TRENDING: DNC chair says Republicans rooting for bad economy
Posted by CNN's Kevin Liptak
April 8th, 2012 09:48 AM ET

(CNN) – Republicans looking to defeat President Barack Obama in November’s general election are rooting for the American economy to fail, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said in an interview Sunday.

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said criticism from Republicans on Friday’s worse-than-expected jobs report was reflective of their political motives.

“What's really bothersome to me is that it almost seems like my Republican colleagues in Congress and Mitt Romney are rooting for economic failure,” Wasserman Schultz told CNN chief political correspondent Candy Crowley. “I mean, they've been hyper focused on one job, Barack Obama's, for really the last two years. And we all need to be pulling together to focus on moving the economy forward for the middle class and for working families.”

That's better than 'talking down the economy' - eh? (RATS tried that one back in the day.)

Not true.

I'm rooting for $10 a gallon gasoline by November 6th, too.

Rooting regardless is not the equivalent of the RATS producing a stinking economy through their policies.

The price of diesel is firm at $3.98 down from $3.99 and holding now for three weeks.

It would seem $4.00 will be the plateau at which gas and diesel equalize once again.

Wasserman Schultz woudn’t know a “middle class working family” if it kicked her in the keister

Which may just happen in November

But Lord, she is the gift that just keep on giving, so please let the DNC keep her chained to the dog house

Pointing out the precariousness of the economy is not the same as rooting for a bad economy.

Unless CNN wants to admit it was “rooting for a bad economy” for 12 straight years, through all of Reagan and Bush 41.

You have to laugh out loud at the idiotic blather this DNC trollop continues to dribble out.

"Wish for a bad economy?" Hell, we don't have to wish for anything of the sort -- you and your Marxist taskmasters have already provided that on a silver platter.

Last June, JWS was proudly proclaiming "We own this economy!". Yes, you certainly do.

Democrats never forget.

Wasserman Schultz is repeating the Republican charge that Democrats were rooting for the Iraq war to fail, and that Democrats were "talking down the economy" under Bush.

With the strong, active, tireless participation of the media, they will gin up a “recovery” for November and then install a socialism that will turn us into an African economy forever.

She’s projecting again.

This is the entire democrat strategy. More and more people aren’t buying it Deb.

Democrats are living proof of why the kids are not the ones in charge of the family. The adults have to be, otherwise you get massive spending on frivolous stuff, not enough spending on necessities, and then when the bill comes due they ask mom and dad to pay it, and throw temper tantrums and blame mom and dad for not stopping them from their destructive ideas and that they tried to do their best.

Liberals should never be in power, anywhere. Children do not have the capacity to act like a logical, responsible adult.

Liberals are the people who never were forced or allowed to make the natural transition into responsible, able-bodied adulthood that occurs between 18 and 30. All their “solutions” to problems prove it.

silly woman. president messiah owes his presidency to the bad economy. he was losing (to the cosmically unexciting john mccain, mind you) until the bottom fell out in 2008, and one more thing to blame on george bush (who, oddly enough, wasn’t even on the ballot) fell into his lap.

Rooting? The bad economy is here and has been here for three years. If the Dems were truly wanting to improve it, they could start by slashing freebie programs and quit sending billions of tax dollars to our enemies.

I mean, they've been hyper focused on one job, Barack Obama's, for really the last two years.

Would she go so far as to say, "focused like a laser"? The destruction of the economy has been obama's primary goal for years.

Following up on Rush’s take on “Republicans wanting dirty water and dirty air”, what economy would Republicans be living in if they want a “bad economy”? Would there be a secret economy for Republicans where they could avoid all the negatives of a “bad economy”?

The equivalent Republican, Reince Priebus (RNC Chair), should go on all and every show and claim that “the democrats are lying to the American people about the economy. Things are not getting better because democratic policies are actually making things worse.”

Don't argue with the newsies or others, just repeat this talking point. That is what Washerwomen-Shmutz does.
