Let me start out by saying I LOVE THIS WOMAN. She is a one-person wrecking ball that is going to get blown out politically and there is not enough popcorn and raisinets in the world to snack on while this “you know what show” rolls downhill.
As I wrote here earlier today at Red State I think the tides are turning on wonder gal AOC as her fellow Dems are turning on her. AOC Should Leave The Democratic Party According to Froma Harrop. Does AOC Have The Guts?
Well, now we have a clearer answer to why.
Seems our heroine from the Bronx is really inflating her importance in Congrees and is not supporting other members of the Democratic party. You know, the very party that is in the control, which gives her the perks that she now enjoys as a member of the MAJORITY in the House of Representatives.
She is kicking her fellow Dems in the noggin by supporting some of their opponents.
This is better than anything Lawrence O’Donnell wrote on The West Wing.
From Fox News…
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has already topped the fundraising charts in her short time in Congress, but the liberal darling won’t donate a cent of her millions to Democrats’ House campaign organization — a position that has rankled some of her colleagues, Fox News has learned.
Instead, Ocasio-Cortez is building her own fundraising operation for fellow progressive candidates to bypass the official Democratic Party infrastructure. Already, she’s actively funding primary challengers to oust certain Democratic colleagues.
“Sometimes the question comes: ‘Do you want to be in a majority or do you want to be in the minority?’” Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., told Fox News, when asked about AOC’s stance. “And do you want to be part of a team?”
Isn’t she dreamy?
Now I actually agree with Cortez that she should not be automatically expected to support every lil damn thing her party leaders want her to do, which includes giving them hordes of cash. She represents her district which happens to be filled with crazy people who entrusted her with this seat. Lady has to represent.
AOC is only a freshman though. She barely knows where all the bathrooms are at the Capitol and she is dictating party policy like she has been there as long as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As I wrote earlier I’m inclined to believe that Pelosi has just about had enough of AOC and her progressive cheer squad and after the Senate disposes of with the Impeachment it becomes payback time.
One of the worst kept secrets in all of everywhere is that New York is going to lose one or possibly two seats after the census is completed this year. That means in 2022 it will be a musical chairs congressional version and who wants to lay odds that AOC district will be the one vaporized? Democrats run New York and they prefer working with Republicans who are subservient than a former barkeep who thinks she knows the drill politically.
Even though Nancy is from California you don’t think she knows the phone number to the New York Governor who is the brother of Fredo Cuomo from CNN? Deals can be cut with that crew.
AOC is burning bridges at a fantastic rate and quite frankly it is amazing to watch. I have seen lots of people come into Congress with a lot of fanfare but never someone who is so inexperienced and is too naive to understand that she is not all that and a bag of political chips. There is a learning curve and part of that is playing nice with your colleagues even if you don’t like their ideas or their personalities.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, I raise my glass to you and wish you nothing but good health and success on your mission to blow up the Democratic party in 2020. I would love to say that this was a plan devised by Geroge Soros but I bet he even is pissed at you for this.
Only in America!!!
