The 12th amendment makes it so you can't be VP unless you meet the requirements to be president. ("But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.")Only the pres needs to be 35 I thought?
I think AOC rarely puts her foot in her mouth regardless of how passionate. She puts her foot in her mouth less than most "calculating" types.Wish Porter was the new face of the party over AOC and the squad. Yes passionate each of the squad. But they let emotions get in front of their mouth. Porter is far far more articulate and not a hot head.
now he just needs to resign from congress altogether...CNN: Rep. Ted Yoho resigns from board of Christian organization following AOC incident.
Florida GOP Rep. Ted Yoho has resigned from the board of a Christian organization that works to fight hunger following his tense exchange with Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.www.cnn.com
Forcefully resigned from hunger fighting org
After her interaction with Yolo she's the hothead???Wish Porter was the new face of the party over AOC and the squad. Yes passionate each of the squad. But they let emotions get in front of their mouth. Porter is far far more articulate and not a hot head.
Like I said. But apparently him and the other guy ran into Bill Cosby or the Men in Black.This is the difference between a Sincere Apology and an Apology just to do it.
If Yoho issued a sincere apology without the typical political wiggle room he would be in much better shape today and I believe AOC would accept and thank him for the apology.
For some reason the majority of Republicans have trouble stating clear and sincere apologies. I’m guessing that has to do with the people who vote for them, see Obama’s “Apology Tour” or see a potential future “Biden Apology Tour”.
Super simple example:
Yoho: “I am sorry for my behavior it was far out of bounds and disrespectful to you (AOC). You and I are colleagues I should have behaved better around you. I do not anticipate doing that again.
or give a reason:
I was particularly upset about x, y and z and I wrongly took my frustration out on you (AOC)
The bullshit he came up with by essentially saying he doesn’t remember using those words and *if* he did they weren’t directed at her is a sniveling way of avoiding the purpose of the apology.
He has so damn many psychological 'issues'. He's kind of fascinating in that respect. What kind of society seeks out the most psychologically-dysfunctional and damaged person they can find and puts him in charge?AOC scares Trump, that's why he attacks her so viciously. He hates all competent women, probably a deep seated issue in his psychic because he is incompetent, and deep down he knows that.
That's what "home of the brave" means now. Let's put someone with obvious psyche problems in mental decline in the seat to lead the nation. Let's blame others, and I'll bring the popcorn.He has so damn many psychological 'issues'. He's kind of fascinating in that respect. What kind of society seeks out the most psychologically-dysfunctional and damaged person they can find and puts him in charge?
Yes, as well as last month. And they will have a repeat performance in 2022.Are you sure about that?
Yet when Democrats run on liberal economic policies, they win. When they fail to deliver on those liberal economic policies, they get thrown out on their asses.Yes, as well as last month. And they will have a repeat performance in 2022.
That doesn't mean I disagree with AOCs statement about right wing media weaponizing certain words/topics. But to act like the progressive wing of the Democratic faction are saviors or even widely liked is a fallacy.
