Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 06, 2018

New York Democratic congressional nominee Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will win her general election race easily and become the youngest woman ever in Congress, CNN has projected. ... Ocasio-Cortez defeated New York Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley in the primary election earlier this year. The victory was considered a stunner and helped make Ocasio-Cortez a national political figure. ... Ocasio-Cortez ran unabashedly to Crowley's left in the New York City district and previously worked as an organizer on Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. She is the daughter of Puerto Rican parents and a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

Time will tell if she can live up to the hype. She's smart and a quick study, but the real test will be if she let's her ego get the best of her and becomes too full of herself. Hopefully not. Hopefully she realizes she is a freshmen House member despite the media pushing her as "a national celebrity".

How much more left-wing is she than Crowley? On what issues will she vote differently than he would have? If the difference is ultimately just cosmetic, then Rightocenter has a point: her district will just have lost seniority in congress without a substantive ideological gain.

#16 Gal,

Yeah, her personal ideology is far-left, but what kind of legislation would ever be put in front of her that she would vote differently than most other democrats? Kooky-Left legislation seldom gets out of committee alive, and even if it does, there are plenty of "normal" dems who would vote toward the center on such legislation. And any such legislation that might pass a house vote would get cut down in the Senate. And any such legislation that slipped through the Senate would be vetoed by the president (at least the current one). She seems to be mostly a more palatable far-left "face" than Maxine Waters, who is the current hobgoblin queen of Congress. Ocasio-Cortez needs a media groomer to coach her on her verbal presentation. Her general persona will be her strength, and once she learns the media ropes more thoroughly, the party will trot her out in front of the friendly cameras of CNN and MSNBC on a nearly nightly basis. That will be her strength.

She'll be a member of the Progressive Caucus which is growing and which will eventually take over the Democratic Party. What Republicans fail to grasp is that the blue wave is going to keep coming election after election as the old angry white folks die off. The GOP will be an empty shell in 20 years.

We all should be angry ... we're the richest country in the world and look at what America argues about: foodstamps, who pays for healthcare, and every cultural issue imaginable.

Bernie has integrity, pretty much all other politicians don't.

The trick to all this is galvanizing young voters so they understand they should be pissed off at all this inequality, so when they're old they're not fighting for their healthcare and pensions.

"Checks and balances" didn't force him to pass a watered-down gift to insurance companies instead of truly progressive healthcare reform.

Bills go through congress, not the presidency. Even with strong majorities in both chambers ACA was the most progressive healthcare bill they could muster and it barely squeaked through AND at a tremendous cost of political capital and power.

"Checks and balances" didn't force him not to prosecute bankers for their role in the financial crisis.

Turns out people like access to medical care and being healthier with a lower chance of medical bill-induced bankruptcy, so long as it isn't demagogued as "Obama Care".

It's funny how frequently that happens with the right. They bleat their spoon fed hatred while clutching it tightly to their chest.

Cry me a river. Both parties engage in spin. Democrats have an advantage in that most of the media favors them over the GOP. Dems had an almost perfect storm set of political circumstances to permanently seize healthcare and ACA was the best they were able to muster and ACA has been mostly hollowed out since it was passed.

Another shot at single payer (or the Trojan Horse known as the Public Option) is probably a good 15-20 years away.

Here you, with a connection to the internet, and you're still too dumb to figure out what democratic socialism is. Conservative America in a nutshell.

Unlike you, junior, I don't need the internet. I've been familiar with the DSA and its chairman, Michael Harrington, since the early 70s, when it was founded. Used to watch Harrington debate William F. Buckley on Firing Line, kid.

Once she figures out which hallways the lobbyists hang out in she'll be wearing her own $3k outfits.

I've watched her interviewed a number of times and glad the dems have such a 'brilliant' new Representative ;)

Meanwhile, Republicans have such 'brilliant' Representatives as Steve King, Devin Nunes and Louie Gohmert.

Quite the brain trust, MSgt. /sarc

"Ocasio-Cortez Youngest Woman Ever Elected to Congress"

New Yorkers elected a moron that proves every day she can't do basic math and knows nothing about the job she has been elected too. At least the dead pimp that Nevadans elected can't do any more damage.

If she isn't smiling I find her attractive. For that alone she would get my vote. Better than the 70 year old me you often see in congress.

At 66 I know that 29 year old me did not know near as much as I thought I did. You think all your new ideas are wonderful, with time and experience you find out those ideas were tried and abandoned many times in the past. She now has the power to tell people with guns to make you do what she demands. Frightening!

Not everybody makes those realizations, jdmeth. Look at all the old people who think "Conservatism" works.

Hahahaha says a libertarian. Most of us give up that childish pipedream by the time we figure out Santa isn't real. 66 year old you is as dumb as 29 year old you, I'm certain.
