"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason

"Effluent into our digital information system you know on. The second day of the trump administration when Kellyanne, conway announced. That the administration would be putting out alternative facts. We thought that was laughable. But she was telling us how it was going to be. You you can't run. A functioning society if you don't agree on facts. This, this of course has been going on forever. There weren't too many kings or emperors or autographs who bothered to be scrupulously honest. Things were especially bad for example, before the enlightenment. But I grew up in a time where at least society agreed on certain facts. Science is based on evidence. We agreed that the earth was round. And what the force of gravity is and. So we were able to send a man to the. Moon. We we have the west coast burning. Scientists are telling us that because global warming the eastern Arctic ice sheet. is now vulnerable to collapse. And would raise sea level by ten feet around the world if if it melted entirely. But the president said in California this week things are going to get colder because winter is coming in the fires in the West Coast could have been prevented if folks in California and Oregon had just raked the forest. There is so much at stake in this coming. Bait. That's why I do this podcast. I believe that if Vice President Biden listened to my two guests today that it will help his debate performance and that could very well determine the outcome of this election. The second most important election of life time the first being the last election which we blew. And we cannot let that happen again. So let's first go to James Carville. You'll hear we had some technical difficulties in the couple of interruptions during this but I think you'll find those actually entertaining also we begin our conversation talking about James Daughter Maddie. With whom I had a delightful tax back and forth on her dad's phone, and we learned that Mattie is engaged to get married and that she and her fiance had to delay their wedding because of of covert but James Very proudly mentions that Maddie worked for New Orleans, mayor, Mich Landrieu and that she worked on the first draft of a speech and he gave a couple of years ago when he took down a few of the confederate statues there in the city of New Orleans and this was. One of the most powerful and moving speeches I've ever heard and her fiance, the final draft of the speech with the mayor. So before I get to James I, I know he would want me to play just a few short minutes. Of this beautiful important speeches, Mitch Landreau. From may two thousand seventeen there is a difference you see between remembrance. Of History. And the reverence of it. For America New Orleans. It has been a long and winding road marked by tragedy and triumph, but we cannot be afraid of the truth. As President George W. Bush said at the dedication ceremony. For the National Museum of African American History and culture and I quote a great nation does not hide its history it faces its flaws. And it corrects them. So, today I want to speak about why we chose to remove these four monuments to the lost cause of the confederacy, but also how and why this process can move towards healing..
Despite Widespread Pain, Economy Remains Strong Selling Point For Trump
"The president's approval rating remains low. He gets higher marks on the economy than other issues. That's true. Even now with almost thirty million people collecting unemployment benefits as Republicans focus on opportunity at they're convention the economy remains. One of the president's strongest selling points. NPR's Scott horsely reports. It takes a certain amount of Hooda campaign on your economic record when the unemployment rate is in double digits but that's exactly what president trump's been doing. You see the kind of numbers that were putting up there unbelievable best job numbers ever three months more jobs in the last three months before in boasting about the big job gains in May June and July trump conveniently omits the historic job losses. In March and April so far the US has recovered less than half the jobs that disappeared this spring this morning new numbers showing the worst unemployment rate since the Great Depression a staggering number and the worst since the Great Depression worse than anything we have seen since the Great Depression ordinarily a recession like this would be crippling for a president seeking reelection look at what happened to George H W Bush back in Nineteen ninety-two despite his popularity after winning the first Gulf, War Bush's economic approval rating plummeted to just eighteen percent during what was in hindsight a relatively mild recession unemployment that year peaked at seven point eight percent but that was enough to send the president packing. That famous line from Bill, Clinton's adviser James Carville doesn't seem to apply to trump the president's economic approval rating has slipped since the beginning of the year, but it still hovering near fifty percent. So what's going on what's going on is the memory of the economy before the pandemic Republican pollster with air says, many Americans are still judging trump on the economy as it was six months ago before the coronavirus took hold here, it was rolling unemployment was at historic lows. The economy was in great shape before the pandemic killed it presidential approval ratings in general don't swing up or down as much as they used to as Americans have become more locked into rigid partisan attitudes. But Gallup's Lydia Saad also suspects many people are giving trump a pass. When it comes to the economic downturn, they're more concerned about the pandemic NC the economy is just a temporary symptom. SORTA like a hurricane something that's happened is come in it's created all kinds of havoc. But it's going to go away to get back to normal. That's how Mark Schneider sees it. He retired from the Navy after twenty years on nuclear submarines, and now runs an advocacy group for nuclear power. Last week, the S. and P. Five, hundred stock index was heading for a record high Schneider tweeted that the trump economy is unstoppable. The recession he says will soon pass but just steals temporary. Pause Kinda, paused economy as opposed to something mucking the system as he drives around his home of Chesapeake in South Eastern Virginia Schneider is confident that a lot of people feel the same way I? have yet to see a single biden sign in my entire city. I haven't seen a bumper sticker seen anything by him, but there's trump flag flying everywhere. My forecast is, is that trump's gonNA take a single landslide airs the GOP pollster is not so certain despite trump's solid grade on the economy air says, it may not be enough to save the president come November, the corona virus has driven out. Everything else trump's overall approval rating is considerably lower than his economic marks weighed down in part by his handling of the pandemic until there's a solution for the corona virus air says, it's going to be difficult for the economy to come roaring back.

The Democrats already could nominate and duty wanted to respect them cryptovest. But we're sounding shot. Joe Biden to be our nominee. So He's got me. There's not gonNA be a convention of Picot really surprised me because I hope it over time we can but most people are dubious as mine and we'll have a you know how we're going to conduct the election in November was still anybody's guess so lately.

Say Will you always together All of a sudden he is making big strides in Democratic Party He run twenty twenty four. Or what is he doing? I'll have no idea. I bet the twenty twenty but they could definitely going to be twenty four. He governor will be on everybody's list potential strong candidates but I mean he just had this opportunity where he he. He's an impressive guy. He's experience guy. He he understands the media and he build a stage that the president didn't try to fill in the jar now for a long time he didn't and so I mean I think most people will say they have done that. Live admirable job in circumstances. So you feel in your long experience. It's a done deal for Joe Biden and Joe Biden has already announced. He's in a pick a woman Vice presidential candidate. So you feel it whether there's a convention or there's no convention that's the way it's GonNa come down to five thirty eight.

He's GonNa Win Automotive Bernie Sanders. Is he a try to run as a socialist or liberal or something? I gotta understand some about Bernie Sanders. Sanders doesn't care that much about the election. He needs views until the power. That's two thousand sixteen. Election is most important is because they have. This argument is clearly is not going to be the Democratic nominee in. He's hanging around. I don't know I'm sure that's all what they all do for a living and as long as they can get these small donors to keep funding. Them they'll keep sputtering all out there but he doesn't. He's not a Democrat. I am sure he likes Biden. From where put understand show so a pretty big most people like Biden? But they're out doing thing. I don't expect but some of them are going to be very helpful in November. They they think trump will expedite the revolution in the revolution had just timetable not the Democratic Party. They'RE NOT MEMPHIS. We're going to understand that they would like to learn it so it could kill it. Democrats decided there'd be one Bernie. Sanders reminds me of the movie.

"Home Michigan. That's the reality of politics. This is an opportunity that you you just don't see very often in politics. I mean we have a chance to come in. If we'RE SMART WE GOT. We got a chance to run the table in. November in your dream scenario which is clearly a Biden nomination whom does he choose as VP. I'm kind of a big fan of Gretchen. Whitmer the governor of Michigan. She gave a rebuttal to the state of the Union and she talks about things that matter to people in my own state. Our neighbors in Wisconsin and Ohio. Pennsylvania and all over the country wages have stagnated while CEO pay has skyrocketed so when the President says the economy is strong. My question is strong. For whom strong for the wealthy who are reaping rewards from tax cuts? They don't need. She's very focused on issues. That Matt An and that's what it's about who fights for working hard working Americans Democrats. Do you know we had actual real life experiment in two thousand eighteen where you had. I think it was fifty times that a leftist candidate challenged a liberal and forty seven times in the primary to liberal run. We had the biggest margin in the history of Y- election. We had the highest turnout since women were granted the right to vote and you know what we we just talked about fundamental issues and then it went poorly until James Clyburn got up and just knocked a hole democratic body back into reality in that we owe him a great debt.

Strategist Steve Schmidt Discusses Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump
"Do you think that Bernie Sanders is the biggest threat to your president trump? Right now I do think so I would say that the biggest threat to president trump is president trump. What do you mean by that? Well if he's on his game as he was at the state of the Union there's a candidate in the country that can beat them if there is a second choice of than himself it would be Bernie Sanders Bernie. Sanders brings out outside game in a similar fashion. That president trump did in two thousand sixteen interesting moment there with Tim. Scott of South Carolina Senator Bernie Sanders coming off a big win in Nevada. And on Saturday we will come to what is only. Let's remember the second primary of the political season. Let's talk about the state of our politics with us. Now Steve Schmidt a veteran former Republican strategist us since left the Republican Party. But he's here with US tonight. That's all we care about. Let's take them one at a time. Let's start with the Republicans. Start WITH SENATOR. Scott's point the biggest risk to donald trump is donald trump because we just had shannon petty peace with with a straight face as a reporter. Say It's another one of these crises corona virus. That trump didn't start himself. Well Look Tim. Scott is correct. I mean the person that is always created the most powerful for Donald trump politically is is donald trump but since his acquittal by the Senate as he's purging the government of anybody he thinks is disloyal as he is taking his revenge is he is a visceral rating the rule of law in unprecedented fashion. Interfering in criminal cases the Department of Justice his poll numbers are going up and so he is consolidating power at an alarming rate in doing so liberally. Let's talk about the Democrats and as we do. I WanNa play the Clip Bernie. Sanders campaign manager. Came on with Chris Hayes earlier on this network tonight. We'll look at that one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty. You get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question he gives you a direct response comes from his heart from his soul. Tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective but you know he's he's shooting straight with. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba and the Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there were some good things that happened in Cuba. We should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people will play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We've benefited from the fact that his stray shooting his integrity. His honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink at him that were tonight and at a CNN town hall and the last hour people to judge just said in effect here. We are as a party. We're talking about Fidel Castro. Indeed and they are and you look at travesty of a debate if you're in the business of wanting to remove Donald Trump from office. The one thing that wasn't talked at all about in that debate was trump or trumpism and so the campaign managers talking about Bernie Sanders Integrity. Is he showing integrity by not releasing his medical records? Is he showing transparency and integrity by not talking about the Price Tag associated with student? Loan Forgiveness Free Pre pre K. daycare for everybody. And there's no price tags on any of this. It's a dishonest progressivism. That's NO DIFFERENT THAN DONALD. Trump's dishonesty talking about the Mexican paid for wall it's all fantasy and so when Bernie Sanders goes out there. He starts talking about well. Here's the good sides of Fidel Castro. I think it's important to understand that there might be a constituency for that in this country but it's a really small one and it's certainly not enough to get you into an electoral college majority to win the White House. And it certainly dooms your chances in Florida. How do you process the fact that tomorrow night? We're going to have seven people on stage. Two of them are billionaires. Two of them look at real double digit poll numbers knowing that money bought those poll numbers not some inner need to have them as our next president. How do we process that well? I think they're two different cases right so first off. Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City for twelve years and by any objective standard. He was one of the most competent successful leaders of large government anywhere in the world over the last quarter century. He was a profoundly successful mayor. I think it's a mistake for Democrats to attack. Somebody like Mike. Bloomberg who grew up in a middle-class circumstance and is a self made man is one of the country's greatest philanthropists and I disagree with him on a number of different issues but if you are invested in progressive causes. It's hard for me to think of anybody who has done more to advance progressivism whether it's on gun issues whether it's on climate then has Mike Bloomberg so the notion that Mike Bloomberg is on that stage somehow illegitimately is not something that I really understand. Tom Steyer has been an activist in American politics. Now for some period of years he has communicated a message. He's gotten the requisite poll numbers to be on the stage. The question will be after the South Carolina primaries. If you have eight moderate Democrats all of whom might have a greater chance of beating Donald Trump and does Bernie Sanders? Will some of those candidates get out of the race to help coalesce support around the strongest? Moderate candidate? Poor the issue right now in the Democratic primaries you cannot make an objective judgement and say Bernie Sanders is going to go down to Donald Trump in the swing states on the basis of poll numbers because the poll numbers. Don't support that in those states. But when you look at Bernie Sanders positions that we should criminalize illegal immigration. That we're going to take health insurance away from one hundred fifty million people who have private health insurance a of other issues the type of rhetoric that you saw him use on sixty minutes talking about Castro. All of these issues come together. In a way that I think objectively with James Carville said is disqualifying for somebody running for president in somebody. Who'S LIKELY TO LOSE TO DONALD TRUMP and I think that's what you're saying. A lot of panic in the democratic electorate in the democratic officeholder class in these days really focused on Steve Schmidt always a pleasure. Thank you for
Where does the Democratic primary stand after New Hampshire?
"A license join me earlier in the program from NPR she's also a familiar face on fox news talking about twenty twenty the Democrats and much more here's part of my conversation with Mara okay where to begin let's let's start with New Hampshire okay and your response your reaction your analysis now that were a bit removed from what happened about where this race currently stands I think the race currently stands with one candidate who seems to have consolidated the left lane of the party that's Bernie Sanders and the center lane is filled with candidates and sap lane has not coalesced around a single alternative to Sanders he's been winning with twenty two percent of the vote twenty five percent of the vote much much less that he got last time remember New Hampshire twenty sixteen a bit help be calorie Clinton by twenty two percent two got something like sixty percent of the vote what New Hampshire told us this time is a lot of that code for Bernie Sanders last time was anti Hillary it wasn't necessarily pro Sanders because that though didn't just go to another left wing candidate Elizabeth Warren get when people to catch any club which are it tells you that Sanders is the leader he has the most plausible path to get a plurality of delegates just what we see now but the big question is can the center left coalition around one person so let's discuss coalescence first on the progressive side you mentioned Elizabeth Warren she put out at this appeal basically pleading with her supporters earlier saying I need money and I need it now to stay viable through super Tuesday is she don it is done if he can't win somewhere where is she going to win that's a question I mean she was not just competing in New Hampshire he was from Massachusetts message right candidates have a built in advantage that mediate the share of media market with New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is also a neighbor but not the kind of neighbor that people from Massachusetts are so people really knew Alyssa formed in New Hampshire on a voted for her in fourth place and she also put a huge amount of time and effort into Iowa a massive ground game she came in distant third then really stumbled I mean fourth place in Iowa a in in New Hampshire rather is is really catastrophic for her and that's your point is right I look ahead to the next couple states and then super Tuesday where do you see a you know low hanging fruit to be plucked by Elizabeth Warren to actually know where I don't really see nowhere nowhere I don't see one do you think he might want her to stick around just to to eat out aggressive voters so it doesn't get easier for Bernie no yes if that was true but I don't think her voters work all going to Bernie I'd like early on progresses decided if we want to choose between two left wing candidates let's choose the guy who's been around the longest and has never wavered in his belief in our again that may pick Bernie what he started shedding voters remember Elizabeth Warren was once at the top of the heap at the polls when he started hitting voter she showed them to Amy Klobuchar and people to catch so that was pretty interesting this is not has not been a neatly dividing ideological race very important point and I just add one note on that yeah so I saw morning console call where they ask democratic voters for their second choice right to the got their favorite but if not him or her then who and among Joe Biden's supporters next on the depth chart number two choice was Bernie Sanders and rally for Bernie Sanders yeah yeah everyone keeps saying well if if these people all get together then they can stop burning and it's just not quite that simple but it is very obvious that the establishment of the party the center left they're getting extremely worried about Bernie Sanders James Carville is out there shouting to anyone who will listen this is a disaster in the making listen to cut five he was Carville on TV there's a certain part of the Democratic Party wants us to be a cult I'm not interested in being in a call I'm I'm seventy five years old I'm just not a not a very cold to person the only thing the plane began nine states in the abyss if the Democratic Party and if we go to where the British labor party if we nominate German Coleman is going to be to end today I am I'm scared to death I really am the end of days and of course the Jeremy Corbyn references to Bernie Sanders Bernie firing back in cut for Hey was it all the respect is a political hack who said very terrible thing was what he was working for Clinton against Barack Obama Vicki said some of the same things we are taking on troll the Republican establishment call gold and the democratic establishment but at the end of the day the grass roots movement that we are putting together of young people of working people of people of color want real change

"james carville" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"Don't go there but if you love your dog if you're a good dog owner you'll go to a rough grains all right so Bernie Sanders is. He is not happy about some comments made about him. by top Democratic Strategist James Carville. Now Bernie issued a response on Anderson Cooper but let me just go over The initial statement that was made by James Carvel. He said you know the turnout in the Iowa Caucus was below what we expected what we wanted. Trump's approval rating is probably as high. As it's been this is very bad. I mean to maybe And now it appears. The Party can't even count on votes. What am I supposed to think? I'll just say it this way. The fate of the world depends on the Democrats getting there s together and winning in November. We have to be trump. And so far. I don't like what I see and a lot of people. I talked to feel the same way. He went on to talk about. Open borders decriminalizing illegal immigration Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn't matter what you think about any of that or if there are good arguments talking about that is not how you win a national election. We'll Birdie was not happy with these comments made by James Carville. He went on Anderson Cooper on CNN. And here is what Bernie had to say in response to the accusation that he is too extreme. All due. Respect is a political hack. Who said very terrible things what he was working for. Clinton against the Barack Obama. I think he said some of the same things. We are taking on the establishment. This is no secret to anybody. Take it on the I guess the former head of Goldman Sachs attack be yesterday. Got Hit him and he did wolf granted. The insurance companies don't like me and you know what the fog is suitable industry which is charged. She goes ten times more for the same drugs they sell and they don't like me. Notice the fossil fuel industry because their product destroying our planet note as the Military Industrial Complex. So the prison industrial complex we ought taking on trump. The Republican establishment and the Democratic Establishment. Know it seems to me that I think there's an underlying pattern here that just like private companies don't like Bernie Sanders. No one that makes money short list. Bernie. Sanders is kind of a theme. That I'm sitting here. I'm not too sure that it would be something that I personally would brag about but hey I'm not a communist. So what do I know Jason Your thoughts. What I love about this is it's you're you're getting this rant from Carville but this is like a window into the mind of every single probably ninety percent of Democrats right now and it's actually a small minority I believe that are these radical lefties. But for some reason they've been able to get you know they've been they've been able to make the narrative or the Bernie narrative the narrative of the Democratic Party. And everyone kind of sees that and I was I was. I was reading this article about. I think it was New Hampshire and they were talking about how there was Voters that for the first time ever. They did not know who they were going to vote for going up to the night of the election. I don't know if that's how they were. There was one woman was saying. Look if you're advocating for like erasing college debt which was like half of them up there then. I worked my butt off like I'm a Democrat but I worked my butt off. You know to put my kids through college so she did not know that a vote for going all the way up into the end of the pool. That's how they all right now Bernie. Sanders got fifty percent less votes in New Hampshire this year this election. They didn't twenty sixteen the way more Mojo back then but now there's a little bit more competition there like crap. Now there's a choice. I don't have to go to the woman that I think should be in prison. Hillary Clinton so they all voted for him. Now there's a little bit what they think might be moderate even though none of them are moderates. You've got a few more often sold by the way trump got twenty four percent more votes than he did right well and I mean there's something to be said for that John Because you know he's an incumbent. He's obviously going to win the Republican primary. What is the driving force of people getting up and going to the polls just to vote for president trump when he is the incumbent when you think for him he's got his base? All fired up. Impeachment is definitely fire them up. I think what you're seeing. Though is a similar thing happening on the left with Bernie Sanders because justice trump harnessed. The media. Hate a lot of people had now that's starting to turn on the Bernie fans and they're seeing how. Msnbc CNN or all turning on him and bring up these old stores and all that kind of stuff so now they're being like oh wait. The media is our friend either so now he's utilizing that same power to to push out his vote to so we'll see if it works. Yeah I mean last people. You want With some sort of conspiracy theory against you Bernie rose ready are. They're vicious. They are already maybe rightfully so they already have some. You know bad feelings about twenty sixteen and the way that things got taken from Bernie. How they that's how they feel And that's not really who you want. I think Banging down your door especially when the field staffers are telling people they're gonNA go set Milwaukee on fire but what do you make of Bernie trying to respond to James Carville? That he is not too extreme. I mean I feel like probably the worst argument to make when you're saying how you're not. Extreme is how many people hate you. I mean that's GonNa put people that are moderate and in the middle usually aren't hated by that many people and I think what's going on with Bernie is I think. He thought that he was GONNA walk in. The field was going to be his in. There weren't going to be any better candidates and I think as saw in Iowa where basically him and Buddha judge or tied and I think the entire Party went. Wow we never even gave the sky shots and now what we're seeing. Is I think kinda running around like a chicken with his head cut off. And he's freaking out because he has lost his momentum and I just don't think he's going to get this nomination and that terrifies him. Go ahead I suppose they think think how terrified they are Bernie Sanders winning this nomination. Now there's a very good chance unless Bloomberg just something crazy on Super Tuesday actually. I think there's a very high chance they go towards a broker convention because it's just going to be so close but think I'll terrified the overrun imagine running a socialist against Donald trump an angry socialist against donald trump. He's GonNa eat him alive and all he has to do is just talk about hit. Socialism nonstop hit socialism. Social taking away your choices all these things. Look if you're in a if you're in the middle of the Road Democrat you're going to vote for trump probably nine times out of ten well and that's what. I keep trying to just leave a little bit of room for you know you look at Bernie Sanders. What seventy five thousand votes in New Hampshire And then you know but you have to factor in okay but this was when the Democrats had different options. Obviously there will be Democrats who voted for Pete. Buddha judge who voted for Amy Klobuchar. Who voted for some of the other candidates who will vote for Bernie instead but but they're not going to be passionate voters right. I don't think that people other than Bernie's rabid base or going to be like I have to get to the polls come rain wind or shine with these other with these other candidates if that's who they're backing at this particular time so. I wonder how many of those other voters will actually go out and cast the vote for someone like Bernie if he in fact is the the nominee. It's very telling if you just if you look at the twenty sixteen numbers you would have thought that Bernie. I mean he was doing awesome. You know last night last election you would have thought that since Clinton's not there he would have picked up a lot of that but I mean I even though Clinton fell weird calling. Some of these candidates moderates because none of the most moderate possible Canada moved the opportune window. Because they will now say. These people are the moderates and if we just accept that then the next cycle it's going to move even further to the last so they actually call a Tulsi Gabbard a moderate. Like what are you talking about? Like off the Bernie Sanders campaign in two thousand sixteen. She wants the same thing as all of them. Universal healthcare everything. I can't think of one single moderate. It's crazy I do think to that. What's scary is that I think. Buddha judge is being portrayed as some sort of moderate ish alternative to crazy socialist Bernie Sanders. And when you look at his policies they are not what you would call moderate and any sort of objective sense All right just for funsies. Let's play This Bernie Sanders Montage. He says he's not extreme You know I'm just. It's just that I just want all of these normal rational things for America yet Apparently they were able to make a montage that shows basically he just loves communism and Khamis..
BONUS: State of the Race | 2020 Primary Analysis with Emily Tisch Sussman
"I'm Jim Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with democratic political strategists Emily Tisch sussman and she's a correspondent on MSNBC and CNN. And she's also the host of the popular political podcast primary playlists. She actually interviewed Hillary Clinton and last week. And I'm totally jealous anyway. Emily join me for quick state of the race analysis including a post debate analysis of the first democratic debate following the Iowa Cacus the Iowa caucus the Seattle with a surprising in ever changing results. Yes that Iowa Caucus we also talk about Tuesday's New Hampshire primary and and what's going to happen beyond that. So here's my conversation with Emily Tisch Sussman to sussman. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much for having me you know I just realize is yesterday that we're entering the second week of February. It's very new and I need a vacation. I need my summer vacation like yesterday. He because I was thinking through last week Monday was the Caucus Iowa caucus which was chaotic. To say the least following that I think Tuesday was the wildest Steve The union I've ever witnessed my entire life than once they I think was the acquittal Thursday. We had a bit of a break and Friday. I think was the tenth. Democratic debate was at the tenth or the eleventh. Yeah something around that. I am extremely pregnant right now and like the joke that this thing could force me into labor like shocking into into Labor like stopped being funny this week because there were many although the thing that ultimately ended up doing it was when I was worried that Jerry Harris wasn't going to share bat was ultimate. Well you made it. You made it especially to the caucus. So what was your take. What's your take on the Iowa caucus from last week in the state that we're in right now because honestly i? I'm still a bit confused. It is crazy. I mean I've been saying I was at I was at in Iowa for the caucus in two thousand sixteen and was truly leash shocked by the process and the fact that I felt like so many people got left out because they didn't just couldn't have the time or the transportation to be able to show up and participate -ticipant net Last week one of the things that almost shocks me into Labor is that I interviewed Hillary Clinton and she said the process was undemocratic which is actually the farthest this I've ever heard anybody go in describing it and I think that how everybody pretty much feels that way like one of the things that I worry about in the long term as if November is the long-term though when weeks or as long as last week November can feel like long term one of the things that I worry about is that even if trump is loses uses. The electoral college loses the election. He won't step down and he'll question the results of the election and I don't think that that the results also the Iowa caucus if we even have results right now. We finally do and Democratic candidates questioning the results of it. I don't think it helps set a precedent for us to be able to have a peaceful transfer of power if there should be one November. No because you're exactly right because immediately wants to come out about the Iowa Caucus. He jumped on twitter to cast doubt on the whole process. Do you remember that. Said something like old Democrats are in disarray or something. I O caucuses a mess. and He's already casting doubt down on the process. Probably looking for is what's going to happen in November exactly. It's a way to be able to do so doubt from the beginning so that he can essentially control control the outcome because if he controls the entire frame of the narrative which isn't that he's very good at doing then he can get everybody reacts to it so we're no longer just starting from creating our our own framework of like what would normally be considered truth. We're only reacting back and forth to what he says. I'm glad you said that because I've been thinking about that too and I kind of mentioned that every now and again but I still kind of like a conspiratorial list when I talk about the fact that he may not stepped down. He's been hinting at this. Like he tweets out trump twenty twenty four trump eight trump. We know twenty thirty two. I mean he won't be alive that long but I mean but there's always exactly but anyway anyway so you know it's it's it's actually a possibility that we would have to struggle to get him out of office even if he did lose the electoral college in November. I mean it's something that seems totally crazy but these are crazy times and we are not dealing with somebody who is truly grounded in reality when you are only driven by by our own narcissism and and. Apparently the rules don't apply. I feel like everything's on the table. I think one of the biggest impacts of his presidency is that we don't know how to follow up with questions so we we see we've seen this time and time again although there's no longer White House briefings but but it started from day one right from the beginning with Sean. Spicer talking about the crowd. The size of the inauguration that journalists would say well that's wrong. Here's the evidence and whether it's the president or the surrogates would say well no. I'm just sticking to my point. How many times can journalists follow up and say you're factually incorrect? It's right in front of you before they have to just move on right. Exactly I mean I try to follow up on the the lies in that seat of the new address. I mean like Nancy Pelosi the only thing she could have was tearing up the and and let me tell you why I actually think that was so brilliant is the next day. The only conversation was about Nancy Pelosi. Tearing up trump ended up tweeting more about Pelosi tearing bring up the speech than the content of his own speech. Yeah so the Iowa Caucus you know. I think that we have the results. Although I did see something this morning that said that the the Sanders Bernie Sanders was asking for a partial re canvassing of Iowa. And I'm not really sure what that process is but I guess just in short. I don't think that this completely close is an honestly I mean. I don't wanNA sound like trump. I'm not sure how much we can even trust the actual numbers. I'm just not sure I mean. How much do they trust that I mean at this point? What what they have are going back to the paper recordings of tallying up counting? Who is in the room counting? Who moved I mean they're they're combing back through it. I think the thing that has been frustrating to me about the coverage of Iowa is that it's not winner. Take all so who quote wins. Sounds actually doesn't really matter that much it's how many delegates you get out of it. The the reason we care about who wins is because they get a lot out of momentum out of it they they are now seen as electable they can you know bank on fundraising on momentum all of that but that was essentially all negated because of the disaster the function of the caucus So the fact that he and Buddha judge are neck and neck within one delegate in the grand scheme of things one delegate it is likely not GonNa make the biggest difference it feels like they should just move onto the next contest. You know practically it doesn't make a difference but you're right. It does make a difference in terms of momentum and I think that Buddha judge has probably benefited the most from being that close to sanders right. I think that the final count was Buddha. Judge was one delegate ahead of seeing. What's so essentially? You could say claim that he's the winner the winner of the Iowa Caucus which you know as far as like optics are concerned earned. That's really good for him and not the best sanders given given like if you look at the entire context of the primary the news. That's falling Bernie Sanders this week right He had an interview with Chuck. Todd or he talked about you know. He decided that he wasn't going to release his medical records. Right and then James Carville didn't interview where he also also questioned whether it was a smart move for America to select Bernie Sanders as their nominee. Right I mean so I think that Bernie Sanders Sanders needed that push more than Buddha judge at this moment. Well yes I mean I think they both I think they both benefited from it. A lot because sanders entire argument has been Ed. I am electable because I will turn out new voters. I will expand the electorate. I will bring out people who don't normally vote and because because the turn out is actually less than two thousand eight and a little bit above where it was in two thousand sixteen. That argument looks like it fell a little bit flat that it may not be true wasn't like there was this surge of new people coming in Buda judge I think benefits from it. I actually think they both benefit equally. I don't think it really matters who at this point is named like the quote winner. Because I think the whole thing just looks like maths to be honest with you and I think it's why people care about New Hampshire so much but I think that the reason that that Buddha judge got a big bump from it is really the Buddha Judge Biden narrative that it's such a huge contrast where Biden's made argument was electability pretty And the fact that booth judge performed so much better than Biden defying define where people thought that he would have been even in the the last couple of polls before that it seemed like he had fallen maybe to third or fourth so the fact that he did so much better I think was the big exciting narrative for him happy. You know. Reporters don't really want to report on something that if it seems like it's supposed to happen it happens like not that exciting but if it seems like it's not supposed to happen search then it's amazing. I mean I think unfortunately the candidate that really got raised in all of this is the fact that Warren came in third. She in this race this she came in third. She will probably come in first or second in New Hampshire. So let's talk about her that way.
"james carville" Discussed on The Adam Carolla Show
"Back. Please welcome Adam Corolla and James Carville. Don't act thank the University of Southern California l. -fornia for foreign ED roads wrong. So we're GONNA do about forty minutes college football and then we'll dedicate the the last three minutes to political questions James and I have met before and I've interviewed change before so I'm the course looking forward to this and I have so many questions about what's going on in in politics and feel like you're uniquely qualified to answer so let's just start with the Democrats. What do you think what do you like? Who Do you like? What do they think? Think I think I I think there's one moral imperatives in that is to give trump out of assassins you can't and anything that is in furtherance of that moral imperative fall but obviously I want to get trump our our and the best way to get trump out or the only way to get trump out is to get a Democrat in and the question is is do you go full Hard sorta radical left Bernie Sanders. Do we move toward the center with the Elizabeth Warren..
"james carville" Discussed on The Adam Carolla Show
"'cause Carol had this whole beautiful setup at Out of the Airport lax airport and a whole full crew. Everybody there and just prior that point I had been working for a Japanese company called. He know who still exists there primarily of manufacturer manufacturer buses and trucks but At that time we're talking about one thousand nine hundred sixty seven or so. They had a group within the company. I need that were enthusiasts that wanted to build a very high quality porsche type car and through a long series of events I got together and began again to do some development for them and one of the last things that we did that was really great as they had. They had finally built very nice little coupe and they gave me two of them to run in the United States to see how it would work in the American market because at that time no Japanese company had yet ascended to the top there. Toyota Nissan were here but they were basically building sort of under licence French or German or talion or English type. Cars were all very much outdated and we're not very successful in the American market Hino came over with a car that they developed out of actually Reno and gave those cars to me and a I put the full hot Rod treatment on and the first the vent that we really had to compete with the Times Mirror Grand Prix in in sixty eight was riverside. Yeah so Because because the Times Mirror Grand Prix it was not Sanctioned by the way but by the CAL club which was a separate group here in southern California they were the first ones to really put put on professional racing in the United States on road racing prior that point the sea which is based out of Westport Connecticut head this very Olympic ideal. All all recent was supposed to be for gentleman. It wasn't to be paid for so when the cow club started setting up pro races out here in California with the Times Mirror Grand Prix it became the largest paid money race in the world. We had all the top drivers from Europe coming over and it was a major major deal and we had crossed out there starting at eighty thousand thousands clear up till I think one hundred thirty thousand. That was a that was a big deal race. It was a race that went on. For many years. It was a race that Let's see who famously it was. Newman race there. Quite a few times. Everyone race there and the trend. The name escapes me but all the one of the drivers offers of the Newman nine thirty. Five and I'll come back and hit you with it in the second died there in a nine thirty five I think in like eighty eighty eighty three eighty four so I have a lot of vivid memories of that that track I went to a race. They're not with. My Dad. Was someone else's Dad. I I did didn't like racing down. I went there and like eighty two or eighty three so Is a story Ray. So you brought the Hino there. We took took to Hino's there and what happened is sorry Ralph stumbling. Oh Yes yes sorry got well. This is clear much much charlier of the racing. Just sixty eight of lunka Yup so in other to have an opening event there of the The Times Mirror Grand Prix. The CAL club decided that they would have Rafer sedans because he. SEC did not recognize it and racing. I mean the Transam. None of this ever for happened. Cal Club here in southern California was the guys were the visionaries. It wanted to pay money. That understood that there was a whole market for sedans so into heaven. Opening event there They invited all the guys in southern California that wanted to raise sedan. So we had this incredible collection of mini coopers. Cooper is a Lotus Cortina's Sobs of rentals You know every foreign car it could not race in the SPCA but was sort of run by a bunch of enthusiasts showed up there and they had this opening event so I build up a couple of real hot hainault thirteen hundred contests and we lead the field in one one two and it was a major major deal because what had happened is that the Japanese were had come to the United States to see the way the Americans promoted motor racing to sell cars and so when I pulled into into victory circle at that time I was surrounded by Japanese with cameras. Whatever so this was major major news? In Japan the company that was practically unknown in the United States and was on the bottom of the pecking order in Japan had won this major race in United States so that was the real turning point at that point we got offers from all the Japanese companies to work for them and I turned down the deal. Because I've been working with for three years. They were great people to work with and so at some point A A plan to build the Allama car to go for the GT class at Lomonosov. He no Lama. He Lamont now again. If you guys are listening and you probably walk down the sidewalk one hundred feet and you see a big box trucks. Probably GonNA say he know on Roy so it seems insane. It's sort of have it's sort of like you're talking about Burger King serving Kobe beef. You know hundred dollar Kobe. Beef Burger King. It's like he know back then was trying to get into this and they were on the right direction with it. So what happened is is that it's the only products that really the Toyota was selling in the United States. Great numbers at that time with pickup trucks. Their cars were jump right But they were selling pickup trucks because he can still pickup cup trucks. The every Japanese gardener every little tool shop or whatever and more production for brick but so they made a financial takeover takeover a hostile takeover Hino and Japan to absorb them because they had a huge building of building building a pickup truck from Japan. So all Hino cars became a Toyota pickup trucks. So at that point they began looking to see what else the United States and sent somebody over the United States to look around and came to my shop and Saul of that I was doing in immediately offered me their their race program again. Where was B. R. A. Physically one three seven Oregon Street and also GonNa do really really how many square feet I think we had about Twenty Thousand Square feet in there for decent sized nice little shop so they come to you not hino but now Toyota absorbed he now and they say what can we do to win some races. Will they already had pretty much audio what they wanted to do because they were already working with a beautiful little car call the two thousand. Gt and this corot actually been designed by Yamaha and they had tried to sell design to Nissan Nissan had already been working on their own idea of to fear. Gt which became the two forty so they turned it down sold. The program to Toyota and Toyota decided that they wanted to bring it to the United States and they offered me the contract to develop a run the cars so I was over the moon. You know hero really got this great program put together and then if that same time Ford had cut off shelby so he didn't know quite what he was going to do. He had a guy that handle all his finances that got him berry. Calloway said what are we GONNA do. And Berry wisely said what you should do with Buyatoyota dealership and caroline know anything about him poorly cars or without a good deal. Yes do that so he sent berry down to Toyota. In Guardian explained to them shelby. Wanted it go set up a new Toyota dealership whatever and they said great. This is wonderful. have him come down here. We'll organize this whole thing. So at the same time they also also offer him when they interest when they realized what shelby I mean. He's at the peak of his career. He had just one law. Nineteen fifty-nine yeah. Well look so pete. Brock had done with Hino at the Times Grand Prix Riverside. That's a nice little win. Walmart's a nice big wet. Yes so you got a choice between a guy who's a regional guy. Whatever a household name absolutely go with the household assault yet they saw the the opportunity there and of course carol you know later on what year thought about going race and they said well we just signed a contract with me? We'll hill. He just got changed my tires. You know so anyway he He was able and and Toyota made the right decision. I mean you look at what they were going to do but they'd already signed a contract with me but that didn't mean anything to them at all faiths still went with shelby and you thought and by the way back in the day I mean you work for shelby designed the Daytona did all this stuff. When you laugh you just left? You didn't get paid eight anymore. There was no royalties. There's no anything right well. It was a takeover by Ford at that time because the reason that Ford it actually hired shelby was was the success of our cars at the Daytona and Cobra. Tony Coops special. So for example in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. We were actually at shelby. We were actually competing with Ford because they had just bought the design from Eric Broadley which became the GT forty. They bought the mark. Six Lola from the Eric Broadley developing that car. And we're GONNA go racing with it. I'm going to jump around here for second and then sheer back Is it true through that When I guess the five Daytonas came back from Allen Man in Europe and they came back to the shelby shot that shelby wanted to get rid of them and said like anyone three grand take one? Is that we there for that absolutely even by one digit. The interesting thing is was enough. Was it three thousand dollars even cheaper. What happened is the first car that came back with numbers? CSX twenty two eighty seven which is currently in the Simione Museum. Yes in Philadelphia that car since it had most it was the first Bill Kerr had the most amount of miles on it got sent back to the United States to be refurbished furbish and it went on tour with Ford Motor Company and what they call their total performance to her and they had this to forty foot trailers the drag racing cars and NASCAR stalkers whatever and one of the displays was was the Daytona Coupe that had been all really carried out beautifully. Done What happened also at the same time is that The world land speed record was a major major deal in a fight between goodyear and firestone and Craig breedlove at that time had built the first spirit of America cars and was competing up there on the salt nope and was having a little problem and had made a contract with the Usak that they had a certain amount of days to run. And if you did not get on the track USA Husak had a contract clause that you headed to hand it to the next guy in line in the course of weather was critical up there. So if you got on the record on the salt set the record of the and the weather change then you own. The world land speed record and it was a major major advertising because they'd put a double truck out in life magazine Senate both magazine Goodyear firestone alright world championship so when they were torn down neither the could get back on Tony Weber from goodyear. Call down to shelby. WHO's a distributor for goodyear tires on the West Coast said get a car appear and we can pretend pretend to set records and pretend to keep the competition off the salt right and that car that Cope Daytona date that sorry covert Daytona? It was the one that went and set the records. Yes yeah was that car offered for how much within that car came back. It'd been completely pretty much destroyed. Because we'd run and so much we run a twelve hour record up there on a circle and the salt was not white enough to get a twelve mile circle in there so for about a quarter mile it had run out in the dirt and in twelve miles it got so chewed up with a car. Going through the car was just almost falling apart. I mean the door for the windshield with broken. The car was just a disaster so it went from a conqueror appearing card complete junk when it was returned and when it came back they rolled it into the shop. They brought carol down. He's absolutely you know silence. And we were all standing around looking at him and he looked around. Everybody says anybody won't buy this car. You can have it eight hundred bucks and we all turned him down that car. Hard to tell the value now l. i.. Twenty twenty plus million billion twenty plus and listen..

"james carville" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"Now from luminary media and the university of Chicago institute of politics, the accident with your host, David Axelrod. Sui generis one of a kind. That's my buddy James Carville in the world of politics. He is a singular figure, a brilliant, brilliant strategist, passionate, funny, hilarious, really and incredibly incisive. He engineered the election of Bill Clinton as president and was involved in many many other battles over the years electing Democrats across the country, and he's still a huge important voice in democratic politics. I sat down with him this week at the institute of politics at the university of Chicago to talk about his life and career and this two thousand twenty race. That's just unfolding. James carville. A my my old friend great to see you here at the institute of politics. You know, I thought I knew a lot about you. But I studied up for this conversation. And I learned that when you're great grandfather came here. He didn't come to Louisiana. He came to Wisconsin. Right. So you could your the rage cage, and you could have been the Barkan badger. Well, let's go back. It was actually my great-grandfather in the story is fascinating it, I did not know it. So I will ask about my family when I've kid about who he washed it. Well, it was fun Wisconsin at asthma, and he came to lose Yana, and I was taught at didn't make any goddamn sense. And so I noticed that like my grandfather's name was author and we had on Garfield and uncle John Madison. And my dad is named was Chester as yours. Yeah. I was reading about how union people would name their children after president or you know, African Americans back immigrant children Jefferson of Washington that was not uncommon. That was way that you. So said, this doesn't make sense. Why do we have all of these things family in a come to find out that first of all he was my grandfather, not he emigrated from Arlon? I think went through Toronto ended up in Wisconsin served in the union bridge or in the great famine. You know, our started was it. It was contemporaneous. But we will from County Monaghan, and that wasn't part of the fact that was right on our border with Northern Ireland. And I asked my relatives there. And this is probably just a case of too many kids in to few cows. So anyway after the war he moved to lead him, but comes a Republican member of the legion legislature was actually govern a pinch back. The reconstruction African American governors Louisiana floor leader, and he married if history is complicated. So just my family histories concave to married great-grandmother Octavia do haunt who is part of a failed Belgian colony in Guatemala somewhere. And of course, she didn't quite share his views in so people did after whites did after the war because you Surtees member prohibited. Involuntary servitude. If you had a plantation yet plantation store, so you would pay your laborers in scrip, and I actually have the coins that that still layer which you know, it's horrific part of you know, it's ridic-, but that was the way to operate, and it just goes to show you. Get my great-grandfather. We don't think he saw action, but he was an officer. And he went to I dunno high somebody funded Healy lit to like a boarding school in Indiana. And it's enter families have interesting stories, but that story of my great grandfather who was a Republican member Louisiana legislature. And you grew up in Carville, Louisiana, a presumably named for okay? Another interesting story. My quarters in of my break brand, Paul. Wife who the plantation also became the postmistress right after that time. My grandfather became postmaster in Carville. Call I land will del outta islands Louisiana's action island janitor system, con island sort of post office decided that they wanted to change the designation of the post office. Larry speaks Reagan's guy with. Looked all up on me and on June ninth nineteen oh nine the post office changed the designation to Carville because some bureaucrat sought at there was a Carville at wash both Masset was currently postmaster..

"With James Carville longtime Clinton ally and Enviro confident of Jeb Bush, Republican strategists, Greta van Susteren from Fox News and the editor of the New Yorker, David remnant. Welcome to all you James. Let me begin with. You heard you laughing. The Democrats are having second thoughts. But what is the Clinton can't take away? Well, first of all we're going to follow bomb eight hand concerns. Okay. Let's get serious. What is the latest in a continuation? And if you take it all, and you put it together, and you subtract three point one four one five from you left. What not very much and at the end of the day sort of can't pass a budget. We got another investigation. Just like we had the whitewater just like go through to file you go through Travelgate you go through seven eight different congressional committees. And you wonder why the public is not following this because they know what? It is. It was something that she did. It was legal. I suspect she didn't want Louie Gohmert rifling through emails here that it was legal. It wasn't. I suspect she didn't want Louie Gohmert rifling through emails or what professor Johnny Smith said. She did not want to have to abide by. Foia requests and had she had her information on that publicly accessible server. She felt Hillary did the time that, you know, these dastardly Republicans with someday subpoena all sorts of records, and this way she'd be able to control it. And you wonder why the public is not following this because they know what it is. It was something that she did. It was Neagle. I suspect she didn't want Louie Gohmert rifling through emails, which seems to me to be a reasonable position for someone to take. Well, Chit is in Roseville. California chapter on the Larry elder show. Thank you so much for calling. Yeah. Believe that, you know, different your your propaganda machine. UN Sean Hannity, he makes a little bit more money than you. You're all expelling the same lies, and no it doesn't matter. How you cut it? Right. If you listen to what John dean said today, he said this report was more damning than the Watergate. So you can dilemma would you like to would you like would you like to hear what age bar said about the report? It doesn't matter. I know. I know I know I know it doesn't matter. John John dean is more relevant to you than than the g who said, there's no collusion. No conspiracy. No coordination. No interference on the part of the president no assertion of executive privilege. Sorry. No. Thing. Sorry. Sorry chit. They just didn't prosecute. Well, it seems to me after two years check chat. Don't don't leave come on. It seems to me after two years twenty two months all the money spent all these investigators all these witnesses. It ought to be overwhelming. Here's what bar said about collusion. But again, the special counsel's report did not find any evidence that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with the campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these hacking operations. In other words, there was no evidence of the Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government's hacking. Don't you think after Adam Schiff says that there's evidence of collusion? Chris Cuomo scissors, tons of evidence of collusion. Contact with the Russians by some members of the Trump campaign, not illicit purpose? Not to steal an election. No collusion. No corruption. And remember the whole thing started because of collusion. So now, you have some people convicted of processed crimes or crimes having nothing. Whatever you do with the original purpose of the investigation. Sorry chat, which I can help you out. Here's what your and said about relief factor. It has changed. My life is the only thing I can say been exercising for years. My shoulder isn't bad bad shape. It swelling. It hurts. It goes numb during the night. Well, I heard about relief factor on the radio and I've been hearing testimonies for a couple years heights..

"I wouldn't have called it that way, but but my job is trying to present. The facts in a fair in equal manner in whether I agree or disagree with the call you. I'm mainly defending. The Commissioner and the league on the fact that they have nothing left to do. And that was my my concern about James Carville the other day. Listen, I, I know James Carville is I know him. He's a great. He's a great. He's a great political consultant. He's a great entertainer. He spun a yarn the other day. But when he. Someone who worked at the highest level of government when he made the allegation that the Saudi government which we know is propagating lies and deceit in very well murdered a man when he compared that government to the SEC office. I mean, I I didn't know where to go there. I, it was an outrageous specious lie and it was. It was filled with misinformation for one purpose to incite an angry group of people that just happen to live in the same place. He is right now. That was wrong that you use the phrase that people don't use a lot anymore. He jumped his shock rep into the old finds the episode we on the motorcycle jump in the shop, but you hit it right on the head. I don't know why James. I, I, when I read the article, I said, he's being so this. This is just something just just a play by James, and he knows he's going to get a lot of readership in this halfway tongue in cheek. But when he went on and said what he said, whether he's tongue that she could not, that's not a game and that no listen, I knew I knew I knew I was getting bed with shark the other day that, but that was part of the fun of it. I, I wanted the, I don't know James very well, but I, I've talked to him before and I wanted him on the show because it was going to be pure entertainment. But for someone is smart as he is to take it to that level. That's Buckley. Julia. I think James Carville owes the SEC in the SEC Commissioner and apology. I mean, he should if he was worth half his reputation, he would come out and say, listen, I didn't mean that I didn't mean to suggest criminal intent but or colonial dim. But he hasn't done that because he's having too much fun. This is this is a game. James Carville it serious to the rest of us. Because what it does is it takes things at a real, such as what with Jim off soldiers and trivializes it for the purpose of winning the hour of the day and turns of a TV show or an article that it was wrong. And they reminded me of William Buckley's Union's quote, one of his famous clothes. He's a great great writer task now, and I'm paraphrasing Paul, but he says, sub along the lines of, I'm I believe that you are to. I'm not going to believe that you really mitt what you just said. And I cannot believe that he meant what he said. But he said it and it was stupid. It was wrong. He's a fellow LSU guy, but that's one of the things I try to bring a new show is a sense of reality and assist the fan fair play. Then successor Justice in the comments and that was wrong, whether he went to Alabama, a wedding with then on university agency, it was wrong up and down the road. He just had to go to l.. Hugh brother, James. If you listen to me, you will. You need to gossip. You need to repent from that relates to this guy because it was wrong was unfair, and you shouldn't have bought that out here and it. It was flexed poorly on the rest of us who LSU. That's all. I love you and every other temple you allow when that Jane. So thank you for it. We have to break might be accurate joined shortly.

He just got James Clavell right there. I mean fit in the student section and and holler at the referee grown man. I mean, what do you think about that type of hateful? Well, again, I don't know where you at first. I thought the whole thing was tongue in cheek, but you don't compare respected individual likes Commissioner the SEC to Sadie government right now, if you're if you're, no, that's not you're talking about a government. That's accused of being complicit in a murder of journalist, oh, you used to interview so many different people when you own FM. And I mean different types of not just sports. People and even more so on satellite. But this was probably one of the darkest interviews you've ever done. I mean, I was listening to the voice of evil when I. I mean, I mean, he makes gyms in like a good. You know what I mean? So I don't know. I mean, I, I want this linebacker to play. I I want you to make your connections, you go to Birmingham.

"Thank you very much. So I don't know if you were able to listen to Mr. Carville when he was on here, but he he already referenced your article saying that you make his points. I love that guy isn't his interesting. I can see how he got Bill Clinton, elected president. Oh, man. Once I heard he wrote that in Baton Rouge advocate. I had to just write a calm just to work in the old school references. I mean. Well, let's start. Let's talk about your column first and then we'll, we'll try to figure out what all happens when when you read this piece trying to take us through your mindset and what what inspired you to jump in front of your computer and start pecking. Well, I guess said I just wanted to write a column to work in a couple of, you know, he was in that movie. He was great. I just love the SEC. You know, you have characters like James Carville come on two weeks before the LSU Alabama game, get everyone around up. It just begged to be responded to. So what so? I mean, forgetting what he said because he's a politico and pretty good one. I mean, I don't even if I can ask these questions with a straight face. Where did you find that? He was off base other than the whole premise that, but what I read, what he wrote, I took it. I think it. In tongue-in-cheek, I'm pretty sure that's what he was intended. But I, I kinda, he was hardly he was hardly tongue in cheek here, but let's get. Let's let's get to the facts of the matter of Joe. I think there has been enough tongue in cheek today based on what I know and you may know something different Lee, but there's nothing Greg, thank you can do is her. He's got no return the call, he probably should. It was terrible that Devon white suspended. Thinking about it this way. Okay. If he doesn't white goes through and destroys the quarterback right then maybe he doesn't get a call because Mak Wilson, Alabama linebacker didn't get a call against Tennessee when he took out their quarterback year. But. You know, he, he pulls up against next year old and his face math touches the other face masks of the quarterback. If he doesn't pull up, maybe their face masks, don't touch. Now, none of that has anything to do with what Corval row. Okay. Because he went off the deep end. But this collusion thing. Let's talk about that because I mean he he brought high winds restaurant under for those who don't know it's Birmingham's best known. James beard award winning restaurant, run by Franks debt. He suggested that the SEC boys and girls just hang out at the bar there and work on all their their collusion's such as forcing LSU at play Florida every year while they play a Alabama plays Tennessee. It seemed to go even deeper than that. He talked about other calls to had nothing to do with this particular case, you cover the SEC and I brought up the the, the Smith situation and the Hugh free situation is two reasons why Alabama fans in recent years have been hopping mad at Greg Sankey. Everyone stays mad agrout Sankey and listen. If those guys are eaten at Highland. What is there for Dan? Okay. Well, hey, by the way, Joe, the SEC's doing okay, we're, we're, we're, we're, we're. We can attest to it over here at the network. LSU leads the SEC in opponent penalty yards. This year. They leave the SEC. All right, we'll. I mean, I feel like I don't even need to make this argument, but I'll go ahead and make okay place. LSU bailout. Like a hundred times over in that game, they would not have beaten Auburn with those passenger parents calls. I mean, the refs practically put them in field goal range to win the game. LSU opponent penalties. This season seventy two, Alabama opponent penalties season Fifty-three into discussion. Florida had eleven pilled is one hundred sixteen yards against us. I mean, that's more yard knicker said, even rush for Greg Saiki was practically giving you the game LSU had two penalty Georgia to Texas and m. gets more penalties before the game even start. Okay, so then Carvel love him..

"Done this a long time. Never been big. I've ever had quite. An interview like James Carville. There was some of the things that he had to say, but we are going to move on and check in with Harry next in New Orleans. Hello, Harry. Fall. I don't wanna I call today. I got connected and I had no idea was going to be commenting on a collusion allegations, but I, I would like I would like to ask you to Bill with me and I'm a make this short and sweet Ken. I wanna say this ball, if there's one thing about your show and you is that you have have proved that you'll willing to to let anybody and everybody onto Boyce their opinion. And I really applaud you for that. However, I do wanna say never thought I would hear a legal gadfly Beal out to to make such accusations. He knows Paul that has the as you so eloquently put it. I couldn't have asked any better questions or you'd be and and the, you know, commend you for that. Who say one thing about and. As you grow older and experienced a position, you go through a lot of hoops, and I'm I'm at the point right now where I think that needed to be heard whether I agreed or disagreed, and I certainly don't agree with some of the accusations. I tried very gently and respectfully to point out that this is not under the purview of the Commissioner. He has no alternative and and and Carville decided to say whatever he wanted to. He is a fan. He's also one of the most brilliant political strategist of of any generation and he did on this program what he has done so many times in running political campaigns. He took a kernel of truth and made made a mountain out of it where you know, he just, you know, I don't care what the facts are. I mean, I'm just going to argue. There's a great line. I think it's by Senator Monaghan moynahan where you can everyone's in entitled to their own opinion, but they're not entitled to their own facts and carbon decided to make up his own facts. I agree with you all and that's what I'm concerned about. I just hope and and I don't know enough about litigating NCA football, but I just hope that there's a band of brothers from Baton Rouge. Don't do anything that's gonna cause any delay and controversy to the expense dragged into court. I just think we need to let the commission of the SEC doing this job and not way all these allegations. One of the accusations in there that involve LSU in Florida. That's an old debate. You know that LSU in Florida, both get too short end of the stick. Yes. Most years. Both both athletic directors have complained about that, but that's not under Greg Sankey domain. I mean, you this, these things take a long time to work out. The commissioners only been the Commissioner for three years, and I feel like I know Greg, thank you very well. He, he is a man of high integrity and honesty, and he rule. In fact, if there's a coach in the SEC who may have his head on a dartboard, it would be it would be Nick Sabin because the Commissioner has gone against him several times he wanted to get some. I think in the MAURICE Smith case, the defensive player who went to Georgia. He went against him and trying to hire Hugh freeze. Greg Sankey has stood up to Nick Saban, Alabama several times and for James Carville to insinuate because that offices in Birmingham, Alabama. They are playing favorites. I, it's, it's really a specious argument and in Karl knows it. But unfortunately, Carvel become an entertainer in his latter years which he's entitled to b.'s. He certainly earned it. But when you start making comparing the Saudi government to. The Commissioner of the SEC. That's when you have gone beyond the pale. We'll get Joe Goodman. Next,.

"Cried passion, then patterns re of college. Football leaves here, this is Paul finebaum show our to podcast. We welcome all of you back to the program and this. This next guest, James Carville has been someone. We have been attempting to interview for documentary series. We've had, we've attempted to get him on our program. We're just fortunate to say Hello to James Carville. One of the most fascinating people in American history, James, thank you so very, never thought. I don't know what you need big fan and I just love your passion, fast football, and it's just such a great thing. Well, I feel the same way about you and and when when I saw today your op Ed piece, I assumed it was going to be about Bob molar or the Russian investigation or the president. I never dreamed it was going to be about the SEC in cahoots with Alabama. Well, first of all, thank you. Goodman who's pretty smart, supposedly wrote a take down on me. He did any actually made every point I made and he said, well, why didn't you know, look what? MAC Wilson's Tennessee, who's a lot worse than that. And then you got this got ala Bama slugging multiple slug him. Someone from zuri out kid does nothing. I mean puts his hand out in front of article engine and they can tell me he has to sit out a half in stopping you think of Alabama plan, Tennessee. All right, Alabama league has our battle plan, Tennessee every ace and a have claimed Florida. Greg, thank you. How many times is Tennessee Florida since two thousand five dancers once. And people in in vans and LSU are sick of it with the of the pro Alabama bias. And I tell you one thing, we do have Louisiana. We got a lot of good lawyers. And I'm gonna get my friend Calvin and get about five of them together and Schubert, and I wanna find out what's going on in that club in Birmingham. How many times the Alabama people taking SEC people Highland by dim and everything else. I really, you know, it's it's detrimental to college football. It's detrimental to SEC. The idea that best player is sitting out a half, but nothing while people had a slugging people plan in the football outright. And I think Donald things ought to be outraged, I make, they want their competition. I really believe. James, listen, this is difficult because I think most a lot of people I don't know most, but a lot of people would agree. It was not a great call, but you also understand this is not a reversible situation. I don't understand that commission. The commission has the power to say in the best interest of competition in the most fair way to do this. I'm gonna let this kid play this. This was a horrible call. These kids get out there practicing three, four hours and all the September. He kind of make classes. I fans all excited and the Commissioner can say, look, this shouldn't happen. I can do it. It's like the pope. He can do anything he wants. They hide behind. He is the commission his own palmful. He scared to death to do anything. I don't want to be. You know me. I'd be the last I ever rained on your parades. I'm not. It isn't NCW rule, and I don't think it is in the power or the purview of the Commissioner to do anything about he. He could. I suppose, issue a statement saying he he agrees with you, but but the forgetting whether he can change the role or not. I, I really am interested in your. Accusation of collusion collusion's big word nowadays in politics. What I'm saying is what Mr. Goodman says is what Pourville should join as an Exxon, what should accused him of inconsistencies and appreciate that. It just so happens when all the inconsistencies fall. One way that is actually evidence of collusion in they, they teach so much. They don't even try to hide it anymore. Cost to commission has the power to to to say this young man can play football against the university of Alabama. They hide behind all of that in go and run the wanna videotape of what's his name Davis like slugging guy from mohair. He was called. He was called for a penalty on that. Come Capelle find call us didn't have to sit out the half of football. Did he? I'm so yeah, he was calling for good. If amalgam multiple slugged somebody it's gonna cost..

Okay. I said that in the new Trump world, it's no longer about having someone who's qualified as a politician or statesman or teacher.

On the, shortlist for a job in that administration so dude. What if you got the job would you still feel the. Same way, I mean we would you be saying it out. Loud yeah what's your problem so anyone. Who's, married to someone who works in the government any capacity loses. The right to criticize the, government I'm not saying anything Right said that you are put. Words what you're saying though. He should not criticize the government because, his wife. Works for the. President she's not very good at her job anyway. But that's beside the she's the only? Female who's ever successfully gotten some way here's the question if people. People hate, us right the lot of people, hate us because we're chicks on the? Ray right, we get a lot of hey so what? If. Your wife hated? Us and your wife started spouting off Steph on Twitter about, us would you feel comfortable with that you work? For a private company No you're not making decisions that impact. My. Warren politics I'm asking the question what did you think what would you. Think about that because you know okay Eddie, white started doing because. I don't care because I believe in you UB you. Right you be new do you specifically in. Terms. Of the public sector it'd be like somebody working for a school, corporation. That's against a referendum or, working, for a city that's against the referendum you don't lose your right to have an opinion just because, you're married to someone or you happen to work for that entity You don't lose your. Right but it. Sure can make that person uncomfortable and it can? Make a marriage uncomfortable and that's what we're trying to say I wouldn't want to be married to someone who doesn't feel. Comfortable speaking their mind at all times and I'll deal with the consequences thankfully our ratings are really great so why would anybody Hey listen I. Want to be married. To somebody who isn't a, conservative frankly I don't know how people people do it 'cause I because I feel. Like your ideals and the way that. You look at the world would be totally skier it'd be hard for me to be married to somebody who just doesn't feel the. Same, way I do about life. Those are fundamental beliefs So that's that's where I look I look at this..
