President Obama has asked Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to stay on for another term as Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairwoman following his party’s trouncing of the Republican Party during the 2012 general election. (Politico)
It seems as if Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz is going to accept the President’s request, but would first have to be re-elected by her fellow DNC committee members this coming January.
Why wouldn’t she accept another term as DNC Chairwoman? After all, the dirty truth of the matter is that Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz` and the Democrat party beat the Republicans, and they need to be commended for a well-played campaign that leads to victory for them.
Many of you know the kind of ‘love-hate’ history between the congresswoman and me, especially over the past year where I have called her out on some very questionable campaign practices, while she has had me booted from public events she was attending and/or speaking at. Her staff and campaign have even tried to discount me by telling reporters that I was a ‘paid Republican operative,’ simply to try to discredit The Shark Tank.
Two weeks back, I attended a ‘Rally for Israel’ event in Miami where the congresswoman, Senator Rubio, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen were all in attendance. I spoke to the congresswoman and congratulated her on winning her congressional race, but only after our very friendly greeting that consisted of a traditional kiss on the cheek.
Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz and I have our distinct jobs to do, and we both know how polar opposite our political positions are, yet we both can agree that there has to be a certain level of respect between us, regardless of those opposing views.
But things were not so rosy prior to the 2012 election night victory for the DNC chair and President Obama. You will remember that over the summer, a top Democrat official close to both parties divulged that Wasserman Schultz would not be back as DNC Chair after the elections, because the President was fed up with her antics and over-the-top rhetoric.
This firing was in anticipation of a possible Obama presidential loss, and/or more Democrat congressional loses in both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
So it seems as if all is well in Obamaland. With President Obama hinting that he would be willing to work with Republican lawmakers (highly doubtful that he will), will Wasserman Schultz tone down her leftist rhetoric in order to help the President’s supposed ‘make-nice with Republicans’ campaign seem more palatable or even believable?
