The Texas Beto Massacre

Congratulations, Texas; despite a challenge from leftist jackass Master Beto O’Rourke, Ted Cruz is still your senator. Thank. Christ.

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz fended off progressive sweetheart and Democratic challenger Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke on Tuesday by winning re-election to retain his seat as junior U.S. senator to the state of Texas.

Cruz and O’Rourke have been in a closely watched race since the El Paso congressman gained national attention after a video of him applauding NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem went viral, lavishing praise from the Hollywood elite and springboarding him onto the television circuit.

Regardless, Cruz has maintained a steady, albeit tightening, lead throughout the duration of their campaigns.

I sent an email to TXNick last night promising if Cruz lost, Kyle would not be attending the University of Dallas. I guess I can allow him to go there now.

Texas was not the only good news last night, as the GOP added seats in the Senate, and warts like Joe Donnelly, Heidi Heitkamp, Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson went down in flames. That said, the GOP lost the House of Representatives, and Nancy Pelosi will regain power.

One poll reported 50% of voters believed the country is going in the wrong direction. I mean, a booming economy and lower taxes used to be signs of success, but I guess those goalposts were moved.

So, we’re stuck with Democrat obstruction, impeachment hearings, and never-ending frivolous investigations. If you’re looking for someone to blame, look no further than our NeverTrump media friends. Scumbags like Jonah Goldberg, David French, Bill Kristol, Ben Shapiro, etc., etc.

  1. My idiot family members believe this country will implode because of Trump. All they listen to is MSNBC. I believe Trump has evidence on a lot of dems that could get them into serious trouble. Stocking up on popcorn.

  2. Thank you Florida! You got it right, even if it was tighter than Wyatt in skinny jeans. I am also happy that Robert Francis “Beat You” O’Rourke got a big fat goose egg as an ROI for his millions!

  3. I am guessing that depending on the route the house takes, it could very well guarantee that Trump gets re-elected in 2020. I see complete gridlock ahead starting in January. Good thing is that if another justice retires, a conservative will be appointed to take that spot on the high court. Plus Trump is filling the circuit courts with conservative judges also.

  4. Actually, I welcome the gridlock. As Mark Twain observed, when congress is in session our liberties are at risk. If the two houses can agree on anything, then none of our liberties are lost.

  5. Cathy – I hope so, beecause Jerry Nadler was overheard their first order of business is impeaching Trump and Kavanaugh.

    Jim – We laugh at Florida here a lot, but they absolutely came through this election. Big time.

    Ronni – I posited this at AOSHQ last night, Four years of straight GOP control would set up a 2020 loss, I think. This gives people two years to see what they do in power.

    TXNick – Good point. If they’re busy with bogus investigations, they can’t do much else.
