DNC chairwoman: What, politics influencing the president’s Keystone XL delay? Nahhh.

posted at 6:01 pm on April 20, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

You’ve got to admit, she does an almost impressive job here deflecting David Gregory’s persistence, brazenly ignoring the reality of the situation, and walking that fine line between angering neither of the warring factions within her own party — just like the White House is doing on the issue. It couldn’t possibly be any more painfully obvious that the now once again delayed-through-the-election Keystone XL pipeline decision no longer has anything to do with the actual merits of the projects and that it is now all about appeasing the opposition from the small but well-monied and vociferously “green” wing of the Democratic donor class versus avoiding putting vulnerable Democrats from pro-energy states into a difficult spot. Quite the conundrum for the White House, really, but their talking-points robots are out on the job! Starting at around the 4:00 mark:

She’s actually frighteningly less attractive when she smiles. At least I think that snaggletoothed about-to-eat-your-soul grimace in the screencap is a smile.

If you look at her wiki page, she majored in something called “campaigning” in college.

“Campaigning” = “Lying With a Straight Face”.

It takes hundreds of thousands of gallons of jet fuel to send Barak to Hawaii on vacations but no gas for thee or me. Now that’s a hell of a carbon footprint. It’s not the cost of the vacations it the hypocrisy of using that much fuel for a vacation for one guy who claims to be looking out for the little guy. This economy is going nowhere with energy prices like they are. Conservatives need to be pounding that message.

Yes: the first time I saw her i thought she looked OK-I guess the pressures of constant lying takes a toll.

Allow me to engage in a little sexism.

Liberal woman are typically ugly because their hearts are dark. Their joy is found in making other people unhappy. They don’t even put the fun in dysfunctional. Then think about the sadness and depression that brings you down when you realize that killing babies actually is wrong.

Ok Hot Air settle down. The point is not that DWS is a hack. The point is that the Administration has realized that they have committed an impeachable office by not making a decisions for the purpose of personal gain ie. the up coming elections. This is a criminal act and they are trying to cloud the issue. If all that can be done is pick on DWS’s hair then they win and “We The People” loses again.

I guess she’s confident, sure in the knowledge that GOP leadership will delivery a Democratic majority right on cue.

BuckeyeSam on April 20, 2014 at 8:13 PM

When it comes to the Democrats no one lies better. However, the Keystone Pipeline is good for the country, of that there is little doubt. Now, it might not be good for Democrats but that’s because their donors don’t like it. I doubt there are many Democrats who care either way but one thing is quite obvious, they care a lot less about the country than they do getting their money.

It’s so sad and dangerous that we have A president who thinks taking care of the Extreme half of the Democrat party and making them happy is more important than doing right for this country. This is what happens when you let the federal government grow too big and powerful and our founding fathers warned us about this. Now when people protest and says the federal government too powerful we are labeled home-grown terrorists by the Democratic Party. The federal government will never give up power especially when the American people are playing nice.
