Wow. How’s the breeze under that bus, staffer? Good grief, this is such bullshit. So the “working draft” was accidentally released. But all the things that were rightfully ridiculed in it were considered seriously enough to be put in a draft AND still existed at all. 1/
Now this “working draft” gets posted to her official site that she & others from her staff & party link as an explainer, & remains there for hours. They finally yank it after it‘s thoroughly picked apart & start playing the draft card, claiming it didn’t represent the GND. 2/
Okay, so let’s say this is all true. Just some big, fat mistake publishing some random draft on an official website that was totally not what the GND aims to do & definitely not anything AOC considered to achieve the GND. K. 3/
So I won’t go into all the other issues, plenty of that to read up on from better minds than mine, so without all the other stuff there’s something it gets down to for me. Just a very basic conclusion after observing this train wreck. 4/
If AOC, her office, & staffers (sorry bout that bus, yo!) cannot handle a simple release of legislation & subsequent explainers without it turning into such an absolute cluster-you-know-what, then how on earth can they be expected to lead on this colossal policy—or anything? 5/
GOP & conservatives don’t trust her & never will, so I’m not even talking about them. But what of her Dem colleagues & your average voter? This freshman congresswoman has arrogantly called herself “the boss” & seems to think she’s the only one with answers. 6/
Yet her first attempt to introduce anything and really take any action at all was a complete mess from the jump as she couldn’t even manage her own staff’s actions & their responses with the release of her pet legislation. 7/
Even with much of the media handling her with kid gloves, it was impossible for most to gloss over the inexperience & incompetency that was apparent in the roll out of the GND. But sure, it was probs just a bad day for that 1 staffer—need a rag for the oil on your face, buddy? 8/
So here we are. Best case: AOC jumped the gun in releasing the GND without properly preparing her team & providing them with necessary info for approved, coordinated responses. Predictable ineptitude on display followed by knee jerk defensiveness when things went awry. 9/
Worst case: They are lying liars who lie. They scrambled to cover their asses as they realized their ideas to radically transform the country were not as accepted as believed nor were their fellow citizens as “enlightened” as they hoped. I tend to believe it’s a bit of both. End/
