Skip to comments.CNN Mocks Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Lame Spin on God and Jerusalem Platform Controversy
Posted on 09/05/2012 8:17:06 PM PDT by chessplayer
A major controversy erupted on the floor of the Democratic National Convention Wednesday surrounding God and Jerusalem inside the Party's platform.
Hours later, DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz gave CNN an absolutely ridiculous explanation for what transpired resulting in her being mocked for her "alternate reality" by numerous commentators including Anderson Cooper and John King (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
CNN White House correspondent Brianna Keilar, on the floor of the convention with Wasserman Schultz, asked about the process of changing the platform, the three voice votes, and the discord.
Wasserman Schultz amazingly replied, There wasn't any discord.
Keilar responded that it seemed like people on the floor didnt feel it was a two-thirds vote.
Wasserman Schultz again amazingly replied, It absolutely was two-thirds.
Continuing to press, Keilar noted that this seemed to be a change in policy from yesterday by the Obama campaign because they made it clear Tuesday that they stood by the platform with the controversial language regarding Jerusalem and the word God left out.
No, no, it's not actually, Wasserman Schultz again amazingly replied.
At the end of the interview, the segment switched back to CNNs booth at the convention where Anderson Cooper said, I just got to go to the panel with this. I mean, Debbie Wasserman Schultz said it wasnt a change of language, there was no discord that we saw, and it was a two-thirds vote.
And it was a technical oversight, added David Gergen.
I mean, thats an alternate universe, replied Cooper.
Mr. Praline: Um...now look...now look, mate, I’ve definitely ‘ad enough of this. That parrot is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not ‘alf an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein’ tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz : Well, he’s...he’s, ah...probably pining for the fjords.
Mr. Praline: PININ’ for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got ‘im home?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz: The Norwegian Blue prefers keepin’ on it’s back! Remarkable bird, id’nit, squire? Lovely plumage!
Why don’t they call her what she is-—>LIAR!
She thinks anyone is going to believe that bilge?
Look, we’ve ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.
That’s the bottom line here. Now hurry and get ready because the 2 min. Hate is about to get started.
The discord caused a short lockout!
Time for the ambulance and a 72 hr pysch.
Dentention. Til the DNC is over. Then a nice room next to Jesse Jackson Jr
You mean 2 minutes of non-hate? That’s all they get on a normal day.
These people are amazingly desperate. I don't know who's worse, Wasserman Schultz or Carney. But they're both rank liars.
Very rarely do the inhabitants of an alternate universe see theirs for the unreality it is... a momentary glimpse for Coop, then back to his alternate reality.
If they has 2 hate free min a day they might actually have hope. I posted this on another Debbie thread but I think it applies here to help people understand why Dem/Libs do what they do.
To understand Dem/Libs, one needs to accept the evidence before their eyes and logical reasoning.
First, Morality requires belief in something greater than ones self on which to base it on. Because without that, morality is as changeable as any other personal decision. What is the functional moral difference between deciding to wear blue sox or murder puppies when you can simply say Today murdering puppies is OK?
There is none.
Since Dems answer to no one or nothing greater than their wants, all things are possible and all things are acceptable. I like quoting an Afghan Whigs lyric that sums this mindset up perfectly...A lie? The truth? Which one shall I use?
And once you wrap your head around that, the entire liberal agenda from global warming to chickenhawk homosexuality becomes self evident.
Most people do not want to accept this. They think all people have good in them. But good is a moral reality. And for a person that by definition accepts no morality outside the situational, there can be no good in them.
I was listening to this on XM and couldn’t believe the reaction of the CNN common taters. Even a statement like, “Nothing to see here, move along.”, brought laughs from all of them. Laughing at the DNC Chair is not in the usual CNN playbook. I suppose even CNN types can believe their own lying ears.
We have a room with her name on it in KS..... Osawatomie State Hospital is a psychiatric hospital in Osawatomie, KS
My theory is that we are not basically good, by nature we are selfish and horrible. Thankfully we have parents who want us to behave and a society (in the old days) that expected us to be law abiding etc etc
Civilization rose up when humans were able to quell their sin nature. As long as we fight that dark side, we can keep our civilization.
Lately, it’s looking bleak.
this platform is no more. It has ceased to be.
I didn't know my eyes and ears were so defective. I'm glad DWS cleared that up.
It has brought down the curtain and joined the choir invisible ;^)
The comment closest to the truth in the entire video was that “God and Jerusalem were booed on the floor of the democrat convention.”
