The man who served by President Obama’s side for eight years, who was begged by millions of Democrats to run for President in 2016 and again in 2020, is apparently too far to the right on climate change for Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Today, she called his search for “middle ground” on climate change “a dealbreaker.”
This is a dealbreaker.
There is no “middle ground” w/ climate denial & delay.
Blaming “blue collar” Americans as the main opponents to bold climate policy is gas lobbyist 101.
We’re not going to solve the climate crisis w/ this lack of leadership. Our kids’ lives are at stake. https://t.co/KvrBmaJd75

The spokesperson for the Green New Deal has been espousing far-left rhetoric since before she was elected. Now that she’s on Capitol Hill, her promotion of all ideas that are deemed progressive enough by the Justice Democrats has been unrelenting and unbending.
From the Green New Deal to Medicare-for-All, it’s socialism or bust for the Congresswoman.
Biden, whose entry into the Democratic field was met with sighs of relief from moderates, has been playing the delicate game of being all things to all Democrats. He has claimed to have a progressive track record while hammering home his ability to be a common sense alternative to President Trump. But in doing so, he’s been called out by the left for not being progressive enough. This latest jab from a sitting member of the House is indicative of the types of attacks that will ramp up as primary season draws closer to the primaries.
I never thought I’d see the day when someone like Biden would be considered too conservative to represent the Democratic Party, but those days snuck up on us quickly. The Democratic Party is losing itself in its own outrage.
