Posted on 11/08/2018 9:06:42 AM PST by C19fan
Beto ORourke dodged a bullet. The Texas congressman came dangerously close to beating Ted Cruz on Tuesday.
Lest his groupies wallow for long in defeat, they should know theres a lot for them to like about his loss: No getting bogged down in the drudge-work of a freshman senator in the minority or obligation to fulfill his duty to serve out his term.
And, to ORourkes credit, there was no blowout, a fate that would have extinguished his star. Indeed, he showed an unapologetic liberal could compete and almost win in Texas.

Texas voters rejected him.
He is finished.
He will not run for office again.
“Admitted Loser” is a recommendation, now?
Well - good luck.
Hillary and Biden are going to love you to death.
Empty suit. Again.
A figurehead, as was Obama. Merely another face behind which the cynical syndicate of Maoists hide, while they continue their mission to destroy America.
Not being a Senator is a big help. He can run with no record to attack.
Sure why not he has accomplished as much as any dim..honestly most of them are interchangeable.
This whole run was just the next step toward a 2020 run. Hence the odd “national” feel of his senate run.
Because we know this is the route that ones like JFK and LBJ took, wasn’t it?
Some are arguing that he had no intention of winning. His goal was to get the infrastructure set up for 2020. This really does explain a lot of weird stuff, not least of which was the tone and words in his “concession” speech.
At least JFK and LBJ won their Senate seats.
White guy but hispanic on the inside. Gift of the gab. What more do you need other than to read my post on Beto and Suburban Housewives?
His backing of a Dem-proposed semi-auto ban and support for illegal immigration were not winning proposals for a statewide race in Texas. But were meant to push him forward in the Bernie wing of the national party.
If Beto cannot win Texas, with its liberal cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Round Rock, San Marcos, Austin, El Paso, and Fort Worth, Beto cannot win in America.
Cruz soft-pedaled bob frank’s DUI and leaving the scene incident.
If martinezhauntas runs, his fake “latino” credentials will also come up.
Put a fork in him or butter him — he is done and toast.
Without vote fraud, it could have been a long double digit loss. Bless the Patriots who got out to vote
Notice how the presstitutes neglected to point out ad nauseum, as they did about Romney and Trump, about Paco’s wife being the daughter of a very, very, very rich man - instead, trying to portray him as a regular kind-of-Hispanic regular guy.
He is missing the main feature of the Kennedy’s. Having sex with women not their wife and kicking them to the curb or offing them.
