They Think She’s the Next Obama; Primed for 2024

Some Democrats who have apparently moved on from President Joe Biden are now floating another choice whom they believe could defeat former President Donald Trump, who is heavily favored to make another run in 2024.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who beat 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in 2018 to win her seat, has been suggested as someone who has the “best shot” against Trump amid what many political observers see as an incredibly weak Democratic bench heading into the next presidential cycle, which is just over a year away.

Michael Starr Hopkins, a comms expert who served on the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, laid out the case for ‘AOC’ to run for president.

Writing in The Hill on Tuesday, Hopkins said: “When Barack Obama came out of nowhere to win his Senate seat in 2004, it almost felt preordained. As if he was the person we had been waiting for to breathe fresh air into the Democratic Party.”

He then likened AOC’s rise to that of Obama: “Flash forward to 2018, and the meteoric rise of a 29-year-old bartender from Queens feels eerily similar. She has been unafraid, unapologetic and unwilling to bend to the will of Washington. She is a force to be reckoned with, and in 2024 Democrats are going to need her force to reckon with Republicans.”

He noted further:

[She] is less of a personality and more of a movement. Yes, the smart, photogenic congresswoman is the face of the rising progressive movement, but she is also the future of the Democratic Party. AOC has cultivated a following beyond politics. She’s an influencer in its purest form. Her ability to relate to her supporters and allow them a glimpse into her private life is a blueprint for Democrats trying to act less like mannequins and more like humans. 

She’s the voice of a movement that began after the banks were bailed out by the government, while homeowners were left to default. The simplicity with which she talks about everyday struggles hints that she’s not just a persona for consumption. She isn’t beholden to corporations, is a prodigious small-dollar fundraiser, and could out-Trump Trump like no other politician has been able to.

Hopkins then noted that a lot of the most progressive ideas of today were first pushed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont “independent” who caucuses with Democrats and sometimes has issues with its progressives. But he went on to suggest that Sanders’ time is done and that he should ‘pass the torch’ to the Bronx Democrat.

“Ocasio-Cortez represents the possibilities and opportunities that make our country great. Where else could a 29-year-old bartender upset a political heavyweight and become a symbol for her generation?  AOC was never supposed to win her race. Few gave her a chance, but a funny thing happened: Voters loved her honesty, youth and humble beginnings. Voters were sick of career politicians who rarely came back to their districts. So they voted Joe Crowley out and AOC in. That wasn’t luck, that was fate,” Hopkins wrote.

Coincidentally, another New York progressive ripped Ocasio-Cortez for rarely appearing in her district just last month.

Continuing, Hopkins wrote, “There is no denying that AOC would boost GOP turnout as a result of coverage on right wing networks built to scare elderly white voters. But she would electrify the party’s base, turn out the youth at record levels and bring the party together by acknowledging the threat posed by electing Trump Republicans.”

He concludes:

There will never be another Barack Obama, but I have a feeling we’ll be saying the same about AOC. When opportunity meets preparation and history creates the moment, the cream of the crop always rises, leaving everyone else behind. 

Democrats want a fighter, not a politician. They want someone who punches back and isn’t afraid to say what they mean.

In a June appearance with late-night host Stephen, Colbert, Ocasio-Cortez dodged a question dodged a question about her potential future presidential ambitions.

“Listen, I think that we need to focus on keeping a democracy for anybody to be president in the next couple of years. And that’s my central focus is helping the people of this country right now,” she said.

  1. quite a comparison, in congress 2 weeks ran for president for the next 18 months, did nothing in congress, she’s been there 3 years and offered no legistration made no advancements of any kind for America, faked arrest last week for the publicity and thinks her tantrums should be law. I can see how the dems would think she is a good choice.

  2. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ — the next piece of human detritus to possibly lead the greatest nation on earth?

    Over my dead body…and hopefully everyone else’s!

  3. One thing Hopkins forgot to mention when he was listing all the “glowing” attributes AOC possesses. AOC is as dumb as a rock. The Demos may as well not put anybody up if they’re thinking of AOC. Now that I’ve stopped laughing and I can type again, who will the Demos put up? They could always run The Cackler, or Pelosi, or “Two Tons of Fun”, how about Omar, the Iranian who is in Congress legislating for Iranians. Wow! Not much to choose from? Oh, they did have Manchin, but when he sold out over the “anti-inflation bill, better known as Build Back Better bill, he came out of that one smelling like a heap of dung. Joe! Joe! Over here Joe! Jill, grab his lease and bring him over to the teleprompter. Joe! Joe! You hear me?

  4. That is the funniest article I have read in a while! AOC as President!?? She is anti-America in her politics while she lives large on our tax dollars. Just another user with greed, envy, and corruption as her morals. How does this idiot proposing her as President want as her running mate-Ilhan Omar? Or Or Rashida Tlaib or Ayanna Pressley? At least both of them were born in the USA. Oh wait, our transportation guru, Pete Buttigieg! Male, gay, has adopted kids; what more could you ask for!

  5. Democrats cannot stop shooting themselves in the foot. This little twit would completely destroy this country, more than Biden, and that is saying something. I wish all of them would fall off the face of the earth. They have done NOTHING for this country except destroy it, and that includes the racist Obama’s! That SOB started this crap, and he is behind Biden to finish it!!!

    AOC is an idiot, and couldn’t run a sideshow, let alone the country. I am so freaking tired of what they are doing to this country!!! If they hate it so much JUST LEAVE!!

  6. I don’t see AOC getting the backing of the DNC which she needs to get the same treatment Obama got. She gets a lot of media attention, but I haven’t heard much in the way of the party pushing her. That is fitting because of her dumb posturing, which is not easy to hide.

  7. Say What???? She isn’t beholden to corporations, is a prodigious small-dollar fundraiser???? Let’s look at AOC!
    (Forbes) – Apr 1, 2022: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Net Worth 2022 is $29 Million US Dollars. In 2018 she was elected as a member of the United States Congress and earned $155,000 salary annually before state and federal taxes. She was a Bar server prior to being elected and at that time her net worth was listed as $3,007. So, let’s do the math $155k per year before taxes x 4 years in office = $620k. But AOC’s net worth has risen from $3k to according to Forbes $29million!

  8. AOC does not have the qualifications for becoming President. She is sponsored by Soros and that is how she won previously. It is a crime and a shame that Soros and other millionaires can determine who wins and who loses. This is not a government of the people, by the people or for the people. Laws need to be in place to prevent mill
    ionaires and others (Tech) to choose what will happen.

    The same goes for our election process. The people are not electing the officials. Money talks; Fraud and sneakiness are determining the winners.

  9. She is a dangerous Pied Piper who is largely illusion. Too many voters will buy in to this illusion and overlook substance, said substance showing a total lack of understanding as to basic economics, basic societal foundations including the need for law and order, and absolutely zilch experience on foreign policy. She is a product of the Social Justice Democrats along with many other ”progressives” who envision a socialist paradise. God help the USA if this ever becomes a reality as far as her becoming the democratic nominee.

  10. What’s ridiculous is that the liberal fake news media outlets using, what they believe is a compliment, comparing AOC to Obama. Just look at the Obama/Biden presidencies results. Obama was a failed presidency. Name anything his administration did well. AOC hasn’t done squat either.

    They like to claim that Obama’s affordable care act, which in reality is the Unaffordable Healthcare Act. My comment on this is fact based because Biden’s latest spending bill has billions of dollars to subsidize Obama’s Unaffordable Healthcare Act because it’s not paid for!
