Former Bartender Ocasio-Cortez Doesn’t Think Howard Schultz Has Enough Experience to be President

Oh, the irony.

Irony is completely lost on Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman Congresswoman from New York, who suggested Wednesday morning that former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz does not have the experience necessary to run for President.

‘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?” the former bartender-turned Congresswoman asked on Twitter.

She was responding to a Daily Beast report that Schultz is considering an independent run for president due to her plans to tax the ever-loving hell out of the rich, which certainly includes Schultz. Her comments were obviously made in reference to the suggestions given to her when she decided to run for Congress without any prior experience governing.

Like it or not, Americans view massively successful businesspeople like Shultz or President Donald J. Trump as presidential contenders because they have experience running massive organizations, not entirely dissimilar to the federal government. In this sense, they have the requisite experience in which voters are interested.

Ocasio-Cortez is so self-absorbed that she cannot understand the difference between herself, whose only experience in the private sector was fetching gin and tonics, and Shultz, who at his peak was one of the most powerful businesspeople on the planet. This is who the fine people in New York’s 14th District elected to represent them in Congress.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
