"How are you? I am good, sir. How are you? Great. Are you covering it all the Georgia Senate races. I mean, you know a little bit. I've been focused mostly on the sort of outgoing and incoming administrations that we have. But following it a bit. Okay. Here is the key. Quote that surface last night from a 2011 sermon by Raphael Warnock. Cut number four America Nobody can serve God on the military. You can't serve God and money. You cannot, sir. God, I'm Maman at the same time America to heat this day whom you will serve. Michael, Do you think that's a significant quote? Look, I don't know that I saw that this morning on Twitter. I don't know the context of it, but I think that, um you know those kinds of sermon. Um, you know, sort of what I think many people would view as over the top kind of rhetoric during these sermons. It's certainly worth Uh, you know, worth understanding worth work? Knowing what he was talking about What he was saying, Um, you know, obviously, there are people in this country. Who would you know who would potentially find that? Disturbing that you know that one would say that you can't serve both at the same time, and I think you know that's what campaign a good campaign by good campaign and the one that really sort of brings out the truth that people that voters Um, you know, can do can can use to make their decision. Ah, good campaign, will, you know well, will not only provide audio clips like that, but provide the context. Behind what that person was talking about. Now, Michael to this morning, I was aware of it last night tweeted about it this morning. It is center right Media has covered it extensively from my show to Twitter to Fox News. There is not one reference in any legacy Media outlet. Not one about the quote this morning. What does that say to you? Well, uh, you know, look, I don't know. I mean, you know, I saw a lot of chatter like I said this morning about you know, the thing that you know, had a It had that quote in from a Republican candidate Republican, you know, hopeful for office that the so called mainstream media would would have covered it extensively. I don't know. I you know again. I'm not Focused on Georgia Senate rates and so I don't know, you know, sort of the particulars of when that came out how that came out. And if it is, um you know, taken out of context. I mean, look, we make choices. Everybody makes choices. Media left right and center makes choices about what to cover. And, you know, sometimes the reason that one doesn't cover something is because you know that it's been taken out of context or it, you know, doesn't really sort of represent. What people claim it does. I don't know The answer to that because I haven't spent any time looking at it, but I you know, but I think if If it wasn't taken out of context, If it really is, you know, said something about what what he believes about. You know about service to God and country like I think it's worth looking into for sure. Do you remember Christine O'Donnell? I am not the devil or Todd taken, or Richard Murdoch's outrageous outside of the mainstream comments and what happened instantly. I do. Yeah, it was like instantly every GOP senator had to comment on them. The president had to come in on them. Everybody had to come. And it was instant, though. That has not happened here. So to me, it says, I just want to hear what? Because you're a very, very good reporter, and you represent legacy media very well. I say here we have proof positive legacy media roots for Democrats, a double standard that is so obvious that it cannot be denied. They jumped down the throat of a Republican candidate when they make a dumber, outrageous comment, And they say nothing when a Democratic candidate is found, have said something outrageous. That's how I feel about it. Look, I I understand that and I don't know whether I don't know enough to agree or disagree about this particular example. What I will remind you of is that as many examples as you could find Of the media, the mainstream media jumping down the throat of Republican I confined you examples in history of Democratic candidates who have been Uh, who have experienced the same thing And not only that, with experience the same thing to the destruction of their campaigns. I mean, you know, you have to look no further than, uh, Joe Biden himself who made you know? You know caps and comments that the media jumped all over that destroyed his some of his presidency. Campaigns. You you could look at that. You know some comments that Barack Obama made in his during his first campaign that were jumped all over so I you know, While I can't I don't know the answer to this particular incident. Um, you know, I think the media history of, um holding people accountable for what they say is, um, you know, has their many examples on both sides of the aisle on that. Okay, we'll follow this through the next news cycle. I just believe in 2020. When it's a 24 hour news cycle to have gone 14 hours ago, Fox News had this up and I was talking about it 17 hours ago. Aunt have nothing anywhere is to me telling with the O'Donnell the bacon in the Murdoch example. Senate candidate, the Senate candidate challenger.

"I have no time to play three W. I. B. C. morning the popcorn moments if the store you need to hear to believe they grab your popcorn because there is more okay I can't believe that I have to defend any clover charm this way but what happened to Amy club which I then nonsense from the moderators in the debate last night it should absolutely make your blood boil because what happened to our is gross there is a moderator by the name of the NASA how she is with Telemundo she gets the chance to ask a question she asks a question regarding any club which are not remembering the name of the president of Mexico she did an interview of Spanish televisions I'm speaking television and she could not remember the name and here's Vanessa how how could you not remember the name the name is am low Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador she for dot in that interview and this moderator wants to know how could you that's that's not it that is not it let me make sure I find it because I don't find it because that was the project that's the part two of it there we go much better and I don't think that the moment here a momentary forgetfulness actually reflects what I know about Mexico and how much I care about it and I first want to say greetings to president over the door secondly what I meant by the game of jeopardy is that I think we could all come up with things you know how many members are there in the Israeli Knesset one hundred twenty who is the president and they were is Hernandez to Mexico I am the one person on this stage came out first to say I was for the U. S. Mexican Canadian trade agreement that is going to be one of the number one duties of a president now the whole jeopardy thing was a mistake from her and her campaign she'd have to prove us March she was she did not to go the my gosh is a star one moment you know it's Kate as what books do you read what paper theory and surveillance in any of them all of them right she didn't name specific ones you know you know she can say paper towns you know in and surely John green nothing as John Graham and a pleasure to me I would love to do the interview man truly truly over Bourbon our cigar anytime to be great you shouldn't have to do this no I think she made herself look small in doing this listen to Vanessa how ask you if you can name the president and the response was not yes that's right and I said that I made an error I think having a president that maybe is humble and is able to admit that here and there maybe wouldn't be a bad thing why is Vanessa how going after her yeah her forgetting the name of somebody in an interview does that mean anything to anyone is that a disqualifying factor of being president what the hell is being asked this is gross why would NBC allow it they have five moderators and they only needed to this was prophetic embarrassing what they want to show how well they were they had to get everything in this was a non question from a non reporter and anybody who wants that regardless your political party and you think that was okay your nuts that's gross they should have it should have been the Apollo and the hope sure to come out and there's the guidance and and off the stage she calms and who decides to double down on this moment judge I just didn't know how many more in the the contestants taking your candidacy on your Washington experience on the committee that oversees border security you're on the committee that does trade literally in the committee that's overseeing these things and we're not able to speak to literally the first thing about the politics of the country you are so are you that is so inept from people to judge that I it's be it might have been the most disqualifying thing he said all night you thought this was the moment for a pilot and let me ask you a question Pete you just won Iowa so they say we don't even know the numbers yet and your second place in Iowa your punching down at Amy clover chart exactly how ignorant are you are you new to this you you could not have made a bigger mistake and then any clubs are says hold hold my beer are you trying to say that I don't know are you mocking me here people sometimes forget names I am the one that has number one has the experience based on passing over one if I could respond this is a pretty big allocation he's basically saying that I don't have the experience to be president of the United States I have passed over one hundred bills that's a lead Democrat since being in the U. S. Senate I am the one you that has won statewide rational district after this he did finally come up that he lost a the treasures race to Richard Murdoch I think her save was in in some ways acceptable but why would you say the words are you calling me dumb why would you ever ever say that that's a ridiculously bad idea now it went on and then she Amy club which are afterwards had some words I've been a judge with Chris Matthews on MSNBC first and it was one error and he decided to make that the centerpiece of his attack I think we should be talking about policy and winning if you want to talk about winning look at Mare booted he tried to run statewide as I pointed out in Indiana got beat by over twenty points by someone who Joe Donnelly then the next election went on to beat himself a Democrat went on to beat him and I think that matter out of his way I don't think we should be putting someone in charge of the democratic that has not won right statewide and I also think as I said I he has been to talking points I know that but the truth is well this is gonna be out of his league that's what she's doing you know I told the story maybe I haven't told the story about how any closure I ran away from me after and I yelled the question now to our Indiana wants to know what you think about people to judge I have the I I I should grab it I should play for you and there were other reporters rami looking like I was crazy like Indiana wants to know yeah because we've all known that these two hate each other and look what just happened ahead of the curve guys that's all we are every single time you know who was ahead of the curve Jan clover jar because those two weren't running for president on the debate stage last night they were running to see which one could be the hud secretary for Bernie Sanders bad night for both of them math there has not been on the five is a massive artillery we have his U. zero north.

"I was the president from a very good mood about all this why should he be in a good mood about all this he is likely to face up with an oxygen Arian socialist at this point or the mayor of the town of one hundred thousand people in Indiana that shellac by Richard Murdoch in a statewide race so it's not a bad place to be for the president of the United States an incumbent well Bernie Sanders basically begging the media at this point not to attack him because he's gotten away with it for years nobody asking a serious questions as Sanders independent he was asking me he said of the yeah isn't it nice members of the media and I'm not talking to I'm not feeling good luck my enemy I'm not treating use of course not treating them as an enemy first of all how many countries when you treat people as enemies they die second of all you're not treating them as an enemy because they are your friends because they have supported you and they continue to lie that your only Nordic socialist as opposed to like an actual socialist because even the people normally do not consider that they live in a source in a socialist nation Hey hers Bernie's yet I mean and and by the way you know should know what socialism looks like members a lot of the Norwegian it and there was a lot of some of the Scandinavian countries were occupied by the USSR like Finland anyway here is Bernie Sanders explaining to the media you're not my enemy so why don't you leave me alone and go attack mandate and also for the media isn't it nice to go to an event we are not considered to be an enemy of the people and you were shown some respect but I don't want to overdo it I mean there isn't a great I'm your friend now I want to treat me nicely and they have been pretty nicely and continue to treat him nicely Bernie is it I mean he is such that he too is a pander bear was in Bernie explained he's he become newly woke on the criminal justice system which is interesting I did not fully appreciate until it ran for president to be honest with you how rockets and racist our criminal justice system is on track I did not know the blue bars to tell you this because maybe many of you know what maybe some of you don't thirty day in America as we speak at this moment they're all for a hundred thousand people behind bars right now who have not been convicted of anything you mean people who aren't currently in jail awaiting trial would that be Bernie Sanders I mean or who were not convicted because they plea bargain like what what what exactly are you talking about there and and by the way it is amazing that he's openly able to say the only stumbled on the problem of criminal justice reform when he was running for office almost as though he only him where to it when it started to hurt him literally I mean is that nobody will tell a joke about Bernie everybody avoids jokes about burning differ Jimmy Fallon who that I guess is still on the outs after having had the temerity to rub Donald trump's hair here is Jimmy Fallon attacking Bernie's love which is a big no no we're only here to to praise of Bernie we'll see what Stephen Colbert to to mayor Pete over the over the last forty eight hours here is Jimmy Fallon going after Bernie's well the Iowa results are coming in and Bernie Sanders is trailing people to judge by less than one percent which explains why they bring it was going now I really hate the one percent well for burning in January here is twenty five million dollars when you realize how rich he is Bernie started running attack ads against himself news of mild mild mild poking a very nothing else allowed nothing about him being like you know a communist you are listening of the media defending Democrats my goodness so judge defended partial birth abortion the other day on the view like full undefended it is I'm making McCann Meghan McCain asked about partial birth abortion meeting a baby is thirty five weeks can you kill this baby in the womb I have a few opinions on this considering that my wife is currently thirty six weeks pregnant so I have I have a few opinions on this and I would have those opinions regardless of whether you're pregnant a thirty six week old fetus is a baby okay this is a baby now I mean you're you're talking about for my ability outside the womb maybe we can ask about this and he basically says that if anyone wants to kill a baby for any reason well it's their choice I mean this is wild crazy stuff anybody seriously think that's what the case or about the situation yes if you're if this is a late term situation then by definition is one where a woman was expecting to carry the pregnancy to term then she gets the most perhaps devastating news of her life families that that may have picked out a name maybe assembling a crib and they learn something excruciating and are faced with this terrible choice and I don't know what to tell them of moral about what they should do I just know that I trust her and her decision medically or morally isn't gonna be any better because the government is commanding her to do it in the search I mean this is Bizarro world I mean he's actively arguing at this point and somebody gets bad news about their child at any point in what why should the rate of pregnancy the terminate outcome here what if you have a baby and then he comes out and then you realize they've had one and then you realize the navy's down syndrome as mayor Pete all for the abortion like what why is it that the vaginal canal somehow magically converse personhood on human beings this is madness what he is suggesting right here but the news got CNN to cover up forms it's got Chris Cuomo other thing would change isn't extreme on abortion no he's not extreme that's crazy it's a lie to say that people do judge or anybody in the Democratic Party who's running for president wants to have abortion whenever you wanted at any time let's pull out the baby and let's look at it in and throw it in the garbage you guys say this and you say it for the ugliest of reasons you know what the law is you know you couldn't do that by law the Supreme Court standard wouldn't allow it you know what the viability standard is you know no Democrat says that you should be able to get an abortion any time before the kid goes to kindergarten why scare people such a wire he doesn't understand how Rovers's way works the viability standard in roe versus Wade sets a baseline for when you are allowed to regulate abortion meaning not that roe versus Wade allows for a federal ban or forces a federal ban on partial birth abortion but that you are not allowed to regulate abortion prior to viability basically they want to do once vital then you can determine whether or not there ought to be a law on the books so crisp almost getting legal standard exactly backward because demand guys happened by but it's just it's it's unbelievable it's unbelievable to defend the Democrats on abortion by saying they don't want any abortion at eight that's literally in the platform any reason anytime of the whenever it's in their platform judge defended it on national TV don't worry the media are always there to fend Democrats always always always however I will say they do have some motivated players inside B. Democrat media Stephen Cole bear is very many people get she has on people who judge call there is a Bernie I and so he really went after judge fairly hard actually at something is you get a jacket or something easy to you like Elizabeth Warren has this uniform from sort of Howard Dean tie but no but no jacket uniformity get in any case here Stephen Cole bear who is kind of slamming bloody judge in front of his face let's talk about the wind cave okay you got a lot of criticism do we have or if you know we have to talk about the wind cave do you understand why people might criticize that because there is especially this year there's a sense that we should not be beholden to special interests with huge amounts of money in order to influence candidates it should we need a grassroots broad coalition of people and that that turn some people off I understand the frustration and and I'm not a fan of the campaign finance system we have today who is it I mean that is does called they're leveraging direct attack on have a Bernie Sanders against people to judge so it is fascinating to watch it is investing watch the circular firing twenty second get you Joe Biden whose bashing both Bernie and judge and pointing out the blue judge is a non entity politically until the what the last five minutes and putting out the burning is going to destroy the big party down ballot what I mean it's broken out and the war is on its on Michael Bloomberg just over here spend money yet there well it's more than just one second first getting if you haven't noticed already twenty twenty is a crazy year the election race is just getting started we know you need to know everything from debate and primary updates latest nonsense from the democratic candidates the.

"Show thanks for joining us don't forget to follow me on Twitter at rob in Kendall always appreciate a follow keep a lot of our conversation here on the radio station let's talk about how you feel about our governor and senators ninety three W. I. B. C. rob Kendall rob Kendall show thanks for joining us don't forget to follow me on Twitter at rob in Kendall always appreciate a follow keep a lot of our conversation here on the radio station going on over there all right so new poll out from a group called morning consul and they do quarter polling SO four times a year or every three months on the senators and governors across the nation in that course includes Indiana and so they have just completed a a new poll from July thirty first through September thirtieth that's out and there's some interesting information on how you are feeling about governor Eric Holcomb and senators taught young and micron no I've said this for a while and I will stand by it that the track record of Hoosier voters in the last decade leads us to realize that for the most part in the vast majority of cases if you are a functioning breathing talking normal Republican on a statewide level you're probably going to win election if you are a normal functioning why I articulate Republican on a statewide level you're the Republican nominee for whatever that statewide offices you're probably going to win think about the only two in the past decade the only two Republicans on a statewide level to go down Richard Murdoch and Tony Bennett Richard Murdoch of course had the serious flaw with his comments involving rape back in two thousand twelve which determine against Joe Donnelly and Tony Bennett was hated absolutely hated by teachers across the state many of them Republicans who banded together to elect Glenda Ritz superintendent in twenty twelve other than that on a statewide level over the past decade Republicans of had dominance as long as the nominee non controversial people who keep their heads down in their mouth shut they won elections but I'm I'm not making that up and see for yourself you can see for yourself and more often times those elections are even close Indiana is a default Republican state if all things are equal people vote for the Republican if you don't know anything about the statewide office holders in weather's treasure auditor whatever you just go for the Republic and and that's a good thing for the Indiana GOP it's how they keep winning elections it's done in large part because the Democrats in the state prove themselves to be so inept that they were completely thrown out of office at all levels HM haven't been able to put together an articulate coherent message of any sort that appeals to the people of Indiana in the past decade so let's go let's go back to two thousand eighteen remember during the Senate primary I told you as long as the Republicans didn't nominate topper Kita they would win that Senate seat all no you don't know what you're talking about you don't know we got a fighter to go in there as a no so history tells us that as long as you nominate a normal functioning non controversial Republican he or she is going to win and I said I don't care who it is it's whether it's broader look Messer as either one of those two guys will win this race easily no no no we have to take it with no public heat is on a is acting like an undisciplined goof in this race and that pain to me because I really like for Kita up before he ran for U. S. Senate he was very good in the house he was very good a secretary of state but he ran an undisciplined race that would have ended up he would have ended up just like Richard Murdoch and as you can I'm here Kita and only run got the nomination and ultimately Braun ran a good race he didn't do anything to deserve your vote really but he didn't do anything to blow it and ultimately he won easily against Joe Donnelly I was proven correct as I also often him because this is where I live this is what I do he was a non controversial Republican and when it was Republican against Democrat non controversial Republican against non controversial Democrat they went eight day being the state of Indiana one with the Republican I was right so transporting here we are today in this morning console poll on how Hoosiers are feeling about Eric Holcomb and about Mike brown in about to Todd young and since that is still bearing out comes an awful governor he's terrible he is governed as a Democrat more than a Republican in many cases he's grown government at all levels from from education on down massive growth of government billions of dollars in growth in government and he's raise taxes to do it the largest tax increase in Indiana state history the tax on gas the war on truckers the toll to put a billion dollars on the cost of moving goods and services around our state he's raised taxes it at every turn he has a special interest he do you know what or did nothing I guess I should say due to promote Sunday alcohol sales did nothing to promote sports betting and has done nothing and will continue to do nothing and in fact remains an antagonist to something like medical marijuana that helps a lot of people he's a failure he's a big government liberal that's what are called commence but he's not controversial he's not doing referral like Mike pence he's not going after unions like Mitch Daniels the guy is and so as a result fifty one percent of the people the poll say they approve of him twenty three percent disapprove and the most telling number of all twenty five percent either don't know or have no opinion that to me is a lot of people how can you be the governor of a state three three years and nobody did people I'm opinion either you're good or bad this is a bill and I talked about it on on Friday when I was in for the checks that's the crowd and Eric Holcombe trust me call them is just fine with twenty five percent of the people being because of those twenty five percent are men two thirds of a we're gonna break Republican all things being equal he's going to get two thirds of that twenty five percent so I mean he's going to cruise to reelection just by being a functioning breathing Republican in the state of Indiana Eric Holcombe is the donor lobby a stream he's comes off as a nice guy he comes off as a cool guy he comes off as a guy that doesn't do anything controversial he keeps his head down and he takes the path of least resistance he is a donor's dream but he recognizes that you are too stupid to pay attention he recognizes that and then the donors recognise that you don't know what's going on you don't know how your vote is being sold we felt it out to you on this show many times but unless you're listening or seeking out that information what's the average person is not on a consistent basis he's a Republican I'm a Republican although for that guy same thing with Mike Braun and Todd young can you tell me one thing Todd young who's been in office since Sir twenty seventeen is accomplished in Senate all wait we could be here today we could be here a week we could be here a month the answer is nothing young is really accomplish nothing he's voted for certain things are Republican agenda items such as the judges let's give him credit he has voted for trump Supreme Court judge nominees Jordan voted for most of his lower court nominees any support things like tax reform Todd young has been a rank and file Republican nothing more nothing less he's done nothing to talk to write home about he's taken no tough stands you just functioning breeding non controversial Republican and that young is and I said that when he was running young's wanted to be in public office to since he was old enough to tie shoes what he's always wanted to do he was in Congress and then he went to the Senate now he's a Senate wiper Todd young will die an old man in the U. S. Senate if he doesn't run for president they that's what I'll do or maybe he'll get out run for governor someday but Todd young will die an old man in public office he will just keep getting reelected because he's never going to do anything controversial Todd young's approval rating forty two percent approve twenty five percent disapprove again same thing with all the little bit lower approval rating but that's pretty good for Congress people hate Congress so naturally Congress is going to be a little bit lower but up to twenty five percent actually this case it's twenty five percent disapprove so that sixty seven percent total I'm opinions that means thirty three percent don't he's going to get two thirds of the thirty three percent if you don't do anything controversial the crowd and so we'll get reelected meals ready related easy what I want to take any chances why would he do anything big and bold he's gonna win easily long as he just keeps his head down and done do Jack crap on your behalf of things that really matter Mike brought same thing forty four percent approve a little bit higher twenty seven percent disapprove little bit higher that so what is that seventy one percent total that means twenty nine percent are men he's gonna get two thirds of the matter as long as he doesn't do anything just like you did winding reading it's not like he's gonna win easy this is why these guys are swamp creatures it's why they exist we allow them to exist we are to blame nobody else because already how could anybody think Eric Holcombe done a good job he stolen from you he's stolen from you in Rome the government boys that's courageous boy that that that that takes boldness right there to steal from other people look at how we can improve people dealing with Mike brown and and and taught young one of the done they've done nothing but you're okay with nothing no nothing you personally but as a collective because were apathetic or uninformed and we default to man which is man being Republican in the state and it's true all over the country you wanna know why things in Washington are the way they are let's look in the mirror ninety three W.

"Even even from people who despised him, politically, even Monica. Boyer wrote something nice about ritual dating. Now. What's going on with you guys? I just think she's happier. Because you guys there's been no social media violence between the two of you recently been we detente. You know, I we because my neighbor's sided not to start firing at me. And also, I think sometimes when you're happier with your own self image that translates into your relationships with other. I do miss you too sparring people, you know, it's like grumpy old men, you know, something's going to start going to be like that movie Ephron. Yeah. That's already house whatever no don't actually rich, Richard Murdoch. Something I thought it was very complimentary of Senator Lugar as well. And as joke wrote on Twitter. When progressive Democrats and logical conservatives can both, you know, say nice things about you passing. That means you true, your true statesman. And that is what dick Luger was. And it was interesting because not only that we lose Lugar this week. We also had a moral service for by to to sort of Indiana legends, one Republican one democrat both working on both sides of the aisle getting back to people ask me, what do you think is big as legacy was was it unit gov. Was it no Nunn Lugar? What was it? I think one of the most underrated parts of dig diggers legacy were the people that he brought on board who are now in Indiana government and politics, whether with Mitch Daniels who was his chief of staff like Jim Morris who was with him. Theresa lovers. The Commissioner of higher education was one of the first people Lugar series for women and even your person to throw an occasional Dr Todd young for ninety four ninety four. More ninety seven was Luger staffer. So you just you just look through the through the branch law the people that worked under under dick Lugar's tutelage. I mean that to me shows the true impact that that he had. And by the way, a lot of people forget that his first job was being a member of the school. I mean, he literally worked himself from the from the ground up any something. I saw some photo from the sixties of him at the envelope club. Yup. I don't know if he was a member there or not. But he was certainly there. Imagined us the whole establishment. Actually, I think the president time was Alex Clarke who was mayor former mayors of Indianapolis who once again part of that establishment, even back then. But here's what's interesting about dig Lugar, when he was on the school board, very few people, though, the story is that he convinced a bunch of Republicans that they should participate the school board and the federal school lunch program for poor and economically disadvantaged kids who were coming to come to school hungry. If these kids are hungry, they can't learn to focus on eating than learning and how does this help? And so he can convince nineteen sixty five or publicans to get on board. That tells you the guy was extremely thoughtful. I was looking back at obviously full disclosure. I'm sure not that it was fries anyone, but I did vote for Richard Murdoch in the twenty twelve Primero. Murdoch bad. I just wanted leaguer out. But I was looking back at his at his dominance from nineteen eighty eight to two thousand six he never got less than sixty seven percent of the vote over that whatever that is I guess in eighteen eighteen year span. Four elections sixty seven percent and up that's dominance, man. And here's dominance and two thousand six Democrats run anybody against him a libertarian free percents voters libertarian and somebody else. Now, the question always been sick. Dick Luger have run in two thousand twelve. And I know there are a number of people who are close to the Senator saying, maybe this should be your last kind of swansong hurrah. Let's go out at the top of our game. But he wanted to give it just one more telling your grandpa. He can't drive anymore. Right. I mean, that's our conversation to have and you do feel bad because the the most recent legacy in this. Dick, Luger is not all the stuff that he did. It's the. Glory. Murder will actually I think what we saw this week is. Yes, the would've probably wanted to end a little bit of a different way. But more people remember more things about what he did in the bigger grand scheme of things, then the Murdoch loss even in a weird way to Republicans learned evaluation lesson from Lugar in defeat which was and we've seen it now with with old four ninety seven Todd defeating Marlin Stutzman, and then Mike Braun defeating our friend Todd rakija. Air quotes around the hour. You better you better be careful who you nominate because it's better to have a Republican you agree with eighty percent of the time in there. And it's gonna vote for your judges versus having a democrat in there. And I think Republicans really learned valuable lesson be careful who you nominate. And at the end of the day, you want a candidate who is not going to go off the rails and say something crazy now now now now in our business, we love the candidates, go off the rails and say half, my brain Lexa, crazy other half of my brain like no stop that. One thing that did by kindle Shabbat program statehouse happening with the did stand out to me of dual as we wind down here. Is the amount of regular people like non-political people who were posting memories with Richard Lugar and not like political stuff like they met him in a colts game super nice, or they they had some thing they needed from his office, and he personally took care of it. Or they met him at a diner somewhere invited them to sit down next to them and eat and the guy just kept talking like, it's incredible. What a genuinely good dude, he was and Senator we've always kind of have we called it our annual meeting get together because he do events at the university of Indianapolis, not to my stews in dick Luger. I'll be right back and said, he was sort of everybody's grandfather, you know, you liked it. And he had a really sharp memory because he remember, you know, things about you when you would see on Asian. So I think it's it's like I said about dick Lugar and Birch by show a big loss to to the state into the country. And also, you cannot undermine or forget Nunn Lugar, the work day with former Georgia Senator Sam Nunn too. Get a bunch of nuclear weapons under control after the Soviet Union kind of started to collapse, and that's not. That's not sexy stuff. But it's it's got you. Always this right campaigning fun governing is hard. And it's so true. Right. It's it's so true. It's part of the reason I didn't run for state Senate and twenty sixteen was I would love to the campaign. But then after that, you gotta govern. And and I would never wanna half ass my governing, and it was like four years of doing this sound all that much fun. And also you can keep your mouth shut up talking to caucus. Mike dealt me within two minutes. Yeah. Checked me out. Oh, man. I'd have been have think about how much fun. You be having right now. That'd be having regular press conferences in the rotunda IB bad mouth and the leaders have Ida major job enjoyable every single day. No, you wouldn't have. Real quick for people that are airing on the podcast, which we post up during the week. What's coming up for the adult large Saturday? Obviously, we'll be looking back at the life and legacy of US interdict Luger and may play my last interview I did with him back in December last time. He ran into each other because we've got a primary season.

"In Christchurch New Zealand. What is it that? We're looking at nationwide and worldwide and when people like Matthew Dowd are ABC start discussing white terrorism. They're fully prepared for the much bigger conversation. That honest people have on right now saying, I'm not so sure he's an honest person. We are and we are going to dig into Tony cats cats today. Eight three three guts on the eight three three four six eight six six nine and the NRA to mention I live in Indianapolis last week. We were broadcasting from the NRA convention because that's where it was. And. Everybody. They're totally happy every single person. I spoke to hundreds of people out of the tens of thousands. Who are who are here. Unbelievably happy with what they saw with the whole event with the NRA in terms of protecting the second amendment, but the leadership issues I've heard rumblings for a while. But the things I heard were from people casual conversation, nothing I would ever say, ooh, check this out. What came to a head between Oliver North? And and Wayne LaPierre the executive vice president Oliver North the president of the NRA what came to a head, which is culminating in a board meeting. Vote. That could change. What literally how the NRA that top leadership? Looks like not a conversation for the timid and certainly not a conversation where frayed of because anytime there's financial malfeasance anytime people are taking the public trust and asking for dollars. And then saying how could I use this for my advantage as opposed to the people who invest in us that's a worthy conversation, you should want at those moments to clean and clear house. Oh, we're gonna get into all of it. But Senator Richard Lugar passed away. Eighty seven for a lot of people the name, Richard Lugar. I mean in in the mid west, it's a mainstay name. You talking about multiple terms as as a Senator. And then as mayor before that, and he's got this like incredible kind of family tree, right? One of those people is Mitch Daniels. That's guy who people consider as a as a presidential candidate. He could have been president. He could've won the presidency. Mitch Daniels a former governor of Indiana, he's the president of Purdue University. And there is not a person who doesn't look them say that's leadership. That's that's the guy. Right. That's somebody who we should want to clone. Emulate one of the one of the things I always thought he did very very well. Is that he had written a book and he's talked with before. And he would say, listen, I aborted is a serious issue. Abortions a serious conversation. We do need to discuss it. But can I please, right? The ship over here. I some of these economic issues before we get to the social issues. It's not today. Don't matter. It's just I have to get the country on track the state on track. And then I can gauge here. Now, some people like oh on life. You're willing to wait. That's not the argument. He's making you'd make this. This is really important conversation about pragmatism, and this pragmatism conversation is lost. And I do think it's lost on the political right in a huge way. Because they think that it's acquiescence. I don't I think it's about timing. And timing matters. If you're going to prioritize you have to prioritize with strength and conviction and relentlessness to then get able to get down the list to the other things, but you do have to prioritize none on the level of of your feeling by the level of a nation. And then workers through there always agreed with that. I've always thought that was a smart concert. Well, Mitch Daniels started as like an aide to Richard Lugar, when Richard Lugar was mayor of Indianapolis mayor and any went on to be Senator served as chief of staff to Richard Lugar. And I spoke with with him on the morning show. We got into a conversation of leadership and to this conversation of nuclear proliferation. It's that that I'm gonna come back to afterwards because within the Richard Lugar story, it's an American story to which we all experience today. And it's pretty interesting and me, listen, I don't have an experience with Richard Lugar. My only experience really is the days of him running for the Senate running against Richard Murdoch and losing the nomination to this tea party guy, Richard Murdoch, and then Murdoch's route up with one of the one of the greater gaps in modern political history on on I don't even want to get into it. I actually interviewed Richard Murdoch before I'm not referring to with just some guy. He was liked and he was going to be a tea party kind of cat, and then he just not as bad as Todd akin. But man, he wanted to get close. That's the best way put it. But wanting to listen to this conversation with the former governor of Indiana, the president Purdue University Mitch Daniels talking about the late Senator Richard Lugar words are hard to come by right now. Dick Luger was not just the finest public servants. I will ever know. He was the finest person him bodied, all we can hope for in our leaders brilliant mind, purity of motive stainless in character tireless in the pursuit of duty. Those just some of the words from former Indiana governor, the president Purdue University Mitch Daniels who worked hand in hand with Senator Richard Lugar passing away this weekend at the age of eighty seven I bring in the former governor of the president of Purdue University Mitch Daniels, you were there when he was mayor you were with him as a Senator how do you describe Richard Lugar? I guess the way I attempted to in that short statement, Tony. He'll many compliments for which he should always be remembered. But I think in some ways that example of character and and leadership in public life at established, maybe an even bigger legacy. One of the things that people talk about with you, sir. There's the Mitch Daniels leadership foundation. They talk about your time as governor here as an example of that's leadership. It has always been a conversation. My coming to to Indianapolis. There was a tremendous amount of oh, you should have seen the days of Mitch Daniels. Yet in this statement, you're very much in almost a deference to Richard Lugar. And how that was either inspirational to you or guiding principle to you were there certain specific tactics styles that Senator Lugar had in leadership where you said I'm going to take that that's worth keeping and putting into my arsenal. Yeah. I think we're all to an extent a composite of people we met and in around, and I don't know you make a conscious decision to emulate this or that. But it if you pay attention folks in his case. He was able to stick to principle maintain goodwill for people who spoke you'll him or criticized what he did. He was so inquisitive, obviously, brilliant person Rhodes scholar and all that. But. Never without a a tote bag full of stuff Tula books and articles always learning always looking for other points of view that might either confirm his own or maybe teach teaching something he didn't know. So I think you couldn't be around him picking up pieces that remember way back then. And then some would say look you thinking about going to graduate school. I said I am in graduate school. I'm in the Lugar school of of character in public service, talking to Mitch Daniels, president Purdue University, former governor of Indiana, what Senator Lugar is known for we actually played some clips of President Obama. Very laudatory remarks about Senator Lugar and his impact on nuclear proliferation. What was it about this? That made Senator Lugar say this is my cause he always looked at the at the big picture. And it wasn't that. He wasn't interested in. Secondary or less than less than urgent issues. He did his duty as it was presented to him, but not much more important than keeping Americans alive and safer from the biggest single threat that the average American faces to his or her security, and so it was no surprise to me that he spent so many years working on that thought it was really important some commentators noting this morning. He didn't just was Sam Nunn. The work that Bill through finally to passage in state on top of it for the next several years to make sure it's being implemented. That is to say that missiles and bombs were being physically destroyed. He went Antlers times to Russia and other places to see it for himself. That's not something you find in every buddy legislative office. Now, people are no Sam Nunn longtime Senator from from Georgia and democrat this working across the aisle conversation that seems to be a hallmark of the Senator Lugar as well. It was in both jobs to I saw him in in in. We also in legislative leadership where compromise reaching across the lines. And. Is often the absolute prerequisite to getting anything done. I was also lucky enough to see him as a chief executive here in this town where he was in a position more often to initiate action. I mean, I still love going to work. Buzzer would go off at some early. Our and you can come in here from any got some article we read in the newspaper somewhere. Why don't we try this? And by three o'clock that afternoon, we would be he was a man of action when he had the the kind of job that lent itself to it Mitch Daniels, president Purdue University, former governor of Indiana, I appreciate you taking the time giving us your thoughts of a manual work so closely with Senator Richard Lugar gone at the age of eighty seven governor president, thank you very much. I remembering him, Tony. Thank you. Big fan of Mitch Daniels. Even if I disagree on one or two policy things fan of him, the attitude of the style the thing like find most interesting about this conversation when I hear people now talking about Luger and talking about this work nuclear proliferation. We don't think about it. Today's world doesn't think about it? No, I worry that North Korea has a nuclear weapon, I worry that Iran has a nuclear weapon I want to ensure that they are unable to perfect unable to even have the technologies. But if there there is definitely many things where I'm was not Richard Lugar fan. At all. And even some of his later comments over the past year or so about foreign policy. I disagreed. But the whole idea of we don't maybe understand today. We may have lost a little bit of touch to how. All encompassing nuclear proliferation, nuclear war, nuclear problems were and so two that always got to keep things in the context of the history. It was in it mattered that much. It was that big of a deal. And if that's your legacy as it is Richard Lugar's, not so bad. I have so much to get the headlines to get to the NRA convention the synagogue conversation, and ho rod Rosenstein man when somebody get him under oath. I'll tell you why that's coming up. I'm Tony cats. Every.

"To the weekend edition of large here on ninety three IDC. Our guest today is Jack Jack is a political columnist. He writes for the south bend Tribune where people. Judge who has announcing this weekend that he is running for the presidency. It couldn't hurt to sit down talk to Jack and get some ideas. Get some perspective on how things translate from the from the local level to give us some insight on we expect from the from a national perspective. His administrative executive experience as mayor of south bend, Indiana. There are a lot of other bigger cities than only in Indiana. But also across the country, whether you're mayor of Chicago or New York or Tampa, Florida or over that matter, Indianapolis does that necessarily do you think? Break through the ice. When you look at just that crowded field of. Tell the guys down here is there any democrat not running for president. What's it up to seventeen now at least? Well, in terms of the size of the city. He makes the argument that a mayor of a city of almost any size still deals with the same types of of issues and that in in doing so you gain that experience whether it's on a level of Chicago, New York or southbound or nearby. Michele walk that in any city, you still face the the the problems of an administrator and the same issues involving the lives of people that are faced around the entire nation. And it's seems to be selling. I think that that helps with that. When he talks about his experience. He mentioned his his time in Afghanistan on an active duty and. So that he is one of the very very few presidential announced candidates or candidates thinking about it ever to have any military experience. And he thinks that in addition to the administrative experience of of of mayor of a city are do indeed qualify them to to seek the presidency. Help shape form his governing style. I don't know that it changed the governing style. If all I think if perhaps gave him more of a perspective of of the situation in Afghanistan of foreign affairs on on just the global picture, which he would not have had to that extent. If he was just staying in south bend and never going to a site of of of actual combat over an F ghanistan. He in his book, he has a very moving chapter about his experience in Afghanistan and about the the death of fellow officer in a in a roadside bombing that actually occurred just the day that he left from Afghanistan. And he sort of you know, talks philosophically about, you know, why that guy why not him, you know, just the way the wind blows. What what what does this mean? And one thing it means that he he thinks he was very fortunate to be the one who survived to get back into carry on his life and career. Few more minutes on the program today. He is a columnist for the south bend Tribune talking about south bend mayor. And. See his presidential nouncement this weekend. One of the things in conversation, not necessarily. There is the fact that. A member of the community, but also married and some much more stable relationship than traditional friends. Hookups incentives that mattered hasn't played a role or is it just like, hey, folks. It's almost twenty twenty. Who cares? Well, I'll tell you. If if it's surprising. I think when you think back to what would have happened ten years ago. If an an openly gay candidate announced for for president. I think it would be impossible to gain the traction of that piece has gay. It has not seemed to to to hurt him at all certainly he he did say came out before he ran for reelection anyone by an even bigger margin than he won in winning the first time. So if it certainly has not hurt him at all in in south bend. Some people have suggested that one reason he could not take a step of running for governor or US Senator in Indiana before plunging into the presidential waters is that a a gay candidate might not do that well in some parts of Indiana. And I think that's probably true. But thus far it does not seem to be a problem at all. And certainly it is not with the younger voters as we said we'd get rid of conversation with Jack all the south bend Tribune, Jack, obviously Indian Democrats for the most part tend to be a little bit more conservative than some of their national counterparts. The different schools of political theory. Can't judge somebody who by any objective, real measurable standard is a more more moderate democrat than maybe some of the more vocal active progressive left that seems almost wanna get all the tension and imprinted politics these days, you can Pete kennicutt through all that with the Kamala Harris says and the Cory booker's the Bernie Sanders at the how does Pete Buddha judge and flex time tenure as mayor sound Ben can cut through all of that. For now. National Democrats seem to be taking more active aggressive left-leaning position on issues. Boy. Yeah, you're certainly right on that. And it's going to be tough for him, as you know, the the primaries of the it's more of the the activists of date use the word extremist, but those farthest to the right on the Republican side the left on the Democrats are the ones why vote. So it's it's going to be tougher. He he has to find a. A road that kind of separates him as perhaps the the one more moderate candidate who would have the best chance to win. And I think even the the most progressive Democrats would indeed what somebody who could win who could beat Donald Trump, even if it's somebody who is not a one hundred percent in agreement with with their views. He's got to establish that he keeps using the term of Democrats needing to connect with flyover country. I mean, that's us. The people in middle America, where the candidates tend to just fly from coast to coast and pay attention to the issues in in the people in in the two coasts and just kind of ignore the concerns of people in in in the middle west and then the rest of middle America. He needs to he needs to sell that. And convince people, hey, you know, if Donald Trump is going to be defeated there better be a candidate this time who could carry will Michigan, and Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania and. And just figure, okay. Coast. We can we can win those. But man, if if we blow the middle of the country, it's Donald Trump for four more years, and that was going to be my next question is how does a map above matchup against? Early. Donald trump. Folks have been going back to when he ran against Richard Murdoch for state treasurer. Yes. Could you lose against Richard Murdoch? Because. Mr Murdoch had made rather ridiculous comments about rape ride at the time. Midterm election after Barack Obama and dude this is still Indiana. Right. Yes. That was a hopeless race. Pete had no no chance to to win that. However, it was one of those cases where actually he he he led the the democratic ticket or it all went down to the. But he he impressed some people at that play including some of the the people in south bend who are looking for a candidate for mayor. And so he he actually won by losing that race because he then was persuaded to run for mayor hit a lot of support. It's all in one. And you know, look, look what that is led to. Jack, Jack is a political columnist from the south bend Tribune, offering up. Some insight on judge who is expected to announce he's running officially four president this week nothing. Anybody would have noticed? Thank you very much. And if you don't mind we love to maybe reach out to you from time to time and get some of your perspective presidential as well. As get your thoughts on other issues impacting the state of Indiana. Oh, great would like to. Thank you for joining us, sir. Thank you. And you're listening to the weekend edition of. To make my credits. I'm ready to take classes from university. That will help me build a Mike spirit. It prepare me for the teacher. That would make me feel supported.

"I felt like Joe Biden. For Democrats eager for a nominee who is the fifth est. Donald Trump and sensitive to anything that appears Trump like Biden is just the latest candidate forced to explain an apologize. Sanders is facing allegations that staffers on his last campaign engaged in sexual harassment and assault and just be clear. You seem to get did you did not know at the time about the allegations. Is that correct? Yes, I was a little bit busy running around the country. Trying to make the case Beto Rourke is apologizing for comments about his wife, and sometimes helping to raise his own kids. Pete Buddha JR. Is explaining his past use of the phrase all lives matter. The rise of Buddha digit is a reminder Democrats are looking high and low for an alternative to President Trump. It's unusual for even be plausible that Thirty-seven-year-old mid western mayors. Giving national interviews about a possible candidacy for president. But there's something happening right now that calls for something completely different. And joining me now is the mayor of south bend, Indiana. It was technically still exploring a presidential bid people. Did it Mr Mayor? Welcome back. Welcome to meet the press. Thanks for having me on. We say exploring, I know you have an announcement prepared. I think a week from today. That's right. We're looking forward tie. Is there any reason to believe that it will be I'm not running for president? The kind of thing we're going to announce is the kind of thing you only get to announce once. So I hope a lot of friends. And supporters will be there week from today in south bend. All right. So what does something completely different? Because mean, and I say this in this respect Donald Trump came in as most inexperienced president in American history when it came to government service public service and things like that. While you have more executive experience than he did going into this. You also would be a fairly inexperienced president. Why should something completely different? Another inexperienced politician. I would stack up my experience against anybody. I know it's it's not as traditional. I haven't been marinating in Washington here for a very long time. And I'm not part of that same establishment. But I would argue that being a mayor of a city of any size means that you have to deal with the kinds of issues that really hit Americans. It's everything from infrastructure to economic development, racial sensitivities in policing, not to mention the fact that I would also add more military experience under my belt than anybody to walk into that office since George H W Bush, so I think it's about quality as well as quantity inexperienced. But I think you can also see pretty clearly that about is different from this president as it gets head you been successful in your last campaign, you'd be the chair of the Democratic Party right now, I soon that means you wouldn't be running for president. That's probably true, maybe in a selfish way. That that worked out for the best while I was just going to say, then what was your motivation for being DNC chair? And then suddenly, you didn't get it. And you said, oh now, I shouldn't believe anytime you're contemplating running for office, the discernment process should work like this. You look at what the office calls for in that moment. And then you look at yourself, and what you bring to the table, and he looked for a match, and I've used that process to decide to run for office several times I've used that process to decide not to run for office several times what I see right now is a country going through tectonic profound change in an office that has a loss of vision and loss of decency. And I'm surprised as anybody I've been if you would ask me two years ago what I would be doing in two thousand nineteen. I don't think I would have said this. But here you have this moment. Probably the only woman in American history where it just might make sense for somebody my age coming from experience in the industrial midwest nonfederal different background, bringing something that will actually help Americans envision the world is it'll be in two thousand fifteen. Before the year that I will reach the current age of the current president and just change the channel from this mesmerizing horror show that's going on in Washington right now, I want to delve into Indiana a little bit your record at south bend and record in Indiana politics. You ran statewide once in Indiana. It's you ran against a guy named Richard Murdoch who met people in Washington may may remember that name. He was the person that upset dick Luger who ended up handing Senate seat to the Democrats that has since gone Republican you lost Murdoch qualify him. That's your you. Couldn't win statewide in Indiana. It was two thousand ten it's hard for democrat to win statewide in the best of years. I was running in the worst of years, but I'm still proud of our campaign. We I was largely doing it to stand up for auto workers, Richard Murdoch intervene to prevent the auto rescue took a case all the way to the supreme court using his standing as Indiana state treasurer, and it would've devastated our state. I thought somebody needed to stand up to him. I did I got my head handed to did. You learn from that though, you obviously had a whole bunch of voters that didn't. Weren't ready to support you? What do you think your issue as you think simply was youth perhaps? Well, first of all again, it was actually can say I lead the ticket. Although just about all of us were somewhere in the forty percent range that year because it's just a horrible year to be a democrat in Indiana, frankly, in most places, but what I really learned was campaigning. This is my first time on the ballot. It was uphill to say the least not a lot of people were even following the treasures race. It's hard. When people have heard of neither you nor the officer running for, but I learned fundraising Ellard retail. I learned how to put together and that wound up serving the very well when in south bend the seat opened up is the first open seat in twenty four years at exactly the moment. When our city was looking for something different needed a fresh start. Not put up a couple of numbers here. Having to do with south bend. The poverty rate is still over twenty five percent the fiction rate six point seven percent, which is fairly high not the highest Indiana. But on the high end of Indiana. So obviously you've been reelected. So voters believe you put the city in the in the right direction in that sense. But these are still tough numbers. What haven't you been able to accomplish that you wish you would? Well, there's so much work to do in a community like ours. I think people know that it's the hometown of Notre Dame. They might assume that it's a wealthy homogeneous college town, but we're city that was devastated by the loss of industry, especially when the auto factories left in the nineteen sixties when I took office there were articles about whether south bend was a dying city. Our poverty rate is too high. But it's down we cut unemployment by unemployment by more than half. And we've been able to change the trajectory of the city to where we're growing in population. And in investment of the piece we haven't seen in a generation it's not like all of our problems are solved. But I think one of the reasons that I wound up getting reelected with eighty percent of the vote is a sense that we had really changed the story for our city. And I think that's something that the country needs to hear because he got a president who's telling anybody from the community like mine be an industrial commute. City or rural community any community where people grow up getting this message that success means you have to get out. He's telling us the greatness is in the past. We've got to stop the clock and turn it back. And I'm not there making the case that south bend is living proof that have good politics is not one based on the word. Again, the issue of income inequality, particularly racial disparities on income inequality are huge in south bend. So you've face. This is a crisis around the country you face this firsthand. How much you haven't had much luck closing that gap. What have you tried that has worked? And what do you think you tried that didn't work what we've got it moving in the right direction, but we're talking about generational poverty. Generational disposition. That is result. Dispossession result of a combination of racist policies over the years, and in the effect that poverty and mass incarceration have community were about twenty five percent African American about forty five percent, non white and a lot of people in their lives and their neighborhoods. It's almost as though the economic recovery. We're experiencing right now never even happened. Here's what we think is working. We're investing in neighborhoods that have been historically disinvested in everything from parks and public spaces to supporting entrepreneurship, we opened a small business resource center in an area that was knocked getting the kind of attention that it needed because we know that entrepreneurship will empower not just minority business owners, but minority employees were taking steps to. To deal with the addiction rate as you showed a lot of time simply having access to legal representation makes all the difference for somebody facing eviction. And we made sure that our neighborhoods were improved because the issue of blight and vacant abandoned properties was harming neighbors, especially minority neighborhoods. We didn't people didn't think it could be done, but we dealt with the houses in two thousand days by marshalling resources, concentrating and working to fix the problem. When I ask you about something more than medically. You said in two thousand fifteen sort of in the rise of the black lives matter movement that there needs to be racial reconciliation where does that responsibility lie? And what have you done to try to lead a conversation on this well allies with all of us? Of course, if you're a mayor of diversity one of the flashpoints for this is in the relationship between communities of color and the police department, so we worked hard on civil rights training on implicit bias training. But also on getting our police officers to have almost the mentality of city council members to encourage them to do foot patrols to walk the neighborhoods to show up not just when there's an emergency. But when there's. A fun fair or a church event or a block party trying to really thick and those relationships a lot of its quantity time, and whenever we've had a moment or or an incident that has threatened to divide us racially in our city, we've made sure that we invest in the face time that it takes to reestablish trust. But at the end of the day people need to see results, that's how trust is built. And it's one of the things I worry about right now nationally is that you have folks in charge of the government who almost believe as a matter of principle in destroying it. And then when you don't have results when you don't see people's lives getting better it further motivates people to want to bring the house down last month some ice agents, arrested two of your constituents in south bend. What do you make of the idea of the abolish ice movement that is some people in the progressive end of the spectrum have called for? And I know it's illegal to be a sanctuary city in Indiana. But Gary has pushed the envelope. Why haven't you? So we were very hard to be welcoming city because the current immigration policies are. Wrong. People who are really important parts of our community are being torn apart from their families. And this is not making us safer. It is not making us stronger. Now when it comes to is I don't care what the agency in charge of our immigration and border enforcement is called. I care what it does. And as long as you haven't agency, even if you get rid of ice and called it something else being ordered to tear families apart from one another or being ordered to make it harder to get on a path to citizenship. You're going to continue to have heartbreaking stories that are not helping anybody. Whether we're talking about the undocumented immigrants concerned, or whether you're talking about the communities that they're part of I want to move a little bit to where you stand in the party. And what you you heard Joe Biden, he said boy the definition of progressive. Now seems to be changing he says now it's about whether you're a socialist or what's a real progressive. And I know you've you've been somebody is trying to push back on this whole labelling issue. But put yourself on the spectrum here. What what should Democrats seeing you that you what do you want Democrats to see in you idea logically? I think I'm progressive. But I also think the ideological capitalists. What's that?.

"Because the senate's really unusual body requires sixty votes to do most things and only rarely does one party have sixty. So you have to talk to each other. You can't do much in the Senate on strictly. Partisan basis. So this is a beehive of activity during the during the week. It is a very very challenging job. You certainly can't make everybody happy. I mean, here's a way of looking at it. Through some process. You found yourself the leader of your party in the Senate. You got a bunch of classic president types. All have sharp elbows and big egos and on any given day. They probably think they could do job better than you. It's all carrot and no stick. And usually if you try to punish somebody the next time you pay a heavy price for it. Class presidents sharp elbows all carrots, no sticks. The funniest thing. I thought it was I heard him talking about class president types is he was his class president. He was his high school class president at. Depart manual high school in Louisville. He moves to Louisville and he's fourteen. So he's not somebody who's well known throughout the school. It's not like he's been going to school with these kids since he was six years old, but he's a junior running for class president. And he knows he's not particularly popular. But he knows who is popular. So he has a campaign for class president in which he goes up to the captain of the football team, the head of the cheerleaders captain of the baseball team and says, hey, will you support me for class president? And he builds out essentially what we think of today as as a whip list of his supporters and builds a little card and puts it in every locker vote for Mitch McConnell for president and their high school. I think had an unusual arrangement where they had seventh and eighth graders. That were also there. So he knew it was all strategy and tactics he knew that if they saw that the captain of the football team endorsed Mitch McConnell for president. Well, I'm gonna. Vote for the guy. Who's captain the football team. So he is really the ultimate class president type in that regard. And and it even in that campaign you began to see the seeds of what he would do as leader about strategy about tactics part of the part of that strategy and tactics and opportunity the election of two thousand fourteen election that made him majority leader was stamping out. Primary challenges from the right by candidates who were poisonous in general election. He'd been through that situation with Todd akin was a candidate who's made some strange controversial comments about rape with Richard Murdoch similar issue. They lost very winnable seats and McConnell in two thousand fourteen said enough is enough. And I think he took matters into his own hands and very openly opposed people like Chris McDaniel on Mississippi who thought as someone who is flawed and potentially could lose a general election for the Republicans. And that was a very successful thing for him. One thing I will note about McConnell is that his convictions about how the Senate should be run are very much caller. By his the political moment. I'll give you two two things here to January twenty fifth. He says he will not allow the Senate to become a theater for show votes. And he will only bring up legislation that can pass the chamber and become signed into law. Just a few weeks later February twelfth he said he's going to bring up a vote on the green new deal the democratic resolution. Everybody knows that's not going to pass everybody else. That's not gonna become law. It's a political move designed to put the Democrats in a position. One of the underlying themes of the last hour that we've been chatting is the the importance of relationships, particularly in the US Senate. Well, Mitch McConnell has a relatively special relationship. Here's a little bit more video. Obviously, it's great pleasure to be here today. Actually chairman thune. It's probably not the first time the majority leader's bend before this committee. I'm reminded of something Bob Dole said at the confirmation hearing for another transportation nominee..
