Beto’s 2020 “Destiny” Story Has Democratic Voters CRINGING

If Beto wants to win over the middle, he’ll need to tone it down with the “mysticism”.

Beto O'Rourke

With only a few big names left to officially announce their candidacy in 2020, Beto O’Rourke has jumped headfirst into the fray…but his reasons why are concerting voters.

Robert Francis O’Rourke, who goes by the Latino-voter-friendly “Beto”, has long been considered a bit of an outlier in the political scene.  His youth and vigor allowed him to stage a number stunts during his failed Texas senate campaign in which O’Rourke skateboarded both around a Whataburger parking lot and onstage at a rally.

His “will-he, won’t-he” wait on deciding to run for the Oval Office is now over, and voters are wondering why it took so long for Beto to commit.

He has answered those questions in an interview with Vanity Fair, and voters are a bit dumfounded.

The wide-ranging interview is the cover story of the latest edition of the magazine, with the 46-year-old boldly declaring he was “just born to do this”.

That’s a bold statement from a man who couldn’t steal Ted Cruz’s Senate seat just months ago.

It gets stranger.

The Vanity Fair piece, written by Joe Hagan, seemed to echo the fawning tone of much of the media coverage that followed his failed bid to unseat Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz last fall.

Hagan, who previously penned a similarly photographed and written profile of another Democrat, former presidential candidate John Edwards, wrote in the new piece: “For O’Rourke, what followed was a near-mystical experience,” referring to his entry into politics.

Voters keen on Beto will need to keep an eye on how his campaign handles the off-putting, “mystical” elements of his “destiny” style piece.

This isn’t the sort of reputation that you want to build in the infancy of your campaign.  One funny Saturday Night Live bit about Beto going to roadside psychics or consulting a crystal ball, and this campaign is sunk.

Save conservative media!

Elizabeth Warren Not Interested In Getting Involved In Sanders-Clinton Feud, Says ‘I’m Not Going There’

Published

on

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has fallen behind both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the polls, which is not a great sign this close to the Iowa caucuses, but at the end of the day, it’s still anyone’s game. With the primary so close, many in the Democratic Party have turned on each other and gone after one another in verbal jousting and mudslinging attacks, chief among them Warren and Sanders, with Warren accusing Sanders of saying he didn’t believe a woman could be president. While the smoke is just starting to clear on that a bit, the feud between Bernie and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is still alive, and Warren is refusing to get involved in the fray. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: Elizabeth Warren tried to skirt questions about Hillary Clinton’s claim “nobody likes” her rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders. “I’m not going there,” the Massachusetts senator, 70, told CBS Friday morning. Clinton, 72, in an interview published this week by the Hollywood Reporter, blasted the Vermont senator, her former 2016 Democratic primary opponent, as “a career politician,” saying she felt “so bad” that “people got sucked into” him. “He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” the former secretary of state told the outlet. “Bernie and I have worked together for a very long time, and we continue to do so. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this,” Warren said before turning to the topic of impeachment. Warren has obviously realized that her attacks against Bernie backfired on her in a big way so now she’s trying to avoid getting pulled into another battle that could potentially hurt her chances…

Brand New Poll Reveals That A Plurality Of Americans On Board With Soleimani Killing

Published

on

Liberals all across the country displayed their true colors by coming out in support of a radical Islamic terrorist, one who killed an untold number of American soldiers and horribly oppressed his own people in Iran after President Trump ordered the drone strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani. These folks despise the president so much that they took the side of a terrorist, strangely seeming to believe that their opinions on this would reflect the feelings of most Americans. A new poll proves that is totally not the case at all. In fact, a plurality of Americans support the president’s decision to take out Soleimani. Here’s more on the poll from The Washington Examiner: The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll released Friday found 41% of Americans approved of Trump authorizing Soleimani’s death while 30% of Americans opposed the authorization. While more Americans supported the killing than opposed it, 59% of Americans disapproved of Trump’s handling of foreign policy overall. The poll comes three weeks after the United States killed the Iranian terrorist leader. The strike came in response to Iranian-backed militias attacking the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. Trump described the killing as a “no bullshit” mission. Iran responded by firing over a dozen missiles at bases housing U.S. troops. The Iranian strikes injured 11 Americans but resulted in no deaths. Once again, this poll demonstrates that a lot of individuals in the Democratic Party are on the wrong side of an issue, led there by their own desire to see President Trump impeached and removed from office. In short, they have become so used to hating the president and attacking him over every move he makes that it has become their default reaction, even when he does something good, to criticize him and oppose him. Will this…
