According to DNC boss Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Tea Party not only caused America’s credit rating to be downgraded, the Tea Party consists of “tyrants.”
Wasserman Schultz – never one to let civility or facts get in her way – echoed comments made by Sen. John Kerry on Sunday.
“This is the Tea Party downgrade because a minority of people in the House of Representatives countered even the will of many Republicans in the United States Senate who were prepared to do a bigger deal,” he said while appearing on “Meet the Press” last Sunday.
The Hill reports:
Wasserman Schultz noted in a tweet Monday that she agreed with Kerry, calling the Tea Party “tyrants” who blocked a more comprehensive bargain on the debt ceiling.
David Axelrod also blamed the Tea Party for the downgrade, instead of the debt run up by the administration, according to The Hill:
“The fact of the matter is that this is essentially a Tea Party downgrade,” David Axelrod, a top adviser for President Obama’s reelection campaign, said Sunday on CBS. The United States came close to default, Axelrod said, because “strident voices” in the Tea Party were willing to see the country fall short of its debt obligations.
Tea Party activists, however, blame Obama and his reckless spending for the downgrade.
The Hill reported:
The group seized on an editorial in a Chinese government-run newspaper that said the U.S. needed to address its “mounting debts.”
“When Washington, D.C., gets slammed from the right by communists, you know we have a problem with our leadership,” Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler said. “[Politicians’] muddled thinking comes from a lack of leadership that has failed to face our debt problems or corral overspending.”
A post at Weasel Zippers notes:
She really is the perfect person to lead the DNC, a complete lack of morals and ethics teamed up with the ability to lie like a rug.
For those who do not understand the meaning of the word tyrant – like the current boss of the DNC – dictionary.com states:
1. a sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly.
2. any person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.
3. a tyrannical or compulsory influence.
4. an absolute ruler, especially one in ancient Greece or Sicily.
Perhaps this is what MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough meant when he scolded “terminally stupid ideologues” who “really don’t understand” anything because they’re “so dogmatic [they] can’t think for [themselves].”
