DNC Chair Wasserman Schultz Announces: Democrats Own the Economy

Finally, something we can all agree on…
DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told reporters today that democrats own the economy.

The Politico reported:

Democrats are ready to take responsibility for the state of the economy and they deserve credit for putting it on the right track, the party’s chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, said on Wednesday.

“We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace of recovery, not go back to the policies of the past under the Bush administration that put us in the ditch in the first place,” Wasserman Schultz told Mike Allen at POLITICO’s ‘Playbook Breakfast.’

    If the GOP doesn’t use that quote by Schultz in ads from now until the 2012 election, then there is proof positive they don’t want to win.

  • Which “own” does she mean? ‘Overlording’ or ‘responsible for’?

  • averagemelon

    What. A. Fool.

    Does she KNOW what she just said to all the unemployed, lost-my-house- Americans?

  • Rock

    She does know her party controlled the hill the last 2 years of Bush’s term?


  • american patriot

    Job well done, Debbie.

    Now time to move on to your real calling, haunting houses.

    Facts are as anathema to a Lib/Prog as garlic, holy water, and a cross is to a vampire.

  • Ruebacca

    Every Democrat office holder comes from the state, local or federal bureaucracy. If they are thrown out of office they go back to the bureaucracy. They could careless about the private sector.

  • Rhoda R

    THAT should keen the dems ( especially the ones running for office next year) up at nights. OT, it’s hard typing around a cat that’s curled up in front of the key board.

  • AuntieMadder

    Damn skippy you Demonrats own this economy.

    Whatever do you mean? 😉

  • Rock

    On post #4 I should have added by that fact alone they have owned the economy for the last four years. Well done Schultz glad you cleared that up for us.

  • Mikey

    Damn right you libtards own the economy. I miss Bush when unemployment was 5%. Moronic demonrats – spend, spend and spend some more. I wonder if they even bother to balance their own budgets at home? Oh, by the way, demonrats, thank you so much for DS Wasserman. She is the PERFECT mouthpiece for your party. She is the gift that will keep on giving until Nov. 2012 when Zero is defeated by Herman Cain.

  • Mikey

    Sorry for the typo. I meant to type DW Schultz.

  • rbosque

    When Obama signed TARP and promised the economy would not exceed 8%, he bought it alright.

  • Now it gets fun ….

    “Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

  • Redwine

    She just blurts out whatever comes into her stupid head. (I notice that Barry, Pelousy, among other libtards do this too.) No wonder Rush calls her “Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz”.

  • Lone Ranger

    Whichever reporter asked that question should be praised. It is a great question, and it will nail every Democrat, every time. “When do you own the economy? After three years? Five Years? After 10 or 15 Years?”

    What can they answer to slither out of that question?

    The “twist the knife” angle should be in response to any comment the Democrat makes about the last two years of the GWB Presidency – because Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, and all spending for that period.

    I hope that we see this same line of questioning over over again – so that each and every Democratic incumbent can have his own personal version of this albatross hanging around his or her neck.

    ‘Lovin’ it !

  • bobdog

    Not only do the Democrats own this economy, they’re about to pay the price for destroying it in the first place.

  • Black Sabbath

    Are you better off than you were four years ago?

  • No Man

    They haven’t yet completed the destruction of the evil, unjust private sector.

    You will not like whatever it is they that will replace it. Hint: look to Belgium.

  • Dray

    Debbie Downer is Joe Biden in a skirt,with a more pompous attitude.How does she keep getting elected??

  • SSBN 627(B)

    My God these people are dense. Seven years of higher education and ALL of their aggregate knowledge may be summed up as follows (in no particular order):

    1. It was Bush.
    2. Republicans are racists.

    Waiting for the addition of myopic stupidity syndrome to the Disabilities List.

  • Liberals SUCK

    Same attitude, same nasty look, same narrow eyes, same red hair, same pout, same use of facts, same depth of ignorance…. I’m wondering if Ed Schultz is a Shape Shifter or perhaps a Vampire – they both suck!

    Seriously, is this little witch related to that North Dakota wonder Ed Schultz? Perhaps it’s a genetic sort of thing, or they’re just cousins.

    Forget four years, I’m massively worse off now than I was on 19 January 2009.

  • L.E. Liesner

    I have a question for the DNC, What are you going to do with three matching bookends Obama, Biden and Schultz? The every time they open their mouths, it’s to change feet.

  • toongoon

    Yeah, they own it. Bought it with the money they stole/mortgaged from us, our children, and their children. Send them all to GITMO.

  • tommy mc donnell

    could someone tell me what recovery she is talking about. all i see around me is businesses closing and no one to replace them. people losing their job with no prospects for finding a new one.

    the fact that the politicans really do own the economy and not the private citizen is the reason we will not get out of the mess. until the private citizen can get control of their income there will be no economic recovery. again we spend our income on goods and services the politicans spent our income to keep people from working. that is not the way to build a robust economy.

  • Dave

    Black unemployment 12.6% in 2008, today 16.2%. 96% of blacks voted for Nobama. Keep it up and we will all be on breadlines in 5 more years.

  • Dave

    1.9 million less overall jobs than on January 1, 2009.

  • wow. she believes her own bull561t.

  • Old One

    For the last 81 years the democorrupts have been pushing the envelope for a totalitarain socialist state by prevaricating, dissembling, and making diingenuousness an art. Wasserman Schultz is now of te generation of democraps who no longer like Winston in 1984 after his re-education can discern the truth from lies & hence mouth nothing but lies.

  • Callipygian1

    You can say what you want about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, like others, she did donate her brain to science. Everyone else waited until they passed on…

  • SSBN 627(B)

    Got it backwards, Deb.

    The economy owns you.

  • Molon Lobe

    I take that this ahrpie means we are all slaves of the state.

    So when she says the dhimmies own the economy, she’s right because she means we are slaves to the state.

    You voted them in, you deserve such overlords.

  • Lance

    If you would leave the economy alone it would flourish.

    Do you want to go through another round of the same game? Oh by golly, my vote will surely show them come november!
    It’s hard to help folks that won’t help themselves.

  • Andreas K.

    When you look into a dictionary or an encyclopedia under “stupid”, “retarded”, “moronic” and “braindead”, you will find the photo of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

  • Iconoclast

    Why is it leading conservative women are so much more intelligent, articulate and attractive than the allegedly female dimocrit pols? Could it be the dimocrits have always been losers, but as dimocrits, they can shift the blame to others and whine about victimization? Nah . . . .

  • D W Pepper

    Duh duh duh Debbie got handed a note to read.. She is unable to formulate thoughts on her own.. The light in her eyes is comming in thru her ears!!! Her lips move when Pelosi moves her hand.. She is a “TOOL”.. The Dems will put her under the bus as soon as she stops being useful…

  • This woman is walking, talking idiot, she doesn’t have two working brain-cells. She needs to get out-side this bubble she lives in, there’s no recovery………idiot……..
