Carly Fiorina On Misstatements Of Fact

Wednesday, May 6, 2015  |  posted by Duane Patterson

The declared candidate for president weighed in on the latest Clinton Foundation scandals, the Iran deal, and what the GOP nominee is going to need to do to beat the former Secretary of State.

The Audio:


The Transcript:

HH: Welcome now Carly Fiorina, declared candidate for the president of the United States. Welcome back, Carly, it is great to have you on the Hugh Hewitt Show.

CF: Well, thanks for having me back, Hugh. How are you doing?

HH: It is, I’m terrific. Congratulations. You had quite a launch yesterday, and I have to tell you Zeke Miller of Time Magazine was in the studio here in Washington, D.C. with me, said you did a 45 minute press phone call where you took any and all comers. That’s 45 minutes more than Mrs. Clinton. You’re going to keep building on that lead, do you think?

CF: Well, look, I intend to answer all questions from all comers. So it seemed to me to be completely fair to be accessible to the press on the day that we launched, although you’re right, it’s unprecedented, and it’s certainly very different than Mrs. Clinton. And then later in the day, we used a great technology called Periscope to connect up with anyone who wanted to connect with us from all across the country. We had a couple of people on from around the world to ask any question they wanted to ask, because I think people have serious questions on their minds, and I think they deserve serious answers.

Beyond Winning, Who Can Lead?

Tuesday, May 5, 2015  |  posted by Garrett Fahy

by Brian Fahy & Garrett Fahy

As the ever growing field of GOP presidential candidates storms the country seeking supporters and funds, each contestant has pledged to undo what President Obama has done and has sought to discredit Hillary Clinton’s record and her positions. All well and good; how the GOP candidates would handle the misbegotten policies of their progressive opponents is certainly an important question. Continue Reading

“Baltimore Riots, Low Growth Economy: The Wages of Folly” By Clark S. Judge

Tuesday, May 5, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The weekly column from Clark Judge:

Baltimore Riots, Low Growth Economy: The Wages of Folly
By Clark S. Judge: managing director, White House Writers Group, Inc. chairman, Pacific Research Institute

You don’t often see the wages of folly come due all at once. But in less that 48 hours last week, the nation was presented with two bills for the last six-and-a-half years.

On Monday night, rioting broke out in Baltimore. We all know the immediate cause, the funeral of a young man who died while in police custody and the utter inability of the government of Baltimore to deal with the unrest. But as many have suggested, the outbreaks occurred in areas of the city where unemployment is as high as 50 percent and (thanks to a pervasive welfare state and the culture it has fostered) the normal nuclear family’s presence may be approaching zero.

The Export Import Bank Debate

Tuesday, May 5, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The debate over whether or not the GOP-controlled Congress should reform and reauthorize the 80 year old Export-Import will absorb a lot of D.C.’s attention in the next two months.  I am a strong proponent of re-authroization for reasons described in detail here.

On Monday’s show I hosted former ExIm Board Member (and my law firm colleague) Dan Renberg and columnist and AEI scholar (and my former editor at Regnery and colleague at The Washington Examiner) Tim Carney to knock the issue around for an hour.  It doesn’t get much more fair and balanced than that:




HH: We now turn to the grit and the down and dirty of American Beltway politics, the Export-Import Bank. And you just said to yourself what? And I here to tell you that this is the most divisive issue among the Republican caucus in the Washington, D.C. area. I learned that all last week. So I brought two experts back. Dan Renberg was on with me last week. You know Dan. He was a member of the Export-Import Bank board of directors from 1999-2003. Do I have that right, Dan?

DR: You do. Thank you, Hugh.

HH: He is one of my colleagues, a partner of mine at Arent Fox. And in studio with, and he supports the bank, and in studio with me opposing the bank, Tim Carney, who I must admit was my editor on the Mitt Romney book I did in 2007. He is my colleague at the Washington Examiner where he is the senior editorial columnist. And he is a visiting fellow with our friend, Arthur Brooks, who is a member of the editorial board. So I have more conflicts of interest in this studio than I’ve ever had at one time. And I’ve got to be abundantly fair, even though I support the Ex-Im. Tim Carney, good to have you on.

TC: Thanks for having me, Hugh.

HH: Okay, because you’re outnumbered by two Ex-Im Bank supporters, I’m going to let you go first. And but that requires that you set up for the benefit of the Steelers fans what the Export-Import Bank is…

TC: Yeah.

HH: And then tell us why you hate it. Continue Reading
