Here is what Pete Buttigieg has done for South Bend Indiana.
As a liberal socialist this all he can bring to the entire United States.
South Bend is ugly, one in eight houses are vacant and boarded up. There used to be some beautiful houses on the west side, but they're mostly abandoned or trashed now.
One of the worst economies in the entire state with higher overall unemployment numbers and far lower average wage income.
One of the worst places to start a company in the entire country.
South Bend is very business unfriendly; it has the highest taxes in the state, more than doubled the local income tax in one year.
South Bend boasts an extremely high crime rate, 98% of communities in Indiana have a lower crime rate than South Bend, Indiana. The south and west sides are full of crackheads and welfare moochers.
I don’t care what he sticks up his buttt, he has no business in any political office, especially National Policy priorities.
Buttigieg is another DNC one trick pony loser..........................

Obviously there are a lot of people who think the presidency is a school yard play ground and actually think it is ok that we have a homo president. While I would never want any abuse of anyone who is gay but in this case we need to clear our heads. I do not understand what causes people to be gay but I know this. The prime objective of every living creature from bacteria to whales and everything in between including us is to reproduce. So if you have a person attempting that with the same sex then it is clear the wiring of these individuals is crossed. They are in my opinion defective. The white house is not a place for emotionally and mentally defective person like budjudge.

you people fail to understand that this guy is totally against every single thing that Trump is doing. How the fuck is that a good thing. He has no plan for the economy. He is for helping the poor and lazy people of this country with social programs, at the tax payers expense. He is for open boarders more or less. He no business sense. He's way to young also

And Mr. Pete is a great guy, he has been and seen everything from the Military Service, a Rhode Scholar, Gay and been a Mayor and fights for Our Rights All Our Rights. He is multi lingual. Like Trevor said Mr. Pete is pretty much the exact opposite of Donald Trump. Got It Trevor is spot on!

You know dam well they will not let this man be president. Ya'll need to wake up finally and realize if a umm.."man" like Trump can be president clearly someone is pulling strings behind the scenes ...and it ain't gon change unless we get stop with the same ole' routine. Trump will win again and we as a nation will have to repent for ALL of our ways of face total destruction. Trump is just the whisper, his second term will be a shout.

He is a centrist. If you want the democratic party to keep moving to the right and prefer to vote for an inexperienced man, then by all means vote for Pete. Seven years as a mayor of a small city. Veteran? The ROTC program is amazing...it pays your way through college and allows you to serve as an officer and basically do desk duty wherever you are - I know, my brother benefited from this program. Transformed Bend? He gentrified it and made it business friendly. Yes he is educated. So are all those in the running. Is that all we are asking for?

Americans, you guys were lucky to be born in the richest country in the world. But your quality of life is nowhere near a lot of other first world countries, and yet you have the pontetial to have the best quality of life in the world, way above Norway. But it will never happen if you keep electing neoliberals like Buttigieg or Trump, ever.

Others ask but Pete Buttigieg doesn’t think is too young.
I don’t get that question, change the constitution then, not joking seriously It says 35 years old to be president but apparently that’s a problem for most.
What can anybody (not just Buttigieg) humanly possible do to qualify at 35? 🤷🏻‍♀️?
And I suggest a limit up too, actually I beg you, perhaps 70 at the most.

He's an establishment candidate. He's got big money donors backing him, that's why he's so popular. You'll get Obama 2.0 with this guy. Really articulate, smart, but in the end doesn't get anything done. Vote for real change.
J.J. - 19 days ago
Supports Compulsory national service, gentrification/displacement of the poor in Southbend, says no to tuition free higher education, "troubled" by whistleblowing heros and Obama's Chelsea Manning commutation, pro military complex, blames Palestinians for their apartheid, backed off true single payer Medicare for all, stated open to corporate cash.... The list goes on. Progressive?......No thank you!

Buttigieg is a snake. He is an establishment tool and is the only 2020 democratic candidate other than Biden that accepts corporate PAC money from donors like Wall Street and Big Pharma. He's just as bad if not worse than a Hillary Clinton or a Mitt Romney

Please, Please, Please do not be fooled by this guy, ANOTHER FAKE PROGRESSIVE! Pete Buttigiege who apparently qualifies as a progressive by simply being intelligent and in a same sex marriage was recently in secret meetings with other corporate Democrats ( Pelosi, Schumer etc) to figure out how to derail Bernie Sanders campaign, what a douche ! Take that corporate cash and choke on it.
