Pathetic Debbie Wasserman Schulz on Humiliating Colorado Recall Losses: ‘This was voter suppression, pure and simple’

This is how it is with these Democrats. Any victory means the people have spoken, even when they cheat. Any loss means the will of the people has somehow been suppressed.

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement in response to yesterday’s recall election of Colorado Senators Angela Giron and John Morse:

”The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature and the people. This was voter suppression, pure and simple.

“Colorado voters are used to casting their ballots by mail, but because of lawsuits filed by opponents of common sense gun reform, voters were not mailed their ballots in this election. Those who intended to vote in person did not learn their polling locations until less than two weeks before Election Day. Tuesday’s low turnout was a result of efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win.

Ooh, the evil Koch Brothers. She fails to mention on the other side they had billionaire Mike Bloomberg pouring in hundreds of thousands of dollars, which frankly is tip money for him. And guess what? The NRA didn’t really win. Um, OK.

“But any electoral victory that hinges on impeding access to democracy is a hollow one, and ultimately, the NRA did not get what it wanted. The recall results will do nothing to change the Democratic control of the Colorado House, Senate and Governor’s office. And the commonsense gun laws that were passed by popular vote in Colorado will remain intact, including provisions like universal background checks and restrictions on the size of ammunition magazines. This will make residents safer from acts of violence.

Wait, is it “common sense” or “commonsense”? You know what makes her tears even more delicious? It ruined her anniversary.

The hapless losers in Colorado, meanwhile, vowed defeat will make them stronger or something. Sure it will.

Giron conceded about 10:45 p.m., telling supporters “this will make us stronger.”

She said she had no regrets about the votes she had taken that led to her recall. “I’m a fighter,” she said. “We will win in the end, because we are on the right side.”

The turn of events made Morse and Giron the first Colorado state lawmakers to be recalled. Former Colorado Springs councilman Bernie Herpin will take Morse’s seat in the Senate, while Pueblo will be represented by former Deputy Police Chief George Rivera.

It’s unclear when the city of Pueblo was last represented in the Senate by a Republican.

“Coloradans … sent a clear message that politicians who blatantly ignore their constituents will be held accountable,” said Dustin Zvonek, state director of Americans for Prosperity. “Perhaps this will serve as a lesson that one-party rule in Denver doesn’t give the majority license to take things to extremes or run roughshod over the values and rights of Coloradans who just happen, for the moment, to be in the minority.”

“Tonight is a victory for the people of the state of Colorado, who have been subject to the overreach of a Democrat agenda on guns, taxes and accountability to the people,” said Tim Knight, Founder of the Basic Freedom Defense Fund and the “father” of the recalls. “Since day one, they said it couldn’t be done. Tonight, this is a victory for the people of Colorado, and we share this victory with them.”

    Here is where the pathetic DWS echoes a famous scene in Citizen Kane, where a sex scandal caused Charles Foster Kane to lose the election for governor:

    “BERNSTEIN
    With a million majority already against him and the church
    counties still to be heard from. I’m afraid we’ve got no choice.

    ENQUIRER WORKER
    This one?

    Notice how Debbie Wasaman-Shutlz stated, ”The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature . . .”

    Nanny state beyotch. ‘Reversing the will’ of an out of touch with their constituents legislature is somehow voter suppression? Somebody keep that woman away from the hair mayonnaise.

    ” Those who intended to vote in person did not learn their polling locations until less than two weeks before Election Day.”

    Good Lord! How do they expect anyone to be able to find their way to their neighborhood voting place with only 2 weeks notice??? Outrageous!!!11!!

    Gee – I usually wait until the morning of an election to find out where my “neighborhood voting place” is located.

    Amazingly enough, it has ALWAYS been (we’ve lived here over 25 years) at the elementary school just a few blocks up the road from us (!).

    Ms. Wasserman-Schulz obviously must think that the Democratic constituency in Colorado is made up of a bunch of stupid, incompetent, and/or hapless idiots.

    (And yet, all of those “idiots” who vote Republican somehow managed to figure out where their polling places were; even more amazingly, they managed to actually GET to their polling places and cast their vote….)

    “…right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win…”

    More dead people, illegal aliens and the same people multiple times – that’s how Democrats win.

    Debbie I can understand your concerns. Being that you come from FL, where your constituents don’t have enough brains or motor skills to completely punch out the hanging chads.

    “More dead people, illegal aliens and the same people multiple times – that’s how Democrats win.”

    And don’t forget disqualifying military absentee ballots.

    “Those who intended to vote in person did not learn their polling locations until less than two weeks before Election Day.”

    There they go insulting their own voters again. I could make and execute plans to move my whole family across the country within two weeks if I had to, but these people can map out the route to their local elementary school, library, or post office within that time period? If that is all it takes to keep them from voting then I say we should keep that restriction in place; I don’t want those idiots voting.

    I am surprised, every single day, of the balls (or ovaries, as the case may be here) that these people have flat-out lying through their teeth about everydamnthing. And they do it with a straight face.

    Axelrod, Plouffe, Wasserman-Soulglow…There is just an endless parade of these clowns. But their words are treated like gospel by all the passive-aggressive liberals because that’s the only way they can feel what winning is like in their pathetic lives.

    What has happened here in Colorado Springs (and Pueblo), both yesterday and over the past few months, is huge. She and her fellow travellers know it, and it has them scared. The citizens are in control of their government and their destiny, not the other way aorund. Many of us here in CO have become very frustrated with the undue and inappropriate influence of outsiders on how we choose to live. Yesterday”s outcome is a repudiation of those interlopers. And a strong message to the people that we are (still) in charge.

    Why in the world does anyone care what Debbie Wasserman Schultz says (which may or may not be what she thinks)?

  13. Tuerqas on 12/12/13 at 2:14 pm

    I could see if the standard method of voting is by return mail, not knowing where your voting place is can make sense. And I don’t know about you, but my wife and I only get bills and junk by snail mail so we empty our mailbox once a week at best and do not sort carefully. That is my acknowledgement of the whine.

    Now I have some questions for the CO Dems. If the recall was anywhere near as hyped in CO as it was in WI, only an idiot or an apathetic would have missed voting…or, apparently a Dem who thinks Dems did NOT overstep their authority. Those stupid, stubborn recallers somehow knew how to vote. Either the Dem voters are dumber than posts or they disagree with the party strongly enough not to vote. To mindlessly insult your own voters does fit in with the Dem party, though. Insult and demean anyone who disagrees…
