Wasserman-Schultz calls Romney ‘wounded’ and steams about Tea Party

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as Chairperson of the DNC has spent the past few days making strong statements about Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney and the effects of the grassroots movement known as the Tea Party.

While inteviewing Mitt Romney on her show Starting Point,  Soledad O’Brien noted comments made by the DNC Chairwoman. Wasserman Schultz referred to Romney’s performance in New Hampshire, stating that despite his victory in the voting – “…he [Romney] came out of this primary as a wounded candidate…”

 Wasserman Schultz made those sentiments at a ‘Politics and Eggs’ breakfast hosted by both the New Hampshire Institute of Politics and The New England Council.

A few minutes later in that same event the DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz responded to the question “The American People are losing faith in Congress, I think it is because of a lack of civility, What can be done to bring back that civility?” by blaming the effects and actions of the grassroots Tea Party movement for the shootings in Tuscon and the majority of incivility in American Politics today.  Her comments though seemingly hesitant, left no doubt on her opinion of where the fault lies for the questioned ‘incivility’:

“… we need to make sure that we tone things down particularly in light of the Tuscon tragedy of a year ago…the discourse in America has really changed… I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn toward edginess and the lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party Movement…” – Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC Chairwoman – Jan. 11th, 2012

It is well known that the job of the Chairpersons of both the DNC and the RNC is to promote or spin for thier own political Party, but by her statements regarding Former Gov. Romney’s performance and her odious malignment of the Tea Party,  Wasserman Schultz has apparently taken ‘spin’ to mean ‘lie’.   It may be that the DNC Chairwoman just does not have all the facts, and in the interest of education and keeping the record straight, this article will attempt to correct her ’spin’.

Wasserman Schultz has mentioned numerous times that because of his showing in the New Hampshire Republican Primary, Mitt Romney is a ‘wounded candidate’.  Yet Romney’s 39.3% final vote percentage is higher that Barack Obama’s 36.45% final vote, and even higher than Hillary Clinton’s 39.09% final vote during the ‘Live Free or Die’ state’s 2008 Democratic Primary.  It should also be noted that Debbie Wasserman Schultz was a strong supporter of the former First Lady’s candidacy, so perhaps she is just jealous of  Candidate Romney’s numbers.

The comments and presumtions made by the DNC Chairwoman concerning the effects and actions of the Tea Party are significantly more deceptive and vitriolic.  Though Liberal/Progressives  continously refer to the grassroots Tea Party movement as “violent’, ‘extremist’, and ’dangerous’,  the incidence of  verified (not speculated or implied) violence occuring at the THOUSANDS of Tea Party events held nationwide in the past few years is below 20 incidents.  Furthermore, attributing the tragic shooting of Representative Gabrielle Giffords to the grassroots Tea Party movement is irresponsible and malignant.  The shooter in that incident (we will not mention his name here due to the disgust it causes our staff and hopefully our readers) has been thoroughly investigated and has been found to be a mentally unstable, anarchistic, anti-government, and a convicted drug offender, with no ties to any local or nationwide Tea Party organization.  

By contrast, the effects and efforts of the ”Occupy” Movement have been supported byDebbie Wasserman Schultz.  The DNC Chairwoman has stated in an inteview on MSNBC about the ‘Occupy’ protesters, “We understand their frustration, we applaud their activism …”.  The ‘Occupy’ Movement has only been  active worldwide for about 6 months, but has already had hundreds of verified incidents of violence, including several incidents of rape, incidents of sex with a minor, incidents of drug distribution and use,  at least one murder, and one suicide.

The comments of Debbie Wasserman Schultz have not just been disturbing to a great number of Republicans nationwide, it has also gotten attention (and a tirade or two) from some none-too-pleased radio personalities as well.  On Glenn Beck’s network, Radio Hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere had some choice words about the DNC Chairwoman.  Here is the clip from their 4th Hour program (you really should watch this):

We hesitate to say so, but that clip is irreverantly funny…


The criticisms and opinions of Debbie Wasserman Schultz have continued to bounce around the Medias, both online and across the airwaves. She will probably continue to speak out without worry of her position, since she is quite frequently towing the Democrat Party line, and since this election season has failed to produce a viable Republican candidate to run against her in her home Congressional District, CD-20 FL.  It may be though, that out of the very grassroots Tea Party movement she blames, a candidate will stand up to challenge her, saving the ears and the blood-pressure of the majority of Republicans nationwide.

Until then, journalists and bloggers will have to continue to exercise their First Amendment rights, to keep educating and informing Party Chairpeople and citizens alike!
