She has top notch speech writers.

 

Maybe Biden could borrow a couple of them.

 

Even if she didn't write it - and I believe she did - you can't write in the emotion and conviction that she displayed during this speech.

So she's a good actor... maybe she should have went to Hollywood instead.

Are you serious?

 

Are you saying that a US Congresswoman has more power than a US Senator?

 

I don't make blanket statements that are patently false. Pelosi, Schumer, and AOC have far more power in Washington than some no name podunk senator.

Who is Manchin compared to this 'young lady'?  She commands much more power than he can even dream of. At this point, AOC has not only earned, but demanded, the respect of her peers and the voting public.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday fired back at Sen. Joe Manchin after the centrist senator referred to her as "young lady" while responding to criticism from the congresswoman.

"In Washington, I usually know my questions of power are getting somewhere when the powerful stop referring to me as 'Congresswoman' and start referring to me as 'young lady' instead," she said. "Imagine if every time someone referred to someone as 'young lady' they were ask responded to by being addressed with their age and gender?" she continued. "They'd be pretty upset if one responded with 'the old man,' right? Why this kind of weird, patronizing behavior is so accepted is beyond me!"

 

Ocasio-Cortez's comments come after Manchin made remarks about the congresswoman during an appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" when he discussed recent accusations from the House lawmaker that the senator huddles "weekly" with personnel from Exxon Mobil.

Manchin denied those allegations during the CNN appearance, saying they are "totally false" and that such comments "continue to divide, divide, divide."

"I don't know that young lady that well. I really don't. I have met her one time, I think, between sets here. But that's it. So we have not had any conversations. She's just speculating and saying things because she wants to," Manchin added.

"You're entitled to your own opinions, just not entitled to create your own facts to support it. And that's exactly what she's doing," the senator said.

 

 

Joe Manchin stating young lady but really thinking stupid bitch...

Are you crazy?  Manchin controls the demonrat agenda in the Senate...the PRB can't control shit in the House.  However...Manchin is only partly correct in her assessment of her...she is young.

AOC is hobnobbing with the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka to name a few. I hope she has a good time.

No disagreement there. She is a politician of her time. And she is leveraging that popularity. That is what politics is all about.

That's why politicians and their politics cause so much damage. Idiots can be popular but they shouldn't be elected to govern.

Saying a congresswoman has more power than a US Senator is just dumb

Can you give us a list of legislation that has been credited to her?

This is one of the dumbest comments I've seen you make here

 

ANY Senator wields much more power than representatives, and especially Manchin right now since he's a moderate dem in an evenly split but dem-controlled Senate

 

Wow. Just dumb, man. Sorry

She's in for the long game. He will be a blip on her radar in a few years, nothing more.
