Political zealots these days seem to think those they support on their side have super powers that can only be used if elected into office. Recently those on the left to far-left side of the American political spectrum took to their least favorite online platform to declare that Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, a Texas politician who has lost every major election he has ran in, would have kept the Austin, TX area power lines from going down during the 2023 Winter Storm.

The catalyst for this outpouring is both the current Winter Storm conditons and the fact that if he had won his most recent political election he would have been inaugurated as Governor of Texas a few weeks ago, almost exactly 14 days before the storm hit.

One of the most popular tweets starts off with: “I’m from CA and I think Beto is one of the best leaders in America and TX rejected him twice.”

Here are some of the tweets that appear to believe Beto would have been able to keep ice from damaging power lines (responses are below)
