Well, she cannot very well say, "I mean you people have to live small, not me!"




George Clooney has it correct. He supports no environmental causes since his lifestyle involves fast cars and private jets. He knows that he would be called a hypocrite like every other environmental cause proponent. Instead he just concentrates on political causes.

AOC - the gift that keeps on giving


You righties were saying the same thing before the midterms, and then the Dems went on to take the House by historical margins. So I'm not so sure you understand which side she is a gift to...

It is REALLY simple ams. She is so wacky, so outside of the mainstream, with so many easy to point out anti_American ideals, that even most 'normal' Democrats (Pelosi, Shumer) have concerns with her. Her own personal blatant hypocrisy makes her a very easy target as well. The Dems lost seats in the Senate, and won the average amount of House seats that happens to a mid term incumbent president. (PacoMartin?) If you want to fool yourself into thinking that the Dems hit it out of the park on the midterms, feel free. The rest of us see it for what it really was. A normal reaction to any incumbent.

Even that wouldn't have happened if
a large number of incumbent Repubs
hadn't had a knee jerk reaction to
Trump being elected. They were so
terrified he would ruin the party they
announced in 2017 they weren't
running again. Many later regretted
that when Trump turned the economy
around and his numbers stayed good.
They thought he would be in the 20's
at election time.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Cool
We hit out of the park
Trump predicting a red wave and republican gerrymandering
No doubt a home run.
With Gerrymandering, it was very dicey
With the overwhelming wins despite gerrymandering, Grand Slam baby

They deserve to be gone. Crazy part about the GOP is if the leader is not from the same country club as the establishment they think it is all over. They have an awful record for bailing out of a perfectly good airplane.

lol

A conservative group alleges Ocasio-Cortez and her allies ran a PAC scam. But there's no evidence of wrongdoing.
While the structure of her campaign and its vendors might be confusing, it's not illegal, campaign finance experts said.

The GOP keeps claiming she's such "a gift" to them, and yet they keep scrambling to try to find ways to get rid of her.
