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.

Road Trip Pt 1. From southern Minnesota to Iowa, over to Indianapolis in one night, on the first leg of the East Coast Road Trip, Pt 1. A stop at the largest truck stop (anywhere?), along I-80 in Iowa. Or somewhere. How do you get from Minneapolis and Saint Paul to Virginia? Do you go 94 to 39 to 74 to 65 to 64? Do you go across the Indiana, Ohio and Penna Turnpikes? Do you go the southern route? A tortured path to Virginia, avoiding snow squalls and winter warnings all the way. Anything for Thanksgiving with the family, right? Especially when you’re cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Hauling ass! Along the way, breaking news coverage of the two big stories; No indictment from the Grand Jury in Ferguson, Missouri … and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is resigning … some say due to pressure from the White House. (Editors note: Somehow I find myself out of synch with the two big stories of the week; Ferguson and Bill Cosby.) More and more it seems the media has a symbiotic relationship with victims, protesters or the otherwise aggrieved. They seem to feed on each other, whether there is a story there, or not. Meanwhile, the media continues to ill serve the American people. Forget ‘objective’, as in ‘both ‘ sides of a story. We’re talking about just getting the facts out. They just can’t seem to do it. Witness the actual live reporting as we drive across the Midwestern US, via scratchy AM radio. “Yes, I hear pops. I can’t say its gunfire, but…”. Really? All you need is a Guy Fawkes mask and a hoodie these days, and you’re a bonafide protester. Now. What to protest. Hey, my neighbor says he was raped by Bill Cosby! Is that good enough? Procedure? Evidence? Well reasoned arguments for and again? Forget it. The road beckons, and it is a good thing. Only thing to think about is avoiding black ice, and keeping your speed up.
