Republicans see Wasserman Schultz's seat as plum target
By Erika Bolstad
Posted on Thursday, 08.09.12

There's a wide field of Republicans hoping to unseat U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also serves as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but so far, the candidates have spent more time bashing each other than the incumbent.

“We've clearly got a spirited primary on our hands here,” Richard DeNapoli, chairman of the Republican Party of Broward County, told a crowd earlier this summer when four of the candidates appeared in a debate.

“Republicans see Wasserman Schultz’s seat as plum target,..”

Ummm, no. Perhaps they could reword the headline.

I don’t know about plum, but it is a huge target. Seriously, I would be so happy if she were defeated. She is awful.

One really REALLY good thing about being transferred down here is to get the pleasure of voting against this nit.

This is a 60 plus dem district in a republican wave election. Not one dime should be wasted there.

Not unlike the case for Bwarney Fwank’s seat.

Yes, she is nearly as irrational as Pelosi! (They used to take people like that for treatment in the hope medical science could help restore their sanity...)

Our household is agreed Ozzie DeFaria should not be the candidate to run against Debbie Blabbermouth. Ozzie has been running a bit of a nasty campaign. The one forum I was able to attend he went way over his time and was a bit rude.

We do like Karen Harrington, she did something like 35% against her last time. Questions about Karen on social issues abound...photos of celebrating with two homosexual men at some sort of ceremony have surfaced. She does have the backing of many conservatives, though, on her small business and repeal Obamugabe care stands. Word is she switched from D to R for the 2010 election.

Joe Kauffman is a lifelong Republican with a lot of passion. He apparently is an expert on terrorism.

Gina Bresso is a policy wonk/lawyer who really didn’t grow up in South Florida. She moved back here for a political future. Dubya appointed her to an elections commission for the feds. Before that she was a lawyer for a House committee. She looks a little like Michelle Bachman, she is young, and may have a future...she won’t win this time around.

There is a young hispanic fellow, last name Garcia, but I don’t think he has gained much traction.

Despite some questions, Karen will probably get our vote. Joe has passion, and may get at least one vote from us.

It would be most ironic if the DNC’s “nothing important to say” big mouth loses her Seat. Then, she can continue her role as the useless mouth piece for the “party of tolerance”, and do no harm.

unseat U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz,

This would be a wise move. The woman is a raving lunatic.

Sounds like the GOP presidential primaries. We truly are The Stupid Party. You guys have such a target-rich environment. Just bash away at that.

Citizens and voters in Florida, you have a golden opportunity to shine across the nation, come next Tuesday, August 14th, Primary Day. Every registered Republican across the state should come out and vote, just as the GOP voters did in Texas and Missouri over the past few weeks. Want to beat Debbie, the Obama nutcase, turn out in her district and choose your candidate to beat her in November!!! A massive GOP turnout across the state, will send the message to the Obamabots that Florida is going with the “Solid South” for Romney/Ryan, come November 6, 2012, and.....Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be defeated!!! TURN OUT IN MASSIVE NUMBERS!!!

When the Republicans take Wasser-Putz’s seat, they had better disinfect it for weeks. Her stench is well embedded in the wood.

In fact, burn it and get a new one just to be safe.

She gives bed lice a good name.

I wouldn’t touch that line about “her seat” with a ten foot pole, a 6 ft Czech, or a 5 ft. Burmese.
