Late Night Video — Beto O’Rourke on the NFL Players Kneeling

So well done. He reminds me of RFK some. Incredible that all of this character and integrity isn’t beating Ted Cruz in a landslide.

  1. Pfft… Where was O’Rourke’s “character and integrity” when he voted for Trump’s $700 billion war budget for 2019?

    Since on the big issues, there is little to differentiate between O’Rourke and Cruz, it’s no surprise the polls show O’Rourke v. Cruz to be a toss up.

    Like Obomba, O’Rourke can make ringing speeches, but his voting record is G.O.P.

    • Are you still living in the Ecuadoran embassy in London?

      • Have you renounced your devotion to Nancy Pelosi ?

        • It’s not devotion. When a younger, more progressive candidate is nominated, I’ll be all for that person.

          I agree with this Paul Krugman column about her. All I ever said was that she’s been the most effective Democratic speaker in my lifetime at keeping the caucus in line, which has been critical the past couple of years. You have yet to refute that, or even tried to do so. You merely posture.

          • “…she’s been the most effective Democratic speaker in my lifetime at keeping the caucus in line,”

            In line for what?…. Bush’s Iraq war appropriations, the Heritage Foundation’s for-profit health insurance scheme.

            For 5h!+ we could well do without, she’s been all too effective.

            • Read the column. Fight with him.

              So you think Democrats should have voted against the ACA?

              Just curious: What other forms do your anti-war efforts take?

  2. Nancy pelosi is the sole reason for TERM Limits! She is rich and has profited off of insider trading, while not illegal for politicos, it’s surely is a practice that should be stopped!

    • Term limits are the last refuge of people who are afraid of the voters.

    • cassandram

      Interesting that you only care if politicians are rich only if they are Democrats. And insider trading was supposedly made illegal in 2012 for members of Congress.

      • I would love to know what he did/does for a living so I could point the dim-witted towards jobs in that field.

        • I recall a comment not too long ago where Anono said that s/he was “independently wealthy”.
