Carly Fiorina Remembers Steve Jobs And Talks About Technophobic Washington, D.C.

Friday, October 9, 2015  |  posted by Duane Patterson

The audio:


The transcript:

HH: One name on many people’s lips is that of Carly Fiorina, clearly the most surprising story of 2016, skyrocketing into if not frontrunner, then near-frontrunner status, and making me look bad every single day that she does because of the book that I wrote, The Queen, in which I said that really can’t be done. Carly Fiorina, welcome back, I always appreciate that you’ve forgiven me my many sins.

CF: (laughing) Hello, Hugh, how are you doing?

HH: I’m great.

CF: You don’t need any forgiveness. We all make mistakes.

HH: We all make mistakes. It’s sort of like someone writing off Thatcher in 1974. Oh, she’ll never get out of that job. I feel like, really, by the way, are you a student of Thatcher?

CF: Am I a what?

HH: A student of Margaret Thatcher?

CF: Well, she certainly is someone that I have admired greatly. I have read her autobiography, and if I had time, I would read the latest book on her. But certainly, she’s someone I admire greatly, and always have.

HH: So when I go on cable and I say Carly Fiorina is going full Thatcher, you don’t mind that?

CF: No, I don’t mind that, although, you know, I’m also not Margaret Thatcher. I’m Carly Fiorina, so I’m flattered by the comparison, but I’m also not trying to be someone else. I’m trying to be myself. Continue Reading

Senator Ted Cruz On Speaker Contest, Dealing With POTUS

Thursday, October 8, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Senator Ted Cruz joined me on the show today:

Audio: 10-08hhs-cruz


HH: Joined now by United States Senator Ted Cruz. Senator Cruz, welcome, it’s good to speak with you.

TC: Hugh, thank you for having me. It’s always a pleasure to be with you.

HH: Quite an amazing day in Washington, D.C.

TC: Yes.

HH: You have an extraordinary amount of influence on the House of Representatives. What do you think they ought to do?

TC: Well, it has been an extraordinary day. Kevin McCarthy’s dropping out, I think, surprised everybody. And you know, what I think they should do is what I have both publicly and privately urged members of the House to do from the very beginning, which is that they should select as Speaker a strong conservative who will actually honor the promises that we made to the men and women who elected us. There is right now this incredible divide between Washington and the American people, between career politicians in Washington who routinely ignore the promises we made to the American people. And Republican leadership has been doing that over and over again. We need a change.

HH: Senator Cruz, two names have emerged from an afternoon of phoning around. One of them is your colleague from Texas, Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. The other is Pete Roskam, sub-committee chairman on Ways and Means. Both are able men. Would you rather either of them over an interim or a long period of uncertainty, because it seems to me the House would be crippled that way?

TC: You know, Hugh, I have long said that I’m going to stay out of House leadership fights, and that’s a decision for the House Republican Conference, so I’m not going to endorse any particular individual. But I will describe the characteristics that I think are important for the next Speaker to have. And the most important characteristic is a fidelity to the promises that were made to give us the majority. Continue Reading
