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.
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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
Hillary and Mike? Following the New Hampshire primary, who is in best position to get the Democratic nomination, and who has the best shot at beating Trump? That’s what On Target’s Larry Sparano is discussing today with veteran newsman and political commentator Bryant Thomas, most recently of the AP radio news bureau in Washington, D.C.
Even when and if the final Iowa Caucus results are finally tallied, there’s going to be continuing arguments about who came out on top and by how much. This, of course lessens the “bandwagon” effect that winning in Iowa and then New Hampshire often produces. Who benefits most? Maybe Biden –who would be more damaged if the Caucus app worked properly and showed him a clear loser? Here’s On Target’s Larry Sparano, talking about the process with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
With just weeks to go before the Iowa Caucus, Democratic candidates were once more largely off the mark in their quest for votes. Perhaps the strongest showing was made by Bernie Sanders. On Target’s Larry Sparano explains why to Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
