Granted, DNC Chair Rep Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not the sharpest crayon in the box, in fact she is not the sharpest crayon in the dull crayon box. But her time on today’s Fox News Sunday will go into the dumb politician hall of fame. She was lead into a logic trap by host Chris Wallace and can almost see smoke come out of her ears from her overworked underdeveloped brain as she attempted to free herself.
At issue was her criticism of GOP Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. According to Ms Schultz, as CEO of Bain Capital, Romney was responsible for layoffs made by companies which received Bain investment dollars. Following that logic Wallace asked Schultz if the CEO of the United States, President Obama was responsible for the layoffs at Solyndra
You see says Dumb, Dumb Debbie “”The decisions that were made at Solyndra that ultimately led to their bankruptcy were those of people who worked at Solyndra.” The CEO of the investment company, the United States of America bears no responsibility. But the layoffs made at companies Bain invested in, were not because of decisions made by the people who worked at those companies, those were the fault of the CEO of the investment company.
The video below is almost comical the way Schultz tries to get out from under her own words.
A standard phrase of Ron White, one of my favorite comedians is “You can’t fix stupid.” Sometimes I wonder if he came up with that phrase to warn us about Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. She may not be the dumbest person in congress, she competes with Barbara Boxer and Sheila Jackson Lee for that title, but may very well be the biggest simpleton ever to hold a leadership position in either major political party.
