Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has only been a member of Congress for two years. However, she’s the queen of the Twitterverse because she’s got young and impressionable liberals following her. She’s gotten quite the reputation for speaking her mind and calling people out on their opinions.
She’s loud, she’s proud, and she’s usually lying when she opens her mouth.
She’s also one of the first ones to tell you that socialism would be an amazing shift for the country.
Oh yeah, and she’s totally done with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. She’s ready to show them the door because she’s completely over their mainstream ways.
This is pretty bold talk for someone who has only been a part of the swamp for two years. She’s under the impression that she’s been tasked with leading the revolution, and that means getting rid of senior Congressmen and women like Pelosi and Schumer because they don’t hold the same ideals as she has.
AOC complains about the “internal dynamics” of the House because she feels that it’s hard to deal with succession. It is likely that she’s referring to Pelosi, the 80-year-old Speaker of the House. It would make sense that AOC doesn’t get along well with Pelosi, though. Not only is it California versus New York but it’s also a 49-year age gap.
According to her, there are “nefarious” forces that are more conservative than the leaders of the caucus.
This is what AOC is worried about – being conservative. Those who are conservative are also those who want to lead the country based on the Constitution. God forbid we listen to what our founding fathers wanted for the country.
AOC is all about socialism. She wants to be a progressive leader, and that also means abandoning all of the principles that the country was founded on. This is also the same woman who demanded that we get rid of cows because their farts were killing the country.
While it’s safe to say that most Americans would like to see Pelosi and Schumer be shown the door, it is the audacity of a woman with only two years’ experience to demand such changes.
Who would she like to see run things? Is she planning on making a play for Speaker of the House? She has already mentioned running for Senate the next go-around – which would send Chuck Schumer packing.
Even if there are others who agree with AOC, her ideas are too radical. She runs her mouth, spouting off fallacies without even the inkling of checking her facts first.
If she’s planning to oust Nancy Pelosi, she may have to wait another two years. The freshman congresswoman may want change but there are too many who would rather take a more conservative approach. Perhaps this is where AOC warns that there are nefarious forces at work. She sounds delusional as though there are criminals working in the GOP. To do what? Maintain the country the way that it was meant to be?
AOC didn’t end up with any new titles. She wants to grow her power in Congress, yet no one is willing to move mountains for her. Many of the Democratic leaders in the House maintained the positions they’ve held for a decade or more – including Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn.
It sounds as though AOC is bitter. She talks about how there’s a “lack of real grooming” to help the next generation of leaders. She may be right on this part – there are too many Democratic leaders such as Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and Dianne Feinstein who are over the age of 80 and continuing to run.
Where’s the new generation’s voice?
AOC isn’t the voice that we need, but it’s the voice we’re hearing.
There’s a need for younger and newer leadership than we’ve got now. AOC is willing to kick the old leadership out the door, but who do we really want to see replace them?
