DEMOCRAT Debbie Wasserman Schultz was in Milwaukee yesterday, disgracing herself and her political party.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, via FOX News:
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz ripped into Republican Gov. Scott Walker's record Wednesday during a round-table discussion on women's issues at the Milwaukee Athletic Club.Appropriately, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch expressed her disgust at Wasserman Schultz.
The Florida congresswoman said: "Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand. I know that is stark. I know that is direct. I know that is reality."
Wasserman Schultz added: "What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back. It is not going to happen on our watch."
Republican Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch said she was "shocked" that Wasserman Schultz used domestic violence language to discuss political disagreements.This is absolutely disgusting, and totally expected from the likes of Wasserman Schultz.
"I think the remarks were absolutely hideous and the motive behind them was despicable," Kleefisch said.
Kleefisch called on Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke to "denounce these outrageous statements" made by the DNC leader.
Stephanie Wilson, Burke's press secretary, suggested in a statement that Wasserman Schultz's comments went too far.
"That's not the type of language that Mary Burke would use, or has used, to point out the clear differences in this contest," Wilson said.
Wilson added, "There is plenty that she and Governor Walker disagree on — but those disagreements can and should be pointed out respectfully."
This is how the Democrats roll now.
Mary Burke should contact local TV stations and voice her personal dismay regarding the remarks of Wasserman Schultz. She should state unequivocally that she denounces Wasserman Schultz.
Using the imagery of domestic violence to describe Gov. Scott Walker is completely out of line. Wasserman Schultz managed to hurt the victims of abuse while making a fool of herself.
This sort of rhetoric is inexcusable.
Burke should grow a spine and speak out against this sort of despicable behavior.
"Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand.... What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back."
Oh, my God!
Wasserman Schultz seems to be channeling Graeme Zielinski - spewing really, really ugly stuff.
Wisconsinites should resoundingly reject Mary Burke and the Democrats on November 4th.
Here's video, from FOX6 News, of Wasserman Schultz delivering her vile remarks:
At least FOX6 dubbed the statement "controversial."
TMJ4 used this pathetic graphic for Tom Murray's report on its 10:00PM newscast:
The comments are definitely controversial. That question mark is a joke, like TMJ4.
TMJ4 decided to highlight Gwen Moore and her belief that what Wasserman Schultz said was courageous.
The Walker campaign responded appropriately.
