From today's WSJ Editorial Board. Beto's lucky he married money or he's just be another unemployed liberal loser.

"It isn’t easy for a Democrat to win statewide in Texas these days, and Beto O’Rourke already lost once to Sen. Ted Cruz. Now he’s running for Governor against incumbent Greg Abbott, and on Wednesday he gambled on a stunt that could make or break his campaign.

Gov. Abbott and a variety of state and local officials were holding a press conference to update the public on the Uvalde massacre at Robb Elementary School. It was a governing, not a campaign, event.

After Mr. Abbott had spoken for several minutes, Mr. O’Rourke interrupted to point a finger at the Governor and declare, “This is on you,” referring to the murder of 19 children and two teachers by 18-year-old Salvador Ramos. “You said this was not predictable. This is totally predictable when you choose not to do anything,” Mr. O’Rourke added. The Democrat was then asked to leave by other officials on the stage, with at least one uttering an epithet.

Trailing in the polls, Mr. O’Rourke must figure he had to take a risk on politicizing the murders even as emotions are raw and officials are still trying to figure out Ramos’s motivation. Mr. O’Rourke famously said during his short-lived 2020 presidential campaign that he wanted to ban AR-15 rifles. On Wednesday he got his sound bite. We’ll see if Texans agree that this mass murder was all about gun control.

It's typical liberal baloney. They campaign to the far left during primaries. In the general election they act and talk like centrists. If they win they immediately swing hard left. Pick a democrat, any democrat. It's all the same. It's been going on for decades.

Just another vile liberal Democrat who hates the USA. I really hope these a$$holes take a f—king beating in November.
Hmmmm...where is MAD? This maggot was driving drunk, hit a guy, injured him, and drove away! His daddy is a judge, so he got away with it!

Funny that the "media" has forgotten the "prank" he played on his wife: taking baby shit and putting it in a bowl, and telling her it was guacamole. Nice guy, and I bet his hounddogish wife has really bad breath.

Is this one of those times you want him to "STFU"

What folks NEED to do is to lite up the phones of squishy republicant senators that are wringing hands and "talking" to dems aboutt capitulation/gun control

Sen Scott from Florida
Sen Cornyn from Texas
Sen McConnell
Sen Collins of Maine

Scott supported Red Flag laws as Fl Governor

Collins needs no further explanation

If you're not sending email/liting up their phones you're wasting your effort

Would you rather have Collins or a leftie?
