By Javier ManjarresBack in April, the Shark Tank floated the likelihood that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman (DNC) Debbie Wasserman Schultz was perhaps on her way out as DNC Chairwoman. We now have learned that Wasserman Schultz will not be back as DNC Chairwoman after the November elections.
According to our source within the Democratic Party, who is also a close associate of Wasserman Schultz, the arrangements have already been made for her to leave DNC regardless if President Obama wins re-election or not.
This same source believes that Wasserman Schultz will be forced to resign behind closed doors and then stage a press event in which she tells Americans that her job as the DNC chair was a temporary one and that she is moving on with her congressional career.
The National Journal has also picked up on the fact that she is indeed getting the boot from Obama-
In the same National Journal article it also states that Wasserman Schultz could eventually wind up as Speaker of the House were the Democrats ever to regain control and if former Speaker Pelosi were not to seek the position again. The Shark Tank first joked about this possibility back on May 3rd when several members of Congress and their staffers divulged that there were whispers coming out from the Democrat side of the aisle pertaining to this.
When Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida was tapped last year to lead the Democratic National Committee, it seemed like the latest ascension for a fast-rising star destined for even higher positions. Some stumbles and an apparent falling out of favor with the White House had changed that calculus. Now it looks like it could be changing again. –National Journal
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi could very well regain the helm as Speaker of the House. But what about the possibility of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz becoming the next Speaker? -(Source–DWS or Pelosi, The Next Probable Speaker of the U.S. House)
But Obama’s reelection chances are hanging by a thread and Wasserman Schultz’s polarizing demeanor has turned into more of a liability for the President than an asset.
Wasserman Schultz was recently cancelled from speaking about U.S.-Israeli relations at the Temple Israel Synagogue in North Miami after the backlash she and the Temple received for shunning the founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition, Mr. Stanley Tate. Tate, who coincidentally endorsed Wasserman Schultz’s Republican opponent, Karen Harrington, was going to address the congregation after Wasserman Schultz spoke, but Temple officials squashed Tate’s plans.

The controversy dragged on for a long week, as the Temple was temporarily forced to shut down their phones due to the amount of angry phone calls they received about the controversial speaking engagement. One interesting point about the incident is that Temple Israel’s President Ben Kuehne, who was at the center of this controversy did not run for reelection to the post. Temple Israel will be installing a newly elected President next month. Tate, who subsequently resigned from the Temple said that he is “not going back until the Rabbi is gone.”
The problem here for ‘DWS’ is that she lobbied the President to pick her as the DNC Chair on then notion that he needed her to shore up his flagging Jewish support. This bad week of press for Wasserman Schultz coupled with the now infamous ‘Jew bag-gate’ Facebook incident could very well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back for Democrat power brokers within the Obama Administration.
Back in May our source told the Shark Tank that the relationship between DNC Chairwoman Wasserman Schultz and the Obama Administration was fractured and that the President “does not want her in the DNC anymore”-
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.”It’s not about you, its about me. – attributed to President Barack Obama to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, as per our source
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.
It’s no secret that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is one of the most polarizing politicians in the country. Wasserman Schultz is also a member of Congress who represents the 20thcongressional district in Florida.(Source–Obama to DWS,”Don’t Forget, You Work For Me“) (Fox News)
