We’ve tried to not do this, to pick at one person for what they do, what they believe, what they are, what they say, what they think, what they want to do, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has really forced our hand.
She’s the Democrat “gift” to Republicans that just keeps on giving, and giving and giving.
This weeks’ gaffes are already piling up and it’s only the 2nd day of the week! She’s already compared the illegal immigrant caravan coming from Honduras to the US to the Nazi’s annihilation of the Jews. Yes, Alexandria, when they get here, we’ll put them in cattle cars and ship them off to the ovens. Is that what you really believe? Sadly, we think yes it is. You are so insipidly stupid, you have no clue what you are talking about, EVER!
Let’s take your position from a few days ago, that you still don’t realize how wrong you were, and how stupid you sound, for a sitting Congresswoman especially.
Socialist Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was trying to explain her master plan for taking over the government. It is hilarious and scary at the same time. One must remember that this woman is a sitting US Congresswoman, elected to office by the people of New York state. She’s not just “any” bimbo.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — Uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House, we can’t start working in 2020.”
It doesn’t take her many words to create a firestorm. In one sentence, she totally redefined the structure of the US Government as laid down by the US Constitution.
In civics class in high school for God’s sake, we learned that the three branches, not chambers, of government, are the Judicial, the Legislative, and the Executive.
In college, we further learned that the three branches, not chambers, of government, are the Judicial, the Legislative, and the Executive.
And when it was pointed out to her that the House and the Senate and the Presidency were NOT the three “chambers” of government, she got all snarky, smarmy and sarcastic about. Rather than own up to her mistake, or even to say that she misspoke, she instead angrily lashed out at those who actually know what the three branches of government are.
“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd (sic), they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make. That they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare” railed Ocasio-Cortez. Nobody had mentioned healthcare up to this point, but she was sure to get that talking point in there, even if there was less than zero context.
UPDATE: Dec. 1st, 2018 – Alexandria “Medicaid for All” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has, once again, shown her inability to grasp basic facts and use them to come to a logical and factual conclusion. Her latest revelation for the masses:
“In my on-boarding to Congress, I get to pick my insurance plan. As a waitress, I had to pay more than TWICE what I’d pay as a member of Congress. It’s frustrating that Congressmembers would deny other people affordability that they themselves enjoy. Time for #MedicareForAll.” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
What? She suddenly realizes she didn’t like paying Obamacare’s “you can keep your doctor and insurance” tax either, just like the rest of us? Next, she’ll finally realize that Congress gave itself an illegal subsidy so they can pay that healthcare tax – and thinks giving that to everyone will “solve” the problem.
Or how about this dissertation on what she plans to do once she’s sworn (not inaugurated Alexandria) into office in January 2018. MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked her a simple question. A softball as it’s known in the industry, as even a 3-year-old could provide an answer that all could comprehend.
Chris Hayes Question: “You’re going in there at a time when people are talking about how it’s broken, how polarized, both of which I think are true,” Hays said, setting her up. “And you’re also coming really as an outsider at a moment when people are watching what happened today (with Brett Kavanaugh) and want to storm the gates, and you’re going to actually do that,” he continued. “So what’s your plan here?” he offered.
Ocasio-Cortez Answer: “Well, I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance. You know, there’s a lot of inside baseball, inside the beltway, as you always hear that term thrown around. But … there are very few organizers in Congress. And I do think that organizers operate differently. It’s a different kind of strategy. And what it is … is really about organizing … and, and really thinking about that word. Organizing. Segmenting people. Being strategic in their actions. In really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber, instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber.”
I’m not sure what qualifications this previous bartender had for being a Congresswoman, other than the fact that she knows quite a few English words. In 2011 she graduated from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences with a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations and a minor in Economics.
Boston University is considered to be an elite institution of higher education, and they charge commensurate with their standing. Add up the tuition, assorted fees, and room and board and it costs over $70,000 a year to attend. To acquire a degree in International Relations with a minor in Economics from this elite institution of higher education, an undergraduate is required to complete courses in calculus, statistics, microeconomic and macroeconomic analysis, empirical economics plus some assorted electives.
She attended for 4 years. She earned 52 credits. She (or someone) spent $300,000 or more for her “education”. She was told in the BU brochure that she would leave BU with a “firm understanding of core microeconomic and macroeconomic theory” and the “empirical skills that are essential to applying economic reasoning in our increasingly data-driven world.”
Yet her answer for funding government projects and programs is to “just pay for it”? And when we chuckle at her for amusing we the people, she gets snarky and accuses us of drooling all over footage of her looking for gaffes.
And that’s not us drooling all over the footage of you Alexandria, even though you are cute. That’s us crying with laughter at your continuous gaffes, which we don’t have to look for nor wait for. Thank you!
Please, keep ’em coming. 2020 is just around the corner.
