My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
Being a son of Houston Texas I grew up with the Houston Chronicle. The Houston chronicle asking Beto O’Rourke to run for Senate is one of the best things I have heard from them in a long time.
Look, just like John hickenlooper who’s about to pull out of the presidential campaign to maybe run for the Colorado senate seat hell by Republican I think it is Beto O’Rourke’s civic duty to do the same to run for that Republican seat in Texas. This time he will win with the wind in his back of a presidential election turnout. They don’t work as a Young Man and in for a years he can run for president again and he’ll have a senate seat on his resume with real foreign policy chops. I really like Beto O’Rourke. I donated heavily to his campaign when he was running against Ted Cruz also known as the Zodiac Killer. But I think it’s time for him to read the tea leaves and do what he does best and show texts that he meant it when he said he was El Paso strong.
Can you imagine the uproar from a Liz Cheney if we try to meddle in the Republican primary process. Their heads would explode.
Basically this tells us that there are afraid of the field that the Democrats are mounting to take on Trump in 2020. I think they are feeling the fact that there’s going to be a tidal wave, a blue tsunami that will change the political landscape. That’s why you see Mitch McConnell rushing unqualified activist judges on the federal bench. he is trying to fill every vacancy that he left open during President Obama’s presidency. Shame on Mitch McConnell and the Republicans.
Better Angels, an organization I belong to, says one should listen to the other side. I’m listening and I don’t like what I’m hearing.
if the Democrats are going to win the White House in 2020 they must be pragmatic. I think that Beto O’Rourke would fit the mold for a lot of those people who would be uncomfortable, maybe because of their racism, with a person of color at the top of the ticket. I would love to see Carmela Harris as president but I fear that she would polarize the right into Ville coming out in voting and Rose. I believe the right learned our lesson with President Obama and have now mobilized as a feverish voting Bloc. They don’t seem to have Trump fatigue, which baffles me. So yes, a young man, a Kennedy like like figure would be a great choice.
Very unscientific polls of Democrats on Twitter have him in the lead, they don’t work checks a lot of boxes for voters. He’s fully bilingual, he is an amazing speaker and most importantly he makes you feel good when you hear him. And he also tells the truth which would be such a refreshing difference from what we have right now in the White House.
During 2004 Democratic Convention I had some friends over watching the keynote speech by then Senator Obama. After we finished I said he’s going to be our president and everyone in the room started chuckling and told me I was delusional. For some reason, I get the same feeling from Beto O’Rourke.
