Debbie Wasserman-Schultz: NY-9 is “a very difficult district for Democrats”
Hot Air ^ | Sep. 14, 2014 | NA

Posted on 09/14/2011 11:31:33 AM PDT by neverdem

Democratic party leaders insisted the loss wasn’t a harbinger of things to come. “It’s a very difficult district for Democrats,” said Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City. House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), dismissed that idea.

“This is a very seriously Democrat district,” Mr. Boehner said. “This is not a district that Republicans have any right to believe we could win.”

Yeah you have to have very high standards of conduct to be elected as a democrat in the 9th.

So wait.....a Republican hasn't held this seat in 90 years and they consider that to be a "difficult" seat?

I call BS! I think Debbie's knickers are twisted so tight right now, she's not able to form a coherent thought. Uh, come to think of it....she never has! BWAHHH-HAHHHH!

“Difficult?” Is she kidding? The Dems held the bloody district since the 1920s.

Oh, I forgot, Ms. W-Schultz lives in a parallel universe.

Sorry.

Ahem.

Schumer: “Don’t extrapolate anything from this election.” Keep lying to yourself, Chuckie Schumer. What I extrapolate is that the voters (and this was Schumer’s congressional district) are sick of B. Hussein Obama and you, too!

Difficult district for Democrats.

They only have had it since 1922, until now.

No, the representatives up to now have actually been Jews ~ very representative Jews typical of the other Jews in the 9th.

First, there's "Chucky" Schumer. Then there's Tony "Weiner".

Like this district has tens of thousands of guys who sound like, look like, think like, and are exactly like "Chucky" and Tony.

This is the hardest of hard core Democrat backwaters. A Catholic Republican just swept the district.

DWS knows what that message is.

Yup. That District has only been Democrat since the Harding Administration. With a tradition like that, its a hard fight for the Democrats.

I’m quite comfortable with the idea of Brooklyn being a “very difficult district” for D. Maybe even happy about it.

I understand this seat has been held by the Democrats since 1928. I can understand how difficult it has been for them with a 3: 1 ratio of Dems to Repubs to hold this seat.

This is the same seat that helped catapault Geraldine Ferraro and Chuckie Schummer into national politics .

While the White House doesn’t admit that there is any correlation between this seat and the administration’s policy of isolating Isreal, I would disagree.

It speaks of things yet to come in 2012.

Tough Dem district? Then Dumb Debby is saying that there are probably 80-90% other CDs that are even more difficult. So Dumb Debby is admitting that the Dems are lost in 2012. Good work by the DNC chair-idiot. If she is spinnning, she just went around 180 degrees.

...noting its Democratic margins there tend to be the second lowest of all the districts in New York City.

The margin is 'only' two to one instead of three or four to one, right?.

“Can you imagine having a job, where every waking moment is spent, not only denying reality, but attempting to convince others to share in you delusion?”

It’s not so difficult. Any Dem can say almost anything, and Pravda will report it unchallenged. And if it’s important to the cause, Pravda will emphasize the message to get the public to believe it.

DWS could have said NY 9 is a Republican stronghold, and it would have gone reported without challenge.

From now on, Chairman Washerwoman, DemocRATs are going to have a very rough time. Had they continued on unabated Washington, DC would take on an aura similar to Madrid in 1936 and after the right won the results would not be pretty.

Unlike Madrid, Obama doesn’t need the USSR as he’s got most of the nation’s communists either in his White Hut or in the Congress.

Weiner won 60%-40% against Weprin last time out. Hardly a “difficult” seat.

There is no singular reason for the Dems to have lost this particular seat, just a lot of bungling of a lot of things with various constituencies in addition to general malaise and a desire for change.
