She's not all that smart, not just yet. She's rolled out a few whoppers that revealed her lack of education on some core matters. I think she is indeed smart enough to get caught up but it better be quick.
But then again, in the last 10 years or so I have yet to find a single Trump or Tea Party Republican who knows anything about economics. Whether it's communism, capitalism, socialism, it doesn't matter because they NEVER get it right. Instead they spew nonsense and namecall. But they don't have the first clue about the true meaning of any economic system. They have alternative facts and weapons grade revisionism.
Ocasio-Cortez's lack of education can be fixed. I'm doubtful one can correct demagogue true believers on today's Right.
