Romney Rumblings

Friday, September 4, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

As Trump stumbles on substance but continues to perform in the polls, it is natural that people would become concerned.  And since none of the current field seems capable of making a dent, it is also natural that people might start to look outside the field.  And thus on Tuesday began the Romney rumors.  And the rumors spread and they were debated and debated.  But most importantly they were denied by Romney long and old timers.

But rumors do not spring from nothing – somebody floated them either to pressure Romney to reconsider or with Romney’s blessing to test the waters.  If Romney were not open, he’d personally deny the rumors – so something is up here, the question is what. Continue Reading

Carly Fiorina On Gotcha Questions And The Rise Of Islamist Terrorism

Thursday, September 3, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

After being chided by Donald Trump for asking “gotcha questions” –and I deplore “gotcha questions”– I asked Carly Fiorina to join me and, of course without revealing the questions to her, walked through the same question set for her as I did for Donald Trump:




HH: It’s Hugh Hewitt. Earlier today I pre-recorded an interview with Donald Trump in which Donald Trump chided me for asking when he called “gotcha questions,” and I take very seriously that because I hate “gotcha questions.” They don’t advance the public conversation at all, so I thought I would run a controlled group experiment on whether or not they were “gotcha questions” by asking if Carly Fiorina would join me and I’d run through the same question set without her knowing what they her. Carly, welcome. It’s great to have you on. I appreciate you doing this with me.

CF: Thank you, Hugh. Always good to be with you.

HH: Now, again, you have no idea what I asked Donald. There’s been social media on it, so let me just begin where I began with him.

CF: Just for the record, Hugh, I never know what you’re going to ask me.

HH: (laughs) That’s true. I just don’t do that with people. But aren’t you familiar with General Soleimani? Continue Reading

Donald Trump On The Day He Took The Pledge

Donald Trump joined me today:




HH: Joined now by Donald Trump. Donald Trump, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show, it’s always a pleasure to talk to you.

DT: Thank you, Hugh.

HH: I would thought that today, this is our sixth interview, I’d turn to some of the commander-in-chief questions. Are you ready for that?

DT: Okay, fine.

HH: Are you familiar with General Soleimani?

DT: Yes, but go ahead, give me a little, go ahead, tell me.

HH: He runs the Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, okay, right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior…

DT: The Kurds, by the way, have been horribly mistreated by …

HH: No, not the Kurds, the Quds Forces, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Quds Forces.

DT: Yes, yes.

HH: …is the bad guys.

DT: Right.

HH: Do you expect his behavior to change as a result…

DT: Oh, I thought you said Kurds, Kurds.

HH: No, Quds.

DT: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought you said Kurds, because I think the Kurds have been poorly treated by us, Hugh. Go ahead. Continue Reading
