Meet The Press’ Chuck Todd On The Iran “Deal”

Friday, April 3, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

NBC Meet The Press host Chuck Todd joined me on today’s show:

Audio:

04-03hhs-todd

Transcript:

HH: It’s Friday. That means Chuck Todd, the host of Sunday’s Meet The Press, it’s going to be a great one on Sunday. He’s going to talk to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred. Chuck, Happy Passover to you, great to have you on.

CT: Thank you, sir, Happy Easter to you, my friend.

HH: And do you. Now you get the Commish on. I don’t know if you’ve already taped that or not, but obviously, the key issue in the game is whether or not to make Progressive Field in Cleveland the permanent home of the All-Star game.

CT: (laughing) I did already do the interview. There was one piece of news that he refused to make, but apparently there’s a big announcement coming, he promises, on Monday in Washington, and he’s attending the Nationals game. I kind of think it smells like…if it walks like an All-Star game, it quacks like an All-Star game announcement, I think it is an All-Star game announcement. So we’ll see on that.

HH: For the Nationals? For the Nationals picking it up?

CT: For Washington. Hey, man, Washington hasn’t had one since the 60’s so, you know… Continue Reading

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough On 2016, The Iran “Deal” And Hillary’s Glass Jaw

Friday, April 3, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Morning Joe joined me on today’s show:

Audio:

04-03hhs-scarborough

Transcript:

HH: Joined now by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough. Happy Easter weekend to you, Joe, I hope you get the weekend off.

JS: Happy Good Friday, and Happy Easter weekend to you, Hugh.

HH: How I want to begin by asking, you know, I’ve been named one of the questioners at the presidential debate at the Reagan Library. Is Joe Scarborough going to be on the stand up there? Am I going to be asking you questions?

JS: I don’t think so. I mean, unless I’m just an intrepid MSNBC reporter who is whispering questions about entitlement reform or something like that, Hugh. Probably not.

HH: So you’ve ruled out running?

JS: Yes, I think so.

HH: All right, just checking. Last time I talked to you, you were still flirting and do the fan dance with us. But that’s over?

JS: Yeah, I think it is. I mean, you know, things always change, but now I think I’m pretty much content to keep my head down and do my work through the 2016 election, and then we’ll see what happens after that. You know, I’ve already said at some point, I want to get back into service, public service, and hopefully I can do it while a Republican’s at the White House. Continue Reading

Rick Santorum On Mike Pence, The Iran Deal, The New York Bomb Plot and Al Shabab Attack in Kenya

Thursday, April 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Former United States Senator Rick Santorum joined me today to discuss all of the headlines in a wolrd on fire:

Audio:

04-02hhs-santorum

Transcript:

HH: I begin this hour with my friend, Rick Santorum, former United States senator from the great state of Pennsylvania. Senator, I’d compliment you on Penn State having someone in the Final Four, but that would be Wisconsin and Michigan State, and Ohio State won, you know, why is that Penn State is the weak sister of the Big Ten?

RS: You know, it’s been a pathetic basketball program for a long time. I wish we could solve that riddle. I don’t know why. We’ve gone through a bunch of coaches, and we’ve got a first-rate facility, but have never been able to attract the talent there. It’s very frustrating as an alum, I’ve got to tell you.

HH: Now I’ve got to tell you something as well. I was recently profiled by the National Journal, and nice, young reporter, Shane Goldmacher, and he said well, whose politics are most like yours, and I said you’re not going to believe this, but if it weren’t for Rick Santorum’s sports, I’m like a carbon copy of his politics. And his jaw dropped. But I actually think, I also finished writing a piece recently that whatever you have to say in the primaries is going to be watched by Hillary very closely as a critique of the modern Republican Party. Do you think I’m on to something there?

RS: Well, I mean, obviously I’m out with a very different message than other Republicans, and it’s a message that is an important one for the country. But it’s important for the Republican Party to recognize that if we’re going to be successful going forward in a national election, that we have to be able to reach voters that don’t think that we really talk about them much or care about them very much. And those are voters right now who are disillusioned with the Democrats, too. They’re disillusioned with both parties. So I think you’re right. I think Hillary Clinton probably wait and see whether the Republican Party gets it right and nominates somebody who has a message that is a little bit broader than what we’ve been dealing with, particularly on the economy.

Senator Rand Paul Campaign Manager Doug Stafford

Thursday, April 2, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Doug Stafford is running Senator Rand Paul’s PAC and joined me on today’s show:

Audio:

04-02hhs-stafford

Transcript:

HH: I’m joined now, though, by Doug Stafford. He’s the executive director of RandPAC, as in RandPAC. You might have guessed, that is Senator Rand Paul’s political action committee. Doug, welcome to the program, great to have you on.
DS: Thanks. Great to be with you, Hugh.

HH: Am I right, your Twitter handle is @dougstafford?

DS: That sounds right.

HH: All right, I want people to be able to find you. Doug, first, what’s RandPAC up to? What does it exist to do?

DS: It exists to promote the causes and the political phase that Senator Rand Paul goes around the country, it helps to help other candidates around the country who believe similar things. He was very active, as you probably remember, the most active senator, the most in demand person campaigning for Senate candidates, helping them retake the majority last fall, and it’s been great working with him on that project.
