    Deferred, what after a lot of pressure. You can't deny they've been running their mouths a lot.

    Have you always worried about one Congressional rep? I know of one who was convinced that Guam was going to tip over. He didn't get as much attention as the right gives her.

    If I were still a Republican I'd be a hell of a lot more worried about what has happened to the Republican Party than a single Congressional rep.
    Why do people think we are worried about AOC? We very much enjoy having her and that girl that looks like "ET" and the other foul mouthed one who cusses in front of her children.

    Her very comment blows your claim to bits. 100%.

    AOC is a dimwitted young woman from a place you will never go and yet she occupies more space rent free in your heads than any politician in history - including Hillary Clinton, who at least has been able to leave that rent free real estate you gave her.

    You aren't a Democrat. You don't support Pelosi. You are peeing yourself over a single Congressional rep who isn't even in your party. It looks like AOC won if her intent was to control the thought processes of the right.

    Forget about her. She doesn't impact your life.

    Thank goodness the Democrats didn't obsess 24/7 about any Republican congressional freshmen.

    I've been talking about Pelosi's headache. Here's an article about it. But Dems brought this on themselves. They keep veering left, until they get socialists elected.
    This whole "Ocasio-Cortez is going to kill the Democratic Party" is, frankly, nonsense, and it is no surprise that the OP is based upon Republican Talking Point TV. Nancy Pelosi is the Speaker of the House, third in line to the Presidency. AOC is more popular than Trump. IF ultra-conservatives were to live in the real world, rather than the fantasy echo chamber they occupy, they would realize which way the wind is blowing, but that would cause them to wizz in their shorts, so they'd rather ignore reality and pretend things are going their way.

    Here's reality, folks: The Democrats are catching up to the country. Socialism? They say, "It's about time!" (Not advocating, recognizing) Poll: Majorities of both parties support Green New Deal (The Hill). Let that sink in for a moment. Medicare for all? The vast majority of Americans, 70 percent, now support Medicare-for-all, otherwise known as single-payer health care, according to a new Reuters survey. That includes 85 percent of Democrats and 52 percent of Republicans. CNBC Similarly, according to the Reuters poll, 79 percent of Democrats and 41 percent of Republicans say they support tuition-free college, amounting to 60 percent overall. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 70% tax on the super-rich is more popular than Trump's tax cuts, new poll shows (Business Insider). 93 percent of Americans support background checks for all gun buyers according to a Quinnipiac poll.
    the domestic issues of reducing health care costs (69% top priority) and improving the educational system (68%) now rank among the top tier of public priorities. About two-thirds also say that taking steps to make the Social Security (67%) and Medicare (67%) systems financially sound are top priorities for the country.
    Public’s 2019 Priorities: Economy, Health Care, Education and Security All Near Top of List (Pew Center)

    Yes, the Republican Party controls the White House and Senate - for now - but that is not going to be true in ... let's see... 700 days? Seriously, is anyone paying attention? According to FiveThirtyEight’s presidential approval tracker, 41.9 percent of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 53.3 percent disapprove (a net approval rating of -11.4 points). Democrats Care More About Winning Than Usual. AND, and this is not insignificant, GOP base is shrinking (The Hill)

    Why? I will just generalize you like you did to everyone on the right. See how those generalizations of entire groups work?

    Show one post of mine that supports YOUR claims.

    Anyone who doesn't understand the difference between sex and gender shouldn't be pretentious about scientific terms.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.
