She was definitely a questionable choice and that was said at the time.

As for Jared.
I'd say a lawyer that is used to making deals with millions of dollars at stake is a reasonable choice.

He has also done a damn good job.

Is he the place holder for every unknown position because I have heard ambassador to China and something else that Mayor Pete was supposed to doing in the Biden Administration.

So what are Bernie and Tulsi getting since every other candidate is getting a position?

A check mark in the right box is more important than a solid resume.
Unfortunately it will also likely do some damage.


Psssht! This is the left we're talking about. A checkmark in the right box is a solid resume.

Pete Buttigieg Vows to Fight Racial, Economic, Environmental Injustice in Department of Transportation

This is just silly, honestly
This goes on in both parties
Elaine Chao was Chair of the Maritime Commission under Reagan, Then Sec. Of Labor under W. , Now Sec. Of Transportation under Trump.
These departments have almost always been headed by politically connected appointees, rather than by the best qualified

Edit to add:
By silly, I mean this thread

BLM opposes Mayor Pete!


In a statement Tuesday, South Bend-based Black Lives Matter leader Jordan Geiger said: “[W]e urge the rejection of our former mayor Pete Buttigieg, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Rhode Island, Governor Gina Raimondo for Transportation Secretary or any other cabinet position.” . . .


It didn't mention who they support, but they definitely are opposed!

Pete will probably try to ban transporting guns across state lines and mandating vaccinations before one can fly. I know at least one airline was already talking about doing that but I can see him trying to do things like this after watching him in the debates.

Wasn't Buttigieg going to China? Little did anyone know that outside of being a Major for a some city he is also a transportation expert...Good job Biden in not playing cronyism.

Yeah. That is my fear also. Biden wants to make a show of inclusion. I am just not sure that placing people in office just to appear open and not bigoted, may cause damage, unless they are mere figureheads and decorations.

Just FYI, that name is a bit difficult to pronounce so I'll help you out.

Sounds kinda like booty-gig.

You're welcome.

Which is German for Butt Fiddler.

No... it honestly is!



Bwagaha I just called up my "Butt Fiddler" friends and gave those types a good chuckle!
Those darn Butt Fiddlers gave me the ok to use that term.

Pete has an impressive background, and I liked him right away. He’s a great communicator; I also feel he should’ve gotten a better position.

I think Biden is making a mistake.

He should place people in positions were they can bring more to the administration than a rainbow.

He thinks that by bringing in women, people of color, and homosexuals, it makes him look inclusive.

If it is wrong to prevent a person from being chosen for a position, just because of their race, color, religion, or sexual orientation, then being given a position just because of those same reasons, is equally wrong.

In my opinion.

I would hope Pete was chosen because he is highly intelligent, capable, and a good communicator.

Nobody knows what’s in Joe Bidens’ head, including Joe 🤣

He's an old straight white male Christian. Don't forget that they've been playing up the Roman Catholic angle in the press lately.

They say that he didn't manage to fix the pot holes in South Bend.

Looks like Biden, or rather the DNC, bought off support for pretty much every Democrat to get on board.

DNC: "Yeah, we know Biden is an idiot, definitely racist, probably a rapist according to multiple accounts, but if you keep your mouth shut and play along we'll get you a cabinet spot."

Pete Buttigieg is well qualified to be Transportation Secretary --- plus --- he's so Kennedyesque.

So, where's Bernie? LIzzie?

And if so ... are you familiar with American politics at all? Are you implying that appointmetns aren't political rewards?

Did you apply the same standard to any other incoming Administration?

The people of South Bend don't want him back butt maybe they can get their roads fixed now. He didn't do anything while he was there.
