1/13/15 Thomas Schaller: Stronghold: How Republicans Captured Congress but Surrendered the White House
University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Political Science Professor and author of The Stronghold: How Republicans Captured Congress but Surrendered the White House, Thomas Schaller explains the best way to understand the modern Republican Party. Why Republicans want to have the Congress more than the Presidency. Why Republicans can govern from the House. Why this is Gingrich Republican Party not Ronald Reagan's. How and why the Republicans gerrymandered the House. Why the current Republican Party will never do outreach. Why its hard for Republicans to win the Presidency. Also understanding the right wing political racket.
On The Fun Half: Debunking the godfather of Libertarianism. Why Democrats can and should be more populist. "Terrorism Expert" Steve Emerson goes on the BBC and hilariously attempts to defend himself for his insane comments on Islam in Europe. Fox News host Jeannine Pirro goes on an insane "kill them" rant. Also your calls and IMs.
