Secretary Pete Buttigieg must be President in 2025

Vote for him, and elect him your 47th President.

by Anonymousreply 115February 24, 2023 6:22 PM

Because he's such a brilliant Secretary.

If he makes it thru the Primary juggernaut, I will vote for him. Sure ain’t voting for whatever rubbish the Repugnants put on the ballot.

Buttigieg would make a fine POTUS. Whether he ever gets the chance is another matter. I'd like to think he has a shot but America is so often backward in its thinking about anything/everything.

He's so fucking SMART. I like President Biden just fine, he's doing a great job. He doesn't have that whip-smart intellect like Presidents Obama and Clinton but Pete does have it and I like having that in the top job. I sleep better at night knowing that brainpower is there.

He would be a good president with seasoning.

He is great at debating and showing a vision for the future, but he hasn’t produced anything of note that would make the public pay attention.

If he can demonstrate in the next 12 months with the infrastructure bill that he can execute multiple infrastructure projects quickly/under budget that improve people’s lives, he will something to campaign on in 2024.

Otherwise-he should try to run for the Senate in Michigan.

At this stage, I'm not willing to commit to anyone, except Biden.

If Biden chooses not to run, I'll consider other options, focusing primarily on whether I think the person can win in a general election against likely rethug candidates.

I'm not going to annoint anyone this far out, especially with a sitting dem president who has not indicated he won't run.

True Story = I once got a job at Kaiser Permanente. I applied on a lark. Went thru the interview process and shockingly got hired. I was handsome, late 20s. I had a previous fancy job title but that was because my ex had given me the job. I guess they though I was some sort of wunderkind. I was the head of my department. The pay was amazing. But I also had ZERO idea of how to do my job. I had a basic idea but I knew right away I was unqualified. All I did was allocate jobs to people who knew what they were doing, and believe me staff knew how inept I was. The woman who hired me wasn't going to admit she made the mistake of giving me a job, plus I was openly gay so I really had no concern about getting fired. Finally, after 6 months I turned in my resignation...My point is, I really think Pete has a job where he has NO IDEA of how to do it. I am not insulting him, but the fact that he doesn't seem to stay in his office is very telling. And in your office you are surrounded by people all day who know you are totally incompetent and clueless. Ultimately it's Bidens fault for giving Buttigieg the job. But Pete acts more like a traveling Prize Patrol member than a Secretary of Transportation.

Pete knows exactly how to do his job, R30. Whatever he didn't know before he got there, he's learned in the two years since then. He's not exactly slow on the uptake.

He's doing what the POTUS tells him to do, that's his fucking job. He wants Pete on the road (well he IS the Secretary of Transportation) and he wants him laying waste to Faux Noise pieces of shit like Tucker the Shmucker Carlson and the rest of the retards over there.

He was the mayor of a city of 39,000 - the size of a large town. And he wasn't even a good mayor. And he's not a good Secretary. Maybe there are people more qualified to be leader of the free world. And he had the bright idea to tax people for the miles they drive. One of the few travel options poorer people can afford is driving. But don't raise taxes on the rich, pay for infrastructure on the backs of average Americans with a flat tax that will impact the rich the least.

I agree with supporting Jared Polis instead who is much more competent and credible, and he appeals to a wider base of people. I have no idea who Jared is married to without having to google, and that’s how or should be. Pete is caught in the Peter Principle. He’s good with interviews and should just move on to being a political commentator.

Buttigieg has a recent record that would follow him into any potential 2024 WH run. It seems safe to say he's not well loved by enough all sides to make his way in what will likely be a crowded field.

Even if PB wins the nomination he just ticks off too many conservative/GOP to ever win WH. it isn't just his being gay either; again just his actions and recent record as head of DOT.

I think it's because Polis never got much attention when he was in Congress and doesn't get a whole lot of attention outside Colorado. Sadly, I don't think a gay person could get elected POTUS within the next 20 years. The U.S. is still homophobic and anti-gay Christians still have a lot of power.
