“I think plenty of the tea partiers are hell-bent on doing everything they can to block President Obama from being successful, and they’re willing to even harm the economy in order to do that,” Wasserman Shultz told HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill. “So, some of it is personal.”
When pressed on whether the tea party’s motives are race-driven — suddenly a common theme to explain the shutdown — the truth challenged Democratic National Committee chair hemmed and hawed before saying, “I’m not going to specifically accuse anyone of racism.”
While trying to avoid calling the tea party racist, yet maintain approval from the race hustler crowd, Wasserman Schultz exposed how committed the Democratic Party is to big government:
“They [tea party] don’t believe that government can be a catalyst to improving people’s lives… clearly, we have to have enough government in order to be able to make sure that we can be successful as a country.”
Because America’s success has nothing to do with personal responsibility and the rights of the individual, and it’s only through government that we can hope to improve our lives.
