Debbie Wasserman Schultz... Out as DNC Chair?

Wait... you mean simply finding somebody willing to say anything solely for the sake of the party wasn't enough?   Why else would they have gone with such a young, inexperienced congresswoman to follow Howard Dean?  I thought they knew what they were getting with D.W.Schultz.  

Apparently not.

It's being reported that our favorite curly-haired liberal congresswoman from Florida's 20th district may be getting the boot from her role as Democratic National Committee Chairwoman.   After many weeks of staunch criticism from fellow Democrats angered over her inactivity in defending against Obama's criticizers, her continued line of attacks on Romney's qualifications as President (which Former Pres Bill Clintonl and Obama surrogate Corey Booker tried to undercut), prominent Democrats coming to the realization that Obama could actually lose this November...  even continued fallout from "Jewbag-gate" seems to keep coming back and haunting DWS.  

(link provided to assist Bill Maher in learning what 'jewbag-gate' is) 

Also add to the fact that President Obama (who never considered Wasserman-Schultz as his ideal pick for the position) has become more vocal in regards to his frustrations over DWS's handling of politically sensitive talking points and you get the sense this has been a bubbling pot just waiting to boil over.

Wasserman Schultz is known to always introduce the President whenever he is in Florida, and he did so during his previous visit to the Sunshine State, a little over a month ago.  Then ‘Jewbag-gate’ broke, and on Obama’s subsequent trip a couple of weeks back, Wasserman Schultz only introduced the President at a couple of events and merely acknowledged her presence at others. Ouch!  But in all fairness, the truth is that Wasserman Schultz’s role in President Obama’s recent trip was already scripted by his campaign.

It seems as if the relationship has soured to the point that according to the source, “He does not want her in the DNC anymore.”

Apparently, President Obama had discussions with the DNC Chairwoman regarding her approach, even telling her, “Don’t forget you work for me.”

The problem that the President has is this- he can’t fire her, at least at this juncture.  If President Obama were to remove Wasserman Schultz from her post he would be weakening his own position, as it would be very hard to find someone that is both in lock-step with his agenda and willing to run cover for him as she has done.

Second, this would be a clear indication to the public that there are real problems within the hierarchy of the Democratic Party.

That was a whole month ago...   Since then it's been downhill from there.   If you thought Obama's month has been bad, try putting yourself in Hurricane Debbie's penny loafers (for those looking for a good drinking game, take a stip everytime she blinks).

Chris Matthews misses her:

Then she was hammered by Will Cain:

Shut down by Jeb Bush and Paul Ryan:

Former DNC Chair Ed Rendell adds to Clinton/Booker disdain over attacks on Romney's record: (no video, so consider this a halftime break for you drinkers)

She was literally laughed at by Piers Morgan after calling Wisconsin's recall elections "reasonably successful":

She was been called into question whether she was even watching this Romney speech she later criticized on CNN, calling it "as vague as it could be": 

And now most recently corrected numerous times by Wolf Blitzer on CNN's Situation Room in regards to a variety of her talking points and quick lipped spin:

(Hey blinking game players... are you drunk yet?)

So yes, Obama's had a bad stretch, but fortunately for him he hasn't been the one having to hit all these news channels and talk shows and actually explain what he's doing and why he's doing it the way Debbie has to.   Is she fighting a constant, ever-changing uphill battle?  You betcha... one I don't envy her for.  

That doesn't mean I don't enjoy watching her try (and often failing)...   and if this is true, I'll especially miss my blinking game.   It was fun while it lasted Debbie.   There will likely never be another blinker quite like you (please God, my liver may not be able to take another one).

No! Please, please, please don't take Little Debbie away from us! She's the greatest gift we've ever gotten from the DNC!

I'll give her credit for the failed effort. To attempt to defend the contradiction that is the modern Democratic Party requires a first class mental/logical contortionist.

Couldn't agree more Mach... I think poor Ms Schultz (or is it Wasserman? I never know) took on quite an impossible task. She's young as far politicians go, and I'm sure she saw it as an excellent opportunity to show her might, even though she got it based on the aspect of pandering to the Jewish American voter. She was hopeful, willing to do anything for the Democrat cause, and in the end she was the perfect dupe... perfect person to chew up and spit out.

Actually, she lasted longer than I thought she would. If not for the whole sending dick picks from his Twitter account thing, I'd say Weiner would have been the more (in-)appropriate candidate. He's quicker on his feet and a far better bullshit artist than DWS (her blinking gives it away... makes it evermore obvious when she's lying).

I wonder who is capable of fitting the bill? I would imagine they'll work up a couple options... one that will be best for attacking President Romney and one that would be best at defending the President Obama and his policies (like they thought DWS would be best at... which she was for a while, just apparently not good enough). I think they viewed DWS as a hopeful hybrid of both, she just never excelled at either.

If you've ever meet DWS you'll quickly learn she's not as smart as she likes to portray herself to be. She'll go the on offense immediately, throw out clever or intelligent sounding phrases to people in hopes of portraying this image she's some rockstar, bullish Dem... then when criticized, questioned or worked over she quickly becomes a scared deer in the headlights and starts mindlessly rattling off well rehearsed talking points as if talking more will make the big semi truck swerve. Seeing her turned into political roadkill is often ugly to witness, but at the same time you still stare and say... "cooooool!"
