hearing in the Senate. The last thing that Joe Biden administration needs well, it definitely will be a distraction in the early days is as he tries to implement and he's got an ambitious Schedule of things he wants to do in the 1st 100 days, not to mention that he's got a cabin he wants to get approved by Congress. I mean, he wants to get his people in place. Well, that would be interesting to see if it's seen as a distraction or seen as something the country has to do, Right. All right, let's get you caught up in your national story from ABC News I'm daring are holding her getting 100 Million Americans vaccinated against Covert 19 would be an ambitious goal with any.

He's not the first person of the year to be tasked with the future of america. Almost every u s president since the franchise began in nineteen twenty. Eight has been named person of the year at least once excluding calvin coolidge. Herbert hoover and gerald ford but biden is likely the first in a generation to inherit such a crescendo of course trophies. A worsening pandemic that's brought a staggering loss of life widespread unemployment and an economic crisis a global climate crisis a reckoning over the continued pervasiveness of systemic racism and growing misinformation blurring fact and fiction during an interview with time editor in chief and ceo. Edward felsen thal at queens theatre in wilmington delaware. The president-elect discussed his partnership with harris the coming covid nineteen vaccine rollout. His thoughts on pardons and more here are excerpts. From biden's interview edited for clarity on restoring america's middle class if my plan is able to be implemented whole plan. I think it's going to go down as one of the most progressive administrations in american history. We've lost the idea that when ordinary people do well. Everybody does better. It's important that we focus on the things that provide opportunity pardoning donald trump. my justice department will make decisions based on the facts there. The people's lawyers. They're not my lawyers. I'm never going to pick up the phone. And say pardon so. And so or go out and prosecute so. And so. But i lived through gerald ford's pardoning of richard nixon. I think that the law and the circumstance should take its effect. I'm not suggesting. Trumpy prosecuted. Or not. But i would not be engaged in that prematurely. How the pandemic has changed him and us. What's been reinforced is my absolute commitment. That everyone is entitled to health care. It's not about whether or not it's a privilege it's a right. We're the only country in the world that has come out of every crisis stronger than we went into the crisis. I predict we will come out of this crisis stronger than when we went in finding vaccine. Hesitancy the words of a president matter. Whether they're good. Presidents are bad. They matter i joined the three presidents who said they would be publicly vaccinated because i think people will realize that we have to reinstate confidence that science is real if someone with the reputation of anthony fauci and the leading scientists of the country said this vaccine works they should take choosing kamala harris. She is straight as an arrow. She is really really bright. She is tough but yet she has a heart. That understands what it's like to be on the other side of prejudice. She also was an immigrant's daughter who was raised in a strange way like i was. We were taught that we could be anything. Don't give up just move. Keep pushing.

Come on in here this morning, 888910515. Joining us now builds him for our correspondent following what's happening with the campaign. And also these polling numbers, Bill. Good morning. Welcome in a J. T. Good morning. It is coming, whether we want it to or not. I I am so ready for this. I mean, we're talking about it yesterday with some friends. We're out doing the Yunos run around town a little bit, get some to eat into little shopping and taking a look at stuff and everybody's talking about it. It's like Either They can't stand it and they wanted over now or they don't want to talk about it completely there Burnout on it completely, or they're fired up like crazy. I think the majority of folks are going to get out and vote and there's probably gonna be a long waiting lines are although a lot of people have already voted so As we see the surgeon, the absentee ballots and people already voting across our country. It's changing the look of the polling numbers a bit. It's this is interesting because these polling numbers have changed. It is not unusual to have races tighten up in advance of an election and it is just it's very difficult to defeat an incumbent, and I think that's part of the reason too that Ah, you know, these polling organizations realize that it's a difficult thing to do. So ah, these have tightened up a CZ. We move closer to the election. But I started thinking J T on especially after 2016. How much can we rely on any of these poles and look back in history a little bit And things have really changed because traditionally, these national polls that we have seen going back to the thirties really have been very accurate in predicting the winner of a presidential race. Now there have been a couple of big swings and misses like 1948 and Thomas Dewey and Harry Truman. Where Ah Thomas Dewey was up on Truman by five points going into the election ended up losing, of course, 1976 when the polls had Gerald Ford up on Jimmy Carter and Jimmy Carter ended up winning and then Ah, twice Now, in the last 20 years, we've seen cases where Ah person has not won the popular vote but still won the election. Through the electoral college. And as a result of this, these polling organizations of which they're just dozens and dozens out there. J T have been kind of launching a public relations campaign to say Hey, yeah, we know we messed up in 2016. We didn't get it right. But we changed the way we do things, And they say that this election is easier to predict. Then the one in 2016. So they've been trying to convince everybody that they're polling numbers are right. But things are getting tighter and tighter, even though most of the national polls have Joe Biden with a lead of anywhere of 6 to 12 points. Nate. I don't believe it. I don't believe it. I mean, you look at this. You're familiar with the helmet nor path model where he predicts the winner based on how people vote during primaries while he's got Donald Trump with 362 the electoral votes and abide with 176. You need 270 to win and He has got Trump. I mean, literally a landslide here, and if you base it, I don't know if you saw the crowds at the rallies, Of course, surely when President Trump has so many people show up, I mean, 50,000 people recently. You know, Of course, the Democrats will spend that area's again causing more deaths, letting these people come together like that. I know what these people want to come support this president. They don't have you know anybody holding a gun to their head to tell him to show up for these rallies? People are fired up for this president. And when you compare the turnouts for the Biden rallies or bus tours or whatever you want to call his get is parking lot Citians compared to the president's turnouts. I mean, it's it's night and day to be so if that's what's going to happen at the polls. You know, then I think this is gonna be a no brainer for the president. Yeah, well, And like I say this is and you know, even though those polls show that Joe Biden is ahead of the majority of them, J t you can't you can't help but think back to this is exactly where President Trump was four years ago. And you can't help but believe that this is another one that he may just pull out and ah and win reelection. Look based on 20. Yeah. Based on 2016 Bill, we got him right where we want.

You are a coach for Jimmy Carter Back in the 1976 debate against incumbent Gerald Ford. You've seen many debates. You've been part of them. Was this a debate last night or a disaster or both? Well, you're right about that. I've been watching these debates since 1960 participating in some, and the first is a citizen. And now I'm back to being a citizen. So six years of experience, so I thought last night was sort of Ah, Forgive me for tipping my hat here, but as a citizen, I thought it was a gentleman versus the bully. San And most important, I was very disappointed in my own friend Chris Wallace, the moderator, who seemed somehow to not be able to keep control of the debate. But that begs this question, though. You know when you're when you're talking about two. I mean, these are two brawlers. Let's face it both Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Are really good street fighting kind of guys in a political fashion. How is any moderator going to keep control over those two particular men? Well, that's their job. The moderator's job keep control. And as I said last night, I thought you had the since I've been watching it for 60 years. I thought you had a bully versus a gentleman. But I am back to being a citizen now so I can understand why President Trump took the tone and the demeanor he did, and I thought that Biden I had a couple of chances. Ah, throw a punch or two, but he didn't do that. He stayed back. And in that regard, I think you could say that President Trump helped his base. Particularly when he talked about white supremacists. And when he was didn't help us with our fire fires here in California, But Ah Ah, you're right. Ah, Donna, it would be a tough job for any moderate So let's talk about and you said Trump did well for his base. Let's talk about whether this particular debate would change anybody's mind at this point. If you're voting if you're a Biden guy, or if you're a trump guy, did any of what you heard last night matter or change your mind? Oh, no, not if you'd already made up your mind. Although there does we do have this concert containing concern about the fair election, which President Trump keeps trying to sew. But apart from that, you know, the president did tell his white supremacist voters to stand by and he didn't help is on the On the fires. So, ah, Susan out here in California.

"The Senate has voted and mid mid trade us but the good news is to quote then president Gerald Ford my fellow Americans our long national nightmare is over the president has been acquitted on both articles the trial is over article one the abuse of power charges was really the whistle blower who never came forward Eric Charlie a mellow the whole thing that Adam Schiff arranges hole she M. concoction this was a steel dossier all over again this was a molar investigation all over again they concocted this whole thing and drag this whole thing out that was article one and while the split was fifty three Republican forty seven Democrat the vote was forty eight guilty fifty two not guilty because met Romney apparently calling on his Mormon beliefs and his deeply held conscience became the first United States senator in history to vote against a president in his own party in an impeachment trial here is the vote as read by Chief Justice John Roberts question is on the first article of impeachment senators how say you is the respondent Donald John trump guilty or not guilty a roll call vote is required the clerk will call the roll Mr Romney guilty this article of impeachment forty eight senators have pronounced Donald John trump president of the United States guilty as charged fifty two senators have pronounced him not guilty as charged two thirds of the senators present not having pronounced him guilty the Senate a judges that the respondent Donald John trump president of the United States is not guilty as charged in the first article of impeachment so the way the game is played they first put together the article of of the first article abuse of power so there's no specific crime you see just that he generally abused his power okay and the second article was it he won't come play with us he won't allow us to charge him he won't come over here and confess to us the charges obstruction of Congress he's a co equal branch of the government but at least Romney typical Ronnie he votes guilty on the first article and not guilty on the second one so even that he has to split the little Matt Paradis on this article of impeachment forty seven senators have pronounced Donald John trump president of the United States guilty as charged fifty three senators have pronounced him not guilty as charged two thirds of the senators present not having pronounced him guilty the Senate a judge's that respondent Donald John trump president of the United States is not guilty as charged in the second article of impeachment the presiding officer directs judgment to be entered in accordance with the judgment of the Senate as follows the Senate having tried Donald John trump president of the United States upon two articles of impeachment exhibited against him by the house of representatives and two thirds of the senators present not having found him guilty of the charges contained therein it is therefore ordered and a judge that the said Donald John trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles so Matt Romney on the first charge kept this from being completely partisan all the way across the board it was a partisan articles of impeachment in a bipartisan acquittal now bipartisan for the guilty on the first charge but that's Mitt Romney that's why this guy lost in two thousand twelve because people don't trust him because deep down he core aids the approval of the media the day before he goes to the Atlantic the liberal magazine and he spoke to McKay Coppens now some of you will remember the name McKay Coppens that's the columnist who stoked the rumors about Sarah Palin's son trig who has down syndrome actually being her daughter's side turns out that wasn't true but what a nasty vile rumor he also jumped on the bandwagon blaming Pailin for Gabby Giffords getting shot by that whack job about it back in two thousand eleven oh yeah he was in on that he's a real nice guy the kind of guy Mitt Romney would trust Romney says he believes history will vindicate his choice and then he quoted Mormon scripture and then he quoted a children's song choose the right when a choice is laid before you in the right the holy spirit guides and it's light is forever shining or you went in the right your heart confides currently that's part of Mormon scripture and you know what I want to say to that I better not then he tells McKay Coppens that the right choice for him was to vote for impeachment on the first article and then and then Coppens closes out in your righteousness eight years ago Mitt Romney was the leader of the Republican Party its nominee for president today he has become accustomed to a kind of political loneliness Romney famously opposed trump's candidacy in two thousand sixteen and while the rest of his party has fallen in line since then he has remained stubbornly independent this is how the Democrats win with the majority of with a minority of voters they have these John McCain Mitt Romney Republicans look at the two Republican presidential candidates prior to trump McCain and then Romney they don't like you and they said so they don't like the tea party and they said so they don't believe in the idea that the blue collar working man should have any input in how this country is governed they believe that the government is for them to run because they know better than you and they can't cozy up to the Democrats and the media fast enough that's who these people are rami didn't turn on us Romney is the same guy he's always been that's why I despised him in two thousand twelve that's why I despised him as the governor of Massachusetts that's why he lost to Obama am I had the lowest approval ratings for a sitting president running for reelection and yet he one because Republicans didn't want Mitt Romney the same Mitt Romney that candy Crowley lied about the same Mitt Romney they called a dog abuser and said he had a dog on the top same Mitt Romney they said that he had binders full of women and he was a horrible person this is two thirds of the senators present not having pronounced him guilty the Senate a judges that the respondent Donald John trump president of the United States is not guilty as charged in the first article of impeachment Michael.

"This is happening today in America. with the presidential election coming up next year Donald Trump will be trying extremely hard not to be calm a one term president. throughout history twelve presidents have been denied a second term by voters but the rejection of a sitting president is somewhat rare in modern times. since World War one just for chief executives have served only one term in the White House. Herbert Hoover lost two of Franklin Roosevelt because of the economy the thirty first president of the United States was widely criticized for his botched handling of the Great Depression Hoover blame congressional gridlock for the country's political paralysis during the economic disaster but he provided weak leadership generally speaking next Gerald Ford a man many insiders say never even wanted to be president Ford's campaign was doomed from the start by a series of issues including us pardon of Richard Nixon a depressed economy and oil shortages Joe Ford would go on to lose the White House to another one term president that would be Jimmy Carter who served in the White House between nineteen seventy seven and eighty one the thirty ninth president was ridiculed by the public for failing to secure the release of American hostages in Iran after the Islamic revolution there. the story dominated headlines for fourteen months of his time in the White House the Iranians released the hostages the same day Jimmy Carter left office. President Bush the elder lost to Bill Clinton. many blame Ross Perot for that upset political science is still use the nineteen ninety two election to study the impact of third party candidates Perot won nineteen percent of the vote that's nearly twenty million ballots many of which would have gone to bush who did alienate some voters by raising taxes so what does this all mean for president trump. well right now it's all about the economy US voters routinely list their personal finances is the biggest factor in picking a president Democrats will surely downplay trumps economic success but Americans usually trust what they see in their wallets. second the public does get tired of controversy. Jimmy Carter's hostage crisis and Gerald Ford's relationship with Richard Nixon tainted both campaigns. I had some Americans are ignorant your Riley update.
