The GOP Must Seize the Center or Die – Intelligence Squared Debate Wednesday (live webcast)

Intelligence Squared debates

The presence of David Brooks* (of whom I am a fan) on this panel gives me some hope that thoughtful discussion will actually take place.

The IQ2 webcasts are free.

The GOP Must Seize the Center or Die (click the LIVE STREAMING link)

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

For those of you in New York, tickets are sold out.

2012 was a disappointing year for Republicans. The failure to win key swing states in the presidential election and surprising losses in the House and Senate have prompted some reflection. Was their embrace of small government, low taxes, and a strong conservative stance on social issues at odds with shifting American demographics? Or did the GOP embrace the right platform, but the wrong candidates?

FOR:
David Brooks, Op-Ed Columnist, The New York Times
Mickey Edwards, Former US Congressman (R), Oklahoma

AGAINST:
Laura Ingraham, Host, The Laura Ingraham Show
Ralph Reed, Chairman, Faith and Freedom Coalition
