Liberal Bill Scher and conservative Matt Lewis meet in the rancor-free DMZ to hash out the week’s political events.
This week on The DMZ: Matt responds to the swipe he took from Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin. Is it a new day for gay conservatives? Did Sen. Marco Rubio help his VP campaign with his foreign policy speech? Do Mitt Romney and the GOP face a pop culture gap with President Obama, and if so, are they able to fix it?
This week on The DMZ, Matt says that Romney is already doing a better job than McCain of taking the fight to Obama. Bill thinks that Romney has learned something from Howard Dean about being a tough-talking moderate. Matt argues that Obama is stirring up class envy to get re-elected, but Bill thinks that attacking Romney for being financially out of touch is fair game. Plus, The DMZ is accepting submissions for a theme song!
On The DMZ: Does Santorum have a political future? Will Obama run a campaign of hope or hypocrisy? Why did Obama’s 2008 post-partisan rhetoric never become reality? Matt and Bill also debate the kind of anti-Obama narrative Romney will run on and whether this will actually be an intensely negative campaign.
On a Special Easter Edition of The DMZ: With Romney pulling away, the GOP empire has struck back. Will the general election campaign be about ideas, or a clash of demagoguery? Matt asks if Christianity and evolution can coexist. Bill explains why many liberals fear theocratic impulses coming from the right. But might conservatives be moving towards a reconciliation between science and religion?
