I don’t think Biden is going to handle these next two months well. Bernie or Pete guys, these are your options! :rotflmfao:

I'm surprised that more of you Republicans haven't gotten behind Peter as a Trump alternative. He's GOP-lite.

He most certainly is not. In any case, I haven’t been a Republican for 3 years.

What is it about Peter that you don't like?

What about him do you like that would make you consider voting for him?

Having a gay president before having a female president would make 3rd wave feminist heads explode around the country.  Plus watching some of those gulf coast countries forced to welcome and recognize a gay man would be worth it.  
 

In all seriousness, he just seems like a good guy. He’s pretty much your standard democrat but without the socialism attached to it.

But there are other Democrats that are "standard" and who don't have "socialism" attached to them... like Klobuchar, Biden, or hell, even Yang.

All would be better than Mayor Pete IMO. Of course, Buttigieg would be an immensely better president than Trump.

Then again, so would my cat. Your cat probably would too if you have one.

I believe I’ve said I’d vote for all of those people as well.

I like Pete for the same reasons as mug basically. He seems like a stand up guy who doesn't shy away from hard answers. But is also boring(which is a huge plus for me after the last 4 years) and nerdy. 

I do have Klobuchar as my #1. Biden is too old. I have no issue with Yang but don't think he has a shot but I think he is onto something with his basic income. 

 

Also it will be hilarious to see Pete and trump on stage together and trump trying to insult him without going to the gay factor.

I’m voting against Trump for the third time. How many times have you done it?

He’s committed to greatly expanding the role of the Federal government just like all the rest of them, which I don’t like. He wants to expand Medicare when we can’t even afford where it’s at right now, while setting prices for drugs which will drive up the cost for those on private insurance. He’s in favor of the Green New Deal, wants to abolish the electoral college, wants to make illegal immigration a non criminal offense. He wants to repeal the corporate income tax that put us competitive with the rest of the world. And he wants to stifle the expansion of charter schools and limit school choice...need I go on. He’s also a panderer that is only in the position he’s in because he smartly turned back toward the middle before everybody else to become the Joe Biden backup candidate. Soon he’ll start giving solemn soliloquy’s about how racist and terrible America is in the hopes that black voters will buy it from him.

Not my type.

I didn’t want to be too petty and attack his mayoral record.

I wouldn’t vote for him, but he’d be fine as President. He’s smart, seems like a decent person, and has been politically savvy enough to get this far in the race and still be a contender. His main problem as I see it is the only reason he has for running is that he knows he’s smart, savvy, and sees that the field is weak and Trump is beatable. It’s like hey, what the hell, maybe I should do the job.

That and black voters don’t like him. That’s a big problem too.

Couldn't agree more. The guy is smart and that's better than what we got but he just doesn't pass the smell test for me. Something is unauthentic about this guy. Could be a replicant or something.

"All six Democratic presidential candidates on next month’s debate stage will be white after Kamala Harris pulled out of the race Tuesday"
