Beto O’Rourke just admitted to this career-killing mistake

Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke is rumored to be jumping into the Presidential race.

But he might want to think twice.

That’s because he just admitted to this career-killing mistake.

O’Rourke recently gave an interview on MSNBC where he called for tearing down El Paso’s border wall.

Yesterday, he backtracked.

At a recent public appearance, O’Rourke supported a wall in certain border areas and said it was necessary.

Breitbart reports:

Less than a week after calling for the border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, to be taken down, former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) backtracked on Tuesday, saying he believes “there is a role for physical barriers in some places” along the U.S-Mexico border.

“I think there are in some places a need for a physical barrier, and here’s what I would do: I would work with local stakeholders, the property owners, the communities, those who actually live there, to determine the best security solution,” he reportedly said after receiving the “El Pasoan of the Year” award, according to CNN. “We saw in El Paso a solution in search of a problem imposed on us by people who did not live here.”

According to the Associated Press, O’Rourke claimed that he is “just as concerned about border security and safety as anyone” because he is raising his “kids a short walk from the U.S.-Mexico border.” But O’Rourke reportedly insisted that “we won’t achieve that safety and security through walls.”

This could ruin O’Rourke’s chances.

Democrats are for open borders and believe enforcing immigration law equates to white nationalism.

O’Rourke’s call for some limited form of border security will alienate him from the racial grievance and pro-amnesty activists that make up the majority of the Democrat Party base.

O’Rourke may think he needs to make these arguments to be viable in a general election, but they will actually sink his chances in a general election.

    We, as conservatives, spend our time dismissing O’Rourke as an idiot or a radical leftist or. . . whatever ! The reality of it all is that 50% of the U.S. voting population WILL VOTE FOR HIM if he wins the Democrat nomination. His beliefs and plans are applauded by ALL of those on that side of the aisle. So if we defeat O’Rourke, there are 15 more spouting the identical political dogma. Warren, Harris, Castro and a myriad of other Democrat hopefuls would further border plan as him, if given the opportunity. Let’s cut the name calling and dismissing radicals as insignificant . . . it doesn’t work. Look at the results of the 2016 mid-term elections ! The Republicans are STILL reeling after key seats were lost to a party and their candidates that should have been beaten into submission. We have no one to blame but our arrogant attitudes and our unfounded belief that we couldn’t lose control of the House with likes of AOC and Ilhan Omar. Ask yourself . . . have we changed our attitude of arrogance since that last embarrassment ? I don’t think so . . . but time will tell !

    I live in Texas. I have lived here all of my 67 years as a matter of fact. The drug and illegal alien traffic thru East Texas is astounding. Small city select law enforcement and city Government officials are in the back pocket of Cartels. The damage being done by this is almost unseen by the general populace while focusing on the incorrect term “illegal Immigrant”. Immigrant is a legal term. We know who they are. “Illegal Aliens” we do not. They are the shadow people perpetrating repeat criminal offenses and by in large getting away with it.
    A wall worked in ancient Jerusalem and still works in the state of Israel. It worked in China when it was needed against the Mongol invaders.
    Those who ignore History are doomed to repeat it.

      Well said Big R.
      Its really funny actually. Most people lack COMMON SENSE. And those who can’t see this are flat out idiots.
      I’m also a texan. I’m not EVEN gonna divulge into the major issues we have with illegal immigration. I own a construction company. I DO NOT employ illegals. But I can say without a doubt, they steal work from us, the LEGAL business owners.
      They will do work for a 1/3 of the cost we can do it for. WHY? They aren’t insured, licensed, no payroll tax, etc.
      The crime they bring is ridiculous on top of the regular crime we already deal with.
      This BETO IDIOT probably never held a real tax paying job. Hence he is bad for texas!
      TEXAS needs to get off their asses and keep this state red.
      I’ve been told verbally by many people across this nation that TEXAS is this counties last hope. Guns, and the citizens here have a reputation throughout this country apparently that say hell no to the governments crap.
      We NEED to hold this state together.
      Of course we dont want a revolution or a civil war, but we need to say that we are done!!!

        Well stated. Beto boy has no idea the everlasting pain of losing a child. You grieve when your parents die but that pain does not even come close to the grief of losing your child no matter what age they are..

  4. Gregory Sullivan says:

    Bozo O’Roarke is a stupid idiot. Anyone who advocates borders with no barriers at all as well as no scrutiny of anyone who crosses it is insane and should be halled off to a mental institution . I thank God that he doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of becoming our president.

    • Big R says:

      Who is bankrolling this village idiot?
      The citizens n Texas do not really trust Politicians that talk with their hands and use emotional barrages of misleading drama. he is a Media Diva. Very little substance.
      Follow the money.

    Just like all the mindless Democraps, they change their mind as the wind changes. I was going to say as often as they change their underwear, but from the smell of them, I don’t think they change them often.

    Frank O’Rourke is a buffoon!

    • stephen says:

      Most walls, have doors. In the case of our southern border we want a wall, so that people that do choose to come to this country legally have a chance to come through the doors like all LEGAL IMMIGRANTS in the past. The problem is not that we don’t welcome immigrants, we do not welcome people who want to violate our laws and attempt to come in illegally and then expect us to be welcoming , gracious, and extend them all manner of free stuff.

  12. Matthew Dunn says:

    WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE A STAND.
    We in Texas need to send a message.
    We need to send armed citizens to the border. ( ASSIST IN PROTECTING OUR ICE AGENTS WHO ARE BEING SHOT AT, AND PROTECT OUR CONTRACTORS IF NEED BE )
    We need to send contractors to the border.
    We need to pay for our own wall.
    We need to send this message to government that we dont need their permission to protect our own families.!!!!!

    • ROBERT says:

      agreed 100%

    • Edward Suggs says:

      Well said Matthew thank you, it don’t look good the Democrats care more about illegals than to do their own citizens of the United States stand your ground!

      • Franklin says:

        Edward, the Democrats call the illegals “Dreamers” and call the American Citizen “Deplorable” so you are exactly correct in your statement

    • Nate says:

      Why not cede Texas to Mexico? And let these exuberant neo fashists have a go at governing ???

      • The Real M says:

        Nate, Nate, Nate, Be careful what you wish for! America can’t afford to give Texas to Mexico! Do you want to bankrupt America? There is too much money from Texas to the govt. from people and Corporations. It is the 2nd largest state in the nation and one of the richest states in America. We have to keep it if we are to be able to stay out of bankruptcy! I am sure you were kidding?????

    Beto is a Stupid Idiot and could never win

  14. Randall Clark says:

    I wouldn’t vote for Beto, to work off the back of a garbage truck!!!

  15. The Real M says:

    Oh Lord, these Democrat wanna be’s are cookie cutter images of each other. They ALL blow in whatever direction they think will move them to the front of the. pack. If they get flack from a position, they change course while trying to dig out of the hole they created. Flip flop, flip flop, flip flop, that’s what it was called when John Kerry was running and
    f-l-i-p f-l-o-p-p-i-n-g! Who remembers that?
    Bafoon Beto knew he had screwed up royally with his “border walls kill, tear down the wall” speech! He had already made a fool of himself trying to be a rapper, skate boarder, musician, etc. He can cater to millennials all he wants but, while he is doing that he is losing mature serious people. He is a work in progress and will never get beyond that stage! Atta boy bafoon Beto!

    You folks need to read the coments you are posting. I am a very old real
    Republican that worked with Dems
    across the asile to do for all not a select few. The bunch that seems to run today’s GOP are, in fact RINOs.

    The Democrats WANT the drugs.

  18. JJ says:

    HEIL HITLARY!!! Beto and Alexandra SHOULD simply move to Mexico or some place further south if they they’re so convinced that it’s so great down there. Better yet, WHY DOESN”T THE UNITED STATES SIMPLY ANNEX ALL OF CENTRAL AMERICA AND GIVE EVERYONE WHO LIVES THERE AUTOMATIC US CITIZENSHIP. I wonder how quick these loonies would change their tune if they found out that 3/4ths of these folks in those southern portions of our continent decided to call themselves that hideous curse word REPUBLICANS!!! The DUMBOCRATS WOULD IMMEDIATELY BE BITCHING AND SCREAMING TO ALL HIGH HEAVEN FOR A 2500 MILE, 40 FOOT HIGH BORDER WALL. HH

    • Jerry Hampton says:

      This woman should be removed from Congress for her comments. There is not place for the type of intolerance she exudes. If she were a Republican, she would have already been censored, and likely removed from all the committee’s she is serving on. But there is no double standard!!

    NEVER VOTE FOR THAT LYING DEMOCRAT COMMUNIST!!

  23. Jeanine says:

    Democrats are for open boarders as long as President Trump is for closed boarders. They were all for a wall when Obama was for a wall, but not now. And since there is plenty of tapes with them saying they are for doing something to stop all the illegal’s, and support a wall, it just makes them look little and childish now. I believe in term limits, so they can’t make a career out of being in congress, and maybe some GOOD people would run if they didn’t have to run against ones that have been there for years. There are very few in congress that don’t need to go. And I might be anti politician, but the last few years have made me very ANTI DEMOCRAT. I would not vote for any democrat no matter how good they might be, thanks to the scum that are in DC right now. And anybody being sworn in to congress should have to do it on the BIBLE. That is what American’s have always used. And if they can’t use the Bible, then they shouldn’t be in congress.

  24. O’Dork is an idiot, always has been, always will be.

  25. No walls around Beto’s home? I doubt it, and I’ll bet you him and his family are protected from ILLEGALS 24/7/365 by armed security and high tech equipment. HYPOCRITE as they all are.

  26. JanW says:

    O’Rourke and Ocasio-Dimwit should run together on the “stupid” party and leave the country.

  27. Laurie Jenkins says:

    We do not need any more slimeballs in our government. WHERE ARE THE GOOD AMERICANS?

  28. Carol Bowers says:

    Totally agreed.

  29. Dave Miedema says:

    Beto O’Dork is, save for the new York Nitwit, the dumbest Democrat of prominence at this time.
