Shocked Face Alert! Beto O’Rourke Is Running In 2020 [VIDEO]

I’m going to need a new shocked face, the original one is getting worn out. What is the latest “shocked face” news? Beto O’Rourke is running for President in 2020. Yeah, such a shocker isn’t it? Nobody and I mean NOBODY saw that one coming. *insert epic eyeroll here.

“Amy and I made a decision not to rule anything out,” he told reporters afterward, admitting that his position is different from the one he took on 2020 during his campaign.

O’Rourke, 46, who is leaving the House after three terms, would enter the race with more limited elected experience than many of his rivals but a proven ability to excite Democratic voters in a political era dominated by President Trump.

Well, at least the WaPo admits Beto’s experience is non-existent, so there’s that. But wait! People like him! He skateboards! He sings! He’s JFK handsome!

Needless to say, the media is just beside themselves with joy that Beto will run and unseat Trump! Well, it could happen. and I have some swampland on the moon to sell you for a bargain price.

Democrat strategists really want him to run.

“He is hip and he is contemporary, but there is something much deeper than that, which is he treats voters with respect,” said David Axelrod, a former strategist for Obama. “I think people are hungry for that — this sense that politics can be something other than ‘The Hunger Games.’ ”

Sean Bagniewski, chairman of the Polk County Democratic Party in Iowa, said O’Rourke had been invited twice to speak in the county but had yet to respond, which was unusual for potential candidates. “The joke around town is you would need to rent out Wells Fargo Arena if you get him, which would be tens of thousands of people,” he said. “I don’t know if it would be that big.”

Yeah, he’s “hip” alright. So hip that he has thoughts on immigration and Newsweek just KNOWS he’ll be better than Trump ever could be.

In a message posted online to Medium on Sunday, O’Rourke called on the U.S. government to handle the situation at the southern border “the right way” after U.S. Border Patrol agents fired teargas at hundreds of Central American migrants who had rushed the U.S.-Mexico border.

“It should tell us something about her home country that a mother is willing to travel 2,000 miles with her 4-month old son to come here,” O’Rourke, who lost his Senate bid against Republican incumbent Ted Cruz in the midterm elections, wrote in a message posted online to Medium.

Yeah sure! Let’s tug on the heartstrings with gut wrenching sob stories of women and children being threatened by the big ole mean Trump Administration!

“People are leaving violent countries where they fear for their lives,” the Democrat wrote. “Without money, they are subsisting on hope for their kids, for themselves, that they can get to safety. After being denied the ability to lawfully petition for asylum for the last 10 days, they are desperate.

Beto, let me clue you in. There is a U.S. Consulate office IN Tijuana. That mother and child along with ALL the other women, children, and truckloads of men can walk right into that building and start the application process. There’s not a single person stopping them from doing so.

But you see, facts like that don’t matter to Beto and his fan base.

O’Rourke tried to play coy about whether he is or isn’t running. He’s trying to make it all about a family decision. Then why the tease? Why all the time spent in California meeting with very high level donors during the Senate campaign?

Because, he’s running. He thinks he’s another Lincoln or Obama and will be able to skateboard right into office. Only difference between Beto and Lincoln is that Lincoln was a very smart man. Beto? Not so much.

As for his performance compared to Obama’s performance in 2012?

OUCH.

Beto can play coy all he wants, but he’s clearly positioning himself to run. Just wait, he’ll pop up in Iowa soon and we can all say ‘See! I told you so!’

I’m going to go shop for a new shocked face now.

    When Occasional-Cortex decides that she is running, as well, what ARE the lefties gonna do? If they go with Beto, they will be labeled as sexist. If they go with Occasional-Cortex, what is Hill gonna do? We know she’s running, again. If I were Beto and Occasional-Cortex, I think I would hire very good private security. Those who go against the Clintons tend to wind up dead.

    Ah, Beto. He’s RFK pretty and Obama kewl! And that’s all that 90% of Dems want.

  • Pragmatic says:

    So another white guy B.O. who plays at being a minority then? It’s 2008 all over again.

    Democrats are so predictable.

  • Tony says:

    He reminds me more of John Kerry. Tall and lanky with a horse-face and teeth. And, from the point of view of one of the non-besotted, he does not appear cool. Like Kerry, it doesn’t matter what he does, kite-surfing, skiing, skateboarding etc…, he will never be cool. To put a finer point on it, no politicians are cool and none of them should ever be referred to as “rock stars”. They are, no matter their affiliation, power hungry loser douchebags who’ve been carrying a chip on their shoulder since early high school.

    If you want a lotto vote for Blotto ( Robert Francis ) O’Rourke.
