Huff Po Article: Democrats Are Afraid Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Too. And That's A Good Thing.

I'm really encouraged by all of the recent dialogue examining what being a Democrat is really all about and how we can strengthen the party. Just like in nature, we must prune dead and diseased branches to ensure the health and longevity of the tree.

1. In high powered politics...

 

Anyone giving the appearance that they arenít looking to be a part of a coalition will always cause pause among members of the same party.

3. Once again, AOC is fine. It's the assholes who try to use her to divide Democrats who

are the problem.

Discussions of "pruning" Democrats are idiotic.

4. The best defense can't win if it can't score.

Thatís really what this is about. Scoring what matters to constituents. I agree. It is good to see the dialogue.

5. Can you list those who are dead and diseased branches. Is it by age? Pelosi and Bernie are old.

 

You want to reduce the amount of political experience and congressional knowledge and replace with those who haven't had their first year under their belt I guess. Some one who doesn't have a legislative record to look at I suppose you want.

Me, I have started back to work at 72 because I was bored and wanted more money. Hope I don't turn into a dead or diseased branch.

7. Thank you for asking wasupaloopa. It is definitely not by age.

I want all fakes, in the Joe Lieberman mould, who put the needs of corporations and donors over the needs of working people pruned from the ranks. I hope that clarifies.
