Watch: Wolf Blitzer Destroys DNC Chair Over Medicare Lies

Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had a long history of struggling with the truth.  But you know it’s bad when Wolf Blitzer of CNN has to thoroughly destroy her in an interview in which she tries to continue pushing those lies.

Schultz took to pushing an already well-documented lie on Medicare and the Republicans so-called efforts to end it, and trying to scare people into thinking Romney and Ryan’s plan would effect current seniors.  Wolf Blitzer to his credit, wouldn’t stand for the lies, and hilarity ensues…

Via Townhall:

Let me say this right up front: Congratulations to Wolf Blitzer for being a relentless, responsible journalist. If you value the truth, this interview is a pleasure to watch.  If you have even an ounce of human compassion for the in-over-her-head target of Blitzer’s inquisition, it’s positively brutal:

Poor Debbie.  She’s totally out-gunned and has nowhere to hide.  Her talking points are pitifully hollow and cannot withstand even basic questioning.  She stubbornly rejects the (correct) premise that the Romney/Ryan Medicare reform plan exempts everyone over the age of 54, and plays fast and loose with numbers — conflating 55 and 65 on several occasions.  When she is brow-beaten into finally acknowledging — if not admitting — the truth around the 3:45 mark, she quickly realizes her “mistake” and reverts back into denialism.  When Blitzer asks her to specify exactly how current or soon-to-be seniors would be impacted by the GOP plan, she cannot.  Because they’re not.  The Left is intellectually bankrupt on the very subject they claim will allow them to crush Mitt Romney in November.  They despise the bipartisan solution Republicans have offered, but they have no alternative of their own.
