Then she went Obama and didn’t look back. As a reward, unlike Carolyn Maloney who was crudely stiffed by the Democratic Caucus, her Constituents disrespected, Ms. Wasserman-Shiultz was handsomely rewarded for flipping on HRC with a Leadership position in the Caucus. I recognized what they meant about Women / Leadership / “Not THAT Woman”
Continuing her Obama-like rise in the Party to the Stratosphere, Little Debbie was tapped, today, as the head of “His” Party to replace Tim Kaine. Not riding high on the November disaster and deeply in debt, the D.N.C. of course, turns to a Woman to redd up and put things back in order. The DNC gets no help from the President who is expected to snap his fingers and command the first Billion Dollar (that’s BILLION!) Presidential Election Campaign … for having spent so much money on those losers who bought into Obama Care and couldn’t get re-elected to flesh out the Congressional Majority that was supposed to guarantee Obama’s Presidential Achievement Record.
In a split second, during a conversation with My Congressman, Jason Altmire (PA-4) I understood how the Pelosi leadership manipulates the wanna-be’s…one of whom is Wasserman-Shultz. My Granddaughter, Danielle, lives in Fl-20. She’s Jewish, too, but only 15 and not yet a voter. We’ll monitor the Oddyssey of the Florida Primary and perhaps even plan to stay there next summer to attend the Republican Convention scheduled for Tampa…now you KNOW we’ll have a re-run of the pesky disruption of the Promenade of Primary States by virtue of the Florida Legislature pushing their “Weight” because, … well, because they have the votes!
I’ll be interested in monitoring the plan Wasserman-Shultz / Pelosi hatch to navigate this friendly fire. I’m going through the motions as a Pennsylvania State Democratic Committee Woman as I read the emails from my State Chair suggesting that the Democrats have determined: “That’s Our Story And We’re Sticking With It.” With Wasserman-Shultz in the Chair, it’s a guarantee that the Democrats will spin the Obama performance and beat our ears with how great their accomplishments are and how under-reported is that greatness.
Come On, Summer!!! I can readily justify tuning out these hackers if the message is” “Poor Baby Barak; He’s just not getting the credit he deserves for all he’s done for Americans.”
By the time this campaign is over, Women will be sticking knitting needles through their ears to escape the torture. I wish to be kind to my Granddaughter’s Congresswoman, but in my heart of hearts, while I respect her for grabbing the Opportunity when it knocked, I can’t separate my impression of her with the “sell-out” moniker and I won’t damn her for it. But I won’t be surprised when she’s confronted in November 2012 with the same sort of defeat suffered by Nancy Pelosi. Sadly, the political mentoring she’ll acquire working out of the DNC headquarters, which – last I had heard – had moved to Chicago, will not mesh with the expectations of Women who vote. Sure, she’ll surround herself with the Women of the Left to comfort herself, but she’ll have a tough time of it if she resumes her relationship with Gabrielle Giffords (D) AZ-8 upon her return to service. Giffords was re-elected in her defiant district because she offered a “Level with the Voters” approach to her work of representing them. Giffords’ appeal for funding to defend her district’s border with Mexico was largely ignored by her colleagues in the House….that was before the debacle of November 4, 2010. But the Democrats, and now, it appears, Wasserman-Shultz will be pitching some tough-to-swallow Kool Aid meant to support fund-raising for the President’s re-election. I doubt those once-bitten; twice shy incumbents will be on the Bandwagon when it comes through their Districts. The Democrats who survived 2010 aren’t feeling too sorry for the “likeable but radioactive” Obama. If they are permitted to choose their preference, I’m betting some of them might even be persuaded to go thumbs down as Super Delegates to the Charlotte Convention.
I wish her well, but my instincts tell me Wasserman-Shultz is going to be getting a whole lot of attitude flung at her, and of course, when she doesn’t succeed, it won’t be because she’s a Progressive “Yes!” Gal, it will undoubtedly be due to her not TALKING ENOUGH! These Democrats sound more like Women every day:)
