 Failing ‘White Privilege’ Candidate Beto O’Rourke Slammed for Suggesting Stacey Abrams as Running Mate
Posted By Andrew Stiles On May 13, 2019

Beto O'Rourke, the heiress husband and failed Senate candidate who briefly launched a career as a pensive travel blogger before deciding to run for president, is struggling to stay relevant in the Democratic primary. In a recent poll of primary voters in New Hampshire, O'Rourke is approaching "statistically insignificant" territory. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is surging, while THE POLITICO is running feature stories on "Beto's Long History of Failing Upward."

Given the circumstances, O'Rourke was asked a rather ridiculous question during a recent campaign stop in Bedford, N.H. Would he, if nominated, select "one of the amazing woman candidates" as a running mate? As Beto rightly pointed out, the very notion of him discussing possible running mates at this point was "a little bit presumptuous." He went on to suggest that, in the unlikely event that he does win the nomination, he probably would select a female rival as a running mate, or perhaps "some other extraordinary woman who's not running right now," such as Stacey Abrams.

The only place she would make a good running mate would be from a lunatic asylum.  Put her in the lead and let her ram trees and knock them over. :whistle:

"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

Hands Down, Biden has sucked all the air out of the Irish Bob and Kamala Harris bubble.  They are scrambling to re-energize their failing campaigns.

Failing ‘White Privilege’ Candidate Beto O’Rourke Slammed for Suggesting Stacey Abrams as Running Mate

Beto O'Rourke, the heiress husband and failed Senate candidate who briefly launched a career as a pensive travel blogger before deciding to run for president, is struggling to stay relevant in the Democratic primary. In a recent poll of primary voters in New Hampshire, O'Rourke is approaching "statistically insignificant" territory. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is surging, while THE POLITICO is running feature stories on "Beto's Long History of Failing Upward."

Given the circumstances, O'Rourke was asked a rather ridiculous question during a recent campaign stop in Bedford, N.H. Would he, if nominated, select "one of the amazing woman candidates" as a running mate? As Beto rightly pointed out, the very notion of him discussing possible running mates at this point was "a little bit presumptuous." He went on to suggest that, in the unlikely event that he does win the nomination, he probably would select a female rival as a running mate, or perhaps "some other extraordinary woman who's not running right now," such as Stacey Abrams.

Abrams, the failed George gubernatorial candidate who continues to threaten the fabric of our democracy by refusing to concede defeat in that race, is unlikely to be flattered by O'Rourke's hypothetical offer. She has already refused, according to reports, an actual offer from former Vice President Joe Biden to join his ticket as the VP nominee, a proposal that one of Abrams' own aides denounced as "exploitative." The self-declared governor of Georgia has even left open the possibility of entering the Democratic primary as a presidential candidate, telling the ladies of The View, "I think you don't run for second place."

I heard that Robert Francis may "relaunch" his campaign. He wants a do-over. What a loser.

What is a relaunch?: An admission that you failed miserably your first launch.

To use an old expression, it is not over until the fat lady sings.  In this case, it will not be Stacey Abrams but HR Clinton.  Talk about sucking the air out of campaigns, when she announces, half these candidates fall off the edge of the earth immediately.  Another quarter perhaps before the Iowa caucus.

I just hope enough stay in to dillute Comrade Muppet's take from the clown show.  I see him coming in 2nd or 3rd, but not 1st.  Thank God he is as old as dirt, so I do not see him making another bid in 4 years.
