Rep. Mike Pompeo On The Washington Post’s “Fact Checking”

Thursday, April 23, 2015  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Representative Mike Pompeo, West Point and Harvard Law graduate, joined me today to fact check the “fact checker” at the Washington Post, Michelle Ye Hee Lee:

Transcript:

HH: Joined now by Congressman Mike Pompeo from Kansas’ 4th Congressional District. There was something playing in my ear there, but it wasn’t Mike Pompeo. Hello, Congressman, how are you?

MP: It’s good to be with you, Hugh. How are you today?

HH: Great. I have got to talk to you specifically, in hour number three, I’m going to have on a Washington Post reporter, Michelle Ye Hee Lee, who wrote a piece today, The Zombie Claim About Navy Ship Numbers Returns To The 2016 Campaign Trail, in which she blasts Lindsey Graham and Scott Walker for talking about how our Navy has declined in size and capability. Now you’re a West Point grad, but you know this stuff. Do you think it deserves three Pinocchios, that Lindsey Graham and Scott Walker and every other Republican is out there talking about Reagan had 600 ships, and we’re down to 273?

MP: Well, them’s the facts. So I don’t know how you get three Pinocchios when there’s a fact. What they really mean is they try and say well, we don’t need that many anymore. I can assure you, we are beginning to see this need, right? The Chinese are building an island in the South China Sea. We’ve got Iranian ships sailing through the Gulf of Aden, and we’ve got enormous problems where the Russians are beginning to move their fleet into places they’ve not moved it before. I can assure you, our naval power is going to be called on in the next month and years in a way that the three Pinocchios that that comment was given, doesn’t do justice to. Continue Reading

Transcript:

HH: Pleased to welcome back the former governor Texas, Rick Perry, to the Hugh Hewitt Show. Governor, great to have you back.

RP: Hugh, it’s awesome to hear your voice and be on your program again. How are things in your part of the world?

HH: Terrific. I was in the audience at the Heritage Foundation a week ago Friday night when you were the main speaker, but I was a couple of chairs back…

RP: Get out of here. Why didn’t you come say hey? I did not spy you out there. That was not a small crowd, though.

HH: I was just enjoying you working the room and doing a great speech, and you were fired up that night. Are you feeling the energy here?

RP: Well, I’ll tell you what, you know, I learned some great lessons about 2011 and 2012, the least of which is those that if you’re going to participate in that process, you better be healthy, and you better be prepared. And frankly, I wasn’t either one of those. So over the last three years, one, I’ve gotten really healthy, and secondly, just the preparation side of it, whether it is going out to the Hoover and learning at the feet of some of the great and extraordinary leaders that you have out at the Hoover Institution, including George Schultz, across the board to people like Eric Edelman or Cohen and Henry Kissinger. I mean, I’ve had a most enjoyable period of time really learning foreign policy and getting down in the weeds in it where we can really discuss it at length. And the other side of that is to be healthy. And I am healthy, and I think you saw that reflected the other night. Continue Reading
