Remember then-obscure Senator Barack Obama's speech to the 2004 DNC? All the no blue state, no red state stuff? Fugedaboutit. Now, he's all about killing—figuratively of course—his political opponents.
Ed Schultz sees Obama for what he is: and applauds him for it, of course. On his MSNBC show tonight, Schultz repeatedly claimed--polls notwithstanding--that America is a center-left, progressive country. On Obama's coming battles over his liberal agenda, Schultz said--with a sly grin--that when it comes to Republicans, the president's plan is to "grab the jugular." View the video after the jump.
Watch Schultz expose the president's scorched-earth plan.
ED SCHULTZ: We are a center-left country. We are progressive. Progressives are in the majority. We have to think like that as a movement. We have to think like that as a people. And the chatter across the street, we learned one thing about those folks during the 2012 election. They lie. They do a pretty good job of it. So when we start going down the road of immigration reform and climate change and fair taxation and public education, we'll get plenty of lies from the right, because they're damn good at it. But we have the majority on our side. And President Obama knows it. And he has set a course for us . . . to grab the jugular and get after it.
