The Washington Post did a lengthy interview with Robert “Beto” O’Rourke that came out today.
O’Rourke has gotten a lot of attention since the Texas senate election that he spent an insane amount of money on and yet still lost.
And he’s become very popular with millennials for things like skateboarding and playing the guitar.
But since his name is now being touted as a possible presidential candidate, with even Barack Obama meeting with him, the WaPo finally got around to asking some substantive questions.
It did not go well. They found there wasn’t a lot there. And everyone CNN folks were commenting about it.
But perhaps the most troubling part of the interview was when O’Rourke speculated on whether the United States Constitution might be too outdated after more than 230 years.
From Daily Caller:
When asked to narrow down what the future holds, whether the country will solve its problem or simply avoid them and face a long decline, O’Rourke wasn’t sure.
“Does this still work?” O’Rourke asked WaPo. “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 got mocked last week for instagramming his dental cleaning experience.
He hasn’t yet decided on 2020.
But it doesn’t sound like he’s decided on pretty much anything else either.
