    True story. Obama recently refused to endorse "the new face of the Democratic Party," Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. At the same time, he endorsed 81 other Democrats. Why?

    [​IMG]
    "...WTF Obama. I thought you was down?"

    [​IMG]
    "I'm With Him."

    [​IMG]
    "Democratic-Socialism? Girl you be trippin! LOL."

    That's seriously messed up tho. Like, why would you do that to a rising star in your own party? You're supposed to be on the same side! Obama done forgot that it was the DNC establishment (John Kerry as POTUS nominee) who put him on back in 2004 – back when he was just some "community organizer" with a funny name. Shouldn't Obama "pay it forward?"

    Anyway, discuss.

    No, this is actually my old persona. ;) Real talk tho, I thought Dems were gung ho for Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Socialism. Is Obama turning Alt-Right or something? Or does he know something we don't? Crowley's name is still on the ballot FYI.

    I imagine it's because he has always been a democrat, and despite the vilification of him by the right, he was never a "burn it all down" radical type but someone who tried to work with both sides and make compromises to get actual policy advances that he could achieve, and disagrees with the Democratic Socialist wing's approach.

    I don't know though. Also not sure why it is such a big deal?

    is this your new persona? As an eternally outraged democrat?

    He probably didnt endorse her because ideologically they are not similar in anyway

    he's a corporatist, he's a centrist if anything, just like Crowley!

    AOC is not a corporate shill

    Well, he's not really a part of her ideological section of the party. He would have certainly preferred Crowley.

    Anyways, ex-presidents aren't really expected to publicly endorse all Congressional candidates. He'd likely prefer her to the Republican alternative.

    Would he though? I imagine he'd probably prefer AOC over Trump, but he may well prefer Jeb? or Lil' Marco over any Democratic Socialist.

    They have different approaches and different strains of democratic politics. How is this some kind of gotchya?

    The Dem leadership is endorsing the more moderate candidates while the Republican Party is led by the far right. I expected more of this democratic socialism than has actually occurred.

    Nah man, you're remembering wrong. Obama was a corporate shill, and a sellout to the NeoCLib establishment. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is wave of the future!

    Can't we all agree that this is part of the problem? Indeed, in many respects this IS the problem!

    I very, very much doubt that, particularly in the case of Rubio, who is (a) a bona fide moron, and (b) has no actual policy beliefs other than what is fed to him by his party toward their agenda of looting the economy and giving all wealth and power to the ultra-rich and to non-human for-profit legal entities.

    Like with Hillary, I would imagine that Obama's actual moral fiber and the end goals of his policies are very consistent with those of AOC. He just prefers a different method of delivery. I would sincerely doubt that he would prefer someone who prefers the same methods of delivery to achieve completely diametrical outcomes.
