Schultz's Class-Warfare 'Lean Forward': Why Are We Letting Top 2% Win Over Other 98?
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 10/18/2010 4:02:51 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

In August, Ed Schultz reportedly erupted in the MSNBC newsroom over being excluded from the network's election night promos. According to the NY Post, network honchos threatened to fire Schultz if he pulled a similar stunt again.

Could there be some kiss-and-make-up going on at 30 Rock? Of all the MSNBC personages, the network apparently selected Schultz first to have his own spot in the "Lean Forward" series of network promos. It aired this afternoon during Chris Matthews "Hardball" . . . and the theme was pure class warfare.

Scolded Schultz: "Why are we letting the top 2% of the population win over the other 98?"

Why do we let the bottom .0000001% in brainpower have their own MSNBC shows?

What advertising genius came up with “lean forward”? Whenever, I see it I think “bend over”. Not a good image.

First time I agree with this subhuman toad.

Why should %2 percent of the Marxist/Commie/Statists population control the rest of us? He really needs to put the heat on the WH to put a stop on this.

I guess Ed thinks we need to beat everyone down. Why should anyone win just because they work harder, smarter, and invest more wisely than those who want to live off the giverment dole and spend more money than they earn.

"Why are we letting the top 2% of the population win over the other 98?"

Because they pay half of the taxes.

I don’t think Ed’s fat stomach will allow him to lean forward. Barney and Ed must be strictly missionary when they get together. That’s a picture nobody should ever have to look at.

I love how all the “lean forward” commercials carry the same message. It shows all the MSNBC anchors walking in early and leaving late.....real blue collar kinda guys ya know. And they are all graciously interacting with the security guards and assistants. They care about the little people.

The Dems have a serious problem with elitism. They proclaimed their communist selves “smart” and Americans, stupid in need of their total rule. Now it has all backfired on their pitiful, stupid selves. So this is an attempt to fix what they did. They are known all over the net as the “smart” stupid people who wrecked our health care system and who hate the constitution.
