Pete Buttigieg announces run for president

As much as I admire him , using the moniker "Mayor Pete" will doom him , he will not win . Mayor's do not win presidential elections, bad , bad , choice. It corners him in a box as being not experienced, he should have fired his PR Team but it is to late . Bad choice , no one going to the polls in red states will vote for a mayor, period.

They voted for a businessman that’s never even been elected dog catcher.

My God what is it with you people? You are so tiresome. Won't vote for him because of Mayor Pete, won't vote for him because of his last name, won't vote for him because of his husband's name.

Doesn't anyone vote on issues anymore?

What's next, won't vote for him because he has a one eyed dog?

They started with the “Mayor Pete” because no one could pronounce his last name. In a few months, no one will be saying Mayor Pete. Everyone will know how to say his name.

He's got a lot of goodwill towards him right now. He is announcing at the right time.

Even that cunt Ava DuVernay likes him.

Yeah, Ava was retweeting him like crazy yesterday.

The easiest way to to remember how to say his name is to turn into two words. "Buddha judge". It's not 100% accurate pronunciation, but close enough for government work......

Buttplug or buttipegging is much better. His last name sounds like buttigag.

Defeatists or trolls. He's smart to use Mayor Pete. His last name is very difficult for people to remember. They'll eventually remember it but until then, he can be Mayor Pete.

Nobody votes for people with funny sounding last names.

"Mayor Pete" is folksy and homespun. I think it can be appealing to voters.

It's catchier than "Buttigieg." I think it works for him. It contributes to the down to earth image.
