Saint Beto

To tell the truth, I am relieved. Beto is too pure, too idealistic to be a candidate. He can do more good for this country as a civil rights leader. He has a very promising future ahead of him. Carry the dream, Beto! I have faith in you!



Oh, and you will note that I am now an Elizabeth Warren supporter. Let's hear it for the next POTUS, Warren!



If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren

However, I will remember all of the people here that did everything possible to tear down Beto.

You certainly took it hard whenever Beto received any praise and were one of the first people to jump on those threads to indicate your disapproval.

20. I never liked Beto. I'd be the first to admit that.

 

I found his history of trying to tear down a poor Latino neighborhood to build a Walmart a disqualifier for me.

Interestingly enough, Iíve disagreed with supporters of other candidates, but only Beto supporters seemed to go personal.

Two I remember in particular, both no longer members here, who attacked anyone who dared to say anything about Beto they didnít like. Others were attacked worse than me, for less.

I think I said he was nothing like Bobby Kennedy. I still say that. But not sure why his supporters take that so personally.

And here you are. I never said anything bad about him except to ask how anyone could support him with that Walmart debacle in his background.

I didnít have to tear him down. I knew what was going to happen, and it did.

Sorry youíre taking it so hard. I donít invest that much emotion into any candidate. But, thatís just me.

22. LOL.

Where have you been? I've seen supporters for the other candidates go personal and I was the recipient of some of those attacks. Selective memory, perhaps?

BTW, I don't believe the financial plans that Warren has made for her wish list of goodies will ever be accepted by voters. Trillions of dollars in tax increases that will never be passed by Congress. Without the money her plans will go nowhere. Since that is the case and since I do not view Warren as a viable candidate in the Rust Belt states, at least I know that I shouldn't invest any emotion into her candidacy if she becomes the nominee.

The way I look at it, the Democrats lost 38 electoral votes and as many at ten congressional seats for the next decade. We probably also lost any chance to retake the Texas House which means the districts will get gerrymandered again. There is no joy in Mudville, oops Texas, with Beto exiting the race. However, I don't want or need your pity.

28. Ok. You have a nice night.

 

I guess Iíve only been attacked by the supporters I mentioned...the ones no longer on this site.

Iíve even spoken about Bernie, whom Iíve never liked - but his supporters havenít gotten personal with me. Sorry others have gotten personal with you, but hey, people often give what they get.

Beto has left the race. Really nothing to be this exercised about. He wasnít going to bring us Texas. And with his recent stance on ďconfiscation,Ē he may have done more harm than good there. But, it really doesnít matter anymore. Nothing to worry about.

As far as Warren, sheís the one I chose for my candidate of choice on this forum. But I like Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, and a couple of others. Perhaps Warren wonít be the nominee. Perhaps sheíll drop out. I sure wonít attack another candidate if she does, as you did earlier. Why should I? Iíll be happy with whomever we nominate.

Perhaps your life is difficult right now; I donít know. I just canít imagine being that upset over a candidateís withdrawal. Heís a rich guy with a nice family. Heís gonna be fine, donít you worry.

Take care now. Hang in there.

15. This is some sort of parody, yes?

 

Beto/St George the dragon-slayer or something like that. Because if not, this is downright creepy.

That being said, it gave me no joy to hear O'Rourke was bowing out. The press did Beto no favors at the beginning and he just wasn't able to recoup from the hits. He made mistakes as well but all candidates make mistakes. For whatever reason, Mayor Pete ate Beto's lunch during those debates.

Still, I think he has a future in the Democratic Party if that's the direction he wants to turn his energy. His turnout in Texas last year was indeed bordering on the miraculous.

But canonization? I don't think so.

completely over-the-top. There are few if any saints walking among us. None I'd say moving within political circles. Including St. Bernard. None.

Beto isn't' a saint but he is a good person. And the sword in his hand looks so wrong. Still, this is harmless and I don't understand what the big deal is.
