JOE LIEBERMAN: DEM PARTY ISN'T GOING TO SUCCEED WITH OCASIO-CORTEZ POLICIES

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman kept his feud with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez alight Sunday after he accused the socialist millennial of bringing down the Democratic Party.

“She just takes us back to a big-spending, big-taxing Democratic Party,” Mr. Lieberman said Sunday on Fox News. “And the Democratic Party is not going to succeed that way.”

On Thursday, Mr. Lieberman told Fox Business that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who pushes leftist ideas like free healthcare for all and free college tuition, is too “far out” for the majority of Americans.

“With all respect,” he said, “I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is.”

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez later fired back in an irreverent tweet, asking, “New party, who dis?”

Mr. Lieberman on Sunday called the congresswoman’s reaction “kind of silly.”

“Here’s my point,” the former senator said. “We only have two major political parties in America. They have to be big tents if they’re going to succeed. So, OK, she got elected to Congress. She’s inside the tent now.”

Mr. Lieberman pointed out that many of the Democrats who beat Republicans during the midterm elections last year were moderate.

“Also, the other point I wanted to make is, the more typical Democrat elected to the House for the first time this year was — didn’t share her point of view,” he said. “They were center-left.”

Mr. Lieberman, 76, was a Democrat for more than 35 years and was his party’s nominee for vice president in the 2000 election before he became an independent in 2006.

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has not yet responded to his latest criticism.

Joe Lieberman telling Ocasio-Cortez how to be a true democrat reminds me of that time Ted Nugent offered songwriting tips to Paul McCartney.

Remember: the Russians believed that the best way to damage America was help elect Donald Trump.

it's incredible to watch the democratic party turn on one another thanks to the idiocy of liberals who've all but destroyed the party within!!
