The Transcript:

HH: I’m joined now by Chuck Todd of Meet The Press, and I always give Chuck a hard time about how he’s going to cover everything that happened in a week. Chuck Todd, I don’t know that you’ve ever had a week like this to cover before. What in the world are you going to do on Sunday morning?

CT: No, I was just telling Duane, I mean, I think the thing that feels as if it’s like the hardest story where we’re going to cover is all the terror threats that took place overseas. I mean, look, I think this is a consequential week in the trajectory of sort of where America is headed, particularly on the social front. And I think that you know, that’s where our focus is going to be. Continue Reading

President Trash Talk

Saturday, June 27, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

The president’s propensity to trash talk has been known since he first took office.  But it was taken to a whole new level last night with the rainbow lighting of the White House.  He is supposed to be leading a nation that is clearly divided on the issue, but he has chosen to lead only part of it and tell the rest of us “tough darts.”  The office of POTUS grows smaller by the hour with this man in it.

Yesterday, in the eulogy he delivered for Rev. Pinckney he praised Pickney by saying he “embodied a politics that was neither mean nor small.”  And then he pulls a stunt like this.  In that same eulogy Obama evoked the Bible.

OK – Ephesians 4:29 – “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”  We should endeavor to do that even if he clearly does not.

Transcript:

HH: I’m pleased to begin the show with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Governor Bush, welcome back to the program, great to have you.

JB: Thank you, Hugh, sorry I can’t be with you out there.

HH: Well, let’s begin with the two big decisions – King V. Burwell yesterday on Obamacare, and the marriage decision today, Governor Bush. What’s your reaction to both those decisions and the role of the Court in America today?

JB: Well, I’m disappointed in both decisions. And it’s important, I think, to think about going forward what kind of judges we need particularly on the highest court in the land. And I’ve given that some thought, because I was governor of Florida. And when I was governor, we tried to find people with a proven record of judicial restraint, and people that were committed to enforcing the Constitutional limits on government authority. In essence, what I’m saying is I think we need to have people that have not just theoretically, but have had a proven record of not legislating from the bench. And these are talented, smart people, but these two decisions are really disappointing. Continue Reading

A Very Silly Season

Friday, June 26, 2015  |  posted by John Schroeder

Today’s Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage  is a huge problem, but not in the way you may be thinking.  While I have serious disagreement with the ruling on constitutional (and I seem to be in pretty good company on that), structure of society, and religious/moral grounds – it is not same sex marriage that I am really worried about at the moment.  Rather, the decision comes on a morning when there was a terrorist attack in France that involving a beheading.  This was not a captive beheaded in the wilds of Syria broadcast to the world via YouTube.  This was in France – western Europe – the heart of civilization.

Yet the moment the Supreme Court ruling was released my news feed changed like someone had flicked a switch.  Mention of the French attack, only moderately covered to begin with, disappeared from my feed.  Now, I don’t watch TV news much, so I do not know what happened, but I am willing to bet it was close to the same thing.  The local news I was watching as my wife and I dressed this morning broke away from coverage of the attack when the ruling was announced, but that is as far as I got

Regardless of how one feels about same sex marriage, I think we can agree that something is very wrong when that ruling pushes news of a beheading – A BEHEADING – out of the way.  My beef all week with the Charleston coverage is based in a similar issue. Continue Reading
