Beto O’Rourke Goes Anti-Biden to Get More Votes

Juli Hansen/

Beto O’Rourke couldn’t make it as a presidential candidate. So, he decided to start a bit smaller – and focus on becoming the governor of Texas. Although he won the primaries, he’s now up against Republican incumbent Greg Abbott in the November general election.
Turning the state of Texas from red to blue is not going to be an easy feat – and the polls have consistently shown that Abbott is in the lead.

Some of O’Rourke’s ideas are only loved by the liberals – more gun control, a softer approach to illegal immigration, and more.

As Abbott has recently decided to share the immigration problem with liberal sanctuary cities around the country, he’s been doing even better in the polls. More and more Texans support Abbott’s decision. They don’t like seeing illegal immigrants entering the country only to bring in more drugs, more crime, and take away various resources from hard-working Americans.

O’Rourke isn’t stupid. He knows when he has an opposing thought – and so he’s changing the way that he supports Biden.

More and more Democrats are choosing not to support Joe Biden blindly. It’s a dangerous position considering that the POTUS can’t seem to do anything right. The fact that he’s made the border situation so much worse than during the Trump administration proves that Biden’s not the guy to support.

O’Rourke has chosen to speak out against what is going on at the border. Although he’s not happy with Abbott’s “stunts” of sending buses to the various liberal cities, he does know that it’s necessary to reduce “some of that chaos” that is happening in various border cities.

“We need more help and certainly the Biden administration does need to do more, but the governor of the state of Texas could work with our federal partners to make sure that we have these solutions.”

When O’Rourke was on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show” this past weekend, he said he doesn’t believe that building a border wall or bussing to other cities are viable solutions.
Instead, he wants to work with federal partners and look to reduce the time it takes for asylum seekers to have their cases adjudicated.

There’s one BIG problem with O’Rourke’s plan, however. The federal partners don’t want to work with Texas to create a solution. They don’t see a problem with the border. They don’t believe that there needs to be a solution – and that’s where Biden has failed in the biggest possible way.

It’s plain arrogance on O’Rourke’s part to believe that he can suddenly work with the federal partners for a solution when that’s what Abbott has been trying to do for nearly two years.

As for reducing the time for asylum seekers, that only sounds good on paper. The harsh reality is that most of the people crossing the border don’t qualify for asylum – and they cook have sought asylum in countless countries throughout their journey before entering the U.S.

Abbott and O’Rourke had a debate this past Friday where they sparred over the crisis at the border. Abbott was clear that “Under the Biden administration, we have more people coming across the border than ever in the history of our country.” Using the buses was the only way to get the federal government’s attention. He’s already made arrests, turned people back, and worked to deploy both the National Guard and DPS.

O’Rourke may think that his sudden finger-pointing at Biden is going to help him get the votes, but he doesn’t have a viable plan to fix the problem.

Meanwhile, Abbott has said, “We will continue to have to move migrants because Joe Biden continues to allow more illegal immigrants to come into the state of Texas.”
