The ongoing soap opera ‘As the DNC Turns’ starring Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continues to astound its viewership with almost weekly revelations of dysfunctionality.
In previous episodes of the now uber popular soap opera, we have seen Wasserman Schultz take a drubbing in the national press from her Republican congressional opponent, Karen Harrington, who forced Wasserman Schultz to have to answer Harrington’s request that she release her tax returns and travel records; as well as from Jewish constituents who took issue with her attempt to stifle free speech by trying to stop a prominent member of a Miami Synagogue from speaking at an event in which she was also scheduled to appear. Wasserman Schultz’s speaking engagement and the event itself were ultimately cancelled by the Synagogue’s board.(See-Cancelled)
Wasserman Schultz then took another embarrassing blow when we reported that a Democrat Party source disclosed that Wasserman Schultz will be “booted” from the DNC after the November elections. (Read more-Booted from DNC)
And now in the latest episode of “As the DNC Turns” we have confirmed that Wasserman Schultz is refusing to appear on TV shows with an opposing counterpart, either in studio or on a split screen. This information comes from two established Miami and New York-based network TV newsroom producers.
Wasserman Schultz’ recent television appearances over the past several months also provides further confirmation as to these reports. Several other Democrat and Republican operatives have also confirmed that ‘DWS’ is avoiding any possible opposition on national television- it’s likely that media consultants have told Democrat decision makers that Debbie doesn’t fare well in such encounters because of her abrasiveness and recommended that she stay with one on one interviews- say it ain’t so!
The Shark Tank caught up with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and asked him why we haven’t seen a DNC vs. RNC ‘Lucha Libre’ style debate/TV interview.
Priebus turned on the politi-speak deflected the question even though you could sense that he wanted speak his mind and open up about the matter. But regardless of whether he directly answered the question, it is quite telling that Wasserman Schultz is avoiding having to defend her hyper-partisan agenda against someone with an opposing viewpoint.
Priebus did say that they have both been on together on a couple of shows in the past but haven’t been together on the air since late last year-
Certainly I’m not quite sure what, what the situation is there, and I don’t pretend to be an expert on Democratic politics and the decisions they make over there, we try to get on as much as we can, certainly we get out on television as much as we can, when it makes sense. I think she has her hands full down in South Florida. -RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
