RNC, DNC feud over tea party remark By: Tim Mak January 12, 2012 07:07 AM EST

A brawl erupted between the two national party organizations as Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Wednesday accused his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, of blaming the tea party for the Tucson shooting that badly wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.).

At the center of flap were statements Wasserman Schultz made at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, in response to a question about how to improve the level of civility in Congress.

“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, and I know everybody is so thrilled, as I am, to hear that, making tremendous progress,” said Wasserman Schultz, according to C-SPAN.

“But the discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular, to answer your question, very specifically, has really changed. And I’ll tell you, I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it takes a very precipitous turn towards edginess and a lack of civility with the growth of the tea party movement,” she immediately added.

Wasserman Schultz continued by referring to the raucous town hall meetings in the lead-up to the 2010 elections, arguing that “in the time that I’ve been in my state Legislature and in Congress, I’ve never seen a time that was more divisive or where discourse was less civil.”

Priebus quickly went on the offensive, tweeting Wednesday afternoon that the Democratic National Committee chairwoman had recklessly connected the tea party movement to a tragedy. Priebus said Schultz “should apologize immediately for her reckless comments blaming the tea party for the horrific Tuscon [sic] shooting.”

There she goes again. Wind her up and she spits out something obnoxious or a gaffe.

Asking a democRAT about civility is like asking a barbarian about opera.

Debbie-who-will-not-wash-her-hair said this specifically because of her feud with TEA party favorite, Allen West. She’s a deplorable slug.

Please. Slugs serve a useful purpose in the ecosystem.

As for the DemonRAT CommiecRAT party, we need to hang the “Occupiers” around their necks at every opportunity.

This looks like a good opportunity.

Priebus failed again ~ it's so easy to flip the Gabby charge on them by noting that the killer got his guns while Eric Holder was operating "Fast and Furious" down in Arizona ~ and dealers were afraid to NOT sell guns to people the FBI said were OK.

"So don't blame us for doing your killings".

DWS, abbreviated speaky for idiot is just what the DNC likes to have in their management system. Just like Obama she follows orders.

Each, and every morning there is the teleconference in which the men/women (Human maybe) behind the Democrat curtain unveil the days marching orders, whom will do what to stir up stuff today. Democrats are politics 24/7, 365. It’s the air they breathe.

DWS is spouting the Dem Inc. playbook as per her instructions from behind the Burka that cloaks the faces of the Democrat party war room leadership that morning.

Gotta git that Burka off, and expose those faces.

The RNC should (but won’t) ask Debbie why she didn’t tell Jimmy Hoffa to “tone it down” when he said that the members of the Tea Party need to be taken out.

Sheriff “Dipstick” (Dupnik) did the same thing but worse at the time. They know we are going to clean their clock again and are desperate to do anything to slander us. (the perp turned out to be a Leftie supporter of the congressman)

All Commies Lie. The Dem party is and has been in total control by the Commies/Progressives/Marxists/Fascists since Obozo took power.

It is amazing to me how quietly the Tea Party is now. That does not mean we are not doing things.

I had an email exchange with a media figure -- not employed by the media but a frequent guest to promote her business.

She too claims the "teabaggers" are gun-lovers who like to shoot people. (She calls us racists and all the other usual stuff of course.)

In her two responses to me she kept pointing to the Koch brothers as proof of her feelings about the Tea Party. Rich right wingers are paying the "teabaggers" to do horrible things, you see.

I detest all things PC, so let me rave on in a most un-PC manner:
1. Mrs. Schultz really needs to stop sticking her finger in the electric sockets. It is affecting her ability to discern between right and wrong.
2. If she wants to Wasserman, divorce Mr. Schultz and you’ll both be happier.
3. Does Mrs. Schultz’s knowledge of “teabagging” come from personal experience? Pitcher or catcher?
4. Mrs. Schultz is in favor of child molesting (aka choice).
5. She absolutely favors the Mohammedan view of world domination, forgetting that women are worth less than a good camel to them.

Feel free to add additional un-PC comments.

A conservative Federal Judge was murdered in this shooting spree, but the media and the Dems refuse to remind us of that fact. They go on and on about Gabby, who is a nice lady and gave the judge all of two sentences on the day of his funeral. He was killed because he went over to greet her.

List of heros included Obama, he was a flag burner, communist manifesto is among favorite books — Gifford’s shooter was one of theirs.

DWS needs a Glassectomy.

What is a Glassectomy?

A Glassectomy involves placing a window where your belly-button is located so you can see where you are walking.

Studies have shown a preponderance of this operation is done on Democrats.
