Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “We’ve really begun to turn the economy around”

by editor on August 4, 2011

Have you ever seen a photo of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz that doesn’t look like a mugshot from SmokingGun.com?

No, seriously. Think about it. Maybe do a Google image search and then come back and tell us we’re wrong. We swear every photo of the woman looks like she was just arrested for some heinous crime.

With that in mind, feel free to consider what the Democrats have done to the economy as a crime and consider Wasserman Schultz to be an accomplice.

Here is, perhaps, her dumbest comment ever, which is quite a difficult competition to judge.

“Well, we’re going to focus on what we know is the number one priorities on Americans ease minds right now, that is creating jobs and continuing to get this economy turned around. If we have to drag the Republicans with us, then we’ll do that, but, you know, it’s been a whole lot of months, eight months they have controlled the house with no jobs bills coming to the Floor. Hopefully now with this compromise on the debt ceiling behind us, with the opportunity, with the economic to sit down and focus on longer-term deficit reduction that will have some balance and ask some sacrifice for our most fortunate,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told MSNBC. Schultz is also the Chairwoman of the DNC.



“We’re creating jobs each month in the private sector.” 



Are the American people dumb enough to buy this line of crap?

Noone understands point number one. The government can not create jobs that are a positive to the economy in a free market system. They can hardly do it in a socialist economic setup.

You know when jobs will be created? When the government rescinds all control it has over markets and just let’s them do their thang.

Precisely. Government creates nothing of value. NOTHING is done by government without TAKING from the economy much more than it costs to get the job done.

I’ve said that many times, the government can not create jobs or wealth. Liberals demonstrate their stunning economic illiteracy every single time they run on about government job creation.

“[The government is] creating jobs each month in the private sector.”

Isn’t that an oxymoron???

No, an absolute non-sequiter. The government is not creating jobs in the private sector.

The private sector is creating jobs in the private sector.

Oh. That’s all I came to say.

Once again, DWS proves that she is actually dumber than I thought. The economy is shit. It is going to get even worse. watch the crashing markets globally today through friday-and then tell me if this dumb beyotch shouldn’t be tarred and feathered. I think your answer will be hell to the yes(as barry would say).

“…eight months they have controlled the house with no jobs bills coming to the Floor….”

And two and a half years President Shithead has been fondling unicorn genitals, not to mention your stupid party controlling BOTH houses of Congress for most of that time. And what have they produced? UNEMPLOYMENT! So Debbie, I got a JOBS bill for ya… FIRE OBAMA AND THE EFFING DEMOCRATS (especially yourself.)

What is this “jobs bill” she mentions? A piece of legislation mandating that everyone have a job?

Its the make believe bill that creates jobs for everyone and we all live in the lap of luxury and we only have to do the least to get the most.

The congresswaomn is a full blown NUT JOB. Congressman West has it right.

That would fit in with the healthcare non-fine non-tax fee for failing to buy insurance. The same logic.

I think she’s talking about another stimulus. They’ve put SO many people back to work in the past, and didn’t hardly waste any money at all.

How does this woman get so much air time? Surely her own party asks her to STFU and take a pass on at least a few cameras. Someone didn’t get enough attention from Daddy growing up, Media whore.

Odd, everything I’ve seen on hedge, WSJ, and Forbes are showing this year as another one of the worst years ever for “the rich and powerful.” Interesting. I didn’t know left-leaning newspapers like the WSJ would lie to me!

I don’t know what Oliva has to complain about. Being of the 50% that doesn’t pay taxes the only alternative is to Bitch More.

That’s the plan Olie. Trickle down economics 101. Thumbs up for you hon, you’ve made some sense today, in your own snarky way of course. Stick around and we’ll eventually beat some more of the stupidity out of you.

“Are the American people dumb enough to buy this line of crap?”

Well, we can be reasonably certain that 40% of the people absolutely are, and 40% do not believe one iota of this crap. So what’s really important is whether or not the remaining 20% will buy it.

My guess is that a slight majority of them is dumb enough, though it’s highly unlikely they will buy it from Ms Wasserman.

That seems a tough call. The potential for obamoronics to impress has proven sufficient to fool most of the fence sitters. The flatliner look of her face makes many of them feel a link to her. They don’t hear what she says because it is all just a drone with the daily assigned buzzwords interspersed. Subliminal programming.
