Democratic National Committee boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on the attack against Republicans over a CS Monitor breakfast with reporters.
She ripped them for supposedly wanting to make Americans drive foreign cars to the detriment of US carmakers.
“If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars,” said Schultz.
Yet, according to Florida motor vehicle records, Schultz herself likely drives a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car, reported The Hill.
Then, she accused the Republicans of waging a “war on women.” What about the Democrats? They’ve been supportive of women because Barack Obama named two women to the Supreme Court, said Shultz.
Yet, George W. Bush appointed Condoleezza Rice as the Secretary of State. She was the second woman and the second African-American. The first African-American, Colin Powell, was also appointed by Bush.
Bush also appointed Elaine Chao as the Secretary of Labor.
In the 2008 election, a woman was the Republican vice presidential candidate. For the 2012 election, two of the GOP candidates are women.
What Schultz really meant to say with her two completely unfounded attacks are that some Republicans didn’t support the bailout of American carmakers in 2009 and want to cut funding that facilitates abortions.
Those are valid issues and opinions people in a free society are allowed to raise.
However, like many liberals, Schultz spins legitimate debate into incendiary and completely baseless labeling like anti-women, anti-American, and racist. In the most recent special New York 26th district election, they’ve grossly distorted Paul Ryan’s budget plan as anti-Medicare and anti-senior citizens.
They have no shame in slapping these labels to entire groups of people (i.e. stereotyping). For example, they have accused the entire Tea Party of being racist just because the Tea Party criticizes Barack Obama. Yet, Herman Cain, a Tea Party favorite for 2012, is African-American.
Cain once said “I guess I’m a racist” for opposing Obama.
Meanwhile, the most prominent case of real anti-women behavior in recent times was perpetrated by liberal talk show host Ed Schultz, who called a woman “slut” on air.
