Radio host Ed Schultz isn’t the only Schultz schultzing his mouth off this week.
Debbie Wasserman Shultz, new head of the Democratic National Committee, has just announced that the Republican party is anti-woman:
In an emotional assault on the Republicans, new Democratic Party Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz today called the GOP agenda “anti-women” and “a war on women” that will backfire on Republicans in the 2012 election and provide a cushion for President Obama’s re-election bid.
“It’s just so hard for me to grasp how they could be so anti-women as they are,” she said at a breakfast roundtable with reporters.
Doncha just love that “emotional assault?” Among the things Ms. Wasserman Shultz deems anti-woman: the plan to reform Medicare and attempts to cut government spending.
Well, Debbie, I am a woman, too. I know that if we don’t reform Medicare, we not only won’t have Medicare sometime in the not-all-distant-future, but U.S. dept will implode. As a woman, I fear this. As for spending, since I am a taxpayer (yes, I am in that nearly 60 percent of the population with some skin in the game), I want spending slashed. So many government programs are wasteful and actually harm the very people they were ostensibly set up to help. Oh, yes, and they cost this woman too much money.
The Independent Women’s Forum was founded partly because the media was always going to spokespersons who claimed to represent “women” but who didn’t represent our views. 2012 is going to see a lot of this. Join us to get the real views of real women across in the media!
This just in: Republican women in Congress have responded to Wasserman Schultz’s slur, and the Weekly Standard has their statement.
