Beto O’Rourke secretly met with Obama to plot something that will make Trump furious

Beto O’Rourke has become a rising star in the Democratic Party.

Despite Ted Cruz sending him packing, the national media lists him as a top 2020 contender.

Now Beto O’Rourke is scheming with Barack Obama to plot something that will make Trump furious.

Obama invited O’Rourke to meet with him in his post-presidency Washington, D.C. offices.

Over the past year, Obama has been meeting with several contenders for the Democratic nomination for the White House in 2020.

Obama’s meeting with O’Rourke likely means he is actively vetting his viability for 2020.

And it could mean bad news for Trump.

The Washington Post reports:

Beto O’Rourke, weighing whether to mount a 2020 presidential bid, met recently with Barack Obama at his post-presidency offices in Washington.

The meeting, which was held on Nov. 16 at the former president’s offices in Foggy Bottom, came as former Obama aides have encouraged the Democratic House member to run, seeing him as capable of the same kind of inspirational campaign that caught fire in the 2008 presidential election.

The meeting was the first sign of Obama getting personally involved in conversations with O’Rourke, who despite his November loss in a U.S. Senate race in Texas has triggered more recent discussion and speculation than any other candidate in the burgeoning 2020 field.

TMZ, the Hollywood-based entertainment website, is now trailing O’Rourke; he is being swamped by calls from Democratic operatives eager to work for him, and other campaigns-in-the-making are eyeing his moves closely for any signs of his intentions.

While Obama has met with several leading candidates, it’s no secret that Beto O’Rourke is becoming a favorite among Democratic leaders and activists.

Obama even stated that Beto reminded him of himself.

O’Rourke’s ability to fundraise, generate earned media, and nearly take down Ted Cruz in red Texas could mean big trouble for President Trump.

    R, interesting discussion between you and D.A.N.. I did some research and found out this credible research after the midterms: Six-in-10 Americans disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President, according to a Gallup poll out Monday. Thirty-eight percent approve of the President.
    The last time his approval rating dipped under 40% was just a few weeks ago, but his disapproval hasn’t been at 60% or higher since around this time last year, in December 2017,

    Visited there, that says NOTHING. Here is the post midterm results: Six-in-10 Americans disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President, according to a Gallup poll out Monday. Thirty-eight percent approve of the President.

    As G. Herbert Bush would have said : “NOT gonna happen!”

    Mary, you are the one who sounds ignorant and stupid.

  8. R says:

    Wow, Byron, Trumpers just can’t handle when someone expresses a different point of view, especially if like Roxanne it is a reasonable point of view, and you seek to SUPPRESS and take away, disrepect their freedom of speech. You certainly obviously cannot make an intelligent argument, so just are resorting to name calling without and credible points whatsoever.

    You post, you walk and you talk like a racist, and clearly you are a racist. Not all Trumpers are racists, of course, but you scream racist ideas from the rooftops. And Racists are some of the most ignorant people who have very little to brag about on their own.

    Breaking news about midterms: The Winston Group, which on Tuesday released an extensive post-election analysis of the 2018 midterms, looking at exit poll data from the National Election Pool and Edison Research, along with our own Winning the Issues survey, done Election Night. They assessed the 2018 campaign that began and ended with the fight for the election narrative. Our conclusion: This was not a base election. Independents decided the outcome, breaking for Democrats by 12 points.

  11. reality check says:

    You, Kash are the summary of GOP strategy – – just demonize and tear down others, and never, never EVER focus on the criminals and corruption in your own party. Like the Nazis did with the Jews and Trump did with Mexicans and other minorities, you tear others down rather than having a salient platform of your own. Democrats are for providing people medical care, for social security and for providing a more level playing field of opportunities while GOP are just anti about people and programs. Bash, denigrate, whine and tear down the government.

    From candidate one to 100, how many Presidential candidates compete for Poll numbers when voters will be taking their boring time at who to pick.

  13. D.A.N. says:

    Well you need to update where you get your lies from. Rasmussen had him at 50% disapproval. That means a 50% approval rating.

  14. Ernst says:

    Beto O’Rourke is first a businessman. He saw all the millions donated to him in his Senate loss (much of which he kept) and now has visions of the many more millions he can acquire with a Presidential run.

  15. D.A.N. says:

    By the way R, here is the man and the rating.
