"In two thousand five congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz introduced a house resolution urging then president george w bush to proclaim a month that would recognize the more than three hundred and fifty years of jewish contributions to american culture. The resolution passed unanimously. As did a similar one in the senate and the month of may was selected as jewish american heritage month. Debbie wasserman schultz joins us now to discuss some of those contributions congresswoman. It's good to be with you again. Welcome back to people the pod. Thank you. I feel like it would be awkward to start our without acknowledging what is unfolding in israel as we speak and the debate about israel that's unfolding in congress. You gave a very moving speech on the house floor last week. In which you said. Israel has taken serious steps to deescalate the conflict while hamas has only escalated. Its attacks so it's especially irresponsible to demonize israel's conduct while ignoring her right to self-defense. Why is there such disagreement. And what do you believe. Some of your colleagues do not understand about israel. I honestly think this is an example of the necessity of educating our colleagues about the importance and his history of the unc. Israel relationship the importance of bringing members of congress to israel so that they learn more not just about the orange jewish state but about the beacon of democracy that israel is the similarities between our two countries and israel's identical priorities in terms of standing up for injustice and the basis of their laws being such that equal treatment under the law is a priority whereas when you're dealing with hamas you can't look at how mom it's anything other than a terrorist bernama legitimate political organization. Yes they have had people elected where they try to pretend to be both legitimate political party terrorist organization. You can't be and so education is really the key thing

I was thinking about Howard Schultz because when he first came on the scene in this conversation. I said there's a possibility for Howard Schultz wheel possibility for Howard Schultz. I think that there is a path and see why this drives Democrats crazy. You have people who are just tired of the left in your people who are tired of Trump. And e you fill this middle. Now, does it work in practice? Not really always works in theory. It's not in practice. But I said, I think there's something interesting here. I forgot about him. I forgot about him. And I read the story, and I said this is not the moment for Howard Schultz. And the reason I say that is that I think that the left is. So messed up. So unbelievably radicalized, I'm not saying that Trump is this beacon virtue. But they're so between the anti-semitism the anti-americanism the the green new deal hysteria. Everything being this kind of of li- the collusion conversation cetera caught in lies purposefully lying. Adding two more and more further out there kind of positions. I think the Americans are like screw it up for Trump. I got a job kid has a job taxes allow Connie's good.

"schultz" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"To me, this is a big deal not because of Howard Schultz per se because his candidacy reds, president might amount thing. It's just I am fascinated when so-called experts who who take months and months analyzing the political spectrum get totally gobsmacked, I've been totally wrong. And that means they're experts in their consultants advising has been wrong. The story today is that Howard Schultz has just his shell-shocked. He cannot for the life of him understand. Why he is being ridiculed by people in his own party while he did come out as an independent, but he can't understand why people on the left are mocking him and laughing at him and telling him not to run and 'having on him. He understand it. And he's out there saying, I don't understand. Why people are mad at me. I am the American dream I born in Brooklyn for nothing, I scrimped, and I saved and I worked. Mr scholtz. Don't you understand? That's not. That's that's no longer acceptable as a route to success to the American left. You you are the enemy self made is the enemy self reliant ruggedly individual you are the enemy because it means you have exploited other people. Mr. Scholtz, you've exploited people. If you think you've done it on your own. You didn't do any on your own Mr. shields. You didn't build that. Have you missed all your democrat buddies attacking people for them. What do you expect what's going to happen? They're going to forget all that lay down greet you because you think you're one of them you didn't build Starbucks, Mr Schulz. You exploited people and took advantage of circumstances. It not nearly anybody else says, and you don't even really own that you didn't even really build it. He's clueless box. He hasn't the slightest idea why? The left wants him to shut up and go away. He doesn't understand that as an independent. He helps Trump. Well, they think he doesn't understand it. So the update on the story is Schultz smears, Warren, Harris, Casio Cortez. An all progressives. This is an opinion piece in the hill dot com. And it's all about the fact that Howard Schultz is acting. Why is everybody mad at him? Well, he went on attacked everybody. This P says he didn't like the policy ideas of the extreme far left. And he went out there and said so and that means he attacked them. Just like Republicans sees. On. Liberal positions to paint Democrats as radical Howard Schultz seized on liberal policy ideas to attack them. So he has been found guilty of attacking Kamala. Harris, Elizabeth Warren Alexandria, ocasio Cortez. And this is the price. He pays for it. So now the drive by media is joining the refrain against Howard Schultz in the stories chills is so bugged by this. If he's rethinking doing the whole thing. Now again, I've got no brief for Howard Schultz. Don't misunderstand. I just am fascinated this guy, supposedly brilliant expert marketing and all of that he has spent. Maybe years planning his presidential announcement planning. The announcement is agenda and it blew up in one day. All because he not even he understands his own movement. He doesn't even understand how radical out of bounds. They have become. And he now is being bitten by it. Here's another example. Michael Moore, fresh off the latest bomb of a movie that he made. Michael Moore says the wealthy are not self made. If they use city water and attended public universities. Howard Schultz says the people in New York and all these other cities delivering the water underground to him. Howard Schultz somehow cheated. He's got all these people delivering the water for coffee undergrad, he paid for that Howard Schultz, pay taxes. So that these services can be provided to him and everybody else. Rather than embrace his great American success story, you'll make her at about socialists. Michael Moore tore into Howard Schultz Thursday night during an interview on NBC's late night with Seth Meyers. Michael Moore himself, a multimillionaire who looks good in a baseball cap took issue with Schultz's use of the term self made. See I told you there is no self made to the American left. You are the enemy if your self made because nobody is. Schultz said I'm a self made billionaire, and that's when the long knives came out. Life long democrat is running for president as an independent because he says the democrat party has become too radical to left wing, although he takes progressive in social positions is main messages for democrat constituents to embrace upward mobility without destroying the economy through harmful socialist policies. And he doesn't know why they are savaging him. And Michael Moore. Not having any of this talk about Schultz being self made. Michael Moore told Seth Meyers Schultz couldn't be self made. Because public housing is a form of socialism. He went to a public university taxpayer supported he went to northern Michigan university, actually. Michael Moore, drove home is Marxist philosophy by taking aim at the American bootstraps ethos of hard work and upward mobility. He says this myth this myth that we're raised on the Horatio Alger story that anyone can make it an American anyone can be a millionaire that anyone can be president. Well, we know that's not true that Michael Moore to a standing ovation. The Howard Schultz says Michael Bloomberg's they better get a clue because they're tone deaf to the fact that people have had it. By the way. Doom. Berg is next. I saw doom Berg I saw video of doom. Berg boomberg Newburgh is out there attacking very subtly Cortez. And some of these other millennials what he's doing. He's basically she they have nothing new. He's acting jealous. Actually that is doomed Berg is acting jealous of these young people getting all of this claiming credit for what they think because doom Burg's out this, and I've been thinking this stuff for years. This isn't anything new. I been this is stuff that made me. He's he's he's going to be there next target because he is subtly attacking them. The Howard shelters and Michael Bloomberg's they better get a clue because they're tone tone-deaf to the fact that people have had it. That's why people support taxing the rich. They see other countries have free healthcare. We've got some good candidates running. And some of them are running on this free healthcare free this free that. Next up, Elizabeth Warren. I I mentioned the top of the program. And I actually think these people are committing suicide. I would mitt this is a whole. I really hope they are. I hope there are enough of us left that this is party suicide. But here we go Elizabeth, and I think it's happening again, not to be redundant. They've got nowhere to go. They can't go to the center. The Democrats cannot go to the center to attract these process, independents and moderates because Trump is there. Senator Elizabeth FOCA Honda's Warren wants billionaires like Howard Schultz, and Michael doom Berg to subscribe to the United States social contract and pay their fair share in taxes. She said that on CNBC yesterday. She was being interviewed by that mad money guy. Jim Cramer FOCA Honda said I want these billionaires to stop being freeloaders I want him to pick up their fair share. That's how we make a system that works. Not just for the rich and the powerful but works for all of us. Folks. These people are recycling things that are fifty years old the rich aren't paying their fair share. They're obviously trying to capitalize on the millennials and the gen Z or whatever the next ones are who probably haven't heard this. And who are in polling segment, they're attracted to the concept of socialism. But the top one percent of earners right now, which is much more than just doomed Berg and Howard Schultz, by the way, the top one percent are paying more than thirty percent. Thirty seven percent of all income taxes. Now, what about that is them not paying their fair? Share? On Thursday, FOCA hottest broke down. Her problem with billionaires even those who contribute to charities and do good social works quote. The thing about taxes is everybody who is an ultra millionaire has to pay a portion not just those sign up. Not just those a wave their hands and say, I'll do it as long as it goes to a particular charity. I like that you're obligation. That's part of the social contract that's part of being a citizen of the United States. What? It's nonsensical. Anyway, she says she wants to raise taxes on because that paying your fair share and that additional money would go to childcare lowering student loan debt or a green new deal. She didn't stop there. She told an interviewer for doom. Berg that capitalism without rules is theft. This is from a woman that got rich by flipping houses that were foreclosed on by Fannie, and Freddie may and by pretending to be an engine. Okay. So eliminating student loans eliminating student loan debt. Why were they even need to be sued along? Education is going to be free. By the way, I'm going to have to expand on this. There are a number of the handful four five Republican elected officials who are they heard me the other day say that as a political strategy asking Democrats how they're going to pay for all this. I said, that's I don't think that's gonna work anymore. Not not as a means of persuasion. I look I don't gets going to make people not support. What the Democrats are saying the idea of having to pay for it. And the reason is because I don't I'm not sure how well it's ever worked to tell you the truth. But especially now with as much debt national debt, the annual budget deficit of it is clear that we don't have any money and yet. We're spending money like there's no into it. There. There's no fiscal discipline anywhere in our national life. There isn't any. Now certain people are not being given everything they want, but when it comes to overall expenditure, the government's not cutting back on anything we're not acknowledging we have a deficit. We're not acknowledging we have a national. We're gonna Obama the first thing he goes after being elected inaugurated is come up with this magic almost one trillion dollar stimulus and nobody opposed it. Because we didn't have the money. Well, the tea party did and they came to white, but Obama's people that Obama didn't lose anybody voted for him. Because of that, my point is as a means of persuasion demanding to know, how the Democrats are gonna pay for it. It's a logical question to ask and economically. It makes all the sense in the world. I'm simply talking about as a means of persuading people to oppose or question, the democrat agenda how to pay for it. I just I don't know that it works. I'd love to be wrong about this. I think there are other ways of demonstrating we don't have the money what that means rather than just because clearly not having the money is not stopping these proposals. If we don't have the money, what is this free healthcare for everybody. If we don't have the money, what is free education for everybody. If we don't have the money. What is free health care for all illegal immigrants? If we don't have the money. Why is anybody proposing it if we didn't have the money, the Democrats wouldn't be proposing proposing this because it doesn't matter whether we have the money they're going to spend it any way or they're gonna make people think they're going to spend it they're gonna make people think they're Santa Claus. The fact that we don't have the money is not going to stop democrat voters from them from voting democrat. But the. Results of not.

He's just formerly coming out now and saying that he might be considering note, he is considering he's Concetti might might running. Correct. You know, hey, I'm from a couple of schools of thought on this. It's a democracy. Anybody should be able to throw his or her hat into the ring if they feel compelled to go in compete for the presidency. So Howard Schultz more power to 'em to launch in there and see what he can do. That said I mean, if you wanna get into the personal personal politics of it. Howard Schultz would not even win. A city council seat in Seattle, let alone on a national basis, and there are several things that actually actually struck me here. We're based here in Seattle were part of the coastal elites if you will. Or however, you want to call it, you know, this, and I think Howard Schultz is a product of that born in New York grew up in New York has lived much of his adult professional life in Seattle. He's a product of the coasts, and my personal opinion is this next presidential election is not going to be won by people who represent the coasts. It's going to be the heartland my home state of Ohio, it's going to be people that can identify with the problems of people in Ohio, and Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in Indiana, an Iowa and the upper midwest if you want to win the presidency, thou those are the people that you need to convince and I don't think Howard Schultz is that person. But maybe he obviously believes he is he believes that he can not only win it or at least contend, but do it as an independent, and it was interesting. Jay inslee. The other person from Washington. State who's considering a happens to be the governor? Yes. He came out and said that was reckless of Howard disagree with that. I mean, I think it's a democracy in any. And there's no reason that we have to have these two gangs of Republicans and Democrats as the only people that are competing for this office. Now, do I think it would potentially screw things up for the Democrats. Yes. Do I think that's a problem given the current political situation we have yes? But I mean, it's it's I don't think there's an reason why our Scholtz shouldn't be able to to do this. Now, some may say he can only do it and only run because he's been able to amass this massive fortune that allows them to do it not no ordinary Joe or Jane can go out and decide they're going to be an independent candidate. And actually have a chance of winning. What do you think of the fact that it's Inslee and Scholtz of all the people who could be running from you might say going on this because this was this was we were talking on our slack a little bit about this. And this was actually. A column idea that I threw out there was with all the great people from Washington state, and there are many why do we have these two that are potentially representing? What's what's your problem with these? I mean, they're both. I think they're genuinely decent people. But they're not my first choice of people. So I would like to see step up and serve our country and lead us out of the morass..

"schultz" Discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts
"So I just want to put that out there. But let's talk a little bit about what we know about Howard Schultz. So far first of all he's a he's a longtime Democrats even though he's probably considering he is considering a run as an independent now. And he's also very concerned about the national debt. I mean, for example, I'm going to play a bit of tape here. This is Scholtz on MSNBC's morning. Joe yesterday saying that both Democrats and Republicans have been reckless with the nation's economy, the Democrats and Republicans under the last twenty years on both parties have been complicit in a in creating twenty one and a half trillion dollar debt that is a reckless immoral abandonment of leadership so lead Rotman. Men Schultz's being described right now as a fiscally conservative socially liberal K potential candidate who is his constituency in America. It's people who sit in boardrooms with Howard Schultz read the Acela train with Howard Schultz, not that many people beyond that. So so sort of the punditry in the in the Bill, and the millionaire billionaire classes. Yeah, basically. Yeah, they'll they'll they might want somebody like Howard shelter though. They might also care whether Trump is president or not and might not what spoilt the election by voting for him. Well, let's talk about this a little bit more because in your research. I'm looking at this graphic that you've created of the 2016 electorate, and it's there's two dimensions of it. Right. There's there's this sort of political social identity from from conservative to liberal on one axis, and then the neck economic dimension about being very conservative on economic issues are very liberal, and there's one particular quadrant. This of this graph that's like virtually empty, and that is the the the socially liberal, fiscally conservative quadrant here. So I mean, how few people are we talking about here that's about four percent of the electorate count. So so not not very many people. Not not enough to elect a president. Okay. So then why is there the persistence of this belief amongst as you're saying, you know, financially or politically powerful people or pundits that there's this giant constituency of Americans who who are really concerned about these things. Well, because they talked to each other, and they're really concerned about these things. So they think well everybody I talked to must be really concerned about these things, but they don't get out of their bubbles very much and talk to people who don't ride the Acela train. Okay. So then who are the independence in America? Well, okay. So we got about forty percent of people who say they're independent, which is a nice thing for people to say that they are because they like thinking that. Well, I I don't belong to any party. I think for myself, but most people tend to vote for one party or the other. I mean, if you wanna talk about true independence, people who really don't feel like like they like either party. That's maybe five to ten percent most. But most. People like to say, they're independent because it sounds nice. But they don't really vote like independence. They consistently vote for either Democrats are consistently vote for Republicans. Okay. So so there's just a smaller fraction then you're saying that of voters who irregularly willing to cross party lines. Yeah. I would say that. That's true. Now, the fact that forty percent of people do register as independence does tell us. Something people are are indeed frustrated with with the lack of choices in our party system. But most people think one party is better in one party is worse alternatives. Interesting now to get back for a second to the the Howard Schultz model of fiscally conservative socially liberal. And as you're saying that sort of the Acela corridor crowd you're talking about here. It does seem to me from your research that you're implying that he he's basically the polar opposite of what actually is potentially a large group of of voters who were who were quite significant in the two thousand sixteen election. That's the socially conservative fiscally liberal crowd. Yeah. So we call those populous it's probably about my by by my estimate about twenty nine percent of the electorate, which is people who.

What Howard Schultz is bid for the White House could be in for Starbucks. Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is potential bid for the White House could be problematic for the coffee chain. Just as it starting to rebound from a slump in the United States. Joining me now from Los Angeles is Wall Street Journal reporter, Julie jargon. Julia. We should start by pointing out that Scholtz campaign has angered many people, namely Democrats who argue his candidacy would split the vote and propel President Trump to a second term in the White House. But so far shelters been brushing off that criticism, right? He his continuing to appear on television news programs in an appearance on CBS this morning. He said that he must be doing something right because he's getting so much attention. So at the moment, he doesn't appear to be backing down. Now when it comes to Starbucks Schultz also made waves for the company when it comes to expressing his political opinions or even in one instance, where he encouraged employers to engage in charge conversations with. Starbucks customers. Right. There have been different moments of backlash in the past at one point he encouraged baristas to engage customers in conversations about race relations. He asked them to write race together on people's coffee cups, and that angered a lot of customers who said that they just want to get a Cup of coffee, and they don't want it to be politicized. He also inspired calls for boy Kat threats a couple of years ago when he announced plans to hire more than ten thousand refugees and people were saying why don't you hire Americans veterans, which he has been doing. He's been hiring a lot of veterans as well during his time at Starbucks, but the other maneuvers times in the past when he's taken a stand on certain issues, and it's inspired outcries. But these cases were when Scholtz was still the head of the company, so why is his potential candidacy causing problems for Starbucks? When he no longer runs the company. Well, for one thing a lot of people probably don't realize that he has step. Away from the company he retired officially in June of two thousand eighteen as chairman of the board. But he is probably always going to be forever linked with Starbucks. He was the one who didn't found it. But he he got involved when there were only four stores, and he expanded the Starbucks brand across the globe. So it's been you know, he's been the public face of the brand for about thirty years. And I think it would be hard to separate him from Starbucks. And as you write in your piece for the Wall Street Journal, this is also a tricky time for Starbucks, which is trying to drive more traffic to its stores, especially in the United States, and amid a more crowded marketplace when it comes to coffee, you know, the company has been struggling a bit lately in the US from declining customer visits. They've been trying to get people to come back and and come back more often, and they just have started to turn a corner. The last quarter. They just reported traffic was flat to their US stores, which was an improvement from last year. Or the prior fiscal year of there's when traffic was down. So they've been doing a lot of things to try to bring more financial discipline to the company and bring more innovative into the beverages and starting to offer delivery now. So they've started to do some new things that have brought people, you know, kind of stabilize the business and now they're dealing with this. So Julie, what do you think we can expect in the weeks and months ahead as the campaign for the White House in twenty twenty heats up? Well, Howard Schultz has not said that he's officially going to run out. He said he is seriously considering he is just embarking on a national book tour for a new memoir that he has just published. So I think he's trying to test the waters and in the months ahead..

"What happened back in nineteen Ninety-two? It's not the perfect analogy for today. But no story would be Ross Perot was a well known businessman when he decided to run for office in the early nineties. Same is Howard Schultz is now and like today the sitting president, George H W Bush was in trouble the economy was faltering. He was worried about being implicated in the Iran, contra affair, and what you saw in the start of nineteen Ninety-two was Bush's approval rating was plummeting a year earlier he'd lead the country victory in war. The first Gulf war to get Saddam Hussein out of rack in early ninety two February nineteen Ninety-two Bush's approval rating false of thirty nine percent. And it's in that climate that Ross Perot goes on Larry King show. Larry King Live on CNN is any scenario in which you would run for president. Can you give me a scenario which say, okay, I'm in? Number one had a want. King asked him a bunch of times. Hey, you know, people are looking for would you run for president? And finally on you know, third passer so Perot finally just says if you're that series the people are that series. You register me in fifty states. And if you're not willing to organize and do that, then this is all just. Are you saying to the ordinary folks if you're dead serious starting? Sweat Alyce some sweat. Why do I wanna see some sweat? I said it earlier I want you in the rain. It's amazing because you basically don't have an internet in the way, we know it today. You don't have social media in the way, we know it today. And yet, it's this this sort of viral moment that word of that moment, the clip of that moment, you know, spreads spread slower than it would now.

"The twenty twenty presidential field is getting crowded. They're the big names Kamala. Harris Elizabeth Warren Huston gillibrand, then they're the wildcards like the spiritual guru Marianne Williamson. She announced he was running his democrat earlier this week. But part of what's making people so upset about Howard Schultz is that by running as an independent he can skip the whole weeding out process of the primary, and he's got the money to hang around. If all someone knows about Howard Scholtz is that he runs Starbucks. And that's where I get my coffee. Is there more to him that we need to understand? Or do we not know yet? Yeah. I mean, I think you do need a bigger story than that. He look at the the third party candidacies that have you know, that have gotten some traction. I think the the best one the most encouraging modern example for somebody like Howard Schultz who might be thinking about running third party would be Ross Perot in nineteen ninety two. The guy heckling Howard Schultz that in New York City bookstore and all the people ratio him on Twitter there haunted by the ghosts of that nineteen Ninety-two election like Howard Schultz Ross Perot ran is a billionaire and a Washington outsider. He actually got nearly twenty percent of the vote wasn't enough to win. But some say it was enough to change the outcome. So as Steve to put me in the back seat of his time machine.

"schultz" Discussed on Boss Files with Poppy Harlow
"In a bonus episode of boss files from public housing in Brooklyn New York to a potential bid for the White House. Howard Schultz opens up like you never heard him before. For some reason. I cursed my mother at the age of fifteen something I should not have done. My mother shared that was my father, and all I remember was being in the shower at him storming in opening the shower, and then with his fist feeding me to a pulp and. It's interesting because whenever I tell the story I can I can feel my father on me. He details all of it in his new book from the ground up as America waits for the former Starbucks chairman and CEO to give his answer. Will he run for president? He says he's seriously considering an independent bid for twenty twenty. I believe that the current system of broken politics revenge, politics, a lack of compromises self interest self-preservation constant party over country day in and day out is presenting a situation that could be cataclysmic for the country in terms of we are on the collision course with time in terms of our democracy. Our values our billing you to come together the division in the country. The only way I believe that that can change if there's a new level of leadership that changes the system, and I would only do this. If I thought I can win. But what's the pass? He sees for an independent to actually win the White House plus his vision for America, his candidate take on President Trump and the state of our union today. Here's my conversation with Howard Schultz Howard Schultz. Thank you for being here. Poppy, it's my pleasure and way overdue. I think. I'm covered you now for the better part of a decade. And there is so much. I've learned about you from this book from the ground up that I had no idea about and we'll get to that. In a moment. We'll dive deep into that. And we'll dive deep into the politics and a potential presidential bid. But let's talk about the elephant in the room. I before we get into your personal story. Why are you seriously considering a bid for the presidency in twenty twenty not as a democrat? When you have told me countless times that you've been a lifelong democrat. Why now is a centrist independent? Well, I think everyone has been asking me that question and to the outside world, it might seem a little complicated to me. It's pretty simple. If you ask are if you ask the question, what kind of country we wanna live in and then you link that to the degree of toxicity and the self interest and ideology of both parties unwilling to work together on behalf of the American people. And if you ask yourself are we satisfied and do we trust the government today? I think both parties there's not a Quincy but both parties are complicit in their inability to reach a compromise on on most simple issues. Let alone the ones that are most complex, and I've come to the conclusion that the only way in my view to make a significant contribution in the lives of American families who are being left behind is not to embrace the status quo and to give the American people a simple choice in a simple choice, in my view is if we embraced the status quo of a broken system and government not working few. It's going to continue to lead leave to decline. Line or let's give the American people a better choice, and that better choice, by the way is a great expression of democracy, which would leave lead in my view to renewal if you can win and we will get into that in a little bit. Yeah. But before we move onto your story, and and your childhood and what brought you to this point Howard. When did you stopping democrat? I, you know, I think I started. I think the party started losing me when the party started shifting so far left to progressive policies that I know in my heart are as false, and I say this with respect, but it's true. As false says, President Trump telling the American people when he was running for president that the Mexicans. We're gonna pay for the wall. So when was that you're referring to Medicare for all, for example? Right. Well, if you add up the three policies that seemed to be the backbone of the current Democratic Party in terms of the twenty twenty process, it's free Medicare free met free healthcare for everybody free free college degree in job for everybody..

"Oh. You know, just go billionaire asshole. That's really harsh. I mean, not for New York. That's how greet each other here. Yeah. Everywhere else. But he is just like so congrats on your new puppy. Thanks. He's a blessing you're brick. So democratic need is don't want Scholtz entering the race. It doesn't seem like democratic voters on Schultz entering the race. But there was one person who definitely wants him in the make believe billionaire in the White House. The president himself has taunting potential third party challenger tweeting. Howard Schultz doesn't have the guts to run for president watched them on sixty minutes last night. And I agree with them that he is not the smartest person overnight. President Trump told the crowd at a fundraiser the Trump hotel here that he was trying to get Howard Schultz into the race with his earlier tweet because the president thinks it will help him. That's according to the New York Times Trump is so smooth, man. Tries reverse psychology on how it Scholtz. And then tells everyone he's doing reverse psychology. Yeah. I'm gonna tell him he shouldn't run, folks. But it's only trick to get him in the race. It's like psychology. But in reverse, I'm thinking of calling it upside down magic talk. Right back. Tonight. I guess has overseen some of the world's top financial firms, and is considered one of the.
"schultz" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"He's no longer the CEO of Starbucks, but they have no way of hurting him other than possibly because he owns shares in Starbucks. So they are going to boycott Starbucks and try to hurt him ended ish into hurting the millennial baristas who typically vote progressive anyway and would vote democratic set. Now, they're going to be unemployed because of the boycotts, and they may be mad at the Democrats. The whole thing off your spite your face. I realized the propensity to believe that Howard Schultz is going to hurt the Democrats. But if the Democrats cannot win against a president with thirty eight percent job approval, and at least twelve close associates going to jail for their conduct in and around the twenty sixteen election, then maybe the Democratic Party needs to close down. You know, I might as well share with you. These people, you know, I promised I would not name them. Some of them are fairly obvious is to who they are one is a billionaire who is actually trying to recruit been Sast to run, but they all had common critiques about the president first of all to a person. They all say the same thing that the person's actually done a lot policy wise in I'm sorry. I guess I should back up we've moved beyond Howard Schultz to the people who are coming to talk to me about running for president against President Trump, either as Republicans in a primary or is independence, and all these people say, basically, the same thing that policy wise. He's done good. He's executed mature foreign policy. He's just articulated terribly that he's got all sorts of personal preferences that are problematic, but that his administration has been aggressive against Russia has handled China the right way, his aniline around the right ways. Hanley the Middle East in Israel, the right way, he's fought the bureaucracy. He's rollback regulation is tax reforms a good the military. Backout of being a social Justice warrior concept to actually be in warriors for freedom in America. They all like these things. But then they had the critiques that they think the president is risk the economy with tariffs. And I think the right on that they think that he's ruffled the feathers with allies and burn bridges with allies for no reason, he brings out the worst and other. She leads people feel comfortable and bigotry, he doesn't push back. A lot win win bad people who support him are very vocal. So he's being defined by those people, which is a mistake. He's impulsive many of his impulsive moves have to be reined back in the shutdown was an embarrassment that that one is new. But I know they're thinking that just because I keep in touch with some of them and largely they think that he's ruined the GOP's reputation as a caretaker of the economy. He's ruined the idea that we're good stewards of the economy. And that more importantly, they think generate. He's spurring generational shift to the left by his personal behavior that young people do not like him young Christians in particular young evangelical tend not to like the president..
"schultz" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Well, four an exploratory bid. And you're wondering who you know, Howard Scholtz Howard Schultz is the super lefty CEO, former CEO of Starbucks and he went on sixty minutes last night. He said he's thinking about running. He probably is going to run if he runs he's going to run an independent bid for the presidency. He will largely self fund. He's a multibillionaire and the left is apoplectic about it. I do have to say it is a measure of the partisanship in the media is how they're treating the Howard Schultz bid. Normally the media run stories about how great it is. There's more participation more women, they're more. They're more millennials are more people running for. Presents a wonderful democracy and strong. Now this guy comes in and he wants to sell fund in Ron booth. Our boo you're going to get Donald Trump reelected. I mean, the media is tree this complete meltdown by members of the media. Not just not just partisans not just partisan pundits. But some reporters are clearly showing their partisan stripes by how opposed they are to the idea of Howard Schultz running because it's not about more democracy. It's not about participation democracy. It's all about stopping Donald Trump. And that that's aggravating to me. Now, you should know. I did the research today I do expect to be voting for the president in twenty twenty. I mean, he's not my favorite y'all know what I think about him. But the Democrats are clearly moving more and more hard left more more vindictive against people faith, and anyone that doesn't support the progressive agenda. I tried third party in two thousand sixteen it didn't work out. It just makes me more aggravated that that I supported that guy. Som- probably gonna go with the president in twenty twenty. I've had a number of candidates who have come down to Macon and met with me to pick my brain or a minimum at the airport in Atlanta. The got a great conference facility there and just had a great chat with them about running. And I've told them all I think it would support the president. But their critiques of the president. And why they think the running are interesting something the White House needs to consider something. Everybody should consider it a lot of it is about the president. Basically they. I think that the the president's administration serves reelection, but not the president himself that ultimately, but a mind damn Glock Lynn boiled, it down to that from based on what he read I wrote you can read it at the resurgent dot com, but the Howard Schultz bit is interesting because the left immediately presumes it's going to hurt a democrat because Howard Schultz is going to run on fiscal responsibility. He's gotta run on the deficit and otherwise to run a socially progressive. He's for gay marriage. He's four transgenderism he's for gun control. He's for making the Christian bigots bake, the cakes. He's for liberals on the supreme court is for all the stuff the left wants, but Scholtz wants to run saying pox on both your houses. The Democrats are fundamentally broke it in the Republicans are fundamentally broken Schultz has said and is now saying repeatedly the thinks both parties have led America stray he thinks both parties have been bad for business and bad for the Konami alternately and bad for our future. And you know. There is a legit. Critique there the Republicans for the longest time were perceived as the ones who are good for business. Good for the economy and good for spending good on the national debt, and the Republicans are spending as much as the Democrats have wanted to spend. They're not doing anything to control the debt or the deficit. They are they've lowered taxes so purportedly. They're good for business, but the long-term debt burden winds up impacting businesses and bond rates in the like, the president's tariffs with China are impacting the economy. The Chinese economy is slowing down pretty significantly, a worldwide recession is imminent. I can't tell you. Now, the number of of business people and elected officials who have been receiving the private economic briefings from the fed and elsewhere and from private analysts, all of whom are starting use the r word recession, and I think there's something to that. So Scholtz's running essentially as Donald Trump is bad. Bad in his mishandling, the economy and spending. But Democrats are no better on those issues, and the Democrats were livid left wing activist groups are declaring boycotts of Starbucks. No..
"schultz" Discussed on WSJ Opinion: Potomac Watch
"He's with them on immigration. He's with them on climate change. But he's definitely more of a capitalist in that he defends private markets. He criticized Alexander, okay, Zia Cortez recently for her proposal of a seventy percent tax rate on the wealthy. He rejected that so, but these are positions that used to be held within what was called the centrist or moderate wing of the Democratic Party. There isn't a lot of room for them there now. And I think the only way you could buy ably, maybe even compete would be to do an independent run. Right. We're talking about Howard Scholtz as an independent presidential candidate. And you're listening to Potomac watch from the Wall Street Journal. From the opinion pages of the Wall Street Journal. This is Potomac watch. Welcome back on Paul's you go with Bill mcgurn and Kim Strauss talking about Howard Schultz. Starbucks former Starbucks CEO's potential run for president. And Kim you suggested that there's no room within the Democratic Party for a moderate these days, but we will get some in Terry McAuliffe. The former governor of Virginia Clinto Nian he's going to maybe run Mike, Bloomberg might Ron John Hickenlooper, their former Colorado governor, my rumba, I hear you saying is you just don't think they're going to get much traction because of the nature of the party. Now is that is that a fair interpretation? Yeah. Absolutely. I look back to four years ago when Jim Webb who was a Senator a moderate democrat launched his own bid for the presidency. Any he essentially lasted what a few weeks era month before he was run out. They actually booed him. When he walked on stage. And that was for for debate that was four years ago, the party's moved even more left now. So, you know, Michael, Bloomberg he may be making a tactical decision to run as a democrat. But we'll see how open Democrats are to his more at least self-proclaimed moderate style of of democratic politics. Will if you if you if you look at what Howard Schultz is is is running on. He is saying as you say he he's against Medicare for all. He says nation can't afford it. He's going to try to focus on the national debt and deficits and say, we're gonna keep our house in order a Bill of very business thing, my man's kind of view Ross Perot in on that low these many decades ago, the he's he is more pro market. He says ObamaCare shouldn't be repealed. But it can be fixed in justed he wants role for private private health insurance disagrees with Trump most Facific. Early on immigration, and I think on alliances as well. He's mentioned that and kind of an but above all on manners and style and thinks Trump is simply too polarizing, and as as as a leader is that is that enough to coalesce, and they'll be no doubt obvious specific proposals. But as a Nuff to coalesce a big enough coalition to to deny either the other two two hundred seventy votes. I'm not sure, you know, you mentioned the ninety two election, right? I mean, Bill Clinton was essentially the Howard Schultz, then right coming in off the Dukakis off the do Dakotas defeat saying we're gonna have he triangulate had much more moderate. We can argue that whether it was sincere or not. But it was a lot more moderate. He was a governor. So an executive. I mean, it's it's very democrat independent, but right as a gender was closer to Scholtz than to write. Right. And it's and it's interesting that so few of the democratic candidates are actually executive by which I mean governors or something because those are people that actually have some experience in when they're not it tends to push them in the other direction. I think I think he's calculated it'd be very hard and the Democratic Party to get those people that that they're substantive looking in a party that has made identity politics such an important part. It's just hard to see how an old white billionaire gets a nomination. I think he's made a pretty good calculation that way.
