Sorry! I couldn’t resist. And now …
in light of the hullaballoo over former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comments to the effect that he sometimes wonders whether Barry Obama loves his country, let’s take a second look at something Debbie Wasserman Schultz (above, with Obama) said in 2012 about former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, when he was running for president:
It would be nice if we had a candidate for president who was committed to America.
Funny how Wasserman Schultz went ballistic over Giuliani’s comments. Deb responded harshly, crying out:
Now is the time for [the Republican Party’s] leaders to stop this kind of nonsense.
Nonsense! And yet, Deb thought nothing of questioning Governor Mitt Romney’s love for his country.
Did the media back then hold Wasserman Schultz to the same standard by which they judge Mayor Giuliani today? Hardly.
Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani of New York on Thursday defended his assertion that President Obama did not love America, and said that his criticism of Mr. Obama’s upbringing should not be considered racist because the president was raised by “a white mother.”
Did the New York Times imply that Wasserman Schultz, in so criticizing Romney, was perhaps anti-Mormon? Anti-male? Or simply anti-WASP? (Are Mormons Protestant? Oh, let’s not get into arcane theological questions.)
While we’re picking on Deb, we may as well note that she (allegedly) fully intended to personally besmirch her purported friend and Dear Leader Barry, should he attempt to oust her from DNC leadership:
According to Politico, “when she sensed Obama was considering replacing her as chair in 2013, she began to line up supporters to suggest the move was both anti-woman and anti-Semitic.”
