What that Iowa Farmer Should have Asked Biden

Who won the Iowa debate between Joe Biden and a retired farmer? The farmer did. But he could have won it even more decisively if he confronted Biden with some well-crafted questions. Since no one has done that,  including reporters, On-Target’s Larry Sparano lays out what Biden should have been asked about his son’s profiteering in Ukraine.

Biden’s Gaffes: Will They Sink His Candidacy?

Joe Biden’s continuing gaffes and misstatements are being closely watched and prominently presented by the media..  He created a string of troubling quotes during his recent campaign swing through Iowa. The most serious of them, perhaps, was his assertion that as Vice-President, he met with  students following the  Parkland school shooting massacre.  But although he did meet with the students, he actually left office more than a year before. Add that perceived gaffe to previous stumbles and bumbles, and it again raises questions of whether Biden is up to the job.  We begin with short clips of past gaffes, and then you’ll hear On-Target’s Larry Sparano discuss the implications of it all with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Biden and Iowa: A Barometer of What?

19 candidates, not including Joe Biden swarmed through Iowa this past weekend, looking for support among voters who will cast ballots for President in the Iowa caucus   –that’s the first-in-the-nation selection of preference for president, and it takes place even before New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. So, support there is important for any person who wants to become the next Commander-in-Chief.  But polls show that support for Biden in slipping among Iowa voters, down some five to ten percent.  And the same slippage is being seen nationally.  And most surprising, perhaps, are polls showing that the most important attribute voters are seeking in a candidate is someone who can beat Trump.  They consider that more important than a candidate that shares their values. And at this point at least, the perception among voters is that Biden is that candidate.  But will he remain the best bet as we move toward the 2020 presidential election?  That’s what On-Target’s Larry Sparano discussed today with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
