Total Loser: Most Of The Candidates Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Townhall.com ^ | August 8, 2018 | Matt Vespa

She’s not even in Congress yet, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party’s rising star and unapologetic socialist, endorsed a slate of candidates in last night’s primaries. While all eyes were on Ohio’s 12th congressional district, Missouri, Michigan, Kansas, and Washington also had primaries. Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Cori Bush running in Missouri’s first congressional district and Abdul El-Sayed and Fayrouz Saad in Michigan. El-Sayed and Saad were running for governor and Congress respectively; Saad was running in the Mitten State’s 11th congressional district. 

We’ve got about ONE WEEK LEFT until a whole slew of elections come up across the country.

From @KanielaIng & @SaadforCongress to @AbdulElSayed & @CoriBush, it’s time to leave it all on the field.

Check your state primary date & VOTE August 7th + 11th.

Well, it seems the seeds of a left wing revolution won’t be taking root. All of the candidates she backed for August 7th lost—all of them. It wasn’t just by a little. All of them lost quite handily—some of them by a lot (via American Mirror):

El-Sayed lost his bid for the Democrat nomination for governor to 50.1 percent to 34.6 percent, according to numbers published by the New York Times. [It’s now 30.6 percent for El-Sayed]

Saad came in fourth in the five-way race, capturing only 20.1 percent of the vote. [NYT now says 18 percent]

Cori Bush lost her primary to William Lacy Clay, 62.3 percent to 30.2 percent, the Times results show. [Bush ticked up to 36.9 percent, but Clay ended up with 56.7 percent].

So, it was more of a red wedding. Well, we'll see how her final pick, Kaniela Ing, who is running in Hawaii’s first congressional district, does on August 11. Still, let’s say he wins; she’s one for four. That’s still the record of a total loser. 

Ocasio-Cortez became a household name among left wingers for booting Rep. Jim Crowley in an upset primary win that mirrored the GOP’s ouster of then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014 by conservative insurgent Dave Brat. She’s anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement, pro-Medicare-for-All, housing for all, etc. all of the left wing goodies you can think of; Ocasio-Cortez is for it and with it absolute economic catastrophe. She’s proven to be clueless on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and seems to know next to nothing about the budget. She said that the military had undergone a $700 billion increase. No, not true. So, at least her left wing seeds of revolution got drowned out. The last thing we need on the Hill are more of these clowns. I say that in general. Politically, Democrats--these are your crazed spawn. We're just here to watch the show, and see winnable races get torpedoed because these comrades are totally out of step with normal Americans.

Bonus:

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "We are the party of King, of Roosevelt, of the ones who went to the moon!"

#1. Going to the moon was not a Republican vs. Democrat thing.
#2. It happened under President Nixon, a Republican. pic.twitter.com/jmbv40ZTb5— Ryan Saavedra ???? (@RealSaavedra) August 7, 2018

UPDATE: Okay. We'll include James Thompson in KS-04 and Rashida Tlaib MI-13 as part of the crew, even though Ocasio-Cortez never tweeted support for the latter until after she won. She did stump for Thompson, so we'll chalk these non-explicit endorsements as full-fledged ones. She's two-for-five. Still pretty crappy.

She is 100 percent a media creation. Flash in the pan, ignorant, inexperienced, not terribly bright. An example of how the Democrats will latch on to anything, no matter how ridiculous.

Socialism with a somewhat appealing face is still SCUM SUCKING POS SOCIALISM.

It’s the philosophy, stupid.

Her saying she has a degree in economics Is like someone saying they have a degree in Astro physics while declaring the earth is flat and at the center of the universe.
It doesn’t make that person credible, it makes them either a liar, or else their education a total farce.

She says she has a degree in economics from Boston University. Yet she doesn’t know how the unemployment rate is calculated.

She says she’s from the Bronx, implies she grew up poor but actually grew up in middle class Westchester county.

She takes exception to someone saying she went to an ivy league school, pointing out that Boston University is not ivy league. Technically true, but still is one of those elitist private universities.

She wants to create this imsge of herself as some.poor Puerto Rican minority, who grew up grappling with poverty.

She is the antithesis of what she purports to represent.

This is a Democrat who has not been coached before being placed on the national scene.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza sez=>

“Here’s an amazing stat: In the last 14 contested Republican primaries where President Donald Trump has endorsed a candidate, his pick has won — or is leading — all 14 times. That’s remarkable.”
