In a piece entitled "Book: Wasserman Schultz Most Unpopular Obama Campaign Surrogate", The Weekly Standard today quotes a newly released ebook from Glenn Thrush of Politico:
Many of Obama’s advisers have quietly begun questioning whether they should have picked Wasserman Schultz, an outspoken Florida congresswoman, as his DNC chairwoman. She has clashed with Chicago over her choice of staff and air-time on national TV shows — and they think she comes across as too partisan over the airwaves.
Obama’s brain trust secretly commissioned pollster David Binder to conduct an internal focus study of the popularity of top Obama campaign surrogates. Number one was former press secretary Robert Gibbs, followed by Cutter. Traveling press secretary Jen Psaki, who was added to a second study, was third. Axelrod, Plouffe and current White House press secretary Jay Carney were bunched in the middle. Wasserman Schultz ranked at the bottom.
You have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally -- and very transparently -- block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates than Republican candidates.
THAT Debbie Wasserman Schultz? How could she possibly rank as the most unpopular among the party faithful, when it's acutely obvious that such inflammatory rhetoric is wildly popular with the "base*"!?
