DNC chairwoman: Walker 'has given women the back of his hand'

(CNN) - The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee used domestic violence analogies while attacking Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin on Wednesday.

At an event on women's issues in Milwaukee, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz blasted Walker for his policies, saying he "has given women the back of his hand."

    I used to say that Walker is making Wisconsin the Mississippi of the north, now I realize that Mississippi is becoming the Wisconsin of the south.

    Wow, let's me know I can't trust her words. Angry, slanted, partisan bile. Not very professional. Not very mature.

    Oh, sorry. This comes under the heading of BE SURE BRAIN IS ENGAGED BEFORE OPEN MOUTH. When you have nothing positive to say you have lost the game. Desperate Debbie??

    While one ought to expect heated and over-the-top rhetoric as we slide on to election day, the problem for Walker and the Right is what is being said here is true, and the GOP has no good reason to pursue such an anti-woman agenda- and as a matter of fact they cannot afford it. Mr. Romney lost the female vote to Mr. Obama by 10 points, and the GOP has done nothing to stop that trend. In fact by pursuing ever more radical anti-abortion and anti birth control laws; by assailing women's voting rights; by failing to re-authorize the Violence against Women Act; by failing to address the salary and income gaps between men and women the GOP rather IS saying to women- we don't think your needs are important. Pretty heady stuff when your courting the largest U.S. voting demographic.
    It will be interesting to see how the GOP's gambit pays off.

    It isn't a huge surprise. He didn't do any favors to those that work for the state... Why should he not follow the political masters that dictate his views?

    Can we designate some alternate gender for Wasserman-Schultz? I'm embarrassed to be a woman with her around. On the other hand, despite my support for Gov. Walker, kudos to Mary Burke for being a class act and showing how it's done.

    Scott Walker will obey whatever the Koch brothers tell him to do. He is one of many puppet governors on their payroll.

  14. They ought to change from the elephant to the hippo...

    Hmm... And women make up probably 75% of the educators, so maybe... How many state workers/ public employees are women (percentage wise...)?

    So this type of garbage mouthing is what election's has come down to.
    Some will say it is just politics. Others might even believe that Walker really hit woman because they only hear what they want to hear.
    It is one thing for an opponent to spew rhetoric, but for the National Committee spokesman to do so????
    This is no different than when Palin shoots off her mouth about things that are totally meaningless, but makes it look and sound like the end of the world
    Where does it stop and why must we all discredit the other side to the point of making them look like scum.
    Why cant a candidate simply run on their own merits and belief's. Let us make the choice of who we want to elect without all the lies and misconceptions.
    Elections have become a soap opera of hate and lies thrown out by both parties of this great nation. They all act like little kids that want to make their self's look like something they are not. AND we actually send these brats to Washington to run our country. So now who's the punk? Or better yet, who got punked?

    Wisconsin has been given the back of this governor's hand not once but twice when they didn't care enough to send him packing!
    Sometimes you get what you deserve and I mean walker.

    Florida constituents for Ms. Schultz should be ashamed to send this vile, untruthful person to congress for another term. Florida, stand up on principle and send a message to the country, this style of politics can no longer be tolerated.

    Keep after them Debbie! They are terrified. The GOP motto "If you need birth control you must be a sl** " and their War On Women aren't helping as November comes quickly.

    One she is an embarrassment to women. Two, the democrats are an embarrassment to people. If a republican had said this cnn would not have two paragraphs of coverage, but two websites built especially for this new event. Three, everyone knows what she was implying, grow up and become an adult. Win an election without lying and selling your soul.

  22. Democrat INSANITY on Full Display

    This despicable, hideous woman is typical of the far left "progressive" insane Democrat Party. There can be no compromise with this insanity, just as there can be no compromise with ISIS. This woman is a leftist domestic terrorist masquerading as a politician. Her insane rhetoric is so far over to the top she and her radical leftist party should be condemned by everybody. This woman and all of her type are a clear and present danger to this country, and to common decency. Please America, drive all of these radical far left Democrats OUT of office in November and save this country.

    I see no lib "regulars " on this post..no opinions on this woman's false accusations? Seems like something should be done about her..she is setting women back 50 years with her lies..dems war on women never stops..they want to keep the victim mentality to get their votes..imagine if this shrill was a republican..she would be tarred and feathered and hung at sunset...

    The republican lieutenant governor is shocked at the statement, wow! is this a joke a republican is shocked at the outrageous comparison? But they love everything coming from the gutter that comes out of sarah palin's, and many other rwnj's mouth.
