Beto is as awful as they come

Beto Man O'Rourke announced for president. I liked this part, where he said, "The interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater. They will either consume us, or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States."

What in the heck is he talking about?

The crisis in our economy? Unemployment has not been lower on the last 50 years. Pay is rising faster than inflation, and the biggest rise is among those in the bottom tier of wages.

The crisis in our democracy? Only that Democrats have not yet accepted President Donald John Trump's historic 30-state victory in 2016.

Our climate? Jeepers, we still have four seasons, except on Hawaii but it has been that way for centuries.

Piers Morgan said of Beto's announcement, "As US presidential campaign messages go, it at least had the benefit of being uniquely depressing."

This Fake Hispanic is married to a billionaire's daughter, but he is absolutely clueless about the nation he wishes to serve.

I get that you cannot run against an incumbent president by saying everything is fine, but there has to be some connection to reality.

Speaking of being disconnected to reality, Vanity Fair has fallen in love with him. That is not necessarily helpful. In a Drudge-linked piece with O'Rourke and his children, ages 8, 10, and 12, the magazine gt a little too chummy for Beto's own good.

Vanity Fair reported:
And it will all work out — if he can just keep his eyes on the road. “Motherfuckers!” he says after darting into a busy intersection while ferrying the brood home from school that day. Then he catches himself: “Sorry, kids.”
And there was this passage:
When O’Rourke blurted out to Oprah that he’d make a decision on whether to run or not “before the end of this month,” the answer surprised even him. “I did not intend to say that,” he tells me. On the flight home from New York, O’Rourke learned that Trump was coming to El Paso. Amy was reading Becoming, by Michelle Obama, absorbing the former First Lady’s account of her trials living through a toxic presidential race with her husband. By the time the O’Rourkes touched down at El Paso International Airport, Amy’s stomach was in knots. “She was kind of pissed at me when we got home,” recalls O’Rourke. “Almost like ‘You fucker.’ ”
His is going to be an interesting and entertaining campaign

  1. Given his past background you just know he did some "good drugs"... he is proof that it affects the mind in strange and terrible ways.

    What the heck has he done that anyone would think he has leadership ability or any kind of background where he created jobs? Of course being a Democrat you don't have to have qualifications to any political position so long as you are willing to be a sock puppet.

    I wonder if Beto will have his true master out of the shadows as Obama did with Valeri Jarrett...

    1. Jar Jar was only an intermediary. Puppet master Soros remained in the shadows.

    2. Whether or not it was Soros, the Obimessiah was clearly a post turtle from day one.

    2. Napoleon Dynamite reminded me of a kid I knew in High school-he went on to be a Green Beret and a Smoke Jumper..
      Beto never left High School-like Obama..

    3. Beto boy ain't never growed up. He's still wet behind his ears, and he's got no sense.

  3. Sounds like Radhida Tlaib can be his motherf’n speechwriter.

    The only qualification for the democrats is that they are socialists and minorities - even fake minorities like O’Rourke.

    1. Robert Francis O'Rourke is genetically male, but most definitely not a man.

      Thus, I always refer to him as " Betty".

    2. Must be from the soy he ingested.

  5. He's asking supporters for gas money so he can drive a minibus through Iowa. How come he's not bicycling?

    1. p.s. I hope someone is saving AOC and Beto's predictions on climate. Cause there won't be mass deaths in 12 years.

    2. Well, at least not caused by ‘climate change’. We can only hope that there aren’t going to be any ‘mass deaths’ at the hands of anyone that purports to be human, either.

  6. I think we should be very concerned. When he ran against Cruz he *almost* took Texas. Granted, Cruz was hurt by his run against Trump, but it was way too close for comfort. Beto's campaign was all feel good messages and fluff. I couldn't figure out what he stood for through his campaign messages but the media in Texas was presenting him like the second coming (OK, I exaggerate there, but listening to the liberal Dallas news stations was quite depressing). Like AOC, it seems like someone who shouldn't have a chance, but then suddenly they are elected. Do not brush him aside. He is a threat. He punches all the right mindless buttons.

    1. Blotto had numerous advantages last year. He was running against Ted Cruz, who rubs a lot of people theoretically on his side the wrong way. On the other side, the only politician the left hates more than Cruz is Donald Trump himself, so they were willing to shovel $80 million into his campaign. The hagiography you're describing? He got the same treatment in the press nationwide, giving him glowing coverage and hiding anything that might be a negative. And it was a Democratic year, and they've wanted to win in Texas for a generation. So they went all in on Blotto, and came up short.

      A lot of those advantages will not be available to him in a presidential primary. Unless he wins, he's not running against Trump; he's running against the rest of the Democratic field. He's not going to get tens of millions of dollars from California Dems to run against Kamala Harris, and the particular supporters of other candidates in the press aren't going to give him the same uncritical support they gave him when he was trying to slay the dragon Cruz. All the skeletons they did their best to hide last year won't stay hidden this time.

      And he DID lose to Ted Cruz, even with almost everything else going his way. Some people aren't going to forgive him for that, or all the money he spent while losing, not when some of it might have gone to other candidates who would've used it. Bill Nelson, for example.

      All the cursing is like biden. Thinks it makes him sound like a man.

  7. Beto is "feel good! Hate Trump now, he's bad, but Feel Good with Beto to the rescue!"

    He's more vulgar, but white, male, young, JFK like -- with so many women in the running, the "women's vote" will be spread thin. Beto might well eke out a plurality. Also a very possible VP on any woman's ticket.

    I'd guess he does very little bad-mouthing of the leading women.

  8. Married to a billionaire's daughter?? I bet he doesn't know the cost of a gallon of milk. I also bet no one in the media will ask.

    1. Beto made his money the old-fashioned way - he married it. Just like John Kerry and John McCain.

  9. He's as gaffe-prone, clownish, disconnected from ordinary people, and a trust fund brat like little Justin Trudeau. Plus Beto's father took in large payments from undisclosed sources (money laundering),so a corrupt family as well. Typical Democrat.

  10. Beto is the candidate for people who think Barack Obama was overqualified. He's not even an empty suit - he's like an empty pair of gym shorts.

  11. When an empty-headed Leftist, like this dope, speaks and nothing but toys come out of his mouth, just remember we're not in his target audience. What's outrageous, vulgar and intellectually hollow to us comes across as the Ten Commandments to the drooling, mentally-defective idiots who make us his base.

  12. That passage from Vanity Fair, "Amy was reading Becoming, by Michelle Obama" reminded me- that book isn't about Michael becoming Michelle, so don't bother with it. It's just more angry fiction.

  13. I saw this 'fake Hispanic' idiot squander a lot of money to lose to a vulnerable candidate in granted a red state. How he can vault from Senate loser to President is something I can't figure out. I just hope the MSM is exaggerating his, and other socialists like him, chance to win the general election. MAGA 2020!
