Posted on 06/07/2012 5:38:29 AM PDT by servo1969
On Wednesday's The Ed Show, MSNBC host Ed Schultz took a lecturing and even mocking tone toward labor union members who voted for Governor Scott Walker in Tuesday's recall election in Wisconsin as he recounted NBC News exit poll numbers showing that a significant chunk of union voters supported the Wisconsin Republican.
The MSNBC host ended up invoking President Obama's assertion from the 2008 campaign that people in rural areas vote for Republicans because of a tendency to "cling" to guns and religion, and suggested that Obama was correct in his diagnosis of what he viewed as a problem that some union members in rural areas vote for Republicans instead of sticking with the union line.

Because they were thinking long term?
Because they're worried about their children's futures?
Because they realize the gravy train can't run forever?
Because they secretly desipise their union?
Because what's right isn't the same as what's easy?
Because there's a difference between selfishness and self-interest?
I'm a union member and a conservative voter. Some things are more important than my own comfort.
‘Special Ed’ SFB (sh*t for brains) speaks...
Excellent questions in your comments.
Special Ed doesn’t “get” much of anything, apparently.
To which union does Ed Schultz belong?
what an A******.
I’d love to see special Ed go up against Terry Bowman who leads the Union Conservatives group here in Michigan.
Bowman is pro private sector union, pro right to work, anti card check and has testified on capitol hill against union political fundraising.
most likely, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists
AS I’ve always said,”Everytime a toilet flushes,another liberal gets his brains.”
The Democrats have been perplexed by the same question for years:
“What’s wrong with Kansas?”
The question as they see it is, why do people who could collect from a socialist agenda vote Republican?
The answer, which has totally escaped them is - morals.
Moral people won’t vote to take a share of stolen goods.
Thanks for the clarity. The Left sees people as simple parts or pieces. In their cloudy little minds, a union member is a one-dimensional piece in the grand leftist world who has only one role to play. It never occurs to them that people are complex individuals who have varied interests and unique priorities.
Ed Schultz is paid $200,000 a year by various unions to be their shill. What would anyone expect him to say?
Liberalism, is really a mental disorder.
Does this guy have any audience, or does MSNBC just keep him on in spite of bad ratings because they are radical leftists just like him?
Good post, Ed Schultz was almost in tears last night over a poll showing thar 37% of WI union members or their families voted for Walker, he kept asking them why they would do that to themselves.
Ed, Those are the taxpayers who don’t work for government who want their schools and libraries open rather than closed with government employees getting more $$$. WI voters woke up and realized that they are the 50% who pay the bills.
So Ed in his wisdom thinks taxpayers should fund union perks and pensions far beyond what the taxpayers get for themselves. That it’s okay state budgets are in disarray because union pensions have become a huge financial burden on their budget. That corporations should be taxed higher so those taxes can be passed on to the consumer in increased costs of products and services. That those evil rich people who reinvest in their business or just invest in the economy should be punished for their success. That liking your guns and your God is bad. This guy is disgusting but any sane American knows that.
...because some union members have seen what happens to workers in socialist countries. Because some union members have seen what is happening in Greece. Because some union members resent the hate-soaked intimidation that keeps them from daring to question the union. Because some union members don’t like being forced to work hard only to have their pay confiscated for the union. Because some union members see their non-union buddies becoming successful and living high as free employees or business owners. Because some union members resent their coworkers who slack off or behave badly but still keep their job and get paid the same. Because some union workers wish they would be rewarded for working harder than their slacker coworkers. Because some union workers see what union pay does to motivation and work ethic. Because some union workers resent their dues going to corrupt political party members instead of service to the union members. Because some union members love freedom and love America.
Near the end of Crazy Ed's monologue, he said that the union should discuss at their "war table" this problem of members voting for Republicans.
Really, Crazy Ed?
That kind of rhetoric gets politicians shot. Or so you said a couple of years ago.
servo, there’s nothing I could add to your excellent post.
Would that more Americans had your perspective.
