    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said in November that Democrats would enthusiastically run on Obamacare in the mid-term elections and it would be a winning issue, however it appears that Democratic candidates have not gotten the memo and are attempting to distance themselves from Obamacare rather than embrace it. Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said in November, Youre darn right that our candidates are going to run on the advantage that Obamacare will be going into the 2014 election. The choice will be very clear. **SNIP** However, individual candidates who know they have to face the voters in November appear to...

    **SNIP** Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) continued to evade questions about her efforts to block new Iran sanctions legislation in Congress when asked today about the issue during multiple public appearances on Saturday in Florida. Wasserman Schultz fled from a Washington Free Beacon reporter on two separate occasions when asked to explain her stance on new Iran sanction, which the lawmaker is reported to be lobbying against behind closed doors on Capitol Hill.

Whatever the reason the result is the same. On a number of issues of particular interest to the large Jewish population she represents Wasserman Schultz has flat out...

Over the weekend on CNN's State of the Union, Wasserman-Schultz told host Candy Crowley that Obamacare will be a positive force for Democrats to run on in 2014 as millions of Americans continue to lose their health insurance plans. Wasserman-Schultz continued to push the Obama administration talking point that although insurance losses are are not what the President promised, people will be able to get a plan that "they like better" and that "offers more at a cheaper price," which isn't true.

Grayson made his comments during a mock reading of a fake Republican Party agenda in which he suggested conservatives were also gay marriage-bashing gun nuts. At 8:30 a.m., the morning breakout sessions, Grayson said, reading the made-up GOP agenda. Ballroom A: the bigots. Ballroom B: the paranoids. And Ballroom C, the largest group of all: the gullible.

    Successful recall elections Tuesday of two Democratic state senators in Colorado were because of voter suppression, pure and simple, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday. Wasserman Schultz blamed lawsuits filed by opponents of gun control to prevent voters from mailing in ballots, the late announcement of polling locations, and efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win. The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing...

    Yesterday the Obama administration announced through the Treasury Department that the employer mandate in the law requiring businesses with 50 or more employees to provide health insurance is being delayed until 2015 (after the 2014 midterm elections). The employer mandate was originally set to start in 2014 but it seems Democrats are extremely worried about another 2010 slaughter as a result of the legislation. But yesterday in response to Speaker John Boehner calling ObamaCare a train wreck, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz argued that the delay of the mandate means the law is here to stay "for the long haul."...

    Via Mediaite, "balanced approach" is Obama's Orwellian term for selling tax hikes to the public as a condition of spending cuts even though there's nothing remotely balanced about our fiscal problems. Spend 10 seconds looking at the graphs in Yuval Levin's new post at the Corner. That's the reality that the "balanced approach" pretends to address. As Levin said in another post today, “The fiscal trajectory of our welfare state is not sustainable, no matter how much taxes go up.”But okay. The left’s new talking point, pushed by The One himself, is that they absolutely positively won’t negotiate over the...

    Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz might want to consider heading back down to South Florida to defend her congressional seat if shes hoping to get re-elected. Karen Harrington, Wasserman Schultz Republican opponent has just released an internal poll she commissioned that has her well within striking distance of Wasserman Schultz. The Gravis Strategies poll of 385 likely voters in the Democrat-leaning 23rd congressional district in Florida has Harrington a mere 4.5% points behind Wasserman Schultz- within the 5% margin of error. The D+11 congressional district is in a traditional South Florida Democratic stronghold, but Republicans and Independents combined outnumber Democrats.

    Not long after Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz told seniors at Century Village of Boca Raton they could be socked with $6,300 a year in higher Medicare costs under Mitt Romney, Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged the figure is based on an analysis of an outdated plan. But Biden argued its fair for Democrats to keep using the number, anyway. U.S. Rep. Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, was one of the speakers who took the stage before Biden on Friday at the heavily Democratic condo community. We know that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan unapologetically support an extreme budget plan...

    Well, here we are, a little more than a month before the election, and the loud, brash, lying Chair of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, has all but disappeared from public view. Talk about flying below the radar..she's become invisible. Is she on the way out? Will she become the designated "fall-girl" for Obama's loss?

    OMG! These images are beyond weird! Even more bizarre than the singing kids pledging their devotion to Obama at Jeff Zucker's house. Messina looks like someone you would see hanging around a park bench near the playground.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel took time off from the busy job standing idle while an alarming number of shootings plague his city to come and party for the week. Were he to have an R after his name, the media wouldve crucified him. But he doesnt, so let the good times roll. Lilly Ledbetter, self-appointed champion of equal pay for women, took to the stage to extoll the virtues of the Obama administration which pays women in the White House significantly less than male employees. The irony went both unnoticed by the crowd and unmentioned by the media. Nancy...
  • Villaraigosa on God, Jerusalem Vote: I Definitely Heard a 2/3 Majority

    Was Villaraigosa living in an alternate universe at the DNC, too?  When the Democrats held a voice vote to modify the platform, undoing the omission of God and Jerusalem, chaos among the delegates ensued. It was clear to anyone watching that a 2/3 majority was not reached, even after three votes were held. After the first vote the chairman began to say,  “In the opinion of the…” then he realized ‘hey, wait a minute, that wasn’t a majority’ and proceeded to finish his sentence, “let me do that again.” He did. The same thing happened and he just stood there,...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chairwoman and congresswoman from Florida, was at ease this morning among a group of Democrats from deep-blue California. "Let me just tell you how much I appreciate the oasis of Democratic politics that California is," she said at a delegation breakfast on the final day of the Democratic National Convention.

    Wasserman Schultz calls Jerusalem omission from platform 'technical error' By Daniel Strauss - 09/06/12 09:15 AM ET Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) explained the exclusion of language recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital in the 2012 Democratic national platform as a "technical error" that had not been discussed at all during the drafting process. "Essentially, with Jerusalem, it was a technical omission and nothing more than that," Wasserman Schultz said Thursday on CNN. "There was never any discussion or debate commentary over adding or subtracting it." A day earlier, Democrats amended the 2012 party platform to include...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) told the Washington Free Beacon Wednesday evening that she will not be apologizing to Washington Examiner reporter Philip Klein after she falsely accused him of deliberately misquoting her. No, I definitely will not offer Klein an apology, Wasserman Schultz said with a slight laugh as she was exiting an event meant to honor Center For American Progress founder John Podesta. Asked if she had a message for Klein, Wasserman Schultz bristled. I dont, she said. Klein caught Wasserman Schultz in a lie yesterday after she falsely claimed that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren had chastised...
