Well yes, she’s an idiot, but is Debby Wasserman Schultz feeling the heat from her Democratic Jewish base?

 

The brains behind the Democrats

The brains behind the Democrats

The Democratic Party Chairman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, goes after Obama for not working his job.

President Obama does his job less often than any commander-in-chief since Grover Cleveland, who held the office in the 19th century.

That’s according to Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was interviewed on MSNBC Wednesday ahead of a Republican-backed measure to sue Obama for overstepping his executive authority, especially in his unilateral actions to implement Obamacare.

But in the interview, Wasserman Schultz, a U.S. congresswoman from Florida, inadvertently agreed with a complaint levied most often by Republicans that Obama has not put much effort into his job.

“I’m going to go to the House floor and actually debate why we shouldn’t be voting for the first time in American history to sue the president of the United States for doing his job, and doing his job actually less often and at a rate that is lower than any other president since Grover Cleveland,” said Wasserman Schultz, while fingering Republicans who she claims “refuse to do anything.”

Assuming that Wasserman wasn’t just running off at her mouth – and she could well have been; she’s the Joe Biden of female Democrats, there must be a reason for her dissing her president. The only reason I can come up with is that Obama’s siding with Hamas over Israel has infuriated the big money donors of the party, and this is her way of reassuring them.

Or something – you figure it out.

    She is referring to the fact that Obama has been issuing executive orders at a rate lower than any president since Cleveland.

    Americans Jews voted 70/30 for Obama last time despite Obama’s obvious sympathy for the enemies of Israel because 70% of American Jews hate Republicans more than they like Israelis. And I doubt if this will change in 2016.

    • Thanks Inagua for clearing that up. But it is still confusing. We have been even handed with Hamas and Israel. Moderate Arab states prefer Israel to Hamas, per the NY Times today and want Hamas destroyed. And Joe Scarborough today, a big supporter of Israel, said he (and others) are getting fed with the indiscriminate killing of people in Gaza by Israel. Hey, I don’t make the news, I am just relaying it. How can we take sides with all this confusion and hatred.
      But the big news is the GOP, aka Stupid Party, can’t pass an immigration bill in the GOP house. That is what D.W. Schultz is talking about. Yes, we know the standard right wing line is to attack Obama about this. Blah, blah.
      Chris, this is another opportunity for you to attack the sainted John Boehner. Can you do it? I know you can!

        “How can we take sides with all this confusion and hatred.”

        Very easily. There is no confusion. The people of Gaza elected a terrorist organization as their government, and that government has built up a supply of rockets and dug tunnels with which to attack Israel. Once Hamas commenced attacks, Israel responded. It should be very easy for the American government to side with the civilized, democratic, western nation and oppose the barbarous terrorist government of Gaza.

        You start your comment with clear facts and opinion. You then drop into the liberal BS attacking differing opinions with nothing but hatred.

        You libs are such haters.

        “And Arab states now supporting Israel against Hamas..??”

        Bob – I think this has to do with the Sunni/Shia rivalry. But we are straying from Chris’s point that Wasserman Shultz might be concerned about her Jewish constituents, which I think is incorrect because Jews are such reliable Democrats. This was a rare double miss by Chris — he didn’t know what Wasserman Shultz was referring to, and he incorrectly speculated that American Jews might in significant numbers ever become disillusioned with Obama, Kerry, Hilary or the Democratic Party.

        • You are probably correct, but can you see many Jews supporting Ted Cruz or Marco (I was for immigration reform before I was against it) Rubio? Doubtful. Refer to the NY Times about the Arab states. And can you see Jews supporting John Boehner???

        • (Actually, I was being deliberately obtuse, but never mind – I still hope that the American Jewish base will reconsider its blind allegiance to this man).

        • Libertarian Advocate

          It probably has more to do with the fact that Hamas is a radicalized movement that wants to overthrow all Muslim leaders who cooperate in ANY way with the various Satans of the West and the East.

        John Boner is a collaborator with a traitorous president and a cry baby asshole. Why do we need an immigration bill? There are already laws on the books: if you’re illegal you get sent home. This is the Hegelian dialectic on steroids — problem, reaction, solution. Why do we need tens of millions of unskilled workers, whom we have to house, feed and give medical care to, all at taxpayer expense: benefits not even available to citizens? What is it that you think legalizing all these people will solve? It will only invite more of the same on an even more massive scale and displace even more American workers who need jobs.

          The objective of course is to create a permanent dependency class loyal to the Demoncrat Party with an eye to keep the Executive Branch in the hands of the Demons indefinitely. Why would Boehner want that, unless he’s really a Demon?

        • CatoRenasci

          LA: the point is that the primary difference between Boehner and Obama is that Boehner favors big government controlled by Rethuglicans and Obama favors even bigger government controlled by Demoncrats. Both would love a dependency class they can keep loyal to themselves.

      That is a true statistic, and one that always baffles me. I just don’t get the Jews support of Obama. Barry and Lurch have shown Israel total DISDAIN in this latest conflict. As had Hillary. Their support of the Democratic agenda is mind boggling.

      • CatoRenasci

        Self-hating Jews? Naivete? Commitment to socialism greater than commitment to Zionism, now that the Zionists aren’t all socialists? Denial (just love that Egyptian river….)?

      Really Inagua? It’s not the rate of executive orders that is upsetting the citizens. Rather the fact he is circumventing congress on MAJOR issues.

      • Inagua

        Of course the rate of executive orders is a meaningless statistic, but it was the best Wasserman Shultz could come up with. I give her credit for creativity, and I give Chris a demerit for missing the point of her comment.

    I think putting religious labels on voting blocks in this country is meaningless. I am a Roman Catholic and so is Nancy Pelosi, The Kennedy clan and the Cuomo’s. I admit that I wobble at times from the faith and have issues with the Church, however the gang of three noted above are not Catholics in any way, shape of form. This applies to the Jewish “faith” in this country, in many cases a label only and not really indicative of the those who faithfully follow the religion.

    A lot of folks didn’t get the joke of the post.

    • I think you and I are the only ones that did. Oh well, I toss a lot of stuff up there, and it’s hit or miss. This was a miss.
      Onward.

      • AJ

        Onward? Don’t you mean forward, comrade?

        In the market place this situation would be considered price discovery, in the blogosphere it is called misreading your audience. The discovery here I would posit is that a “lotta folks” are not amused by what is going on.
