"I heard all all sorts of people saying who are we to say this and who are we to do that. We're sports media and there's political media and there's tech media and we have opinions and and you don't have to like them. Don't tell me that all retirements are equal and that we should celebrate all players equally. I i will celebrate luck because i thought he inherited a tire. Fire took him to far greater heights than they deserved and now as living with some chronic current pain. I'm all in on him but let me throw this out to you. Kansas city patrick mahomes get to the super bowl. They're playing the philadelphia eagles and and patrick mahomes saturday night retire saying i can't take the stress. I are mentally exhausted. We all good with that. Leaders do not bail on the infantry heading into battle. This is why you ask when you draft a quarterback about mom tom in about dad and about family about cousins. How will you handle the money. How do you handle the stress. This is why we blame big. Ben for some of antonio brown's sounds pushback. We hold quarterbacks to different standards. We pay him more. We ask more brutal questions in the draft half process. This is why not all russell wilson joe buck calls the world series for us and enjoy buck calls the super bowl for us one of the reasons and there's thousands of great play by play guys in america. One of the reasons zain's we pay joe bat. Is we know four minutes before the first pitch. He's not going to go on freaking out on. I can't do this you pay. Hey for a lot of things for quarterbacks. Not just he's got a big arm and wow he can really run you pay for maturity and leadership or ship and toughness and guile and metal and durability and sometimes you don't get an a plus with all of those andrew luck's <music> retirement is justified based on what he inherited what he overcame and what he is now dealing with but if you look at the history of hall of fame quarterbacks they have one thing in common. It is not size. It is not arm strength. It is not mobility. It is not dominant in college hell half of them. We didn't even see playing called in his not you went in the first round around with all of them with no exception they were all great leaders and leaders don't bail l. on their men schwarzkopf to patent to kobe the michael abroad to brady day before battle unless unless unless like andrew luck it is justifiable physically which in my opinion it is but if andrew would a retired a couple of days ago because the stresa playing is too much he would have deserved criticism instead of deserving what he received overwhelmingly lee which was condolences for the injuries. We feel terrible for your decision. This is actually actually courageous. Go get a man. Not all retirement should be treated. Equally quarterbacks are defined signed by a leadership qualities and leaders should never if at all physically possible bail on a team right before the big mission. Let me switch to this so aaron. Rodgers talked about he's is obviously going to be a first ballot hall of famer super super talented guy he did not like how andrew luck was treated by the fans in indianapolis when the announcement came in late in the game. I thought it was pretty disgusting. On now. He's making a really tough decision and even before that you know he makes the decision. I don't know why that doesn't stay in house. We kind of protect protect them a little bit. Although when i think about it i thought it would have been more of a standing ovation type thing and a thank you than than oo <music> aaron era smart guy..

"Welcome. Everybody to baton fell. This is your host Joe bat and feld. We're going to be talking about politics for the next hour all the latest and hottest in the news today. We're going to have a special guest. I believe we're going to have a special guest in the next hour, Scott person. He's a democratic political consultant in a talk talking about twenty twenty and the race the democratic race for president. And as the Republican race to because I did a story last week about Governor William Weld, do you? Remember him are former Massachusetts Governor who is also considering running for president now as a Republican he ran last time in two thousand sixteen on the libertarian ticket as a vice presidential nominee. But now he's thinking of switching back to becoming a Republican and running in that race and challenging directly challenging Trump in New Hampshire and other states, which could be very interesting don't think he has much of a chance, but it could be very interesting to see if he's able to make inroads Ross. Talking about the hottest democrat in the race right now, Kamala Harris who just announced her campaign in last week drew twenty thousand people was on CNN townhall last night, creating a big stir has she usurped our own Elizabeth Warren already it looks like she has because a Warren is down in the polls now way down. There was a recent washing. I think it was the Washington Post ABC poll where Warren is now down to just two percent in the polls. She was named. I should say she was named by two percent of the people by Democrats in the poll when when is in other words when the pollster asked just a blind question who would you support for democrat for president? Just two percent of people said Warren nine percent said Joe Biden, eight percent said dicamba. Harris so already the races on and it looks like our own Elizabeth Warren has some making up to do six one seven two eight six five six three three six one seven two eight six five six three three. Joining us. Now on the line is Scott, I and democratic political consultant Scott, thanks very much for being here on baton fell. I think going on. Yeah. There's something always going on Scott always going on. There's you know, we're talking about the twenty twenty race. We had Kamala Harris rolled out her campaign. And it looks like a she's already one of the front runners in the race was on CNN townhall last night. What do you think of her introduction to the race and wet why she's caught fire so much? Pretty I mean, you know, she's kind of. Politics. It used to be around for a long time. Like. It's sort of the old. The old the old story. But. I think you come out of a compelling story politician. She is one of the results. So, you know, the Senator from the most popular state in the country, and that that's gonna hold that's gonna hold for something. Yes. Brilliant roll out. I mean twenty thousand people that's hard to do. I mean to get a thousand people show up at a rally as. Dismissive of Donald Trump and the crowds. He has you know, it takes it takes a lot to be able to just get a lot of people to show up at a. And it was very impressive. Yeah. In she got a lot of positive press for that. And people were out waiting wine. They couldn't even get to see here because they were waiting in lines outside the event. We we we didn't see that with Lisbeth ward. She chose a very different way to do it releasing video instead of her announcing. Yeah. Somebody who's who's an operative about these things. Do you have to the trick of the trade? Is you pick the smallest of any you can find it back. And I remember doing a a rally a union rally with Senator Kennedy when I worked for him back in nineteen ninety two in the midst of the reception, then we had a very small section math out on city hall plaza. But he got a little freaked out that he thought, you know, knowing how that's expanse. The plaza was possible. It would be a fill. So I'm not surprised that advising even come on Harris. I would say, you know, you sure you're going to be able to do this. And if you try to do it. You know, you guys are you guys are tougher than anybody. If he been five thousand people met Danielle you'd be talking about that today. Right. If there were empty seats, especially we're talk about that, which there has been in some cases, I've been to rallies before I remember going to George Bush rallies where like you said they had to kind of coordinate off like with a curtain a section of the auditorium. So that looks like it's a smaller space. So it looks like it's more packed than it really is. And like, you said that's the trick to pick the smallest space, and pack pack that is as much as you can. But I've seen rallies where presidents don't even get twenty thousand people at rallies before. So she's definitely sensation. Yeah. And then when you put up the the blue pipe and drapey now, I always wonder are we are. We fooling the Joe hotels with them. Yeah. No, you're not. But you know, some people do get full, but. What do you think about? There's polls now showing Joe Biden right at the top with Harris. Do you think it's time for Biden to decide whether he wants to get in or not? I mean is it already is already getting late for him to decide I think of all the people who have yet to jump in. He's probably the one who can hang out the longest. But every you know, I'm I get calls from from people to talk to different candidates and. You know, eventually longer you wait go longer. Fewer people operatives are going to be there with you. I think there's also frankly if people start to peel off and go with other candidates, say Biden gets into what I think is going to be a lot of hurt feelings. So I think I think there's a lot of affection with people, and I think people would want to be with them. So personally. He's rather than wrestle with it and wake up every day and worry about it. You you have to kind of decided money out because it's a very difficult decision for him with his family and everything. And absolutely. Yep. Yep. Where does where does yours Seth Moulton stand in this race right now, he's going up to New Hampshire soon? I guess. Because he decided to test the waters officially. I like of anybody who's an elective office at that level is that their that their potential for president until they say, they're not. And you know, and they don't make that decision. I in. I think I've encouraged septa take a look at running for president. I'm. Honestly think he's he would be an interest Donnelly qualified, although young is forty. But frankly think that's what we need. And I'm a little concerned democrat that even with the leaders of our party, you know, Hillary Clinton supposedly taking a look at it on carrying. I'm I'm against you know, sort of anybody who's taking a stab at this before and looking at it again. And we've got we've got to bring some new leadership into the party. I think represents that wing of the party. So anybody who's run before you, you think they should step aside? And let the new new people come in. Yeah. Would have been like your supporter of Joe Biden if had run, you know, two years ago, but I I think that's that ship has come and gone. And and we should be looking to. I think frankly that Kamala Harris put onto people looking for someone who's gonna be new and exciting and Bigalow sort of carry that torch, if you will she's already. Say a few controversial things including. Eliminating all private health insurance. She said last night on the CNN townhall, basically admitting that people under her plan. She's become president everybody would lose their health insurance. Temporarily as they wouldn't be able to to carry their current health insurance. How do you think that's gonna play among the electorate at large? I mean, I can see that would be big among ultra-liberals. But I'm not sure the rest of the country is ready for taking away your healthcare. Yeah. The I run a small business by provide health insurance that like I pay for for my company pays for employees and business for twenty years, and it's not sustainable now. The the class. And the cost of a family plan as twenty years ago. It was a way lower than a single offering. His today. So I I think there's a general sense. I think people are scared. You don't want to lose, but healthcare that you have. But you know, that there's going to be a better solution out there. And I I take terrace this being sort of approach. I think we're a long way from from anybody would be concerned. Obviously. I mean, I think that probably is an workable solution to eliminate all private health insurance. But moving to a hybrid plan. I think most Americans are kind of there. Yeah. I would I would say hybrid plan is one thing. But not totally eliminate private health insurance is is quite another. I'm not sure if she meant to go that far, but she certainly did. You know, it looks people get kind of out of. A little out of control when they get in front of crowds in front of liberals, and they wanna play to their base. President Trump is guilty of this more than anybody is is playing to your base in hearing those shears thanking uh that's great. I everyone cheering me. They love this. But you gotta think about beyond your audience. Right. I mean, you can't just win playing up to your audience. It's a it's a real hit. And we see every well, I'm not sure the President Trump did it for the primary to the general Midi doubled down. He's always the exception that proves the rule, but the, you know, the the electorate I think is largely in the middle where we would where we would take it politically. But the primary voters on both sides are not and it was about five percent of the democratic electrical Republican electorate going to determine who the nominees are at least on the democratic side, the very very small percentage, and you're right. They're absolutely out there on the left side of the scale hanging over the action. The I think it's gonna be a rush to you know, we could see Kamala Harris who normally for the electorate being a former attorney general is a good credential, but not really in the democratic primary. People have gone hard on criminal Justice reform. Yeah. She's away. She's not gonna play that up so much at least in the primaries. I don't think, but it'd be good in the general election to have. I would think but it's good experience. Yeah. Yeah. She's people forget that. She is very experienced even though she's fairly young inter fifties. She has a lot of experience in California politics. And that's no small thing. You know, rising rising up in California politics. District attorney to attorney general to then to Senator. They played a fairly sophisticated game. As I have come to appreciate from speaker of the house. Yes. Yes. Yeah. That's true. They she's she's a mass Pelosi anyways ambassador at that. But what do you think of Senator Warren's ultra millionaires tax? It's not actually a tax. It's more like seizing assets up to three percent. I guess of billionaires. This would be unheard of in our country. But but something that I think some people would think is pretty popular. Yeah. I if you start with Howard Schultz, I'm all for that. Definitely apply. He would definitely be put it out on Twitter today. This is a guy who got us. To think that a small drink was a Paul. That's genius genius. Genius. Yes. I mean, I the interesting whatever everybody says away from having conversations but tax policy except exce policy, but and we talk about the tax cut from in during the Kennedy administration and people forget that for income over a million dollars, but top tax rate at that point was ninety one percent, right. So having something having a reasonable having her, particularly with credentials lead a discussion about what more reasoned tax policy might be. I think I think makes sense, and we tried it here in Massachusetts with over a million dollars being taxi different rate, and that was sort of a non student..

"Back. Everyone to Batten battlefield. This is your host Joe bat. I want to thank you again. Jim Borge Sanni. Marijuana consultant for joining us in the first half hour. He has some strong words for the governor for governor Baker and for some of some of our state leaders moving too slowly on marijuana still and refusing to acknowledge reality, which is that we have this marijuana legalization in the state, and we should make it as smooth as possible and as safe as possible because that's the reality. We have it. We need the tax revenues desperately. We don't we this. This kind of thing could push tax revenues way up and save us from increasing taxes in other areas. So you think our state leaders would embrace it more. But they're still they're still sort of not on the snide on this one. We still having a government shutdown by the way, six one seven two eight six five six three three is our text. If you want to join the conversation, six one seven two eight six five six three three r. Text line and. Send me a question or a comment on any subject you want? If it whether it's marijuana or the government shutdown or President Trump or congress or there's a big debate going on and bullying now in the state and the. Our leaders. Overstate or a little behind the ball on this one on anti bullying legislation that we need. So the other thing is. Mayor Walsh has his state of the city address coming up tonight. I think it's at seven thirty and. Curious to see what he's going to say, whether whether it's going to signal more political he's been taking a number of political steps to increases visibility statewide and a lot of the legislation that he's proposed in the last few weeks has been statewide legislation that wouldn't affect just the city. We would affect many people across the state not just in Boston. So it's interesting that he's expanding his little empire there and wonder what that means for his political future. One of the things about the government shutdown that you may not be aware of is people are sort of taking the government shutdown stride say no, it doesn't affect me. If I don't work to the federal government. I haven't lost my job, you know. But in fact, there are all kinds of ramifications and one of them is about beer, which is very important to us that. The CEO of harp. We have a story about this. In the herald today, check it out and Boston Herald dot com or get a copy of the herald, the CEO of harpoon beer is hoping the ale. He's sending to the capitol will smooth out are bad feelings and end the government shutdown the lockout Don canary says is a quote, huge inconvenience for beer companies. Stuck waiting to get licensed and label approvals from the alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau which remains closed quote. This is a big deal said canary CEO of mass bay brewing which Bruce harpoon and UFO two major local beers quote. There's going to be a huge backlog coming when it opens. I did not realize that I didn't realize that. This government shutdown was affecting the beer market. But apparently, it is and. Because the bureau was closed.

We're talking hoping to talk about the state of the Massachusetts Republican party has been some changes in the Massachusetts Republican party. New leader leader, Jim Lyons. A new chairman has been elected. He's more on the conservative side. What kind of changes will there be in the party? And will they be good changes will the party they needed changes in the party before? There was a lot of criticism that the party wasn't welcoming to conservatives that they should ostracized conservatives and the Donald Trump supporters out of the party. And there was a big divide in the party between Trump supporters and more moderates, like former chairperson Kirsten Hughes. Now, what's going to happen with the new conservative chairman will the moderates feel ostracized that and not feel welcome. Anyway. Gonna talk. I don't know if anybody you saw Saturday Night Live over the weekend, which is kind of like totally hit or miss now. Mostly miss. I would say very rarely do they have a hit. But I think there was one hit in the show last week as something that Elizabeth Warren. I don't think we'll be really super happy about was her portrayal on SNL. Let's take a listen to what how Elizabeth Warren was portrayed over the weekend on Saturday Night Live number eight dumped into the twenty twenty presidential race this week here to comment on her campaign is the first major Democrats have throw her hat in the ring. Senator Elizabeth Warren. See you. Thank you. Thank you so much for being here. Are you excited about your campaign? I haven't been this excited since I found out my package from L had shipped.

Released it same basically that she wouldn't does not believe that the capital will be secure enough during the state of the union speech because of the government shutdown because they had to furlough people choose she says well wouldn't be safe enough. So please don't come to the capital to give you state of the union speech. You could submit it in writing if you want or you could maybe give it from the Oval Office. But basically, she disinvited President Trump to his own state of the union it's causing quite a stir. And right now, the president has a number of options it's unclear whether policy will actually go through on her threat. But I, but I believe it will backfire seriously honor she tries to pull this thing off. It's a stunt. Basically. A you know, let's be honest thinking they can secure the capital they have enough secret service to secure the capital for the state of the union. It will be it will be very safe there. But by the way. Go ahead. Sorry, say it's been reported that before she wrote the letter she never contacted the department of homeland security or the secret service to get some guidance from them as too much of a problem that would occur. I believe it's scheduled for January twenty twenty nine. Yeah. Normally that's eight o'clock at night. So I don't know. I mean, she's if he says, hey, I'm coming to the capital. What's he gonna do refuse to sit there doors? The doors. Maybe that would be quite a scene of President Trump cards to come to the capital and says I'm coming to give my speech whether I'm wanted or not he marches in maybe maybe there's a lock doors. Maybe maybe he gives a speech from the steps of the capitol outside or maybe he goes back to the Oval Office and gives them the speech from the Oval Office. I think that will benefit him it will make the Democrats look kind of petty. If they lock him out, and like they're responsible for the shutdown. I would hope from from their perspective of cooler heads would would prevail. But I I don't know the the the the the language today. I think she basically wanted to another free headline. She saw her picture in the herald and said, hey, I got another idea. Phone calls for Joe bat and fell to the Boston Herald his column today, if you didn't read it essentially lays out, the theory of a so-called presidential historian, this fellow Allah Lichtman, by the way, you meant made mentioned I think in the column that he himself had some political aspirations ran for the United States Senate in Maryland. He ran for Senate in Maryland. And got exactly one point one seven percent of the vote. Almost two percent of the vote. Yeah. But you know, he I think he went to jail or something gear for protesting during the during his campaign. It was a very odd campaign, obviously, not a very good politician themselves. Yeah. I don't know about that one. I know he's a fact that was a faculty member perhaps still is at American University as as difficult as it was the night that he and I were on the phone, and it wasn't. We were nasty to each other just that it was kind of a disagreeable conversation. I was asking him some honest questions, and I think he suspected that my questions had ulterior motives, so I've never heard anything about him spending any time in Stirrup for a protest or whatever. But hey in this day and age there are a lot of people good people who have on on a matter of principle spent a couple of nights in prison. Let in jail I should say let me go to the phones. Joe, let's get folks to talk with you. You can talk to me, Dan Rae or more poli talk to my guest Joe bat and felt columnist extraordinary for the Boston Herald by the. The way the herald has some great columnists Jacqueline Kasmin, Hillary shebab, of course, Howie Carr and others as well as great sports columnist as well. Let's go to genie in Brockton, Jeannie. How are you? I'm well. Thank you. How are you? Dan. I'm great. You you share the name of my wife? Her name is, gene. But I don't call her genie. You while you're on the ringcentral nightside Connell line, Jeannie. How are you? Go ahead. At evening show. I I think that if I woke up in the morning, and I heard that it was Madame President over the radio. I would literally vomit. I don't hold back. Now. Ginny tell us what you really think. Listen to the television at night. And I know that I'm listening to one perspective versus another. But all I hear from the Democrats is rhetoric. It's like divide in the same bus. Is speaking the same speeches Trump's made so many positive changes. They don't even take the time knowledge. One of them. What's the most positive change genie that you'd like to point out you've got the microphone? Go ahead. Well. The one. Okay, I run employment rate, really low. I mean, historically low. I mean, they don't even acknowledge that do you? Travels a lot. Let me ask you. Do you give President Obama a little credit for that as well? No, oh, come on. Spreading rajini. But anyway. I cried when he got elected to a second term. So so did Mitt Romney. I love your spirited. And I love I love you call and do you you just getting to the government shutdown for a second. I don't know if you're affected by it, directly or indirectly. How do you think that's going to play out politically? You know, I think that I think it's a tough top- call because you've got people that a really hard like I heard a report on the news this morning about the mentally disabled man can't even go to work, and they can't pay their rent, and it's so many stories about the coastguard. I feel very sad for those people that they're a victim of Cirque every consequence of this. But I think that Trump is doing the right thing holding his ground because I think this is a political game. And I feel that the democrat. Hello. Humor. Look like some sick twisted. Mary couple on the podium that it does. They looked to me. I want to talk. They look to me like American gothic. The only thing that was missing was a pitchfork. It did. It really did. Look like a twisted version of it. Yeah. Really, humid didn't know whether to smile or grimace or avert the his stare. It was it was rough. It was rough JD alive. You call keep calling. Nightside. Well, you thank you very much. I will have a great night. We got. Take it easy. Thanks jaydee. Joey have great callers here on the show. I'll tell you people are very very funny. Very very entertaining. They they make the show not not me. That's for sure the guest in the end, the call is we'll take some more phone calls for Joel bat and fell to the Boston Herald, Dan Rae back at work after a few nights off. Thank you very much again to Jordan, rich and Marissa Morita to Franko love to get your reaction to Joe's article in the Boston Herald today of perhaps a Pelosi presidency. We will have a woman president. I don't think it will be Nancy Pelosi, and I hope we'll have one in my lifetime. We might speculate a little bit on who that person might be. I don't think it will be Elizabeth Warren, by the way. Although now, this is so many women running for president on the democratic side. And it looks to me like between. Lisbeth Warren, Kamala Harris is going to be going to be jumping in. The the congresswoman from Hawaii congresswoman Gabbara Tulsi Gabbard, very interesting person veteran who criticized Dianne Feinstein, and and others for some comments that Feinstein had made about dogma. We'll we'll make it to that as well. But I want to continue with Joe six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine to nine thirty coming right back on.

"Streaming outta their condos and their mansions on brattle street. And I just happened to catch them singing. Very happy. Very very happy. Well, again, Lichtman is one of these guys. I forget where he was a professor I think it was a professor for while. And maybe he still is at American University. And I guess my my from what I had him on the show. He was irascible because it was whenever you challenged him at all on his premonitions or his predictions, or whatever they were called, and you tried to pin him down. He was not very definitive if you get my drift. Right, right. But I have to say look as maybe as theory is a lot of Democrats believe in it. They really do. They really think that Trump is going to be convinced that Trump is going to be a peach. Of course, that's almost a given. And then you have to get rid of Mike Pence somehow out of this scenario. Sure, they figure well. Well, if Trump was impeach that means pinch must've known of his crimes high crimes and misdemeanors or tried to cover up the high crimes or collusion with Russia. Maybe for aiding and abetting just being on the ballot with Trump. He was somehow engaged in a conspiracy. We could find some at least former FBI agents to promulgate that idea. That's not that. What's pets has gone? So it was it was actually that. You wrote a column for I think it was roll call the public. Publication down in DC. And I noticed that it was chaired thousands and thousands of times, obviously by Liberal Democrats were intrigued by the idea of Nancy Pelosi becoming president or we're hoping hoping that's going to be the case. Well, again, a lot of folks there. It actually happens. This always hope there's always hoping as I said when I was in Cambridge this morning, and I just happened to have my trustee tape-recorded with me that people were streaming out of the apartment buildings thrilled. I think that they didn't read the sub-headline. I think all they read was looked at it. Like, I did a Madam President. And they thought it was a done deal. Joe? Let's do this. Let's see what average Bostonians average New England is your average Americans who are listening right now. Think of the prospect of Madame Pelosi becoming president look Germany has Merckel England has made Theresa May the French heaven. Ha you would think the French would have had a female president before us, but Nancy Pelosi. She's a spry I think she is she eighty at this point. She. Let's so nearly okay. She's she's a septuagenarian. She's not quite yet. But but she I'm sure would instill a real youth movement within the Democratic Party area. When you think about it amongst most of the folks who are declaring when you think about, you know, Bernie who I'm sure we'll declare Joe Biden. Elizabeth warren. She represents a fresh face and one of the younger members of the Democrats. And we also want to talk about her. I'm not sure if it was a suggestion or a directed today about the president about when he should time. His state of the union address my guest Joe bat and felt the Boston Herald Joe wrote a great piece this morning. Caught my I hope it caught yours love to hear from you. If you woke up some day and found that both Trump and Pence were gone and Madame Pelosi was then the president of the United States. Would you feel good about that love to hear what you have to think? And particularly if you're listening tonight in Cambridge or any of the more liberal quarters, please feel free to take a little bit of a victory lap. Six one seven two five four ten thirty look at that. Rod I remembered the number triple eight nine two nine ten thirty six one seven two five four ten thirty. If you like to talk to a real life columnist for the Boston Herald one of Boston's too great newspapers, you are more than welcome to join the conversation, the concept of Nancy Pelosi as the president of the United States.

"Host Joe bat and fell joining us now live from Washington, Kimberly Atkins are Washington columnist here. At the Boston Herald, Kim, thanks very much for joining us here. Thanks for having me here before we get into the house, speaker's fight. We were just watching on CNN. Would it seems to be some breaking news where Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were meeting with Trump in the Oval Office? And it was it seemed like a very contentious meeting. They were talking about Trump was talking about threatening to shut down the government over this border security fight. What do you what do you know about that? What's going on? Now. I mean that was pretty extraordinary. I mean, you saw the president veering back and forth between saying how well Republicans and Democrats are working together the bipartisan way, and you get the long along with Chuck an empty. He calls the democratic leaders in the Senate and house and in the in the next moment, you know, essentially. On camera bickering between Trump and empty. Yeah. Yeah. Pelosi Pelosi at one point said, let's not have this debate in front of the press. And I'm like, yes. No. Let's let's let's definitely have the debate in front of the press. This is great. And you have you know, telling, you know. Schumer that it's it's the Democrats who shut down the government. But then admitting that he would shut down the government. I mean, it was it was extraordinary. And it was quite the introduction of what the next two years will be like with divided government in Washington. We got a little preview. Yes. Kind of battles that are going to be playing out. Yeah. Except except that they don't have the power now, and that could affect the government shutdown. If Trump does this before the end of the year before Democrats take over you think he's really serious about doing this. The president has threatened before. This is something that quite honestly if he's talking about this. Not talking about the Mueller investigation, or he's not talking about the fact that his choice for chief of staff, basically left in at the altar this week. So this is why hit focuses on that. But at the same time, the wind right now, given all those other things that are going on and to have the government shutdown in the final weeks where all the we're both the legislature and the White House are controlled entirely by Republicans would not be a good look for him. And that the Democrats know that and I think that's why Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer pretty dug in on their positions and negotiating the funding Bill. This is all about the border wall. Is that what Trump is wholly? Yeah. I would y listening to it. I want to go back to the transcript and literally count the number of times, he said wall. Wall wall wall over and over again, and you know, at one point Nancy Pelosi, you know, say well, you know, I don't want to do a check here. But you know, what you're what you're calling the wall to wall. What we're trying to do here. We're trying to come to an agreement to keep the funding to keep the government open. But that was Trump campaign promise in that's the one the biggest unfulfilled campaign promises. He made when he was running for president. And he's trying to in a very short window of time get something there, but not enough leverage to get any democrat can on that at all. And there's a lot of pressure on Democrats to oppose this border security plan or wall, or whatever you wanna call it. Because a lot of liberal interest groups now are involved saying don't cave on this. Don't don't support any funding at all for what could be construed as a wall? Yeah. And particularly on the Senate side in some folks told me that there was some concern that Chuck's humor might be willing to commute on this a little bit and Nancy Pelosi, and how Democrats really have to sort of move to no mobilizes say, no, no, there's no there's no place for movement on this. We are holding firm here. There's nothing that they can give you the not there. There was floating some ideas that Republicans made back some. Deportation relief from dreamers in order to sweeten the deal. And they said, no, that's not. That's not what they're they're not going to consider that in a CR that the negotiator for a broader immigration packets. But right now, they're not letting on this no matter what. Yeah. I I can't imagine that that this is good news. Good for Trump because people ordinary people don't understand. It's like, what are you doing shutting down the government? It's like you're the one who shut down the government is right before Christmas. People are going to be laid off all kinds of places are going to be closed, and it's not a good look, right. And it's a partial shutdown, but the number one place that this partial shutdown would hit would be the department of homeland security and immigration and customs enforcement. That he's talking about when it when it comes to this wall, it'll affect everything from people traveling over the holidays with TSA. I mean, it's the worst possible. It will be the worst possible outcome for Donald Trump right literally days before quit now, let's we're going to be following that closely, of course, in the coming days, you are going to be following that closely in the coming days, I want to get back to the house speaker's fight. If there is still a fight going on. I did a call today on Stephen Lynch being the latest dictate the latest to cave and join the Pelosi team after being one of two Massachusetts Democrats to be part of this Pelosi mutiny, all of a sudden he's now switching sides and saying oh policy would be great after all is this. This kind of thing that can only happen in Washington where you have somebody who still oppose then all of a sudden meets with Pelosi gets a few. I mean, he he honestly didn't even really get very much out of the deal. He claims that he got some agreement for her to address the concerns of average working families some nebulous thing like that. But it was really just him trying to save zone. But wasn't it? Look, I think from the beginning when this list of lawmakers that was released by this insurgency, led by folks, like congressman set Malkin when this letter I dropped it seemed pretty underwhelming because it was fewer people who are opposing Pelosi publicly than folks were both stating that they had that point one. It didn't include the person who at the time was the only potential challenger Tupelo mind. She's not running against, Marcia fudge, Martha fudge who stuck her own deal with people. Yemen ship. And then now it's fully supporting her other people who we've seen in the Pat even as recently as two years ago, we thought congressman Lynch say he had concerns about flirty he thinks that there needs to be new leadership, and then sort of back off of that. And so this seems to be a repeat of that we've seen several people from now. That they've had their concerns rate with an opening of negotiations with Pelosi for whatever it was for. Whether it was for committee assignments, or speaker ships are an shits chairmanship, mom or other pieces of legislation that would be camping under other sweeteners that they could get in order to backers. With seems that the the opposition the public opposition was rather soft anyway. And it's really hard to see, you know, it's not over until the final vote is taken. But it's hard to say at this point how she does not when I think I think the performance today only because the Democrats now that they need somebody who's going to stand up to Donald Trump. And at one point Nancy Pelosi, literally said to him, you know, in so many words don't mess with me. He noted the number of house pickups in the midterm races and her leader to your own leadership. And basically all Trump pushed him back with her own experience in that something that Democrats are looking for. So I think she probably it herself a favor today. And I gotta give Pelosi credit on this on this insurgency how she's handled it. She very good. You know, she met with individual members privately and just slowly peeled off the forces one by one that were opposing her. And she didn't really lose anything out of it. She didn't have to really, you know, she gave a few extra chairmanships or whatever away a committee assignments things like that. But Lynch how how much endanger was he of losing some of his seniority positions. If he continued. I mean, if you continue to oppose Pelosi that it turned out she did win the speaker's gavel. I mean, he was he was a little gentlemen. Thank. I mean, he he's a subcommittee chairman in the end, you know, everybody has delivered in this fight. And I think that was one of the things that he was aware of and just like with other members of the house. It's. It's. Folks. Call congressman molten safe seat, Milton that he's pretty he's in a position that he can kind of battles without really facing. The blowback. An insurgent defeated democratic incumbent. He went in from the beginning not trying to play the game to align with Pelosi. He was against her from start. So he's coming at it from a different place in a lot of other members in the delegation, who, you know. No, no, what the writing on the wall is. But also, frankly some folks just want to move Pappas site and move forward look forward into the next year. And they really wanna put this internal internal debate behind them. Yeah. I think it's a bad. Look for the Democratic Party if the battle continues to be going on, especially if Nancy Pelosi look strong like she did in this meeting with Trump today, they really need to put this behind them. I mean, it's great for us. I say I'll I'm all for the insurgency anything that generates good stories for us. But I gotta give us a little credit here to even. Though, he fears to be on the losing side. He he's still is sticking to his guns. I haven't heard anything you haven't heard anything about him. Katie I'm gonna have you don't expect him to. I mean, I expect the captain on the floor just that he did for the leadership race two years ago. My Nancy Pelosi was being challenged. I don't expect that to change. And he he's not really in jeopardy of losing much. Anyway, he's a relatively junior member of the house. He doesn't have any committee chairmanships sub committee chairmanships or anything like that. To lose. And it looks like one of those guys that I don't think he's going to be a lifer. The way some of these representatives are who just wanted to stay in the house forever that he might run for higher office some day for Senate or something. So it looks like he's in a different position than other members are, but but so they'll they'll probably be no blowback to him or in jeopardy of losing funding for some key projects that he wants that kind of thing. I don't think so I think he the the reason that he's able to do this because he was in a safer position to do. So and that's where they stand right now. Right. And so you expect an coming year the beginning of the year that I mean policy still has to get to the two hundred eighteen votes. She's still needs a majority. So even if a small number of house members hold out it could make that a little close. But. You don't you think? I mean, she could be she could continue to peel off opposition members in the coming days to. Look, I think the last several weeks have been an example of why Nancy Pelosi is the leader of the house. She's been doing this a long time. She's very good at it. Very good at negotiating. He's very good at using the levels levers of power at her disposal. Dan, the sticks to get what she wants. And I think we've seen a very brilliant display of doing just yes, I agree..

"All right. Welcome back to that. And fell. This is your host Joe bat and fell we had Clinton Paul Frey democratic candidate for governor on just a few minutes ago. Always interesting to hear from the politicians on election day. It's nerve wracking day for them think about think about having your name on the ballot being judged by millions of people and ultimate it's kind of the ultimate test in your self esteem and self because. It can't be it can't be pretty to have a lot of people voting against you in voting for the other. You think back maybe ran for class president or something back in high school, and that was probably that. But tougher these candidates out there. Six one seven two eight six five six three three. If you have any election day stories. I appreciate hearing from hearing from you six one seven two eight six five six three three. We've got to have. State rep Geoff Diehl, the Republican candidate for US Senate coming on in just a moment. He's running against Elizabeth Warren, the incumbent democratic Senator it's been a hard nosed campaign for for Geoff Diehl and for Elizabeth Warren kind of curious that didn't see a lot of Warren. Activity out of the polls when I was out of the Paul's not a lot of Warren activity. Not a lot of Warren signs. Really? It's been mostly saw the Baker signs. Charlie Baker signs and Jay Gonzalez signs, but and other candidates other local candidates, but haven't seen a huge strong presence from Elizabeth Warren out of the campaign. Maybe she's out in Ohio today or something like that. I don't know. But. No, she didn't even run any TV at as far as a network TV ads, which is kind of a curious decision. She's got tons of money certainly millions and millions of dollars. But we haven't seen too much presence from her and we've got somebody. Now, we're going to ask about that. Geoff Diehl Republican candidate for US Senate, Jeff thanks very much for joining us here on patent felt great to be with you. Tell us how your election day has been so far. It's gotta be exciting and also nerve wracking to. Well, I've been through this four times with my state rep races and very happy to win those races. And of course, the first time was the hardest. But it's kind of like that, you know, it's yes. Out of your hands to settling in that respect. But today what we're doing is going from polling station to polling station and thanking supporters everywhere across the state for the work. They've done to get us to this point you whether it was the. Convention what we went overwhelmingly, whether it was the primary we went overwhelmingly now, you know, obviously, a very tough regime, and I we're just excited we think the chances out there to win this race. And we're working hard relieving nothing on the table. You said your opponent. Maybe it's taking for granted that she's going to when she has one event today, and that was to vote that was her one event physicians got an election party later on. But she you know, she hasn't been running TV ads. It's very curious decision on her part. She certainly has enough money to. Sure. Look, I'm not sure I understand any of this strategy releasing the video about her DNA didn't seem to make sense, of course, being out of state and traveling around the country these last several months, obviously, making statements about law enforcement, the criminal Justice system. Very negative has an altar. So, you know, she's made a lot of decisions that don't make sense. I think that going gonna play what happens today are active in there that this race. You. I think that's the primary. I think we're a lot more voters pulling the public and ballots than people expected. I think that translates over into this general election to. Yeah. And a lot of Democrats who were blanking the ballot. So. What do you have any election day traditions, as maybe a family that you do a lot of people? I used to go out to lunch with Joe Moakley. Remember joke lead the late late congressman? It was great. We had a great tradition. We go out to park every election day, and he'd regale us with his stories of election day, and it was pretty fun. Do you have any election day traditions? Yes. It for first place. I go is a called Martin's restaurant in Addington. And there's the owner. His name's Fred takes a picture of me standing under a pot that JFK once stood under back back in the day. Yeah. I have my breakfast. I read my herald there, I'm not just talking the herald for. I really do read the herald there, and then I go to Holy Ghost church and Whitman they have a chapel that's open early in the morning. I go to a quick prayer. I go home and pick. My wife up. We go to the polling station in Whitman. And and then at that point I travel around used to be with you. The three towns to thank the volunteers. Now, of course, a lot more stops to go around and thank people. Yeah. I used to take my kids out to vote to the voting station with me there are a little older now. But they they enjoyed that. They joined the free cookies, these usually usually some kind of bake sale or something like that, you know, at the at the polling station. So I love election days. I think it's great for democracy. What's your what's been your final mess to say? If you run into an undecided voter, what's your final pitch. Well, I mean, one of the things I want them to know is that I am committed to the next six years of working for the issues facing Massachusetts. I know Senator to one, you know, it's very likely, in fact, highly probable that you know, if she were to be reelected, she would immediately start working on a campaign for the White House. And that really doesn't give us a seat at the table down in Washington, we need someone focused on the issues like healthcare costs like the opioid crisis. You know, like making sure that unfortunate forty in trying to get criminals off the streets. And so those are some of the things I I let them know about plus my track record of the work on the question two thousand fourteen where we stop the gas tax from going up every year without a vote, and we saved taxpayers a lot of money businesses. A lot of money. You know, my track record is trying to make sure the government's efficient and accountable, and I want to do that in Washington. And of course, the last thing I want to say too is that I think Danny Washington is so negative and divisive. I think they need a voice it's reasonable. And that's something I've tried to be on beacon hill. I'm looking forward to doing that for six years down in Washington. Yeah. There's all this talk about a Blue Wave and everything. But you know, it's hard to tell whether that will actually materialize. The polls were wrong. Two years ago, and certainly they could be wrong again. And that's what you got to count on five words. Right. Hillary Clinton in a landslide. I think that was the. That was predicted the morning of in two thousand sixteen. Yep. You're right right about that. Have you been following the national races too much you've been focused on your own race pretty much? I mean, there's a lot of a lot going on Ted Cruz in a big race and a lot of Republicans badly for the seats. Democrats some Democrats they're going to lose their seats. I believe too. So does I think it'd be a lot of turnover from what I understand? I mean, my guess is that the Senate remains in Republican control one thing that of course, benefits. The when I go down to Washington, I'll be in a majority party more leverage for delivering for the state house is obviously really a tough one. I think is it stays in Republican hands. It's by very very very slim margin. If it does flip a democrat doesn't mean that that's a bad thing. I mean, I think it also allows for Democrats to have a little bit more say in policy, and I don't think that's such a bad thing, especially being on beacon hill, and knowing that with Republicans that I've been serving that type. I always have a voice with the democrat supermajority nice every now and then to have both parties actually started being forced to work together. I think that's that's not the worst case scenario. Yeah. I certainly hope we don't see just permanent gridlock. If that's the case. But have you? Any anecdotes from the polls that you could do a big turnout. What have you seen as far as turnout today? Well, again from what I'm hearing. And I mean, what is seen is plenty of traffic coming out of the poll, nothing really new in the suburbs. What people are telling me some texts is that getting you know, the usual thumbs up for me with signs. I really hard to tell right now until some hard numbers come in later in the evening. I think generally those speaking, despite the weather does seem to be stopping a lot of traffic to and from the polls. I started in Stoughton at town spa pizza. It's a pretty famous luncheon place in everybody coming in to grab their lunch said already voted for you. You know? So I I think everybody's taking it very seriously. It's not like, you know, I know presidentials have more turn out, right? Djerma governors years are a little bit lower. I would say though, the enthusiasm still is pretty pretty high. Yeah, it's very similar to a presidential election year as far as I can tell not quite not quite the activity, but very similar, and I gotta say I was out at the polls in west Roxbury. Governor Baker was out there. I think you're going to be going out there later, you have a big presence healthier signs and supporters. I was surprised because that you'd think Boston is a democratic area. But you know, you hoping to win some went over some democratic votes. Well, I'll tell you first of all the Lord Mayor of Roxbury, which he had all the time for me if you weeks ago, I think I think south the west Roxbury. Those areas Dorchester we've been spending a lotta time in there because a lot of law enforcement, I live there. They were not happy. Of course with warns comment about criminal Justice system painting. Everybody is racist. And I think that's translated to some support in the area on top of that Irish Catholic Democrats that I think you'll like Elizabeth winds pushed that party so far to the left progressively that. It doesn't represent their values in general. So I think that they're looking for a change. And I think I've always tried to present myself as someone who's willing to support, you know, good ideas on beacon hill, regardless of party. And I think that's something they were open to and I think that's translated to what in Suffolk County that I think is gonna actually help bring a lot of people away. And we've been looking at the state's barnstable county looks good Bristol County, which includes New Bedford river, of course, new Bedford's been ignored by Senator Warren, the fishing industry. Feels like he's completely giving them a pass. And of course, the county. Worcester county, we feel very good counties. And so for us. You know, I it's going to be turned out, of course. But also, I think areas like Suffolk County in west Roxbury. Like, you just mentioned specifically are going to surprise a lot of people. Well, I have to say that you have run, you know, when I consider to be a good campaign. It's been tough. Obviously, you're going against the Elizabeth Warren machine she has millions and millions of dollars. But I have to say that you have done a good job at getting your message out. And it's not an easy thing in a state like Massachusetts when you were a Republican. But, you know, even the polls suggest, you know, Warren getting only a little over fifty percent of the vote. So it certainly has not been that impressive a for her so far. And I think a lot of that is due to your message that you're hammering home that you know, Warren has not been around that she's been running for president. Instead of you hearing that from people as well. Yeah. I mean, look, I think he's one of the top things. People say. Loyalty in in Massachusetts. I think is something that people really pick up on whether it's loyalty to your sports team. Whether it's little teacher, your politician that represents your district, and I think Elizabeth Warren she spent a lotta time over the last six years writing books about ourselves going around the country trying to promote yourself to make this one for the White House..

"Afternoon everybody and welcome to baton fell. This is your host Joe bat and fell the next hour. We'll be talking about politics all the latest hottest issues. Day. Joining me for part of the time this week as my special guests, John Chetty gone. Thank you very much for being here or south as we call them. We just I like sap Vetter plus better be referred to as a special guest. And then I have to make sense. Special guests special guest because your show is doesn't start till one o'clock. And so you are my guest. Part of the time. Anyway. Show, and I'm happy to happy that you're here. We have some breaking news, Nikki Haley, UN ambassador announcing she's stepping down at the end of the year her and Trump announced that and she had to go with the I'm not running in twenty twenty two but how about Nikki Haley? How 'bout? Nikki here I wanted to talk about what do you think? Nikki Haley on the ticket on the Republican ticket instead of Mike Pence. I think that's a possibility right because now she's resigning effective at the end of the year. And I think that someone that is really had a good relationship with President Trump, and maybe President Trump would be one of those rare candidates that when he runs for reelection decides to change his running mate. And I don't know we've heard rumors that Mike Pence may have been the person who wrote the piece in the New York Times months ago, if the president feels that key Haley's already denied that exactly you could throw a million names out there who would may have been. I mean, we could have been chief of staff John Kelly. I've heard ambassador Russia, Jon Huntsman was a potential person who wrote bed. So who knows? But maybe the president says Mike Pence is the person. So he's not loyal to me. So we look forward to twenty twenty. And then if he wins reelection in two thousand twenty then it kind of puts. Nikki Haley in place to run in two thousand twenty four right at the top of the ticket. So that's why I want to buy the domain for twenty twenty four which I think would be Haley Rubio. Haley rubio. Yes, no. We don't want. We don't want a sticker with. No, no. I don't think. So. No. I don't think that's idea. I think it'd be a good idea. He has his own problems political problems too. I think doesn't he? He's been really quiet. Yes. Since the election. I also such a disastrous failure. That's why it's almost like he still hasn't recovered from Trump. I know you've got abused and used by Trump. Like a quarterback sack way too many times. Flaky Haley, Charlie Baker. Couple of governors. Yeah. Right. You know? That would be interesting. I don't think I don't think that would happen. I'm going to start looking at these domains Joe. So we can make some money. We have. One is already outdoor. I'm sure the Baker Baker people probably bought it knowing them they probably bought with potential running mates for him in two thousand twenty four right, right? But Nikki Haley, it would be an intriguing candidate for vice president would give Trump a woman there. An ethnic woman. She's the daughter of Indian immigrants and. I think I think it would add a lot to the ticket. I don't think it's going to happen. But I think we can talk about it and speculate about whether it'd be better for Trump to stick with Pence. Would it would it piss people off too much push the loyal base off because the loyal basis big fan of Mike Pence. He can be a real he's a real favorite among conservatives, especially Christian conservative because he's he's someone that they really like a lot. So you don't want to anger them. Also, the fact that you know. Nikki Haley again, he could soften himself by having a woman ticket with him. After what has happened even with the judge cavenaugh proceedings. So that could be something that he's looking forward to do. I often thought that the next are the only the first woman president was going to be conservative really more. So than a liberal, and I think that's Nikki Haley, I if I was a betting at least say the the the first female president, I think thinking Haley would be the favourite in Vegas at this point because I don't expect Hillary Clinton to run again in twenty twenty. Although we never know she she say announced. On a world tour encounter on. I would not counteract eight million votes. You can talk about how she lost this. You sound like a Hillary supporter got six..

"Now there is someone up, to, no good somewhere. Boston Herald reporter is aware The Boston Herald Welcome back everybody to. Bat and fell this is your host Joe bat and feld We've just been. Talking to Beth Lindstrom Republican candidate for, US, Senate, talking about the, primary coming up the. Big battle there between Beth Lindstrom Geoff Diehl and John Kingston three candidates for Senate and I think a lot of that race is going to depend on who is seen as. The best candidate or most electable against against Elizabeth Warren at least that's what Bethlehem watch the race to hinge on. Who is the most electable so that you have, that people have those voters concerned about, who's the. Best candidate who can actually defeat Elizabeth Warren and then you have another view from, voters a group, of voters, who view it well no we want we want. To support who support who is the biggest supporter of President Trump and so if you look, at it that way who's the biggest supporter of President Trump that's easy that's Geoff Diehl Geoff Diehl. Was the co chairman of Trump's campaign, in, twenty, sixteen and he, is you know obviously. Closely closely most closely linked to President Trump so if you're looking for somebody who most closely represents President Trump and his values and his Stance on issues Then you're going to want to vote. For Geoff Diehl so we had battle going on between most electable and Who's who is who is strongest for. President Trump and Republican voters are going to decide that And whoever wins that battle within the race sort of is going to go a long way to determining whether Republicans have a chance to beat Elizabeth Warren Do you think any?.
