Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.
The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.
Im sure Ms. Cortez means well, but theres almost an outstanding rule: Dont attack your own people, said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.). We just dont need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.
Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortezs threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate. But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress. Rank and file are peeved that theres a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesnt deserve.
Haha. Good luck. :D
Hehehe...they deserve her as they created the monster.
1968 Revolution 2.0.
The New New Democrats are upset that the Baby Boomer Democrats followed Jerry Rubin’s lead “from Yippie to Yuppie”.
You WILLINGLY let this turd in... You think Crowley just “lost” that primary? Hell no, this was planned by d party puppet masters.. she’s an empty suit... just a tool like Obama was... for their schemes.
Go Sandy! Don’t let these old white people be the boss of you!
If the latter, she will not be free to cooperate in a manner acceptable to the Democrats in Congress.
In other words, don't behave like a Republican.
That’s where I increasingly come out re: AOC.
But, but, but - the Democrats ARE the enemy. To everyone that works.
Here, Nancy, maybe this will help:
Were Nan and Chuck sending a message to party upstarts by choosing themselves to deliver the response to Trumps address instead of someone younger and more vibrant?
Everybody’s seen this coming. She’s been stepping on a lot of toes.
Ha ha ha Awesome.
I think it's a message they will regret.
Good luck with your entitled Moronials, you created them with your non-stop indoctrination from preschool through university. It is sooo much easier to be a dhimmicrar, just repeat everthing you hear and gang up on and threaten, intimidate, and shame everybody else
Appropriate considering the Bug-Eyed Bolshevik has a bit of a horse-face.
At this point, if you have any critical thinking skills at all, its blindingly obvious this person is a pawn and being groomed to be the next empty suit for the globalists.
I REALLY wish we had true investigative journalism, because there is no way you study this woman’s orbit for the last 2 years or so you are not going to find the usual suspects, long before she was on the ballot.
Star power? Anyone with enough neurons still firing to be able to fog a mirror knows she’s an idiot, not a star. Even the MSM is having problem covering her stupidity.
I think she should be asked if she is going to KNUCKLE UNDER to the old, ailed, leadership of the Democrat Party or is she going to stay true to her vision.
If you have a Twitter account, follow her and become he biggest fanboy.
Encourage her to “keep up the struggle”.
