Washington D.C. (April 6th, 2011) -- The following is a statement from Traditional Values Coalition president Andrea Lafferty on the selection of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) to lead the Democratic Party as DNC Chair, after the departure of former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine to run for U.S. Senate:
"Way to go DNC. You found the candidate who best fit your profile for DNC Chairman: a junkyard dog who is mean, nasty, shrill, able to screech at a moment's notice, aggressive, and of course able to manipulate the facts and always uncompromising.
"If there is anyone out there unaware of just how out-of-touch the retro-liberal Democrats are, Mrs. Schultz will underscore that fact.
"Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has a record that stands out as one of the most radical members of her party. That makes her the woman most appropriate to lead this radicalized Democrat Party. No trouncing at the polls and no Tea Party revolt are going to chasten these people – their worldview dictates that taxes must always be headed up, spending must be done with abandon and religious citizens should be neither seen nor heard.
"Ms. Schultz sees sweeping federal spending as the starting point in every conversation within the Beltway, and she isn't intimidated by ballooning deficits.
"Democrats love spending and government growth, and they have no time for any mention of American exceptionalism. In fact, when it comes to the DNC they have a discouraging answer for every question. Never is heard an encouraging word over at the DNC, and Mrs. Schultz and the rest of the liberals in the House are their guiding lights."
Named by Washingtonian Magazine as one of the political "heavyweights" working the Congress, Andrea represents the Judeo-Christian worldview of morality and beliefs that many seek to silence. Even those with unvarnished contempt for Andrea's worldview acknowledge her "ability to disarm - and even to charm." As Executive Director of the Traditional Values Coalition, she is a voice both on Capitol Hill and in the media.
