Episode 220 Stuart Stevens, plus Charles “CJ” Johnson for CU Regent

Famed Republican ad-maker and now harsh Trump critic  Stuart Stevens joins the show. He’s a 1974 Colorado College grad and Mitt Romney’s former presidential chief strategist when Romney was the GOP nominee defeated by incumbent President Obama. 

Relive all the Colorado moments along the way, including when Mitt Romney suffered a pixie dust (glitter) attack in Denver’s Auraria complex. A CU-Denver student was the perpetrator.

We discuss Mitt Romney's dominant Denver University debate performance when he challenged President Obama and staggered the incumbent with his skill. Find out how Romney prepared. We also discuss the upcoming presidential debate.

Stuart Stevens is now with the Lincoln Project and dedicated to defeating Donald Trump and the authoritarian threat he poses. Find out how Stevens analogizes Trump's campaign to a paper bag holding water.

Stevens has authored It Was All a Lie: How the Republican Party Became Donald Trump; and The Conspiracy to End America: Five Ways My Old Party Is Driving Democracy to Autocracy, Stevens has a brilliant way of seeing things, and he’s seen the collapse of the Republican Party into dangerous Trumpism.

Stevens provides the way out with a discussion of national security Democrats. We contemplate the endorsements and nation-wide tour of Taylor Swift and George W. Bush on a tour bus containing all the Cheney ladies (Colorado College grads), driven by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan right into the swing states.

A critical election is happening on Tuesday, June 25, 2024, in Colorado, including the statewide CU Regent race featuring show favorite Charles “CJ” Johnson. Realize why ex-CU QB, CJ, would be a giant asset to Colorado and CU if elected a Regent.

It takes courage to run for office, including for CU Regent. We discuss the Father’s Day demonstration at the Greenwood Village home of Ilana Siegel, a CU Regent, targeted for being Jewish. Find out CJ’s reaction to this indecent protest.

Troubadour Dave Gunders provides a “rocking” love song provocatively titled, Not All About Love. Dave Gunders again pays tribute to the Rolling Stones who rolled through Denver again on 6/20/24. There are lessons aplenty in this fast-paced tune.
