13. Consider that he comes from Indiana

 

... so he's surrounded by rednecks most of the time. I'm sure most of them are MAGAts too. South Bend is on the liberal side because it's a college town. I lived there many years ago when I went to school at Notre Dame & Saint Mary's. But the state - on the whole - is deep red.

When I saw him on Rachel last night, something occurred to me. Mayor Pete needs to change the spelling of his name and all his problems will be solved. He needs to become Pete Booty-Jedge!

23. I don't blame him for using "PETE" on his banners.

 

I thought it was "booty-judge" until he explained it in the Maher interview "Boot-edge-edge".

I also laughed at the anecdote where a redcap claimed America would never vote for anyone with "Butt" in his name and was quickly reminded how enough of America voted for someone with a "Rump" in his name.

We can't expect to run urban campaigns in some states like Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia and win. Our statewide campaigns need to also hit medium sized and small cities in red areas to buck up local democrats and pull in some independents.

Mayor Pete handled Wallace with aplomb. I think that an experienced and hostile interviewer like Chris Wallace is much tougher than a crowd that seemed to have a lot of avid Bernie supporters in it.

Pete Buttigieg has not attacked the Democratic Party at every turn. People believe that he will serve us well by going on Fox, there was not the same sentiment about Bernie based upon his history of dogging the Democratic Party, and "democratic establishment" (what ever that means).

We saw it last election with a lot of crossover Reps polling for Sanders, and we very well could see the same again this season assuming our candidates follow a similar formula.

There is no concern that he will go on Fox and put down the Democratic Party. It is pretty simple to explain the concern about Bernie based upon his documented history.

45. I don't think that's possible.

 

When you're selling you want to cover the entire marketplace. Besides, it's free advertising.

51. I don't think ANYTHING or ANYONE can legitimize that network!

 

The most fun about this is to know that Trump thinks he OWNS Fox. Pete and Bernie are invading his space, and he can't control it. It drives him nuts. Which entertains the hell out of me! Just wait for his deranged Tweets. It will be sheer comedy!

54. I would have agreed just a few weeks ago

 

I have a hard-core RW coworker. Struggles at times, but defends the most egregious shit out of the Trump Cabal because "winning" or whatever. Shes smart, just punches down instead of up. You know the type. We don't see eye to eye on about anything related to society, politics, etc...

Anywhosal, she came in Monday morning and asked me if I had heard of "this Pete guy whose running" and could I pronounce his name for her. Apparently her kiddo (liberal, mid-30s) sent her some clips over the weekend and she is intrigued.

I think anyone with the gravitas to own them in their own yard should go for it (and not all of our candidates need apply for that, IMO). Bernie did great, and I think Pete would as well. In their heart of hearts, they are mortified by Trump. We just need them to come to grips with that before Nov 3 2020.

39. An intellectual on Fox??

 

And one who is quickly becoming a front runner in the primary lead-up??

What is happening?!





On edit - Some folks sound like sore-tailed cats. Embrace the Pete moment.

This attention is important now and beyond. Think of the gay kid who may be sitting in the living room while his dad watches Fox. He or she will never forget Pete!

56. He did really well

 

The last time he was on Faux. Cool, calm and collected. And, of course, super, duper smart. I think a town hall is a great move, if for no other reason, to get in more practice addressing questions from the right.

57. Fox may try to load the audience with a more hostile, Trump loving crowd with Buttigieg.

 

They probably see it as a mistake with Sanders to have anyone in that audience who supported Sanders or were even slightly open minded. The "How many people would give up their employer based insurance in favor of Medicare for all" question backfired badly.

It may be a good thing if they stack the audience with Trump supporters. Then a few million regular Fox viewers would get to hear all those talking points they've been indoctrinated with fired at Buttigieg, and then they would see Buttigieg dismantle those talking points, in an unexpectedly calm, reasonable way they're not used to, and they would have a hard time disagreeing with much of what he says.

There are people who watch Fox who haven't fallen completely off the cliff yet and Buttigieg is a person who might be able to pull a few of them back away from the ledge. I think Sanders can do that as well, but Buttigieg may be even better at it.

Some people may find that distasteful, but it's an important thing to do. Or at least try to do.

64. If Bernie was complicit in having 70% of the audience stacked with his supporters

 

the same courtesy should be extended to Mayor Pete.

Why should he be the sacrificial lamb when Bernie, a seasoned politician, was able to get off easy with his non-Fox / non-hostile audience?

Let's play fair, shalll we?

67. How about; let's not engage in conspiracy theories without any basis?

 

If you have evidence that the audience was stacked in one way or another, present it.

69. Besides the "If Bernie was complicit" nonsense, I think you missed my point.

 

The talking points heard on Fox News and right wing radio are rarely challenged in real time by someone with Buttigieg's abilities.

If Fox tries to stack the audience with Trump supporters it may well backfire, for the reason that regular Fox viewers will be exposed to a very compelling response to those talking points they've been conditioned to believe. A little cognitive dissonance for those who aren't totally beyond reason.

he just likes to tweet bullshit.

He'll end up a millionaire and between that and his support of Fox ratings, that will be the end of his campaign.
