Debbie Downer, aka Debbie Wasserman-Schulz, was interviewed by John Roberts on Fox News Sunday. Roberts asked her about the Priorites USA ad that implies that Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer.
In the ad Joe Soptic says
“When Mitt Romney and Bain closed the plant, I lost my health care, and my family lost their health care,” Soptic says in the minute-long spot. “And a short time after that, my wife became ill . . . she passed away in 22 days.”
There you go. Mitt Romney killed her.
Never mind that Romney left Bain in 1999. Never mind that Bain was run by Obama donor Jonathan Lavine at the time of the closing. Never mind that Bain offered Soptic a buyout. Never mind that Soptic’s wife had her own insurance. Never mind that Soptic’s wife was diagnosed with cancer six years after GST Steel was closed.
Never mind all that.
Debbie Downer claimed that she didn’t know to which political party Priorities USA belonged.
ROBERTS: Should the Democrats be releasing an ad that accuses a presidential candidate, through inference, of being responsible for a woman’s death?
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: First of all, that’s a Priorities USA ad. That’s not a Democratic ad; it’s a Priorities USA Super PAC ad.
ROBERTS: Do you deny that they’re Democrats?
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: I have no idea the political affiliation of folks who are associated with that Super PAC.
What a difference a day makes. Today she admits to being a lousy liar.
“Soledad, of course I know the Priorities USA super PAC is a Democratic-affiliated super PAC,” Wasserman Schultz said. “But the point I was trying to make was that…”
And the rest is completely irrelevant. Over at Powerline, John Hinderaker nails it
This is pretty hilarious; as usual, the Democrats have no intention of appealing to anyone other than the ignorant.
The political lives of democrats depend on it.
