She wanted to be taken seriously… just not THIS seriously.
The Green New Deal has been a clown car from the moment it was announced. Just when you think the last ridiculous thing has climbed out of it, out comes something else.
It’s the gaffe that keeps on giving.
First, the Green New Deal itself is insane. It gave us less than twelve years to do away with fossil fuels, planes and cows. (Although those last two ‘might’ take longer to get rid of.)
Everyone mocked the FAQs in her official launch. She claimed ‘sabotage’, until it became obvious that, nope, those were the real ideas. They were really HORRIBLE ideas, to be sure, but they were authentically hers.
That didn’t stop every Democratic 2020 candidate from tripping over themselves to endorse it.
And AOC, feeling cocky, made her ‘I’m the boss now, howbowdat’ statement.
Since so many of the Democrats were taking this super-seriously, the Republican Senate treated it like a serious resolution, promising to put it to a vote.
The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others “on the record”, for leg they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace.
Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for. https://t.co/ELzpQhlezo

Oh, she’s worried about ‘wasting time’ now? Jobs aren’t for campaigning?
Did she happen to notice the BS games her party was playing during, say, the Kavanaugh hearings? Or how they slow-walked EVERY one of Trump’s appointments — including Ambassadors — to prevent his administration from governing? In fact, the entire first 2 years of the Democrats’ role in the Trump presidency is best defined by the words ‘wasting time’.
Nobody made her submit her half-baked Green New Deal. That was a vanity move on her part.
Now her GND is in play. Too bad, so sad.
Even UNIONS stand opposed to the Democrat’s proposal.
Maybe her half-baked plan wasn’t ready for the light of day.
Now it gets to die the death it so richly deserves… or bring her party down with it.
