Anderson Cooper: Debbie Downer Lives In “An Alternate Universe”


Y’all have certainly read about the brouhaha at the DNC regarding the vote to put God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol back into the Party abortionfest platform (more on that at the end of this post, except for the Right Wing News crosspost, since John has already covered it). But, what does Debbie Wasserman Schultz think?

(The Blaze) CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked Wasserman Schultz on the convention floor how she felt as one of “the most prominent Jewish lawmakers” when she learned that any mention of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel was struck from the Democratic platform.

Wasserman Schultz said a “technical oversight” led to the omission, adding that the platform was amended to reflect President Obama’s personal views and the views of the Democratic party. Conveniently, the DNC chair said a “technical oversight” also led to all references to“God” being left out of the platform.

“The bottom line is we’ve taken steps, we’ve amended it, President Obama felt it was important to reflect his personal view and it’s done. And we’re moving forward and continuing this convention,” she said, adding that she is very proud of the president’s record on supporting Israel.

But that wasn’t what sent Cooper into a tizzy. Even though video of the platform amendment vote shows a chaotic scene, many people booing and hollering in protest, Wasserman Schultz argued that “there wasn’t any discord” during the vote.

After watching the interview from the CNN studio, the always fair Cooper said: “I mean, that’s an alternate universe.”

DWS almost makes me pine for the good old days of Howard Dean. Yes, he was nasty, crazy, and overbearing, but, at least he wasn’t a complete fool.

Cooper reminded his audience that it was Wasserman Schultz who attacked Mitt Romney’s campaign because “it is the candidate who sets the platform, who designs and writes the platform. It wasn’t true when she was saying it two weeks ago – but now isn’t it fair if she claimed that about the Republican platform to claim that about the Democratic platform?”

When you’ve lost Anderson Cooper, you’ve…..well, you haven’t lost much, because so few actually watch CNN.

As for the supposed “booing” many are talking about, it sound more like about half the DNC delegates in attendance were yelling “no”, not booing. Decide for yourself
