America lost a great person and leader. The death of former president George H. W. Bush shocked everyone, and people will remember Bush for his bipartisan leadership of the US, his military service and compassion for the citizens of this country.
The former president was a brilliant man, and was appreciated by everyone on both sides on the aisle. Well, we cannot really say that for Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Many politicians spoke and wrote about the accomplishments of Bush Sr., the newly elected congresswoman had something else to say. She sent a terrible message to everyone who was still grieving after the death of the former president.
In an effort to bring the focus on herself, the socialist did her best to convince people that she is an incredible person. Well, that’s how arrogant and narcissistic people say things like this. This is nothing but a disrespect for the former president and everything he has accomplished.
But, Ocasio-Cortez did not get the reaction she hoped for.
The Boston Globe reports:
The outsiders standing outside at Pressley’s behest — Ocasio-Cortez and Trahan, along with Andy Levin and Rashida Tlaib, both of Michigan — were elected to shake their own party awake, too. They were sent to Washington not to compromise on their values, but to fight for them, to see that they’re not relegated to a shelf.
“I am so thankful that Ayanna is taking up this fight, because God knows we need it,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
It won’t be easy. It’s hard to see how anything of consequence will change over the next two years.
“I have no illusions about how hard it is to craft a forward-facing, lifesaving policy while we are fighting this administration at every corner,” Pressley said.
But for the first time in about two years, hope has a mandate.
And she retweeted two more tweets from supporters talking about how fantastic she is.
For all the naysayers who were skeptical of AOC for her lack of experience – she now has buy-in from 20 of her colleagues for a #GreenNewDeal Select Committee even before swearing in.

Ocasio-Cortez should have found another way to get everyone’s attention. Honor Bush Sr…
