"He's sitting at fifty two percent approval rating, and that Pogos way back it's daily presidential tracking poll that is consistent. And if you look at it, it's very consistent with Obama, George W Bush, and the fact that he's had been hit so hard for. From all directions. The media the liberal left the collusion idea. The he's a racist. The building of the wall. The fact he's sitting fifty two percent means that something's going right in the middle of America. Not the far, right? Not the far left, but to you and half years ago. You would have never thought that the liberal left would be passing abortion bills or even talking about the type of abortion bills or passan? You would never think the green new deal would be an issue or even in conversation, look at New Mexico, and what's happening with them. So a lot of change since we've been with since we've had our show. Yeah main. I think it is surprising to a lot of people that if if there were ever a time in I started Showtime locally at there were ever a time for like Lubbock county. Democratic Party to begin to appeal to the middle. Now's the time in but you keep like we keep waiting for. Right. And I mean, you know after this. I think I'm done waiting. I don't think you do you do wait because when you have the type of voices that are out there. I mean, look at the New York congresswoman, I won't even say our name, you know, when she tweets something, she has fifty thousand plus lions, see AO, see, and she puts out this green new deal and the Hawaii Representative gets on national television the next day in his interviews. And they're like, you know, the tourism and air travel to your state your island is important. I never thought about that. But she still on the right track because of the emissions. Yeah. Base upon the air traffic, but they continue to fly their private jets and fly airplanes and go to all of their rallies. Beddoes rallying in El Paso. Oh, and they fly home to Hawaii. There's just such a hypocrisy amongst the party when it when it starts to fall far leftist as if it would if it fell far, right? You know in the Republican party, which Republicans have and I think we're Trump is winning in wise his approval ratings where it is is because after the elections November..

"Run campaign. He even ran ads from this radio. They never asked me for permission. But they ran ads. Yeah. My show about what a disaster. She was right. No. I saw the ads. No. But that shit that was identity politics get away from the identity politics. Let's get character, competency, and charisma. Let's get candidates that have those characteristics. And who cares if they're black white Christian, Muslim, Brown, Latino, whatever whatever is praying. At the Lubbock county or Lubbock sitting, you know, if they got character charisma incompetence more power to them. Let's get them regardless of their gender. Any of that kind of stuff? We need candidates that have those qualities, and so part of what I have to do is is I have to identify those people in our community that have those qualities that also have the same values that we have in the Democratic Party, and we need to you know, we need to be encouraging those people to get involved and growing those people within the democrat. So you just said you personally speaking is that not a feeling within the the mainstream of the Lubbock county Democratic Party. No, that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying that I'm giving my personal opinions. And I'm not speaking on behalf of the of the party proper. You've had meetings since the election. Sure is that a fair sampling of what you're saying. No, that's that's my. Personal tirade that. I just went on. Yeah. That's not. So then I would think you as chairman or saying, hey, guys, we've got to begin to appeal to the middle. We have an opportunity here. And maybe that is or is not being hurt. Lubbock is a very unique place. It's it's it's a. Lubbock presents a number of challenges. We had one candidate in the last election who was dyed in the wool Bernie Sanders. Democrat we had another candidate who was more of a Jon tester much more conservative democratic candidate. Our are Bernie Sanders candidate lost forty percent to.

"Have on the air with us. John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chairman people take offense to. Democrats being called democratic they to say, the Lubbock county democrat party talked to us about parlance there. I have no idea where that comes from people. Tell me that Rush Limbaugh is the one that started that I'm old enough. I remember the world before Rush Limbaugh. And and back whenever I was in college, the professors would complain about that sort of thing. I don't I really complain that it should be called democratic or democrat both. Okay. Because unlike what a lot of Republicans believe when you go to college, and you're in the political science department. They aren't all raving liberals, you've got conservatives in the political science departments to and I would have conservative professors that would insist that you call it democrat, and I'd have liberal professors, call it democratic you insist on just whatever comes out of my mouth grad democratic I get some of my some people will will correct me at times because I happen to make the mistake of saying. Democrat at times, but democratic Democratic Party. I I don't say democrat party at that sounds kind of silly. I would say Democratic Party. I mean, but it's it's semantic quibbles. I don't I don't get caught up in those kinds of games. Yeah. Okay. So I tried to get you caught up in that game. But you stiff arm there, John Gibson. But you are an attorney sure. Yep. Okay. What do you practice worker's comp? Okay. So guys mostly guys getting injured out in the oilfield. I've got an office. No Desa, and I spent a lot of time out. No Desa, but I love Lubbock. And this is where we raised our family, and this is where I wanna live. But yeah, the injuries the work is out in out in the oilfield. So so, but also you run out of DFW as well from time to time. Yeah, I've got an office in Fort Worth too. So okay. That to say, we don't have just some schlumpy sittin here. You know, it's not like it's not like there's a guy who just ran for Democratic Party chair who doesn't really do anything. I mean, you're an accomplish your accomplished within your profession. I'm. I'm blessed to have good clients that have given me some good cases and had some good success with that. So what's the way forward? John. Are we going to see the Democratic Party because you know, I say this all time we rave on in the program in always say, I'm non adherent. I'm not a devout adherent, I vote Republican, but I'm not a devout adherent to either party. And I think a lot of people listening program. I'm thirty nine people who are younger than me who if we go through and we look at the demographics and who's listening to the podcast. I think it'll show that the not devout adherents either in. I think a lot of people are wondering what this Lubbock county Republican party do. Now, we can critique Beto all day long. But in day moss by less than three points. Does the Lubbock county Democratic Party look that is cute run further to the left. Or run more to the middle. You know, I don't know with respect to the state party. I can tell you that here locally. I think that one of the reasons why I got elected was because I am more of a moderate. And I think that we were elected win. I think June. I think okay. So this is before all the November hullabaloo area. Yeah. But anyway, yeah. Here. Locally the problem that we have is. We've got thirty percent versus seventy percents. I mean, that's just the fact and we can slowly over time road that thirty percent or erode the seventy percent and gain numbers off the thirty percent. But what the Democratic Party here is primarily right now as a watchdog for the Republicans. And so yeah, I want to see my Republican legislators do well because I live in this community. And I like you I'm somebody who believes in the politics of place, and I want my Republican legislators to have success for the south plains. You know, Bob Duncan. I know Bob Duncan. He's a he's a good guy thought he did a really really good job state Senator is pointed at his campaign side. Yeah, you've got you've gotta sign here. There were times when I disagreed with what Senator Dunkin might have have, you know, legislated. However, I appreciated the fact that he was a statesman..

"There's things like I know that millennials like to drop f bombs right and left, and it's cool for a millennial to do that sort of thing. But you know, it doesn't cost you votes to clean up your language. You don't lose anything. But you see that more as a liability to him than the flag stands prompted when you're only talking about losing by three percent. Every little thing counts. You know, you're talking about something with the flag that might have been a a a it's one of the things that you're gonna make a break you, and I don't think you're gonna get a whole bunch of Republicans to go and say, oh, you know, what I'm gonna vote for Beto. Because now he's or because he's taking a position with the fruits of the flag that I like that's the hard core. Okay. You're talking about the interest people. I think for the interest people you get some little a lady in Arlington, Texas, for instance, who's about. To be in a nursing home. And she hears this drop an f-bomb. She may like him. She may go boy, he looks like like, you know, Bobby Kennedy, and I like that guy. But then he says something that offends her will then she's not gonna vote for it or maybe post. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Pose? And and that's just sit you got west of I thirty five where he struggled. I think there are some people within the Democratic Party who look at it and go, well, he didn't get enough Hispanics out. Well, okay. Yeah. That may be one factor too. There are all kinds of different things that could put him over that three percent fresh oil. No, no one single factor. Did it for him? But there are a number of things could have tweet. My view is Hettie tweaked that children fit four county tour and heady cleaned up his language a bit. It would have helped me to make the case for him with with my contact with the people that I regard well in the circles that I run if you've got somebody who's out there dropping f bombs it gets really really hard to go to church and say, hey, this is this is the guy you need to be supporting people are turned off by that. Even though they may like the message, even though they may like a lot of the things he saying it's hard to get over things like that. Yeah. So John Gibson who is the Lubbock county Democratic Party chair. He came in this role. How John e been here since ninety three. So a lot of millennials. You could say I've been here longer than you've been alive. Yeah. But you came in. Roll hal. I sometimes question that myself. I have always been politically active in the sense that in the local people here know this. I was the youngest person ever elected to a countywide office in the Harris County GOP Harris County Republican party that was back when I was in college, my wife, and I were married at the time. When did you get elected to I was the I was on the candidate selection committee. Okay. So like, we've got this guy that we recruited run for district judge there in Harris County that he went on to become attorney general, and and you may know him, Greg Abbott. He's now in the governor's office. You know, that's one of our recruits Ted POE who was recruited for run for judge. And then he was congressman Dan Crenshaw just took his place. I think I'm I'm terrible with names in Crenshaw thinks dozen the patch cabbage. Anyway, did that head sort of a falling out in the sense that? It's the same thing everywhere. I think with the GOP too far to the right? They get a little bit. Theocratic all or you know, you get into these kinds of things where it's just pretty hateful and ugly. And I didn't like that. Anyway, came up here for law school American meal, shoe gal, and she insisted that we come here for law school and bought a house. And so that tied to Lubbock to where I wasn't going to leave and my wife has happy with that. And then in the meantime, I really wasn't really excited about the Republican party here in town because it seemed to be the same way what I'd encountered in Houston and was voting democrat democratic because that was where my values seem to be going..

"It's going to be a conversation Thursday, John Gibson, who is chairman of the Lubbock county Democratic Party gonna be joining us. What's the way forward? A lot of folks who are interested in listening to that is in John Gibson in studio. Get him just a moment. But here's one where we when the kickoff today, the atheists in the city of Lubbock gonna give the invocation. On Thursday night at the Lubbock city council meeting. This from Casey be d Lubbock read some stories. I like kacie b slant the best because it sets me up to hit some T-ball home runs here on the program. Dateline Lubbock, the Lubbock city council agenda Garner's some attention at times. But this week. It's not for what's on the agenda tool. Be speaking during the usual time of prayer known as the invocation. It was announced last fall at a local atheist group would be given would be giving the invocation sometime in January of this year. And now is set in stone that members of the atheist community of Lubbock that's an official group. I've not looked up on Facebook. But it's the atheist community. A Lubbock will be speaking before the city council. Members this Thursday. He'll be led by their communications in public relations director, Tracy benefit. Now, let me go out on a on a branch here in say, I bet she doesn't get paid very much as I say about liberals in the city Lubbock the chairman in studio may disagree with me more aborigines in Lubbock than there are real liberals. And I would think even the less atheists in Lubbock, but Tracy benefit to do the invocation. Quote. We know there's a lot of people in our group who have lost everything when they come out as atheists. So we want to de stigmatize what it means to be atheists said benefit benefits said she will use the time to invoke ideas, invoke invocation. Invoke ideas. Quote, we are most mostly going to be talking about how we need to come together. As a city, we are the friendliest city in America eight that's what's on the billboards can't descru- Benfield there. We need to think about every minority in Lubbock in thinking about how we can work together. So. So every minority is being carried under the banner of the atheists getting the I don't know what how minorities I'm sure if I reached out to a few of them. They would have a problem with being represented by the eighth easiest, but that's what benefits says we need to be thinking about every minority in Lubbock and thinking about how we can work together. The option of having an atheist give the invocation was announced back in the fall. This has had mixed reaction. Now, listen, it was announced back in the fall that the option would be open. I think. In call me whenever you may. But I think the con- the constitution of these United States gives that option I think that that was announced like way back in the eighteenth century that that option would be open quote. It doesn't really stick within the definition of an indication because it is calling to someone else. If you don't believe there is someone else than you're speaking into the air said Jeff MC Reich, pastor of wrought city church. Jeff mcbride. Following local politics as I do fancies himself on being a political thorny on all things. God centered MC right saying that they're just going to speak into mid air. But I don't know how wrong he is there than I wanna read the rest of this. And we'll break it down benefit explained that an invocation doesn't always mean. Prayer quote. Most people are familiar with a prayer being an invocation, but in invocation doesn't mean prayer those words aren't synonymous an invocation simply means to ask someone or something for help mayor Dan pope emits, it was even a little confusing for him. Quote, first question was I really don't understand who atheists pray to but the more I looked into it. My intuition is that constitution protected their rights in the end. He hopes the community finds a way to accept it quote. I think part of west Texas of part of the west Texas value system is that we are not judgmental. We take care of our neighbor. And we love our neighbor, whatever they may believe they Theus community of Lubbock will give the invocation coming up on Thursday, forty eight.

"Eight hundred is we do roll long, but even coaching for how long now I'm into my sixth year. Yeah, it's crazy to think about, but I spent a year at Coronado, and I've been Laura Bush middle school the last five years, which means I get to work pretty closely with Lubbock Cooper high school. Yeah. And are your coach on staff with the with the high school team? Not no, I'm primarily my responsibilities are with Laura Bush and then. The football staff at Lubbock Cooper, who you lead, dodgeball, Laura. Bush pretty much, and then you go work with coaching staff at Lubbock Cooper high. That's probably the fun Florida in Lubbock Cooper, go. I'll we made it to the state quarterfinals this year man, yet furthest they've ever incenting in five and his father small five right now. Yeah. You know, they small three whenever you know, back in eighty two back when a rousing is. Yeah. It was just how how I left it on seven, but that's not the same anymore, but you have thirteen win season. I was the most wins in school history in eighty two years of school history. So it was pretty historic ear. Yeah. Really proud of those. Oh, good. I coached PO as we go along you'll you'll begin to understand why we have coach PO on the program is we roll along illicit. We got this new studio got some questions about this. And I've just texted. Daniel the digital guru who works for other side at Texas to call in about I guess ten minutes. Give us a report on the new studio that we've got for you guys putting together a new studio. We're going to be doing some Facebook lives. We're going to be doing all the interesting content on new really expensive equipment and glad that you've made that a possibility for us to go buy that expensive equipment as well. You know, I was thinking today about prairie populism as always do and yell. We're gonna some coach news coming up where I got some new stories we need to discuss. Okay. We'll get into those as well. But no, I got an Email from our friends Steve Arete, and this what makes me I cannot conform. One hundred percent either part. I honestly. A more line with the Republican platform, but I can understand why our ancestors weren't. Yeah. If I can say it that way. But also on the the democratic platform in I've got to get somebody in from the Lubbock county Democratic Party, tell me what's going on that. Now, the party's just gonna go left when if they went more towards the center, they might pick up a few more votes, especially within our age demographic and younger if you just eased up on all the identity groups in to stuck up for the middle class. I think you might have a better hearing. Yeah. I I mean, I think actually Kanda did what you said you were gonna do in just follow through with it. And maybe maybe pump the brakes a little bit on the crazy stuff. That's right. And then maybe represent the middle class. Maybe that should be like, your platinum and that base in. And then attach different groups to that. There's certainly a lot of votes coming out of that group. Yeah. Votes coming up in my the way, I really do believe. I'm going to get back to to my friends Email, but I really do believe that there were Rourke would be the strongest antidote to Donald Trump. And that's for somebody who voted for Donald Trump in the primary, and the general, but I could for see a scenario where better Rourke rolls his eyes at Donald Trump in a lot of America resonates with that is he's like the I mean, I don't want to downplay them or anything like that. But he's like the new boy band that came along that everybody falls in love with and that he's there, and it's like they enjoy somewhere between boy band and JFK, I guess so and and I think that appears to be pretty genuine and what he's saying. And makes no qualms about skeletons in his closet and. Yeah, which and that's why I say, I think he may be the strongest in the field because I see Hooghly on Castro..
