To borrow from “Dirty” Harry Callahan, Beto O’Rourke is a legend in his own mind.
Robert Francis (Beto) O’Rourke is just one of many in the cult of politicians – along with Hillary Clinton – who simply refuse to exit the game of politics with some dignity. Much like the failed Democratic presidential nominee in the presidential race of 2016, Beto has never considered himself a factor in losing the elections he was trying to win.
Instead, he wants to make sure that any future voters know that it’s their fault he hasn’t won anything of significance yet.
Having already lost to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the U.S. Senate election of 2018, as well as his forgettable run for president in 2020, he’s trying to prove he can fail sideways by running for governor of Texas in a bid to unseat incumbent Governor Greg Abbott in the 2022 gubernatorial election.
The Twitter handle “BetoMedia” posted a tweet Tuesday showing the candidate responding to a group of hecklers during a speech. In his customary fashion of yacking while his hands do the talking, O’Rourke punted back:
“You know, what you’re showing us is that YOU’RE AFRAID OF ME and you’re afraid of the people here. What are you afraid of? What are you afraid of?”
“You know, what you’re showing us is that YOU’RE AFRAID OF ME and you’re afraid of the people here.
What are you afraid of?

No one is afraid of you, Robert. They just don’t like you. And since you are vying to be in control of their lives, it’s important they let you know that, further demonstrating that most politicians – especially the intelligentsia on the Left – don’t understand what words mean.
Awww…. Napoleon Dynamite is trying to sound tough.

No one’s ever been afraid of Robert O’Rourke in his entire life.

O’Rourke has a history of being “stunning and brave.” In an October tweet related to his entrance into the Texas gubernatorial race, he took on all comers, proclaiming, “If you want to debate, or argue, or fight, or F*** with me on politics I’ll take it all day long.”
In a not-so-stunning move, the aforementioned tweet was bravely removed from Twitter.
Gilberto Hinojosa, the state chair of the Democratic Party believes that O’Rourke is their “strongest” option to defeat incumbent Gov. Abbott.
Regarding Abbott, “His prohibition against mask and vaccination mandates have not gone over well with Texans,” Hinojosa claimed. “And with the abortion law, Republicans have raised the anger level of Texas women higher than anyone has ever seen before.”
O’Rourke could find himself up against actor Matthew McConaughey, who has said the idea of launching a run for governor is a “true consideration.” Born in Texas, the actor resides in Austin with his family, and sees himself as “aggressively centrist.”
It’s a bold strategy, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for ’em.
