"The high school yearbooks of former Texas congressman Robert Francis O'Rourke make no mention of him as "Beto," the nickname he says "just stuck" with him ever since he was growing up.
O'Rourke graduated in June 1991 and was awarded the Robert F. Williams Memorial Medal for being the student who "submits the most imaginative prose or poetry," according to the yearbook.
O'Rourke is now considering a run for president, but is struggling to find direction in his life as he plots what to do, the New York Times reports."

He’ll drop Beto because he will want play up the “Robert Francis” Kennedy angle to attract soccer moms and boomer grandmas who still swoon for the Kennedys.

He sounds like a fag, Jim.
Married to a BILLIONAIRE.
The family dresses up the kids in tatters so it doesn’t look too embarrassing, so that they look middle class.
Robert is transitioning into a Latino. A transitino.
His proof of his nickname was a picture of him as a toddler in a white turtleneck that had BETO on the front. Looked totally photoshopped, but nobody even brought that up. What a phony.
As if anyone would believe a NYT article.
Sounds like quite an award. LOL.
It was a dark and stormy night...
- or maybe -
There was a young girl from Hoboken...
O’Rourke is a good Irish name, isn’t it?
Why is he considered Hispanic?
If 46 year old o'rourke hasn't figured his "direction" in life by now, he never will.
The guy is a douche.
But I picked up a nickname in college that did stick. No one in my home town or high school would know me by that name.
I am called one thing by my siblings, that no one outside of the family knows.
There are plenty of reasons to dislike this guy. His nickname is not one of them.
His FIL may only be worth 1/2 billion.
Still no excuse for dressing your children like ragamuffins.
What does it matter? "Latino" is a total BS construct as it is, made up by white liberals to give handouts to Mexicans who were never slaves.
As if a blonde-haired, blue eyed-business executive in Montevideo has any shared ethnic solidarity with a Mestizo migrant farmhand in the San Joaquin Valley. They both celebrate Christmas and that's about it. Even the dialects of Spanish they each speak are practically unintelligible to each other.

Isn’t that quote a hoot? When it comes to finding direction in life, most folks are trying to decide whether to join the military, go to college, or get a job.
Beto is trying to decide whether to run for president or just sit in his mansion and write more poetry.
Beto vs. Trump, this evening in El Paso. Beto should win the “Rally” show because El Paso is in his home territory...but...alas, Beto will get politically slaughtered by Trump...just as Ted Cruz politically slaughtered Beto winning by a 250,000 vote margin on his own while being added another 68,000 votes from an independent candidate. Beto at the end of the night lost his running for Cruz’s Senate seat by a some 318,000 vote victory margin for Cruz, etc.
My money goes on POTUS, Donald J. Trump who will easily wipe up the floor with Beto O’Rourke who, by the way, is far from POTUS candidate material.
But....Beto should not feel too bad, because every other Democrat announced or unannounced candidate for POTUS adds to “ZERO”, also!!!
Hey, Beto, my boy, the Trumpies are already lining up early to get great seats for tonight’s MAGA rally. How many of your folks are already out on the streets of El Paso waiting for you, Beto?
Beto is really not all that bright. Programming against Trump on the local level is a sure loser.
Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke, the Irish Gay Blade.
Sad that he has gone so wrong since he was a high school student. With luck he will see the light and get on the side of the real Americans.
In other words, his grades stunk in anything necessary to Make America great again. That this skinny Robert Kennedy impersonator should be taken seriously as a presidential candidate shows how pathetic the Femocrat Party is at present.
