How different to hear actual answers to questions instead of "we'll see" and "everybody knows it" &"all options are on the table" and "time will tell" and "tremendous success"& "reciprocity--my favorite word" "build the wall" & "fake news" & "the press is the enemy of the people"

Democracy loving intelligent people don't keep harping on this cr*p ad nauseam.

Buttigieg cannot be tarred and feathered with the socialist label #45 is turning into his campaign's newest and best, most misunderstood slur and broadly applied to "everyone not him" insult. His new favorite word since he has been found innocent of collusion by everyone from Ellis to Jackson to Mueller--so squeaky clean.

Thoughtful answers and a broad vocabulary are not on the table in trumplandia and the thought of listening to him til 2024 is truly paralyzing

here's what I would rather listen to

Ryan Lizza

What's the single best plank in the congressional version of the Green New Deal and the single worst plank?

<Buttigieg

To me what's really important about the Green New Deal isn't like one of the elements of it, it's the concept. It’s the concept that we have a national emergency commensurate with a depression or a war. And then the second part of it, the concept that, in rising to meet that challenge, there's a ton of economic opportunity. To me, that's what's really appealing about it. Also, the Green New Deal today is a set of goals, not a fully articulated plan. Which is fine.

Obviously some of the rhetoric around the Green New Deal has gotten a little silly about farting cows and abolishing airplanes, and that sort of thing. But fundamentally I think it’s a sound framework, and it creates the right sense of urgency in that we can kind of luxuriate in a debate over what the right gear might be to do carbon targets, but scientifically the right time to do it was yesterday.{recall it was the idiots at CPAC who bemoaned the GND was going to murder all cows and outlaw airplanes]
