  • 'Twas The Steyn Before Fitzmas... (Mark Steyn & Hugh Hewitt Interview)

    HH: We begin with Columnist To the World, Mark Steyn of Merry Christmas, Mark, I hope your Christmas Eve is well launched already. MS: Yes, it is. Merry Christmas to you, too, Hugh. HH: Let’s begin with the issue of the report. I hate to bring politics into a holiday, but it seems to me that the Obama camp’s release of the report yesterday was designed to assure that no one talked about it, so we’re going to. What do you make about its timing and what it says? MS: Well basically, this is an attempt at self-exoneration. I...
  • Choosing Prosperity and Strength: The Polls Move Towards McCain

    Yesterday's Gallup shocker (a 2 point gap in the "likely voter" model) is going to have a follow up today if Drudge is right: A Rasmussen poll narrowing the gap to 3 points. Now we know why John McCain and Sarah Palin were both in PA yesterday. The election is tightening across the map as those of us who remember 1976 have been predicting all along. Barack Obama represents a much more radical alternative than Jimmy Carter did in '76, and Carter's unusual profile sent voters by the millions towards Gerald Ford in the closing days. The same thing is...

    Farewell, Dean Posted by: Hugh Hewitt My friend and colleague Dean Barnett died today, and the world is a much poorer place for it. As anyone who listened to him on my radio show or read his work at Soxblog, here or at the Weekly Standard knows, and as everyone who had the great, great pleasure of knowing Dean will attest, Dean's combination of sparking intelligence and enormous good humor made him one fo the most memorable of friends. What too few people know, though, is what a kind, extraordinarily giving and compassionate man he was. Dean loved people and...

    Finally, I understand why people say that those who pass away at a young age died “too soon.” Prior to Monday, October 27, I would tell myself that those who died young simply passed away at their particular “time.” Even when someone passed away at an exceedingly young age—like the singer and actress Aaliyah Haughton, who perished in a plane crash in August 2001 at the age of 22—I’d rationalize it by saying that it was their time to go. I cannot do that anymore. At the very least, I cannot do that now. Dean Barnett is no longer with...

    In Tucson this Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (10/05/2008 to 10/07/2008) various events are scheduled to support the Crisis Pregnancy Center in the "2008 Share in a Life Fundraising Event." Sunday night was a great lunch at the Doubletree Inn. Scheduled to speak on both Sunday and Monday was Hugh Hewitt, the famous radio personality, lawyer and author. Michael Medved is the featured speaker for Tuesday, October 7th. Even though Hugh Hewitt's flight was down between Phoenix and Tucson, Hewitt rushed to a ground vehicle and zoomed to Tucson where he was only a little late. Hewitt's speech was great in...

    Hugh Hewitt interviewed Governor Palin on his show today. It seems that the campaign got the "Free Sarah" memo from those on the right who wanted her to stop doing the stilted, edited, gotcha interviews with Gibson, Couric, et al., and let her be herself. She is great in this interview. She calls herself Joe Sixpack. On the blood-shooting-out-of-the-eyes hostility from the left. Oh, I think they’re just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It’s time that normal Joe six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency, and I think...

    NRO's Campaign Spot ^ | 9/30/2008 | Jim Geraghty
    The McCain-Palin campaign finally did something its supporters have been calling for for weeks now — they unleashed Sarah Palin. She did an interview with Hugh Hewitt this evening. (Check; Hugh will replay it twice on his program. I appeared after Palin and was the first to analyze the Palin's answers. Short version - her first couple answers were a bit of the "generic talking point Sarah" we saw from the Gibson and Couric interviews. But she warmed up quickly. She mentioned that she and Todd had lost $20,000 in the past few weeks in their 401(k)s. Can you...

    Here's a shocker: No one likes the risks involved in Paulson 2.0 or the precedent of using so much public money to rescue reckless bankers, both private and semi-private.. But there is a very good chance that (1) it will actually make money for the Treasury and (2) without it the financial crisis will spread and the small businesses of America and the people who own and staff them will be deeply injured. These businesses are the backbone of the economy, and they are in danger. This isn't just a bailout of Wall Street; it is a breakwall for Main...

    Slow Joe at the Pro Hall of Fame, courtesy of Jake Tapper, who is clearly becoming the most-read reporter on the trail: Although Biden said he was a Steelers fan in a meeting with the team's coach Mike Tomlin on August 29, he later said in a September 8 visit to a Green Bay bar outside of Lambeau Field that he'd been a Packers fan since grade school. Today he added three more favorites to the list -- the Eagles, the Colts and the Giants. As he looked at the jersey of former Philadelphia Eagle Reggie White, Horrigan said he...

    Self/LA Times | 20 Aug 2008 | Intheknow Guy
    Old Hugh Hewitt is apparently getting good intel (14 August FR Post "Military Coup in Mexico"). Powerful and influential senior Mexican General, General Segio Aponte Polito, was recently removed from his position as the 2nd Military District Commander (LA Times, 9 Aug). Unlike the US, Generals in Mexico don't get “resigned”..they play major roles in many power broker positions (and yes, until late, behind the scenes). The Mexican Military is fed up with not being able to control the spiraling arms race and increasing sophistication of the cartels. Expect to see Aponte in the future..and before the US election...Wait and...

    The relation between the federal government and the governments of the various states is a chestnut of constitutional theory, a perennial cause of angst and a gauge of American politics generally. In antebellum America, Southern states claimed the right to ignore federal law, presaging the Civil War. In the past century, Progressive arguments for the federal -- rather than the state -- regulation of labor set in motion the centralized administrative juggernaut that became Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal. More recently, the Rehnquist's Court's restrictions on federal authority, in favor of state autonomy, captured the Reagan Revolution's enthusiasm for decentralizing governmental...

    A couple days ago at the gym, listening to a Hugh Hewitt podcast and perhaps not paying as much attention as I should have while pedaling away, I heard Hugh mention that Barack Obama doesn't understand the role of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. What was Hugh referring to? As the British would say: the penny just dropped. A few minutes ago, CNN's Situation Room played a clip of Obama saying this about his plan for Iraq: BARACK OBAMA: I'm going to call in the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and give them a new mission, and that is to bring...

    Politico ^ | July 6, 2008 | David Mark & Kenneth P. Vogel
    Barack Obama has proven a difficult target to hit—just ask Hillary Clinton. Opposition researchers, though, hope that they’ve found a weapon to wound Obama in his own voice as recorded for the Grammy Award-winning audio version of his 1995 memoir, “Dreams from My Father.” While candidates often have their own words turned against them in attack ads, it’s one thing to see past statements in bloc text and something else entirely to hear the same words in the office-seeker’s own voice.
