Pete:I appreciate this reporter's swift and honest correction of a misquote on my views of the Obama

presidency.From health care to DADT repeal to the rescue of the auto industry, my appreciation of the great leadership of Barack Obama comes from a very personal place.

1. So am I!

 

Pete is not the person the reporter portrayed him to be!

And is he making waves with voters! They love him.

2. There was a long thread last night attacking Mayor Pete

 

with some even demanding that he immediately withdraw from the race.

I did not comment in the thread because I considered it may have been a misquote as it seemed like something that Pete Buttigieg, the man, would never think or say.

Lots of apologies needed. Have a nice day.

Calling it a disqualifying comment and for him to leave the race was an extreme reaction, even if it had been true.

47. Absolutely not accepting this crap

 

Interesting that Joy Reid and Julian Castro and Malcolm Nance and so many others are...fill in the blank. Lots of non-apologies.

"This one really hurts because it went viral,” he continued, going on to post Buttigieg’s full remarks, corrected."

From the reporter. Well, golly! You'd think there was this 24/7 social media shit storm that has no bottom in it's destructiveness or hate.

25. Maybe the apologies should be for not taking the time to research the story and flatly

 

believe what a reporter wrote? And nowadays we know there are a lot of people out there with agendas, and that includes a lot of people in the media.

We go back to "think before you act". Nowadays we have to be careful to repeat stories without checking their truthfulness, so yes, people should apologize for taking the opportunity to go against one of the Democratic candidates who may not be their choice.

as Rump does nothing but slam Obama for a decade plus. I would love to see Rump try and use it in a debate, Buttigieg would TORCH him in a unique way, I am so sure.

The reporter and editors should have known enough about PB to raise their eyebrows and contact the campaign for clarification of the quote before running with the news. This rush to publish is dealing serious blows to our democracy.

Mueller report, factor in that Hillary won the popular vote, find anything suspect in the polls vs.
outcome, pay attention to the claims of people like James Clapper.

to be a completely bogus, made up misquote, and now you are retrenching and still trying to spin it into a negative attack on Buttigieg. You are now using non sequiturs to trying and reframe it into subjects that were not even discussed, subjects that are now ex post facto being injected by you.

As transparent as a freshly cleaned window.

33. That is what he is Pete is saying

 

He is staking the "moderate" ground to an extent, but he really does go at Rs more directly and indirectly (and stakes a lot more progressive positions) than people give him credit for, and to me he speaks about the real, difference making institutional change we need, which includes going directly at the ways Rs are rat fucking this country.

Side note - I am OK with Joe, and if I had to put $$$ on the race would put it on him. He's a good man, is our best shot at reclaiming some of our international good will because he is a known, reliable and proven entity to other world leaders, and is a good and decent man who has a broader appeal than some of our other candidates.

I would prefer someone who is sharper and more aggressively progressive, but I know the people around me in this country and know who votes and that he will have a real appeal to those who actually show up to vote.

Now he is going all passive-aggressive about it be cause he got stick. He is also claiming via inference that the majority of people criticising his pushing the debunked misquote are (his words) 'Dem/Progressive/Liberterian partisans' and are calling him a pro-Trumper.

Liberterian should be Libertarian btw, but you get the point.

31. I admire Mayor Pete and I think he's the future of our Party

 

... however he's still a long shot for this election. I am not envisioning Pete as our Party's nominee in 2020. However if he should somehow win the nomination, I would be proud to support him and vote for him.

More than likely Pete will figure prominently in future races, and maybe by then he'll be Senator Pete or Governor Pete. I'd like to see him actively motivating the blue/liberal/progressive voters of the Midwestern states, our breadbasket and industrial rust-belt states. He has already shown the ability to excite the new/younger voters that we desperately need to revitalize our Party.
