Anderson Cooper: Debbie Downer Lives In “An Alternate Universe”

Y’all have certainly read about the brouhaha at the DNC regarding the vote to put God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol back into the Party abortionfest platform (more on that at the end of this post, except for the Right Wing News crosspost, since John has already covered it). But, what does Debbie Wasserman Schultz think?

(The Blaze) CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked Wasserman Schultz on the convention floor how she felt as one of “the most prominent Jewish lawmakers” when she learned that any mention of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel was struck from the Democratic platform.

Wasserman Schultz said a “technical oversight” led to the omission, adding that the platform was amended to reflect President Obama’s personal views and the views of the Democratic party. Conveniently, the DNC chair said a “technical oversight” also led to all references to“God” being left out of the platform.

“The bottom line is we’ve taken steps, we’ve amended it, President Obama felt it was important to reflect his personal view and it’s done. And we’re moving forward and continuing this convention,” she said, adding that she is very proud of the president’s record on supporting Israel.

But that wasn’t what sent Cooper into a tizzy. Even though video of the platform amendment vote shows a chaotic scene, many people booing and hollering in protest, Wasserman Schultz argued that “there wasn’t any discord” during the vote.

After watching the interview from the CNN studio, the always fair Cooper said: “I mean, that’s an alternate universe.”

DWS almost makes me pine for the good old days of Howard Dean. Yes, he was nasty, crazy, and overbearing, but, at least he wasn’t a complete fool.

Cooper reminded his audience that it was Wasserman Schultz who attacked Mitt Romney’s campaign because “it is the candidate who sets the platform, who designs and writes the platform. It wasn’t true when she was saying it two weeks ago — but now isn’t it fair if she claimed that about the Republican platform to claim that about the Democratic platform?”

When you’ve lost Anderson Cooper, you’ve…..well, you haven’t lost much, because so few actually watch CNN.

As for the supposed “booing” many are talking about, it sound more like about half the DNC delegates in attendance were yelling “no”, not booing. Decide for yourself

There’s the modern Democrat Party, in which half the delegates are upset over including Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, the inclusion of a single mention of God, or both.

Back in the 2010 election for the 20th Florida District Wasserman Schultz pulled in over 60% of the vote. This time around, someone should be a bit more successful if they have half a brain. A single montage of her lies should steal the election. However, it would have to be “infomercial” long.

And you are right Teach, if romney is responsible for the RNC platform, then Obama is responsible for the DNC platform being anti-Israel and anti-GOD.

The DNC convention is as corrupt as the DNC and its members. What a blatant sham.

If there is still a democrat member with the slightest degree of dignity, they should file a grievance for that illegal travesty of justice.

* but then, the DNC was never about following laws, rules and the constitution *
