DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz Getting Booted
The Shark Tank ^ | June 24, 2012 | Javier Manjarres

Posted on 06/25/2012 10:56:54 AM PDT by Kaslin

Back in April, the Shark Tank floated the likelihood that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman (DNC) Debbie Wasserman Schultz was perhaps on her way out as DNC Chairwoman. We now have learned that Wasserman Schultz will not be back as DNC Chairwoman after the November elections.

According to our source within the Democratic Party, who is also a close associate of Wasserman Schultz, the arrangements have already been made for her to leave DNC regardless if President Obama wins re-election or not.

This same source believes that Wasserman Schultz will be forced to resign behind closed doors and then stage an press event in which she tells Americans that her job as the DNC chair was a temporary one and that she is moving on with her congressional career.

The National Journal has also picked up on the fact that she is indeed getting the boot from Obama-

When Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was tapped last year to lead the Democratic National Committee, it seemed like the latest ascension for a fast-rising star destined for even higher positions. Some stumbles and an apparent falling out of favor with the White House had changed that calculus. Now it looks like it could be changing again. -National Journal

In the same National Journal article it also states that Wasserman Schultz could eventually wind up as Speaker of the House were the Democrats ever to regain control and if former Speaker Pelosi were not to seek the position again. The Shark Tank first joked about this possibility back on May 3rd when several members of Congress and their staffers divulged that there were whispers coming out from the Democrat side of the aisle pertaining to this.

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi could very well regain the helm as Speaker of the House. But what about the possibility of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz becoming the next Speaker? -(Source-DWS or Pelosi, The Next Probable Speaker of the U.S. House)

But Obama’s reelection chances are hanging by a thread and Wasserman Schultz’s polarizing demeanor has turned into more of a liability for the President than an asset.

Wasserman Schultz was recently cancelled from speaking about U.S.-Israeli relations at the Temple Israel Synagogue in North Miami after the backlash she and the Temple received for shunning the founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Mr. Stanley Tate. Tate, who coincidentally endorsed Wasserman Schultz’s Republican opponent, Karen Harrington, was going to address the congregation after Wasserman Schultz spoke, but Temple officials squashed Tate’s plans. (Source-Temple Israel)

The controversy dragged on for a long week, as the Temple was temporarily forced to shut down their phones due to the amount of angry phone calls they received about the controversial speaking engagement. One interesting point about the incident is that Temple Israel’s President Ben Kuehne, who was at the center of this controversy did not run for reelection to the post. Temple Israel will be installing a newly elected President next month. Tate, who subsequently resigned from the Temple said that he is “not going back until the Rabbi is gone.”

The problem here for ‘DWS’ is that she lobbied the President to pick her as the DNC Chair on then notion that he needed her to shore up his flagging Jewish support. This bad week of press for Wasserman Schultz coupled with the now infamous ‘Jew bag-gate’ Facebook incident could very well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for Democrat power brokers within the Obama Administration.

Back in May our source told the Shark Tank that the relationship between DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz and the Obama Administration was fractured and that the President “does not want her in the DNC anymore”-

It seems as if the relationship has soured to the point that according to the source, “He does not want her in the DNC anymore.”

Apparently, President Obama had discussions with the DNC Chairwoman regarding her approach, even telling her, “Don’t forget you work for me.”

It’s not about you, its about me. – attributed to President Barack Obama to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as per our source

The problem that the President has is this- he can’t fire her, at least at this juncture. If President Obama were to remove Wasserman Schultz from her post he would be weakening his own position, as it would be very hard to find someone that is both in lock-step with his agenda and willing to run cover for him as she has done.

Second, this would be a clear indication to the public that there are real problems within the hierarchy of the Democratic Party.

It’s no secret that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is one of the most polarizing politicians in the country. Wasserman Schultz is also a member of Congress who represents the 20thcongressional district in Florida.(Source-Obama to DWS,”Don’t Forget, You Work For Me) (Fox News)

Beyond the slick salesman leading the parade, look at the rest of them: Pelosi, Reid, Biden, Wasserman.... the list is endless.

It’s hard to imagine a more ridiculous bunch of clowns. Yet they get elected and reelected.

You had Howard Dean, then Wasserman Schultz, wonder *what* they're going to dredge up with next?
They're going to play hell out doing those two.
Maybe Maxine Waters if she's not in the clink.

The boot heard around the world....

Debbie is one of those gifts that just keep on giving. With a record of gaffes rivaling that of Joe Biden, and with poorer prognistication skills than Howard Dean, she has pushed the envelope on the elevation of incompetence as the standard by which Democrats are to be judged.

I am going to be as sorry to see her gone, as when Robert Gibbs left. “Spokesperson” is not her best trait, which is not to say she has a lot else going for herself.

In the words of president Obama, (Maybe) “she doesn’t go down all the way.”

Into the required depths of the socialist supporting role, that is.

I think their is a sub-text here everyone is missing.

DWS was brought about to shore up the Jewish Vote for Obama, especially in FLA and she has failed miserably IMHO, but they won't replace her...

So who would they replace her with if they could or did? Stabenow? Levin, Schumer, Boxer, Fienstein? My guess is they don't want it, have high internal negatives, or in the case of Dangerous Deb, have enough on their plate, i.e. she could loose her seat.

Or...., have things gotten so bad with the Jewish vote with Obama that for all intensive purposes he has given up on it?

That is the question I would like answered...

IIRC I read some months ago that even Obama never wanted her in that position, but was resigned (forced) to accept her. Pretty bad when the Occupier in chief doesn’t want you to occupy a position...and then, you get thrown under the bus months later. Only thing good is that she has been publicly embarrassed by the dismissal.

Your picture reminded me of an old Luis Tiant commercial.

Those of us who lived in southern New England got to see both Yankee and Red Sox broadcasts. Luis Tiant, a better pitcher on the Red Sox staff, pitched Fenway Franks on TV, with the tagline “It takes a lot of control to get them to the plate.”

After Tiant left Fenway and joined up with the Yankees, there he was, wearing his new Yankees uniform while preparing Yankee Franks for his family. The new tag line, delivered only as El Tiante could deliver it: “Eeets great to be with a weener.” The double meaning was that the Yankees were a winning club at the time, but the way he pronounced it, it also sounded like wiener, the food he was preparing.

That ad stayed in my mind all of these years, and the photo you posted reminded me of it. New York is the home of a great many weeners, it seems.

What, and Nancy Pelosi wasn't "polarizing"? What's wrong with this picture?

Red Nancy's in-your-face partisan b.s. and party-line votes (remember the Gavel Walk right through the middle of the Tea Partiers?) were okay when she was Speaker, but Debbie Whatsherface-Schultz is "polarizing"?

There's a piece missing here, and I suspect it's spelt "J-E-W-I-S-H". Never mind that that is "theoretically" why she was appointed.
