More "Do as I say, not as I do" this time by the DNC chairwoman

Anyone know who Debbie Wasserman Schultz from FL? She says everyone should buy and drive American cars. Her family has 2 cars - 1 is an Infiniti and the other is a Nissan. mouth insert foot!

"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 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.


Anyone surprised? Thoughts?

  • i daresay many of the people who would take her to task for her remarks drive foreign cars .

    But you see, I don't TELL people to "buy American," then hop into my gas-guzzling Nissan, as I would be branded a HYPOCRITE!! Do you really not understand the whole "lead by example" or "put your money where your mouth is" expressions?!

  • I have no words. *face palm*

    On a side note, my father used to use this line. He didn't like it very much once I learned the word "hypocrisy" ;)

  • Her cars are probably more American than Ford or GM. But ignorance just the same.

  • My Honda was made in the US, by American workers.

    When I lived in Canada, I lived near a Ford motor plant---American company, but not American workers.

    Which is the better choice?

  • What is more American than a Manufacturing job ?? I don't see a problem with this, they're domestically manufactured and our fellow Americans earned a living to build them. Plus Honda's have a high resale value.

    And speaking of do as I say... or lead by example.

    Does Robert Woodall ring a bell? He should, his issue with medicare is far bigger than this nonsense.

    That wouldn't be me. We have never had anything but one of the big 3 in our 33+ years, nor have my parents and my dad will be 90 this summer.

  • I think it's more important where the cars are made, do we know where they are manufactured?
