WASHINGTON, D.C. — “Because he can,” is the sizzling tagline in a new web video targeting failed Texas candidate Beto O’Rourke, according to reports.
The video, produced by Club for Growth Action, can be viewed below.
Big League Politics reached out to Club for Growt Action Pres. David McIntosh.
“He was bailed out of drunk driving and shady influence selling schemes with his billionaire father in law,” stated McIntosh. “Democrats and the liberal media don’t want to talk about his record though, so we thought we’d tell the voters directly. He’s not what he claims to be.”
Is McIntosh is correct? Our research team was able to track down the original sources for the Club’s ad spot, and the results are pretty damning.
Here’s a quick look at what we found.
CLAIM: Beto is a textbook example of a spoiled, little rich kid who got everything he ever wanted and now wants to rock an ethnic image for votes.
True, at least The New York Times thinks so, and where liberal establishment worldview is concerned, it’s the “paper of record” that we are obliged to consult. In a report dated Oct. 29, 2018, TheNYT alleged Beto is “siding with the moneyed elite against angry barrio residents” as part of a deal his father — a billionaire real estate developer — put together. It’s hardly cause to start cheering, “Si Se Puede,” i.e., “Yes we can.”
Beto is also twice as wealthy as Texas incumbent (and victor) Sen. Ted Cruz.
CLAIM: #MeToo? More like, “#MeLast.” Beto is disrespectful to women.
True, and “Freedom dies in darkness,” so thanks to the Washington Post, we can rest easy knowing Beto isn’t injuring the fragile, American female psyche with crass physical jibes. In its Oct. 2 story titled, “Beto O’Rourke’s Broadway review,” readers are told that Beto made “disrespectful and demeaning comments about women.”
CLAIM: Beto is no Barack Obama.
“I knew Jack Kennedy, and you sir, are no Jack Kennedy.”
CLAIM: Beto pulled a “Ted Kennedy” and fled the scene of a crime after crashing into a traffic barrier.
True. What is it with Democrat lawmakers and the bad habit of vehicular mishaps, followed by becoming fugitives seeking alibis? Must be a tradition.
