Audio: Hey, remember when Debbie Wasserman-Schultz decided she was going to play civility cop?

posted at 10:06 pm on April 6, 2011 by Allahpundit

You probably don’t remember. It happened a long time ago, in a different political era. By which, of course, I mean “January.” That was when her friend Gabby Giffords got shot and she and the rest of the left decided, with not a shred of justification, to treat it as a Teachable Moment about Republican incivility. As I say, you probably don’t remember. But Laura Ingraham does, just like she remembers The One lecturing us about scaring the elderly before Pelosi started prattling on about the coming senior apocalypse.

I know I said it once before today, but it bears repeating: Excellent job, Mr. President. Of all the shameless hacks in Washington whom you could have chosen for the DNC, you picked one whose shamelessness is truly exceptional. I can’t wait for the next lecture on how “we can agree without being disagreeable.”

Ah, the irony. She is the biggest whining hack the DNC could have ever chosen. I feared having a relatively rational person like Strickland in the job.

Watching her should be fun.

The voice bothers me the most.
So does the hair.

OmahaConservative on April 6, 2011 at 10:10 PM

That voice. Is Sergeant WassermanSchultz married, and if so is her husband dealing with depression?

Bishop on April 6, 2011 at 10:10 PM

Hypocrisy as usual in the Democratic ranks.

Hey! Maybe next a lecture from Barney Frank of fiscal responsibility and oversight.

She’s married!! She must be loaded. No other explanation as to why a human male would share a bed with that thing.

The path that the Republicans are taking to achieve this is what we call in the media, what I’ve called in the media for a long time, a dead demographic story. What is a dead demographic story? A dead demographic story is it only affects them old folks! And them young folks ain’t gonna be paying attention to it! The 18-to-34, the 25-to-49 crowd. Medicare? What the hell’s that?! I’m trying to keep my job, man! What are you talking about?! That doesn’t catch my attention! But it catches the attention of the almost dead!

Everyone knows what Medicare is. It’s that place in the paycheck where 2.9% of our gross income is stolen every 2 weeks by the govt. Right next to that other section called Social Security where 12.4% of our income is stolen every 2 weeks.

Man.

Just when you thought the Democrats couldn’t get any lower than Howard “I have a scream” Dean, they go and prove you wrong.

Howard may be a frothing at the mouth marxist lunatic. Howard may be a bully, a provocateur, and a vile human being. But, at least the guy has half a brain, the evil half, but at least it’s half.

Wasserman Schultz, in addition to being a marxist lunatic, bully, provocateur, and vile, she is not very bright.

I think the democrats have made an excellent choice.

Wasserman is so “talking point” driven that she fails to convince anyone of anything beyond her leftwing base.

Her hysterics and over the top accusations are easily debunked….leaving her with no credibility and very few people taking her seriously.

Before this liberal experiment is over with ,Wasserman will actually make Dean look competent.
She is basically a female version of Alan Grayson…..nothing there but idiotic,infantile statements meant to energize and fuel the hatred of the left.
This Pelosi pawn will have the same low approval ratings and ensure democratic losses just like her liberal mentor Nancy in a very short time.

I’m tired of directing my ire at the Left. It’s a waste of time. They’re children, and never change. I’m going to start red-directing my ire and disgust at conservatives and republicans. That is, at those who refuse to call them out and stand up to them.

Republicans should never lose to or be outplayed by these children. But they are, again and again. If conservatives and republicans can’t figure it out and call them out, I’m done with them. My paramount criterion now: do you call out the Left and fight back, fiercely and relentlessly? If not, I’ve got no interest in you.

I see your point and understand that part of her job is to energize the base.
..But in the process,she will be turning off valuable independents and energizing Republicans with her over the top rhetoric and easily debunked accusations.

Wasserman’s circus act is a double edged sword that will probably do more harm to Obama’s election chances than good.

They don’t have Bush hatred, the Iraq war,and an economic crash to run against this time….they have to rely on their record of failure and broken promises.
Wasserman trying to spin this failure into a success story will only help further erode what little credibility democrats have on the issues now.

apocalypse

Hey Allahpundit, I look forward to meeting you in heaven by the side of the river of life. Everything will be brand “sparkling” new and beautiful, like it used to be in the creation week, and it will stay that way. The second law of thermodynamics (sweat, sorrow, pain and death) will have been “removed,” for the curse will be gone. Isaiah 65:17, “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.” A new heavens and a new earth? You mean God is going to fix it back like it used to be and if you are saved you are going to get to live there forever in great happiness? Wow! It is going to be great! I guess now you can see why I hope you’re there, Allahpundit. Having you around will be lots of fun without any aging, decay, and death. The Bible says, “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes” (Revelation 7:17). Our tears of sorrow will be turned into tears of thanksgiving and joy. So do your best to get there, OK. Remember, meet you at the river of life. Well, thank you for listening. Bye for now.

We have to get over calling liberals/socialists hypocrites. They have no values to be hypocritical about.

Those who believe in relative morality – relative truth – deceit in all things as outlined by Alinsky in his Rule for Radicals, hardly care about principled positions amnyway -other than as pretense for the rubes to swallow.

Eh, not really. Politicians only do what their voters demand of them. Which brings us to the IQ of the typical Wasserman-Hyphen-Badperm voter…

MNHawk on April 7, 2011 at 6:49 AM

Instead of Republican talking points, they should send out “laughing point”.
Every time this woman talks, our side should just laugh at her, and remind her that what she is saying, she was against a few months ago, so she is basically arguing and complaining about herself.
They should laugh and demean her every chance they get.
“Debbie, you are arguing with yourself again, HAHAHAHAHA!”
“Debbie, you forgot to add that after we starve the senior citizens, then we eat them, HAHAHAHAHA!”
“Debbie, we don’t want to overlook the children, we want to enslave them, HAHAHAHAHA!”
“Debbie, you think dems are the only ones that have parents or love their parents, well you are right, we want out parents to suffer and starve to death, HAHAHAHAHA!”
Ridicule, embarrass, and treat her as a cartoon character that is extreme and out of touch with reality.

We’re not going to be able to do anything about any of these entitlements if what we do is characterize whatever proposals are put out there as ‘Well, you know, that’s the other party being irresponsible . . . the other party is trying to hurt our senior citizens.’

“That’s why I say: If we’re going to frame these in the way that allow us to solve them, then we can’t start off by figuring out a) who is to blame; b) how can we make the American people afraid of the other side. And unfortunately that’s how our politics works right now. . . . And so the question is, at what point can we have a serious conversation about Medicare and its long-term liability, or a serious conversation about Social Security or serious conversation about budget and debt where aren’t simply trying to position ourselves politically?” — Barack Obama, 2010

If people were honest, the first thing they’d say is we’re so far in debt, the future will be painful for everyone, not just Grandma. It’s like living off of credit cards for years, and then the credit card company cutting you off. We’ll be cut off, one way or another. We’re going to have to print more money to pay our debt. And if you think Grandma was going to be in trouble now, that’s nothing compared to $10 gas and $5 milk and $5 for a loaf of Butternut bread. And then the Democrats will b!tch and moan, but, guess what? That will be life in America. You won’t be able to blame Republicans for that. I blame the demagogues who wouldn’t let the Republicans deal responsibly with Social Security in the 1980s.
