Ed Schultz: GOP Victory Will Be a 'Rebirth of the Birthers'

Warning that victorious House Republicans may be conducting an investigation of the actual birthplace of President Obama, MSNBC's Ed Schultz called a possible GOP victory a "rebirth of the birthers."

"There is nothing good about losing the House," Schultz remarked Nov 1, on his Monday evening MSNBC show. "[House Republicans] may even be launching an investigation into the President's birthplace. It will be a rebirth of the 'birthers,'" he warned.

Schultz even went as far as to think the Republicans might try to impeach President Obama. "I think these radicals plan to impeach the President," he spat.

The House GOP will be all "about power and not governing," if they hold the majority, Schultz complained, ranting that "Michelle Bachmann wants to subpoena the entire administration."
 

A transcript of the segment, which aired on November 2 at 6:18 p.m. EDT, is as follows:
 

ED SCHULTZ: Well there is nothing good about losing the House. This is, as I've said all along on this program, about power and not governing if this is what happens. House Republicans are promising, what, subpoenas? They may even be launching an investigation into the President's birthplace. It will be a rebirth of the "birthers," I think. And I think they might go so far as to impeach President Obama. This is who they are.

(...)

I want to know why people keep saying that a Republican tidal wave of the House is a good thing. Michelle Bachmann wants to subpoena the entire administration. I think these radicals plan to impeach the President.
