Ocasio-Cortez might be the Democrats’ new “Elizabeth Warren”. No, not another fake Indian.
But she is just a dumb politician who got fast-tracked for no reason.
Ocasio-Cortez won a seat in Congress. She’s a real life Leftist Horatio Alger story of how one rises from regular moron to Congressional moron in a short amount of time.
To paraphrase Don King, “Only in Leftist America, Baby!”
But why stop at simple Congresswoman (or whatever they plan to call her)? Why not make Ocasio-Cortez the next Speaker of the House?
As CNS News reported:
Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was still celebrating her victory in New York’s 14th Congressional District Tuesday night when she was asked her thoughts on becoming speaker in the Democratic-controlled House.
The 29-year-old laughed, and told Amy Goodman of the left-wing news program Democracy Now, “I mean, I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew.”
Goodman had asked Ocasio-Cortez her stance on Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) returning as House speaker.
“Who do you think needs to lead the House?,” she asked. “And would you consider the possibility of being the speaker … yourself?”
“I mean, I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew,” Ocasio-Cortez laughed. “I just won my seat.”
“But, you know, what I do think is that in terms of her leadership in context, we need to see what our options are,” she continued. “You know, my fear is, I just wouldn’t want to see candidates running to her right, and that being our only option.”
Democrats are in for a bumpy ride. It won’t take long for Pelosi and others to make mince meat out of this nutcase.
What does Ocasio-Cortez want in leadership? Somebody willing to give away the farm.
The article continues:
Ocasio-Cortez indicated that priorities for her when it comes to Democratic House leadership include Medicare for all, tuition-free college, and a “living wage.”
“And that’s what I’m going to be looking for in terms of where we want to select our next speaker,” she said. “And I know that I certainly don’t want to support anyone who doesn’t have those missions in mind.”
Republicans need to stop criticizing the giveaway program of Democrats, and show how each of these lamebrained ideas cost every taxpayer money.
It’s difficult to fight the concept of getting something for free. But how about we explain what “free” education has gotten blacks?
Or what “free housing” has gotten minorities?
We have two years to dismantle the crazy ideas of the Left. Consider how great President Trump performed, and yet we lost the House.
Where is our ground game? Because if there is one, we need to be exploiting it now.
Let’s target AG positions, and ultimately redistricting. There is NO way Democrats win, when they can’t gerrymander.
I have yet to see a report where Republicans have an advantage anywhere.
In presidential elections, we are told that Democrats have an advantage in the national vote. Also, Democrats hold power in almost all big cities, ergo big media markets.
On the election outcome more generally, Ocasio-Cortez described the Democrats’ taking control of the House as “a very, very powerful check on the authoritarian creep that this administration has been pursuing.”
“And we need to be powerful about it. We need to take this opportunity. This is not the time to negotiate with an administration that systematically and repeatedly violates human rights,” she said. “This is a time for us to have a strong response and to really command the power that we secured tonight.”
Ocasio-Cortez last June defeated ten-term incumbent Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary, and on Tuesday she beat Republican Anthony Pappas to win the Queens/Bronx district seat with 78 percent of the vote. When she takes her seat she will be the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
After her primary win, she told MSNBC that she thought Pelosi was “a candidate to consider” for House speaker, but stopped short of endorsing her.
“Let me win the election first in November before I make commitments,” she said. “When it comes to the leadership of the party, that’s a conversation that I’ll have once I’m an elected member of Congress.”
Ocasio-Cortez said she had spoken to Pelosi after her primary victory “and she was incredibly kind.”
“She said that she loved working with Joe [Crowley] but that she’s actually always wanted younger women in Congress, and that men tend to run at younger ages and women tend to run at older ages, and that she’s actually very happy to see, you know, some new blood.”
Democrats got their new blood.
They should be proud of themselves, because as Tom Perez said, “Ocasio-Cortez represents the future of the party.”
I mean, like…you know.
