The media darling for the 2020 election is Beto O’Rourke…..I have offered my thoughts on this candidate…..”he will be the big centrist without big ideas in other words just another old style Dem in the White House”……
It is official!
Beto O’Rourke, who said weeks ago that he had made a decision on running for president in 2020, has now decided to share that decision with the world. The Democrat confirmed in a text message to El Paso station KTSM that he plans to enter the race, saying his hometown is “a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.” The 46-year-old former congressman, who narrowly lost his US Senate race against Ted Cruz in Texas last year, is expected to make a formal announcement Thursday, the Guardian reports.
I have been waiting for the MSM to go to his congressional voting record….and so far they have stayed away from that…..they want his as a candidate and will do whatever it takes to make it so……
To back up my assertions I give you his voting record while in Texas legislature…..
Capital & Main reviewed the167votes O’Rourke has cast in the House in opposition to the majority of his own party during his six-year tenure in Congress. Many of those votes were not progressive dissents alongside other left-leaning lawmakers, but instead votes to help pass Republican-sponsored legislation.
O’Rourke has voted for GOP bills that his fellow Democratic lawmakers said reinforced Republicans’ anti-tax ideology, chipped away at the Affordable Care Act (ACA), weakened Wall Street regulations, boosted the fossil fuel industry and bolstered Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
Consumer, environmental, public health and civil rights organizations have cast legislation backed by O’Rourke as aiding big banks, undermining the fight against climate change and supporting Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda. During the previous administration, Barack Obama’s White House issued statements slamming two GOP bills backed by the 46-year-old Democratic legislator.
Now that the media has drummed him into running they will set about destroying for possible.
Beto is NOT what the Dems need….we have had enough cowardly Dems in the White House….time for big ideas and bigger solutions.
