DNC chair says Romney's support eroding despite N.H. win

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, just released a statement in which she argues that despite Mitt Romney's sizable margin of victory in New Hampshire, the candidate failed to meet expectations.

Here's the statement:

"Mitt Romney may have won in New Hampshire tonight, but he can't run from the fact that his support was rapidly eroding before any vote was even cast. Over the course of the last few months Romney had the support of as much as 45 percent of the primary electorate -- at one point boasting a nearly 30 percent lead over the rest of the GOP field. But tonight he fell far short of meeting expectations -- especially in a state where he’s a part-time resident, which is next door to his home state of Massachusetts, in the same media market. He fell short next to a state where he raised a family and served as governor, and where he’s been running on and off for political office over nearly two decades and for president for seven years.

If conservatives teamed up with the DNC to defeat Romney it would make for an absolutely perfect analogy to the U.S. teaming up with the Soviets to defeat the Nazis in WW2.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think she was a Republican plant in the DNC operation designed to make democrats look dumber every time she opens the old claptrap. Debbie Whatsherface-Shitferbrains is the Kosher version of Sheila Jackson Lee.

She’s an idiot. Heaven knows what the Dems chose her to be their mouthpiece. She’s lousy at it.

That’s OK-as long as Romney has Meghan McCains’ endorsement.

The DNC chair thing, named after a syphilis test, released a statement ... the statement was said to be very relieved to have been released from Dimwit Debbie’s craw.

Wasserman Schultz’s brain is also eroding. It’s gotta be tough being dumb, a Dem AND homely.
