Favored Libtalker Suddenly Claims Presidential Disapproval


Partisan Talker Schultz Now Seeks Distance From Obama


The same libtalker granted special access to the White House for front-row seats at press events is now working feverishly to distance himself from the president.

Hot-headed Ed Schultz, perhaps the only lefty host with direct ties to the Democratic Party, now even claims Obama dislikes him.

Schultz is heard in syndication and seen daily on MSNBC's Ed Show. This clip, featuring an unusually angry (even for Ed!) Schultz, is from the radio broadcast:

SCHULTZ (21:29): So, DAMN YOU if you think I'm on some cheer team, Rob. I take offense to that!

I'm FOR the people! I'm FOR the little guy! I'm FOR those who don't have a voice.

Considering the way Schultz has adamantly supported Obama so strongly and the depth of the political ties between the two, this rant has special significance. Is it a sign Schultz sees breaking from Barack's sinking poll numbers necessary for career survival?

  • Ed's just peeved Obama didn't invite him to the Big Kids' table at the White House, instead choosing MSNBC's "cool kids," Olby and Maddow.

    Book it: Eddie's tantrum is a one shot deal; he'll be back in the fold by Friday.

  • Shultz is such a transparent a-hole.

  • sounds like Ed was about to blow a gasket there. IF...and it's a big IF here with Ed...he handled this the right way it's a play out of conservative talk where hosts will daily tell their audience how they disagree with party leadership. Ed did not do that however...he goes off the deep end.
