“We’ve got to wake up as a party,” Buttigieg said in closing statements at tonight’s Democratic Primary Debate in Nevada.. “Most Americans don’t see where they fit if they’ve got to choose between a socialist who thinks that capitalism is the root of all evil and a billionaire who thinks money ought to be the root of all power.”
“Let’s put forward somebody who’s actually a Democrat,” Buttigieg said to applause. “We shouldn’t have to choose between one candidate who wants to burn this party down and another candidate who wants to buy this party out. We can do better.”
Politico reported on Bloomberg’s woeful prepartion for Wednesday night’s democratice debate in Nevada, saying “You’re about to go on a treacherous journey. You’ve hired an army of knowledgeable experts who know the dangerous twists and turns in the road, who know where the brigands lurk, who have been told for weeks exactly what perils await. What do you do? In all likelihood, you do not venture out on this journey by tossing out the map of the terrain and wrapping a blindfold around your head. But that’s what Michael Bloomberg did Wednesday night.”
