    Hell, they said Obama and Bill Clinton were. I'm sure Bloomberg will be a communist too.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    That reads like somebody scared to me, especially when I have years of experience reading comments of said poster.

    Not everyone here has enough self-awareness to recognize themselves as scared... know what I mean?

    No I don't. Self awareness is easy. Fear is easy to recognize for me. How about you?
    But watching Pete campaign and listening to him it's clear he's not the moderate he's peddling himself to be. You think he's a moderate?
    Who's Draper and is he/she the "said poster"?

    You know, given the threads that you start. And if I were you I would answer "no".

    That you didn't know what I meant does not come as a surprise. We have a difference of opinion regarding your self-awareness. I work on facing fear. I consider Pete a moderate.

    I typed 'Draper' by mistake... and have edited the post to read 'Paul Kengor'.

    As to 'said poster', think about it, then guess again.

    I'm said poster? I'm flattered you have years of experience reading said poster.
    Said poster has no fear of Pete Buttigieg.
    Said poster says Pete Buttigieg is no moderate.
    Decriminalizing drug possession is not a moderate position.
    Abolishing the EC is not a moderate position.
    Climate change is a national security threat is not a moderate position.
    Single Payer is not a moderate position.
    "Study" reparations is not a moderate position.

    Please use the link below to access a more comprehensive overview of Pete's views:

    Pete Buttigieg Views on 2020 Issues: A Voter’s Guide - POLITICO

    I consider Pete one of the four major Anti-Trumper Moderate candidates.

    The other three, in order of my preference: Amy, Mike and Joe.
