Beto Ditches Corn Dogs and Ferris Wheels to Return to the Campaign Trail

As former congressman Beto O’Rourke returns to the presidential campaign trail, he does so by throwing the book out the window. On Thursday, he announced his comeback to the race for the White House and made it clear that he would not continue in the same fashion he started out with.

He said, “As we had head back on the campaign trail today, I know there’s a way to do this better.” And he added, “and that came to me last week. Someone asked I was going to be heading back to Iowa to go to the Iowa State Fair. Corn dogs and Ferris wheels. And I said, ‘No, I cannot go back for that, but I also cannot go back to that.”

Well, at least he has finally noticed that he isn’t getting very far by what he’s been doing. His numbers in the polls have dropped considerably since the beginning of his campaign with each week becoming more and more dismal. He is being overrun in a field of far too many Democratic candidates, some who simply have more credibility than him, or more recognition, at least and others whose debate performances have shown the nation that Beto is just a has-been who is too mild and tame to take on Trump.

However, his new campaign strategy hopes to prove all of that wrong. Not that it will help his race much.

He said on Thursday, “The kind of challenges that we face in this country at this moment of crisis require an urgency.” So instead of campaigning in the usual place of early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire, he says we will go to all the “places where Donald Trump has been terrorizing and terrifying and demeaning our fellow Americans, that’s where you will find me in this campaign.”

He plans to visit communities in Mississippi next where ICE recently raided and deported several illegal immigrants. He says, “Anyone that this president puts down, we are going to do our best to lift up.” He has already skipped what some would call critical speaking events in early voting states to visit Mexico and lend communities there his support.

He does know illegal immigrants and those who actually live another country can’t vote here, right? It doesn’t matter if he gains their support or not; they can’t show that support legally in the United States.

No matter the case, his rebranded campaign is making a clear point that it will attack the President on every occasion possible, which is something that political experts and pollsters have explicitly warned not to do. Everyone knows that when you make anything about Trump, he will throw it right back in your face and make you eat those words, as he as with numerous other lawmakers and celebrities. It’s just not a good idea.

All of the other candidates know about it and have made efforts to not talk about Trump nearly as much as they could or have before bidding for the White House. Look at Elizabeth Warren. She has made it all across both Iowa and New Hampshire without even mentioning Trump. Biden and Sanders both have done similarly.

Sure, the president gets mentioned a few times here and there, but they make an effort to make their campaign about themselves, what they can do, and not what the current president has done. And it is working well for them. They are at the top of the list, the frontrunners, while O’Rourke and his accusatory mouth sit near the rear of the pack, frantically changing strategy in the hopes of doing even the slightest bit better.

Then again, making himself out to be Trump’s biggest enemy is bound to get him some attention, at least enough that he could maybe win a Senate run against Republican John Cornyn.

But according to O’Rourke, “that would not be good enough.” He said that while he loves his community and his state, “We have to take the fight directly to the source of the problem, that person who has caused this pain and placed this country in this moment of peril and that is Donald Trump.” He added, “I want to be the leader for this country that we need right now and that we do not have.”

Sure, let’s vote for someone who stands for everyone that isn’t America. Nope, not going to happen.

    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

  75. Thank you for every other informative web site.
    Where else may I am getting that type of information written in such a
    perfect means? I’ve a project that I am simply now running on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such information.

  76. “Then again, making himself out to be Trump’s biggest enemy is bound to get him some attention, at least enough that he could maybe win a Senate run against Republican John Cornyn.”
    “But according to O’Rourke, “that would not be good enough.” He said that while he loves his community and his state, “We have to take the fight directly to the source of the problem, that person who has caused this pain and placed this country in this moment of peril and that is Donald Trump.” He added, “I want to be the leader for this country that we need right now and that we do not have.” Bwhahahahahahaha…RAOTFLMVFAO!
    Note to Robert Francis O’Rourke(D Hack-TX) How much longer before your wife and your very rich father-in-law block your access to the proverbial money tree? Get a job loser!

  77. can you actually re-enter a campaign you were never a factor in?
    suggested new quote for the news”
    “I failed once in Tx so I aimed higher. I really thought that showing my true self as an idiot would have resonated with the majority of other idiots. apparently there are not as many idiots as I thought. I was wrong so now I will do the opposite and see if that works”
    good strategy for personal gain, useless to the people you think your qualified to govern.

  78. Duh, yeah Beto. Nobody wants to see you skateboard, watch you get your teeth cleaned, or have your ear hairs trimmed. The fact that you ate dirt after losing to Ted Cruz and gave your wife green baby poop to eat, telling her it was guacamole was TMI. News flash – too late, we simply cannot “unsee” that. But if you insist on passing the time by running in the primaries at 1%, may I suggest you drop the “Beto”, and run with an adult name. Perhaps then you can climb all the way up to 2%.

  79. Damn! I missed it. My guess was Beto was going to place a red rubber ball on his nose and use a mop for hair. That should draw him at least as much attention as he has garnered thus far.

  80. He’s one “mixed up dude” . . . I can’t imagine ANYONE voting for that LEFT LEANING WING-NUT. He’s not POTUS material. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  81. Beto needs 2 mature quiclly
    His four letter words @ press events r not inspiring. Visiting Mexico? As what? He’not a diplomat & never
    could or should b for the USA. Mayb Mex?

  82. Now he does remember that illegals have been given the right to vote and hold public office in many states, most of which are Democrat. But they have still broken this countries laws and politicians that support that should not bother to campaign as they are in violation of the Constitution. Again his party does not seem to have qualms about violating the law either
