Obama Keeps Wasserman Schulz As DNC Chair

From The Hill:

Four more years for DNC chief

By Cameron Joseph and Daniel Strauss | December 3, 2012

President Obama’s decision to keep Debbie Wasserman Schultz as party chief will have her at the Democratic helm through the midterm election — a time when the president’s party often loses seats.

Obama on Monday asked the party to reelect the Florida congresswoman as Democratic National Committee chairwoman — making her selection a mere formality and displaying confidence in the woman who helped him win reelection and the party pick up House and Senate seats.

And never mind her record in the 2010 midterms, when the Democrats lost an historic 700 offices nationwide.

Now Wasserman Schultz will seek to replicate Democrats’ 2012 winning formula under much tougher circumstances.

Which winning formula? 2012 or 2010?

“Debbie will need to build on the remarkable success President Obama has enjoyed, but Democrats will not have President Obama on the ballot ever again, so this next election will be extremely challenging,” said Democratic strategist Paul Begala, who helped run the Democratic super-PAC Priorities USA during the 2012 cycle. “Continually engaging voters, especially the new American majority of younger people, African-Americans, Latinos, Asian-Americans, single women and a few of us old white dudes is, I suspect, going to be Debbie’s top challenge.” …

Debbie’s top challenge will be to tell even bigger lies. Which might not even be possible. But if anyone is up to the job, it’s Debbie.

The demographically diverse coalition of voters Obama and Democrats rely on tends to stay at home in non-presidential elections, and the DNC will need to reincorporate the powerful Obama for America turnout operation into its own organization in order to keep the Senate and win back the House…

A number of Democrats argued Wasserman Schultz was well-positioned to accomplish that goal, pointing to her appeal to female voters and the Jewish community; her help in winning heavily diverse Florida for Obama; and her role in bringing in President Clinton as a leading Obama surrogate and unifying the Clinton and Obama camps of the party (she’d been a Hillary Clinton backer during the 2008 primaries).

At times, she had a strained relationship with Obama’s White House team, though his choice to keep her on indicates reports of those tensions might have been overblown…

What a laugh. These "strained" relations only happened when Debbie got caught telling too big of a whopper even for our one party media. It was all a charade.

Debbie never said or did anything that Obama’s White House team didn’t tell her to say or do. Which is true of all of Obama’s flacks.

Of course, part of us is glad to have Debbie Wasserman Schultz to kick around for another four more years, figuratively speaking. Debbie is a perfect complement to Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, in representing the Democrat Party.

But another part of us is appalled. This is how the Democrat Party rewards its foot soldiers for spreading the most outrageous and contemptible lies.

This just shows you how much Obama values truth. Which is to say, not at all. All he cares about is getting and holding onto power. And the truth and even common decency be damned.

    ” rewards its foot soldiers .”

    back in 08,i heard rumors that Donna Brasilia was considered for the Democrat Chair.

    working her way up through the trenches and political savvy, she would have been a force to reckon with.

    predictable the Democrats followed form and went with Wasserman .
