I told you the Democrats will destroy Ocasio-Cortez. Because if they don’t, she will destroy their party.
So Joe Lieberman (he’s technically a Democrat) drew the short straw, and lashed out at Ocasio-Cortez.
‘I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,’ Lieberman said in a Fox Business Network interview. He retired in 2013 after serving 24 years in the U.S. Senate.
Ocasio-Cortez responded to an attack. According to The Daily Mail, the Freshman lawmaker lashed out at the onetime Democratic vice presidential candidate.
The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the 76-year-old’s sentiment with a four-word rejoinder: ‘New party, who dis?’
In other words, The Ocasio-Cortez said, “I don’t even know you’re your old ugly ass!”
Out with the old socialists and in with the new socialists. Or so it seems with Ocasio-Cortez.
No surprise that Ocasio-Cortez is an “ageist”. Remember, Democrats favor “death panels”. These are the part of Obamacare that won’t pay for certain treatments if you are too old.
Ironically, if Ocasio-Cortez gets her way, Democrats may execute 80 percent of their party. That will certainly narrow down the presidential field, as most of the viable candidates are well into their 70s.
Democrats are rightfully concerned that Ocasio-Cortez pisses off moderates. But she also pisses off Democrats.
The article continues,
Just a few weeks into the new Congress, Ocasio-Cortez is already causing heartburn among centrist Democrats who are wary of her unapologetic proposal to raise the top marginal income tax rate to 70 percent.
The current top rate is 37 per cent. That applies to an earner’s income after the first $600,000. Ocasio-Cortez’s plan would start applying the 70 per cent rate after the first $10 million.
Lieberman said Thursday that she’s too ‘left-left’ to help the Democratic Party be a sustainable political powerhouse.
‘If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House,’ he said, ‘they tend to be – I say, center-left … and that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans.’
Is Ocasio-Cortez too radical for Democrats?
Understand this is the party represented by women who wear vagina hats to protest. So radical is relative, to say the least. And O-C accepts the idea that she’s a radical.
Rising Democratic star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., told CBS News’ “60 Minutes” in an interview broadcast Sunday that she is “a radical” who wants to use her newfound position in Congress to make new progressive laws in America.
Cooper: You’re talking about zero carbon emissions and no use of fossil fuels within 12 years.
O-C: That is the goal, it is ambitious.
Cooper: How is it possible. Are you talking about everybody having to drive an electric car?
O-C: It’s going to require a lot of rapid change that we don’t even conceive as possible right now. What is the problem with trying to push our technological capacities to the furthest extent possible.
Cooper: This will require raising taxes.
Ocasio-Cortez then said this when questioned about her “radical agenda”.
And what happens when Ocasio-Cortez is challenged on her ignorance to issues?
The article explains,
She also responded to critics who have pointed out factual errors in some of her tweets. Interviewer Anderson Cooper noted that her claim the Pentagon’s accounting errors could have funded most of “Medicare for All” received “Four Pinocchios” from The Washington Post.
Ocasio-Cortez fired back: “I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually and semantically correct than about being morally right… Whenever I make a mistake. I say, ‘Okay, this was clumsy,’ and then I restate what my point was. But it’s– it’s not the same thing as– as the president lying about immigrants. It’s not the same thing, at all.”
So Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t lie when she gets facts wrong, just President Trump does?
In truth, Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t thought anything out to its logical conclusion. That’s how Leftists operate; on ignorance.
As for Lieberman, he recognizes her ignorance and called her out for it. If he’s not careful, she may pull a “Trump Jr” on him, and threaten him with a grand jury.
Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t been in office long, and already many Democrats want her gone. But like Democrats created the “entitled” generation, they created Ocasio-Cortez. She will be a lot tougher to get rid of than they think.
