Even members of her own party were critical of what Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the Democratic National Committee, said about Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. Among those distancing themselves from the harsh remarks by the Florida congresswoman was the Democrat running against Walker in the Wisconsin gubernatorial race.
As Fox News reported:
Mary Burke is backing away from Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s comment that Walker has “given women the back of his hand” and is “grabbing us by the hair.”
Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday in Milwaukee that Republican Wisconsin Gov. Walker assaults women with his policy positions, including opposing a minimum wage hike.
“Scott Walker has given women the back of his hand,” Wasserman Schultz said. “I know that is stark. I know that is direct. I know that is reality.”
“What Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are doing is they are grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back.”
In trying to re-energize the familiar liberal charge that Republicans — and especially “tea party extremists” — are waging a “war on women,” Wasserman Schultz also incurred the rhetorical wrath of a well known Hollywood actress. Morgan Brittany, former “Dallas” star and co-author of the new book, “What Women Really Want,” expressed her shock and disgust at the congresswoman’s crude association of Governor Scott Walker with the cruel, physical abuse of women.
“Scott Walker abusing women?! Is she out of her mind?” she said. “This is just another example of the lies regarding this phony ‘war on women.’ Is the Democrat party so desperate at this point that they are reaching this low?”
She said she was reminded of the claims from Democrats during a past presidential campaign that GOP candidate Mitt Romney was “killing” someone.
Since her days on TV’s “Dallas,” Morgan Brittany has frequently let her strong, right-leaning political views be known, contrary to so many Hollywood progressives. Recently on wnd.com, Brittany wrote a piece in which she asked if Democrats really want Hillary Clinton to run for president.
If they rely on the fact that she would be the first woman president, then yes, I guess they would back her. After all, it would be sexist to vote against a woman, right? No matter that she isn’t qualified and has no real track record, as long as she is a “first”; that’s all that matters.
Qualifications don’t matter much anymore, and that is why we are in the mess we find ourselves in today. It’s all about the razzle dazzle, the celebrity name, being a “first” – not about being strong, visionary and having a great track record behind you.
The Democrats may win with Hillary – who knows? But after the six-plus years of Barack Obama, maybe the American people will wake up and vote against another Clinton. Maybe this time they will vote for substance, not style.
