Wasserman Schultz channels Baghdad Bob with some ‘Meet the Press’ whoppers

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was in fine Baghdad Bob style on Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” telling host David Gregory a series of whoppers with poker-face aplomb.

dws0421Besides claiming there was no political motive behind the Obama administration’s Good Friday announcement that there will be yet more delay on the Keystone XL pipeline decision, Wasserman Schultz declared Democrat candidates are in fine shape heading into the fall elections and that the elections won’t be a referendum on President Obama anyway.

Faced with a scathing statement from Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, calling the Keystone delay “irresponsible, unnecessary and unacceptable,” Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, responded basically that Landrieu should stick to worrying about her own state and let the adults in the White House handle the “complex” issues.

The important thing, Wasserman Schultz said, is that President Obama doesn’t “factor politics into his decision, which I don’t believe he is.”

(“There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!”)

On the Democrats’ prospects in the upcoming elections, Gregory pointed out that Senate Democrats in particular are “criticial of the administration, they’re critical of his (Obamacare) law … They’re targeting their fire on their fellow Democrat president.”

Wasserman Schultz dropped another tab of acid.

“We’re on offense,” she said, after meandering around a little. “This election is going to be quite competitive all the way to the end.”

All the way to the end, when American tanks are rolling in the background.
