Insane

… Yes, a full year after having an opportunity to come to her senses.

I’d say Debbie Wasserman Schultz stooped to a whole new low, but this is pretty much a consistent level for her.

Speaking in New Hampshire this morning, Wasserman Schultz heavily implied that the Tucson shooting was a result of Tea Party anger.  (Video below)

Washington Examiner reports:

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., speaking in New Hampshire this morning, reminded her audience of the tragic Tucson shooting last year — and also insinuated that the Tea Party, which she said regards political opponents as “the enemy,” has enhanced divisiveness in Congress and had something to do with the shooting, at least indirectly. 

“We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the Tucson tragedy from a year ago, where my very good friend, Gabby Giffords — who is doing really well, by the way, — [was shot],” Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic National Committee chair said during a “Politics and Eggs” forum this morning. “The discourse in America, the discourse in Congress in particular . . . has really changed, I’ll tell you. I hesitate to place blame, but I have noticed it take a very precipitous turn towards edginess and lack of civility with the growth of the Tea Party movement.”

Zip comments:

Wasserman Schultz is fully aware the shooter was deemed unfit for trial on account of his mental illness and yet, with no facts to back her up, she uses the one-year anniversary to blame the Tea Party.

She is an utter disgrace, but this is what Democrats truly believe about the Tea Party.  They want you to link the words Tea Party with terrorism.  Will the President denounce DWS?

Wasn’t it just a year ago that Obama stood in front of a crowd in Tucson that had anxiously sought leadership amidst the chaos of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting; a teachable moment that had The Guardian gushing about how the President had delivered “calm amid the toxic rhetoric.”
That moment of calm has long since dissipated.  Where once the President had denounced discourse that places “the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do”, we hear Republicans blamed for holding the American people hostage to their economic policies.  Where once we were urged to talk “with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds”, we now hear Tea Party members being denounced as terrorists.
