Freshman Representative Katie Porter is not only good at her jobs; she is excellent and prepared when on air. It is not hard to understand why most Progressives are enamored with the young freshman women like Katie Porter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley. They are very apt both real time in front of a camera and on social media.
Katie Porter put on an interviewing clinic
Here is a deconstruction of Katie Porter's well design response which used her interview time perfectly.
- She immediately answered the question with just a few words. "I'm sorry, but, respectfully, I was very clear in my words. I was using the term REO. And when he couldn't hear me, or I thought he was mishearing me, I took pains to politely correct him—to spell out the acronym, R-E-O. I asked him to be sure we were on the same page so we could have a productive conversation if he knew what an REO was, and he gave the incorrect answer. An REO is not an organization. It's not a real estate organization. That's not correct."
- She then went on the attack pointing out the opponent's lie. "So, for Mr. Carson to now go on TV today and say that I am the one who doesn't know what's going on and he'd be happy to inform me is, frankly, very rich."
- She then took over the narrative to put the message she wanted to place in the ethos. Ultimately she is working for the people and the administration, Carson is derelict. "I spent more than 10 years in the trenches working with families who are facing foreclosure, listening to their stories, and I want Mr. Carson to take this problem very seriously. He still does not have his facts straight. In his statement today on Fox Business he claimed that FHA closes quickly, sells properties very quickly. It does not. The typical time for when FHA forecloses on a property to when that property has stopped being vacant [and] is returned to being a habitable home is over 500 days. So the reality is in the last 24 hours, while he may have learned what an REO is, he has not learned what's going on in FHA and what he needs to do to lead it successfully."
We need more Democrats to mimic these women. Their methods are effective.
