Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816

The Northwest Sportsman’s show is the backdrop for breaking news! Mueller’s big fishing expedition is over. We’ll talk about it in Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816.

Attorney General’s Report of A Report

While the media melts down and the rest of the world yells at each other about the ‘details’ of four pages from the Attorney General. it’s time to vent.

A Political Minority Monopolizes Our Time For Nothing

These days it sure seems like we are at the mercy of political types. People who spend all day clicking on, watching and listening to any show doling out details Washington’s latest intrigue.

Real People Looking At Boats Seems Like A Good Idea

What a breath of fresh air to join Minnesotans at the Sportsman’s show. Fishing rods and reels. Rifle scopes. Resorts. Meat smokers and boats. Lots of boats. A rite of spring in these parts.

No CNN MSNBC or Fox Equals Bliss

Moreover not a single TV in the place tuned to CNN or Fox, or MSNBC and their incessant coverage of every scratch of Robert Mueller’s ass and Donald Trump’s anguished tweets in response. Or the bleating of the disappointed democrats. Or the “I told you so’s” from republicans.

All The Predictions Turn Out To Be Wrong

Especially relevant is our need to be delivered from the heroes of political news addicts, and their constant uninformed predictions.

Trump’s Revenge

Finally for now, President Trump can take a well deserved victory lap in the form of tweets and mass emails, or the next hour long press conference, In addition his supporters deserve a moment of bliss as for once their sworn enemies are left reaching or speechless.

Time For All The Politicians And Political Addicts To STFU

In conclusion it seems to me that our biggest problem is our fixation on the intrigues of the federal government in Washington, and our worthless politicians in state capitols, county commissioner offices and city hall.

Fishing Anyone?

Suddenly going fishing sounds like a pretty good idea.

Photo Finish-Down To The Wire-Election 2018-Podcast 767

With just about two weeks to go until election day 2018 polls are showing tighter races. Suddenly the narratives and storylines the media loves are thrown to the wind. Find out what’s changing in Photo Finish-Down To The Wire-Election 2018-Podcast 767.

Listen To The Election 2018 Series

Especially relevant are the series of podcasts I did looking into all the so called ‘toss up races’. What I found is detailed in that series. Listen to those podcasts here.

House Senate and Governor’s Elections Are Tightening

In addition what I suggested in my series on the midterms is many of these house, senate and governor’s elections would be close anyway. Sure enough across the country polls show tightening races as we come down to the wire.

Media Bias?

Are media elites in Washington and New York City operating from a world view that sees the possibility of a so called ‘blue wave‘ election when there hasn’t been much evidence to support this view? Find out in Photo Finish-Down To The Wire-Election 2018-Podcast 767.

A Primer on Polls. Again.

Finally there are the polls. In this free wheeling podcast I give subscribers and listeners another quick primer on the polls. Polls do not ‘predict’. Polls do not ‘say’. Closer elections make it more difficult for pollsters to ‘predict’ outcomes.

One Poll To Watch Out For

The New York Times/Sienna College poll is singled out in this podcast as problematic. This poll is showing wide variances in its results for candidates in Tennessee, Minnesota and many other places. Should democrats and republicans believe this particular poll. In the absence of any other polls to trend I would tell my listeners to be very dubious of this poll. I’ll tell you why in Photo Finish-Down To The Wire-Election 2018-Podcast 767.

In conclusion the mad rush to analyze the impact of news events on the election, on a day to day basis, is probably a mistake.

This one is going down to the wire to a photo finish!

Political Depression. To close out March, 2016 after a quick review of this week’s headlines, one can only conclude we’re in a Political Depression. It’s depressing to read about and depressing to talk about. Yet, there are compelling developments to talk about. On the heels of the Marco Rubio announcement that he will not release ‘his’ delegates to the RNC on the first ballot, and a letter from a North Dakota Republican National Convention Official which states that the delegates are not bound, even on the first ballot, the time has come once again to remind listeners and voters you have not been caucusing and voting for presidential candidates for 2016. The people who will choose the 2016 nominee are the delegates to the national convention, chosen by congressional district. So, in Minnesota if you left the caucus after casting your straw poll votes, and did not get a chance to go to the BPOU convention, and then onto the congressional district convention where you might have been chosen as a delegate to the RNC, you were wasting your time. In fact, people voting in the primary elections on both sides of the political spectrum appear to have been wasting their time, since both party ‘establishment’ structures have taken pains to point out the delegates choose the candidates, and the party bosses have that well in hand. Are we going to be saying hello to a Bush running against a Clinton, or a retreat of 2012 for the RNC, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan? The next waypoint in this process will be when we get to the end of the primary and caucus process which ends sometime around June. If Ted Cruz or Donald Trump do not get the required number of 1237 delegates – enough to win a vote on the first ballot – the convention will be thrown into chaos. What does the Republican Party stand for? Once the general election gets underway, its going to become quite clear how much damage this cycle’s primary season has done to the republican party. What about the future? What do republicans stand for? Are they free trade or protectionist? Big government or limited government? Driven by religion, or open minded? Will republicans give up and just allow party officials to dictate to them who to vote for, or will they finally start working on on building a real grassroots political movement? Time will tell.
