Beto O’Rourke is extending for President!
Another day, another Democratic wannabe? Or … is this something else ??
With his little league tutor pep talk style and grassroots campaigning, the El Paso native inspired the person in 2018. Though he eventually failed to best incumbent Texas Senator Ted Cruz , he did get closer than anyone would have expected a Democrat to get.
He’s a progressive who has voiced strong expressed support for criminal justice reform, medicare for all, compassionate immigration policy, and marijuana legalization. He considers climate change is the most pressing issue of our time — and won’t stop saying it no matter what ballots say. In point, he refused to hire pollsters during his Senate run.
The idea of someone who isn’t saying what people want to hear but what he thinks is right is encouraging.
But he likewise got lash by Ted freakin’ Cruz. EVERYONE hates Ted Cruz.
With something like 14 Democrat hats in the ring already, is Beto really in this thing or not? Would YOU vote for him ??
One thing we can tell you for sure.
Remember how in Harry Potter , Voldemort aims up commemorating his biggest antagonist by trying to go after Harry as a child?
Well, Donald Trump has not reacted to any of the other Democratic announcements quite this way.
At the White House on Thursday, Trump was ALREADY assaulting Beto just a couple hours after his first stump speech.
Trump said 😛 TAGEND
” Well, I think he’s got a lot of mitt crusade. I’ve never seen so much better side movement. I said,’ Is he crazy or is that merely the route he behaves ?’ I watched him a little while this morning, during I assume it was some kind of a news conference, and I’ve actually ever seen anything quite like it. Study it. I’m sure you’ll agree .”
Crazy ?” Crazy Beto “?
Man, he’s really stretching for the schoolyard reviles these days.
The important thing is, he’s already trying to go after the Texan, and it’s only Day 1.
Watch and read his full bulletin speech( below )!
I am leading to dish you as the next chairwoman. The challenges we face are the greatest in living remembrance. No one person can meet them on their own. Exclusively home countries can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us. Say you’re in: https :// t.co/ EKLdkVET2u pic.twitter.com/ lainXyvG2n

Here’s the full transcript 😛 TAGEND
” Amy and are happy to share with you that I’m running to help you as the next President of the United States of America.
This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us. The challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crisis in our economy, our republic and our climate have never been greater.
They will either eat us, or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America.
In other texts, this moment of peril develops perhaps the greatest time of promise for this country and for everyone inside of it.
We can begin by setting our republic and ensuring that our government works for everyone and not just for corporations.
We can invest in the dignity of those who work, and those who seek to work.
We can ensure that every single American can see a doctor and be well enough to live to their full potential.
And all of us, wherever you live, can acknowledge that if migration is an issue, it’s the highest possible problem for this country to have, and we should ensure that there are lawful directions to operate, to be with clas, and to flee persecution.
We can listen to, and lift up, rural America.
We can work on real justice reform and confront the hard truths of slavery, and segregation, and inhibition in these United States of America.
We can reassert our global leadership and point these decades-long conflicts, and be there for every woman and human who’ve served in them.
And perhaps more importantly of all, because our very existence depends on it, we can unleash the originality and creativity of millions of Americans who want to squarely confront the challenge of climate change before it’s too late.
This is going to be a positive expedition that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us, that seeks to unite a very divided country. We investigated the ability of this in Texas, where people let no difference nonetheless great or however small-time, to stand between them and divide us. Whether the information was belief, or gender, or income, or geography, we threw our descriptions and our differences aside to come together for the only thing that matters: the future of this country and the generations that will follow us.
Over the coming eras I’m going to travel this country and listen to those who I seek to serve; to understand from your perspective how we can best fill these challenges.
On March 30, I will be back here in El Paso, Texas, and I invite you to join us in a kickoff for this campaign.
But even if you cannot be here on March 30, I still want your help organizing where you live, bring back friends and family and neighbors to the greatest grassroots campaign home countries has ever seen.
There’s a lot more to come, but I wanna leave you with this 😛 TAGEND
The only way for us to live up to the promise of America is to give it our all and to impart it for all of us. We are rightfully now now more than ever the last great hope of Soil. At this moment of maximum peril and maximum potential, let’s prove ourselves and those who will succeed us in this great country just who we are and what we can do.
Thank you .”
