Missed this in October. I agree that Debbie WS should have known about the kill list.

She gave a flip curt response to the interviewer. I guess she has heard more about the situation since then. This is how people come across when they get all wrapped up in talking points and forget to be honest and sincere.

From The Guardian in October

That Obama has a "kill list" has been known since January, 2010, and has been widely reported and discussed in every major American newspaper since April 2010. A major controversy over chronic White House leaks often featured complaints about this article (New York Times, 5 June 2012: "Senators to Open Inquiry Into 'Kill List' and Iran Security Leaks"). The Attorney General, Eric Holder, gave a major speech defending it.

But Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Democratic Congresswoman from Florida and the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, does not know about any of this. She has never heard of any of it. She has managed to remain completely ignorant about the fact that President Obama has asserted and exercised the power to secretly place human beings, including US citizens, on his "kill list" and then order the CIA to extinguish their lives.

Just marvel at this stunning, completely inexcusable two-minute display of wholesale ignorance by this elected official and DNC chair. Here she is after the second presidential debate being asked by Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change about the "kill list" and whether Romney should be trusted with this power. She doesn't defend the "kill list". She doesn't criticize it. She makes clear that she has never heard of it and then contemptuously treats Rudkowski like he is some sort of frivolous joke for thinking that it is real

1. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a smart articulate women, so how come the reporters know about this

kill list and she does not?

10. I totally disagree. I've seen her on Bill Maher and other shows, and I'm always appalled at

how uninformed she is. That the Dems put her in charge, instead of a dynamite package like Howard Dean, just tells me the party leaders want someone who is completely subservient.

13. Howard Dean is and was the best thing to happen in a long time for those who want all of

the people in this country to matter... And the fact that some in the Gop want to adopt his 50 state strategy should be a warning to the Dems. to wake up and put him back in charge...

Those of us who speak out are not really welcome.

2. I think she's lying. She's too connected not to know about it.

Interesting clip.

3. She probably did know.......

I had this go around with a Tea Bagger client over Benghazy.
It would be wonderful if our government could be totally transparent with us and tell us everything.
Unfortunately their are 'bad guys' out their and sometimes it get's a little like that old Mad Magisine Spy vs. Spy stuff.
It's not that I approve of things of that nature or blindly approve of everything our government does.
We couldn't very well have alerted the major TV networks to send camera crues to a compound in Pakistan so we could have live and in color coverage of Ben-laden getting his comeuppances.
It would not have helped to tell Germany as to what we planned for Normandy.
In this world, no President can tell us the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
That is until mankind matures a bit more. If we get that chance.

4. On youtube for MONTHS!!!

It has 124,816 hits, but is still old news and not a big deal. DWS is a good thing for the Democratic Party. I guess I am a fan.

5. I had not seen it. She could have handled it much better than that.

She made the reporter sound like a conspiracy theorist. Could have just refused to answer or some other tactic.

9. Oh Boy!!!!!!!!!!!

DWS puts personal stuff before political party. That is novel. It didn't prevent her from getting to be the Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. So, I expect the party didn't hold a grudge. Mario Diaz-Balart is my Rep. now, and it is very upsetting to me. But, I hold no grudges either.

12. she is the last person I would expect to be honest and sincere

a big part of either party chair's job is to be totally full of shit at all times.
