Title: Primary opponent for AOC
Post by: Beherenow on February 11, 2020, 05:11:18 PM
Think Caruso-Cabrera has a chance?:

Assuming she develops a campaign apparatus, I think she will appeal to people who don't embrace socialism and are wary of AOC's big-ticket proposals.

she's a Republican who was chosen because of her last name. she's a fake, a phony, a sham. the people of this district aren't stupid enough to fall for this game of three card monte.

I'm pretty confidant that a moderate of any stripe will do well with the voters here after being confronted with AOC's radical intersectionist red fever dreams.

From the amazon page for her book:

"Caruso-Cabrera maintains that by focusing on socially invasive policies, our country has lost its course. The answer is less government, not more; less spending, not more; and getting the government to stay out of our pocketbooks and out of our private lives."

Yes.  There will be many people here ready to hear something like this and willing to vote for someone who appears to have a clue.

bravo for a deliciously dense concoction of meaningless buzzwords. a veritable parfait of George Soros fantasies and Nixonian psychodrama.

As a gay man, anytime a politician says that government should stay out of our lives, they really mean that they're not passing any laws to help me, or to help any minority.  Those are Republican code words, plain and simple.

Anyone would be better than AOC, especially ANY Republican. Jeeze, please clean up this mess that Obama, Cuomo and BlaBla Blasio made. And what laws do you want to be made to help you?  I’m a minority, I don’t have or want special laws. Unless you’re an illegal immigrant and want special treatment....

all immigrants, legal or illegal, will be gone soon. close your eyes and float off to sleep to thoughts of torment, Jixxie.

and the words come from the white house, so you can't call it fake news, hon.

Did anyone watch the virtual debate last night with AOC, MCC and Khan?
Title: Re: Primary opponent for AOC

I didn't watch the debate, but I did get a ridiculous campaign flyer from MCC today.  I'm not the biggest AOC fan, but I respect her conviction and overall beliefs.  This flyer was from her "Democratic" primary opponent, quoting articles from the National Review and Washington Examiner, two highly conservative rags.  While National Review has history of being reasonable/intellectual conservatism, it is not that anymore.  The Washington Examiner is Fox News-ish, with articles from today like "Ivanka Trump's Commencement Speech was Cancelled because Social Justice is a Disease."  The articles quoted talked about how AOC was hiding in her luxury DC condo, which they went out of their way to stress, 'doesn't let poor people in'.  I'm so tired of this stupid narrative that Democrats who care about social justice can't live in luxury condos or something like that.  And by 'not letting poor people in' they were saying there aren't subsidized units like there are in many NYC developments.

I'd absolutely welcome a legitimate Democratic primary challenger to AOC, but MCC isn't that.  I'd almost certainly have voted for AOC anyway, but MCC's flyer sealed the deal for me.

i've been getting her mailers, too. they're borderline hysterical (and i don't mean in terms of humor) with the Over! The! Top! scare tactics and Exclamation! Points! the gist? AOC hates poor people and only exists to serve the moneyed classes, since she doesn't live in a tenement.

Yeah, dssjh, today's had a picture of AOC on the front looking like a crazy person, and the flip side was MCC standing alongside healthcare workers, as though somehow those are the options: a bad person who hates the poor, and a good person who cares about nurses.

Again, I like AOC overall but I'm not a die-hard supporter and would absolutely consider voting for someone else in the primary, but you're right that MCC is hysterical in a not-funny way.

I'm undecided but have to point out that MCC is running an aggressive campaign and AOC seems to be asleep at the wheel. I've not received a single thing from the AOC campaign in my mailbox, whereas MCC sends 1-2 pieces per week and runs TV spots. At this point given the uncertainty about voter turnout, I would not be totally surprised if AOC gets upset in the primary in much the same way she had upset the Joe Crowley campaign.

MCC is definitely flush with campaign cash. I've received three calls from "pollsters" who are actually consultants testing out anti-AOC messaging, and have stopped counting the number of hysterical mailers showing up in my post box. It's all so cynical. I enjoy putting those mailers through the shredder.

me too. they're usually from southern states and they mention the word socialist every 90 seconds. it's like listening to One America News without the laugh track.
