The “Other” Great White Hope?
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. — Dr. Martin Luther King
No wonder Dr. King was a registered Republican, the Dems just can’t get off the race thing if their lives depended on it.
Politico just posted a love note to defeated Senate candidate Beto O’ Rourke called Beto O’Rourke blows up the 2020 Democratic primary and it has some very interesting points in it.
The GOP should be very worried.
First up though is the very notion that we have to constantly talk about race. We know that CNN is downright crazed about racism being they hire people like Don Lemon and Kirsten Powers saying ridiculous things about white people and they still get paid.
The quote from Dr. King above was one of the most profound statements that came out of the civil rights movement of the 60’s and most people in politics it seems have abandoned this. The Democrats for decades have embraced the notion of Dr. King but when it comes to the application if his ideas they throw it off to the side.
In the Politico article, this quote just made me stop and scratch my head.
“All the guy would have to do is send out an email to his fundraising base … and he raises $30 million,” the bundler said. “That has totally changed the landscape for the Tier 1 guys, because now Bernie and Warren, now they have competition. It completely changes the game if Beto runs. And he should run … He’s Barack Obama, but white.”
Now I’m sure mystery “bundler” will say he was alluding to the fact that Beto can raise money like Pres. Obama could. Ok. Why not just say “Obama 2020” or “Obama 2.0″? Why in the hell do you have to say the WHITE OBAMA?
Can you imagine anyone from the GOP saying ” HEY WE FOUND THE BLACK REAGAN?” CNN would have Don and Kirsten calling RACISM on a Special Show for hours on end. That show might crack 25th place in cable news shows for ratings.
We really need to get away from this mentality of every lil damn thing is about race when it is not remotely about race and it needs to be called out each and every time. If we don’t this country continues to slip into an abyss of its own making and it will not end well for the citizens who deserve much better.
Now, the GOP should be really worried about Betomania and there is one very simple reason.
The Lone Star state has 38 electoral votes in play for 2020. Donald Trump won the state by 9 points over Hillary Clinton in 2016. You take those 38 votes away from the 306 total Trump received and he is at 268 and he loses the Presidency.
Even though Sen. Cruz won reelection, he squeaked by with only just under 3% of the vote
The GOP can try to spin that in a number of ways but that is a clear sign of trouble. Even if O’ Rourke gets knocked off as the Dem POTUS nominee he would almost be a shoo-in for the V.P. nod and why would Texas look away from one of their own?
Maybe if Bernie is the top guy and he just freaks people out.
With the 2018 midterms behind us, the road to a Trump 2020 election now has to be mapped out. If not, that the 2018 blue wave that didn’t happen could very well turn into a Blue and Purple sunami that could finish this country off.
