Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – The question that Michael raises in terms of with Rand Paul endorsing Mitch McConnell for reelection in Kentucky, we do have the conflict that arises and the question in terms of: Do we want politicians that we elect to work within the inside political gamesmanship of DC? Is that what Senator Paul is doing? Or is that viewed as a capitulation of their ideals because they are then becoming a part of the problem? Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: Michael in North Carolina, you’re next. How you doing?
Caller Michael: Good morning, Michael.
Mike: Yes, sir.
Caller Michael: I think I’m going to take you to the conservative woodshed this morning. If you’ll give me just a minute, I’ll say what I was going to say, then I’m going to ask a question. Before your head explodes, I have one more statement to make and then I’ll get out of your way.
Mike: Am I supposed to be excited about this prospect here, my head exploding, being taken to the woodshed and being beaten like a child who has earned discipline? Am I supposed to be happy about this?
Caller Michael: Let’s start by saying I’m a huge fan. I’ve been listening to you for a long time. I’ll make this as quick as possible.
Caller Michael: I think I heard this morning that you don’t have a problem with Ted Cruz’s voting record. Am I correct?
Mike: That’s what I said. Well, for the most part, not completely but for the most part.
Caller Michael: I think the problems you and AG have is his senatorial decorum, his delivery. We’ll agree on that, right?
Mike: X gets the square. Go ahead.
Caller Michael: I was listening to David Webb about six weeks ago. I heard him say something — well, to start with, I don’t think it’s a leap to put you in the Ron / Rand Paul camp. I was listening to David Webb and he said, and I didn’t hear Rand Paul say it, but he said that Rand Paul had endorsed Mitch McConnell. Michael, if that’s true — to start with, I wonder, is your criticism of Ted Cruz coming from your heart or your head? Is that a fair question?
Mike: Michael, really, in all seriousness, I really do not need nor do I care to discuss the fountain from which my criticism of Ted Cruz comes from. You didn’t ask me where my criticism for Nancy Pelosi came from. You don’t care. You didn’t ask me where my criticism for Barack Obama came from because you don’t care. You only want to know about the golden boy Ted Cruz. I’m going to decline the question because I think it’s immaterial and irrelevant. What difference does it make?
Caller Michael: That’s fair enough. I will say, Michael, that we have very few candidates to choose from.
Mike: What’s with this “we” business again? Here we go with the “we.” Who’s “we”? We, Republicans, just ahead and say it, Republicans, the GOP.
