Debbie Wasserman Schultz Is On A Roll

Earlier this week, the DNC Chair embarrassed herself and her party when she tried to make Republicans pledge (in front of Benjamin Netanyahu) not to use Israel as a campaign issue. Yes, that story came on the heels of Republican, Jane Corwin’s loss in NY 26,  partially, a result of the Dems’ shameless demagoguery of Paul Ryan’s budget plan.

If  epic liberal hypocrisy such as that doesn’t make your head explode, how about some epic liberal projection:

(Briefing Room) — 

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked the GOP presidential contenders on their own terms Thursday.

The Florida representative questioned just how dedicated they were to “American exceptionalism.”

“Mitt Romney, Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman … I’m concerned about their commitment to American exceptionalism,” Wasserman Schultz said at a breakfast for reporters sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.


Right.  Everybody knows that American exceptionalism is a concept that the leader of her party failed to grasp when asked about it early on in his presidency. Everyone knows that it’s a concept that  resonates most with conservatives.

The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty noted in this clip that she wasn’t sure how much the issue would matter to voters in the next general election.

Wasserman-Schultz apparently thinks American exceptionalism  matters plenty to voters. That’s why she’s trying to co-opt it as some kind of a Dem strongpoint.


More Wasserman brilliance on display as she lambastes Republicans for wanting to defund Planned Parenthoods that perform abortions:

DNC Chief Wasserman Shultz: Republicans Are “Anti-Woman”…

(US News) — In an emotional assault on the Republicans, new Democratic Party Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz today called the GOP agenda “anti-women” and “a war on women” that will backfire on Republicans in the 2012 election and provide a cushion for President Obama’s re-election bid.

“It’s just so hard for me to grasp how they could be so anti-women as they are,” she said at a breakfast roundtable with reporters.

Yeah, it’s just so hard to grasp why anyone would want to defund PP abortion clinics, especially since according to the latest Gallup Poll,  a majority of Americans Want All or Most Abortions Illegal.

Another swing and miss.

Strike three:

Andrew Malcolm: DNC chairwoman supports U.S. auto industry so much she owns a Japanese car:

The new chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee was criticizing Republicans who opposed President Obama’s bailout of the American automakers union, oh, no, make that American automakers.

“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side,” said Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, “we would be driving foreign cars. They would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes.”

So Michael O’Brien of The Hill newspaper went and checked what kind of automobile loyal-American-car-supporter Debbie Wasserman Schultz owns.

Yup, you guessed it — Japanese.

Investigative journalism at its finest. Kudos to Mr. O’Brian.

By any chance, will he be on Obama’s 2012 campaign beat?


See Moe Lane at Red State:Good News / Bad News for Debbie Wasserman Schultz!

The bad news: she didn’t realize that she was calling members of her own party ‘anti-woman’ before she started screaming to The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack about how people who voted to defund Planned Parenthood are anti-woman!

TWS: But there were eleven [correction: ten] Democrats who voted against funding for Planned Parenthood, so are those eleven Democrats anti-woman?

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, they’re not, because if you, when I declare someone, when I make a broad statement like that, I look at the balance of somebody’s–where their priorities are, the balance of their record. And so one individual isolated vote here and there does not make you anti-woman.

TWS: So what are the broader votes that make those Democrats who voted on those same issues–on Planned Parenthood on H.R. 3–what makes them not anti-woman?

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I don’t think there are any Democrats.

TWS: Eleven.

Dang, and I thought Michael Steel was gaffe-prone.

  1. Heh. I think it’s sorta like Herman Cain tapdancing around Palestinian “right to return” this past weekend.

    Deb (Soul-Glo Deb, not Nice Deb) simply doesn’t know what the phrase “American Exceptionalism” means.


  2. I’m concerned about America’s commitment to American exceptionalism when Americans elect people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz.


  3. Well, I’m just touched that she’s so concerned about the Republican candidates’ commitment to American exceptionalism.

    Everybody knows that American exceptionalism means demanding higher taxes on the rich for more government programs while we sink further and further into debt.

    Why can’t the Republicans (barring non-entity Huntsman) get that through their thick skulls?

  5. You blog is just plain silly, esp when trying to compare/contrast PP with. I took my teenage daughter there and at no tme was abortions mentioned. As a single father w/o many options, PP was very helpful to me. And the poll, again, how does it relate to PP. You reader, I hope, are not that stupid.


  6. And you, Mr. Johnsn, appear to be the product of a public education and certainly as qualified for Occidental, Columbia and Hawvud as our glorious and wonderful Leader-from-the-Rear.

  9. I’m sorry Carlos, you have a problem with Public Education. Care to elaborate to some of us lowly public scholars lad…


  10. Other than teaching revisionist history, teaching socialism, and (this one is the most important) teaching kids how to prevent pregnancy from a cucumber, I guess what really rials me is the generally top-heavy structure of the system (in general – of course anecdotal exceptions can be found) and their constant cry that, if they only had more money, we could do a better job.

    And if you think I’m simply a disgruntled knuckledragger spouting mindless drivel, I’m a former teacher who saw all this coming and saw what it was doing to “the kids,” in theory the reason liberals do almost everything.


  11. Never said you were a disgruntled knuckledragger, I merely take offense to the continued talks against the public system. As a grad of such a system I feel as though I have done pretty well with my life so far.


  12. Interesting. I have a similar, yet still notably different, stance.

    DESPITE being a graduate of the public school system, I feel as though I have done pretty well with my life so far.
