There are always going to be people who think that they know everything their first day on the job just because they have some minor bit of authority.
You run into people like this all the time, especially in the military. I knew a couple of officers who at the end of the day didn’t know their ass from their elbow but would go out of their way to try and tell the people who really knew how to do things how they should be done.
So, we did what any good enlisted men would do, we would do everything exactly the way they told us to do it, and then when things would go then wrong sit and watch them have to explain why they told us to do it incorrectly.
Thirteen Republicans in the House joined Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) on Monday in demanding Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) apologize to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for accusing him of “trying to get me killed.”
The 13 House members sent a joint letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday demanding that Ocasio-Cortez apologize for her conduct. The letter followed one Roy sent the House speaker on Friday over Ocasio-Cortez’s allegation against Cruz.
“It has come to our attention that Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sent out a tweet in which she accused Senator Cruz, in essence, of attempted murder. We believe this is completely unacceptable behavior for a member of Congress to make this kind of scurrilous charge against another member, in the House or Senate, for simply engaging in speech and debate regarding electors as they interpreted the Constitution,” the Monday letter says. “We ask you to call on her to immediately apologize and retract her comments.”
The letter is signed by GOP Reps. Lauren Boebert of Colorado; Ted Budd and Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina; Michael Burgess, Pat Fallon, Ronny Jackson, Pete Sessions, and Randy Weber of Texas; Jeff Duncan of South Carolina; Yvette Harrell of New Mexico, Jody Hice of Georgia; Doug Lamalfa of California; and Barry Moore of Alabama.
Roy demanded Ocasio-Cortez apologize to Cruz on Friday, writing in a letter to Pelosi: “As a member of this body who disagreed with ‘objections’ to the electors and who has expressed publicly my concerns about the events leading to January 6th, it is completely unacceptable behavior for a Member of Congress to make this kind of scurrilous charge against another member in the House or Senate for simply engaging in speech and debate regarding electors as they interpreted the Constitution. I ask you to call on her to immediately apologize and retract her comments.”
“If Representative Ocasio-Cortez does not apologize immediately, we will be forced to find alternative means to condemn this regrettable statement,” Roy added.
