AOC says that the Democratic party is incompetent and do not know how to run a campaign.
She denies that it is the extreme position of the progressives that led to the defeats in the House claiming that they just didn’t know how to run their campaigns.
It wasn’t the $93 trillion green new deal, free healthcare for all illegals, or even paying a guaranteed wage to people unwilling to work
No, their campaign buttons were too small. The signs are too big. And the candidates are too stupid to tell the difference.
People love open borders and unlimited illegal immigration and BLM and antifa riots.
“There’s a reason Barack Obama built an entire national campaign apparatus outside of the Democratic National Committee. And there’s a reason that, when he didn’t activate or continue that, we lost House majorities. Because the party — in and of itself — does not have the core competencies, and no amount of money is going to fix that.”
AOC claims that if Joe Biden does not fill up his cabinet with progressives, they will lose the 2022 midterm elections. I am not so sure about that but I am sure that in two years the electorate will turn against Democrats if they should try to pass an extremist agenda. In addition, with Mitch McConnel as majority leader in the Senate, it will be very hard to get extremists confirmed.
Of course, I believe that even as Biden and Harris destroy the economy, they will simply blame it on Trump. In fact in everything they mess up will be Trump’s fault.
The Democrats owe Wall Street big time, so you can expect our job market to be flooded with cheap foreign labor. And let us not forget China. They will likely see a loosening of sanctions and tariffs. Iran will get their sweetheart deal back.
In a Sunday interview on CNN’s State of the Union, Ocasio-Cortez said that no Democrats within her party campaigned on “socialism or defunding the police in this general election.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who defeated incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY) in the 2018 midterm elections and won re-election in her district by more than 50 points, endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) over former Vice President Joe Biden in the Democrat presidential primary.
It will be interesting to see if Joe Biden eventually wins the election. It would be even more interesting if Trump does. The Democrats would go nuts for another four years and America will prosper.
