She really is the perfect person to lead the DNC, a complete lack of morals and ethics teamed up with the ability to lie like a rug.

(Briefing Room) — The head of the Democratic National Committee joined Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) on Monday in casting blame for the U.S. credit downgrade on the Tea Party movement.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) quoted Kerry’s comments made Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and noted, “Truer words never spoken.”

Wasserman Schultz noted in a tweet Monday that she agreed with Kerry, calling the Tea Party “tyrants” who blocked a more comprehensive bargain on the debt ceiling.

The White House also indicated on Saturday that Standard & Poor’s downgrade could have been avoided if congressional leaders had reached the “grand bargain” promoted by President Obama.
