The Classicist Podcast, with Victor Davis Hanson: “2016 and the Race for the White House”

 

In the newest installment of The Classicist podcast, VDH takes us on a tour of the 2016 presidential race: How should we interpret Scott Walker’s departure? How plausible is a presidential candidate without electoral experience? What’s Victor’s cryptic message for Mike Huckabee? And why does Hillary Clinton have the Sage of the Central Valley quoting Nine Inch Nails lyrics? All that, plus perhaps the first in-depth analysis of the Jim Webb campaign that you’ve heard this cycle, can be heard below or when you subscribe to The Classicist via iTunes.

    Gee, if only VDH didn’t pull his punches and just told us what he really thinks about Obama…

    Always sobering to hear his thoughts.

    Victor Davis Hanson quoting Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails? Who authorized anonymous to play around with wormholes?

    If you connect his first comment to his last, you can see how exceptional problems that focus on fundamental values rather than legislative strategies are why so many leading presidential candidates are not career politicians.

    As for the Democrats lacking “intellectual heft” in their hypocritical objections to Republican repetition of President Obama’s executive steamrolling, when has blatant hypocrisy ever been a problem for Democrats?

    Ummm….I’m gonna go with “never.” In a gadrillion years – “never.”

    VDH made his own Freudian slip by referring to Hillary’s “career as Bill’s husband.” More truth than poetry there, VDH.

    A “profound period of embarrassment…” he’s already writing the history book.

    Great edition. Once the Obama media blanket is pulled back there will be a lot of Democrats claiming stockholm syndrome.

    I am looking forward to the time when the president’s skin color won’t be a factor in what the media reports.

    Yes, I thought that, too. “As if!!”

    I enjoy VDH’s delivery (in addition to his thoughts) very much. He can fire the most blistering criticism in the softest tone you ever heard. That’s a skill, or a gift.
