Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most.Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters.
The perception of critics is that Wasserman Schultz spends more energy tending to her own political ambitions than helping Democrats win. This includes using meetings with DNC donors to solicit contributions for her own PAC and campaign committee, traveling to uncompetitive districts to court House colleagues for her potential leadership bid and having DNC-paid staff focus on her personal political agenda.She’s become a liability to the DNC, and even to her own prospects, critics say.
“I guess the best way to describe it is, it’s not that she’s losing a duel anywhere, it’s that she seems to keep shooting herself in the foot before she even gets the gun out of the holster,” said John Morgan, a major donor in Wasserman Schultz’s home state of Florida.The stakes are high. Wasserman Schultz is a high-profile national figure who helped raise millions of dollars and served as a Democratic messenger to female voters during a presidential election in which Obama needed to exploit the gender gap to win, but November’s already difficult midterms are looming.One example that sources point to as particularly troubling: Wasserman Schultz repeatedly trying to get the DNC to cover the costs of her wardrobe.

She is the chosen scapegoat for democrat policy failures, and the pending expected democrat losses in the November elections. Honestly, Pelosi and Hillary are every bit as stupid, obnoxious and arrogant as DWS but they both get a pass because they are already in higher party positions. DWS showed her arrogance and ignorance too soon in her career – her tenure as DNC Chair has been less than competent – and with Hillary’s pending attempt to claw her way to the Oval Office in 2016, DWS’s backdoor switch from supporting Hillary to Obama in 2008 sets her up for the stereotypical political payback of the Clinton machine.
Not that I have any concern or respect for DWS…she is a shrieking maelstrom of obnoxious stupidity and self-impressed PC twaddle. But it is the nature of viscious, amoral pack animals to turn on the weakest and most despised of their pack first when there is no other prey to slaughter, and no one should be surprised.
She has become expendable to the socialist-fascist Democrat machine.
What is almost funny about this is that she was chosen to lead the DNC BECAUSE she was a woman, not due to any leadership or political acumen she possessed. Now, her big mouth, selfish nature and penchant for causing trouble is becoming a liability, so she is on the verge of being dumped.
Waddaya know, that is about the same quality we got when a President was chosen because of his race. You get what you pay for.
Her being Jewish has a part in this as well.
Not to give in too much to the schadenfreude over this, nor to drink too deeply from the Cup of Conspiracy, but isn’t it interesting that Panetta came out with his statement that blamed the current ISIS situation on Obama? One might see groundwork being laid by the Clinton machine to attach blame to Obama and flaks while distancing Hillary from any connection to these failures, and the strategic resignation by Hillary from the Obama admin for the last 4 years of democrat malfesance before 2016?
E pect, if the slimy witch runs in 2016, a political campaign similar in tone to the stupid blatherings of academic leftists saying the “the Russians and Chinese just didn’t do communism tbe right way….”
