At least DWS can admit something is broke

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.”
