The book “The Squad: AOC and the Hope of a Political Revolution” by Ryan Grim details Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s strained relationship with fellow Democrats and the failure of her Green New Deal due to overconfidence.

The book highlights her clashes with Nancy Pelosi and Pramila Jayapal, and the missteps in the rollout of the Green New Deal.

It also discusses Ocasio-Cortez’s early attempts to break away from her party and her struggle to balance radical politics with personal warmth. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“I think we had done such a good job up until that point of massaging the language that there was a kind of arrogance of like: ‘We can actually appease everyone here’ instead of sticking to our guns and making a real choice about charting a different direction,” Evan Weber stated in the book.

“While somebody like Obama wants to be seen as being all things to all people, Ocasio-Cortez actually thinks she can be all things to all people while leading a political revolution,” Grim wrote.

“The gap between AOC’s power outside the Capitol and the display of it on day one inside could hardly have been greater.”

“To reshape that landscape, she was rapidly sacrificing her relationships with colleagues,” Grim wrote.

“Ocasio-Cortez’s curse was her desire to win consensus that she was there to help, coupled with her radical politics,” Grim added.

“She wanted to remake the system and to be thanked for doing it.”
