Welcoming Beldar and Encoring Chaput

Friday, September 12, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Note below that Bill Dyer, aka “Beldar,” has agreed to post here at HughHewitt.com. Bill represents the very best of the blogosphere, an accomplished professional –a very successful trial lawyer– who puts time, thought and his research and writing skills to work in his posts. I very much appreciate his willingness to throw in during this crucial time in American political life. Bill’s sitting pretty close to the path of Ike right now, so his first few posts will be particularly interesting, if he maintains power.

In hours two and three of today’s program, I will be replaying my interview from a few weeks ago with Denver’s Archbishop Charles Chaput. I do so because the importance of the life issue to this campaign and the Roman Catholic vote specifically has become very clear in the weeks since Nancy Pelosi convened her Vatican III on Meet the Press, to which Joe Biden subsequently contributed his own verbal encyclical. Don’t miss the conversation, and be sure to order the archbishop’s new best-seller, Render Unto Caesar, if you are interested in a genuinely Christian approach to politics.

Two Questions

Friday, September 12, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

1. When was the last time Obama “won a week?” Even the gathering at the Barackopolis turned to mud with the Palin announcement. Must have been his big week –in Germany. But that’s when he skipped meeting with the wounded troops. He did win the nomination one week –after losing a host of primaries and dragging his campaign across the finish line.

The last really huge, unambiguously great week for Obama? You tell me.

2. After Obumble’s latest pratfall this week, he declared “Enough!” which translated means “I can’t handle this anymore!”

When, in the past eight years, has President Bush ever said to his critics, “Enough?”

Presidents don’t tell their critics to shut up. Candidates who want to be president shouldn’t either. If you want to run the Republic, you have to take the heat that goes with the kitchen.

Speaking of heat, in my interview with McCain-Palin campaign manager Rick Davis from Wednesday, he noted that the MSM has lots more questions to ask Obama, especially about William Ayers:

HH: Rick Davis, I want to talk about some of the questions that remain unanswered about Barack Obama, and begin with the Bill Ayers association, which was the subject of a brief exchange, not particularly clarifying last night on the O’Reilly Factor. Do you believe there are additional question that Barack Obama ought to be asked, and which he ought to answer about his longtime association with his colleague and unrepentant terrorist, Bill Ayers?

RD: You know, look. It’s a disturbing relationship. As a campaign, we’ve chosen not to make this relationship a big case in the campaign. We understand that a lot of people are going to ask questions about it. Look, it’s legitimate ground to ask about, and I think that the folks like you and others can vet this out in a very effective way. And look, I think the people who you surround yourself with, the people who you talk to every day, the people who advise you on your career choices, are relevant to the American public. You know, we’re happy to talk about the people who have surrounded John McCain for most of his career, you know his friends from POW camp, Orson Swindle, people like that, Bud Day, probably his closest friend in the world to this day, is the most decorated war veteran alive today in America. I mean, these are people who have been close and confidants to John McCain for really his entire adult career. And I’ll compare those relationships to anybody’s.
