Outspoken DNC Chairwoman Makes Stream Of Gaffes, GOP Cheers

Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the newly appointed chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, spent the first four weeks in office committing gaffe after political gaffe.

“In the four weeks since she succeeded Tim Kaine, Wasserman Schultz has been called out by four nonpartisan fact-checkers for mischaracterizing the GOP’s Medicare plan. She’s accused Republicans of wanting to reinstate segregation and of waging a ‘war on women,’” read a POLITICO article. “She has asserted, somewhat nonsensically, that the GOP wants to make illegal immigration — by definition against the law — ‘a crime.’ She’s also been mocked for driving a foreign car after pounding Republicans for not supporting the American auto industry.”

Thus far, Democrats are standing by her. The consensus seems to be that Wasserman Schultz has simply had a rocky start. Republicans are less forgiving, though, enjoying many a laugh at the chairwoman’s expense.

“It is reassuring to know that there’s someone standing by to step in, just in case Joe Biden needs time off,” wrote Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee in an email newsletter, quoted by the article.

“Obama’s chair of the DNC’s got a case of foot-in-mouth disease, and we’re just begging: Don’t shut up, please!” proclaims a YouTube video produced by conservative group American Crossroads, according to the article.

Wasserman Schultz’s latest misstep came in comparing some States’ legislative efforts to require voters to show photo identification. Sunday, on the African-American network TV One’s “Washington Watch” program, the DNC chair said Republicans “want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates than Republican candidates.”

“You know, personally, she has my sympathy,” Huckabee wrote. “In these days when there are far too many partisan attack dogs stirring up divisiveness and vitriol, it kind of speaks well for her that she’s that bad at it.”

    Oh BTW your other choice has her eyes set for the world bank.
    Mrs Clinton, the former First Lady, Senator for New York and rival to Mr Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary race, is said to be eager to become the first female president of the World Bank should the post become vacant next year.

    “Hillary Clinton wants the job,” a source close to Mrs Clinton told Reuters, which broke the news of the possible move.

    Robert Zoellick, a former Bush administration official, is believed to be ready to step down as president at the end of his term in the middle of next year.

    Mrs Clinton has made clear she does not want to remain US Secretary of State, a gruelling job demanding months of world travel each year, beyond Mr Obama’s first term.
    Talk about purse strings!
