DNC CIVIL WAR: Lieberman Urges Party to ABANDON CORTEZ, Says She’ll ‘HURT AMERICA’

Former Democratic Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman lashed-out at socialist challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in an op-ed published this week, saying her candidacy will "hurt Congress and hurt America.”

Lieberman penned his piece for the Wall Street Journal, titled “Vote Joe Crowley, for Working Families: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America” in which he urged New York Democrats to support Joe Crowley; who was defeated in the primary process by Cortez just weeks ago.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s surprise primary victory over Rep. Joe Crowley seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party. It doesn’t have to,” writes Lieberman.

“Because the policies Ms. Ocasio-Cortez advocates are so far from the mainstream, her election in November would make it harder for Congress to stop fighting and start fixing problems. Thanks to a small percentage of primary votes, all of the people of New York’s 14th Congressional District stand to lose a very effective representative in Washington,” he adds.

Ocasio-Cortez fired back at her critics this week, saying “People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of: ‘you’re crazy.’”

Why would democrats do that? If they abandon her then they abandon their Venezuela type socialist dreams.

She is the key to that future.

Wait? I thought Sean and so many other Right Wingers were all gung ho on Trump because he wasn’t a politician, the way Cortez isn’t one. I thought the idea for making D.C. better was to quit voting swamp critters back to the swamp?

Ah well.


Also absolutely no one but Republicans cares what Joe Lieberman thinks anymore. Dude campaigned for McCain, killed the public option in the ACA, and then lobbied for confirmation of ■■■■■■■ Betsy Devos.

That’s it…throw the old jew under the bus.


Says no one.

It’s been more than a decade since Lieberman left the party after losing a primary and went on to endorse the Republican nominee for President. The idea that his opinion on the modern Democratic party holds any sway is laughable.
