NOTE: The full debate can be viewed here.
Last night’s debate was a perfect example of why Greg Abbott does not want to debate again. He got a Texas sized can of whoop ass handed to him.
He just got his ass kicked trying to run on his lies and getting called out on them. It was a pathetic showing for someone who has been on the tit of the government his entire adult life, including 8 years as the Governor of Texas. He looked shaken. He looked unprepared. He looked like he was trying, and failing, to sugar coat his lists of failures on immigration, abortion, electricity grid, and every issue that was discuss.
Beto reminded the televised audience (there was no live audience as per Abbott’s demands) that Abbott has been in office for 8 years and yet has nothing but a list of failures, lies, stunts, and conspiracy theories to show for it. Here is just a few points about Greg Abbott’s Texas:
- #1 in total rapes. https://worldpopulationreview.com/state-rankings/rape-statistics-by-state
- #5 in highest home insurance rates. https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/insurance/home-insurance-texas
- #1 in mass shootings. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/articles/2022-05-27/states-with-the-most-school-shootings
- #1 in unisured. https://comptroller.texas.gov/economy/fiscal-notes/2020/oct/uninsured.php
The full list can be found at Texas by the numbers. It ain’t pretty. There were too many points of misinformation and lies by Abbott to list. I highly recommend watching the rerun of the debate to see just how pathetic the governor looked. If this was a little league game it would have been called after 30 minutes. Greg Abbott truly looked crippled. Mentally crippled.
The next opportunity to see Abbott get his ass kicked is in November. That one is on us.
