Sept 9, 1985 President Ronald Reagan on Apartheid. I respect and share the goals that have motivated many in Congress to send a message of US concern about apartheid therefore I m signing today, an executive order that will put in place a set of measures designed and aimed against the machinery of apartheid without indiscriminately punishing the people who are victims of that system. Measures that will disassociate the Untied States from apartheid but associate us positively with peaceful change.

Sept 11, 1985. Senator Bob Dole (R - Kansas) I believe that not understanding the eleventh hour conversion of the President, that it was something very meaningful. It certainly sends a strong signal to the South African government. The President is the only one who is elected nation-wide and in my view his voice is much more important than any of ours.

Kevin Phillips, Political Analyst. Usually in a President s first term when he goes to Congress and says I want A and B and C, he gets a lot of it because especially when it is a President who has just kicked the other party out of the White House. People up on the Hill have a sense of this is the man who just got his ticket punched. And it doesn t work that way at all in a second term. What you often get is a President elected by a landslide majority who gets too big for his britches. You have that situation with Franklin D Roosevelt and the court packing in 1937. Lyndon Johnson with the war on the great society in 1966-66. And they go too far. And Congress emerges as the voice of the people. They re the ones who have their finger on the public pulse, not the President.

Senator Bob Dole (R - Kansas) I think for a while at least, there will probably not be too many Republican Senators listening to pleas in the White House on anything. Reporter, What do you mean by that? Would you elaborate on that please? Senator Bob Dole (R - Kansas) I think there s a great deal of frustration with the Republican Senators. We ll do our best to keep them on board, maybe the long recess we ll have will help.

Kevin Phillips, Political Analyst. (I think it s fair to say that we re almost getting to the point where) there is a White House Republican Party and a Capitol Hill Republican Party. And I think there is a great cleavage opening up between the White House on one hand - and they re still captivated by the 1984 mandate - and the Senate and House Republicans on the other hand who ve been back to the grass roots and know what the people think.

Kevin Phillips, Political Analyst. (1986 has to be a major concern to the Republicans because you ve got the overlap of) the six year race, the pattern of the voters getting sort of antsy about the party in the White House and costing it Congressional seats especially in the Senate, six years into a President s sequence. And of course the Republicans are fighting to hold what s pretty thin by historical standards, control of the Senate. So really the likelihood at this point, if history follows its patterns, is that they would lose control and I think they re mindful, and correctly so, that independent postures are the best bet - if you are talking about a reaction against the White House, to avoid that reaction. So you ve got all kinds of Republican Senators who are trying to be independent and I think that will spread.

Hodding Carter. What role will the Democrats play in all of this? Kevin Phillips, Political Analyst. I think the Democrats are very important to the whole dilemma of the Republican Party because the Democrats, although they have an awful lot of trouble reassembling a Presidential coalition every 4 years, are awfully good at knocking off Republicans in mid-term elections when economics becomes the crux of it all. And as a result they have been very able to take advantage of issues like Social Security, farm problems and trade - all of which has put the Republicans really right back in the gun sites on those issues. And the Democrats are equipped to do that. So I think the Democrats have played a very major catalytic role here. In focusing Republican divisions.

Hodding Carter. Do you think the Senate Republicans are still smarting over the differences they had with the White House over the budget resolution? Kevin Phillips, Political Analyst. There is no doubt that you ve got a gap between the White House and the Senate on fiscal policy, on trade policy, really on a whole lot of things. And what I think they have to do with is that the White House is still pursing a kind of let s get the government out of the economy - small government view of the world and the politicians in the Republican Party are saying Hey, wait. People want Social Security. They want the government to be involved in trade and protecting jobs. They want help for farmers. They don t want these programs cut. So there s a real gap there. It s not just the budget, not just fiscal policy. It s the role of the government in the economy - almost what could be called the conservative welfare state, as it were - how government programs helped so many of these constituencies. So you ve just got a fundamental cleavage again between the White House and the hands on politicians.

Senator Bob Dole (R - Kansas) Victory in a sense, that I believe that not understanding the eleventh hour conversion of the President, that it was something very meaningful. It certainly sends a strong signal to the South African government. The President, let s face it, is the only one who is elected nation-wide and in my view his voice is much more important than any of ours. Reporter Wouldn t it help Republicans in an election year if the President showed a little more enthusiasm on an issue like this? Senator Bob Dole (R - Kansas). Well there are a number of issues where probably that would be helpful - agriculture, trade, this issue. But I think we have to understand the President, in this instance, takes sort of a world view. We take a narrow view. In agriculture or trade, he takes a national view. We take state views. I don t know whether I d like to have the President go with me to the Kansas State Fair this weekend, but I think he s tied up.
