It’s a safe to say U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wasn’t lacking opportunity when asked to respond to whether or not President Obama’s policies were on the November ballot.
CNN host Candy Crowley, with a little help from Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, posed that very question to Wasserman Schultz SIX times Sunday on “State of the Union.”
And six times the head of the Democratic National Committee deflected the question.
“This election is about making sure that we elect a Congress that will focus on the priorities that people care about the most, and that’s creating jobs, getting this economy turned around, investing in education and health care…,” she rambled on with a canned answer when Crowley first asked.
“The question is the president’s policy on the ballot,” her GOP counterpart chimed in with a helpful reminder. “That’s the question.”
Wasserman Schultz implored that she be allowed to finish, and went on to talk about the Ebola virus and other issues without ever addressing the question.
“Debbie still hasn’t answered the question,” Priebus said later. “First of all she still hasn’t answered the question as to whether or not the president’s policies are on the ballot.”
Crowley posed the question again to Wasserman Schultz.
“So what’s on the ballot is a choice for voters … blah, blah, blah,” the congresswoman responded.
After several more attempts to extract an answer to the question, Wasserman Schultz had the audacity to say, “I’ve answered it multiple times.”
Sunday marked the second time in as many weeks that Priebus has wiped the floor with Wasserman Schultz — proverbially speaking — in a head-to-head matchup.
All of which makes you wonder what kind of personality flaw does it take for these politicians to repeatedly go on national TV and make complete fools of themselves?
