AOC: Pelosi Saddling Me with Work to Keep Me out of Spotlight
‘Sometimes I wonder if they’re trying to keep me busy’

The civil war between the Democratic Party’s left flank and extreme left flank is heating up.

Days after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and trio of her freshmen colleagues — Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) — for focusing on Twitter and PR at the expense of legislation, AOC issued another broadside against Pelosi.

"All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world," Pelosi told the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd published Saturday. "But they didn't have any following. They're four people and that's how many votes they got."

Today in an interview with WNYC’s “New Yorker Hour,” AOC accused Pelosi of intentionally saddling her with work to keep her out of the spotlight.

“I was assigned to some of the busiest committees and four subcommittees,” AOC said. “So my hands are full. And sometimes I wonder if they’re trying to keep me busy.”

The New York lawmaker had been describing why she declined Pelosi’s offer to sit on a standing committee on climate change. AOC said she declined the Speaker’s offer after she had refused AOC’s demands for what the committee should do.

Asked about how the relationship with Pelosi is generally, AOC deadpanned: “I think sometimes people think that we have a relationship.”

Wasn't she given plum committee assignments as a freshman that other members have to wait many years for? :huh:

She wouldn't be happy no matter the situation. Progressives only see problems and the negative.

If she was given only a few or no committee spots, she'd complain about not having enough to do, here she is complaining of having too much to do.

Suck it up, sista, you wanted the job - now do the freakin work. You are bringing the back-biting on yourself.

NO PITY

Hey, Evita, Nancy is YOUR boss, not the other way around. She tells YOU what to do -- you don't tell HER!

Nope. She's the face of the Millennial Generation if there ever was one.

I understand that this is how it works in reality. All of our politics now are about power and the parties. The parties have their platforms and their hierarchical structures and members are expected to work within the party.

That being said, NO, Nancy is not her boss. Her boss(es) are her constituents. No matter the incredibly low turn out, she was voted into office by real people living in a real Congressional district. It was no secret before the election how stupid and vapid she is and it was no secret how far left she is. She put both on full display AND she was still elected. Taking that into account, she should be doing exactly what she is doing, which is what she said she would do, and that is to make an incredible flaming pain in the ass of herself and champion socialist/Marxist policy.

Seems like she, much like DJT, is doing what she said would do...much to both chagrin, again much like DJT, of her party.

I agree, and I want her to keep doing exactly what she’s doing.
