2012’s Most Polarizing Liberal Politico Was…

By Javier Manjarres

pelosi-wasserman“The most important election of our lifetime” has just come to pass, and Americans continue to believe that the country is moving in the wrong direction. This being said, Americans re-elected President Obama along with all of his job killing and tax raising agendas.

 But besides President Obama, who is consider many Conservatives as the embodiment of an “evil-doer,” who is the top polarizing politico that helped shape the 2012 political landscape?

 While Senator Harry Reid is a top contender, due in part because of his recent ‘Fiscal Cliff’ rants accusing Republicans of  ‘not caring about Americans’ for opposing the President, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi managed to effectively get under every Republicans  skin with her consistently outrageous and out-of-line rhetoric, like when she stated that Republicans were part of the “Ecoli club.”

 While Pelosi, Reid, Senator-elect Warren, and many other liberal Democrats gave us a chuckle or two with their egregiously misleading rhetoric, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is my choice for the top mover and shaker of politics for 2012.

 Take into consideration that every time you turned on the TV, you saw Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz looking right at you, trying to convince you that President Obama’s agenda was right for the country, forcing many of you to turn the TV off or change the channel. Right? Like her colleagues Reid and Pelosi, Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz gave us all more than our fair share of priceless moments and comments, like the time she got into it with a police offer during early voting. (DWS in Police Altercation)

 Because I live about 15 miles from Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz, I have had the distinct opportunity to get to somewhat know the congresswoman over the past several years. Even though we agree on just about nothing politically, and have had our little ‘spats’ in the press, I congratulated her on her 2012 success during a recent bipartisan ‘Rally for Israel’ in Miami, Florida, regardless of the fact that I believe she is outright wrong on just about everything and was  even caught lying on national TV.

 With Wasserman Schultz, what you see is what you get-hands down the most liberal and polarizing member of Congress, and possibly the entire nation. The ‘DWS’ you see on TV is the same ‘DWS’ you will get in person. No kidding! While I have received a lot criticism from folks on the ‘right’ side of the political world for giving ‘DWS’ credit and defending her against sexist attacks by fringe elements, you have to take you hat off to her for being one of the most unapologetic liberals in politics today.

Debbie is ‘no’ Charlie Crist. Like I said, what you see is what you get.

So who do you think ‘DWS’ the second most polarizing politico in the nation, or is it Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren or others?

    Javi –
    I understand the need for you to maintain collegial and professional relations with the people you cover in order to maintain access. But, you have to admit, the above is akin to saying “Gosh, you just gotta respect that Lucifer. I don’t believe in a single thing Ol’ Scratch is trying to accomplish, but you just gotta admire his moxie and persistence in trying to damn as many souls as he can.”

    Just curious, who on the right would you rank as the “anti-DWS”? That is, as outspoken, stalwart, and unflappable in pursuit of American priciples instead of outright evil?

    Of course, Obama, the 4th best president* in US history, was the most polarizing person in 2012. None worse, ever!

    *Here’s the standings of best presidents according to a serious scientific poll:

    Ronald Reagan and 9 others tied for first;
    15 tied for second;
    18 others tied for third; and
    Obama came in fourth.

    It’s really a toss up for me, I despise Nancy Pelosi more than Debbi because… I’ve been subjected to her longer! They make an incredibly nasty pair.

    They all belong to the same political religion of the left or Progressive or what ever they call themselves and I have a few members of my own family that bow to their cause ignoring the facts and statistics and think that we are very fortunate having a President with his qualifications. When I question the qualifications I get the same parrot statements that the msm puts forth and my answer to their claims is how can you prove that statement and I get the shrugged shoulders answer and the verbal,”You just don’t understand”. They are very correct, I don’t understand. Few know how much a trillion dollars is. It’s tough trying to convince people that Obama Claus has a brother named Santa and both do the same thing.

    Most Polarizing: Barack Hussein Obama who continues to babble and blame. His administration, under his leadership, has been a disaster for those pursuing the American dream. Our econonmy is in shambles as our governmemt continues not to face the fact that the fiscal cliff is real makes me believe tha his goal is to collapse our system. Immigration reform will be another blow to our economy and is fast becoming yet another lobbying force. Nothing is changing in Washington. Tax and spend and the spiral continues with no relief in sight for the American taxpayer.

  • AmericaBeautiful

    Most polarizing and most insane of all.

  • Nancy Celano

    The stupid and naive Americans who were fooled and blinded by the lies uttered by Schmobama and the Democrats are on the top of my list. I still can’t understand how they allowed themselves to fall for his Joker-like smile and Jivin’ attitude as he strutted around. Worst president we have ever had.
