    Typical politician, say anything, right or wrong to get in the media

    Look in Houston where Sylvester Turner and Dora, the Explorer had daily televised press conferences with NOTHING to say.

    At what point does Beto's father in law say, "Enough is enough, go get a job"

    • I've never considered Beto particularly "dangerous." He does personify "dumb and weak" though.

    His name is O'Rourke. He is just mad because he always has a cough, and now even LeBron looks at him weird.

    My neighbor is a DR. He talked to me yesterday about all the states that opened early and the predictions we'll see a spike in infections 2 weeks from May 4.

    He said he assured his patients it isn't going to happen and I think he's right.

    Just curious, Georgia opened 4-5 weeks ago. I assume if they would have seen a "spike" CNN would have been all over that crap considering its their back yard. I haven't heard a peep.

    Edit: I couldn't figure out how to copy and paste the table, but new cases in Georgia are actually declining since it reopened on 4/30. Oh how I know the libs wanted cases to double.

    I consider him dangerous politically because there are enough women who are charmed by his feminist personna. They are incredibly shallow and his showing against Cruz should be a wake-up call because THIS IS TEXAS and I never would have believed he would have garnered that many votes.

    Virtue signaling feminism is a drug and a way to appear to be good and progressive. It's style without any responsibility; anarchy without any accountability.

    Beto got a crap-ton of money from limousine liberals out of state. Coupled with Ted's early dismissive attitude towards the race it gave BobFrank a lot of early momentum that Ted ended up having to really fight to overcome. It shouldn't have been a close race, but Cali and NY libs nearly stole it.

    He did get a lot of out of state money from limousine liberals. However, there was real appeal. The same types gave money to Abortion Barbie just a few years ago, and it made little difference.

    Beta was able to connect with suburban female voters (who have been moving away from the GOP) and attract new voters. He sucked in the debate, but he was good on the campaign trail and in person. Furthermore, he had coattails. His candidacy probably made the difference with Pete Sessions and John Culberson. We also lost 12 state house seats in suburban areas and had several very close calls in places like Collin County that had been Republican strongholds for decades.

    Beta is a big *****, but he is a force to be feared.

    My own daughter voted for him. She kept her Beto sign up in her front yard Long after the election. I had to grit my teeth every time I went over there. Don’t know what the attraction is, but he definitely appeals to a segment of the population.

    Heck my BROTHER liked him. Said he liked what Beta said even though my brother could not tell me one position beta had. He liked the kum by ah stuff.

    Yep. A huge number of voters vote for the candidate who makes them feel best. If none of them make them feel good, then they vote for the candidate who makes them feel the least crappy. (See 2016 election.)

    Incredible - that so many people focused on appearance and paid no attention at all to substance (or in the case of Beto, lack of substance).

    bend over O'Dork doesn't need substance, all he needs to do is win and the DNC will tell him what to do from there. Democrat leadership isn't leadership at all, they are a bunch of puppets for the DNC. All they have to do is what the DNC tells them to do.

    It is pathetic, but we're not a very deep people. We largely don't vote on issues. I'm not sure that it's necessarily appearance. Beta isn't an ugly guy, but he's not Brad Pitt either. I think the appeal is about his style and his tone. At least when he was running for Senate, he seemed "cool" and was pretty likable. Presidential candidate Beta was wildly different.

    Virtue signaling is the only requirement for a Liberal to believe they are capable of being President of the greatest military and economic super power in the world. They are so parochial in their vision that their fantasy world IS the world. That's all that is needed.
