The perpetual jokes about dumb blonds don’t apply to Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Her hair may be tangled, but her mind isn’t. Her powers of memorization have enabled her flawlessly to learn all the irrational spin from the politically shady style of Democratic Chicago campaigning.
Wasserman Schultz employed her shady and false tactics on July 18 on the floor of the House. Color, or race, doesn’t matter if a Republican is the target. Wasserman Schultz charged a fellow Floridian, Allen West, a black Republican, with supporting the GOP plan to “cut, cap, and balance.” She lied that he would cut money for Medicare and Social Security beneficiaries. West had left the floor. So, Wasserman Schultz made the charge behind his back.
This was so offensive to West, he opened fire. In an email, he called her “vile, unprofessional, despicable and cowardly.”
West is a retired Army lieutenant colonel, highly honored for valor in Iraq and Afghanistan. The two representatives from Florida have been disputing for years.
“If you have something to say to me,” West wrote Wasserman Schultz (his military toughness coming out), “stop being a coward and say it to my face; otherwise shut the heck up.” Naturally, the entire Democratic House came down on his head.
Obama must be so proud that he appointed the blond Florida congressperson as chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). The committee dutifully confirmed her appointment in May. Philosophically, she is a youngish version of Nancy Pelosi. She has, for instance, called ObamaCare a matter of “life or death.”
On July 13, Wasserman Schultz appeared on the Obama-loving channel MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell to deplore any plan to “shove” the debt ceiling decision back on President Obama. Believing she is grown-up herself, Wasserman Schultz contended that Americans everywhere want everyone in Washington to sit at the table like grownups and work out a deal.
