14. You have a much better opinion of Sirota than I. But I know what you mean

 

and you are correct as usual. Sirota's intellectual dishonesty is breathtaking.

6. David Sirota's Attempt To Smear Beto O'Rourke Goes Horribly Wrong

 

In a series of tweets, Sirota implied that O'Rourke was the second-biggest recipient of oil and gas industry donations during the 2018 election cycle:

However, Sirota's claims simply don't add up when subjected to the most basic levels of scrutiny. During his campaign, O'Rourke pledged not to take any money from PACs, and for the most part, he stayed true to his word, eschewing big corporate donors like the ones he was accused of accepting. O'Rourke's commitment to taking small donations from his supporters made him the best-funded Senate candidate in 2018. According to independent, Texas-based journalist Leah McElrath, the numbers Sirota cites come from individual donors - not corporations.

10. The swarming of Beto is unbelieveable, and there seems to be a lot of phony narratives.

 

I'm going to do all I can to make sure they don't take root.

MAHALO!!!!

4. Maybe because he thought Beto had the chops for those positions

 

Not so much for president.

I feel the same way about O'Rourke. Supported him to the hilt during his Senate race. But now he's not even on my list. We need someone who has the ability to solve Republican messes and he doesn't strike me as the one who can tackle them.

9. Beto has a robust record in congress when compared to Bernie and others.

 

If Beto doesn't have the chops, who does? Frankly, I think that we have an excellent field of candidates, Beto just added his name to that field.

Or maybe because Sirota liked Beto then but now that he's running for POTUS.. it's time to smear him?
