Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901

Series End With Bernie Sanders

First of all, this most noteworthy podcast series draws to a close with Bernie Sanders. Go inside one of this signature events in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Running To Get Candidates On Record

Certainly it has not been easy to get all the remaining presidential hopefuls on the record in Iowa.

Michael Moore’s Mileage

Likewise for Michael Moore, one of Senator Sanders’ surrogates. Moore proudly touts putting ‘fifteen hundred miles’ on his car in the previous ten days.

Moore’s Got Nothing On Mobile Podcast Command

I got a good laugh out of Moore’s bragging. Mobile Podcast Command has easily added more than two thousand miles in less than a week. Even more on back roads in the winter.

Political Storm Chasing

There is a storm chasing quality about chasing several candidates running an expensive statewide race. All for a straw poll. A feature of hundreds of caucuses held across the state on Monday night, February 3rd.

Two For One

It’s especially relevant that this podcast is the only one of the series that features two events. Senator Sanders was stuck in Washington for the Clive, Iowa event. So, I hotfooted it further east to Iowa City, to get a full Sanders speech, up close and personal. Hear it in Election2020-Iowa-City-Bernie-Sanders-Bob Davis Podcast 901.

Feel The Bern

Finally you get the whole ‘Feel The Bern‘ experience in this podcast. A big event featuring live music, a slice of how the team uses these events to organize volunteers and canvassers and a profane rant by a screaming Michael Moore. Moore struggled to fire up a crowd waiting for the Senator.

All About Organizing

In conclusion there’s no question Senator Sanders’ candidacy has attracted an army of young devotees. The question is going to be whether organizing those supporters will deliver caucus goers.

Caucus In Fairfield

So, from Iowa City it’s on to a caucus in Fairfield, Iowa.

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.

Lots Of Ideas And Plans

First of all Tom Steyer is an activist. Second he is a billionaire. He’s running for president and he has a lot of ideas and plans. He’ll tell you about them in Election2020-Tom-Steyer-Big-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 897.

Democrat Patterns Emerging

These days after a few days on the campaign trail you start to see and hear patterns in all the speeches candidates make. Steyer is no exception. The main theme? President Donald Trump.

Political Red Meat

Certainly Iowans coming out to hear these speeches want political red meat. They’re getting it from Steyer.

Racist! Criminal! Incompetent!

Most noteworthy quotes from Steyer include comparing the republican administration to the holocaust. Trump’s a racist. Incompetent. A criminal.

Go Ahead…Talk

In contrast to cheap talk though, Steyer has put his money where his mouth is for years. NextGen Climate and most recently Need To Impeach have mobilized millions.

Organize Highest Democrat Turn Out Ever

Furthermore Steyer intends to use experience with NextGen America and Need To Impeach to deliver the what he says will be the highest democratic turn out in history. Moreover he says democrats will win big in 2020. He’ll tell you all about it in Election2020-Tom-Steyer-Big-Plans-Bob Davis Podcast 897.

Smart and Detailed

Especially relevant here is the fact that Steyer is smart and detailed. Consequently he talks. A. Lot. That means editing down hours of speaking and questions from the audience into a capsulized version of what actually went down.

Political Coverage True To What Went Down

Furthermore my intention is to take podcast listeners into these events with no judgements. I sincerely hope I was able to do this with Steyer. In addition, this time I talked to some of the people at the event.

Everyone Listen…Republicans Too

In conclusion I am sure my democrat friends will love most of what Steyer has to say. Republicans not so much in contrast. Still, I hope my republican friends can listen to understand the issues.

Actionable Proposals

Above all, despite the red meat, I sense most of the actionable proposals are surprisingly moderate. Even for Tom Steyer. That should concern republicans, because those kinds of ideas are not easily dismissed.
