On CBS's Face the Nation, she declared Sarah Palin to be unready for the Vice Presidency. “She knows nothing.... Quite honestly, the interview I saw and that Americans saw on Thursday and Friday was similar to when I didn’t read a book in high school and had to read the Cliff’s Notes and phone in my report,” Wasserman Schultz said of Palin’s interview with ABC’s Charlie Gibson last week. “She’s Cliff-noted her performance so far.” [ 9/14/08]

During the Terri Schiavo case, she was one of the strongest opponents of congressional intervention…After the controversy Wasserman Schultz issued a statement that said, “… The Congress is not the appropriate venue to decide end-of-life or any private, personal family dispute. … The Congress was never designed for, and our Founding Fathers never intended, the body to make these kinds of decisions. … I am worried when members of Congress and the President try to overstep over twenty court rulings on a case that had gone on for years. … I am worried when the federal government attempts to step between a husband and a wife because members of Congress believe they know better.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz for being pro open border, pro abortion, pro the Fed meddling in our healthcare and education, for being against national security interests with the war on terror, for trying to relive the past and continue to bash a president who is no longer in office, for voting to regulate the internet, for buying into the Green Hysteria, and most lately for inclusion of pedophiles as a protected class when it comes to “hate crimes”, and for generally promoting thought crime legislation in general. Simply put you are on the opposite side on virtually every issue, and therefore I believe you have earned a red, white, and blue:
