DWS attacks Examiner for ‘deliberately’ misquoting her, but here’s the audio
Washington Examiner ^ | 9/4/12 | Philip Klein

Posted on 09/04/2012 8:43:12 PM PDT by M. Thatcher

CHARLOTTE – Earlier this evening, in an appearance on Fox News, Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz accused the Washington Examiner of “deliberately” misquoting her comments claiming that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren stated that Republicans were “dangerous for Israel.”

The Washington Examiner is posting the audio below so that readers can judge for themselves whether Wasserman Schultz was misquoted.

By way of background, on Monday, the Obama campaign’s Jewish outreach arm held a training session at the Democratic National Convention instructing Jewish Democrats on how to convince fellow Jews to vote for Obama by breaking through what she characterized as Republican distortions of President Obama’s record on Israel.

Here’s how I reported on Wasserman Schultz’s statement in my writeup of the event:

As she was wrapping up her remarks, she claimed that, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

The Washington Examiner could find no such public reference by Oren accusing Republicans of being “dangerous” to Israel. The Israeli embassy would not respond to a request for comment. (Update: The Israeli embassy has responded.)

Wasserman Schultz went on to elaborate that Republicans were “undermining Israel’s security by suggesting that the United States and Israel don’t have anything other than a unique and close and special relationship. It undermines Israel’s security to its neighbors in the Arab world and to its enemies. And we need to make sure that the fact that there has never been and will never be daylight between the two parties or the support for Israel that we have in the United States, that that is conveyed to Jewish Americans across this country. That’s our responsibility. It’s the responsibility we’re asking all of you to take on.”

You can read my full post here.

After my report ran, the Israeli embassy put out a statement from Oren in which he said: “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

Tonight, Fox New’s Shepard Smith asked Wasserman Schultz about my story and Oren’s response.

“I didn’t say he said that,” Wasserman Schultz insisted. “And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising they would deliberately misquote me. What I always say is that unfortunately the Republicans have made Israel a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. And Ambassador Oren has said that we can’t ever suggest that there is any daylight between the two parties on Israel because there isn’t. And that that’s harmful to Israel. That’s what I said, and that is accurate.”

Below, find the audio of what she said on Monday, which I’m confident demonstrates that I quoted her accurately in my story. The relevant part starts around the 28-second mark.

After listening to the audio, you can check out the clip above of her on Fox News saying she was “deliberately” misquoted, and judge for yourself.

It’s weird how every time one of the ‘RATS says something goofy, they claim that they were “misquoted” or “taken out of context”. Nope. It’s because they are morons.

I saw her interviewed today by Smith. It was obvious she was lying—her lips were moving.

... instructing Jewish Democrats on how to convince fellow Jews to vote for Obama...with the word "God" now totally removed from the 'rat platform, they can be truly called "Godless Democrats" - I would think no one of any religious affiliation would even consider voting for Obama.....

I’ll admit that I’m not a kid any longer and I do like my cerveza but I do believe I saw or heard Democrats talking about Jews and a final something or other.

That sure sounds like what happened in Germany with the final solution being applied to 6 million innocent people.

She lied twice. First, she lied when she said that the amabassador had said those words, and then she lied when she said she was misquoted. Thier strategy here is to say anything to make Jews believe that BHO is a big supporter of Israel and anyone who suggest otherwise is the real threat to Israel, or in other words, saying that this administration is a threat to Israel, is a threat to Israel.

Most politicians lie. Wasserman Shultz takes lying to a whole different level.

I think there is a psychological pathology when a person lies like her and will not admit it when they are confronted with their own words.

Obama does the same thing.

Not yet.
The Republican campaign needs to make an ad to blast on the networks. These liars continually say what they want, when they want, then deny deny deny.

RATs always lie about everything, especially her. All the proof you need is to know whether or not her lips were moving.

She’s as phony a Jew as Fauxahontis is an Indian, and could truly give a RATs-@$$ about Israel.

I am curious about several things:

1) How could this woman assume there was no chance she'd been recorded?

2) Will anyone in the mainstream media call her on these latest lies?

3) What can she possibly say in her own defense now?

She is meshuganah.

Every time this nitwit opens her mouth, a lie pops out.

Her hairline recedes another inch.

It’s called pathological lying. The person says it, wants it to be true, hears themselves say it, ipso facto it must be true.

Real pathological liars actually believe what they are saying. It starts out as what they wish the truth is and each time they repeat the lie out loud the lie morphs a little more until they honestly believe their own lie. It’s a mental illness. One that many liberals have. I do not say that tritely.

How can you tell if a Democrat is lying?

When their lips are moving.

While trying to lie her way out of this a nervous DWS calls Israeli “Ambassador Orin Hatch” at 1:11 seconds http://washingtonexaminer.com/article/2506980

Schlep doesn’t get it of course.

She said “Ambassador Oren HAS said...”, not “Ambassador Orrin Hatch said...”

At first listen it did sound like “Orrin Hatch.”

The rest is all lies.

Wow.

It is like they think it is still the old days before the internet; the days of CBSNBCABC ruling the airwaves; the days NTY made the news and the rest of the “news” papers ran with their stories; the days before talk radio opened the airwaves to vioces not controlled by the journ-O-list; the days their lies had no countering truth.

The “progressives” are living in the 1970s!
