Two years ago, Pete Buttigieg, or Mayor Pete, was a simple ex-mayor from Indiana. He was the Mayor of South Bend for eight years and had a failed attempt at a Presidential run in 2020. He was the first openly-gay man to run for President. You cannot dispute Mayor Pete’s intelligence as he was Valedictorian of his high school class, graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at the University of Oxford. All of his studies were in the Arts and Politics. None of his studies prepared him for his current position as Secretary of Transportation. His ineptitude proves he is not the right person for the job.
Buttigieg has shown that taking time away from his job and responsibility to the country is something he can handle quite well. Pete was on a twelve-week maternity leave when the boats were stacked off our coast because our supply chain was severely broken. More recently, Buttigieg was on vacation in Portugal when our railroad workers threatened to shut down our economy.
Buttigieg claims to be concerned about Climate Change, yet he has taken a page from John Kerry’s book on traveling the globe. Why travel like everyday people on a commercial jet. He has booked 17 private jet trips in the two years he has been in Washington. These trips have cost American taxpayers over $900,000.. Pete owes us a check for these trips. Whatever the difference in fare between these luxury keys and commercial flights made out to U.S. Taxpayers.
What is it that corrupts a person so quickly when they arrive in D.C.? He came from Indiana, having held no office higher than Mayor. Joe Biden chooses him to be the Secretary of Transportation. He has no qualifications for the job, but he dropped out of the 2020 race paving the way for Biden to win the nomination and go on to defeat Donald Trump. This job for Buttigieg was a gift, payback. Everything in the Swamp is for future or past favors. This is the biggest problem with the swamp. Nothing is done for the benefit of the people but as payment for favors rendered.
How, with so little experience on a national level, could Pete Buttigieg be considered a contender for the Democrat nominee for President of the United States? As we have seen with the Biden Administration, diversity is key, even above competence and experience. Pete Buttigieg is an Ivy League educated gay man with a husband and twin children. These make him a star in the world of WOKE. How frightening is it to think that the Democrat Party is so shallow and so thin on talent that Mayor Pete could be on the ballot in 2024 with a good chance of bringing the first gay family to the White House? All it needs to start is for Joe Biden to step aside. The Progressives will support him, the Media will adore him, and the Democrat sheep will vote for him.
Conservatives must expose and shine a light on Pete Buttigieg to stop the momentum. We don’t need to get personal and attack his lifestyle, but we must highlight his incompetence and lack of dedication to the job he has been confirmed. This criticism will be easy, but it has to be loud enough to get the message across to the Left. The messaging will be a difficult task. It must be done.
