Beto Drops Out, Kamala On The Edge

It had become increasingly clear that Beto O’Rourke had exactly zero shot at the Democrat nomination. Today he made it official.

But even in defeat, Beto is busy talking about his own personal awesomeness and how much he loathes Donald Trump.

Though it is difficult to accept, it is clear to me now that this campaign does not have the means to move forward successfully. My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee. Acknowledging this now is in the best interests of those in the campaign; it is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee; and it is in the best interests of the country.
I decided to run for President because I believed that I could help bring a divided country together in common cause to confront the greatest set of challenges we’ve ever faced. I also knew that the most fundamental of them is fear — the fear that Donald Trump wants us to feel about one another; the very real fear that too many in this country live under; and the fear we sometimes feel when it comes to doing the right thing, especially when it runs counter to what is politically convenient or popular.

No, what Beto believed was his own press, and when the press adored him for taking on Ted Cruz, they ended up not loving him so much when he was just one in a sea of faces vying for the Democrat nomination. Plus, he’s obnoxious as hell.

But please be kind to his volunteers in Iowa, because they were still holding out hope that a 2% rating in the polls could lead straight to the top.

I expect that Beto will be going back to New Mexico to ingest some more dirt, smoke a bowl, and play some chords on his guitar while contemplating the rest of his wealthy life any second now. I’ll let President Trump have the last word on Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke.

Meanwhile, Kamala Harris is right on the edge of having to drop out herself. She just can’t believe that she isn’t doing so hot in this race – after all, she’s so intersectional! – and it must be the fault of racist and sexist bigots.

Sure, you keep telling yourself that, Kamala. Maybe Tulsi Gabbard can stop by and explain it to you.

Well, since the bigots aren’t paying the bills, Kamala Harris is having to cut her staff in New Hampshire.

Harris campaign officials confirmed to Fox News on Friday that all field staffers in the state have left the campaign and that only a “handful” of staff remains. The added that three field offices – in Keene, Nashua, and Portsmouth — have been shuttered. They said the state headquarters – in Manchester – will remain open with a small staff.

The move comes two days after top national officials for the senator from California announced they were restructuring and redeploying staffers from their headquarters in Baltimore and some of the early-voting states to Iowa, which kicks off the primary and caucus presidential nominating calendar. The campaign has been hemorrhaging money, spending more than what was coming in.

Harris is staking all her chips on a good showing in Iowa – and going into campaign debt while doing it. If that isn’t a metaphor for how she would run the country, I don’t know what is. But that Iowa caucus isn’t until February 3rd, and Kamala Harris is only polling at 3% in Iowa. How does her campaign manage to stay afloat for three more months if she’s blowing through campaign cash without anything to show for it?

So while you’re waving good-bye to Beto, it would be smart to be ready to say the same to Kamala Harris very soon. I’m sure we’ll all miss her annoying fake laugh and her stammering whenever she can’t think of an answer so, so much.

    Beto reminds me of a Dollar Store knockoff of Justin Trudeau.

  • Ralph R Jaeger says:

    Poor gringo….20,000,000 A R 15s make a pursuasive argument to drop out!

  • Joe R. says:

    We can only hope that their campaigns were extremely expensixe, and cause crippling debt, and that ‘d Oooshabag ANTIFA can be Head-faked into believing they are Conervative Republicans

  • James Male Flanagan says:

    Harris may be, like a lot of these fringe candidates, holding out hope for the vice president spot to pay off her debt with DNC money. If so, she’s in for a rude awakening as Booker has been pandering for that spot for months (“Politics be damned”).As a suffering NJ conservative, I would love to be rid of that loudmouthed moron.

    • Joe in PNG says:

      Which is funny, as the VEEP slot is usually for someone that the Candidate thinks will appeal to those they don’t appeal to. Kamala has no appeal for anyone, really.

      I’m thinking that Mayor Pete will be the VP pick of 2020.

  • GWB says:

    this campaign does not have the means candidate to move forward successfully

    I decided to run for President because I don’t have any actual useful skills besides prevarication, pretending to be something I’m not, and standing on tables and bars.
    FIFY, again.

    I could help bring a divided country together
    Well, arguably, you achieved that, since evidently NO ONE wants you to be the Democratic candidate.

    doing the right thing
    You wouldn’t know the “right thing” if it … nah, not gonna complete that thought.

    it must be the fault of racist and sexist bigots
    Yes, the black and feminist Democrats.

    The campaign has been hemorrhaging money, spending more than what was coming in.
    Hey, she IS fully qualified to be in our government!

    How is Mayor Pete hanging on in all of this? Oy vey.

  • Both of them talked down to Americans as though standing on their backs. We already had that with Obama. Never again!

    • Joe in PNG says:

      Say what you will about Biden, but he doesn’t come across as somebody that lathes and hates and despises the old blue collar constituency of the Democratic Party.

  • Tim says:

    Beto headed to Mexico. He figures the cartels will help him dis arm America
