Starting to believe Buttigieg can catch the mo. If he fades down the stretch, he's still a near lock for VP or a cabinet post, but his profile is rising in the media sphere. He just needs the money to expand his ground game.
I was very unhappy when Obama won his second term. Took me about 2 whole days to get over it. I can’t imagine how bad it’s going to be for the leftists when The Donald is re-elected.
Buttigieg's approach to the Christian Left does setup him for success and he hasn't faltered once in any interview I've seen by him in explaining a moral calling for each and every one of his positions. I do however wonder if being gay will prevent him at the national level, despite him normalizing his church marriage as much as one possible could in 2019. I also wonder what his reception on the left will look like as he invokes his faith publically (though disclaimed as only personal), when the grassroots of the Democratic party have spent 20 years making "Jebus" jokes at the Republicans following the GOP move to win always via the Religious Right.
The GOP has the religious right and many of them walking around with bibles are nut jobs. If you take an honest look at the left and I don't really mean the 5 or so centrist dems that remain, I'm talking the fruits and nut variety, they very much are a religion.
Gay is the new bacon. For years it was just some random slab of mystery meat and then an aggressive media campaign made it almost sacred.
Dems have always been down with Jesus. No Dem has dared to publicly break with him in any election and many mainstream liberals are still religious, especially nonwhite ones. Buttigieg is trying to tether his religious appeal to people like William Barber, which is a decent counterpoint to evangelicals, but one they can't call radical like they did to Jeremiah Wright. I think his faith bit is corny personally, but no one in the dem party would consider me or any other leftist their "grass roots."
Buttigieg, Gillibrand, Biden....
In 2016 Hillary was going to be nominated no matter who was running.
That decision was made long before everyone who was running stepped up to the table and played out all the way to the end.
No one on that side had a chance, even Bernie took a shot to the nuts but refused to say anything because it would have sealed his fate and kept him from running again.
Unfortunately, it seems what a candidate brings to the table has no relevance whatsoever
Looks like the democratic powers that be are coming after Biden now. Agree he's creepy as fuck but this NV chick waited all these years to come at him now? I heard she used to be Team Bernie and now she's Team Beto so she obviously has a reason to start shit up.
As much as I'm impressed with the lil mayor Buttigieg, a gay dude with Butt in his name isn't going to beat President Trump this time around...
He campaign was over before it started.
Shotgun Joe would be kicked out of a petting zoo for Christ sake
The Cuckery continues...
Beto O'Rourke: The Electoral College Is Basically Just Like Slavery
I'm curious who put the hit on Shotgun Joey.
How/Why did these women all of a sudden decide to come forward, weeks after newspaper stories from the ’70s suddenly reappeared outlining Creepy Joe’s now-unfashionable?
These women surfaced at the same time as the story popped up about Biden’s idiotic bragging last year about getting Ukraine’s top prosecutor fired just as that AG was opening an investigation in 2016 into an oligarch’s company that had just hired Creepy Joe’s even creepier son Hunter?
Who decided it was time to take Creepy Joe off the board?
I couldn't care less about tax returns but crazy cuck Bernie talked all that noise about Trump's tax returns that he needs to put up or sit the fuck down...
In a Diverse Candidate Field, How Is Pete Buttigieg’s Sexuality Factoring Into His Appeal?
Nope, we need more "Handy" Joe Biden groping his way to the White Crib.
President buttigieg lol
I'm down for the B&B train.
We doing Biden and Buttigieg. It's like a less gay version of Boomer/ Millenial Combo @Sex Chicken / @conor mcgregor nut hugger
The Creepy Joe accusations we all knew would come out are going better than I thought they would.
I honestly think it'll all blow over within a few months.
LoL @ a gay guy named BUTTigieg judging whether a person believes in God...
