    Beto is not the one

    1


    O’Rourke’s deficiencies aren’t just a thin résumé and lack of policy specifics. Leadership can be demonstrated in ways other than by extensive governmental experience, and campaigns are generally won on broad themes rather than white papers. But O’Rourke has not articulated any such themes beyond generic uplift, and he has not demonstrated leadership in any other sphere.
    Of course, Obama could be criticized in very similar terms — for being an inexperienced candidate of personality and uplift, a vessel into which voters with very different preferences could pour their hopes. O’Rourke has been compared to Obama, and attracted the attention of a number of Obama operatives and supporters, for just those reasons.
    But Obama distinguished himself in one crucial way: by opposing the Iraq War from the beginning. He was able to use that fact to argue not only that he would be less-hawkish but that he would have better — and more independent — judgment not only than Hillary Clinton but than John Edwards, the good-looking Southern white male candidate of that cycle.

    Yes...beto can win the white house.

    and someone is off their meds. Alluding to democrats as reasonable people. I snorted my yogurt.

    Yes, Beto can win the White House

    That’s because, for all the sturm und drang about the evils of white men in America coming from the far left of the Democratic Party, it is not clear at all that this rhetoric reflects the feelings of the majority of the party’s voters. If most Democrats, like all reasonable people, are not going to base their vote on race or sex, then Beto’s unwillingness to self flagellate about his demographic categories may well play to his advantage.
    In fact, the demographic that might matter most for Beto is his Generation X bona fides. Other candidates, like Corey Booker, can claim Gen X status, but none so fully fulfill the Gen X attitude and experience like O’Rourke does. The videos of his punk band, like Bill Clinton’s saxophone performance on the “Arsenio Hall Show” decades ago, show a coolness, a Beat disdain for the norms. A fair observer looks at his past and his skateboarding present as effortless and cool.
    For the past half-century, the gold standard for a Democratic presidential candidate has been John F Kennedy. Young, attractive, with a burgeoning family and a strong, intelligent, and supportive wife — Beto checks off these boxes with aplomb. He checks off another Kennedy box: he’s relatively conservative or at least moderate in a field that has thus far veered to the far left faster than a greyhound chases a mechanical rabbit

    until they impose their pseudo-morality on you with increasingly onerous legislation and more big government programs designed to enhance the vibrant diversity of the amerikan experience.

    oh. Bobby O'Rourke DOES want your guns. I think I've heard something similar before.

    And the new Democrat fear-mongering mantra.... "We're all gonna die in 12 years".... if, of course, the rats are not elected to control all branches of government, that is. Funny, but I didn't notice that the rats' control from 2008 to 2016...eight long years.... had any effect on globull warming, rising sea levels or CO2 emissions. Must have missed that. The only change I noticed was that they managed to screw the economy, the military and our national defense .... while importing more terrorists and welfare queens.

    Robert Francis is just another commie puppet stooge. His main current string-handler is Becky Bond, after all....

    Top Beto O'Rourke adviser is socialist who slammed Saul Alinsky as a moderate
