I didn't know this until today, and am really surprised. I thought Beto was around 10 or 15 years younger than Ted Cruz.

Ted Cruz comes off better in person than on television. He’s a good guy and he’s smart as hell. He also has a good sense of humor. Unlike Trump, he is secure enough about himself to make fun of himself.

Trump: "This guy Ted Cruz is the single biggest liar I have ever dealt with in my life. I mean it. ... He will lie about anything. I've met much tougher people than Ted Cruz. He's like a baby. ... He's like a little baby. Soft, weak, little baby by comparison. But for lying, he's the best I've ever seen. ... A guy like Ted Cruz, he has no clue. He never employed anybody. He's a nasty, nasty guy."

Cruz is a chill dood. Robert O’Rourke may as well live in the $1,300,000.00 barn in Lexington, MA. Out of touch Yankee billionaire who made a killing in the recession on foreclosures.

Why would a billionaire live in a tiny house in Lexington? Anything decent in that town is over 2.5

Beto is and always has been a criminal. His campaign is financing refugees to invade our country. Only in such a clown world does a narrow shouldered thing like this become a popular Democratic candidate.

Agreed. I dislike him as well, but in any sane country this Beto character would be considered a treasonous enemy of the people. Talk about terrible options.

Haha, did you ever get a peek at that guy Mr. Ossof that the (D) ran down in GA a couple of years ago?

But they loved him soooo much.

Apparently O’Rourke tried to join the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in 2013. His fellow congressmen didn’t allow him to do so, on account of the fact he is 105% irish white with a 5% margin of error.

Why does he go by "Beto", anyway? Kid sister or brother who mangled "Robert"?

Lived in El Paso which is right on the border. There’s been a bunch of controversy about how much he used the nickname growing up, but it was clearly used well before he went to politics.

Funnily enough, Cruz started going by Ted because his nickname, felito, rhymed with Fritos and Doritos and he got tired of other kids making fun of him using his nickname.

That is funny.

I'm betting if he'd made it into high school as "Felito", the jokes would have taken another turn...

Alright, I can understand why Beto thinks he can run for President. He’s charming enough and very liberal so he’s got a chance to come out on top in the Democratic primary. Anyone coming out of the primary other than an Al Sharpton-like charlatan has a decent chance of toppling Trump.

But Julian Castro? Give me a flipping break. What has he done exactly? Gave a speech for the B-side portion of the DNC convention and ran HUD for a couple of years. Zero chance.

Agree on most of this but I think after Trump we've pretty much destroyed the notion that you need any sort of political experience to win the oval office. At least Beto and Castro have read books, I'm guessing here.

Castro was also too cowardly to run for Senate against Cruz.

He’s banking on the strength of the Hispanic vote but the only early primary with a big Hispanic constituency is Nevada.

He also pansied out against running for Governor in 2014 which was his original reason for not taking the secretary of Transportation job when Obama first won. He says he hates congress and never wants to work in it. It’s like he just wants to be handed the presidency without doing anything to get there. I mean I’m not a liberal so I’d never vote for him anyway, but F that guy for being an entitled weeny that stands out in a profession full of entitled weenies.

Being Evil has ravaged Cruz's soul and is reflected in his bad phenotype imho. Beto's phenotype telegraphs his virtue and Excellence. Is this what you were getting at OP? Discuss.
