Today’s quotes come fromDebbie Wasserman Schultz in a FOXNews interview. She is doing women’s equality no favors with her stream of vapid statements…and the DNC is doing itself no favors by putting her in a position of authority. So this woman continues to beat a partisan line, as is her job…but judging from the fact that she might cause someone to go into seizures by the number of times she blinks per millisecond you have to wonder if she can take her own lies seriously. She tries to say that Iowa is good for Obama and bad for Romney. She states that “We used last night and the months leading up to last night as a test run for building what will be the most significant, effective grass-roots presidential campaign in history.” Yes, for the incumbent to need to a grass roots campaign is actually a problem…he should have that already in place. Being the incumbent he shouldn’t need a grass roots campaign, you should have the establishment on your side. All of her talk about how much they’re doing already suggests they’re worried. Also she avoids how much money they’ve already put into hitting Romney…yeah that’s confidence. But my favorite idiotic statement has to be when confronted with a Rasmussen poll that shows Romney beating Obama.
“I haven’t seen that poll. Every recent poll that I’m familiar with shows that head to head President Obama beats any of the Republicans in the field.”
I checked, the following polls in the last two months that show that Romney would beat Obama:
Took me 30 seconds to find…given that her job is heavily PR, you would think that she or someone on her staff would keep abreast of these things.
So the head of the DNC is either not familiar with 5 major poll sources (including PPP which is funded by the DNC) or she’s lying to cover how worried they are. The problem is that lying or being stupid isn’t going to win the moderates. You know what might have been smart, pointing out that the Rasmussen poll right before this showed Obama winning by a couple of points and chalk it up to fluctuations. But no, she would rather deny reality and act as if the poll quoted doesn’t exist. Huh? Debbie, denial is not the sign of a strong campaign.
Oh…and all the others show Obama in the margin of error…an incumbent should be worried about something like that.
But also for fun is, if you can make it through the entire video, when at the very end the interviewer points out that:
“Our research shows Mitt Romney created 150,000 jobs when he was in that position.”
Wasserman replies with,
“There is no one who has backed that up with actual facts.”
At this point watch the interviewer’s face. She’s is utterly taken aback that she quoted, facts the FOXNews verified…but Wasserman-Schultz just wants to deny them because they’re inconvenient. But at least the interviewer is able to come back from the shock and state: “Allright well…we did.”
