DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz crashes RNC

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz made a surprise visit to the Republican National Convention Center (RNC) in Tampa Thursday afternoon.

Schultz somehow made it through the massive security perimeter of the convention and into the convention center where the press corps is being housed this week. The convention center is next door to the Tampa Times Forum where the official RNC activities are taking place.

Dozens of reporters crowded Schultz, who was wearing a distinguishable pink suit, as she walked down the hallway of the convention center and into the Google Lounge set up inside the bloggers room. Shultz made a brief statement to cameras inside the Google Lounge about the need to support the nation’s veterans, and then promptly walked out of the room. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) also spoke at the briefing about the war in Afghanistan.

The DNC and its surrogates have an office located just outside the security perimeter of the convention, where they have been holding briefings for reporters since Tuesday. However, the DNC chair herself had not been present at any of the party committee’s shenanigans until today.

How Wasserman Schultz, who is extremely recognizable, especially to political insiders at the convention, made it into the convention perimeter, with aides, is a mystery. Most likely, the DNC had operatives obtain guest passes to the convention that they later transferred to DWS.

    They just can’t stand not being the center of attention. Now if Republicans went into the DNC, they would all throw a big hissy fit and pee their panties ( that would be Barney Frank )

    This proves without a doubt how desparate the communist dem liberals are! They know obama is toast this Nov. and they will say or do anything to get votes,but everyone already knows if there is four more years of obama life in our nation will be horrible! I beleive there are so many more voters that love America and the American way than there are those that despise her(communist liberals and cronies)! obama knows how devastating “the affordable health care act” will be on middle Anerica and is hoping to decieve them with all of his distractions,including the joke wasserman shultz!

    This women Wasser-Schultz is a disgusting as the rest of the demoRAT party. A total sell out to Isreal and nothing more then a liar. An opperative that would do anything for this disgusting adminstration. A power hungry minipulator probally very much like those that followed Hitler before they woke up to find that Hitler had used them. It is disgraceful that these demoRATS feel a need to crash the RNC especially since one is held every 4 years. Should we send the Tea Party to their DNC. However, the Tea Party has more class the their Code (NUT BALL) Pink and their Occupy (CRAZY) Wall Street people. The Republican Party, the Tea Party and the People of America are sick and tired of these disgraceful people who urinate, deficate, rape, murder, use drugs, destroy businesses, destroy personal and public properties and not to mention attack our policemen and women. What a crowd of demoRats. What has this party come to or have they been this way all along. Hopefully, everyone of them will be voted out and sanity will be restored to AMERICA.
