“I don’t think there’s anything more divisive we can do than to impeach a President of the United States, and so you have to handle it with great care. It has to be about the truth and the facts to take you to whatever decision has to be there.” Speaker Nanmcy Pelosi, 6/15/19
FoxNews.com reports that
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., warned Sunday there is “very real risk” President Trump will win re-election in 2020, sparking a rare response of its kind from the president: “I agree.”
Her comments struck an unusually defensive tone for the 29-year-old progressive firebrand, as Democrats seek to winnow their list of 23 presidential contenders. Ocasio-Cortez also acknowledged that progressive frustration with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was “quite real” and spoke bluntly on her initiative to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars most federal funding for abortion — and 2020 Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden’s abrupt reversal on the issue earlier this month.
“I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States,” Ocasio-Cortez told ABC News’ Jon Karl on “This Week” in her first Sunday morning show appearance since she took office in January.
“I think that if we elect a president on half-measures that the American people don’t quite understand — the agenda of a president, you know, that says we’re fighting for higher wages but we don’t want a $15 minimum wage, fighting for education but we don’t want to make colleges tuition-free, fighting for women’s rights, et cetera, but we don’t want to go all the way with that, then I think we have a very real risk of losing the presidency,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
The president quoted the congresswoman in a tweet Sunday night, adding: “I agree, and that is the only reason they play the impeach card, which cannot be legally used!” He did not elaborate.
Ocasio-Cortez said she did not see herself endorsing a particular candidate “any time soon,” however.
Responding to an NBC News poll showing growing support for an impeachment inquiry, Ocasio-Cortez called an impeachment investigation a “constitutional responsibility.” That prompted Karl to press Ocasio-Cortez on reports that progressive Democrats are frustrated with Pelosi, D-Calif., who has resisted calls for impeachment proceedings.
“I think it’s quite real,” Ocasio-Cortez. “I believe that there is a very real animus and desire to make sure that we are — that — that we are holding this president to account.”
Not exactly, AOC.
According to a new Fox News Poll, while the number of those wanting impeachment has increased, it has done so among Democrats and those who identify themselves as “Independent”.
Usually, an “Independent” voter is a Liberal who is either too embarrassed to admit it or they are a Liberal who identifies themselves as “Independent” in order to skew the polls.
The Democrats, in their undeserved arrogance, actually believe that those of us living between the coasts are actually rooting for them to impeach the president.
That’s right. One minute they are calling us “Deplorables” for supporting Trump and the next minute they believe that we are supporting his impeachment.
You have to remember, gentle readers, these are the same idiots who believed that the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, was going to be elected president.
Their problem is the fact that they believe their own polls.
These polls are usually oversampled with Democratic Voters.
Fox News actually uses two polling firms, one which polls Democrats and one which polls for Republicans.
What throws their polls off are the opinions of the “Independents” whom I mentioned earlier.
I believe that the polls taken in the upcoming months are going to be an inaccurate as the polls taken in 2015, simply because the poll companies are using the same sampling methods which made them look stupid back then.
About AOC’s frustration with San Fran Nan…
Regardless of what Speaker Pelosi has said, AOC’s fellow travelers may actually be bigger in number than her recent estimate of a group of 5.
Make no mistake, the Marxist “Social Justice Warrior” wing of the Democratic Party is not willing to let go their pipe dream of impeaching and removing from office President Trump, even if there is no Constitutional cause to do so.
If they do attempt to impeach President Trump, they will fail.
And, their Electoral Exile from the Oval Office will be just beginning.
If the Democratic Leadership allows the Marxist Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) like Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar to take control of the House of Representatives and their political party while embracing Radical Islam, anti-Semitism, and Marxism, while insisting on impeaching President Donald J. Trump, Pelosi and the rest of the “useful idiots” known as the House Democratic Leadership are dooming their political party to go the way of the Whigs.
By the way, isn’t it funny how Far Left Politicians like Ocasio-Cortez only cite the Constitution when they believe it benefits THEM?
“Constitutional Responsibility”, my hindquarters.
Until He Comes,
