"Sonderman Pundit I'm supposed to be quick on the take quick with the analysis, the context and the implications. Well, with the debate having just ended he wrote last night I've done my best to rise to the occasion how however he says in honest disclosure I need to say that I am almost shaken. Editorial side weren't we all? For. Perhaps, the first time I am identifying writes, MR, Sonderman with anyone who has struggled with PT. S. D., simply put in endless years of political engagement an observation commentary. I have never witnessed anything close to what we have just experienced. Of course referencing last night's first presidential debate many years from now historians were record September twenty-ninth Twenty twenty as the date, the American political system bottomed out continues. Eric. Sanderson this was not a presidential debate. It was a juvenile embarrassment ironically featuring three white men well into their seventies Chris Wallace. Clocked in as the youngster at a spry seventy, two years of age. Of course, it is a mistake to assign equal responsibility for this hot mess. So let's take the three actors in turn what say you. Wallace. Remarkable for the debate that his goal was not to make himself part of the story. That's a worthy ambition for a moderator. Yet despite his best intentions, he became a significant storyline for his inability to control the entire mess. That said I would not have wished this assignment on Jim Lehrer or Walter Cronkite or even Solomon. Donald Trump says Eric Sonderman showed up determined to do as best Mike Tyson imitation. Is. A Predator by instinct but he turned that bullying effect up to full throttle thinking well, maybe he could break down his supposedly feeble opponent. Now here's where Eric Sandra and I diverge says Sonderman, no doubt his vase lapped it up. Yes I am a deplorable yes. Despite the performance turned in by both candidates last night I will vote to reelect president trump so i. suppose I could be described as part of his base. I didn't lap it up. Now says Sonderman. It's a very open question as to whether anyone beyond that base was impressed by his performance. You remember in our discussion with the political strategists, Jay Townsend himself a presidential debate coach the point came up both candidates. The incumbent president and Joe Biden needed to remember who they were talking to. They were talking to the three. To five percent of undecided voters in seventy nine swing states. But instead of talking to them. Both were guilty of talking at them. Meanwhile Says Sonderman brings us, Joe. Biden he'll never go down as a great orator debater unlikely to be asked to coach high school debate team. Well, of course, because I don't know maybe I missed that day in debate where. Name calling is an acceptable debate technique. No amount of preparation could have readied him for this particular lion's den. For sure he had his lapses he let more than one software softball go by but concludes Mr Sonderman. As for the two remaining presidential debates. There has to be some question marks about them in the immediate aftermath of this discomforting humiliating evening. Pity. The two remaining moderators Steve SCULLY C-SPAN NBC's Kristen Welker Sonderman I wouldn't blame either for soon developing a very suspicious sore throat. Oh, by the way, his friend wrote this is beyond awful. It's embarrassing to watch with the kids I had to turn it off I can't let them think that this is an acceptable way for a leader to behave. Concludes Eric, Sundermann what she said. Here. Mornings with Gail Weekdays six to nine in.

"It's a pretty sickening sight as we are watching a monument since statues across the country being toppled by those who are taking advantage of a very incendiary time in America, begs the question who should make that decision about the fate of monuments, not to mention books and television programmes and airports Oh. Yeah, did you hear this one now in orange? County. They want to rename John Wayne Airport this because well reportedly. John Wayne once said I don't believe or I. Believe in White Supremacy, apparently this interview, just a resurface, but once again are we judging the passed through the prism of today's sensitivities and values? We've learned as a country I'm not making excuses for anybody. Okay, that's not it but again America an idea and don't. We learn more from our failures than we do our successes nine, seven, three, five, three, thirteen, ten, eight, seven, seven, three, five, three, thirteen ten. Drop me a text at three one nine nine six pull George. Orwell quote you're going to hear lot of George Orwell in the coming weeks. Because well, the bottom line is this. The man was frighteningly prescient. Thing about this. He who controls the past controls the future, he who controls the present controls the past. So, who is in control? As, we're watching. Hooligans Destroy Public Property. You tell me. Because we are in this effort to destroy that which makes us uncomfortable. and. Yes, part of this nation's past were indeed ugly. So who has control who is in control and who should make the decision as to the fate of some of those offensive of iconic images of our past I say icon ACC because not to lapse into crochet. Don't we run the risk by destroying our past the images of our past? Don't we run the risk of forgetting our past and repeating it in the future? Eric Sonderman is a political commentator of for Colorado politics an interesting piece that I wanted to share with you. Headline Kinda says it all renounce. Don't erase are ugly past. So, what do we keep? And, what do we discard? Says Sandra, minutes questioned the faces anyone who has ever undertaken a rigorous room by room house cleaning. He's not minimizing the subject. He's just setting up a comparison here. Now the question that faces our country on a far broader scale at this moment of cultural and historical, cleansing to call this a cultural revolution might be a tad strong, but it's not wholly an error fueled by understandable, even overdue outrage further propelled by a heavy dose of division partisanship. America finds itself in the midst of a deeper awakening to some of the ugliest pages of its history, an honest taking stock right. Sonderman should be a healthy healing enterprise. Editorial side it seems now that it's anything but. Sonderman willing to let it play out, says time will tell whether that positive construct turns out to be the case whether discretion and thoughtfulness foremost, or whether instinctive resentment, and the so-called madness of crowds rule the day mob rule. Whether this is a thorough, scour and rinse or And indiscriminate and revisionist purge. Twentieth century giant Winston Churchill. Churchill's statue also in jeopardy as part of this upheaval. Winston Churchill is credited with something. That really just cuts to the chase. History is written by the victors. Indeed, that is the case, but if the spirit is willing, it can be made true in degrees rather than absolutes. The United States is not mouse China or Soviet Russia or a host of other authoritarian societies where there is but one officially sanctioned version of historical truth and values. Part of America's unique history has been its charity toward those defeated and vanquished think of reconstruction of the south, following the civil war, and the Marshall Plan to rebuild at substantial cost, a devastated Europe in the aftermath of World War Two. Might a similar generosity evidence itself in this rewrite and purification of our historical records and tell you this riddle me this. Why does that phrase give me chills? Rewrite and purification of historical records. While, it would seem preferable to do it out of resident consensus or under the threat of civic unrest, well says Sonderman. There's no heartburn, my part at the idea of renaming denver-stapleton neighborhood, why honor a reprobate clan member who governed Denver into the middle part of the last century however. It is a slippery slope now, isn't it? Because once stapleton is replaced with the new moniker. Where did the social combatants head next? George Washington was an unapologetic slave owner. Does that very fact override his vast contributions to our country's birth and foundation. About Thomas Jefferson. Is the name of Washington Park also up for grabs. What about Jefferson County? My question to you is. Where does the cleansing the purging stop? Sandra knackers that point. Where do you draw the line? What stays and what goes and what is the criteria for making those determinations and who indeed gets to make those decisions based on what? Perhaps that standard should seriously account for the context and ethos of the time in which the individual lived. Each of us should be glad to be judged by the mores of.

"Beth Sussman. All loss to their challengers, who were more progressive. So what drove voters to make those changes. Let's get the issues with political analyst, Eric Sonderman. Thanks for coming on aarc. Absolutely april. Yeah. I mentioned progressive candidates are all these folks would you say? Anti-growth. I think they're certainly on that end of, of the political spectrum, and I think their candidacies were propelled by that kind of anti-growth anti fitting hall, anti-incumbent sentiments, Eric, you think these people actually bring solutions to some of those issues that they don't like or they, they're just to block anything, that's coming forward growth wise. I think time we'll have to tell on that one. Marty at I don't know that all three of the newcomers actually five newcomers, including two elected, and open district. I don't know that they'll act as a uniform block. But I do think it will be very different city hall that Michael Hancock will be presiding over. Yeah. Does that make it really difficult for him? It certainly is a challenge. I mean he bucked the trend this very much of an anti-incumbent anti city all way election that he managed to survive and survived handily simply because of the throwaway of the adverts. The negative advertising he was able to throw at it. Also some of the flaws. Up his opponent Duda, perhaps, her political inexperience nothing else. But he he's the one buck the trend that the other the newbies on city council. Arbitrend Michael Hancock is the -ception to that way. Erika's trend going orders is maybe just a one off in the current state that we're in though, again, you'll have to wait and see for years from now and we will bear due to term limitation if nothing else, but I think this certainly sets the stage and sets the political context for these next four years than in all likelihood for that election twenty twenty three I said that Albus Brooks, maybe tongue in cheek was the mayor's era. I'm certainly not the first person to say that what do you think happens to him? Does he work for mayor Hancock? And then maybe try to rise to that level. But, you know, I don't think we heard the last albums Brooks would not surprise me to see him go inside that administration. I suspect those are. Discussions dole for the weeks, weeks ahead. I don't know that Albert Brooks political Chris finish. But it certainly took a very, very hard and far pick, and it's going to be hard for him to rebound from that one and restoring south as a as a high profile mayoral candidate political analyst, Eric Sundermann. Thank you, Eric. Absolutely nine. Twenty five money news with Pat a little reading for America. Yeah.

First quarter labor costs are down a lot more than analysts were expecting labor costs across the US economy fell by one point six percent. That's double the decline experts. Broadcasting productivity is up three point four percent in the quarter. Well ahead of the one point nine percent increase the previous quarter right now on Wall Street, stocks are up the Dow's up eighty five points. Nasdaq is up about a point and the s. P is up seven.

He climbed the company retaliated against him because he cooperated with the government investigation into Chrysler sales. Reporting big claims to punish him Chrysler cut his pay by nearly two million dollars. Last year.

"March rather and ones that, that are probably damaging Jamie. Gillis is still rather undefined for most voters voters are just starting to get to know her for a politician has been around for a long time. They voters have much more context in which to put a gap like that. But when you're just coming onto the scene stuff like that. It's even more damaging. I'm wondering for the race in this is kind of like, when you have somebody possession is nine tenths of the law with the mayor is the incumbent is harder to unseat the incumbent. So Jamie Gillis a lot more work to do than say the mayor does probably so Marty probably. So you're always, you know, you're always more inclined to the devil, you know than devil. You don't know change is hard changes difficult, but yet, sixty two percent of the voters in that first election voted for change, or at least expressed an openness to change and then Jamie Gillis went out and got the endorsement from her two leading rivals. But this is definitely a town that. That it, it least flirting with the idea change. Whether they're ultimately pulled that trigger remains to be seen the numbers could be there. If the voters turn out, what do we know about turn out in a run-off compared to the original election typically, it goes up because the race, engages now have a binary choice, either Smith or Jones in this case handcock, or Gillis, and, and these races tend to engage? Whether you talking back to Hickenlooper, even Federico. Yeah, Wellington Webb and others. I'm not sure it's going up here or not. I'm not sure either one of these candidates has completely captured the city political consultant, Eric Sonderman. Thank you. We appreciate it anytime. Good to have him, on remember in less than two weeks, June fourth big election day, ballots, drop nine.
