Wasserman Shultz apparently still doing this “We will run on Obamacare” thing

posted at 10:01 pm on December 3, 2013 by Mary Katharine Ham

Half the charm of Kung Fu movies or the Power Rangers is knowing that under the stilted, clumsy, desperately insistent words you hear dubbed is a whole other drama in the actors’ native language. I like to imagine the DNC’s lifelike talking points robot is delivering a hastily prepared rewrite of the thoughts in her head while the truth wreaks havoc of Godzilla-esque proportions just behind her eyes. Imagine administration deadlines getting blown apart like so many model skyscrapers as she speaks.

REINCE PREIBUS: The question that’s on the table right now is which person that’s running as a Democrat in these targeted states, who? –

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: All of our candidates

PRIEBUS: Mary Landrieu, who?

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: All of our candidates are able to run on the provisions of Obamacare.

PRIEBUS: But you won’t say it.

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I just said it.

PRIEBUS: Ok, so they’re going to run on Obamacare?

WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: All of our candidates will be able to use Obamacare as an advantage.

PRIEBUS: Great. Excellent.

Wasserman Schultz follows up by telling one of those mythic success stories of “a woman” under Obamacare. Priebus is doubtful this will trump what polling shows about Obamacare in Montana, Arkansas, South Dakota, etc. Someone better tell Senate Democrats they’re supposed to be running on this thing, not away from it. Lost in translation, I suppose.

PRIEBUS: And that’s fine. I’m happy you’re going to run on Obamacare.

Now, that’s a line that doesn’t require any translation.

Previously:
“I think Democrats will run on Obamacare next year”
“I meant what I said: We’re running on Obamacare next year”

Stay the course, you clueless hack!!

Keep preaching the benefits of being a “political martyr” for Obamacare!
(What do they get after being voted out of office? Sandra Fluke’s phone number?)

From your atheist mouth to God’s ears, let it be so!

But my experience says when Obama hits -20 on approval, it will be a race to the “Repeal” exits by Democrats.

Wow … 6 minutes and I still Bishoped?!?

PolAgnostic on December 3, 2013 at 10:08 PM

I’d laugh at Debbie Dunderhead, but the situation we’re in is much too pathetic. The joke’s on us.

Philly on December 3, 2013 at 10:08 PM

Yeah, Reince. Be happy.

You and yours are going to be running on amnesty – you think that’s going to set well with your base?

F*ckwit.

You guys could destroy the Dems in 2014 – beyond salvage, perhaps for a generation or two. But no, you will f*ck that amnesty chicken to ensure your base stays home and the Dems WILL WIN DESPITE OBAMACARE.

God help me, I hate you f*cking Republican shitwits. Maybe more than I hate the f*cking Democrats at the moment, I’m actually not sure.

Midas on December 3, 2013 at 10:09 PM

Saying anything other than this utter nonsense would be a repudiation of his Highness King Barack I and that is blasphemy to Liberals.

Charlemagne on December 3, 2013 at 10:11 PM

Wasserman Shultz reminds me a lot of a complete idiot I used to know.

anotherJoe on December 3, 2013 at 10:13 PM

There’s something so Creature-from-the-Black-Lagoon about her. Almost makes her lovable. You just gotta know that something really bad happened to DWS in her childhood to make her this way.

TXUS on December 3, 2013 at 10:15 PM

See ya’ next Nov, Deb.

Obamacare will run on you.

Ummm, no.
As stupid and dishonest as this POS DemocRaT is, she has a solid +60% in her district. She Is safe and this creep of a woman knows it- and yes can say anything she wants……and it won’t matter.
.
The real problem are the idiot Libtards that can be even more stupid to buy into her crap and not want a better America- and will vote her into office over and over again.
They just don’t give a shiite.

FlaMurph on December 3, 2013 at 10:39 PM

Democrats running ON Obamacare should be a home run for the Republicans, but Preibus is in a tight spot. He has to spend most of his time trying to convince the base to vote for Christie or Jeb Bush when they would rather vote for real conservatives instead.

It’s going to be a tough sell and will most likely mean a third lost election for the GOP. With odds like that Obamacare will have to take care of itself.

rjcylon on December 3, 2013 at 10:39 PM

Tater Salad on December 3, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Immigration reform turns off the base and gets the Socialists 20-30 million new voters. Nothing else matters if the GOPe gives them this. Game over for good.

Tater Salad on December 3, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Yes; yes, it is.

Amnesty not only destroys the GOP for the foreseeable future by guaranteeing 10′s of millions of new reliable Democrat voters, it will twist the knife that has already been shoved into the economy’s gut.

You think unemployment, food stamp usage, healthcare costs, etc – will *improve* with amnesty? They will become dramatically, catastrophically worse, instantly.

Midas on December 3, 2013 at 11:06 PM

As if it were needed, still more evidence of the brain damage caused by toxins in cheap home hair perms.

True. Not orange enough, either.

This woman, especially her hairdo- although apparently recently updated- reminds me of a famous porn movie fellatrix of the early 1970s. Does this ring a bell with anyone? It’s driving me nuts.

Mason on December 3, 2013 at 11:34 PM

At least DWS stays on-message, no matter what or how bad it is.

The RNC has a hard time articulating a message, pandering as they do from aisle-to-aisle, trying to avoid criticism. This should be an easy win for them, but we have to worry about their philosophy and their campaign skills.

With the Obamacare mess causing millions to lose their insurance, the voters must fire all the Democrats who voted for it, including little Debbie. Won’t miss her or the venom she spews.

Amazingoly on December 4, 2013 at 7:13 AM

Wow, I’m glad I saw this this morning. It reminded me that my wife wanted to drop our poodle off at the groomer this morning. She’s a yappy thing and gets on my nerves. So does the poodle at times.

RealMc on December 4, 2013 at 7:59 AM

Midas on December 3, 2013 at 10:09 PM

That will leave a mark. I can’t argue with it because it’s pretty much how I feel. Repubs will see they are winning and pull out the big guns and start shooting each other. Dems don’t need to work hard to win elections or get their agenda in place because the repubs work really hard to do it for them.

Back to DWS. She is right you know. By the time the election comes BOcare will no longer be a major fluke up. By that time it will still not be causing enough pain and most of the bugs will be worked out of signing up. It will be viewed as a success and the dems will be able to run on it. Heck, polls are even showing that people are starting to look at it more favorably. By next Sept BOcare will be a major success story. The MSM will see to that.

Dr. Frank Enstine on December 4, 2013 at 8:36 AM

I don’t know what will happen to all the Democrat candidates, but a majority of Americans elected a man who spent over 20 years at the feet of the racist Rev. Wright…a man who was mentored by renown communist Frank Marshall Davis…a man with friends like Bill Ayers and Tony Rezko (etc etc), and elected him twice, BTW.

Karmi on December 4, 2013 at 8:43 AM

Let’s make Obamacare optional. If you like your Obamacare plan, you can keep it. If you don’t like it, you can shop for other options.

daveundis on December 4, 2013 at 8:53 AM

To DWS: It you like that strategy, you can keep it.

With the ‘Money Pit’ that is O-Care, the millstone around their necks, the Dems will lock down 35% of the electorate. (With the exception of gerrymandered districts, of course).

socalcon on December 4, 2013 at 9:13 AM

If Priebus were a little quicker on the uptake, he’d ask “how is a 26 year old able to stay on their parents plan when the insurance company cancelled the parents plan?”

TulsAmerican on December 4, 2013 at 10:06 AM

Thankfully the Ds have DWS.

But really, Reince Preibus is the best we can do?

He isn’t much better when one bothers to look at the other side of the coin.

Carnac on December 4, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Dr. Frank Enstine on December 4, 2013 at 8:36 AM

Agree some and disagree some.

BOcare will still be a mess for a subset of people.

The real pain will be delayed for most until after the election, thus most will keep head in sand and assume they are safe.

The Rs, by then, will have screwed the pooch by allowing the subject to change back to immigration.

The base that is assuming they are safe from BOcare will stay home.

BO keeps the Senate and runs amok during his last two years.

2015 should be a disaster for BOcare, but 2016 is too far out to predict.

Carnac on December 4, 2013 at 10:16 AM

DWS lives in her own make believe world where everything the left does is perfect, and no one sees any problems with it. And now, she owns it.

sadatoni on December 4, 2013 at 10:24 AM

Somebody tell me what’s going to happen when these Idiot’s pole numbers get to zero. Is there such a thing as minus in political pole numbers?

Linda Lovelace. Though in fairness, Ms. Lovelace probably had more evolved morals and scruples that DWS ever will.

Midas on December 3, 2013 at 11:06 PM

Agree on all counts. The RNC is desperate for the Latino votes they think they’ll get, even though Levin and others have shown, by the numbers, that regardless of the Republicans position on Amnesty from Reagan through Bush 43, the Latino vote goes overwhelmingly to the Democrats. Yet they’ll continue to pander, and further disenfranchise their base, which could end up throwing away what should be a slam dunk victory after the nightmare of Obamacare.

Anyone who is still sending money to these fools at the RNC or the NRNC is only feeding these squishes and their squishy, loser-oriented plans.
