Texas Democrats look for a candidate as Betomania nostalgia fades

WATAUGA, Texas — Each candidate hit applause lines as the Democratic debate beamed into the cramped Texas dining room filled with soupy bowls of Vietnamese pho.

Tom Steyer, the billionaire hedge fund manager, scored for calling President Trump a “criminal.” Cory Booker, the New Jersey senator, won applause for talking up the right to legalized abortion. Elizabeth Warren drew in support for proposing to tax “wealth, not income.”

But it was not until 45 minutes that the Democratic watch party came alive. It was the moment Beto O’Rourke answered his second question.

“Americans don’t want a handout, they want a shot,” said the former Democratic congressman from El Paso, Texas, delivering a passionate call for fair treatment of workers. “They want a guarantee that if they work hard they can find success in our country.”

    O’Rourke is about the most unprepared, most ignorant of real issues pretender presented to the public by the Demo-Socialist Party in many a year. This is the guy who actually believed he had resemblance to John F. Kennedy. But, JFK was unique, always dressed tastefully, and didn’t wave his arms so much one would think he was trying to take-off. O’Rourke fails at being anything like JFK, as well as using a Mexican knick-name hoping to endear himself to hispanics.
    It is no wonder that he hasn’t exceeded a 2% popularity with the voter constituency. And that result comes out of a group of Dem. candidates, none of which appeal except to those who would nullify the U.S. Constitution.
