Is DWS done as DNC chairwoman?

posted at 12:41 pm on June 25, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

When it comes to facepalm-worthy political gaffes, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has given Vice President Biden a run for his money. While nobody could doubt her fierce loyalty to President Obama, the execution of her vociferous defense is often somewhat… wanting. From insisting that Republicans hope to “literally” drag the nation back to the era of Jim Crow laws (and then trying to deny she had said any such thing, after she had said it on camera), to calling Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget proposal a “tornado through nursing homes,” her tenure has been fraught with hostile and outrageous comments that provide Republicans with continued gifts of political fodder.

From the Shark Tank, it looks like Democrats are just about ready to call it quits with Debbie’s leadership, and are giving her a gentle shove out the door after November’s elections regardless of the results.

We now have learned that Wasserman Schultz will not be back as DNC Chairwoman after the November elections.

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.

The National Journal corroborated last week:

When Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was tapped last year to lead the Democratic National Committee, it seemed like the latest ascension for a fast-rising star destined for even higher positions. Some stumbles and an apparent falling out of favor with the White House had changed that calculus. Now it looks like it could be changing again.

Talk is that Wasserman Schultz will not be asked to serve another term at the DNC, regardless of whether she helps President Obama win a second term. Yet the native New Yorker could use that to her advantage, as she reportedly now has her eye on a House leadership post—perhaps even the highest.

For a second there, thinking about the possibility of DWS holding the Speaker’s gavel seemed positively ludicrous, but then cold reality washed over me, and I remembered that this woman presided over the House of Representatives and is still the Minority Leader, so I wouldn’t put anything past the House Democrats. The mind reels.

Steve Eggleston on June 25, 2012 at 12:44 PM

Whoever thought that picking DWS as DNCCCCP chair was a good idea should also be shoved out. Or, as far as I’m concerned, given a huge bonus.

No, no! Don’t get rid of Debbie. I find her so entertaining and, as the article said, a gift to Republicans. Please, Democrats, keep the incompetent, air-headed Debbie with her continuous nuggest of stupidity in her present job.

But, in the words of EJ, I’ll miss her when she’s gone.

Who could they get who could represent the DemocRAT Party and be an even greater embarrassment?

Why not Moochelle Obama? She’ll be available starting in 2013, and she needs a new “no show” job.

DWS has proven that DNC chair pretty much IS a “no show” job, all Moochelle would have to do is spout off some insults about her country (that she certainly won’t be proud of come January) and sound like an idiot.

It’s not as if she can resume her previous career of (NOT) practicing law (no license) and I doubt the hospital will want her back to her previous (LOL) position of enabling patient dumping by not showing up for work because her husband is a Senator.

wildcat72 on June 25, 2012 at 12:47 PM

DWS’s incompetence is like a tornado running through the DNC, and I couldn’t care less.

After November? Well, then all is well. She will remain a vital asset for the remainder of this election cycle. I’m sure all her valiant media efforts and hard work will be appropriately rewarded.

volsense on June 25, 2012 at 12:53 PM

So when dear Liar isn’t reelected (racists!) she will be blamed. Designated fall clown.

rbj on June 25, 2012 at 12:53 PM

To be honest I’m surprised they are keeping her until November.
They should have dumped her six months ago.
It is mind boggling the way she can describe any event as the exact opposite of what it really is with a straight face.

For example she described the Wisconsin recall as a win for Democrats when EVERYBODY knows what a crushing defeat it was and if Obamacare goes down on Thursday she will somehow spin it as a good thing for the President when EVERYBODY knows it will be a humiliating defeat.

A certain degree of insanity is required to BE a democRAT these days. So it stands to reason their leaders must be even more so.

wildcat72 on June 25, 2012 at 12:56 PM

She’s the epitome of the Left … she’s a Commie, she’s a fanatic, and she’s an incompetent.

The rest of the Commies in Congress are no different than she is. To remove her would be like plucking one weed out of a field full of them.

I want to vomit, at the thought of these pigs in Congress, and in the Oval Office.

OhEssYouCowboys on June 25, 2012 at 12:57 PM

What does the DNC need to pay a chairwoman when MS-DNC performs the service for free?

Anyway, who ever replaces her will be another lying picture of complete inanity, so what’s the difference?

outrageous nonsensical statements are the hallmark of democratic leadership. I think she has a bright future in the party. blind allegiance to the party are what moves you up, not clear thinking or logic.

exceller on June 25, 2012 at 1:01 PM

Damn.

It was so easy to point at that libtard and hold her up as a shining example of liberal brainpower….she always gave us laughs at the expense of dim-witted Dems.

Further….it was so much fun to flame her absolutely partisan, clueless, gaffes and lies.

I’m really gonna miss this oily skank.

And the Democrats consider this a problem since when?

They are probably kicking her out because she hasn’t been vicious enough…

Petty woman

I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
No one could look as f#ked as you
Pity

Petty woman,
won’t you lie to me?
Petty woman,
I couldn’t help but see

Then you look ugly as can be
Are you lonely like mooooochy?

Petty woman, yeah yeah yeah
Petty woman, look my way
Petty woman, say won’t stay with me

‘Cause I need you, I’ll bleat you right
Come with me baby, be a swine tonight

Petty woman,
please walk on by
Petty woman,
don’t make me try
Petty woman, please walk away, hey, okay

If that’s the way it ‘s not be okay
I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
There’ll be tomorrow night,
but wait

What do I see
Why she walking back to me ?
Oh she’s walking back to me

Oh, nooooh, petty woman

The only thing that gives me any consolation is the thought of her becoming their new House Minority leader. I can’t think of anyone more qualified to carry on Fancy Nancy’s legacy of competence, non-partisanship, and logical thought.

Surprised that DWS is leaving the DNC chair spot so soon (presuming it’s true). Dims love dirty fighters–so why wouldn’t they want her staying on in that spot?

And it doesn’t surprise me at all that DWS has ambitions to take over from Aunt Clara. We’ll be hearing from Debbie WashYerHair Sheesh for a long time.

MisterElephant on June 25, 2012 at 1:33 PM

“talking points robot” is my favorite phrase ever provided from the team here! Every time I see DWS that is all I can think of because that is all she does. She will not resign – she will simply have her micro-chip reprogrammed with a 2012 hair makeover
