Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America
Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez in November …
As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.
She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.
Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:
It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.
Firing Line PBS Margaret Hoover: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Steps in It, Called Israel “Occupiers of Palestinian Land” & Says Capitalism Will “Not Always Exist” (VIDEO)
SO THE FUTURE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS A CLUELESS SOCIALIST?
This weekend Alexandria Ocasio Cortez held an interview with Firing Line and Margaret Hoover on PBS. Let’s say it did not go very well. As reported st the Daily Caller, the 27-year old new found darling of the LEFT called Israel occupiers of Palestinian land. When pushed on the comment, Ocasio Cortez mumbled and struggled to give an answer then ultimately admitted that she does not know anything on the issue of what she was talking about. Imagine that? She is a novice who has been thrust into the limelight because the Democrats have nothing. She then, sans a clue, went on to say that that unemployment is low ‘because everyone has two jobs” and “unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week, and can barely feed their kids.” Needless to say, this is not how the unemployment rate works, bit what could you expect from a novice, clueless socialist.
Establishment Democrats are in deep worry mode as this far-leftist socialist is becoming the face of the Democrat party and her insane rhetoric is going to be used in political ads for the midterm elections. It has already been said by DNC Chair Tom Perez that she is the future of the Democrat party, yet other Democrats realize she is divisive and tearing the party in half. Americans might want to take this into at when voting for the 2018 midterm elections, the future of the Democrats is socialism.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’
Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez explained, lamenting that people are employed but having to work long hours, “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world,” she continued.
In an ironic twist, just two weeks before the bungling interview, Ocasio-Cortez had been bragging on twitter about her economics degree and wondering if her assumed future House colleagues would be able to match her educational prowess. In a tweet, the socialist asked “Wondering: How many other House Democrats have a degree in Economics like I do? Trying to find who out here is going to be in the Gini Coefficient Appreciation Squad.”
Ocasio-Cortez graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences just a six years ago
WAY TO WIN OVER THE INDEPENDENTS …
And the LEFT continues to act insanity, this time their ICE protest in Ohio consisted of chants of “f*ck the police.” To those Independents and Democrats that wonder what happened to their party and why it has ignored you, take a good look at what the LEFT has become today.
Protestors gathered in Columbus, Ohio to protest the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) by erecting a 32-foot-tall tripod, but began chanting “fuck the police” after police officers deconstructed the tripod Monday morning.
In a Facebook live video published by WSYX ABC 6, protestors can be heard chanting, “fuck the police,” repeatedly as police officers broke down the 32-foot-tall tripod and placed it in the back of the police van.
In total, eight people involved in the protest were arrested according to Marshall:
SORRY BERNIE SANDERS, ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ AND THE LEFT, AMERICA IS A CAPITALIST NATION …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Sorry Bernie Sanders and the new darling of the Democrat party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Democrat party finds itself moving farther and farther to the left and socialism as an overwhelming majority of Americans prefer a free market economic system. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez previously stated that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “represents the future of our party.” Really, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, Ocasio-Cortez, is the future of the Democrats in a country that prefers free markets? Democrats are about to drive off the political cliff. If any of you actually thought or think self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has a chance of being elected, you are delusional. The idea that Democrats are purposely attaching themselves to socialism is amazing.
In New York, a Democratic Socialist candidate just unseated a near-20-year veteran in one of the state’s Democratic congressional primaries, and she contends she represents the Democratic Party’s future. But voters reject socialism in no uncertain terms.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 74% of Likely U.S. Voters prefer a free market economic system over a socialist system. Only 13% think socialism is a better economic system, and just as many (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Blue wave, huh?
YAWN … Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton & Bernie Sanders Top 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates in New Poll
POLL SHOWS THAT 3 DINOSAURS LEAD FOR DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR 2020 …
According to a recent Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, with more than two years to go before the 2020 presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats, Hilary Clinton is second and Bernie Sanders third. That is correct, the same old tired usual suspects are the leading candidates to take on President Trump in 2020. So the Democrats have the following as their best presidential candidates. Crazy Uncle Joe Biden, did we forget to mention CREEPY was first with 32%, Hillary Clinton, two time presidential candidate loser and the women who lost lost in the greatest political upset in history was second with 18%. And socialist Bernie Sanders was third with 16%. Doesn’t that just make you want to run out and vote? Did we mentions that for the 2020 elections, Biden will be 77, Hillary Clinton 72 and Sanders 78. What is this Jurassic Park 10? Honestly, I just can’t see Hillary running again after her 2016 debacle and her never getting over her loss. Sorry, but Biden and Sanders are too old. However, something tells me that Sanders will run and take the Democrat party of the liberal socialists cliff.
Others making the poll and showing the further lack of a Democrat bench were Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was fourth with 10%, who will be 71. She was followed by Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) 6%, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg 3%, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) 2%, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each with 1%. Wow, that’s it? Others who have been rumored to be running are Former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, Former U.S. attorney general Eric Holder, Former Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick.
With more than two years to go before the next presidential election, former Vice President Joe Biden is the early favorite to represent the Democrats and try to unseat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to a new poll.
Biden was the choice of 32 percent of Democrats in a Harvard CAPS/Harris June poll that was obtained by The Hill. The party’s 2016 standard bearer, Hillary Clinton, came in second with 18 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., was third with 16 percent.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was fourth with 10 percent of the vote.
Biden, who would be 77 on Election Day in 2020, has been one of Trump’s most vocal critics since the 2016 campaign. On at least two occasions, the former vice president has indicated that he wishes he was back in high school so that he could physically confront the president over his comments about women. (Trump responded in a tweet that Biden would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way” if they fought.)
Although Clinton has given no indication she intends to run again, both Biden and Sanders have not ruled out a run in 2020.
Among other Democrats included in the poll, The Hill reported that Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., got 6 percent, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg got 3 percent, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., got 2 percent, while Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo each got 1 percent.
