Skip to comments.DNC chair blames Tea Party for Tucson shooting (Crazy moonbat barf alert!)
Posted on 01/11/2012 11:20:04 AM PST by DCBryan1
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., speaking in New Hampshire this morning, reminded her audience of the tragic Tucson shooting last year -- and also insinuated that the Tea Party, which she said regards political opponents as "the enemy," has enhanced divisiveness in Congress and had something to do with the shooting, at least indirectly.
"We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords -- who is doing really well, by the way, -- [was shot]," Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a "Politics and Eggs" forum this morning. "The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I'll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement."
Having brought up the Giffords attack as a political cudgel, Wasserman Schultz doubled down on that attack. "You had town hall meetings that they tried to take over, and you saw some their conduct at those tea party meetings," Wasserman Schultz said today. "When they come and disagree with you, you're not just wrong, you're the enemy."
Warming to that theme, she added that "when they disagree with you on an issue, you're not just wrong, you're a liar."
Giffords' shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, was eventually discovered to be a mentally unstable loner with no immediate partisan agenda and a serious alcohol problem. In 2007, he had attended a forum and asked a question of Giffords, which she had not answered to his satisfaction.

Not only do I disagree with you Debbie, so does my lunch.......Blah!
Oh, and...yes, you ARE the enemy.....
“moonbat” is a very appropriate term for little Debby.
wonder if the tea party could sue for slander, or if the publicity would hurt too much.
Ewww. What a skank.
If ANY Republicans in congress had ANY guts, they would demand this woman be thrown out as chair of the RAT party.
Of course, if anybody in the pubes had any guts, Holder would be in jail, Barney would be in jail, etc., etc.
The tone turned ugly when you opened your big mouth, deb-ster.
Sounds to me like Debbie was the one shot in the head!
DWS is clearly an enemy. And a liar.
But that can be shown by evidence, not by supposition.
I can't wait to see what drivel she spouts as we get closer to the
It's tough being homely but it has to be really tough being stupid too?
Boortz said she looks like Kenny G with a sex change operation.
BTW, Deb, seems like there’s ALOT of rhetoric on your side that needs to be tamed down. Hypocrite.
So? Obama and the RATs say the same thing about Conservatives.
I can't see any evidence in this bogus editorial about killing or shooting.
How nice in memoriam towards the real victims who DIED!
Selfish Bitch, can't let a tragedy go without a political party gain.
There have been hundreds of Occupy Wall-street protesters arrested including rapist and not one T.E.A. Party member arrested.
Yet this b*tch has NO problem with the Occupy Bowel Movement group crapping on cop cars, saying that Jews need to be put back in ovens, raping women, threatening cops with knives, etc etc etc..Hey Debbie, your the gift that keeps on giving you sack of crap, just keep talking
Howard Dean in drag?
