Aoc plays a game about corruption in congress


#249

Then how do you know whether or not you should be concerned?


#250

Based on the words and actions of those freaking the ■■■■ out over a rep that has only been in office for a month


#251

According to wikipedia, she graduated cum laude in international relations and economics .


#252

Because I’m not chicken little. What are the chances of her proposal even making it through the House much less becoming law? Zero?


#253

Seems as though we are back to the mocking.

In that short month, she has laid out a set of objectives and a timeline. Not fear, incredulity. Mocking. Taunting in some cases.

And cringing from her own side.

92% of democrats polled supported her program before even seeing it. A reaction is required.


#254

Given the support in the polls, definitely not zero. You are underestimating her. That is a mistake.


#255

Nope zero. Even if passed it is a non-binding measure without teeth.

And how is it a mistake for me to underestimate her?


#257

Until it’s not. She is not going to be denied. She is a voice of a new era. A leader and change is imminent.


#258

Well you sure are impressed


#259

So she should just be ignored? Ok.


#260

Very. I’ve seen it before.


#261

People are confusing goofy and ditzy for stupidity.


#262

Could be, but I don’t think she’s either.

She’s an observable reaction to the situation; just like Trump was. She is modeling his campaign success.


#263

Dont worry you are safe for 8 more years.


#264

Nobody is “learning” anything from AOC, least of all us. We are simply using her as a proxy for pre-existing ideological divides. There is nothing new. And the media is using her as click bait to make money.


#265

There’s nothing to learn from the green new deal. It’s a rallying cry for hard left and hard right. That’s it. There’s not supposed to be any substance.


#266

Meh. She’s a convenient foil to trump riding a social media wave. When he’s gone, her appeal will dwindle. You drastically overestimate her. That’s not a mistake by the way. It’s a harmless misassessment.


#267

So…you think she was asking those pointed questions because SHE needed to figure it out? :rofl::rofl::rofl:


#268

I want her out there talking and speaking her mind…she might be best thing that happen to repugs.

Right now she a gift that keeps on giving.


#269

What are you mumbling on about?
