PJ ORourke and the search for the centre ground
"These last five years or so have been rough going for a lot of people. Among, them have been those who think of themselves as occupants more or less of the middle of the road, the zealous, the bipartisan the consider as of arguments on their own merits compromises count we all just get along is. So. Polarizing have these times being that even some of those who might in less crazed and Febrile Times have been considered ideological out lawyers appear suddenly reasonable. Special. Guest this week is PJ O'Rourke, the journalist foreign correspondent and satirist who made his name as a conservative contrarian in the nineteen eighty, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s gleefully winding up the liberal subscribers of rolling stone and writing bestselling books including Republican, Party reptile give war a chance and peace kills a rock became if possibly despite himself, the favorite conservative of American liberals being about as much a liberal as American conservatives could stand. His latest book a cry from the farm middle dispatches from the divided land fines rourke. If not exactly standing afford history yelling stop. Then at least flailing gamely at the on rushing tide of dogmatic foolishness with the broom of measured reason and not once does he mangle metaphor nearly as grotesquely that this is the last episode of this program which will be broadcast before a rox fellow Americans make a fairly fundamental decision about what their politics is going to look like from here on can the centre-ground be retaken and is anyone still there? This is the foreign desk. The anarchistic Listrik point of view that is common at the end of the teens in the beginning of the twenties and on for those of us who matured very late. Reality shake you out of that I mean anybody who tells me are an anarchist I'll invite them to revisit Mogadishu with me. Let me show you what anarchy really means. Now non nealer hand is sort of like armed nitwit trump supporters. Maybe should have had a little goal at Northern Ireland back in the eighties. Where that road leads, if you WANNA take that road all the way down to the end of that road Belfast was. Enlightening experience as we're the Balkans and so and saw that light goes to mitigate. Once absolutism and certainly once anarchism knowle's. Page or you welcome to the foreign desk this episode may end up appearing as either the last signal before the ship sinks or the fanfare perhaps of some new door and we need to frame our conversation accordingly indeed find a middle ground which I think is appropriate to certainly the theme of Your New Book the title a cry from the Far Middle Does seem to book in Republican Party. Reptile from Nineteen eighty-seven to an extent. But the question is can the middle ground be made to sound atl sexy and exciting? No. I'm Sir Short Answer. Thank you for joining us. PJ. House that was a quick interview of Frank Answer and a One one been looking for a certain amount of honesty in politics. I just saw something the other day I saw the first honest yard sign that I have seen over here in the states this election campaign, it said settle for Biden. If it weren't for the pandemic I would've gone knocked on their door and give them the big. Hug. But is there a way you think that centrism can be made to sound at all exciting could there be a centrist party reptile. Yeah, it would be very tough, but you know it really I just want to go back to US fighting in our usual way I don't want to put an end to our quarrels with some sort of sweet and mushy kiss on both cheeks wall befriends from now on and forever no I want to go back to a good strong fight between the left and the right. Trouble is to fight has gotten away from the issues. You know the coral it's one of those things like a good old family feud. Coming from an enormous Irish family I am plenty familiar with us. A good family feud where the cause of the the anger is long forgotten and people are just screaming and yelling at each other and threatening each other and misbehaving. In general we want a period where the left and right really had to confront themselves. They had to confront the failure of communism, which is leftism taken to its greatest extreme. The left had to confront the failure of that Ed to confront the failure of their socialist economies in western Europe in in the UK and so on. The right had to then confront the fact that it was much less fund should be empower under Reagan and Thatcher. Then it was to be standing outside pressing your face against window making grievances and obscene gestures and turned out that the free market. Lovely thing though it is, it doesn't solve all our problems magically either so we had to fight that album. It's now been. So long ago since we had those substantive fights that we've forgotten how to argue. So my comparison I don't think actually put this in the book, but missing about sense is that. Are Put aglow arguments have ceased to be real political arguments about real issues as say, no, do we increase the scope of the national health improve its funding and operation or do we modify? It means tested? Give a little larger scope to the private sector Blah Blah. Blah Instead. It's one of those things and anybody who's been in a marriage or partnership it starts out with shall We re Slip Cover the SOFA and it ends up with, and then there was a woman you were flirting with that party in Nineteen ninety-one to which the other half of the partnership response I hate your mother I'd never settled out but I hate your mother, you know. And here we are
Progressives propose Medicare for the Uninsured
"Let's talk about the news of the week. The fight for having a relief. Bill that actually addresses what is going to be a massive health insurance crisis on So we had a bill introduced by Representative John Paul and Bernie Sanders in the Senate and then just Today actually as we're recording this this'll be yesterday as you're listening. Nancy Pelosi and House Leadership Democrat leadership in the House came out with a different proposal. We haven't seen language yet but this is clearly going to be the two kind of competing visions for next relief bill from the Democratic side so far icy silence from the Republican side. We don't even know if they're going support another relief bill at all Although I think the pressure is just going to become a hard to avoid once all of this unemployment leads to lack of insurance soon So the basic overview. Let's let why don't we start with the Sanders? John Paul Bill since that came out. I What they've proposed these of course are the lead sponsors of the Medicare for all legislation in the House and the Senate And this is not a medicare for all proposal. But it's kind of a stopgap proposal during the credit crisis. So what they've said is that Medicare should cover everyone who does not have health insurance And that Medicare will cover all co payments deductibles and cost sharing for everyone else. That's where people who have private insurance who have public insurance Like Medicaid or the Veterans Administration Or Medicare for that matter And that that will Last in effect until a vaccine is widely available to the public And the thinking of course is that we literally just cannot address this pandemic without everyone having access to healthcare Otherwise everyone who slipped through. The cracks of the healthcare system is going to be Is going to be unable to access. Care avoiding care when they need it and more likely to spread The contagion so Stephanie. What do you think about proposal? That came out of Japan. Senator Sanders Office. Well when I first heard about this proposal I thought it was perfect because it gives us a way to sort of expand public health insurance and it also fulfils the moderate concerns about allowing people to stay on their health insurance and all the stupid rationales for supporting a public option versus Medicare for all and that has always been the moderate case against Medicare for all right it's too disruptive maybe amid Medicare for all is in theory better but people are just so happy with their private insurance. Who Am I? Who are we to argue with them? And maybe they need a chance to try it out. And that's the impetus behind the whole public option. And you know they always say that. The of course. The goal is universal healthcare. But what the pathway. How do we get there? You know the details matter well. Here's your chance you know. Millions kicked off their insurance by no fault of their own at a time. When it's not actually safe to go outside but as far as I know no other members of Congress besides Sanders and Paul have supported this plan. Yeah I don't even know if it's been you know. They've barely rolled it out. It just came off the shelf. So we're us. The movement are going to have to build support for this bill. And you know it's interesting because this plan is kind of like some of the competing plans that you know. The centrists who were running for president were running on This doesn't resemble like the Biden plan but it is kind of what like Baidoa Rourke was was backing. It's a little bit like will cover everyone with the public plan. But we'll keep somehow the private health insurance in the workplace health insurance And I think the reason it's important to acknowledge why this is not a replacement for Medicare for all it needs to be. Temporary is the cost right. The the downside of doing it this way is that you don't get most of the savings that you get from Medicare for all system which really comes from like simplifying the system and you're cutting out all this administrative waste hospitals and doctors only have to deal with one pair they don't have to deal with fifty different payers. And that's how Medicare for all works by creating although savings you can afford to cover everyone else afford to have no co payments and deductibles. It is much more expensive to do it. This way to keep the private insurance companies in their keep all this complication waste in the system and expand coverage to everyone But I think you can do it temporarily as a stopgap measure And so I think it would be a good stepping-stone and people we literally cannot address this crisis with more and more people losing access to health insurance so I think it'll be an interesting fight. Yeah and it could arguably be even less expensive than giving subsidies to private health. Insurers who who made just end up pocketing. Well obviously we'll end up pocketing the profits but also will not be actually giving out any care outside of probably a lot of corona virus care because people aren't actually going to the doctor for anything else right now that's a fact that's not arguably that's it would definitely be cheaper to cover people through expanding medicare than it would be through throwing money at private
Why Michigan is the next big Bernie Sanders-Joe Biden battleground
"That is that it's not over yet but it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders and his socialist revolution let's just put it that way it's out he's got it he needs a miracle to come back in and win this thing in the end it or don't have a shot at it he needs to do really well and a lot of these upcoming states he doesn't have my chart margin for error and the reason for that is is that what happened in the a few days after South Carolina was the Democrat establishment coalesced behind Joe Biden really quick and it's pretty clear deals Joe Biden's wouldn't on super Tuesday the DNC machine gave it to on they took it for granted I'm they gave it to him so there's a few things that happen in the lead up to super Tuesday that are really important Terry McAuliffe the former governor of Virginia former DNC chair endorse Joe Biden that means the whole Virginia machine got behind that's why does Clinton though he was outspent by eighteen million dollars by Mike Rosenberg so Clinton's hatchet man Hillary Clinton hatchet man have a cold AF send the message and and then in that in the state of Virginia McCall's machine went to work but I didn't did but barely any campaign events are spent barely any right in Virginia so it's like how the hell did he win that big sorry I didn't mean to say that that that bad everywhere here but how the heck did you win that big of a race on hi I'm fine in in Virginia to the point where Bloomberg didn't even get any delegates after spending eighteen million dollars there Bernie did get a handful of patents out of Virginia but that it wasn't just for Genya Beto Rourke came in from in Texas the genesis machine came in Amy Klobuchar who dropped out at the urging of the party al there's the behind the scenes people the Obamas and so on and so forth I I came in for I'm in Minnesota in Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren the supposedly leftist progressives socialists who really it doesn't actually believe in what she puts forward is more loyal to the party establishment that she is and to the ideas she supposedly espouses and she just dropped out today but she stands in Massachusetts that blocked burning in Massachusetts and in Maine Rodney near nearby neighboring Maine and so on biting winds all these states that he probably should know one and Bloomberg really under performed across Italy he's got already and now warrants out of the race and it's really a two person race and so again Bernie's gonna need a huge night in Michigan he needs to not just win message when Michigan who needs to win decisively he he are coming on Tuesday other states I the upcoming that burning is to do really well in other rust belt states like Maine upper Midwest states like Wisconsin or Pennsylvania Arnaud heiau Bernie Bernie has a swing pass show but it's not looking good form and it's pretty clear they came for Bernie on Tuesday night and they seem to have delivered pretty close to a knock out

"Battle Rourke there's a school of thought that you shouldn't talk about impeachment instead talk about infrastructure and healthcare as if they're mutually exclusive you can't shy away from the most obvious threat to this country Jennifer primary democratic strategist the obsession with concocting the Frank concocting the Frankenstein to take on trump is confined us all it was really about this that the model picture we have here is really this family well I I think once the Democratic Party is more certain about who the nominee is you're going to see a real coming together of everyone I really do believe that the trump represents the best unifier the Democratic Party could ever hope for I think one thing is gonna be interesting Tuesday night Chuck is how does Elizabeth Warren do yeah this is next door for her just like I always was next door for any Amy didn't get in the top four in Iowa the question is will Elizabeth not get in the top four in New Hampshire and what does that mean for both of them it is I think if Elizabeth doesn't get into the top four in New Hampshire then there's not a lot of people trying to poacher voters you know Josh what I look at every resume if you would look at it through the electability lines they all have a fatal flaw and obviously somebody's got to get the nomination and I I'm counting Michael Bloomberg it they all seem to have something like I don't know if that's going to work but one of them is going to have to become the nominee one is going to have to become the nominee and I think one of the things that Democrats are gonna remember from twenty sixteen is this whole question of a narrative I mean that's all exactly what a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters came out of twenty sixteen ticked off because they felt like the DNC told them no no you're kind of supporting the wrong person you can offer you want but shouldn't should be hoping for so one of the things I'm interested to see in twenty twenty is how much debt we will allow Democrats to make their own choice the story of who the party is supposed to support is not up to us now gets up to Democrats and the fact that this process is murky is fine let them vote it's okay for voters to make this decision it's not comfortable it makes it hard for us to not not to cave but if there's one thing that at least the people I talk to came out of twenty sixteen feeling it's that the work to hold what the narrative was supposed to be and they felt like votes were kind of being whipped from the top down I don't know who Democrats gonna pick but I would I would presume they like to pick for themselves so I hear you on that but and there's a lot of theories as to why Hillary Clinton lost in twenty sixteen I covered the entirety of the Bernie Sanders campaign and it was very clear way before that process was over that he was not going to be the nominee mostly because African American voters in the south said we're not going to vote for you and that that was known and he stayed in it anyway and some of the anger is on the Clinton side because they feel like he did damage to her in the nominating process that stretched out for months when it didn't have to so you know I think my question for Democrats is you know it are they going to feel that is an imperative or we can end up in the same place where like all the millions of dollars all the anger is playing out into July while trump is you know trying a doing a victory right now though it's these are the exact opposite because if you just look at a glide path you you would say well Bernie Sanders is probably the most likely nominee and some people would say that's the biggest risk for the Democrat party yeah others would say now the biggest risk is that Bernie won't be the nominee and what does that mean to his way to his quarters and where are they going to go because to the question of Democrats can be unified I would agree with Claire Democrat Democrats will unify behind the nominee whoever it is I mean I never thought it would be as easy for trying to unify Republicans going into the general election after that primary the real question No Way is can that democratic nominee appeal.

Winners and Losers of the Democratic Debate
"The Democratic Party is trying to figure out who it is during these presidential primary debates the big it's the big highlights that you see we'll go through some of them it's all the Sniping Amy Klobuchar and Liz Warren and Kamala Harris get some shots in their Liz worn the people going after Elizabeth Warren then you've got booed edge in Baidoa going after each other and that's all very interesting the central fact of the debate is that Biden is falling apart his polling is collapsing his ability to stand on stage is collapsing Bernie Sanders had a heart attack a week and a half ago he seemed much much more lucid and vibrant and energetic than Joe Biden did and to our knowledge Joe Biden hasn't had any heart attacks this was all about your and he just he was saying things that didn't make a lot of sense he was kind of losing his train of thought he was pushing different analogies together it just didn't and buyer confidence that this is the guy at one point biden was explaining his economic plans and he said he was gonna he was gonNA stop people from clipping coupons in the stock market get what I've talked about is how you get things done and the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now the idea we have to start rewarding work just wealth I would eliminate the capital gains tax that would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate of thirty nine point five percent I would double it because guess what why in God's name should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market make in fact pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is like I said a schoolteacher and a firefighter it's ridiculous and they pay a lower tax so none of that is true nothing he said even comes close to approaching truth to be I don't even know how you judge the truth value of the statement clipping coupons in the stock market because people do not clear up coupons in this I guess they would be really just really good frugal stockbrokers if they clipped like if there were some coupon to get a better price on some mm some portion of a company doesn't make any sense I think what he was trying to say is people gambling in the stock market that's that's a frequent analogy you hear from the left and that it's unfair the people who are gambling are paying lower tax rate than their secretaries this is aligned Warren Buffett's used this line it just isn't true it is not true at all where does it come from it's because the capital gains tax rate is lower than the income tax rate for some people actually eat for people Oh who you know if you're talking about your secretary you're talking about the you know the janitor is paying more higher tax rate than the the stockbroker or the on manager of that perhaps isn't isn't true anyway even on the income tax rate but what happens is for a lot of people work in finance they get a salary but then they get most of their money as a bonus or in when you're talking about the millionaire billionaire class they're paying capital gains on the or paying capital gains taxes on their investment income so you're not even talking about bonuses you're not talking about income you talk about money that's in the market that's investments and then the money that you make out of those investments you pay a lower tax rate even on that that is money that has already been taxed at the corporate level so even that argument is not true but y the way this gets interpreted is that billionaires are paying less money in taxes than their secretaries that is never that's not even close to true the wealthy in this country pay virtually all of the taxes the top ten percent pay the vast majority of taxes in this country top one percent pay a lion share of taxes in this country I mean the half of the country doesn't pay any taxes at all in terms of federal income taxes so this whole argument is bogus the problem with Biden is not that he's making a bogus argument everybody was up there said he wasn't even making the argument well and he was confusing his words and then here's the knockout punch they brought up Ukraine Anderson Cooper brings up Ukraine and Joe Biden incredibly lies on camera again and says he never discussed Ukraine with us President Yeah as you've said your son Hunter today gave an interview admitted that he made a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving on the board in Ukraine and did you make a mistake by letting him you're the point person on Ukraine at the time if you can answer book my son statement speaks for itself I did my job never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having to do with their crane known is indicated I have we've always kept everything separate even when my son was the attorney general of the state works we never discussed the there'd be no potential conflict okay there's a lot of confusion here first of all he says he's doubling down on a statement that he made that no one his ever suggested that Joe Biden talked with Ukraine or talked with his son about Ukraine and there's no evidence of that at all the trouble is someone has suggested that the person who suggested that was Hunter Biden in a New Yorker profile in July and he actually reiterated that statement on good morning Arca on ABC News two days ago did you and your father ever discuss you know as I said only time was after news count it wasn't a discussion in any way there's no to this no we never did what hold on hold on you say did you ever discuss Ukraine he goes no just one time there was one time we I'll shoot they told me not to say that no there's no but we didn't we wasn't even a discussion sure we said something he said something we were talking about it but that's not I wouldn't call that a discussion it was more of a discourse it was more of a Colo Que- it was next question place past next question Joe Biden even in his answer by the way he says we never talked about Ukraine even when my son was the attorney general of Delaware that's not the sun we're talking about joe his Sun Beau Biden his late son Bo Biden was the attorney general of Delaware the son who was on the Ukrainian Energy Board was Hunter Biden and hundred says he did talk about it and Hunter Biden goes on because good morning America their credit actually pushed him on it. There's an old saying you didn't talk about it then you're saying you did talk about it by the way what were you doing on the board in the first place that I hope you know what you're doing doing I said I do and that was literally the discussion why because my dad was vice president United States there's literally nothing as young man or as a full grown adult that my father in some way has not influence over as it does not serve either one of us when he said I hope you know what you're doing what did he think you were doing well he read the press reports that I joined the board of reasonable which was eight Ukrainian natural gas company and there's been a lot of misinformation Shen about me not about my dad nobody buys at but advises idea that I was unqualified to be on the board what were your qualifications to be on the border berries I was sharing with the board Amtrak for five years I was the chairman of the board of the UN World Food Program I was a lawyer for boies Schiller flexner one of the most prestigious law firms in the world didn't have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself though no but I think that I had as much as anybody else that was on the board for yeah this is this is not going well for Hunter Biden because he's right he probably didn't have any less knowledge than anyone else on the board this is a crooked board that's what really anti boards are certainly an oligarch countries like Ukraine when and corrupt countries like Ukraine they say what previous experience did you have what qualified you to be on the board of this Ukrainian energy company while you're while your father was vice president as well I was on the board of Amtrak you know that other company that has a relationship to the federal government that my father famously travels on so much that they call him Amtrak Joe Yeah it was on that so what are you calling me a nepotistic for and before that I was on another board and hey look I did have one real job I worked for boies Schiller which is maybe the most famous democratic lobbying law firm in the country okay all right doesn't acquit himself very well here so biden collapses on stage in real time two ways to respond to this for the Democratic Party and for the candidates they can either remain hardline progressives or they can try to take Bernie Haddens place in the moderate lane because the moderate lane now is falling apart so there is an opening here I was wondering I thought why on Earth was the Lgbtq townhall on Friday what was the purpose of this and then it occurred to me people were tweeting about this they had that LGBTQ crazy town town all on Friday because then it allowed the Democrats to look more moderate at this debate just a week later less than a week later while we're having to discuss any of the LGBT issues in the pronouns and the genders so there was a real opening and I think the Democratic Party tried to try to make sure it looked in opening four moderate now some candidates can't take that Bernie Sanders is never going to be a moderate he went full bore leftist last night he said on the collectivist issue Parekh Salon climate change you said it's the greatest threat that the planet has ever faced this planet faces the greatest threat in its history from climate change and the green new deal that I have advocated will create up to twenty million jobs as we move away from fossil fuel energy efficiency and sustainable energy all right the weather which may or may not increase in temperatures slightly a little bit over the next century he is the greatest threat the planet has ever faced says Bernie Sanders the man who probably never heard of the Cretaceous Paleo gene mass extinction event three quarters of it wiped out he probably hasn't heard of that one so he's just it's a little historical ignorance for him that's the far left that's about as far left as you go with Bernie Sanders Baidoa Rourke so trying to play into that left Lane Betas campaign is falling apart I mean there's pretty much no reason should be at this debate anymore and so he's he's been trying to signal that he's as left as they come over the past few months this is after a career where he played himself off mostly as a moderate in Congress and so he obviously doesn't believe in anything but he felt leftism was going to bring them all the way it looks like that's not gonna work so he's one last tries going to say that we're going to undermine the second amendment he's GonNa take away all your guns go door to door take them all away how exactly are you going to force people to give up their weapons you don't even know who has those weapons look we're GonNa make sure the the priority is saving the lives of our fellow Americans I think almost everyone on this stage agrees that it's not right and as president would seek to ban the sale of fifteens and AK47's those are weapons of war they were designed to kill people effectively efficiently on a battlefield to be clear exactly how are you going to take away
Elizabeth Warren faces attacks in Democratic debate
"Last night there were about forty seven no I think it was down to a dozen we've we've whittled down the debate field now that we have last of the fourth democratic presidential debate and one of the interesting things for those of you who didn't watch it in the first couple everybody went after Joe Biden it seemed this time the candidates were all going after Elizabeth Warren which might suggest that some of the momentum has shifted just a bit let's see Elizabeth Warren does she had to defend a lot I think she held around honestly I think that the judge did a pretty good job I think told C. Gabbard is still an interesting character I don't really know what to make of her better Rourke I thought did a better job than he's done in past debates but I think it might be time for him to consider some some other avenues overall though I am not sure people are still engaged because we had said earlier as the first couple debates unfurled we said more people start paying attention as it gets closer towards the end of the year but actually the number of people watching dropped from about twenty seven million to fourteen million overall who did you think did well and who did you think needed some help Charlie who do you think won't be back on the stage for the next time they don't you're probably right about Beto and town Stiers as name I don't think running a lot of ads on morning TV yeah well he's he's a billionaire as they point out he was the only billion are up there and they they went after billionaires last night they did go after Elizabeth Warren now Cory Booker said that the you know Hey we all got to unify we can't getting up you know what he was wrong I mean they're all issue oriented they weren't delivering ad hominem attacks to Elizabeth Warren I mean compared to Republican debates the likes of which we saw in two thousand sixteen this was mild in comparison and I thought they brought up a good point you know she's a good talk about expanding Medicare okay and Medicare for all health insurance but she refused to answer if she would increase taxes on the middle class and you know three times she said will cost will not go up so I I think she's saying your taxes will go up but you'll still save money because your deductibles or co pays your premiums will be lower but you know that's what one thing a lot of people don't like about Washington where you can't answer the question directly do you want a tax increase and I think that that's going to come back to bite or at some point yeah I think what hurts the Democrats is not necessarily the number of candidates but just the candidates themselves if I'm if I'm Donald Trump yeah stop talking about Syria or Turkey I would just do one tweet and that is watch the democratic debates because my take away was how incredibly far left the democratic candidates are I mean you have told C. Gabbard considered a moderate because she had to go out of her way to say abortions should be safe legal and rare because the idea here is the democratic candidates one unrestricted abortions for any reason at and then there was the issue of churches and schools not losing there are skinny losing their tax exemption status is non profit if they don't accept same sex marriage now listen what you're telling churches then is that you cannot believe in marriage as outlined in the Bible that is the foundation of your faith and then of course there's the guns issue I mean if they made it very clear they want to the ultimate goal is to take away all guns and so if you are watching these democratic debates these are hands down the most far left proposals we've ever seen from the entire litany of debates again remember that tells the galleries a moderate because she thinks abortion should be safe legal and rare up to twenty weeks only seven countries in the world allow abortions after twenty weeks and then also the three countries that have more risk excuse me all the more liberal abortion laws in the US North Korea China Vietnam three communist countries in the U. S. that's what we have in common well I thought I thought Tulsi Gabbard was interesting she I think is the only one who wants a U. S. forces out of Syria I think and she seems to indicate she doesn't want United States engaging in regime change I kind of agree with that overall and I think actually mostly Democrats would too but it you know it flies in the face of Donald Trump to some extent although Elizabeth Warren said she didn't want troops out of the Middle East in general okay yeah you know in that's one thing it's it's difficult when you have twelve people up there I think you alluded this earlier you know you have let's say three hours among twelve people it's kind of difficult to figure out
O'Rourke doubles down on gun buyback plan after Buttigieg criticism

"In the Democratic Party Beto Rourke relied on a core group of business minded Republicans in his Texas hometown to launch and sustain his political career to win their backing mister O'Rourke opposed. Obamacare voted against dancy Pelosi is the House Democratic leader and called for a raise in the social security eligibility age. He was on the campaign trail in Iowa yesterday painting across the country listening to everyone not just to Democrats to make sure how we find sensitive to accomplish this. That's all part of this more on the background of the former Texas congressman from reporter Reid. Epstein at the Wall Street Journal read what did you find we looked at his twenty twelve race? Congress. He ran in a democratic primary and El Paso, which like a lot of big cities is a primarily a democratic town. And so if you wanna get elected you need to be. Key behind your name. And he ran a primary against an incumbent democratic congressman. In that resource. Basically ran as the Republican candidate in the democratic primary. He had support from the local business community. A lot of Republicans who have millions of dollars to our donors will get millions of dollars to other Republicans supported him and most critically for this presidential campaign that he's started on Thursday. He adopted a lot of ideas that kindly on by Democrats twenty nine thousand feet. He opposed the Affordable Care Act, which is now universally embraced by Democrats. And he was for means testing entitlements and also raised of a social security retirement age, which are things that generally get resistance in today's Democratic Party. And he was against Nancy Pelosi returning as house speaker. Well, he he didn't have a vote in on her first speaker this year because he was out of congress, but in two thousand sixteen he voted against the House Democratic leader after the two thousand sixteen elections when Democrats win you say to he's avoiding the progressive title word, which seems to be popular and democratic circles right now. Yeah. He's avoided labels of all kinds. In during the Senate race at Texas. There were a lot of questions about what had democrat was he because he didn't have much of a record in the house to run on a lot of. House Democrats without much seniority while Republicans control. There wasn't a whole lot to do. So. Distinguished record and congresses of passing working on legislation of major substance. And so he was able to really define himself in that race. He managed to do. So without a lot of bright lines about. So where is on the party's idiological, spectrum speaking with Wall Street Journal, political reporter Reid Epstein in Iowa, you said his come together message may be a liability. Well, we'll find out. I mean, he talks a lot about unity and sort of bringing people. Says it solutions can't be one can't be one from one party or another then you'd have more than half the people. All of which is sort of a message Taylor toward a general election, whether all work in a a primary or caucus process in which only the most partisan are typically, the most partisan democratic Democrats participate. We'll see, you know, he's running against candidates like with Warren and Bernie Sanders who are making it clear, and they are putting forward very progressive democratic ideas to try to push the country forward and weather hit us vestige. We'll we'll gain traction among. Is something that we're going to find out over the course of the next year any issues he seems to be standing firmly on. On the border on immigration issues for that's his signature his signature beliefs. Their talks about immigration is a net benefit other country about a problem in really trying to contrast himself, the President Trump on that front. But but a lot of these sort of bread and butter butter for Democrats. He's voided sort dishes off. Thanks read, Wall Street Journal, reporter Reid Epstein on the campaign trail in Iowa..

But we got invite you. That's it Senate candidate battle Rourke goes to bat for illegal immigration and universal healthcare during a town hall at Texas State university over the weekend. The democrat also touched on text messages sent out last week to his supporters asking them to give legal immigrants or ride to the polls. So they can vote. Apparently, there was someone sending out text messages on behalf of our campaign, but not approved by our campaign as soon as we were made aware of it. We put an end to it. And that person is not allowed to text for us anymore. You saw the texting issue. But what about you giving illegal immigrants arrived to vote answer that question? Kenny illegal immigrants vote for you. Mr. Rourke has been growing speculation that could actually unseat longtime, Texas Senator Ted Cruz. In fact, there's several articles over the weekend. And some of our biggest newspapers in the country that say that Ted Cruz is kind of in the hot seat here. Lot of a lot of you know, the political talking heads on both sides of the battle has a real shot at this thing. I think it's going to be taught I do. But as I've said, I don't trust polls. I think polls are pretty much meaningless. So I think this race is only close because of Ted Cruz. If it was another Republican candidate berto wouldn't have a chance. Yeah. There's still a lot of negativity towards Ted Cruz because Donald Trump was so critical of him on the campaign trail, some Republicans are still upset with Ted Cruz. Well, they're upset also about his his performance at the. At the convention. It was. It was a tough thing for a lot of Republicans to swallow. And he probably lost a lot of faithful that night. But I he's going to win it. I think it's probably going to be a bigger margin than we think. But again, it's it'll come down to that night. I just I'm not concerned that he's gonna lose. I don't you know. He's everywhere aerobics everywhere. He's got a lot of money to spend. We're seeing the signs ever. It seems like there's a saturation of him which might appear that he's got more momentum going, but I don't I don't know. That's the case. Did you get a chance to watch the US open, and it turned really controversial? Yeah. Serena Williams, she'd lost the US open final after some emotional outbursts with the chair umpire. Well, here's the story. Williams was assessed a second set code violation for illegal coaching. Serena told umpire Carlos Ronald it was just a thumbs up signal after a second violation for breaking a racket. Serena lost one point. She also demanded an apology for being labeled a cheater following third violation for verbal abuse. Williams lashed out. Courtesy ESPN Williams. Lost the match Japan's Naomi Osaka. Babur tally. Fox news. Bottom line. What we had here is the veteran tennis player getting her ass beat by this younger player, which unfortunately is kind of going unnoticed bright Asaka deserves her chance there at the podium. Yeah. She was crying and apologized for beating her just so happy to be here. I'm very sorry. The crowd was booing her this child because she beat a great athlete. Why couldn't have I couldn't the spectators? Why couldn't the announcers just give her the first first female Japanese player to win while everyone's open. They were booing because they didn't agree with some of the calls. I guess, but some of them might have been doing because they didn't agree with Williams behavioral and was a rough weekend for Serena Williams fide a total of seventeen thousand dollars three code violations during the US open the tournament referees office Sunday, docked Williams, ten grand for verbal abuse of the chair umpire Carlos Ramos four thousand for being worn for coaching and three thousand four breaking her racket during the match. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I couldn't stay in her behavior. You know, whatever happened. I don't think it happened because she wanted accused of. Any of this because she was a woman. It was not a sexist. Call come on. I made on the men's side. She may you know, what it depends on what the circumstances are. And maybe maybe there was something personal. Maybe this this this up that that that made the call whoever made the call they needed Liker. Maybe didn't I don't like her. I don't like how you're making the case for her to be mad. Well, I don't know. I don't know. I have no idea, but you don't like her. I never had. I it's it's I've never liked to her personality. I've never liked her sister's personality, I think they're both really really just they're divas. Do I respect their game? Yeah. In sports. With me. Anyway, they're like a lot of golfers, for example. Like him. I won't want them to win. I won't care if they win or not in a lot of it. I can't pinpoint what it is. Just there's some like semi don't some. I don't even wanna look at. You know, I to be honest. I've never heard anybody say anything bad about among follow the US open the way you do among tennis players. They're a lot of folks that just don't like they're very brash. They're very lab. I don't find him likable people. That's that's it. That's mostly it for me. I don't find the Williams sisters likeable people. So I've never given a rip if they won or lost. Well, listen, I think that the coaching call the coaching violation was an overreaction by that umpire might have been the coach just gave her a thumbs up. Hey, good job. That's not coaching. So there you go. Michael in south Austin? Good morning. Hey, good morning. They usual this somebody texting illegals have right to vote. Why is that not a formal investigation who they could just stopping the texting is not gonna solve the problem? The slide is going to happen. You think he legal immigrants are voting? I think that can happen. Sure. Sure. It's it's been reported. There have been many stories over the years. I don't think I don't think it's in the numbers of like busloads of folks going to the polls. One more was not acceptable. He he he he has an answer the question the right way. He hasn't addressed the topic at hand. Content of the tax skirted over the he he said it was an unapproved text. Is that mean, it just didn't get approved? Do you approve of the messages battle battle Rourke five one two eight three six zero five ninety nine Sean Sean on three sixty good morning. Sean. Good morning guys. I think what the Serena Williams thing he might be suffering from a little bit of a perception problem because I remember a match or two ago where they have the judges that call the serve the service line. And she didn't like a call and says she's gonna you know, it the way they took it. She said that you're gonna kill them for making that call and just ran straight to the care NGO violated for that. Yeah. And then she's had some other racquet issues. So I think unfortunately, she might be suffered from reception problems. And they're pretty hard on her on the. We see the men lose their cool all the time in tennis and. We call it outspoken, and look how look how dedicated to the game they are. But if she does then she's hysterical and craze McEnroe, man. I felt the same way about him. I never liked McEnroe amazing player just shunning player. But I never thought any of his behavior was was was right. I didn't it wasn't justified. And it was a really really unsportsmanlike stay with us. So we got Trump tweets..
