With the folks at MSNBC, it always seems to come back to race.
Network host Ed Schultz failed to disappoint this morning when he
appeared on Thomas Roberts's 11 a.m. Eastern MSNBC Live and suggested
that racism was partly to blame for President Obama's weak performance
in the debate:
I certainly am not going to bail out on the effort of the progressive
movement in this country. This just makes it a little heavier lift than
it is right now. It was just very frustrating to watch a guy lie to the
American people and not be counter-punched because we're afraid he's
going to be called an angry black man. When I see the president, I don't
see a black man. I see a president who has inherited an untenable
position and turned it around to a great positive to where we are right
now. He has brought it down to 8 percent unemployment without any help
from the Republicans.
