Debbie Wasserman Schultz Tangles With Gretchen Carlson On Fox & Friends
Fox ^ | 2/29/12 | Fox

Posted on 02/29/2012 9:11:12 AM PST by Nachum

In an at-times heated interview, Fox and Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson grilled Democratic Nation Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz over high gas prices, and played video of her criticizing President Bush over the same problem.

“So I think you felt the President could have done something about lowering the gas prices,” Carlson pressed. “What do you say now that gas prices are going to reach $5 a gallon under President Obama?”

“What I was referring to in that speech, as I have for many years, is that focusing on fossil fuels and continuing the ‘drill baby drill’ strategy that President Obama rightly referred to the other day in south Florida as ‘a bumper sticker, not an energy policy,’ is not the way to go,” Schultz replied. “We are not going to address gas prices over the long-term because there is — there is no President in the short-term that can really change policy and impact gas prices in a significant way. But what we do need to do is over the short-term and long-term make sure that we are using the ‘all of the above’ strategy that President Obama has employed: more domestic energy production than we’ve had in eight years, making sure that we invest for the future in alternative energy like wind and solar and hydroelectric power, so that we can really start to impact our need to depend on…”

“But A lot of Americans are wondering what’s going to happen now and a lot of those things take time,” Carlson shot back.

“Affecting gas prices takes time,” Schultz acknowledged. “You’re absolutely right,”

The fact that she can ever say anything at all with a straight face is a true testament to her idiocy.

We have come to the point where the Dems can say anything, and their base, which includes the media, will swallow it, without question.

“We are not going to address gas prices over the long-term because there is — there is no President in the short-term that can really change policy and impact gas prices in a significant way."

Unless the President is a republican. Then, he is expected to stop hurricanes and command gas prices to magically get lower without focusing on fossil fuels.

What a moron.

Gretchen has mixed it up with Debbie Downer on a few occasions. She has what Lou Reed called “Spunk” I always liked Gretchen even when she was doing the Early Sat show for cBS way back when.

Gretchen Carlson is hopeless - when she gets angry she gets tongue tied. DWS is a ripe target of for charges of hypocrisy but this was a missed opportunity.

I never thought that there was a loathsome, dissembling Democrat I could dislike more than Barney Frank, and then Debra Wasserman Schultz raised her snake-covered head like some beast out of the sea.

So when its a Republican President the gas prices are his fault—when its a Democrat it isn’t—Sorry, you can’t have it both ways. Anyone can see that the policies of Obama have been a factor in the high prices. From the mis managed Gulf oil spill, to the taking out of coastal drilling, to the rejected pipeline—even his polices toward Iran are a factor.

I doubt it.

He definitely should not be able to win with it. But a dumbed-down, largely-on-the-dole constituency makes it possible.

No domestic energy development

Higher costs for everyone

There’s excellent advice in there, pookie. Just want to say, though...when it comes to opening knots there’s a better way. Do it like an animal does it. Grip the last section of knot firmly (they do it with teeth, but use your fingers) and wiggle it back and forth very fast for a few seconds. Knots loosen up amazingly well this way.

I stopped by the Chevrolet Dealership yesterday for a look at the new Silverado 3500 pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive wanted to sense that new “feel.” The salesman (a black guy wearing an Obama “change” lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its “wonderful” options. The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat. Feeling like messing with him, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck. I explained that if it were an Obama truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.

I had to walk back to the dealership... the guy had no sense of humor.

"...Gretchen Carlson grilled Democratic Nation Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz over high gas prices, and played video of her criticizing President Bush over the same problem."

This is the kind of journalism the lame stream media should be doing, but they in the tank for Obama. I'm sorry I missed Curly Top getting grilled. Kudos for Carlson.

It’s all about the means justifying the ends. Whatever you have to do or say in order to get to the utopian dream is OK. That is what seperates the left from the right. The right stands on principle and morals, the left has none.
