12. As if Boner Spurs wants to run against an Iraq war veteran.

 

She would slice him to ribbons.

2. I wouldn't let a republican's opinion affect my decision

 

He could be trying to poison her image (possibly successful with you).

That said, Gabbard is near the bottom of my list for several reasons. But they are based on my own research and thinking, not someone else's tweet.

OTOH, if you showed a picture of her laughing it up at a party with Matt Gaetz or similar ... different story.

3. He reminds me of children who behave badly to get

 

attention. "Look at me, I'm scummy enough to admire Tulsi Gabbard. Nya, nya." His poor parents. He's apparently been like this most of his life, was even called "agitator in chief" in school. His dad was a big shot in Florida politics, which explains how this freshman creep got into congress.

6. There are a few people that like her around here too.

 

Which is disturbing.

7. When a republican supports (or endorses) a Democrat

 

He is doing - starting, continuing, whatever - the work of the Russian trolls. Gets the discussions going off in all directions. Playing the diversion game. For all we know, he's doing this at the direction of the Russians. Disruption and corruption is so ingrained in Republicans that they may not even realize that this is what they're doing.

11. Republicans know exactly what they are doing. They manipulate Democrats so easily.

 

They anticipate the knee-jerk reaction to their "praise" of some and belittle others with labeling and name-calling.

Divide and conquer.

8. They are both members of the Congressional Reformers Caucus.

 

How in the fuck Gaetz could be part of anything that is supposed to tackle the dysfunction of government is beyond me.

10. I think where this comes from

 

...is that she voted for Extreme Vetting of Syrian and Iraqi refugees in 2015.

Republicans are anti-immigrant but donít like to think of themselves as bigoted.

They can point to Tulsi Gabbard and say the bill was also supported by a non-white leftist woman.

13. David Duke also endorsed her

 

She did reject his endorsement. Still, his choice of candidate is interesting. What about her does he like?
