Debbie Wasserman Schultz and foreign cars

The Hill says the new chair of the national Democratic party -- who ripped Republicans today for not backing President Barack Obama's auto bailout and suggested they'd have Americans "driving foreign cars" -- apparently drives a foreign car herself.

 "If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars; they would have let the auto industry in America go down the tubes," she said at a breakfast for reporters organized by The Christian Science Monitor

"But according to Florida motor vehicle records," the Hill reports, "the Wasserman Schultz household owns a 2010 Infiniti FX35, a Japanese car whose parent company is Nissan, another Japanese company. The car appears to be hers, since its license plate includes her initials."

No surprise here. This lady is foremost among the goose v. gander crowd. Watch her, listen carefully.

George Fuller

Do you really think she is smart enough to tell the difference between a domestic and foreign produced car?

I am personally embarassed by DWS...why can't she just keep her mouth shut and collect my money?

Eric

What an idiot

DWS ROCKS!

Just for the record, Biker and Congressman Allen West drives a HONDA.

Michele Haber

Maybe Congressman Allen West drives a Honda - but he wasn't the one who made the comment about the Republicans and "foreign cars" ... was he? People who drive foreign cars...shouldn't throw stones! Just more hypocrisy from the Dems.....

Idiots. All Infinitis are manufactured in the US.

Bill

The Infiniti, produced by Nissan Motor Corporation, was originally produced in Japan. Currently, this car is produced worldwide in such places as Mexico, the Middle East, South Korea, Taiwan, Russia, China and Ukraine.

I drive an Infiniti, and it is built in Japan.

We should not be bailing out any private industries. Before the "affordable homes act" in the early 90's, (thanks Barney Frank, Phil Gramm, and Bill Clinton for this bipartisan piece of crap), banks assessed borrowers on their ability to pay back loans. The federal government tinkered in that, and gave birth to a 15 year housing bubble that blew up and sent us into a tailspin.

now, what people needs to do is go back and hear the WHOLE statement that was said before and after- then you feel like a fool, but if you listen to this video. it was edited. get the actual transcript and tape. and Nissian is also in Kentuckey. did someone forget that.
two. the person who has the name as "Alex SInk", we know you are not "Alex Sink!"

i doubht many office holders have money to run out to buy new cars as i myself being disabled can not just run out to buy a new truck either. if i did, i doubht i would buy a ford or chevy because they cost to much. plus chevy just screwed up the silverrado truck . they are uguly now with that long look from front wheel to front and that monsterously giant plastic bumper which is the uguliest bumper i've ever seen which makes the silverodo an uguly truck period. ford has a good looking truck but again it cost 20,000.00 or more to much on the price.noone should be paid 76.00 an hour ever for building cars. A possible 20.00 top pay after 5 to 10 yrs. on the job is as high as it should ever be.then maybe 15 to 20.000.00top price on 4x4 F150 or 4x4 silverado decked out should never go above that price. the smaller trucks for 4x4 should never go above 15,000.00 top price. these car and truck makers are just asking what,"they want", their wish price instead of worth price. No car or truck should ever cost more than a house. not ever. NOW SPORTS CARS I CAN SEE COSTING A LITTLE MORE BY ADDING EXTRA'S TO UPGRADE PERFORMANCE. BUT THEN THAT IS DONE BY CHOICE. THE STOCK PRICE SHOULD BE LESS THAN TRUCK'S WITH 4X4'S!
