Now What!?

Wednesday, July 1, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

The mess in Greece looks only to get messier.  Puerto Rico is BK.  Mummers of a terrorist attack this holiday weekend.  A beheading in France, just the scariest of several hideous terrorist attacks.  That’s the hard geopolitical stuff.  On the softer cultural side things that just a decade or two ago seemed unthinkable are now a part of our general cultural.  Pot is legal in a lot of places and getting more so.  Same-sex marriage is now the law of the land.  That’s just the spectacular stuff.  I could go on and on and on.  I think most of us have gotten a “flinch” reaction – that is to say when ever anybody approaches, we flinch in anticipation of more bad news.

Joseph Epstein had an interesting piece in the WSJ this morning about the political appeal of “going forward.”  He discusses it as a means of political evasion:

Going forward is a useful phrase to cap an evasive political answer and close off further discussion of a tricky or touchy point. Implicit in the phrase is the notion of progress, futurity, help on its way. As such, it is perfect for the vocabulary of politicians, for electoral politics is built on promises. Something there is in human beings that imbues them with hope for happy days ahead, and skilful politicians, with the aid of this new mantra of evasion, play nicely to this. Recall Barack Obama’s promise of “Hope and Change,” a splendid double-barrel bit of going forward.

I think that is fair, but when the situation is as it now is, we still do have to move forward in some fashion.  It is pointless to sit here in fear or malaise, here is clearly not a good place. Continue Reading

Carly Fiorina On The Extension Of The Nuke Talks With Iran, And The Senate Filibuster v. Obamacare Repeal Debate

Carly Fiorina joined me in hour two of today’s program:

Transcript:

HH: I am so pleased to welcome back now, who has become a regular weekly guest and I am glad about it, Carly Fiorina, the voice of the new voter. Carly Fiorina, of course, welcome, it’s always good to talk to you, Carly.

CF: Well, great to be back with you, Hugh. How are you doing?

HH: I’m great. I want to tell everyone who was misinformed when I gave a speech at the Western Conservative Summit and omitted Carly, and then had to come back up, that was all planned so that I would just draw additional attention to her. And then I saw her, she was very gracious. Thank you for your forgiveness, but that list gets so long, but you had quite the breakout weekend in Denver. Is that happening wherever you go?

CF: Well, we’re very encouraged. I have to say I’m very encouraged, but Hugh, you know, I’m not going to let you get away that easy. I mean, in your book, months ago, you said Hillary Clinton should just ignore me. You owe me, man, you just owe me. That’s just the way it is.

HH: Every week that Carly Fiorina wants to come on. Okay, now let me get to the issue of the week. I have asked Ted Cruz yesterday, Rick Perry today, Jeb Bush last week, Scott Walker on the stage in Colorado. If it came down to using the Reid Rule to break the Senate filibuster tradition in order to repeal Obamacare root and branch, would Carly Fiorina urge Mitch McConnell to break the filibuster rule in order to get rid of Obamacare?

CF: I would. And in this case, while I would be very reluctant to do so, the truth is that’s how this thing was passed in the first place. So you know, it was passed on reconciliation. That, too, went around normal Senate rules. And Obamacare is a tangled web that is becoming worse, clearly, day by day. This isn’t an ideological thing, although obviously from an ideological perspective, having government this entwined in society is terrible. But it’s obviously failing all Americans, whether they were for it or not – emergency room visit up over 50%, insurance premiums up 35% that we know of, people being thrown into Medicaid where Medicaid is underfunded and doctors are leaving Medicaid in droves. This plan is failing the American people whether they were for it originally or not. Continue Reading

Transcript:

HH: I’m pleased to welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show now Governor Rick Perry of Texas, four-term governor now running for president. Governor Perry, it’s always a pleasure, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show.

RP: Hugh, thank you. We were out in your part of the world last week. So other than being out of water, the state’s still as beautiful as ever.

HH: Yeah, now, in your old job, you used to always leave here with a couple of businesses and a few thousand jobs. Did you just leave them alone this time?

RP: Well, pretty much. I tell you, this whole water situation out there is one of grave concern. You know, whether you’re on the outside looking in or traveling through the state realizing that is going to be the limiting factor for California if they don’t get that addressed. And you know, a lot of this is a manmade drought. There’s a lot of technologies out there and a lot of ways to address this, so hopefully, you’ll get some big rains and use some common sense to deal with this going forward. Continue Reading
