An early word about the Texas elections

leave a comment »

According to some national reports, the “Beto” wave is about to turn Texas blue.  This is based on some very good fundraising numbers for Mr. O’Rourke, the very liberal man from South Texas.

Congratulations to Beto, but will it make any difference?  I don’t think so.  Let me tell you why:

1. The polls show Senator Cruz ahead of Representative O’Rourke, anywhere from 7 to 11 in the last five polls.  Beto has not hit 45% in a single poll yet.

2. The actual votes cast show that Beto has “problemas” that money can’t fix.

Back in March 2018, both sides settled their U.S. Senate choices in the first round.

The first round numbers show that Representative O’Rourke got 642,000 (of the 1 million Democrats who voted) versus 1.3 million that went for Senator Cruz.

We should add that there was no suspense on the GOP side, whereas Mr. O’Rourke spent a lot of money but lost almost 40% of the vote to a couple of strangers.

In other words, I have a lot of friends who skipped the GOP primary on the grounds that there weren’t contested races statewide.  Many of these same friends are planning to vote in November.

Like sports, you never assume victory until the game is over.  I’m sure that the Cruz campaign knows that well and will hit the airwaves soon, reminding voters that Beto is a very liberal man.

Last, but not least, let’s not forget that the popular Governor Abbott will be on the top of the ticket here.

A Beto wave?  Probably, but not with the people who vote in Texas.

Call them ‘comunistas’ not Democrats

leave a comment »

As my mother loves to say: “Ya vimos esa pelicula!” (We’ve already seen this movie). Yes, our parents and grandparents did indeed.

We are happy to see this: “If Ocasio-Cortez is a Party Model, ‘The Dems Won’t Have a Very Bright Future.

Glad to see Senator Lieberman back in the saddle. He is a sane voice in a party that is quickly going insane.

The biggest problem with Miss Ocasio-Cortez is that she is not very smart, whether she is talking about Israel or economic issues, as David Catron wrote:

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the legacy media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party.

Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless.

She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Ocasio-Cortez is a joke and not a funny one if you believe that politics is a place for the informed. Her primary victory makes two points:

  1. The left, the people we used to call socialists, are now the source of enthusiasm in the Democratic Party; and,
  2. Mr. Lieberman, and other serious Democrats, need to throw out these leftist ideologues. Eventually, leftists like Ocasio-Cortez will destroy the party or make governing impossible. Can you imagine how self-destructive it would be for a Democrat majority trying to impeach President Trump in the middle of a booming economy?

Frankly, not long ago people like Ocasio-Cortez would have been denied entrance to the Democratic Party. They would have been told to take their socialism down the street somewhere else.

It’s time for the Democrats to cut ties with these people. The net result may be short-term losses. However, it will give centrist Democrats an opportunity to compete in the center, a far better place to wage elections between San Francisco or the Bronx.
