LOL: Beto is still trying to make himself happen
· · Nov 15, 2021 ·

Yes, Robert "Beto" O'Rourke is still trying to become the first Irishman-turned-Latinx skater brah to become governor of Texas, despite failing at literally everything.

Former U.S. Congressman and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke announced Monday that he is running for governor of Texas.

His campaign announcement video largely centered around the Texas power grid's failure during a winter storm in February.

"When the electricity grid failed and those in power failed all of us, it was the people of Texas who were willing to put their differences behind them and get to work doing the job at hand, which meant helping our fellow Texans get through that crisis," O'Rourke said. "We did this out of a sense of duty and responsibility to one another. Now imagine if the governor of Texas felt that same way. Well, there's something that you and I can do about that."


Yeah, he'll do "something"... you know, like build more of those useless windmills that froze and caused the power grid to fail.

Here's Beto tooting his own horn:

Flashback to Beto just 2 years ago:

That'll be a popular slogan in [checks notes] Texas.

O'Rourke is hoping to capture the energy he brought to his 2018 U.S. Senate race, when he lost to Republican Senator Ted Cruz by about 2.5 percentage points.

What divine intervention that was!

O'Rourke used the momentum from that campaign to launch a run for president in 2020, but after a huge fundraising launch, he dropped out a few months before the Iowa caucuses after his campaign never had significant support in the polls.

But just like Hillary Clinton, Terry McAuliffe, or Stacey Abrams, there is no such thing as failing among elite Democrats, only failing up.

Here was Gov. Abbott's response:

Remember, you new millennial residents of the Lone Star State: There's a reason you moved away from SoCal, so stop voting for the same things!
