Election2020-Warren-Stumps-Iowa-City-Bob Davis Podcast 900

Final Hours Energy

I can feel the energy from  candidates in the last few hours before the Iowa Caucuses on February 3rd. You will hear it in Election2020-Warren-Stumps-Iowa-City-Bob Davis Podcast 900.

Big Plans

First of all, these candidates have big plans.

Contrast

These days the one constant is the apparent contrast between the president and democrats on the future.

Automatic Grenade Launcher

Above all Warren’s energy and passion means she projects her plans and programs like an automatic grenade launcher.

Lobbing Crowd Pleasers

The Senator lobs one program, tax plan, and initiative after another to an audience. Today in Iowa City, the audience is made up of canvassers, fans, teachers and supporters. They love it.

Hope Over Fear…And Fighting

Especially relevant is the blue Warren campaign bus with the words, “Hope Over Fear” emblazoned on it. The candidate blasts out so many ideas it’s hard for democrats not to be hopeful.

Environment, Spending, Wealth Tax

Most noteworthy are plans for education and environment, a wealth tax, and spending. Spending for child care and child care workers, public schools, forgiving student debt, making college free, and medicare for all.

Super Rich Look Out

Even more she plans to ‘pay for’ all these programs with a tax on the super rich.

Corruption

It seemed to me she is best when talking about corruption in Washington and in what she calls ‘our’ government.

Look Out Politicians and Tax Cheats

Senator Warren says it’s time to end lobbying. Also she wants anyone running for federal office to have to put their tax returns on line. Even more, she says it’s time the US Supreme Court lives up to ‘ethical standards’.

On Record No Judgement

Finally it’s all in Election2020-Warren-Stumps-Iowa-City-Bob Davis Podcast 900. These podcasts from the campaign trail in Iowa this January and February are about getting the candidates on record without judgement.

Boatloads Of Fun

Certainly I hope these podcasts from the campaign trail become resources this election year.

It’s sure a boatload of fun out here.

Just Call Him Mayor Pete

First of all I don’t think too many people can pronounce his name. Since he’s the former Mayor of South Bend a simple ‘Mayor Pete’ will do. Check it out in Election2020-Pete-Buttigieg-Jefferson-Iowa-Bob Davis-Podcast-898.

Feverish Campaigning

Certainly all the candidates are feverishly campaigning. It’s just hours until caucus time here in Iowa. Pete Buttigieg is no exception.

Running All Over Iowa

I’m running into familiar faces. Going from from Fairfield to Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. Then back to DesMoines. Out to Council Bluffs or Sioux City. Reporters. Digital Media people. Campaign workers.

Everyone’s Tired

Furthermore candidates and staff are tired. As I noted on the podcast with Tom Steyer, some of the candidates like to talk.

Pulled Together and Concise

Therefore it’s unusual for a candidate to do a presentation that’s concise. Even more, starting and ending on time.

Get In, Get Back Out

Moreover Buttigieg engages an audience of students, young volunteers and Jefferson residents sparingly. Hitting the issues. Answering questions. Taking selfies. Heading out to the next event.

Not Much Editing With Pete

The mission of these podcasts is to faithfully recreate the event. Due to this I often have to do a lot of editing. Not with Mayor Pete. As a result I can say Election2020-Pete-Buttigieg-Jefferson-Iowa-Bob Davis-Podcast-898 really does take you inside an event.

Oh Yeah! There’s Red Meat

Finally I find it necessary to again state that my democrat friends will enjoy this podcast a lot more than my republican friends.

Put On Headphones. Walk Through The Event

Democrats can use these podcasts to make their caucus decisions. Republicans might want to hear what democrats are actually saying in 2020, rather than accepting what someone else says their saying.

Jury Duty All Week, Campaigning All Weekend

First of all US Senators are the jury in the Impeachment trial of the president. Or so some of them say. So weekends in Iowa are for campaigning. Learn more in Election2020-Amy-Klobuchar-DesMoines-Bob Davis Podcast 896.

How Candidates Interact

Moreover these podcasts give listeners a sense of how candidates are interacting with potential caucus goers.

Senior Senator

Especially relevant? Klobuchar’s status as a senior Senator and moderate Democrat, running in a field of progressives.

Practical Progressive

She calls herself a ‘practical progressive‘.

Lots Of Talk

Certainly politicians talk a lot. Some of these events seem to go on forever.

Editing and Accurate Representation of Events

Due to this circumstance I have to edit. Hopefully these podcasts will be accurate representations of these events.

Taking You Inside Events So wear Headphones

Above all the effort is to take you inside an event so you can experience it. In addition with shorter length podcasts you’ll get an impression of as many candidates as I can record before caucus night!

Trump Is A Big Part Of Campaign

Seems like all the democratic candidates want to talk about the impeachment. They all talk a lot about the President.

Republicans Take Note

Because of this republican leaning listeners and Trumpers may find it difficult to listen all the way through.

Organization and Pivot Counties

However one of my takeaways already is the depth of democrat arguments and the detail of their proposed agendas, should they become president. Even more the level of organization I am seeing here.

Listen and Learn

Finally republicans and Trumpers would be well advised to listen to these arguments and ideas.

Democrat Strategy

In conclusion one thing is sure to be a factor in 2020. Democrats are targeting pivot counties here in Iowa in preparation for a national strategy along those lines later in the campaigns.

Testing Ideas and Arguments For Campaigning This Fall

Therefore it might be a good idea to hear and understand the arguments they’ll use.

Some of them are pretty good.
