Democratic socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez compares her election to landing on the moon, the establishment of civil rights, and wiring America for electricity saying ‘we’ve done what we thought was impossible.’
“This is not just about a Green New Deal, this is about a new deal for the United States of America,” she said. “Because in every moment where our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment, when we were at the brink, at the cusp, of an abyss, and we did not know if we could be capable of saving ourselves, we have.”
“We’ve done what we thought was impossible,” she told the gathered crowd. “We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”
Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Friday compared her 2018 election victory to American accomplishments such as the moon landing and the establishment of civil rights.
During a press conference meant to publicize her support of a Green New Deal, a nebulous government spending plan promoting ideas backed by lawmakers like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), Ocasio-Cortez equated Democratic elections victories like her own with other seemingly “impossible” U.S. achievements. More
This young woman is a train wreck in politics. No, wait, she’s just a train wreck. It’s embarrassing what comes out of her mouth.
Well at least Alexandria already has a better comedy career than Kathy Griffin.

She is going to be shocked when she realizes how teeny tiny her little world is and her district compared to the rest of the US. This isn’t the last drink call at the bar where you seem brilliant because everyone else is drunk.

If this is her message before she even takes her office, I’d better work on my abs, or the upcoming belly laughs may kill me. Seriously though, this is what some people thought was the best and brightest to represent them? When even a dead guy can win, I still don’t get it.

Some people like to think themselves a hero in a movie. She wants to be the young, questionable hero who saves America. My question is… from what?

Wow, what a real trailblazer! At only 29 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stands to unseat Nancy Pelosi as the “most moronic democrat ever elected.”
