3:08 pm
things that he said. he finally gets us completed. especially those who are veterans of world war ii and those who are in spirit today. they could sue the commander-in-chief. we finally got that down as well with bob's help. jon: i am told you to like to play pranks on one another. >> those were all classified of course. but the staff back then, it wasn't the way it is now with security. and for some reason everybody thought that i could do what bob dole voice. i would pick up the phone and call his top gun and say where is my speech and they would desperately look for the speech and of course they found out it was not there and i would not accept any dole staff calls in

[inaudible] do solemnly swear, sorry, wrong
3:10 pm
speech. he really did have quite a sense of humor but he was a guy who could work across the aisle. these days that doesn't seem to be very popular. do we need more bob dole's in the u.s. senate? >> of course we do. that is a problem that we have today. goes back to world war i and a lot of ideology we represent the organization that we have of the country. remember the clip that he made very typical of bob sieber. he had a quick wit. i remember he did a lot of bios on people and they said bob who had an acerbic sense of humor. i had the first district, roberts must be underwater, the
3:11 pm
worst thing that you can do on the allegation where everybody was there to be right after dole or right before him. if you are before him and try to be a little bit funny, all my goodness. if you were after him you didn't know what to do. he could really break the balloon where we just can't get anything done and his wit and humor. i tried to animate that. i got a lot more done in the house when people thought that bob dole was everything that i was for and i sure as heck did not tell him that. i got a lot more done because i knew bob because of his leadership. a lot of stories about that. jon: his campaign as a nominee as republican party in 1996 was
3:12 pm
the first presidential race we covered at fox news channel. we launched a month or two before the election in 1996 and i will always remember that in the day he retired from the senate. >> he was president of iowa. >> that is true it was great to talk to you. pray for more on this tennessee republican senator harsha blackburn, your memories of the late senator dole. >> i do extend all sympathy to mrs. dole, senator dole and bob dole had an impact on our nation. i love hearing the stories about him and ms. schumer, that is something that people will remember and also the work that he did and senator elizabeth dole also for our nation's
3:13 pm
veterans. in one of the things when you talk about bob dole in his leadership is asked to have the opportunity to be attached or some way volunteer for the presidential race and 96. it was his desire to see people do things that were bigger than themselves. much of that came from his desire from publix service to get back and defend freedom and to make certain that we remain in the home of the brave in his commitment to that throughout his military career and his career in public service in the senate. >> he mentioned his role, a very good friend who took his family to see the memorial and lo and behold sitting there at the entrance in his wheelchair, this is some years ago was bob dole. he was out of office, he had
3:14 pm
campaign for the presidency and he would spend many of his days as ice understand the world war ii memorial and greeting fellow world war ii veterans who came to see it. not for glory, he felt like it was the right thing to do. >> he felt like it was the right thing to do. he will be remembered for, he fully understood and appreciated completely what ronald reagan would always say in remind people of freedom. we don't pass on in the bloodstream. every single generation has to fight for it. indicate this free and pass it on. he relished being able to do that. into love this country and fight for freedom and defendant.
3:15 pm
period just to be so grateful to have the opportunity to defend this nation and defend freedom. jon: he bore the scars throughout the rest of his life but he never seemed bitter about that experience. i want to change gears, you mention fighting. one of the things that americans are fighting right now is inflation. i want to redo an eye-catching headline, this from cnn business. why inflation can be good for everyday americans and bad for rich people. it goes on to say inflation can be a good thing for many working americans especially those with a 30 year mortgage because wages are going up which not only empowers workers but gives them more money to pay down debt. plus in the case of a mortgage your monthly payment will be the same but your house will increase in value. what do you think about the
3:16 pm
logic? >> that is the washington crisis logic. 70 at church said to me today people in d.c. just don't get it. they were so frustrated with inflation and the price of the pump with what their pain at the grocery store. with all of the different increases that they're seeing. at the end of the month you have less money. you dollar doesn't go as far. that's what happens with inflation and this is the same logic, the left is trying to tell you that inflation is good for you. higher prices are good for you and that's the same logic they would use when they say the tax cuts and job acts are bad for you. we wanted to make certain that everybody has more money and take-home pay and that the dollar went further.
3:17 pm
jon: let's take a look at the statistics, bureau of labor statistics. the consumer price index takes are up 24% in october 2021 versus october 2020. there up almost 12%, chicken up almost 9% and baby food up 7.9%. it is pretty hard to go to the grocery store and not notice some of the prices. >> that is right, going to the grocery store and buy christmas presents. everything that you're doing for the holidays, the transportation to get to and from. everything is costing more. how in heaven's names, cnn thinks this is good for people. and wanting to pull a straw and say if you have a 30 year mortgage and your wages are going up but still you have less money and then you know that
3:18 pm
cost is going up, you know that your home insurance is going up. this is more of the out of touch liberal talk. jon: very quickly or on the armed services committee. we have obtained satellite photo that shows the russian military buildup along the border with ukraine. how concerned are you that an invasion of ukraine by russia is imminent and what should our response be? >> our response should be something to say you're not going to do this. of course during the obama years when russia went into crimea. you had barack obama sending blankets and meals ready-to-eat. when donald trump when and what did he do. he sent them artillery and what they needed to defend themselves. you have anthony blinken just having met and all they talked
3:19 pm
about was sanctions. the thing is putin knows that joe biden is a very weak leader. he knows that joe biden is going to do nothing. he knows joe biden will let him keep pushing. of course we know russia and their partners in the axis of evil china, iran and north korea do not wish us well. there are adversaries and we need to be very firm in saying you cannot, crusher border and standing there and helping ukraine. jon: the pictures that we obtained have an ominous look to them will continue to watch the story at the border. marsha blackburn republican from tennessee, thank you. one final note on bob dole. in 2013 when chris wallace asked him how he would like to be thought of.
3:20 pm
>> how would you like to be remembered? what do you want them to put on your tombstone. >> veteran who gave his morals for his country. it's true and i try to make the most of it. and i think i did. no one can deliver your mom's homemade short ribs. that's why instacart helps deliver the ingredients. and you add the love.
