Mitt Romney on Scott Brown’s Race for the Senate

Friday, January 8, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney joined me on yesterday’s show to discuss how Republicans have won in the Bay State in the past. The transcript is here. Romney has been working hard for Brown, as every GOP leader ought to be. (We also discuss the vast differences between Obamacare and Mass Care –the state program Romney oversaw while governor.)

Of course getting and staying close enough to make a Massachusetts Miracle possible requires cash for at least bare-bones advertising. You can help with an online donation via Scott Brown’s website here.

Brown’s new web ad is below. The election is January 19, so start reminding your MA friends right now that they have it in their power to stop Obamacare.

The CIA’s Fallen

Friday, January 8, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Details on the CIA personnel who were assassinated in Afghanistan by al Qaeda are provided in this Times of London story by Giles Whittell and Jerome Starkey. What extraordinary Americans, who deserve as much honor as is rightly given to our fallen soldiers, sailors, aimen and Marines. If there is a fund to benefit the families of these heroes, please let me know via so I can help publicize it.

Reuel Marc Gerecht’s piece on the significance of the attack on the very tip of America’s spear from yesterday’s Wall Street Journal is here.

Please, A Little Less President Obama

Friday, January 8, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

After doing nothing when it mattered, we are now getting daily Obamacasts from the White House, none of which add to our knowledge of what went wrong, or to our confidence that Janet Incompetano is any better at her job than on the day she announced “The system worked!”

From my conversation with columnist-to-the-world Mark Steyn on yesterday’s show (the complete transcript is here):

HH: I want to read to you the first paragraph of a story from the Times of London today. “Nigerian opposition politicians are demanding visual proof that the country’s president is still alive and fit to govern, six weeks after he left the country for medical treatment.” My question, Mark, are Nigerians better off than Americans where we do not get six minutes without seeing our president on TV?

MS: (laughing) Yeah, I would love to have six weeks without Barack Obama. In fact, you know, people complain that he had nothing to say about the Christmas Day pantybomber until whatever it was, the 27th or the 28th or the 29th. I mean, that three days, I think, was the longest he’s been off TV since he took office. So I’m up for the Nigerian option, six months without seeing the head of state.

David Axelrod still hasn’t figured out that overexposure of the president reduces his popularity, and turns him into a scold or worse, an ineffective Chris Matthews.

Less face time for the president is more leadership pull, but don’t expect a PR guy to believe that.

A Letter To Massachusetts Voters

Thursday, January 7, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

My column is a letter to Massachusetts voters about their special Senate race. If you know any, e-mail it to them.

And here’s the link to Scott Brown’s campaign. As Brown said on yesterday’s show, every $50 helps –a lot.
