Green Room

At least DWS can admit something is broke

posted at 11:42 am on April 1, 2013 by

It’s only to ask for more money, of course, but perhaps the ability to recognize the condition of broke-ness will eventually reach national Democrats’ understanding of a federal government with $90 trillion in unfunded liabilities. But even if it does, it’ll only be to ask for more money.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) says Democrats are “in the red” because they spent more than “everything we had” to get Barack Obama and others elected last November.

In an e-mail to supporters, the DNC chair says:

“We spent everything we had to spend in 2012 to win the White House, add seats in the Senate, and pick up seats in the House — our job was to do everything we could to elect President Obama and other Democrats across the country.”

“We spent every last penny” – and more – Wasserman Schultz says:

“The cardinal sin in campaigns is to sit on money — which is why we spent every last penny we had in 2012 (and then some) to make sure the election went our way.”

As a result, she says “Democrats are in the White House – but we are also in the red.”

It’s the Dem way… Spend it all… even more if you can get away with it.

Are you sure she’s not talking about the federal budget here?

Dems were spending more than they had to further a failed agenda.

Where’s Louis Renault when you need him??

Isn’t that what normally happens when you have a Democrat in the White House?

Setting up the reason for their failures this upcoming mid-term election.

“We spent every last penny”

No, you spent every last penny, borrowed $20 million and spent that, then by not paying it back have accrued more debt to the tune of $21.9 million at the end of February.

Within 90 days she’ll be asking for the debt to be forgiven. And it shall come to pass, by the word of the Messiah.

Maybe the Dems will start taking contributions from SNAP cards.

Uh, I thought Democrats were against BUYING elections.
