The hidden obstacle for Buttigieg 2020

You need at least some sex appeal to win in politics. And not that he's bad looking at all, but the openly gay aspect turns the switch "off" for all but the most delusional fraus. That leaves gay men as the only ones subject to his sex appeal.

Contrast this with Bill Clinton, who made straight women and gay men swoon. Or even Melania.

by Anonymousreply 13804/14/2019

I disagree. He has the same policy positions as all the others, but has a very conservative speaking style, which is oddly soothing. It's a contrast to the flailing and histrionics of Beto and Booker, which turns a lot of people off.

Buttigieg has a different quality in common with Obama: calmness. Which is going to be really nice after four years of Trump hysteria.

Keep in mind, Buttigieg is going to spend a year and a half on the trail and will look older. Then if he did a four year term he would be in his forties and look like most younger Presidents.

I think he’s going to look a lot hotter when he gets just a couple more years on him. Think of Obama when he was first elected. He looked like a kid almost. A couple of years later he looked a lot older. He turned into a hot Daddy type and he was still pretty young.

Some people grow into their looks.

He needs to make it explicitly clear that he’s a top. His people should stage photos of him patting his husband on the ass, so voters know he’s the “man” in the relationship. It also would help if some of his exes gossiped to a rag about his sexual prowess and huge dick (even if neither of these things are true). Some of these should be women, with Mayor Pete later “confirming” that he used to date girls when he was young and in the closet. We need to paint him as a masculine, big dick top, a conqueror of both ass and pussy. That should add plenty of sex appeal.

He also needs to hit the gym and then they can have him captured on a beach shirtless with his ripped body exposed.

I said last week the same thing - the male candidate needs to make sure everyone know he has a rather large cock, and the female candidate will need a hot rack. I agree that Butigieg has to be known as fudge packer, not the woman. The majority of Amurcan still think in that way - which one of you is the woman?

Since we already had a half-black president, the next step would be a half-woman candidate...Mayor Pete?

No, the majority of Deplorables might think that way, but probably not even the majority of Republicans.

No Democrat was ever going to get those votes. If he was an Andy Cohen type of gay, that would probably bring up the “is he macho enough” people, but he seems like a steady-hand-at-the-tiller type guy. That’s really his superpower.

As a straight female. Physically speaking he has no sex appeal and if I have to choose I might as well go for beto. There is nothing unique about him besides been gay. I am also offended that some gays will compare him to obama. Obama had to fight the negative perception of been a black man which is different from pete. He had a harder battle to fight because of the color of his skin. As a black person it is offensive.

R51 You have no idea what you are talking about and you're also homophobic and just plain stupid. It was the Press that cleared the way for Obama because they wanted him as the first black American president. He actually had it easier because of the color of his skin. And yes, Pete does have sex appeal which you certainly can't see because you don't have it yourself. You should be offended by your own ignorance.

by Anonymousreply 5804/12/2019

R56, that’s what they did last time because it was a strategy. Bash Hillary because they all thought she would get the nomination and let Bernie go scot free because he wasn’t.

I don’t know if they can do it this time. Some of the candidates may choose to engage with Trump (a mistake), and then Trump will “hit back ten times harder” as he is so fond of saying, whether it’s strategic or not, because of his ego.

Also, I think Trump has mentally deteriorated a lot since 2016, and he doesn’t have the self control any more to keep his powder dry until he sees the whites of their eyes. He’ll go to one of those campaign stops and just bash them all, get a lot of applause, and do it more.

So, leaving policy aside for a second, who would be the best Democratic foil from the anti-Trump perspective? By which I mean, which set of qualities is most likely to contrast with Trump in a way that makes the Democratic contender seem fresh, and the president appear old, clueless, and malevolent? I suspect it is this question that is behind the budding candidacy of one Pete Buttigieg. When you think of him in a debate with Trump, one-on-one, everything gets scrambled. I don’t know what that dynamic would be like exactly, but it feels a lot less predictable than, say, Elizabeth Warren or Beto O’Rourke.

Trump would be the oldest president in history at 74; Buttigieg would be the youngest at 39. Trump landed in politics via his money and celebrity after years in the limelight; Buttigieg is the mayor of a midsize midwestern town, unknown until a few weeks ago. Trump is a pathological, malevolent narcissist from New York, breaking all sorts of norms. Buttigieg is a modest, reasonable pragmatist, and a near parody of normality. Trump thrives on a retro heterosexual persona; Buttigieg appears to be a rather conservative, married homosexual. Trump is a coward and draft dodger; Buttigieg served his country. Trump does not read; Buttigieg does. Trump’s genius is demonic demagoguery. Buttigieg’s gig is careful reasoning. Trump is a pagan; Buttigieg is a Christian. Trump vandalizes government; Buttigieg nurtures it.

To put it simply, Mayor Pete seems almost designed to expose everything that makes the country tired of Trump.

Is Pete Buttigieg a Transformational Candidate?

There are signs that he could change American politics. There are also a lot of open questions.

by Anonymousreply 6304/12/2019

R63, that’s what I think. They’re like two sides of the same coin. That’s why I think Pete might resonate with voters. He’s the exact opposite of everything they’re tired of about Trump, but he’s not mean about it.

Nobody cares, R65, except the Mike Pences of the world. Who don’t vote Democratic anyway.

R61, I really don’t hate Melania. I have a couple of autistic nephews in their twenties and I really think she’s on the autistic spectrum, and that’s why Barron is too. Trump’s other kids don’t seem to be. I think her parents were using her as a wallet and she used Trump as a wallet. She tried to get a modeling career going in the U.S., she wasn’t really getting anywhere and Trump came along. He’s a perfect husband for an autistic woman because he doesn’t give a damn what she thinks as long as she agrees with whatever he’s saying and she can do that. In the end, she just wanted to marry a rich guy that would pay for her shopping so she wouldn’t have to worry about survival any more. She did that.

One of my autistic nephews had a mother who really worked with him, he had a lot of problems as a kid and still has some, but he’s mostly ok. Their other kid is normal and you can really tell the difference in personality although they both look alike and did well in school.

The second nephew has other parents who were very self-centered and did nothing to work with him. He has major anger problems and can be violent, steals and is abusive. Can’t hold onto a job or relationship.

I think Melania was born autistic at a time when no one knew what that meant and her social skills are very poor. I think she hides from people and can only relate to family, which is true with a lot of autistics. It’s probably the same with Barron.

I think she was looking for a rich husband to take care of her and in spite of her beauty, found it very hard because rich guys want a hostess and a lively, vivacious woman to help them with their business contacts and entertaining and I don’t think she can do that. Trump didn’t want that, he wanted a yes woman, not a personality.

I do think she’s a whore, but I certainly don’t hate her. I think she’s spending every day above her head and just hides from people to feel safe. But I also feel she has no compassion for the less fortunate and part of that is she’s had to “go along to get along” with Trump, he has no empathy and she has just followed his lead. Living with him has probably done a lot to mold her into a less empathetic, worse person. She did things for him that she would have stayed out of if it was her choice, like parroting his ill-informed political statements. She’s not accomplished or educated, she just landed in a situation that was the best she could have asked for, until Trump ran and won. Then her carefully curated life was ruined.

R33 It can't be Chasten's family house. He doesn't appear to have any relationship with them.

[Quote] Glezman told the Times that his sexuality was a difficult subject in his Roman Catholic household. He told his family he was gay at age 18 and moved out shortly after. “I don’t recall my parents specifically saying I couldn’t live at home anymore, but I was made to believe I needed to leave.” Glezman said he spent time on friend’s couches after moving out of his family home.

That's going to be a problem on the campaign trail because his family might come out of the woodwork and bash him and Pete in the press for their sexuality and marriage. Imagine the Daily Mail stories. It'll make the drama with Meghan's family look tame in comparison.

You’re familiar with the story of Alan Turing, yes? lt used to be illegal to serve alcohol to gay men in New York. Nobody wins the oppression olympics.

Well, Bill Clinton came from a total white trash family and his brother had a criminal record. In this case, it's only the potential first spouse's family. Pete's family are intellectual progressives. I feel bad for Chasten and what he's had to deal with.

[quote]Pete needs to have one of Bill Clinton's "Sister Souljah" moments.

He can start with R51/R71.

Pete's is attacking identity politics. Which is dicey because if Pete weren't gay and it weren't for identity politics, he would be sitting in South Bend watching TV.

Let's put quotation marks around "identity politics." Right-wingers use the term to mean "desire for all people to be treated equally." They, on the other hand, want special treatment for straight white fundamentalist Christians, which is definitely the real identity politics.

Now it seems another Glezman has jumped in on the bash Pete and Chasten act. This is Erin Glezman. She may be Rhyan's wife or a sister or cousin of Chasten. She liked the tweet in R114 and she has a bunch of deplorable shit on her own timeline. Coincidentally, she just opened her Twitter account this month. Odd timing. Pete and Chasten better watch out. This might get nasty fast.

She's Rhyan's wife. Btw, what kind of white trash spelling is Rhyan?

As Jesus said it's your hood and crazy shit family that will be the last to accept you.

R125, her whole twitter is anti-abortion and she has 10 followers. Poor Chasten. It must be like waiting for the other shoe to drop. She’ll probably go on Fox and try to stir up shit.

She also says she’s a pastor’s wife. Yippee.

R126 Yeah, she confirms this.

I don't think people are going to judge Buttigieg's suitability to be the Democratic nominee based on what a few nutty relatives of his husband are saying.

Many successful political leaders have a few bad apple relatives around, including other Presidents, and it hasn't stopped them.

Rhyan illustrates why Pete running is a mistake. Mock their husbands all you want, but Jane and Jill’s families are on their sides.

R133 Who is that dude?

Pete's distance stance suggests he's not into it. The First Lubey however...

Anyone who thinks that the rightwing tweets of Chasten's family are going to have any effect on Mayor Pete's candidacy, outside the Fox viewers who already basically think all the other Democrats are also antichrists, is nuts.

Btw the Glezman woman linked to in R130, for all her endorsement of rightwingery, implicitly accepts gay marriage by calling Peter her brother-in-law. Sign of progress?

That's Tim McGraw. He's playing in South Bend tonight.
