We love our listeners and we love hearing from you! So we decided to ask what questions you’d like us to address. Today we start with a great hypothetical. If conservatives won control of the House, Senate, and White House (with a supermajority in the Senate), which president from the past 100 years would we want setting the agenda and what would we want him to focus on. Then they take on a question asking what margin Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis needs to win re-election by to have real momentum for a 2024 presidential bad – and how damaging would it be for him if Sen. Marco Rubio wins by a wider margin? Finally, they tackle a Terminator-themed political question in a crazy but intriguing final martini.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America lay out the extent of the devastation in Southeast Texas but also salute the first responders and big-hearted citizens who are rescuing their neighbors. They also unload on Antifa, as the leftist mob attacks people in Berkeley and chants, “No Trump. No Wall. No USA at All.” And they discuss the likely circus car of endless 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls that will make the 17 GOP candidates in 2016 seems like a reasonable number.
Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Mike Pence for consistently articulating conservative principles in Tuesday’s vice presidential debate. They’re unimpressed with moderator Elaine Quijano for failing to stop Tim Kaine’s incessant interruptions and tons of cross talk. And they slam Kaine’s overall performance and question the Democrats’ strategy in the debate.
Greg Corombos of Radio America and Ian Tuttle of National Review preview the vice presidential debate and point out these candidates are better than the presidential nominees and that we’ll actually see one conservative on stage this fall. They also groan that conservatives are largely depending on Julian Assange to defeat Hillary Clinton. And they discuss the latest invasion of political correctness into the U.S. military.
Ron Paul has stopped actively campaigning and Governor Romney has secured enough GOP delegates to win the Republican nomination. Radio America’s Vanessa Oblinger discusses the challenges and opportunities Romney faces to win over Paul supporters. Brian Doherty, the senior editor at Reason Magazine and author of “Ron Paul’s Revolution” explains why Romney may have a very difficult time winning over those voters. Gus Portela of the College Republican National Committee tells us why he thinks libertarians will naturally gravitate to the GOP nominee.
