Shields, Brooks on Chris Christie’s RNC Speech, Negative Advertising

BY News Desk  August 29, 2012 at 6:31 PM EST

The Doubleheader with Mark Shields and David Brooks was live and direct from the Google Hangout studios at the Republican National Convention once again. As we always do, we tackled the politics of sport and the sport of politics. In the first section, we talked about whether Mitt Romney will be able to follow the speech by Chris Christie last night. In the sports section we looked at political contributions by the owners of their sports teams.

We also took a few questions from a couple of folks in the Google Plus world. Debi Rapson joined us from the battleground state of New Hampshire and had a question about Chris Christie’s speech and Ian Foley chimed in from Pennsylvania with a question on negative advertising.

Thanks again to Google for the space and resources, we’ll see them for another edition from Charlotte.
