One Too Many In The Lists

Wednesday, May 6, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

A broad and well fought Republican presidential primary is a good thing.  It is way too early to pick a candidate.  The idea of a situation like this is to  let the discussion and debate happen.  The more we know the better we vote.  Mike Huckabee is one of the few, if not the only candidate, whose entrance into the race does not bode well for the race itself.  I do not know who I will vote for come the primary, but I can assure you it will not be Mike Huckabee.

Hugh spent a good bit of the show yesterday trying to get people to admit that if it is Hillary v Huckabee they will vote for Huckabee, and so for the record, yes I will vote for Huckabee in the general – if he gets there.  But I do not think he has much of a chance to get there, and while it is still primary season, my opposition to his candidacy will remain very strong.

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.
