Wasserman Schultz: GOP Seeks Dictatorship

From a cheering Politico:

DNC: GOP seeks ‘dictatorship’

By: Mike Allen
July 27, 2011

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Wednesday that House Republicans are trying to impose “dictatorship” through their tactics in the debt-ceiling negotiations. She said the GOP rhetoric could “spark panic and chaos,” which she called “potentially devastating” to the economy.

Perhaps using mayonnaise as a hair tonic is hazardous to one’s mental health. Still, to be fair, Nancy Pelosi has said similar things lately, so this is clearly a new DNC talking point that Ms. Washerwoman-Schultz has been told to parrot.

The chair telephoned POLITICO to express “significant disappointment in where … Republicans have allowed this debate to degenerate.”

Instead of keeping things on a high moral plane, as Ms. Whatshername-Schultz always does.

“Aren’t we at the point where the closer we get to chaos, the more concern that there should be about coming to the table and compromising with Democrats?” Wasserman Schultz asked.

“This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that … their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. And it’s just really disappointing, and potentially devastating.” …

Meanwhile, from a wildly approving Associated Press:

Democrats say Obama should invoke 14th Amendment

Jim Abrams, Associated Press
Wednesday July 27, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats said Wednesday that President Barack Obama should invoke a little-known constitutional provision to prevent the nation from going into default if Congress fails to come up with a plan to raise the debt ceiling.

This provision is "little known" because it does not exist.

Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, a member of the Democratic leadership, said he told fellow Democrats that Obama should both veto any House GOP plan for a short-term extension of the debt ceiling and invoke the 14th amendment, which says that the validity of the nation’s public debt "shall not be questioned."

We will see your 14th Amendment, and raise you one Article II, Section 4. (Impeachment.)

The White House has rejected resorting to this tactic to keep the nation from defaulting, questioning its legality

Actually, the White House has done no such thing. Which is an absolute disgrace.

[B]ut Rep. John Larson [sic] of Connecticut, who chairs the Democratic caucus, said "we’re getting down to decision time" and "we have to have a failsafe mechanism and we believe that failsafe mechanism is the 14th Amendment and the president of the United States."

That is not a "failsafe mechanism." That is a "doomsday machine." In fact, come to think of it, the entire Democrat Party is a doomsday machine.

Larson said Clyburn’s proposal on the 14th Amendment was met with applause by other Democrats at their meeting

Proving once again that the Democrat Party is just a Politburo waiting to happen. A dictator’s dream.

The post-Civil War 14th Amendment guaranteeing citizenship to all people born or naturalized in the United States contains a provision that "the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned."

Some legal scholars have said the president can invoke that clause to keep the nation from defaulting on the debt, although there is no legal precedent for such an action.

There is no "legal precedent" because in almost 150 years no one has ever been crazy enough to even think of suggesting such a thing.

Still, this dangerous call for ‘Hugo Chavez’ Obama to usurp the Constitutional powers of the Congress is remarkably similar to the call by La Raza earlier this week for him to exercise his "dictatorial" powers. We have too many people in this country trying to give away our hard won freedoms with both hands.

Ironically, there couldn’t be any talk that would be worse for the long term stability of investing in America than this. No investors will purchase Treasury securities if there is even a hint of doubt about whether they will turn out to be valid obligations backed by the full faith and credit of the United States.

It’s almost as if the Democrats are trying to destroy our country’s credit rating. But of course we know they would never do any such thing, since they are such devout supporters of a free market capitalist economy.

    It is a hallmark of evil that it projects onto others the motives and tactics that it employs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz launched a vicious ad hominem attack on Rep. Allen West (R-Fla) last week after he had left the House of Representatives, and wasn’t there to defend himself. He called her “vile”. She has a multi-year history of attacking him personally. Naturally, he was attacked by the Regime Media.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her Democrat Party (she’s the head of it) are working overtime to create an Obama dictatorship, and they have almost succeeded. Their tactics – calling us “racist!”, “homophobe!”, “fascist!” , etc. are those always employed by tyrants.

    They are the racists, dictators, and haters.

    Has even one genuinely original thought or pronouncement ever escaped her mouth? If someone else didn’t plant these utterances in her feeble little brain she would be mistaken for a deaf mute. RiverO is correct. The Democrats are back to the ol’ projection routine since they have nothing else to offer. I’m reminded of a parent who, in an attempt to correct a spoiled child’s behavior, continually says…..”If you do that one more time you’re REALLY gonna get it”…..and then nothing happens. The kid instinctive knows he’s won the game, yet he still has to put up with the parent’s noise.

    “significant disappointment in where … Republicans have allowed this debate to degenerate.”

    Should read: “significant disappointment in where…Republicans have allowed debate with degenerates.”

    There, I fixed it.

    These people need to be expelled from this country. Let them vacate to France where they “feel” more at home in a socialist state-of-mind. A country-wide vote should be made to ask the general public to choose between a capitalistic republic or a socialist dictatorship. Then create a constitutional amendment for term limits on all federal elected positions. Have a special election after those that chose to leave, leave and vote for all members of government from the President on down. I would predict after about a year we would once again be the greatest country on earth and all will be well with the future we would hand over to our children. Bottom-Line these America-hating liberals have got to go!!

    To Ms. Wasserman Schultz: tu quoque

  6. untrainable says:

    Wow. I didn’t think Deb could actually pronounce words with more than 3 syllables. Dictatorship. That’s 4! Giver her a cookie and a hearty pat on the back. Tomorrow, we’ll try this one. Totalitarianism.

    And can someone explain the process by which Republicans controlling only 1/3 of government can create a dictatorship? If THAT’s possible, why do we even need to talk to democrats?

  7. proreason says:

    I don’t know why, but I have a strange feeling that this babe is mentally ill. Maybe it has something to do with Wiener, Rangel, Jefferson, Drooling Barney, Chuckie Shummer, Stretch, the Reaper and the hundreds of others who best articulate what the “progressives” stand for.

  8. Reality Bytes says:

    How the Hell do you balance saving 900 billion in 10 years by authorizing the same amount be spent in 5 months?

    If these guys were my accountants, I’d have them take a drug test.

    And they call us Crazy!

  9. Right of the People says:

    Q: How will Ms. Wasserman Schultz’s brain cells die?

    A: Alone, very very alone.

  10. joeblough says:

    Ye gods! What morons we have in DC.

    Why do I have this wild hunch that Senator McLame has a lot of respect for this shrew
