The fugly DNC chairwoman calls for the resignation of the fugly congressman

From CNN:

Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House – and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important – his and his family’s well-being.”

Well, I’d say his days  are numbered. And personally, I hate to see him out of office. I think he’d be a real gift to the Republicans for the next 18 months.  Pelosi will be the next one to issue a statement and by Sunday night, he’ll have resigned – or at least I’m betting so.

And more at Mediaite.com from Andrew Breitbart on Fox and Friends today. I just don’t see how he can make it through the weekend … or through his marriage, for that matter.

Seriously, even democrats have to agree that trolling the internet for underage girls is unacceptable and illegal.

This story is moving faster than my fingers can keep up. Pelosi has issued her statement within minutes of that fugly DNC chairwoman. Others have also.

Update from HotAir  H/t Voting Female Speaks:

That fanatic attachment to power, even at the price of seeing his dignity shredded in the media day after day, is one of the creepiest parts of this story.

The democrat party REALLY is the party of communists

With Wasserman-Schultz (love that hyphenated last name, don’t you?) appointed chairPERSON of the DNC, it’s out in the open now that the democrat party is really the party of communists.  And with this appointment, the demise of the DNC is all but assured – or at least I’m praying so.

My God- watch Ryan’s response at about 2:00. It’s priceless:

Someone at HotAir commented that this exchange looked like a couple facing a divorce judge! LOL He obviously cannot stand her – along with many of the rest of us.

Her appointment really is the best thing that could happen to the RNC, unless they had appointed Sheila Jackson Lee (“when America planted the flag on Mars”) or Maxine Waters (“watch out or we will nationalize — er ummm- er — oil companies”).

And you’ll love this at the end when Debbie claims that the term “ObamaCare” is a disparaging tag:

It is time the DNC came out of the closet and admitted they really are communists and stop trying to fool the American voter.

An invitation from the less elite Las Vegas R-J

A personal invitation to President Obama

The president’s visit to Las Vegas is pretty much set at this moment and, unfortunately for the people of Nevada, it does not include (once again) an editorial board meeting with the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

We made a formal request to the White House for President Barack Obama to spend time with our editors. We thought in light of his newly found desire to speak with conservatives and independents, we’d be the perfect forum for that. And, as we now video important editorial board meetings and put them on the Internet, Nevadans and the rest of the country could see the president respond unedited to hard, outside-the-Beltway questions from one of the more politically independent newspapers in the country.

The president has been to Las Vegas once before as president. He didn’t visit the state’s largest newspaper then, either. He also avoided us throughout his election campaign.

Why the president avoids the Las Vegas Review-Journal is a question up for debate. It’s hard to argue that he’s just too busy. He’s been here plenty of times; he’s visited with much smaller newspapers in Nevada. But he has yet to visit the state’s largest newspaper.

So, I thought it was time to go public.

Mr. President, please consider finding a couple hours out of your visit to sit down with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. I can promise you a courteous and frank exchange. You will get tough, but fair, questions. From my newspaper’s editorial perspective, your first year as president has been nothing short of a disaster for Americans in general, and for your party in specific. I can’t understand your positions on the war on terror. I feel less safe with you as president and I’d like you to convince me differently. Your focus on health care “reform” seemed to distract the country from job creation. Your economic policies don’t seem to be working. We keep losing jobs under your administration, despite massive, unsustainable spending. You say Americans have to make hard choices, but you don’t seem to be making hard choices when it comes to deficit spending. On behalf of all Nevadans (especially conservatives and independents) I’d like to understand better why you think you have America on the right course.

We still have a little more than 24 hours before the president arrives in Las Vegas. Maybe he’ll accept this invitation to talk to the people of Nevada via a frank exchange with a newspaper that doesn’t fall to bended knee at his mere presence.

How about it, Mr President? You have my personal guarantee that you’ll be given the utmost courtesy. I think Sen. Harry Reid will vouch for me on that score. It is time for you to stop the cream-puff questioning from hand-picked town-hall participants and meaningfully speak to Nevadans.

Are you president of all America, or not? We’re ready when you are.

Will Obama apologize to Las Vegans?

Laura Myers/Las Vegas Review-Journal

Obama’s Southern Nevada swing Thursday and Friday is aimed partly at boosting the re-election chances of Sen. Harry Reid. The Democratic Senate majority leader’s political future is in jeopardy after leading the stalled White House effort in Congress to pass health care reform.

The president also may make a personal apology to LasVegans for using the city as a punching bag in comments he made this month and a year ago about how Americans and corporations looking to tighten their belts should avoid dumping dollars into the city’s visitor-dependent economy.

“I do believe you will see an apology come out of his lips,” said Mark Peplowski, a political science professor at the College of Southern Nevada. “He’ll say twice I said something about Las Vegas and twice I got sent to the principal’s office. But then he’ll probably say something more serious to apologize.”

Obama is scheduled to arrive Thursday evening and attend a closed fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee at the Southern Highlands home of George Maloof, owner of the Palms hotel and casino where Paris Hilton and other young stars and Hollywood elite like to party. Southern Highlands is a wealthy gated community in the south valley, just west of Interstate 15.

He's good at apologizing and bowing. He owes Las Vegans the same.

About 45 people are invited to the fundraiser, with donors asked to pay up to a maximum of $30,000 a head, with the goal of raising at least $1 million for the DNC, said one person familiar with the fundraising effort and speaking on condition of anonymity because nothing had been announced.

Fox Feud, just a passing phase?

At least one Democrat strategist and advisor to Fox News has been told by the WH to stay off Fox in the future.

Just more Obama Hope and Change.

The message was, “We better not see you on again,” said the strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to run afoul of the White House. An implicit suggestion, he said, was that “clients might stop using you if you continue.”


Patrick Caddell, a Fox News contributor and former pollster for President Carter, said he had spoken to Democratic consultants who said they were told by the White House to avoid appearances on Fox. He declined to give their names.

Caddell said he had not gotten that message himself from the White House.

He added: “I have heard that they’ve done that to others in not too subtle ways. I find it appalling. When the White House gets in the business of suppressing dissent and comment, particularly from its own party, it hurts itself.”

Some observers say White House officials might be urging consultants to spurn Fox to isolate the network and make it appear more partisan. A boycott by Democratic strategists could help drive the White House narrative that Fox is a fundamentally different creature than the other TV news networks.

Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman, said in an interview: “This approach is out of sync with my conception of what the Obama administration stands for and what they’re trying to do.

“I think they’ll think better of it and this will be a passing phase.”
