Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Pete Buttigieg is getting rare praise from some unlikely voices, right-leaning pundits and politicians who have taken notice of his rising popularity, an ascent that began after his widely heralded CNN town hall performance, a treatment quite the opposite of what most of the mayor's primary challengers are receiving from the GOP.

Quick question: Do they know that he is a Gay Democrat?

Ugh, hope this isn't a kiss of death for him. Rather, but I doubt it because it would be too smart of them: they're doing this because they think he would be strong competition and pull moderates.

If the Loony Left on this blog are an accurate sampling, this article just killed his chances at the nomination.

Why? It's certainly the intent and you wouldn't vote for him anyway.

The thing I admire about Mayor Petey is that he has more hypocrisy in his little finger than all of the other Democrats.

Ahh you love hypocrisy. That explains your undying support of your cult leader.

- Loony Left

With Donald Trump as their Dear Leader, Republicans who talk like that are just so totally lacking in self-awareness as to be seen as simple-minded in the extreme.

Most clever, honest and Smoothest politician yet, but too young to be President. The opposite to Trump in every way. Buttigieg might very well be admired by some or many Conservatives, but he will most certainly be feared and loathed by the ruling class. In our entire lives no President has ever been elected without support from the ruling class.

Too young? He's 5 years younger than Teddy Roosevelt. He's 6 years younger than JFK. We need someone with a fresh perspective. Enough with the shrinking frontal lobe white guys.

He also worked with William Cohen and John Kerry. He's well versed on both sides of policy. I call that objective, which a chief executive should be.

I don't see how he can be considered honest when he's willing to lie about his fellow candidates.

He's smooth, though, I'll give him that.

Nah, I'd vote for him, but he won't make it to the general election, if this forum is any indication.

I'd vote for him

Over your beloved Trump?

Doubtful.

Trump is a "mission accomplished." Time to move on. If Mayor Pete is there in the general, then I'll put my vote behind my fandom. Time stamp it lol.
Apart from his sensible policies and military creds, it is tdefinitely time for a new generation in the WH.

The King of Caricature now adds poorly assigning positions to his "arsenal".

Back on topic, I don't know enough about him but what he has said so far has been impressive.

Trump is a "mission accomplished."

What was the mission? To leave America worse off than it was in 2016?

LOL, show me the Unicorn running for any office, anywhere, that won't stoop to that.

What was the mission?

Supreme Court. Bonus was electing a European style oddball candidate, and some wall porn + memes.

He's called the "Green New Deal" a "sound framework" for confronting climate change. He's called for abolishing the Electoral College and has endorsed the idea of single-payer health care. And he's openly gay.

Nah, he doesnt stand a chance in conservateive circles. Just his stand on the electoral college wouldnt get my vote, not to mention his stance on the "green new deal"..
