Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared with Andrea Mitchell earlier today and expressed her displeasure with Senator Mitch McConnell’s plan to “shove” the debt ceiling decision back on President Obama. Instead she argued Americans want everyone in Washington to sit at the table like grown-ups and work out a deal. And she was just getting started with her maturity-based analogies.
Wasserman Schultz disputed the idea that House Democrats were upset with Obama, and instead targeted the Republicans:
“The President proposed that we deal with this very big problem in a big way. And that Democrats should put all of our sacred cows on the table. We demonstrated that we’re willing to put all our sacred cows on the table. And the Republicans are simply not willing to do anything but sit on their hands, and cross their arms like spoiled children almost. That’s just not responsible.”
One of the biggest “children” in her view may be Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, who she blasted for not having the comprehension of what the consequences of defaulting on America’s debt would be and who she doubted had qualifications to actually be President. The Republican slamming continued with one final statement, as Wasserman Schultz concluded that not raising the debt ceiling would have catastrophic results and “there’s no disputing that – unless you’re a Republican.”
