Here is my post again

No. It demonstrates what an idiot she is and how insanely out of touch w/ reality many people are.

She applied for a job in another state. Did she not think that there were relocation costs?

Jesus.

So, no. No place did i say it should "be one of the 1st things you should think about"

Buy if you think that someone who overlooks that very basic detail of LIFE is someone you would like representing you and making much more complex decision that says as much about you as it does her.
Well, this is where the faux populism of libertarian ideology reveals itself as just another one of the tools in the toolbelt of rule by the rich!

I've heard Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in interviews long, long before she was given a hearing from mainstream media or the Democratic Party let's not forget!
The Dem establishment has and still treats all the DSA, Our Revolution and Justice Democrats (like AOC) like a foreign invasion and...from Nancy's own speech on Election Night last week, they would rather work with Republicans than any force at the grassroots trying to bring new blood into their Party....because that force will pull them further and further to the left, and that means further and further away from THE MONEY! Which is the only reason a near 80-year old like Pelosi is still in charge even though she sounds like she's lost in a hospital corridor or something when she's up on stage giving a speech! She brings in the campaign dollars to dole out to preferred candidates...so we're told!

But, what's really telling here is that you and assorted right collective of Republican hacks and allies in media and social media have been working hard from the other side of the aisle trying to knock down AOC with stupid edited soundbites and quoteboxes as if they're working for the DNC also! This seems both for ideological reasons and identity politics. I have to agree with Goober's point that revulsion over the thought of a young woman of color...especially a color associated with invasion by those who will dilute the white race, no doubt is a factor in all this.

No need to edit her. She does an excellent job of demonstrating her intelligence on her own.

She is a big government socialist. My opposition to her has nothing to do w/ the DNC or any other warmongers but the fact that i believe what she stands for to be systematically evil.

Pure NPC projection.

When was the last time you formulated an argument or had an original thought?
Do you count repeating what FOX tells you to think as "an original thought"?

You do realize that the right has conducted a campaign against Ocasio-Cortez ever since she emerged from the primary.
Because she's emerging as a powerful figure on the political landscape.

Mostly taking one line from an interview and trying to twist it into something that it's not.
So she does an interview with the New York Times, did you read the interview in the New York Times?
Fox peels out one line, distorts it into an attack, and you run with that, why?
If it made you curious, you could have read the interview, but NO, you just call her an idiot, because FOX told you what to think.

Did you ever think what it takes to organize a political campaign from scratch, do you think an idiot can do that?

No specifics, just generalities, you really don't have a clue what she stands for, you believe what you have been told to believe.

Don't watch fox. Don't have cable/satellite. Im not 100 years old. I don't have a fax machine or get the news paper either.

Yes, i do believe that an idiots can run and win and often do. Actually more often than not. Don't you guys constantly call trump an idiot? Now, that one i don't think is stupid but he is not your stereotypical politician. But i would guess at least 1/2 are of average or below average intelligence.

The best thing that could happen for the country is to make her Speaker of the House.

I didn't say you watch FOX, you linked to FOX in the OP, that's how I know you got the story from FOX.
I read the FOX piece, I read the New York Times piece, that's how I know FOX distorted the story, to appeal to idiots.
It appealed to you...you launched a thread.

Of course you'll choose FOX, they have the "news" you want to believe...


Are you saying you got the story somewhere else?

Cortez:

If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House.​
