There is nothing more gratifying than when someone thinks they know everything getting shown that they didn’t know anything at all.
I had this happen to me once when I was in the military when a brand new officer that hadn’t been old enough to buy beer for enough time to read this sentence tried explaining to me the proper way to do things when I was the guy that had one it for years.
So, I do it and it, of course, fails. The commanding officer then came over to chew me out and I immediately point him to the officer that gets massive chewing out and told to realize that he doesn’t know a damn thing about anything.
There could not be two more diametrically opposed politicians than Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz and Congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
From 1999 to 2003, he held various government positions, serving as Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), as an Associate Deputy Attorney General at the United States Department of Justice, and as a Domestic Policy Advisor to George W. Bush during Bush’s 2000 presidential campaign. Cruz served as Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to 2008, having been appointed by Texas Attorney General and later Governor Greg Abbott. He was the longest-serving solicitor general in Texas history and the first Hispanic American to serve in that capacity.
Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC, as she is affectionately known is a member of ‘The Squad’, went to BU and bartended before being elected to Congress. Nothing against bartending, I slang drinks for a decade myself.
Mr. Cruz is the foremost expert on the issues that matter most to our republic: Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. AOC proposed the ‘Green New Deal’. Need I go on?
Well, now Ted Cruz is calling AOC out as Fox News explains:
‘Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ted Cruz traded barbs over whose party is responsible for a high-stakes stalemate over another coronavirus aid package after Congress left Washington for a weeklong Thanksgiving recess with no deal in place.
“People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted Monday. “I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.”
Firing back at the progressive firebrand, Cruz accused Democrats of repeatedly blocking a scaled-back stimulus proposal backed by the majority of Senate Republicans.
Ocasio-Cortez, alongside other House Democrats, previously voted to pass the $3.4 trillion HEROES Act in May, and the updated, scaled-backed $2.2 trillion legislation in October.
