Cory Booker ends Presidential bid

HU-885118952

He just never picked up steam or got a real viral moment. Not his election year.

I like Corey Booker but I am glad the field is narrowing. It's way down to the top four or five and I'm hoping Buttigieg shines as he usually does in the debates. It's hard for Republicans to watch because they need to look at their thesauruses to learn new bigly words since trump speaks at a second-grade level.

He's a president, Buttigeig is a mediocre mayor.

So what was Trump's political experience before becoming President, if being a mayor is being mocked?

Our current threshold for the presidency is a bankrupt reality tv star with zero political experience and who cheated on his pregnant wife with a porn star. A "mediocre mayor" would be a massive upgrade for the American people.

I'm sure we'll see Buttigeig's wedding picture pop up soon.

Geeze, a mediocre mayor which isn't true, compared to a bankrupted casino owner, a reality TV star, a man married three times and cheated on all wives , slept with porn stars and paid them off, took money from charities for his own use, had a fake university, stiffed most of his contractors and has 23 sexual abuse cases waiting in court. I think I'd prefer a mayor, especially one with an IQ 50 points above trumps.

So is the woman in the photo next to him his wife or girlfriend?

Lindsey who?

Never mind, he'll probably be on a CNN or MSNBC talking heads segment till after the election and then move on.

At least Mayor Pete has a moral compass, which Trump does not.

I do not discriminate against people because of their politics, their country of origin, their race, their sex, their age, or their sexual preferences.

Luckily, younger generations do this less and less.

This is a good thing not to harbor animosity against people because they do ot agree with you or act like you.

It is tolerance.

I liked Cory, and sad to see him go.

I'm still YangGang. He's got a fabulous ground game, has done well with fundraising, and I think the polls are wrong - maybe for the same reason they were wrong about Trump. A lot of his supporters have never voted before, or are/were Independents or Republicans. The DNC and MSM ignore him, but he could very well surprise a lot of people. He's authentic (not a politician), smart, visionary and has the ability to reunite our country.

I'm disgusted that the billionaires have been able to buy their way into the race, but hope their money helps to defeat Trump.

I like Yang, too. I just have not heard enough from him yet. The main 4 seem to dominate the debates. I'd rather hear more from Yang and Klobuchar and less from Steyer and Bloomberg.

"He's a president, Buttigeig is a mediocre mayor."

Fujimori was "a president", too. Not saying much. Plus, Buttigieg can spell.

If Petey gets the nomination, I'll bother to look up whether there is an i before the e or vice versa.

Until then, I don't care.

Just like I knew nothing about Cory Booker, and see, no time wasted on him!

Conversely, some of you should have boned up on Donald J. Trump before we voted him in as President Donald J. Trump!

Anyway, seeing the misspellings of President Trump's name here for over three years--no one should be throwing stones. :) Don't see any "corrections" there.

I boned up on trump many years ago and even back then to look at his face made me puke because I knew all about his shady immoral life. When he appeared backlit last week after the assassination, it was exactly like he was backlit when he ented the " boardroom with his two idiot children at either end of the judges' table. The curtains drew and he appeared like a backlit God. That alone with his pontifications made me gag. Especially when he told on TV he'd like to see a pretty contestant on her knees. That wasn't cut but there is a whole safe of salacious material only Burnett has the key to. The N word repeatedly used as well as sexual inuendos.

And we can all go to sleep tonight knowing that he is excelling at being President of the United States of America!

If I want salacious, I'll bone up on Clinton.

Gee if I only knew I could have criticized Obama's hair and hands all that time!


Fat chance.

Good thing there was plenty of policy with which to disagree and we weren't forced to harp all day long on physical traits.

A lot more Americans boned up on trump than didn't. We wish the electors had boned up on trump.

Not sure which Clinton you're referring to, but neither Bill nor Hil is running for a public office so WTP?

If you were running against trump and your life reflected ^^^^, you would get my vote. If your life also reflected true patriotism, loyalty, liberty, and sanctity I would campaign for you.

Woody, if you want to learn more about Yang, search YouTube for some of his recent Town Halls, watch his Joe Rogan interview (not recent, but very good), or just go to his website and browse all of his policy statements. The debates never gave him enough time to say much. But he always made the best of the time he was given! He's very direct!

Trump is the only candidate who had the opportunity to go to war and took the cowards way out. Been trying to make up for it with other peoples' blood ever since.

Many of us actually DID bone up on Trump. We learned that he had cheated many in his past with his mafia-like tactics. We learned that his daddy was a Nazi sympathizer. We learned that Trump's chief advisor was Roy Cohn and that ilk. We learned of his many infidelities and his failed businesses. We learned a lot from the Access Hollywood tape. Need I go on???

Go ahead.

What did you think about Barack Obama's drunken, wife beating bigamist loser of a father, a man who fathered many children he did not care for and impersonated his bosses?

What did you think about Barack Obama's heaving drinking, marijuana and cocaine use?

Need I go on?

Yet one accomplished nothing, the other, what others have failed to accomplish.

"drinking, marijuana, cocaine use...." Please cite exact sources. I take that to be gossip/hearsay.

In 8 years, Obama accomplished a great deal in terms of consistent, calm leadership and good relationships with our valued European allies. I don't care what his father did. I have read both of Obama's biographies as well as that of Michele Obama. This couple and their family provided a stellar example of moral, intelligent, and stable leadership for almost a decade.
