What planet does Wasserman-Schultz live on?

Does she even listen to herself? This from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on MSNBC's Morning Joe (emphasis mine):

"Well, the Republicans who think the Recovery Act (stimulus) didn't work are simply wrong. The Recovery Act, as of the beginning of this year, created an additional 3.6 million jobs. We have -- the Recovery Act had a direct impact on making sure the teachers, firefighters, police officers were able to remain in their jobs. It begun -- it helped begin to turn the economy around. 50% of it was tax breaks to small businesses and to the middle class. So every economist you would talk to that is worth their salt acknowledges that without the Recovery Act we would not be continuing on the upswing.

3.6 million jobs? Where? Oh, there it is teachers, firefighter and police. And what do all of these jobs have in common? Right, public sector jobs. Which by the way are NOT the responsibility of the Federal Government rather they are the responsibility of state and local governments? So she is arguing that the Orwellian named Recovery Act simply bailed out the unbelievably mismanaged local governments. Wow money well spent. And if said local governments don't right their fiscal ship (like Governor Walker did in Wisconsin) I suppose the taxpayers will simply bail them out again? Madness!

I also love her "it helped to turn the economy around" bit. Really, last month there were exactly zero jobs added, consumer confidence hasn't seen its current level since - well, since Obama took office. Wow what a turnaround Debbie!

Message from the DNC Chair: Don't believe you lying eyes.


  1. Don't forget, she said the Democrats now OWN the economy. Guess that lets George Bush off the hook.

  2. she proablly forgot to blame Bush, i'm sure she will correct this in the future out of touch speech.


I will leave it up to those leaving comments to moderate themselves. Keep in mind that this site is PG and comments should reflect this.
