Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had some stinging criticism Sunday for President Obama while discussing the head of the Democratic National Committee, saying the president can’t even meet red lines in his own party.
As a panelist on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gingrich said U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., who is under heavy fire as chairwoman of the DNC, serves as a “pretty good scapegoat” to protect the president.
But he pointed out that if the White House was really unhappy with her, it would not take much effort from Obama to resolve the problem.
“She [Wasserman Schultz] could leave with one phone call,” Gingrich said. “She serves at the president’s approval. Now here’s a president who has red lines he can’t meet in Syria, red lines he can’t meet in Iraq, red lines he can’t meet in Ukraine. He apparently can’t meet a red line with his own DNC chair.”
The Democrats on the panel made little effort to defend their standard bearer as Gingrich ripped into him, other than an inaudible comment about “George Bush.”
When at a loss of words, liberals can always be counted on to reply: “But… George Bush!”
