Is this another reiteration of “fake but accurate”?
…you know the Democrats are in deep trouble.
Either Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is clueless, she thinks the voters are, or some combination of both. I vote for both.
Well, okay, if you want to take credit for the way things are going, Debbie:
Democrats are ready to take responsibility for the state of the economy and they deserve credit for putting it on the right track, the party’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said on Wednesday.
“We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz told Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Playbook Breakfast.’
Pace of recovery, Debbie? What friggin’ recovery?
This woman is clearly delusional… and part of the delusion seems to be that everyone thinks the economy is just fine.
Keep it up, Debbie… you’re writing great copy for Republican or conservative ads for Election 2012.
Jimmy at Sundries Shack has done the unthinkable–well, unthinkable to Obamacrats, at least–he’s applied math to some of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s pronouncements:
Let me say that again. This administration has spent over one and one-quarter million dollars per job created in the past 2 1/2 years. And they proud of that? They want to hang their hat on that?
Read the whole thing for the actual math… the bottom line, however, is quite devastating enough.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz demonstrates her grasp of doublespeak:
“We have 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country that are part of the backbone of our economy and this is not only a reality but a necessity,” she said. ”And that it would be harmful–the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrested them all.”
Gee, one might think that illegal immigrants were… well… breaking the law!
File this one under “do as I say, not as I do.”
The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appears to drive a foreign car, despite criticizing Republican presidential candidates for supposedly favoring foreign auto manufacturers.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the chairwoman of the DNC, ripped into Republican presidential contenders who opposed President Obama’s 2009 bailouts for General Motors and Chrysler.
“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes,” she said at a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor.
But according to Florida motor vehicle records, the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car whose parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials.
But… but… but… she’s one of the self-anointed elite, she’s allowed to break the rules she sets for other people!
Just when I think the Democrats can’t sink any lower, they prove me wrong:
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday met with representative delegates of the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) and the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC). But while the meeting was meant to shore up bipartisan support for Israel from American Jewish political organizations, it quickly became a partisan bickering match, with the chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, using the platform to tell Republican Jews to stop doing what they’re doing.
The RJC used their opening remarks to say that now was a historical time for the future of the Middle East, and to thank Prime Minister Netanyahu for meeting with them. But while the NJDC’s chairman said essentially the same thing, he was followed by hyper-partisan comments, first from Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Steve Israel and then from the DNC chair, Wasserman Schultz.
Sitting in front of Netanyahu, the DNC chair asked the RJC to “pledge to refrain in 2012 from using Israel as part of the issues in campaigns,” according to RJC executive director Matt Brooks. “It started that way. Right from the get go they just jumped on it.”
Admittedly, this isn’t all Democrats doing this, but then again, the Democratic National Committee did elect Wasserman Schultz in an open election among their members, so they’re at least partially responsible for her behavior. And her antics have been known for some time, since at least 2006. So it’s not like she was an unknown quantity when campaigning to take over the DNC.
