Backbone Radio with Matt Dunn

Backbone Radio - Oct. 21, 2012

October 21, 2012

Tune in Sunday night to KNUS AM 710 from 5 to 8 pm for Backbone Radio. Matt Dunn and Krista Kafer will hit the airwaves with fresh commentary on all things political and cultural.

We’ve got two great guests. We’ll interview the distinguished historian Walter R. Borneman, author of the recent The Admirals: Nimitz, Halsey, Leahy and King — The Five Star Admirals Who Won the War At Sea. Our discussion will focus on the character and leadership qualities of these legendary individuals. We’ll also talk with University of Colorado Professor Michael Berry, co-author of the recently published research predicting a Romney win.

With 16 days unto election, things really couldn’t be more exciting — or more encouraging for Mitt Romney. Now enjoying a small lead in the polls, and even a slight lead in estimates of the electoral map, the GOP is feeling hopeful but not quite confident.

The empire is striking back, however, with vicious ads accusing Republican candidates of being pro-cancer, anti-women, and haters of the poor. Will the unprecedented level of government welfare and an emergence of an entitled citizenry make the election a foregone conclusion for the Left as a recent WSJ editorial suggests? Which way is the wind blowing?

Now more than ever, Colorado remains crucial for both candidates. As we witness ad after ad, and appearance after appearance, it’s time to step back and take a look at the grassroots realities here in the Centennial State. The fate of the nation may rest upon the suburbs of Arapahoe and Jefferson counties.

We’ll review the past three debates and we’ll offer our advice on “foreign policy” pursuant to tomorrow night’s final presidential debate. Here’s a hint: It’s time for Romney to set the record straight on Obama’s sub-optimal Libyan fiasco, and also offer some real Republican contrast with the old, often unhelpful policies of George W. Bush. Barring a surprise cameo intervention from Candy Crowley, these tasks should be more than manageable for the challenger.

Plus, we’ll discuss why Barbara Streisand and Bruce Springsteen are stepping it up for Obama, the death of Newsweek and why the socialists in France are trying to ban “homework” in French public schools.

We invite your calls at 303-696-1971. Listen live on 710am KNUS in Denver -Metro, or 1460am KZNT in Colorado Springs and also iHeartRADIO on your mobile device. Politics, culture and controversy — plus some groovy bumper music. Backbone Radio, the higher ground in Colorado talk radio.
