Kamala a Moderate? Trump Says No!

Lots of mainstream media are following the cue of the New York Times, in claiming that Kamala Harris is a “pragmatic moderate”. The apparent strategy in depicting her as such is to win the support of mainstream moderate Democrats in this year’s presidential election. But will Joe Biden’s pick for his running mate be able to convince voters that she is a centrist who shares their values? Beau of the “Fifth Column” says yes. Larry Sparano has doubts, as you’ll hear in this exchange with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Trump Masking Blame for Covid-19?

Is President Trump “masking” the blame he should be taking for not emphasizing –until lately– the importance of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of Covid-19? CNN’s Erin Burnett thinks so, and says it’s ridiculous that Trump is trying to shift the blame to governors and other officials of state and local governments. Will Trump’s disregard of masks lose him the 2020 election? That’s what Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio are talking about today:

Will Virus Defeat Trump?

The media are full of reports depicting Trump in deep trouble due to the public’s perception that Trump has done too little to contain the pandemic. While that might be a big factor in the 2020 presidential election, Larry Sparano says there’s another huge issue of concern lurking in the background –and it’s an issue that could win Trump another term. Larry lays it out in this conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

No Quick Recovery

All the upbeat news following last week’s latest jobs report does not reflect. Nor does it indicate that there will be a quick recovery ahead. Economist Richard Wolff says the dire consequences of the Covid-19 shut-down will become increasingly and painfully obvious in the months ahead. Larry Sparano discusses the factors that will keep the economy depressed with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York.

 

Biden a Shoe-in? Not so Fast!

Many partisan commentators and “analysts” are crowing about new polls showing Trump far behind Biden –by as much as 14 points. But are the polls accurate, and are the “experts” interpreting them correctly? Larry Sparano says no, in this interview with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Biden Didn’t Collapse: But Did He Win Sunday’s Debate with Sanders?

Joe Biden might have just dispelled much of the increasing speculation that he is not mentally fit to be President. But even is he still has all his marbles, did he best Bernie Sanders in last night’s audience-less debate? On Target’s Larry Sparano chews that over with newsman and commentator Bryant Thomas:

 

Trump Verses Biden: Why Trump’s B.S. Goes Over With Voters!

If you analyze much of what Trump says, it’s either exaggeration or outright deception. So why do voters remain attached to the most unconventional president of recent times? On Target’s Larry Sparano says it’s because of the emotional bonding he has maintained with his supporters from the time he announced for the Presidency. Here’s Larry talking about Trump’s special talent, with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Can Sanders Redefine Who He Is?

Joe Biden’s blowout in Super Tuesday can be attributed in large part to the fear of many Democrats of putting a “radical” socialist in the White House. On Target’s Larry Sparano says Sanders must quickly redefine who he is, and what he would actually bring to the nation. Here’s Larry in discussion with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

After Super Tuesday: Trench Warfare for Bernie?

Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks news blog says now it’s trench warfare, following the huge wins for Joe Biden on Super Tuesday. Uygur says the battle to get Bernie Sanders the Democratic nomination for President is “about to get way, way uglier.” Unger says the progressives who support Biden “will not go quietly into the night”. So, would such a nasty thrust to stop Biden work? Or would it just make matters worse for Bernie? On Target’s Larry Sparano talks about that and more with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

 

 

Super Tuesday: Sanders’ Road to the White House?

Even if Bernie Sanders emerges strong from today’s Super Tuesday primaries in 14 states, does that mean he’s headed for the Democratic nomination for President? And even if it’s not denied him for a second time by party regulars, is he electable? Can he beat Trump? Economist and political commentator Robert Reich, who was secretary of labor for Bill Clinton, says yes. Reich believes that Sanders’ time has come, considering the state of the nation in 2020. On Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York discuss the reasons why:
