On "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien" this morning, DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) weighs in on latest in the investigation into the Petraeus sex scandal, which overnight widened to include ISAF chief Gen. John Allen.
“Disturbing is the word that has come to my mind since all of this has come to light," Wasserman Schultz says. "Really, I think it goes without saying, that if you’re the Director of the CIA, if you’re a four star general in the United States Army, that you have to hold yourself to a higher standard and you can’t put yourself in a comprising position.”
Wasserman Schultz also weighs in on upcoming negotiations between President Obama and Congress in dealing with the fiscal cliff.
"President Obama spent 18 months campaigning on the idea that we needed balance," she says. "We have to deal with deficit reduction, but the #1 thing we have to deal with is creating jobs and turning the economy around."
"If Tom Price and Jason Chaffetz, both of whom I get along really well with, don't understand that the balanced approach won last Tuesday, then we are in for a real problem," she adds.
