Ed Schultz: 'I Was Disappointed In The President' - 'I Was Absolutely Stunned Tonight'

The negative reviews for Barack Obama's performance during Wednesday's debate continue to pour in from a very unlikely source - his friends on MSNBC.

Shortly after the debate ended, a "stunned" Ed Schultz said, "I was disappointed in the President...I was absolutely stunned tonight" (video follows with transcript):

ED SCHULTZ: I was disappointed in the President. He had an opportunity tonight. He created a problem for himself on Social Security tonight. He agrees with Mitt Romney. Every liberal in this country knows that Mitt Romney wants to privatize Social Security down the road, and to do a deal with the devil on that would be the wrong thing to do.

I think the President created a big problem for him tonight, for himself. I don’t think he explained himself very well on the economy. I thought he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight.
