Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
« on: March 07, 2019, 10:14:21 pm »



The most beautiful Woman alive.

Intelligent, sexy, classy, and with a genuine concern for the well-being of the American people. 

I could honestly watch her speak for hours.

I have not listened to her speak.   I understand she self-describes as a kind of socialist.

Honestly, to me this is the same problem as Trump but the flip side: personality and surface perceptions over ideas and critical discussion and collaboration, candidate as product.... I find it to be a bad strategy for FOX & friends to vilify her. 

If a country is going to be this stupid, then their government needs to be redesigned so that the voting system mirrors the importance of American Idol.

And to be fair, I haven't listened to her ideas and they may be as simple as turning back the clock 20 or 30 years to higher taxes etc.  The root problem is still that the system is mismatched with the people that drive it, serve it and benefit from it.

"I know nothing about her, but here's what I think is the problem with her"

Michael Hardner, you finely demonstrate exactly what is wrong with politics and the internet.

I do feel that there's a cult of personality building around her, the same as with Donald Dump or Bernie Sanders-- that people have fallen in love with her, rather than with the policies or ideas she's presenting.

I have been highly amused and impressed by her preternatural ability to trigger the snowflakes of the right and the alt-right.  She is 28 years old and has been on the job for 2 months but they treat her like she's the most powerful and most dangerous threat in politics.  She gets more ink than Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer combined, which is probably a great thing for Nancy and Chuck.

Not exactly fair to say I know nothing about her.  I think you can read a bit about her and get the gist of it:

Junior Congresswoman
Shine of the new
Vilified by FOX & friends

Was anything I wrote incorrect or lacking due to not reading all of her tweets ?

Sorry kimmy.  You have written something similar to me and since you haven't read all her tweets you are unqualified to comment as per cyber.

Sheís about as socialist as a Canadian red Tory who cares about the environment. 

ETA - thatís probably a bit of hyperbole...   maybe sheís as socialist as a moderate NDP member...

This is exactly the kind of branding that Republitards and the FOX News gang are trying to put on AOC.  I have a feeling that it will backfire. 

Some of their attempts to mock her have already backfired.
"lololol, she was a bartender!"  -- yeah, well, an awful lot of young middle class voters have worked in service industry jobs.
"lololol, she can't afford to rent an apartment in DC!" -- yeah, well, an awful lot of young middle class voters can't afford rent.

she embodies the Dunning-Kruger effect... a real gift for the right-wing/conservatives - and for whatever else stands for the Republican party today.

Genuinely curious-- can you point to any examples that demonstrate that she's actually a dumb-person who thinks she's smart?

... a real gift for the right-wing/conservatives - and for whatever else stands for the Republican party today.

She's something they can campaign against, but I'm not sure she's a gift for the right.  She seems able to energize left wing voters the same way Trump energized the right, and that's not good for the right.  If AOC has a silver lining for the right, it's that she might divide leftist Democrats against centrist Democrats. But that's a divide that's been going on for a few years, since the Bernie vs Hillary primaries turned nasty.
