Recapping the Crazy Week In Politics
It’s been a strange week in politics...just ask President Barack Obama.
Speaking to a Colorado crowd the day after the first presidential debate he said, "When I got onto the stage, I met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be Mitt Romney."
Yeah, the guy he met in Denver seemed different somehow...well prepped, energetic and ready to steamroll the helpless moderator, Jim Lehrer.
Now both the President and his Republican challenger are back on the trail, trying to spin the first debate. WNYC reporter Anna Sale was there - and she tells us what voters are really thinking.
We’ll also check in with Andrea Seabrook - the former NPR congressional correspondent now has her own podcast called Decode DC and she’s been going to school on the “science” behind party politics.
And the Connecticut Mirror’s Mark Pazniokas joins us to talk about a Senate campaign that’s still close - and increasingly all about the ads. The Wesleyan Media Project studies this issue and tells us that there are more ads than ever before in this election cycle.
