RTAG 2 TT On Wednesday, I was honored to speak at the Winter Meeting of the Republican National Committee about the how important and impactful the 2018 elections could be for America. Below is an excerpt of my statements . i>
RTAG 3 TTLet me thank all of you, particularly those I was just chatting with, for your magnanimity. I have been active in the Republican Party a fairly long time, longer than the younger people here have been alive. And I want to talk to you from the heart. When Ronna and I talked about coming by, I think it was precisely because I had enough distance to look at these things and to be involved on a number of occasions.
RTAG 4 TTFirst of all, I reckoned last night’s State of the Union rivaled anything that Ronald Reagan did. It was just astonishingly effective. President Trump find specific individuals whose stories weren’t merely important as wonderful human tales, but they each illustrated a part of the American tapestry in the American culture in such a way that reminded all of us America is such a wonderful country. I thought it was a very powerful and very effective speech.
RTAG 5 TTI likewise have to comment on Ronna and financing of the report at the end of the year. She hit the ground running with a very simple framework that said, “I’m going to work with the president. I’m going to help the president. How big of a check are you going to write? ” And she must have reiterate that a hundred thousand times over the past time, and she has been very, very effective.
RTAG 6 TTNow, I came tonight in part because I imagine the Republican National Committee truly matters. I’ll tell you candidly, I believe without Reince Priebus and without the Republican National Committee, we would not have won in 2016 because we needed all of the extra endeavor, and we candidly required Reince urgently comprising the party together all through the springtime when about a third of the party was certainly eager to commit suicide. And without that various kinds of attempt and without the ground game of the autumn, we would have lost. It’s simply that simple.
RTAG 7 TTSimilarly, I belief the Republican National Committee under Ronna’s leadership is going to be decisive this year. So, I’m going to talk just got a couple of minutes about where we’re at because I think it’s really important. And I know those of you who are on the committee are going to take it seriously and take it as a personal responsibility, and those of you who are friends of the committee are even going to take it seriously.
RTAG 8 TTI’m going to start with a very simple model. How many of you noticed[ during the State of the Union] that Nancy Pelosi wasn’t happy? Now, I have a ground rule, after the president won, I said to every conservative I would talk to, every time “were starting to” get mad at Donald J. Trump, I crave you to close your eyes and think: President Hillary Clinton. Well, I would say to every one of you, every day this year that you do not work for a Republican majority, I want you to think about Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I think this is a very grave threat.
RTAG 9 TTI’m going to be very direct, and I hope it doesn’t get misinterpreted. I do not believe the traditional Republican Party could win this autumn. And the fact is we’re at an rim of a wave election, and if we end up with a wave election on their side, you can’t create enough fund to win normal races against that kind of wave.
RTAG 10 TTWe saw it in 1994 where reference is did it. We ascertained it in 2006 when the Democrat did it. We assured it in 2010 when John Boehner came up with a simple modeling: Where are the jobs?
RTAG 11 TTIf you start getting that kind of wave house, it’s very hard to be able to keep control. And our margin is not that big. In the great 62 -year period of Democratic dominance of the House, they would start elections with 60 -seat majorities. If they lost 25 or 30 seats, their margins would diminish, but they continued to in control. We’ve never been in control with that size margin.
RTAG 12 TTFor us to maintain Speaker Ryan and the House GOP majority in 2018 there are bold things we have to do.
RTAG 13 TTI’m going to draw a very deliberate difference. Just so you understand this isn’t just some hypothesi — get candidate Trump’s speech at Gettysburg in October of 2016, the president’s inaugural address last year, and the State of the Union you just watched Tuesday. Take those three and read carefully what President Trump says.
RTAG 14 TTHe is describing an American party that reaches out to every American, that induces the case that America is an idea worth fighting for. He suggests that we have a model for success: the American modeling of limited government, lower taxes, less red tape, more entrepreneurship, more take-home pay, more local control, which intends more local responsibility, and a foundation of rights that come from our Creator.
RTAG 15 TTYou take those three speeches, threw them together, and look what i found. What does that signify? What would a Trump Republican Party be like? We are not yet there. With Ronna’s leadership and the president’s leadership, we can get there. I believe by 2020, we will get there.
RTAG 16 TTI suppose President Trump will get re-elected virtually without regard to what happens this fall. But recollect, it’s one thing to invest 2019 and 2020 with Speaker Ryan and a Republican House get things done. It’s another thing to spend 2019 and 2020 in a life and death struggle against Speaker Pelosi and a Democratic House that will automatically want to impeach the president while having every House Committee launch investigations of the administration. They won’t have any idea what they’re impeaching him for and or what they are investigating for and it won’t matter to them. In the majority, House Democrat will invest two years in hostile assaults on the administration.
RTAG 17 TTYou may have realized the Fox and Friends interview of the New York University students who they asked on Monday morning, “What did you think of the president’s State of the Union speech? ” And these students said things like it was, “Hateful. It was racial speech. I can’t believe he said that.” It didn’t even matter that President Trump hadn’t given the State of the Union Address yet. This is the unthinkingly hostile Left we’re dealing with.
RTAG 18 TTWhat you considered at the State of the Union was the face of abhor. I signify where individuals sit there, and you explain to them that there’s the lowest black unemployment in history, and they can’t applaud. There’s the lowest Hispanic unemployment in history, and they can’t applaud. You’re looking at people so consumed by their ardours they can’t believe. Those are the people who will be in charge of the House if they win.
RTAG 19 TTSo, these next few months are really important, and here are a couple of very simple principles for a Trump Republican Party as opposed to a traditional Republican Party. Now, a Trump party largely develops out of the Reagan party and out of the 1994 Contract with America majority.
RTAG 20 TTFirst Principle: Go home and take on everyone. Don’t talking here safe seats , not safe seats, all this bologna. When we won control in 1994, we operated against every Democratic nominee except three.
RTAG 21 TTWe beat the chairman of Ways and Mean of downtown Chicago. We thumped the first Speaker of the House to lose since 1862. We thump the chair of the Judiciary Committee in the Houston suburbs. No Republican consultant would have recommended running against any of them.
RTAG 22 TTWe are in a similar situation this year because every Democrat went out idiotically and voted no on the largest taxation cut in your lifetime, and they have to go home and explain that.
RTAG 23 TTOne example from the State of the Union: We are not tough enough, we’re not fast enough, we don’t think aggressively enough. Last night, they picked somebody to answer the State of the Union, Congressman Joe Kennedy. He was symbolically perfect standing in front of a broken automobile because the Democrats can’t set anything.
RTAG 24 TTWe should have been asking Kennedy, “How could you vote against taxation cuts and the creation of jobs? The Style and Mean Committee has analyzed every congressional district in the country. You can go to the Behavior and Mean Committee website for your district. In Kennedy’s district a median-income household of four got a $5,800 tax cut. Now we should be all over him. How can he vote to take $5,800 away from their own families of four in his district to mail it to Washington bureaucrats? We should have utilized every social media tool so people watching his response were waiting for him to answer for his vote.
RTAG 25 TTNow, he’ll give you a left-wing answer. If you’re one of the families, how many have gone to find families of four and say, “What can you do with $5,800 per year, which is, by the way, $58,000 over 10 years? Do you think it’s better spent by a bureaucrat or you? ” I think we should take on every single member of the black caucus. Again, every single district in America, it turns out, has a net taxation cut. Every single one of the Democratic members of such Black caucus voted against the tax cut for their own people and could not applaud the lowest Black unemployment in history.
RTAG 26 TTNow, you can’t get much further distance from the traditional Republican consultants. but the truth is, too many Republican don’t have the nerve to go out to new neighborhoods and new voters. They talk in cost-benefit terms. Well, that’s not going to work if we are serious about growing a stable majority. I lost twice. And if we’d had that cost-benefit attitude toward my district, I’d never have gotten to Congress, and we wouldn’t have taken control in 1994.
RTAG 27 TTWe have to have the nerve to run nose-to-nose.
RTAG 28 TTSecond, don’t complain about the news media. The press and media is a reality. The news media is the offensive wing of the other squad. They are not their own problems. They are a fact. What we do about them is the problem. So, we have to designing a campaign programme, and we have to qualify our candidates accepting the worst about the news media. Whenever you interact with the news media you should assume you’re going into a war zone. You should plan to take the host psyche on and challenge their assumptions.
RTAG 29 TTI read the transcripts every Sunday. You would be amazed how many of our folks are too slow, too untrained, and don’t know what they’re talking about. So, they walk in as though George Stephanopoulos is neutral. I mean not only was he the Clinton press secretary, who dedicated $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, and we allowed him to chair a presidential debate in 2012. Now, you at least have a minimum regulation. Nobody who’s wholly on the Left is going to get to chair anything for this party’s good future.
RTAG 30 TTPoint One: Compete everywhere. BTAG 1 TT
RTAG 31 TTPoint Two: Designing strategies that win despite the news media because you overmatch them. BTAG 2 TT
RTAG 32 TTPoint Three: We have to have the courage to fight. You have to be prepared. When person get up, the junior senator from New York, and says, “You know, if you talk about chain migration, it’s racist.” But we need to say: “You must be losing this debate on the facts so badly that you’re now reduced to shriek’ racism, ’ which is, by the way, what the hell are you screaming about virtually anything, unless of course that’s homophobia or something else.” The Left has no contentions left except to holler nasty names.
RTAG 33 TTAnd we have to go nose-to-nose with them to knock them down mentally and psychologically. It’s very important for us to understand this is a fight. We are in a culture civil campaign with people who despise us. There’s no neutrality in there. And that’s why they dislike Trump so much, because Trump has the nerve to talk about MS-1 3 because they can’t answer it. The more he is right, the more angered they are.
RTAG 34 TTIf you’re a left-wing Democrat and totally for open margins, you can’t actually move up and say, “Well, I think it’s okay for a few hundred MS-1 3 folks to come in.” You merely can’t. So, then you get furious at Trump because he’s found the angle of attack you can’t defend. BTAG 3 TTBTAG 4 TT I would say to all the candidates: investigate Trump. Trump is only one of the greatest articulators I have ever seen. He understands fighting. He likes to fight, and he is prepared to figure out how to go at you at an angle you can’t defend. And that’s what we have to do for this whole campaign starting now.
RTAG 35 TTThe most useful book I have read to better understand this year is Karl Rove’s book on “ATAG 5 TTThe Triumph of William McKinley.” That 1896 campaign know it sounds obscure, but it relates directly to our challenge.
RTAG 36 TTMcKinley was faced with the great charismatic Democratic president, the youngest major party nominee in history at 36 years old, William Jennings Bryan. Bryan is such a great passionate articulator of demagogic populism and was so influential in the Democratic Party for two generations( nominated three times for chairperson) that Elizabeth Warren is his direct emotional descendant.
RTAG 37 TTHe literally- and I intend this as a tribute to Bryan- h e imprinted the Democratic Party with a negative, anti-elite, anti-city, anti-modernity kind of populism, a populism of wrath. He talks about mankind being crucified on a cross of gold. He says at one point that he wants grass to grow on the streets of the cities. McKinley realise he’s going to lose the election unless he violates the heart of Bryan’s argument. McKinley understood in 1896 what Margaret Thatcher said in the 1970 ’s when she cautioned: “First you win the statement. Then you win the election.” And so, McKinley made the most thorough education campaign in American history.
RTAG 38 TTThey printed 18 brochures for every American. That’s a scale of organization that’s unimaginable. And Karl, who’s a great professional, genuinely strolls you through it. The first part of the book the majority of members of it you won’t find all that exciting, because it’s about how he got the nomination- although it’s very useful. But the second half of the book is amazing and is the campaign we need this year.
RTAG 39 TTWe require a campaign that is going right at the philosophical basis of the modern Democratic Party. We require a campaign, for example, to say, “How many Americans do you think want to abolish the Medicare trust fund? ” That’s actually what’s in the Sanders bill that could create national health care. You know, to the average 65 -year-old or 55 -year-old say, “Hi, would you like to help Sanders in abolishing the Medicare Trust Fund? All it requires is that you trust politicians.”
RTAG 40 TTYou know, you could probably win that argument and keep them on defense all the time. So, I think it’s tremendously important. I think what Ronna is doing is extraordinarily important. She needs your help and every country in the two countries. I need your help talking to every incumbent and every candidate, and you need to understand, this is where we’re going. This is what we have to accomplish, and my final point is this: 50 percentage should be spent on the tax cuts.
RTAG 41 TTI mean literally, 50 percent of great efforts to should be explaining the tax cuts and their impact at multiple degrees. At a cultural level, it sets America back on the road to being an entrepreneurial culture. At the great economy level, it’s going to lead to growth- and at a personal level. When I talk about the instance of are to achieve everyone, are you trying to guess among all the Wal-Mart employees who just got bonuses what percent are African American? What percentage are Latino?
RTAG 42 TTNow today, they have no mechanism to say to them: “By the behavior, that was a Republican idea that just got money in your pocket.” That’s our occupation. It’s not their fault they don’t is well aware, and it’s certainly not NBC News’ fault. NBC News is the other team. So, we have to learn, and I would urge all of you to think about this literally. Fifty percent of great efforts to from now to election period should be very simple. We crave you to have money in your pocket, a better undertaking, a greater future, more fund in your 401 k for retirement. They want all of that fund for their bureaucrats and their giveaways. You pick which team you like. You think it’s better to have Washington spend your money, you have a great party: The Democrat. If you think it’s better for you to have the money, you have a great party, the Republican. The two parties are this far apart.
RTAG 43 TTAs RNC members, if you’ll do your job, if you’ll help persuade every single nominee and every single incumbent, we’ll change history only the way Trump changed history.
RTAG 44 TTSo, when reporters and analysts say, “Well, it’s the first word off-year election. The average losings are X.” My first guessed is, “How do you think President Clinton is doing? ”
RTAG 45 TTThe truth is “weve been” led by is someone who transgresses the records. We ought to join in this fall to break the record, and next year if we have won control of the House altogether- if we’ve picked up six or eight Senate seats- President Trump and the Republicans will be able to say, as Ronald Reagan used to say, “You ain’t insured nothing yet.”
