Great news from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: We’ve turned this economy around

posted at 4:00 pm on June 12, 2011 by Allahpundit

The horrendous economic indicators of late have had me worried about a double-dip, but after this Reality-Based newsflash from DWS, I feel much better. To think, some people call her Debbie Downer; why, she’s practically bursting with optimism and good vibes. May I suggest a campaign slogan for her and the rest of the DNC?

“Obama 2012: You’re Welcome, America.”

By the same logic, I guess, Anthony Weiner’s little nob-tweeting habit has “turned his mayoral campaign around.” There’s a second clip included below of Wasserman-Schultz and Priebus chatting about him this morning too, just so that you can watch DWS squirm when asked by Gregory why she was so quick to dismiss the scandal as a “personal matter” after Weiner’s initial, utterly preposterous explanation. An idle thought: Some liberals (but not Debbie) are still willing to defend Weiner on account of the fact that he fights hard for the progressive agenda. How exactly is he fighting for their agenda, though, by singlehandedly derailing their “Republicans want to kill grandma” Medicare messaging push in the media? He’s killing their agenda. If he cared more about The Cause than about impressing women with his congressional cachet, he would have fallen on his sword a week ago. Instead, he’s prepared to let the Democrats bleed for months if need be as the media digs up one new sleazy revelation after another. What a selfless warrior he is.

Slightly OT: Gateway Pundit is reporting that Weiner is now considering resigning.

Too bad BHO will still be around.

GrannyDee on June 12, 2011 at 8:51 PM

Yeah, if only it was BHO!

Every time I drink wine I get those lines through my words…i don’t mean it.

tinkerthinker on June 12, 2011 at 10:30 PM

So that’s why Obama has canceled daily economic briefings. Silly me, I thought he was clearing his schedule for more fundraisers & golf.

P.S. Where the hell are the JOBS? Why are groceries so expensive? Why are gas prices so high?

P.P.S Democrat Debbie Downer’s own party, has failed to produce a budget for over 769 days. She’s a lost ball in high weeds.

ROFLMAO!!!

THAT explains the hair color! Doesn’t seem to help her!

Roy Rogers on June 12, 2011 at 11:04 PM

Yes, they’ve got the economy going around, as in the circular motion of something going down the toilet.

Snort!

Lil Debbiie has replaced Wiener as the demonrat attack dog. I wonder if she is sending picture of her junk to Boy Scouts too. It seems to be the natural thing for “forward” thinking libs to do.

volsense on June 12, 2011 at 4:52 PM

She’s not as good an actor as the weiner though.

Her pretend “Righteous Indignation” is so obviously fake, and all she does is repeat the same 3 or 4 talking points over and over.

Weiner was shooting for Lib-Loon-Rock-Star staus a la Gore. I’m gonna miss that special grade of lib-loon madness.

DWS is just a useful-idiot-grade lib.

Tim_CA on June 12, 2011 at 11:58 PM

DWS, What an idiot. The moral equivalent argument fails the laugh test!

First this isn’t a “sex scandal”. So what is it?

It’s the Accusations, Stupid!
Wiener falsely accused innocent Americans of a federal crime with felony time (10 years) of hacking his accounts!

It’s the Smearing, Stupid!
Wiener stated/implied that Tweeter, Y-frog and Blackberry were wayyyyyyyyyyy to easy to hack.

These two set this scandal into a world of it’s own. There is NO equivalent.
NO moral equivalent at all.
Add to that………………

It’s the underage children, Stupid!
It’s the miss-use of government time and equipment, Stupid!
It’s the creep factor, Stupid!
It’s the creepier factor, Stupid! (see today house gym photos).

DWS “At the end of the day, a member of Congress makes their own decision, and that’s certainly going to be up to Anthony Weiner. But we have made clear that he needs to resign. He needs to focus on getting his own personal issues in order,” said Schultz.

Bull.

Expulsion is the most serious form of disciplinary action that can be taken against a Member of Congress. Article I, Section 5 of the United States Constitution provides that “Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member.”
Expulsion for disorderly behavior.

Does Congress consider, congress people falsely accused innocent Americans of a federal crime, “disorderly behavior”?
Does Congress consider congress people, Smearing other with false accusations “disorderly behavior”?
Does Congress consider congress people, sending picture of their junk to minor children and other a “disorderly behavior”?

If yes, then they can kick him out.
We are a Republic not a Democracy how difficult is it for these idiots to understand that?

She needs a new hairstyle.

JellyToast on June 13, 2011 at 6:28 AM

I’m glad she’s on their side.

She’s real right? I mean, she is a real human being, not some CGI creation?

We should try to help DWS get booked on as many news shows as possible. Her poor grasp of reality makes the GOP’s job easier.

Maybe we should all send her a link to Romney’s new ad.

hawksruleva on June 13, 2011 at 3:43 PM

Isn’t “turn around” the same as “spin”?
