Sep 17: The GOP Strikes Back
Sep 16th, 2011 by Sam

The Samantha Clemens Show

On the show:

Has the entire Republican Party turned to the dark side? Have all the moderate conservatives been banished to Tataouine to work on moisture farms? 

Is Dick Cheney really Barack Obama’s Father? (Okay, maybe I took Star Wars theme a little too far this time ;) )

Join Samantha Clemens as she welcomes former Republican Party officer Michael Stafford as the two discuss the direction of the GOP in 2011. Can the party be taken back from the extremists? Tune in and find out!

 

Michael Stafford earned his Juris Doctorate from Duke University School of Law in 2003 and practices law in Wilmington, Delaware. He is a former Republican Party officer and is a nationally syndicated political columnist through Cagle Cartoons. His writing has been featured on numerous blogs including FrumForum, The Moderate Voice, and The Cagle Post. He is also the author of “An Upward Calling: Politics for the common good” published in June, 2011.  The book is a call to action for a new politics based on solidarity, civic virtue, and advancing the common good.  Mike remains active in politics as the Delaware Coordinator for Republicans for Environmental Protection (REP) and received REP’s Theodore Roosevelt Grassroots Leadership Award for 2011.

Mar 26: Spanking is to Republicans as Time-outs are to Democrats

Guest:

Kevin B Smith, Professor of Political Science, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Are your political views shaped by your environment?  Do you come to your beliefs after long, careful, thoughtful evaluation?  Or, does our personality drive our political beliefs?  And, what creates that basic personality?

This has been in the news lately:

Nicholas Kristof writes: “…some humans are particularly alert to threats, particularly primed to feel vulnerable and perceive danger. Those people are more likely to be conservatives.  Our Politics May Be All in Our Head

See, they think the world is a very scary place!  Well, they might be right at least some of the time.  But, does that mean you can never leave your zip code??

We’ll get the low-down with Dr. Smith who has spent most of the past decade studying the biological basis of political attitudes and behavior. With John R. Hibbing, he co-directs the Political Physiology Lab at Nebraska, and has helped pioneer the use of techniques from psychophysiology, behavioral genetics, neuroscience and cognitive psychology to study political temperament.

Welcome!
