‘Come on Gretchen!’: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Has Another Contentious Interview on ‘Fox & Friends

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had some heated appearances on Fox News and an interview Wednesday was no exception.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends” host Gretchen Carlson, the Florida congresswoman grew increasingly impatient on the subject of rising gas prices after Carlson played a video of her criticizing then-President George W. Bush over the same issue and asking why President Barack Obama doesn’t deserve similar treatment when prices are even higher.

“You I think back then felt the president could have done something about lowering the gas prices,” Carlson started off. “What do you say now that gas prices are going to reach $5 a gallon under President Obama?”

“What I was referring to in that speech, as I have for many years, is that focusing on fossil fuels and continuing the ‘drill baby drill’ strategy that President Obama rightly referred to the other day in south Florida as a bumper sticker, not an energy policy, is not the way to go,” Wasserman Schultz said. “We are not going to address gas prices over the long-term because there is — there is no president in the short-term that can really change policy and impact gas prices in a significant way.”

She went on to point out that the U.S. has seen “more domestic energy production than we’ve had in eight years” and now needs to make sure to invest in wind, solar and hydroelectric power.

“But a lot of Americans are wondering what’s going to happen now and a lot of those things take time,” Carlson said.

“Affecting gas prices takes time,” Wasserman Schultz replied. “You’re absolutely right.”

“You brought up drilling and I want you to look at this map, because under President Bush versus under President Obama, there is a stark difference as to the amount of drilling that’s going on here domestically,” Carlson said as the map was shown on screen. “This is under President Bush and this is under –”

“I’m sorry, Gretchen,” Wasserman Schultz interjected. “I can’t see the map here.”

“Basically it shows that there was a lot more drilling going on under President Bush than under President Obama,” Carlson said.

“No, right now there is more — ” Wasserman Schultz began.

“Do you believe also — ” Carlson cut in.

“No, no, no, excuse me. Excuse me!” Wasserman Schultz said.

“The policies were enacted by President Bush,” Carlson said.

“Come on Gretchen!” Wasserman Schultz chastised. “If you’re going to make a comment, please let me respond. There’s more domestic energy production now than at any time in the last eight years.”

“I’m running out of time and I really want to get to the question about whether or not a president can actually do something about gas prices,” Carlson said.

With Wasserman Schultz again acknowledging no immediate short-term to alleviate rising prices, she went back to the importance of an “all of the above” strategy, repeating the point about expanded domestic energy production under Obama.

“Right, and I went back to the fact that many people say that was because of the policies enacted under President Bush,” Carlson responded.

“No, no, that would be the policies enacted under President Obama,” Wasserman Schultz said.

  2. Andrew Breitbart dies of ‘natural causes’

    DEVELOPING …

    Widely read conservative Internet publisher Andrew Breitbart has died, his attorney confirms.

    The websites he founded ran a statement Thursday morning announcing that Breitbart, 43, died “unexpectedly from natural causes” in Los Angeles shortly after midnight.

    “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior,” the article on the site said. “Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.”

    Breitbart was a prolific commentator who founded several websites devoted to covering politics, entertainment and everything in between. Earlier in his career, he worked for the Drudge Report before breaking off to start his own outlets — including Big Government, Big Hollywood and Breitbart.tv.

    The statement on his sites quoted the concluding passage from his book, Righteous Indignation.

    “I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and-famously-I enjoy making enemies. Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I’ve lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I’ve gained hundreds, thousands — who knows? — of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night.”

    The statement said: “Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us.”
