    Just got back from Foxcatcher and yes I'm a moviholic. Big build up for the three lead actors (Carrell, Tatum, and Ruffalo). If your comment is Who dat? You probably clicked onto the wrong thread. Save us all some time. Possible support nomination for Ruffalo and Tatum as the Schultz brothers, probably the two best known and influential collegiate and US Olympic wrestlers. Carrell plays John E. du Pont in a tour de force. Possiblly best actor nom. If you're used to the comic actor, the Office, 40 year old virgin etc., you may be very surprised at how well...

    Let the soul-searching begin. “Our party has a problem,” says Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Broward County congresswoman and Democratic National Committee chairwoman, in a new video responding to her party’s midterm shellacking by the GOP. **SNIP** “We know we’re right on the issues. The American people believe in the causes we’re fighting for. But the electoral success we have when our presidential nominee is able to make the case to the country as a whole doesn’t translate in other elections. That’s why we lost in 2010. And it’s why we lost on Tuesday. We’ve got to do better.”

    Wasserman Schultz: GOP 'un-American' for seeking answers to Benghazi attackBy: Joe Newby October 11, 2012 According to Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Republicans are "un-American" for seeking answers to the terror attack in Benghazi on September 11, the Washington Post reported Thursday. ”It is irresponsible and un-American, quite frankly, for my Republican colleagues in Congress to be jumping on this immediately as a political opportunity,” she told CNN's Piers Morgan. **SNIP** "Piers, it is not, it is not OK for you to be saying that the administration was putting out completely false statements. They put out information that they had at...

    Wasserman Schultz, Harrington face final month of campaignBy Kathleen Haughney, Tallahassee Bureau October 7, 2012 TALLAHASSEE - So what may lie ahead for South Florida's most visible woman politician? Four-term U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has been talked about as a future House Speaker, a future governor, even a potential member of the Obama administration if it wins re-election. But, first the 46-year-old Weston resident must get past a determined restaurateur from Davie who is hoping to be the Republican who pierces the Democratic National Committee chair's armor. Karen Harrington, 48, who lost to Wasserman Schultz in 2010, is hoping...

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz's Popularity Takes a NosediveBy: Nancy Smith | Posted: September 14, 2012 3:55 AM **SNIP** Problems for the DNC chair began the week of the Republican National Convention in Tampa. In a fundraising letter Wasserman Schultz claimed that GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney had directly intervened in the writing of the party’s platform on policies regarding abortion. The letter quotes its source as the Los Angeles Times, but as many media outlets and fact checkers have since pointed out, the supporting claims were misquoted and misrepresented in the article to which Wasserman Schultz was referring. “Do you at...

    CHARLOTTE – Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed on Monday that Israel’s ambassador to the United States has accused Republicans of being “dangerous” to Israel by criticizing President Obama’s record. The Florida congresswoman made the charge at a training session for Jewish Democrats held by the Obama campaign here at the Democratic National Convention, aimed at teaching Jewish Democrats how to convince their fellow Jews to vote for Obama. Much of the session, which featured a string of speakers from the Obama campaign, was devoted to defending Obama’s record on Israel.

    CHARLOTTTE – How do you defend President Barack Obama's record-setting number rate of deportations in front of the Democratic National Convention's Hispanic Caucus? Today, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Florida), chair of the Democratic National Committee, told the caucus that Obama has "reprioritzed the people that need to be deported because, they're criminals." "President Obama is the only president in recent memory who has gone to bat for Hispanics, in every sense of the word," Wasserman Schultz said. "[He] made sure that we invested in higher education so that more Hispanics could live the dream, made sure that college was more...

    On Friday, Starting Point host Soledad O’Brien sat down with DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to discuss Mitt Romney‘s RNC speech. O’Brien started things out by asking her guest what most worried her, as a Democrat, about the speech. (Snip) “Well, actually, what is deeply concerning to me is as an American is that Mitt Romney sort of had the audacity to not lay out any specifics at all,” she replied, “but gave us some very nice platitudes about how he would create jobs, 12 million of them, reduce the deficit,

    Republicans see Wasserman Schultz's seat as plum targetBy Erika Bolstad Posted on Thursday, 08.09.12 There's a wide field of Republicans hoping to unseat U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also serves as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, but so far, the candidates have spent more time bashing each other than the incumbent. “We've clearly got a spirited primary on our hands here,” Richard DeNapoli, chairman of the Republican Party of Broward County, told a crowd earlier this summer when four of the candidates appeared in a debate.
