We put the finishing touches on yesterday's discussion about the Republican National Convention, which closes today in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Reviewing some of the major events leading up to and occurring during the RNC, did President Donald Trump orchestrate a coup, seizing leadership and control of the GOP -- and doing so without much opposition?

Does Trump see the Republican Party as a perfect addition to his diverse and strategic collection of real estate properties and business enterprises?

R.I.P., GOP! Has Trump Pulled A Bloodless Coup?

When the Republican National Convention closes on Aug. 27 in Charlotte, N.C., President Donald Trump and several of his minions will probably retreat to a closed-off, private room way down the hall and break out the champagne (ginger beer for him?). 

They've done it, they'll tell each other. They've pulled it off. The party they hijacked is about to be rebranded and born again.

A too-far-out-there scenario?We'll discuss.

Day 2 at the RNC: Many high-profile, dyed-in-the wool Republicans are dumping Trump and finding welcome mats at the Democrats' door. Will this trend continue?

Progressives don't seem interested in forging common ground with other parties on Election 2020 issues. Why not?

No racism within the party, Trump's spokesfolk say, and they've dragged out two prminent black Republicans to  "prove" it.

The Republican National Convention begins today in Charlotte, N.C., and ends Aug. 27. Like the Democratic convention (Aug. 17 - 20 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin), the Republican party faithful will showcase their high-profile candidates running this election year and make the case to voters to keep the party in power for the next four years.

Leid Stories asks listeners to decipher the political mood as the parties gear up for battle. Are voters excited about Election 2020, or are other matters commanding their attention?

>> They were mildly miffed--not nearly as angry and outraged as their base is known to be about Donald Trump and his errant administration. How could such media-smart and -savvy people miss the mark so badly with their messaging?

 

Leid Stories looks at Day 1 coverage of the 2020  Democratic National Convention that failed at a really important  mission.

>> House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has summoned her troops back to Washington for a must-win fight that President Trump started--and seemed to be winning--all by himself after the Democrats went back home on recess.

Whatever allegedly was done by Trump and his minions to tinker with the U.S. Postal Service's mail delivery systems and procedures ahead of the general election will now be investigated for possible fraud. Fireworks guaranteed.

>> The Biden/Harris ticket is strengthening its appeal, even as former President Barack Obama reportedly is confiding in political insiders his fear that the gaffe-prone Biden might screw things up.

 

>> More and more, "news" stories seem to be suggesting that it's time the country return to "normal." Is it? Who gets to make that call?
