    I quite agree, and I think those things are best achieved through the platform of the Democratic party. Other parties address those concerns too, but only incidentally

    A good description of the entire Trump Presidency.

    She hasn't made any gaffs? Even leftist journalists are reluctant to ask her questions sine she always Bidens them; but then again the Left is also so infatuated with brain dead Biden that they keep wanting him to run for president . . . so never mind.

    It's recently come out that Trump was "loaned" something like 400 mill to start off, and he has still had to go bankrupt 6 times while running the only business known where people give you money for nothing. Given what he started with Trump would have done better to just put it in the bank. Ocasio-Cortez is presently a Congresswoman in the most powerful legislature that has ever existed, what were you doing at 29?

    Instead, we have government by the inept for the inept. The Framers feared this of democracy and thus the Republic. America has now become a story of how money corrupts politics.

    The left will experience repercussions from Ocasio first. Her followers will include many of Bernie's base.

    You do know that she doesn't have a clue what she's talking about, right?

    There wasn't a Republican running against her in the general. Thus she "won" the election lol. You'll see the same thing on your ballot next time you cast one, there'll be a single selection of a judge or a candidate sometimes. Just that one. It's a ****ing joke.

    You think Trump winning is bad? Imagine Trump winning with no HRC alternative for the Dems LOL. They'd have gone even more out of their minds.

    Showing up at the Minority Leader's door with a gang of protestors before you've even been sworn in isn't a gaffe.

    But then, a gaffe is an unfortunate remark that the press and the opposition run with.

    What she did was a fundamental rookie mistake. The kind of mistake that people who don't listen, or understand the dynamics of the world they are entering make.

    Pelosi isn't worried about her at all.

    Right now, though, she's probably having serious reservations about Ocacio-Cortez's judgement.

    There is a lot more to being successful in politics than appealing to the cable tv news audience.

    I have never said anything negative about her looks

    She has nice tits and I would not mind her hustling drinks from me in any bar I went to

    I am amazed at some of the naieve notions that you post!

    Where do you come off with the idea that there should be a mandate that someone have an opponent in order to stand for public office?

    Who is in charge of lining up a sacrificial opponent to a popular incumbent?

    And how does that work if it's required by law?

    Of course, it takes a special sort of nerve to assert that she is unqualified for office, when you're one of the loudest supporters of a President who was not qualified to serve by dint of experience, character, integrity, or knowledge to serve in any elected office.

    And yet you and yours spend so much of your hate on a in coming freshman with no political base.

    Methinks your protestations are, in fact, whistling through the graveyard.

    But you just go right on raising her profile and making her and her beliefs your personal bogeyman.

    While I do not view things like Social Security, environmental regulations, Medicare, as "liberal lunacy:", you are largely correct.

    This is why there is little point in bothering with flashes in the pan like Trump or Ocasio-Cortez. They get a lot of attention, and make lots of noise.

    But they're sprinters and people who think being on TV is getting things done.

    The real leaders run the marathon while the crowds are yelling at the shiny objects on their screens.

    "We" should not attack her based on her looks because that is for lack of a better word childish and counterproductive and can come. Ack and bite "us" in the ass. She needs to be made aware that she has the right to her own opinion but she is not going to run things. She needs to learn from history that there were a bunch of young Turk **********s who thought that would become the new "establishment" overnight. There were a crapload more of them than just one Miss Know It All NYC.
