MSNBC's Schultz Looking At Canadian Citizenship
Big Eddie Considering Canuckistan Citizenship
Almost out of the blue, citizenship has become a major political issue over the past week. Between former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann's bizarre U-turn over her secondary Swiss nationality to a Facebook co-founder's tax-dodging American renunciation, it's clearly a hot potato.
For a truly baffling take, however, look no further than to MSNBC's Ed Schultz, who's been ripping the Minnesota congresswoman over the Swiss matter.
That might be considered reasonable to some, but he then threw radio listeners a curve by announcing his intent to apply for Canadian citizenship!
Here's what Big Eddie told his syndicated radio audience:
ED SCHULTZ (21:27): Holmy, this is the best story I've had in a long time because now the righties, because I eventually am going to get dual citizenship. I'm going to go down the road of being a Canadian. I'm going to do that, because I want to. It's not 'cause I don't dislike America. [yes, he actually said this]
It's just because they're in our hemisphere, we're in a global economy. Now let me tell you the real truth, they have health care, we don't! And I pay taxes up there and so what the hell! Why not be a Canadian too?
HOLM (PRODUCER): That's it, you're paying taxes in both places. So it's not like you're dodging taxes ...
SCHULTZ: That's right!
HOLM: ... by having a Canadian fishing lodge.
SCHULTZ: That's right.
Yes, this is the same guy who spends much of his time pushing a "pro-America" union agenda. Is he simply looking for an escape route once Obama's regime destroys the nation?
