Anytime that the matchup is Rep. Dan Crenshaw vs. AOC, it’s bound to be a mismatch. Crenshaw is a rising star in the GOP. Part of that status is earned by his willingness to subject Democrats to harsh truths about the Democrats’ policies. Rep. Crenshaw unloaded on AOC and other Democrats because he’s tired of Democrats offering nothing except complaints.

AOC has now proposed a commission to study the border crisis. What genius! The house is burning to the ground. The neighbors are worried that their home is the next to go and AOC thinks that a commission that will take 3 months minimum to staff will fix anything? It isn’t as stupid as some of her other proposals but it isn’t that bright, either. A commission is the right option if you’ve got the time. It’s the worst option in a crisis.

One of the things that Republicans should run on is the do-nothing Democrat House majority. If Pelosi rattles off some partisan bills that got passed in the House but went nowhere beyond that, the people should be reminded that it only matters if the President signs the bills into laws and they actually fix things. If they don’t meet that criteria, then Democrats will have failed.

“Notice that they never come up with a solution,” Crenshaw told “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. “They talk about the over-crowded facilities. They never have a solution. They don’t have a solution for our immigration system. They say it shouldn’t be defined by the administration — well, we do have laws right now…that says you can’t illegally cross the border. That’s immigration policy set by Congress. It’s a law in place. We need to enforce it.”

Democrats like passing laws, then not enforcing those laws. Don’t pay attention to the Democrats’ words. Pay attention to their actions. Pay attention to their shifting priorities, too. What is a priority one week isn’t a priority the next, often for no good reason. Rep. Crenshaw wasn’t finished unloading both barrels. Here’s more:

“I’m worried that the Democrats like this crisis too much,” Crenshaw added. “I’m worried as I’ve seen them fight against every single, even the smallest measures to help fix our immigration problem, they fight against. They don’t want walls. They don’t want a fix to the asylum loopholes. They’re talking about decriminalizing illegal border crossings.”

Where are the Democrats’ solutions? Do the Democrats think in those terms? Thus far, I’ve seen Democrats only proposing fixing symptoms. I haven’t seen them fix the underlying problem on anything.

Rep. Crenshaw vs. AOC is a mismatch. It isn’t pretty. Then again, AOC is a dipstick.
