Wasserman-Schultz Spanked by Piers Morgan Over Libyan Comments

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 11, 2012

Yesterday, DNC Chairwoman and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was a guest on CNN’s Piers Morgan’s show.  It wasn’t a pretty sight for Schultz.

During the interview, Morgan asked Schultz about the Obama Administration’s missteps relating to the 9/11 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of four Americans including ambassador Christopher Stevens.  He specifically asked about the Administration’s initial contentions that the attack was supposedly related to an offensive video asking: “It was very clumsily handled.  Was it scandalously handled?  Should heads roll?” To that Schultz went into the Democratic spin trying to deflect blame to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney stating: “What we need to do when the United States has been attacked, when Americans have been killed while serving our country; we don’t need to have Mitt Romney and the Republicans in Congress taking their first instinct, being to take cheap political shots–

Morgan would have none of Schultz’s deflection correctly stating: “Let me stop you there.  Because it’s not about Mitt Romney or what he did…what’s equally inappropriate though is the suggestion that Ambassador Rice and others made public statements which were deliberately misleading in the sense of blaming this video when in fact it has to be known after four or five days that it was much more likely to have been a terrorist attack that had been plan.”

The video below of Wasserman-Schultz is both humorous and sad.  It is humorous to watch the DNC Chairwoman make a fool of herself.  At the same time, the showing by Wasserman-Schultz is a pitiful example of the ill-prepared politicians that help write the Country’s laws.  It also seems to indicate desperation on the part of supporters of Barack Obama.
