A civil war is brewing within the Democratic Party. It is ripping at the seems and is about to burst. It is hard to pick a side in a fight between AOC and Pelosi.
A civil war within the Democratic Party is brewing. On one side, we have the socialist bartender who doesn’t have a meaningful degree and wants to give everything away for free. On the other, we have Nancy Pelosi, an 80 year old career politician who is so deep in the D.C. Swamp it would take years just to decontaminate her.
Finally we get to see the socialist, radical left of the Democratic party fight with the Democratic elite! Who will win? Who cares. We know who will lose… the Democratic party.
Yesterday, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared to violate her truce with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday, sparking what could become renewed infighting between the progressive wing and moderate congressional Democrats if the party retains control of the House in 2020.
Ocasio-Cortez told CNN host Jake Tapper Sunday morning that she plans to support the “most progressive” candidate for House speaker, and that she would consider other Democratic candidates to replace Pelosi’s position if the California Democrat doesn’t measure up.
“If Speaker Pelosi runs again, as she just indicated she will, if the Democrats keep the House, will you support her?” Tapper asked.
“I want to make sure that we win the House,” the freshman congresswoman responded. “I do believe that we will, but it’s critically important that we are supporting Democrats in tight swing races, making sure that not only all of them come back but that we grow our majority.”
Pelosi, 79, who has served in the House for more than 30 years, clashed with Ocasio-Cortez and allied freshmen lawmakers last year over their policy differences — which span everything from their approach to immigration to their early calls for impeachment against President Trump.
If forced to choose between AOC and Pelosi, I guess I will choose Pelosi. No, I can’t do that. I guess it’s AOC then. Nope, that doesn’t feel right either.
I am choosing mutually assured destruction and a Republican landslide on November 3rd!
