DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz Says GOP Using Benghazi to ‘Gin Up Their Base’ Ahead of 2014 Midterm Elections
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) squared off against one another over politicizing the Benghazi investigation this morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’. Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused the GOP of using the Benghazi investigation to drive their base for voter turnout, since they lost on Obamacare. Hmm, lost on Obamacare? Americans are the ones who lost on Obamacare. Bachmann stated that the Democrats have tried to sabotage the investigation process from the beginning. A fact that is most plainly see by the recent revealed Ben Rhodes email that was purposely kept from the committees investigating Benghazi.
“I think it’s important that this is a dialogue and not a monologue, ” Minnesota congresswoman said, adding later, “It’s really clear that the Democrats have tried to sabotage this process from the very beginning,”
Laughing, Wasserman Schultz said, “We don’t have the ability to sabotage.”
One would think that any politician would want to get to the truth of Benghazi and why the American people were mislead by a presidential administration, no matter what the party affiliation. Not Democrats.
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Republicans are digging up the issue of the 2012 attack in Benghazi to drive turnout this election year.
Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, told CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday that as the issue of health care fails rile up their base, House Republicans are refocusing their attention on the assault that left four Americans dead, including the ambassador to Libya.
Schultz appeared Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Rep. Michele Bachmann, a conservative from Minnesota who ran for president in 2012.
“The big question on many people’s minds is, where did this false narrative come from, to blame a video rather than the terrorist actions of Ansar al-Sharia, which were evident on the ground,” Bachmann said. “So I think that what this committee is doing is taking a very careful look at a very deliberate pace to go through depositions and people on the ground to find out the truth of what happened. That’s all people want is the truth.”
The Obama administration first linked the attack to protests sparked by an anti-Muslim film produced in the United States, which had incited violence in other regions at the time. However, it was later revealed to be a coordinated terrorist attack.
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Says Politics Had Nothing to do With Obama’s Delay of Keystone XL Pipeline Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE …
DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) was on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday spinning like a top. DWS told David Gregory that she does not believe that Barack Obama’s decision to delay the XL Keystone pipeline had nothing to do with politics. HAH! Seriously Debbie, the fact that it is referenced that a decision will be made at the earliest after the 2014 has nothing to do with politics? Sorry, but much like everything with Obama, it has everything to do with politics. This is just another example of Barack Obama kicking the political can of issues down the road and playing partisan politics and putting Democrats ahead of Americans. We know that the Keystone XL pipline construction will create primary jobs and secondary one’s from that. But that does not matter to the Food Stamp president.
DWS discusses Keystone XL Pipeline around the 4:00 mark
DWS went on to say, “It [Keyston XL pipeline] affects multiple states. What’s also true is that incumbent senators like [Louisiana Democrat] Mary Landrieu understand the issues that are important on the ground in their states to their constituents.” Yes, they do and they do not appear to be happy.
This woman has the nerve to talk about Tea party extremists when Democrats and Barack Obama are pandering to the far-left wing environmental wackos in delaying the XL Keystone as even Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stated, “Today’s decision by the administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline. The decision’s irresponsible, unnecessary, and unacceptable. By making it clear that they will not move the process forward until there’s a resolution in a lawsuit in Nebraska, the administration is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever.”
DAVID GREGORY: Are you worried, as the party chair, that this shouldn’t be resolved before the election because of the potential impact it could have on vulnerable Democrats?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at. And that the president makes that decision carefully and he doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is.
DAVID GREGORY: Is the issue in the fall a referendum on President Obama?
REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: No, absolutely not. The–
DAVID GREGORY: It’s not?
I suppose the IRS targeting the Tea Party, blaming Benghazi on a video tape and delaying employee mandates for Obamacare were not political either.
Democrat Minion Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) Says Americans Weren’t ‘Myzled’ on Obamacare … Obama & I Said “Nothing That Was Not True”
LIAR, LIAR … Democrat Rep from Florida and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz also got Barack Obama’s “double down” revisionist history talking points and spewed the unbelievable comments on MSNBC as seen in the below video, “No, there was nothing about President Obama or that I or any other Democrat supporting the Affordable Care Act said that was not true.”
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman and chair of the Democratic National Committee, told viewers of MSNBC Tuesday that Americans were not “myzled” by President Obama when it came to being able to keep their health plans under Obamacare.
“At the end of the day, Americans were not only not myzled [sic] by the president, the overwhelming majority of Americans are already insured,” Wasserman Schultz said, apparently mispronouncing the word “misled.”
“At the end of the day, Americans were not only not myzled [sic] by the president, the overwhelming majority of Americans are already insured.”
Apparently Debbie Wasserman Schultz could not read her own Democrat talking points and mispronouncing the word “misled” reading from dummy cards, or was it the White House teleprompter?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants us to believe that even though President Barack Obama spewed from his lips, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period! If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. period!” And in some cases he even added the caveat, “No one will take it away, no matter what.” However, it has been discovered that Obama and Democrats knew in advance that individuals would lose their insurance. But some how knowingly lying to the American people and knowingly misleading them is not “myzled” to Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Even though Democrats like Joe Trippi and former Obama spokesperson Robert Gibbs called it for what it was, wrong and a lie.
But you do not need to take our word for it, watch Obama mislead and lie to the American people below. So ask yourself, does Debbie Wasserman Schultz credible? Hell, are any of them that attempt to defend the indefensible? How is it that Obama cannot say, I take responsibility for it, I knew it was wrong and I said it anyhow in order to get my healthcare plan passed because I know better than you plebes.
Liberal Comedian Bill Maher Calls Out Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) Over Obamacare … Calls Obama a Liar … “To Me, That Is a Lie”
MAHER CALLS OBAMA A LIAR …
Uber-Lib comedian Bill Maher called out Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and the rest of his liberal panel that President Barack Obama lied when he made the promise with Obamacare, that if you like your healthcare coverage, you can keep your healthcare coverage, PERIOD! Hmm, Maher just called Obama a liar. Maher started out by saying that Barack Obama had a bad week. Gee, ya think? However, Maher posed two questions to his panel, “Is a lie justified, if it is for something good. And if he hadn’t told the lie, would Obamacare have been passed?”
To answer Maher’s questions above, No and Hell NO!!! When you are the President of the United States, its all about character. If one has to lie to get their point across, agenda followed or bill passes, obviously you do not have the support of the people. We need to look no further than Obama’s current poll numbers. But the Obamamessiah and liberals think they know more what is best for you than you do. And no, if Obama had actually told the truth that with Obamacare that you could not keep your doctor, you could not keep your insurance, and the price would go up, not down and the deductibles would be increased … it never would have come close to passing. Also, I disagree with the premise that Obamacare is a good thing. It is not just the website roll out that is a disaster, so are the policies and model of Obamacare as well.
“Is a lie justified, if it is for something good. And if he hadn’t told the lie, would Obamacare have been passed?”
Far-left comedian Bill Maher has consistently admitted that President Barack Obama “lied” when he promised all Americans they would be able to keep their health insurance plans under Obamacare. Others, however, like DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, are apparently not quite ready to admit it.
The two found themselves at odds on HBO’s “Real Time” on Friday as they battled over whether it truly was a “lie.”
“It was a bad week for the president, let’s be honest here,” Maher began. “We’re not like them, we don’t live in the bubble. It was a bad week.”
He also asked his panel whether or not a lie is ever “justified” if it’s for something good, and then speculated as to whether Obamacare would have even passed if the president had been honest about the impact it would have on private insurance.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Defends Priorities USA Super PAC Ad Accusing Romney of Killing a Woman & Has No Idea What Political Affiliation an Obama Endorsed Super PAC is … Really Debbie?
Sorry, but Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a nasty rotten individual and a poor excuse for a human being … have you no shame! You certainly have no credibility.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox News Sunday and actually defended the recent Priorities USA Obama Super PAC ad that Mitt Romney was a murderer. Really Debbie, this is even a new low for you and from the things that you have said and done in the past there really was not too much room to go lower. Debbie Wasserman Schultz actually had the audacity to say that the vile ad raised fair questions. What might be even more comical than Debbie Wasserman Schultz not condemning the ad was her refusal to say that Priorities USA, Obama Super PAC was not a Democrat Super PAC. She claimed she did not know the political affiliation of Priorities USA. Really, a Super PAC run by “Bill Burton, who used to work in the White House, worked in Obama campaign in 2008?” Good grief, are you capable of ever telling the truth or do you just speak in talking points?
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democrats have no more credibility, they are incapable of telling a simple truth
“What I think of the ad is that there’s no question that the ad raises facts, such as that Mitt Romney, when he was CEO of Bain Capital, bankrupted companies, laid off workers, cut their benefits and made millions of dollars in profits,” Wasserman Schultz said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“And that ad points out that there are consequences to making decisions like that, that impacted people’s lives in a significant way.”
Democrats have come under fire for the Priorities USA ad, in which Joe Soptic, who lost his job because of Bain Capital, appears to imply that the loss of his health insurance played a role in his wife’s death.
However, the bottom feeder DNC Chair and US rep from Florida actually defended the ad because it illuminated Romney’s time at Bain Capital. However, since this smear ad came out it has been proved that the facts in the ad are false and there was a 6 year time period between the time the woman’s husband was laid off and lost his insurance as to when she died. Also, the woman was employed after her husband was laid off and had her own insurance. This ad more than crossed the line of ethics and civility; however, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and President Obama have yet to condemn it.
Later, as Debbie Wasserman Schultz was probably forced to telling the truth because her nose grew too much. Any novice fact checker could figure out that Priorities USA was a Democrat Super PAC.
Wasserman Schultz also pointed out that, by law, political parties and super-PACs are not supposed to coordinate activities – even at one point saying she didn’t know whether those running Priorities USA, led by two former Obama staffers, were Democrats.
The Florida Democrat later backtracked on that remark on Twitter: “Clearly Priorities USA is a Democratic SuperPAC. Was trying to state the obvious: we have no control over their activities.”
EXIT QUESTION: How can anyone think any Democrats are telling the American people the truth when the DNC Chair is incapable of doing so?

Flashback: Paul Ryan Laughs at Debbie Wasserman Schultz During CNN Interview … “I would Like to have an Adult Level Converstion …”
Today, Rep. Paul Ryan (WI-R) was announced as Mitt Romney’s GOP Vice Presidential candidate; however, remember this blast from the past where Ryan owned Debbie Wasserman Schultz and laughed at her due to her lack of seriousness and childish approach to the dept crisis and entitlements. All Ryan wanted was for Americans to have the same type of social security plan as they do in Congress. However, for Debbie Wasserman Schultz that was too risky. Huh?
With Saturday’s announcement of Rep. Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president, here’s a flashback to 2010 when Ryan and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) appeared together on CNN to discuss the GOP’s then-proposed “Pledge to America.”
Recall that Republicans were swept into the House of Representatives during the midterm elections less than two months later.
Paul Ryan should have known better than to have an adult conversation with Debbie Waasserman Schultz or any other Democrat when it comes to the responsible manner of dealing with the debt, Medicare or Social Security. Libs and Dems would rather accuse Republicans of pushing grandma over the cliff than they would actually fix the problems of unsustainable entitlement or government healthcare or retirement programs.
Let’s start an on-line campaign for Debbie to keep her job as DNC Chair …
Say it isn’t so … Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-D) will not be asked back to be the DNC Chair after the 2012 November elections, win lose or draw. The Shark Tank is reporting that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be out as DNC Chair. Who would have thunk it, her ever present partisan and polarizing demeanor has turned into more of a liability for the President than an asset. In a 2012 election that is supposed to be determined as to which candidate wins the Independent vote … Debbie is a downer for Obama. The thought was when she was put in the position that Debbie would sure up the Jewish vote, oops, except for that “Jew bag” flap.
According to our source within the Democratic Party, who is also a close associate of Wasserman Schultz, the arrangements have already been made for her to leave DNC regardless if President Obama wins re-election or not.
This same source believes that Wasserman Schultz will be forced to resign behind closed doors and then stage an press event in which she tells Americans that her job as the DNC chair was a temporary one and that she is moving on with her congressional career.
I have to agree with Jammie Wearing Fool. I hope that this report is incorrect and Debbie Wasserman Schultz be named DNC Chairwoman for life. Her smug and arrogant attitude can only be described as a plus for the GOP. Every time that Wasserman Schultz opens her mouth, Democrats lose another 100 votes. Please stay, I beg you. However, I will say this, if she much leave the DNC Chair, I implore Florida voters to send her packing in the 2012 election.
What good is a message if its a complete and total lie? Is this really what Democrats are going to run on in 2012?
Yesterday DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on Fox & Friends and lied through her teeth. While spewing her Obama, Democrat talking points she stated, “Unemployment didn’t go up under Obama!” Watch the VIDEO below and meet the Baghdad Bob of the Democrat party.
A note to the DNC, Debbie and Barack, unemployment is not going down because people are getting jobs, its going down because people have given up looking for them. Its hardly because of any jobs that Obama has provided in his wasteful government spending and stimulus plans.
The following from Hot Air are the facts that Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to have trouble comprehending. Or is it that it does not fit her narrative?
Here are a few facts that seem to have gotten past Wasserman Shultz as the head of a major political party, and as a member of Congress:
•Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%. Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
•Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563. In November 2011: 131,708
•Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%. In November 2011: 64.0%
•Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984. In November 2011: 13,303
•Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554. In November 2011: 86,558
Let’s stop the fuzzy math. The unemployment rate is not 8.6%, as stated at the Lonely Conservative, unemployment is 11% if you count those who gave up in despair. Stop the madness if anyone actually thinks that the job situation is getting better. A lower unemployment number has nothing to do with job creation when only 100K jobs are created in a month. Via the the Financial Times comes the following:
According to government statistics, if the same number of people were seeking work today as in 2007, the jobless rate would be 11 per cent. Some have moved from claiming unemployment benefits to disability benefits, and have thus permanently dropped out of the labour force. Others have fallen back on the charity of relatives. Others still have ended up in prison.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says All GOP Candidates the Same … Can’t Defend Obama’s Poll #’s or Economic Policies
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said in CBS’ “Face the Nation,” that all of the GOP candidates are the same. DWS really has no credibility, she is just a walking talking point. Thanks Debbie for making the point to America, just as long as they are “ANY BODY BUT OBAMA. How comical, during t DWS’s talking points below, she is still blaming Bush as, “Hope & Change” from a bumper sticker of “It could have been worse”.
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz says it makes no difference which Republican presidential candidate scores the nomination for 2012 – because they all share extreme-right views that will not prevail over President Obama.
Wasserman Schultz, speaking in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” said Sunday that any Republican candidate in the field would pose a “very stark contrast” when matched up against Mr. Obama in the 2012 election, particularly on issues like Social Security, immigration reform and Medicare.
“It doesn’t much matter which one of the Republicans gets nominated because they’re all the same,” the Florida Democrat said. “They are all embracing and bear-hugging the Tea Party. Moving to the right – they can’t move to the right far enough.
With a job approval rating like Obama has … I would think that you would want to be as distant from Obama’s policies. Debbie Wasserman Schultz might want to take a look in the mirror to see who the extremists is. How DWS can continue to spew these Talking Points when millions of out of work Americans, those who have lost their homes and are on food stamps know better is simply amazing. Keep it up Debbie … Democrats will go down in flames in 2012.
After Historic GOP Win … How Can Anyone Take Democrats or DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Serious … NY-9, “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats”
Why Democrats cannot be believed and Obama is a complete liability … it is no longer spin, its complete and total denial.
Last night the GOP accomplished something they had not done since the Warren Harding Administration in the 1920′s … they won the US House election for NY-9. Republican Bob Turner won a decided and pre-election poll predicted 6 point victory over Democrat David Weprin. This is a Congressional district in the heart of deep, dark blue Democratic New York City. So what did DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz have to say regarding the historic GOP election win and the crushing Democrat loss? I guess denial is not just a river in Egypt.
I guess California is a difficult state for Democrats as well … all states just might be with Obama as Prsident
Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City.
Great sarcasm from Hot Air regarding Wasserman Schultz’s comments. What makes the DNC Chairs comments beyond ignorant is that she is also a New York US House of Representative and knows better. A difficult district to win, really Debbie? Democrats have won this district for the past 88 years but suddenly it became difficult for Democrats. You do realize you have lost all credibility.
Well, in her defense, she still hasn’t gotten past that tough loss when Andrew Peterson edged David O’Connell for the seat … in 1922. The same seat was held by Geraldine Ferraro, Chuck Schumer, and Anthony Weiner … when he had his pants on. Going back to 1996, the lowest percentage a Democrat got in a general election in this seat was 60.8%, which was in 2010 while the Tea Party took 63 seats from Democrats that ended up being a lot more “difficult” than this one. It was such a difficult district that Weiner ran unopposed in 2006 and virtually unopposed in 2008.
So what does this mean for Democrats in 2012? The upcoming election is going to be a repeat of the 2010 midterm elections that saw the GOP make gains in the House, Senate, Governorships and State Legislatures. If Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democrats thinks a safe Democrat district like NY-9 is a difficult place for Democrats … what does that mean for actual swing states like Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada and new battleground states like Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan?
President Barack Obama and his policies will decimate the Democrats party for decades to come.
