DWS: We Don't Elect Leaders to Create Jobs or Something

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, who famously claimed that "we own this economy" a couple of months ago has suddenly changed her tune. Now we all have to work together!

How special.

Weird, though, how just last week she was gushing over how many jobs Obama's proposed massive tax increase would create.

In August she claimed Obama was in "remarkably good shape."
"The president is in actually remarkably good shape given that he is still struggling to help pull our economy out of the Republican recession that he inherited. His numbers are still strong; he still has widespread support," Wasserman Schultz responded. "If anyone is in trouble, it is the Republican Party."
So if Republicans are in such trouble, why does she now want to "work together" with them?

Strange rhetoric coming a day after this performance.
DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) on Tuesday said the nationwide Occupy Wall Street protests are “symbolic of the frustration that middle class folks and working people feel that the wealthy always seem to have the wind at their backs.”

Appearing on MSNBC, Wasserman Schultz criticized Republicans for focusing on President Obama's job performance instead of developing proposals to help the middle class. She said the GOP's agenda would only “fatten the wallets of people who are already quite fortunate.”

“We understand their frustration, we applaud their activism and hopefully they’re going to help get the Republicans in Washington’s attention so we shift the Republican’s focus from just Barack Obama’s job, to everyone’s job,” she said of the protesters.
In other words, forget the miserable failure in the White House and divert your attention elsewhere.

Update: I'm sensing a new meme here.
First lady Michelle Obama addressed a DNC fundraiser at a private residence in D.C. Tuesday night, emphasizing the importance of working together during difficult economic times.

She continued to push for her husband's jobs bill which earlier stalled in the Senate. While stressing that it would help stimulate the economy, she said the bill was part of Americans' obligation to help each other.
But I thought this was such a downright mean country?
