Beto photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vanity Fair

“How can you NOT want this man to have sex with you? I mean, be your President?”

VANITY FAIR on Twitter

““Man, I’m just born to be in it.” Beto O’Rourke seemed to come from nowhere to the brink of a presidential candidacy—but he’s been on this journey for his whole life. O’Rourke spoke with Joe Hagan. Photographs by Annie Leibovitz. https://t.co/WhmQGZnbUg”

You queens and Bernie Bros are the shitstains of the electorate. If you’re even part of the actual electorate. For every criticism of Beto, you should have to make it substantial and tell us who your preferred candidate is and why they’re better than Beto on a specific issue.

And you can only do that once his platform has been fully revealed.

Of course you can’t do that, so your shit-talking now is as vapid as you’ve accused him and his fans of being.

Kamala Harris will not beat him. Biden is possible but unlikely. Bernie is possible but not likely. If it comes down to Beto v Trump, Beto wins based on height, ability to speak intelligently off script, and lack of corruption and criminal behavior.

Pete B is wonderful but he’s a super-long-shot.

In the meantime, can’t we all just enjoy Beto’s bare feet? No?

R76 Some people don't get it. Just because they don't want to personally be friends with some Americans in this country, doesn't mean Beto doesn't need their votes. DLrs can write off 70% of America, culturally, when it comes to forming coastal hang-out cliques but you can't write off 70% of the country in a general election and expect to win.

The radicals who are adored by pockets of college campus "Fidel Casto Appreciation" Leagues won't just not run well in a handful of American communities, they'll outright fail in 30+ states.

Beto would make a great life model at any art school. He would probably be a fine relationship manager in a corporate bank. He could be the top seller in any real estate company. If he opened a hair salon and did hair while wearing a tight t-shirt and jeans, women and men would be lined up down the block.

Other than being young, white, male, filthy rich and photogenic, I'm not seeing Beto's resume as particularly presidential. Any Democrat over any Rethuglican, absolutely. But the Democratic Party is big and, at least at this juncture, there seem to be better candidates for the Democrats to back.

I'm not suggesting that Beto is unable to be president, or even unsuited to it. But he's getting ahead of himself. He's inexperienced and, therefore, not yet qualified.

by Anonymousreply 8903/14/2019

R88, Buttigieg's educational resume is far richer than Beto's. But Beto has served three terms in the House of Representatives.

Some significant experience in the federal government is necessary to be successful in the White House. If Obama had been more seasoned in D.C. when he became President, he might not have pissed away valuable time and opprotunity in his naive pursuit of grand bargains and compromise. He was totally stonewalled by the GOP and didn't seem to even see it happen. I don't want to go through that again. Ever.

So to answer your question more specifically, I think Buttigieg is even less qualified than Beto, vis a vis 2020 Democratic Presidential candidacy.

Beto is actually the only candidate who has been thoroughly vetted by the worst of the GOP. Which is probably why the GOP's going nuts attacking him. The cupboard is bare. Here's Ted Cruz's campaign manager. He's the one who dug up the Melania lesbian nudies.

I can't believe how are falling over themselves for him. Beto couldn't even win the debates with Cruz, which is not hard to do when you're dealing with a scumbag and liar. How can we expect him to debate Trump? Beto is full of platitudes, but lacks any substance.

Oh, I'm Mr. Nice Guy, and i promise to work with Republicans. That's not going to work.

by Anonymousreply 14803/14/2019

Beto was fine in the debates and Cruz is a professional debater. Austan Goolsbee who hates Cruz's guts, was on the Princeton Debate team with Cruz. He said Cruz wins debates on technicalities - he lies continually which forces his opponent to waste time correcting the lies instead of pursuing their own argument.

Trump is 1/100th as intelligent as Cruz though every bit as big a liar.

by Anonymousreply 14903/14/2019

R149 If you're a decent debater, nobody forces you to do anything. Beto just has no real ethos, and by the way he's advocating take down all border fences and walls in a border state. Sounds like magic to me. What could stop him?

by Anonymousreply 15003/14/2019

Yes, R148, it is going to work. And Beto will pull out the big guns if/when necessary. No idea why you’re assuming Trump will be running again in 2020, though.

People are indeed tired of the hatefulness and dividedness of this country. This WILL BE a “change” Election, and Beto is going to be the change people are looking for.

Don’t believe me? Just watch.

by Anonymousreply 15103/14/2019

R151 Ok, I'm trying to thread the needle between "pulling out the big guns" and fighting hatefulness/ divisiveness in the US. How does that look IRL? Sounds like Beto is going scorched-earth, if you have the inside knowledge you allege. Doesn't sound like toning down division to me.

by Anonymousreply 15203/14/2019

EXPERIENCE?

a) Trump won the presidency with zero government experience. And even zero legit corporate experience! He always worked in a family business, hidden from shareholders and obscured from the government!

b) Beto served three terms in the U.S. House — TWO MORE THAN ABRAHAM LINCOLN, who was later elected president. (Beto also served as an El Paso city councilman; very relevant and valuable experience, as it's a U.S.-Mexico border town that also happens to be one of the safest cities in the U.S.)

Pelosi weighed in on the experience question perfectly.

Kasie DC on Twitter

“.@Kasie: "Do you think that the experience [@BetoORourke] has here in the House is a strong enough foundation to jump to the Oval Office?” @SpeakerPelosi: “And you ask me that when we have a President of the United States who never – you know – please. Yes, the answer is yes.” https://t.co/YLDK1FPYSF”

by Anonymousreply 15303/14/2019

Let's face it, Pelosi has very little idea of what's going on at any moment. Beto's experience is not so much the issue --t his accomplishments and ideas are. He's very vapid. And what he doe say, for instance eliminating all borders, is ridiculous. Which means he is too.

Dear r129, once upon a time there was a band called "The Dead Kennedys". They were a punk band popular during the 80's and had a song called "Kill the poor". It was satirical in nature and quite catchy with "the punks". What I was getting at in my post is that I can imagine someone pulling up a blurb/photo where Beto is wearing a DK (that's Dead Kennedys) t shirt and them pulling up lyrics to the song and taking it out of context. Idiots would eat it up due to their extremely short attention span and complete lack of individual thought and nuance, much like you. You may want to do a little research before you post an ignorant comment such as yours. And it's just called punk, not "punk culture". Now, go eat a filthy truckers musky, unwashed hole.

Beto was a great choice to run against Ted Cruz. He is the opposite of Cruz in every respect. It was easy to cheer him on in that confined space.

But early in this Presidential campaign season, when Beto is not so strictly evaluated against a festering pustule like Ted Cruz, he looks a good deal more lightweight.
