Sunday Talks, 9/9/12

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, will be back in the spotlight after this week’s Democratic National Convention, appearing on three of Sunday’s television talk shows. (Wow, having Republicans on the Sunday talkies so they can counterbalance the Democrats! What a novel idea! After all, we all know that the Dems get MUCH MORE coverage than the Republicans…)

Romney and his wife, Ann, will make a rare appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and Ryan will be interviewed on ABC’s “This Week” and CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

NBC also has San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, who gave the Democratic convention keynote address Tuesday night in Charlotte, N.C., and Bill Bennett, who was education secretary under President George H. W. Bush.

CBS also has White House senior adviser David Plouffe and plans to air excerpts of a weekend interview with President Barack Obama, due to be taped on the campaign trail in Florida.

ABC also has Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on a political roundtable with conservative commentator George Will and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

On CNN, “State of the Union” hosts Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown and former GOP presidential contender Newt Gingrich.
