AOC Could Be a 2024 Nightmare
Posted On 28 Dec 2022
When asked earlier this year if she would support Joe Biden if he was her Party’s nominee, controversial progressive Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer directly, instead gave a response that kicked the can down the line, not committing and basically saying she would cross that bridge when she came to it. Since then, according to some left-wing pundits, the self-described social democrat has dropped hints that she may make a run herself for the White House. To be clear, an AOC 2024 run has been little more than hints and rumors; however, there have been some subtle signs. For example, during an interview with GQ magazine published earlier this year, AOC answered the question of whether she plans on running for president a little more directly than she has in the past, but still without an outright “yes” or “no.” “I live in a country that would never let that happen,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. Rather than a sincere answer of her own designs on the Oval Office, her reply was more of a snarky rebuke of a majority of the American voting public; a claim that the American people would never elect somebody based on their race or their gender. The election of former President Barack Obama in a landslide in 2008 and our current Black/Asian VP and Jewish husband should be all the evidence that AOC needs to know her claim was hogwash; it wasn’t. “It’s very difficult for me to talk about because it provokes a lot of inner conflict in that I never want to tell a little girl what she can’t do. And I don’t want to tell young people what is not possible. I’ve never been in the business of doing that,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Yet some point out that this could just be a clever ploy on the part of AOC, and none of these comments actually rule out a run for the White House in 2024 or in the future. The New York congresswoman is known for her political theatrics, appearing to break down and cry outside of a detention center for illegal aliens and attracting attention by appearing on any magazine cover she can. Like Donald Trump, who she so berates, AOC craves the media spotlight, loves being part of a story, and takes joy in beating the odds and defeating the “prejudiced” and “racist” system she’s actually now a part of. Claiming she lives in a country that would never allow her to become president, therefore, sets her up for an even more significant victory in the future if she does decide to run for president and win. And if she loses? Then how well-orchestrated comments will allow her to play the victim and say she could never possibly have won because the system is corrupt, racist, and inherently biased against progressives.
