Can Wasserman Schultz’s Nose Get Any Bigger?
September 10, 2012 by Bryan Nash
Just when you thought the nose of Democratic National Committee Chairwoman and U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) couldn’t get any bigger, it has. Following Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s speech, Democrats enjoyed comparing the Wisconsin Representative to Pinocchio. But if anyone’s nose is growing this election, it’s Wasserman Schultz’s.
On Sept. 4, Wasserman Schultz told a group of Jews that Michael Oren, the Israeli Ambassador to the United States, said Republican policies are dangerous to Israel.
“I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel,” Wasserman Schultz informed the Jewish Democrats. Her comment was caught on tape.
Oren insists he never said such a thing.
“I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle,” Oren said.
To make matters more complicated, Wasserman Schultz says she never said what Oren said he never said.
In an interview with FoxNews, Wasserman Schultz was asked about the incident. She clearly lied, blaming the confusion on the “deliberately” deceptive conservative media.
“I didn’t say he said that. And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising they would deliberately misquote me.”
