People who have made CEO obviously have a ton of skills. Yet, I have to agree that they should have some political experience first.

Too many times we see billionaires making themselves richer or gain more power..

She is very "the poor have honesty, and the rich are all greedy scumbags" mentality.

I see why so many support her, but there is definitely a degree of naivety. Something needs to be done about the greedy rich old politicians in power....

At least she is trying.. ya know..

So, the OP's quote is incorrect, and misrepresents the question that she actually asked. Typical.


"Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to “work their way up”"
stated with a reference to a DailyBeast article on Schultz' candidacy... I'm not sure why there's a bug up your ass, but it apparently is there.


I'm guessing Sookie didn't like the paraphrased title because it omits the "who want to run for President" part and makes AOC's question seem dumber than it actually is. Though it's still a dumb question.

Agreed. My views on Trump are fairly close to yours. I don't like him, at all.

That having been said... I'm not required to like him to want him to do a good job. ...and so far, he's better than I dared hoped for...certainly better then the Sniper Dodger would have been.

It seems it was a retort to someone having a dig at her, so Im guessing it was a tongue in cheek reply and not a statement she just came out with .

I think this is a direct quote from her twitter feed.

twitter.com...



“Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to ‘work their way up’ or that ‘maybe they should start with city council first’?


So yeah she said it.

Open foot insert mouth.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

I don't agree with Schultz's left leaning views at all. I do not buy
from Starbucks. But I will give credit where credit is due this
man is not lazy and he has worked hard to be where he is.
( yes he has also stepped on a lot of people on his way up, I dont
appreciate that either!)

I do not like Starbucks political views either, and I don't
even like the guy, but I can't find a way to say he hasn't
worked to earn his billions.

OAC on the other hand? I don't trust a person with any
financial decisions when they are eating mac n cheese
wearing 5,000 suits telling every one else to hand over
their hard earned money for her bat sheet ideas.

The answer to her question is this, Because they have lots of money.

You and I and any regular american CAN'T just jump into a race and hope to win.

Do you think it is right that ONLY the rich can become president?

As you can see in this thread some people think business men that screw over the little people to get ahead are worthy leaders.

I care about one thing, the budget, if you have never planned and kept a budget you have no right to have access public funds. Career politicians have Never had to keep a budget because the can just raise taxes if they need more money.
This is why a CEO is better than life long politician

She really isn't the sharpest tool in the shed, is she?

Awww.



Okay... true confessions here. I think she's kinda cute in a "dorky exuberance" kinda way. I am right leaning, and her ideas are just bonkers... for openers, AND...

NO... she is NOT the brightest bulb in the pack, and she's just dangerous enough to believe that "Venezuela (...and Cuba, and China and The Soviet Union) just didn't do it right... but I will."

Keep in mind, that is the exact same thing Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot said as well. It's virulent narcissism for sure, and ended with over 100 Million dead stacked like cordwood all over the planet.

She is the poster girl for being a product of the modern public education system. Oh boy.

Or just a little bit of sense

When you propose something astronomically stupid (such as expanding government or volunteering trillions of our dollars) you tend to lose credibility. When you throw your hands up and say "Aw shucks, I don't know Vern" when asked something as simple as "How will you pay for this without raising taxes on already overburdened Americans OR costing them their jobs due to forcing companies out by grossly overtaxing the top earners more than they're already burdened?" it doesn't look good

A.O.C. is about as Green as it gets, and the fact people like that are anywhere near government functions/law making is very disturbing. Really shows why a system like this only works when it isn't subverted from within.

Socialist garbage has done enough for the World, don't you think? We don't need its help here in America. We have enough problems of our own without adding all that tree hugging nonsense in the picture

Not surprising when you consider he's been a democrat his entire life prior to a few years ago...a fairly moderate one, at that , from what I can recall.
