Ed Schultz on 'Today': Obama Thrown Off by 'So Many Lies' From 'Corporate Shark' Romney

Appearing on Friday's NBC Today, left-wing MSNBC host Ed Schultz desperately tried to explain away President Obama's bad debate performance: "I think that there were so many lies coming across that stage, and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the President to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Co-host Savannah Guthrie called him out on the liberal talking point: "That sounds a little bit like you're making excuses for the President." Schultz doubled down on his lame attempt to defend the President: "[Romney] was the guy in the board room, he was the corporate shark, he knew how to get this audience done and he was going to run over everybody. And I think that might play to his disadvantage in the long run."

Guthrie began the segment by wondering if Romney's debate win could "fundamentally alter the race." Schultz acknowledged that it was "a wake-up call for the President and his campaign," but then ranted: "...there's been such an effort to suppress the vote. Those people are now energized after what they saw the other night."

At the end of the interview, Guthrie asked if the President would be more aggressive in the next debate. Schultz replied that Obama "has to be aggressive" and declared: "The thing that's so frustrating, I think, for liberals is that they know that the President has accomplished a lot without any help from the Republicans. That's a fact. That's not attacking your opponent."

Here is a full transcript of the October 5 exchange:

7:05AM ET

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: Ed Schultz is the host of The Ed Show on MSNBC. Good morning to you.

ED SCHULTZ: Good morning, Savannah.

GUTHRIE: You are a supporter of the President, your viewers are supporters of the President. I think people from every side of the political spectrum recognize he missed a big opportunity the other night. Do you think this will fundamentally alter the race?

Romney was a shark in the boardroom? Tell us, Ed. How many board meetings of corporations has Obama participated in?
How much business experience—other than ordering paper clips and toilet paper for a community organization office—does Obama have?

Ed Schultz is a wife-beating dog-shooting drunk.

REMEMBER. The TRUTH from normal people are LIES to the LUNATICS ON THE LEFT. These frauds can’t even except THE REAL ROMNEY kicked THE FOREIGNERS rear end in the debate. They have to fantasize that wasn’t really Romney at the debate because it didn’t fit into their NARATIVE OF LIES they want to believe about him. TRUELY SICK PEOPLE.

Did Mr. Ed actually CITE a “lie” that Romney used in the debate?

If Eddie is correct, how can Obama concentrate enough to be trusted when dealing with Putin, a trained KGB agent?

The MSNBC maroon is saying Obama is unable to properly focus when confronted with conflicting or confusing data. Perhaps the result of too much choom.

Yeah. Putin’s a pushover, but that Romney...he’s got that paternalistic Ward Cleaver whammy on The One.
