  • 00:05:27.070 --> 00:05:28.150
  • WHOLE BUNCH OF THINGS.
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:31.210
  • AND PEOPLE WOULD KNOW YOU, OR
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:34.020
  • MOST PEOPLE WOULD KNOW YOU WITH
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:36.050
  • THE NAME HUCKABEE AND A BIG "R"
  • 00:05:36.050 --> 00:05:38.200
  • AFTER YOUR NAME BECAUSE THAT'S
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:40.220
  • THE WAY THAT YOU'RE PRESENTED.
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.230
  • - MIKE: MM-HMM.
  • 00:05:42.230 --> 00:05:44.270
  • - MATT: BUT IN-- WHEN YOU WERE
  • 00:05:44.270 --> 00:05:45.190
  • ELECTED GOVERNOR, YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:05:45.190 --> 00:05:46.270
  • HAVE BEEN ELECTED IF SOME OF
  • 00:05:47.060 --> 00:05:50.060
  • THOSE PEOPLE WITH A "D" AFTER
  • 00:05:50.060 --> 00:05:51.200
  • THEIR NAME HADN'T VOTED FOR
  • 00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:52.270
  • YOU.
  • 00:05:52.270 --> 00:05:53.150
  • TALK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE.
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:54.290
  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE A WAY OF
  • 00:05:54.290 --> 00:05:57.020
  • COMMUNICATING ON BEHALF OF
  • 00:05:57.020 --> 00:05:58.120
  • AMERICANS -- NOT JUST HALF OF
  • 00:05:58.120 --> 00:05:59.250
  • THE AMERICANS.
  • 00:05:59.250 --> 00:06:01.160
  • AND THAT'S AN INTERESTING THING
  • 00:06:01.160 --> 00:06:02.190
  • THAT YOU EXPLAINED TO ME.
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:03.220
  • - MIKE: WELL, I'D LIKE TO
  • 00:06:03.220 --> 00:06:04.290
  • THINK OF MYSELF AS AN AMERICAN
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:05.200
  • FIRST.
  • 00:06:05.200 --> 00:06:07.010
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU RUN FOR
  • 00:06:07.010 --> 00:06:08.060
  • AND, FOR ME, IT WAS EASIER TO
  • 00:06:11.080 --> 00:06:11.290
  • BE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY --
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:12.200
  • FOR ONE REASON, BECAUSE I'M
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:13.240
  • VERY PRO-LIFE.
  • 00:06:13.240 --> 00:06:16.080
  • I BELIEVE THAT EVERY LIFE
  • 00:06:16.080 --> 00:06:16.270
  • MATTERS, THAT THERE'S NO SUCH
  • 00:06:16.270 --> 00:06:17.240
  • THING AS A LIFE WITHOUT
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:19.040
  • AND IN THIS PARTICULAR
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.030
  • POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT, THAT
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:23.070
  • KIND OF MADE IT CLEAR FOR ME.
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:25.040
  • AND THERE WERE MANY OTHER
  • 00:06:25.040 --> 00:06:25.230
  • FACTORS.
  • 00:06:25.230 --> 00:06:27.160
  • BUT WHEN I WAS ELECTED FIRST
  • 00:06:27.160 --> 00:06:28.290
  • LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, TWICE, AND
  • 00:06:28.290 --> 00:06:29.280
  • THEN BECAME GOVERNOR AND
  • 00:06:29.280 --> 00:06:30.260
  • REELECTED TWICE, YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:06:30.260 --> 00:06:33.000
  • UNDERSTAND THE ATMOSPHERE OF MY
  • 00:06:33.000 --> 00:06:34.140
  • HOME STATE OF ARKANSAS DURING
  • 00:06:34.140 --> 00:06:35.110
  • THAT TIME.
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:36.260
  • IT WAS THE MOST DEMOCRATIC
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:38.190
  • STATE IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:40.170
  • - MATT: OKAY.
  • 00:06:40.170 --> 00:06:41.020
  • - MIKE: MORE THAN CALIFORNIA,
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:41.290
  • MORE THAN MAINE, OR VERMONT, OR
  • 00:06:41.290 --> 00:06:42.280
  • MASSACHUSETTS, OR, UH,
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:45.000
  • WASHINGTON STATE, OR OREGON,
  • 00:06:45.000 --> 00:06:46.100
  • WHERE YOU THINK OF AS REAL, YOU
  • 00:06:46.100 --> 00:06:48.170
  • KNOW, CLEAR DEMOCRATIC
  • 00:06:48.170 --> 00:06:50.020
  • MAJORITIES.
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:51.260
  • OVER 91% OF ALL THE ELECTED
  • 00:06:51.260 --> 00:06:54.120
  • OFFICIALS IN THE STATE WERE
  • 00:06:54.120 --> 00:06:55.110
  • DEMOCRAT.
  • 00:06:55.110 --> 00:06:57.090
  • NO REPUBLICAN HAD BEEN ELECTED
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:06:58.000
  • TO ANY STATEWIDE OFFICE IN 25
  • 00:06:58.000 --> 00:06:59.060
  • YEARS.
  • 00:06:59.060 --> 00:07:00.170
  • ONLY THREE IN THE 150 YEARS
  • 00:07:00.170 --> 00:07:02.130
  • BEFORE ME HAD BEEN ELECTED.
  • 00:07:02.130 --> 00:07:04.210
  • WHEN I WAS ELECTED LIEUTENANT
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:06.140
  • GOVERNOR, I WAS THE ONLY
  • 00:07:06.140 --> 00:07:08.100
  • STATEWIDE-ELECTED REPUBLICAN IN
  • 00:07:08.100 --> 00:07:10.130
  • THE CAPITAL.
  • 00:07:10.130 --> 00:07:12.200
  • AND, BY THE WAY, THEY WERE SO
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:13.140
  • GLAD TO SEE ME THAT THEY NAILED
  • 00:07:13.140 --> 00:07:14.160
  • MY DOOR SHUT TO THE CAPITOL
  • 00:07:14.160 --> 00:07:16.270
  • JUST AS A WAY TO SAY: WE WISH
  • 00:07:16.270 --> 00:07:18.270
  • YOU WEREN'T HERE.
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.200
  • IT WAS A TOUGH ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:07:20.200 --> 00:07:21.100
  • BUT, WHAT I UNDERSTOOD FROM THE
  • 00:07:21.250 --> 00:07:24.250
  • BEGINNING WAS THIS: FOR MOST OF
  • 00:07:24.250 --> 00:07:26.070
  • US WHO PLAY THE POLITICAL GAME,
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:27.190
  • WHO ARE THE PRACTITIONERS OF
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:29.100
  • POLITICS, WE TEND TO SEE
  • 00:07:29.100 --> 00:07:31.160
  • EVERYTHING HORIZONTALLY.
  • 00:07:31.160 --> 00:07:33.070
  • LEFT, RIGHT, LIBERAL,
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:34.170
  • CONSERVATIVE, DEMOCRAT,
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:35.160
  • REPUBLICAN --
  • 00:07:35.160 --> 00:07:36.220
  • WE SEE IT ON THAT PLANE.
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:37.210
  • BUT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN
  • 00:07:37.210 --> 00:07:39.280
  • DOESN'T WAKE UP EVERY DAY AND
  • 00:07:39.280 --> 00:07:41.000
  • SEE THINGS LEFT-RIGHT.
  • 00:07:41.000 --> 00:07:42.030
  • THEY DON'T SEE IT
  • 00:07:42.030 --> 00:07:42.290
  • LIBERAL-CONSERVATIVE.
  • 00:07:42.290 --> 00:07:43.220
  • THEY DON'T SEE IT
  • 00:07:43.220 --> 00:07:44.270
  • DEMOCRAT-REPUBLICAN.
  • 00:07:44.270 --> 00:07:46.200
  • THEIR WORLD IS NOT LUXURIOUS
  • 00:07:46.200 --> 00:07:47.250
  • ENOUGH TO BE IDEOLOGICAL.
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.090
  • THEY GOTTA SAY: CAN I MAKE
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.000
  • ENOUGH MONEY THIS WEEK TO
  • 00:07:51.000 --> 00:07:52.160
  • PAY MY RENT, TO COVER THE
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:54.280
  • DOCTOR EXPENSES, UH, TO MAKE
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:56.280
  • SURE THAT MY KID HAS LUNCH
  • 00:07:56.280 --> 00:07:57.250
  • MONEY...
  • 00:07:57.250 --> 00:08:00.030
  • - MATT: PAY MY EMPLOYEES.
  • 00:08:00.030 --> 00:08:00.220
  • - MIKE: PAY MY EMPLOYEES -- IF
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:01.230
  • THEY'RE BUSINESS OWNERS.
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:02.220
  • - MATT: YEAH.
  • 00:08:02.220 --> 00:08:03.060
  • - MIKE: YOU KNOW, TAKE CARE OF
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:03.280
  • THE FUNDAMENTAL THINGS.
  • 00:08:03.280 --> 00:08:05.230
  • SO, THEY DON'T HAVE THE LUXURY
  • 00:08:05.230 --> 00:08:06.270
  • OF BEING THE IDEOLOGUES THAT
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:07.210
  • POLITICIANS HAVE.
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:08.190
  • SO, I'VE ALWAYS BELIEVED, MATT,
  • 00:08:08.190 --> 00:08:10.020
  • THAT THE HORIZONTAL APPROACH IS
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:14.050
  • REALLY NOT AN AMERICAN
  • 00:08:14.050 --> 00:08:15.060
  • APPROACH.
  • 00:08:15.060 --> 00:08:17.030
  • SO, I LOOK AT IT, RATHER THAN
  • 00:08:17.030 --> 00:08:18.070
  • HORIZONTALLY, VERTICALLY.
  • 00:08:18.070 --> 00:08:18.260
  • HERE'S MY ISSUE: ARE THINGS
  • 00:08:18.260 --> 00:08:20.000
  • GETTING BETTER OR ARE THEY
  • 00:08:20.000 --> 00:08:21.040
  • GETTING WORSE?
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:21.190
  • ARE WE GOING UP?
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:22.060
  • WE GOING DOWN?
  • 00:08:22.060 --> 00:08:23.080
  • I FOUND THAT WHEN I CAMPAIGNED
  • 00:08:23.140 --> 00:08:26.140
  • VERTICALLY AND WHEN I--
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:27.230
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN I GOVERNED
  • 00:08:27.230 --> 00:08:29.040
  • VERTICALLY--
  • 00:08:29.040 --> 00:08:30.170
  • AND I DIDN'T CARE WHETHER THE
  • 00:08:30.170 --> 00:08:31.240
  • IDEA WAS SO MUCH LEFT OR RIGHT;
  • 00:08:31.240 --> 00:08:33.120
  • I CARED: WAS IT UP OR DOWN?
  • 00:08:33.120 --> 00:08:34.280
  • WOULD IT MAKE LIFE FOR THE
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:37.120
  • PEOPLE OF MY STATE BETTER OR
  • 00:08:37.120 --> 00:08:38.210
  • WOULD IT BE WORSE?
  • 00:08:38.210 --> 00:08:40.020
  • AND, I'M CONVINCED THAT IT'S
  • 00:08:40.020 --> 00:08:41.270
  • WHAT WE'RE LACKING IN A LOT OF
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.050
  • AMERICAN POLITICS TODAY.
  • 00:08:43.050 --> 00:08:44.060
  • LOOK, I DON'T PRETEND THAT I'M
  • 00:08:44.060 --> 00:08:46.030
  • NEUTRAL.
  • 00:08:46.030 --> 00:08:47.250
  • 'CAUSE I'M NOT.
  • 00:08:47.250 --> 00:08:48.090
  • I'M IDEOLOGICAL, HAVE DEEP
  • 00:08:48.090 --> 00:08:50.060
  • CONVICTIONS ABOUT THINGS FROM A
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:51.010
  • POLICY PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:08:51.010 --> 00:08:54.010
  • BUT I ALSO BELIEVE THAT GOOD
  • 00:08:54.010 --> 00:08:56.090
  • GOVERNMENT IS NOT SO MUCH THE
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:59.160
  • HORIZONTAL AND IDEOLOGICAL
  • 00:08:59.160 --> 00:09:01.010
  • APPROACH.
  • 00:09:01.010 --> 00:09:02.030
  • REALLY GOOD GOVERNMENT IS
  • 00:09:02.030 --> 00:09:03.190
  • SOLUTION-BASED, IT'S PRAGMATIC,
  • 00:09:03.190 --> 00:09:04.280
  • IT'S WHAT WORKS.
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:06.100
  • SO, WHETHER IT'S HEALTHCARE OR
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:08.150
  • EDUCATION OR TRANSPORTATION OR
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:10.040
  • TAX POLICY, WHATEVER IT IS, THE
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:11.230
  • QUESTION IS: HOW DOES THIS
  • 00:09:11.230 --> 00:09:13.170
  • AFFECT PEOPLE?
  • 00:09:13.170 --> 00:09:15.220
  • DOES IT PUT 'EM ON THE UPWARD
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:18.020
  • END OF THE ELEVATOR...OR ARE
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:19.190
  • THEY GOING DOWNHILL?
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:21.180
  • AND THAT SHOULD BE THE CRITERIA
  • 00:09:21.180 --> 00:09:22.250
  • THAT WE LOOK AT A LOT MORE.
  • 00:09:22.250 --> 00:09:23.170
  • - MATT: SO, IN A STATE WHERE
  • 00:09:23.170 --> 00:09:25.180
  • 91% OF THE ELECTED OFFICIALS
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:27.130
  • WERE DEMOCRAT, YOU HAD TO SAY
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:29.180
  • THINGS THAT RESONATED WITH THE
  • 00:09:29.180 --> 00:09:31.260
  • OTHER PARTY.
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:34.150
  • AND WHAT PERCENTAGES DID YOU
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:35.050
  • END UP DEALING WITH IN YOUR
  • 00:09:35.050 --> 00:09:35.250
  • WINS AS GOVERNOR?
  • 00:09:35.250 --> 00:09:38.180
  • - MIKE: YOU KNOW, I GOT THE
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:39.270
  • KIND OF MARGINS THAT DEMOCRATS
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:41.120
  • TYPICALLY GOT.
  • 00:09:41.120 --> 00:09:43.030
  • BUT I WANNA BE VERY CLEAR: IT
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:44.070
  • WASN'T THAT I WENT AND SAID
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:45.020
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:09:45.020 --> 00:09:46.250
  • IT WASN'T THAT I WENT AND SAID
  • 00:09:46.250 --> 00:09:48.020
  • SOMETHING THAT I DID NOT
  • 00:09:48.020 --> 00:09:48.220
  • BELIEVE.
  • 00:09:48.220 --> 00:09:49.120
  • BUT I DIDN'T PUT IT IN THE
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:51.020
  • TERMS OF THE IDEOLOGY OF THE
  • 00:09:51.020 --> 00:09:52.230
  • RIGHT VERSUS THE LEFT.
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.120
  • - MATT: GOT IT.
  • 00:09:54.120 --> 00:09:55.160
  • - MIKE: SO, FOR EXAMPLE, IF I
  • 00:09:55.160 --> 00:09:57.090
  • WERE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:09:57.090 --> 00:09:58.220
  • EDUCATION, I WOULDN'T SAY, "WE
  • 00:09:58.220 --> 00:09:59.140
  • NEED A MORE CONSERVATIVE
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:00.120
  • APPROACH TO EDUCATION!"
  • 00:10:00.120 --> 00:10:01.000
  • I WOULDN'T SAY, "LET'S GET A
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:02.100
  • REPUBLICAN VERSION OF
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.240
  • EDUCATION."
  • 00:10:03.240 --> 00:10:05.170
  • I WOULD ASK THIS QUESTION: ARE
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:07.210
  • YOU BELIEVING THAT THE SCHOOL
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:10.090
  • WHERE YOUR KIDS ATTEND IS THE
  • 00:10:10.090 --> 00:10:11.050
  • BEST IT COULD BE?
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:13.270
  • WOULD YOU LIKE TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:10:13.270 --> 00:10:15.030
  • THAT IF YOUR CHILDREN SPEND 12
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:16.220
  • OR 13 YEARS, K-12, IN A PUBLIC
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:19.030
  • SCHOOL THAT YOU'RE PAYING FOR
  • 00:10:19.030 --> 00:10:22.010
  • THAT WHEN THEY GET OUT THEY'RE
  • 00:10:22.010 --> 00:10:24.020
  • A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:24.290
  • FUNCTIONALLY ILLITERATE...
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:26.220
  • - MATT: HMMH.
  • 00:10:26.220 --> 00:10:27.080
  • - MIKE: ...AND THAT THEY HAVE
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.020
  • A REAL SHOT AT GOING FORTH IN
  • 00:10:28.020 --> 00:10:29.010
  • THE WORLD AND DOING WHATEVER
  • 00:10:29.010 --> 00:10:29.210
  • THEY WANNA DO?
  • 00:10:29.210 --> 00:10:30.070
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:10:30.070 --> 00:10:31.090
  • I DON'T CARE WHETHER YOU'RE THE
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:32.280
  • MOST HARDCORE DEMOCRAT IN THE
  • 00:10:32.280 --> 00:10:34.020
  • WORLD -- IF SOMEBODY IS GONNA
  • 00:10:34.020 --> 00:10:36.180
  • MAKE EDUCATION BETTER, THAT
  • 00:10:36.180 --> 00:10:37.120
  • MATTERS TO YOU.
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:39.290
  • TO PUT IT IN ANOTHER TERM.
  • 00:10:39.290 --> 00:10:41.180
  • LET'S SAY YOU IF YOU WERE A
  • 00:10:41.180 --> 00:10:42.080
  • MAYOR.
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:43.130
  • PEOPLE DON'T CARE WHETHER
  • 00:10:43.130 --> 00:10:44.020
  • YOU'RE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN.
  • 00:10:44.020 --> 00:10:45.130
  • THEY WANT THE TRASH PICKED UP
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:46.170
  • ON TIME, THEY WANT THE PARKS
  • 00:10:46.170 --> 00:10:47.270
  • CLEANED SO THEIR KIDS CAN GO
  • 00:10:47.270 --> 00:10:49.010
  • AND PLAY IN 'EM, THEY WANT TO
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:51.000
  • MAKE SURE THE POTHOLES ARE
  • 00:10:51.000 --> 00:10:51.190
  • FIXED.
  • 00:10:51.190 --> 00:10:53.030
  • THOSE ARE PRACTICAL ISSUES.
  • 00:10:53.030 --> 00:10:55.090
  • SO, I LOOKED AT MY SENSE OF
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:56.130
  • GOVERNING AS NO MATTER WHAT
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:58.060
  • WE'RE GONNA APPROACH, HOW ARE
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:10:59.280
  • WE GONNA MAKE THIS SO THAT FOR
  • 00:10:59.280 --> 00:11:01.110
  • EVERY ARKANSAN THINGS GET
  • 00:11:01.110 --> 00:11:03.200
  • BETTER NOT WORSE?
  • 00:11:03.200 --> 00:11:05.040
  • AND HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE TO
  • 00:11:05.040 --> 00:11:06.220
  • THEM THAT THIS ISN'T ABOUT
  • 00:11:06.220 --> 00:11:08.060
  • MAKING A REPUBLICAN
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:10.010
  • ADMINISTRATION?
  • 00:11:10.010 --> 00:11:11.240
  • THIS IS ABOUT MAKING IT FOR THE
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:13.180
  • PEOPLE OF THE STATE AND GIVING
  • 00:11:13.180 --> 00:11:15.070
  • THEM A BETTER PLACE.
  • 00:11:15.070 --> 00:11:17.010
  • NOW, TO DO THAT, I HAD TO GO TO
  • 00:11:17.010 --> 00:11:17.260
  • DEMOCRATS AND SAY: "LOOK,
  • 00:11:17.260 --> 00:11:18.250
  • HERE'S WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO.
  • 00:11:18.250 --> 00:11:21.050
  • DON'T YOU WANT SCHOOLS TO BE
  • 00:11:21.050 --> 00:11:21.250
  • BETTER?"
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:22.090
  • AND LET ME BE VERY FAIR: TO THE
  • 00:11:22.090 --> 00:11:24.170
  • CREDIT OF MANY DEMOCRATS WHO
  • 00:11:24.170 --> 00:11:27.000
  • WERE IN THE LEGISLATURE-- THERE
  • 00:11:27.000 --> 00:11:28.160
  • WERE SOME WHO DIDN'T LIKE ME,
  • 00:11:28.160 --> 00:11:29.140
  • NEVER WOULD.
  • 00:11:29.140 --> 00:11:29.280
  • BUT THERE WERE OTHERS WHO WERE
  • 00:11:29.280 --> 00:11:31.140
  • STATESMEN.
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:33.200
  • AND THEY SAID, "YOU KNOW, I
  • 00:11:33.200 --> 00:11:35.040
  • DIDN'T VOTE FOR YOU, MAY NEVER
  • 00:11:35.040 --> 00:11:36.250
  • VOTE FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:11:36.250 --> 00:11:38.080
  • PROPOSING IS AN IDEA I CAN GET
  • 00:11:38.080 --> 00:11:38.290
  • BEHIND."
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:41.020
  • AND IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR SOME
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:41.280
  • OF THOSE FOLKS, UM, IT WOULD
  • 00:11:41.280 --> 00:11:43.100

  • LET'S LET SOME PEOPLE ARGUE.
  • 00:12:31.000 --> 00:12:32.080
  • LET ME BE UNBELIEVABLY CLEAR:
  • 00:12:32.080 --> 00:12:34.290

  • OVER EACH OTHER.
  • 00:12:36.000 --> 00:12:38.120
  • I DON'T LIKE UNNECESSARY

  • DECLINE.
  • 00:20:35.100 --> 00:20:36.180

  • [LAURIE LAUGHS]
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:40.020
  • BUT, IN ALL HONESTY I DID
  • 00:20:40.040 --> 00:20:43.040
  • THINGS THAT WERE VERY
  • 00:20:43.040 --> 00:20:43.210
  • DIFFERENT.
  • 00:20:43.210 --> 00:20:44.050
  • WE USED RADIO, WE CREATED OUR
  • 00:20:44.050 --> 00:20:46.020
  • OWN TELEVISION CHANNEL IN THIS
  • 00:20:46.020 --> 00:20:47.170
  • CHURCH...
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:48.200

  • - MIKE: ...FOR THE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:20:50.140 --> 00:20:51.050
  • WE DID COMMENT PROGRAMMING.
  • 00:20:51.050 --> 00:20:51.250
  • SO, WE WERE REACHING OUT TO THE
  • 00:20:51.250 --> 00:20:52.200
  • COMMUNITY DOING THINGS IN THE
  • 00:20:52.200 --> 00:20:54.040
  • SCHOOLS AND IN THE COMMUNITY
  • 00:20:54.040 --> 00:20:55.070
  • AND-- AND DOING HIGH SCHOOL

  • FOOTBALL.
  • 00:20:57.050 --> 00:20:59.020
  • NOBODY ELSE WAS DOING THAT IN
  • 00:20:59.020 --> 00:21:00.150
  • THAT COMMUNITY.
  • 00:21:00.150 --> 00:21:02.160
  • IT BLEW THE DOORS OFF THE
  • 00:21:02.160 --> 00:21:04.270
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:21:04.270 --> 00:21:06.150
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:21:06.150 --> 00:21:07.000
  • - MIKE: BECAUSE PEOPLE BEGAN

  • THEM...
  • 00:21:09.130 --> 00:21:09.290
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:21:09.290 --> 00:21:10.160
  • - MIKE: ...AS PEOPLE.
  • 00:21:10.160 --> 00:21:11.050
  • AND SO, AFTER SIX REALLY
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:13.080
  • WONDERFUL YEARS IN THAT
  • 00:21:13.080 --> 00:21:14.260
  • CONGREGATION, A CHURCH IN
  • 00:21:14.260 --> 00:21:16.220
  • TEXARKANA, ARKANSAS SAID, "WE'D
  • 00:21:16.220 --> 00:21:18.140
  • LIKE YOU TO COME BE PASTOR."
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:19.150
  • BUT THIS TIME, I'M THINKING:
  • 00:21:19.150 --> 00:21:21.260
  • BOY, I'M REALLY GETTING SOME
  • 00:21:21.260 --> 00:21:23.290
  • LONG DELAYS HERE ON THIS
  • 00:21:23.290 --> 00:21:25.150
  • POLITICAL IDEA.
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:27.220
  • UM, BUT I TOLD 'EM, I SAID: "I
  • 00:21:27.220 --> 00:21:29.050
  • ONLY KNOW TO DO WHAT I KNOW TO
  • 00:21:29.050 --> 00:21:29.260
  • DO.
  • 00:21:29.260 --> 00:21:32.020
  • AND IF YOU'RE NOT INTERESTED IN
  • 00:21:32.020 --> 00:21:32.240
  • DOING MEDIA AND USING THAT AS
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:33.210
  • AN OUTREACH TOOL, THEN I'M
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:36.120
  • PROBABLY NOT YOUR GUY."
  • 00:21:36.120 --> 00:21:37.120
  • THEY SAID, "WELL, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:38.030
  • WE WANT YOU TO DO."
  • 00:21:38.030 --> 00:21:38.190
  • SO, I WENT TO, UH, CHURCH IN
  • 00:21:38.190 --> 00:21:39.090
  • TEXARKANA.
  • 00:21:39.090 --> 00:21:41.160
  • I WAS THERE FOR, UH, FIVE AND A
  • 00:21:41.160 --> 00:21:42.280
  • HALF YEARS.
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:44.160
  • AND, UH, AGAIN, WE BUILT A
  • 00:21:44.160 --> 00:21:45.260
  • TELEVISION CHANNEL, WE DID ALL
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:48.030
  • SORTS OF INNOVATIVE OUTREACH.
  • 00:21:48.030 --> 00:21:50.270
  • AND IT WAS A WONDERFUL TIME IN
  • 00:21:50.270 --> 00:21:51.240
  • MY LIFE.
  • 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:53.250
  • LOOKING BACK, I KNOW THAT THAT
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:56.020
  • WAS A PART OF SCHOOLING.
  • 00:21:56.020 --> 00:21:59.000
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:21:59.000 --> 00:21:59.150
  • - MIKE: IT WAS GOD'S SCHOOL
  • 00:21:59.150 --> 00:22:00.220
  • FOR ME.
  • 00:22:00.220 --> 00:22:01.060
  • AND GOD ALWAYS PUTS US IN THE
  • 00:22:01.060 --> 00:22:02.270
  • EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT IN
  • 00:22:02.270 --> 00:22:03.160
  • WHICH WE CAN BEST PREPARE FOR
  • 00:22:03.160 --> 00:22:05.050
  • THE NEXT STEP.
  • 00:22:05.050 --> 00:22:05.290
  • SO, I'VE NEVER HAD ANY DOUBT
  • 00:22:05.290 --> 00:22:08.050
  • THAT GOD WANTED ME IN THOSE
  • 00:22:08.050 --> 00:22:09.110
  • PASTORATES.
  • 00:22:09.110 --> 00:22:09.280
  • THAT WAS HIS CALL.
  • 00:22:09.280 --> 00:22:12.050
  • BUT I'VE ALSO NEVER HAD ANY
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:13.100
  • DOUBT ABOUT THE TIME TO LEAVE
  • 00:22:14.190 --> 00:22:17.190
  • AND TO TAKE A HUGE STEP OF
  • 00:22:17.190 --> 00:22:18.080
  • FAITH TO WALK AWAY FROM A
  • 00:22:18.080 --> 00:22:19.290
  • PRETTY DECENT SOLID INCOME AND
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:22.100
  • TO JUMP OUT INTO THE POLITICAL
  • 00:22:22.100 --> 00:22:23.160
  • WATERS OF UNCERTAINTY.
  • 00:22:23.160 --> 00:22:25.060
  • AND, UH, THAT'S HOW THAT ENDED
  • 00:22:25.060 --> 00:22:26.190
  • UP.
  • 00:22:26.190 --> 00:22:27.220
  • BUT, FOR MOST PEOPLE, THEY
  • 00:22:27.220 --> 00:22:29.020
  • THINK I WAS JUST A PASTOR
  • 00:22:29.020 --> 00:22:30.040
  • AND THEN ONE DAY I WALKED OUT
  • 00:22:30.040 --> 00:22:31.150
  • OF THE PULPIT AND THERE I
  • 00:22:31.150 --> 00:22:33.130

  • STATE.
  • 00:22:34.080 --> 00:22:34.250
  • IT WASN'T QUITE THAT SIMPLE.

  • THE MEDICINE CABINET; IT'S
  • 00:24:39.030 --> 00:24:40.100
  • ACTUALLY TO REACH IN OURSELVES

  • YELLING.
  • 00:29:47.290 --> 00:29:50.090
  • [CHUCKLES]

  • CHRISTIAN TELEVISION IN THE
  • 00:29:51.170 --> 00:29:52.150
  • LAST FEW MONTHS THAN I EVER, I
  • 00:29:52.150 --> 00:29:53.160
  • THINK, IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
  • 00:29:54.210 --> 00:29:57.210
  • AND THERE'S BEEN SUCH A
  • 00:29:57.210 --> 00:29:58.090
  • DIVISION.
  • 00:29:58.090 --> 00:29:59.010
  • PASTOR GOVERNOR HUCKABEE, UM,
  • 00:29:59.010 --> 00:30:00.000
  • CAN YOU SPEAK TO, UM--
  • 00:30:00.000 --> 00:30:01.230
  • I'VE SEEN...I'VE SEEN
  • 00:30:01.240 --> 00:30:04.240
  • RELATIONSHIPS IN MINISTRY,
  • 00:30:04.240 --> 00:30:06.120
  • YEARS-LONG MINIS-- UH,
  • 00:30:06.120 --> 00:30:07.250
  • RELATIONSHIPS BE TORN APART
  • 00:30:07.250 --> 00:30:09.110
  • DURING THIS TIME.
  • 00:30:09.110 --> 00:30:12.030
  • AND IT'S LIKE...THE FAMILY OF
  • 00:30:12.030 --> 00:30:15.030
  • GOD HAS LOOKED TO POLITICS MORE
  • 00:30:15.030 --> 00:30:16.190
  • THAN THEY HAVE--
  • 00:30:16.190 --> 00:30:19.030
  • - MATT: TO THE CHURCH.

  • LORDS, YOU KNOW.

  • AND IT'S JUST...IT'S BEEN JUST
  • 00:30:24.040 --> 00:30:26.240
  • HEARTBREAKING FOR ME TO SEE THE
  • 00:30:26.240 --> 00:30:27.190
  • GREAT DIVIDE.
  • 00:30:27.190 --> 00:30:29.260
  • CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT IN ANY
  • 00:30:29.260 --> 00:30:30.160
  • - MIKE: YOU KNOW, LAURIE,
  • 00:30:33.100 --> 00:30:33.290
  • WE'RE SEEING AN UNPRECEDENTED
  • 00:30:33.290 --> 00:30:35.030
  • LEVEL OF DIVISION AND
  • 00:30:35.030 --> 00:30:36.230
  • POLARIZATION IN OUR ENTIRE
  • 00:30:36.230 --> 00:30:37.130
  • CULTURE.
  • 00:30:37.130 --> 00:30:37.280
  • AND IT'S NOT JUST POLITICAL.
  • 00:30:37.280 --> 00:30:39.100
  • IT'S THROUGHOUT THE CULTURE.
  • 00:30:39.100 --> 00:30:40.000
  • AND SO, WHEN PEOPLE TAKE A
  • 00:30:40.000 --> 00:30:41.230
  • POSITION, IT'S NO LONGER THAT:
  • 00:30:41.230 --> 00:30:43.030
  • "WELL, THAT'S AN INTERESTING
  • 00:30:43.030 --> 00:30:44.010
  • POINT OF VIEW -- NEVER THOUGHT
  • 00:30:44.010 --> 00:30:45.120
  • ABOUT IT THAT WAY."
  • 00:30:45.120 --> 00:30:47.080
  • NOW, WE DEMONIZE EACH OTHER.
  • 00:30:47.080 --> 00:30:48.240
  • - LAURIE: YEAH.
  • 00:30:48.240 --> 00:30:49.080
  • - MIKE: IF YOU TAKE A POSITION
  • 00:30:49.080 --> 00:30:50.220
  • THAT'S DIFFERENT THAN MINE ON A
  • 00:30:50.220 --> 00:30:52.030
  • POLITICAL OR SOCIAL OR CULTURAL
  • 00:30:52.030 --> 00:30:53.200
  • ISSUE, THEN IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR
  • 00:30:53.200 --> 00:30:56.170
  • ME TO SAY: "HMMM...INTERESTING.
  • 00:30:56.170 --> 00:30:59.050
  • IT'S NOW ABOUT DESTROYING THE
  • 00:31:02.200 --> 00:31:03.110
  • OTHER SIDE.
  • 00:31:03.110 --> 00:31:04.260
  • THAT'S NOT HEALTHY FOR OUR
  • 00:31:04.260 --> 00:31:06.250
  • COUNTRY, FOR OUR FAMILIES.
  • 00:31:06.250 --> 00:31:08.000
  • BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THAT
  • 00:31:08.000 --> 00:31:10.020
  • THE ANSWER IS GONNA BE IN
  • 00:31:10.020 --> 00:31:11.080
  • THE NEXT ELECTION.
  • 00:31:11.080 --> 00:31:12.040
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:31:12.040 --> 00:31:12.200
  • - MIKE: WELL, IT ISN'T.
  • 00:31:12.200 --> 00:31:13.100
  • - LAURIE: NO.
  • 00:31:13.100 --> 00:31:13.260
  • - MIKE: ELECTIONS ARE
  • 00:31:13.260 --> 00:31:14.140
  • IMPORTANT.
  • 00:31:14.140 --> 00:31:14.280
  • YOU KNOW WHAT THE REAL ANSWER--
  • 00:31:14.280 --> 00:31:16.080
  • IS A SPIRITUAL REFORMATION.
  • 00:31:16.080 --> 00:31:17.040
  • - LAURIE: YES.
  • 00:31:17.040 --> 00:31:17.260
  • - MATT: MM-HMM.
  • 00:31:17.260 --> 00:31:18.190
  • - MIKE: WE NEED SOMETHING
  • 00:31:18.190 --> 00:31:19.080
  • HAPPENING IN THE HEARTS OF
  • 00:31:19.080 --> 00:31:19.270
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:31:19.270 --> 00:31:21.000
  • WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAY, "HOW DO
  • 00:31:21.000 --> 00:31:22.150
  • YOU EVER HEAL RACIAL DIVIDE?"
  • 00:31:22.150 --> 00:31:23.230
  • YOU DON'T DO IT POLITICALLY
  • 00:31:23.230 --> 00:31:25.150
  • BECAUSE THAT'S AN EXTERNAL
  • 00:31:25.150 --> 00:31:26.230
  • FORCE.
  • 00:31:26.230 --> 00:31:27.110
  • POLITICS IS ALWAYS FROM THE
  • 00:31:27.110 --> 00:31:28.180
  • OUTSIDE IN.
  • 00:31:28.180 --> 00:31:30.160
  • IT HAS TO BE FROM THE INSIDE
  • 00:31:30.160 --> 00:31:31.060
  • OUT.
  • 00:31:31.060 --> 00:31:32.170
  • AND, I'LL TELL YOU -- IT'S HARD
  • 00:31:32.170 --> 00:31:33.290
  • FOR ME -- IT WOULD BE
  • 00:31:33.290 --> 00:31:34.210
  • IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME -- TO BE A
  • 00:31:34.210 --> 00:31:36.050
  • RACIST IF I LOVE GOD.
  • 00:31:36.180 --> 00:31:39.180
  • HOW CAN I LOVE YOU-- IF GOD
  • 00:31:39.180 --> 00:31:40.220
  • MADE YOU AND LOVES YOU AS MUCH
  • 00:31:40.220 --> 00:31:43.170
  • AS HE LOVES ME, HOW CAN I SAY
  • 00:31:43.170 --> 00:31:44.270
  • THAT I LOVE GOD IF I CANNOT
  • 00:31:44.270 --> 00:31:45.290
  • LOVE YOU?
  • 00:31:45.290 --> 00:31:48.180
  • - LAURIE: RIGHT.
  • 00:31:48.180 --> 00:31:49.110
  • - MIKE: FACT IS, THEN, IF I
  • 00:31:49.110 --> 00:31:51.230
  • HATE YOU, I HATE THE GOD WHO
  • 00:31:51.230 --> 00:31:52.130
  • MADE YOU.
  • 00:31:52.130 --> 00:31:52.240
  • THEREFORE, I'M NOT OF GOD.
  • 00:31:52.240 --> 00:31:54.000
  • SO, I'VE GOT TO COME TO GRIPS
  • 00:31:54.000 --> 00:31:55.030
  • WITH THE FACT THAT RACIAL
  • 00:31:55.030 --> 00:31:56.120
  • RECONCILIATION IS NOT ABOUT A
  • 00:31:56.120 --> 00:31:58.180
  • POLICY, A LEGISLATIVE ACT; IT'S
  • 00:31:58.180 --> 00:32:00.270
  • ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS COMING UNDER
  • 00:32:00.270 --> 00:32:02.250
  • THE AUTHORITY OF A GOD WHO'S
  • 00:32:02.250 --> 00:32:05.080
  • BIGGER THAN ALL OF US.
  • 00:32:05.080 --> 00:32:06.180
  • - LAURIE: YES.
  • 00:32:06.180 --> 00:32:07.020
  • - MATT: THINK ABOUT THIS: YOU
  • 00:32:07.020 --> 00:32:07.260
  • KNOW, IN THE FIRST-CENTURY
  • 00:32:07.260 --> 00:32:09.140
  • CHURCH, UM...THE ONLY WAY YOU
  • 00:32:11.010 --> 00:32:14.010
  • WERE TO BE KNOWN AS A FOLLOWER
  • 00:32:14.010 --> 00:32:16.000
  • OF CHRIST IS BY ONE THING --
  • 00:32:16.000 --> 00:32:16.280
  • LOVE.
  • 00:32:16.280 --> 00:32:19.010
  • - LAURIE: MMH.
  • 00:32:19.010 --> 00:32:19.250
  • - MATT: LOVE YOUR GOD WITH ALL
  • 00:32:19.250 --> 00:32:20.170
  • YOUR HEART, LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR
  • 00:32:20.170 --> 00:32:21.080
  • AS YOURSELF.
  • 00:32:21.080 --> 00:32:22.250
  • SO, UNLESS YOU WERE LOVING YOUR
  • 00:32:22.250 --> 00:32:24.150
  • NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF, YOU
  • 00:32:24.150 --> 00:32:26.030
  • WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED
  • 00:32:26.030 --> 00:32:27.160
  • AS A FOLLOWER OF JESUS.
  • 00:32:27.160 --> 00:32:29.060
  • NOW, IF YOU ZOOM 2.000 YEARS
  • 00:32:29.060 --> 00:32:31.000
  • LATER, WE'RE KNOWN FOR WHAT WE
  • 00:32:31.000 --> 00:32:33.060
  • BELIEVE, NOT WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:32:33.060 --> 00:32:34.050
  • - MIKE: WELL SAID.
  • 00:32:34.050 --> 00:32:34.270
  • - MATT: SO, BASICALLY, THE
  • 00:32:34.270 --> 00:32:37.090
  • IDEA THAT ANYBODY THAT IS DOING
  • 00:32:37.170 --> 00:32:40.170
  • THIS RACIAL SUPREMACY TYPE OF
  • 00:32:40.170 --> 00:32:42.160
  • STUFF...
  • 00:32:42.160 --> 00:32:44.180
  • - LAURIE: OH, JESUS, HELP
  • 00:32:44.180 --> 00:32:45.110
  • US...
  • 00:32:45.110 --> 00:32:46.100
  • - MIKE: ...THAT'S LITERALLY
  • 00:32:46.100 --> 00:32:47.010
  • JUST FROM THE PIT OF HELL.
  • 00:32:47.010 --> 00:32:47.200
  • - LAURIE: FROM HELL.
  • 00:32:47.200 --> 00:32:48.070
  • - MATT: THAT IS A DEMONIC
  • 00:32:48.070 --> 00:32:49.190
  • FORCE, UH, YOU KNOW, NOT
  • 00:32:49.190 --> 00:32:52.100
  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING
  • 00:32:52.100 --> 00:32:53.040
  • ELSE.
  • 00:32:53.060 --> 00:32:56.060
  • AND THE IDEA THAT WE GOTTA GET
  • 00:32:56.060 --> 00:32:57.190
  • ON TOP OF THAT, AS THE CHURCH,
  • 00:32:57.190 --> 00:32:59.120
  • IS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:32:59.120 --> 00:33:00.250
  • - MIKE: IT IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:33:00.250 --> 00:33:02.070
  • YOU KNOW, THE IDEA OF WHITE
  • 00:33:02.070 --> 00:33:03.250
  • SUPREMACY, OR ANY TYPE OF
  • 00:33:03.250 --> 00:33:05.180
  • SUPREMACY -- IT DOESN'T MATTER
  • 00:33:05.180 --> 00:33:07.290
  • WHERE IT COMES FROM, BUT THAT'S
  • 00:33:07.290 --> 00:33:09.000
  • THE ONE THAT SEEMS TO BE
  • 00:33:09.000 --> 00:33:09.210
  • BUBBLING UP RIGHT NOW IN OUR
  • 00:33:09.210 --> 00:33:10.210
  • CULTURE -- HOW UNGODLY CAN
  • 00:33:10.210 --> 00:33:13.050
  • SOMETHING BE?
  • 00:33:13.050 --> 00:33:14.200
  • IT'S SINFUL, IT'S EVIL.
  • 00:33:14.200 --> 00:33:15.080
  • THERE'S NOTHING -- NOTHING --
  • 00:33:15.080 --> 00:33:17.250
  • ABOUT THAT THAT ISN'T HEINOUS.
  • 00:33:17.250 --> 00:33:19.170
  • AND THE REASON IS IS BECAUSE IT
  • 00:33:19.170 --> 00:33:20.230
  • WOULD MEAN THAT GOD LOVES SOME
  • 00:33:20.230 --> 00:33:23.010
  • PEOPLE MORE THAN HE LOVES
  • 00:33:23.010 --> 00:33:24.060
  • OTHERS.
  • 00:33:24.060 --> 00:33:24.280
  • - MATT: RIGHT.
  • 00:33:24.280 --> 00:33:25.150
  • - MIKE: THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE
  • 00:33:25.150 --> 00:33:26.060
  • TO BELIEVE TO GET THERE.
  • 00:33:26.060 --> 00:33:28.060
  • WELL, THERE IS NO BIBLICAL
  • 00:33:28.060 --> 00:33:30.010
  • BASIS WHATSOEVER TO BELIEVE
  • 00:33:30.110 --> 00:33:33.110
  • THAT GOD IS A RESPECTER OF
  • 00:33:33.110 --> 00:33:35.120
  • PERSONS 'CAUSE WE KNOW, IN
  • 00:33:35.120 --> 00:33:36.290
  • FACT, THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT
  • 00:33:36.290 --> 00:33:37.200
  • HE ISN'T.
  • 00:33:37.200 --> 00:33:39.020
  • WE KNOW THAT GOD DOESN'T LOVE
  • 00:33:39.020 --> 00:33:40.030
  • SOME PEOPLE MORE THAN OTHERS...
  • 00:33:40.030 --> 00:33:41.000
  • - LAURIE: RIGHT.
  • 00:33:41.000 --> 00:33:42.020
  • - MIKE: ...THAT HE HASN'T
  • 00:33:42.020 --> 00:33:42.210
  • ELEVATED SOME PEOPLE UP AND
  • 00:33:42.210 --> 00:33:43.110
  • TORN OTHER PEOPLE DOWN IN A WAY
  • 00:33:43.110 --> 00:33:45.240
  • BECAUSE HE VALUES SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:33:45.240 --> 00:33:47.070
  • AND HE DOESN'T VALUE OTHER
  • 00:33:47.070 --> 00:33:48.040
  • PEOPLE.
  • 00:33:48.040 --> 00:33:51.020
  • THIS IS WHY THIS WHOLE IDEA OF
  • 00:33:51.020 --> 00:33:53.160
  • TRUE HATRED AND RACISM IS
  • 00:33:53.160 --> 00:33:56.120
  • SIMPLY COMPLETELY INCOMPATIBLE
  • 00:33:56.180 --> 00:33:59.180
  • WITH ANY REAL UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:33:59.210 --> 00:34:02.230
  • BOTH OF BIBLICAL FAITH BUT ALSO
  • 00:34:02.230 --> 00:34:04.160
  • - MATT: SO, IF YOU'RE JUST
  • 00:34:08.210 --> 00:34:09.110

  • ON ONE OF HIS ARMS, THIS
  • 00:34:28.110 --> 00:34:29.000
  • STATISTIC.
  • 00:34:29.000 --> 00:34:30.110

  • WHAT THE VIEWERSHIP OF THE

  • 00:41:51.160 --> 00:41:52.270
  • THE SPOT, OR MAKE THEM
  • 00:41:52.270 --> 00:41:54.140
  • UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:41:54.140 --> 00:41:56.120
  • IF YOU'RE THE HOST, ISN'T IT
  • 00:41:56.120 --> 00:41:58.200
  • YOUR JOB TO MAKE PEOPLE BE AS
  • 00:41:58.200 --> 00:41:59.220
  • COMFORTABLE AS THEY CAN?
  • 00:41:59.220 --> 00:42:02.120
  • SO, WHEN I BRING A GUEST ON THE
  • 00:42:02.120 --> 00:42:03.210
  • "HUCKABEE" SHOW ON TBN, MY GOAL
  • 00:42:03.260 --> 00:42:06.260
  • IS TO MAKE THEM FEEL AT HOME,
  • 00:42:06.260 --> 00:42:08.070
  • TO MAKE THEM BE WELCOME.
  • 00:42:08.070 --> 00:42:10.120
  • NOW, I'M GONNA BRING SOME
  • 00:42:10.120 --> 00:42:11.010
  • PEOPLE ON THE SHOW THAT I DON'T
  • 00:42:11.010 --> 00:42:11.260
  • AGREE WITH.
  • 00:42:11.260 --> 00:42:13.090
  • I DID THAT AT FOX EVERY WEEK.
  • 00:42:13.090 --> 00:42:14.130
  • I HAD PEOPLE ON THAT...WERE 180
  • 00:42:14.130 --> 00:42:17.080
  • DEGREES FROM ME.
  • 00:42:17.080 --> 00:42:18.160
  • AND I HAD SOME OF THE BEST
  • 00:42:18.160 --> 00:42:19.240
  • CONVERSATIONS OF MY LIFE WITH
  • 00:42:19.240 --> 00:42:21.290
  • PEOPLE THAT I HAD VERY LITTLE
  • 00:42:21.290 --> 00:42:22.260
  • IN COMMON WITH.
  • 00:42:22.260 --> 00:42:23.290
  • BUT, OVER THE COURSE OF THE
  • 00:42:23.290 --> 00:42:25.170
  • CONVERSATION, WE FOUND THAT WE
  • 00:42:25.170 --> 00:42:26.210
  • HAD SOME THINGS IN COMMON.
  • 00:42:26.210 --> 00:42:27.200
  • I'LL GIVE YOU A COUPLE OF
  • 00:42:27.200 --> 00:42:28.090
  • EXAMPLES.
  • 00:42:28.090 --> 00:42:29.240
  • AND THIS'LL BE DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:42:29.240 --> 00:42:30.150
  • PEOPLE MAYBE YOU'VE EVER SEEN ON
  • 00:42:30.150 --> 00:42:31.260
  • TV AND MAYBE ON TBN.
  • 00:42:31.260 --> 00:42:33.050
  • I REMEMBER MELISSA ETHERIDGE
  • 00:42:33.050 --> 00:42:36.040
  • WAS ON MY SHOW.
  • 00:42:36.140 --> 00:42:39.140
  • MELISSA AND I ARE PROBABLY
  • 00:42:39.140 --> 00:42:40.280
  • AS DIFFERENT PHILOSOPHICALLY AS
  • 00:42:40.280 --> 00:42:41.220
  • WE COULD BE -- POLITICALLY,
  • 00:42:41.220 --> 00:42:42.270
  • CULTURALLY.
  • 00:42:42.270 --> 00:42:44.250
  • BUT I HAD A WONDERFUL,
  • 00:42:44.290 --> 00:42:47.290
  • ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL
  • 00:42:47.290 --> 00:42:50.030
  • EXPERIENCE TALKING WITH
  • 00:42:50.030 --> 00:42:51.110
  • MELISSA AND MAKING MUSIC
  • 00:42:51.110 --> 00:42:52.170
  • WITH MELISSA.
  • 00:42:52.170 --> 00:42:53.270
  • WE PLAYED SOME OF HER SONGS.
  • 00:42:53.270 --> 00:42:54.250
  • SHE'S AN AMAZING, INCREDIBLY
  • 00:42:54.250 --> 00:42:57.000
  • TALENTED PERSON.
  • 00:42:57.000 --> 00:42:57.170
  • I HAD MERYL STREEP ON MY SHOW.
  • 00:42:57.170 --> 00:43:00.110
  • I DON'T THINK ANYBODY WOULD
  • 00:43:00.110 --> 00:43:01.230
  • DOUBT THAT MERYL STREEP
  • 00:43:01.230 --> 00:43:02.250
  • AND I PROBABLY DIDN'T VOTE THE
  • 00:43:02.250 --> 00:43:05.070
  • SAME WAY.
  • 00:43:05.070 --> 00:43:05.250
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:43:05.250 --> 00:43:07.140
  • BUT WE HAD A MARVELOUS
  • 00:43:07.140 --> 00:43:08.180
  • CONVERSATION.
  • 00:43:08.180 --> 00:43:09.150
  • SHE ACTUALLY ENJOYED IT AND
  • 00:43:09.150 --> 00:43:12.050
  • TOLD HER STAFF WHEN SHE LEFT
  • 00:43:12.050 --> 00:43:13.010
  • THAT SHE DID.
  • 00:43:13.010 --> 00:43:14.130
  • AND SHE WAS A DELIGHTFUL
  • 00:43:14.130 --> 00:43:15.080
  • PERSON.
  • 00:43:15.080 --> 00:43:16.170
  • NOT A DIVA BONE IN HER BODY.
  • 00:43:16.170 --> 00:43:17.180
  • - MATT: WOW.
  • 00:43:17.180 --> 00:43:18.030
  • - MIKE: COULDN'T HAVE BEEN
  • 00:43:18.030 --> 00:43:18.230
  • MORE GRACIOUS.
  • 00:43:18.230 --> 00:43:19.150
  • I WANT THAT ATMOSPHERE.
  • 00:43:19.150 --> 00:43:20.290
  • - LAURIE: YEAH.
  • 00:43:20.290 --> 00:43:21.180
  • - MIKE: I WANNA PROVE THAT
  • 00:43:21.180 --> 00:43:22.270
  • PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT POINTS OF
  • 00:43:22.270 --> 00:43:23.240
  • VIEW CAN COME TOGETHER.
  • 00:43:23.240 --> 00:43:24.230
  • IF I BRING SOMEONE ON, IT'S NOT
  • 00:43:24.230 --> 00:43:27.020
  • ALWAYS GONNA BE TO TALK
  • 00:43:27.020 --> 00:43:27.290
  • POLITICS.
  • 00:43:27.290 --> 00:43:29.030
  • BECAUSE, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:43:29.030 --> 00:43:30.030
  • THERE'S MORE TO LIFE THAN WHAT
  • 00:43:30.030 --> 00:43:33.000
  • A PERSON'S POLITICS ARE.
  • 00:43:33.000 --> 00:43:35.000
  • SO, WHEN MERYL STREEP CAME ON,
  • 00:43:35.000 --> 00:43:36.170
  • I DIDN'T SIT THERE AND GRILL
  • 00:43:36.170 --> 00:43:37.260
  • HER ABOUT WHO SHE VOTED FOR AND
  • 00:43:37.260 --> 00:43:38.250
  • WHY.
  • 00:43:38.250 --> 00:43:40.030
  • SHE WAS IN THE MIDST OF
  • 00:43:40.030 --> 00:43:42.000
  • JUST HAVING COMPLETED THE
  • 00:43:42.000 --> 00:43:43.200
  • MOVIE "THE IRON LADY" ABOUT
  • 00:43:43.200 --> 00:43:44.250
  • MARGARET THATCHER.
  • 00:43:44.250 --> 00:43:46.220
  • I THOUGHT HER PERFORMANCE
  • 00:43:46.220 --> 00:43:47.190
  • WAS MAGNIFICENT.
  • 00:43:47.190 --> 00:43:48.060
  • - LAURIE: YES.
  • 00:43:48.060 --> 00:43:49.110
  • - MIKE: WE TALKED ABOUT HER
  • 00:43:49.110 --> 00:43:50.010
  • CAREER.
  • 00:43:50.010 --> 00:43:51.260
  • HERE'S MY POINT: WHEN YOU WATCH
  • 00:43:51.260 --> 00:43:53.040
  • THE SHOW ON TBN, I THINK PEOPLE
  • 00:43:53.040 --> 00:43:55.100
  • ARE GONNA GET TO KNOW SOME

  • WE'RE GONNA TALK TO THEM ABOUT
  • 00:44:01.090 --> 00:44:02.000
  • THINGS THAT MAYBE THEY'VE NEVER
  • 00:44:02.000 --> 00:44:02.290
  • THOUGHT ABOUT BEFORE.
  • 00:44:02.290 --> 00:44:05.000
  • WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOME MUSICAL
  • 00:44:05.000 --> 00:44:05.210
  • GUESTS ON.
  • 00:44:05.210 --> 00:44:06.040
  • THEY'RE GONNA HAVE YOU TAPPING
  • 00:44:06.040 --> 00:44:07.220
  • YOUR TOE.
  • 00:44:07.220 --> 00:44:09.130
  • YOU MAY HAVE TO MOVE THE COFFEE
  • 00:44:09.130 --> 00:44:10.050
  • TABLE OUT OF THE LIVING ROOM SO

  • [LAURIE LAUGHS]
  • 00:44:16.000 --> 00:44:17.140

  • GONNA BE A FUN AND A PLEASANT
  • 00:44:18.240 --> 00:44:21.070
