Wasserman-Schultz, Gets No Respect

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-FL) gets bitch slapped by Rep. Allen West (R-FL). Oh thank you Rep. West. Thank you. Of course we’re talking metaphorically now.

Speaking on the House Floor, among other things to do with the Cut-Cap-Balance Act, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz said this about Allen West. West had left the chamber and was not present when Wasserman spoke.

“The gentleman from Florida who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from South Florida.”

West responded in an email.

Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

 Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

  1. No doubt she’s got the mouth of a champion. But when all that comes out of it is rote Liberal demagoguery, its value is diminished.

    What’s new is that West isn’t going to take it when it is aimed at him. Where he is concerned, going back to his campaign office, he has the standing. The big difference is that he is speaking from facts where she is speaking from fear and demagoguery.

    I don’t see it as him whining. I see it as standing up to it, and her. Any inclination to ‘stop’ defending yourself is seen as capitulation and allowing her (and the Left) to continue setting the agenda based on fear and intimidation. They still haven’t accepted the shellacking they got in 2010. But fear and intimidation is all they have. Obama and the DNC don’t have a plan. They have ‘words, just words.’

  2. Ross,
    My money is on Ms. Wasserman-Schultz. She’s going to outlast Mr. Hysteria unless he decides to put on his big-boy pants and stop sending emails, the modern equivalent of writing on the men’s room wall.
