Beto O’Rourke: Remove Confederate Plaque from Texas Capitol

Failed U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) said Tuesday that he supports the immediate removal of a Confederate plaque from the Texas State Capitol.
Responding to Rep. Eric Johnson’s (D-TX) tweet voicing support for the removal of the “Children of the Confederacy Creed” plaque, O’Rourke tweeted: “I’m with Eric on this one. Take it down today.”

In one quick move, the failed one has convinced the people of Texas to never vote him into office.

He is working for the West and East coasts votes now.

Nacho President is planning his 2020 run....But he just lost TX electoral votes.  The man is a dolt

Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

Some reporter needs to ask Beto what he found objectionable in that plaque.

No one will ask Robert Francis that question. If this puke runs, I will enjoy him becoming Nacho President.
Principles matter. Words matter.
