You Have Talked Throughout Your Todays Hearing
so far and in your pre-hearing Q a about how much it’s important to be a nonpartisan leader Is that correct yes Senator and so if you’re confirmed you will attempt to stay politically neutral in your decision making is that fair to say yes Senator your characterization of your views. I should say yes that’s yes so I was troubled. I have to say by this article that you wrote that Senator Portman asked you about a minute ago published by the American Political Science Association. I have it here anti-intellectualism in the modern presidency Republican populism published in June of 2007. .
Do You Consider This Piece To
be nonpartisan thank you senator for that question. I consider to be a academic article Publication of 16 17 years ago A scholarly piece yeah let’s dig into it a little bit you write. paper that to combat allegations of elitism Recent Republican presidents have adopted anti–intellectualism? How would you define anti–intellectualism Thank you senator for that question the ability to speak in very plain Common Sense terms to Americans. So you say recent Republican presidents but your case studies are Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan and then coming up. I think to to George W bush so what’s the what’s the point here I mean you say at one point Republicans tend to exhibit anti–intellectual qualities.
Democrats, On The Other Hand, Coalesce
on the intellectual tale of the Continuum. So is the point that Republicans are stupid and Democrats are intellectual yes thank you senator for that question absolutely not the point of the article is that the presidents that I featured in it have a rhetorical connection with them at the American people a rhetorical connection that you say is anti-intellectual and you you feature every two-term Republican president going back to Dwight Eisenhower yes Senator I think it’s it’s a piece on rhetoric and it is really looking at how these presidents have been successful rhetorically in their arguments interesting. It’s a piece on a rhetoric, but you attribute part of the anti–intellectualism of the Republican party too in your words, the rise of the religious right tell me about that because those voters are stupid thank you senator for that question absolutely not and if I am confirmed as archivists of the United States I look forward to welcoming all Americans to the National. Think the people who voted for Donald Trump are anti–intellectual Thank you Senator I would not make any judgment on the people who voted for President Trump or any other president. Oh, so you don’t think the people who voted for Dwight Eisenhower or Ronald Reagan or George W Bush.

They Werent Anti–Intellectual The Anti–Intellectual Rhetoric Just Appealed
to them because what what’s your theory thank you senator for that question as I said Presidents are able to speak in common sense plain terms to Americans that they understand so you characterize President Reagan as having quote less than impressive intellectual capacities. You said President Eisenhower and Bush were decidedly intellectual. You said Reagan engaged in intellectual posturing let’s just start with the first one less than imprecedent electoral capacities. So in other words, it’s dumb Thank you Senator absolutely not that was a perception and it was cited I’m. By you you were you wrote about it no Senator that was and as I said in the article That is a a perception but actually in the article because you say Reagan’s less than impressive intellectual capacities have been widely discussed that’s presented as a factual statement.
You Dont Even Cite For It This Is
on page 298. I have your article Don’t disassemble in front of me. So Reagan’s less than impressive intellectual capacities have been widely discussed. You’re not saying that he had less than that’s not your view thank you Senator. It is not my view Why did you write it thank you Senator that is not my view.
My View Is Was Focused On His
rhetorical capability that’s not what your sentence says listen. You wrote An article saying Basically the Republican voters are stupid that Republican presidents deliberately appeal to anti-intellectualism You category you you rolled it all up in this thing called Republican populism yet you’re trying to present yourself here as a nonpartisan. In fact you’re an extreme partisan and your record shows that you’re someone who has denigrated Republican presidents Every two-term Republican president. I think I think I hope I’m not leaving many out that has since the since the Second World War and their voters. In this lengthy article.
I Mean I Just Dont Understand If You
wrote it why won’t you stand behind it thank you Senator I I will stand by my long experience for over 15 years of non–partisan service. You know. This is this is not just a theoretical set of questions because as you know we have seen what happens when you have political activists. You are up for confirmation for and we are living through that as a nation right now we are living through the weaponization. The political weaponization of the National Archives.
The Political Weaponization Of The Department
of Justice. The political weaponization of the UK such that half of the people of this country cannot trust those institutions. We’re living with a president who calls half the voters of this country. Semi-fascists who have said that they are a threat to democracy. This is an elected American president who makes these outrageous outrageous statements so in that environment frankly to have you up for confirmation for this position which has become very politically charged in a way.
I Lament It Should Not Have Been But
unfortunately the art pass archivists have done what they’ve done. The UK has done what it has done. Doj has done what they have done? And here you are talking about the anti-intellectualism and frankly stupidity of American voters. I mean if that isn’t playing to type I don’t know what the world is I mean it’s basically a self–parody, how can you assure me or anybody watching this hearing the millions of Americans 75 million Americans who voted for Republican in the last election. How can you assure them that you will be truly nonpartisan given what you have said over a period of years thank you Senator I stand by my record of non–partisan service at the Congressional Research Service, the Library of Congress and at the White House Historical Association and I invite anybody to talk to the people that I have worked with for years in my non–part Artisan government service Mr chairman without objection.
