AOC underestimated Manchin because of bias against the South: El día McDowell

Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t win one county in the state of West Virginia, and they made the critical mistake of underestimating somebody because of where they’re from. And people from the South have historically used that to their advantage. Just like, ‘please assume that I’m stupid because I talk funny. Please assume that you could get one over on me easily because I’m from Virginia or West Virginia’, and then you sit back and you watch … their pomposity melt into horror when they realize they’ve lost,” McDowell said.

Manchin made the anuncio en “Domingo de Fox News” con Bret Baier.

I’ve always said this, Bret, if I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. Simplemente no puedo. He intentado todo lo humanamente posible. I can’t get there … This is a no.

Demócratas have a slim majority in the Senado. Of 100 senators, 50 are Republican, 48 are Democrats, y 2 are Independents who caucus with the left side of the aisle. This electoral makeup made Manchin a key vote for Reconstruir mejor. His decision not to vote for the bill effectively tanked its trajectory.

McDowell went on to slam the left’stemper tantrumsfrom Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley on national television. “Since when do temper tantrums make you look strong? They look weak,” ella dijo.

Omar said Manchin cannot be trusted and hisexcuses” fueron “bulls—.”

Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Senate as part of anold boysclub.

Pressley piled onto the Manchin criticism and said that all she wants for Christmas isa senator that has compassion for the American people and not contempt.

“[The Democrats are] a party controlled by petulant children … They’re mad and … blinded by ideology. And this is not the work of pragmatic people, danger is inside,” McDowell said.

Manchin said in September thatspending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, [cuando] we can’t even pay for the essential social programs like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity.

A friend of Manchin’s said that one of the straws that broke the BBB bill’s trajectory was a statement put out by the Biden administration on Thursday that specifically named Manchin and called outRepublican opposition.

Given the protests that Manchin’s family has experienced at his home, which is a boat in Washington HarborI knew this presidential statement was personalizing the game. It put his family at risk, en mi vista,” a Manchin confidant, Steve Clemons, dicho.

Manchin also made it clear that he would not be bludgeoned into voting for BBB and accused the Biden White House of releasingabsolutely inexcusablethings about him to the press after the West Virginia senator backed out of its agenda.

“Básicamente, they retaliated … I figured they would come back strong,” Manchin dijo.

Surely to God we can move one person, seguro, that we can badger and beat one person up. Surely we can get enough protesters to make that person uncomfortable enough. They’ll just say, 'OK, I’ll vote for anything, just quit.’ Bien, adivina qué? I’m from West Virginia. I’m not from where they’re from, and they can just beat the living crap out of people and think they’ll be submissive, período,” Manchin dijo.
