The remarkable, unfathomable ignorance
of Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Guardian [UK], by Glenn Greenwald

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 10/21/2012 2:17:24 AM

On 29 May 2012, the New York Times published a remarkable 6,000-word story on its front page about what it termed President Obama's "kill list". It detailed the president's personal role in deciding which individuals will end up being targeted for assassination by the CIA based on Obama's secret, unchecked decree that they are "terrorists" and deserve to die. (Snip) But Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Congresswoman from Florida and the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, does not know about any of this. She has never heard of any of it. She has managed to remain

There are none so blind as those who will not see. If a Brit can recognize DWS's ignorance, why can't our msm?

Rats abandoning ship. When (not if) Romney becomes president, the Democratic Party will be in ashes laid at the feet of this colossally stupid woman, Barack Obama, David Axelrod, and all the Chicago thugs that think national politics is the same as protesting in the 'hood.

Intellect is NOT her long suit. She certainly gives every indication of actually being that stupid.

The only explanation for her political existance is the ever present stupid vote. The number of displaced New Yaawk voters in Florida who reflexively pull the Dumbocrat lever may be larger than most think.

Lying has become a huge contagion in left wing politics. Going on shows like on MSNBC allows you to lie at will and not get called on it.So because these people get approval from the dishonest media,they think they get away with it for everybody.

It's funny and sad at the same time that Obama can say PP gives free mammograms and thousands of women call only find out it's just another Obama lie or actually he "misspoke".

The MSM is still working to bury the Benghazi story,despite tons of objective evidence to the contrary.Obviously this is to help Obama make it through the foreign policy debate next week.

The left was very happy at onetime that Romney was the candidate because they thought everybody hated rich people and Mormons as much as they do.Now they're digging up desperate last minute attacks on Bain again.To borrow a word for GW,the left misunderestimated how good Romney was on his feet.

These people who support her are mindless or they are just dyed in the wool liberals who don't see that they are also in Obama's bulls-eye. Where is John Galt?

Let's see...Obama "pores over his terrorist baseball cards" to decide which will be killed next? But on the other hand he can't be bothered to attend half of his security briefings?

Jimmie Carter obsessed over the White House tennis court schedules. I guess neither one of them wanted to do the WORK of President...they preferred BEING president.

Does anyone remember when dumb debbie became famous?
It was during the 2000 florida election mess. Dumb Debbie was a member of the florida legislature, and received alot of attention from the mainstream media meatheads, as she ranted and raved about the recount...
She was nutty then, and is nutty now. The only democrat woman who is nuttier is Stephanie Cutter.

DWS is not ignorant. Well, she is, but that's not what makes her lie. She has no reason to speak the truth. She knows that the Ob@$tard Knee Pad Media will back her up and cover for her.

When is the last time anyone from the 0KPM called her hand? When is the last time anyone from the 0KPM pointed out the lies?

As long as the 0b@$tard Knee Pad Media is in power, and make no mistake, they are in power, she will draw her last breath lying her head off.

Saw Debbie on TV just now. She is too old for the Shirley Temple hair.

She repeated the lie about Iraq. It was GW that gave a time line for US to exit. It had nothing to do with Zippy's decision.

The liberals have taken everything Mitt should say about Zippy and twisted it around. His voters don't know the difference.

DWS is what TiVo was made for. Skip through her lies.

I made the mistake of watching CBS This Morning. I was an 0bama commercial. They delivered their "oh so serious" lines in their best alarming deep voices. They fact-checked Romney but not 0bama. David Corn was a resource. What a pantload. I hope the 0bama campaign reported this as a contribution in kind. There was literally NO balance.

Agreeing with #4, #5 and others who say she is a liar. It was obvious from the beginning of his reign, that 0bama was surrounding himself with yes-men who were willing and eager to lie for him. Not a particularly small group in the Dem party, but a personality that is unsettling to watch. Rahm epitomizes that personality. DWS is just not "good" at it.

Of course she's a liar.
But, she's also got some kind of emotional
and mental problem where she is incapable of ever admitting an error or acknowledging the truth.
Her eyes are very far apart and crossed,
reminiscent of the kid in Deliverance.
She's like a wind up toy that drones on and on in a monotone without
saying anything remotely grounded in reality.
Obama appointed her as chairman of the DNC.
She's ...been... an.... Epic.... Fail.
Lik all things Obama.
Thursday , it was reported that DWS had steered
the DNC to 20 million in debt with
only 4.6 million cash on hand.
Reince Priebus announced that the RNC has 82.6 million cash on hand
and will spend every penny of it
in the next 16 days ,
including the important GOTV.
Way to go Debbie !

#4 - that's the plight of the leftist radicals (with their own media!) in the land comparatively free. They lie, media covers the lies, but we, normal, commonsensical people, get our info on the internet and a little bit on FOX.
Still, the leftist freaks make stupid faces, toothy grins and other wry faces to respond to accusations of untruths.
Unfortunately big chunk of the Americans don't have time and smarts to dig for the info. And I believe one of the most important, if not the most important things, winning repubics need to do, is building new conservative mainstream media.

Until the last few days I had heard very little if anything from DWS for the last month or so. I thought either the admin had told her to make ineffective/counterproductive self scare for awhile, or the media stopped taking her seriously. Or maybe her spiel is so nutty they kept her on the most loyal outlets like MSDNC. Apparently because of the relative paucity of any Obama spokesmen, they had called an all hands on deck for the last couple weeks of this campaign, so even she is back.

She is morally, stupid; but also a propaganda spokesman. She tells the regimes' cliches to the the 'Obamaphone" people... And all who will believe her.
She isn't the brains in the organization. Propaganda isn't believable, that's why it's infuriating to get BS from these commies. Remember, commies like these think they are elite.
In communism, there are the elite, their minions, and ...little people...Nobodies. Chris Stephens had a falling out with this Administration.

Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor,
Dies at 93

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Vampires, nudists, snakes: Nobody

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

Brothers´ app blocks texting

One of the latest tools targeting the growing problem of texting while driving didn´t come out of Apple, Google or Microsoft. It was the brainchild of two Orlando-area entrepreneurs who recently launched a new mobile app called Txt Shield. The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

San Jose, Calif. — A usually busy DMV office in San Jose was closed Friday after a motorist waiting to take a driver´s test crashed her car into the building and caused a gas leak. The driver declined to give her name but told KTVU she was nervous about taking the driver´s license tests because this would have been her third try. Around noon the line started to move but she said she hit the accelerator instead of the brake and rammed a motorcycle rider in front of her. Then, she said she swerved to try to avoid running over the rider and

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
