The following article, FLASHBACK: Pelosi Is Asked to Name One of Beto’s Accomplishments, Can’t Name Anything, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Failed Senate candidate and former Democrat Congressman Beto O’Rourke has officially announced that he’s running for president.
Of course, in November 2018, Beto said he wasn’t running. So, that should tell liberals a lot about his character, right there.
Here’s his official announcement:
I am running to serve you as the next president. The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us. Say you’re in: http://BetoORourke.com

Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked to name Beto’s signature accomplishemnt while he was a member of Congress.
What happens next is pure Nancy.
She had nothing; no answer.
From Daily Wire:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struggled to name a single accomplishment that former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) had while he was in the House of Representatives when she was asked by a reporter on Thursday during a press conference.
“Beto O’Rourke announced today that he is running for president,” NBC News’ Kasie Hunt said. “What in your view was Beto O’Rourke’s signature accomplishment as a member of the House?”
Pelosi: “Beto brought vitality to Congress…when he came, he came as a real champion for the environment. He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district, he won a primary on that subject.”
Pelosi: “And, also, he was a member of the Armed Services Committee, a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district. In preserving our planet and protecting our people, they’re at least two areas in addition to his vitality in so many different ways.”
Nancy Pelosi was asked what Beto's "signature accomplishment" was in Congress.
She couldn't name anything specific.
Because he only passed one bill: naming a courthouse.pic.twitter.com/tRe2qaIDpA

10,000 proud Americans filled an arena in El Paso, Texas where President Trump spoke on Monday night.
The venue’s capacity was only 8,000.
Thousands upon thousands of onlookers remained outside the arena, watching the speech on oversized screens.
Not far away, failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke held a counter-rally that was sparsely attended.

Beto had the audacity to tell his crowd that “walls don’t save lives, they end lives.”

Unreal, isn’t it?
The people of Texas nearly elected a man to the Senate who wants to ditch the United States Constitution.
O’ Rourke, who said he won’t but probably will run for president in 2020, thinks America needs to start over with new governing documents.
Beto: “I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work. Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”
O’Rourke is vehemently opposed to building a wall on the southern border.
When asked how America can go about solving the crisis, Beto offered a poignant response: “I don’t know.”
Beto has been caught lying about his mother being a “lifelong Republican” and saying he did not flee the scene of a hit and run accident (he actually did).
An undercover video reveals Beto’s team is using campaign funds to aid the migrant caravan making its way through Mexico to the United States.
