Beto O’Rourke is the skateboarding bass playing hipster doofus who challenged Ted Cruz for a Senate seat in Texas. He was backed by Hollywood liberals, and the entire left side of the country swooned over him, dubbing him a “rock star.”
He may have lost, mostly because Texas isn’t California or New York, but he’s counting on the rest of the country being dumb enough to overlook his lack of credentials and credibility. Despite swearing that he wouldn’t run for president in 2020, O’Rourke is now considering it, which means he’s definitely throwing his hat in the ring.
Before the November midterm election, O’Rourke said, “I will not be a candidate for president in 2020. That’s, I think, as definitive as those sentences get.”
Democrats are not necessarily known for telling the truth or sticking by their own words. Politico reports O’Rourke has “evolved” on the issue of running for president in 2020:
Beto O’Rourke said Monday that he is no longer ruling out a run for president in 2020, a reversal that thrilled his legion of loyal supporters while clouding an already-crowded Democratic primary field.
“Running for Senate, I was 100 percent focused on our campaign, winning that race and then serving the next six years in the United States Senate. Now that that is no longer possible, you know, we’re thinking through a number of things,” he said.
O’Rourke was asked if his position on running for president is different now than it was before the election, and he replied, “Yeah, yeah it is.”
This non-shocking news is not a random occurrence, but actually part of a coordinated effort. There was an absolute explosion of Beto O’Rourke slobbering from the left on Monday as they all came together to promote him as the next Democratic nominee for president.
Left-leaning The Hill ran an opinion piece that was more like a lap dance, begging O’Rourke to run:
Beto O’Rourke should reach for the gold ring. He’ll never be hotter than he is now. He is only 46 years old, charismatic, articulate and is the darling of social media. He can clearly raise a ton of dough.
He is so cool that — like Lebron and Kanye — he has become one of America’s few single-name icons, known to pundits and voters alike simply as “Beto.”
O’Rourke should strike while the iron is hot. Shrinking violets do not become presidents. Risk takers like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton become presidential nominees and presidents.
Former Barack Obama aide Dan Pfeiffer made “THE CASE FOR BETO O’ROURKE” on his Crooked blog:
Not only should Beto run, there is a strong case to make that if he were to do so, he would be one of the strongest candidates in the field.
I have never seen a Senate candidate—including Obama in 2004—inspire the sort of enthusiasm that Beto did in his race.
Millions of people already believe in Beto O’Rourke, and that moment, for them and him, may be upon us.
And Newsweek pretty much created a fantasy world where Beto O’Rourke already is the president:

It’s not a coincidence that on the same day that O’Rouke suddenly changed his mind about running for president, Politico, The Hill, Dan Pfeiffer, and Newsweek drooled all over themselves to promote him as presidential material. The Liberalverse has already anointed O’Rourke as their savior and is grooming “The White Obama” for a 2020 run.
The only people shocked by O’Rourke’s sudden turnaround are people dumb enough to take a Democrat at his word. He was never going to win a Senate seat in Texas, and the entire purpose of his Hollywood-funded campaign was to use it as a stepping stone for the Democratic primaries in 2020.
The potential crop of Democratic candidates is nothing but dinosaurs and weirdos, so the left is desperately trying to promote a drunk driving culturally appropriating goober, who many call “Beta O’Dork,” as the next big thing.
