Does Michael Huckabee Have A Problem With Strong Women?
Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz (Fla.) fanned the flames of the so-called “war on women” Thursday morning, accusing former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee of being “unfamiliar with the voice of a strong woman.”
Huckabee had jabbed Wasserman Schultz, chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), during his remarks Wednesday at the 2012 Republican National Convention.
“Tampa has been such a wonderful and hospitable city to us,” Huckabee told the convention audience. “The only hitch in an otherwise perfect week was the awful noise coming from the hotel room next door to mine. Turns out it was just Debbie Wasserman Schultz practicing her speech for the DNC in Charlotte next week. Bless her heart.”
Asked about the joke Thursday morning during a press conference held at the DNC’s Tampa headquarters, Wasserman Schultz unloaded on Huckabee, saying the 2008 presidential candidate has an issue with “strong” women.
“It’s obvious Gov. Huckabee is unfamiliar with the voice of a strong woman,” Wasserman Schultz said.
The controversial DNC chair went even further in a morning interview with U.S. News and World Report.
“Mike Huckabee has a problem with a strong woman’s voice,” Wasserman Shultz told the publication. “He must not be used to hearing the voice of a strong woman or comfortable with it.”
