DWS Lies About GOP, Gets Caught, Lies Again

From Phillip Klein at the Washington Examiner:

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Israeli ambassador called GOP “dangerous for Israel”

Philip Klein | September 4, 2012

CHARLOTTE – Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed on Monday that Israel’s ambassador to the United States has accused Republicans of being “dangerous” to Israel by criticizing President Obama’s record.

The Florida congresswoman made the charge at a training session for Jewish Democrats held by the Obama campaign here at the Democratic National Convention, aimed at teaching Jewish Democrats how to convince their fellow Jews to vote for Obama.

Apparently, she was teaching them how to lie and monger fear.

Much of the session, which featured a string of speakers from the Obama campaign, was devoted to defending Obama’s record on Israel. During her talk, Wasserman Schultz said that Republicans, who “can’t get anywhere with our community on domestic issues” instead “do everything they can to lie and distort and mischaracterize this president’s stellar record on Israel.”

Now that is chutzpah.

As she was wrapping up her remarks, she claimed that, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”

The Washington Examiner could find no such public reference by Oren accusing Republicans of being “dangerous” to Israel…

Attendees to the Monday session were given a handout promoting Obama’s “unwavering commitment to the state of Israel” and another “Myths vs. Facts” handout refuting attacks on his pro-Israel bona fides.

“I know so many of you and so many of my constituents will be sitting at dinner or at the mah jong table in the card room at their condo [sic] and hear one more time that Barack Obama is not a supporter or friend of Israel,” Wasserman Schultz said. “That’s simply not the case. And we want you to be armed with the facts.”

And never mind the stereotyping.

And we have this update from Mr. Klein, via the Washington Examiner:

DWS attacks Examiner for ‘deliberately’ misquoting her, but here’s the audio

Philip Klein | September 4, 2012

After my report [above] ran, the Israeli embassy put out a statement from Oren in which he said: “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.”

Tonight, Fox New’s Shepard Smith asked Wasserman Schultz about my story and Oren’s response. (See clip at the top of this posting.)

“I didn’t say he said that,” Wasserman Schultz insisted. “And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising they would deliberately misquote me.

What I always say is that unfortunately the Republicans have made Israel a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. And Ambassador Oren has said that we can’t ever suggest that there is any daylight between the two parties on Israel because there isn’t. And that that’s harmful to Israel. That’s what I said, and that is accurate.”

Below, find the audio of what she said on Monday, which I’m confident demonstrates that I quoted her accurately in my story. The relevant part starts around the 28-second mark… (See above.)

It’s almost as if Ms. Wasserman Schultz is incapable of telling the truth.

But not only has Ms. Wasserman Schultz been once again caught lying, she has been caught lying about truly important matters. Literally, issues of war and peace. And all for a little political advantage.

Which just goes to show that she really is the perfect spokesperson for the Democrats. In fact, she is the perfect representative of the Democrat Party.

    Did FOX challenge Debbie Wasserman Schultz lies about Israel.

    I keep up with Israel and there are have been only a couple of quips where the Israel’s Prime Minister says U.S. is on their side. Probably because Israel says Obama has treated Israel worse than any other President in U.S. History.

    If the Holocaust were happening under Obama’s watch the U.S. would be doing nothing.

    For then Senator Obama to play hookey from Iraq and fly a black hawk to mingle with Muslims terrorists in Palestine and listen to their woes; he should have been penalized. Senators just can’t renegade and do what they want and on a National breech of security as he did.
