Donít Overthink It, Just Nominate Beto in 2020
Slate ^ | November 7, 2018 | Ben Mathis-Lilley

Posted on 11/07/2018 8:06:49 AM PST by C19fan

He did astoundingly well for a Texas Democrat. He’s already got a national profile. He’s proved he can raise a ton of money without indebting himself to corporations. His Uplifting Articulate Guy persona presents a clear alternative to Trumpism without coming across as scolding or patronizing. While he lost his Senate race, he has experience in Congress, but not so much experience that past votes will haunt him. He’s shown a rare willingness to answer tough questions. And as the clip above indicates, he has the charisma to make a live-TV F-word somehow come across as endearing and wholesome. Beto 2020—why not?

I wonder if the grievances groups in the Democratic party are pissed off so many people are pushing this no name empty suit white guy.

He’s got chipmunk teeth so the dems can pass him off as a Kennedy. He goes by Beto, which is more than enough to pass him off as Hispanic. He’s only lost once, which puts him ahead of Hillary. He’s a natural.

LOL! So now being a loser is a criteria for running a candidate for POTUS?

We need to pray now that the Dems do nominate Beto. And likewise hope that they don’t stumble upon an actual adult candidate.

Dems CAN’T nominate a hetero white guy for President again, ever. Their own fault.

Ah, yes, the wholesome guy whose mother got arrested for money laundering for a Mexican Cartel, ending up with a plea for structuring and lost her multi-million dollar family business (Charlotte’s Furniture in El Paso) as a result of IRS fines.

And his dad, who was a corrupt government official in El Paso, busted for cocaine, who turned states evidence and ended up being murdered in a hit-and-run as he was going down the street before he could testify.

Just a normal, every day, family, those O’Rourkes.

(Yes, all of this is easily available on the internet; it’s just not covered by the media.)

He’s more Irish than Lucky Charms, more wealthy than the entire Kennedy clan put together.

Heterosexual?

Irish Bob is heterosexual?

The dress and outfit he has been photographed wearing looks too well coordinated for a heterosexual guy to assemble.

You might wanna rethink that and have your gaydar recalibrated.

Trump’s nickname for Beto O’Rourke: “Bob”

Maybe “Skateboard Bob”

"...just nominate him..."


He was a paid babysitter. He played bass guitar in a band. He can ride a skateboard across a stage.
He is obviously a perfect POTUS candidate. He clearly has it ALL. What a remarkable talent.
