“I find your comments … borderline offensive”

“I find your comments … borderline offensive”

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was interviewed by Doug McIntyre of California radio station 790 KABC regarding Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was named Chairman of the Democratic National Convention.

McIntyre ripped into Villaraigosa’s record, to which Wasserman-Schultz responded:

“I really find your comments disappointing and borderline offensive.”

Borderline offensive? Offensive as in ….?  You know she came within a breath of playing the race card.

The audio (h/t OcTEApi in the Tip Line) is hysterical.

She’s the best thing we have going for us.  Keep her talking.

What were Dems thinking?

Poor Ditzy Wassername-Schultz. Like other Deemocrats, she is left to defend the indefensible.

Self-pwning is SOOOOOOoooooo sad to watch. Except when it is hilarious (as here).

You know what would be AWESOME. If this guy screws up the Dem convention so bad that it turns into a Republican Campaign slogan!

It’s probably because Villaraigosa is known to excel at media “relations”, so to speak.

And to think, people worried that Gingrich’s infidelities would be a problem in the general election. The times, they are a changin’.

I think DWS needs to talk and talk and talk. I used to send out daily DWS updates for people. She’s the gift that keeps on giving.

If we’re lucky, what Villaraigosa has done to Los Angeles, he will do to the Democratic National Convention.

Visible to all on national TV.

Oh noe! I’ve….offended you! Oh let me kneel before you in abject apology, offering my jugular vein to your knife while begging for forgiveness that will never come. Right. The Legions of the Perpetually Outraged shall never be content with whatever apology we make for whatever has offended them at the moment. Let them bleat their rage in futility with the rest of their ilk, gallons of bile giving their meaningless lives a tiny spark of false hope.

In other words, sometimes it’s best to ignore the idiots, lest they drag you down to their level.

I find Ms. Wasserman-Schultz very offensive.

She’s a real winner representing the DNC.

I find Debbie Wasserman disappointing and borderline offensive.

And I say that in all sincerity, having watched her from the time she campaigned in student gov’t at UF, then as a youngster running for the Florida House, onward. She has matured from a naive idealist for the underdog into corrupt harridan.

    Ain’t nothing ‘borderline’ about the offensiveness of this woman. She’s the masculine version of Bill Maher, for Christ’s sake. Every time she speaks, a glass of milk somewhere goes bad. She’s Alan Grayson with tits. Nancy Pelosi takes here everywhere she goes – as assassination insurance. Ok, I’m done.

This just points to how unaccustomed these democrats are to media challenge, and how easy it is to stop them in their tracks if you just try. But few try. I live in Los Angeles. Our politics are so bad and corrupt most people are numb to it. All McIntyre did was point out the perfectly obvious in a way many of us would like to if given the opportunity. And McIntyre didn’t even scratch the surface.

Professor Jacobson: For those of us who do not live in L.A., it might be helpful to have some links in this post about Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

But let’s not push this story too hard. In a way, I wish that Greta did not manage to get Louis CK to drop out of that dinner with Obama since it would have been so revealing if it did occur as planned (you know he would have let lose on the GOP and GOP women and there would have been pictures of Obama laughing it up).

And yes, Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the gift that keeps giving. Howard Dean, as annoying and offensive as he was, was arguably effective for Democrats. DWS has to hurt them.

    Came to say that. EBL beat me to it. Has anyone used odious to describe her yet? She’s that and more.

Wasserman-Schultz lives in a selective reality suitable only to her own selfish interests.

Incidentally, what is a “national Hispanic leader” in the context of America? Is he a Hispanic leader, a leader of Hispanics, or implicitly American in each instance? I find her reference to foreign sovereignty preempting American sovereignty to be disappointing and borderline seditious.

I look forward to the contribution of the Governor of Aztlan to the Democrat Convention.

Certainly he has something to contribute to “The Race”

DWS- the face that sunk a thousand ships!

Her comments demonstrate what is wrong with our politics today, not just Dems. They are counting on the ignorance and indifference of their tribe to buy into and reiterate the rhetoric of the higher-ups in the party. Fact-check or vet the speakers? HAH!!

    This pegs it. Obama is the same way. Romney is the same way. Loads of them, same way. It’s the bullshitting stream of meaningless soundbites and strung-together buzzwords. Blather. Lies. Rah-rah-ism. Practiced yammering. Wind them up and out it comes.

Of all the hispanics I work with here in L.A., I don’t know a single one who approves of Villaraigosa. That’s how bad he is.

He encouraged the OWS crowd when they occupied city hall’s lawn, which is now fenced off with hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage.

Police Chief Beck was out on the street with his officers when they put a stop to Occupy L.A. while Villaraigosa, who had previously encouraged the protestors, stayed inside our office, safely indoors.

That’s about the nicest thing I can say about him.

    And don’t forget that Villaraigosa sent in the cops to clear out the Occupy protesters several days before he left for a two-week “business” trip to China. He wanted to make sure that nothing happened while he was gone that would’ve shortened the trip. I hate breathing his former carbon dioxide.

Dems don’t think. They run on bile and fake emotions.

It’s fine with me if her husband wants to use recreational drugs, alcohol and keeps a mistress.

TeaPartyPatriot4ever | April 4, 2012 at 11:19 pm

LOL.. Liberal Wasserman-Schultz and Pelosi code word for – “I really find your comments disappointing and borderline offensive.” means- How dare you question and challenge our political ideological dogma rhetoric of propaganda, aka lies.

This is the same delusional person, like her boss Pelosi, who stated that the Trillions of American Tax dollars of the stimulus Bills, worked and created millions of jobs, unemployment insurance creates jobs, wealth and prosperity, Foodstamps and welfare are the staples of the American dream, that Obama is protecting the American consumer at the Gas pumps, and America’s Oil and Gas Energy supply, etc and so on..

Amazing, and they let these people control the govt., let alone allowed to go out night unsupervised..

“What were Dems thinking?”

What makes you think they even know how to think?

I wonder if McIntyre himself remembers interviewing Villaraigosa eight or nine years ago, when he was a mayoral candidate. McIntyre asked him a simple question (I think it was about Villaraigosa’s inability to pass the bar exam after four attempts), and Villaraigosa said he was offended by the question. Did the same with the next barely hardball question. And at last McIntyre gave up. That kind of “I’m offended” answer works in L.A.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, one of many chair people on the Committee of the Perpetually Offended.

Anything said that they disagree with is NEVER a topic for discussion or examination. Nope. You’ve offended me. Therefore, the topic is not open to discussion (or any further revelations including the fact pattern that led to the offending statement or any rational conclusions drawn from that fact pattern).

I liked the way the interviewer handled her. But I would like for somebody to respond to these people with something more like, “Really? I’ve offended you? Really? Aren’t you feigning offense like the left always does when you want to divert attention from the facts because those facts make you uncomfortable? Don’t you attempt to accomplish this by claiming an emotional rather than rational response to anything you don’t want any sunlight shone on?” In Wasserman’s case, I’d be attempted to add, “What are you doing in the United States house of Representatives if criticism and questions about a prominent and rising member of your party really and truly upset you? How do you represent your constituents effectively if you respond emotionally with personally hurt feelings and personal offense about matters pertaining to we the people? In truth, this is just a tool you use to avoid dissemination of facts you’d sooner your constituents didn’t think about, isn’t it? Isn’t keeping facts and truth from constituents the means by which the Democrat Party controls the voters? Instead of rolling the dice by letting the truth be known to voters, which is what a true statesman would do, you attempt to control and mold what they know so you can keep their votes. You know that if the voters knew the facts and the truth, they wouldn’t vote for your party. Isn’t keeping voters in the dark what you’re really trying to do here with your claim of being offended?”

If people who operate like Wasserman got a load of blow-back when they try to pull this “I’m offended” crap, there’d be more facts and truth disseminated instead of what usually happens, which is a truncation of facts and truth being disseminated in the face of an emotional response:

“I’m offended.”
“Oops, sorry, guess we won’t discuss that.”

Just give me 3 minutes with her.

Refreshingly honest and clear on behalf of the citizens of your city; let me do you the favor on our local MIA mayor, Michael Bloomberg, his latest adventure in control:

Wish you were back on “Red Eye”.

Be well and have a nice day!
