Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the Latina gift that keeps on giving – to Republicans.
Since upsetting 20-year-incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s June primary, the avowed Democratic-Socialist has become the darling of progressives and in the words of DNC chair Thomas Perez, the future of the Democrat party.
Wait a sec. President Trump recently said that Maxine Waters is the face of that party, so Ms. Cortez must be the post-face lift face of the Democrat Party. Regardless, to quote yet another Democrat face: “What difference does it make?”
Since the 28-year-old Latina first came to the nation’s attention, she has demonstrated the political acumen of a 7th-grade social studies student and the oratorical skills of former Vice-President and longtime former Delaware senator “Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden.
For instance, when recently asked by a PBS host about what she meant by the occupation of Palestine, she said this:
Surely her comment about not being a geopolitical expert was self-deprecating humor since she majored in international relations and economics at Boston University.
It must have been an interesting economics class at BU what with all the talk about “no holds barred, Wild West, hyper-capitalism.”
Further demonstrating her grasp of how the economy works, she had this to say about the record low unemployment numbers under Trump.
“The unemployment rate is low because everyone has two jobs. Unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez said during her PBS interview.
Guess we need to revise the bumper sticker that says “My Labrador is Smarter Than Your Honor Roll Student” to read “My Labrador is Smarter Than Your Millennial Grad. ”
And finally there was Alexandria the Great’s recent appearance stumping with that curmudgeonly Vermont socialist Bernie Sanders in Kansas. In the clip the Democrat diva said she and Bernie were there to help flip the state red.
Apparently Boston University offers primary colors art courses in their curriculum, too.
Whatever color Ocasio-Cortez flips, Democrats should know that embracing socialist candidates like her mean the Democrat Party isn’t in Kansas anymore.
