Democrat hypocrisy rears its ugly head

Posted on: May 27, 2011

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla) is the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and not one of my bffs at all! The other day she felt that she should rip on Republican presidential candidates who opposed President Obama’s 2009 bailouts for General Motors and Chrysler.

At a breakfast organized by The Christian Science Monitor, she said, “If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes.”

But according to Florida motor vehicle records, the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car whose
parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials.

Now if Democrats want to push a Buy American political campaign, you would think that they’d check out the parking lot first to find
someone who actually buys American.  For some people who need low cost and decent quality, there are few American options.  But Wasserman-Schultz hardly falls into that category, and the Infiniti is hardly a low-cost vehicle.  She even paid extra for a vanity plate with her initials on it.

Just to set the record straight, our family has a 2001 Chevy Impala and 1999 Ford truck. We buy American cars because we like the quality of the cars. But we don’t call out people who drive foreign cars during this time of economic troubles. Every person has their own criteria they are looking for in the car they drive. But when a haughty Chairwoman of the DNC slams the Republican candidates, she should look to herself first to see what she does.

As the saying goes, if you live in a glass house – don’t throw stones!
