Is Beto O'Rourke the new Obama?


#81

The Canadian


#82

I don’t recall him ever stating he was Mexican. Where did you get this from?


#83

This guy Beta looks like a puppet going out of control.


#84

Lol. Yep he’s really gotten under your skin already.


#85

Dude is freaking out. :joy:


#86

One of the sad weird things about politics is that the more handsome/pretty candidate usually wins.

JFK beats Nixon
Reagan beats Carter
Bill Clinton beats GWBush
Obama beats McCain

Even though we love debating policy here, I have a strong feeling that a large group of voters will vote for whoever pleases their eye more. Beto is way more than a pretty face but that would go a long way to help him win or at least take a Veep spot.


#87

Yeah “connects” like a bad rash or hives! :roll_eyes:


#88

And he just barely entered the race. Can you imagine the reaction by election time (should Beto win the nomination)? Some are going to need Xanax.


#89

Since Beto is a moderate, does anyone think that he would try to cut social security and medicare while making the trump tax cuts permanent? Like Obama?


#90

Nah- he truly does have “the touch”, unlike Hillary.


#91

I can’t imagine him doing that.


#92

The Dems have moved Left. No way.


#93

Well, he could split the dem vote and have republicans make up the difference.


#94

I highly doubt it.


#95

But will he sign their bibles. Or chests.


#96

I really don’t think that Texas will go blue in 2020. Arizona might go blue in 2020, but not Texas.


#97

A tall skinny guy with a decent look but SO damn awkward at times.


#98

So tell us what you like about Beto?


#99

Even with Beto on the ticket, there is no way that Trump would lose Texas. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Dems get within 5 points tho. Hillary got within 9.

Trump also has rashes from his personal Vietnam tours.
