    On election night at the bar they played his speech on mute. As the man next to me said "That was no concession speech." I've never seen a man suffer a defeat on that level and look that strong and able.

    No more Texan Presidents.

    No he's not

    Edit: for clarity's sake I'm not doing a bit about not being american myself. Beto will not become president of any country ever

    If he wants to try, he'll never have a better opportunity.

    He got far closer to beating Cruz in Texas than Trump did in 2016. I hope he runs.

    That's R Edward Cruz.

    I will freely admit that Beto has better appeal nationwide than in Texas. He has the looks and the passion. However, he is the epitome of style over substance. There's no there there. JollyRoger is better qualified.

    Why would you want a used chair? You will need to get it reupholstered.

    Too much? How about a textbook example?
