Ocasio-Cortez Needs a History Lesson

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2019/03/ocasio-cortezs-history-lesson.php
Quote:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wallows in ignorance the depth of which is hard to fathom. The fact that this woman graduated from high school and college is an ongoing rebuke to our educational system. Her most recent howler related to the 22nd Amendment, which limits presidents to two terms in office. AOC helpfully explained that it was passed in order to prevent the re-election of Franklin Roosevelt:

AOC quote: "They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt dd not get reelected."

As pretty much everyone knows, the 22nd Amendment didnít prevent Roosevelt from being re-elected. He was elected to the presidency four times and died in office. The amendment was ratified in 1951, six years after Rooseveltís death.

There is a follow up video called "the Brians behind AOC part 2


I didnít watch the video, but I find the idea of AOC being funded by a bunch of guys named Brian to be funny.

She knew it had something to do
with Roosevelt, so she made the
rest up. I would love to ask her
simple stuff like what year did
WWII end, who did we fight in WWI,
what year was Kennedy elected.
You know, 5th grader stuff.

Maybe a show called "Are You Smarter Than AOC?"

Get Donald on there and the answer will be a resounding "NO."

In order for something to be funny,
or even ironic, it has to have some
truth in it. This 'Republican presidents
are dumb as dirt' mantra the Left
always drags up (Bush, Reagan, even
Nixon) is just ridiculous. It's never worked
and never will.

Pretty impressed with AOC

former Rep. Bob Inglis, a Republican from South Carolina spoke on climate change
His comments led to loud groans from the audience, many of whom appeared to be fans of Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat. Some shouted "No!" One audience member shouted: "You moron!"
Ocasio-Cortez was readying to respond when she heard the audience member and stopped.
"Hey! Hey! Hey! That's unacceptable," Ocasio-Cortez said as she pointed her finger at the audience member. Then, looking back at Inglis, she added: "And that's the difference between me and Trump."

You also would have bet money that
Hillary would have won, or that
Mueller would have nailed Trump
and his family. Your track record
for being right stinks. It's based
on knee jerk emotion and never
on obvious facts.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
