    Beto advocating for doing away with the border wall between El Paso and Juarez is the first good novel idea I've heard from him :twocents:

    There's not many republican politicians in Texas or the US for that matter that I'd describe as likable.

    Maybe Dan Crenshaw.

    Compared to Cruz, though? Cruz is about the least cool, the least sincere, and the least charismatic politician I can remember ever seeing. Not even getting into his policy positions.

    He is the political equivalent of someone who tries to draw charges in a pickup basketball game

    TMB is a large, standoffish group of unfriendly men who fear change and sometimes talk sports. Since 2009

    Except now some of us want nothing short of drastic change but the rest of it still holds up

    Yeah that part's pretty true. They don't come more unlikable than him. Although I think they're are plenty of worse human beings than him in the republican party.

    I know you’re being sarcastic, but having briefly met him in person he is continually as awkward as he was in that clip where he elbows his wife.

    Discussing their voting history and policy ideas isn’t shitting on candidates. It’s the primary, now is the time to be choosy and to stand strong for what I want and believe in. Do you want no one here to discuss that information or to not favor one candidate over the other?

    That is welcomed and should be, but to act like that's all that happens on this board is pretty naive. Regardless it was brought up today because of that Tweet that was posted.

    From the short clip I watched it seems like he's trying to imitate natural passion about something instead of actually having passion or being able to convey it normally. Robotic, basically.

    I don't think it's unfair to say he talks and has similar mannerisms to Obama. Whether it's genuine is a different issue altogether. I like Beto fine, but he's definitely not the most progressive of the bunch and I just don't think he's a better option than some of the others. I kinda feel like a Beto candidacy would either really excite Democrats, or he will just be chalked up as a phony...and nothing in between.

    Either way, Beto is no Obama.

    I agree with your first sentence. But he is being compared to Obama directly by progressives and I just find it as a disservice to Obama who I guess is reaching the phase where people get applauded for bashing him (not that he is above critique, just feel like it is going further than that).
