Skip to comments.What to watch for when Biden and Beto launch

In a way, O'Rourke has all the problems Biden doesn't - and few of the deficits that Biden must address. O'Rourke, 46, can raise gobs of money online - and likely will when he enters the race. His Senate race showed he can generate wild enthusiasm among nonwhite voters and young people. He has a vision - healing America, listening to one another, embracing diversity. However, he will be in the spotlight from the get-go, and will have to answer three questions.
First, is he going to run a national, professional campaign or try to wing it with a handful of advisers? If the latter, his campaign will be a disaster waiting to happen and will make plenty of Democrats nervous that he's ill-equipped to take on an incumbent president.
Second, what does he really want to do? "Stronger together" got Hillary Clinton nowhere because it didn't give voters a firm idea of what they were going to do after they got together. Yes, healing and reconciliation, plus optimism and a return to American values, will get plenty of applause. But after that, what will he want to do as president?

The RAT candidates are disgusting. It will be a race of who can be the most extreme, the most radical, the most corrupt, the most ANTI-AMERICAN, the most Marxist, the most for OPEN-BORDERS, the most supporter of ILLEGAL ALIENS, the best liar, the most hateful, the most ANTI-TRUMPER, the most supporter of RADICAL ISLAM....and the list goes on.
It’s ridicules....he is a phoney. All the talk about how he almost beat Ted Cruz is horsesh!t. He spent 80 to 100 million and lost!!! The press built him up and had him elected then Ted Cruz took him apart in the debate!!!

Is that really Beto O’Rourke?
Yeah, Robert Francis’ should involve skateboarding, lol.
Beto is gonna raise money? Isn’t he married into a billionaire family? that means either his own family doesn’t believe in his candidacy, OR they are for socialism for everyone except them.
I wish people would stop calling him Beto
His name is The Rich White Privileged Hetero Cisgendered Male Robert Francis ORourke
If Beto gets anywhere electorally it will be because the younger generation is all-in on SOCIALISM. Not because he’s any sort of gift or symbol for minorities.
Beto could generate excitement amongst non-white voters but not in a race featuring non-white and female candidates. He will be savaged in the primaries.
These Dummyrat losers just seem to get worse and worse
Only people on the left will ever talk of a Beto launch.
Phoney Beto-Mania has bitten the dust.
Or “Whitey” for short.
Yeah I agree, Flip. The next Dem nominee is going to have a vagina and a substantial amount of melanin.
People dont know if it it BET-OH or BAY-TOW. Least I dont.
