Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

This Fox News article really sums it up about Beto, er, Francis.

Exactly! People who have yet to finish high school, never had a job or any other familial responsibilities and otherwise, don't know Snit from Shinola are allowed to vote.
Absolutely. I think lowering the voting age to 18 was a huge mistake.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?


There are so many other more valid reasons to not vote for the guy than his Hispanic sounding nickname.
Of course. But my hypothesis was that he'd lose a good number of Hispanic votes if the ballot said "Robert Francis" instead of "Beto."

And when they finally get to the polls, they'll see:

Ted Cruz [ ]
Beto O'Rourke [ ]
Whooooooaaa. Waitaminnit. Will they use a NICKNAME on an official ballot? Ararararar. I bet "Robert Francis O'Rourke" would cost him a a few votes! I wonder if the ballot designers are Democrats.

Even the most fervent Beto supporters know Ted Cruz would wipe the floor with Beto in a debate. Sounds like they are avoiding at all costs.
Yah. Not only is Cruz off-the-charts intelligent, he's the equivalent of a 9th degree black belt in debate. Won all kinds of national debate competitions, argued (and won) cases in front of the Supreme Court, etc. He would reduce Beto - excuse me, "Robert Francis" - to a drooling infant in a debate. It would be a real popcorn moment on TV.

If Texas turns blue, I'm out. headed to Wyoming.
Anything's possible. Remember, Hillary got 44% of the Texas vote. You know, in every election, people talk about how important it is to get out and vote. It's essentially a standard script. But this time, it really IS important; it's critical, if we don't want to lose Texas to the liberal socialists.

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

Another Beto data point that isn't being mentioned is that while he did attend El Paso High School briefly, he graduated from a very exclusive, elite private high school in Virginia (yes, Virginia), Woodbury Forest. Tuition there starts at about $60,000 per year. Yeah, he can really identify with those poor border meskins, eh?
