Skip to comments.CNN Host Grills Wasserman Schultz About Thinking Christie’s Hiding Something While Obama Always
Posted on 01/09/2014 12:42:39 PM PST by smoothsailing
CNN host Don Lemon grilled Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on how its OK to assume Chris Christie is hiding something while assuming that President Obama is always forthcoming.
Wasserman Schultz was eager to spread the message that the New Jersey governor had committed wrongdoing, a news drop that conveniently steered attention away from former Defense Secretary Robert Gates revelations a day earlier about Hillary Clinton.
I think the investigation that is ongoing is going to through the questioning, particularly tomorrow when the assembly asks the right people under oath questions about exactly what happened and who and where these instructions came from to shut down three lanes of highway on the George Washington Bridge that not just not only snarled traffic but actually slowed down first responders from looking for a 4-year-old, Wasserman Schultz said.
There are so many questions that need to be answered that Chris Christie has refused to answer thus far and today those e-mails revealed that there is smoke and that smoke leads right to the closest staff that he has in his office. If hes such a straight shooter, which he prides himself on, Don, why did it take seven hours for him to release a statement for him saying he was outraged and had no knowledge of it? I can tell you if I knew nothing about something and had no knowledge, I would immediately release a statement. That doesnt take a lot of hand wringing to release a statement like that.
Lemon asked Wasserman Schultz about the controversies faced by Obama over the past year. Each time the president has claimed that he didnt know. He didnt know about the NSA spying on allies. He didnt know that about the Obamacare website. He didnt know that if you that you wouldnt be able to keep your doctor so whats the difference between Christie not knowing and the president not knowing?
The difference is the issues that President Obama said he didnt know about were policy issues. This is a scandal. A scandal that leads right to his office in which his staff and possibly him exacted political retribution in retaliation for a Democratic mayor in Fort Lee refusing to endorse him in his re- election. As a result they ordered the shutdown of three lanes of the George Washington Bridge on the first day of school, snarling traffic, trapping children in school buses, Wasserman Schultz responded.
Lemon pointed out that Obama calls everything made-up scandals, so why couldnt Christies involvement be overblown, too?
How could we compare a governor and his staff potentially deliberately shutting down three lanes of highway in retaliation, which these e-mails that came out today show that it was in response to a mayor refusing to endorse their boss for his re- election? How you could compare that to health care policy, intelligence policy and foreign policy? Wasserman Schultz shot back. Now of those three things were scandals. They are not comparable. Chris Christie has to face the music. He has refused to answer questions for months. He has said from the beginning that he had nothing to do with this and knew nothing about it and that it didnt have anything to do with anyone at his office and it turns out none of that is true.
Lemon then asked about her political motivation in stoking the Christie scandal. Clinton beats all opponents except for Christie. Im talking about Hillary Clinton, he said. If we were looking forward to 2016, it shows that Christie beats her by 2 points, 48 percent to 46 percent.
Chris Christie is the governor of the state of New Jersey and the head of the National Governors Association. His job this year, he said himself about a month ago, that his sole responsibility right now is to re-elect and elect Republican governors. So the guy who is in charge of electing and re-electing Republican governors has created a culture in his office at the very least that allowed his senior staff to think that it was OK to exact political retribution that impacted his constituents, Wasserman Schultz responded.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a liberal pathological liar for her boss.
Chris Christie(D) isn’t that much different.
But it’s pretty hard to top DWS.
I wonder what her comments were regarding Lois Lerner.........
This kind of crap with the lame stream media and Democrats could wind up backfiring on them. This type of thing will bring more people to Christie’s side in the long run.
I smell a dead useful idiot. Debbie’s public barking along with the rest of the DNC kennel simply tells me Christie’s usefulness is at an end. They’re going to need a bigger floor jack under that bus. Let that be a lesson to all RINOs.
Obama and Wasserman Schultz couldn’t tell the truth even if the truth bit em in the backside.
I’m surprised Debbie Wasserman-Schultz-Clinton-Obama-Kennedy-Clinton-Schultz didn’t have him fired on the spot.
“I want this man’s name! I demand this man’s name! I want him investigated...NOW!!!”
. . . cute as a little bug
I am jaded by Obama, Chicago scandals, Hillary, etc., etc., so here goes...
On Christie: He looked like a dear in headlights.
Which is it; was Christie thinking, “ I’m innocent, but do the folks believe me? Or, was he thinking, “ I’m guilty, but are the folks buying this “innocent” thing I’m selling?”
I don’t know, yet.
The liberal media couldn’t get enough of him when he had his hug fest with Obama over Hurricane Sandy. Now that he’s a serious choice to take on their darling Hillary, they’re writing his political obituary.
A three-year old could spot the hypocrisy here.
That is very good.
“How you could compare that to health care policy, intelligence policy and foreign policy?
Well...considering that Obama’s perfidy in those areas is MUCH more damaging....
If she doesn't release a statement every morning when she wakes up, she's a liar.
She should probably release hourly announcements.
A recent thread was talking about how Florida is about to surpass New York as the second most populous state in the union. But like us poor folks in California who have already endured the “migration” of Secular “Progressive” Jews to our state from New York for a generation or more, I pointed out that Florida is in the same sad straits.
Born: September 27, 1966 (age 47), New York City, NY
A Lot of you refer to this “migration” as “Californication,” but I submit to you that the original “genisis” of this “human effluent,” is New York, and more specifically the area around NYC. And just like here in CA, these “transplants” will team up with the “Hispanic community” and destroy your state too. And the really sad, and funny part of it is that they will conspire to screw the Blacks.
Actually saw a brief interview with her last night. Almost had a stroke when she said that the NSA, tax audits, and Benghazi were nothing-this Chris Christie thing, THIS is important. She really said it, and with a totally straight face.
I think Lemon is auditioning for an anchor slot at Fox News..he actually poses relevant questions to Democratic shills. Not a bad idea, considering CNN’s ratings...
That's her most famous face of all!
This reminds me of a racist-by-today's-standards joke in the 1935 movie Charlie Chan In Egypt:
Snowshoes (played by Stephen Fetchit): I's always in the dark.
Chan: Condition obvious!
In the meantime the current person who squats in the peoples house knows nothing about anything unless it will benefit himself.
He will not accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong or lies about what he said or does.
Benghazi - 4 dead, F & F - unknown dead...no scandals here, just policy issues.
HA! I remember that scene. It was funny!
Thats the smell of the SoulGlo in Debbie’s hair.
