Didn´t take this non-entity long to go over to the dark side. Seems without his corporate backers, he´d have no campaign at all.

Mayor Pete is a corporate agent, an identity politics meme, a volunteer for the Empire’s war crimes organization, an anti-progressive, and an empty suit.

Indeed! and in addition, lest we forget, MAYOR of one of the great, great cities of the U.S. . . . all of which hugely significant and heroic accomplishments qualify him to be . . . what, exactly?

A corporate stooge, don’t care much, actually not at all, for mayor pete. He seems like a fraud trying to cash in on veterans status.

I want Mayor Pete to compete to the very end of the primary. He constantly reminds the populous of how corporations buy politicians, using them for selfish shortsighted purposes. His campaign has become a farce and best of all, corporate toadies have yet to figure it out. The emperor truly has no clothes.

Bring it on!!! The fundamental problem with all of these corporate toadies is that the public sees straight through them. The mask has been ripped off and you could have Jesus run as a corporate democrat and he would get trashed. It’s great to see the greedy finally get their due.

More evidence of the one party system.

Author sez:
“Mayor Pete Buttigieg received private and direct hiring advice from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg—advice the presidential candidate apparently took.”

Mayor Deceit is making progress on the “candor, courage, and clarity” front.

He’s now coming clean about being a corporate sock puppet.
It just didn’t happen until he started becoming a decent-sized blip on the radar screen.
At which point, he had no choice but to obey his corporate masters and reveal his true self.
Of course, anyone paying attention had his centrist MO nailed down long ago, right?

How could this happen in America? Billionaires are not allowed to own media outlets, manipulate news and buy candidates?

Are they?

. . . which is why the "Falling in With . . . " of the title strikes me now as odd–as if, gee, he didn´t mean to. Must have been an accident. How fortunate!

How I wish the public could see thru this. Remember when Hillary, the very definition of media ‘far-left’, moderate and centrist was pre-selected?

I am sick to death of empty people like this. He stands for nothing, other than his own personal enrichment, and should be nowhere near public office. The Democratic Party is full of assholes like this. He has no chance and he knows it. He is in this to get a lobbying gig, a book deal, maybe some place in some horrible neoliberal administration, which the Democrats will try to bring about. He probably has illusions of winning in the future, but he will instead be a willing attack dog against any type of needed societal progress and he will not hesitate to try and make sure this murderous, inefficient healthcare system stay in place. He was, just months ago, making arguments for single payer and look at him now. He would have done this exact about face if his joke of a campaign won. But, he stopped pretending now that it is obvious he won’t win. So, the racist police lapdog is now into cashing out mode.

" The Teflon Techie " of South Bend really is gettting the mad shove into the bright lights and big city. MSDNC & CNDNC are pushing a outlier poll, interviews with Clintonista apparatchiks, interview between The Teflon Techie and Chuck T. Odd and Hilldegard Hillary the Hun signalling there’s Socialists and Communists in bed with our children, " oh nos ". Call out the political truant officers, immediately.
As Biden goes South the Clintonista Clan heads to the Hinterland with her Hessian troopers. My, oh my, McCarthy is back and her initials are HRC.
But, I’m not naming anyone, understand?

Pete is an identity politician to the core… notice his work history has been updated to be a community organizer! The deception is only obvious when one looks at the issues.

When the rich can’t control the issues, they turn to identity politicians.
