“......Expect there to be plenty about growing up with twin brother Joaquin on San Antonio’s west side, the Harvard-educated sons of well-known La Raza leader Rosie Castro, a firebrand matriarch of the political family. Joaquin, a Texas legislator, was elected this month to a seat in Congress. As for Julian, he says he intends to run for reelection as mayor. But some Democrats see him as a future star of the party — a future candidate for governor and, possibly, president some day.

Castro’s speech to the national convention inevitably attracted comparisons with Barack Obama, whose national profile was launched with a speech to the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Obama wrote an autobiography, Dreams From My Father, when he was 33. Thirteen years later, he was president.

As for Julian Castro, political junkies in Texas are looking forward to the prospects that he could run for governor in 2018 or 2022. The dream matchup would be Castro against George P. Bush, son of former Gov. Jeb Bush and nephew of President George W. Bush. (George P has filed papers in Austin in preparation to run for office, probably state land commissioner in two years) Whatever happens, it looks like Bush and Castro are in Texas’ political future. How about this: an all-Texas showdown between the two as the Republican and Democratic nominees for president 2024?”

So he’s going to name his book “My Struggle”, then?

Here we go again. Another minority politician emerging out of nowhere, with scant life or political experience, “pens” an autobiography as a prelude to a run for President.

Anyone who dares oppose him will be considered a racist/bigot/whatever.

Once the Dems hit on a formula, they tend to stick with it.

This guy is going to be the next multicultural firebrand to unify all the special interests.

First, we will probably get Corey booker from NJ, who politics aside seems like a pretty decent guy.

OK notice the pattern. This is the way RAT politicians get huge money exchanges (such as from unions). Books sale were never so so good.

This Castro has been mentioned by some as the “token minority” democrats plan to run in 2016 to replace Obama (white guys are so 20th century after all). I guess if he ends up in Fort Marcy Park before then we'll know Hillary plans to run, the Clinton's aren't going to make the mistake of underestimating the “token minority” again....

Easily the most depressing news I’ve heard since the cataclysm 9 days ago. You can count on the MSM to double and triple down on an extended Obama-esque orgy of reportage about this latest Obama clone. I just KNEW his appearance at the Dem convention was a trial balloon, but I hoped it would prove to be a lead one , because I assumed Obama would be defeated on Nov. 6. If this guy’s star starts rising it will be merely because the MSM wants it to be so: his policies will prove to be Obama’s in microcosm,and technically there will be NO way ANY of Zero’s policies will be successful over the next four years.Which is why OBAMA SHOULD NEVER
HAVE BEEN ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. Just look what it ushered in: a SECOND TERM for Obama, AND a dynamic where a guy like this can now legitimately looked at as a “feasible”
prospect for even higher office. They are REALLY counting on the Hispanic vote being decisive again-—meanwhile, the de-balled Establishment GOP keeps fretting about Hispanic “outreach”. The ongoing career of Mr. Castro will provide
a good barometer of just what a lost cause Hispanic outreach is for anyone but the Dems.
