DNC Chairwoman: “A great night for us”

posted at 12:55 pm on January 4, 2012 by Tina Korbe

DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is gleeful this morning, convinced that Mitt Romney’s narrow win of the Iowa caucuses actually amounts to a loss for him — and a boon for Democrats.

“When is a win a loss?” DWS asked in an interview with Gretchen Carlson on Fox News this morning. “When you spent six years and more than $4 million running for the second time trying to win the state of Iowa and you spent the most and only beat the guy who spent the least in the state by eight votes.”

But that’s a bit misleading. As Byron York pointed out (and Ed cited), Romney might have spent more than Santorum — but only because he had more to spend. Romney concentrated far fewer of his total resources on Iowa than did Santorum. Compare Santorum’s 350 Iowa campaign events in 105 days with Romney’s 38 campaign events in a mere 19 days.

Insofar as such a close race indicates that Republican voters in Iowa were still not excited to vote overwhelmingly for Mitt Romney, last night hints at how far the GOP has to go to be prepared for the general. No candidate is yet a rallying point for conservatives, moderates, independents and disaffected Democrats alike. But that still doesn’t make last night “a great night” for Democrats. The GOP base, at least, will be eager to vote against Obama almost no matter who the nominee is. Even if that nominee doesn’t attract disappointed former Obama supporters, that doesn’t mean Obama won’t have his work cut out for him to actually turn enough supporters out at the polls.

Then, too, conventional wisdom and common sense now suggest that the nominee will almost certainly be Romney — and, if that’s not necessarily good news for full-spectrum conservatives (my latest concern is Romney’s loose support for a value-added tax), it’s also really not good news for the Dems, as Carlson pointed out repeatedly to DWS this morning. Romney consistently gives Obama a run for his money in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups, and the latest Rasmussen poll to pit the former Massachusetts governor against the incumbent president shows Romney ahead by six points, 45 to 39. Most importantly, in an election that will be dominated by jobs and the economy, Romney has a much stronger record of job creation than the president. The DNC fear of Romney has been demonstrated repeatedly by their insistent attacks on him — but DWS suggests Romney has earned that scrutiny by repeatedly calling out Obama.

If anything, DWS’ spin of last night and the entire nomination process might eventually do what no Republican campaign has yet been able to do successfully: Incense Republicans enough to vehemently rally around whatever candidate prevails in the primary. Certainly, she makes me feel defensive of Romney — and nobody else has been able to do that.

As Rush was pointing out this afternoon, the longer the primary process is all over the board, the more the GOP is out there and trumping whatever message Obama wants to send. I’m not sure I necessarily agree with that completely but I think the GOP has the opportunity to get a message together and ultimately will have a candidate that can appeal to a broad enough range of voters who despise the idea of giving Obama and the socialists of his administration another four years to kill off all that is good in this country.

Happy Nomad on January 4, 2012 at 1:02 PM

With the crack political instincts on display by DWS, it’s quite possible the Democrats will lose seats this year that aren’t even being voted on in this cycle.

Rational Thought on January 4, 2012 at 1:04 PM

When Obama loses, what are the odds that Wasserman doesn’t claim voter fraud and that when the votes are properly tallied they will show that Barry swept all 57 states? I’m guessing somewhere between 0% and 0.000000000001%.

This will be the Subtitle of Debbie’s Biography.

A moderate got first, followed closely by a Catholic Conservative (as opposed to the conservative candidates who the DNC put the “Dominionist” meme on.) The crank got 3rd, and the bitter has-been got 4th.

This won’t change the Democrats’ talking points that Romney is too extreme to be President should he get the nod, but it should make them sound even more hallow.

I still won’t vote for Romney. But if the Dems keeping throwing the most hated arch-enemies of conservatives (DWS, Pelosi, Schumer, etc) in front of the camera to pound on any prospective GOP candidate, that is more likely to fire up the GOP base than the candidates are.

The DNC shouldnt have to trot out anyone against Romney. The base isn’t enthused about him at all. The best thing to do is to not do anything to get the base fired up, and then sit back and watch the infighting between the far right and the moderate establishment.

Barrack has governed to the right of Romney when comparing records. Sure, Romney talks a good game. But his record as gov of MA is to the left of Obama’s first 3 years as president.

There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that Romney would be any better than Obama as president. You’re basically going on nothing but his word…the world of a guy who has changed his positions more often than I’ve changed socks.

Romney could be a great fiscal conservative president. He could also be the most liberal president ever. We just have no idea what he will be because he has been all things to all people for the past 20 years. He’s crap shoot. And to be honest, I’d rather have the devil I know in there with a GOP house/senate than the devil I don’t know with a Dem house/senate.

============================================

That statement is just plain factually wrong. You cannot separate Romney’s wall street friends who spent over $4,000,000 on negative ads against Newt. But for those adds, no way Romney would have done nearly as well and Newt surely would have done much better.

I hate to say it, but DWS is correct. Romney is not liked by conservative, I mean for goodness sake, what other empirical data we need to merely affirm the obvious

And he would manage the decline so we only go off the cliff at quarter speed is not the enemy here as well? No thanks, I’ll vote for someone that would throw us in reverse and miss the said cliff.

If that someone is my 3rd option, so be it. The vote might be a losing vote, but at least I’ve denied the mandate to continue onwards towards the cliff. But then again, if enough indies, moderates and conservatives feel the same way, the 3rd party could pull an upset of the past 160 years. Eitherway, the GOP as we know it will be cast off or reformed.

They divide us into camps, set one camp against the other, and pour gasoline on a raging fire with their hate and vitriol. Apparently, HotAir is going to adopt the Little Green Footballs business model.

Romney MUST find a way to appeal to conservatives. Instead he ignores our point of view and appeals to liberals. No wonder Whatsherschultz is ecstatic.

The guy who spent the least TIME and FOCUS on Iowa just got the most votes. As far as money goes, he spent 1.6M which is a drop in the bucket. This is the guy who raised 10M in a single day and has 250M in his personal checking account.

Not to mention the Huck-o-bigots make up 60% of Iowa, and are not to be found in NH or Florida.

Your analysis is just wrong to the DNC only the money matters. I would venture to say here that it did matter it destroyed Newt are precisely the right time for Romney to win Iowa well barely win.

Personally, I despise this long, drawn-out primary process. No clear winner after all this time we’ve had to suffer through the polls and the debates and the interviews. But I think the good news for those of us looking to save this country from socialism/bankruptcy, I think this may be a blessing in disguise.

These debates/interviews/polls/primaries are forcing the left-wing media to cover the Republicans. And they can’t focus their (negative) coverage on a single candidate. More face time in the news. Once a nominee is chosen, they do two things:

- Provide very little coverage of the Republican nominee
- Zero in like a laser beam on the weaknesses of the nominee

We’re up against two things:

0bumble
The left-wing media
Unions

Three things (hat tip Monty Python).

Hey Bax, don’t forget how “clean and articulate” he is…

I cannot for the life of me understand why the Democrats willingly chose for a DNC chair the EXACT same person who us Republicans would have chosen for their DNC chair. Love it.

Romney MUST find a way to appeal to conservatives. Instead he ignores our point of view and appeals to liberals. No wonder Whatsherschultz is ecstatic.

Skandia Recluse on January 4, 2012 at 1:18 PM

Exactly right.

I am very strong Conservative and feel we would be far better off with Obama than Romney. Just like we are better off under Obama than McCain. This way the American people are seeing just what people like Romney and McCain actually want. But they are blaming somewhat correctly the Democrats and are setting the GOP straight. Romney would side track us and eventually make the GOP a Communist Party lite.

Had McCain won we would still have ObamaCare but it would have won with bipartisan support. He would have also gotten Amnesty passed thus he would have furthered the DNC agenda more than Obama did. Now there would NOT have been an Arab Spring so we would have been better there possibly.

Wow. She’s actually smiling in that picture/video, and it’s still not working.

AND SHE’S STILL AN IDIOT!

Why do you refuse to look at Romney’s record as governor? He raised taxes, increased spending, banned guns, implemented cap n trade, created a health insurance mandate and 80% of his court appointments were far left liberal judges.

How is he any different than Obama?

angryed on January 4, 2012 at 1:30 PM

Nope, still not defensive of Romney. I will not vote for him.

alwaysfiredup on January 4, 2012 at 12:59 PM

OK, Debbie.

Red Cloud on January 4, 2012 at 1:31 PM

Maybe he’s not a raging communist but he is very liberal.

angryed on January 4, 2012 at 1:27 PM

Romney was a Republican in a very blue state. Was he supposed to impose conservative values on people that didn’t want them?

I’m pretty sure if elected he’s not going to side with the 20% that identify as commun, er, liberal in the US.

The Republican Party has a very effective secret weapon at its disposal as we run up to the elections in November. It’s called Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

Propaganda.

Takes a person that will sell the lie and has no sole.

That screen shot looks like a before Meth and after Meth photo.

HAHAHAHA

You get to keep first for that one.

So he caved to every demand of MA Dems. But he will stand up and fight against Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Got it.
