Beto O’Rourke announced Thursday morning he is running for president, entering the 2020 race with a call for Americans to look past their differences in order to confront the challenges facing the country.

“This is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us,” the 46-year-old Democratic former congressman from Texas said in a video announcing his candidacy. “The challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater. They will either consume us, or they will afford us the greatest opportunity to unleash the genius of the United States of America.”

The article goes on to state the following:

O’Rourke, who is starting a three-day swing through eastern Iowa on Thursday, said he will hold a kick-off rally for his campaign in El Paso, Texas, on March 30.
His entrance into the race is the culmination of his two-year, out-of-nowhere rise from a back-bench congressman largely unknown outside El Paso to Democratic stardom as a record-breaking fundraiser, the subject of an HBO documentary and the target of two separate efforts to draft him into the presidential campaign. He joins a crowded field of more than a dozen Democrats vying for the party’s nomination. In his announcement video, O’Rourke said he would run a “positive campaign that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us, that seeks to unite a very divided country.”
“We saw the power of this in Texas, where people allowed no difference, however great or however small, to stand between them and divide us,” O’Rourke said.

    Well, it was well-documented that this lying turd wouldn’t dream of running for pres. Up to five times he disavowed even thinking of it. Of course, what do you expect of a flip-flopping DemoCrap? Just like Rino traitor Jeff Flake, Beto’s reply should have been:
    “What can I say…” (shrug, wink, wink) …”I lied.”

    Mr. Genius seems to view himself as our Saviour….the second coming complete with a gobbledegook sermon on the mount.
    Don’t look now but he’s as much a iiar as Jeff Flake was/is.
    In fact, it was well documented that Francis repudiated the very idea that he would run for Pres. Several times, in front of the media, he denied unequivocally that he wouldn’t seek to run. But then, just like Jeff the Flake, he should have replied…. “What can I say….” (shrug, wink, wink)…” I LIED.”
