Robert Francis O’Rourke lost to Ted Cruz in Texas’ senatorial race last year.
Being losers by nature, many democrats were excited at the prospect of the former representative running for the highest office in the land.
Now, it would appear that the man we’ve come to know as “Beto” wants to start his entire campaign over. I don’t blame him one bit.

This is from nbcnews.com, and it’s as stupid as you’d think:
Beto O’Rourke plans to deliver his first major, written address on Thursday, offering a reset of his presidential campaign, a new focus and a fresh strategy for going forward in the wake of a mass shooting in O’Rourke’s hometown of El Paso that killed 22 people last week.
O’Rourke will recommit to holding President Trump accountable for the state of the country — and focus on the stakes of removing a president from office whom he has explicitly linked to the deaths of fellow El Pasoans, according to a senior campaign official.
He’ll focus heavily on three key issues: racism, white supremacy and guns — and plans to propose what the campaign calls “new, bold solutions.”
Oh, WOW, Beto is going to bring up RACISM, and GUNS!!! You know, the things that he’s been talking about the entire campaign.
Beto has literally been running on these “issues” the entire time, and now he’s having to reset his campaign… so that he can go back to what he was doing?
If you’re from Texas, like me, you probably don’t like this guy. He’s slimy. He probably played polo or rowed or something silly (nothing against those activities, but come on.. Beto didn’t play football or baseball… I bet he can’t even catch). He wrote about running over kids.
Oh yeah, let me repeat that one again, HE WROTE ABOUT DRIVING HIS CAR OVER KIDS.
For a party that talks about “white privilege” all the time, Beto is the epitome of it. He’s freakin’ weird as hell, he talks like a robot, every male over 13 knows they can kick his ass, and the left STILL thinks he’s a viable candidate (or maybe they don’t, hence his needing a “restart”). If that isn’t white privilege, I don’t know what is.
The guy comes from money. He’s a dork. Nothing he does will save his campaign.
Rock on, Beto.
