Trump to attend GOP's spring donor retreat
"Trump is scheduled to speak at the cpac conference on sunday while americans go about living their lives. Political reports trump is expected to attend the rnc upcoming spring donor. Retreat in april quote. The rnc's donor. Retreats are a prime stop for future presidential candidates who use the events to establish relationships with wait for it. Major contributors Back with us tonight. Abc veteran washington journalists and associate editor and columnist over a real clear politics and matthew. Dowd he is the founder of country over party. We should point out. He is a texan. Who has a new appreciation for a hot shower. Since the cold dark outage of late and in the past matthew was chief strategist for the bush. Cheney presidential effort Back in oh four Welcome to you both. Ab you right with your usual candor and clarity quote just six weeks. After a deadly insurrection against the us government republicans are past their horror and hopping eagerly back on the trump train. The new twenty twenty one ticket price. They must buy into his big lie. That brings us to the question a. b. if trump is the banner under which they all must run under which they all must try to raise money he lost. How can that be a winning strategy. Whatever he says goes so you saw that. Nothing made it more clear than the house. Gop whip steve scalise going on tv. The sunday after his visit mar-a-lago where apparently they just talked about their families and how chill and relaxed. The president has been in his post presidency period at his resort and he just could not bring himself to say that this was a free and fair election. He said yes. Legitimately biden one when he was pressed by jonathan karl of abc news because elector said that on december fourteenth basically. He said a lot of sing. Swing states just didn't follow their own state laws and a lot of people are very concerned so what you do is instead of spreading the big lie. You never defy trump. You never disavow it and you never spell it you sit and you never discuss. How pernicious and dangerous. It is liz cheney and adam her and others have you just sort of try to circle around it because quote your constituents buy into it. And that's what's gonna keep you in trump's orbit if you want to keep your job in twenty twenty two. Matt voters have a funny way of kind of market testing ideas on their own and figuring out what. And what's gonna fly. How is this gonna fly especially in republican tightly contested suburban races two years from now. Well i think it does well in republican primaries. So i think that's the issue and that's the real problem for the republicans right now. They know that. Donald trump tests eighty eighty five percent popularity among the voters at will participate in republican primaries even in republican primaries in purple states or in suburban districts. That are swing districts. The problem is every time they venture into capturing that republican primary voth it more and more offense the people in the general election so it gets okay in a red state or deep red district to do that but when you start to try to win in suburban areas around houston suburban areas around dallas suburban areas in michigan suburban areas in california. It becomes exceedingly problematic. An i think that's the problem there in though it doesn't seem like they're in any way trying to confront that general election problem that they just keep pushing that often it's somehow they think is going to solve itself. It's almost as if they're going through this primary. They did in two thousand fifteen in twenty sixteen where they thought that donald trump problem would salve itself or he would peter out or nobody would deal within or somebody else would handle it and they didn't have to and then what they ended up having donald trump the republican nominee and then donald trump the republican president and now donald trump the republican president. So i do think it's his party. I don't think there's any question anymore that it's donald. The drill pay party is now the trump party and everything that donald trump does from town to what he cares about to. The conspiracy pushes is the republican party.

Democrats to unveil Biden-backed immigration overhaul bill
"Well, Democrats are getting ready to unveil an immigration overhaul that's backed by President Biden, Ky. WC in. Bush talked with CBS News White House correspondent Stephen Portnoy this morning who says the bill's not bipartisan, and whether or not a passes is still up in the air. This package would offer citizenship to millions of people legally in the country first of five year wait for it. Essentially a green card and then citizenship. Three years after that, the dreamers who came here as Children would automatically get green cards so with farm workers, people here under temporary protected status due to disasters in their homelands. And that is the proposals being made on behalf of the president today by Democrats in the House and Senate, But it doesn't appear to include anything in the way of border security, which is why it's likely not to garner bipartisan support. That said the White House has signaled that it is open to unlike past efforts, which have failed with comprehensive immigration reform, will you tie legal status or what? Critics deride his amnesty to border security? In this case, it looks like the Biden administration is open to one off packages. Maybe something that just addresses the dreamers or maybe something that just addresses people here on expired visas or something along those lines, and they might want to chip away at it. But there's so much that the Biden administration's hoping Congress takes on now, and we have learned this week that the Biden administration doesn't really expect Congress to do much other than at least at first. The rescue plan that is before the congress Now that is, of course, the administration's top priority the $1.9 trillion package, and it's only after it tackles that and send it to the president's desk that the White House really expects Congress to do anything else
The Mystery Of The Pennhurst Asylum
"The eastern pennsylvania institution for the feeble minded and epileptic later called pinehurst asylum was originally established as a facility for the disabled opened in nineteen o eight. The property contained in array of buildings all scattered around large tracts of farmland in chester county. Thirty miles outside of philadelphia though it might sound like it was designed for care and comfort. The reality was anything. But the institute was first created to house intellectually and developmentally disabled people alongside those who suffered from epilepsy but this strategy was unwise as such patients had very different needs. What's worse is that. Many of the institutions goals were based on the nineteenth century eugenics movement proponents of the movement believed that the human gene pool should be protected and anyone deemed. Genetically inferior. Should be prevented from reproducing by forced sterilization or segregation from the rest of society. For this reason. People with certain kinds of disabilities whose families could not care for them were sent to penn hearst. Most of them came as infants or children. Girls and boys are separated into different buildings. So there wouldn't be any sexual mixing in the decades since the institution closed a slew of modern day rumors claim that penn hurst carried out forced sterilizations on its patients. But while sterilization did occur at similar institutions in the united states. There was actually no record of it at pinehurst. Rumors of the institute's horrific procedures ran rampant. The last perhaps this is because the hospital was shrouded in an era of mystery it operated almost completely independently of the outside world. It had its own power plant and produced its own. Food and supplies were brought in by a special rail. Line pen hurts was designed so that no one from the outside could get in but more importantly so that no one on the inside could ever get out.

Transformations: Three 'Coming Outs' with Max Appenroth
"It could be interesting to tell you about my life with three coming out. That i had so far his like offended. People look at me when i tell them like. Yeah what three coming out like. What's going on with you. And i like to tell the story about my mom and my wedding day like Married to a wonderful man and on my wedding day my mom said to one of my friends like there's nothing that can shock her anymore because like after having dealt with three coming out of her child there is nothing you could throw her off the wrecks anymore than i think i would just like to start a little bit chronologically because like when i was thirteen i came out as lesbian like to delegate about myself i was female assigned at birth and lifts for twenty something years an identity as a woman or at least i thought i was that because when i was younger being seen as female like it didn't work for me to didn't work with boys like i was interested in them played with them but like in everything else goes beyond players. I that's something that's like something something's wrong. Something's off. And i thought okay. If i'm not into poison i must be a lesbian. And they. This is what. I what i told my parents when i was thirteen. And my mom first reaction was a bit weird like she wanted to sue my first girlfriend because she was like nineteen. Which was like this is like fooling fooling around with a minor loud. I was it was it was a reaction then of course like distinctive like i would never have grandchildren but anyway she overcame that and accepted me and they accepted me for. I am because my dad. He was really cool. It was like yeah i understand. Why like women so sorry so it was actually that was. That was what i thought. Who i am and i have wonderful relationships with women in my teens and my early early twenties and but then there was something that can all along the way like time that i was dead. I felt like i was searching for something if restless all the time and i was always really hyperactive and just like not knowing what was going on because of couldn't sell it couldn't there was something there was something more and i remembered that when i was eighteen like i went to this women's festival and there was a drag king workshop in it was like okay. What's never heard of his. Like i'm just gonna go up just going to try it out and see what's going to happen. There was like these to renew gorgeous drag kings. That helped other people for the first time you know to to dress up like was always i was always like this bush type which dyke person and i was already looking a bit more what people stereotypically describe as masculine like short hair in jeans and like you know the just a typical typical butch dyke And so they helped as you know like to to put a beard on your phase night to to find your chest to get a flat chest with a Just bandages trying to to make us laugh. As possible and stuff like that. And i back then. I remember the moment when i walked into the bathroom and look at myself in the mirror just in complete shock that i was so shocked in that moment that i just immediately my immediate response was like washing everything off like washing washington beard of taking the advantages off because i was like so overwhelmed with a feeling in that in that particular moment from that moment on i really tried hard to pass as like a feminine appearing woman like i bought bras extended. I never will be four. Because i felt like i got something. I need to counter in a way and obviously that failed because back then i was still living in the southern part of germany. Like if people haven't heard like. I'm not a native english speaker. I live in germany at the moment based in berlin. When i finished school i moved to berlin immediately and started my life here and obviously because it's much more diverse city than than where i came from and where he grew up like a rapid the countryside in a very small town and all of sudden it was like all these possibilities like all these people that i met in amongst them was also trans guy and i was like i i was witted out by this idea but then eventually you know there was there was a time. I was in my early twenties when i quit smoking. And because of quitting smoking also changed my diet. Radically lost twenty kilos in like six months. Something like that night was a pretty big person. And because of that often i comb. My body has changed. My physique has changed. I got very slim and definitely less curves my boobs small and everything and i felt like there was a a strong change in my body happening. What also happened was that i dreamt multiple times that my friends were calling me. Max like in my dreams. My friends were calling me maximum. I woke up in the mornings. I was like what the fuck is going on like. What what what is happening. Like what is what is this thing you know and that was for me. Some sort of like a women comes from now. There was a day in june two thousand nine. That was at party like in the middle of the dance. Larger started crying in the fairmont. Came up to what what is going on. What's happening with what's wrong with you. Why you crying. Did someone do something that to just like. I'm i'm not a woman in. This was the only thing that i that i brought out. And then she was like what do you mean. Like what are you and i'm like i don't know i just know i'm not a woman you know. And i started on the birth birth night of macs more or less and for me back then. It was really wade today. Describe myself as masculine. Someone masculine spectrum. But i'm not a man. This is something that is a concept that does that. i don't understand. I don't know who men are like this concept in society that would which also comes with a lot of stereotypes in a lot of expectations and things how people should be. I might look like someone that people would describe as a man like. I have masculine the parents i can. I'm having a beer. Showed his body type. That stereotypically fits with people describe as man but like it doesn't it's not my

Yes jim this was an exceptional quarter for mattel without best performance in years with strong consumer demand and another milestone near for the company for the second quarter in a row which have double digit sales growth without grace. The industry in gain share on a global basis but are results excited expectation on many levels with the highest fourth quarter growth in fifteen years as you said with a significant increase in profitability with a full year operating income. That was two and a half times higher than than last year. But this is not just about the quarter or the year. It's about a multi year strategy that is tracking very well which puts us on in a strong position to continue to increase profitability and etc growth. In two thousand twenty one and beyond what i liked about it but these were all fantastic numbers but you told me one day jim this company which has terrible cash flow can make fortunes on everything that it does put out so when barbie has a plus eighteen percent quarter number one toy property globally in twenty twenty doll- but boy you're making a lot more money off each barbie even though they're more interesting fascinating diverse inclusive than any of the line.

Why CMOs Get Fired: Results Do Not Equal No Results Plus An Excuse
"Do not equal no results plus an excuse one of things. I love about sales by way of example is sales is pretty binary. Yeah they're make your number you miss your number or exceed your number and in sales if you miss your number couple of quarters in a row two quarters out of four you just gotta start being worried about your job and if you're a ceo. Certainly ceos of public companies. Don't get to miss very many quarters. And even if you're a private company you don't wanna be missing your numbers and so at the end of the quarter. The ceo has to stand up and tell the world and investors. How the company did that quarter and the interesting thing. If you're a public company is wall street doesn't give a shit why you missed the numbers. So if you're not he hitting or beating your numbers every quarter. They don't care. It's like the like a kid that sticks us their fingers in the net. We're not listening. They're just gonna tank your stock and if you're going you're going into the penalty box for a two minute minor and if it was a really big miss it'll be a five minute major. Those are hockey terms. If you're not familiar with hockey and so as a ceo you live and die by the numbers every quarter and as a head of sales chief revenue officer vp assails Whatever whatever whatever title is head of sales That's true too and the reality is that should be true in marketing as well so results do not equal no results plus excuse and i knew that i was getting somewhere in my life in terms of training myself to produce results when i didn't even give a shit about my own excuses so when you can't stand your own excuses for For not producing results. You're probably getting somewhere okay. So now this sort of leads us to the question. Okay so what. What are the marketing results that matter because there's lots of things that marketing do you could say. Oh we build a new website that that that's a result it might matter. It might not matter but it's definitely a result so let's talk about the results that matter i think at the highest level. There's only three things that marketing organizations should be focused on number one design and dominate category. That matters number to drive revenue near term mid and longterm and number three create enduring value as measured by market cap or company valuation. We wanna be creating the most valuable company in a category. That matters okay. So let's just hit those three things again number. One design dominated a category. That matters number to drive. Revenue and number three create enduring value as measured by company value market cap valuation and ultimately our objective is to become the most valuable company in the category. That's how you know you're the category queen now. If you focused on just those three results it can be very clarifying on a number of dimensions. And i'll get to that in a sec. Let's talk about why those three things matter so much number one design dominate category. That matters i think that is the seminal be hag the seminal focus of the entire executive team and frankly company itself and if your company's not focused on that i don't know what you're doing number to drive revenue you know there's a lot of cmo's who get all wrapped around the axle about leads or sales off the website or this or that or the other look creating leads driving revenue in the business. These are not hard things you got to go. Do them the work that the doing of the work is real work. But it's not rocket surgery So if you need to drive revenue you probably need traffic to your website. So go to the traffic store and buy some and get really good at converting traffic into customers. And there's a million marketing podcasts and books and and all sorts of tools and tricks and tips we can do to drive revenue but the bottom line is as marketers. We have to be illu air. Wars and ground wars the high level strategic steph and the ground level revenue tactical stuff in the truth. Is you gotta do both. It's not an either or it's a both and legendary. Cmo's particularly when you start your new job. go to the driving revenue. I if you want to score points internally drive some revenue sit down with your head of sales. You're ceo and say what do we need to do to create massive revenue upside problems in this company and get busy on that if you get overly focused on the strategic particularly early on in your tenures cmo. You're probably in for deep shit so design and dominate a category that matters that's the medical driving revenue if there's no revenue the medical won't matter. We need to put food on the family. As george w bush said so put food on the family legendary. Cmo's drive revenue and then enduring value. This is also the objective of the entire executive team but marketing needs to be focused on it. We want to be the most valuable company over a long period of time in a category that matters and We're the category queen of that Category all right so these things are very clarifying because you can look at any execution any activity any investment Any new hire that you're doing in marketing and ask yourself the question. Does this one design and dominated new category that matters to drive revenue and three create enduring value. And if it doesn't don't do it stop doing it. Just don't fuck do it. now. I've sat in the cmo chair. I know there's a lot of things that are distracting. I think the cmo gets pushed and pulled in ways that some other c. level executives do not and so there's a couple things i'll you to number one. Marketing is not an internal service bureau. This idea that marketing has internal customers. I'll marketings here. Just depart the business You know sales our customer. That's insanity marketing is the business. It doesn't support the business now. Yes marketing does need to work with sales. Es marketing does need to work with engineering and product development and product management and so forth of course and in that context every department needs to work with every other department but if we are at the beck and call of these other departments and they ring the bell and we salivate then. We're going to be in a constant state of stimulus response so be very very careful about allowing yourself to get turned into an internal service bureau. That's one Another one is a lot of marketers. Cmo's even ceo's get very focused on the competition. Let's say the competition announces some cool new thing they do so they re a bunch of money or they launch a new product or whatever it is people get very focused on the competition. They start talking about the competition. You don't want that shit in your head the more you talk about the competition internally or god forbid sternly the worse off. You're going to be now. I'm not saying you should be ignorant about what they're doing. I'm not saying that at all but you don't want them living in your head rent free. You want to live in their head rent free. So don't be overly focused. Be smart. Be savvy be knowledgeable but not overly focused on competition another area. We get distracted. A lot in marketing is typically The cmo and the leaders of the marketing organization get a lot of help. Because everybody's marketing expert. Everybody saw an ad The super bowl. They thought was awesome. And they wanna tell us about it or they see something that someone else is doing in the text or email that thing and they say oh. We should do that. We should do this and we should do that. And so marketing. I think gets a lot more help the. Cfo doesn't get that much saying help. In air quotes right the. Cfo does not get that much help about like how to close the quarter. All right she's in charge. She does it and You know the head of engineering isn't emailing the cfo. Saying this is how she she should closed. Quarters books whereas as the head of marketing we get those emails a lot and so don't forget everybody thinks they're an expert and they're

Donald trump in his first major foreign policy speech as president last week biden laid out his vision. America is back. Diplomacy is back at the center of our foreign policy. As i said to my inaugural address we will repair our alliances engaged with the world once again not to meet yesterday's challenges but today's and tomorrow's we want to get some reaction now to how biden's foreign policy is shaping up in europe and for that we're joined on skype by rosa balfour director of the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace. Welcome rosa hello. And so the president outlined a few immediate changes in his announcement last week including a nuclear arms treaty with russia and the decision to keep. Us troops in germany that former president trump had said would be coming back to the us. So how was his address. And this statement that america is back received in europe. Everything that has happened since by was elected has been well received in europe. There is a nerve well. Ming delight that things have changed in the white house and all of the decisions that were actually taken infest. Few days of the biden administration also welcome in europe however the still awesome europeans are worried about and i think one of them is that while the biden administration really wants to invest on allies and on diplomacy which is music to is of europeans. At the same time there is a bit of a concern that the priorities of the new administration will be very much domestically focused and that that will have implications for trade for climate change prioritize of technology so does raise some potentially troubling issues in the relationship between the us and europe together. We'll let me ask about one of those then rosa because One of the early executive actions that president biden took was signing his So-called american executive order so you mentioned trade as a potential issue. Does europe look at that as a form of protectionism. Well they're all suspicions that bassey's the deep meaning this. This decision actually is and europe would probably be more ambitious than the us in seeking broader trade deal. So i would be cautiously optimistic. That europeans and americans can go through the differences about they all suspicions in europe about the. Us's ultimate goal in terms of trade policy could any concerns about protectionism. Also extend to access to a corona iris vaccine. Because so far the supply has been kind of limited Could there be some tension between the us and europe about who is able to get their hands on these limited supplies. Yes to there's been a bit of a spat with the uk over procurement of crow virus. Vaccines and these could well continue. Having said this there is a general commitments that this coronavirus pandemic really needs to be addressed through global cooperation and european leaders. Have been underlining this and so i think ultimately this line will prevail pasta is modeled because of the pandemic and the desperation attached to wanting to this pandemic and get back onto a normal footing in our lives in the economy. Globally on that idea of getting back to sort of a normal footing. We heard germany's foreign minister. Say that he hopes for a reset of us european relations under the biden administration. I'm wondering rose how easily you think the president can do that. I mean is there any lingering concern in europe to the. Us is just not as reliable as it once was based on the last four years. Yes i'm afraid. The legacy of four years of trump is a pretty dramatic. He's caused a long shadow and they're all doubts. We've seen this before. George w bush was not loved at all in europe and then america bounced back with the bomber with biden. It might take a little longer. But i think all the ingredients all that at the end of the day even if europe and the us do not align on everything they don't align necessarily on their view off the chinese threat or the russian threats but are far closer to each other van out to anyone else. And i'm glad you brought up russia because that was one of the things that the president brought up in his speech last week's asked what he calls the quote determination of russia to damage and disrupt our democracy. He also sort of reaffirmed the united states commitment to nato calling it one of the country's closest friends how is biden's russia policy taking shape it. And what does that mean for. Nato in your view so let's just tremendous because europe has just had a bit of a diplomatic blunder of with russia on the high representative for foreign affairs visits moscow and the outcome visit was very negative but the high representative has also said. There's only so much i can do. If the member states continued to be divided and this is the big issue in europe with respect to russia in particular but also with respect to china's that the member states have quite simply not on the same page. I think biden if he works with his allies in europe and is in listening mode in doing so can help bring europeans closer together. And this affects you. Us corporation russia. But also a nato. On russia we know that nato has still considers russia as the greatest threat. And of course the us decision to wait before. Moving troops of germany is only welcome in germany. Trump's earlier decision to move. The mouse was viewed very negatively in germany. Rosa balfour directs the europe center at the carnegie endowment for international peace rosa. Thanks so much for your time. Thank

"A lot easier when you have something that you could, you know, look at with your own two eyes. Another concrete example is teen jobs. There used to be entire sectors of the economy that were dominated by high schoolers having after school jobs or summer jobs. They would be the people selling you your coffee at the cafe that has basically disappeared. If you look at a chart of teenage workforce participation, it has just cratered. Oh, and those jobs are now filled by grown adults, You know, grown it working working men and women. The problem is that the reason those jobs used to be filled by teenagers is that they're very insecure, and they don't pay a lot of money. So a teenager doesn't need a job that's gonna give him enough to live on. And he doesn't need a job that he can count on having 5 10 years from now. So the fact that adults are filling those jobs now. Is actually a bad sign. It's a symptom that you have grown adults. Filling jobs that are more optimized for somebody who's just a teenager. But the disappearance of teens from the workforce is something that people can see people who've been around for 10 years can remember. That is such a good point. I brought that up to somebody recently and there's other immigration played a big role in this, too, is post 88. H. W. Bush brought in a lot of cheap labor into our country. And so it s so I was born in 93. And so my parents are boomers. And first what can you just tell us the years for boomers just so we get our terms straight. I should have asked you from the beginning. 1945 to 1964. That's a huge span. Some people say 1962. I think, 1964. That's that's right on the edge. Got it? And so the Children of the greatest generation is another way to put it right. The Children of the World War two generation And so my parents are boomers and they born in 93, so I never had a high school job. And it's not because I necessarily didn't want one. However, in our local community if you were in a middle class or upper middle class family, you know what you did over the summer. You did intense athletics or you did something highly specialized, right? And so this is a new phenomenon that started to set in a U. Basketball, travel football 77 football, you know, marching band camps. All these different sorts of things were made almost impossible for you to go get a summer job, Not impossible. But the system is actually designed that on air and on fire for the preservation of our nation,.

The president George H W Bush, obviously was was laid to rest, and there's this narrative going around the funeral and the tributes to the grace and dignity of President George Bush at were was an errant rebuke to Trump who obviously is a rough neck and has this bore style. But I think the true narrative is exactly the opposite of that. I think that the bushes had a very graceful funeral in which they included President Trump, President Trump behaved, very well. And in doing that, isolated the only group of people in the country who cannot put their reach and bile away. Way for even a single day. Namely the media. I mean, the funeral was genuinely remarkable for for what it wasn't. It was remarkable that it was not a partisan hate fest. We all still remember the John McCain funeral. We don't have John McCain funeral. It's still going on. I think they're still guys standing in. The John McCain funeral screaming at President Bush. Remember everybody was Bush wasn't invited. Because Mckee I mean Bush Trump wasn't invited. Because McCain hated Trump and the people who gave the speeches they gave were inherently attacking Trump, and sometimes openly attacking Trump is just an ugly thing. And the funny thing about it wasn't reflected. John McCain's personality was an angry, man. You hated Trump, and he even forsook his main campaign promise of repealing ObamaCare just to get back. I think just to get back at at Trump and stick it to him. But Bush, the elder Bush was a man of grace and decency, and he's raised his family to be like that. And so they reached out. There's no. Matter what you thought of the men's politics. He was just a graceful elegant guy with a lot of goodwill for people, and he the Bush family reached out to the White House and said, look, we want you very much to be included in this..

I took a little break here at the top of the hour and got back down in the chair 'bout ninety seconds before the program beginning in the minute. I walked back in and check TV. I saw Bob Dole being helped up out of his wheelchair. To pay respects to George H W Bush. A casket was where it is in the rotunda. And they had they had steered Bob Dole's wheelchair as close to the rope line as possible and he insisted on standing up. He can't stand. It is impossible. What people don't know is that Bush and dole had an incredible rivalry and at one time in their lives. There was real serious acrimony. It was a political rival. It wasn't personal. Bush was chairman of the ours RNC at some point, and it really in-involved the presidential nomination presidential politics. And despite all that we're hearing about civility and sophistication the rivalry between Bob Dole and George Bush. For primacy and the Republican party when it happened was as deep and filled with rancor as most any rivalry. You've ever heard of it didn't get a lot of notice. However, but for people who who knew it was a serious one. And there was no love lost between the two and for for many years. Dole believed that things that. I use the word entitled, I don't mean it in a in a sense undeserved the things that Bob Dole thought he had worked for and had earned. He routinely saw Bush get. And so I'm self be undercut. And while I say, it's not personal some of it was, but it was all about their lives and politics. It wasn't rivalry born of personal acrimony of having to do with things outside politics. But for Bob Dole to show up. And he demand that is a pick him up. And his head was propping him up by the armpits. It was literally hugging him and holding about Bob Dole could not stand. It was the most incredible thing he insisted on it. He insisted on standing he insisted no matter that he couldn't do it. He demanded even when he began to fall back shaking his head, and and and tell his aid. No. And they they propped him up, and it appeared he was gonna stand on his own for whatever split second time.

"I'll take the awkward audience voodoo almanacs, I did or the the, you know, the many many problematic ways these men try to shift their own narratives to win campaigns. I I will just take the I prefer that if mar only other option which actually don't believe this is our only other option, but if our only other option is. This sort of brutally transactional approach to politics and campaigning. Like, I just I don't want that. If this is the way we over correct? Then I don't think it was a correction at all worth noting, especially as we talk about the privilege and elitism of the Bush family, the George H W Bush served his country, and for someone of the enormous advantage in life that he had to decide to put his life on the line and serve his country. That indicates that dozen dicate to me a selflessness and a belief in something larger than oneself that is. So obviously missing in many of our modern political figures the president probably at the top of that list. And I think it mattered a lot that he had served in the military. I think it mattered a lot in his presidency that he had served a CIA director. I think his experience for his office is why his foreign policy record as a president. If not perfect and it wasn't. And we need to have a long conversation about our history in the Middle East and our motivations there. But he understood what a mission was and how to accomplish it and how to bring people home. He understood the risk on the line when we engage in a mission. You know, he had a different appreciation for our standing in the world. I think because of those experiences that he brought to the White House. Well, and I think that it's not fair to discount the choices he made to build his own fortune..

"If you think about every modern president, we are not going to have someone seek that office who has no ego who would be comfortable with losing. You don't you just don't run for president even in local levels. You have to have some kind of hubris to put yourself out there as a leader. And that's okay. That's not necessarily bad. We've made it bad right anytime, you see behavior that reinforces that we decide. That's terrible McCain trust people because of it. But it's not inherently bad. It is necessary. I am reminded so much of Mitt Romney in reading about George H W Bush because I think here's another person of tremendous means. Who has a genuine desire to serve his country who has a code of ethics for himself and his family that we might not all agree with? But that I hope we can recognize is sincere who is passionate about his family and loving and his relationships and kind hearted and also is capable of policies that many people in the country don't feel good about and who has tried desperately to shift himself enough to get elected. So that he can carry out this public service at times in the most awkward and naked politically ways. And I just feel like we have to find some grace for that. And and we don't need to decide that these people are centers or saints. These are people who wanted to serve their country, and I'm thankful that they did. And I think they got a lot writing a lot wrong in the process. And it just it really. I think Mitt Romney is such a good encapsulation of the George H W Bush struggle, and he's doing it in an even more amped up environment. In a lot of ways, George H W Bush is a bridge president. He's the the bridge between Cold War era and post Cold War era. He's the bridge between what the Republican party was pre Reagan and post Reagan, and there is going to be a lot of complexity around that in and things that he just got wrong. You know, the the the way the handling of the aids crisis is something that he just got wrong. We're going to look back eventually on President Obama. And I think believe that his use of drones is something that he just got wrong because we understand things differently as time passes people have to be allowed to evolve I'm really troubled by. The need to define someone's legacy as either an a or an s that we're doing around George H W Bush because it's neither of those things. And I really really disliked the conversation that defines everyone who dies in contrast to Donald Trump. But give me a moment to do that. I think that you're right. And I think that so much of Donald Trump is a reaction to those naked politically awkward moments. You know, what I never doubt about Mitt Romney or George Bush or John McCain or any of the conservatives who I have a lot of policy problems with who I think acted in particularly problematic ways with regards to economic policy because of their limited views and life experiences and even problematic ethics around economics. All that aside. I do not believe that they approached public service or the decisions they make while in public service in such a nakedly transactional way as Donald Trump. And I don't know if we really want to exchange authenticity, and it. It seems so weird to use the word authenticity with regards to Donald Trump because he lies all the time. But he is he does bring that level of sort of. Naked revelation with regards to the purely transactional motivations. He brings to so many things you're winning or you're losing our country's winning or losing. We're making money from the military over not. I mean, that's something that comes become so apparent as you read fear in particular that that this is his outlook on the world. And like I said, despite my many, many many problems with the economic policies of the sort of George H W Bush, John McCain mitt Romney's, George W Bush's of the world. I do not believe that they approached it in a transactional, I'm making money and winning out of this or forget it, and you know, I'll take that..

"Soft, progressivism is a disaster. Because you have nothing to run on let alone the substantive policy disaster that it is nothing to run on. The left. They are hardcore radical progressives. While we don't go that far. But we go over here. No. Much of the praise. The push forty-one administration is getting for growing government. So if there was less growing government, more growing, the private sector. I feel he could have won Clinton was not a strong candidate Clinton was a serial liar. Even then saying we're in a recession, we run our session, and we weren't in a recession the same media praising George H W Bush today with the cheerleaders. For Bill Clinton. Repeating his lies again. And again because that's what they do repeating his is again, and again, and they often like to compare Hillary Clinton to Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton. Y'all lawyer, hey, professional woman with a career. And then, of course, is Barbara Bush. You know, so they rewrite their own history. But I have a very good memory about these things. In our nation's oldest colleges were founded to teach students to seek truth recognize what is beautiful and hold up. What is good? But the vast majority of them have abandoned their missions locked in the grip of political correctness. They no longer allow free and open discourse. Rejecting the idea of objective truth, they pedal, moral and cultural relativism, thankfully, none of this..

"People who had called him a war monger and said the John McCain was was the guy who was joking about bam. Bam bam. Bam. Bam around right there. They were doing this whole routine while he was alive. He dies. Suddenly the man is just a semblance of time gone by and now it's the same thing with George Hw Bush. He's sensing a are you sensing a sort of pattern here a pattern from the left that because Donald Trump is president every Republican who is not Donald Trump is now seen in a kinder, gentler light. The fact is the reason the press are paying the sort of attention to George Hw Bush not because they've suddenly been struck by the honor. And since the of the man, George Hw Bush. It is also because of the fact that so many folks on the left want to see George H W Bush contrasted unkindly with Donald Trump, and I'm not gonna pretend that in terms of character, Donald Trump, and George W Bush are on the same plane. I I don't think they're on the same plane. I don't think the George H W Bush is the kind of man that Donald Trump is nor I think Donald Trump is the same kind of man as George W Bush. They're very different human beings. George H W Bush was a man who volunteer. To serve in the military. Donald Trump is a man who did not and not only that, you know, used a number of excuses to get out of the draft, George H W Bush is the kind of man who devoted his life to public service. Donald Trump is the kind of man who's devoted his life to you know, to to business and and fame none of that is specifically a rip on Donald Trump. But the contrast is not kind to Donald Trump between George Hw Bush and Trump, which is of course, exactly why the press is making that contrast in the first place don't trust the press. When suddenly they started telling you that a Republican is wonderful because the only Republicans that president that they're left things are wonderful once more out of office or debt. I mean, that's the basic rule of thumb here. And every so often every so often they sort of let the mask slipped Franklin four let the mask slip over at the Atlantic. When he suggested that George H W Bush was not a man of courage. Right. He actually did not h-. Here's how he concluded. His eulogy of George H W Bush, and this is a rare example of honesty from the left on how they. Actually felt about George Hw Bush while he was alive. Here's a Franklin fuller, whose disgusting said over the Atlantic obituaries present George H W Bush is the last of the Republican moderates in reality. Here's an archetypal Representative of the modern party, a man who sense of duty failed him when it came to resisting the rise of racially revanchist libertarian forces. He embodied establishment the wrote a very nice, thank you notes. But good manners are hardly the same as moral, courage. Prudence is sometimes called hard-hearted those who are mourning the passing the oldest dabbling should mourn its many failures to. That's how the left really felt about George H W Bush and don't let them put on the mask of morning in order to pretend that George H W Bush was something different for them than Donald Trump you, and I we can see the differences between George H W Bush Donald Trump, which were many myriads, some favor of Bush in terms of character, some not in favor of Bush, maybe in terms of policy, but for the left, the only reason that they are now donning the mask of morning when it comes to George Hw Bush is that they can attempt to proclaim that Donald Trump is significantly worse by any sort of comparison. Hey in just a second and talk to you. About George H W Bush is final words whenever whenever a man of honor dies. It's it's a loss obviously to the country and the stories of his death are pretty moving talk about that in just one second. But first, let's talk about what's going to hit you when you unwrap a brand new phone this Christmas. Okay. That brand new monthly Bill. That's gonna come along with it..

"Some of these decisions and there aftermath when he did decide to raise taxes because his he wrote it would mean a one term presidency, but it was important to the country. It was the best thing to do for the country. You say that moment might have given birth to a what we're seeing now a modern era of Republican politics. How so absolutely. I it's true that he risked some of his presidency on a budget deal than conservatives hated Newt Gingrich. Who's in the minority whip of the house, literally walks out of the White House meeting furious about what the president had just done and never forgives him. And in nineteen ninety two there, many conservatives who are just unenthused about supporting this president and it fuels people like Newt Gingrich who say you have to remain ideologically, pure, you can never compromise with the opposition. And that's a lot of the mentality that we still have a today. So it was really costly both to him and you. You can argue to American politics. More broadly, even though it was probably the right decision. And what was needed for the health of the economy? What do you think of his passing now, especially with the current presidency and the questions about it and the questions about the language at the current president uses here, you you, you know, we have H W Bush who not just befriended Bill Clinton. Barbara Bush said Bill Clinton found in George H W Bush the father you never had. You know, there was there's love actually and Bush required that requested that President Trump and the first lady be at his service, your thoughts on on that moment, given how Trump was not at you know, Barbara Bush's funeral or John McCain's, it's incredibly fraught moment. Obviously, it's hard really to imagine. What this is all going to look like and sound like, and I think whatever you think of President Bush and his record. Most would agree. He did believe in God. Government at and the institutions of governance. So my guess is in some ways this would fulfil what he would want only in that he would not want to disrespect the presidency at the time of his passing. But I do think there was no love lost for President Bush. And I think a lot of the way that President Trump conducts himself is really anti-theft goal to what Bush believed then Lisa stark relief Julian seltzer professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University Julian thanks, thanks for having me..
