Who rejects the most popular guy to ever be elected to the Oval Office? After all, Joey Demento supposedly got over 81 million votes, so clearly he can help any Democrat candidate win.
Well, except Terry McAuliffe; the Democrats’ gubernatorial candidate in Virginia who got his white buttcheeks soiled by Youngkin.
Apparently Texas Gubernatorial candidate Beto “Fake Mexican” O’Rourke paid attention. Thus, according to this report, O’Rourke declined to invite President Joe Biden to campaign alongside him.
O’Rourke said his campaign is “not going to be about anyone from outside of our state,” when asked by CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” whether he would welcome Biden to Texas to help him campaign. When pressed for a second time whether he’d want Biden to visit the state, he again declined to extend an invitation.
“This campaign in Texas is not going to be about Joe Biden. It’s not going to be about Donald Trump. It’s not going to be about anyone from outside of our state. This is going to be about the people of Texas and what the people of Texas want,” O’Rourke said. “I’m focused on Texas and on my fellow Texans. Those are the people most important to me. There’s no politician, there’s no other person from outside of this state who can help change the course of this election, for better or for worse.”
Of course, Biden relied on help for Beto during his campaign. Talk about the blind leading the blind. Or shall I say the demented leading the demented.
A kindler, gentler, non-partisan O’Rourke, eh? I’m not buying it.
Expect many Democrats to present themselves as reasonable. But O’Rourke is no Senator Christen Sinema, the surprise Arizona Democrat who has been far more pragmatic, ergo less idiotic than expected.
Instead, fully expect O’Rourke’s crazy side to resurface. Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz aren’t the only reasons Beto lost his last efforts to win an election. Truth be told, Beto defeated himself. Because his own words and actions came back to haunt him.
In fact, when it comes to the 2020 election, Beto bowed out long before Democrats chose Biden for the Big Cheat. His previous stomping from Ted Cruz was still too fresh it seemed.
Of course, Beto made some pretty questionable choices along the way. For example, he once promised to “grab guns by force,” vowing to go from door to door to take away firearms if he were elected president. Clearly, Beto’s own state wouldn’t tolerate such nonsense. I mean, this is Texas, no one is taking our guns.
Unfortunately, Beto even tried to use a mass shooting in El Paso to revive his campaign. The loser was polling at 5%. Thus, he had zero chances of beating Trump.
At least twenty people died and another 26 were injured in the tragic mass shooting at an El Paso Walmart. The bodies weren’t even cold when Beto decided this could be his ticket to getting on the ballot.
Here’s what I wrote at the time:
For months, conservatives and liberals agree, Beto’s been on his way out. His fundraising is stagnant. Yet, Beto burns through democrat dollars faster than Joe Biden at the strip club.
In fact, O’Rourke is only polling around 5% nationally. And while he brought in 3.6M last quarter, he spent $5.3M. Funny how politicians find ways to spend more than they have. But money isn’t Beto’s only problem.
Remember when Trump showed up in El Paso during midterms and Beto was toast? Well, that added a whole new layer to Beto’s losses. And as I recently pointed out:
After his failed bid for Senator, unsettling news alerted us to Beto’s dark side.
In addition to his crazy days as a hacker in the Cult of the Dead Cow, O’Rourke wrote several disturbing stories and detailed his dreams of running over children with a car. Even liberal voters have a hard time looking past all that craziness. Especially when O’Rourke funneled more than $100k into his wife’s company. If Beto were a smart man, he’d cut his losses now.
He did cut his losses, but the past two years, Beto’s wondered if he could still pull off a presidential run. To which I say, “if at first you don’t succeed, lose and lose again.”
