If I were a leading democrat candidate I would be worried about this. Bobby O’Rourke has got a great record – arrest record that is: DUI; leaving the scene; securities fraud; campaign violations; running under an assumed ethnicity ...the perfect Democrat presidential candidate.

The guy married money – he’s an empty suit; though I’m not sure he owns a suit. Make that, the guy’s an empty shirt.

IMHO, he came dangerously close to beating Cruz.  A clear indication that the demographics in this country have changed.  I think either he or Castro will get the nomination.  Both will appeal to the younger generation and Castro especially to the Hispanic community. 

So ... what is Trump doing to attract new and/or younger voters??  Anyone??  Unless he can drum up some more voters, I don't see him winning in 2020.

You're right,  Trump is not going to win in 2020.    And the reason is similar to why Beto came so close to defeating Cruz.   For better or for worse, Cruz is a polarizing figure.   Gov. Abbott won re-election easily,  thereby disproving the notion that the problem is "demographics".   Polarizing candidates inspire the opposition to get out their votes by appealing to fear, bigotry, tribalism and caricature.

Ugh, that video. I can't stand it when people use hand gestures in time with what they're saying. Someone on Twitter suggested, in light of all the movement, he should have stopped taking the Ritalin when he reached adulthood.

His wife looks like the typical ugly left wing nut job from Austin.  Sadly, there's 200,000 clones in Austin just like her.

Good point!  We should run Mittzy again, he's not polarizing.  That Trump is "polarizing" might be how he got elected (over Kasich, even) in the first place.

And just think.... those are the things we know about.  Much like with Obama, I'm betting that there is much more below the surface that has yet to be revealed about Twitchy Beto's real record. 

Just saw Trump ask "Is he crazy" re: those hand movements...lololol.   Nah.  Not crazy.  Just Democrat.    Oh wait...

Robert Francis says he was "born to do this." Then why he did leave his family for a month and traveling around the country approaching strangers to ask it he should run?

I wonder if the rich people he nannied for after he graduated college think he's "born to do this."

Only for the reason of Trump / Pecker/ Stone  2016 Primary Slime job.   You'd be surprised how many here in Texas bought off on the Orange Goon's "Lyin' Ted" meme.

This article is a must-read. With his trespassing, DUI, trying to take the property of poor Hispanics to enrich himself and his FIL in El Paso, insider trading while a freshman in Congress, and campaign finance violations of taking illegal foreign money while running in Texas, and being the beneficiary of illegal voting, coupled with his depression and lack of accomplishments, he should be laughed off the political stage. But he's not.

Yeah, Trump was referencing Beto's jerky ways.... and his hand movements too...lololol.  This...

is the 'real' Beto.   A really bad bet for America....



Just another socialist/commie crook.   And we already have a plethora of them in DC.   Sure as hell don't need any more.

Trump won because Hillary was such an awful alternative.   If the Dems had nominated just about anyone else,  they'd now occupy the White House.

Unfortunately many of the refugees from $hithole blue states come to Texas and try to make it like the hell they fled.
We have one success in reversing that trend.

Fauxcohontus was here long enough to get a law degree, fake her ancestry when applying to the Bar, and teach at Texas prior to moving on to where she felt more comfortable in Massachusetts.

Now I want Beto to follow Liz's lead, and skateboard his way to some place that likes him a lot, maybe California.

You bet.  Think of all the folks on this board who held their noses to vote for Trump because the alternative was worse.

What makes you think that the same situation won't face us again in 2020?

If the RL manages to melt down the economy between now and then.... it will all be moot.  It worked in 2008 for them.  And.... inundating the border with hundreds of thousands (or millions) of illegals might just do the trick for em this time.

From the NYT article:

"A young Beto O’Rourke. In New York, he felt unfulfilled by jobs as a nanny on the Upper West Side, at his uncle’s tech business, moving fine art and in publishing."

The only thing mentioned in Robert Francis' bio is the tech job. The implication was that he was involved in some great tech company when he in fact worked for his uncle and failed at that, as he failed at everything in NYC.

I guess Gringo O'Rourke didn't take the hint from his loss to Ted Cruz.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

You didn't think he would, did you?  There is a lure to those fat monetary kisses from Rat oligarchs.

Much of that campaign cash (OPM) will, of course, find a new home in the pockets of a few friends and family members.

Robert Francis's mother had a furniture store that was investigated by the IRS for some unusual cash transactions. Laundering money? So Bobby comes by his corruption "honestly."

Except for the fact that he won the GOP nomination.  He won over a true conservative, moderates and DEMS  The DEMS were just foolish and arrogant enough to buy into believing that Hillary was unbeatable.  IMHO, Anyone except Kasich or Jeb would have beaten her.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

And lets not forget the drugs that were found in his dad's government vehicle that a police office flushed down the toilet.
