If you didn’t see Outnumbered this morning, you missed Marie Harf throwing one Democrat under the bus after another. During Harf’s attempt to minimize Ocasio-Cortez’s frequent mistakes, she threw Rep.-Elect Cortez, DNC Chair Cortez and the media wing of the Democratic Party under the bus in a 4-minute video.

That being said, Kennedy’s statements stole the show for that segment. She started by saying that “It’s the downfall of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, because it’s built on a foundation of yogurt. It’s incredibly problematic because she doesn’t have a working knowledge of basic economics. Socialism is an economic system. You have to have an economic argument in order to a) sell it and b) make it work. She can’t do either because she doesn’t understand how the world works, how people make money, how money is created and the creation of money is actually a positive sum effort when more people thrive when more people make money.”

Republicans should understand that just highlighting the fact that Democrats are becoming more socialist by the month won’t help them win back suburban voters. They need to highlight how socialist policies have failed in the past, then highlight how true capitalism, not crony capitalism, has succeeded. Highlight the fact that legitimate capitalism incentivizes everyone to make profits while crony capitalism picks winners and losers based on connections, not innovation and the ability to recognize markets.

Here’s the video of the segment:

Make sure to watch the entire thing. It’s priceless, especially Ari Fleischer’s comments at the end on why Ocasio-Cortez is getting so much coverage.

    This woman is vacuous. She got elected because she was selling what everyone around her wanted, a free lunch, but doesn’t know there’s is no such thing as a free lunch. Sadly there are going to be more and more like her elected (just look at the 4 idiots elected to the house in MN).

    “DNC Chair Cortez” seems to intend to say Perez, but that is only a detail. Chad Q. are you saying Ocasio-Cortez is the Devin Nunes of her party? Thick headed, but gaining attention one way or another? Single Payer works in all civilized nations where it is policy, from Canada to Norway. Cradle to grave healthcare as a right will happen, even under Fascisism in this nation. The problem was implementing the Heritage Foundation Romneycare business as a sop to the insurance privateers. That now is an impediment to getting it right.

    No, I’m saying the democratic socialist is dumber than a bag of hair and her constituents are too. Nunes is a genius compared to this woman and day in and day out she keeps proving that a college education does not mean you are educated.
    Single payer does not work from Canada to Norway (even those countries are trying to change the system) if you read the real information and not just the info spoon fed to you through the MSM. Health care is not a right and never has been. You will rue the day if health care every becomes a “right” as you will no longer have the right to do as you wish as the government will tell you what you can eat, drink, etc. As the lying Obama insinuated when he was ramming Obamacare down our throats, maybe you will just get a pill to get you by until you die because your life won’t be worth it to give you a new hip, knee, heart valve, etc. The death panels your kind mocked Palin for will be come a reality.

    Chad – A bleak perspective. Canadians seem happy. Have you links you could give on Canada and Norway seeking change? Or for either, if not for both? And “rights” do not equate to government control, or do you have some Second Amendment notion in mind? Do we still have militias?
    Ocasio-Cortez seems at peace with Pelosi, which might suggest a sell-out to the Republican-lite forces. That’s my greatest doubt. After Michele Bachmann, no Congress critter can be called dumb by anyone who embraced the Bachmann tenure. Or have you a different perspective that way?

    Do we still have militias?

    Yes, but that isn’t the point. The Founding Fathers put the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights to tell people that they have the right to defend themselves.
