Well, it seems that DNC chairperson Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has put her foot in her more-than-ample mouth again. Her foot must taste good; she often does it.
Wasserman Schultz, at a DNC training session for Jewish Democrats for Obama, said, “We know, and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.”
Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren said, “I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel.”
So, we have Wasserman-Schultz saying that she heard Oren making a statement about Republican policy, a statement Oren denies having said. Is this a “pissing contest,” a “Mexican standoff,” a “she said-he said” situation? Did Wasserman-Schultz stand by her comment? In a response made famous by John Belushi, “Nooooooooooooooooooooo!”
First, we have a video of Wasserman-Schultz making the statement, so she will have a very difficult time denying that she said it. Listen, starting at the 28 second mark, for her statement.
“I didn’t say he said that. And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising they would deliberately misquote me. What I always say is that unfortunately the Republicans have made Israel a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. And Ambassador Oren has said that we can’t ever suggest that there is any daylight between the two parties on Israel because there isn’t. And that that’s harmful to Israel. That’s what I said, and that is accurate.” Note: I added the emphasis to Wasserman-Schultz’s statement to illustrate the unbound chutzpah she has.
Her response begins at the 50 second mark. So, now we have Debbie Wasserman-Schultz denying what she demonstrably said.
My question is, “Where is the MSM on this? Where are the fact checkers?” This happened in early September, so the MSM has had plenty of time to report this. Is the in-the-tank liberal majority MSM again trying to protect Democrats, or did I miss this one? If so, please, someone at BC set me straight.
But that’s just my sourced opinion.
