Constitutional Sound Bites – David Shestokas
David was in Cleveland and attended an event with Mitch McConnell – interesting comment regarding Merrick Garland’s “nomination.”
David also highly recommended this book that he’s reading:
Our Sound Bites for the day covered the Preamble and the critical phrase “We the people of the UNITED States…”

Listen to the isolated Sound Bite segment:
HausGuest – Howard Schweitzer
Howard was on the line FROM Cleveland, where he’s taking in the show/dumpster fire/festivities/celebration/funeral.
Here is a portion of Howard’s VERY impressive bio:
Howard Schweitzer is the managing partner of Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies and served in high-level political and executive appointments in the Bush, Clinton and Obama administrations, including a pivotal role in the federal government’s financial crisis response as Chief Operating Officer of the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Howard counsels clients regarding a variety of regulatory and policy issues before the U.S. government and represents clients before U.S. Executive Branch agencies and Congress.
Basically, he helps clients negotiate through the layers of government and bureaucracy. This experience perfectly positions him to have insights on the political scene that are totally different from those of us on the outside.
We talked about the convention itself and he noted that it’s a VERY different event than any he’s attended previously. That, of course, is due to a nominee who is VERY different than any previously seen.
Howard published an article in The Daily Caller two months ago about the HUGE distinction between campaigning and governing – with some warnings for Trump. His opinion hasn’t changed at all. He also commented further on the reception Trump is getting from Wall Street, following up on some thoughts given in a recent interview with The Washington Post.
He was SUCH a good and interesting guest, that I totally lost track of time and went a couple of minutes over time!
