Debbie Wasserman Schultz submits her resignation as DNC chair

’bout damn time.

Although her resignation is being driven by the wikileaks revelations that the DNC was in the bag for Hillary (a long standing assertion), for the real issue has been her general ineffectiveness as the party chair.  I’ve never felt she was an effective representative for the party at a national level.  Her appearances on the national news often left me feeling frustrated.

Donna Brazile will be serving as interim chair. From what I’ve seen of her, Brazile is going to be very effective in that role.

    The Bernie march arrived at Liberty Park this morning, chanting “Hey hey ho ho Debbie Schultz has got to go.” Minutes later we got the news and a hundred people let loose with wild cheers.

    I almost went to the Bernie parade, but I’m not a Bernie-or-Bust guy. I cannot accept a Trump presidency, even to punish the establishment and their utter disregard for us.

    Debbie already has another job on Hillary’s campaign., and will probably get a great job in the Clinton administration, pronto, just to make sure us little people realize nothing we care about matters.

      I confess I only met them at the end of the march to listen to the speeches from Felicia Taylor and the other organizers. Everybody was middle class, not the kind of people who are usually involved in politics. Felicia is 25 and said she never voted before this year’s Dem caucuses.

      People are looking for help. The kind of help everyone gets in nearly every developed nation in the world except this one. Without more opportunity to earn a living, health care, tuition relief, etc. they will struggle with lifelong debt and probably fall into poverty. Hillary’s answer to our calls for help: “Never ever.”

    Besides, I put on my Sanders shirt this morning and I’ve got to lose some weight. I didn’t want to embarrass the Bernie supporters.

    I watched the video at Fox13 and it looked like fun.

    KUTV news.

      The march got great TV coverage. Hat tip to the people who worked hard to make it happen!

    I have to give the Clinton people credit. This is one hell of a good ad.

      That ad is obviously intended to appeal to social conservative Tea-GOPers, not us. Hillary seems to be under the illusion that she can win votes from anti-Trump Tea-GOPers, who have hated her for 25 years.

      Trump is up six points in the polls, post-convention bump. So much for the phony media narrative that said the RNC was a disaster. Hillary can’t keep going with “OMG Trump” and claiming she and Kaine are “progressives” without promising something to the 99 Percent. As I predicted, Trump is running to the LEFT of Hillary in the general election.

    Much to my surprise, the Bernie supporters marching in Philadelphia are getting serious cable TV coverage. I hope that Bernie delegates will hold big demonstrations inside the hall. DWS will get booed off the stage tonight. Could be a fun week.

    UPDATE: It has happened already. DWS was booed off the stage this morning at a meeting of the Florida delegation.

    The latest batch of DNC e-mails from WikiLeaks implicates them in the sale of federal appointments to corporate execs who donated to the Clinton campaign. It’s going to be hard to cover this one up!

      Probably true, but I’d rather not get my news from Tucker Carlson’s rag.

      • #11 by Richard Warnick on July 25, 2016 - 8:45 pm

        Nobody is denying this as far as I know. On “60 Minutes” Hillary claimed she had no clue the DNC was helping her campaign.

  7. #12 by Richard Warnick on July 25, 2016 - 1:21 pm

    Debbie Wasserman-Schultz won’t appear tonight at the DNC. She doesn’t want to get booed off the stage twice in one day.

    • #13 by Larry Bergan on July 25, 2016 - 2:55 pm

      That’s too bad. I was looking forward to that.

      Come on Debbie, give us the satisfaction. We’ll even let you flip us the bird.

    Bernie Sanders Supporters Boo The Idea Of Party Unity As The DNC Kicks Off

    “Bernie delegates came here with an entirely different agenda than what the Democratic Party would like to see us be a part of. They would like to see party unity,” said Karen Bernal, a Sanders delegate from Sacramento, California. “We came here to push a progressive agenda.”
