DNC Chair Calls RNC ‘Crass’ For Partying in Face of Hurricane Isaac

DNC Chair Calls RNC ‘Crass’ For Partying in Face of Hurricane Isaac

TAMPA, Fla.— Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz spoke out today against the Republican National Convention’s handling of Hurricane Isaac, which is causing havoc along the Gulf Coast. Wasserman Schultz said the RNC “could have taken things down a notch,” during their speeches.

“I think it probably was an example of their continued focus of winning at all costs,” Wasserman Schultz said.

While Wasserman Schultz said she gave the RNC credit for cancelling the first day to put safety first, she noted the parties of special interest groups still went on.

“The bashes were not cancelled [and] went on despite the fact that our state was getting hit with a hurricane and Tampa was still in the path of the storm,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Wasserman said even though the RNC was in a challenging situation of having a convention during a devastating storm, there are “other ways they could have handled it other than the path, the way they chose.”

When asked what she thought the RNC should have done, Wasserman Schultz told ABC News that the Republicans could have toned down their program, “certainly in the face of millions getting battered by a storm, they could have been less crass and been a little bit more muted.”

The DNC is crass for applauding Obama spending 5.3 Trillion dollars of our children/grandchildrens so he can look good.

And what about 4 years of Democrat partying while 10% of this nation can’t find work?

Is that crass too?

I went drinking last night (in NE Illinois). I suppose that I am “crass.” I really need to keep a closer eye on natural disasters, everywhere.

In other words, "They should have shut up with all those brilliantly-articulated viewpoints that we can't possibly counter in a million years no matter how many 'fact checkers' we slip some cash to."

I've never seen them this desperate. They're truly hysterical.

Is far as I am concerned, Isaac fizzled. I know there was some flooding, but we’ve had flooding in all parts of the country. In the Pacific Northwest, heavy rains happen all the time.

There's only one reason anyone would support these jerks, and that is they provide a means to get at our money.

Whenever I hear someone complaining that the republicans not 'reaching out' to this or that constituency what I understand them to mean is 'why do you make us associate with these idiots? Can't we just get our taxpayer subsidies from you?"

the media was really hoping this would have been a cat 5 and that is the sick part of all of this.

They would rather see people lose their homes, and lives so they can get ratings and not cover the convention.

My wife hardly ever watches the news and she saw a woman on CNN and my wife said the woman looks like she is about to freak out, she looks to pissed off.

These media turds are s pissed off that they had to cover this convention and had to be around some republicans, I mean a different opinion for them is a bad thing and cannot be tolerated

Yeah, well Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz, I think it’s crass that Obama campaigns and fundraises while black people are drowning from this storm.

Get over yourself, you lying SOS.

Sorry - she just really plucks every last one of my nerves.

Hey...Ms. Blabbermouth Schlitz...listen up! The RNC planned this convention long, long before you planned your puny little rainstorm. No pre-emption opportunity for you! Too bad, so sad!

So the 'rats will "tone down" their program next week when whatever disaster happens somewhere else in the world, happens?

Meanwhile, wasn't Zero off at fundraisers while the hurricane was unfolding? And isn't he the "man in charge"?

It must be exhausting being a Bolshevik. I.e., being always right, absolutely right about everything, even when you contradict yourself, finding fifty things the Democrats are right about and the Republicans are wrong about, every single day.

I heard ABC News this evening play a clip from DWS calling Ryan a liar. ABC reported it withoutout any attempt whatsoever to question the accuracy of her accusations. ABC is totally corrupt, just like the rest of the MSM.

I am going to enjoy their hysterics over the next couple of months.

For the first time in three and a half years I’m actually getting quite cheerful about politics. I still can’t listen to the O and his monotone buffoonery. But the more unhinged his minions are, the more I smile.

The Debbie Wasserman Shultz Dictionary:

CRASS: Having the RNC Convention go on during a hurricane.

COWARDLY: Cancelling the RNC Convention because of a hurricane.

INDECISIVE: Delaying the RNC Convention because of a hurricane.

That's REAL compassion, Dimmie!

I understand that Sandra Fluke and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz crashed the Republican National Convention. They should have been escorted off the property by security and arrested for trespass if they refused to leave.

On the contrary, the best way to deal with these two is to pay them no attention.

Better, present them with two cases of condoms to take back to the Democrat National Convention. I know Fluke would be relieved that her birth control spending was significantly reduced. As for DWS, I'm not certain if she can recognize a condom much less figure out what to do with it.

What’s Debbie Blabbermouth Shultz have to say about that?
