Of all the places in Washington, Beto ORourke chose to run to the Lincoln Memorial. Jogging through an early winter storm in the capital the week following his loss in the race for U.S. Senate, ORourke found himself, gimpy knee and all, running up the steps of the majestic monument to the 16th president. There, he wrote in a Medium post, he paused to read the words of Lincolns Second Inaugural Address. Suddenly, his knee stopped hurtingas if Honest Abes words had a special healing power (but maybe it just needed to fully warm up, he wrote).

I didn’t know Beto was a Republican.
An Irish Beto only goes so far.
Does he own an orangutan?
I asked about this before but didn’t get a response... I dont watch much cable news, so I have a lame but sincere question... How does one pronounce Beto? Is it BAY-TOE, BET-TOE, BEE-TOE, BET-TOO, BEE-TOO or some other? (Totally serious question. Please no jokey Its pronounced LOSER type responses)
Oh My Goodness!!! Its the second coming of JFK!!! ( Im already sick of the fawning gushiness of Big Media!!)
It’s pronounced “Drunken Irish Bob”.
If the lose is ashamed of it’s name don’t humor it by letting it make up one itself.
I didnt know Lincoln had a criminal record like Beto does, either.
I knew Lincoln.
Lincoln was my friend.
You, non-Senator, Robert Francis O’Rourke are no Lincoln.
If he is going to be compared to a Lincoln, I guess Abraham Lincoln makes a better analogy than Benjamin Lincoln, since Abe was elected to the House of Representatives but was defeated when he tried to win a Senate seat. Benjamin Lincoln lost Charleston—if Beto is the nominee in 2020 he would probably carry Charleston (Obama carried it both times).
Is Beto as goofy as John F. Kerry?
So hes going to start a civil war.
Also like Lincoln, in that his election would likely lead to a civil war
John Wilkes Booth! Pick up the white courtesy phone.
Be to should team up with Crazy Eyes Cortez.
Naw, it looks like the retarded one. Robert, Jr., right?
Not to worry. If he Bevo does have a chance I foresee an unfortunate Arkancide in his future.
“So hes going to start a civil war.”
And will Robert Francis O win the presidency as a regional candidate with 39 percent of the vote?
What strikes me about liberals writing about President Lincoln and his monument in Washington - they almost never mention he was a white supremacist. And I wonder why not in this age of speaking about speaking truth to power?
