Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, whom I thought very highly of during the presidential campaign even though I opposed her candidate, Hillary Clinton, seems to have gone completely around the bend. She appeared on Hardball tonight where she agreed that the public’s view of the Democratic Party is very negative, but said that the party would do very well in the fall election because, while the party as a whole might be in big trouble, individual candidates were doing just fine in their districts.
Sort of reminded me of the businessman who said that he priced his products at 10% below what it cost him to produce them and then stayed in business because he “made it up on volume.”
She then mounted a campaign of terror against Republicans, which she repeated and expanded upon on Countdown, asserting that Republicans will do pretty much every evil thing that you can think of short of killing all first born sons if you vote for them. She criticized them for being unwilling to talk about jobs and the economy while, herself, not talking about what Democrats have done or will do regarding jobs and the economy. She cannot, of course talk much about what Democrats have done about jobs, because they haven’t done much.
The closer we get to the elections, the more this campaign deteriorates into utter nonsense.
