Beto, come home. Texas needs you.

Beto, come home. Texas needs you.
Houston Chronicle, Aug 10, 2019, Editorial Board

<snip>

So Beto, if you’re listening: Come home. Drop out of the race for president and come back to Texas to run for senator. The chances of winning the race you’re in now are vanishingly small. And Texas needs you.

Two years ago, you ran an inspiring race against Sen. Ted Cruz. Sure, you lost. No shame in that. Texas hasn’t elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994. You chipped away at a wall that wasn’t quite ready to come down. You showed it’s possible.

For too long, Texas officials have had only to consider how far to the right they must go to stay in office. No one is asking whether there might be a good idea or two on the Democratic side of things. We need you, Beto, because Texas badly needs that other view of the world, those differing opinions. You’ve brought us closer to having real, competing parties than any other candidate has, and than any candidate on our radar could.

Dear author:  there is no need to ask if there is a good idea or two on the democrat side because it’s pretty clear - nose on your face clear - that there are no such ideas.

Texas needs IRISH BOB like it needs another Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón.

Sorry....the bloom is already off of this rose.  His true colors are shining brightly through.

Texas does not need the skate-boarding, twitching, arm-waving, table-jumping overgrown teenager, Robert Francis.
Principles matter. Words matter.
